To what extent can addiction be compared to reliance on a deity. Please explore why or why not.
brentan comments on Apr 6, 2019:
I think it's about having meaning in our lives. Meaning fills a hole just like religion used to do. So far, lots of people haven't found a viable replacement for religion and are spiritually empty. Drugs are a substitute for meaning.

brentan comments on Apr 6, 2019:
It's so hard to know. It's so downright presumptuous and egotistical. Then again, if you were an atheist with a very understanding nature, you could put it down to ignorance and let it pass. In this situation, I think the atheist is manifesting the Christian fruits of the spirit more than the Christian.
This is a direct result of Trump recognising the occupied Golan heights as Israeli territory and ...
brentan comments on Apr 6, 2019:
I think Trump is guessing that the stalemate has gone on too long and if he approves putting an end to it by encouraging the Israelis to occupy all of Palestine, the result will gradually be accepted by Palestinians and the rest of the world.

My mum used to tell of the children from 'the other side of the street' going to school barefoot in winter. This was in the 1930s. I'm inclined to believe her because she wasn't talking about herself.

BBC - Future - Are we close to solving the puzzle of consciousness?
brentan comments on Apr 5, 2019:
I think he's only discussing the processes in the brain. Most say that's where consciousness is. I don't think so but even if it is, what starts the process, the prime mover for want of a better term? I think it starts on the metaphysical plane and is translated by the brain. Another thing that completely puzzles me is what the medium might exist between consciousness and the processes of the brain. Putting it in a computer term, what could serve as a driver between the two?

brentan comments on Apr 4, 2019:
I really don't know why there aren't many posts. I didn't even know until you mentioned it. A wild guess would be that so many of us have allied ourselves with ideologies, there aren't many freethinkers around. On top of that, the freethinker would probably find him or herself at odds with both sides of the ideological divide. We used to call that 'falling between two stools' but I don't hear the expression anymore.

A Point of View: Is there still any point collecting books? [bbc.com]

brentan comments on Apr 3, 2019:
As far as I know, Mohammad had nothing to say about homosexual sex. Jesus didn't either. The first Christian gathering condemned all types of fornication, not specifying anything in particular. The apostle Paul got into that. I think the attitude toward homosexuality in Islam comes from the Hadith or the Sunna but I suspect it was adopted from the Old Testament.

brentan comments on Apr 3, 2019:
The poet William Blake is being recognised more in recent times for his description of God, not as a product of imagination, but imagination itself. While we have a brain that allows for both analysis and imagination, analysis seems to be looked on as the more valid of the two aspects. It is vital that we can project alternative scenarios (and 'die' in the unsuccessful scenarios instead of in real life, as Jordan Peterson puts it), analyse them and choose the best option, but the human mind is also intiuitive and holistic and this side is sadly very underrated these days.
