I came across the word "soul" in a book I'm reading and wondered if the word (aside from relating to...
brentan comments on Jul 15, 2019:
It was nephesh in Hebrew and meant the whole person. The Greek pneuma had the idea of immortality. I think you still have the Greek soul to live on after you unless you, like the Hebrews and many non-religious, think the mind dies when the brain dies. I'm hopeful the soul does live on but I'm in a minority.
Hi. Looking for exjws on here
brentan comments on Jul 15, 2019:
I'm an ex-JW. I live in Ireland and I'm in my 60s but I talk about Watchtower stuff online whenever the topic comes up.
I'm a U2 fan but somehow never saw this powerful version of one of their songs.
brentan comments on Jul 15, 2019:
That's very well performed. The 'seven towers where she sees no way out' are probably Ballymun Towers, Dublin. It was like the projects in America with all the attendant problems. Bono lived very close to them.
Old Dan's Records Gordon Lightfoot.
brentan comments on Jul 15, 2019:
I don't think Gordon ever played in Ireland. He's a wonderful talent. My favourite is Canadian Railroad Trilogy.
Wilde at heart.
brentan comments on Jul 15, 2019:
I think we could make it a paradise too if we put our minds to it but it seems more natural to be negative.
Truth! 🤣🤣🤣
brentan comments on Jul 15, 2019:
That's very witty!

brentan comments on Jul 14, 2019:
I wish. My lack of luck is down to me.

brentan comments on Jul 14, 2019:
It's indispensable if you want to aim. But do you want the bother?

That was brave, Tim. We would never have said it.

Psalm 137:9 (NRSV) - Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.

I must google to see has anyone ever attempted to justify that one.

Isn't all this because she got on the Brexit bus? I believe some day we will know some day what, between nature and nurture, causes all these things..
There are basically two types of agnosticism: the first one takes place and participates in the ...
brentan comments on Jul 13, 2019:
I was a Jehovah's Witness and got involved in the ex-JW community online for some time. Many have made it their vocation to try to bring down the Watchtower organisation and challenge JWs online. Some, like myself, don't want to give the organisation any more of my time. So I can relate to what's described here as the 'lazy' approach.
How to save money.

My wife's American aunt would always say about pictures like that: "That's darling!"
After crying myself to sleep, the last thing I really wanna do is get out of bed and go to work.

I'll bet! Let us know how things went.

Now listen! This has got to stop!
mystery solved
brentan comments on Jul 13, 2019:
This thing about giving more to those who have is being called the 'Matthew Principle' online. Those who haven't, of course, get less. It's our culture's morality, I guess.
But can he play?
brentan comments on Jul 13, 2019:
He can probably slash to beat the band.
Hey guys, I just cured a narcasist.
brentan comments on Jul 13, 2019:
My mum was not capable of showing much emotion. In her case, it wasn't narcissism. She was raised by a mum who spent all the time my mum was growing up in a wheelchair. So she was wrapped in her own problems and had little to give my mum. My mum's sisters were all much older than her and also gave very little. So that lack was passed on to us. I'm only bringing this up in case it might be relevant and some help.
I experienced profound sadness last night.
brentan comments on Jul 13, 2019:
Yes, it's not fair. Times like that it's not just words.

Has anyone read this book?
brentan comments on Jul 12, 2019:
It's looks very interesting and goodness knows we need a replacement for religious spirituality. I'm not optimistic at the moment. I fear that, like secular humanism, secular spirituality is only being taken up by a minority of intellectuals. He's probably preaching to the converted.

WRS | News | Prisoners go in strike to demand 'sex room'
brentan comments on Jul 12, 2019:
I wonder if they really have an actual moral/human right to have sex when in prison. Is it something to do with the pursuit of happiness? Does that apply?
Acosta has resigned. Drip, drip, drip. Happy Friday, heathens!!!
brentan comments on Jul 12, 2019:
Hooray! Next....
Karma.
brentan comments on Jul 12, 2019:
I'm not one bit confident that karma does it's job well. And I've lost the idea that wicked people will get their comeuppance in the next world. So I'm glad there's at least an effort by the justice system to put things right.
I actually LIKE laundry and ironing. I should hire out for the ironing.
brentan comments on Jul 12, 2019:
Doing the laundry is easy for me (there's just me) but I never do ironing.
My ex keeps telling me I'm shallow because I will only date women who are small.

Me too.
[jta.
brentan comments on Jul 11, 2019:
I think it is a case of monopolising suffering. Like the black monopolisation of slavery, this is a monopolisation of the concentration camp. I don’t think using the camps works in this situation because nobody would dare claim Trump intends to murder all the inmates. Of course it is dreadful, as was the incarceration of British troops in the Far East under the Japanese and the Japanese concentrated in camps in America during WW2. As for who has a legitimate claim to say how the Holocaust narrative should be used, I would imagine that ‘where you have two Jews, you will always have three opinions’ will always hold true.

brentan comments on Jul 11, 2019:
Am I right that Baptist would be a bit boring, Catholicism a piece of theatre that you watch, and Pentecostal a theatre where you can be an actor?
