brentan comments on Jun 14, 2019:
That reminds me of the poem where it says 'God grant me the courage to change the things I can change and accept the things I can't'. I guess there's a fear mindfulness is about accepting everything no matter whether we can change it or not.

Bouncers are not the most imaginative people. They can't follow us into the worlds we create to experience our true nature. Especially if we display our privates in public. They truly are the guardians of the matrix.
Experience is that marvelous thing that enables us to recognize a mistake once we make it again.

That would be awful if experience was no more than recognising patterns.

WHO NEEDS GOD?
brentan comments on Jun 14, 2019:
I think rich people see God as the spiritual dimension of Maslow's self-actualisation. I'm told it came in with Protestantism and is now most obvious in the prosperity gospel. They must mean he brought it into relatively recent Western thinking because there must have been people like that since forever.
Once upon a long, long, long, I mean really long, long time ago, well.

brentan comments on Jun 14, 2019:
It sounds good to me. It sure is nice to receive blessings (for want of a better word), especially when we are in need but the very best thing would be to be able to generate our own.

Do you think having a best friend is important?

I can't remember ever having a friend I could trust. I'm sure it must be a great thing psychologically so I hope it actually is a thing.
brentan comments on Jun 14, 2019:
The cake makers have a conscience issue with dealing with homosexuality as if it were OK in their eyes. I think some gay people who have the chance to order from a baker who has no problem with it would rather try to force a Christian baker to go against their beliefs. This attitude is counter-productive for gay liberation because people can see the victims have now become the bullies.

As an agnostic I feel bad about telling religious types that there is no God, seeing their reaction,...
brentan comments on Jun 12, 2019:
I wouldn't tell people there is no god. I just think there is no evidence. We could be wrong. A lot of people believe the universe itself is evidence of a god on the basis of the apostle Paul's verse about 'every house is built by someone', so they say this universe must have had a creator. I have a feeling that if and when we get to know the reality of our universe, we will look on past beliefs, both agnostic and religious, as very childish.

Islamophobia Refuted:: [youtube.com]
brentan comments on Jun 11, 2019:
I despair for the language. It's being turned inside out. Phobia of Islam means fear of Islam. The fear is that they will become a victim of Islam. Now the meaning of the word is changed to hate of Islam and the Muslims are the supposed victims. I think the Greek word for hate is something like 'apexthia' and it doesn't seem too much to ask that hatred of Islam be called Islamapexthia. I think the Muslims got the idea of twisting the concept of fear into hatred from the Jews but I'm not sure.

It's a mad idea that just might keep us sane.
As individuals, we store very little detailed information about the world in our heads.
brentan comments on Jun 11, 2019:
This is interesting. I would like to know where this idea came from. I would go further by saying that the collective mind is not even located in human brains but out there in the 'ether'. Rupert Sheldrake teaches that the individual's mind resides in morphic fields located on the super-natural plane. That would make collective consciousness the amalgamation of those fields. This is not to take away the processing power of the mind which he says draws our thoughts into the brain to real-ise them, something like a computer operating system drawing data into RAM to be worked on and then returned in its modified form to the morphic field. This harmonises in one way (processing) with Iain McGilchrist's teaching of how the left brain analyses data from the right brain, modifies the content and (ideally) returns the new data to the right brain.
Nothing...
brentan comments on Jun 11, 2019:
I love Tolle. He really can help people find peace, I think. I'm never sure about these generalisations, though, knowing many people are so damaged they can never be their old selves again. To be fair, he might not mean being cured at all and is just talking about being present as you are now.
What are YOUR doomsday fears??
brentan comments on Jun 11, 2019:
That was an interesting way of putting it: 'The limbic system of the brain versus the frontal cortex'. Curiously, I've heard several good thinkers claim that the frontal cortex is the problem rather than the solution.

Sorry for not being a funny meme. It is a good thought.
brentan comments on Jun 10, 2019:
I'm guessing that the morality condemning abortion came in early times from the importance of the survival of the group. So we'd call it a social responsibility these days if the survival of society was at stake. It isn't, of course, except in economic terms where not enough taxpayers are being created to pay for the needs of the elderly, social welfare and other public expenses. The problem in Europe is being solved by bringing in people delighted to work in more prosperous countries and still have the custom of raising large families. Everyone's a winner except perhaps those who never got to experience life.

At what point, if any, does a human being quit having the right to live?
brentan comments on Jun 9, 2019:
There's probably a difference between moral and legal in this respect. I can easily relate to the legal side of it on terms of 'a life is worth a life' but the moral side is probably more complicated. I understand that there was no difference in the Mosaic law but that changed very quickly to accept less 'equal' punishments for murder. Was this morality over law? It might be no coincidence that at the same time the Bible was being written, the Greeks were also modifying their tit-for-tit approach to murder by placing the law into the hands of the state instead of the murdered person's relatives. The result was the same: the number of deaths went down. Are these signs that the right to live often trumped basic justice?
Be nice to people? I don't understand.

Do Muslims Have Physical Rituals Like Catholics?
brentan comments on Jun 9, 2019:
Outward show is important. We would be publicly reprimanded if we didn't do the sign of the cross passing the church when I was a boy. In the 7th century, Muslims really needed to know who was on their side. Not much as changed as secularists today are all expected to make the same noises in public. The zealots demand it and the sheep obey.

brentan comments on Jun 9, 2019:
I was thinking about how religion can make blanket judgments but the followers don't necessarily go along with the letter of the law and bring their personal opinions to bear on these issues. Moderates are good people, I think, but bad followers.

brentan comments on Jun 9, 2019:
That sounds right to me. I think men and women are not equal and nature is not necessarily good. I wonder what evolutionary psychology proposes as the right way of thinking about morality and nature. That's probably still in the development stage.
