Mysterious explosion- perhaps anti-matter- blows dancers from stage in mini-Tunguska event! ??
brentan comments on Feb 11, 2019:
It's probably God's spirit doing away with gays.
A man is but a product of his thoughts. What he thinks he becomes.....Mahatma Gandhi.
brentan comments on Feb 11, 2019:
I feel there's a danger that it is often miscontrued and becomes intellectual snobbery. I've read recently another way of putting it: 'what the brain attends to'. I've lived in enough severely deprived areas to have seen what the choices are that people can turn their attention to and it is heartbreaking. I'm convinced that the paucity of worthwhile things to attend to is at the root of the drugs epidemic.
Reality check for modern music producers
brentan comments on Feb 11, 2019:
I'm sure she's right and I think it's true of all businesses these days. The trouble is that nobody knows the damage that is done to people in the ordinary business world or what a world without art might look like.

brentan comments on Feb 10, 2019:
I've been watching YouTubes videos about quantum mechanics recently. Even if it's a scientific fact and even if we understood it completely, a sense of awe would compensate for the loss of mystery.

I've been told by friends that I'm the most militant atheist they know. All the while I'm thinking, ...
brentan comments on Feb 9, 2019:
I think I'm the most pacifist atheist, agnostic really. I got a lot from religion and I appreciate what religion was trying to achieve. So I've moved on without the bitterness a lot of people (justifiably) feel. I think the self-righteous type still get on my nerves but that's not entirely limited to the religious. Especially nowadays with the attitude of extreme lefties dictating what's true like old-time Puritans.
IT's Carole King's birthday! Posting a full album, as She and it are so meaningful. Tapestry. ...
brentan comments on Feb 9, 2019:
Wonderful album. She comes across as a lovely woman. When ever I listen to the album, I feel emotionally wiped after. Maybe that's because I'm a man.
"Man is the only animal that blushes, or needs to." -Mark Twain

And maybe a wine fridge?
brentan comments on Feb 8, 2019:
Oh gosh, the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. I just can't handle alcohol like I used to.
I often wonder how priests guilty of sexual molestation perceive themselves. I wonder if they ...
brentan comments on Feb 8, 2019:
I think they see their situation like ancient Egyptians entering into the court of Maat who weighed their good deeds against their bad ones. Christian doctrine doesn't allow for that, because salvation is by faith, not be works,

brentan comments on Feb 8, 2019:
It could be the greatest load of bollocks in both countries. I've more empathy with Britain trying to keep the country British than America trying to keep the country WASP.

Would you say that, given your knowledge, etc, of the Goat-herder's Guide to the Galaxy ( Bible) and...
brentan comments on Feb 8, 2019:
In all fairness, goat-herders did not write the Old Testament scriptures. The scriptures were conceived and written by educated, pious people who wanted to project meaning into their lives at a time when they were living in exile around the 6th century BCE.
Endless war . . .
brentan comments on Feb 8, 2019:
It's unreal how bad homelessness has become in first-world countries. I can only guess it's down to a widening gap between the upper and lower income groups.
Nina Simone- I wish I knew how it feels to be free (live 1976) [youtube.com]
brentan comments on Feb 8, 2019:
That's Nina who was so angry at the white race that she would insult the white portion of her audience at concerts. I think people understood and stayed to listen to her talent anyway.

brentan comments on Feb 8, 2019:
I really enjoyed the sentiment in that song. Emily came across very strait-laced for someone whose family life was full of 'complications' as anyone else's. Here's another song about her written by Duke Special from a poem by Michael Longley: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pCztMBruLRY

Why is the hard-Left so conservative? - UnHerd
brentan comments on Feb 8, 2019:
It might be because they've taken on the mantle of righteousness that used to belong to conservatives.
No idea whether Einstein actually said this, but interesting nonetheless

I think the whole world should have a Global Kindness Day. It might be so surprisingly pleasant that new days could be added gradually.
What do you choose?
brentan comments on Feb 8, 2019:
I think seeking happiness directly is counter-productive, like desperately trying to go to sleep. Maybe we should choose to do things that make us happy as a result of those things. I'm not sure about getting happiness through thinking good things but it might work like meditation.

brentan comments on Feb 7, 2019:
She'll be lambasted for this but it's just a suggestion and I think the world, not just America, needs to come up with something. Many Americans will likely think of it as a communist plot, like universal health care.
