I love science.
brentan comments on May 9, 2019:
There was an idea that science was knowledge. We were happy that it explained so much even though it had limits. In competition with religion, the ideological divide placed the two not just at complete odds with each other but curiously both now became mutually exclusive icons of truth.
How Jonathan Sacks dumbs-down Jewish history to defend Zionism | Robert A. H. Cohen
brentan comments on May 9, 2019:
This part really reaches the height of hypocrisy: *Read the Hebrew Bible and you’ll see immediately that it isn’t about the salvation of the soul. It’s about creating in the holy land a society based on the biblical ideas of justice, welfare, the sanctity of life – and caring for the stranger “because you know what it feels like to be a stranger.”* I'll bet they know what the Jehovah of the Bible would think of that. But then, they know after their experiences in WW2 that there is no Jehovah. So they play the Bible for all it's worth and live by the realpolitik of the Nazis.

Is it possible to be an atheist and a Buddhist ?
brentan comments on May 8, 2019:
I think it is very possible. I think the issue is about the relationship between spirituality and religion. They are not mutually exclusive. While religion often expresses itself in ways devoid of spirituality, spirituality doesn't need religion to express itself.
From Friedrich Nietzsche's book, Thus Spoke Zarathustra: .
brentan comments on May 8, 2019:
It seems Zarathustra is a god of life and Bacchus is like him in enjoying life to the full. I'm not familiar with Zarathustra at all. Is this just a way of saying you need to appreciate the pleasures of life first so that you fully know what you are rejecting with your pessimism?

Perhaps atheists need religion to exist to justify their position.
brentan comments on May 5, 2019:
I think the Western world had to go through religion to get to atheism. Derrida wanted to tear down the old to bring in the new. I don't think he was in a position to fully understand what he was promoting. We can see it better now with cultural Marxism attempting to do all the things he wrote about. I don't know if atheism needs to justify its stance by the evil acts of religion over the centuries. Perhaps the good aspects of religion over the centuries would work against that justification.
So what do you say to people who don't believe that 6 million Jews died in the Holocaust?
brentan comments on May 5, 2019:
I give some credence to the people who argue against the mass-gassing of Jewish people based on their claim that there is no evidence of the necessaries for this method to be found in the concentration camps. I don't doubt that there was a Holocaust but the numbers may have been inflated. My main source is an Irish journalist that I respect, Kevin Myers, who wrote an article about it years ago.

This fits well with the theory that massive warming around 12000 BC created a flood that destroyed earlier civilisations. Graham Hancock, among others, has made YT videos about it.

brentan comments on May 5, 2019:
He is described differently because he is much older. How much older depends on whether you believe the last day came 40 years after the Gospels or hasn't come yet.

Do you drink tea?
brentan comments on May 4, 2019:
I drink tea. They tell me it contains fluoride so I shouldn't. Or perhaps drink white tea but I don't know it or what it tastes like.
Religious fundamentalists and many of today’s atheists share the same approach to texts.
brentan comments on May 4, 2019:
We have words and a huge amount of study on those words. We have context which is a huge field of study too. What's left to employ to properly understand these texts? I think historical and cultural knowledge but that's probably part of the contextual understanding. I think most important thing is the intent. The best lectures I've seen on this subject as Yale University's Bible studies with Christine Hayes and Dale Martin.

Jesus Christ in his Own Words
brentan comments on May 3, 2019:
I've spent a lot of time with that book and I'm convinced these words attributed to Jesus are to be understood in the context of the last days, that is, the generation living at his time that would not be completely gone before his return to bring in the new world. In other words, about 40 years. This, if true, makes sense of the idea to 'let the dead bury the dead' because of the shortness of the time remaining. Time was precious and there were very few to bring in the harvest.
Maybe it should be called the violent book...
brentan comments on May 3, 2019:
To be fair to it, if there were no concept of a need for salvation, there would have been no perceived need for the book.

Morality is not contingent on knowing right from wrong.
brentan comments on May 3, 2019:
Traditional morality is hard to live up to. The teaching in the gospels made it even harder, commanding us not to even have sin in our hearts. Thankfully, the law is more reasonable and doesn't get into thought crimes. You're very hard on yourself, I think. Life is hard enough without us getting in on the act too.
Here's an idea for potlucks, block parties, work get togethers.

brentan comments on May 2, 2019:
I didn't really choose a road less travelled, I just couldn't travel the one presented to me. I spent my whole life trying to figure it out and finally concluded I'm somewhat autistic. I paid a high price for choosing an alternative road, as anyone will who does it, but I honestly think I could never have coped with what I think of as the tragedy of regular life. One other thing needs saying, though. If I had understood myself early in life, I would never have married and had children. I think a wife needs a regular man and children need a traditional upbringing to sustain them through life.

brentan comments on May 2, 2019:
I think America is moving slowly in the right direction, in the sense that people at one time really did believe that America was in every way a force for good in the world. Now a lot of us are knowledgeable enough to read between the lines, watch for patterns and such. I don't think there ever was a time before when Americans were so 'woke' to what their government is doing. And yes, the hypocrisy with Israel is sickening.
