brentan comments on Feb 6, 2019:
I think abrogation comes from 'from prayer'. If so, I can't help thinking it is prayers to get help with figuring things out that are already written. That would give a very similar meaning to progressive revelation because things are revealed that are in need of changing.

brentan comments on Feb 5, 2019:
The apostle Paul made the point about the civil law being for those who were inclined to break the law and had little to do with good people. We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers - I Timothy 1:9. Sadly, then, he goes on to have another bash at homosexuals. I'm including this Bible verse just to take the idea of the two types of people back a couple of millenia and also to say that these people living by another law that motivated instead of frightened were in a sense outside the civil law. I think we need a replacement for the religious motivator that early Christians had.

brentan comments on Feb 3, 2019:
Is terrorist the right word? Perhaps if their equivalents on the right are classified that way too. I would use the word criminal but maybe that doesn't describe ideological groups who commit crime. Maybe we could use terrorist because they want to frighten people with criminal violence. And yet the word terrorist seems to carry a more potent meaning in terms of death and violence.
Punny...
brentan comments on Feb 3, 2019:

brentan comments on Feb 3, 2019:
All I ever thought about the San Juan Islands was that they were inhabited by rich people. I know the drummer in Yes lives there anyway. I took the ferry from Seattle to Vancouver and back in the 90s. It was rudimentary but did the job. The view is beautiful if the weather is nice.

brentan comments on Feb 3, 2019:
I was surprised at how many of the comments seem to think kindness is counter-productive in this situation. Maybe it is and what makes it more confusing is the place social security takes as an alternative to kindness. I wonder in how many circumstances would personal kindness be counter-productive? Maybe all the circumstances social security covers?
Seeing the truth might just require a shift in perspective.

brentan comments on Feb 2, 2019:
I felt it as a huge loss. After all, it's the loss of everlasting life. I'm comforted a little by the new animist thinkers who feel consciousness is not dependent on the brain and continues after death. How that consciousness might fit into universal consciousness is still unknown, I think. I would like to read any speculations about it. I get a lot of my thoughts about this from Rupert Sheldrake.

brentan comments on Feb 2, 2019:
In my case, my parents, especially my mother, did so much to damage their children. I didn’t feel grief when they died. I might have if I had held out any hope of closure. I think I had a philosophical attitude when they died. Later in life, I had cause to look into autism and found it describing me very well. I think it’s because I’m more analytical while other people bring feelings into the situation more than I do. One of the things I see expressed more often on social media is the encouragement to be kind to yourself. I think it’s a great idea.

Then she went softly to him and drove the peg into his temple until it went down into the ground while he was lying fast asleep from weariness. So he died. - Judges 4.
