Thought I would share my sign on my door. It has cut down on door knockers 100% ?

Do you make a conscious effort to be happy and the best person you can be - or do you just go about ...
brentan comments on Feb 23, 2019:
I think I've decided what makes me happy and every day is pretty much the same but quite pleasant. I could only suggest to people to find what they love and develop it. For me, it's most literature. For others, maybe sports, travel, helping others etc. There are a huge amount of people who cannot even aspire to loving anything because of their disadvantaged upbringing and I feel sure the only thing they can do to try to make life bearable is take drugs.
A toast!!!

Who is Socialist?
brentan comments on Feb 23, 2019:
The point, I think, is that no-one in the public eye in politics is suggesting socialism. Some promote social democracy, which is based on capitalism and wants to extend pre-existing social systems in America to close the immense gap between the haves and have-nots. Labelling these politicians as socialist is dishonest.

brentan comments on Feb 23, 2019:
I hardly use the site. The negative comments in my religious groups on FB have become very repetitive. I'm staying because so many of my apps are linked to FB and I'm too lazy to break the links and make new IDs and passwords.

brentan comments on Feb 23, 2019:
I've read a theory that consciousness is out there, external to the brain which works like a TV transmitter to conduct consciousness into our bodies. This would mean that when the brain is damaged, it struggles as a transmitter to function but consciousness is still intact, just not getting through. Then when we die, consciousness continues, not needing a transmitter anymore.

brentan comments on Feb 22, 2019:
Capitalism is great for promoting ingenuity and high standards but the inequality between the haves and the have-nots is far too wide. Social democracy has no issues with capitalism but tries to lessen the inequality between the two.

Ian Dury and the Blockheads. - Sex and Drugs and Rock n Roll. Live on TOTP 1977. [youtu.be]
brentan comments on Feb 22, 2019:
A talented man. I saw the Blockheads at a venue called the Stardust in Dublin where dozens of people were burned to death just a few years later. They played very well but my lingering memory was the aggression that came from the stage and permeated the air. Perhaps it was part of their persona; I just don't know.
So, it's Friday... what's up in your world?

Why blame the voodoo medicine man in Africa?
brentan comments on Feb 22, 2019:
He preaches the Prosperity Gospel. I think that's a really perverted twist on scripture.

Two great people. Stephen is well-known so enough said. Gay Byrne is local Irish talent but he almost single-handedly brought Ireland into the 20th century at a time when we were dominated by the Catholic Church. He did it through a weekly TV show called The Late Late Show.

brentan comments on Feb 22, 2019:
I'm not familiar enough with British politics to make a comment on the man. I just want to ask who are these Jewish people that the Labour are accused of hating? Do you they exist only in the corridors of power in the party itself and perhaps the aristocracy and big industry? Could it possibly be the old general hatred for Jews? I want to say too that I was appalled at Corbyn's refusal to contribute anything in Britain's time of need and just sit back and wait for the Conservative party to fail. And while he was doing that, he was lying to his own party about his attitude towards the E.U. I'll bet he's not feeling so darn clever now.

Why did an ancient Egyptian king erase all gods but Aten? | Aeon Essays
brentan comments on Feb 21, 2019:
I dunno. I thought it sounded reasonable to understand the situation of Hebrews and Egyptians living together in Egypt as the basis for some shared history. The commonalities, Moses being ethnically Hebrew and culturally Egyptian, the one true god, circumcision and the significance of the colour blue might indicate one came for the other.The last two, I accept, might have been shared across a huge number of cultures.The Hebrew exodus might have been the flight from Egypt (but not necessarily as the Bible writers tell it) after the priests rebelled in Egypt and went back to their old gods.

A sense of awe is very beneficial for our health and happiness according to a recent study. ...
brentan comments on Feb 21, 2019:
I remember a time when Americans expressed awe almost to the point of cliché. I can understand it after my first view of Snoqualmie Falls and the Columbian dam. You don’t hear so many positive expressions anymore as the country struggles with a new kind of civil war. My sense of awe comes from the arts these days – the perceptions of ‘inspired’ writers, musicians and other artists. But what about the benefits of feeling small in the face of the universe? And would the converse mean that the search for individuality and fame is a bad thing?
