Speaking of biased news reporting, this just in from CNN:
brentan comments on Feb 19, 2019:
Don't worry. The moon landing was a fabrication.
Too many facts this morning

Oh gosh, that was funny!

brentan comments on Feb 19, 2019:
I think I'll be a hippy today.
It's the truth we all know it
brentan comments on Feb 19, 2019:
John Milton explains how angels bodily functions work. I'm sure it's the same for women. So down they sat, And to their viands fell, nor seemingly The Angel, nor in mist, the common gloss Of Theologians, but with keen dispatch Of real hunger, and concoctive heat To transubstantiate; what redounds, transpires Through Spirits with ease; nor wonder; if by fire Of sooty coal the Empiric Alchimist Can turn, or holds it possible to turn Metals of drossiest Ore to perfect gold As from the mine.
Creationists... utter bollocks.

It's a strange thing that corporate industry is now becoming the equivalent of religious leaders. Did you ever see the likes of the hand-ringing Tim Cook preaching the morals of our new virtual society. I thought I was listening to the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Oh FFS! Bernie just announced he's running again.
brentan comments on Feb 19, 2019:
Bernie will look like a ray of sanity unless the public feel social democracy is madness. Many will.
Ok. a gay man perhaps.

I guess we need to ask different questions when dealing with myth and allegory.
Sheela-na-gigs: The naked women adorning Britain's churches For hundreds of years carvings of ...
brentan comments on Feb 19, 2019:
'gee' pronounced with a hard 'g' was a very common word for vagina when I was young. If I remember right, the French equivalent was trou, which basically meant hole and was how female captives were categorised. While it's accepted that these are fertility symbols, it's really curious how they ended up on Christian buildings and give them a Gothic look. One explanation is artistic license, deviously taking a shot at the large imposition of churches and cathedrals.
It's very hard to believe in a God of love when the followers of that God, claiming to have the ...

brentan comments on Feb 18, 2019:
I think nature takes a scatter-gun approach to most things and they end up on a spectrum, with a bell-curve type of distribution. We never needed everyone to be reproducing for the human race to survive.

brentan comments on Feb 18, 2019:
I lived in Washington State for a few years. Lovely place. I suppose people thought you didn't have to deal with much of a change in weather. I've often thought of visiting Edinburgh to see the castle and maybe go to the comedy festival to see who's new. Anyway, welcome to the forum!
Butt... it helps.
brentan comments on Feb 18, 2019:
I always struggled with those insertable whatchamaycallems to deal with piles. I was very pleased last time I had the problem when I got a prescription for oral medicine. The tablets were very effective too.
I feel appreciated.

brentan comments on Feb 18, 2019:
I'm not so chirpy about these liberal churches. If you are a female member of the church, sure it matters and it is a good thing. But these churches muddy the waters on religion when they abandon the basic scriptural instructions not to murder. and to love others as themselves. I don't think it will help these churches to survive the liberal world. I think they'll implode under their own contradictions.

PragerFU: God and Suffering, Part II - misterdeity [youtube.com]
brentan comments on Feb 18, 2019:
This is how dictionary.com defines intersubjective. For some reason, it didn't recognise intersubjectivity: adjective Philosophy. comprehensible to, relating to, or used by a number of persons, as a concept or language. My guess is the definintions of good and bad things are intersubjective and that might be as close as we can get to objectivity.
This is correct.

It's sad to see such lame appeals to admin that remind me of extreme lefties always demanding that their feelings be recognised over any other concern.

brentan comments on Feb 18, 2019:
I wasn't able to pick yes or no. My emotions tell me they chose a certain path and now that this theocratic war has failed, they want to return to secular comfort. I'm very angry with them. They have children too which makes me think we should suffer the mothers on behalf of the children, I used to be a religious parent so I understand the predicament children of believers are in.
This might sound familiar to UK rock fans of a certain age :-) [youtu.be]

When you’re stupid
brentan comments on Feb 18, 2019:
I wonder. Even though I'm familiar with the Biblical idea that 'in the increase in knowledge there is an increase in pain', I think stupid people also pay a price for their condition.The idea was rammed home to me recently when a soap opera on TV was running and I was in no position to turn it off. I had experienced this neverending drama in real life and the 'actors' do pay a price for their participation.

England's Oldest Cave-Art Site Is Covered with Signs Ward off Evil Spirits [livescience.com]
brentan comments on Feb 18, 2019:
I wonder what spirits they might be. Theoretically, they are not the evil spirits of Christianity. They reside in the air. I think they are pre-Christian evil spirits. I'm biased toward Anglo-Saxon monsters because I've just read Beowulf. But the beliefs of the people don't fit neatly into historical divisions and these fears may well belong to people living well into the Christian era.

brentan comments on Feb 18, 2019:
Try to agree with people, especially people who have clout on the forum. This knowledge will come with time. If you are particularly open to instruction, you will get messages from the ones with clout to avoid people who have been designated as 'other'. Grow the strong relationships and avoid the fuckers they hate like the plague. You'll find it's very like real life. Before you know where you are, you'll be Level 8 and hosting groups to beat the band!

I liked it. Should I say it's interesting? No. That's useless. Your voice is very nice. Not great, nice. The guitar is pretty poor. I'm sure you know. The sentiment is what has some power. And it's very feminine, that fear of being second choice. I'm not sure how to work on the strengths and minimise the weaknesses in the music business but I always love to hear people express what it is to be human in their art.

Altar boys
brentan comments on Feb 17, 2019:
It was such a strange feeling to be sexually abused as a child. The initial response was bafflement. It took time to rationalise what happened. That wasn't easy in the 1960s and 70s when the whole society was in denial about it. I'm so pleased that it has all come into public knowledge. I can't imagine how many people lost their lives because they couldn't live with themselves as partakers of homosexual sex. Then there were the people whose quality of life was so bad that they were walking dead. I think the perpetrators had no idea that they were ruining lives when they did what they did. If they did, they must have had an outlook on life that was satanic.

OK. there are good rich people. Bill Gates might be an example.They give from their excess out of charity. I think they should be required to give from their profits as as a matter of social responsibility. When I say responsibility, I mean the responsibility to give to his employees the recompense they deserve. Then he could think of the public who financed his outrageous wealth. Not out of goodwill. Out of responsibility.

That was a fascinating interview, not so much for its content but for the way it exposed the way the status quo attempt to discredit intelligent argument.While Cathy Newman seems to be a lovely person in ordinary life, she adopts a persona in her professional life that leaves a lot to be desired.
