Shockingly, being gay is a criminal act in 74 countries In a dozen countries, the punishment is ...
brentan comments on Feb 20, 2019:
My guess is that the underlying reason for the prohibition in Abrahamic religions was cleanliness. There wasn't much back then that wouldn't make a person ritually unclean. All body functions seemed to require ritual cleansing, sometimes sacrifice. But that wouldn't explain the decision to take the lives of homosexual people. I think there's another layer to this that is less obvious and that is the preoccupation back then that there was a relationship between objects that was spiritual in nature as well as physical. It showed itself in rules such as not mixing certain fabrics. Then there's the command not to allow a kid goat to be boiled in its mother's milk because milk was for nurturing, not killing. We don't relate to these ideas anymore as general concepts but nonetheless I still think the revulsion about male homosexual sex because it involves poop is always the elephant in the room when homosexuality is discussed. Curiously, nothing is said in the Hebrew scriptures about lesbian sex and that might be because the ritual uncleanness wasn't so obvious.
Believers need to take note.
brentan comments on Feb 20, 2019:
I can't believe how many years it took me to realise that history is proof that there is nobody heavenly interfering with human affairs. I really hope we wise up in time but but things look very bad at the moment.

The Band The night they drove old Dixie down, Live ,[youtube.com]
brentan comments on Feb 20, 2019:
Great song from a great band. Who would thought a song sympathetic to the South would resonate with so many people. I guess it's because it's written from the perspective of a man ending up on the losing side 'while the bells are ringing' for his defeat. There's something essentially tragic in that situation that we can all feel.

I really wish singers would stick to music. In their cases, I use the word music lightly. But even skilled musicians like James Taylor get involved in politics and I really wish they wouldn't.

She's a terrific singer but lots of us down here lost interest in her when she dumped her husband as soon as she got famous. She has struggled to get back ever since. I think she should go back to rockabilly.

The JW explanation is that Satan called into question God's right to rule over his creation. We need to hang in there and keep worshipping him until he proves to the whole creation that he is right and we can't do without him. Our suffering, like Job's, is just collateral damage.

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.

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.

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.

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.
