brentan comments on Feb 7, 2019:
I saw an example of the effort made to fully understand what a person of another opinion is saying. I know it's hardly complete empathy but it's a start in argument. It's called 'steelmanning' and it's an attempt to do the very opposite of strawmanning. Neither of you are allowed to continue the discussion without first relating back to the other person what they have said and get their approval. I saw it used to good effect when Douglas Murray asked Jordan Peterson and Sam Harris to do it in debate with each other.

7 key takeaways from the SOTU speech: 1. Immigration "Congress has 10 days left to pass a bill that will fund our government, protect our homeland and secure our very dangerous southern border." 2. 'Partisan' investigations "An economic miracle is taking place in the United States and the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, politics or ridiculous partisan investigations." 3. Trade "To build on our incredible economic success, one priority is paramount - reversing decades of calamitous trade policies." 4. Infrastructure "Both parties should be able to unite for a great rebuilding of America's crumbling infrastructure." 5. Healthcare "The next major priority for me, and for all of us, should be to lower the cost of healthcare and prescription drugs and to protect patients with pre-existing conditions." 6. Foreign Policy As we make progress in these negotiations (with Afghan groups), we will be able to reduce our troops' presence and focus on counter-terrorism and we will indeed focus on counter-terrorism. 7. Abortion "To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking the Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother's womb." What’s not to like? https://www.independent.ie/world-news/north-america/president-trump/seven-key-takeaways-from-trumps-state-of-the-union-address-37787593.html

brentan comments on Feb 6, 2019:
It's wishful thinking. Religion is about belief in god.
It's that constipated look that gives it away!
brentan comments on Feb 6, 2019:
That's an attitude I'm seriously trying to avoid even though it's very likely to be true.
Why are religious people so judgemental?

brentan comments on Feb 6, 2019:
They are happier because they have the benefits of a kind of tribal living. It is a huge support group that many secular people do not enjoy. Loneliness is a huge problem nowadays. The cost of such a life is total commitment to the beliefs and modus operandi of the faith.

From the film "La Bamba," Lou Diamond Phillips as the great Richie Valens (1941-1959) [youtu.be]
brentan comments on Feb 6, 2019:
'Para bailar La Bamba Se necessita una poca de gracia' 'To dance The Bamba All that's needed is .......'. I think this is the best explanation of gracia in the context. Habilidad natural para hacer bien ciertas cosas. A natural ability to do certain things. The best I can come up with in English is flair or proclivity. It's just as well the song is in Spanish.

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.
