Super poem. I love the basic premise of problematic life and then taken in stages through slip, trip and fall. Very clever. But more than clever, heart-felt, beautifully worded and constructed.

brentan comments on Aug 10, 2018:
It was a witty comment. I'm also thinking "when in Rome" but maybe it's a bit much when someone's faith is involved. I think a ban should only be considered in time of martial law.

Is Rap Music? - YouTube
brentan comments on Aug 10, 2018:
I suppose it must be but it's not my cup o'tea. Anyway I'm old. I only have one rap album. It's by The Roots, called 'And Then You Shoot Your Cousin. It's experimental, moving from classic music to street to hiphop and back.

Identity politics has the wonderful combination of victimhood and lack of responsibility. Now white people can enjoy the childish attitude that black people have enjoyed for so long, avoiding responsibility and blaming the white man.

God but not man's religion?
brentan comments on Aug 8, 2018:
I feel there might be something out there too but it's not the patriarch with the beard anymore. It's more the Eastern cosmic consciousness.
If you look beyond Christian and anti-Christian polemic, you do not need to invoke religion to ...
brentan comments on Aug 8, 2018:
I guess he means you don’t need to talk about Satan or man’s fall from grace to explain cruelty. It’s just man’s nature to be cruel or kind, and cruel and kind depending on mood, circumstance etc. Then again, I suppose he might well have thought that man is God’s creation without believing in Satan or the fall but that’s a bit a la carte.

Where does consciousness come from?
brentan comments on Aug 8, 2018:
I think it is an inate feature of the cosmos that is accessed by the human brain and is the repository for every thought that came into the mind of man since time began. As our mind processes thoughts taken in from the cosmos, the processed thoughts go back out there for storage.

The significance of number 8 in numerology
brentan comments on Aug 8, 2018:
I know a few numbers from my Bible days. 7 is spiritual completeness 10 is human completeness 6 is a lack of completeness, evil Is 8 better than spiritual completeness? It probably can't be so maybe this meaning comes from a different source.
Why Are Many Americans Abandoning Religion? A Lot of the Credit Goes to Pastors – Friendly Atheist...
brentan comments on Aug 8, 2018:
I see their point and yet I can't help but argue that pastors were always behaving this way. So my question is why have we reached a tipping point now where the pastors are being challenged for what they say. I'm tempted to say it was the child abuse scandals but something tells me there is more to it than that.

Hello Heathens. Hope everyone has a great day today.
brentan comments on Aug 7, 2018:
Hello fellow heathen. I heard a guy say recently that heretics are people who don't hold to the whole body of doctrine in an orthodox belief - they have a pick and chose attitude to the mainstream religion. I don't know if that's technically correct but I never really knew what the word meant.

brentan comments on Aug 7, 2018:
The Bible captured the idea very well: So I set my mind to know wisdom and madness and folly; I learned that this, too, is a pursuit of the wind. For with much wisdom comes much sorrow, and as knowledge grows, grief increases – Ecclesiastes 1:17, 18. It might be essential for the sake of a functioning society that not everybody is highly intelligent, educated and perceptive.

Deconstructing Genesis-Part 3 – Molded By Reality
brentan comments on Aug 5, 2018:
It is a good thing to read and reflect on what scripture says. It might be better to read what others have to say about these matters and then add your conclusions to the mix. I don't try to understand scripture literally. It doesn't work well for me. If I look on the stories as moral fables, I can make sense of them. But that's me. I'll keep an eye on your writings to see what you come up with.

Could you master your mind? Or how well do you master your mind?
brentan comments on Aug 5, 2018:
If you saw the brain the way Iain McGilchrest sees it, the corpus callosum dividing the two hemispheres might make that physically and psychologically impossible. The gist of it is that the left hemisphere controls focus on specific items in a mental image. The right views the overall picture. The corpus callosum both inhibits and processes output from the two sides. For example, the corpus callosum won’t allow the left hemisphere to remove the focus of the left brain when it is working. It will, however, allow information received from the left brain enter the right brain to be added to its picture of the whole. Could it be possible to master the mind? Probably not if this means the left brain must master the right. The corpus callosum won’t allow that. https://brainworldmagazine.com/the-divided-brain-an-interview-with-dr-iain-mcgilchrist/ He also has very interesting lectures and discussions on YouTube.

Why We Hurt Each Other: Tolstoy’s Letters to Gandhi on Love, Violence, and the Truth of the Human ...
brentan comments on Aug 5, 2018:
This paragraph speaks as much for our time as Tolstoy's: *What is now happening to the people of the East as of the West is like what happens to every individual when he passes from childhood to adolescence and from youth to manhood. He loses what had hitherto guided his life and lives without direction, not having found a new standard suitable to his age, and so he invents all sorts of occupations, cares, distractions, and stupefactions to divert his attention from the misery and senselessness of his life. Such a condition may last a long time.* This is manifest in my own country, Ireland, which is starting to live in a post-religious era.
At least I'm considerate. Edit: this is a joke, people.
