I love the part where Phineas puts his spear though the couple's genitals as they're having sex. Now that's righteous indignation! (Numbers 25:7,8 Douay Rheims Bible)

You have to watch those people. You could be pitying them while they're trying to ruin what you have.
I dreamed I got hit by a train and it woke me up. So, basically I got knocked conscious.

It's time for the talking to stop and a move to action. We need a class action suit. But how can we be compensated for such a serious loss? We would have to try it in a state that still used capital punishment and that might not be allowed..

And can't we all use a good hug today! ???
brentan comments on Dec 5, 2018:
Here's a strange thing. I got an apology from someone who had been harassing me in discussion, in the real world, not here on the forum. I thanked her for the apology and was pleased she made it. Later on, for some reason I don't quite understand, I felt weakened and was annoyed about it. I don't think I was happy to have my emotion awakened. Perhaps a hug might do the same to some of us. I just wanted to share my feelings. I'm not arguing against hugs in principle.

“No he is not an Irishman.
brentan comments on Dec 5, 2018:
I always thought Wellington had said that about himself to deny his Irishness out of a sense of superiority. Now I wonder did O'Connell say it to deny Wellington's Irishness for political reasons.

Even though I'm no stranger to mental problems, I'm no expert and pretty tactless so I just want to say I empathise with your situation and hope you make sure to keep taking your medication. There is another post today about what to do on days we feel lousy. One of them that really resonated with me was taking a shower because I always feel better after one, even though it just seems like an awful lot of effort. There are nine other things to try in that post. Be strong!

Shakespeare places Ireland at the arse-end of the world in The Comedy Of Errors. Dromio describes the huge body of his girlfriend and how he could find whole countries on her: DROMIO OF SYRACUSE No longer from head to foot than from hip to hip. She is spherical, like a globe. I could find out countries in her. ANTIPHOLUS OF SYRACUSE In what part of her body stands Ireland? DROMIO OF SYRACUSE Marry, sir, in her buttocks. I found it out by the bogs.

I think it's a great idea. l'm not back long from a holiday in Spain where I met a young English couple teaching there. They enjoy their lifestyle very much.
A look slightly askew of musical offerings at this time of year.
brentan comments on Dec 4, 2018:
The time has probably come for the independent writing of songs, or perhaps art of any kind, to be replaced by people trained in the proper expression of values. It should be noted too that most of the popular Christmas songs were written by Jewish men. That probably explains why so many of us experience a cognitive dissonance between the music and the lyrics of these songs. Perhaps a return to the old business model of Tin Pan Alley, where writing was housed in a cluster of buildings that regulated its own corporate culture, might be used where a government agency might be adjoined to the building and used as a control/feedback station before unhealthy ideas are released to the public.

Yes indeed - we forget the nice things real fast and hold on to the bad. I think the reason is evolutionary, so that we remember it and try to make sure it doesn't happen again.

brentan comments on Dec 3, 2018:
Add an egg or two, white and black pudding, sausages (unflavoured), maybe mushrooms and beans but most importantly, bread and butter. The butter enhances the taste of the fried food. And a cup of tea enhances the taste of the whole meal. Do not repeat every day.

Can you imagine laying your butt down on that toilet seat and thinking about someone else's butt being there before you and oh lord, in a weird kind of way your butt is sitting on top of where their butt was and oh holy Jesus who says the thought is the same as the deed....... I'm damned.
What difference? None.
brentan comments on Dec 3, 2018:
Well, one group is God's chosen people. I still have a feeling, though, that the atrocities in Palestine are due to a feeling that God has left them to take care of their own survival rather than they are entitled to commit atrocities because God wants them to live on that land.
We are zombies..
brentan comments on Dec 3, 2018:
That reminds me of the attitude of my religion to people outside it. They were 'spiritually dead'. I remember one guy welcomed back to his congregation with a sarcastic 'Oh look, Ian, you're back from the dead'. I usually think of that when I'm watching The Walking Dead.

The gentle cynic
brentan comments on Dec 3, 2018:
I don't know what to make of that. I care whether there's a god or not. I think it matters. He must be thinking along the lines of 'the opposite is love isn't hate, it's indifference'.
The man who was suing to have his age changed has lost his lawsuit: [rechtspraak.nl]
brentan comments on Dec 3, 2018:
I doubt this was a serious suit. I think he wanted to highlight the transgender issue and all the notions of socially constructed identities. I am keen to read the judge's reasons for rejecting his case.
Just read an article about Christmas songs that should be banned.

Good conversation: Jordan Peterson, Ben Shapiro, Eric Weinstein, and Dave Rubin [youtube.com]

Maybe Moses, historically true or not, does have a place in social studies. I've read that the ancient nation of Israel was the template for the English nation, the principles and structures of which were transferred across the sea to America.
Any atheists here have that almost debilitating fear of death?

'Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head' - Matthew 8:20 https://www.gotquestions.org/nowhere-to-lay-His-head.html They should give it all away. They completely misunderstand the message.

brentan comments on Dec 1, 2018:

Hate speech
brentan comments on Dec 1, 2018:
I doubt it. The ones doing the indoctrination often believe their own nonsense. The ones who know they are living from lies are conmen. What about these religious leaders who decry homosexuality? Is that hate speech? I don't think so. We all think some ways of life are less than ideal.

There are two places they see God: 1.in the wonder of the universe 2.in their hearts Scientists are gradually explaining the first one. The Bible itself warns about the heart: “The heart is more treacherous than anything else and is desperate. Who can know it' - Jeremiah 17:9.

I loved Sponge Bob's endless optimism and Patrick's ridiculous stupidity. A friend of mine, when we were both Jehovah's Witnesses, told me Sponge Bob and Patrick were not good entertainment for children because there was a homosexual substrate to their conversations. Has anyone ever noticed this in the shows?
What if an advanced civilization existed before us [youtu.be]
brentan comments on Nov 28, 2018:
I'm intrigued by Granham Hancock's theory that there was a civilisation wiped out by flood around 12,000 B.C. These might be the ones called 'divine beings' and 'the men of renown' in the Bible: The Nephilim were on the earth at that time (and also immediately afterward), when those divine beings were having sexual relations with those human women, who gave birth to children for them. These children became the heroes and legendary figures of ancient times.
