What are your views on abortion??
brentan comments on Jul 16, 2018:
Would it work if women have complete control over their bodies and men have to make sure the woman they are having sex with have the same objectives about possible reproduction? Does that make sense? If a man wants children, he better know what his partner wants.
DO ATHEISTS AND HUMANISTS HAVE SACRED VALUES? After I read the following lines written by Daniel ...
brentan comments on Jul 16, 2018:
So it seems Dennett means sacred as unchangeable. I would mean it as holy. I suppose it would mean both for a Christian. I'm an agnostic raised with the Judeo-Christian culture. It was inculcated in me as a Christian who took the Bible seriously. So my values have changed. One thing that has changed for sure is the 'value' of stoning adulterers and homosexuals, although to be fair Christians have moved on from that too in the sense that they leave the judgement to God, who scripture says will not treat them kindly in the end. Here are what I would suggest are Christian values, called fruits in Galatians 5: 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. The obvious thing about these values is that they are very human values too but I won't go into why the apostle Paul thinks they come from God's spirit. I couldn't tell half the time whether my impulse to follow these values is from my culture or from secular motivation.

Good morning you good people. I am about to go forth and kick Monday's ass. Who's with me?
brentan comments on Jul 16, 2018:
I admire your confidence. Monday would always frighten and depress me. Coffee was the only weapon I had in my arsenal so I was under-equipped. I'm told that eating a protein-rich breakfast is a must to get you through the day. But confidence might be the very best thing!

brentan comments on Jul 16, 2018:
I loved Little House on the Prairie and The Waltons. These 'holy' shows are a little bit like ordinary TV stories where the bad guys lose out and the good guys win - all in the space of an hour! We all know that the law doesn't always win and good guys certainly didn't always win out on the prairie but it's nice to pretend for a bit. But what about American Gods? Wow, that was a whole different proposition! And what is an atheist to make of the deification of the things we worship in modern society - sex, money, power? Semantics, or could there be more to it than that? I wonder what Neil Gaiman thought!

Well, now you have a solid theory. You've added empirical evidence to support your view and we can all start folding instead of waiting. But folding is a drag, almost as bad as ironing. I'm just going to wear crumply casual clothes.

brentan comments on Jul 16, 2018:
In Ireland at the moment, we still have the usual feral gangs of Irish teenagers who may have some of the immigrant youth with them. The U.K. deals with immigrant gangs that have more insidious objectives than just mindless violence. The British media does its damnest to silence anyone bringing this out into the open. Our media, of course, plays down our immigrant problems too. So each situation needs to be judged independently. The problem is finding media that tells the truth.

It is stupid to underestimate the power of stupidity.
brentan comments on Jul 15, 2018:
I can't help thinking a huge part of the world population is stupid. That's in terms of IQ. Stupidity, like cleverness, has its benefits as well as problems. The downside of wisdom is articulated well in the Bible, Ecclesiastes 1:18: For with much wisdom comes much sorrow, and as knowledge grows, grief increases. We need to be fair about this. The power of intelligent people to cause havoc is huge too. Historically, I don't know which side does the most harm. Another point I would raise in defense of stupid people is that they are probably entitled to be dumb. If you're born dumb, that's the luck of the draw.

What is reality?
brentan comments on Jul 15, 2018:
I think it's everyone's view of the world so there as many realities as there are people. I think truth is the aggregate of all the realities. That probably comes from Hegel. Other than that, it's the thing that can bite sometimes.

These memes, or whatever they are, can be very trite and invite the cynic in us to express frustration. But hope must be a good thing. A friend must be invaluable as we get older. I see a lot of bitterness around me and I'm sure it comes from loss of hope.

brentan comments on Jul 14, 2018:
Is Christo-centric a word? You know, looking at the world through the Christian perspective. And 'infidel' must mean 'unfaithful' or maybe 'not faithful' to Islam. I'm not sure what 'heathen' means. I really like the way English has so many ways of expressing ideas that are close but not the same. And I think we always have been too lazy to use them properly.

brentan comments on Jul 14, 2018:
I think life is an opportunity. It is relatively short anyway. It used to 'nasty, brutish and short'. Now it's better but our minds are so sophisticated we tend to criticise what might be the best of times. Good writers usually have read avidly. We don't even need to read books to make favourable comparisons with many other people's lives around the world. TV news can confirm it every day. In other words, stick with it. Read a wonderful book. Visit a rose garden. Buy a latté. But maybe you have very particular reasons for feeling the way you do and I guess we'll hear about them soon.

Civic morality
brentan comments on Jul 13, 2018:
I have a feeling that morality started with cave-dwellers who worked out what rules work best for the survival of the tribe. I'm guessing that the individual's survival depended on the tribe so the tribe was the sustainer of life. So would it work still as a guiding light for society even though we're out of the caves and very self-centred in our modern world? I think so, so long as we never lose sight that society must be the focus for morals and we never allow independent, subjective morals to dominate the issue.

My kind of therapy right here.
brentan comments on Jul 13, 2018:
We must make sure the working class don't get to see these memes. We need them in the projects, surrounded by grey buildings, far from the sea or anything remotely beautiful. Some groups might learn to live fulfilling lives, hopefully just the rich and upper middle-class. They can self-actualise, Maslow-style, and the rest can eat, sleep and multiply.

Financial status, body image mean very little at nudist resorts | Troy Media
brentan comments on Jul 12, 2018:
I don’t think you could explain the feeling of freedom to someone who doesn’t feel the desire at all. I mean, look at my photo. Any sexual attractiveness I ever had is gone. If I went to a nudist place it would be for a feeling – a lack of restriction, a couldn’t care less, let it all hang out experience. Some day, not that far off, I will be dead. Strolling around in the nude for a while would make me feel alive. Especially if I got stung in the balls by a nettle.

It could have all started in a cave. You know, trying to stay alive. Tribe survives = good Tribe wiped out = bad I'm not sure how we got from that to 'masturbation will weaken you spiritually' and believing that the Gnostic Gospels is heretical. Caves are responsible for lots of mad religious ideas. We should treat them with great respect, not just because of what happened in Thailand. In pre-history or thereabouts, caves were the entrance to the other world. Later, louts like Mohammad would use the cave called Hira on a mountain near Mecca to symbolise a connection with God. http://witcombe.sbc.edu/sacredplaces/caves.html

brentan comments on Jul 12, 2018:
The odd thing about it is that the gospels aren't complicated. It's not like we can say that we misunderstood the man because he was an intellectual. And yet there has always been a huge proportion of Christians who can't tell the difference between your typical pharisee and Christ himself. I boil it all down to this: the pharisees keep on about religious laws and Christ kept harping on about mercy. Example: Don't leave the donkey in the ditch on the sabbath even if work is forbidden. Do the decent thing! Free the poor animal.

Well, who needs enemies when we have our own minds to torture us? This has got to stop! I got the feeling you were talking in the terms of Eckart Tolle. I hope so because I think he gives great advice. I thought the concept of the pain-burden that he expanded on in A New Earth was inspired. One way or another, you’re slowing things down to ‘give your head peace’ as Northern Irish people say when someone is giving them grief. With a bit of luck, you’ll have days that are even better than acceptable – pleasant even. I hope so.
Yup, that's me!! LOL

Maybe you are the one person who can be objective about relationship issues. That should be good. But you would poor in experience. Then there's the people who are married several times and viewed as experts on marriage. What's that about?

What You Need to Know About Neurodiversity
brentan comments on Jul 12, 2018:
I think that this is a great time for humanist concepts of value in diversity. I fear it's all talk in a world where competition for resources was never so high (and I don't mean in the jungle). I mean competition for jobs, mates, that type of thing. My guess is that while organisations rise up to combat ignorance, it will just go underground and intensify. I hope I'm wrong. I don't know what to make of all the TV shows nowadays that have autistic people demonstrating their almost supernatural abilities in the pursuit of criminals, medical cures etc. By the way, that movie Temple Grantin was great!
I guess we're all going to hell. ;)
brentan comments on Jul 12, 2018:
If I had to go to Hell, I would really like to go Dante's Limbo, where all the old Greek philosophers walk around all day discussing interesting topics - a bit like here, only forever. Technically, I suppose Limbo isn't exactly in Hell. It's a kind of ante-chamber. In Christopher Marlowe's Dr. Faustus, Mephistopheles claims he is in Hell even as himself and Faust discuss (dispute) the big questions of life and death: Meph. But, Faustus, I am an instance to prove the contrary (the pain of Hell), For I am damned, and am now in hell. Faust. How! now in hell! Nay, an this be hell, I’ll willingly be damn’d here; What? walking, disputing, &c.? That sounds a lot more interesting than Heaven.

brentan comments on Jul 11, 2018:
Everybody gets 3 bins here, for garbage, recycle and biodegradable. I'm not completely sure what is recyclable either. But I use them fastidiously and my 2 boys, when they still lived with me, thought I was over the top. The local shop gives me funny looks when I 'bring my canvas bags to the supermarket' as Tim Minchin insists. I think it's because I read James Lovelock's book about Gaia. The thing is, though, Lovelock said it too late to avoid the pollution of the earth - that we had already done the damage and the earth cannot recover. I'm sure he knows what he's talking about but I'm going to carry on in denial anyway.

brentan comments on Jul 9, 2018:
It's not socialism in the Russian sense. It's more like socialism in a European sense. In other words, it's a balance of free market and socialised services. It works pretty well. There is no pretence like in Soviet Russia or Communist China that the system is idyllic. There is always tension between the money-makers and the government that wants their money to provide services free to the public. In a sense, though, surely socialism in America is a matter of degree. Aren't state and federal taxes (in fact, any taxation) a socialist way of financing utilities. So maybe the argument is really about how far to extend socialist practice, and not whether to bring these practices into the system as a new thing.
