That's a very lovely piece of music although the idea of playing a flute made out of bread is preposterous!

That's hard to believe. In America, the land of the free. Good grief! I think that article is old so Trump can't be blamed for initiating it.
Is god just chaos theory?
brentan comments on Oct 16, 2018:
From what I read, chaos was the Babylonian goddess Tiamat who was killed by the god Marduk. Apparently, the word used for chaos that reigned in the the Bible before creation has the same root as Tiamat but this time it is Jehovah that conquers it.
Never trust an introvert ?
brentan comments on Oct 16, 2018:

RODOMONTADE. - Noun....extravagant boasting, inflated talk or behaviour, bragging.
brentan comments on Oct 15, 2018:
Nice one! Middle French < Italian Rodomonte, the boastful king of Algiers in Orlando Innamorato and Orlando Furioso + Middle French -ade. I got this from the dictionary. Apparently, 'ade' denotes the process.

Is there an evolutionary reason behind homosexuality? Not a judgemental question, one asked out of ...
brentan comments on Oct 14, 2018:
My guess is that it is part of an evolutionary process that spreads a spectrum of sexual orientations through our genes as the best way to ensure the survival and growth of the species. I suspect that the genes always know what they are doing but we don’t understand it yet.
I started a new group that was denied. I was told by admin "Yeah... it doesn't help us promote ...
brentan comments on Oct 13, 2018:
That seems a bit arbitrary. Maybe the irrelevant topics are getting out of hand. That's probably no consolation to you because you would feel it on a personal level. I hope you can come to an agreement.

brentan comments on Oct 13, 2018:
I think similar. I don't know if it's just plain lazy or lack of ability or confidence to write down opinions. But it sure shunts all the work on to the reader. I'm not sure it should be banned because it's lazy or whatever - maybe if it's illegal. Banning it outright might exclude people completely from contributing to the forum.

Only the U.S. actively chooses not to have universal healthcare

I have a picture in my mind of sick Americans in trailer parks placing their patriotic flags on their trailers and thanking God they live in a country that deprives them of the help they need.

I AM NOT CONDONING THIS! but it's interesting. Normalizing Pedophilia [youtube.com]
brentan comments on Oct 13, 2018:
That was a brave talk. I believe she is correct about paedophilia being natural. It has taken a section of society a long time to come to terms with homosexuality and look on it as both legal and natural. We can’t make paedophilia legal because it truly is an offence to children so it must remain illegal. The same goes for consumers of child porn because they are the market for the producers who hurt children making such movies. But the orientation should be viewed, I think, as a location on the spectrum of sexual orientation that is not criminal in itself.

brentan comments on Oct 12, 2018:
The second one harks back to the answer Jesus gave his disciples when they asked how they might know the end is coming. It's in Matthew 24. It was used a lot by JWs to prove this is the end times. The curious thing about is that when Jesus lists off all the lousy things that will happen, he says that those are not the signs of the end. He says these things are a matter of course. Then he goes on to say what will be the sign of the end.
Truth as such has no value in itself. - - - - You need enough truth (= adequate knowledge of the...
brentan comments on Oct 11, 2018:
Truth is general and personal. I don't think it's fair to say it is no more than knowledge. Where knowledge is concerned, we could call truth true knowledge. But it is also honesty. Speaking truth means representing the world as best we know it. Not speaking truth warps the reality of life and leads people into a form of hell. We can't say truth is overrated. It is probably hugely underrated in our cowardly attempts to advance our personal goals by false representation, ignoring the damage to other people and ourselves.

brentan comments on Oct 11, 2018:
Neil Young wrote a great song called Cortez The Killer which idealised the way of life of the native people in South America. I'm sure the lyrics were nonsense. The indigenous people were just as bad on a lower tech level. It's time to be objective about our species - we are all the same. I would say stop apologising. That's how it was. That's pretty much how it still is. I hope we can change.

brentan comments on Oct 11, 2018:
Might is right. They were so brainwashed about religion hundreds of years ago but it hasn't stopped yet. I once read that the powers that be in America assume that they have tacit approval from the people to do anything necessary to keep their standard of living going. They haven't actually asked them (I think) but take it as an unwritten agreement.

brentan comments on Oct 11, 2018:

brentan comments on Oct 10, 2018:
I'm so pleased to see penalties imposed that will make these organisations re-think their policies. I had read years ago that that the Watchtower HQ had the names of thousands of abusers in their files but refused to hand them over. Their two witness rule should not subvert secular justice. If the law demands that sexual accusations belong in the criminal justice system, the police would have the files without depending on the goodwill (demonstrated to be nil) of religious organisations.

brentan comments on Oct 10, 2018:
Being raised a Catholic, I think it's fair to say that in general, no training is given to children about living a virtuous life. In my day, the subject was never discussed. Our perception of the relationship between the sexes was that women protected their virginity at all costs so it was the business of a man to find a way past the obstructions.

brentan comments on Oct 9, 2018:
I saw it too. I was very pleased with the effort they put in to describe the JW life. I'm sure it must be very difficult for 'normal' people to grasp the awful truth of the religion as a way of life. The actress who played the believing mum was terrific, while not taking away from the professionalism of everyone involved.

Narcissistic Sociopath Symptoms
brentan comments on Oct 9, 2018:
I think many Christians think all these people die because they can't call on God for help because they don't believe in the Christian God, or if they do, they call on the wrong interpretation of the Christian god. If you don't fall into those categories 'time and unforeseen occurrence fall them all' (Ecclesiastes 9:11) so it's just bad luck.
