Oscar Wilde.
brentan comments on Oct 17, 2018:
I watched a movie about his life from his time in prison to his death. It is called The Happy Prince with Rupert Everett playing Oscar. A sad film, wonderfully acted.

brentan comments on Oct 17, 2018:
My guess is the age of meritocracy is over for the moment and false values are being adopted and shared to overthrow the old way and give power to people who don't deserve it. Religion is one good way to rise to the top without merit, often without any sincerity and loaded with unverifiable benefits to society.
Take me to church?

"Paris is worth a mass" said Protestant Henry IV of France. OK, Paris isn't on offer anymore but some things can be worth it, like friendship, family etc.

Aboumba Masikini & Abeti Masikini - Kinshasa 1974 [youtube.com]
brentan comments on Oct 17, 2018:
Excellent - thank you! I suppose the first part is the African version of folk-rock. It's a hybrid that I really enjoy. The only African singer I know is Jusuf N'Dour who was introduced to Europe by Peter Gabriel. I have his album Set in my collection for many years now.
Cannabis became legal today in Canada.

That's a coincidence. I've just come across it recently in the book Days Without End by Sebastian Barry. Not much is said except they dress as women, change into men's clothes to go into battle and then go back to wearing women's clothes after.

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.
FORTUITOUS: /fôrˈto͞oədəs/: happening by accident or chance rather than design.

Is there an evolutionary reason behind homosexuality?
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.
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.
Members should not be allowed to write posts that simply link to something that is behind a paywall.
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.

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.

JFC, I need to cut the FB cord.
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.
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.

New sex scandal.
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.
