brentan comments on Oct 18, 2019:
I'll just add this song because it is an elegant and succinct expression of being lonely. I can't say whether 'seems I'm not alone in being alone' is much comfort. Anyway, I hope your lonely feeling can be put down to a particularly crappy day and new days provide new opportunities. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ePwjipxjAmA

Did King David Rape Bathsheba?
brentan comments on Oct 17, 2019:
It's a very biased story. David seems to have been running a protection racket in the hills prior to becoming king (1 Samuel 25). He did commit adultery and also arranged to have the husband killed (2 Samuel 11: 3,4, 14,15). Then, when it came time to pay the price, David's son's life is taken to atone for what David had done (2 Samuel 12:13, 14). It is without a doubt 'one fucked up story' and I would really love to know how people reading it back when it was written down for the first time accepted David as a heroic character who was loved by God (1 Samuel 13:14).

And to think sophia means wisdom: Wisdom cries aloud in the street, in the markets she raises her voice; at the head of the noisy streets she cries out; at the entrance of the city gates she speaks: “How long, O simple ones, will you love being simple? How long will scoffers delight in their scoffing and fools hate knowledge? Proverbs 1:20-22.

Wow! Bill 'the hypocrite' Barr!!! Barr slams attacks on religious values, says 'moral upheaval' ...
brentan comments on Oct 13, 2019:
I guess he's a hypocrite if he's trying to convince people that everything was rosy in the garden when the country in general was religious. I agree with him in the sense that things have gone downhill since the demise of the power of the church. He probably only sees two options: stay secular or return to Mother Church. The lack of a third alternative, humanism, gaining any traction, makes him look correct. The values of secular humanism seem to be a luxury for the comfortable and intellectual and leaves a huge swathe of the public with few values to aspire to and be willing to suffer for,.

brentan comments on Oct 13, 2019:
I like Jordan Peterson's idea that adopting responsibility for ourselves and those around us gives life meaning. But what about something more direct that sings to our souls and adds a quality to our lives such as Robert Pirsig wrote about. I think William Blake hit a profound note with his concept that the reality and quality of our lives are the product of our imaginations. I think many people fall back on art and culture when they lose their religions because they are related, all being expressions of human aspiration. What about the uneducated, then? They are robbed so much more than anyone.

brentan comments on Oct 13, 2019:
Yes indeed, and if we are inclined to get testy about it, we're told God is the potter and we are the clay so he can make whatever he wants and we have no right to criticise: You are only a human being. Who do you think you are to talk back to God? Does the clay say to the potter, "Why did you make me like this?" Doesn't the potter have the power over the clay to make one pot for special purposes and another for garbage from the same lump of clay? - Romans 9:20,21.
Your groaner for today...

Barr claims secularism is the cause of many of our society's ills. [thehill.com]
brentan comments on Oct 13, 2019:
I suspect he's right. But that doesn't mean I'd like a return to the old religion. I hope we're living in an interim period between old-style religion and an emerging humanism. I'm not confident about it, though.

I do love Spanish/Hispanic culture so much! I'm a very poor student of the language but I get little bits like 'if the singer shuts up who will talk about life'. I love the passion brought to song. Recently I've come across YT videos by Silvia Perez Cruz, a young singer who does what I call Flamenco style singing.

brentan comments on Oct 8, 2019:
The ancient Hebrews believed things operating to their natural purpose were holy and vice-versa. Boiling a kid goat in its mother's milk was forbidden because the purpose of milk was to nourish, not kill. Sea creatures were deemed inedible if they didn't swim like fish. It seems a strange consciousness to equate purpose with morality but maybe the real problem was in pushing it to the extreme.

brentan comments on Oct 6, 2019:
The Bible writers seemed to have a different idea of justice and mercy than we do. We tend to think mercy will soften the hand of justice but it seems justice had to be fully carried out in the Old Testament because of the blessing and curse options given to the people in Deuteronomy Chapter 28. So mercy worked differently, in that Jehovah would forgive and help his people *after* he had punished them severely.
