Moral philosophy
brentan comments on Jul 14, 2018:
I love it. I'm going to see Jordon Peterson and Sam Harris battle it out tonight in Dublin over whether we need a god to make us moral people.
I have fixed a hard date for myself - unless there is any improvement in my life over the next ...
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.
Quick one. Would like to hear mainly from the ladies on this once

brentan comments on Jul 14, 2018:
No, I don't know that guy at all. I love stories about post apocalypse worlds and dystopian worlds. Anything from The Walking Dead to Idiocracy. But I never read a novel about it. The idea never entered my head. I don't know why.
Frankly not much of anything.
brentan comments on Jul 13, 2018:
My life is similar. I think if I was wanted or needed for anything, I would do it. Otherwise, I have my bucket list of good books to read before I die. I trust you have enough things to do to keep life interesting too.
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.
Yep, friday night.

Life can be very, very good sometimes. Gratitude is the right attitude.
It has to be hard to save lives!
brentan comments on Jul 13, 2018:
I Almost Died In Your Arms Tonight The idea seems to have come from the French 'la petite mort' (the little death).
Religion has done many good things as well as caused much pain and suffering, death and ignorance.
brentan comments on Jul 13, 2018:
I'm going to give it a high number because I dread to think what life could be like if it had never existed. 80/20 for me.
What is your ratio of comments to posts? And what does that tell us?
brentan comments on Jul 13, 2018:
It might say something about confidence. Or how strong our opinions are. There must be other things but that's all I can think of now. One thing for sure is that if there are no initial posts, that's it. So thanks, people, whoever you are!
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.
Look very hard you just might see god in a plop of bird poo! LOL!

Ah, sure it must be true - God is everywhere!

I think you are wasting your time in the sense of hoping to engage sensibly, but not if you enjoy the discussions for their own sake. I think I would prefer to have unproductive discussions with people than no interaction at all.

There’s a lot of toxic stuff going on. I think there always was but nowadays there is no need to stay silent about it. I hope it’s some use to share with us strangers even though we can only guess what you’ve dealt with and try to empathise. I hope tomorrow is a better day.
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.

brentan comments on Jul 12, 2018:
My bad. I'm a passive atheist. But that's close to being an agnostic, I think.
Most Christians are unaware of this

There you go now. God said "My thoughts are high above your thoughts" (Isaiah 55:8).
Good and evil are human nature.
brentan comments on Jul 12, 2018:
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

Be like Jesus...
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.
Why A Top Religious Studies Scholar Is Now An Atheist
brentan comments on Jul 12, 2018:
There is a great opportunity to become knowledgeable about Christianity for free on YouTube. The professor is a guy named Dale Martin and the lectures come from Yale. His counterpart for the Old Testament is Christine Hayes and she is super too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtQ2TS1CiDY=PL369DAFF77FA5FFF8
Do you think this quote is accurate..??
brentan comments on Jul 12, 2018:
I think it's true.
Damn my head! Anxiety makes me relive forty years of old mistakes over and over, randomly.
brentan comments on Jul 12, 2018:
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
brentan comments on Jul 12, 2018:
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? I guess that would mean the couple who stay in a long-term happy relationship are too dumb to know the reasons they should be splitting up. Whatever you do, don't go near them for advice!

brentan comments on Jul 12, 2018:
Mine has been a source of pleasure for over 50 years now. I forgave it a long time ago for not being huge and we have a comfortable relationship with each other. Even urinating is somewhat pleasant too, especially if you’re out somewhere like a forest and you can aim anywhere you like.

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.
Sometime all you want is to be wanted.
brentan comments on Jul 12, 2018:
You bet! And I must check online to see what the experts have to say about why that is and how it came about. Then there's the issue of us not wanting people - using headphones, man-spreading, MGTOW and what- not. That's in public, I guess. I wonder do people coming home from stressful jobs just want to be left alone instead of wanted?

brentan comments on Jul 11, 2018:
I was comfortable with the Africa story. I had this notion of the exit from Africa in a constant north-easterly direction until they all ended up in Sumer, blossomed into farmers and started thinking an awful lot about everything. Maybe lots of people went north or north-west and got to Spain and Italy long before the barricades were set up in Ceuta and Melilla.

Ugghhh My mail order pharmacy representative just wished me a "blessed day"
brentan comments on Jul 11, 2018:
I always understood 'have a great day' as 'go fuck off'. Maybe 'have a blessed day' means 'go to hell, you unbeliever'.
About recycling: I'm guilty that I'm not a Earth conscious person.
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.

Dear World, please send to the American people ".
brentan comments on Jul 10, 2018:
Life isn't static and times change. When the call to 'give us your tired and poor' went out, America was a new world. I think we need to consider the world we live in today. Can America really afford (and I don't just mean financially) to live in thrall to an 18th century ideal or does it need to control its intake of tired and poor?
Democrats ignore the left at their peril.
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.
What can be done about over perception so one could have a moment of peace?
brentan comments on Jul 9, 2018:
I find cooking is a great help. Ordinary cooking. Music or radio in the background. A few alcoholic drinks from time to time. No idea whether weed would help or make things worse. Walking is great for mood improvement. I think the main idea is to slow things down.
How would you have handled a situation like this?
brentan comments on Jul 9, 2018:
I wonder what the dynamics of the situation is. That the person who helps is the only person available to take out their frustration? Well done for trying to help and fully understand if you're reluctant to do it again.

brentan comments on Jul 8, 2018:
I don't think the American people have shown themselves welcoming and generous. But how did it ever happen that immigration laws could be flouted to this extent? Was it because ordinary American employers could benefit from the lower cost of labour with illegals?

brentan comments on Jul 8, 2018:
We like to ask questions. Children love asking questions. Where do babies come from? Why is Granny dead? We feed them pap because we fear they cannot handle the truth. But what are the questions for? Not just for the sake of conversation, I'm sure. They really want to know. I wonder why. I feel it is part of our evolution, asking questions to understand things better so as to be safer in our environment. Or to do better in our environment, maybe.
An ex-in law died this past weekend.
brentan comments on Jul 8, 2018:
I'm interested that even though we have a dislike for church ritual we still want some kind of ritual. Some cultures had it both ways, celebrating a funeral mass and then a wake. I think the ritual serves to say that the death of a life matters. The trouble with church rituals is that they also serve to say the church matters and that can be annoying. I like the idea of drinks all round at someone's death because I think it affirms that life must go on even though our part is over.
Hello fellow non-believers
brentan comments on Jul 8, 2018:
I think you really struggle when Christians talk about the existence of God that is confirmed in their hearts. It's where religion and psychology meet and separate at the same time. For the Christian, the heart is where the person and God meet. For the atheist, it is where a person and his or her feelings meet. That's probably when the atheist and the Christian should agree to differ.

Groucho, harpo, donald duck, mickey, daisy, buggs, marma duke, Calvin, Hobbs and Ms. Piggie.
brentan comments on Jul 6, 2018:
We must be careful not to make the same mistakes as the religious groups. We have the same tendency to make doctrines and glorify people. We also shouldn't become smug or self-satisfied and feel contempt for the non-believers. It is good to see atheist groups becoming charity conscious. I guess they can be fairly accused of not wanting the religious organisations to have a monopoly on virtue but it is a fine thing to see and I doubt competing with religion is not the only reason. Some religious groups find little reason to take an interest in ecology because they believe the earth is meant to be destroyed by human greed and then saved by Christ. The atheist community can highlight the problems and communicate ways to improve the earth's condition.

A Review of Breaking the Spell: Religion as a Natural Phenomenon by Daniel C. Dennet
brentan comments on Jul 6, 2018:
Dostoevsky's wrote that atheists 'were always talking about something else'. The Archbishop of Canterbury suggested those other things were strategy for survival and explanation of difficult things, two things that religion does not do well. Dennet comes at it from the points of view of agency and intention on God's part. Religious people believe that God was the agent who created the world and his intention is to save mankind. It is a great article, thank you for posting it, and encourages people to look at the development of religion from the perspective of evolutionary biology.
More People Are Fighting for Human Rights Than Vs. Them
brentan comments on Jul 6, 2018:
I think it's hard to behave justly when employees struggle just to pay basic costs of living. You might like to just but the system owns you. I think another problem with the struggle for justice is that when society makes good laws to combat injustices like prejudice, the prejudice goes underground and increases.
