As I reported earlier, I know of one not vaccinated individual who got it, gave it to his wife, and then too late for him sought treatment. Everyone else is fine at the moment. I know of no sickness amoung the majority of vaccinated individuals. I think that outside of irritating our system, the anti-vaxxers are simply trying to terrorize themselves into noncompliance with good sense. I g

Completely cool Ray. But to me sinizing, making every little fault into a sin, seems dangerously hyper sensitive. There is an old Catholic joke: Father McGinty returns home after Saturday confessions at the local convent. The first thing he does is to pour a big glass of Jamesons. A fellow asks him how it went. Father McGinty says, “It was like being stoned with popcorn.” When I di

Well, it is different because we can’t ask how could have built these constructions with copper tools. The circles seem so much more human, I guess.

There are many paths in human spirituality Ray. It is probably a mistake to favor one over another. In the West, we focus more on individuality and free expression. Or, perhaps, we used to. Life is always an adventure full of thrills and spills. We’ll see what develops.

Years and years ago, back in college I wrote a paper for a thrology class on “The Boston Catechism.” This small book laid out the rules about sin for Catholics. What struck me was the rules made a sin, theoretically at least , difficult. There were 3 rules fir a think that made and action a sin. 1. It had to be one of God’s laws. 2. The individual had to know that he or she was breaking on

Jules is a real interesting guy trying to do the impossible: earn a living as a philosophy blogger. This has to be really hard. But, I wish him well and pass along his good ideas.

“ Thomas Traherne was a 17th century Anglican parson (his dates are roughly 1636 to 1674), who lived in Hereford. He wrote some poetry and some religious prose. He was never famous or well-connected, like John Donne or George Herbert. He was not some radical outsider, like William Blake. He died young and uncelebrated, and remained almost completely unknown until 1896, when some of his manuscript

We returned to Florida Friday. We learned that a neighbor recently dies of Covid. He was an anti-vaxer. He got the disease but didn’t go to the Doctor. When his wife caught Covid from him, they went to the hospital. He was too far gone but his wife received the anti-body treatment. He died, she survived. I recommend getting the vaccine unless you have a known issue. Life seems preferab

QuoteSusan opined The topic is Theology' and as I said in the OP, I think it is a non-subject. How can something, or the nature of that something, that does not exist be studied in the first place? If you really believe this, then why the post at all? In a way, this is one of the most arbitrary things you have ever said, and that is saying a lot. This is supposed to be a discussion board

Do you mind if I asl, in a post a out “theology” what people are you talking about? Theology is an academic discipline. Are you trying to talk about specific theologians you might have known? If so, can you name them?

QuoteSusan realized I wake up every morning and know that it has kept going all night, so am delighted about that! This is it Susan. That delight = god! PS, bringing up theology is talking about god, even if you pretend to know nothing about it or want to criticize it, etc. You are still talking about it!

Thank you for bringing up another post about God. You talk about God more than anyone I know. To me everything we talk about is a product of experience and imagination, thinking about things. That is not a criticism of anything per se. IMO, it is the way we do things. So for me, I suggest putting your hand over your heart. Feel-it beating. That’s God within you.

You’re finding the way for all of us Brian. I see us as “arbitrary”, well meaning but we don’t like being disagreed with! One of the rules of Human All-too-human morality is that people are altruistic with other people’s money.

No, I guess I would call it a connected necessity rather than a “separate necessity.” I look at things realistically, if they (a thing, a religion, a science) are there and have evolved for thousands of years, they are real. The concept of necessity really wouldn’t apply. But that is just me.

QuoteSusan queried Quote Maybe religions are functions of natural selection. I'd say a definite no to that one.Can you think of a reason why it might be? Natural selection is a, or the, key insight of Darwinism Susan. Now, I know you did it asking me a question, but, still, your question throws Darwin’s concept out the window. You can’t be a proponent of the ToE as good science and

Great point Susan. If religions are human creations and if humans are creations of nature, then all our creations are creations of nature. Can nature just ever be plainly wrong? Maybe religions are functions of natural selection.

I’m reading Stephen Jay Gould’s Full House. He’a big on bacteria. Viruses seem to be able to give bacteria a run for their money, I heard there was a new variant working its way through Great Britain. I had a lemonade with dinner tonight for some vitamin C. Got to keep our immune systems primed!

Great point Gerda, if people think that things can’t be done, then they won’t be done. Perhaps, the necessity of religion is that it aids us in getting things done.

Climate change activists do not believe that global warming is a “temporary human” problem unless we change the situation quickly. QuoteSusan stated Religions and their beliefs won't do it Their leaders surely cannot fail to notice that their beliefs and devotion make no difference to geology.

QuoteSusan stated The fact that there can't be many people anywhere in the world nowadays who still believe that we can actually control the natural world is another strong indication that religion is no use for that purpose. I think there are many, many people who think that we can control the world. They are called environmentalists. Climate change states that we humans are controllin

“ In Roman mythology, sinners (as defined by the Roman societal and cultural mores of their time) are sent to Tartarus for punishment after death. Virgil describes Tartarus in great detail in the Aeneid, Book VI. He described it as expansive. It is surrounded by three perimeter walls, beyond which flows a flaming river named "the Phlegethon.
