Re: wondering...

We recently went to listen to the author of the Engine 2 diet. Interesting stuff, but different I think than primal. Some science behind E2 as well.

Re: wondering...

You're right. The description of the father was based on the basic human society that was in play at the time. And that's why Jesus showed up. To tell them that they had it wrong. From the Pharisees all the way to the beggars and everyone in between. [more]

Re: wondering...

And yet you describe an entirely earthly love that spawns from our evolution.

Not quite. Rather, it's a filtered version of what once was.

Yeah. That's where we separate. From where I stand, there is no before, or ever [more]

Re: wondering...

and yet wasn't that hateful middle stuff showing how god 'loves us'.

That's certainly one enduring if not endearing interpretation, suggested to and accepted by Eve. It's gotten uglier and uglier as time has gone by. That [more]

Re: wondering...

Contradictory: If we love another as we love our self, love can't reign supreme, AND, we can't love another as we wish to be loved in return.

Re: wondering...

that one phrase is the entire point of the Gospels.

Humans have always loved rules, and in particular, rules that we can attribute to a god. When we agree with god's rules, we can then 'righteously' enforce those rules upon others, [more]

What's impossible about it? Why can't people just do that?

For the same reasons that "emotional outrage needs to be kept completely in check". Loving does not demand that we be completely irrational.

Re: wondering...

Love for our children is incorporated into the means by which we protect our children... on several levels. The temper and tone with which we discipline, for example. Choosing a kindergarten, advising them on relationships as they grow. [more]

Re: wondering...

By the way- the majority doesn't rule in America. The powerful minority do.

Another rephrase then.

Those with greater power will always deny those with less power the exercise of their individual rights.

Re: The other side of kids and hell

Apparently exchanges like this are not as impactful as anyone thinks. Per 1pg's reference (3/7), we're born with predispositions.

I've learned this in a very vivid way through my fourth child...

I see the pendulum swings, and wonder at the power of money and wealth.

Using the lords and serfs analogy as a human relations metric, I'd still argue that not much has changed. The lords and serfs of today view each other in much the same way, and for the same reasons.
