Re: interesting graphic

Whether we admit it or not, we all struggle with communicating reality. We all struggle to be understood. The best communication occurs between people who have a long history together. This shared history can sometimes result in the unique and [more]

Re: afterlife

We went for drugs for the poodle. Gave her a dose, and she seemed more anxious and was behaving oddly. Looked up the drug and it's the doggie equivalent of Thorazine, an antipsychotic! She'd probably have done better with no drugs. Except for her [more]

Re: afterlife

Thanks. It was a fun trip. Colder in CA than I expected, but being with family was great!

Sorry to sound self-congratulatory / specie-centric...

Re: afterlife

Perhaps there is something after death but any claims would be nothing more than conjecture.

I agree.

Re: afterlife

It's THEIR fault.

Am I wrong in thinking that the common thread in all our relational travails is us, and the metrics that we embrace?

When I wrote "our knowledge is always incomplete" I was referring to our attempts at fairness in our relationships with each other. We don't know motivation, and can only guess. We need juries, judges, the ability to appeal decisions. Our [more]

Re: afterlife

But I am regularly alarmed and often sickened by the societal effects of religion.

Religion is but a tool, like any other, that humans use for effect. Secularity is a false safe haven. The problem is not religion, race, political [more]

We can make attempts at fairness, but our knowledge is always incomplete... so they'll only ever be attempts. The separation of powers into [more]

Agreed. That's why the separation of church and state is so very important.

Re: afterlife

I'm not a religious historian, but I suspect that the description of an everlasting, ever-burning hell-of-revenge was warmly embraced by those who sold indulgences, or had other reasons to gain (non-RL value systems) from people's fears.

Why do you make that leap? What is the motivation?

I have nothing new to offer here. I still believe that the degree of love that we seek from each other, and seek to offer each other, is an out-of-place artifact. We have more wisdom [more]
