Sometimes the glass IS HALF FULL ..sometimes IT IS half empty…

It’s much easier to believe in an all encompassing benevolent force when the glass is more than half full..

Been there done that in both places…

That’s why i just describe ‘IT’ as a force..

Sometimes it ain’t pretty..but i guess tHere ain’t no choice but to deal with..IT on a moment to moment basis..in the NOW…!

WE all answer to nature..and our nature as human beings..that for sure is something none of can escape..on this planet ..as long as we live..

But i say why not enjoy bliss forever in the NOW..as when one is in that place…

EVERYTHING ELSE IS A MOOT POINT..:)
NO WORRIES…

BE HAPPY..IS WHAT IT CAN BE

ALL ABOUT..:)

HAPPINESS CAN BE THE ALL

ENCOMPASSING TRUTH…

OR DESPAIR CAN BE
THE ALL

ENCOMPASSING TRUTH…

I CHOOSE THE FORMER..
AND STAY THERE IN
THE
NOW..:) :) :)!!!

  1. Full discussion from the Wrong Planet Website..a support site for folks with Asperger’s Syndrome..a higher functioning form of Autism..where on this site..the informal polls suggest IQ’s from 140 to 160..but there is often..great deficits..in the most important type of intelligence..for overall human survival .. emotional intelligence..also ‘known’ as cognitive empathy…

    the war goes on..to develop that type of intelligence..the greatest challenge of life..in my opinion for folks with this disorder..which i personally think..is more culturally derived..from a life spent in mechanical cognition..rather than actually inherently derived….

    I know this from my own life..per my life in the academic world..as opposed to a life of social activity..working in a military bowling center….

    Working with people..naturally brings greater cognitive empathy..or social cognition…

    Working with things..naturally decreases cognitive empathy..or social cognition..

    And that’s just common sense…

    Back in the days when i went to college there were signs posted in the computer lab and engineering departments..that said

    DON’T FORGET ABOUT HUMANS..
    YOU ARE A HUMAN..GET OUT AND SOCIALIZE..TOO…

    Not surprising at all that research shows that measures of empathy among young adults in college has fallen about 30 percent in the last 3 decades…

    Computers can kill cognitive empathy through endeavors like video games…

    But on the other hand..they make excellent tools for communication as well..that yes..can potentially increase cognitive empathy..as the mind is often more fully exposed in words..than in thoughts..but..and a big but..there is also emotional empathy..the empathy of feeling what others feel in real flesh and blood human interaction..the computer as a tool for communication..has a long way..if ever to fully feed and provide..that most basic of all human needs…

    to connect and truly be

    touched….

    ANYWAY..this information is presented for educational purposes only…no commercial vested interests..associated.. under fair use..per any potential copyright concerns..for the website..quoted and linked..below..

    If his feet weren’t nailed to his perch he’d fall off. Or to put it another way…

    A customer enters a pet shop.

    Customer: ‘Ello, I wish to register a complaint.

    (The owner does not respond.)

    C: ‘Ello, Miss?

    Owner: What do you mean “miss”?

    C: I’m sorry, I have a cold. I wish to make a complaint!

    O: We’re closin’ for lunch.

    C: Never mind that, my lad. I wish to complain about this God what I purchased not half an hour ago from this very boutique.

    O: Oh yes, the, uh, the Hebrew God…What’s,uh…What’s wrong with him?

    C: I’ll tell you what’s wrong with him, my lad. ‘E’s dead, that’s what’s wrong with him!

    O: No, no, ‘e’s uh,…he’s resting.

    C: Look, matey, I know a dead god when I see one, and I’m looking at one right now.

    O: No no he’s not dead, he’s, he’s restin’! Remarkable god, the Hebrew god, idn’it, ay? Beautiful plumage!

    C: The plumage don’t enter into it. He’s stone dead.

    O: Nononono, no, no! ‘E’s resting!

    C: All right then, if he’s restin’, I’ll wake him up!

    (shouting at the cage)

    ‘Ello, Mister God! I’ve got a lovely fresh cuttle fish for you if you show…(owner hits the cage)

    O: There, he moved!

    C: No, he didn’t, that was you hitting the cage!

    O: I never!!

    C: Yes, you did!

    O: I never, never did anything…

    C: (yelling and hitting the cage repeatedly) ‘ELLO GOD!!!!!

    Testing! Testing! Testing! Testing! This is your nine o’clock alarm call!

    (Takes god out of the cage and thumps his head on the counter. Throws him up in the air and watches him plummet to the floor.)

    C: Now that’s what I call a dead god.

    O: No, no…..No, ‘e’s stunned!

    C: STUNNED?!?

    O: Yeah! You stunned him, just as he was wakin’ up! Hebrew gods stun easily, major.

    C: Um…now look…now look, mate, I’ve definitely ‘ad enough of this. That god is definitely deceased, and when I purchased him not ‘alf an hour ago, you assured me that his total lack of movement was due to it bein’ tired and shagged out following a prolonged squawk.

    O: Well, he’s…he’s, ah…probably pining for the fjords.

    C: PININ’ for the FJORDS?!?!?!? What kind of talk is that?, look, why did he fall flat on his back the moment I got ‘im home?

    O: The Hebrew God prefers kippin’ on his back! Remarkable god, id’nit, squire? Lovely plumage!

    C: Look, I took the liberty of examining that god when I got it home, and I discovered the only reason that he had been sitting on his perch in the first place was that he’d been NAILED there.

    (pause)

    O: Well, o’course he was nailed there! If I hadn’t nailed that god down, he would have nuzzled up to those bars, bent ’em apart with his beak, and VOOM! Feeweeweewee!

    C: “VOOM”?!? Mate, this god wouldn’t “voom” if you put four million volts through him! ‘E’s bleedin’ demised!

    O: No no! ‘E’s pining!

    C: ‘E’s not pinin’! ‘E’s passed on! This god is no more! He has ceased to be! ‘E’s expired and gone to meet ‘is maker!

    ‘E’s a stiff! Bereft of life, ‘e rests in peace! If you hadn’t nailed ‘im to the perch ‘e’d be pushing up the daisies!
    ‘Is metabolic processes are now ‘istory! ‘E’s off the twig!
    ‘E’s kicked the bucket, ‘e’s shuffled off ‘is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin’ choir invisibile!!

    THIS IS AN EX-GOD!!

    (pause)

    O: Well, I’d better replace him, then.

    (he takes a quick peek behind the counter)

    O: Sorry squire, I’ve had a look ’round the back of the shop, and uh, we’re right out of gods.

    C: I see. I see, I get the picture.

    O: I got a slug.

    (pause)

    C: (sweet as sugar) Pray, does it talk?

    O: Nnnnot really.

    C: WELL IT’S HARDLY A BLOODY REPLACEMENT, IS IT?!!???!!?

    O: Look, if you go to my brother’s pet shop in Bolton, he’ll replace the god for you.

    C: Bolton, eh? Very well.

    The customer leaves.

    Kinda like what happened WHEN humankind finally figured out to have full accessible

    There’s sex..a weak human in the Winter frost ..has to do it a lot..

    So maybe overall GOD is a Penis

    Popular CULTURE thinks so …

    IT’S kinda obvious if ya

    SEX IS EVERYWHERE..

    Aghogday, it’s somewhat ironic that Nietzsche’s own views on establishing a greater you through acts of will, a life affirming carpe diem attitude, dancing to some inner (and real) music is all reflected in your own comments. Other than your focus on a vague god and social outlets via the church the underlying sentiment doesn’t sound very different to me.

    “We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once” –Nietzsche

    The statement “god is dead” is sort of begging the question anyway. It’s a bit like the silly Pascal’s Wager, which essentially says, “assuming the Christian god is the only plausible explanation, it makes sense to believe in him. ” Well thanks Sherlock. Can you repeat that first part again mate? These are men who are still reeling from a world where Christian thought permeated everything and they frame their thoughts accordingly.

    a general philosophy…

    close to

    classical pantheism…

    i do NOT give

    Oh.. and on topic..

    IN my opinion..from fully exploring all the recorded references to the man Jesus..
    including the gnostic gospels..

    Jesus was fully interested in KILLING THE HEBREW FALSE GOD OF PATRIARCHY
    AND OPPRESSION…

    AND YES THAT FALSE GOD IS DYING A SLOW
    AND ‘PAINFUL’ DEATH..
    AS WE SPEAK…

    JESUS BELIEVED IN THE GOD OF FREEDOM..

    BUT..IT’S HARD FOR SOME FOLKS TO LET GO OF OPPRESSING
    OTHER FOLKS FOR THEIR OWN SELFISH NEEDS…

    THEREFORE there is still a lot of that

    FATHER CRAP LEFT..
    IN THE

    new testament….

    But the world
    is
    GROWING
    A VAGINA NOW..
    TOO..

    IT AIN’T ONE BIG
    PENIS
    ANY
    MORE….

    WHEN THOSE TWO..
    MEET AS ONE..
    THEN THE
    REAL
    FUN
    BEGINS…:)

    FOR A NEW WORLD
    ORDER
    OF
    EGALITARIANISM….
    AND
    FULLER MUCH FULLER
    FREEDOM
    FOR
    EVERY
    ONE

    THE ALLITIS….
    OR THE
    BIG
    ONE…

    Star of David

    NICE SYMBOL ABOVE OF
    PENIS AND VAGINA..
    AS
    EQUAL PARTNERS
    IN LIFE…
    AS
    ONE

    IT’S ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT
    CONTROL
    OF REPRODUCTIVE FREEDOM…

    FOR FULLER FREEOM TO HAPPEN
    IN THE WORLD..
    THERE MUST BE FULLER REPRODUCTIVE
    FREEOM…

    TO GET THE
    WHOLE NEW WORLD ORDERED
    JOB
    DONE…;)

    + 1 FOR THE AQUAS

    I found that Aquariuses like to do this. In fact, I am really good at spotting them online now. Whenever someone is saying things to deliberately provoke I ask them if they are Aquarius and they say they are and I am a good guesser but really it’s just I notice a pattern in the Aquas. They always try to offend certain others by what they say. They feel like they are doing the world a service this way. So Aspies, no. Aquas, yes.

    True, but when it is discussed in my church, we make it abundantly clear that that Tim LaHaye Left Behind crap is just that, crap. I recall when my pastor had dedicated several weeks of Bible study to Revelations, not once, but twice, and how he had emphasized that while the evangelical view of the book might be popular, it’s hardly right.

    ArrantPariah wrote:

    Oh, the Evangelical view is extremely popular. Nut cases like Michelle Bachmann go completely unchallenged. I think that it would be extremely valuable if your side could get your version out there.

    The Evangelicals present themselves as being the authentic Christians who believe the word of God, and poo-poo mainline practices and beliefs. The Evangelicals seem to be quite effective in using the mainliners as convenient punching bags.

    Which might tend to discourage otherwise-normal people from attending your church. The Evangelicals are telling us that your churches aren’t any good, and Evangelical churches are a big turn-off for many people. So, a lot of people decide: “Okay. I’ll just take up atheism and stay home.”

    The topic doesn’t really interest me much these days but I don’t see why people shouldn’t speak their minds. We’ve all seen the rambling and often incoherent god rants that pop up in random threads on the internet. Pasting a paragraph worth of slogans together and capitalizing half of the words at random is certainly no better than a reasoned, if blunt, counterpoint.

    And even blunt dismissal is better than crazy. Some of these god posts read like a 1st century peasant rolled in from Galilee and started attacking the first keyboard he spotted. After you read them your first inclination is to make sure your door is locked.

    How’s that?

    …God DOES instruct His people to force others into exile and kill anyone remaining. This, however, is all part of a punishment God intended for those people in the first place. …we can’t escape the Biblical fact that everything that happens, whether good or bad, happens because God allows it to happen.

    yeah, that right there pretty much exemplifies why religion does more harm than good. First there’s the ‘If my god commands it, then it is moral (regardless of how objectively evil it seems to anyone else), and second there’s the, ‘It’s not as bad as it seems, because my god wants it this way,’ excuse for evil and suffering.

    With specific regard to women in the New Testament, a selection of passages for your enjoyment (seriously, AR, have you even read it?!):
    Matthew:
    Jesus says that divorce is permissible when the wife is guilty of fornication. But what if the husband is unfaithful? Jesus doesn’t seem to care about that. 5:32, 19:9
    Abandon your wife and children for Jesus and he’ll give you a big reward. 19:29
    The kingdom of heaven like ten virgins who went to meet their bridegroom. Five had oil for their lamps and five didn’t. When the bridegroom was ready for them, only the five well-oiled virgins got to have sex with him on their wedding night. The bridegroom shunned the other five, saying “Get lost. I don’t even know you.” The moral to the story is this: watch out, you never know when (or with whom) Jesus will come.25:1-13
    (the emphasis of that story is more, ‘be prepared for the rapture,’ but it demonstrates that the NT writers were perfectly fine with polygamy).
    Mark:
    Jesus will reward men who abandon their wives and families. 10:29-30
    Luke:
    “They had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren.”
    Oh God, another barren woman! It’s always the woman’s fault in the Bible. 1:7
    Even Mary had to be “purified” after giving birth to Jesus. Was she defiled by giving birth to the Son of God? 2:22
    Males are holy to God, not females. 2:23
    Abandon your wife and family for Jesus and he’ll give you a big reward. 18:29-30
    John:
    Jesus magically perceived that a Samaritan woman had been married and divorced five times previously. (He could spot a divorced woman a mile away.) Since women weren’t allowed to get a divorce, it was always the woman’s fault and divorced women were considered outcasts. This was a great opportunity for Jesus to explain why the Mosaic marriage laws were unjust and correct them — if he thought they were wrong, that is, which apparently he didn’t. 4:7-18
    Jesus tells Mary Magdalene not to touch him because he hasn’t yet ascended — as if the touch of a woman would defile him and somehow prevent him from ascending into heaven. 20:17
    Acts:
    If you “believe on the Lord Jesus Christ,” then you and your whole family will be saved; otherwise, God will send you all to hell. 16:31
    The jailer was so impressed with the holy jailbreak that he converted on the spot. He and his entire family were baptized that night. It didn’t matter to Paul (or God) what the jailer’s wife and kids thought about it. They were “his” so he could do whatever the hell he wanted with (or to) them. (This stupid story supports the idea of infant baptism, which has divided Christians for centuries.) 16:33
    (apparently a woman’s salvation, or lack thereof, depends entirely on her husband… and, of course, unmarried women don’t exist).
    Romans:
    Paul explains that “the natural use” of women is to act as sexual objects for the pleasure of men. 1:27
    1 Corinthians:
    Paul would prefer that no one marry. But he says “to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife.” 7:1-2
    Paul says “the head of the woman is the man,” meaning that the women are to be subordinate to men. 11:3
    If a woman refuses to cover her head in church, then her her head must be shaved. 11:5-6
    “A man … is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.” 11:7
    “For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man.” 11:8
    “Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.” 11:9
    Women are commanded by Paul to be silent in church and to be obedient to men. He further says that “if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in church.” 14:34-35
    (Great guy, that Paul).
    Ephesians:
    Wives must submit to their husbands “in every thing” as though they were Christ. “For the husband is the head of the wife.” 5:22-24
    Wives must reverence their husband. 5:33
    Colossians:
    Wives, according to Paul, must submit themselves to their husbands. 3:18
    1 Timothy:
    “Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.” 2:11-12
    Men are superior to women since Adam was made before, and sinned after, Eve. But even though women are inferior to men, they shouldn’t be discouraged because they shall “be saved in childbearing.” 2:14-15
    You should help a widow only if she: has no children or nephews; is desolate, trusts in God, and prays all the time; is not living in pleasure (a widow living in pleasure is the living dead); is over 60 years old; had only one husband; has raised children; has lodged strangers; has washed the saints’ feet; has relieved the afflicted; and has diligently followed every good work. 5:3-10
    Never help a young widow (one under 60 years old). When they wax wanton against Christ, they’ll get married, and be damned to hell for rejecting their faith. Besides, young widows are idle busybodies, wandering around from house to house saying things they shouldn’t say. They should get married and have children (though they’ll be damned to hell for it). Heck, some of them have already turned aside after Satan. 5:11-15
    Titus:
    “Teach the young women to be … obedient to their own husbands.” 2:4-5
    1 Peter:
    Peter orders all wives to be “in subjection” to their husbands. 3:1
    Wives are to use “chaste conversation, coupled with fear.” They are not to braid their hair, wear gold, or put on any “apparel.” They are to do these things in imitation of the “holy” women of the Old testament who were “in subjection to their won husbands: even as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him Lord.” 3:2-6
    In relation to her husband, the wife is “the weaker vessel.” 3:7
    2 Peter:
    Lot, who in Gen 19:8 offers his two virgin daughters to a crowd of angel rapers and later(19:30-38) impregnates them, was a “righteous man.” 2:8
    (In Lot’s defense, his daughters got him drunk and raped him, because apparently they had been taught that letting one’s father’s bloodline die out is a worse crime than rape and incest).
    1John:
    John writes to the men (fathers) only. Women (mothers?) are not important enough to address. 2:13-14
    Revelation:
    Jezebel (whom God had thrown off a wall, trampled by horses, and eaten by dogs (2 Kg 9:33-37) is further reviled by John, saying “that woman Jezebel” taught and seduced God’s “servants to commit fornication.” 2:20
    Jesus will “cast her [Jezebel] into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her.” 2:22
    Only 144,000 celibate men will be saved. (Those who were not “defiled with women.”) 14:1-4

    source: http://skepticsannotatedbible.com/women/long.html

    That’s not even all of it, just the juicier bits of the New Testament. The Old Testament is even more repulsive. And, lest you cry, ‘Out of Context!’ I can personally attest that these passages are pretty much described as they are taught in church.

    55 ..well..i am approaching 54..on June 6th…from my 6660 culturally deviled birth date….

    And i’m really looking forward to my 55th birthday and December 6th of that birthday year..

    As i will be 666 months old…

    And all the sixes will be in alignment for

    whatever…:)

    But i’ve seriously found a way to grow younger in spirit..

    and it even shows in my physical appearance..

    The REAL Yogi way ..is much more mystical than anything in the OFFICIAL New Testament…

    And the health benefits are real and documented as beneficial by Science….

    now..which i kinda like..as i know it’s real..

    as a scientist myself….

    BECOMING ONE WITH THE ALL THAT IS..

    is simply escaping ALL THE ILLUSIONS OF CULTURE…

    I can take that for granted NOW..

    but there was a time…that i was so far lost in the ‘MATRIX’ OF CULTURE..

    That i did not see any way in HELL OUT OF

    SERIOUS HUMAN MADE HELL..

    THAT MOSTLY
    I ADMITTINGLY BROUGHT UPON MYSELF…

    By believing the bullshit of culture….

    Instead of

    finding and listening to my ‘HEART’…
    AND
    SOUL
    AND
    SPIRIT..CONNECTING THE CORE OF WHAT
    i am..
    with IT..
    ALLITIS

    So far away from the ‘left brained..

    prison’..i stayed in.. so much of my life…

    No doubt if you did research and wrote technical papers for the AG dept…

    ya lived a ‘good’ part of ya life in that hemisphere too…

    i played the piano..and created some music before i fell to total human exhaustion…

    but the piano..was about the only ‘right brained’ thing..i did in my life…

    that even came close to making me

    a full
    human being..with more than
    half a brain…:)

    But now i’m actually at least as much ‘right brained’ or more
    than ‘left brained’…

    All the tests that measure this general phenomenon.. bear that out for me too….

    i can even use my left hand to reach for things falling off my back..but it’s not just a practice
    of mind control..

    it is also the intelligence of overall physicality..and movement in general..that i have increased by leaps and bounds..

    in only 7 months or so..simply by exploring it with no holds barred..for over 600 miles now..in just the last 5 months…

    As opposed to almost a complete shut in for over 60 months..ending last July..hardly able to navigate myself to an oatmeal bowl
    in the kitchen cabinet..and having to watch my wife walk..just to coordinate myself to walk at Super Walmart..into the last 5 years..stuck behind a desk at work..virtually attached to the
    screen of a computer…

    That my friend..if i may call ya that..is remarkable…

    and YES DESCRIBED AS AN ACTUAL HUMAN MIRACLE BY MY THERAPIST..WHO did everything she could to spark emotion..
    in my stone cold heart..for over 2 years….

    There is most definitely a ‘HIGHER’ force and energy we can connect to and utilize as human beings through the discipline of mind and body…
    that is far far far away..

    from the common experience of life…

    in our western culture…

    Western cultures..have a long way to go…

    to make their inhabitants..

    fully human…

    there is no doubt in my mind..NOW..

    that some eastern cultures..are far far far…
    ahead in their established historical practices..in mind and body disciplines .. that folks too are falling away from there..
    per the instant gratification..POTENTIAL IN MODERN SCREEN ‘ADDICTION’ ways of life….

    IT’S NOT POSSIBLE TO BE FULLY HUMAN in my opinion..

    unless one moves..at least 25 percent of waking hours….

    if one does…

    i do not see where depression..and bad health…

    could even be…

    much of a problem…

    as long as that movement IS done in free flow…

    like TAI CHI..

    and not a straight line of movement..where the impact on joints..
    is a longer term..destructive… instead of beneficial effort…

    i became an old man fast at 47…to 53…

    but now at 53..am healthier ..more agile..flexible..THAN I WAS AT 29 when i thought at that time..
    my physical abilities peaked….
    and seriously even am observed by others as floating on land when i walk…NOW..

    but no…

    i still am not walking on water ‘yet’ or ‘levitating’….;)

    but if i do..get that ‘good’ at it..(walking)..

    i’ll make sure i have my iPhone5 camera/video capability with me to capture it for evidence…

    and yes..i’ll even share it here first…:)in one of my free verse poetic expressions..
    of real time
    philosophy….;)

    And no i am not @ALL expecting to do th@…

    but..most everything else NEW is most definitely almost unbelievable for me..per the reality that i have now in my
    life…
    so…

    i
    am
    keeping an open mind..to any possibility..OR IMPROBABILITY In life…..

    i WILL NEVER BE LOCKED AND PRISONED IN A ‘LEFT BRAINED’ WAY OF LIFE ‘ONLY’
    AGAIN…
    @least i hope…:)

    To see the bible taken and twisted to such a degree, makes me think LKL is biased.

    Exactly my point. Also note the shift in burden of proof. This is a fairly all-too-common tactic, and I don’t think Christians should have to be feel intimidated just because an opponent knows how to copy/paste the same, tired, old attacks from sources like “Skeptics Annotated” or some such. All I’m asking is for LKL or anyone else to simply pick two verses, and you see the attacking side refuses to do even that.

    It’s a simple test, and it’s quite revealing: The opponent here isn’t really interested in discussing the issue. We simply want to go on thinking we’re right, the other person is wrong, and go on smearing beliefs we disagree with. It’s easier to make it look like Christians are defeated by default, which is the whole point of the exercise. And I honestly don’t care about it that much. I have a life and don’t have time to go through every single out-of-context Biblical quote-mine. If it really meant that much, I’d have my two Bible passages by now and I’d have already shown how the other side is wrong.

    I also happen to genuinely like LKL, and AP knows that. Sometimes I like playing up the comedy of the tension between us. However, my faith is a very deep, personal thing with me and not something I enjoy playing with…not that I haven’t in the past, but I’m not really comfortable with that sort of thing. I can allow myself to be bullied about it by letting someone put me on the defensive when it’s undue, I can make a joke about something I take very seriously, or I can just let it go. We Christians often dislike taking the third option, but we too often fail to recognize that we’re being set up for a trap and that ignoring a pointless discussion is really for the best.

    And as much as you may try to defend this REAL LIFE PRACTICE THAT DOES HARM PEOPLE..AND POTENTIALLY LEAD SOME FOLKS TO SUICIDE FORCE FED THIS CRAP IN CHURCHES LIKE YOURS…

    IT IS ALL TRULY ANTI-CHRIST IN TRUE EFFECT…

    I’ll be patiently waiting for your response..no so called Christian has logically defeated me yet..

    in defending this so called christian assertion…

    OH..and as far as women..go..

    Just the fact that most Christian sects..refuse to allow women to be preachers..and or priests..

    is evidence enough on it’s own that the actual modern practice overall of Christianity.

    IS STILL NOT FAIR TO WOMEN..AND NO..THERE IS NO REAL SUBSTANCE TO BACK THIS UP IN THE NEW TESTAMENT EITHER..

    BUT REAL LIFE IS ALL THAT COUNTS..

    NOT THE BOOK..(THE NEW TESTAMENT)

    IF PEOPLE TWIST IT

    TO HARM FOLKS IN REAL LIFE..

    HARMING FOLKS IN REAL LIFE AND TAKING THEIR FREEDOM AWAY TO EXPRESS THEIR WILL..

    IS THE GREATEST
    MORTAL SIN …
    OF ALL

    OPPRESSION AGAINST ANY OTHER..

    SAME sh** THE REAL JESUS DUDE..AND THE SO CALLED DEVIL WORSHIPPER ALEISTER CROWLEY..AND SELF ADMITTED
    666 BEAST…
    WAS TRYING TO GET ACROSS..

    TO DEAF EARS…

    SOME TIMES THE DEVIL IS
    THE DETAILS…

    AND YES THE REAL DUDE ALEISTER CROWLEY…
    VERY MUCH RESPECTED THE REAL MAN JESUS’ TEACHINGS

    TOO…

    IT’S ONE OF THE BIGGEST REASONS HE DID ALL the ‘unusual’ THINGS HE DID..in real life…

    TO BRING THE FULL TRUTH..OF THE TEACHINGS OF JESUS…
    TO LIGHT AGAIN…

    FOR SIMPLY TRUE WILL UNDER SACRED LOVE…

    FOR
    ALL

    And guess what it’s working..the seed of TRUTH IN ALEISTER CROWLEY’S
    CORE PHILOSOPHY..AS IS THE SAME AS JESUS..and BUDDHA AND MUHAMMAD..

    IS ALL OVER POP CULTURE..THROUGH THE NEW AGE REAL PROPHETS…

    Well, here’s the point. Your insistence that the actual practice of homosexuality is against the ideology of Christianity indicates that you do not practice the true Christian belief of no oppression against others who have natural differences from the norm.

    As much as you may try to defend this real life practice that does harm people, and potentially lead some folks to suicide from being force fed this crap in churches like yours, it is all truly anti-christ in affect!

    So all I am asking you to do is defend your insistence that the moral and ethical argument against the real life natural practice of homosexuality is consistent with the teachings of the real Jesus!

    Oh, and as far as women go: Just the fact that most Christian sects refuse to allow women to be preachers, and or priests,
    is evidence enough on it’s own that the actual modern practice overall of Christianity is still not fair to women. In fact, there is no real substance to back this up in the new testament either! But real life is what really counts, not the book (The New Testament)!
    If people twist it to harm folks in real life, it is even worse!

    Harming folks in real life and taking their freedom away to express their will, is the greatest
    mortal sin of all!

    Oppression of any other, is just plain horrible!

    The Truth…
    It is hard to kill once it truly springs to life!

    Well.. thanks Apple Clown..i am pleased with your input…

    But i am not expecting an answer for this..question..anymore than someone who might try to prove evolution does not exist..and the earth was created 6 thousand years ago….

    Homosexuality is as much a part of nature…as evolution…and a 14.8 billion year old earth…

    There is an autism spectrum..a gender spectrum..and yes a friggin..sexual orientation..spectrum as well…

    While some folks may lean this way or that way.. a little bit of this or that..as far as stereotyped feminine and masculine characteristics..and sexual orientation..
    modern science most definitely can attribute at least 20% of homosexuality as determined by biology…

    So.. in other words.. ‘GOD’ don’t create something in human nature..and then damn it to hell..that is just ridiculous..not any less
    than the assertion that the friggin earth is only 6,000 years old….

    But again the main point…

    And from a personal perspective..while i am straight as an ARROW..and completely comfortable in my balance of masculinity
    and femininity per my brain..and with an extremely masculine looking body..overall at 53…

    I was in that place growing..up with a softer appearance..and constantly being accused of being homosexual..based on my..
    genial nature…and over literally friggin happy to be alive..if ya wanna describe that as literally gay ..like gay happy…and know what that feels
    like to be oppressed simply for who you are as a human being…

    If i ever saw a person doing that to someone in real life..
    they would get to hear from me..loud and clear in person..and trust me i ain’t a person that someone wants to see..angry…and yes
    been there done that..and even recently in my church when a deacon tried to do this in a little rant about homosexual folks not being
    able to raise kids..per biological capacity…and i ‘won’ that one easy…as everyone else kept their mouth shut except for me….and the priest….

    There is really not much of anything in life that angers me..but when i see someone oppressed..with the full sociological..anthropological..psychological..and yes health science perspective of just how dangerous it can be to oppress a young person ..like they do not deserved to live ..just based on their human nature…
    There is fire comes out of my eyes..and nah i don’t have to even say something..to overpower someone with my gaze….and i sure as hell ain’t got to get into any fight..as there are some human energies..that are more powerful..than even the strength of my muscles..and yes..

    more powerful than an atomic bomb..and i am dead serious about that….and THAT IS part of that stuff the real Jesus dude was talking about….

    SACRED LOVE.. THE MOST POWERFUL ENERGY..
    IN THE LIVING UNIVERSE….
    AND NO IT’S NOT ALWAYS..
    POSITIVE..PER THE RECIPIENT OF IT..
    WHEN THERE IS TRUE GUILT OF HARMING OTHER FOLKS…

    yeah…i can turn the other cheek all day long when folks attempt to be my enemy..and call ’em friend and all of that and mean it..

    But when it comes..to oppressing someone else..hell no…!

    altruism..true altruism..and that Sacred Love thingy..kicks.. in…:)

    why..

    there have been no more world wars to date…

    AND those horrifying weapons of death over Japan….that

    for the threat of mutual annihilation…

    Sad that humans are that tribal IN TRUE EFFECT…to inflict this type of pain on the ‘others’..

    but it is
    what it

    Doctor Killed During Abortion Protest
    By William Booth
    Washington Post Staff Writer
    Thursday, March 11, 1993; Page A01

    PENSACOLA, FLA., MARCH 10 — A doctor was shot to death outside his abortion clinic here today when a man who prayed for the physician’s soul stepped forward from a group of antiabortion protesters and opened fire, according to police and witnesses.

    David Gunn, 47, was shot three times in the back after he got out of his car at the Pensacola Women’s Medical Services clinic, according to Pensacola police. He died during surgery at a local hospital.

    Looking again at that bit about Jesus and the Samaritan woman

    John 4 wrote:

    The Pharisees heard that Jesus was winning and baptizing more disciples than John. Actually, Jesus himself did not baptize anyone; only his disciples did. So when Jesus heard what was being said, he left Judea and went back to Galilee; on his way there he had to go through Samaria.

    In Samaria he came to a town named Sychar, which was not far from the field that Jacob had given to his son Joseph. Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired out by the trip, sat down by the well. It was about noon.

    A Samaritan woman came to draw some water, and Jesus said to her, “Give me a drink of water.” ( His disciples had gone into town to buy food.)

    The woman answered, “You are a Jew, and I am a Samaritan—so how can you ask me for a drink?” (Jews will not use the same cups and bowls that Samaritans use.)

    Jesus answered, “If you only knew what God gives and who it is that is asking you for a drink, you would ask him, and he would give you life-giving water.”

    “Sir,” the woman said, “you don’t have a bucket, and the well is deep. Where would you get that life-giving water? It was our ancestor Jacob who gave us this well; he and his children and his flocks all drank from it. You don’t claim to be greater than Jacob, do you?”

    Jesus answered, “Those who drink this water will get thirsty again, but those who drink the water that I will give them will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give them will become in them a spring which will provide them with life-giving water and give them eternal life.”

    “Sir,” the woman said, “give me that water! Then I will never be thirsty again, nor will I have to come here to draw water.”

    “Go and call your husband,” Jesus told her, “and come back.”

    “I don’t have a husband,” she answered.

    Jesus replied, “You are right when you say you don’t have a husband. You have been married to five men, and the man you live with now is not really your husband. You have told me the truth.”

    “I see you are a prophet, sir,” the woman said. “My Samaritan ancestors worshiped God on this mountain, but you Jews say that Jerusalem is the place where we should worship God.”

    Jesus said to her, “Believe me, woman, the time will come when people will not worship the Father either on this mountain or in Jerusalem. You Samaritans do not really know whom you worship; but we Jews know whom we worship, because it is from the Jews that salvation comes. But the time is coming and is already here, when by the power of God’s Spirit people will worship the Father as he really is, offering him the true worship that he wants. God is Spirit, and only by the power of his Spirit can people worship him as he really is.”

    The woman said to him, “I know that the Messiah will come, and when he comes, he will tell us everything.”

    Jesus answered, “I am he, I who am talking with you.”

    At that moment Jesus’ disciples returned, and they were greatly surprised to find him talking with a woman. But none of them said to her, “What do you want?” or asked him, “Why are you talking with her?”

    Then the woman left her water jar, went back to the town, and said to the people there, “Come and see the man who told me everything I have ever done. Could he be the Messiah?” So they left the town and went to Jesus….

    …Many of the Samaritans in that town believed in Jesus because the woman had said, “He told me everything I have ever done.” So when the Samaritans came to him, they begged him to stay with them, and Jesus stayed there two days.

    Many more believed because of his message, and they told the woman, “We believe now, not because of what you said, but because we ourselves have heard him, and we know that he really is the Savior of the world.”

    I think that what is really going on here is another swipe at the Jews. Something like the Good Samaritan story of Luke. Through much of John, the Jews are presented as evil, and as responsible for the death of Jesus. (At least the Pharisees, who were basically the only Jews left in the Roman Empire, after the Roman war, and when John was written). In this passage, the Samaritans appear to be basically good people who were easy converts to Christianity.

    During the first century, there was quite a lot of animosity between the Jews and the Samaritans. After the Roman War, when the region was depopulated of Jews, this animosity was moot. But, still useful to drive home the message: “See? Even the Samaritans are better than the Jews!”

    Matthew and Mark have Jesus saying: “No divorce! Unless she commits adultery!” John doesn’t get into that. So, if some of the Samaritan woman’s previous husbands had divorced her, then it would seem that Jesus was cool with that. Heck, John’s Jesus was even cool with this woman living with a man with whom she wasn’t married, after five husbands. 8)

    and he see’s them for WHO they are not what they are.

    Are there other similarities?

    This is one of my favorite of all time movies..and i think in a way..Forrest could even be part of at least a broader autism phenotype..per his characteristics..in the movie..

    More than anything else Forrest did not show personal judgement against other folks..and he treated all folks like his neighbor..loving them like his mother..his dearest mother…

    And he was never concerned with worldly riches..and lived in the heaven of the moment..
    never asking why or needlessly worrying about life…

    No doubt in my mind..that this was part of the writer’s intention..in authoring this story…

    The only thing that Forrest didn’t do..is get people calling him GOD..get a virgin birth..get nailed to a cross..or walking on water…

    But he made a huge difference in the real lives of folks..in a healing manner..

    whether it was the gift of insights..or helping his neighbor…and caring more about them..
    than his life alone..

    He was a true hero..and that is how at least some folks in the movie..described him..as such…

    and that is probably how at least some people looked at the real man Jesus..
    while he was alive…2:)

    Also of note to me..is the ‘Dude’ in the ‘Big Lebowski’ movie..with more direct references..in the actual movie..to the ‘dude abides’….and living separate from the ‘sinners’….

    And in the newest movie Superman..the Man of Steele..there seem to me more indirect references..in this movie than any of the older big screen movies…

    Anyway..movies worth watching..
    for folks in movies..who truly live
    life…in the heaven of NOw..

    The woman can go ahead and preach, as long as she is wearing a hat.

    AngelRho wrote:

    Has nothing to do with it. I don’t imagine attitudes among classes have really changed much in the past few thousand years, and dress conventions seem to always have been part of the dialogue. I don’t think we can know for certain what practice this refers to, but there are a couple of possibilities. First, women of higher social standing might have had elaborate headdresses or some kind of ornament that indicated who they were…it was basically a display of wealth. Since equality among believers is emphasized, it would have been appropriate for wealthy women to wear some kind of head covering in order to subdue flashy hair ornaments that others would have found distracting or demoralizing. Another possibility might have had to do with the association of certain types of headwear with temple prostitution or some other pagan practice. Even if it were an innocent practice, outsiders might have found it misleading, indicating perhaps tacit approval of other pagan practices. I forget where it’s written, but there is something to the effect that a woman should cut her hair if she’s serving under specific circumstances, and I think it’s related to that.

    ArrantPariah wrote:

    AngelRho wrote:

    Again, talking about completely different things here. And I already addressed this. Anyone who wishes to learn should keep quiet and listen to instruction. I mean, this apparently applies equally to men as well as women, which leads me to wonder what was going on that Paul felt the need to emphasize its relevance to women.

    is the true
    path
    to
    knowledge..

    to silence..is the
    path of censorship…
    and stuff like

    the holocaust…
    crucifixions..and other stuff like that…

    Please..women were told to wear headdresses..to cover their sexy hair..
    thereby lessening the chance..that any other man
    would get in their
    pants…

    Same sh** that still goes on in Muslim countries..

    and yes..

    even a few ‘broads’..that are still repressed..like this..
    in my Catholic..church..currently..

    living in the dark ages..
    and all of that..covered up and such…like a dark full bodied condom…

    So so..so much..
    just..
    common sense…

    It shouldn’t really take a ‘rocket scientist’ to figure this out..
    and perhaps that is usually because..
    ‘they’ don’t have as ‘much’
    common sense as ‘most’
    other
    folks…

    Kraichgauer so you think that an organisation/belief which has as its founding writings forgeries demanding the ‘truth’, which deliberately lied and conspired to defeat its Orthodox jewish detractors to the point of pograms. Which whilst discarding the ancient jewish laws still maintains them when it suits, especially the really nasty vindictive stuff, which is homophobic, which does denigrate women, which does promote and support war, which does prevent advances in medicine, which does attempt to subvert the teaching of facts, as ok because it is not as bad as it used to be, and it does after all, do some good?

    You seem to attribute a kind of blood price to christianity, ie there is a price to pay for the good it does. Well I am sorry but I think the blood price is far too high.

    But we digress, the point of me bringing up anti semitism in the first place was to counter Aghod’s claim that why should it matter that much in the gospels have dubious/forged authorship. After all, whoever wrote them the gospels have never hurt anyone. To paraphrase ‘its commonsense dude’. This is a position held from ignorance, it fails to see the harm done by writers claiming to be Paul, Peter, Nicodemus etc. These authors wrote in a time of turmoil and used the names of respected authors to get their perspective heard and the result has been untold misery.

    The christians you rail against are not aberrant, they are a product of the religion itself. What do you expect from a collection of random stories, written by ghost authors who, faking their identity attack and contradict each other. Remember the start of this part of the discussion where you were surprised to learn that there was any dispute over the authorship of the Pauline letters? Guess you need to do some reading and understand the origins of your religion.

    Well..i’m glad to here you are open to the idea of differences..among human beings like this…

    As to what religion i am part of…i go to the Catholic church.. the one i was raised in..every Sunday morning..attend southern baptist gospel singings regularly with my wife and her friend…but adhere to no religious structured dogma in life..at all..

    I consider myself a part of the human race..that is connected with the GOD that is ALL..

    I’m comfortable in any church as a visit..although i would not go to any church regularly that openly promoted any oppression toward any natural segment of society..other religions..sexual orientations or whatever..

    Seriously the way i connect with GOD the best..is through an elaborate..free style method of dance walking up to 20 miles a day..that allows me the similar type of oneness and connection with Universal love that Yogi’s experience…

    And i use musicK in all fashion..for resonances..of chakra balance..with the movement as one…and i love to sing in church..in this same way of Universal connection…

    So in effect..my religion moreover than anything else..is musicK and dance..

    as a way of life..

    And i make everything..and yes i do mean everything in life sacred..in the NOW
    Even the disagreements..that i have with diverse individuals..on almost anything…

    The greatest thing in the world to me..is the literal balance of life..nature..and overall GOD…

    Every step for me..in any type of movement..or song…is a sacred balance for that

    way…

    And while many people here would pooh pooh..it as simply coincidence…and random chance…

    i do have personal proof…that GOD communicates with me and others..through what JUNG described as Synchronicity..for as close to science as that currently gets…which i do believe is natural..but just beyond the current purview of science…

    But again..my communication with GOD is movement..musick and song…

    It’s a very cozy relationship in the now..WITH GOD…
    Literally in
    deed…

    AND REQUIRES ABSOLUTELY NO so called intellectual KNOWLEDGE..
    and very little abstract language…
    JUST THE FLOW..OF BEING AS ONE
    WITH ALLITIS…

    BUT TO GET THERE..AT LEAST FOR
    ME.. WAS
    IN PART..

    LITERALLY HELL…TRUE HUMAN HELL…

    i plan on staying in that other place in the NOW..forevermore..NOW…

    GOD willing…
    with my
    WILL…

    Oh, almost forgot…

    I feel much the same way about music. The ironic thing is discordant music communicates to me more so than conventional harmonies, so I spend a lot of time composing that kind of music. I’m taking more of a spectral approach with my own compositions, i.e. textural/timbral considerations take a higher priority than melody/harmony/rhythm. Each individual large-scale work I’m doing seems to be lasting around 2 hours, and it’s intended to be more of a meditative activity than anything else.

    I’m too uncomfortable in my own skin to dance. But music…yeah… 8)

    IF it’s a Mithraic import, which I kinda doubt, but whatever… Agreed there’s no basis in Judaism, but there need not be. Hebrew tradition is for the Hebrews. I’m not a Jew, and every Jew I ever knew discouraged me from converting, stating that a Gentile converting to Judaism isn’t necessary and might be more trouble than it’s worth. The Laws of Noah are sufficient for righteousness for Gentiles. I don’t find a cross-cultural tradition for communion to be problematic at all.

    Well, drinking blood isn’t exactly consistent with keeping kosher.

    Anyway, Paul experienced some sort of a fantastic vision involving Jesus, and was convinced that Jesus was going to come back at any moment, to cart his followers off to Heaven, or some such thing. Paul saw it as his responsibility to persuade as many people as possible that they should join him and Jesus in Heaven. So, he probably didn’t see much point in quibbling too much over trivialities.

    As Jesus said

    I don’t know about the Samaritan mountain, but Jews did stop worshipping in Jerusalem, and their worship services were never the same. No more barbecues. Some Christians might take this to signify that God wants to be worshipped in their churches now. But, Paul pointed out

    There is just no reference point in hell to understand.
    what heaven ..is…

    And it dam sure ain’t an orgasm..all by itself..that ain’t nothing in comparison..
    to the heaven of the bliss of sacred love..but…

    again..in only my personal experience..and MUCH FULLER REALITY NOW..THAN JUST 7 MONTHS AGO..IN TRUE Human hell…but instead now…
    now…in the bliss of heaven..instead of that abyss called

    @ 91 I don’t really see why are you getting into such a flap about me questioning the veracity of the NT authorship? You are behaving like a barrister who has just been presented with evidence without prior notice.

    Ehrman is hardly the only theologian to raise these issues, he is but a long line of biblical scholars who have questioned the authorship of some of the canonical texts in the bible. You berating me for raising the spectre of biblical forgery as if it is the perspective of a select, marginalised few, is really disingenuous. I have not discussed his views on Jesus, or his issue with god and suffering, nor have I talked about the Jesus seminar of which, in my reading of him so far, he has only criticised. I have simply put up the widely held view that many of the canonical stories in the NT are of dubious /forged authorship.

    I did this in response to Aghogdays statement that nothing bad has come from the gospels. I submit that there was a concerted effort by the Christians during the disputes between the jews and the Christians to have all of the Jews blamed for the death of Christ, and that this claim of deicide has led to many hundreds of thousands of deaths. The gospels of Mathew and Luke are most definitely anti-semitic, the broader question is why and on whose authority were they written.

    From what I understand there is no historical evidence to back up the claims of the christians that Pilot tried to save the life of Jesus and that the gave way to placate the a jewish backlash. So the question why? arises. This is fairly easy, the charge of deicide and the idea that god had forsaken the jews for this, helped give Christianity the edge it needed. As to the authorship of these texts as you know quite well, 91, most biblical scholars agree that the claimed authorship of the accounts of Jesus’ trial are forged or at the very least questionable. Does the authorship matter? of course it does. If I, Dent, claimed Pilate was aghast at the demands of the jews and gave way only to prevent a riot, who will give it credence, if on the other hand I state that I am writing as an apostle or a close companion then my testament gains far greater credibility.

    aghogday:

    Woah..dude..you are putting words in my mouth here..stating that i stated “nothing bad has come from the gospels.”

    I never said anything like that on this website..in fact i have over and over again..stated that there was crap added in with the New Testament..that one must discern out of it..and that yes people have died and committed suicide.. as a cost of the crap in the New Testament..and the way it is interpreted…as well as the Old Testament MOREOVER…

    If i stated IT you could quote IT but NO..i DO have close to a photographic memory..and hell no i ain’t never said this anywhere.. not here on this site or anywhere else…AND YAH..that’s pretty impressive (the photographic memory and all of that) considering i’ve written about literally 5 million words on this website..in the last 3 years or so..if ya care to count
    em..

    i am able to discern the crap out of the new testament since i was a small child..

    It’s almost like i was a true author of it..or some METAPHOR..like that…

    The greatest thing about folks with intellectual disabilities is they often live a life of unconditional love..not sullied by abstract language ..collective intelligence..that comes from the illusions that culture brings…

    They often share this love freely..impacting the life of others..for the rest of their lives..knowing..that yes love does actually exist unconditionally somewhere at least..

    But for those who are cold of heart or soul…

    They can often cannot see this..

    So for them..the intellectually disabled may seem worthless..

    Never knowing that the true secret of the greatest riches of all..

    Is the sacred love..that many folks with intellectual disabilities..
    live
    their entire life….and share with others..as
    well…improving their life and love..in a priceless way..

    Dude or dudette..whatever may be the gender..39% of autistic folks have an intellectual disability..

    this ain’t the place to make remarks like this about folks with intellectual disability..

    of course it is offensive..no matter what you say you intend..

    but i for one will not overlook it..

    while you attempt to save a cow..
    for lunch…

    ya missing something..bigger than beef..perhaps…
    it seems….

    or IQ..the kind that is not measured on standard tests…

    The greatest IQ of all is IN emotional intelligence..

    often quite high among folks..who score low
    on them..culturally created IQ tests….

    Never dismiss love..if ya will…
    as unproductive..biggest mistake..ever..made..
    by any human being.. and the most unintelligent one..
    ever..
    for sure..2

    And yes it is possible to love and respect a domesticated animal for food..
    and kill it and eat for food as well..

    The American Indians did this for tens of thousands of years..

    And so do some farmers..and hunters still….

    It’s just a matter of respect..AND SACRED NATURAL LOVE OF ALL OF NATURE…THE HARD PARTS AND THE EASIER PARTS…

    And understanding THE ALL of nature..THE WAY IT REALLY IS..and not trying to make it into
    a contrived CULTURAL illusion….by silly little human ants…

    but on the other hand..the truth is..people who are of so called higher IQ’s on standard testing..also have higher levels of anxiety..suicide..and overall problems in life that are emotional related as opposed…

    ..to folks who are considered intellectually disabled..who do not meet the standard of typical western culture IQ tests..

    The issue really is ..abstract language..is a construct of collective intelligence and culture…

    Some folks do better than other folks..acquiring the ability to grasp abstract concepts..

    Other folks do not..therefore they don’t do as well on standard intelligence testing..

    However..here’s the thing…that maybe you didn’t get in my statement..and an overall truth about social animals in general..

    They connect to each other ..they cooperate..they support each other…for overall survival…

    Just because someone scores low on an standardized intelligence test..

    Does not mean a human like this cannot be productive in sharing the greatest human asset of all..EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE..and enhancing it and DEMONSTRATING IT..for the survival of the species as a whole..and the fact that our domesticated dogs and cats..do indeed serve the similar purpose..in an inter-species dependent support system…to allow both species a better chance to survive with emotional support from both species..put animals on A SIMILAR level of importance as human beings..in this real REQUIRED ABILITY IN LIFE ..OVERALL..TO SURVIVE..

    But this is part of emotional intelligence..TO EVEN UNDERSTAND THIS….

    In reality..many folks on this site..are disabled in emotional intelligence..and cannot provide this type of support to their fellow human beings..THAT IS .. COGNITIVE EMPATHY .. ACTUALLY DEMONSTRATED….FOR ANOTHER PERSON..

    IF A DOG GROOMS ANOTHER DOG…

    OR A MONKEY PICKS THE NITS OFF ANOTHER MONKEY..

    THEY ARE MORE PRODUCTIVE IN EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE..

    THAN SOME HUMANS WITH 140 TO 160 IQ’S…THAT HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO DEMONSTRATE EMPATHY
    FOR THEIR FELLOW HUMAN BEINGS..OR JUST DON’T HAVE THE DESIRE OR INSTINCTUAL DRIVE TO DO IT..AS A BUILT IN NORMAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE…

    THIS TYPE OF DEMONSTRATION OF EMPATHY IS NECESSARY FOR ANY SOCIAL ANIMAL SPECIES TO SURVIVE..OVERALL…

    AND INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY..DOES NOT MEAN A PERSON IS HANDICAPPED IN THIS AREA AT ALL..IN FACT THEIR DEFICITS IN STANDARD TESTING OF IQ..MAY ACTUALLY ACCENTUATE THEIR ABILITY TO
    BETTER FOCUS ON EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE KNOWLEDGE ..SKILLS..AND ABILITIES..

    TO BETTER HELP THE SPECIES FOR OVERALL SURVIVAL..PER THE MOST BASIC OF ALL HUMAN NEEDS..

    THE DEMONSTRATION OF EMPATHY…

    Many Autistic folks have no clue why this is so important…

    Ergo..Emotional intelligence disability..EVERY BIT AS SERIOUS A HANDICAP ..

    AS WHAT MOST PEOPLE REFER TO AS INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY…

    AND part of WHY AUTISM IS CONSIDERED A LEGAL DISABILITY..

    THE INABILITY TO PROPERLY DEMONSTRATE EMPATHY FOR OTHER FOLKS IN EVERY DAY LIFE…

    THROUGH RECIPROCAL SOCIAL COMMUNICATION.

    AND to be clear i do not assume you understand this prior to my statement here…

    Lots of folks do not..understand just how important it is to..actually practice skills in ACTUALLY DEMONSTRATING EMPATHY FOR OTHER FOLKS THROUGH RECIPROCAL SOCIAL COMMUNICATION…

    THE BRAIN IS AN INCREDIBLE neuroplastic and epigenetic tool..for change..if adequately challenged for adaptation…

    but use or lose it applies..as in most area of life…

    Live a life in mechanical cognition..opposed to social cognition.. and the social cognition aspect of life can wither a way…

    Live a life in social cognition..opposed to mechanical cognition..and the mechanical cognition aspect of life can wither a way..

    A balance IS best..and realistically indicative of the best chance..at success in life…in our extremely complex culture…

    Science now indicates that there are these two pathways of the brain..one for social cognition..otherwise known as cognitive empathy and the ability to demonstrate empathy for other human beings…

    And one for mechanical cognition..the intelligence of solving algebra problems..and building pizzas…

    When one pathway is exercised in the brain..the other is repressed…

    So folks who keep their ‘nose stuck in facts’ MOST all their life..

    Really just don’t have the opportunity..to FULLY become a human being..

    It’s simple math really…or common sense…

    However..it takes common sense to understand it..
    And often folks lacking in social cognition..strengths..and in effect emotionally ‘slow’ or ‘retarded’ if one wants to use that word some folks find offensive…don’t have the common sense..also known as cognitive empathy to understand this…

    so it can be a vicious cycle without lots of remediated effort..like one of those ‘slow classes’ for math in school…

    To learn to be a human being…

    And hell no..i know it is not easy…

    It took me a full five decades..to become a full human being..

    Sure i was always at the top of my class at school..and considered and called superman at work..for all my mechanical cognition abilities in the analyses and solution of complex problems…

    But for all practical intents and purposes…for a long time…

    i was emotionally ‘retarded’..per that most important type of intelligence..the kind that many so called intellectually disabled folks excel in…

    Emotional intelligence..the most important type of intelligence..for any social animal..
    human
    monkey
    or
    dog…for overall survival as a social animal..in whatever group they are considered part of….

    And yes .. there are some autistic folks on this site..that some folks might recognize as having low IQ’s or disability..but their ability to demonstrate empathy FOR other FOLKS..is enhanced and evidenced.. even in the words they use on this site…

    As opposed to SOME OF the so called..really ‘smart’ folks…

    NO.. ‘they’ are not as smart as they ‘THINK’..

    THE ‘HEART’ SPEAKS TOO..

    BUT RARELY IN COMPLEX LANGUAGE…WITH FACTS ONLY…

    IN FACT .. IT’S MOSTLY SPOKEN NON-VERBALLY .. IN THE TYPE OF COMMUNICATION ABILITIES THAT COMPRISE ABOUT 93% OF TOTAL HUMAN RECIPROCAL SOCIAL COMMUNICATION…
    AND EVEN MORE FOR ANIMALS..AS A TOTAL PERCENTAGE…

    NON-VERBAL COMMUNICATION..AN ESSENTIAL AND REQUIRED PART OF HUMAN OVERALL INTELLIGENCE..TO GAIN SUCCESS AS A SOCIAL ANIMAL..WHICH DOES MEAN LIFE-LONG SURVIVAL..

    THE CORE ISSUE CONSIDERED AS A DEFICIT IN AUTISM…A REAL TOTAL INTELLIGENCE..DISABILITY.

    AND YES..USE IT OR LOSE IT APPLIES..HERE..TOO…

    SIT IN FRONT OF ANY ELECTRONIC SCREEN MOST OF THE DAY.. FIXATED ON A POINT ON A SCREEN..TWO TO TWELVE FEET AWAY…

    AND THE INTELLIGENCE OF MOVEMENT SUFFERS GREATLY…
    INCLUDING ANY POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE REAL LIFE FLESH AND BLOOD ABILITY

    FOR NON-VERBAL COMMUNICATION..THE MOST IMPORTANT SOCIAL ANIMAL..INCLUDING HUMAN SOCIAL ANIMAL INTELLIGENCE OF ALL .. FOR OVERALL
    SURVIVAL..ACROSS THE LIFE SPAN..OF
    TRUEST REALITY.. LIFE IN GENERAL.. As a SOCIAL ANIMAL.

    AND YES.. LOTS OF SO CALLED INTELLECTUALLY DISABLED FOLKS..
    EXCEL IN THIS GREATER AREA OF INTELLIGENCE.. TOO..
    THAT STANDARD IQ TESTS DO NOT EVEN TOUCH..

    THE INTELLIGENCE OF MOVEMENT..
    AND OVERALL
    EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE..AS WELL…
    for a MORE totalLY balanced human being…

    THOUGHTS ON “A SPLENDID GIGGLE”

    katiemiafredericksaid:21 February, 2014 at 7:45 am

    Haha..laughter is great..i developed an amazing ability to help other folks laugh..walking in reverse…in a butterflyTAI CHI style of walk..dance..
    Retired at 53 ..my wife loves to shop..but not me at all..
    I do my butterfly walk..dance..and have logged about 700 miles in local stores..on my Nike GPS sports watch..since about September..2013…
    And one thing for sure..if there is no purpose in my life..other than one..it is making other folks laugh..it’s not often..that a 222Lb middle aged LAW enforcement looking guy..is seen dancing out in public stores..like a butterfly on land..
    Amazing the places and paths that GOD can take us..
    sooner or later
    on the path
    of
    life..:)
    There was a time before last September that i was almost a complete shut in..as a person with the worst pain known to mankind// type 2 trigeminal neuralgia..and during that time..for 60 months since March of 2008 pain took almost all emotions away..all that was left was pain..and not even a memory of a laugh..or what it felt like to smile…
    The pain went away..finally last July..
    And so now i pay that forward..
    with laughter
    for all….:)
    And yes..there is nothing that makes me giggle more..than knowing..
    i brought laughter to
    someone
    else…
    Sorry.. if that was a long comment..but during that 60 months ..i developed the uncanny ability to see the souls of others in words..and that bright white light..
    exists..here..so i feel comfortable..spreading some light here..:)and maybe a
    laugh or 2..imagining someone even doing that..dance walking..in
    real
    life…everywhere they go….on a path of loving life…
