Mitropolitul Olteniei vs restaurante zgomotoase



Înaltpreasfinţitul Irineu, mitropolitul Olteniei vrea să închidă toate restaurantele din zona Arhiepiescopiei Craiova. Asta pentru că nu poate să doarmă din cauza muzicii. Înalpreasfinţitul a sunat personal în mai multe rânduri la 112 ca să cheme poliţia.


Si pe mine ma deranjeaza clopotele si slujbele publice din piete. Merita sa sun la politie? Cred ca nu, pentru ca nu am privilegiul ilegitim pe care-l are BOR.


Patronii localurilor spun că sunt terorizaţi de mitropolit, care a început să le facă plângeri de la jumătatea lunii iulie. Ei spun că deşi locuieşte de trei ani în aceeaşi clădire, până acum o lună nu l-a deranjat niciodată muzica.



"terorizati de mitropolit"

priceless

Iar argumentul lor e foarte bun.


Iniţial a depus personal plângeri la instituţiile care măsoară nivelul decibelilor. Ulterior a ajuns chiar să sune la 112 să reclame faptul că în dormitorul său se aude muzica prea tare.


Si? De ce nu se roaga pentru liniste in loc sa piarda timpul politistilor? Si in Craiova chiar e nevoie de politie atenta la crime serioase...


Proprietarul unuia dintre localuri a fost amendat deja în nenumărate rânduri şi acum riscă să i se suspende activitatea. Asta în ciuda faptului că în urma măsurătorilor efectuate de DSP şi Garda de Mediu s-a stabilit că se încadrează în nivelul decibelilor admişi de lege.


Deci legile se suspenda cand e vorba de urechile prea sfinte ale mitropolitului? Sper ca o sa dea in judecata autoritatile daca licenta e suspendata.

Niciodata nu am inteles de ce oamenii simt bucurie cand isi imagineaza ca fac parte dintr-o turma speciala si au un pastor special; orice s-ar intampla, toate oile ajung sa fie mulse, tunse, macelarite, abuzate, vandute, cu puii furati...

BAC 2011, sesiunea de toamnă: succes prin rugăciuni pentru o tânără

Sesiunea de BAC ce a început săptămâna aceasta este o sursă de speranţe puternice pentru elevii care au eşuat lunile trecute când, într-o surpriză apocaliptică, legiuni de demoni încarnaţi în dispozitive de filmat au ocupat sălile de examen din majoritatea centrelor.

După cum ştiu toţi românii, intimitatea, lejeritatea, subiectele rezolvate prin asistare şi obscuritatea în timpul examenelor din sistemul educaţional este un drept divin acordat poporului odata cu fondarea Bisericii Ortodoxe Române.

Discutie cu Howard Bloom (TLP)




Howard Bloom has been called "next in a lineage of seminal thinkers that includes Newton, Darwin, Einstein, Freud, and Buckminster Fuller" by Britain's Channel4 TV.

His books include

The Lucifer Principle: A Scientific Expedition Into the Forces of History ("mesmerizing"—The Washington Post),

Global Brain: The Evolution of Mass Mind from the Big Bang to the 21st Century ("reassuring and sobering"—The New Yorker)

The Genius of the Beast: A Radical Re-Vision of Capitalism ("an extraordinary book, exhilaratingly-written and masterfully-researched. I couldn't put it down." James Burke).

Bloom has founded three international scientific groups: the Group Selection Squad (1995), which fought to gain acceptance for the concept of group selection in evolutionary biology;

The International Paleopsychology Project (1997), which worked to create a new multi-disciplinary synthesis between cosmology, paleontology, evolutionary biology, and history; and The Space Development Steering Committee (2007), an organization that includes astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Edgar Mitchell and members from NASA, the National Science Foundation and the Department of Defense. From 1968 to 1988, Bloom did fieldwork in the world of corporations, mass media, and popular culture. As the founder and CEO first of Cloud Studio, Inc., then of The Howard Bloom Organization, Ltd., Bloom worked with companies like Sony, NBC-TV, CBS, Warner Brothers, Paramount Pictures, EMI, ABC, Gulf and Western, MCA/Universal, Mannesmann, Polygram, Coca Cola, Pepsi Cola, and Disney. Bloom helped establish or sustain the careers of Prince, Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, Bette Midler, Queen, Kiss, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Billy Joel, Billy Idol, Peter Gabriel, David Byrne, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Run DMC and over a hundred others. He advised the strategists putting together a new venture called MTV, he was featured on the cover of Art Direction Magazine, and he was profiled in New York Magazine, which called him the most thorough and efficient publicist in his field. Delta Airlines in-flight magazine went further and called him one of the most powerful people in pop publicity.

No one realized he was a scientist in disguise. Bloom's writings have appeared in The Washington Post, Wired, Knight-Ridder's Financial News Service, The Village Voice, The Wall Street Journal, Cosmopolitan, Omni Magazine, New Ideas in Psychology, The Independent Scholar, Entelechy—Mind and Culture, Across Species Comparisons and Psychopathology, PhysicaPlus, ArXiv.org and in two book series: Research in Biopolitics and the Disinformation Company's series of three books: You Are Being Lied To, Everything You Know is Wrong, and Abuse Your Illusions

The Amazing Atheist - o critica a capitalismului "free market"


O deconstructie clara si pe ton moderat a capitalismului "free market" aka neoliberalism aka libertarianism (unul din sensuri).





P.S. Daca va intrebati ce cauta asta aici am sa va spun: eu consider ca capitalismul "free market" este o ideologie, una destul de religioasa, si ca sceptic si adept la rationalismului, simt nevoia sa o "demolez", dar daca au facut-o deja altii, nu are mult rost sa repet. Rezum, in schimb:



Credinciosii si preotii acestei religii cred intr-un paradis economic ce se poate crea pe Pamant prin aplicarea dogmei neoliberale ce consta in acordarea de statut suprem pentru libertatile persoanelor cu bani (suprem > orice lege), sacralizarea si veneratia "proprietatii" (nu doar ca teren ci ca avere, titluri si alte hartii colorate) si in transformarea omului intr-o fiinta egoista si lacoma, reducandu-l la nivelul de functionare a creierului reptilian (toti avem aceste structuri in cap).

Pacatosii sunt oameni care nu au avere sau care nu au destul egoism cat sa faca orice pentru avere.

Aici se intersecteaza cu o latura din crestinism care zice ca oamenii bogati sunt asa pentru ca au fost binecuvantati de Dumnezeu, iar oamenii saraci sunt asa pentru ca au fost blestemati de Dumnezeu ( "evanghelia prosperitatii" ), si oricine vrea sa schimbe situatia este diavol, satana, anti-crestin, anti-capitalist etc. Aceasta doctrina este intalnita frecvent in culturile unde se gaseste feudalism (ex. in India, unde sunt caste; in Tibet, unde a existat feudalism pe baza de buddism... )

Credinciosii acestei religii tind sa creada intr-o alta ideologie lipsita de tangenta cu realitatea, "meritocratia" - pe scurt: "eu am avut succes (politic, economic) pentru ca merit sa am succes, datorita talentelor, eforturilor si abilitatilor mele"... o viziune fantastic de ingusta asupra structurilor sociale in care traim, in special pentru ca ignora total caracterul deterministic al realitatii, societatii si gandirii umane.

Un voluntar papal e suspect de terorism chimic in Spania - unde se au loc proteste fata de vizita papala


Traduc o stire de la AP.


Un student la chimie ce lucra ca voluntar la vizita Papei in Madrid a fost arestat sub suspiciunea ca planuia un atac cu gaze impotriva oamenilor care protestau vizita pontifului.

Benedict XVI incepe o vizita de 4 zile azi, marcand Ziua Mondiala a Tineretului. Mii de protestatari s-au organizat impotriva vizitei sale incepand de ieri seara, in piata centrala a Madridului (Sol), unde s-au tinut si proteste impotriva guvernului in lunile trecute.


Un oficial de la politie a spus ca suspectatul a fost arestat marti in Madrid si ca e un student mexican cu specializare in chimie organica. Mai multe detalii nu au fost publicate.

Un oficial de la comitetul de organizare al vizitei papale a spus ca mexicanul e un voluntar ce ajuta la controlarea fluxului masiv de oameni ce se aduna in Madrid. Aprox. 30 000 de oameni din lume participa la organizarea evenimentului, iar 10 000 de politisti vor asigura paza in Madrid. Organizatorii spun ca se asteapta la 1 milion de pelerini din intreaga lume sa participe.

Marsul de protest a fost pasnic, cu cateva urlete intre protestatari si suporterii papei, dar politia a oprit marsul si a scos protestatarii din piata, arestand cel putin unul din ei.

Un oficial de politie a spus ca studentul chimist, acum in arest, facea amenintari pe internet impotriva oamenilor din Spania care se opuneau vizitei, iar politia s-a auto-sesizat.

Politia a descoperit in locuinta suspectului mai multe caiete cu formule chimice ce nu avea treaba cu studiile sale. Oficialul a mai spus ca suspectul a incerat sa recruteze ajutoare pe internet si ca acesta planuia sa gazeze protestatarii cu "gaze sufocante", desi politia nu a gasit chimicale la locuinta sa.

De ce nu dezbat cu teologi & co.


Poate unele persoane se gandesc ca daca are loc o dezbatere "religie vs ateism", partea religioasa trebuie sa fie reprezentata de teologi, preoti etc.

Nu sunt de acord. Problema principala este ca teologii, preotii, cleru' sunt profesionisti. Sunt oameni care si-au investit/risipt viata pe scoala teologica si pe patrunderea in breasla de sutane. Rezultatul este acel "bias" ce garanteaza ca nu-si vor schimba pozitia in nici un caz pentru ca isi fac traiul din asta. Ei sunt dependenti de sistemul bisericesc si de iluzia religiei pentru a trai, a prospera.

Comparativ cu restul populatiei si comparativ cu noi, este o diferenta semnificativa. Noi nu avem un interes economic-financiar direct sa aparam realismul, secularismul, stiinta, ratiunea etc. pentru ca, in cea mai mare probabilitate, nu suntem profesionisti in aceste domenii. Pentru mine, e doar o activitate ce o fac in timpul liber... si banuiesc ca pentru majoritatea celor din blogroll e la fel. In consecinta, eu daca intru intr-o dezbatere, intru cu obiectivitate mai mare ca un teolog, din simplu motiv ca nu am interese personale economice in subiect.

Nu cred ca e imposibil ca un preot/teolog/whatever sa se lumineze in privinta iluziilor pe care le are in minte si sa renunte la profesie, la religie si sa-si gaseasca o meserie serioasa; cred doar ca e improbabil, asa ca nu ma obosesc cu dialoguri cu asa persoane.

Din experienta mea in dezbateri, din ce am facut si din ce am facut, pot sa spun ca dezbaterile cu persoane religioase fara legaturi economice cu industria credintei sunt mult mai interesante si mai productive.

Partea amuzanta a nihilismului (comic)






Panourile, traduse:

1. Din motive de neinteles, fiecare persoana din lume se naste cu o gaura imensa in centrul pieptului.

2. Desi nu este inconfortabila, este perceputa - in general - ca urata, si cam toata lumea incearca sa o umple cu ceva.

3. Unele persoane umple gaura cu religie, altele doar cumpara chestii, altele umple gaura cu alte persoane.

4. Eu am lasat-o pe a mea in pace... pentru ca am descoperit ca daca fugi impotriva vantului la unghiul corect, produce un sunet de fluieratura.

Deism vs Freud


"Philosophers stretch the meaning of words until they retain scarcely anything of their original sense; by calling ‘God’ some vague abstraction which they have created for themselves, they pose as deists, as believers, before the world; they may even pride themselves on having attained a higher and purer idea of God, although their God is nothing but an insubstantial shadow and no longer the mighty personality of religious doctrine."

The vengeful lamb, a christian archetype


From its start Christianity has represented an oppressed mass of people, symbolised by its prophet, Jesus Christ, who was basically a dissenter and a rebel, killed by the "status quo" of that place and period (allegedly).


Now looking at the New Testament, it becomes obvious that it was written from the point of view of outcasts, oppressed people, the suffering, the slaves. It speaks about how to treat the rich, the rulers, the elite - with kindness and forgiveness, but on the other hand it mentions that once you die and get away from this life, you end up in Paradise, from where you will be able to see all those who mistreated you burn in hell, for ever. Yes, that means satisfying the lust for retribution, vengeance, payback. In ensemble, the "framework" of the Bible is filled with hatred and blood-lust, disguised as "being kind and gentle". What has been the impact of this mindset over the course of history? What has this thinking of "see you in hell ...while I will let you destroy my life on Earth" done? I'm going to call this mindset the: "vengeful lamb".

EDIT:



Lamb, because such people are raised to be sacrificed (work or in war), to be consumed, but they are lamb-like in the sense that they're quiet and refuse to revolt against their masters. Vengeful because, deep inside, they would love to rebel, to react, to attack. But they won't, since they're scared lambs. The compromise of this attitude rests in believing in after-life retribution/revenge: "God will get you!". Of course, this also happens in smaller ways during life, but the ultimate revenge is believing that their imaginary father will bring ultimate punishment to the people they hate... just like kids thinking "just wait till my father comes!! he'll kick your ass!".




Up to its official birth in 313 with the Milan Edict, by the emperor Constantine, Christianity has gone through a lot of bloodbaths, getting killed and killing in the name of God, to establish the popularity of the christian religion. This was pretty easy to do, since there were a lot of slaves who were glad to hear the good news about a Paradise from where you can watch your enemies burn in hell for ever. Why DID Constantine make Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire? Well, it's certainly not because he saw a miracle, since he was not a religious person... only on his deathbed did he accept a the christian baptism. The most probable reason is the political one... Christianity is a great political tool. Constantine saw that soldiers bearing the sign of the cross, christian soldiers, had less fear in combat so they won more often, they had less fear of death because they were expecting to go to paradise for killing the "pagans". Constantine found this a wonderful advantage so he made the Empire christian, making room for the institution of the Church and for ..the Dark Ages. His armies were more powerful, though they were not entirely christian, since many troops were raised from roman colonies. The Roman colonies soon became "infested" with Christianity, as it was normal since they were basically slave colonies.



Theme music:

Lamb of God - Now You've Got Something to Die for


The Constatine case is a perfect example of the "vengeful lamb" mentality works, it's a wonderful tool for any empire. The vengeful lambs never put up a fight against the authority, against the status quo, IF that authority represents the christian God in some way. Emperors and Kings developed this technique by creating the institution of Christianity, the Church authority, which was supposedly the house of God on Earth; therefor when a high representative of the Church would anoint a king (bless), that king would be respected as a gift from God. Since Christians had to respect God on Earth, they had to respect the King and the Church. Therefor if you were not a Christian, you would be an outlaw, and possibly get stoned, hanged, burned to death, beheaded or just impaled. The majority of people in those periods didn't know how to read, so priests held the key to programing how people thought. The Church insisted that since it is the House of God, it is above the rules in the Bible, which are meant for normal people, idiots, so the whole thing about "thou shalt not kill" excluded the Church authorities. "thou shalt not steal" of course was a real danger to the rich fat elite, so it was severely punished, but when basically they stole (taxes) from the people, it would be O.K., because ..hey.. they were above the law.



Today, the "vengeful lamb" mentality has still remained in the West (unlike the original place where christians come from - the Middle East). Many christians still worship authority, the Church, the King if there is one, and they continue to bring the IQ of the planet down. What's worse is that they've been thought by the status quo how to vote for it, mostly noticeable in USA. Usually they were too dumb to get into voting, and the modern secular democratic state was a devastating blow to their vengeful religion... it became harder to execute people and it became harder for the religious-toned politicians to gain or hold power, in front of rational progressive people.



Speaking of the political movements in the USA, a great example of "vengeful lamb" is the case of many black people in America. Black people were used as slaves, especially in the South. It's enough to say that at one time in America's history, the official national language almost became GERMAN and that USA has deep deep German roots, so the white supremacist movement felt at home, even after slavery was "abolished". But let's look at the black slaves. They were CHRISTIANISED from the start. Well, thanks to the christian "virus", many of the black people became "vengeful lambs", even if they combined their ancient rituals & traditions from Africa with Christianity. Because they were "vengeful lambs", they were harmless to the authority, the white rulers. Religious organization was a good way for them to socialize and talk and sing, but at the end of the day they would go home and sit on their asses without standing up for their freedom and rights. Well that changed partially when blacks started getting away from mainstream christianity into secular humanism and even into Islam ( which does not have the vengeful lamb archetype... but it does have vengeful or reactionary types ("jihad") ). This is not saying that muslim fighters are not under the idea that they will go to Paradise if they die in fighting, they are, but they can't live under oppression, especially non-muslim oppression... it's harder to make slaves out of them, as it is obvious from the failed colonization of the Middle East (though, they do make slaves out of each other and out of people of other cultures --- see Africa...). In the USA this was pretty obvious: black people who had non-christian leanings were far more vocal and active in fighting the state oppression.


So just to remind you: "vengeful lamb" = a harmless slave like being which gathers a lot of hate in it and looks forward to revenge after it dies; this turns it harmless to any christianic authority, a slave, but it becomes a violent tool against non-christian forces (like self-slaughtering lambs).

Altruismul, reciprocitatea si contactele cu straini


Un studiu nou sugereaza ca altruismul "initial", cel care are loc atunci cand un individ manifesta comportament altruistic fata de persoane straine (de le care e cel mai improbabil sa vina vreun castig), este o caracteristica genetica fundamentala oamenilor, fiind selectata natural pentru castigurile pe termen lung aduse de asa comportament.

E vorba de arhetipul cunoscut de crestini ca "bunul samaritean".

"Generozitatea a evoluat pentru ca, la nivelul final, este o strategie cooperativa cu castiguri mari. Insa pentru a implementa aceasta strategie la nivel inferior, sisteme motivationale si reprezentationale probabil au fost selectate pentru a cauza generozitate chiar si in absenta oricarui castig evident. Generozitatea umana, departe de a fi o fatada construita prin conditionare culturala peste un miez machiavelic, poate sa fie o fundatie pentru natura umana."

Astfel de studii sunt relevante in combatarea vechilor teorii in care omul este prezentat ca fiinta nascuta cu un instinct puternic pentru egoism si lacomie, teorie intalnita des in mediul teoretic economic... dar si in cel teologic, cand apologetii spun ca omul e nascut "rau", imoral si doar "religia poate ridica omul" la o stare morala, bla bla etc.
