DRAGOSTEA nu e asa mare mister.


Dragoste, iubire, relatii, amor, pasiune, love, atasament, romanta si multe alte cuvinte care trebuie studiate mai bine. O prezentare de neurostiinta foarte interesanta si destul de veche de la TED:

There’s all kinds of reasons that you fall in love with one person rather than another: Timing is important. Proximity is important. Mystery is important. You fall in love with somebody who’s somewhat mysterious, in part because mystery elevates dopamine in the brain, probably pushes you over that threshold to fall in love.” (Helen Fisher)

Cand mai auziti pe un credincios "romantic" declarand ca "stiinta nu poate sa explice fenomene profunde ca dragostea", stiti ce sa faceti.

Un fel de "ghid" pentru escroci care au siteuri de produse miraculoase.

Fragment din "Scrisori de pe Pamant", de Mark Twain


Un fragment despre caracterul de psihopat al creatorului.

"I will tell you a pleasant tale which has in it a touch of pathos. A man got religion, and asked the priest what he must do to be worthy of his new estate. The priest said, "Imitate our Father in Heaven, learn to be like him." The man studied his Bible diligently and thoroughly and understandingly, and then with prayers for heavenly guidance instituted his imitations. He tricked his wife into falling downstairs, and she broke her back and became a paralytic for life; he betrayed his brother into the hands of a sharper, who robbed him of his all and landed him in the almshouse; he inoculated one son with hookworms, another with the sleeping sickness, another with gonorrhea; he furnished one daughter with scarlet fever and ushered her into her teens deaf, dumb, and blind for life; and after helping a rascal seduce the remaining one, he closed his doors against her and she died in a brothel cursing him. Then he reported to the priest, who said that that was no way to imitate his Father in Heaven. The convert asked wherein he had failed, but the priest changed the subject and inquired what kind of weather he was having, up his way."


Prin noroc am descoperit cartea "Letters from the Earth", de Mark Twain, online.

E o critica foarte eficienta si bine scrisa (ca doar vorbim de Clemens) a crestisnimului sub forma unor scrisori trimise de ingerul Satana catre colegii sai, de pe Pamant.

Sunt multe fragmente bune de pus pe aici, dar mi-e lene sa aleg.

Invata engleza, gratuit (minciuni!)!


Invata engleza! Gratuit! (In Cluj-Napoca)

DAR CU CATEVA SFORI ATASATE



Adica nu e gratis, ci trebuie sa te expui la indoctrinare religioasa deschisa sau subtila.


Si acum citez dintr-un articol "Christian Chronicle" ce l-am gasit pe Google, desigur.


Workers look to plant congregation on island of New Caledonia Noumea, New Caledonia — ThisFrench territory, about 915 mileseast of Brisbane, Australia, ishome to more than 250,000 souls.

It also includes one of the largestislands in the Pacific Ocean —perhaps the largest island in theworld with no Church of Christ.A small group of churchmembers hopes to change that.Barry Baggott, who overseesa ministry that produces French gospel literature, traveled to New Caledonia recently withhis son, Matthew, and Robert Martin, a longtime missionaryin the South Pacific.“This trip was primarily givento seed-sowing,” said Barry Baggott, whose work is spon-sored by the Crieve Hall churchin Nashville, Tenn. The ForestPark, Ga., church, supportsMartin’s work.The workers handed out tracts and enrollment cards for Bible correspondence courses in public parks and housing projects. They conducted Bibles studies and placed newspaper ads inviting islanders to study through the mail or online through World Bible School and World English Institute.The people have a mix ofreligious beliefs — Catholic,Protestant,animistic andatheistic, Barry Baggott said. Heplans to return toNew Caledonia twice per year to help establish achurch there. Barry Baggott

Cred ca e clara intentia lor. Invata Engleza citind propaganda si o biblie!


De pe siteul wfr.org:

The Let’s Start Talking (LST) program has been one of our more successful methods of teaching the Bible, as well as bridging the language barrier. This summer (June 12 – July 4) a group from the North Davis Church of Christ in Arlington, Texas, is working with us. Please pray that this LST team of Ladelle Young, Sally Brown, Judy Waymire, and Gloria Gonzalez will have a good response from our locals who will be touched by the Lord as they learn English via the Bible. As you know from our previous reports, we study with LST readers after LST teams leave us. Recently World English Institute furnished us with additional material that we can also use with people who are interested in studying with us.


Asta e un lucru pe care-l urasc la religia asta in mod special:  momeala, dusul cu zaharelul, tehnici de manipulare folosite fara nicio  urma de remuscare.  E aspectul care arata latura periculoasa si inselatoare a crestinismului, acea latura eclipsata de obicei de aspectul imbecilitatii.

Failibilitatea martorior, reconstruirea amintirilor. TED


O lectura TED in care se prezinta problema recunostruirea amintirilor ce face ca marturiile sa fie foarte failibile, un detaliu foarte important in tribunale.

Amintirile nu sunt inregistrari, ci reconstruiri ce folosesc experiente distincte.



Ar trebuie sa fie evidenta relevanta acestor observatii stiintifice pe domeniul religios. Cate religii nu depind de marturii, de martori, in fundamentele lor? Cate "miracole" nu sunt doar povesti cu martori agitati?

Pomana lu' peste prajit. Zeci de oameni intoxicati dupa o pomana




Nu e nimic special; se intampla ca la mese mari sa fie multe victime cand o mancare e infectata cu ceva bacterie periculoasa.

Ceea ce trebuie amintit credinciosilor este lectia: mancarea sfiintita nu e speciala.

Un contra-argument la regula de aur a crestinilor


“Sa iubesti pe aproapele tau ca pe tine insuti”(Matei 22:39)

Ma gandesc de mult timp la problemele etice ale acestei reguli, dar un exemplu bun ce incorporeaza contra-argumentul destul de bine nu mi-a fost la indeamana pana cand am avut o idee citind stiri despre activitatile preotilor bisericii catolice. E mai interesant cand nu folosesti argumente cu cazuri ipotetice.

Abuzul sexual! In mintea preotilor pedofili cu siguranta trebuie sa se aplice regula mentionata mai sus cu aproapele. Ei doar isi iubesc "aproapele micut" la fel cum se iubesc pe ei.

In esenta, "sa iubesti pe aproapele tau ca pe tine insuti", face apel emotional la un fel de empatie foarte limitata si ingusta, la aplicarea unei realitati personale si subiective. Daca un masochist se iubeste asa, va provoca suferinta celor din jur. Orice persoana care se iubeste prin metode ce provoaca daune si suferinta, in special pe termen lung, ajunge sa raspandeasca problema daca respecta principiul.

Acest principiu faciliteaza intoleranta prin ideea ca oamenii traiesc la fel - sub ceva principii universale (care, daca nu sunt respectate, probabil e o dovada de pacate, posesie demonica s.a.m.d.). Una din corolarele principiului acesta este... "uraste aproapele tau ca pe tine insuti", iar dupa cum stim, cam toate religiile te invata cum sa te urasti pentru cat de rau si pacatos esti.
