CMP (Canadian Mind Products)’s purpose is to stand up for the rights of plants and animals. Animals also includes cetacea, humans, gay people, atheists, war victims and invertebrates. CMP attempts to inculcate planetary consciousness — concern for the planet as a whole. A subgoal is to teach people to use computers effectively, particularly with the Java computer language.
I’m there to support them [soldiers] in their mission, you know, winning a war and that means taking lives.~ Lt. Col. Lyn Brown US Army chaplain
I heard Brown on NPR (National Public Radio) This American Life explaining that his job essentially was convincing soldiers reluctant to kill that God approved and wanted the soldier to kill people and win the war. You can listen to the interview as he confesses his revolting crimes twisting the bible to justify murder on the grounds Jesus healed the daughter of a soldier, implying Jesus must thus have approved of what the soldier did. That is so sick. Even doctors treat war criminals, which does not in the least imply approval. I could imagine a Nazi chaplain giving this exact same pep talk to encourage a soldier to fight in a similar illegal aggressive war. This chaplain is more immoral than the sleasiest lawyer.
In traditional Christian theology, it is the devil’s work to trick someone into committing a mortal sin. What motivates this piece of shit? It can’t be defending the USA. He knows full well the USA attacked Afghanistan and Iraq not the reverse and neither country has the means to mount an attack. Perhaps a vicarious thrill thinking about the killing and child suffering he cheerleads? He can’t claim ignorance. He admits he thoroughly thought over the morality of what he was doing and decided for evil.
Let’s say you were having a particularly difficult barn raising. Which strategy would work best:
- Ask everyone to come hungry and have a corn roast after the work was done.
- Send everyone a boxed turkey dinner with all the fixing and ask them to come stuffed to the gills.
The second method is how Republicans want to encourage rich people to get to work creating jobs, by giving them huge amounts of money up front whether they create any jobs or not.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)
What Happens After You Die?
What happens when we die? When I was four, I did an experiment to find out. Every few days I would dig up my sister’s dead turtle to see if it revived. It did not. Some snot came out of its nose, but that’s all. I presume the same applies to me because I am also an animal.
When I go under anaesthesia, I watch myself disappear. Nothing whatsoever happens. Later, I pop back into existence as if no time had passed. I presume being dead feels the same, without the revival. It is like the complete non-existence before I was born. All this stuff about heaven and souls is just wishful thinking. There is no evidence for it.
I have had some out of body experiences, but I was alive at the time. I see them just as vivid hallucinations of what the world would look like from a different vantage point. Everyone can do this, at least in imagination.
The Christian after-death myth to me is utterly ridiculous, because it applies to only one species, not even species with bigger brains than ours. Nothing in nature treats a single species in a unique way. Further, there is not a stick of evidence for the Christian story.
Mediums trick people into believing they can communicate with the departed. They sometimes bilk their victims for millions of dollars. Christians are gullible because they are so desperate to believe their loved ones are not really dead. Preachers bilk their flocks with a similar con.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)
