Quote# 66918


There is a long and inglorious association between sodomy and black magic, from the medieval Buggers to the Ordo Templi Orientis' XI°.

Sodomy, as the figurative deposition of human seed in anal filth, is anti-God and anti-life. Physical acts are not morally neutral.

Suuuure. In Bizarro World, this might be a fact. Nevertheless, we both know you're just regurgitating papist propaganda.

Whereas you have privileged access to the unvarnished truth and are not in the least regurgitating gnostic propaganda ...

I knew that the god of Abraham was a lying fraud long before the Nag Hammadi library was translated and published. So, "Gnostic propaganda" merely vindicates what I knew all along.

There's a whole bizarre subtext to Piltdown Man's garbage here -- the idea that the symbolic significance he attaches to any given act is a more fundamental part of that act than the physical reality of it. It's as if I were to declare that Piltdown Man is clearly a proponent of the doctrine of reincarnation, as he symbolically enacts this doctrine by going to sleep and then waking up again. After all, the symbolic reading of a physical act is always more important than the actual motives involved -- especially when the symbolism is meaningless to the person actually engaging in the act.

How did you know it all along?

It's not a case of me assigning some arbitrary "symbolic significance" to a physical act, the "physical reality" of which is separate from this symbolism.

It's a case of God assigning the human person, body and soul, a particular teleological end, or series of ends, which we are at liberty to frustrate to our own physical and spiritual detriment.

Sometimes I wonder if god is up there on a cloud with a bag of ice on his head and muttering, "Make it stop...these dustbrains are giving me an ulcer....I didn't sign up for this death match between them and the rest of the world..."

My rationality was active at a young age, before the religionists realized I was thinking for myself.

@ Piltdown Man --

Right. Teleology presented as a series of assertions within your symbolic system, which you claim has precedence over reality when the reality varies from your set of doctrines. I keep hearing the voice of Jean Baudrillard chanting "I told you so" in my ear...between you and the right-wing movement generally, dude hasn't stopped for a few years now.

Sure it wasn't just your pride that was active at a young age?

According to your understanding, how does the traditional Christian teaching on sodomy diverge from "reality"?

"I keep hearing the voice of Jean Baudrillard chanting "I told you so" in my ear...between you and the right-wing movement generally, dude hasn't stopped for a few years now."

What "right-wing movement" are you referring to?

Isn't this the guy who claimed Meyers was demon-possessed or something?

Then again, that really doesn't narrow it down very much, does it?

Piltdown Man: "I've noticed this persistent liberal tic -- the belief that liberalism is so self-evidently good, true and beautiful that non-liberals cannot possibly be motivated by rational disagreement."

There are three parts to your "Liberalism", and not all "Liberals" believe in all of the three:
- Humanism
- Socialism
- Atheism

If #3, Athiesm, is true, then #1, Humanism looks the most appealing as an ideology, but it also looks good to a lot of Christians.

Now, if Humanism is our ideology, we need an ethical system to match our values. Most will find that a weak version of utilitarianism or ethical hedonism fits well. Neither of these prohibit homosexuality, and argue that banning it would cause more harm than good.

#2, Socialism, is a practical problem, not an ideological one, and so is seperate to the others. I don't completely agree with it myself.

I won't bore you with the evidence in favour of athiesm, as it's not hard to find on the internet. Make sure to look at it from an unbiased point of view.

By the way, I find your Christian theology to be a simplistic and unsatisfying metaphysics that doesn't give a satisfactory answer to questions at all.

If it's any consolation, most Catholics would probably agree with you. On the other hand, in some circles I'd be considered dangerously moderate.

Urban legend. I actually said the individual calling himself "FSMdude" was in all probability a victim of demonic possession.

There is some evidence that PZ Myers could be suffering from the condition known as demonic obsession, but full-blown possession seems unlikely.

(BTW I gather Professor Myers has been very poorly lately. May God grant him a swift recovery and contrition for his sacrilegious acts.)

My definition of "liberalism" wouldn't include atheism. There are plenty of religious folk who would describe themselves as liberal or even humanist. Conversely, not all atheists are liberals or humanist -- on the late lamented RDF I encountered an authoritarian technocrat and a bloodthirsty Nietzschean, both of whom dreamed of wiping religion off the face of the Earth.


"Now, if Humanism is our ideology, we need an ethical system to match our values. Most will find that a weak version of utilitarianism or ethical hedonism fits well."


Do you find that a satisfactory ethic yourself?


"#2, Socialism, is a practical problem, not an ideological one, and so is seperate to the others. I don't completely agree with it myself."


As I understand it, a central doctrine of socialism is the redistribution of wealth by the state apparatus in order to achieve a supposedly more equitable society. Sounds pretty ideological to me.


"I won't bore you with the evidence in favour of athiesm, as it's not hard to find on the internet. Make sure to look at it from an unbiased point of view."


I am familiar with the arguments for atheism but I find them unpersuasive. If I found them persuasive I would be an atheist, obviously.


"By the way, I find your Christian theology to be a simplistic and unsatisfying metaphysics that doesn't give a satisfactory answer to questions at all."


Curious ... Roman Catholic theology is usually dismissed for its alleged hyper-intellectualism and hair-splitting subtlety. What questions do you feel it fails to answer satisfactorily?

Hmmm...so is sleeping good or evil?
