Philip Jackson Armstrong commented on Irreverend Mike's group Atheist Buddhists
" I find it sad that people can't see the difference between Buddhism and the teaching of Buddha. Buddhism is a cult, team, social group, religion, whatever, it takes more than one person to belong. Not even close to what his message is.The…"

A new paradigm

Maybe I'm crazy but think about this. The most incredible, powerful, useful thing in the world is free and it is built on on open source. The internet! Maybe if we did away with copyrights and patents, everything would bloom like it has. Maybe instead a company holding a patent for a drug at three hundred dollars a bottle we let competition bring the price down. It would cause losses for the the powers that rule us, but it would create competition so companies would try harder to…

 I'm a computer guy. I should have known, but I was totally blindsided tonight. I have an amazon.com account. I have in the past bought a few foreign movies and 2 computer books. Haven't bought anything in over a year. About a year ago I came a vegetarian. When I went to amazon tonight the first 2 rows of suggestions were vegetarian and vegan books. I realize that I probably clicked on a link for a book that took me there at some point in the last year but the fact that they have…

My first encounter with Jesus.

Posted on December 9, 2010 at 1:25pm 2 Comments



When I was a child religion was never ever discussed in my home. My only exposure was my Grandmother singing Onward Christian Soldiers and telling baby Jesus stories around Christmas time, all of which was meaningless to me. When I was 7 she convinced my parents that their children should experience Church and Christianity. So... we got up one Sunday morning and accompanied Gramma to her Episcopalian Church. I didn't care much sermon part. It was boring and by that age I found herd… Continue

Heh, thanks.  I sometimes sense that my mind makes connections more easily than most.  I compare it to the connections people make when they're high on pot (which I've never used, actually), only hopefully not delusional, since it's not caused by the use of mind-altering chemicals.  My mind also crunches numbers effortlessly and rapidly, so I like to hope that the connections are associated with a causal chain ... somehow related to the mathematical ability.

 

Admittedly, I haven't been in voice-of-reason mode as much, lately, mostly due to time constraints.  I think my last 5 or 10 contributions to discussion threads and such have been more on the snarky side, in keeping with the theme of my standup material.  That's what's constraining my time, actually.  I'm done procrastinating and am finally getting my material down cold and am starting to set up regular practice runs/performances.

 

And actually, I am crazy ... clinically speaking.  I'm just not delusionally crazy.  The bipolar disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder are relatively non-volatile forms of insanity.

In my experience, most psychologists/psychiatrists are a bit crazy.  ^.^  I think it's the emotional issues of their childhood which raise most people's interest in the field.  I've taken several psychology classes, myself, giving me just enough knowledge to be dangerous.  I have a lot of respect for people who turn their study of self-discovery into something more philanthropic.
