Yeah, of course it's a message, TV is full of physicists these days all 
explaining the nature of the fundament, stands to reason that you have to fit 
stuff in to the accepted paradigm. Otherwise they wouldn't bother.

 

 But then I didn't post the other two links from the Daily Mail this week about

drought years back to back and a real drought sets in for 60 or 90 days across 
the mid-crop growing stage from seedling to pollination. You'll all repent then 
you sinners and become believers in the obvious that carbon dioxide is the

Most Religions have lost contact with their essential source of knowledge, that 
is, pure intelligence, or Being as Consciousness.  As such, they are like ships 
with a damaged rudder, better than nothing but not very effective.
 

 Slowly, as ethical humanism takes over decaying Religion, the ethical and 
moral foundations of Religions will all be knocked slowly away (note gay 
marriage) by the intellectual elite who happen to be atheists.
 

 Life, without a guide, will disintegrate until a revival of knowledge and 
experience and *Religious Science*  replace moral relativism and ethical 
humanism.

Barry claimed he read over 200 books on the Cathars but not a single 
book on the Gnostics. Go figure.


Cathars are derived from Bogumils; Bogomils are derived from Paulicans; 
Paulicans from Manicheans; Manicheans from Gnostics. Thus the Cathars 
are derived from Gnostics.


Barry apparently isn't aware of the Languedocian legend of the 'Queen of 
the South', (Reine du Midi), a title a countess of Toulosue, the 
'Protectrix', identified with the Syrian goddess Anath who in turn is 
closely linked with Isis and the bird-footed Lilith.


Yet another legend current in France is the Meridiana to whom was 
conveyed the secrets of alchemy to Gerbert d'Auriliac. The name 
Meridiana is derived from 'Mary-Diana' thus linking the Magdalene 
legends in the South of France. Lagudedoc was also home to the Knights 
Templers in Europe.


Stoyanov thinks that the one single local Langudocian notion in 
Catharism was the theology of the belief that Mary Magdalene was the 
concubine of Jesus - knowledge that was reserved for the inner circle of 
Cathars: The teaching of Mary Magdalene as the 'wife or 'concubine' of 
Christ appears moreover, an original Cathar tradition which doesn not 
have any counterpart in Bogomil doctrines.


It is also worth noting that the date of the massacre at Beziers, 22 
July 1209, was St Mary Magdalene's Day or the Feast Day of Mary 
Magdalene. You'll probably also want to make a note of the fact that 
forty years previously the local lord Raymond Trencavel was slain inside 
the Church of Mary Magdalene at Beziers.


The early Gnostic Gospels have no hesitation describing the relationship 
between Mary Magdalene and Jesus. It's unlikely that the townsfolk would 
have access to the Gnostic Gospel, so how do we account for the presence 
of Magdalene legends at Beziers, Maxim, and Provencal? It must have been 
a powerful legend to cause the entire Inquisition to be formulated just 
to root them out. Catharism was the State religion of Languedoc.

 Barry,


According to Wikipedia, the Cathars were practicing a religion that 
was not part of the Roman Catholic doctrine.  In those days, religious 
differences were settled by war.



I'm curious to know if there are still secret sects who practice 
Catharism in southern France or elsewhere in Europe today.  Writers, 
like Dan Brown, could probably sell many books about this subject.

 Share,

 I believe it would take another Vatican Council to consider the

question of priesthood for women. This council will only happen if the
entire church leadership perceives that women can fill the priestly
duties that are needed in the parishes. If the supply of quality men
who want to be priests dwindles, the church leaders will have to
consider accepting women as priests.

I will merely interject an interesting (at least to me) point of
history. The Albigensian Crusade, more aptly named The Systematic
Extermination Of A Competing Christian Sect We're Going To Call
'Heretics' Because It Sounds Better Than 'We're Afraid Of Them', is
blamed by the majority of historians on the Cathars' rejection of
certain fundamental ideas of Roman dogma. They believed -- and practiced
-- 'heresy'. A more real reason is that the Cathar religion was growing
by leaps and bounds in the areas of Europe in which it had arisen, at a
time when many people were leaving the Roman Church and its coffers were
dwindling. Can't have that. So they called the Cathars 'heretics' and
eliminated the competition.

But one of the minor points of dogma that probably frightened the Roman
Church the most was that the Cathars exemplified almost total parity
between men and women. Women were allowed to hold property in their own
names, in the 1200s, in what is now the south of France. That didn't
happen officially in what is now France until De Gaulle.

Worse, the Cathar priesthood was open equally to men and women. There
were equal numbers of men and women priests. Really, really, really
can't have that. Just sayin'...

[FairfieldLife] Free Man In Paris V4.01: slightly warmer, in many ways

2013-11-21 Thread TurquoiseB
Same cafe, vastly different mindset. It's still chilly and rainy out,
but as usual it's warm and cozy on the terrace of this cafe. But tonight
there is live music. I simply could not have designed one of my Last
Nights In Paris better if I had tried to do so.

Just inside the cafe proper, and visible from where I'm sitting through
the glass doors, is a three-piece jazz band doing remarkably good Django
Reinhart and the Hot Band Of Paris numbers. Not quite the same
instrumentation -- this group consists of two guitarists and one guy on
sax -- but they still rock.

So I'm about to kick back and enjoy the music, but then the guy next to
me strikes up a conversation, and I can tell instantly that it's going
to be a Good Conversation, so I stop writing what I was writing and pay
attention. Turns out his name is Ben, and he's French, but not
originally from Paris. He points out that when he tells Parisians where
he's from, they look down on him and tune him out. I'm American, and
don't know his home town from shit, so we get along just swimmingly.

And we proceed to have just the Best Parisian Cafe Conversation Ever. It
just fuckin' SOARS, from music to culture to philosophy to Road Trips to
ennuie and how to combat it, to what one does for a living and how
little that matters, to women. And when it comes to women, working as I
do on an integrated development environment for creating iPhone (and
other mobiles) apps, I get to kick back and watch Ben conduct this
long-distance budding romance via texting on his iPhone with a comely
young woman who came into the snowboarding shop where he works and who
has taken the trouble to track down his phone number so she can text
him. This is right-out-of-a-movie stuff; I am just *dying* of laughter
(not the derisive kind) watching all of these texts go down.

She, in her brazen behavior of Texting Him First, has completely
rendered Ben senseless, and smitten. I watch, from my
at-least-thirty-years-older-than-Ben-and-his-new-beloved's point of
view, as a romance really starts, and just enjoy. It's just magic.

Then, appreciating my appreciation, Ben (a regular here) goes out of his
way to introduce me to the only woman in the cafe he's seen me eyeing.
Later, he admits that he did this because he saw her eyeing me back, and
motioning for him to introduce us. She is tall and slim, her name is
Blondine, and from my completely objective, unbiased-in-any-way, and
near-to-Ritam-quality-accurate point of view, kinda a knockout.

We get along well, but then the alarm sounds on *my* iPhone, and I have
to leave to attend one of the last remote phone meetings of my career in
Paris as a consultant to IBM. I would've gladly blown off the meeting,
but it's the one at which I have to contribute my consultant's view of
what's right with the project I've been working on and what's not, so I
really can't blow it off. I owe them the truth. That's what they're
really paying me for.

But you can certainly bet that I'll be here again next week when I
return. Maybe Blondine will be here, maybe she won't. But either way,
I'll be enjoying a night out in a great cafe in Paris, so it's not as if
it'll be a real bummer either way. Cafes are what you make of them.

 Barry, 
 

 According to Wikipedia, the Cathars were practicing a religion that was not 
part of the Roman Catholic doctrine.  In those days, religious differences were 
settled by war.
 

 I'm curious to know if there are still secret sects who practice Catharism in 
southern France or elsewhere in Europe today.  Writers, like Dan Brown, could 
probably sell many books about this subject.

  Share,
 
  I believe it would take another Vatican Council to consider the
 question of priesthood for women. This council will only happen if the
 entire church leadership perceives that women can fill the priestly
 duties that are needed in the parishes. If the supply of quality men
 who want to be priests dwindles, the church leaders will have to
 consider accepting women as priests.
 
 I will merely interject an interesting (at least to me) point of
 history. The Albigensian Crusade, more aptly named The Systematic
 Extermination Of A Competing Christian Sect We're Going To Call
 'Heretics' Because It Sounds Better Than 'We're Afraid Of Them', is
 blamed by the majority of historians on the Cathars' rejection of
 certain fundamental ideas of Roman dogma. They believed -- and practiced
 -- 'heresy'. A more real reason is that the Cathar religion was growing
 by leaps and bounds in the areas of Europe in which it had arisen, at a
 time when many people were leaving the Roman Church and its coffers were
 dwindling. Can't have that. So they called the Cathars 'heretics' and
 eliminated the competition.
 
 But one of the minor points of dogma that probably frightened the Roman
 Church the most was that the Cathars exemplified almost total parity
 between men and women. Women were allowed to hold property in their own
 names, in the 1200s, in what is now the south of France. That didn't
 happen officially in what is now France until De Gaulle.
 
 Worse, the Cathar priesthood was open equally to men and women. There
 were equal numbers of men and women priests. Really, really, really
 can't have that. Just sayin'...

Well, as a substantial resolution we should all be investing in energy 
efficient sustainable group meditation meeting homes for quiet-time meditations 
where people live, go to school, or work. Pay people to do a full two hour 
meditation program twice a day during the workday. We could achieve upwards of 
50 percent reduction in emission of climate change greenhouse gases. Somehow we 
have to get back to much simpler standards of living for the benefit of all 
living beings. We need to attack rampant materialism somewhere. It should start 
with instituting quiet-time meditation for everyone. -Buck

listing them and giving a bit of background. Some of the entries are 
long; others are only a paragraph or two. And there's an interview 
with Alex Jones at the end.



The compendium starts here; at the bottom of each item is a link to 
the next one. This is a very long one:

To be honest, I didn't care for that post of Share's, but Share is my friend 
and I do not criticize my friends. 

 

 You have been pursuing a vendetta against Share for more than a year now, I 
would guess. She has dealt with you mostly in a civil fashion and has even 
tried to engage you in friendly conversation. But your hostility and abuse has 
been relentless. Were I the moderator of this forum, I would issue you with a 
warning to stop the repeated abuse of one member or face expulsion. Then if you 
did not comply I would remove you from this forum. There is already a precedent 
for that with the poster who was recently banned.

Share,
 

 I believe it would take another Vatican Council to consider the question of 
priesthood for women.  This council will only happen if the entire church 
leadership perceives that women can fill the priestly duties that are needed in 
the parishes.  If the supply of quality men who want to be priests dwindles, 
the church leaders will have to consider accepting women as priests.

This is in response to emptybill's accusations that I have harassed her wife.


 This is nothing but a vicious, malicious lie. I have stretched the limits to 
confront, shock and humiliate emptybill but to suggest I ever contacted his 
wife is hilarious. Emptybill had accidentally emailed me last year and we have 
had private conversations, I have all emails with me and they were all cordial 
and I even wished him luck after he talked about his marriage after a 10 year 
live-in relationship. I'm really shocked at emptybill's dishonesty and I have 
warned him and the moderators to disallow these kinds of malicious lies.

Spin. Spin the top, Judy. Blame it all on Share.

Share's comment was justified because Ann wanted to shoot me and posted 
many racist statements about where I live and where I was born. Good 
work, Share!


On the other hand, Judy sounds like a coward, picking on Share all the 
time, instead of policing this group not to post racist statements. It 
may come a surprise to Share to realize that many of the FFL informants 
are prejudiced and really hateful. Go figure.

I have a better idea: start by becoming a vegetarian if what Richard says is to 
be believed (and I believe it). If one is going to meditate perhaps we should 
do so in a house that does not require heat or air conditioning. That would 
mean moving to a more temperate climate. Do you eat meat Buck? Do you drive a 
car or tractor? Do you heat your home? Do you consume anything not made within 
5 miles of where you live? Do you ever travel to faraway places to see 
saints? I'd like to be able to say your simplistic and elegant solution of 
meditating for two hours a day was going to solve all this but, alas, I fear 
you may have missed the proverbial mark.

 Well, as a substantial resolution we should all be investing in energy

50 percent reduction in emission of climate change greenhouse gases. Somehow we

 imo is to poison a fun exchange I'm having with another poster. Which usually 
happens when I've been ignoring you all. IMO this is what Ann did, despite all 
of her clever and or politically correct utterances and your moral posturing. 
And I don't feel like a victim at all. I feel like someone who has stood up 
appropriately for herself. 

From the beginning of all this, you initiate attack, Judy and I defend myself 
as I see fit. I do not initiate attack and that is, I think an important 
difference. One that you will more likely neither see nor admit.

It's got nothing to do with fear. 

 

 You are probably right about the recent banning of that poster. You are not 
abusive in the way that he was. You do it in your own style. I actually like 
you, authfriend, but your vendetta against Share leaves a bad taste in the 
mouth and I think you should tone it down.

 I'm not going to go into a long defense, but your description below of both my

line, I'd point out that as a friend of Share, you're biased, and therefore I

 Also, the banning of indifferent_netizen is not a precedent for banning me. In

 According to Wikipedia, the Cathars were practicing a religion that was not

 I'm curious to know if there are still secret sects who practice Catharism in

  I believe it would take another Vatican Council to consider the
 question of priesthood for women. This council will only happen if the
 entire church leadership perceives that women can fill the priestly
 duties that are needed in the parishes. If the supply of quality men
 who want to be priests dwindles, the church leaders will have to
 consider accepting women as priests.
 
 I will merely interject an interesting (at least to me) point of
 history. The Albigensian Crusade, more aptly named The Systematic
 Extermination Of A Competing Christian Sect We're Going To Call
 'Heretics' Because It Sounds Better Than 'We're Afraid Of Them', is
 blamed by the majority of historians on the Cathars' rejection of
 certain fundamental ideas of Roman dogma. They believed -- and practiced
 -- 'heresy'. A more real reason is that the Cathar religion was growing
 by leaps and bounds in the areas of Europe in which it had arisen, at a
 time when many people were leaving the Roman Church and its coffers were
 dwindling. Can't have that. So they called the Cathars 'heretics' and
 eliminated the competition.
 
 But one of the minor points of dogma that probably frightened the Roman
 Church the most was that the Cathars exemplified almost total parity
 between men and women. Women were allowed to hold property in their own
 names, in the 1200s, in what is now the south of France. That didn't
 happen officially in what is now France until De Gaulle.
 
 Worse, the Cathar priesthood was open equally to men and women. There
 were equal numbers of men and women priests. Really, really, really
 can't have that. Just sayin'...

poster, but she really got low and mean with Share, for no good reason

she carries on about Share. The sad thing is, she took Ann and Emily

 applies to several contractors who work through him who (like me)
 already have a long history of being able to work remotely, and for
 *their* company. So he understands my decision as well.
 
 Whatever I wind up working on, it'll be more pleasant because I'll be
 able to do it from my own desk, while taking the occasional break to
 walk the dog and play with Maya. As nice as Paris is, the having to pack
 up, spend hours on the train getting here and then more hours commuting

  write tech stuff by day. And I have no reason to complain. The Airbnb
  apartment I'm staying in for this two-week period is the nicest I've
  ever found, the quartier is very lively and interesting, and the day
  work for my client is going well. By night I get to haunt the cafes.
 
  So why did I give notice last week, and tell my client that I'm
 leaving
  at the end of my current contract?
 
  The short answer is, It's time.
 
  There are many answers, of course, and because I'm me, and because
 this
  is a cool writing cafe, with a cozy-warm outdoor terrace even in the
  chilly weather, I'll rap about some of them. Be warned.
 
  * It's time. This is an opportune time for me to bow out of the
 project
  I'm working on, because one software release cycle has just finished,
  and the next is longer so they'll have ample time to find a
 replacement
  tech writer. I do not bear the company any ill will, and would gladly
  continue to work for them if I could do so from home. Unfortunately,
  they have BBBRs (Big Bureaucratic Business Rules) that prohibit them
  from allowing contractors to work from home.
 
  * It's time. The gig, although it's been fascinating and lucrative,
 has
  been wearing on me a bit physically. All the travel, the lugging of
  suitcases around, and all that have begun to wear on me such that I'm
  losing my appreciation of this great city. Can't have that.
 
  * It's time. As much as I love Paris, I've been finding lately that I
  love Leiden more. So I'd like to spend more time there.
 
  * It's time. I have other things I'd prefer to write about than the
  product my current client is paying me to write about.
 
  * It's time. And, interestingly enough, *about* time. Now that I've
  given my notice, I know that I only have a limited number of days
 left
  in Paris on my client's nickel. I think this will inspire me to
  appreciate them more, and take them less for granted.
 
  So the long answer seems to be the same as the short answer. It's
  time.

 Share,

  I believe it would take another Vatican Council to consider the
question of priesthood for women.  This council will only happen if the
entire church leadership perceives that women can fill the priestly
duties that are needed in the parishes.  If the supply of quality men
who want to be priests dwindles, the church leaders will have to
consider accepting women as priests.

I will merely interject an interesting (at least to me) point of
history. The Albigensian Crusade, more aptly named The Systematic
Extermination Of A Competing Christian Sect We're Going To Call
'Heretics' Because It Sounds Better Than 'We're Afraid Of Them', is
blamed by the majority of historians on the Cathars' rejection of
certain fundamental ideas of Roman dogma. They believed -- and practiced
-- 'heresy'. A more real reason is that the Cathar religion was growing
by leaps and bounds in the areas of Europe in which it had arisen, at a
time when many people were leaving the Roman Church and its coffers were
dwindling. Can't have that. So they called the Cathars 'heretics' and
eliminated the competition.

But one of the minor points of dogma that probably frightened the Roman
Church the most was that the Cathars exemplified almost total parity
between men and women. Women were allowed to hold property in their own
names, in the 1200s, in what is now the south of France. That didn't
happen officially in what is now France until De Gaulle.

Worse, the Cathar priesthood was open equally to men and women. There
were equal numbers of men and women priests. Really, really, really
can't have that. Just sayin'...

Thanks to you and Bhairitu for getting it. There are priorities in life,

high on my list of them. :-)



Problem I have doing contracting is they are always wanting me to do 
something that is not my venue instead of something that uses my 
strengths.  Biggest part of contracting is managing their expectations.




It's not as if I'll be retiring. There's still lots of work to do,
editing and writing medical articles for my family's company, and the
technopimp who is running my contract with IBM (they stopped being able
to work directly with contractors) says he has a few at-home gigs to
present me for. He's not fond of their rules, either, especially as it
applies to several contractors who work through him who (like me)
already have a long history of being able to work remotely, and for
*their* company. So he understands my decision as well.

Whatever I wind up working on, it'll be more pleasant because I'll be
able to do it from my own desk, while taking the occasional break to
walk the dog and play with Maya. As nice as Paris is, the having to pack
up, spend hours on the train getting here and then more hours commuting
across the city to get to work are just making the gig non-viable.

The only thing I'll miss is the occasional wide-band broadcast of hype
for their newest Next Big Thing. The latest -- for a Cloud Cognitive
Computing technology called Watson -- was like watching evangelists for
the Church of Skynet. :-)

So Judy, were you being disloyal recently when you didn't let indiff know that 
he was messing up badly? Or you didn't think he was messing up badly? 

 

 IMO the disparity between how you treated him and how you treated me clearly 
indicates that you are prejudiced against me and not the upholder of truth and 
reality that you continually present yourself as. 

 

 My guess is you are still against me because of the situation between me and 
RWC that began Sept 2012.
 That's your choice. But when I think you are being prejudicial, I will say so.

 I'm not going to go into a long defense, but your description below of both my

don't consider anything you have to say about this to be worthwhile.)
 

 Also, the banning of indifferent_netizen is not a precedent for banning me. In 
the first place, we don't know why he was banned; Rick didn't tell us. I'm 
guessing it was for threatening to out emptybill, something I have never done

You don't criticize your friends? Even if they deserve it? Interesting. Why 
not? Are you afraid if you do, they'll no longer be your friends? Because I'd 
say it's not much of a friendship that can't survive honest criticism.
 

 I'm not going to go into a long defense, but your description below of both my 
and Share's behavior is significantly inaccurate. (If I were to take Share's 
line, I'd point out that as a friend of Share, you're biased, and therefore I 
don't consider anything you have to say about this to be worthwhile.)
 

 Also, the banning of indifferent_netizen is not a precedent for banning me. In 
the first place, we don't know why he was banned; Rick didn't tell us. I'm 
guessing it was for threatening to out emptybill, something I have never done 
to anyone. In the second place, I have never spoken to anyone on this forum 
anything like the way indiff spoke to emptybill--or the way emptybilll spoke to 
indiff, for that matter.

 You have been pursuing a vendetta against Share for more than a year now, I 
would guess. She has dealt with you mostly in a civil fashion and has even 
tried to engage you in friendly conversation. But your hostility and abuse has 
been relentless. Were I the moderator of this forum, I would issue you with a 
warning to stop the repeated abuse of one member or face expulsion. Then if you

You are always babbling/spewing/blubbering/snarling about how honest you are

took the nasty/vicious quotient of my opponent's posts down a level with each

 I think the perception of nasty and vicious is directly proportional to how

 It's not so much that the Mail's site is so fantastic (though it is 
user-friendly) but more that American on-line editions are so bland. In fact, 
American newspapers are pretty boring IMHO - which is quite surprising given 
that America is a world leader in TV news. American newspapers are too sober 
and too old-fashioned in their layout. Yes, you have tabloid trash like The 
Enquirer (which are fun) but there's a lack of striking design and engaging

[FairfieldLife] RE: Church of England Paves Way for Women Bishops in 2014

2013-11-21 Thread s3raphita
Re women cannot be priests:
 

 Can I propose an alternative approach? What's wrong with women being 
*priestesses*?! That was the honourable title they were given in the pagan 
world of antiquity.
 

 It strikes me that the Christian churches are so male-oriented that trying to 
include female priests and bishops is really to try and include women who 
happen to imitate more or less successfully their male colleagues. Is that 
really desirable or feasible in an institution that for millennia has been 
dominated by a male ethos? Isn't it asking women to essentially conform to male 
values?
 

 But, on the other hand, do we really want to exclude women from having a 
central role in our religious life?
 

 Is their a solution to this dilemma? What about this: the Christian churches 
continue in having only male priests and bishops - and exclude women. That fits 
naturally with their historical story and avoids embarrassing admissions that 
they've been wrong for 2,000 years!
 

 But how about this: women develop their own religious ceremonies and practices 
outside the Christian dispensation but alongside the male bias of Christian 
churches and thus run in parallel - not as opponents but as adding a 
complementary aspect. I have in mind someone like Olivia Robertson, (who died 
last week!). She was an author, artist, co-founder and high priestess of the 
Fellowship of Isis, an international spiritual organisation devoted to 
promoting awareness of the feminine aspect of the divine. The Fellowship of 
Isis has thousands of members worldwide. Take  a peek here:
