Myra Hess – Piano to Combat Evil

During the war years and the blitz, Dame Myra Hess organized over one thousand concerts at the National Gallery. The Gallery had removed all the paintings, keeping just one on display each month, and thousands of people (many not regular concertgoers) came to listen, be inspired, and possibly garner a little hope from these wartime concerts.

Because, you see, for the christians (include Islam here) believe that god knows all – that is, the future already exists and is predictable (hence the prophecies telling us what will happen no matter what). And yet they insist god gives them free will, which really is only possible if the future does not exist and not even god knows how it will turn up. This is of course heretic, since god is a know-all kind of guy. He is also a mafia don (a wise guy?) who will make you a proposal you cannot refuse (“love me or go to hell”: it is your free will!), and a stalker (“Christianity is not a religion, it is a relationship and Jesus wants a relationship with you! He knows everything you do and all the hairs in your head, and your innermost thoughts, and if they are not about loving him, you go to hell” please, get me an injunction order against this weirdo who will not take no for an answer and is invading my privacy).

This sort of contradiction gets them all agitated and it is not long before the random bible quoting starts. It doesn’t really sort out anything, but makes them feel better.

And let me be clear here to the Christians (include Islam here): this is not a tirade against religion. It is a tirade against the way some people talk about religion and god. Listen to yourselves and consider if you are doing it a service or disservice.

Wow, I totally never contribute to the anything but piano section, especially not religious threads, but I couldn't pass this up, mostly because of my high respect for Bernhard. Do you really think such an obvious contradiction could go unnoticed for 2000+ years by legions of great Christian thinkers and philosophers (Aquinas, Augustine, Abelard, etc.)? There really is no contradiction at all, as a matter of fact this is an extremely modern concept. Einstein shows us that time is really merely another dimension, like height/width/depth, the only difference is that our consciousness moves along it. A short time later, Heisenberg and Bohr (I think) showed that the universe is not deterministic in nature, and later advances have continued to show that, especially at the quantum (microscopic) level, the universe is alarmingly random.

Back on earth, this translates to: just because my action always has and always will exist doesn't make it any less mine. The actions I performed in the past are obviously mine, and so will my future actions. God, in Christian theology, is a being who exists outside of time. This is all very difficult to describe, but philosophically sound. Furthermore, the division between heaven, hell, and purgatory (I'm a Catholic) is the most perfect example of free will. Hell is reserved for those who wish for an existence without God, whereas heaven is fit only for those who are ready to choose love and God at all times.

I wish I could respond to the last part of your quote, but I don't understand it at all. You mean, by pointing out certain "inherent" contradictions in Christianity, you wish only to tirade against the way people talk about it? This is extraordinarily illucid and sloppy, Bernhard, I don't think it's at all up to your usual standard.

When I was younger and had been reading books by John Dunne and J.B. Priestley about time and dreaming, I kept an extensive dream diary to see if I dreamed of future events. I was amazed to find, like these writers,  that my dreams contained an enormous amount of seemingly precognitive detail. For some months I was carried away with all sorts of mystical, semi-religious notions. I now think what happens is akin to the Ramsey effect (Frank Ramsey, early twentieth century mathematician). It's much the same as the apparently astonishing coincidence when two people present at a gathering are found to have the same birthday.

Once data reaches a certain heft, patterns and correlations arise in the nature of things. Add to that the vigilantly active unconscious mind, the natural preference we have for data emotionally significant to ourselves, coupled with the natural desire to feel special, and it would be surprising if any of us had not experienced amazing precognition, at least once or twice.

I still pay attention to dreams, however. Under all their visionary, and thoroughly pleasurable experience there usually exists a quiet and useful suggestion from my unconscious.   

This is interesting.

I tend to remember my dreams vividly until about 10 minutes after waking up, would be interesting to try a dream journal. I think my unconscious likes to scare the hell out of me, more on the 'nightmare' than 'pleasant' end of the spectrum.

Last night I had a not-so-subtle dream. I was doing the dishes, then I cleaned every inch of the kitchen and was very pleased with my work... I wonder what it could mean.

Got any recommended dream reading Ted?

mrchops10:
On the contrary, Bernhard's reasoning seems very clear and correct to me.

rc:
It's a long time since I've bothered reading about it. Try J.B. Priestley's "Over the Long High Wall" and Dunne's "An Experiment with Time". They both emphasise the authors' personal types of mysticism, but they're nice sorts of mysticism.

people also are attracted to the occult for 'answers' regarding the future.  or, horiscopes, palm reading, ouiji boards, black magic, white magic (don't know the dif between the two), mysticism, etc.  these are all religious as well.

believing in evolution is as relgious as not believing in evolution.  believing in philosophy is a religion (if you want to get right down to it).  it is trusting in the ultimate knowledge of man (being supposedly far superior) than a Creator who has lived many more years than man.

the result is the same.  if laws are broken there is a result.  just like the law of gravity.  yoiu can't escape it - even if you wish - or you say, there is no God.  you still can't escape death, ressurrection, and judgement.  if you take a VERY SMALL risk now, you have nothing to lose. 

say, if you tell yourself, I will put my fate in the hands of my Creator.  I will chose (CHOOSE) to do His will according to the ten commandments (which none seem to be so far fetched as to not help youself or others anyway).  I mean, if we had a God that asked us to MURDER wouldn't that be much worse?  yet hatred is taught through racism and many other things that God never taught.  God is ultimately the fairest.

He teaches that even the branches that don't bear fruit (christians that have turned away from God) will be cut off so that others might be grafted in (possibly more humble people that are just beginning to know God)  that leaves no room for laziness.  God is not a lazy God.  just as a drill sargeant or piano teacher does not let you get away will sloppy performance.

would we respect God if He was any other way.  would we want a God that says "I'm only here for looks, I don't really do anything and I never would ask anything of you.  that would mean that I am harsh."  wohoo.  if our parents were never 'harsh' we'd have done pretty much as we pleased.  parents know what is best for their children until they are grown. we are in a growing process as physical human beings.  when we are spirit we will have MUCH more freedom. 

I think Satan is trying to thwart the blessings that will come to those men/women that choose God now.  He knows that if he can thwart them, they will lose out on an INHERITANCE!  just as Jacob sold it for a bowl of soup.  we might not realize how valuable it is until we try to redeem it (our souls) at the time we die.  then it is too late.  Christ himself said to 'seek God while He may be found. and call upon Him while He is near.'  praying and asking and petitioning God isn't to try to find out the future.  it is about understanding what to do now?  if we just do what we want (without consulting the bible) we are without guidance.  a loving Father gives us guidance - that's all.

I am wondering what it means to truly think for oneself.. and if it is truly possible ?


Also, I am thinking about a young lady, she was about 8 when I met her, who I met at some kind of concert.  For some reason she and I ended up sitting right next to each other.  We got to talking and she told me with all self-assurance that she was going to be the president.  and I believed her.

You met Hilary Clinton when she was 8? Shocked Grin

That simply isn't true.

We agree. Well, we agree that philosophy is bogus - it's bogus for the same reason as religion is, because it relied on beard scratching introspection to decide how things work <scratch beard> "Let me think...yes! The world was created by a turtle" <scratch beard> "...on a wednesday..." "Excellent Aristotle I shall tell the people"

Quote
just like the law of gravity.  yoiu can't escape it - even if you wish

I assume you mean in the sense that you have to accept it, whatever the bible says or doesn't about it. But most areas of science either are, or will be inescapable in that sense Smiley

Folk wouldn't spend so much time hoping to find that seaslugs disprove it otherwise.

Quote
- or you say, there is no God.  you still can't escape death, ressurrection, and judgement.  if you take a VERY SMALL risk now, you have nothing to lose. 

Fallacy of birfurcation. "Either there's a god or there isn't" aren't the only possibilities, especially when the consequences of each are considered.

The existence of a God or creator, doesn't necessarily lead to any conclusion that you should kill lambs, not work on Sunday, chop the end of your willy off, face a particular direction from time to time, strip naked and dance around stones or whatever else a religion might suggest it means.

It might be that the creator of the universe wants people to not believe in him or bother him and leave him in peace or suffer horribly for eternity.[Chances are a guy that good at maths and physics will be diagnosed with asperger's after all Smiley ]

It also sounds like you're suggesting you can trick God by pretending to believe he exists, or if you do geniunely believe, and it's not true then you've not lost much. Or you hope that some argument of assessing religion with the logic of what will happen if you believing or not will satisfy. Unfortunately that doesn't work.

e.g you've made wild claims that God will sort out other nations that have different religious beliefs - [the kind of comment that has often caused the more fanatical to get all outraged with each other and decide to give their God a helping hand]

How will he do that? It seems no less logical to suppose that other religions are right, and thus that their wild claims would then be true - perhaps it's wise to check what their God has planned for their non-believers before deciding the one you picked is low risk Smiley

If we are to believe in God because of some argument about the risks, then I'd say if your god is nice about it, wouldn't folk be better worshipping the one that might be more miffed?

How would Odin take it if he's true, he's not been in the papers for ages.

At the very least, I'd be more careful about assessing the risk. It's certainly true that people who have expressed belief in a particular religion or lack of it have had in the past very real consequences from that. AIUI there are around 2000 dead Americans, not to mention the others, because some loony believed that God spoke to him.

some friends just called and want to come over today at 3:00 pm.  i've got 3 hours to clean a house on crutches.  my son is sleeping STILL - and hubby and daughter are at church.  i did get the dishes done.  this should be a side show.  (just getting down the stairs takes 10 minutes).

Sick of grading papers, my Music Appreciation class sucks! Bunch of morons with attitude. Glad I have Jazz History, they are good students. Or is it the subject matter? Don't care, this will all be over soon only five more classes! Next semester is another epoch.... Roll Eyes Cool

The main thing in my head right now (and all day) is:
IneedtosleepIneedtosleepIneedtosleepIneedtosleepIneedtosleepIneedtosleep...
with Chopin's G-sharp minor Prelude acting as a looped soundtrack.
It's starting to drive me mad. Sad

Bloody essays.

Whatever the product of this fertility - it will not sound like the results of other pregnancies  Cheesy
