***** On Religion.... When Religion moves from 'as if' it were True, to 'IT IS THE TRUTH' it moves from Life Giving to Death Giving... Religion is NEVER the Truth, Reality. And... It is virtually impossible for a human to exist without a 'religion' - world view, understanding of how things work, belief system. "Fundamentalism" is the genocidal problem. (click for detail)

(the following is far from neatly written and thought out but it is an explosive advance, for me, this afternoon, in terms of my understanding of these issues)

When Religion moves from 'as if' it were True, to 'IT IS THE TRUTH' it moves from Life Giving to Death Giving

Religion is often on my mind because it is central to the single greatest evil on earth today - the slow torture genocide of my Muslim / Christian family in Palestine by Fundamentalist US christians and Israeli jews.  This is forcing me into study of Islam, Judaism, fundamentalism (christian and jewish)... that otherwise I would not undertake:

Human Religion is NEVER the Truth, Reality because we Humans are in imperfect species.

And... It is virtually impossible for a human to exist without a 'Religion' - world view, understanding of how things work, belief system.

And it is Impossible to Thrive Spiritually and Physically without a comprehensive, healthy, Holistic, Truth-Approximating Religion that enables one to keep all aspects of their needs as humans optimally met, and those of the people they influence, most importantly young-ones. (Adamant 'Blindness' to this is maybe the most fatal flaw of the Left.)

One of the greatest scientific minds, EO Wilson, is in the news recent days for his stance in an upcoming book that the world is dying from religion. I often have this thought.  But seeing this from him makes me recall that no one does not have a 'religion,' a 'belief system,' a way of 'seeing and understanding' the world. 

What may well destroy the world, and what DOES destroy any individual 'spiritually' (the only existence that matters) is not Religion, which is Indispensable and Unavoidable, but Fundamentalism, that is, when one  moves from understanding that their way of seeing the world is NOT REALITY, NOT TRUE... that the world, the Creator, is REAL, TRUE, and that our religion at best can only approximate that Truth, Reality... to the error of 'believing' their Religion to be True, Realty, and therefore 1. The Only True religion (all others being inferior) and 2. Dead, Fixed, no longer moving closer to the Truth, Reality... and probably 'Killing' anyone and anything that IS moving toward them.  Making this mistake is the False Idol that Jesus spoke of, and the 'Tribal' religions that cause so many genocidal wars.  Making this mistake is when 'religion' becomes 'dry as dust,' or, 'a social club with a thin veneer of reality,' whether this fatal mistake is made by a christian, jew, scientist or atheist, liberal or conservative.  

The US left, Liberals, are mostly Fundamentalists.  They believe they know the Truth - education, science, equality, rationality... whatever.

The US right conservatives are mostly Fundamentalists - 'christian' (they couldn't be more anti-Christlike), terrified of change, 'religiously' selfish in principal... whatever.

The one in a million Great Humans are so exactly because they never make the Deadly Error of becoming Fundamentalist in their Belief. 

All Fundamentalist make themselves less than human, sub-human, truly 'Dead,' Dead to moving closer to Reality, Truth... they surrender their 'Image' as children of the Creator by taking on their Fundamentalists beliefs as Truth, Reality, rather than Facing, Embracing that their Religion is at best a means of best living even though we can never know Truth, Reality being the imperfect beings that we are... and that their Religion can, and needs to, constantly improve, move more toward the Truth, Reality.

Fundamentalism is clinical delusion, insanity, mental illness.  It is divorce from reality, truth... that we can never know Reality, Truth.

Fundamentalism of the left, the liberals, academic elites... is destroying all life on earth materially and destroying much human goodness by ignoring the moral limits and boundaries the human needs for Health and Survival.

Fundamentalism on the right, the conservatives... is destroying life regionally - christian Fundamentalists exterminating a million in Iraq, torturing millions in Palestine, literally trying to bring about Armageddon.  muslim fundamentalists are killing thousands in Nigeria, Pakistan, Iraq, Syria.... jewish fundamentalists are driving much of the US christian Fundamentalist insanity and mid-east Islamic Fundamentalist insanity. Fundamentalists on the right are thereby moving us to global annihilation by nuclear war.

Rabbi Kook’s entire teaching was based upon the Lurianic Cabbala, the school of Jewish mysticism that dominated Judaism from the late sixteenth to the early nineteenth century.

Having read the first 1/5 of the Qur'an I find it no more primitive, quaint, ignorant, dangerous, ignorant, harmful, 'terrorizing'... (detail)

Having read the first 1/5 of the Qur'an I find it no more primitive, quaint, ignorant, dangerous, ignorant, harmful, 'terrorizing'... than the Old Testament and New Testament... except for the Humane, Advanced, Sane Moral Teachings of Jesus in Mark, Luke and Matthew (not the nonsense in John) which is somewhat carried forward in the Qur'an as well.  Both are books by fairly good, well-intended people trying, within the limits of the knowledge and science of their time, to increase the peace and well-being of humankind.  Jesus, the man, alone, according to the best scholars I can find, focused on morality, Universal Family, and effectively rejected all the mythology, mysticism, magic of the sort found in the OT and repeated in the Qur'an. I find the Qur'an less deadly in word and historical consequence than the christian bibloe because although like the NT bible Jesus is revered, in the NT it is largely for what was made up about him, 'son of god,' which was NOT carried forward in the Qur'an.

On Islam: I'm 12% into my first reading of the Qur'an, and 6 months....

On Islam - The Bible in other words, less mystical... nothing more or less frightening than that.  I'm 12% into my first reading of the Qur'an, and 6 months into some consideration of Islam, Muslims. I was 100% ignorant prior. In several more months I'll be many times more knowledgeable that I am now.  My experience of the Qur'an thus far is that it is the old and new testaments - the same attempt to inspire and cajole and frighten... people to put their consciences in charge, less mystical (which is much to my approval), but very much in keeping with what I know of the Bible as a spiritual tool to be used to accentuate conscience, goodness, justice, righteousness.  Tragically, like the Bible, it is as easy to turn into a deadly weapon of those without conscience, justice, goodness.  I find these sentences consistent with what I've seen so far:  "be good to your parents and relatives, the orphans and the needy and the neighbours who are your relatives, and the neighbours who are strangers, and the friend by your side, the traveller and your servants and subordinates. God does not surely love those who are arrogant and boastful,
Who are miserly and bid others to be so, and hide what God has given them in His largesse. We have prepared for unbelievers a shameful punishment.
Those who spend of their wealth to show off and do not believe in God and the Last Day, take Satan as companion, and how evil a companion (have they)!
Would something have befallen them if they had believed in God and the Last Day, and spent of what has been given them by God? God is fully aware of all they do."

Why Have Young People in Japan Stopped Having Sex? What is "celibacy syndrome" and why has it taken over Japan?

"Throughout the Civil War, youngsters followed brothers, fathers and even teachers into battle. They often had support roles but quickly graduated into combat roles. They were sometimes recruited at school and, when necessary, used weapons that were cut down and adapted for use by smaller people. David Baily Freemen, “Little Dave,” enlisted in the Confederate army at age 11, first accompanying his older brother as an aide-de-camp and then as a “marker” for a survey team before finally fighting against Sherman’s army. Joseph John Clem (who changed his name to John Lincoln Clem) officially enlisted in the Union army at age 10 although he had been a camp follower since age 9. Gilbert “Little Gib” Van Zandt, age 10, followed his teacher into the Ohio Volunteer Infantry where he joined his father, uncles and friends. He joined up when recruiters arrived at his school despite his mother’s pleas that he was “too young to fight.” Clarence D. McKenzie, a drummer boy for Brooklyn’s 13th Regiment was killed at Annapolis, Md., when he was only 12. His funeral, held on July 14, 1861, was attended by 3,000 people. A statute of the boy and his drum was erected to commemorate his sacrifice and is still one of the most visited graves in Brooklyn’s Greenwood cemetery today. ....." http://www.fdu.edu/newspubs/magazine/05sf/childsoldiers.html

If you were a Palestinian, no army, no airforce, no navy, under 24/7 Israeli attack / military occupation for 68 years... from the world’s 4th most powerful military... how would you, how could you, fight back, retaliate, resist? (Remember, by INTERNATIONAL LAW... you have a RIGHT, and Gandhi would say, DUTY to use any means at your disposal to resist.) 2. Were the armed Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto... Terrorists?

nd. A FB exchange today: An acquaintance RF posted to all of the Friends to their page: "Describe me as best you can. Give me the privilege of seeing myself through your eyes." I commented: "1. I totally don't know you, as you are aware, we've had nearly zero contact; 2. Strong leanings toward the Good of humanity... that like 99.9999% of those like you... will be sidelined as impractical idealism, window dressing... for all of your years." RF's reply: "James, when I finally get back to D.C. one of these days, the first thing I'm going to do is come and sit with you awhile. Thank you for such a stirring compliment." My reply: " :-) I don 't give complements, or slams. I share the Truth as I see it with those that I think may want to hear, those very few."

***** A recent experience: A Homeless cell-mate of mine, Peter, I'll call him, mid 50's clean off probation since 2008, has EVERY DAY placed numerious applicaitons for work (sh*t jobs mopping floors, anything) for 8 months now. Breaks my heart. I've watched him. Two churches come to the shelter every weekend. I told a man in each of Peter's need for work. One said, "Tell him about Jesus." The other one said, "Tell him to see me and I'll see what I can do." In effect, one said 'Tell him about Jesus,' the other said, in effect, 'Bring him to me, I'll SHOW him about Jesus.' Which one is the man of God? (Subsequently the 2nd man began producing 'real' opportunities for Peter, giving Peter his phone number (he is a mid level computer executive), staying in regular phone contact TO Peter. Peters begins his new job at a nursing home next week.)

***** nd. It is sickening. The people of Evil are winning. They are near certainly going to win... and destroy all Good. But that's the Creator's business. Ours, is to find the discipline to use EVERY SINGLE BREATH WE ARE GIVEN... to the best possible use we can put it to reduce the suffering, and increase the joy... of the neediest victims on earth that we can reach. And therein lies the only personal Peace and Joy available to the Living Soul.

***** National Lawyers Guild: "The submission sharply rejects Israeli claims of 'self-defense' related to the 2014 attack on Gaza, noting that 'both facts and law refute the Israeli and US self-defense claims,' and that 'self-defense is inapplicable to an occupying power', rejecting all attempts by Israeli government or military officials to enjoy impunity based on 'self-defense' claims."
