Re: A ROLE MODEL FOR WOMEN

Lacewing I thing these are fanciful words that don't really clearly express much. Isn't everything that a person sees, thinks, feels, experiences filtered through the limits of human perspective? Yes it is their perspective but is that a human perspective. Is an interpretation the real thing. If eve...

Re: A ROLE MODEL FOR WOMEN

From "The Red Virgin": A Poem of Simone Weil by Stephanie Strickland which won the Brittingham Prize in Poetry in 1993. Do you have any direct answers to the questions I posed to you, Nick? Well, the BODY becomes dust. What can you really understand of "essence" beyond what you (or anyone) imagine/...

Re: A ROLE MODEL FOR WOMEN

There is no reason to accuse anyone of anything. I believe in ideals. I can wonder what the ideal Man is and realize that it isn't me. It inspires humility and the desire to better oneself. The point is that I may not know what the ideal Man is but it doesn't stop me from contemplating what it is a...

Re: A ROLE MODEL FOR WOMEN

Lacewing Haven't you (many times) identified what these supposed ideals are, and pointed out to people that they are NOT that? I really haven’t written of ideals. I have written about the human condition described by Plato as living in a cave attached to the shadows on the wall unable to turn toward...

Re: A ROLE MODEL FOR WOMEN

the ideal role model for men and women You clearly are obsessed with that idea, perhaps so that you can accuse people of being outside of their role...or not aspiring to their role. I think roles are fantasy... we make them up... we play them out... and we can change them. So, it appears to me that...

Re: "Free will was given to man by god." Attempt 2.

Genesis 2: 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.” Obviously Man has free will to choose but at the same time he doesn't. Why? I...

Re: A ROLE MODEL FOR WOMEN

Who is cutting off the feminine more: men or the feminists? Not really sure what difference that makes. Who has been around longer? My issue is with MEN telling WOMEN that they are inferior. That has been going on for a very long time. I see feminism as an outcome of that distortion and aggression....

Re: A ROLE MODEL FOR WOMEN

Lacewing They run everyone into the ground with such a lop-sided agenda and unchecked war-like mentality, because it ignores all the balancing and insightful and healing skills and value that women offer from their own abilities. How hateful, that men would cut off the feminine...subdue it and bury ...

Re: A ROLE MODEL FOR WOMEN

Dachshund (1) Yes, Simone Weil had a very special emotional quality; namely, she was a neurotic, borderline psychotic - flake. She died quite young, if I recall, on account of her own radical stupidity. Her prose was riddled with religious delusions/mysticism and socialist ideology- pure jibberish. ...

Re: A ROLE MODEL FOR WOMEN

Feminism set a very bad example for women. The instigators of the movement in the academy were very bitter and twisted, screwed up human beings.And as for the countless reams of gender feminist theory they produced, the verdict of empirical science today is that it was all BULLSHIT, that is, gender...

Re: "Free will was given to man by god."

So what is the light? Can it be explained in a manner science could become open to? On the one hand, one could say it's "photons." Or "energy." But that doesn't really tell us much about its metaphorical or Biblical significance, which is surely additional to that. There, "light" represents things ...
