A little night discussion upon the nature of god.

brendhain

Brendhain
Let me tell you about one of the mental simulations that I do. It will extend my explanation about my views/relationship with god. I was just doing this again a moment ago and thought to tell you! As you know I am an Agnostic-Atheist, which means that I ‘think’ and know that I don’t know with 100% certainty that there is no god; but I fully lack any ‘belief’ in a god.
So although I have no belief, my rational mind says that there is always that possibility. So I think about how, if there were a god then what would be My reality. How could I analyse and understand a possible reality where there Was a god. And I have a ‘reality’ I get into (simulate that perspective). And have reached a great understanding of my relationship with that possible god. My view of gods nature and explanations…

What is Wrong with Kids these days……

They are stressed out of their minds and they never learn self-soothing because the parents soothe their every mood. Like a plant that has grown tied to a support. If it never has to support itself then it can’t hold its own (weight).   These kids are in a constant alert mode. They suffer from mass insecurities because they never do anything for themselves, due to the parents seeing after the kid’s every need. Their life offers them no real challenges from which they can learn how to accomplish tasks requiring  longer term efforts. All of these such tasks are performed by the patents in their excessive serving to the kids . The parents tend to also underestimate the age appropriate challenges their children are capable of doing. Kids need to attempt these things so they learn to struggle against failures, as well as experience the feeling of accomplishment.  They don’t know failure because they never fail the easy tasks their parents allow them to try because the tasks are appropriate for a child 25%-50% younger than they are. So they end up both insecure and over confident.  A lovely combination for their life quality and for those around them!!! Face with stuck-out tongue and winking eye

The Boom

Baby Boomers(40-talister) rallied around the slogan “Don’t Trust ANYONE Over 30!” They are now over 60 and they Expect us to trust them to guide us into the future!! After They created “our” crime ridden, polluted, decaying infrastructure and rising poverty and mental illness society!! They will spend all of their money(much of which they inherited from Their Parents) and will pass down very little wealth as they try desperately to deny the fact that they are old and their ideals failed! And when their money runs out they will be coming at us to get more of our pay check to go to their pension money and medical spending(which they did nothing but cut while they were young and health). They will repeat what their parents told them (and why They didn’t like people over 30)—“Stop your bitching about freedom and get a job!!”

I am a Generation X (a late 60-talister) and have worked my way through university and never been on unemployment benefits. It is us, GenXers, who are going to take the brunt of the paying for the Baby Boomers multiple decade retirement since we will be at the peak of our income earning level of our life. This will be taken from us, while the Boomers cut taxes/benefits during their peak earning period so they could spend more money on themselves enjoying life. 70 and 80 talister, unfortunately, have high levels of unemployment and student loan debt (because the Boomers made 70-80 talister “borrow money” for education, while Boomers got it free or nearly free). As to the 50 talister– they are in the middle and so are a blending of Boomer mentality and Generation X.

Even worse, my friend, Anyone of our age who is pouring all of their money and effort into housing is going to be in for a Huge surprise when the Boomers give us their Last Fuck You. When they do go to the great unknown, with their middle fingers in the air pointed at us, housing prices will collapse in their wake!! As the Biggest Consumerism Generation of all times is also the biggest Home Owner Generation of all time and when they depart the market will be flooded with their homes and prices will collapse! Cheap Housing for All!! Unless, they leave with their houses in ruin…………..

humm, sounds like a banking crisis in the horizon!! And we will Not bail them out again!! F*ck that!! I ain’t paying for the bankers’ shortsightedness plus I am not paying those Boomers for their short sighted speculative investments, either.

I woke in a great mood and the feeling has continued throughout the day! Had a great time on my Fender!

I don’t paint the facts with emotions. I have my emotions and see them for what they are and enjoy them very much! But The Truth is The Truth. And we must make true and lasting change to human experience.

 

 

Mistake of the Day!

Hi Brendhain. (me initiating a conversation)

Brendhain

I am occupied at the moment, Busy day today!

No problem. Ttyl

Jyvlo Yipistage

Did u recently write a review of Peter Rollins new book ‘The Idolatry of God’?

Brendhain

??????

Jyvlo Yipistage

Hahahaha!! There’s a review on amazon – talks about zombies

Brendhain

Can you send me the link?

Jyvlo Yipistage

http://www.amazon.com/dp/1451609027/ref=as_li_ss_til?tag=peteroll-20&camp=0&creative=0&linkCode=as4&creativeASIN=1451609027&adid=04XHTDFPWXQAFS6SC8YM

The Idolatry of God: Breaking Our Addiction to Certainty and Satisfaction

http://www.amazon.com

You can’t be satisfied. Life is difficult. You don’t know the secret. Whether readers are devout believers or distant seekers, The Idolatry of God shows that we must lay down our certainties and honestly admit our doubts to identify with Jesus. Rollins purposely upsets fundamentalist …

Jyvlo Yipistage

Just scroll down. Its the third review I think.

——Thursday 2:26am

Jyvlo Yipistage

Uh u know I was kidding right? It was just ironic to see the same analogy u had used.

Brendhain

Sorry for the slow reply. I was out on the town last night.

Tht was funny(zombies)! Nice to know tht I am not the only one who notices the way some people are!

I am doing a blog. I am taking dialogues tht I have with friends and putting them up. Of coarse, names and other details will be twisted around so as to throw people off as to who the ‘other’ people are. I put up the dialogue we had about my relationship with god. Can you read it and tell me if you are cool with it?! If there is anything specific about it you are unhappy with then tell me so I can understand how you see it! Go to: Brendhain.com

Jyvlo Yipistage

A lil heads up that our conversation was going to be public would have been nice. Haven’t had a chance to look at it yet

Brendhain

I made changes so i isn’t identifiable. Sorry for not telling you first. I thought we had such a great conversation and I have wanted to document conversations that I have with people. the idea is mainly to collect these conversations.

I hope you can over look that I din’t tell you first. If you object to anything then let me know. I will be happy to adjust things so that you are happy with it! My aim is for the other people in the dialoques to be unidentifiable. Your “name” in it was fun! I took “the reasonable believer” translated it into Greek and then wrote it phonetically in a mix of Swedish, English and French pronunciation rules! I hope you see the name as a complement, because that was my indent!

Jyvlo Yipistage

I didn’t read through it in detail. The only thing I object to is what I assumed to be a conversation between two friends being made into a public forum..

Brendhain

so it offends a principle tht you have. as apoosed to the content itself offending you?!

Jyvlo Yipistage

Yeah

Brendhain

For me, Principles are a trap. Even you have said that no one hasn’t broken at least one of the 10 commandmenst. Of the billions of christians who have ever lived (perhaps excluding JC!) no one has ever been able to follow the basic 10 rules handed down thru from the Jews. So, makes one think that perhaps these are actually Guiding Rules to follow tht will get you thru most all situations in life. Then there is the 1-5% of the time that you have to make another choice. Sometimes a truely harmless lie can spare someone great needless pain. So you hold the truth inside of you and You take the pain of the lie. If shooting that crazy idiot who shot 20 kids would have spared those children then clearly killing can be the best choice. Think about the wars in the old testament when god clearly helped in the killing. Principles are not universal. In this case, I am using our dialogue (which I respect and cherish) to explain my personal philosphy. It was a common method in Ancent Greece to write in Dialogues. That is all that Plato/Socrates did. Our conversations look like and sound like a dialogue written by Plato, only with modern language and references. I am a philosopher. I have a degree in it. What you hear from me in our conversations is My Philosophy. I am heavily influenced by Plato/Socrates and I philosophize in a Dialogue form. I am publishing my philosophy and you help me to think in a special way. You are very helpful to me! I like the way I think when we talk! And we are so good at it.:-) If you pay attention to us talking to each other then you will see how wonderful and open our conversations are. We are a great example to others! Look how we handle/communicate our “conflct/missunderstanding” about me not showing you appreciation and attention in the right way. That is brilliant! It is so good it almost seems fake!! When I read it, it seems so contrived! But is was spontaneous between the two of us! Very Cool! there is nothing wrong with sharing us as an example of how people can communicate!

Brendhain

I have been nagged by lots of people, including 2 Ivy league professors!! (sic) That I should write a book. And I started but it was about the past and I don’t want to write about the past. I want to write about The Now. If the past comes up then that is natural and expected. I didn’t know where to start, I study and think about so much it is insane! Then I realized that I am writing my philosophy every day on the internet. I didn’t know how to collect it all then I ran into WordPress.com and I figure it out. That was 2 or 3 months ago. I didn’t feel inspired to actually get off my ass and figure out how to do it. I don’t like learning new stuff on the computer. I am very unpracticed……… Then we had our conversation the other day and when I reread it the next day I was inspired. So I acted on it! That is where I am coming from. If you want then I will change the dialogue that comes from you but my content is my philosophy and I would appreciate being able to at least publish my part of the discussions so I can record my philosophy. Now how is that for an honest answer?! ;-p

Jyvlo Yipistage

Though not by ivy league professors, I too have been told I should write a book. I don’t mind you including what I say in your blog…now that I know about it…It pisses me off that you would do it without first asking me. My silence over the last couple of hours has been becuase I don’t like to discuss things when I’m angry. During that time, I reflected on some things you and I have discussed such as no one living up to principles all the time as you also mentioned. So I won’t hold you to that expectation of always doing things 100%. You must also realize that doesn’t eliminate consequences that naturally arise from such situations such as my anger and feeling somewhat betrayed in a sense. So anyway, feel free to include whatever I say as long as you don’t change it in ANY way. They are my words. And why would I be pissed off by the content?? As I said, I didn’t read it in detail…should I? Did you make significant changes to it? Or were you referring to the content of the conversation you had prior to ours with someone else?

Brendhain

I appreciate the energy it takes from you to deal with the effects of my error. I am sorry that you are having to deal with anger. I haven’t told any of my friends (except Negus Maximums and Plato) I made nearly zero changes to our dialogue. I make little changes so it is unclear as to who you are. Naturally I will adjust or omit anything that shouldn’t be public. do you want to proof read all of the ones from our discussion before I post them?! Plus, I can turn off the comment function. I planned to leave it on unless it attracts idiots, in which case I would turn off all “comment” functions on All of my dialogues. I really don’t care what an asshole who is so unhappy in his life that he/she has to spread their hate out to other people. I am happy to help someone like that but I am not going to put up with his crap, and that goes for his bitch wife, too!

Oh, I will do spell check. Don’t worry, mine requires so much more correction than yours does!! ;-p

Jyvlo Yipistage

Spell check is good. If you are taking directly from our conversations I see no need to proofread or approve prior to publishing. Just let me know when u do post one of our talks. Id like to view comments.

Adjusting or omitting personal details is good too

Jyvlo Yipistage

..sounds like someone in particular hurt u pretty bad..

Brendhain

from what?! the way Negus Maximus (NM) and I were talking?

Jyvlo Yipistage

No I didn’t really read that. Barely skimmed it. I meant your remark about the comment function on your blog

I prob misinterpreted it. Nevermind.

Brendhain

No! I meant idiots on the internet, Trolls out Trolling on the internet just making provocateur statements and just to upset other people’s fun. Being provocative with interesting discussions for a positive effect is welcome but I have little patience for Trolls(bullies/mobbare). If they want to take me on then they will need to invite me over to their site. I am more than happy to give them Home Court Advantage because that will be the only advantage they will have so I might as well allow them to have at least that much protection!! Any and All subject areas are welcome! I would love to learn a shit load more about a new subject but they should know that within a day I will know enough so that I can toy with them. And if we are still going at it after a week then they can Know that I am just Toying With Them!

Jyvlo Yipistage

Hm. Very comforting since we’ve been batting this subject around for idk.. Couple months at least.

Enjoy the rest of your evening. I’ve got some things I need to take care of.

Brendhain

You have really helped me see religion in a different light! I don’t feel like we are battling! We are exploring the idea of spiritualality not filled with hypocracy as I always run into. You are the example of how christians should be! It isn’t an easy life. No life is easy. I know that intimately. But is serves a positive purpose in your life. Isn’t that what the good stuff in life does?! You are caring and compassionate for others. You grant others your same right to have Your perspective so they get to enjoy Theirs un-attacked. That is very cool! That is what Jesus would Do! So I am happy with that. He was a great teacher. Slow down the negative emotions and em-brass joy! I teach the same! He had some other good things to say, too!

I have always loved one part of the Old Testament when it says that It is better to spill your seed on the belly of a whore than to spill it on the ground! I have never done that but it is good to know that I have that option and the Big G would be cool with that!! ;-p

Jyvlo Yipistage

I said BATTING not batt-L-ing! And omg u def have an interesting way of using scripture to your own benefit!! Lol ill have to dig that verse up as I can’t recall the exact wording

Brendhain

Oh, My dear. I was always bored out of my mind during church each Sunday but how my little ears did perk up when that subject came around!! that one and one about how it was bad to “Have Sex with Yourself”! I couldn’t figure out how to do that but I was very excited that it was an option!! ;-p Turned out that I had already been doing it for years. Big disapppointment!

Jyvlo Yipistage

HAHAHAHAHA!!

Brendhain

True story! I was 11 or 12.

Brendhain

Lets hope twelve!! The church was a sex den to me, but not in the unfortunate way most people think of it now a days. I was defending the churches against some of my brother’s anger. They had my grandfather paying out 30% of his income to the church in the end. To me he was a kind and extremely generous to everyone kind of a man. But he must have been carrying something to have given him all of that guilt. he worked until he was 86 as a lawyer in NYC. Rediculous amount of money. Plus, one of My Brother’s ex girlfriends went church crazy after pressure from her family. Crazies!

Brendhain

I must sleep! Good evening to you, My Fair Lady!

Jyvlo Yipistage

The emotional manipulation and guilt-inducing messages of some churches are ridiculous. Some institutionalized churches prey upon people when they are at their lowest points in life. Its reprehensible. Its the total opposite of Jesus’ teachings. It’s my belief based on examples in scripture that church was never meant to be institutionalized with professional full-time pastors. It was meant rather, to be an organic gathering of believers who used their natural abilities to assist one another with life’s hardships.

Individuals will do lots of strange things to alleviate their own personal guilt. The sad thing is that most guilt is based upon principles or guidelines or a perceived standard one feels they have to live up to. As you said earlier, remove that standard of behavior and the guilt disappears. Life is hard enough without people and institutions preying upon each other and being totally self-serving.

I know you are probably in bed now, but I had the opportunity to respond in a more in-depth way than I normal and other responsibilities. btw The ‘My Fair Lady’ reference was not lost on me. Could be taken in a variety of ways – compliment or patronization.

——-Today 9:06am

Brendhain

It is your choice to interpret me how you will!

Brendhain

I trust you!

Brendhain

Plus, what do you think about Your name I gave you?!

Jyvlo Yipistage

Reasonable believer? I like it.. Lots. Isaiah 1:18 says ‘come now let us reason together…’ Matthew 22:37 says Jesus said to him, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’

The Birth of Negus Maximums

What do you mean, last day at the hotel?!

Negus Maximums

well im moving to the head office on monday

Brendhain

Okay. Just be glad that you are losing involvement with her. Did you two fuck?

Negus Maximums

no

dude her trying to ignore everything and act like nothing ever happened pisses me off

why

Brendhain

Fuck the bitch!! She was using you to ‘test’ herself to see if she could be unfaithful to her husband. Women can be dumb bitches (as opposed to men who can be Assholes) and do shit like that. Just be glad you are getting away from her and the next time you have a married woman attracted to you and trying to get a romance going with you then you need to remind her that she is married and tell her to back off.  If you think it is okay to poach another man’s wife then you think that it will be fine for me to poach your wife when you get one?  Can you make sure to marry a tall thin redhead for me?!  😉

Negus Maximums

hahahaha right as always

Negus Maximums

im going corporate!

Brendhain

That is very cool! Pay attention while you are there. What will you be doing there?

Negus Maximums

marketing man

there is a girl in my programme, she is in Manchester too..she says nobody does anything, especially the marketing dept haha

so good opportunity to show myself

Brendhain

Yeah!! Doing nothing is your specialty! You do Nothing better than anyone I know, well, except maybe me!!

Negus Maximums

hey hey hey..it takes years of perfection

we are still more intelligent than most so its all good

Brendhain

People under estimate how difficult it is to do absolutely the minimum required effort each and every day!! That takes skill! Any idiot can ‘take it easy’ one day. But to have that as a lifestyle takes skills, intelligence, and determination;  or a just a bunch of weed!

Negus Maximums

i got a 4 out of 5 on my annual review by my GM..i have been doing literally FUCK ALL for 6 months…90% of the people in the company get a 3…haha

Brendhain

You don’t have to know anything or do anything, just look like you know what you are doing and then get other people to do it for you!!

Negus Maximums

haha thats the best advice I have ever received..or maybe the one i like most

Brendhain

Just be sure to give that person doing your work praise for their good work and help. Praise them in front of everyone else. Everyone will be focusing upon how nice you are and what a good job the other person did that no one will notice that you didn’t do anything!!

Negus Maximums

hahaha I bet thats hows it done up there..i just have to find a sheep to do it for me now

I have a beard now, im refusing to shave it..i hope its not a problem

http://www.youtube.com/missing

Brendhain

First, you have to avoid someone using you as their sheep!! Second, don’t find a sheep to do you are work. Find someone who is very capable but is being unnoticed for his/her abilities. ‘Cultivate’ this person.

Negus Maximums

how do i avoid being used as a sheep?

Brendhain

I’ll check out the song later, I’m on my phone and the sound ain’t great. I’d shave the beard or at the very least, trim it every day like a metro sexual (aka A Wantabe Fag)

Negus Maximums

but the beard looks sexy and makes me look like a bad boy…i really do not want to shave it.

Don’t think anyone would care

Brendhain

Just keep it trimmed tight! You can’t run around HQ looking like a French Resistancet!!

Negus Maximums

there are so many hot bitches there you would die!

i swear to god..MILF heaven

Brendhain

How long will you be there?

Negus Maximums

7 months dude

you have to come here during the summer when they are all wearing high heels and skirts…by then I will get to know them all and invite them to a BBQ party in my backyard…shiiiiiiiiiiit you gotta be there

Brendhain

If you are there for 7 months, Then you have 6 months to be nice, compliment, and softly flirt with the milfs and 1 month to fuck as many of them as you can!!

I don’t know what my summer is going to be like. I am looking to go to the states but possibly ireland… If I do ireland then I can do uk, too

Negus Maximums

i highly doubt it will take 6 months for them to put out..haha

divide that by 2 and then we’re talking

Brendhain

If you run in and fuck one right away then that will be the ONE you fuck. No one else will want to fuck the office Man Whore.  If you flirt with them all and set them up for the pickings then you can fuck a bunch of them during the last month because ‘this is your last chance before you leave London’. 😉 You can either run and grab a girl and fuck her or casually walk to the ladies and fuck them all!

Negus Maximums

fair enough

I didnt see it from that point of view!

MISSING

Negus Maximums

thats the ultimate milf in the company

check it out when u can

Brendhain

She either sucks in bed or is a complete slut in bed!! Nice!!

Negus Maximums

you’re probably right haha Sharon Cardinal  is so fucking hot

MISSING

Negus Maximums

haha, im sure you would enjoy teaching her some skills in bed

Negus Maximums

U smoking ?

Brendhain

yeah

why?

Negus Maximums

It would be nice to smoke now too

Brendhain

I figured out what I have been doing wrong with women. I was falling in love with anyone who showed me attention at the right time in my life. Like most people, they are broken in some way. Depressive was my flavor of choice. As I was fixing myself, I tried to fix them, too. Now I feel fixed enough to function well and looking for a woman. I realize what to do, find a woman who isn’t broken. I am dating a woman/tjej who had a good healthy upbringing. She is intelligent (master’s in psychology  and does academic research as part of her job!!). I need that. But the important part is that she had a healthy upbringing and is happy. Life is much easier with This kind of woman. It will have its weird moments but in 2 months she hasn’t shown any, yet. Look for a girl who had a healthy upbringing, is happy and has a sweet body. Like that delightful Maggie! If not her then look for ones like her. They are the Ones you should be attracted to.

Negus Maximums

haha

wtf is this?!

Brendhain

my observations and recommendations

Negus Maximums

i laughed when i read it

Brendhain

good stuff!

Negus Maximums

u sir are a legend

thanks but i dont need no fucking girls

i like being by myself

Brendhain

You are such a faggot!

Negus Maximums

that im not

im content with being alone

thats all

Brendhain

Are you developing yourself or are you stuck in a spår?

Negus Maximums

probably a bit of both

but its fine

Brendhain

Move forward or fuck some pussy! If you are in a rut then just starting asking girls out for coffee. The worst thing is they will say no. Second worst is that you’ll be bored talking to some dumb bitch for an hour and you will do your signature blow offs when the conversation is over!

Negus Maximums

the thing is i dont feel like it honestly

weird i know

Brendhain

But are you in a rut?

Negus Maximums

i might be

Brendhain

No shit! You will be in that rut until you stop being in it. So start getting out of it Now. Just start asking random chicks. Pick nice ones a little below you are usual quality standards and just talk to them for an hour. If they are interesting and had a positive child hood that they carry with them then get to know them. And try to understand their perspective. So you can understand how they think and you can think like they do. Chicks fuckin totally dig it!! It is my flirting technique! Do you have something better to do with your time when you are not feeling sorry for you areself little boy?!

Negus Maximums

i actually dont have much time for anything but work!

10:33pm

Brendhain

Corporate faggot!!

Negus Maximums

haha i know man

Brendhain

I am ordering a medium and a large. The medium is going to be red and so is the large. I’m keeping the one that fits me best and you can have the other!

Negus Maximums

Negus Maximums

Brendhain

Order them as I described and I will pay for it. You get the one I don’t want. Or you can also order you areself a large but I am not paying for it. I have ordered from Cafe Press from the states. They are a Kentucky company!! Very cool. Kentucky with an edge, like me. They ship to Europe. I had to pay import fees and taxes. The fee was twice the taxes!! Don’t know if you would pay it in the UK. Cool shit but they have American wide cut T shirts for the most. Some I was able to get slimmer euro cut. I got Large ones and they are just too big and loose. So I want to try the mediums. They are probably slim cut for europeans when you buy from the UK site. But I don’t know and there is only one option.

Negus Maximums

is this the one you want?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sports-Kenny-Powers-T-Shirt-CafePress/dp/B004ETYAOA/ref=sr_1_9?s=clothing&ie=UTF8&qid=1340826778&sr=1-9

Brendhain

Red

Negus Maximums

2 reds, 1 medium 1 large

Brendhain

Correct, Sir!

Negus Maximums

ok i’ll pick them up for u

then we can wear them together and hold hands

Brendhain

Cool! But we only wear them one day at the same time. Otherwise we don’t call each other up and coordinate our cloths. We are not chicks!! Although I am starting the think that you are!

Negus Maximums

Brendhain

Alright, get black little girl!!

Negus Maximums

Brendhain

Yes, little girl. You are delightful with clothing! That dark broody look. You would be a bull dyke if you had tits but you are way too cute for that!

Brendhain

ok

Negus Maximums

Hello! First I must just say that it’s incredibly flattering to have gotten such a fine letter. I was really happy!

And then I have to apologize for a late reply.  I didn’t see BEFORE today.

It is quite true, I have a very fun job and wonderful colleagues so I laugh and smile every day. However, one (or rather I) gets very engrossed in everything when you work, so therefore I can not say I remember you directly like that but of coarse we can get together if you are in Stockholm. I am not really “close to”  Johanna and Luke so you can arrange everything

Caroline

Brendhain

Notice how much she liked you are comment about her having fun at work!!!

I am the master!

Negus Maximums

haha

i knew you would say that!

yes you are

shall I elaborate on her work in my reply sensei>?

Brendhain

if you do mention it then just do it lightly, “yeah you really look you are fun. I was nervous about contacting you because I am sure that you get lots of attention from the male passangers”

Negus Maximums

okay

well the thing is i dont want my reply to sort of end the conversation until we meet

so i have to make it good

Brendhain

then you make a suggestion as to when Johanna, Luke, you and her can get together. and after you write that then you simply write to her and ask her other questions. What do you do when you are not flying, etc

Negus Maximums

do u spit or swallow  etc

i get you

Brendhain

exactly!

Negus Maximums

haha

man she’s hot

let me send u a pic

fuck i cant access her photos

Negus Maximums

yo

remember that numeric and verbal reasoning you and I did before i joined the program?

Brendhain

?????

Negus Maximums

i have to do it again!

what if they see a difference now?!!?

Brendhain

When do you take the test?

Negus Maximums

whenever before the 6th

its because they are offering me a new position and now im nervous that there is going to be a huge difference on the numerical test compared to the 1 we did together

Brendhain

On sunday I can coach you on how to think when anwering. I am busy right now but free sunday afternoon

Negus Maximums

can u help me on sunday?

anytime u can

as long as its fairly similar to the first time i did it

Negus Maximums

i didnt need this shit now im not feeling well as i have stomache cramps..spent a whole day in hospital and now my job depends on this test

Negus Maximums

By the way, are there any interesting positions with your friend at Ratheon? I still might be moving home in Oct.

Brendhain

Fuck! Stomache cramps?! Not cool! What are they going to do about them? As to the job

Apply! I don’t know what hiring they have done but apply.

I’ll coach you how to think while you take the test. If you understand me then you will be able to have the same core values but you have developed more. It’ll take an hour or so on sunday.

Negus Maximums

i need to do more tests, will keep you posted

i have applied for Ratheon

but regarding this test for my current work, its a numerical test, you cant coach me for that! thats the one im nervous for plus i am high on meds and cant think properly

verbal reasoning is cool but numerical fuckin test is hard….its the same one that we have done together and i dont know why i have to do it again but im nervous that they will see the difference now between the scores

September.MISSING

Brendhain

Do you work this week

Negus Maximums

It depends on how I feel, why?

Brendhain

What do you mean ‘how you feel’? Have you been sick?

Negus Maximums

Well my loin and groin areas are sore, but I haven’t been sick…its just an uncomfortable feeling that fucks with your head

Brendhain

Good that you are on the meds. Go to work as usual and act (not sick) but messed up in the head. Easily distracted and as if you have a hard time concentrating. Make sure bosses see you this way and that everyone knows you are fuzzy in the head. Then, when you take the test, hopefully you do well enough to pass it but if you don’t score as high then you can laugh about it and blame the meds. If you passed then they won’t bother and have you retake it. If you fail it then they may let you retake it, then you are fucked!!

Negus Maximums

I’m going to ask on monday why I have to redo it. Maybe my boss doesn;t know that I have already done this test.

Brendhain

Don’t ask why you have to redo it. Ask if its the same test that you already took. They  will likely volunteer the info as to why you retake it. If not then it will seem more natural when you do ask.

Negus Maximums

Yea, will do

Brendhain

Are we talking today or do you know what to do with acting sick and taking the test?

Negus Maximums

I am not acting sick, I am sick!

Don’t worry but you can’t really help me with the test as its numerical..it sucks

But I appreciate it

Brendhain

by “acting sick” I just mean that for the next couple of days act kind of absent minded and out of it at work so that when you take the test if your math score isn’t high then you can blame the meds

Negus Maximums

Yeah that’s what I will do

No other option really

Brendhain

When do you plan to take it?

Negus Maximums

Any time before end of Tuesday

Don’t know yet

Brendhain

Lets talk before so I can coach you on the personality questions.

Negus Maximums

There are none

Just verbal reasoning which I’m good at and numerical

Brendhain

What do you mean? Is it only a math test.

Okay, verbal reasoning too.

Negus Maximums

Yes

Brendhain

I think you would have more use of it than me!!

Negus Maximums

fuck, 2000kr on ebay thats not bad at all.

So many cool distortions and delay effects..love it

Tuesday

Negus Maximums

yo!

are u coming out for a drink next friday?

Brendhain

is that the plan? what time?

Negus Maximums

there is no plan yet

i land 11 pm

and am home for 48

all the family is there and shit i gotta spend some time with them too

but me and BooBoo are thinking going out around 12.30-1am out for a drink

and then saturday night out too

Brendhain

Where on friday? a bar or a club?

Negus Maximums

knowing Luke, we will probably go to more than one place

but taking it easy on friday

Brendhain

I am cool going out but just want to know if I am going to be out watching you two just stand with drinks in your hands

Negus Maximums

and then little bit more on saturday

Brendhain

so it is clubs!

Negus Maximums

hahaa

yeaaa boiiiiiiiiiiiii

it is us that need to watch your ass

you got into a dance off with some faggot at park last time

BooBoo had to push him away

haha

Brendhain

Luke pushed him away, then the cops took  him away a couple hours later!

Negus Maximums

i dont remember Luke being there

it was BooBoo

Brendhain

It was Luke

Negus Maximums

u were wasted what do u know

haha

Brendhain

Is wasn’t the same night that I walked up and kissed that 24 year old?  That was so funny how she just went limp when I got close and she just let me kiss here. We were looking at each other for the past 30 min!  then 10 minutes later when I went back for another kiss and she ran like a little girl wanting to be chased.  Fuck that!  I don’t chase girls, so when she turned around and saw that I wasn’t chasing her and she looked at me. I just lifted my hand up and used the “come to me” one finger action and she walked straight up to me and stuck her tongue in my mouth!

Negus Maximums

She was hot

maybe u can pimp some bitches on fri or sat

many of them are DTF

Brendhain

dtf?¨

Negus Maximums

down to fuck

Brendhain

getting fucked is not an issue yet for me, YET!

I am not “looking to party” with some drunk chick!

Negus Maximums

haha

it would be nice to bring someone to your place

can you work your psychology bullshit on someone and make it happen?

Brendhain

I can do anything I set my mind and will to my friend. So can you. Somethings simply take longer than other things.  I would be happy to have you as My Wingman! But you will have to do what I say and behave as I tell you. Women like you because anyone can look at you and see your heart. You are so open to other people. But you are closed to yourself. There are two things to be done about that. First you are going to have to change your behaviour. The whole time I will be working on your head. You must do and what I tell you. I welcome you to question why you have to do it and I will explain it to you so you understand. Regardless if you agree or not, you must still do it. You are a good guy and a great kid. Don’t forget that the best part about being a man is not the power that comes with it, although that is wonderful when you can control and guide that power. But the best part of being a Man is that you can still act like a boy sometimes, too! You missed out on socialization during that time because of your life situation from 10 onward. You are awkward because you didn’t get to be a kid! So I will help you play like a kid without this stupid shit like telling a beautiful and lovely cousin suffering from some eating disorder to “Next time, Keep to your own plate !” instead of “I am looking forward to the next time I see your pretty smile! ” You dumb, Idiot! You never learned that that is not funny. I would have been funny as a joke you would tell me and say that “When I walked away I thought to myself ‘Next time, Keep to your own plate’!” Now that would be just as funny and you wouldn’t have insulted a beautiful and lovely girl with body image issues. fuckin’ Idiot!

YOU WILL FOLLOW MY ORDERS!

Negus Maximums

hahahahahahah

you are a fucking legend

whatever my behaviour is , Bridget messaged me on NY;’s eve and told me that we should try again when i move home basically

so i cant be all that bad!

u really need to get skype so that we can talk, its easier that way

i have my own flat now and shit

Brendhain

You have your own shit!?! Fantastic!! It is like Tom Hanks in that movie they played Chop Sticks on the giant floor pad piano. BIG!  That is what is must be like. Are your pajamas Blue? I hope they have built in feet with pads on the bottoms so you can walk around without wearing them out??!!

Brendhain

Are you using the headphones? If not then bring them with you. I am loving the guitar game but would like to try with headphones. If you are using them then cool I can use my Bose from the computer! I just thought about that!

Negus Maximums

my pad is p.i.m.p.

dont be a fuckin stranger

yeah i’ll bring you you are headphones no probs

Brendhain

As to the girl, if you start hanging around with her and the three of us mix then I can play with her head and see what is going on. It might not be what you think (her behavior) I could look in her head and see what it is. You don’t need to be with someone who has a psycho disorder!!!  Two in a couple shouldn’t have that. One of you have to be rational.  But she may not be one of those. Some of them have simple problems.

Negus Maximums

i dont think her problem is simple

she wont be in sweden next month

she is going to the Keys with her family i think

dude, any girl been acting like this for 3 yrs is NOT a small problem

Brendhain

But that just reinformces what I wrote to you. Women see you for who you really are but you keep showing them this awkward Dickhead! We need to fix that so you can get some hot, classy and intelligent Croatian chick! On the dating sites there are a bunch of them 38 to 44 who were trying to pick me up. Some were Very fucking hot. The last one I told her “You are one Hot Mamma!! I would be so happy if the mother of my children was as hot as you are! ”  She wrote back “Thank you for the complements!” She was hot and 43, thin legs, tall and nice looking tits (there is a pic in a bikini– HOT). You need to get one of those who is 29-32 who will end up looking like a bunch of these older women I am seeing. I can tell you what women will look like in 10-15 years after they kicked out kids and aged a bit. It is like sorcery!

Negus Maximums

im not fucking awkward!

im straight forward

are you still on the same site?

dude, at the moment i wouldnt score in a brothel

dry spell!!!!

we need to talk more often wtf

i miss master yoda

Brendhain

It isn’t the behavior that I mean by simple problem. Yes, 3 years is an issue as to that! I am talking about what is behind the behavior! That might not be too complex or deep. Some people need just a little nudge. I can do this by convincing them of 1, or maybe a few; fact(s). When they accept these facts then the subconscious mind will begin to process their reality differently. It is amazing the turn around that Some people can have with this method. In December I just pointed out to a girl that she was having certain behavior (getting worked up over stuff). I then explained that it doesn’t do her any good–gave her some direct examples as to why (things she said early in our conversation). I explained that there was no need or benefit from her doing this. She agreed to all of that. I then told her how to react when she starts to feel herself thinking on the way to getting worked up. She said “yes, I try to Push those away”. So I go on, don’t push them away, that gives them energy. Like if you were leaning against a wall, if I take the wall away then what would happen. “I’d fall over”. Yes, that is the energy you are putting into these negative/useless/damaging thoughts. Don’t give it that energy. Just notice that you are thinking that way. After you learn how to catch yourself thinking like that, you will realize how funny it is that you think that way. It is funny because it is completely useless. As you get better at spotting these thoughts, you will learn to see the thought coming before you even have the thought. At which point you can choose to either have the thought or not. If you keep rejecting to have the thought, then your mind will start de-emphasing that thought pattern. Or you could just stop thinking that way from now on because you know that it is useless to think that way and it is a silly idea to even bother thinking like that. I talked with her a week later and she hadn’t worked herself up in the week since she left my office. It is now over a month later. Going well!  She isn’t cured but if her partner knew how to do what I did then she would slowly eliminate that behavior from her “personality”. It isn’t her personality but most people would identify it as such. He personality is sweet and hospitable. The behavior just makes it hard for her to enjoy the results of her efforts and hospitality.

Negus Maximums

fair enough

dont mean to sound pessimistic but that won’t necessarily work on another individual

apparently many people have tried, even psychiatrists

Brendhain

Oh, I might post conversations we have onto a blog. You name will changed. Do you have a preference of name? I named one friend by taking “the reasonable believer” Translating it into Greek and then Listening to the sound of it and writing it with a mix of languages’ different pronunciation. A mix of Swedish/English/French. I needed to use them all in order to write the sounds of the Greek sound to the Greek translation.

Negus Maximums

post what on a blog?!?!!?

what am I, an experiment bunny?!?!

Brendhain

Psychiatrist are pill pushing idiots. They are medical doctors for the brain. Psychologists/therapists dig into the brain. My guy is very sharp but he knows that I am smarter and better than he is at it. That girl was only the latest example. not the only. therapists make the mistake of believing that you have to lead the patient down a path so that The Patient themselves figures out what the problem is. fuck that! I can see the problem (if I know/suspect that there is a problem) in half a second to five minutes. Then I go about fixing it. I use everything from subliminally techniques to flat out stating it like in the example above. Some take lots of slow tweeking over a long period of time. Depends on the individual and my relationship with them. People need help! If you know what the solution is then get that info inside of them!!

Negus Maximums

We can give it a try with her when I’m home

tell me about this blog shit

Brendhain

Well you are a very hairy man but I wouldn’t call you a bunny!  The idea is that I can’t be bothered to write a book since I am writing all the time with idiots like you!! ;-P I will just copy and paste it into the blog after. Might correct spellings and will always protect the innocent!

Negus Maximums

oh great so I’m an idiot and a test subject thats great!

Brendhain

So what name to you want me to use for you are dialogues?

Negus Maximums

I actually havent said much its been mostly you so Im not sure how thats going to benefit you are blog haha

use whatever name you want

NEGUS MAXIMUMS

use NEGUS MAXIMUMS

Brendhain

Are you just now realize that you have always been an idiot and a test bunny for everyone?! I assumed you knew. Didn’t at least your brother BooBoo tell you that?! Everybody else knows just by looking at you. God knows how you prove us right whenever you open you are mouth.!!

go to brendhain.com Read that and see what I did last night.

Negus Maximums

i dont open my mouth very often, especially around you so im puzzled as to how you came to this conclusion!

Brendhain

You are an open book for all to see that is why the chicks like you. They want to help the little boy that you never matured thru to the kid and then you jumped to teenager where you got fixed in because you never figured it out because you didn’t learn the rules you learn when you are a kid. So you are an awkward teenager in your behavior and you gravitate towards that behavior in others. Be The Man! Cuz The Man can act however he wants!

Negus Maximums

you’ve known me for how long now? And you think I’m awkward?!

LOL!

we’ll continue this conversation when I dont have to go to bed

haha

but yea you’re probably the first person ever thats called me awkward

Brendhain

That is so sad that you have had to go for so long this wáy and no one had the decency to tell you this before. Sorry Dude! Now you know!  I guess they all just felt sorry for you because you really are a nice guy, anyone can see that!

Negus Maximums

Or maybe Dr Freud is WRONG?! Or is that not a possibility? Have you ever been wrong?

And kiss my white ass!

Brendhain

First, I am wrong every day! But I am not wrong about you. I have known you too long and have been right with everything else that I have said to you. I have no reason to believe that this is a case of me being wrong. But who knows, you might not have a dick the size of a Pringle’s can!!

Negus Maximums

You’ll find out next week

Well if you think I’m awkward then you’re definitely wrong

if you think im in idiot then we should probably never hang out again

I am a nice guy though, you got that one right

Brendhain

We are all Idiots, My Friend! Have you not noticed that either?!

You are not awkward around guys! you are awkward around Girls!

Negus Maximums

not really man

pay attention on Friday and I’ll show you

take a look at this chick pls

something for you

http://www.pof.com/MISSING

Brendhain

I don’t need a daughter!  I think that one is more right for you. Love the guy with the banana!

You didn’t learn while you were a kid the basic rules of how to treat females. You missed having the girls grow boobs and learn from talking to other kids about their experiences with the girls with boobs. You have to treat them differently. You get all fucked up around women and that will make you into a CockBlock, which ain’t too cool! I was charming the hell out of these two sweet teaching students (22-23 yers old)  I ran into in a bar. They weren’t sure which one was going to get to take me home but they were both excited! Then my brother comes in and cockblocks the hell out of me. They didn’t leave but it took me 15 minutes of hard work to get them back on track, although it was where I was an hour before that!  I wouldn’t have done anything, they were just girls and I like women (who play the girl to make me smile) . But it was so fun to have them in the palm of my hand because I was in control and I knew that it was going to end very innocently.

Brendhain

But the cockblock action was not cool! The cool thing was that he total saw that he had done that. My brother suffered the same childhood as you.

did you check out the link?

Negus Maximums

dude, what do you actually think that I did from 10 and onwards?!?! Its not like I stopped living. Still did all the things other kids did, its not like i was isolated from society!

if you really want to know I can take you through it because at the moment there are a lot of incorrect assumptions

but not now, when Im home

Brendhain

You are making a lot of assumptions as to what I am talking about

Negus Maximums

probably

thats why you dont talk about shit like this in typing

im interpreting this as that u think i had some sort of abnormal childhood and missed out on some essential values in life

Brendhain

Us talking about shit like this will not be while typing. There is nothing specific in what we wrote. I wouldn’t post anything that I thought was private. Not specifically identifying it. But if it is there and we agree it is there then we can still type about what to do forward. Backwards is private.

Brendhain

If there is something there you fear I might be naive enough to post that you think I shouldn’t then feel free to tell me. If you give me a specific rule then I will follow it. If you want me to stop teasing you because god gave you a Pringle’s can instead of a penis then I will not post it!!!

Negus Maximums

there is nothing specific but there are comments about one thing that keeps coming up and thats me not learning as a kid which kind of makes it a specific topic

i dont understand what exactly you’re going to post

this conversation?

Dude im just going to call u on viber real quick

then i need to sleep

Brendhain

Dude, I will tell other people the same thing in all sorts of other analysis/diagnosis’s. You are not that fucked up and everyone has had crazy and boring things happen to them when they were a kid. What? Do you think my life as a kid was pleasant?!

A little night discussion upon the nature of god.

Brendhain
Let me tell you about one of the mental simulations that I do. It will extend my explanation about my views/relationship with god. I was just doing this again a moment ago and thought to tell you! As you know I am an Agnostic-Atheist, which means that I ‘think’ and know that I don’t know with 100% certainty that there is no god; but I fully lack any ‘belief’ in a god.
So although I have no belief, my rational mind says that there is always that possibility. So I think about how, if there were a god then what would be My reality. How could I analyse and understand a possible reality where there Was a god. And I have a ‘reality’ I get into (simulate that perspective). And have reached a great understanding of my relationship with that possible god. My view of gods nature and explanations as to why he doesn’t interfere with the world despite its present state of affairs, and all of humans’ time here. I have come to terms with how that reality would be and how things would work. I like playing in that reality and have a very fun understanding with god when I am ‘living in’ that perspective for a while. I tease god a lot but if he is GOD then he must love my sense of humor when I tease him because I am laughing my head off and I never make fun of peoples’ shortcomings. Unless it involves in needless vanity plastic surgery!!! And my GOD doesn’t need such plastic surgery!!
When I am in that perspective then it can be very intellectual with no amount of emotion feeling of his presence, just analysis. I am never angered but I do call him on some if his obvious fuck ups in how he set up the universe in a way in which it causes a great amount of needless suffering. But I intellectual understand why it works that way. It isn’t because of the Free Will argument. The things that lead up to the Jews having the idea of one god is interesting but they brought in the ‘punishment for sins’ concept with the one god because he was angry. Okay, I will stop writing all of my thoughts as they pop into my head!!!!!!

Jyvlo Yipistage
Would you delve a little deeper for me? You said it was a fuck up how the universe is set up in this reality you like to play in due to the great amount of needless suffering and that you intellectually understand why it works this way. What is your intellectual understanding of this?
Brendhain
That will take a little while to condense! Let me think for a while before I reply.
By the way, did you notice I initiated another chat!! You have me well trained!!

Jyvlo Yipistage
I’m not trying to train you! But I do like that you find I am worth the time to engage in conversation. I also appreciate that you noticed and remembered something I said.
And take as much time as you need to formulate your reply. That is a definite advantage of texting and Facebook…extra time before responding.

Brendhain
Now, Jyvlo, have I not always demonstrated your worth of my time every time you initiated conversations?! I stay up till 3:00 am chatting with you all the time! For hours!!! If that is not a demonstration enough for you then I am more than happy to initiate more conversations if that will satiate you!!
I don’t mind at all when someone tells me directly what their needs are. I actually like it! If it is reasonable for me to do and it will be of help then why wouldn’t I do it!! And I listen and remember EVERY WORD YOU SAY!! 😉

Jyvlo Yipistage
You HAVE stayed up late talking to me on more than one occasion. Thanks for pointing out to me that you ARE demonstrating interest to me just maybe not in the way I would choose. My ONLY fault (HA!!!) is that I tend to overlook things like that…Not a good quality for successful relationships!!!
EVERY WORD?? ARRRGGGHHHHH!!!! That’s scary….

Brendhain
I can’t access ALL of it on demand but I can access tons of it— Word for Word!! With others, you can remind me of it by quoting back something you said and 95% of the time I will be able to finish your quote, word for word, and continue with what I said  after you and then back to what you said etc. and most of the time I can back it up to before you said what you said and the whole conversational context of it all!! Some people find that SO ANNOYING!! Control freaks go nuts with me!!

Jyvlo Yipistage
Well, I can access most of it too since it’s all been via Facebook! lol
But I can’t quote you..I tend to focus on the overall message. I’m a ‘big picture’ kind of person generally.
I could quote you if I go back, copy and paste. Now I’m doing that thing that annoys you – multiple short messages…SORRY

Brendhain

The most basic answer to your god question for me is that I know how  god could have made man in a better way. Not a crazed ideal like Apollo!! In that case then clearly Superman powers would be the first thing!!

With a little lean in a good direction then being Human could be a more positive experience for a soul. It makes no sense to me that any loving God would put our innocent souls (at birth or baptism, as one pleases!) to a test. That makes no sense to me. The Old Testament has insight but it is also filled with the insanity of man and a semi-nomadic people (they moved around a lot whether by choice or force).
If the human mind worked a little different then life could be amazing and we could solve these fundamental issues that mankind struggles with through the ages. It is pretty simple.
So from that perspective I sought to understand why God would create and accept a world as we have it,in which the experience of being Any human on the planet is unnecessarily cruel (physical, mental and/ emotional suffering). One solution would be If we knew there was a god because we were born connected to the mind of god and could speak directly to God.  JC as the bible describes (or Muhammad who spoke directly with god) had this insight and made his experience of earth very different from ours. Instead of seeing/looking for signs and reading very confusing and contradictory book(s). The message/book could have been written so much more clearly and leave out the stuff about not wearing two different types of material at one time etc.
To make any sense of the history of the universe, earth, life and mankind (and the condition of their existence today) you have to accept science and evolution as the obvious thing that happened (or a very accurate description of the main elements forming it). Only someone who is unaware/skeptical of the concept of ‘science’ while they type on their computer can ignore this obvious truth!
Also, clearly, god does not reach in and affect the universe. He may have set it in motion and let it do its thing. It can be argued that:  At the beginning of the universe (big bang) is when God set it in motion and it has just run its course ever since.
Not sure Why he made mankind this way, clearly a rational god would not have done it this way without some motivation?! If god is irrational then who cares?! Irrational people are impossible to please so why bother and try? On judgement day your fate would depend more upon his mood than what you did with your life.

Jyvlo Yipistage

So you are suggesting that God should have made superior (if not perfect) humans? If we were superior to our current state (depending on the level of that superiority) then there would be no need for us to have problem-solving capabilities because we would not cause each other problems! All would be good and enjoyable and perfectly BORING! The God I believe in doesn’t put us to a test but simply offers us His love. If He just talked to us all the time in a totally accessible way, we would be completely dependent on Him and lazy and expect him to solve everything for us rather than delving into deep relationships with others as He desires to do with us.

As far as whether or not God reaches in and intervenes in events…I don’t have a strong belief about that one way or the other. It is a question I often ask myself.
And, yes these are complex questions but not questions I haven’t spent lots of time considering.

Brendhain

There is no need to go to an extreme difference from where we are. That was my point with the Superman joke! A small change in our awareness level would make it possible for us to Use our problem solving skills to better understand ourselves and how we work. Not make us perfect! Plus, Jyvlo , even insects need problem solving techniques to survive.

Jyvlo Yipistage
touché – OK fine…higher level problem-solving skills. Also, if we were just a smidgen ‘better’ in this way we would probably be only more painfully aware of our shortcomings and complain that God should have made us just ever so slightly better.
I am not arguing with your logic or the soundness of your positions. They are all very logical. But you still feel there is a piece of the puzzle missing, right?

Brendhain
As to our short coming, I completely disagree! More awareness would bring more understanding and with tht less anxiety about things. We could lose superficialness with it. The more self-aware I am and aware of the similarities between me and everyone else’s experience of being human the more forgiving I am of myself and other people.

The missing piece is the answer. Why would a rational God have chosen this fate for mankind? That is what is missing.
The more ‘aware’ people of the world are compassionate people. The un- or semi- aware people are the ones who cause trouble. We all contribute to the confusion but the zombies totally mess up the place.

Jyvlo Yipistage
Lol! So what is your solution to the human condition? Kill the zombies?

Kidding…But seriously now..while we are ‘playing in this reality’ we are assuming God exists. So would you agree for God to exist and to have created the world and humanity it is a prerequisite that God be more intelligent than us? If so, it follows that God’s understanding of humanity and reality exceeds ours so there is probably a reason we can only partially grasp for things being the way they are. Compassion and self-awareness can lead to action to at least TRY to help others become more self-aware so that fewer zombies exist.

Brendhain
Just because someone is more intelligent than another does not mean that it understands the experience or the mind of another! I have no idea what is going on in a dogs mind or how it experiences life and the senses. Apparently they have no sense of time!
Being Intelligent and being rational are two different things. A rational mind needs a reason or motivation, an irrational mind doesn’t.

Jyvlo Yipistage
We weren’t discussing personal intimate knowledge but rather knowledge of the workings etc – the big picture

Brendhain
I agree on the big picture but an infinitely compassion, as well as, rational mind would not have knowingly created such experiences of reality as we humans experience it. That makes no sense.
For him, the big picture is everything in the universe but not ‘individual reality’. The experience/experience some children have is not rationally acceptable by a compassionate mind.
For me, this means that God would have to be unaware of it when he set things in motion. One could then conclude that he spoke to Moses and sent JC (or spoke thru any profit from any religion)  to try to communicate with us and change the path we are on.
Simple knowledge of how our minds work and how to learn. How to modify negative behavior and thinking. These simple skills, which we are just now discovering due to other things than religion; scientific method-brain science, psychology etc
If he had “spoken” these things to us (or if we were born with these skills) then eventually most people would natural conclude by using their problem solving skills that ‘don’t be a dick’ is a pretty good rule! Most of the 10 Commandments are pretty obvious to any reasonable person., etc.

The traditional creation story is that the perfect world was created which included choice. Poor choices leading to undesirable consequences. If choice was present that means humans were capable of making positive choices… Unfortunately even ‘good’ people make ‘bad’ choices. The cumulative effects of those choices are disease, famine, climate change, drought etc. The ten commandments were a drastic simplification of prior Leviticus laws. And yes they are pretty much common sense. However, I don’t know anyone who has not broken at least one of them.

Brendhain
“Choice” is not a Choice if you are incapable of understanding the consequences. It is just “picking”.
There is no such thing as perfection so of coarse everyone has made “bad” choices or wasn’t thinking and did something “bad”. No rational person would expect themselves to be perfect if they had a real understanding of how their mind works. They would see that the mind and body aren’t a perfect machine. 95% is a very good performance level. To expect 100% would be irrational.
Apparently we make more bad choices than good ones as it is, considering the state of human history and existence.

And humans don’t cause earthquakes or other natural disasters.
So I hear you saying God created an imperfect world where humans are unfairly subjected to pain and circumstances not of their choosing.

Brendhain
Clearly that is the case to anyone who looks around! An unnecessary amount and degree of suffering on this crazy planet he made with earthquakes, floods, droughts — all the great plagued.

Jyvlo Yipistage
So you conclude that if He exists he is irrational and imperfect.

Brendhain
Imperfect is a very vague statement. But that he makes “picks” without full understanding the consequences upon others, Yes. The existence of Suffering is bad enough but to experience suffering is horrible for all humans.
Not irrational  there is too much order in the universe for God to be irrational. If he were irrational then that would explain why he set it in motion this way. But an irrational mind would have ‘magic’ in the world. Things that are impossible to predict and break the Laws of Physics. The only things that break the laws of physics is the human mind and its ability to be creative ideas and perceptions that don’t really exist. It can create realities and ideas that break the laws of physics but these realities don’t exist in the external world. They are held only in the mind.

Like miraculous healings without medical intervention?
So he’s not irrational or you are undecided?

Brendhain

There are no ‘miraculous healings without medical intervention’. These spontaneous healing of all of these diseases are statistically predicted regardless of the presence of religion. A small percentage survive all diseases(general statement). Some people carry the HIV virus but never come down with AIDS and they received no medical treatment. It just always happens that some don’t. No disease is Perfect/flawless. Some people survive even plane crashes!
For me, god must be rational but when he set all of this in motion he clearly didn’t understand what the experience of existence in the human reality and had limited knowledge of the function of this machine called a mind.

When I simulate the possibility that god exists then I give him some shit and point out how obvious it is that if we were all born with simply knowledge of how we work/function and how to train it to work more like how we want it to work then so much suffering would be eliminated.

Why do u talk to someone who doesn’t exist? That’s pretty irrational!!

Brendhain
I don’t know if he exists or not. But let it be known that I talk to my TV, too. I just don’t expect it to talk back to me!!

Jyvlo Yipistage
Heeheehee!

Brendhain
But I only talk with God when I doing this thought experiment. I don’t do it otherwise.

Jyvlo Yipistage
I don’t have answers for all the arguments against the existence of God. The times in my life that I’ve truly questioned everything I go back to the beginning of the universe. Big bang is fine but that doesn’t explain the source of the material FOR the big bang. Despite my bit having scientific logical rational explanations for all of it, I do believe in an intelligent creator who desires most of all to be in intimate relationship with every human being. I don’t have to get you to agree with me in order to be friends. I’m ok with the disagreement. I enjoy the chance to deeply examine what I believe.

Jyvlo Yipistage
*not

Brendhain
I was just answering your question and I wasn’t giving you an argument against God! We were assuming that he Did exist.
There wasn’t material before the big bang. The big bang was a release and conversion of energy into a state we call “matter”. The source of the energy is unknown. Matter is simply vibrations(energy) or converted energy (in a sense), according to physics.
It could have been God who was the source of energy but I see no need for one. But it is interesting to think about if it was a god!

Jyvlo Yipistage
Ok. I thought the big bang stated that there was a singularity and I thought that was matter condensed to its most dense form. Regardless my point is still valid. And yes I think it is interesting to consider whether the source of that was a god.

Brendhain
Before the singularity there was energy. This energy expanded and condensed into  participial of matter, this is the singularity. Before the entry of matter, Time didn’t exist. Hence, our present math breaks down without the dimension of time.

Which ‘point’ do you mean that is still valid?

Jyvlo Yipistage
That there is room on the theory for a source

Brendhain
I said that first, I think? I absolutely agree that there is that possibility! Isn’t that were I started from?! where I stated that I am an Agnostic-Atheist.

Jyvlo Yipistage
Ok. Glad we agree
Just seems u tend more toward atheist
I guess that’s why the discussion has gone that direction to a degree

Brendhain
We were discussing my view as to the nature of God if he is the source.
I didn’t discuss atheism at all?! Except when I said that I don’t believe. But I am balanced with agnosticism in that I know that I don’t know 100% if he does or doesn’t exist. So I am neither more one or the other. They balance each other but due to the atheism(lack of belief) I don’t spend much time factoring god into my moment to moment understanding of the world.
Must sleep now! Good night, Jyvlo. Fun chat!!

Jyvlo Yipistage
Yep. It was good for me, too. I’m going to smoke! Lol! Good night.
