ADHD Librarian: Ima_Lurker: Greenshuz: If a Bibliophile only loves *one* book, does that make them homotextual?

I think Leviticus frowns on that

Actually, you will find that many people interpret Leviticus in a way which indicates that they must only love one book.


That's the whole monotextual / homotextual debate isn't it?  We are supposed to find a tome of the opposite gender and start raising a family of children's books.

http://aynrandlexicon.com/lexicon/hedonism.html


I am profoundly opposed to the philosophy of hedonism. Hedonism is the doctrine which holds that the good is whatever gives you pleasure and, therefore, pleasure is the standard of morality. Objectivism holds that the good must be defined by a rational standard of value, that pleasure is not a first cause, but only a consequence, that only the pleasure which proceeds from a rational value judgment can be regarded as moral, that pleasure, as such, is not a guide to action nor a standard of morality. To say that pleasure should be the standard of morality simply means that whichever values you happen to have chosen, consciously or subconsciously, rationally or irrationally, are right and moral. This means that you are to be guided by chance feelings, emotions and whims, not by your mind. My philosophy is the opposite of hedonism. I hold that one cannot achieve happiness by random, arbitrary or subjective means. One can achieve happiness only on the basis of rational values. By rational values, I do not mean anything that a man may arbitrarily or blindly declare to be rational. It is the province of morality, of the science of ethics, to define for men what is a rational standard and what are the rational values to pursue.

James F. Campbell: Really now, at this point, isn't calling Christians stupid like saying that water is wet? And isn't arguing with them like fishing with dynamite?

And if we hit that bull's-eye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards. Checkmate.


There are smart Christians out there.  Its just you don't know about them because smart Christians don't back up everything they say with "You have to believe in everything I believe in because it says so in the Bible."

vygramul: There was a bookstore clerk who corrected someone who asked to see a manager by saying, "It's PERSONager."


I really want to throttle people like that. Being a calm, law-abiding person I don't, but that doesn't mean that somewhere down in my heart of hearts, the whole thing about how stress is caused by the body overriding the brain's natural desire to choke the living shiat out of someone who really deserves it doesn't come into play.

The ones who have "ovulars" because "seminar" is sexist practically send me ballistic. Not to mention the ones who think "history" is "his story".

There really are sex-specific and arguably sexist words in the English language. Some of them could do with being replaced with better words. But any hope of doing so (personally, I'd like to swap out "chairman" for "moderator" or something ... not because of sexism, but because I can't get over how, as a very literal-minded small child, I thought a chairman was someone other people sat on) is made impossible by this kind of crap. It's crying wolf over and over again until a wolf could be in your living room eating your kids and nobody will believe it.

Now, I happen to be a bibliophile. Also a logophile. And I'm somewhat obsessed with etymology (not so much with entomology, but I know my bugs from my beetles). If someone said something stupid like that in my presence, I'd probably deliver a lecture on the etymology of the word and its root in "manus", which they probably wouldn't get, because, y'know, there's that evil "man" in there. I have to wonder why they don't have similar issues with "person" since it's got "son" in it, and it's clearly the sound of the syllables, not the actual derivation of the words, that matters to them. And then they'd throw me out of the store. Such is life.

Just had to rant about that. Those people do bad things to my blood pressure. There are more than enough real problems in the world and these cretins have to go make them up.

So if I take hedonism and "fix" its issue by declaring that one needs to be rational and not emotional, I've not been inspired by it?

Well folks, I'm off. There is this nice little paperback I have had my eye on for a while and all this talk has got me excited enough to risk making a move. Some of my friends say she is a real page turner, but you can't always listen to gossip. I think I'll take things slowly, just a couple of words. Make sure she know I am not the kind of guy who is going to dog ear her corners. I take precautions, always carry a new bookmark in my wallet, just in case.
I'm a little nervous, it has been a little while since I was with a tome I really connected with. Obviously, there have been others but they were just, cheap things I picked up in coffee shops just to kill some time. Frankly I am ready to find a good text, one which will take me places and (I hope) show me something new, expand my mind a bit (if you know what I mean, and I think you do).
I hear she is educated (Oxford), my only real concern is that she might be a bit young for me. I have heard she doesn't mind an older-reader, but some of your modern types get a bit concerned when you pay too much attention to their descriptors or when you want to look at the relationships more than the action (not that I am too old for the action, I do sometimes have to use a little assistance to give their little words enough attention).

She comes up with a moral philosophy in which the highest good a person can do is to make sure they have as much as possible and live as well as possible, regardless of its effect on others. (So long as that doesn't turn them against you in an effective way.) Then she claims it's not related at all to hedonism.

Right...

And if, you know, you didn't have the time to spare to type "define: bibliophile" into google, or pick up a damn dictionary. Of course, either of those options also requires a level of literacy likely beyond Mr. Comfort's.

Deathfrogg: Prank Call of Cthulhu: Ray Comfort is probably really mad about everyone trying to penalize him for not understanding a word.

Mostly, though, that's because he thinks "penalize" has something to do with penises.

The etymology of the word is exactly that.


No, it isn't.  
Origin:
1400-50; late Middle English < Latin poenālis, equivalent to poen ( a ) penalty (< Greek poinḗ fine) + -ālis

2013-04-03 01:06:08 PM  

Jerry Westerby: To his credit, Comfort owned up to being a dumbass and apologized for it.


I'm a little suspicious of that. Comfort isn't ignorant of the excoriation he took from that banana video and has apparently been going around claiming that the video itself was meant to be a joke, rather than a serious thesis on creationism; I'm not sure how effective this defense has been, but he's certainly hoping to mitigate some of the well-earned contempt surrounding him.

Comfort is wound up so tight he needs to take a repository.

reillan: To be fair, when I was a moderator for a large Christian group years and years ago, we would constantly get people coming in calling us all sorts of things, highly derogatory and inflammatory.  We were called pedos and worse, we had hackers take over frequently, and even more often people would come in proclaiming to be Christian only to lull us into a false sense of security and begin telling us impossible stories, such as satanic cults the person was a part of, etc.

It put us in a constantly defensive mindset.  So, if I didn't know that word or understand how words were put together, I might have gone as far off the derpy-defensive end as he did.


Came here to say this - seems natural that he probably sees a metric ass-load of crap on any given day. At least he owned up to it.

A lot of my Facebook friends are very hostile towards Christianity and for a while my feed was a constant stream of crap. Stuff like "Scientists discover new species of _____, suck it Christians, where's your God now? LOL Bible thumperz r stoopid" followed up immediately by "This guy burned a Quran, how dare he disrespect someone's personal beliefs like that???"

I came to the conclusion that these friends are
A) Brain damaged
B) Hypocritical
C) Turrists.
D) All of the above.

I was just nicely surprised by how courteous the rest of the cited part of the exchange was. Not to side with Ray Comfort, but I can understand how someone running a Christian Facebook page would deal with a lot of trolls and become quick to go on the defensive and react carelessly. That being said, I still think he can go choke on one for his stance on gay marriage and for hanging out with Kirk Cameron.
