    What does it mean? Did he invent it or do you think its something that one of his therapists said to him which he's been pissed about since? I get a feeling that he works out his arguments or issues from therapy with everyone else he can come into contact with, without ever realising that behaving that way with everyone would suggest its more likely that it is he that has the problem than the whole damn world of everyone else.

    I think I know what you mean.

    I dont think its particularly funny for either of them or likely to be fun either, probably tragic, although its my opinion and it just happens to be different from yours, not saying there's a right and a wrong about it, I dont know the people involved afterall.

    Default Criminals and the Déclassé

    In Japan it is only the Yakuza, the organised criminals, who wear tattoos. So if we wear tattoos in Japan, we are suspected of being criminals. This is also true in some other Asian countries.

    And in jails across the world criminals tattoo themselves.

    And it has now become fashionable for the déclassé to tattoo themselves.

    So in some countries tattoos have déclassé allure.
    There is NOTHING--absolute nothing--half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. Simply messing.

    i'd assume so, it's pretty aggressively counter-culture. most non-republicans are probably against it too, at least when it comes to judging the person/hiring them for a job.

    but you know... who really cares? lol

    Well, he will learn a valuable lesson eventually on just how many people actually care

    Well, it sounds kind of sad that father and son are at opposite extremes.

    Still its not people I know so I dont care that much.

    I am not sure what other definitions you are talking about, I would have to consider them and I'm not familiar with all of them, we could be talking about quite different things. I do think that some of Thomas Aquinas' definitions are interesting, the unmoved mover and that sort of thing.

    Also I find Maimonides (spelling) is a good theorist of these kinds of things, and his definitions are sound too, for instance that God is non-corporeal and therefore in some ways no definable, that has been used as a que by some athiests or non-theists to suggest that this meant God's existence and all things to do with God should not be up for discussion or thought about but focus should instead be on practical ethics. I dont necessarily think that way.

    I think the different definitions and ideas are useful, perhaps, as a temporal search for God, although that will never be something which can be complete. Unless you are satisfied with simple reductive answers or the outright dismissal of the question by atheism. Which I am not.
    If that is how you think about god, then what led you to believe there is one in the first place? It would seem impossible to be aware of or even interested in something that is undefinable, unprovable and so ultimately unknowable. Please answer with as much logic and as little name-dropping as you can.

    Interesting...so if I were born the son of a plutocrat but married a doctor, a Tattoo would be in order.

    I'll keep that in mind in the next life.
