Dogmatic religions give a bad name to the belief in a god

Some religions focus on the subjective experience of the religious individual, while others consider the activities of the religious community to be most important. Some religions claim to be universal, believing their laws and cosmology to be binding for everyone, while others are intended to be practiced only by a closely defined or localized ... Ahinsā (Ahinsā, alternatively spelled 'ahinsa', Sanskrit: अहिंसा IAST: ahinsā, Pāli: avihinsā) in Jainism is a fundamental principle forming the cornerstone of its ethics and doctrine. The term ahinsa means nonviolence, non-injury and absence of desire to harm any life forms. Vegetarianism and other nonviolent practices and rituals of Jains flow from the principle of ahimsa. Moral Relativism. Moral relativism is the view that moral judgments are true or false only relative to some particular standpoint (for instance, that of a culture or a historical period) and that no standpoint is uniquely privileged over all others. It has often been associated with other claims about morality: notably, the thesis that different cultures often exhibit radically different moral ... Religions are such a touchy subject. There are thousands of religions in the world today, but they all differ in ideology. Anytime anyone brings up a matter of his or her “beliefs,” everyone seems to get uncomfortable and changes the subject. Cults, are an even touchier subject. Every time someone says “cult,” our brains automatically… In this world bad language is used in good and bad ways. Censorship in books help you believe the book. Just because a book has bad language doesn't mean we should ban it. There are lots of movies that have bad language and are popular. IN true stories there are bad language because its what a person actually thinks. If we included Eastern religions in the scope of the discussion, the hope for finding a single essence of religion would recede further. Probably it is best to understand ‘religion’ as a term for a group of belief/practice amalgams with a family resemblance to each other, but no set of necessary and sufficient conditions tying them together ... The problem with identifying yourself with anything other than your own experience is that it is difficult to talk about these subjects without creating friction. Whenever there is a great emotional investment in any element of life, analyzing it is a difficult and confronting experience because our very basis for life and existence is being examined.

2022.01.22 14:20 jpperezh Dogmatic religions give a bad name to the belief in a god

Let me start by saying that I don’t follow any specific religion, nor do I understand god as an all-mighty agent that resembles a human being. That’s an archaic construct that was very useful in its time, but we can now move past it. Yet, the amount of questions that are unresolved by science, specifically in an ontological sense, bother me to the point of faith. I will try to explain some of the main main concerns that had led me to be more spiritual, whilst trying to not sound like a fanatic in the process:
Why is there something rather than nothing? I am a full believer in the big bang as the origin of the observable universe, and of evolution as the origin of all species. However, these are very useful explanations for the HOW, and not the WHY. I know, I know, there doesn’t NEED to be a why. But it is pretty evident to me that one of the fundamental properties of the universe is to go from lower to higher complexity; that’s what evolution is. And where will we be in a million years? (Hoping that we don’t fuck up the planet beforehand) Where is evolution going? To me, it looks as if all species were heading towards de-materialization, to pure consciousness. It can’t be an accident that when a species, such as humans, go past the burden of survival, our first instinct is to ask questions, to go towards abstract thought and to look within us for answers (meditation, psychoanalysis, etc.). I know it’s a wild assumption based on nothing but belief, but I truly think that the universe is a cycle of expansion and contraction. The big bang was the force of expansion, and it is the job of conscious beings to evolve to a point of pure consciousness so that we may remember how to contract again. I guess I’ve always seen it this way: We ARE the universe. We are the part of the universe that is aware of itself. And by logical deduction, our goal is to become so aware of ourselves (of this universe) that eventually there is no distinction between the two concepts. We are the universe trying to understand itself so it can put itself back together. In this way, my understanding of god is much closer to something like Baruch Spinoza’s description: “the sum of the natural and physical laws of the universe and certainly not an individual entity or creator”. It is in this version of god that Einstein believed in. And even though my rambling is all over the place and pretty un-sourced, it comes from a real place pf existential angst. To me, religion and sticking to tradition goes against the pursuit of answers, and therefore ironically, goes against the complete understanding of god. I know this is a faith based argument, but there can’t really be an argument for the ontological origin of things without some faith. At some point, we run out of “how” answers and hit the “why” questions.

2022.01.22 14:20 AerieAlert9360 Não consigo pensar em coisas legais para fazer no aniversário da minha namorada.

Título. Me sinto muito incomodado por não ter ânimo de comemorar do jeito que ela gostaria. Este ano ela está um pouco desanimada, porque esse surto de Covid/Influenza restringiu as saídas de novo, e ela gostaria de ver os amigos. E eu queria poder pensar em alguma coisa legal que a animasse dentro das possibilidades, já que os pais dela nunca dão muita bola pra essa data. Pelo contrário, ela mesma diz que o pai dela fala uma coisa qualquer, e a mãe sempre dá um jeito de estragar com um comentário ou atitudes que estragam o dia dela.
Eu tenho depressão e ansiedade, e a pandemia acentuou tudo isso. Perdi meu emprego em dezembro e atualmente tô nessa de tentar me recolocar, mas todo dia tem sido uma batalha mental pra tentar levantar da cama. Meu ânimo está lá embaixo, e eu me incomodo bastante por não conseguir nem fazer do aniversário dela um gás pra me mexer e pensar em alguma coisa que faça ela se sentir feliz. Ela está também num momento conturbado, abarrotada de coisas da faculdade, estágio, um freela, um projeto de extensão e um filho pra criar. Eu moro sozinho e ela vem pra cá às vezes, mas essa semana ela preferiu voltar pra casa dos pais porque o filho dela disse que queria ficar com os avós. E ela vai, mesmo sendo mil vezes mais complicado pra ela lá por conta da própria família dela.
Eu até falei pra ela que poderíamos fazer um pique-nique no domingo, já que o aniversário dela é segunda e ela provavelmente não vai poder fazer qualquer coisa por causa da faculdade/trabalho. Mas sei lá, acredito que seja só uma pequena coisa e que não vai ser suficiente pra ela se sentir realmente bem, porque ela queria, como eu disse, ver outras pessoas também. E aí fica essa sensação bosta de querer fazer alguma coisa por ela, mas sem saber o quê.

2022.01.22 14:20 SerenadeTheSword I had to give my puppy away after a serious illness and It's killing me inside

I won't explain much, instead I will give you the shortest
Our dog and other female dog has 8 puppies togerher. Dad made a deal we take one puppy, they take the rest. Dumb POS didn't vaxx the puppy at 6 weeks so we had to do it at 8 weeks. But what we didn't know is that he had one virus so in the end it caused parvovirosis(Idk if it's parvo but vet said it). I once stayed from 10pm to 6am watching the dang floof. Vet said if he poops blood he's pretty much dead. He did, but he got better. 16th January dad sold the puppy to some kids (over 18 but they are still pretty much kids)
I pretended that I'm okay but I'm broken guys, It's been 6 days since my little boy went away.

2022.01.22 14:20 GandhiCrushSaga Why are people surrendering during ranked duels?

As someone that would probably be considered a 'Yugiboomer', I'm playing a Blue-Eyes deck, which I think we all know can't be considered 'Meta' (Despite this, I have however made it into Gold IV through sheer dumb luck).
But what sticks out to me is the number of people that simply surrender once I have a possibly winning board (BEUD with Neutron Blast activated, Multiple BE Twin Burst etc.).

Do people simply not realise or not care that by surrendering they are missing out on XP / Progress points by not simply taking the loss?
I've been absolutely stomped, or even FTK'd by any half-decent deck, but I would estimate that more than half of my ranks or unlocks have been earned this way.

Curious to understand the decision making behind them surrendering.

2022.01.22 14:20 Legal_Situation Computer Networking for IAM analyst roles and future plans

My team is likely specializing in IAM from a catchall sys eng team. Prior to this, we handled SaaS app admin as well as admining our IdP and core apps (Google workspace, collaboration tools etc)
We will likely work with
I plan to likely go for Security plus and possibly SC300 by Microsoft. I don't have much knowledge in networking but have a working knowledge of IP, MAC and things like dns, dhcp and other related protocols. I have a the basic cert from our IdP as well.
Would any specific networking knowledge be beneficial? I've considered CCNA but it seems possibly overkill as I don't think I want to actually configure or design networks. It's possible this isn't even a cert.
I often use browser console to troubleshoot SSO apps, but that's about as close to anything like Wireshark or other traffic analysis I've gotten. I'm fairly comfortable in the cli of Mac and windows and with basic tools. I've run some cloud Ubuntu servers as well and have basic knowledge of python 3. Much that has been homelab stuff
This is all up in the air of course but I'm curious to get folks advice.
