I understand. Personally, I don't think the concepts of things have enough shared understanding to be meaningful in sharing information with others. We approximate and guess at the feelings and thinkings of "the other" in our mental undertakings with other people.

We even have difficulty with consistency in our self concepts. Do we always remember what we like and dislike? Our our feelings tainted with the now so much that their past recordings don't do the now us justice?

Holiness I guess should be more ingrained. If there were a God then memories of God should be the ones we most vigilantly want to set in stones like commandments?

"But you do see that I don’t believe in a ‘unified’ holiness, right?"

So what do you believe?

"I believe that every time I hear a new born baby cry, a guy leaves town..."

If you know the tune, sing along!

The song I was mocking is a very nice song, albeit not so much for hardcore, really macho Atheists like I pretend to be.

I believe this is the most popular version (as opposed to "the most popular virgin", which title is very, very hard to retain, for reasons I won't go into...).

And it does have twice have the line that starts, "Every time I hear a newborn baby cry..." But the ending I supplied, 'a guy leaves town' is fun, because people are more weird, or weirder, than they are wonderful...or wonderfuler.

If you have the time, listen to the song. As I say, it's really inspirational, if you think ghawd is watching you (by Bette Midler!! OMG!!!).

Yep, twice. I like your ending. It is less maudlin.

But without the maudlin, what is the purpose of F&T meetings?

Those meetings are almost a requiem of lachrymose. Maudlin is less dirgey.
