It is my observation
that people generally bend their religious beliefs to fit their biases and
preconceptions. .
For centuries, for example, southern whites held slaves
and defined African American people as less than human. This
belief allowed them to resolve the cognitive dissonance
between their supposed Christian beliefs and their reprehensible actions.
The genocide of native peoples across many continents is
another example. The selective focus on the words in Leviticus
concerning homosexuality, while ignoring the other guidelines about
smiting our neighbor or stoning women to death is another example.

Your article is so clear and logical. Unfortunately, many of us humans are not!

I wish this project was getting more exposure in mainstream

needs it.

Comment on Why Meditation Is An Important Part of Taiji and Qigong by Chandos Caldwell http://www.dontow.com/2017/03/why-meditation-is-an-important-part-of-taiji-and-qigong/#comment-855578 Wed, 22 Mar 2017 18:10:20 +0000 http://www.dontow.com/?p=4516#comment-855578 I like the quote. ‘Not intuitive. But that’s not why I like it.

I am happy to know that the “Lower abdominal breathing” is useful, since that is what I do, naturally. I thought I was incorrect, when some exercise practioner suggested the “natural” type of breathing, which is odd for me.

Comment on Taiji by Dr. Dan Casel Cosmetic Dentist in Jupiter FL http://www.dontow.com/taiji/#comment-846466 Mon, 20 Feb 2017 22:38:10 +0000 http://dontow.com/wordpress/?page_id=380#comment-846466 Very interesting study. This is the first time reading about Taiji and it certainly seems like an amazing way to help you teach your mind and body to become one. I have a friend who has practiced Tha Chi for many years and seems very in tune with nature and himself.

There is another possible answer to your question China experienced a major civil war between December 1850 and August 1864. It is known as the Taiping Rebellion or Taiping Uprising. Two major slogans of this Uprising were “Resist Foreign Powers” and “Rid Internal Traitors.” So its targets were the foreign exploiting powers who were squeezing more and more unequal treaties from China, and the Qing government who wasn’t doing much or capable of doing much to resist the foreign exploitation. It was a major civil war during which more than 20 million people were killed, including a lot of foreigners. I don’t know how much the uprising/rebellion affected Hong Kong, but it was very serious and widespread in Southern and Southwestern China.

Perhaps there are some readers who can shed some light on this issue.

Don

Excuse my very late reply!
The names of the deceased children and adults in Stanley Military cemetery were all British.
Still a mystery why so many died in that year 1864.

Comment on U.S.-China Relationship Can Use Another Anson Burlingame* by Dominic Li http://www.dontow.com/2016/12/u-s-china-relationship-can-use-another-anson-burlingame/#comment-831737 Fri, 23 Dec 2016 08:58:48 +0000 http://www.dontow.com/?p=4444#comment-831737 I totally agreed that a war with China is more than mutual destruction to the detriment of both countries. I was not keen about Obama policy in Asia in particularly how he chose to deal with China. In spite of all the sabre rattling and posturing in South China Sea, I still do not think China has any intent to invade or bully other ASEAN nations. This is my second year living in China and my perception of ordinary Chinese citizens is that they are more concern with the prospect of peaceful daily life and earn a living. In spite of some Sino-phobic attitude of certain Americans, China is a communist country by name only and the economic pursuit is no different than any western developed countries. China, like any developing country, would need to upgrade their military to defend herself. This upgrade is unfortunately perceived by Pentagon as aggressive behavior. Unless China acts differently, my opinion is same as yours – a long term peaceful cooperation between 2 countries and both would benefit from better trade, growth and mutual respect.
