    Uppity up up!

    Anyone keen to going to khairi's place to eat baby food?
    If so, could we meet at say 3pm at Khatib MRT? Bring your camera along, so that we could drop by the reservoir near sunset to take some nice scenic photos.

    Please put your name down if you're interested:

    I don't recall after this discussion with you leh...

    Anyway, to me, if you do enough work during term time, study week is machiam like play week lor! Heck! I usually sleep the most and complete the most games during exam period anyway. Think the only reason why I'm not out as often as you are, is that I'm an introvert lor!

    Very interesting ... in trying to be a better Catholic - what exactly do you do? Go to church, go for confession etc - the 'PRACTICE' part? Or pray more? Be more spiritual? Heck - how do you BE MORE SPIRITUAL??
    I am baptised as an Anglican and we (my family) is sort of more into High Anglicanism - so our church rituals etc - are very Catholic and I do like them sometimes - coz for me it's like a sacred pagentry - with all the incense and hymns and kneeling and standing and praying / chanting in Latin (not all Latin but some) ...

    if you like this sort of thing you should come down to Singapore during August. Lots of partying and photo opportunities during the Hungry Ghost month.

    Interesting link between a half-renovated house and modern art. Still, I really feel that it's unfair to lump everything into Modern Art just because one couldn't understand it. The feeling is like, this piece of art is rubbish. Let's call it "modern art". Heck! Simply disrespectful to modern art.


    Modern art is the nutshell artform that have been totally influenced by postmodernism, which tend to include components of deconstruction. This of course is contradictory, for the genre itself needs to be deconstructed in the first place to even lump the art together.

    Sigh... the thing is - I am rather tired of 'postmodernism' / 'deconstruction' / modern art ... - besides I don't think one can 'understand' fully ANY art let alone 'modern' art. And I am going to admit it once and for all - I don't like abstract art unless they are colourful or they speak to me - sometimes i just let things speak to me and NOT analyse/deconstruct/apply limitations by DEFINING them and putting them into boxes ...

    Cos there's a lot of dimension within a university? At the student and academics level, probably subjects like religious studies are of interest. But once it goes to the senate level, they will question on how objective this will be, how relevent it is to the society, and what's the potential career path one could take, graduating from that field. And then up one more level to the varsity level, they will have to decide whether there should streamline the departments even more to save on the budget. Up one more level, it will be the constant debate between the government and the uni of what kind of "products" they have to churn in 5, 10, 15, 20 years time.

    So why isn't there a religious studies department in NUS? Well, just find one level that could go wrong and voila!

    In other words - SINGAPORE IS A UTILITARIAN SOCIETY - EVERYTHING MUST SERVE A PURPOSE - and at this moment - Religious Studies seem quite un-utilitarian (or is it non-utilitarian?) - sigh ... what to do when you live in a techno-Neo-Confucianist socially engineered paradigm? Even BEAUTY has to serve a purpose ... And God too - yes - God is there to BLESS and PROTECT ...and studying RELIGION? NO NEED - just PRACTICE will do.

    I'm forever in the midst of argument when it comes to christianity, for literally no one in Singapore understand the what is atheism and what implications it means. And me, having a vested interest in philosophy, love to talk to my friends who are taking the module to see how open-minded they have became. Most often than not, the conservative side got the better of them, and I would just have to emphasis my stance that being christian isn't about being religious (religious in going to churches, taking bible literally, going for organised church activities, etc. etc.), but a more personal and spiritual association/relationship between the christian and god. That often ended up quite ugly, with us not talking for a week or so! Haaa~!
    So are you an atheist - TRULY an atheist? Not even agnostic? No CREATIVE DIVINITY / ENERGY etc? Yes - I understand about the 'conservative' side - in my last life as a Christian fundamentalist (yes - I went around with a Bible AT ALL TIMES asking people - strangers, anyone on the streets, my neighbours / classmates / relatives etc - whether they know Jesus Christ and whether they were saved - ok I was 16 years old - but I was like that till in my early 20s) - when I was going to church at least 4-5 times a week - my pastor discouraged us from taking up Philosophy if we do go to Uni. I guess he meant well - didn't want our faith to be tested etc ...

    I don't argue with my christian friends anymore - I just listen to them - coz I like to hear about religious experiences - maybe I should write my own version of 'The Varieties of Religious Experience' - haha!

    For me, the choice of atheism bounded myself with the chore of seeking meanings for all my actions all the time. There's simply no difference in deed and heart in my believe. And if one act against what they set out to do, they're simply just being an outright hypocrite, that's all.
    What if there is NO MEANING IN ANY ACTION? Sigh ... wait - that goes against the UTILITARIAN paradigm we live in ...

    Wah... Since when did this thread became a "religious" thread?

    I actually quite agree with Cheat.
    ...being christian isn't about being religious (religious in going to churches, taking bible literally, going for organised church activities, etc. etc.), but a more personal and spiritual association/relationship between the christian and god.

    It is more about a relationship with God. The person who loves God would want to be with God, to be near Him. Going to churches, reading the bible, going for church activities, are but expression of love.
    What I am trying to say is that Christians are not required to do those activities (evangalise, organise activities...) just compelled to do them because of the love that they received. "Freely received, freely give."

    Peace.
