Murray has a point, in that the Spartans, for instance, fought in pairs of lovers, and when their opponents spied on them and saw them braiding each other's hair, putting on their nicest bracelets and necklaces and oiling each other's bodies and making love, the spies knew that the Spartans were preparing to fight to the death.

On the other hand, it is not necessary to be homosexual - or even to be unmarried or childless - to be prepared for blood sacrifice, and I'm not only talking about the maybe-I'll-survive soldiers of the World Wars. Look at the leaders of the 1916 Rising in Ireland, who knew that in signing the Proclamation of the Republic they were signing their death warrants - all but one married men with children, I think.

No, to die for your country, or your religion, or your ideals, what you need is a strong and perfect faith.

Interesting that Al Quaida, Taliban (btw many of the members use eye makeup) and other extremist Islamists have an asexual attitude toward women. It's a man's world.

Sure, hijacking a plane full of people and using them as a guided missile to kill more people is insane. But so is dropping bopmbs on other people. Crazy stuff.

But that doesn't mean you have to be crazy to do it. You just have to live in a world which is pretty crazy sometimes, and act according to the way that's seen as right and proper.

(And I'm not putting an = mark between the two actions. Or an "equivalent" sign, which I don't know how to do on a typewriter. I'm saying that close up actions that from a distance seem inexplicable can be recognised as only too normal. Sadly so.)

Oof! Looks like I was misunderstood. I was not saying the events of Sept 11 were not insane in a philosophical sense. I was merely stating that the people who committed those acts were probably not clinically insane, and that whether we consider them "insane" in a non-clinical sense is a purely cultural decision. Remember that among various groups, it is acceptable to kill a village full of men and then eat their flesh. To claim that all people in those cultures are insane is a cultural judgment, not a diagnosis.

I was arguing against the proposition that allowing yourself to die for your beliefs is necessarily insane. But it is also true that killing for your beliefs is not insane either. People who claim this is insanity are unwilling to face the fact that sane humans do things like this. We have a very clean and pretty view of the world, but the world is not all clean and pretty.

If we accept that, we see that it is not necessary to postualte that these men were both gay and insane, and offered an "out" of this suicide mission to avoid Hellfire. We can accept instead that they belong to a culture (in this case a subculture) where this behavior is culturally sanctioned and acceptable. Under those conditions, sane (and, of course, straight) people will do things like this.

And, mary bee, there's no call to be rude! Your own contributions to this thread haven't exactly been pearls of wisdom...in fact, they haven't been anything at all!

Lord knows where we'd all be if someone -- several someones -- way back when hadn't decided to take risks for their faith, or their personal belief systems, that might result in their deaths. Pledging one's life, fortune and sacred honor for some piece of paper called the Declaration of Independence was pretty wacky ...

BUT ... I still don't much think the Almighty is going to be smiling when them guys paddle they way across the River Styx.

Even though I 'm a way-liberal protestant, I'd love to believe that there's 1.) a hell and 2.) a special corner of it reserved for people who mislead the lonely, the gullible,the misguided and the compulsive conformists into grievous error for the sake of the leader's personal agenda.

And this isn't to say that we (the U.S.A.) are blameless in all our dealings with the rest of the world. Just that history is full of those who create, then manipulate True Believers into devastating wrong.

Kidnapping 60 innocent people and flying them into a building occupied by still more innocent people is insane. If your spirtual advisor counsels you to do so, he is also insane and so on.

BTW. That blood thing is pretty whacky as well. Not neary as insane but certianly rather arbitrary and counter survival.

I'll grant you that a person can in the name of religion do rational things which do not appear to be rational. I just don't think that the events of Sept. 11, 2001 qualify.

I've been offline for a few days, so didn't see where this thread was going. Murray suggests that you'd have to be insane to do something for your faith that you know for sure will lead to your death. We should remember that to a truly religious person in either Christianity or Islam, death is not the end of existence. The afterlife is not only there, but much more important than this life. People have already pointed out Christian martyrs, beginning with Jesus. There are sects of Christianity active today who, for example, will not accept blood transfusions because they believe it will pollute them with spirits--they will essentially become possessed.

If you accept the premises of this belief, namely that spirits or souls exist, that a portion or remnant of the soul can inhabit the blood, and that it is better to die and go to heaven than become possessed and ultimately go to hell, then the practice of not accepting transfusions--EVEN THOUGH YOU WILL DIE--is perfectly rational. Where is the insanity? In the beliefs themselves? Are you saying that Islamic or Christian beliefs are in themselves insane? If not, why is acting on those beliefs insane? Furthermore, for adherents of these sects, it would be insane to accept a transfusion, knowing that it will damn you to hell.

My point is that the claim of insanity is ethnocentric in this case, and can only be valid for someone who does not share the religious beliefs of the ones being labelled insane. Furthermore, "Insane" is not a diagnosis like "Liver Cancer." The concept of insanity itself is culturally conditioned, and one group's madman may be another group's shaman.

Well, since the thread won't die, I've got a bit of trivia: Short version: You can throw "SITE:.edu" in and get ONLY .edu sites.

Of course you should all know that already, anyway. This restricter could be useful: e.g. .gov, or .au or .uk, etc.

Long version: If you throw "kamikaze methamphetamine" into google, you gets lots of references to the assertion, and no legitimate citations. (A kind of urban legend phenomenon.) So I was wondering if there was a way to skew the search towards more "reputable" sites, and tried starting the query with ".edu" But that doesn't help: google ignores it because it is too common. (Still no legitimate citations on the drug thing, though.)

Thenkyew, thenkyew very much...

McGrath, I've wondered myself what must have been going on in their minds as they looked around the plane at all the people they were getting ready to snuff out. Did they have a moment's hesitation? Did they feel any sympathy at all, or were they so completely convinced that everyone on that plane was infidel that they were just ready to get the deed done and explode right through the pearly gates to be among the Chosen?

Interesting, one of the things they apparently were looking forward to was being served and attended to by celestial virgins. Too bad they couldn't just have allowed themselves to be cared for by a couple of cocktail waitresses in the actual, physical realm ... what a big, fat, hairy bummer if you go to all that trouble and then find yourself on the Other Side with Allah all in a lather because you completely ignored His "Don't Kill" rule ...

Then out spake brave Horatius,
The Captain of the Gate:
``To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his gods,
"(Lays of Ancient Rome - stanza XXVII)

By that Victorian Klingon poet Macaulay. Those aren't the things I'd die for, but I hope there are some things. And I hope it'll never come to that.

But what I can't imagine is looking a bunch of harmless strangers in the eye, and wiping them out along with me. In principle it's no different from dropping a bomb on them from a great height, and any all kinds of people seem to manage to get their heads round that. "Collateral danage" has been the preferred term, though I get the impression it's fallen out of favour since Timothy McVeigh adopted it - but I think most peiple would find the human reality of it somehow feels different.

Homo or hetero, I think they were all terribly sexually repressed and that this should be a lesson to all of us not to bottle up those essential energies. The more we make people feel guilty and dirty about sex, and the more we remove normal channels for sensual sexual expression (not just furtive episodes of getting off), the weirder human beings, especially male human beings, get.

Think how much more fun we'd all be having these days if those boys had been able to spend some quality time saying that special prayer we all love so much, "Oh God, Oh God, ohgodohgodohgod, ooooooohhhhhhh...."

I saw reference to that, too, McGrath. I also saw references, at other sites, that it has originally been invented by the Koreans and one other site said the Japanese, in 1912, but there was nothing to substantiate the claim.

Methamphetamine, more commonly referred to at the time by the trade name Benzedrine, was officially issued to troops on both sides in World War II, with, as I understand it, the most extensive use being in American units. The main object being to keep people awake and alert and so forth, for a crucial limited period.

I've never heard that it's any use for stopping people being scared. Might help you keep going even if you were scared, but that's a different thing.
