ArdentAtheist comments on May 28, 2018:
I’m a badly phone addicted slave to technology. Between this and Twitter, I’m never gone long. I suppose I was the same with FB before politics destroyed it and I take full responsibility for that. I think what’s good about this is A. You don’t mind if I’m atheist and B. None of you are family or friends (off line).

ArdentAtheist comments on May 28, 2018:
I’ve had a bunch of really cool interesting cars but the first purchased with my own money was a 76 Chevy Chevette piece of crap for $600. I think dam near every other car I ever had was cooler except for the piece of crap I’m currently exploring the limits of patience with.

ArdentAtheist comments on May 27, 2018:
I never thaught about it, I’m struggling to think of one... it’s a little unsettling not to have an answer, it seems a reasonable question, I’ve had many good times. 3 great kids, musical successes, marriage. Kids are big, divorced and the fan left, lol ... played Carnegie hall when I was five and it’s been all downhill since then... not really:) I mean I did play Carnegie but has not really been all downhill, but it has been hilly.

ArdentAtheist comments on May 27, 2018:
I have no interest in watching adults get overpaid for playing a kids game... if it’s possible to have les than zero interest in it that would be me... maybe partly because I’m colorblind and loose track of what team I’m supposed to care about.. I like beer so I’ve been known to keep my friends company while they root for some guy with a ball or what have you.

Do you believe in life after death of any kind?
ArdentAtheist comments on May 27, 2018:
Belief could be a strong word for it as it is temperd with a scale tipping amount of doubt. I have and do study some Buddhist philosophy and technics and it feels plausible when I’m in meditation. I think of it as a energy net that we come from and return to, I can invision this being part of the natural world not requiring an intelligence or creator, this can lead to a feeling as if reincarnation is plausible. It’s what I would like to believe but without better evidence than simply how I feel, I can’t trust it as an actual reality.

ArdentAtheist comments on May 27, 2018:
I find here people with good ideas who I can learn from and a place for what I believe to be heard by a somewhat more receptive group. I like sharing what I’ve learned and socializing with people grounded in reality. Many of the posts I have made here would not have been well received on FB... Although Twitter does allow me a good outlet and outreach it is somewhat less personal so I do both that and this. My intention is not dating but if it was this sight is not big enough as anyone I would have liked is geographically challenged. As it grows that will hopefully change.
Make no mistake. They were always here.

ArdentAtheist comments on May 27, 2018:
It’s a good question. I’ve not asked in awhile. This is built into the teachings of meditation based on buddhist practice . I studied this and can see I’ve let my story filter back in, as if it was real. As atheists we accept reality. Our story has nothing to do with this moment. Don’t let the shackles of the past restrain you. I’m going to revisit this aspect of letting go in today’s meditation. This is not some silly meme and it’s defiantly worth the effort. It’s not somthing to pursue, it’s simply somthing to “let go”.
Punishment
ArdentAtheist comments on May 27, 2018:
If someone were to constantly post things I found offensive I would block them, not an angry blocking but rather just as a way to adjust my settings so I won’t see their posts. That is if I were offended. The way I actually role is if I don’t like something I don’t click like and move along... I always vote for free speech :-)
>How will you vote?
ArdentAtheist comments on May 27, 2018:
I’ll vote straight Democratic ticket. On some levels I do like the Libertarian party but when push comes to shove I’ve never been able to vote for any of them as they’ve either been idiots or I simply did not want to cast my vote to the wind. I like the idea of 3rd party but in reality I want my vote to have an impact for what I want and not simply against what I don’t. I voted for Obama, I voted for Hillary and I sent some of my hard-earned money to Bernie. Voting 3rd party is just going to swing the vote for a mainstream candidate so far better to vote for the mainstream candidate so if nothing else you know exactly who and what you are voting for. Help someone real get in office and kick every republican out at every opportunity. I’ve kind of decided that being a libertarian is kind of like being a Catholic, it’s putting your heart and mind into something that doesn’t exist.
Pope Francis
ArdentAtheist comments on May 26, 2018:
Concidering the perspective of the Pope that’s better than telling the kid his dads going to hell... it’s not like we would expect him to denounce religion. What the kid needs is an adult in his life with a grasp on reality.

ArdentAtheist comments on May 25, 2018:
A quote that I read in a meme somewhere… “If you’re lonely you’re in bad company“. Of course there’s more to it than that but your post brought to mind that meme. There is however some truth to it though. if I’m not in a great mood getting together with friends can lift me out of it but if I am in a great mood I can toil in solitude for hours and wonder where the time went.
I shouldn't have to state the obvious, but men on this website who are hoping to date might want to ...
ArdentAtheist comments on May 25, 2018:
Kindness kindness kindness ... I strive for this daily, I fail at it on occasion and I succeed at it often. If I were here to date I would be no different than you see me now. I think you give good food for thought, we should all pause and reflect on how we are being and how we can be better. I will make an effort to pause and breath before I respond and perhaps this will encourage others to do the same. If our intention is to be a community let’s be a community to be proud of.

ArdentAtheist comments on May 23, 2018:
That’s actually quite interesting… I also just emerged from a YouTube rabbit hole… Back in the 80s I ran sound for a band called the Ookies at the 9th St. Playhouse in Manhattan, they were on the bill with several other acts. One of these acts was a punk rock accordion player who happened to be a little person named Malcolm Tent, I never forgot him in all this time, I really should have let it go, it tainted my flawed memory, but I had to look for it.

Apparently, asking for evidence for reincarnation is a personal attack?
ArdentAtheist comments on May 22, 2018:
Of all the things that are with all probability false reincarnation is the one I most wish was true... I also wish I had a million dolors and didn’t have to go to work today. The reason atheism isn’t a religion is simply because when you envoke reality religion dies.

If you need to put stuff in your coffee you don’t really like coffee, you like stuff. It took training my pallet a bit... So much quicker to get in and out of the Circle K in the morning if you take it black, now it’s my preference. I put sugar in espresso and nothing in American coffee.
Scary ass neighbor
ArdentAtheist comments on May 21, 2018:
When my kids were in preschool not once but twice other kids in the school were mauled, hospitalized and permimantly disfigured by family beloved pit bulls ... They’re great dogs until they’re not. I’ve never heard of that happening with a beagle. I love all dogs, but a pit is simply not a sensible family pet... In both cases we are talking about friendly pooches that were up until that moment lovable family pets. Having seen the stitched up face of a three-year-old I don’t think you’re going to convince me. This dog is muzzled and I don’t know that they have small kids so perhaps fine... just saying.

ArdentAtheist comments on May 21, 2018:
I have not seen Christians trying to get rid of guns… While I do not want to get rid of all guns I do want to get rid of assault weapons, raise the age to obtain a weapon and have rigorous background checks. It’s what we call common sense gun laws, Trump supporters wouldn’t understand.

ArdentAtheist comments on May 20, 2018:
Eh... I was raised Catholic, it didn’t stick... it was well intended cultural life of being a NY Italian... I’m not scared. I think some people like to live in the drama. Basically I was sent to church and school, school was the one I was told to get good grades in with it’s science classes:) it’s not abuse, it’s how culture has always explained the world... Anyone that believes religion these days also was sent to school and if they can’t choose wisely it’s kind of on them. It’s not about blame, it’s about cultural evolution and evolution takes time.
It's almost 4:20 here, so....
