I’m a guitarist, but I can remove your appendix for you if you want to save a little money. It’s 50 bucks an hour and I will need you to hold the flashlight.
If life gives you lemons, it's really not that bad. I mean, you can do tequila shots with lemons. ...
ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 29, 2018:
No but I love artichokes and since they make all wines taste bad break out the tequila.
What makes life worthwhile for you?
ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 29, 2018:
We are the lottery winners, we have consciousness, most of the universe is unaware of the universe. Anyone of us could just as easily never existed, in fact that was more likely to begin with. If that don’t make life worthwhile try getting a pizza and some beer and see if that tics your box:)

ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 29, 2018:
I loved Black Sabbath when I was in high school 30 years ago, my taste has changed but I remember it fondly. Since I sell guitars for a living, can we stop with the Iron Man riff? Also.... No Stairway!

Just say “ok” and change the subject. It’s ok, I here you, I understand how you feel, thank you. Once that’s out there say, I’m not going to discuss religion or politics... I would add politics because the religious like to link the two. “Ok” Defuses while taking the wind out of their sails, ... What you’re doing is letting them know that you hear them and you understand their concern and did you see that great picture Tommy did that’s on the refrigerator? Do we have any pie left? Do you think a canoe trip would be fun this summer? ... in other words, you need to be asking some of the questions and not let other people determine the direction of the conversation. If you can take it to a place where those things are simply not discussed you will have essentially agreed to disagree.

ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 26, 2018:
From what I can tell they don’t actually know what their objecting to because they don’t take the time to listen. There are of course exceptions but if I’m going to paint that demographic with one brush I’ve likely covered most of the canvas.

ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 26, 2018:
Seasons this far south are subtle, pretty sure my local hardware store stocks sleds and snow shovels because it’s a chuckle. I use a calendar to determine spring, time to stock up on canned goods because hurricane season is coming.

Evolution of homo sapiens in the future?
ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 23, 2018:
Funny that we call the people of the future “we” when “we” will all be dead. It’s evidence built into the language that while we as individuals can’t beat death our genes can. It’s just a shame it lives on without this versions memories and consciousness. We will have 6 toes, big heads and our genetalia will all be above average, isn’t that nice?
Because this is what we're currently having, and nobody does this better than Billie Holliday-Stormy...
ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 23, 2018:
I’m going to have to agree... I love lots of versions but this is about the best.

So what’s the point? The responses I received to my fearing and dreading death seem to boil down ...
ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 23, 2018:
I had a dear friend die a few days ago, made me ponder some of the same. I’m not thinking my clearest at the moment but I’ll take a crack at this. 18 months ago on Election Day my Dad died, now my friend Bob and the older I get the more that’s going to happen. My dad had 2 kids, I have 3, my sister has two, not the end of the line... in Jerasic park the “line”, “nature finds a way” makes sense, we are an unbroken line of evolving genetics going back to the first spark of life on the planet, our consciousness, our being sentient is just how nature has found a way with us. We will disappear but we will go on! My friend Bob had no kids, his dad had two, maybe the line will go on, maybe not... all the twisting of time and history and his line stops here... The Why, the purpose is just to continue... we want it to be grander and have a purpose behond just survival but I don’t think it exists... religion is a tempting way to create a comforting answer when none exists. You can’t make yourself believe so it’s not like I can decide to be religious and get a more satisfying answer. Solis and comfort comes from knowing you are leaving the world a little better for those that will have the same questions... but if no answer exists was there ever really a question? I choose to be here for the purpose of helping my kids have full meaningful lives, that’s it’s own reward... I have lots of stuff, pictures, trinkets... a museum that represents where we came from but tells us nothing of where we are going. We are here, we are here and it’s a lucky accident. Perhaps the best answer anyone has ever come up with is 42. The best thing we can do is be a social animal, make conectiona, be happy... if life is a dead end street then we best party in it. It is sad that party goes on without us but not as sad as staying home or leaving too soon. I doubt this long winded post answers you question, we should spend more time enjoying life and less time questioning it.
Burnt Bread
ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 23, 2018:
Our toaster is way close to the smoke alarm. I fan it with a paper plate at least twice a week.
What’s the longest you’ll allow dirty dishes to be in the sink?
ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 23, 2018:
I do them after dinner, if while cooking I can already sense my disdain for doing them I’ll break out the paper plates, unless I’m making soup, I hate how soup runs off the edges of a paper plate.

Do you like food after it’s been put in the microwave from being in the refrigerator?
ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 23, 2018:
Depends on the food, leftover rice works great, add a touch of water and cover with a wet paper towel and it’s better than the first run. If you actually learn what foods work and what doesn’t it’s a useful tool... I’d rather eat pizza cold.

ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 23, 2018:
Why is it unanswerable? A man made construct void of rational thought and contradicting science. I don’t consider that unanswerable, that’s the answer. If I decide that I have an invisible friend just because I say so you can’t prove I don’t, but you know I don’t because it’s ridiculous.

Atheist principles - would atheists be interested in listing basic atheist principles?
ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 22, 2018:
I don’t need help to figure out right from wrong. One of the arguments against religion is that we don’t need religion to be moral. Treat people as you would like to be treated and don’t be a dick. That’s short enough to put on a bumper sticker. However, if you can give good arguments for such a book I’ll keep an open mind.

ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 22, 2018:

ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 22, 2018:
When you concider all the flags of the world and realize each flag says for those people or governments this is ours, we are better than you, we took it through blood shed and we will defend it, we don’t seem like such an advanced civilization. Being able to blow things up better does not equal more civilized!
I think one of the worst tenets of religion is unquestioned belief. If you believe well enough... ...
ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 22, 2018:
Didn’t have a belief to give up but I’m somewhat better at being my true self, so what I gave up was pretending for the indoctrinated. A few small exceptions that if I did not allow it would be justifiable to call me an asshole.
At what age did you find your calling / success / attain your life long goals?
ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 22, 2018:
I’m here now and everything is fine, I don’t look at or expoerence life in those terms, I take care of my family, I work, I play music... sometimes I laugh sometimes I cry, too busy being human to waist my life reaching for what in the end will be meaningless and would have spread myself to thin for the people I love. Be happy now with what you have, life is very short, as I’ve been harshly reminded by reality this week.

ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 22, 2018:
For most of my life when asked what religion I was I would routinely answer, “delicatessen”. Now that I’m vegan I guess I need a new religion:) I’ll perhaos change my answer to “framers market”. Nobody has yet assumed my answer meant Satin, at least not to my face.

Does it bother anybody when you see someone clicking, like, on all posts & comments?
ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 21, 2018:
I will at times click them all, I read each one and consider my click their reward for contributing, long as they have done it without pissing me off they get a like... as far as points go, remember the post you like is getting points as well, never has upset me to get more people acknowledge my post, like a nod that we have that in-common, it’s how we build a community.
Retreating from The Now
ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 21, 2018:
You are right that when the world seems crazy and you have a full plate it can make meditation harder. Focus just on the physical now, your breath or the tip of your nose and if for one second you can do it that’s all there is, do it again... no judgment, it is what it is and nothing more.
Are there any spiritual atheists out there? I don't buy into any man-made religions, but still ...
ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 21, 2018:
I think we have mental abilities not yet fully understood by science and we have mislabeled it for lack of s better term. So I’m spiritual in that I seek these connections and attempt to explore what science has only begining to understand... but I don’t believe in a spirit that can be described as an intelligence outside of our own minds. It’s more of an awareness that comes from allowing the rest of the mind to be silent.
Sounds about right
ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 21, 2018:

ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 21, 2018:
Jewish guilt remains long after the religion has left. But you said “had”, so you got past it... by the way Jewish guilt is no different than Catholic guilt or any other kind... let it go, see it as a cloud passing your vision and let it pass, as soon as you try and push it away it’s got you☯️
Am I the only atheist that doesn’t smoke pot?
ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 21, 2018:
I believe it’s pervasive in every segment of the population because it should be legal, it’s all about money, it will be legal when and only when the government is profiting off it. You here about people drinking and becoming violent all the time, the only thing in danger after you smoke pot is a box of cookies.
Hahahahaha!

Is all religious belief based on the mystical?
ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 21, 2018:
Yup, the entire premise is a man made lie! At its best an illusion and at worst a reason to kill because of that illusion.
Should Religion Be Taught in Schools?
ArdentAtheist comments on Apr 21, 2018:
Not as a truth or way of life/death ... as part of sociology as it relates to history and what religion has done for art, music and architecture while being certain not to leave out the death & suffering.

I use it for the severe nausea associated with debilitating migraine headaches and playing guitar. I’m all for medicinal use and don’t see recreational as any different than a drink, in fact drinking is more harmful.
