I am here for the community only. I find many of the discussions here interesting, but haven't really had much time lately to join in. I have been using my real name, and I think it is about time that I stopped doing that. Just the content of my posts and comments should be enough to judge me by, at least in this context.

I am rather left-wing. Voted for Nader, Bernie. At one point in my life, Angela Davis. I used to be anti-theist, but not as much lately. I am getting old. Yet I am learning more, hopefully.


Ha! This made me smirk.

Those are three of my favorites.
What does it mean if the dating profile says "looking for someone authentic"?
AtheistReader comments on Sep 5, 2018:
Ok. So it is as meaningless as I imagined. This world will be an awesome place if these dating profiles were in fact true. With so many sincere, genuine, intelligent, compassionate people who love to laugh more than anything else, you would think this dating thing would be a cinch. ;)
Sadly true.
AtheistReader comments on Nov 22, 2018:
Hmmmm. Then it is either I have a shitty heart, or all my friends are beggars, liars, etc.... Not sure which is the most offensive part about that statement...

AtheistReader comments on Oct 19, 2018:
Love is a preference, and it is on a continuous spectrum, IMHO. :) There. My poetic and romantic definition of Love. But whatever it is, oftentimes it certainly ain't by choice.
Do you make the distinction between being skeptical vs. cynical?
AtheistReader comments on Sep 2, 2018:
A cynic is made as a result of the initial failure to exercise the judicious amount of skepticism in the first place.

AtheistReader comments on Dec 4, 2018:
"Hope." Yes, hope can be the most terrifying thing on earth.... My clients often smash them before it can really hurt them. I was, however, never convinced that that was a very helpful strategy.

Computer says "just friends"! lol
AtheistReader comments on Oct 14, 2018:
My surface pro would never "friend-zone" me. We are together until one of us dies, or until I upgrade to a better version. Whichever happens first.

AtheistReader comments on Nov 16, 2018:
I don't eat babies. I don't rape women. BUT, I am liberal, arrogant, conceded, and an asshole about half the time. So... 3.5 out of 6. I fit the majority of the profiling...

I came across the word "soul" in a book I'm reading and wondered if the word (aside from relating to...
AtheistReader comments on Jul 11, 2019:
This is a matter of materialism vs. idealism (or spiritualism), isn't it? Soul isn't necessarily a religious term, if a religion is defined by a belief in some higher beings. The idea of soul is that it is some non-material essence of a person, that may or may not continue to exist after death. I am a materialist, and that means I don't believe in "soul" as defined. What I believe to be "soul" is the "programming" of our natural and physical self. Intelligence and self-awareness based on the complexity and the organization of the arrangements of the matter that make up our bodies.
