I came to the conclusion that the stories associated with Christianity were all nonsense at the age of 12. I continued in the Methodist Church for social reasons until the age of 18. I was almost always elected President of the Methodist Youth Fellowship, and I was on the Church board of directors. When I went to college, I had no more motivation to be involved in religion. I met a beautiful highly-motivated atheist woman when I was 22. We had 16 fantastic years together before she passed away. My second wife was not religious when I met her, but we moved from Silicon Valley to Bloomington, IL, home of the megachurches, and she because religious for social reasons. It was a disaster for our marriage. I'm now single again, looking for other like-minded atheists and agnostics.

I dreamed I got hit by a train and it woke me up. So, basically I got knocked conscious.

I've had similar dreams. One I can remember. I was playing baskeball, I fell to the floor and my arms were not in a position to protect my fall. I woke up face-down in bed, jumped up and wondered what happened to the basketball game.

BD66 comments on Nov 26, 2018:
What's amazing is that the Santa Claus story is much more plausible than the story of a being that created a universe with 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars knocked up a teenage Jewish girl, then entered Earth in human form ~2000 years ago. Adults don't believe the Santa Claus story, but they do believe the Jesus story.

BD66 comments on Nov 25, 2018:
There is a big difference. In 2008, there was a lot of bad debt out there. In 2018, there isn't so much bad debt, it's just that the Federal Reserve is hiking interest rates so fast that those that borrowed money are being forced to sell. The forced selling is what is killing the market. Jerome Powell has been Trump's biggest mistake.

BD66 comments on Nov 25, 2018:
I realized the Bigfoot thing was impossible after about 1 season of that show. The big guy (don't remember his name), said "Deer are the favorite food of Squatches". At that point I realized that for the past 50 years, 10 million deer hunters are out in the woods looking for deer. If bigfoots are out there looking for the same deer, there would be many, many deer hunter/bigfoot encounters, but there are none.

What we are seeing today with Trump and Trump equivalents in other countries is just reversion to a pre-WWII mideset.

India and China however have about 2,400,000,000 people that want to live the same high energy consumption lifestyle we are living in the USA. Whatever we do to reduce our consumption of coal and other fossil fuels will be a pointless gesture that will spread economic pain to the middle class and lower classes. In the meantime, China and India will continue to consume more coal and other fossil fuels until those resources are gone.

That made a big impression on me, and I've told very few lies since.

What is "Compartmentalization" with regard to religion?
BD66 comments on Oct 11, 2018:
Suspension of Disbelief is another potential explanation. Sane rational people can sit through 2 hours of a movie or TV show about a zombie apocalypse, dragons, vampires, etc. Sitting through a church service is no different. The difference is that most people don't let movies about zombies, dragons, and vampires influence their lives. When they let their life be influenced by stories about zombie Jesus, their compartmentalization is failing.
