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 she became religious for social reasons. I've been trying to get divorced from her for 5 years. I've had a Catholic girlfriend for the past 3.5 years, and we get along great. She doesn't try to convert me, and I don't try to convert her.

Assange Must Not Also Die in Jail
BD66 comments on Sep 2, 2019:
Check out this video. It's in Cebu, Philippines. (My girlfriend's hometown). People get arrested, many of them are innocent, and they must spend years in the local jail waiting for a trial. The warden hired a consultant to make their time in the local jail as tolerable as possible. Guys like Assange get lots of attention, but there are millions of innocent poor people languishing in jails around the world.

Then I said "Then I picked flat-top grill", and my girlfriend said "I'm NOT going there on your birthday" Then I said "How about Biaggis" and they both agreed. Then I said "Did you learn anything son?"

I hated Church I hated Sunday School I never had vacation Bible school after age 4. I did enjoy Methodist Youth Fellowship, and I was always elected President of the group even though I never believed the religious BS. Most of my best friends were in the group. Most of the pretty girls in my school were in the group. We took Canoe Trips, went to the Michigan Coast, went to the Ozarks. Lots of fun, it would have been even better if we didn't have to mix in the religion.

I have never blocked anyone on this site. I disagree with the political positions of many people here, but I have found I have a lot in common with them on issues outside of politics. What bothers me is the site is too compartmentalized. Many people just want to have their own views reinforced. Conservatives post things on "Conservative Atheists", with a header like "This will make the Liberals Heads explode", then they won't post it in the Politics section. If you don't have your views challenged, and you are not forced to reexamine them, you will never grow.

In my own specific case, I believe there may be some form of life after death, based on experiences my father and brother had with people who had just passed away. My father and brother are two of the most sane, rational people I know. That's the spiritual part. As far as the religious goes, I don't believe any organized religion has any particular insight with respect to how the universe was created, what that creator wants for us, what happens after you die, etc. That's where the "not religious" comes from.

Here is a simpler way to look at the problem. One atmosphere of pressure is equivalent to 9 meters of water, so if we were able to turn all the gas in Earth's atmosphere into liquid, it would be 9 meters deep. Mt Everest is approximately 9000 meters above sea level, so we would need to have 1000 times more water vapor in the atmosphere than we have for all gasses today.

Nancy Reagan didn't start the war on drugs. Like many things, the war on drugs was started with good intentions, but the US Government messed it up.
