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.

Would the Republicans on this site please answer the questions below?
BD66 comments on Apr 23, 2018:
I'm Republican/Libertarian, so I'll give it a shot. Why would anyone be opposed to clean air,water and land? I'm not opposed to any of those things. I am opposed to the EPAs war on C02. CO2, H20, and O2 are the three most important compounds on the planet to support life. For the past 8 years, the EPA has been more focused on CO2 than thay have on the poisons they should be worring about. Social Security is a pyramid scheme that was sold as a trust fund to the American public by FDR's administration. This is perhaps the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the American public. There never was a trust fund. It was always money-in and money-out. Whenever politicians get money-in destined for a certain purpose, they will find a way to divert it to fit their needs. After the baby boomers retire, there will be nothing left for those of us born after 1964. I don't think anyone wants to deny anyone the ability to fight their health problems. If you are talking about Obamacare, I should be the poster boy for Obamacare. I'm self employed with a special needs son. Pre Obamacare (in 2013) I was paying health insurance premiums of $500 per month. Now through Obamacare, I would have been paying $1866 per month, but I created a partnership that got my rates down to $1702 per month. That's just another example of what happens when the Democrats attempt to improve on the free market. Why isn't the ability to pay taxes a fair method of taxation? I don't think Republicans dispute that. Wealthy people pay a much larger portion of their income in taxes than middle class and poor people. That's been the case for 105 years when Uncle Sam instituted the income tax for good. How else would you pay for the military,roads,infrastructure that everyone uses? Taxes and "pay-as-you go" are the two best options. Tollways sometimes make sense. There are a whole lot of things that can be cut out of our $700,000,000 annual military budget, that would not make us any less safe. You want less government or no government so how would anything get done? The United States went from almost nothing to the wealthiest most powerful country in the world in 1913. That was the year income taxes went into effect. The private sector is almost always capable of delivering services more efficiently than the public sector. Hope this helps.

3 Golf Stories: I once sliced a golf ball so bad that it went off the fairway, across the fairway of an adjancent hole, bounced off the side of a highway where the concrete was built up about 3" above the bare earth, came back across the adjacent fairway, and landed in the middle of the fairway I was intending to drive the golf ball onto. I could never beat my brother at golf, then one day I was about 5 feet from the hole, and I needed to two-put to beat him by one stroke. Just as I was about to putt, a fly flew up my nose, and I hit the ball about 20 feet past the hole. I ended up 4-putting, and he beat me by one stroke. (stories other people told for the rest of their lives" When we were putting on hole 7 on my hometown golf course, people would often slice their drives on hole 1 and the ball would end up in a spot that was blind to them close to the 7 green. Whenever we saw that, we would take their ball and drop it into the cup on hole number 7. A few minutes later they would show up looking for their ball, and we would point to the cup and tell them the ball went right in the cup. They would always respond "Well God Damn, that's the only time I will ever get a hole in 1!" They are probably still telling their grandchildren about the holes in one that never really happened.

How would you respond to someone who is arguing against global warming, giving “last winter was ...
BD66 comments on Feb 15, 2018:
There are a range of opinions on the subject: 1. Global Warming is a hoax thought up by the Leftist Totalitarians who want to control everything. 2. Global Warming is going on, but to quote Marco Rubio "The United States is not a planet", so there is very little we can do about it. 3. Global Warming is going on, and the primary causes are deforestation, overpopulation, and fossil fuel consumption. If and when all the fossil fuels are gone, the earth will be 2 to 4 C warmer than it is today, but the warmer earth problem will be nothing compared to the problem that we don't have any more fossil fuels. Try flying across the Pacific in a solar-powered airplane. No solution yet proposed by the lefties will solve the problem, and the costs associated with each proposed solution are enormous. The best solutions right now can be achieved on a personal level: Limit yourself to 2 children. Drive a fuel-efficient car. Don't go cruising. Don't fly across the Atlantic or Pacific all the time. Don't spend your weekends driving up and down the nearest lake in a speedboat with a 300 hp motor. Don't buy a 6000 sq. ft. house and cool it to 70 deg in the summer and heat it to 70 deg in the winter. Don't patronize vehicle racing events. Plant trees, etc. 4. Global Warming is a serious problem, and governments need to force their citizens into using public transportation, penalize them from using fossil fuels, subsidize alternative energies, build bullet trains etc. 5. "Climate change" is the #1 problem facing humanity. If we don't take drastic action today: The sea levels will rise by 10m this century. All the polar bears will die. We will have horrific hurricanes, forest fires, and floods. All the earth's major coastal cities will be underwater. Once the arctic tundra thaws, billions/trillions of tons of methane will enter the atmosphere, causing the Earth to become like the the next Venus. We spent 50% of our GDP defeating Facism in WWII, so we should spend 50% of our GDP defeating "climate change" I'm at about 3.1 on the global warming seriousness scale. I think the people at #1 and #5 are almost equally irrational. Many people close to 3 might be convinced that some government action might make sense, but they are turned off by the hysteria of people at #5. Many people who are close to 4 could likely be convinced that most government proposed solutions have much higher costs than the benefits that they offer, but they are focused on calling the people with global warming hoax theories at 1 crazy.

One other interesting possibility for a difference between straight men and straight women is that women might find the idea of an imaginary male friend (God/Jesus) who watches over them and looks out for them and loves them to be comforting. Speaking as a straight man, the idea of an imaginary male friend who watches over me, looks out for me and loves me, is a little bit creepy.

I can think of one possible difference. Men tend to socialize more over sports while women tend to socialize more over religion. You can be an Atheist man in a largely Christian community and still go to Buffalo Wild Wings with the guys to watch football. For a lot of women I know the majority of their socializing comes from attending church on Sundays and their "small group" bible study groups during the week. An Atheist woman would not have those opportunities to socialize with other women.
Do you have to be religious to believe in the soul?

There are millions of stories of ghosts, people being "visited" by dear friends or family members just after they passed away, etc. Those stories all share enough similarity to make the probability nonzero that they are true. You can believe those stories might be true and still not believe: The universe was created in 6 days. A talking snake tricked a rib-woman into eating a magic apple. An omnipotent being that created a universe of 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars 15,000,000,000 years ago decided to knock up a teenage Jewish girl 2000 years ago.
Are the 10 commandments a bucket list for Atheist?

I think it could work. If you sent me your email address, and we could do a net meeting with Google Translate on the screen.
