I was born into a Mormon family and raised to be a Moron (oops, Mormon). I even served a two-year mission in Argentina. Later, I married a Mormon woman and had two children. While the children were still quite young, I did some research, hoping to prove Mormonism to be correct, so that I could convert my non-Mormon friends. I was shocked to discover that Joseph Smith, the founding prophet of the Mormons, was a false prophet. He made predictions in the name of the Lord that did not come true, and the time of their possible fulfillment had passed. Therefore, I left the Morons and was excommunicated for apostasy. Upon my excommunication, my wife took the children and disappeared. Later, I got divorce papers in the mail. I have not seen her since.

Hello Universe
BestWithoutGods comments on Dec 6, 2018:
Well, I can't speak for the entire universe, but I am an infinitesimally tiny part of it, so: Hello, Freeguurl.

BestWithoutGods comments on Dec 6, 2018:
If that crooked clown ever gets close enough to me, I would imitate a feces-flinging monkey. And why not? He has tossed around a shitload of metaphorical feces. He deserves some real feces in return. Would he like brown showers as much as he likes golden showers?
A really good article about the lunatic fringe of vegans
BestWithoutGods comments on Dec 6, 2018:
Eating vegan is a good thing. This article only illustrates that ANYTHING, good or bad, can be taken to extremes and become evil. Suppose, for example, that agnostics and atheists go to an extreme, and demand that all theists be stoned to death. That would be taking a good thing to an evil extreme. I am a vegetarian leaning toward vegan. It is my choice, and I respect other people's choices. I can sit down at a meal with my omnivore friends and relatives, and I will not object when they order a steak. I will not order meat, but I do not throw a tantrum when others do.
Ever been a more Ignorant president?
BestWithoutGods comments on Dec 6, 2018:
Unfortunately, his little courtesy goof-ups are negligible next to the damage he has done (and is doing) to the country, and to the world. He is a very dangerous man in his present position of power.

"what if you're wrong" argument response
BestWithoutGods comments on Dec 5, 2018:
"It is possible that I'm wrong. I've been wrong in the past. Can you show me solid evidence that I'm wrong? I will follow the best fact-based evidence wherever it leads." Then I proceed to tear their flimsy, myth-based "evidence" to pieces with science, reasoning and logic.

BestWithoutGods comments on Dec 5, 2018:
Physically, we are what we are. Surgery can alter that to some extent. But if a person wants to be different from everyone else, that's his/her/its choice. If a person wants to be called "other," I have no problem with that. If a person wants to make up a nonsense word for for his/her/its gender -- like Pidobedot -- I have no problem with that. Let people call themselves whatever they like. I don't have to understand it, but I would allow them the liberty to live their lives as they please (within the law of the land, of course).

Do you agree that believing there's nothing but nothingness after death is as dumb as believing ...
BestWithoutGods comments on Dec 5, 2018:
The universe will not become nothing when I die. The universe will continue to exist. I will become nothing. My body will continue to exist until it completely decomposes, but the real me -- my mind, my personality, etc. -- will become nothing but a memory in the minds of my survivors. The dumb thing is to accept a myth (such as a biblical afterlife) as reality. The smart thing is to accept reality as it is.

Do you think Trump has damaged the USA? How long will it take to repair the damage?
BestWithoutGods comments on Dec 1, 2018:
Trump is damaging not only the USA, but the entire planet. His denial of science on climate change may lead to the end of life on Earth. And, yes, he is damaging the USA in many other ways, too. But when we're all extinct, that will matter little.

Crooked Donald. Lock him up! Lock him up! Lock him up! I have no problem with citizens saying "Merry Christmas" or putting manger scenes in their front yards. They have every right to do so, as they please. I do have a problem with the government promoting Christ and displaying manger scenes. It is unconstitutional for the government to promote religion. Courthouses, for example, must remain neutral concerning religion.

BestWithoutGods comments on Nov 8, 2018:
1. I'd go public instead of hiding somewhere in outer space. This would put an end to blind faith and support evidence-and-reason-based knowledge. 2. I'd get rid of Hell. If I, a god, could not convince people to be good, the fault is mine. 3. I'd tell people to stop worshiping me. People don't need to grovel at my feet. Just stand up and give me a hug.

BestWithoutGods comments on Nov 4, 2018:
I have a brother who is a rabid republican. I do not get angry with him. Rather, I pity him. He has had bad influences in his life, such as Fox News (a.k.a. Faux News). I have not rejected him, but he has rejected me because I dared to show him evidence that his claims are false. I still love him as my brother. I miss him. I pity him. But I am not angry at him, and I do not hate him. I hope that some day he will learn to think reasonably.
I have found many reasons to completely disregard Christianity. I'm an agnostic and still unsure why...
BestWithoutGods comments on Nov 3, 2018:
Are you also agnostic when it comes to Santa Claus? Or the Tooth Fairy? Those who promote such beings have the burden of proving their existence. Until they do, we are perfectly reasonable in denying that they are real. Same with gods. Those who promote gods have not been able to provide any credible evidence that they exist. Therefore, I write them off as mythological beings. Until I see good evidence for the existence of gods, I am an atheist.
Alot of people hate me. i hate alot of people. seems fair to me then again i have a heart of stone
BestWithoutGods comments on Nov 3, 2018:
I suggest that you may be happier replacing hatred with love. Everybody is a mixture of good and bad. Look for the good in others. I sometimes hate what people DO, but not the people themselves. I chalk it up to ignorance or poor upbringing or bad influences. I pity the people, but do not hate them.

The oldest male shivers when he comes in cold weather, so I call him Chilly Cheese Dog. The Female is called Cheese Louise. The young male is Julius Cheeser. (I wanted to name the young one Cheeses Christ, but here in the Bible Belt, people got upset when I suggested it.)

BestWithoutGods comments on Nov 1, 2018:
I play along with Xmas. I just ignore the religious parts, and enjoy getting together with the family. It is interesting that "Christmas" existed before Christianity. It was a pagan holiday, later adopted and christianized as Christmas. (Myths of virgin births, resurrections, etc., also existed prior to Christianity. The New Testament is just one fairly recent phase in the long evolution of mythology.)
