Budgie comments on Dec 27, 2019:
When I was a child and before I had heard of cults that peddled door to door, there was a knock at our door. I answered and the person said they were jehovah's witnesses and could they talk to my dad. I call out to Dad who comes to the door, as he is shuttng it behind him he hears me say to mum "Who is Joe and what has he done wrong that he needs a witness." He looked them in the eyes and tried not to laugh at them. The peddlers in our town got a lot of flack, my friend's mum chased them off the property with a wet mop, and another set of parents were interrupted when their children were out and they were enjoying themselves so the Dad (all 6ft of him) grabbed the closest robe and opened the door, it was his wife's robe and she was 5ft it was a bit short and it was obvious what he had been about to do. He looked them in the face and asked if they were lost. They went red and left. I think people spent a lot of time working out how to outdo each other in getting rid of them.

Support the old saying that you catch more flies with honey than vinegar. While on here I refer to religions as cults I do not say that to those that are religious in my workplace. I try to be respectful (there are limits) and generally we avoid discussions on belief systems but I do not hold back if asked. She was very honest and brave to have stepped away from her family, I hope she is able to help some of them also realize what they are doing is spiteful and horrible. That said the family will probably now ban members from using Twitter/the evil internet.

Budgie comments on Dec 20, 2019:
As a child went to church every Sunday complete with white gloves (I loved those gloves) and a special bag with some money in it to put on the church plate when it was past around. Read passages from the bible in church and went to kiddies Sunday school. All I remember from it is that I answered that the festival being celebrated the the Overpass (passover) The family was not hard core religious as I see it, grace was said at meal times but that was about it. Somewhere in my teenage years I thought about all of the praying I had done for the starving in Africa and there was still starving in Africa, the deaths of some wonderful people one a fantastic mother her daughter only 5 years old. The catholic priest who refused to hold a service for a scout leader who committed suicide, (then my mum went at him saying he had failed our friend who did not feel he could go to his spiritual leader for help, we got a service for him) just lots of things that I started to question. I decided bad things just happen (my grandfather died on my birthday before seeing my younger brother who had been born that year) that praying did not change things but doing things did. Gave up on xtian religion (even the gloves too hot in the tropics to wear them) a few battles with my family but more over my obnoxious teenage behaviour and the fact my father disliked my music. Explored other religions and belief systems but got into trouble when I questioned things ie that in older religions it was people trying to explain the world around them ie gods of thunder, the sun etc. I got told, when I raised the issue that all of the older religions had a god/dess of each type of natural element, that I did not know what I was talking about and that the god of thunder (or something ) was the major god of one group but only a minor god of another. Decided that is was all hokum and stopped believing in any of it. Got interested in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and read about Douglas Adams and some of what he believed. Watched a lot of Monty Python and The Goodies, sad that my ideology was formulated by TV shows but I grew up in a tiny remote community there was not much of a library and not a lot of radical information out there. My best friend was not christened which helped me to start looking at life differently.

What are your thoughts on home schooling?? Many Christian homes think this is a very good thing. ...
Budgie comments on Dec 18, 2019:
This is not a simple yes/no situation. The reasons for homeschooling vary, I had a friend who was homeschooled due to medical issues. She could not attend as she had to have many surgeries and would at times have open wounds on her legs. She was in primary school and so her parents taught her but she still had contact with her peers as long as none of them had any kind of infection. Another was traveling with her parents they were both teachers, one in English/Science the other Maths/Languages. There are those that do it to prevent interactions with people and hence ideas they do not like. If those ideas are never presented nor talked about it means a massive deficient in the students education. If there is no social interaction then it reduces their ability to engage with a wide variety of people. I think it would be better if schools opened up a bit more and allowed a more flexible learning environment. However, that requires governments to spend money on education and not many of them are willing to do that. Sending you child to a cult based school is just the same as home schooling because of your beliefs they are not getting a wide cross section just those that support the cult's view. I think the reason for it, the quality of the curriculum the students are learning, the skills of the people who are guiding them all come into play.

I told them I didn't think I just collected something because if I didn't then I would be told to do it. They left me alone after that.

Budgie comments on Dec 16, 2019:
Mother Teresa was a sadist, she allowed people to suffer saying it was their way to god. There was a "good catholic" nurse who decided to spend a year serving in one of her "homes" in India. She left after three months broken and depressed. They reused hypodermic needles, there was never enough food or blankets for the women, when she complained she was shut down. She described conditions that were unacceptable but the nuns said it was fine. Soon after she left the church (don't know if she stopped believing) Never has any of the money donated to teresa been scrutinized to see where it goes (I would suggest the church) as this woman said enough money was donated but never seemed to get spent on the women. It was eye opening to read, that and the magdelene laundries tell you everything about the mindset of cultists.

When the government of my country (run by a cultist) is passing legislation allowing cults to discriminate against those they do not like I will be angry and I will fight for them to be held accountable for their hate and discrimination. We are not allowed to discriminate against them for the same reasons (we are not a cult) but they are allowed to refuse, help (as in medical, emergency care), services (as in selling a wedding cake), resources (as in a homeless shelter), employment, (termination of employment based on sexual orientation, marriage status etc) just because their book of lies says they don't agree with it.

There is a treatment that is starting to take off called The Sinclair Method it involves taking a tablet which locks off the part of the brain that gets pleasure from drinking (or at least that is what I can recall I may have the specifics wrong) The person does not have to stop drinking as long as they take the tablet. Obviously any psychological issues that are driving someone to drink need to be dealt with my trained professionals or they will simply head towards another drug. I do not believe that the tablet works for all addictions.

What do you think about 'intuition?' In many situations, I had a feeling something wasn't right. ...
Budgie comments on Dec 1, 2019:
One of my friends jokes about me being a skeptical psychic (she believes in that stuff) there are times when I think or dream of something and then it happens or something close enough that it could possibly be what I dreamt/thought. An example neighbour tells me she is pregnant for no reason I think of my cousin who lost a baby at 7months gestation. I don't say anything to the neighbour but she loses her baby (not at 7 months) so was this some sort of psychic event or did my brain rapidly work out that her husband already had a child that was about 10 years old, she and her husband had been together for about 5 years at least (the length of time I had lived next to them) never had she talked about children or having children, (were they trying and it was too painful to talk about) she was not a young woman in terms of child bearing years I would suggest closer to 40 than 30. Did my brain do all of the maths and go there is a high chance she could lose the baby think of your cousin in her 20's perfectly healthy who lost her baby for no known reason. Intuition is simply the brain processing without us realising it. I went to visit family and saw my uncle and thought he is sick. While there were no outward signs there was something off about him something must of been different enough that my brain picked up on it, maybe a smell or the way he was walking/acting. He, in fact, already had the cancer that would kill him but no one, not even he, knew it yet. We also tend to remember the events that happen rather than the ones that don't. I was staying with the above friend and had a dream that her husband was in a car crash. Not an unreasonable dream as he spent most of the day on the road driving from job to job and we were in a big city. When I got up in the morning he had not left for work, do I tell him about my dream, knowing that he and my friend put stock in that stuff, or not? I decided not to. I simply said "take care out there" as he left. He came home and talked of the near miss he had. But he may have had near misses every other day without talking about them or we did not store them in memory as he was home safe and it was a city near misses happen often. Do I remember it because of the link to the dream I had.

Budgie comments on Nov 25, 2019:
Given that the prisons are full of xtians and not atheist I am guess not. "We have this statistic thanks to a 2013 report released by the United States Federal Bureau of Prisons obtained by blogger Hemant Mehta. The report looks at all the federally run prisons in the U.S. — that makes up about 218,000 prisoners — and the inmates’ religious affiliations. When they say that less than one percent identify as atheist, they actually mean 0.07 percent. That’s right, 0.07 percent. That is way less than one percent."

The sort of music I like listening to in the dark with glow lights or incense which I am waving around. It is the little things that amuse me some days.

For me it is a case of the men in power thought, "I can not answer that, there is no answer for that," and so went unknowable, unfathomable do not question, blind obedience obey obey etc. It is all a load of made up rubbish. If there is a sky fairy out there then it is malicious, vindictive and nasty not something I would want to put my faith in.
Can you love a racist? My boyfriend and I were talking about racism one day when he says "My dad's ...

Yes it is possible to have respect and love for a parent who you can recognise is still carrying the values they were raised with and not questioning them. My father that I loved and adored for all of his good traits was born and brought up in a vastly different world, he was sent to catholic schools and went to church, he did not agree with homosexuality, he was a racist. These are all products of the time he was raised in the fact that he did not question his upbringing and was supported in this by his wife (not my mother) who was also raised the same. She is much worse and her I ignore. I would point out that what he was saying was racist (mainly jokes) and not funny. But like Matthew I would tell him I loved him. It did not help that my father started to develop dementia and was then no longer able to think clearly about issues and with the nasty wife he had he spouted her hatred/ intolerance of people. I think you are in a tough place and will need to play it by ear as to how you respond to him and if or when he meets your children.
Bad Student. Good Thinker. :P

I am a teacher and I could not in good conscious mark a question correct if it is not. I would get into so much trouble because I would point out there is a correct answer and then there are a thousand wrong ones. Use a wrong one and I am marking it wrong because my beliefs say that you have to be truthful. Whose beliefs get precedence?
