A bit of a rant ahead.
Budgie comments on Dec 27, 2020:
All I can say is that there are going to be lots of changes coming up especially when you get to Uni. Some friends may drift away, some may and then return later, keep your options open, do not turn your back on any of them but let them go if they want. Do not take it personally the person you are going to be in 10 years will have some very different views to you right now on a whole range of issues. If your friend feels the need to be away from you then tell her you will respect it but will be there for her any time she wants to connect. Your Mum is probably thinking about how hard it is for you to be part of the wider community when you do not hold the same views as that community. The same way that parents of LGBT kids probably told them to fake it as being different was going to be too hard and they would not get accepted. I am an adult and a vegetarian and some people (mainly work not friends) still tell me (when we are organising an evening out) that it would be easier if I just ate like everyone else. So this need to have everybody the same does not change it is a cross we have to bear, or a bear we have to cross (sorry being silly) ;}

I dream of living in a post-religious society.
Budgie comments on Dec 24, 2020:
I think the community things but that can also be dangerous as you then get the herd mentality. I think the recognition of adulthood/responsibility for your own actions (as in confirmation where the child is accepting responsibility for their following of the faith, Jewish bar mitzvahs) Actual ceremonies to acknowledge the passing of one age to the next.

Does anyone in here believe in reincarnation?
Budgie comments on Dec 21, 2020:
The rational part of me says nope, the fanciful part of me swears that two of my previous dogs were reincarnated into the last two that I had (so basically the two dogs showed the same behaviour traits as my previous dogs yes I know I did say the fanciful part of me) I also once had a dream of being with three of my aunts in Edwardian clothes in Scotland on a trip and when I woke it took me a long time to lock into place the fact I had never been to Scotland I was so convinced I had been there. Not sure what caused that one which parts of the brain fired up to produce that feeling and dream. Yes I wanted to go to Scotland but it was not being planned for the near future. I have also been told I have the same mannerisms as a great aunt who I never met and very similar features. What is inherited and what is learned? Did my mother (who would have met her occasionally as a small child) have the same mannerisms that I learned from her?

Should some research topics be banned or results censored?
Budgie comments on Dec 18, 2020:
I did not have time to listen to all of it, chickens to feed, clothes to wash, house to clean etc. But am thinking of getting his book. In Special Ed when dealing with parents we oft remind ourselves of the phrase, The apple does not fall far from the tree. Many of our parents have the same problems as our students. Define controversial research. Knowledge in and of itself is not the problem, how people get the knowledge (torturing others, barbaric practices etc) or use the knowledge (to exclude/exterminate) is the problem. If children are screened at birth and those that show they are only going to be middling students are all sent to a poorly funded school where the curriculum is set at the basics or those that show they can excel are sent to a school that is funded at a higher level in order to provide an exciting and enriching education, that is a problem. This creates social problems and discrimination. If children are screened at birth and those that show to be at risk are put into special programs early, parents are educated in how to help them at home before they come to school and schools are given extra funding to help them achieve all that they can then I am all for it. Early intervention has been shown to help many types of children with different conditions. My fear is that we end up with the first scenario not the second.

WSJ Essayist: Atheists Should Just “Lie” to Their Kids When Talking About Death | Hemant Mehta |...
Budgie comments on Dec 7, 2020:
I had to deal with the death of a classmates to a grade T, 1 and 2. We are talking 5 to 7 year olds. They asked all sorts of questions, I answered as honestly as I could, some were going to the funeral, again when they asked what was going to happen I answered as honestly as I could and with as many options as I could, I did not know if she was going to be buried or cremated so I had to explain both methods of bodily disposal to the students. I thought long and hard about how to explain cremation, and came up with they put her body into a machine that turns it to ashes. We had conversations about how sometimes the human body gets so badly damaged that the doctors can not save the person, how it was important to remember the person and to care about the people who loved her. I had a bundle of really well adjusted kids and most adults coming into our room could not cope. We had the months of the year on the wall with each child's name on the month for their birthday. One little boy (5yrs) was reading off the months and names to a support person when he got to her name he said "She died" and moved on the support person looked shocked and stared at me I simply told her that we say it like it is. I recently met one the the students from this class and she said while it was one of the most horrific things she had to deal with as a child (it was her best friend) she said that all of the talking we did around how we felt and how the students got to choose when the chair was removed (they did not want to remove her chair from her desk) and being honest helped. Explain it in terms the kids can understand, I once explained death to a three year old as you can never ever get any more presents from anyone no matter how much they want to give you one. She was very reward orientated.

Budgie comments on Dec 5, 2020:
I am sort of conflicted over this. I knew the man many years ago as I worked with his wife. He seemed like a fairly decent bloke with standards, she definitely had standards. I accept that people change over years (and it was years ago that I knew them) and that his work self could be a very different person to the social one I met. If he has hidden the knowledge that defense workers were acting illegally then he should have to answer to that. I always felt it was wrong (but completely in line with the lieberal party) to put a military person in the role of GG.

The Jehovah’s Witnesses Are About to Lose Their Tax-Exempt Status in Australia | Hemant Mehta | ...
Budgie comments on Dec 1, 2020:
Should not have given them any time to think about it sign or straight away lose your tax exempt and be fined what the NRS believes the victims should be paid. No funding or tax exempt until you sign pay for a year in advance and the fine. Being too easy on a cult. But then as Scomo is a cultist we could not expect them to be treated the same way they treat their victims.
From my News feed today.
Budgie comments on Nov 30, 2020:
Love it when we get it right when we are recognised by leaders in the field. Bet he wishes he was working in Australia not the US. I mean even with Scomo trying to kill people we had state governments taking the hard line needed.

Now we count deaths when not an active case [abc.net.au]
Budgie comments on Nov 30, 2020:
Given perfectly healthy active 20 to 50 year olds with no previous medical conditions are being brought into hospitals after having strokes and the only link they have found so far is that all of them had or were recovering from Covid 19 then their deaths are the result of Covid 19. Given children are developing a disease similar to Kawasaki's syndrome and dying and the only connection is that they all had Covid 19 then they also died from the condition. If these people never had Covid 19 they would not have suffered the secondary condition therefore Covid 19 caused their deaths. You are determined to find any reason to rail against the powers that be over this disease and their handling of it because you disagree with them but you have yet to give up a better way to deal with it. I believe that the state governments have done a fair to brilliant job, handled fast balls that they had no way to predict with professionalism and determination. The major mess ups came from the federal government who like the US don't care about people just their own profits. I am thankful that the vast majority of state leaders took a hard line, made unpopular decisions and are now out there finding ways to get the economy kick started again. Here in the Territory we are suffering a budget disaster, jobs have gone our EBA is being renegotiated and all we are getting in terms of pay is a $1000 bonus at the end of each year for the next three years. It is going to be tough but we will find a way. My pay will not rise with inflation, and CPI for the next three years, at the end of it I am going to be financially worse off then I currently am. I will take this on the chin in the hopes that the stimulus packages coming out will help the smaller industries to get back on their feet. That the economy will start to improve. There is a plan for a building stimulus package that I hope to get that will allow me to upgrade my kitchen (I have been saving for 5 years so have most of the money) This is how our government is helping us now but there is a cost that I am going to wear being no pay increase for three years.
Ohio Republicans File Bill Forcing Doctors to “Reimplant Ectopic Pregnancy” | Hemant Mehta | ...
Budgie comments on Nov 29, 2020:
It is sad that the american taliban are taking over America. It is sad how little science they know. The cluster of cells in the ectopic pregnancy would not survive. The embryo has to form the connection to the placenta within days and once that is severed it will not happen again. All this bill will do is cause further harm and discomfort to the mother when she then has to pass out the clump of cells if she does not develop a septic uterus from the dead cells.
Always wondered.

Budgie comments on Nov 17, 2020:
As someone who grew up in scouting and for whom Scouting leaders were people to look up to and were decent people this saddens me and I hope they step up and help the youth that were harmed. I can honestly say that there was no discrimination in our scout troop, I was an out atheist and that was fine when I said a promise I omitted the god part and they were cool with that. Our camps were held in tents that were 6 boys and one leader, as a female that meant I was in a tent with 6 boys aged around 6 to 10yrs old. As a Venturer leader we put up one large tarp and everyone slept under that. I would suggest that the intent of scouting has been perverted by the dogma of cults if they are saying you have to worship our god.

I have gone up to the front desk to pass on a compliment about a young man behind the deli country. I was having a crap day, felt like someone had run over my pet and then backed up over me sort of day. Arrived at the deli pointed and sort of mumbled out what I needed and got smacked by such positivity, a massive smile, a quick joke about something silly, he bounced while he did his work, and generally made me feel so much better it was hard to be morose in the presence of such positivity.

Budgie comments on Nov 12, 2020:
Taking just one of your points in what way are we superior to animals? We spend most of our lives, learning or working to achieve tiny bits of plastic that we then value over our family and friends, we kill each other over stupid opinions and false ideologies, we destroy the environment and expect nothing to change. Dolphins swim eat mate have babies get attacked, play enjoy themselves and manage to negotiate an ocean without a compass or GPS, homing pigeon and many other migratory animals are able to traverse the globe without getting lost, some human can barely make it to the shops and back. Humans are destructive, greedy, hate, murder etc all with a brain that can reason and knows that what they are doing is repugnant to a large group of society. Animals might hunt each other but they don't pretend to be morally upright while doing it, only a few species (those closest to humans) kill each other for little or no reason (many do it for food) Most animals have much better vision, agility, motor function, hearing, flight, group co-ordination, family structure (harsh and hard as it may be) and are in tune with the environment. If you are here just to stir up trouble I think you are going to be sadly disappointed. Many years ago I remember reading something that went roughly like this. Humans looked at their world and saw that it fitted them well, when they walked to a spot there was water and food and as they moved around there was more water and food. The wondered how the world came to be just right for them. (we are an arrogant and conceited bunch) They decided that someone must have made the world for them, then in their arrogance they gave the figure a shape, their shape and the worshiped it in the hopes that better fortune might come their way, thus began the age of gods.

It is tough to break away from indoctrination. You are not wrong to feel that way it was drummed into you as a young child you were brainwashed and programmed. The fact that you are working on it shows that you are trying to break that conditioning. Sit with your daughter and explain your difficulties and why (she would have been exposed to the same conditioning if you only discovered yourself 4 years ago) because there may be times when your reactions might seem distant etc and if she understands what you are dealing with then she will hopefully be able to understand when you need some space to deal with your feelings so that you can respond in the manner you want to.

Feel like I need this tonight could do with some alcohol.
many of you have successfully tracked down old classmates etc. by searching the Internet?
Budgie comments on Nov 5, 2020:
I have contacted a few and some we have reformed our friendships. Some we have not, a few have died often quite young, it is part of life, I have some friends I have been in constant contact with, despite living at either ends of our country, for the past 30 odd years. I helped my brother track down a mate of his from High School with a name search and then sending out an e-mail to all of the people with that name. He was surprised with the one that returned saying it was him. Not the one he thought it was going to be. He now lives in another continent and is a very successful businessman, a long cry from the surfer who would rather surf than go to school and dropped out to do an apprenticeship as he could not stand school any longer.
I have an interesting thought concerning morality and I would like to see what other people's ...
Budgie comments on Nov 5, 2020:
All animals that live in packs or groups have rules of behaviour. Chimps that have spent lives in captivity can never be released into a truly wild situation as they would be killed for failing to follow the rules, if not killed then driven off which amounts to the same thing. Rescuers make groups of Chimps that can be released together so that they all follow the same set of rules of behaviour. Morality is fluid, what is considered normal acceptable behaviour in one century is not in another, what is considered lewd or outside of moral behaviour in one decade is not in a future decade. Only a century or two ago the House of Lords in England debated the age of consent it was 12/13 (the document used both) and raising it to 16 this was in 1861. Girls as young at 12/13 were prostitutes. Now any person having sex with a child is a criminal. In Victorian England the manner of dress and behaviour of women was highly controlled, if they saw what was going on today heads would collectively explode. Previously homosexuality was a criminal offense, then a mental health issue, and now is (by some) seen as just a part of the wide variety of humans that exist. Some cultures were there long before white cultures worked out this idea. I believe Ancient Greek and Roman cultures viewed it quite differently to how their countries rule it now. Unfortunately many countries allow the cults to define morality and therefore laws to maintain it are influenced by a text written by a bunch of men many centuries ago and thus follow a morality that reflects the views of the men of that time. Some of the more recent cults while they might use a more recent morality were again written by men of the time and their views of morality. Thus no cult text should be used to define morality. I got interesting in Wicca at one point simply because of the reed, "An it harm none do what you will" Basically if what you are doing is not going to harm someone else then it is your choice. From the xtian's cult we have "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" Someone below posted a poem that is also really good.
Modern meetings.

I had a zoom meeting today and it was exactly like that along with the person saying. "I can't see me can anyone hear me?" " I have disappeared." Then the tweenager (okay she was at least 20 but she looked sooooo young) starts trying to tell her what to do to fix her screen (all over zoom)

The first movie I saw him in. I might just watch it again to relive ... I am not sure what I was young when I saw it and might see something different as I think differently now. Zardoz
For U.S. residents: can you own a kangaroo?
Budgie comments on Nov 5, 2020:
Please don't keep kangaroos as pets. They spook easily, males can get aggressive and they are a herd animal without the mob they stress. That said would be interesting to overlay a map of republican states and see how it matches up. I mean what with the right to arm bears and all. (Robin Williams quote)
I still love puns ....[agnostic]

Lucky cows wonder how they felt afterwards. Did it give them the munchies? Here in Oz there is an old saying Stone the Crows maybe it was a typo and should have been stone the cows.
We each need to know our place in the hierarchy ...[agnostic]

Not just wasps I have seen grown men run from itty bitty spiders, I give bull-ants a wide berth and due respect, some of our smallest creatures have us in a right royal dither. For those not in Oz here is a website and a pic of a bull and taking down a wasp. https://australian.museum/learn/animals/insects/bull-ants/

Budgie comments on Nov 3, 2020:
Hard to tell what is satire and what is real these days, because of the website it comes from it could be satire but all too likely to actually have happened and that the half thought out defense they actually believe might work. Poor alligator to have been threatened so.
Congratulatio....wow look at the time, I better get home.
