I hike, bike and flat water kayak, but I'm also capable of lifting a book. I enjoy lifting weights and working out. I'm a reasonably fit, mostly reformed wild child who still has moments of mischief. I don't have a formal religion ... I ask too many questions. I am interested in the paranormal. Oh yeah, I have a job, car, home, and full set of teeth.

If we are compatible and have common interests who knows where the path will lead ... possibly to some secluded spot ... so we can chase fireflies.

Why dosn't the USA Split
CS60 comments on Nov 27, 2017:
Somewhere along the line we became like the Hotel California - you can check in, but never leave. Frankly, if the blue states split, I'm going with them. That should be much easier than trying to go to Canada.
As an atheist, I think Homosexuality should not come into mainstream. What's your take ?
CS60 comments on Nov 21, 2017:
What is right for you may or may not be right for others. You don’t get to judge what is right or wrong for them, only for yourself. It is the same deal with religion, what is right for you may or may not be right for others.
volunteering
CS60 comments on Nov 17, 2017:
I've volunteered at Habitat, food drives, hiking trail maintenance, adopt-a-highway, and tree planting. I can't volunteer on a consistent basis, so it is hit or miss. But I enjoy it and it is a good way to meet like minded people.
Creationists believe every single word of Genesis. But I personally don't believe Phil Collins is ...
CS60 comments on Nov 17, 2017:
Ha Ha! They certainly were around for awhile, 3 decades at least.
How should pedophiles be dealt with?
CS60 comments on Nov 17, 2017:
Pedophiles need to be punished and repeat offenders permanently taken out of society. I'm not sure of the best way to accomplish that, farm camps in the middle of nowhere? In most instances, including this one, I'm against the death penalty. Our court system is a mess with innocent people locked up for years and some executed. I also don't think castration works. If they are hell-bent on sex with children, they will simply find another way.
Anyone here owns an EV or a tiny house?
CS60 comments on Nov 17, 2017:
What's an EV?
Time to have churches pay tax. They want to play politics. Time to pay for playing!
CS60 comments on Nov 17, 2017:
Absolutely! They want to preacher from the pulpit, make them pay taxes. Make them pay taxes anyway.
Are you Pro-Choice? are your beliefs (or lack of) a determining factor?
CS60 comments on Nov 16, 2017:
Pro-Choice; her body her choice. And most of the "pro-lifers" aren't really pro-life they are pro-birth. They don't want feed, cloth, house, educate, or pay medical for babies and kids. That is not pro-life, just pro-birth.
The Clitoris is the Devil's Doorbell
CS60 comments on Nov 16, 2017:
Hmmm, it brings to mind the song "Ring my bell" by Anita Ward
I am a gun owner who is licensed and trained. I enjoy shooting a great deal. I do not support the ...
CS60 comments on Nov 15, 2017:
It would help if reasonable gun owners got together and requested a ban on certain gun types or bump stocks. Most of us that want limits, really don’t want to take away all guns.
Exercise anyone?
CS60 comments on Nov 12, 2017:
I like to walk or hike and lift weights. Being in nature is soothing.
The struggle to find a partner...
CS60 comments on Nov 11, 2017:
I mostly use online dating and volunteering. I’m not into bars or clubbing. At some point, if it isn’t obvious I’ll ask about politics. I don’t care about someone else’s religious beliefs, just as long as they don’t force it down my throat.
Should the U.S. Army allow Turbans, Hijabs, Beards, and Dreadlocks?
CS60 comments on Nov 11, 2017:
I don’t think this is a good idea. My chief concern is safety. I don’t know if the gas mask are different than what we had 35 years ago. I’m assuming some changes, but you needed a tight seal against your face. Beards and long hair prevent that. Turbans and hijabs could be removed, but I worry about them getting caught in equipment.
This really did happen. I called my cable provider for tech support and somehow I ended up being ...
CS60 comments on Nov 11, 2017:
I think you did a good job with her. I probably would have gone off on her. Something to the effect of “your religious path is yours and my path is mine, what is right for you is not right for me, and you don’t get to shove your views down my throat.”
Social Stigma Around One Night Stands
CS60 comments on Nov 8, 2017:
Historically the social stigma is usually placed on the woman. If they are two consenting adults, then only whose business it is the two involved and potentially their partners. I don’t think I’d be interested in a one night stand. I’m involved in friends with benefits; it’s working for us. Neither one of us has a problem with it and we practice safe sex.
Out "thought and prayers" go out to the all the republicans who lost their seats in the election on ...
CS60 comments on Nov 8, 2017:
It was a good night. We need to stay engaged and not get complacent or arrested and to arrogant.
We are in trouble, hopefully we can survive Betsy Devos trying to force Bible study into the ...
CS60 comments on Nov 5, 2017:
This ought to be interesting. I can hear people screaming separation of church and state. I can see non-Christian religions suing. I can see individuals suing. And I heard a rumor that she is going to resign. Let’s hope the rumor is correct.
General Profanity for Non-Believers
CS60 comments on Nov 5, 2017:
I don’t feel odd about it at all. Sometime I think it’s funny.
God must be on holiday . . . [abc.net.au]
CS60 comments on Nov 5, 2017:
I’m sending my thoughts and prayers. My thoughts are that our elected representatives need to grow a set and enact fair gun control legislation and strengthen mental health. My prayers are we vote out the current elected representatives.
JUST IN: 'POLITICO' Announces Weekend Betsy DeVos Resignation/Firing Rumor
CS60 comments on Nov 4, 2017:
I hope this is true. She had no business accepting the position in the first place. I think it is another instance of Agent Orange sowing chaos and destruction.
FFRF Bible Quiz -- How Much Do You Know About the Bible?
CS60 comments on Nov 4, 2017:
LOL 14: I got my knowledge in Sunday school. Not even. I never went to Sunday school. I was basically raised without religion, so I know almost nothing about the bible and I plan to keep it that way. The few times I've tried to read it, it was nothing more than a bunch of disjointed, made up stories, written 3 or 4 centuries after it happened.
What do you find sexy?
CS60 comments on Nov 4, 2017:
Intelligence is incredibly attractive. A similar sense of humor is a deal maker. And i'm a sucker for a great smile.
What are you most looking for in a relationship? Just your 1 Thing
CS60 comments on Nov 4, 2017:
I'm attracted to intelligence and humor, so they are necessary. But I think the most important quality is the trust that stems from honesty.
Should a candidate's ability to keep his/her religious beliefs to him/herself be a litmus test for ...
CS60 comments on Nov 4, 2017:
They shouldn't be automatically removed, but there MUST be separation of church and state. If they believe in god that is their business and so long as they don't cram any religion down my throat, I'm open to them as a candidate. I also think there should be some type of competency test - constitution, finance, history.
If you research you will find out that cannons/bible was written 311 A.D. I find that religions ...
CS60 comments on Nov 4, 2017:
Religion is about controlling the masses and treat hem like mushrooms - keep them in the dark and feed them crap.
What do you like to do to relieve stress?
CS60 comments on Nov 3, 2017:
Walk, weigh lift, read, look for Bizzaro comics on FB, listen to "ohm". I don't know why, "ohm' is a very soothing sound to me.
Iceland Mandates Mental Health Warnings On All Bibles
CS60 comments on Nov 3, 2017:
I'm liking Iceland more and more.
How many have been defriended on Facebook over your atheist memes and opinions?
CS60 comments on Oct 29, 2017:
I don’t think any. Most of my friends on FB are real life friends or real life friends of theirs that I haven’t actually met. That has resulted in a very liberal group, for the most part. I can’t say anything goes, but it can be amusing.

If corporations are people, how has big pharma NOT been charged with genocide/mass negligent ...
CS60 comments on Oct 28, 2017:
Part of the problem is Citizens United where the Supreme Court allowed unlimited donations to political campaigns. Now the corporations openly buy the politicians.

Any universalist/unitarian experience?
CS60 comments on Oct 28, 2017:
Each UU church is a little different. I’ve found them to be open and accepting. Many members do Not adhere to one specific religion, but follow a couple. Change many to almost all. Generally they seem to ask questions and Not follow directions, unless it involves coffee or beer. The Harrisburg UU has rules against proselytizing of any flavor of religion and I suspect most UU churches have that rule.
Beyond MeToo and IBelieveYou -- What will it take to end rape culture?
CS60 comments on Oct 26, 2017:
Stop victim blaming and call out those who do. The sooner we all learn to call out the rapists and abusers the better. It won’t stop until they feel uncomfortable and know there will be repercussions for their behavior.
Engage or Ignore Trump Supporters?
CS60 comments on Oct 26, 2017:
I don’t tend to engage very often and when I do I ask questions. And follow-up with “So what makes you think that? Have you researched that anywhere else?” I think it is slowly getting through to the intelligent, but conned people that voted for trump, that he is a disaster. His poll numbers continue to decline.

CS60 comments on Oct 26, 2017:
One organization is Americans United for Separation of church and State. The ACLU may have some cases too. I never thought I’d like that organization, but times are a changing.
What do you think of religious charities?
CS60 comments on Oct 25, 2017:
I don’t know if they are good or bad, but I don’t trust them. There is a good possibility that they are spreading religious right hate. I don’t donate to or volunteer at them. Too many other good non-religious places to do that.
Why are religious people on this site? What is their intention?
CS60 comments on Oct 21, 2017:
They know we have cookies! Some maybe questioning, some maybe looking to convert us to their religion. My concern is they will troll people. If they are asking questions and respectful- trying to learn, no problem.
How would you feel if you found out that the person you have feeling for was transgender?
CS60 comments on Oct 21, 2017:
I’m a straight transman and it wouldn’t matter. Pre, non, and post op doesn’t matter either. Some trans people only want to be with cis people. I’ve dated a pre-op transwoman and it took me a bit to get comfortable, but there was enough attraction. I’ve learned that I fall in love with what is between someone’s ears not what it is between their legs.
Do you like to cook?
CS60 comments on Oct 20, 2017:
I love to eat, so I learned to cook. I usually stick to easy things, few ingredients and few steps. I tend to modify recipes. I’ve learned that the crock pot is my friend. Come home from work and supper is done, with left overs!
Do you believe in ghosts or similar paranormal entities?
CS60 comments on Oct 20, 2017:
I allow that ghosts could exist, but that we don’t have the ability to prove or disprove at this time. The ghost hunter Type TV shows are fake, but I always wonder about the technology - is it real or fake.

CS60 comments on Oct 20, 2017:
Interesting concept. I can see pros and cons. The biggest issue I see is committees frequently don’t accomplish much.
What, in your opinion, are some characteristics of a mature person?
CS60 comments on Oct 16, 2017:
Being able to admit when you are wrong. Taking responsibility for your actions. Doing what you say you’re going to do. Is capable of taking care of themself, cooking, paying bills. They are afraid to laugh at themselves. They don’t belittle others. Immature would be: needy,blaming others, lying, drama queen or king.
Would you want a Christian God to be real?
CS60 comments on Oct 15, 2017:
No l don’t want the Christian god to be real. The Bible writers made him out to be a mean bully. No thanks. Jesus on the other hand might be cool to hang with, but again I don’t trust what’s in the Bible..

Chiropractors.. are they witch doctors do they do some good?
CS60 comments on Oct 15, 2017:
I have had both good and bad experiences. The most recent experience was bad. He was not helping me, but sucking up the money. The same guy a few years ago great. Adjusted my back a few times and it was great. It seems like in the intervening years he became a money grabber.

Is it better to be a vegetarian or a meat eater ?
CS60 comments on Oct 14, 2017:
I love a good steak and sometimes I crave red meat. Maybe for the B vitamins. I try to limit red meat to no more than twice a week.
Do you support Trump?
CS60 comments on Oct 13, 2017:
He lies (alternative facts) about 70% of the time. He doesn't understand nor respect the Constitution - per his comments on the free press and protesting. He is also clearly racist - per his comments on Puerto Rico and Charlottesville. So far he has done nothing good for the country. His actions have proven him to be a bigot, racist, homophobe and xenophobe. I do not respect anyone like that.
Do you think a religious person is more or less inclined to be racist/sexist/all around bigoted?
CS60 comments on Oct 13, 2017:
Many christians hide their hate, racism, and bigotry behind the bible and religion. They twist passages around to support their hateful view. I don't know that religion has made them racist or homophobic, but they use it as an excuse to behave that way.
Are you in favor of capital punishment?
CS60 comments on Oct 13, 2017:
I generally view capital punishment as state sponsored murder. However, in certain instances, such as, repeat offenders of serious crimes and Extensive evidence then maybe. Too many innocent people have been jailed for years or decades. If some one is to be executed there must absolute proof of guilt.
I just recently gave up on on-line dating. Now I have stumbled upon this site via Facebook. Of ...
CS60 comments on Oct 12, 2017:
I haven’t totally given up on online dating, but it certainly very frustrating. I like generally intelligent discussion here and if more comes from it great.
How did you arrive at your views on sex? How did you determine what is right, acceptable and not ...
CS60 comments on Oct 11, 2017:
I think this is the pagan in me - if it feels good do it. Consenting adults only! As long as no one is being lied to or cheated on and safe sex practiced. I suspect many religions try to make sex bad or perverted unless it is for procreation.
Do you judge any religions or beliefs below others? Or are they all the same to you
CS60 comments on Oct 11, 2017:
The judgement I make, is whether something I s right or wrong for me. I don’t tend to do well with organized religion - I ask too many questions. Or point out inconsistencies. I don’t know anyone is better or worse. It seems like when you get to the core of many, they’re similar.
Are atheist as racist as religious people?
CS60 comments on Oct 9, 2017:
I don't doubt that some racist Atheists, but at least they are not hiding behind the bible. I think the non-believers (Atheists, Agonistics, Humanists, ,,,,) would be less inclined to be racist or prejudiced. In the US we are a marginalized group and, as such, would have experienced prejudice and would be more cognizant of prejudice and bias.
Have you boycotted certain businesses based on your (non) religious principles?
CS60 comments on Oct 9, 2017:
I generally do not go to Chick-Fil-A, Walmart, Hobby Lobby, or Cracker Barrel. I also no longer shop at LL Bean's or drink Yuengling beer. If they are going to be stupid enough to promote the fact that they believe in discrimination, they don't need my money.
What do you say after someone sneezes?
CS60 comments on Oct 9, 2017:

Flat Earth. Has anyone simmered on this ?
CS60 comments on Oct 8, 2017:
If the earth was flat, the cats would have knocked everything off to see what happens. American is getting dumber and dumber. Some of that I blame on the religious zealots and their elected officals
Do you believe in reincarnation?
CS60 comments on Oct 8, 2017:
Yes, and I've had this belief before I ever heard of Buddhism or Hinduism. I'm not sure how or why I came to this conclusion.
Are we alone in the universe?
CS60 comments on Oct 8, 2017:
There could be other intelligent species out there, but they haven't made contact or did and ran away in horror.
What's your thoughts on prostitution?
CS60 comments on Oct 8, 2017:
If prostitution is illegal, why is it that the women are mainly the ones arrested? Why are the johns not routinely arrested. Also, there is a lot of sex-trafficking going on, which means one of the parties is being forced to have sex. I think decriminalized prostitution will make that situation worse.
What do you want to happen to your body when you die?
CS60 comments on Oct 8, 2017:
I'd like to be cremated, then have my ashes mixed with a tree seed and buried. I haven't decided on the tree, yet. Maybe a maple, black locust, or chestnut.
If you had a whole week free, no responsibilities, and whatever resources you needed, what would you...
CS60 comments on Oct 8, 2017:
Possibly take a train ride to visit the national parks out west. Maybe a cruise on the Columbia River. You said unlimited recourses, so design furniture and have a cabinet maker execute them. Volunteer to build homes or work in a disaster area. Hmmm, is there any way we can stretch this to a month??
What is your favorite out-of-doors activity?
CS60 comments on Oct 8, 2017:
I like hiking the most, but I also really enjoy biking on rail-trails. I've flat water kayaked and its is great to see animals on the lakeside. Being outside and listening to the sounds helps me get connected or re-connected with nature.
Any booklovers on this group? What authors/genres/topics do you like reading?
CS60 comments on Oct 7, 2017:
Generally I read non-fiction - biographies, autobiographies, true crime. On occasion I'll read a mystery. John Jakes and Stephen King are fiction writers that I'll read.
What are your biggest turnoffs from potential mates?
CS60 comments on Oct 7, 2017:
1. Smoker, that is a deal breaker. 2. Our senses of humor don't match. 3. Lack of intelligence 4. Lack of compassion, empathy, or kindness
Would you date someone you met online?
CS60 comments on Oct 7, 2017:
I have in the past and would again. A quick coffee or ice cream date to see if there's any in person chemistry.
Does anyone practice meditation?
CS60 comments on Oct 7, 2017:
Sometimes, but I'm not consistent about it. I find it very soothing to listen to and try to focus on ohm.
