Carin replies on Jan 17, 2019:
I don't think you can even compare the flat earthers to any of those others. They have no basis at all for their beliefs, while certain GMOs have been shown to harm bees & there is no argument that producing a single GMO animal requires the suffering & deaths of many, many other animals. & while you won't find a single scientist to back up any flat earth claims, there are some siding with the other causes, at least in certain instances. They may be in the minority, but they do exist. I've actually met a few anti-vaccine MDs but I don't think anyone has ever met a flat earther geologist, geographer or astronomer.

I guess. I don't really know about these particular reasons. Also, whether it's 1985 or 2019, the reasons should be the same, no? Certainly it's nicer to be in a relationship, but only if it's a good one. If not, than a good relationship with oneself will have to do.

Oh no! I only had PMS once but wow, it was a really bad one so I sympathize with you. I hadn't had my period in about 5 years due to my first pregnancy & breastfeeding, & then all of a sudden I wanted to start killing people. Like seriously, someone would annoy me & I'd think, they need to DIE. NOW. An image of running them over with my car or something like that would flash through my mind for a fraction of a second. Yikes!! This went on for a couple days & I was wondering what the heck was suddenly wrong with me & then~voila~I had my period & I was back to normal. Thankfully it never happened again--I guess it was just a bunch of pent up period hormones. It made me think of that lady in England a long time ago now, who used PMS a defense in her murder trial. I think she might have even been successful, not sure.

I should say, though, that I don't think those men loved me-they were lying. I suppose if we were talking about true love, if it even exists, that neither partner would be weakened. In the real world though, men almost always have more physical, social & economic power.

Carin replies on Jan 14, 2019:
You expressed that so well! I think you can look at a scene or an object & see it in a different way if you have an artistic mind. Some people notice & appreciate color, or balance, or symbolism in everyday life. They put thought into how they arrange their environment. Some people express themselves in ways that may not fall within the usual accepted realm of art, but they are making those connections.

I don't see hunting for meat as a worse way to feed yourself than buying a steak or chicken at the store. At least wild animals get to have a normal life & are spared the trauma of being transported to slaughter.

As Untamedshew said, a little difference is fine, but when the ideals are polar opposites, I don't think it would work out. Whether we like talking about politics or not (I certainly don't), your underlying political ideal reflects at least some part of your personality.
Carin replies on Jan 9, 2019:
I must agree that politics can't really be completely separated from personality & therefor values--but it takes a while to really understand why a person feels the way they do about certain political issues. It could be fear, some kind of personal experience trauma, or, sadly, it could just be because they have values that I think are morally questionable.

I met a wonderful man that is not in the right place for a long term relationship. I'm hoping that changes, but I can't force it. We are still talking. I've also met another wonderful man that just lives way too damn far away. Believe me if he lived closer, we would have a great time. He is a ...

@Savage I moved 3,000 miles to be with my guy. I had to move anyway, but a couple hundred would have been sufficient. I drove here in 4 days & have not regretted a thing.

I kind of know how you feel. It bothers me when people have lost some basic grammar knowledge (like the difference between less and fewer) but, as you said, don't let it detract from a discussion (it still rankles me, though).

I prefer to speak directly. There's no ambiguity as to what l really mean.
Carin replies on Jan 5, 2019:
Consideration of other people is more important than that. You can usually be honest & kind at the same time, & if you are the person is more likely to accept your ideas & also stay friends with you.

Dragonfly_1965 comments on Jan 4, 2019:
Is the fact that you're a non believer the main cause for the divorce? My husband is a christian.

@Cast1es, @CourreurDeBois Thanks for some helpful ideas. Our area doesn't have parks or I would be doing a lot of that already.

John_Tyrrell comments on Jan 3, 2019:
"While robot-assisted surgery has allowed surgeons to perform operations remotely with minimal invasiveness, a 2016 US study found that it was linked to the deaths of 144 people between 2008 and 2013. " ...
Carin replies on Jan 3, 2019:
The Guardian article was pretty superficial so I looked the study they cited. While I admittedly just gave it a quick reading, I could not find anywhere in it a comparison of death & injury rates for robotic vs. human performed surgeries sorted by specific procedures. & to me, that is really the question--which is safer? Many people die due to mistakes made by surgeons--more than we know as they cover up some of them.

JimG comments on Jan 3, 2019:

Better the devil you know.... In going to a popular vote, you only exchange one set of problems with the current system for another set of problems with a new system. Not worth the hassle...
Carin replies on Dec 31, 2018:
@TheMiddleWay Well, democracy is a majority rule thing & I have plenty of "minority" beliefs. I still think Democracy is the best form of government.
