At last, I have varnished my first oil painting! Oil on canvas, 2015
Carin comments on Oct 19, 2018:
Oh wow!! I love it!
Do men have a duty to provide?
Carin comments on Oct 19, 2018:
Only while the kids are small & the mom is breastfeeding them. I think for most families though, men have higher incomes & often decent childcare costs as much, or almost as much, as the mom can earn anyway.
Do you believe that a cure for cancer exists, but it's not available to the public because medical ...
Carin comments on Oct 19, 2018:
Cancer will probably need about as many cures as there are types of cancers. It's pretty unlikely that there will ever be a single cure that kills all of them.
Do you collect anything?
Carin comments on Oct 19, 2018:
I collect glass paperweights--I got my first one about 50 years ago. No idea how many I have. Some are simple & inexpensive & a few are signed art pieces. They are in all different styles too.
Do you find it as amazing and sad as I do that our society in general values entertainers (actors & ...
Carin comments on Oct 19, 2018:
And the people who do the most amazing thing of all, make new little humans & raise them into functioning humans, seem to merit no pay & very little appreciation or admiration. .
Do only humans have a soul? What is a soul? Would you ever trade yours for anything?
Carin comments on Oct 19, 2018:
Great questions, but I can't answer any of them. I seem to be stuck mainly on the second one, & the one you didn't ask--Do souls exist? Looking forward to hearing others' comments
Do you believe that racism and hatred is taught in childhood? Or are some just born with it? Or ...
Carin comments on Oct 19, 2018:
You know what's weird? Chickens will gang up on a chicken that looks different from them. Weird but true. Sometimes they will kill it. I hope there is not something like that in us humans. It's so hard to know, isn't it, when kids are getting subtle (or not so subtle) racist messages from books, videos etc. from the very beginning? I started counting the numbers of female & non-white characters in my kids' books & videos when they were toddlers & even in the ones that seemed to have made a effort to be inclusive, the numbers did not reflect the true demographics here in the US. Mostly white & male. & sadly, in the past few years we are really seeing parents openly teaching their kids very racist & hateful ideas & behaviors.
Up again with my girl. I think we need a a stronger cough medicine. And I am wide awake.
Carin comments on Oct 19, 2018:
Yes, PLEASE go to ER or immediate care!
Do you read your horoscope? Do you do it for fun or do you take it seriously?
Carin comments on Oct 19, 2018:
Very rarely. Like a couple times a year.

Carin comments on Oct 19, 2018:
I don't believe either statement has any basis in truth or reality & they make things more difficult for no reason anyway. The stuff that makes me interesting to me is pretty boring or weird to most other people... I have way too many hobbies & interests for the time & energy I have available. Chickens, goats, sewing, plants, reading, picking up colorful rocks--are you bored yet?

I didn't care for the first one enough to watch the next two, & apparently failed completely to derive any deep insights from it so I'm unable to vote.

Neither.

What manner of evil is this?

I’ve tried internet dating on and off for 7 years with limited success. I have found people to be ...
Carin comments on Oct 18, 2018:
Not really--I've had really good luck here & it's the only one I've tried. One thing though, the guys were not people who I'd look at their profiles & think I had much in common with them. But after talking for a few days I was surprised how many values & interests we shared. They also happened to be a lot younger than I am, so maybe you could consider people outside you own age range? I sure understand about the materialism. Wonder if you can include (or exclude?) something in your profile to weed those people out & send them looking elsewhere before bothering you? I even consider being overly concerned with how someone looks a form or materialism & it's one of the reasons I don't have a photo in my profile. I'd rather they contact me because they're interested in something they read on my profile, or think we might be compatible emotionally. If they ask to see a picture I'm happy to share one or two. I hope you meet someone nice here! Good luck!
If the “ Christians “ would add nine months to their birthday ?
Carin comments on Oct 18, 2018:
You're right, they should if they believe that they were "babies" from the moment of conception. Of course most of them don't really believe that though--it's all about controlling women & their bodies & punishing them from being sexual. Seems like the totally lose interest in the welfare of those "babies" the second they're born.
This is just the sort of woman I would like to meet
Carin comments on Oct 18, 2018:
Sounds like a good person through & through. I hope you find her.
Truth, if ever there was truth.
Carin comments on Oct 18, 2018:
I just love it when guys post stuff like this! Thank you!
Happy Thanksgiving...
Carin comments on Oct 18, 2018:
I stuff a pumpkin for Thanksgiving, put the lid back on, wrap the stem in foil & bake it. It turns kind of bronze & makes a lovely focal point on the table, surrounded by traditional foods like mashed potatoes & gravy, cranberry sauce & pies. Way easier than a turkey & guilt free.
Sarah Sanders: Most kids taken from their families 'actually self-separated'
Carin comments on Oct 18, 2018:
Can't she be both at the same time? She is for sure evil but may be delusional since she assumes that people believe her nonsense.
Can I talk about my feelings for a bit?
Carin comments on Oct 18, 2018:
When you say you feel like you are breaking up with God, it sounds like you may still believe in him...are you leaving your church because of the problems you mentioned with other people there, the cat-and-mouse feelings & being afraid of going to hell for thinking independently? Or do you think god is not real, or probably not real? Just wondering because of the way you worded it--maybe you would feel better switching to a more modern, open church or even the Unitarians? They don't care if you are atheist or a believer. My sister goes there & finds them very accepting. They also take turns with other churches in staffing a homeless shelter, & they run a preschool I believe.
We are everything we are, without god. We are everything we can be, everything we want to be. I ...
Carin comments on Oct 18, 2018:
Sounds like a good rule of thumb. It's just another way of telling people they shouldn't think for themselves.

Carin comments on Oct 18, 2018:
Our family moved to Colorado from Michigan when I was in first grade. My mom was from Holland & neither of us knew what poison oak looked like. The teacher told everyone to bring in colorful fall leaves for a class project, & anyone out west knows poison oak has very beautiful fall colors... My mom got a call from the school & we had a substitute for 2 weeks--turned out my teacher had VERY severe reactions to poison oak.
Do atheists observe Halloween?
Carin comments on Oct 18, 2018:
I do! I'm only 5'1" so I can even get away with trick or treating. All these holidays, including Xmas & Easter, have roots in 2 or more belief systems but I don't pay any attention. It's all about the chocolate. Decorating & making costumes for the kids is fun too. Last year one was a microwave oven & won the costume contest at school.
Have you ever gone out with a true believer , you hit it off. Then out of nowhere they call you the ...
Carin comments on Oct 18, 2018:
That sounds hurtful & creepy. Wishing you better luck in the future. On second thought, I'd probably laugh if someone called me the devil--what was your reaction?

Do You Believe The Apollo 11 Moon Landing Actually Happened?
Carin comments on Oct 17, 2018:
Of course! How could they get every country that had a space program to go along with faking it? The USSR was our sworn enemy back then. & after all this time, at least one of the thousands of people involved would have let something slip.

Never Judge People By Their Past? What Do You Think About This Statement? Can People Really Change?
Carin comments on Oct 16, 2018:
They may, but you still deserve to evaluate for yourself if you want to risk your heart & future on the hope that although they were once bad, they are now truly good & not faking on some level. If something about a potential friend or partner's past doesn't sit right with me I'll ask questions till I'm satisfied, or convinced by their evasiveness or attitude that I don't want to be involved with them. We have the right to protect ourselves. If they resent being asked about their past mistakes, they haven't truly dealt with them & accepted responsibility for their part in things.
I'm comfortable, does anyone else? ?
Carin comments on Oct 16, 2018:
I can be that way too.

Carin comments on Oct 16, 2018:
I would love to read how other people manage to divorce cheating spouses--I'm finding it quite daunting & have finally decided to just leave & go on from there. What the heck is the point of mandatory waiting periods for divorces? They're hoping we'll kiss & make up, or just give up?

Congratulations!! So exciting! Babies are just the best thing ever!!! I'm a certified La Leche League leader with 13 years of nursing under my belt (or bra?) so please feel free to message me if you have concerns about nursing. It's good to learn about breastfeeding ahead of time because it doesn't always come naturally & if you do run into troubles you might be too tired or overwhelmed to find help. Have a wonderful pregnancy & birth. It's the most special part of being a woman. You can make another human being!! It's a superpower for sure.
