What would you do if somebody opened an Agnostic church by your home?
DangerDave comments on Dec 15, 2017:
There are already several I'm just beginning to check out online. I just applied for ordination to The Church of the Apathetic Agnostic. I'd go, hoping to meet other like thinking people but more so new friends with similar interests. I really have no idea what goes on in them but I'm sure any "sermons" are about realistic, self affirming topics. That's about all the "ritual" I'd be interested in. The First Church of Atheism seems the biggest of several atheist churches as well.
What would be good ideas for someone wanting to write an "atheistic" song?
DangerDave comments on Dec 15, 2017:
I want to use the concept done by Crashtest Dummies - mmmm mmmm mmmm and Cage the Elephant - No Rest for the Wicked. Both have two verses of people in desperate situations but none so much as the religious people of the final verse. Of course some parody is always fun. John R Butler - God Will F*ck You Up is an all time favorite. I prefer the straightforward approach though. Rush - Freewill is a good example.
Guilty pleasures?
DangerDave comments on Dec 14, 2017:
Right now its smoking. I really feel guilty about that. As for the rest, I know I have a few...thousand pleasures a few...thousand religions would have me feel guilty and burn in fiery pits for. Oh well. OK, so maybe SIMS 3. But that's it!
An investor gives you "seed money" to start a business. What kind of business would you start?
DangerDave comments on Dec 14, 2017:
I'd LOVE to go back to my last start up. My first place was great. A cottage style on a rolling hill with some interesting very old stone walls here and there. The first one created a natural stage. The basement was the perfect goth and horror setting. We'd decorate all that and shoot my act leads and other models. Those went straight to various sponsored websites. I at the time had a gaming site that eventually added hundreds of games (many I hosted and created), a site for the artists and models, and a costume DIY site, One other was attached to the gaming community but was a virtual emporium of religious and arcane knowledge. Of course, just the linked site made that possible. The money started pouring in from the model pages and the sites I was doing soon for models worldwide. This time around I would focus more on the performing arts. In becoming a slave to the computer and ever more frantic shoot schedules, I rarely picked up an instrument. And I'd do a lot less cocaine. Like none. http://www.sacred-texts.com/index.htm
Would you move into a clothing optional community?
DangerDave comments on Dec 13, 2017:
I've stayed in a few, visited and performed in several throughout Florida. Actual seven veils dances were crowd favorites though most of the time we were performing nude or near. These shows were after hours and in "adults only" areas. The next day, you'd see families strolling along just as naturally as those in suburban areas would...clothed! At least A preference, now that you mention it!
Do you feel detached from your own culture?
DangerDave comments on Dec 13, 2017:
No and yes. In our current social state so many are downtrodden...or doing the "trodding"! Its sad to have seen us come to this after we were so happy, confident and accepting of each other decades ago. As for my ancient Cherokee and Celtic cultures, I've studied and feel a real connection to them. As a musician I studied the ancient bardic (musical) arts and use them considerably in my own music. Both, as most primitive tribal cultures, could be absolutely brutal but both had great times of peace when our artists and craftsmen created works of wonder. Anyway be yourself, even if you don't fit in with the locals.
Are You Agnostic About Invisible Frogs on Venus?
DangerDave comments on Dec 13, 2017:
I propose this: you thought of frogs on Venus. You made me consider the idea: the various hardships terrestrial frogs would face in that hostile environment, the froggy technology that'd have to rival our own to create Jimney Cricket spacesuits and the extraordinary amphibian aptitude they'd need to infuse them with invisibility. I'd more likely think they would be ethereal projections of our thoughts or they exist somewhere in another dimension which may or may not have been created by us; collectively, singularly or with an infinite number of other possibilities. I do know several variations exist in my mind now so, in that respect alone, somewhere in my memory for as long as I exist there will be these creatures. In this way no, I am no longer "agnostic" about invisible frogs on Venus.
Can Someone Explain the Economics of Socialism To Me?
DangerDave comments on Dec 12, 2017:
The first section of the link is a good crash course. You can find tons of more detailed resources online. Socialism has worked in several historical cultures as has democracy. A serious problem for both are tyrants and oligarchs. Up until the 80s we appeared to be moving toward a social democracy. Public services were cheap and abundant, infrastructure was maintained, we had solid secular education and the masses (of Americans, anyway) were happy. I'd say the same for most of our European Socialist counterparts and even many in Communist countries though they didn't enjoy the freedoms and opportunities we had. But the WORLD economy was working so well then! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socialism
If you could bring a fictional character to life, who would it be and why?
DangerDave comments on Dec 12, 2017:
Here she is, of course as the lead character of my act! BUT, of course, she'd BE "Shae KindleWood", the character she created who moved from the "medieval maiden" (pictured) to, made immortal by being bitten by a vampire, she had many mythical and historical (sometimes hysterical!) adventures. One of Tales best Treasures ever! The "real" Shae was quite a character...so I'd hardly notice she was always IN character!

Not trying to generalize, but to you agree, do you think religion is a mental illness?
DangerDave comments on Dec 12, 2017:
A compartmentalization by too many who demand we have theist leaders who play games with our lives? I'd say so. Many theists see we remain at war in the middle east, either for their holy war or profit. One unforeseen drawback of this "strategy" was the flood of refugees we created who are assimilating religions and cultures wherever they are taken in. All this while they show a total disregard for the environment, every increasing poverty and the futures of their own children. Yeah, that's bat shit crazy in my book!
The Te of Piglet. Do you consider nature to be your teacher or your friend?
DangerDave comments on Dec 12, 2017:
Both and so much more! Of course, I'm speaking as a Spiritual Humanist so I may be expanding on the typical definition to include the universe (known and unknown)...I'll just try not to expound to much! I'm an integral part of nature. It is my friend in the sense it has brought me all my experiences and relationships, my teacher in that it has brought me all I know, and at times a VERY tough teacher. In times of mental anguish or great physical pain, nature seems at times to be a rival! I'm not much of the "outdoorsy" type but I've had some first hand learning as a child (like bee stings *HURT*!!!), some seriously friendly communals, usually with various instruments. A notable recent was stopping near Hoover Dam as I entered Las Vegas. The view of the desert and distant mountains was amazing. A sense of awe, overwhelmed by the beauty, a feeling of oneness all enveloped me.
What is the bible to you?
DangerDave comments on Dec 11, 2017:
A diverse collection of Iron Age judaic mythology that was compiled by the ruling class as a means of population control, edited and added to by later ruling classes to suit their needs to subjugate the masses. It amazes me its still "working" now 4000 years later, especially in that so much of it is contradictory, incorrect, absurd and representative of such a weak, malevolent and petty god.
If you were to write a book, what would it be about?
DangerDave comments on Dec 11, 2017:
Remind me...I do need to get back to it! A fantasy epic with a lot of philosophical references to be found in the characters' thoughts and actions themselves as well the "theoretical theologies" of the gods they believe in...as well as the gods some will become as a result of their actions which become legends, then mythologies, then religions.

DangerDave comments on Dec 11, 2017:
I wish you'd given a "talk it out with the possibility to agree to disagree" option. That's my style and no doubt a reason I'm a confirmed lifelong bachelor! That's because very few women I've been involved with can always accept an "agree to disagree" resolution and I won't tolerate passive-aggressive behavior for very long!
Can you be an agnostic or atheist and still believe in angels, demons, ghosts and life after death?...
DangerDave comments on Dec 11, 2017:
I'm Agnostic and skeptical however I do hold one belief firmly: Like their gods, angels and demons are a part of a belief system some people believe without question. I believe therefore, like their gods, these entities are a sum total of the resultant behaviors of the believers. For instance there are cases of demonic possession that vary widely religion to religion, sect to sect, culture to culture. The very secretive catholic exorcisms are vastly different than those of the weekly televangelists' broadcasts. Still, these are behaviors as a results of the beliefs and therefore, in my opinion, the manifestations of these entities. If the case studies of some are to be believed (not that I necessarily do) there are paranormal events that occur in some of these events, including angel sightings. But rather than immediately agree these are entities outside the individuals involved, I am more apt to believe these are somehow manifest by the believers themselves. Why? There are too many religions with too varied manifestations and not all the religions can be "right". In that there are so many competitive religions from which no "true god" has emerged it is my firm belief they are all "wrong". For me, the jury is out on ghosts and life after death. There is little actual evidence and hoaxes abound. Still, I defer to parapsychologists in the field who sincerely seek to debunk the hoaxes and find rational, natural explanations for the remaining cases. While its a broad generalization, you'll find the agnostic will more readily consider (though not necessarily believe) inconclusive evidence (as I do) while the atheist will wait for empirical proof. But to say I personally believe without question any of the above beyond as I've described, no. Of course, I am only speaking for myself.

If every time you walked into a room, a theme song had to play, what would it be?
DangerDave comments on Dec 11, 2017:
Wow...hard one. Besides several of my own and some great powerful classical pieces (Beethoven, Wagner, Stravinsky,...) if we're going for an entrance my first to come to mind are: Rush - Freewill Amaranthe - Invincible Arch Enemy - You Will Know My Name Of course, I don't always want to make a powerful entrance. Sometimes I just want to be...stupid...so... Weird Al - Dare to be Stupid Cage the Elephant - Ain't No Rest for the Wicked Right Said Fred - I'm Too Sexy Now if we're playing anything backwards I'll pick those Stones, Zep and Eagles tunes with the satanic backwards lyrics to chase away any xians who might be lurking around.
How long should a nonbeliever In a relationship with a believer wait for them to acknowledge slavery...
DangerDave comments on Dec 11, 2017:
I broke up with my last (of three) fiances largely because she was an unbelieving but practicing mormon which she did to appease her family. I had no desire to appease anyone except her...to a degree. I'm glad we did though. I finally found out in this adventure I'm not the marrying type. I've since lived the life of a happy bachelor in which if a conflict in religion, politics or how I live in general in a relationship becomes too troublesome...goodbye!

DangerDave comments on Dec 11, 2017:
Ok...I have to ask...what alternatives are you offering?
Would you worship a god if one existed?
DangerDave comments on Dec 11, 2017:
I don't have a valid vote because of a lot of contingencies. First of all, how would this god reveal itself? Even if there were a booming voice which spoke to all the people of the world simultaneously saying something like "ok, you are finally ready. You are worthy of worshiping me now so let's get started." mmmmk. So what god are you exactly? What proof do you offer? Even before I'd blame aliens I'd consider the possibility of an Illuminati type of new world order populace control operation. I'd need considerable convincing. Benefits of the worship would definitely come into play but the rituals of the worship would be more important to me. How long is this going to take? Are the actual rituals something beneficial to me or just you needing me to make you feel important? Are you THE god or are there others? If there are others what do they have to offer and what will they require of it? When will these benefits manifest? If we're talking about some "great beyond" no thanks...we have a world of religions making the same empty promises. Even though I'm Agnostic I just don't see me worshiping anything. Two points I find abundantly clear: 1) All the world religions are man-made and have very clear basis in mythology bent into population control and 2) IF there is a god it has no desire or need to be worshiped.

Welcome fellow Jedi! (I'm just assuming from the name. I still identify as a Jedi though I have the "old" ordination from before they broke into sects. I prefer the "old ways" anyway.) Anyway...as you can see we are a diverse bunch! Most are friendly enough and you have the happy little "block button" for those few who have a tendency to be too troublesome or tedious. May the Force...and the Farce...be with You!
Does anybody ever feel that the Universe isn’t cruel or nice?
DangerDave comments on Dec 10, 2017:
My first thought is you should forget any concerns of how the universe might affect our lives and look within yourself. Have a long, serious conversation with the one person who knows what makes you happy: you. Some of the happiest people in the world are the most disadvantaged; be it economically, physically, socially or any combination thereof. Sure, having things are great but beyond your basic needs what is it you want? For me its my computers, instruments and some clothes I really like. Of course I want more but overall I'm content with what I have. What activities make you happy? Consider spending more time doing them. People you enjoy visiting? Visit them more often. Our deepest heart's desire at times can be as simple as a glass of water or a walk in the park. Happiness can be elusive as well but only so much as we let it be. And there are life's tragedies but, even during these, we can seek solace in others. Possibly more fulfilling is offering solace...the very act of getting out of ourselves can be fulfilling and rewarding. I am an Agnostic who believes the universe may just be alive and even possibly that ever elusive "god" so many are seeking. However I'm not going to dwell on the idea. Besides the vast number of "ifs" in that remote possibility I know this much: to look beyond myself for anyone or anything to be the source of my happiness is looking the wrong way. I know what makes me happy. I know who makes me happy. But, even in the absence of anything or anyone else I know I have that choice and I am the only one who can make it.

DangerDave comments on Dec 10, 2017:
Hello...and virtual coffee sounds great! My diversions from the sad state of the red state is practicing for my act: at long last I've found a new act lead and have that wondrous inspiration to pick up my instruments and prepare. Perhaps some new tunes are on the way too? Music is my great escape. While there is very little I don't like I've been listening to a lot of the female fronted acts that are inspirations of my own: Heart, Blondie, Pat Benatar...In This Moment, The Pretty Reckless, Delain... That's brought me off a too long stint of video gaming. I've played several RPGs and developed characters into godlike levels as a means of escaping the fate of the nation and my own dilemmas. I've only been on this site a couple of months but you'll see me here with some frequency as well! Welcome!
Are you intuitive and perceptive and why?
DangerDave comments on Dec 10, 2017:
Man, I thought I had it bad coming up. Only my dad was the abusive alcoholic and he was gone most of the time. If only I'd had that option. I was left with my neurotic fundamentalist xian mother who didn't beat us because she had been all her life. But guess what? Since she had to work to support us we were left with our psychotic fundamentalist grandmother who took great pleasure in beating us, yelling such buybull quotes as "Spare the rod..." and "Vengeance is mine..." Yes, you do have to forgive and move on. I actually forgot, or at least repressed, as soon as I moved out for college. Perception for me has been a blessing and a curse. I'd have been better off had I been indoctrinated but my earliest recollections of our religion was it was bull...I at first mistook my Sunday school buybull lessons as really demented and boring kid's fairy tales. Still, in the long run, perception and intuition have served me well. I could pick up on teachers and professors emphases and know exactly what would be on tests. I actually memorized quotes from textbooks for what I predicted with amazing accuracy would be discussion questions. As a counselor, teacher and my chosen professions, "callings" if you will, as a performer, writer and "storyteller" I can read a person, and a crowd, very well. My education degree and counselor training were helpful but the innate abilities I seem to have been born with. These I can describe but have no means of explaining. Perhaps I developed these at a very young age as a survival skill, living in a world where all the "big people" could go from benevolent to ambivalent to violent with little apparent warning.
Am I alone in this?
DangerDave comments on Dec 10, 2017:
Hope without action is just as effective as prayer but sometimes hope is all you have in those situations outside our control. Instead of just sitting around moping and hoping, I'd hope you'd get out and do...something! Simply getting your mind off an adverse situation can be very therapeutic!

Just...WHY???) that smell means love, sustenance, life and a soon to be taste budgasm. Forgive me, my vegan friends. Or not. I'll be a carnivore until at least my first atherrosclerosis induced myocardial infarction. And probably after.

Are Disciplined People Less Attractive?
DangerDave comments on Dec 10, 2017:
NOW I get it. It depends on the discipline and how "disciplined" they insist I be...unless its in the performing arts. I prefer my collaborators to be very disciplined at work but have no such insistence otherwise. Now if this were to be inclusive of a motherly "clean your room" discipline I'd find that very unattractive!
Should religious adoption agencies exist?
DangerDave comments on Dec 10, 2017:
Sadly in the US and elsewhere it would be difficult to do away with religion based adoption agencies. Equally it is sadly their "mission" to indoctrinate these orphans during their stay. Even more sadly in the US we have a sociopolitical climate which accepts these institutions and, as such, provides very little in secular alternatives. Now for the STATES to make such requirements is entirely unconstitutional. I just have to remind myself we are now living in a oligarchy (with too many citizens thinking its a theocracy). Not that its that hard...I get reminded every time I turn on the news these days. bleh

DangerDave comments on Dec 10, 2017:
I am not one to reject Deism in that it cannot be disproved. I personally lean more toward Pantheism which is more inclusive of the sum total of the universe beyond the mere physical realm. I'd struggled all my life with a NEED to know if there was a god or not until I got sober on 3/12/01, knowing with certainty it couldn't be the abrahamic god. Then my AA sponsor, ironically a stout southern baptist, presented me with the concept "you don't have to understand your higher power, just know (it) understands you". That promptly ended my need to know, as if that were in any way possible. Now I am a happy Agnostic who knows only if such a supreme being wanted to be revealed it certainly would do so in the same way to each of us. With that in mind, whether or not such an entity exists becomes a moot point.

DangerDave comments on Dec 10, 2017:
While gods themselves may be the result of myths and legends, they have historically been used by the ruling classes to keep the masses in line, complacent and willing to follow without question. There is no better example than Trump's America, where he plays to the hopes and fears of the religious right. The fact he consistently lies to them, bringing them far more harm than good, means nothing to them. So long as he presents the facade he believes as they do they will follow him to what may likely be a very bitter end.
Researchers claim that humans have souls which can live on after death
DangerDave comments on Dec 10, 2017:
I'm not one to summarily dismiss the possibility but, even if such research was found conclusive which I highly doubt, I'd expect it to be confirmed and accepted by a large majority of researchers in the field...in this case, several interdisciplinary fields who could corroborate the data in several independent studies. I say this because, even if I were so inclined to study the data myself, I won't pretend I'd have any understanding of it. It'd have to be presented much in the way the theory of evolution has been which, while as still a "theory" in and of itself, I accept because of the overwhelming evidence presented in its favor. The main reason I am skeptical of this theory is in part what the article cites as support of it: people in near death experiences often cite meeting angels and other religious avatars. Why? Because these icons are always of their religions and not all religions can be "right". I find these phenomenon to be much more likely caused by the final hopes and fears of a dying brain. Anthropocentrism also comes into play in this research, a common fallacy present in religious research (which is a clear contradiction of terms). The very fact they exclude other sentient life forms immediately raises red flags in my opinion.

DangerDave comments on Dec 10, 2017:
A BA in Orchestral Music Education is my highest level of education. I took it as a fallback for my "rock star" career but, after trying that about 10 years (with only about 5 of those actually teaching music full time) I became too fed up with the bureaucratic BS of both private and public institutions to continue. Three of those teaching years (and my most enjoyable, I might add!) were as a private instructor (voice and all instruments) at the now defunct but then largest music chain in Atlanta, Dirt Cheep Music. I was made a commissioned salesperson soon after (for selling to my students to begin with) and a "swing manager", doing transport and relief for the managers at all nine stores, which began a long string of various sales and management jobs. Still, I've enjoyed performing most and have quit several jobs when I have a marketable act. That's been mostly solo work in that putting a good ensemble together is like herding kittens. I was never content with the solo work either, having to learn new song lists for events (weddings, parties, etc) which I had no interest in at all, being a life long composer myself. I was very happy to have finally had an eight year (feast and famine) tour both as a soloist and with several very talented female leads in an all original "medieval ~ metal" musical theater act I call "Tales from the Last Inn". The act itself was made possible when I finally got a 15 string Renaissance lute (after decades of wanting one). While the act's primary patrons were Renaissance faires and pirate festivals we found gigs in every type of venue from dive bars, pubs and taverns to museums, libraries and colleges. Of several accolades, the one I am most proud of was being chosen as the only non-contestant act at the first ever Merpalooza International Mermaid Pageant and Festival. That's been three years now and I've since worked in sales and moved to Las Vegas. Its been a tough transition but I've finally found a new "Tales' Treasure" and we're working on getting the act together again! YAY!

DangerDave comments on Dec 10, 2017:
I didn't hide my beliefs in my largely fundamentalist southern baptist community. I wish at times I had not been so vocal with my family because I had pretty much alienated them at a young age (probably about 12) but that was because I was venting about the very same frustrations you speak of. It had to happen. In public, I saw no need to expose myself but I was quick to tell the religious I encountered I wanted nothing to do with them. At 15, I was performing in a series of several mostly heavy metal bands which brought out "my people". You may look for such gatherings in areas that interest you. We are abundant in the arts and scientific communities, even in the deep south. The Universal Unitarian Church works for some but it didn't me. They are widely accepting but their "every religion is right" inclusiveness still left me feeling isolated. Finally, I moved. First to Atlanta where I found religion (or lack thereof) was never an issue. Of course, I was working and socializing in the arts communities. I'm sure the same can be said of many urban areas in the south but I now blissfully reside in Las Vegas where every culture is generally accepted. "God" here is the holy dollar bill though so, if you don't have a lot of them, it can be quite a struggle. Most importantly you've identified the potential problem. Use the resources you have to alleviate it. Follow your dreams and concentrate on the things you enjoy, whatever hobbies you may have. You now have this site as well, which lists those close to you. It is growing nicely so, if there are none close to you now, there could be soon. You can "vent" to us online too. That may be preferable to alienating your family! Welcome!

DangerDave comments on Dec 9, 2017:
Possibly, but you greatly increase the likelihood by determining why something is bad and then planning, AND taking, the appropriate steps to make it good. Example: My drinking was GREAT the first decade, "normal" the second and abysmal the third. When I decided it was ruining my life I genuinely sought treatment and became very serious about my recovery. I still accomplished a lot through those decades and my "adventures before and after" are a sum total of who I am today. I've met and overcome many challenges since and guess what? I have a whole new series of them. But I'm working on them, aiming for their resolution before the next set comes along. Hoping for something bad to turn good, just like praying for the same, is useless. If its bad, fix it.

Does The Universe Have Intention?
DangerDave comments on Dec 9, 2017:
IF it does, these intentions would truly be beyond the intellectual capacities of we "mere mortals". One thing we can readily discount is; as evident on this world alone, the creation of creatures who must consume other creatures to survive and the rise of humankind as a dominant species with those needs as well as the need to destroy their own kind for too many reasons; these intentions would in any way altruistic.
Are Religious persons allowed on this Agnostic site? I am new, and have not come across one yet....
DangerDave comments on Dec 9, 2017:
Allowed? Yes. Accepted? Probably not unless they present a sincere desire to understand us, which I find very unlikely. More likely they'd be here to spread the "good news", upon the very mention of they'd be beset by demons of buybullical proportions!

Your religious experiences
DangerDave comments on Dec 9, 2017:
My experiences with religion have always been bad, some horrific, growing up agnostic in the evangelical southern baptist south. I have had many varied spiritual experiences but none I could relate to a religion. Philosophies, yes but never a religion.

What is the non-theist replacement for "I'll pray for you?"
DangerDave comments on Dec 9, 2017:
Based on my own experiences, I can say "I know your pain" (and possibly elaborate) or "I can't imagine what you're going through". Being spiritual by nature, either way I might add "I am with you". I'd then follow with any tangible assistance I'd readily offer adding, "If you need me, just call."
Agnostic: Are you a atheist?
DangerDave comments on Dec 9, 2017:
I was beset by several "evangelical atheists" when I first came to this site so I feel your pain. It is interesting very few have commented to your post. Imagine that. Ironically, these very people who demanded I become an atheist or already was one confirmed my conviction to NEVER be one. The antithesis of the theist, their common ideal of forcing beliefs on others I find both absurd and repulsive. I know those of us who don't know everything are a great annoyance to those who do...but I can live with that.
How do you personally define the word "spiritual?" To me, it does not mean a lack of dogma but still...
DangerDave comments on Dec 9, 2017:
Being an (Agnostic) Spiritual Humanist...I'll try to be brief! I agree with your premises and find them among the most important aspects of my definition so I'll see no need to reiterate. "Spiritual" is definitely a word that needs to be "taken back" from the religious. Still, we cannot deny the causes and effects of the religious experience, especially understanding we are discussing 90% of the population. While in most cases we can dismiss the religions themselves as mythology, we cannot deny the psychological and social impacts of this "spirituality". In that I "believe" in all gods...as the sum total of the behaviors of their believers. Given the brutal history of many, if not most, religions even with the majority of believers' "best intentions" these are powerful and terrible gods indeed! If the theists took a close look at the religions they support, from the obvious hate mongers to the seemingly benign missionaries who force the starving to convert to their deities for food, many might consider the errors of their faith and find a path to a spirituality of reason. To quote from the Spiritual Humanism website (link) : "While it is impossible to remove age old traditions from human culture, we can redirect them by redefining their underlying significance and meanings...By using a method of scientific inquiry we can define the inspirational, singular spark inherent in all living creatures." My spectrum of the word "spirituality" has to include, but is not limited to, emotion and creativity. Even negative emotions fall into this realm in that overcoming them results in some of the most joyful and self defining times of our lives. Still, my greatest spirituality is in the absence of emotion, a "oneness" with the universe which provides the greatest source of creativity I've known. This I achieve in several ways, but here I'll mention doing so by a focus: either on a specific concept or absolutely nothing at all. The former has brought some interesting variations to concepts and solutions to wide varieties of issues and problems. The latter has resulted in some of my greatest achievements in the arts and creative thought. Here I do enter the realm of metaphysics, a seemingly taboo subject for many on this website. My favorite pet theories include Carl Jung's collective unconscious to more modern concepts of a cosmic consciousness. Probably the cornerstone of my spirituality is I do not have to know. I experience as both a physical and spiritual entity. "Being" is more important to me than knowing, with a clear understanding much of spirituality is unknowable and may always be beyond the limitations of human intellect. http://www.spiritualhumanism.org/what.php

I'm spread so thin artistically already but I've often considered photography and videography lessons...BUT... I at times regret formally studying music. Yes, I learned a lot but I also learned the terminology of the very techniques I'd been using in composition since my early teens. My best "classical" compositions came from the heart, not in trying to write by the rules. Danny Elfman (who left the very strange band Oingo Boingo to become one of the most prolific movie score composers of all time) said "My education in film music came from watching tons of films." So yeah, I'll stay a "punk photographer". I have often wondered how The Ramones might have sounded had they been classically trained...but never for long! If you're ever serious about the Chinese Diti lessons I am qualified now to teach you though!

What is the main reason why you are not religious?
DangerDave comments on Dec 7, 2017:
Welcome Alexa! I have a realistic view of the world and, with that, I can clearly see the reasons for religion. The primary one seems to be social engineering. I see the effects as well: damaged psyches, communities, regions, nations...and in the case of the spread of xianity the destruction of entire cultures and the subjugation of continents. The most horrendous events throughout our known history can be traced back to religion...so none for me, thank you but no thank you!
We meet in real life. How do you greet me?

I'm a hugger and, knowing you as I do already, you'd get a full on hug...not something I'd do with most women in this day and time in our current political climate. Most women in my family were huggers till we reached our "untouchable" teens. Shortly after, I moved to some very physical social circles when hugging members of the opposite sex you'd just met was customary. Hey, it was the 70s. We might be doing much more before the day's end!

DangerDave comments on Dec 6, 2017:
Well, you can still SAY we have freedom of speech... Let's face it, our freedoms are eroding. This one I place the blame squarely in the laps of "us" liberals, who seem determined that no one offends anyone else. I am gratefully not among these fragile little snowflakes. I come from a time when you could say the "N" word and it wasn't necessarily an insult. I thoroughly enjoyed and always shared good Polish, Irish, blonde and Helen Keller jokes...and yes, I'm an Irish blonde. I don't get it but this isn't the greatest of our liberties I miss most. I'd have to say that the ability to make a decent living of a 40 hour work week ranks much higher.

DangerDave comments on Dec 6, 2017:
"Those who believe the buybull have never really read it." I know its paraphrased but if anyone knows who is credited for this quote please let me know! I was calling BS when I could first understand bible stories. Snakes don't talk. You're not going to gather two of each animal from all over the world in a day. No once could survive being in the belly of a whale three days and live. And trying to hear these stupid stories and sing "Jay-Zeus Loves Me" was both difficult and contradictory, listening to a preacher screaming over a few thousand watt amplifier in the next room to all our parents all the many reasons we were all going to "Hey-Ya'll". My thoughts on that were if in the unlikely event I ever went to "Hey-Ya'll" I'd just say "Hey, Ya'll !!!" to all my friends. I was a really weird kid in our southern baptist community. Coincidence? Not really. Most of the religious just repeat the few passages pounded into their heads at their chosen cults (or churches). If they ever change their minds there are other similar cults they can attend or they can even choose from several other thousands of sects (denominations) with an entirely different set of select passages. Its not like the religious want to know anything. They just want to be told what to believe.
What makes you leery about someone?
DangerDave comments on Dec 6, 2017:
"Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit." the Desiderata My immediate "leery". While I rarely have GQ days people who are sloppily dressed and/or odoriferous in public. On getting to know people, let's just say I gravitate to artists and lovers of the arts (well, yeah, being an artist!). Not a requirement but I've seen seen too many without some eye, ear or even taste (double entendre intended) for the arts (visual, performance, culinary...) to be decidedly two dimensional and boring. Know-it-alls. Religious (or non) fanatics. Politicians. People who jump in front of me in checkout lines. This is just a partial list but I'm sure you get the idea.

How could Adam and Eve sin if they didn't know sin yet?
DangerDave comments on Dec 5, 2017:
Buybull-ically, when they ate of the tree of knowledge they arguably committed the first sin, though Eve gets the double down because she tempted Adam to eat of it. Why any benign god would have such a temptation available to his new favorite toys is beyond any reason, as well as allowing the "snake" access to the garden. Apparently this omniscient god missed the snake sneaking in. More contradictions. I share The Skeptics Annotated Bible everywhere such abrahamic absurdities arise. Enjoy! http://skepticsannotatedbible.com/

What’s your view on free will?
DangerDave comments on Dec 5, 2017:
I'm an adult and I'll exercise my freewill within the bounds of the law with what minuscule remaining resources are at my disposal that our society and our government allow me. Among the many reasons I moved to Nevada was I like to smoke dope. I'll spare you the many others just by saying in general I wanted to get away from the xian conservative controlled southern states I'd lived in all my life. The move itself was an exercise in freewill. Giving freewill to a child is an entirely different matter. They do need to be taught and protected from many things they would instinctively want to do. To compare them to adults is comparing apples and oranges. I certainly hope you're not suggesting more restrictions on adults using children as an analogy. If you are, who is deciding what's "harmful"? You? Some other new government agencies to pile even more restrictions on us?
Do you think dreams have any real meaning?
DangerDave comments on Dec 4, 2017:
Absolutely! I've done considerable reading on the psychological causes of dreams. As a counselor, I was instructed to have our clients keep dream journals and was instructed to do so myself when I was in rehab. Of course, not all dreams have meaning but many are subconscious, often symbolic, responses to our fears, desires or are related to outstanding, often traumatic, life events. An example: I had a recurring and very frightening dream from my youth to rehab of a huge disfigured giant chasing me I had no hope of outrunning. I'd always awaken when he was just about to catch me. While many details were given by my therapist, most with astounding accuracy, the basic interpretation was I felt overwhelmed by my situation and the giant was a representation of the problems I faced, indicating a deep seated fear I would be overcome by them. I'll offer this article as a brief layman's introduction to psychological dream interpretation. It has some good references if you'd like further academic studies. https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/dream-analysis-psychology_us_59b6e640e4b0a50fd051fd03
Should gambling be legal in the U.S.?
DangerDave comments on Dec 4, 2017:
If I'm a zealot about anything, its personal liberties. No one can claim to be truly free if they are met with ANY restrictions beyond infringing on the personal liberties of others. (That concept is an ethical quagmire in and of itself I won't go into at this time.) I would suggest having therapy readily available for addicts but, here in Las Vegas, there are as many free GA groups as there are casinos. Those who have a problem and want help can find it. Those who have a problem and DON'T want help are going to indulge the addiction, whether its legal or not. Clandestine gambling halls and sports books are virtually anywhere anyone is so inclined to find or create them. The benefits of gambling in Nevada are amazing. There are no state income taxes and other taxes are comparable to those of other states, yet our public services and infrastructure are among the best in the nation. A large part of the tax revenue that makes this possible comes from the gambling industry. On a personal note I was concerned my OCD would create a gambling problem I'd have to deal with just as I have my other addictions. I'm proud to say I (as of yet) have only gambled the "free money" most casinos give you on a first visit. I've walked away from every one when the money was gone except one. There, I played slots for two hours till I was bored and cashed in the $30 remaining of the $50 they gave me, wishing I'd done so when I topped out at about $120. I only got the membership cards (with the free money) for the buffet discounts anyway. The food is always awesome and abundant. Now there' an addiction I have to watch our for!
What do you do when you get bad news?
DangerDave comments on Dec 4, 2017:
It depends on the news but I certainly do my best to rectify the situation to the best of my ability. Some things, such as death, cannot be "rectified" in and of itself but I will try to find my own consolation in consoling others. I'm am now in the midst of several struggles from a series if unfortunate events. I've done what I can over the past month to resolve these during a head cold that turned into a serious infection. The lost time at work definitely didn't help and, though I managed a full week last week, I'm so far behind on my financial solutions I can't see the light at the end of the tunnel. Still, I carry on to the best of my ability and know that light will be out there somewhere IF I continue working to get there. As far as your situation goes my input is do what you can. Check in on them often. Simply showing affection and concern can work wonders for the attitude, and hence recovery, of the injured and otherwise distressed.

Are the religious willfully ignorant?
DangerDave comments on Dec 3, 2017:
I like "willfully ignorant". To paraphrase Bill Maher from "Religilous" there are otherwise intelligent people who must go through some serious compartmentalization to believe in talking snakes and blood for sin. That way of thinking has always been so inconceivable to me but apparently that puts me in a small minority of the world's population.
Tough One: What is One of Your Completely Original Thoughts?

DangerDave comments on Dec 3, 2017:
It depends on your definition of "magic". I consider what I do as a performer, teacher and counselor to be among my primary "enchantments". I consider my theatrical voice training to be at the forefront of my "magical" skills. Inflection, tone and carefully chosen words can be very convincing and cause dramatic changes in the listeners' points of view. Of course most of this is readily explainable in scientific terms. Semantics aside, the ability to change perception, and sometimes lives, is a very profound skill.

Can Atheists/Agnostics Have a "Spirituality" that Does Not Depend on the Supernatural?
DangerDave comments on Dec 3, 2017:
Being an (Agnositc) Spiritual Humanist my vote is a resounding YES!!! Meditation is a definite example of my spirituality. I wouldn't call myself a Buddhist but I do agree with many of their philosophical concepts, especially in the "oneness" that can be achieved through meditation. Being a performing artist (composer, choreographer, lyricist, writer, etc) I "wander" in the ethereal from whence I find an abundant source of inspiration. I've expounded on those ideas in a previous post: https://agnostic.com/discussion/3890/spirituality-for-agnostics-and-maybe-even-atheists
Isn't the idea about the rapture silly?

brush with death
DangerDave comments on Dec 3, 2017:
First, thank you for your service. I have the greatest respect for those who put their lives on the line for my simple freedoms to even be able to post in a forum such as this. I was a drunken carouser in my younger years and took on several opponents who beat me to near death. I'm just now overcoming one of many near fatal infections (I have lupus so I am prone to them) which went from common cold symptoms to fading sight, energy levels and cognitive abilities very rapidly. Even though I was brought up in a fundamentalist Southern Baptist family and community I have always been agnostic and quite sure the "buybull" was asking me to do just that. I have never felt a compulsion to pray during those experiences but instead did what felt would best allow me to survive.
Do you believe you will see your love ones again after you die? Why?
DangerDave comments on Dec 3, 2017:
This is a tough question and one that can have many responses. Citing cases of near death experiences (NDE) I'd say most definitely! But are these really seeing loved ones or the hallucinations that can be expected in a dying brain? It is interesting to note that people who have had NDE also report seeing THEIR deity, prophet, etc. This line of reasoning would have us believe EVERY religion is "right" which in and of itself is a major contradiction of most religious beliefs. We cannot know until we die so I suggest you live your life to its fullest potential. This will not only make you the most complete human being you can be but, if you do have loved ones you'll meet in the "great beyond", they will certainly be more impressed!
Who believes as i do of aliens visited earth and they were made out to be gods, only because of ...
DangerDave comments on Dec 3, 2017:
I keep it open as a possibility but there was a time I was sold. I began reading Erich von Däniken ("Chariots of the Gods", etc) at about the age of 10 and, looking for "reason beyond religion", I was completely taken by this line of thought. Surely there are enigmas in earth's history but those do include the ingenuity and resourcefulness of our distant ancestors. A case in point is our "Dark Ages", when abrahamic religions all but ended serious scientific inquiry for over 1000 years. Today I find the possibilities of ancient advanced civilizations (such as Atlantis) equally compelling.
Age & Romance: How Low (or High) will you go?
DangerDave comments on Dec 3, 2017:
I am thrilled to announce I have a new 19 year old act lead and almost as happy to announce she is in a committed relationship. While I often enjoy romantic adventures with my act leads those excursions do tend to complicate the business of the act itself. Still, she fulfills any emotional and "romantic" needs I have at this point in my life simply in sharing our mutual interests in performing arts, as well as the development of her skills and the discovery of how she works as a performer. Of course getting to spend time with someone with such mutual and unusual interests and aspirations is a definite plus, something that has been sadly missing from my life for several years now! Its nothing nearly romantic but she has encouraged me to "get my act together" again, to rehearse and be well prepared for our rehearsals. (This is a primary reason I haven't been around awhile and I'm here now merely for the fact she had to cancel our weekend session.) I have always been attracted to young, beautiful women...especially creative, intelligent and charismatic ones. Hugh Hefner is my hero. Still, since my twenties and three failed engagements, I make it clear marriage is not on the table and any exclusivity in the relationship is not a requirement. So, for me at my age ( 58 ), X < 30. Call me a "dirty old man" if you will, and I am a "Dom" of an entirely different meaning as well, but it works for me.
Advice on writing a book? Have any?
DangerDave comments on Dec 3, 2017:
You've received some great advice and I have very few additions. Being a writer (primarily fiction) and having been a high school English teacher (out of necessity as a Music teacher in many small private schools) I became very aware of grammar, usage and form. From that standpoint I'll take a look at your post as if I were speaking to a student. The first apparent problem you have is run on paragraphs. Whenever you are presenting a new line of thought, or a differing view of the same line of thought, its time for a new paragraph. Use a space between each and, if you're writing the work itself, an indentation. I suggest five spaces. Avoid overly long sentences and, when you must use commas in a long sentence, use a semicolon to clearly show additional information; these simple changes to your style will make your concepts much easier to understand. Reread your work, paragraph by paragraph and sentence by sentence, to ensure you are expressing complete and coherent thoughts. Reread as if you were speaking to someone. If you're experiencing any difficulties in understanding it is almost certain your reader will. A final recommendation is RESEARCH! You are hoping to write an original work on a subject in which many academic works have already been published. Be sure to cite your sources, of course. Finally, I'll offer my college textbook on grammar and usage. There must be similar resources on the internet but I studied and taught in a time when there was no internet. Three desk essentials at that time were a good collegiate dictionary, a good collegiate thesaurus and most definitely the McGraw-Hill Handbook of English Grammar and Usage. I kept all these within easy reach and referred to them often regardless of the topic, both fiction and non. https://www.amazon.com/McGraw-Hill-Handbook-English-Grammar-Usage/dp/0071799907
Energy Cannot Naturally Be Created or Destroyed! isn't this scientific principle proof of Eternity?!...
DangerDave comments on Dec 3, 2017:
Being Agnostic and a priest of Spiritual Humanism, I find the concept of life energy being "eternal" intriguing though we cannot fathom eternity, locked in space and time in our mortal, physical shells. Theists will scream "YES!!!" as loudly as the atheist will scream "NO!!!!" but the simple fact of the matter is no one can know with complete certainty. I've read a lot of research from both sides and, while I don't pretend to understand it all, both sides come to the debate with their own preconceptions. It is definitely one of the most biased areas of debate about human existence, largely because this concerns one of the most important core beliefs of both theist and atheist. I feel no compulsion to argue the unknowable and find the very concept both absurd and self-serving. Instead, I am content to live in a wondrous, ever evolving universe with a simple understanding that in this life we are far more than just physical beings. I am however a proponent of the "energy of self" side and offer these simple explanations as reasons, though hardly absolute proof, for this belief. https://www.huffingtonpost.com/robert-lanza/5-reasons-you-wont-die_b_810936.html

Depression is an infinite loop of thoughts. What do you think ?
DangerDave comments on Dec 3, 2017:
My depression was associated with alcoholism and addiction. Getting clean marked the start in my ever diminishing depression. Depression does not have to be infinite though it seems it is when you are experiencing it. Seek the source and deal with it accordingly.
