I took the personality type test on a whim. I am type ESTJ-T and it says my role is sentinel. My strategy is social engagement.

In my youth I studied to be a Pentecostal minister. It's the worst thing I ever did and it haunted me for years because I dropped away from it until I realized that gods are imaginary. For the first time I have real freedom now.

I’m an over thinker and I feel like it always ruins my dating chances 🤷🏽‍♂️. Thoughts?...
DenoPenno comments on Aug 22, 2019:
I overthink to extremes. It has helped me a lot and I can actually see why I do many things because of this. It is also **not** good for dating and relationships. I'm not sure how to stop it. Recently I have seen how what would appear to be totally unconnected events are really connected after all. When I put this together I see that we have no "free will." Everything is repetition of one kind or another of some past learned thing and this is what we are all about.
My religions professor is very adamant about convincing us atheists are just as religious as ...
DenoPenno comments on Aug 22, 2019:
Everyone knows there is a god. We know this because the book told us so. Maybe that is what the professor is going on. Didn't the movie show that the mean old atheist became atheist because god killed his daddy? Then at the end there was a Catholic priest there to rescue him at his own death. Oh, how touching. He is dead, dammit!
An important distinction to learn as an agnostic
DenoPenno comments on Aug 22, 2019:
If mythical beings are involved it is all religion to me. The main difference is that bible believers actually think that these beings will show up some day and take them to another place. They will live there and the ones who have died are already there if they believed. "Yes, old Charlie is in Heaven now. It's strange though because I just saw them lower his body into the ground a few minutes ago."
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if could eliminate all of the god worshipping from all of the physical ...
DenoPenno comments on Aug 22, 2019:
Many think that Christian fellowship is what modern religion is all about. They are wrong. It is all about the fellowship and not the invisible sky man.
UPDATE on Religion's professor saying atheism is a religion. I've been asked so many times for ...
DenoPenno comments on Aug 22, 2019:
I think some religious people are so stupid that they claim you can make a "god" out of your car or your wife. I have even heard sermons on it. The common mistake is that you must be worshiping something. My question is why do you have to worship anything? Why does everybody have to "serve" somebody? (Sorry, Dylan.) :)

DenoPenno comments on Aug 22, 2019:
I agree. As a TV and film nut I can also say that the worst kind of sex is what you see in movies and TV. Sometimes they simply throw in a sex scene and it was not even needed. I'm also not a fan of the "head banging" sex that is often added and supposedly considered normal. That would have to be extremely distracting for both parties.

DenoPenno comments on Aug 22, 2019:
The timeframe is different with everyone. I once had grief that took me almost 7 years to deal with. You will know when you are ready and do not let anyone push you on as if there is a set timeline. There is not.
New scam today - a call from 'barclaycard' telling me a transaction for a few hundred pounds was ...
DenoPenno comments on Aug 21, 2019:
It's always a scam. Some will do anything to get me to say the word "yes." I suppose that is for voice notification loans in the future or something. Others want to "reward me" for using credit cards or to distract me for my information by using Medicare. Since Trump and his GOP are doing nothing for or about Medicare why would I bother? Last I heard Trump will give us a fabulous Medicare plan but you have to re-elect him first. Meanwhile, McConnell says the GOP is not going to do anything with healthcare regardless of what Trump says.
How sad it must be to be a Trump supporter....
DenoPenno comments on Aug 21, 2019:
**I agree totally only they do not see it that way**. If you corner them on Trump being a clever businessman because he cheated others they will reply that he did that because he was a clever businessman.
Trump says..... I am the chosen one! 1. President Donald Trump on Wednesday declared himself ...
DenoPenno comments on Aug 21, 2019:
"The chosen one" is something straight out of false religious beliefs fostered by a DC political fellowship that thought all of our elected officials were "chosen by god.." With various names over the years and hiding their agenda secretly they are now portrayed as "The Family" in a Netflix series. Evangelicals believe this nonsense and it is the current "glue" between church and state. Somehow, if you are elected, you are "chosen by god." It makes me sick and should be illegal.

[abcnews.go.com] Trump calls off trip to Denmark because Danish Prime Minister calls his interest...
DenoPenno comments on Aug 21, 2019:
Is Trump a moron? Is the whole world laughing at him? They certainly were at the UN when he announced he had done more for us than any other president. Then Fox Noise played that clip without the laughter and later it was said that Trump was "only joking." I'm repeating here, but this remark was presented to me by a former friend of over 50 years long before Trump said it himself. I am no longer friends with that man and can never be his friend again. Trump's America is not my America and it never can be.

DenoPenno comments on Aug 21, 2019:
But no one cares. Let's assume Trump talks 10 different things and 3 of them turn out to be true. The idea is to keep on repeating it all and some idiots will start looking at the remaining 7 things and wonder if they might be true also. This is how Trump gaslights you. Next comes that believer who claims US Steel laid off those workers "just to spite Trump." It is a big conspiracy and has spread over the entire world.

DenoPenno comments on Aug 20, 2019:
From watching the Netflix series "The Family" recently I have come to believe that the entire federal government thinks that they are "Christian." Their insane prayer breakfasts are directed at spreading nonsense that is wrong or doesn't exist and they take in Evangelicals and others for their strange point of view. I'm sure that they think they have the right to fire, or demand the firing of almost anyone they want to. I see this at the base of an LGBTQ war along with other illegal doings.

Proud Boys Declare Portland Rally A Success
DenoPenno comments on Aug 18, 2019:
Why does anyone want a sign of Donald Trump's support? Maybe they are starting a conservative business. I'm also anti-fascist but I cannot understand a group who runs around with covered faces as an image. Are they wanting to be Superheros? All of this is what happens when you allow Reality TV to enter the White House and suddenly we have Reality POTUS. It is no wonder that the rest of the world is laughing at America today. Sometimes I want to laugh also through my tears.

DenoPenno comments on Aug 18, 2019:

DenoPenno comments on Aug 18, 2019:
I feel the same way. A friend of mine tells me my "last chance" might be the local Senior Center. He's religious and goes there to give them support. I went there with him once to check it out and what I found was a group who prays over food and also does the pledge of allegiance. Then I discovered that if you get into a conversation with any of them you will quickly be told what is "fake news." I almost wanted to puke!

DenoPenno comments on Aug 17, 2019:
The media can be biased but the real attack on mainstream media comes from Donald Trump. He would rather that his view of things be the only view. Jolanta is right in saying it is all about money and power. It would be a hoot in the end if it came out Bernie has more money than Trump.

Woman arrested for holding black teens at gunpoint
DenoPenno comments on Aug 17, 2019:
I think she is confused and thinks she is entitled to something that those kids might be taking away. Her fear is another diversion caused by Clownface and it is bringing out her hatred. "White must be right." I read recently that a white 60 something man said that "Donald Trump might be the white man's last chance." Chance for what? I don't think I want to live in these people's world. They scare me.
What is wrong with people? Pulling a gun on black kids because your imagination ran wild? ...
DenoPenno comments on Aug 17, 2019:
"She already noticed that a dog ran them off from another home." Is she spying or lying? This woman is confused and afraid. She thinks she is "entitled" to something and the kids might be taking it away. Thank Gawd, she is white and he leader makes her right. (I do not mean Jebus.)

Feds Spent More On Marijuana Prohibition In 2018 Than Fighting Domestic Terrorism ...
DenoPenno comments on Aug 17, 2019:
Not where I want my tax dollars going at all, but OK with the conservative crowd. I work with one who keeps reminding me in conversations that the Feds still hold marijuana as illegal. I don't even use the product any longer. These are the same people who do not want "their tax dollar" going for your healthcare. I'm often wondering why there is so much hate. Could each of us have our own tax dollars going for our own healthcare? Maybe, if Trump did not give the money to the top one percent. These same groups point out that there is no medical use of marijuana and studies showed that years ago. Really? What were the studies and what groups did them? Maybe we should believe instead the smiling person in the ad who will be "pain free all day" because he took double strength Advil.

DenoPenno comments on Aug 16, 2019:
I remember that day well. I was in Texas City, Texas on a service call at the home of a black lady. We were on her porch discussing the ailing clothes dryer when her son came out of the house and said "I think y'all better come inside and look at the TV. They just said Elvis Presley was found dead." We went inside and watched TV for the next hour.

Maybe today we are so afraid of offending. If I am in Walmart and other stores like it people all say "excuse me" when they walk in front of me, beside me, or behind me. This happens if we are within 4 feet of each other. Hey, we all have to walk somewhere. Nobody cut me off or walked into me and I don't own the floor. Sometimes I smile and say there is no problem. Polite is polite but I feel like people are scared to death. As far as back and forth banter I get along with everyone and that includes those who do open carry.

DenoPenno comments on Aug 14, 2019:
I have issues with insomnia brought on by anxiety and all of this goes into laying in bed aware of things still in my mind. Some of it is exaggerated by a dream state. Doctors want to give you a drug that knocks you out at bedtime but I could not have this. I have to be aware of what is going on. I see films of real events where you are asleep while someone is in your house. I live alone so I would be aware of this quickly. I hear everything even outside. What helps a lot is to not have the TV on as yo lay in bed, and you might have an hour of gentle music playing real low in the background, then shut off on it's own. They do have "sleep music" for this. I think I only woke up 3 times last night, and I have discovered that if you wake up every 2 hours you will have daytime sleep issues also. A good night's sleep is essential.

They have turned it on us for a reason. We are now the product. Everyone wants a cell phone that kisses your ass and then makes you breakfast.

If you want to work 2 or more jobs and have a partner doing the same, it is all still there. Along the way everyone is free to keep up with the Joneses. I add all this silliness as just one more reason to **not** believe in gods. The "**gods**" are the ones doing this to you and they are flesh and blood just as you are.

Mass shootings: Americans struggle to talk about guns and racism - The Washington Post
DenoPenno comments on Aug 12, 2019:
That struggle has some of the same old denial on conservative talk radio. One tactic they have always used is to get you to believe the other side did the same thing. It is a distraction and usually not relevant or not true. When it comes to the recent mass shootings I am now hearing that one shooter was a Bernie supporter and another was for Elizabeth Warren. Anything to get the racist tweets and rants of Trump out of the picture. Now, let's see if I got this right. The mass shootings are carried out in part by young men who support "Medicare for All" but are tired of the "Hispanic invasion of Texas" and "illegals crossing our borders." This is what conservative talk radio is pushing. Then I find that Trump called our borders an "invasion" and his racist tweets and ideas are put on Fox News who claims it is an "attack on patriotism" to question Donald Trump. Folks, this is all fuct up!

DenoPenno comments on Aug 12, 2019:
I've talked to some gun nuts who think the Founding Fathers wrote in a clause to allow citizens every weapon that the government had just in case that mean old government decided to "take us over." This is far reaching indeed and has no common sense. The government does not want you to own a gun. The NRA wants you to own a gun. Keep in mind that dope and armaments are 2 of the worlds biggest money makers.

Sex is enjoyable but should be private in my view. In the 1970's myself and friends were talking about sex and a female relative said she had nailed me on an issue of whether I had sex with a certain person because I entered that conversation and told a story like the others. I reminded her that she did not hear me give a name like the others were doing. No, you will never hear me give a name. Some people like sex to remain private.

DenoPenno comments on Aug 11, 2019:
Trump will make a lot of promises that he will claim to keep if you only re-elect him. He can do nothing right now but will say he will if you re-elect him, then he goes off on nonsensical tirades again as if he has forgotten it all. It's like that great healthcare he is going to give everyone after 2020 but McConnell says plainly that the GOP is not going to take up anything on healthcare.

Who needs a savior when we have science and Hitchens wisdom?
DenoPenno comments on Aug 11, 2019:
A savior from what? It boils down to the fact that Jesus is going to save you from what god promised to do to you if you do not believe. It's a setup. You have been trapped. Many theists point out that Jesus saves you from your enemies and bad things that might happen to you, but world events doesn't back this up. If you fall for it you can then understand why heaven has a gate and also walls. Apparently if you make it to heaven there might be enemies outside the city. OMG, what do we do?

If you want to throw in a conspiracy just imagine that Epstein was told if he did this his money would go to his heirs as planned. If he did not, it would be lost forever. Just sayin.'

The American people around me have been taught that they do not deserve healthcare and also that it would cost too much. They think that if Bernie or someone like him was POTUS at this moment we would have instant Socialism and resent that healthcare would come out of a common till. Then they turn red and damned near explode to claim that illegals should not have heathcare. Many of these people are so ignorant that they think Mexicans come here and within 6 months are drawing Social Security. It simply is not so and never was so. Most of them also think that marriage grants an immigrant citizenship. This is not so either. Citizenship and marriage are separate issues and one does not bestow the other.

If he changes it may take a lifetime. I had a close friend for over 50 years that believes Trump is next to a godsend. We were at odds over Trump belief for a time and one day he told me the border situation could be solved quickly by shooting people who cross it down like dogs and just let their bodies remain where they fall. He even told me Trump would approve of it. I cussed him out in a very big way and he and I will never be friendly again. The above is a true story and you might see that my former friend is not the brightest bulb. Look closely and you can also see the supposed background of some of our recent shooters. To distance from crazy shooter ideas the Trump GOP tries to say one of the recent shooters was a Bernie follower and yet another one a Warren follower. OK. Now Trump's GOP wants you to believe that someone supporting Medicare for All is doing mass shootings. Not in this world. It's just more word salad by those who will fight for Trump's right to say anything and incite almost everyone. Trump is not a leader and he does not care about you. He only cares about Donald Trump.

Exactly so. Currently they go along with it for love of power or mistaken belief that they are the supreme white race. No, this is not the left. It is the Trump Swamp GOP which has no empathy or backbone for common humanity. When Trump is gone they will cry out that they did not know. Everyone said "it cannot happen here" and they set back and did all they could to bring it on.

I agree with you fully on this but we have an age difference. In earlier life I believed in every kind of woo. Today I believe in none. Woo is BS in the same way that gods are BS. People always hint that if I don't "hurry up" and find god or another woman I just might run out of time. LOL My longtime theist friend from age 12 or so thinks it should be a "church woman." Am I worried that I might run out of time? No. Believers have the most ignorant reasons to believe.

DenoPenno comments on Aug 10, 2019:
If this supreme god was not himself created, how do we know that the universe was created. In fact, none of us are "created" in the biblical sense of coming into being. I am not mud man and you are not rib woman.
Science clashes with biblical literalism. But literalism is not traditional or genuine Christianity....

Many people think they can trace their church back to Jesus Christ. I have met those who claim they can trace their's back to John the Baptist. :)

People that post this nonsense are of a belief that Trump was right on the issue when the idea was to contort "patriotism" so as to not know (or be dumb) on what the kneeling was about in the first place. Trump knew he could turn the meaning because almost everyone likes sports. The appeal was to white nationalism while ignoring facts of too many cops shooting black people. My amazement comes in as too many of my own relatives are on Trump's side of this. They must be ignorant and blind.

What Trump really wants is social media to stop you from posting anything bad about him or his GOP. He might be happy if this led into "hate speech" directions but on the other hand he could say anything he likes and get away with it. This is the nature of Donald Trump who has studied Hitler in great detail.

Trumpism seems to be bleeding over into the general populace. In fact, Trump is recorded as only telling 56 lies last week. He is improving and the Evangelicals are a big part of this. What doesn't make the news so much is the "prayer breakfasts" that his GOP is having everywhere and these include Mitch McConnell. The impression is that Trump's GOP is just one big happy religious family. This makes it easier for the mainstream media to "overlook" his racist and white supremacist rants and remarks as his defenders claim he is pure as snow in his desires for America. The idea is to make the general public think Trump and his GOP want everything that you want. The setup on this is to hope that Pence follows Trump and America can get its Christian Nation. Do they want everything that you do?** Of course not**. Trump has rescinded Obama bills that would allow a person with mental illness to buy a gun regardless of that illness. Trump is also trying to make it harder for you to sue the doctor if he cuts off the wrong leg in surgery. Of course, Trump says "we will all be happy." We should find the door they came through and show them the way out before they take too many bites.

DenoPenno comments on Aug 8, 2019:
I agree fully with FFRF on this. Religion has no place in public schools in the first place but they keep playing with this idea and have for years. I suspect that the current administration has a lot to do with this because I saw a PBS program last night on TV that went into great detail about "prayer breakfasts" that were popular now all over. Politics has embraced it fully and even Mitch McConnell is involved. Trump and his GOP are setting it up to get what they want and desire out of the believers. Frankly, it should be against the law. I'm not anxious for Casper the Friendly Ghost to decide things for me. Public schools are also not a place to be told about gods.

Can atheism provide a strong sense of meaning and purpose? Why would we need such a thing? Your meaning a purpose is strictly** up to you**. It should never be decided by something invisible and external to you.
