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.

As a young teenager I was loaned books like "Sexology" by a young woman older than myself. The purpose of this book is to teach you the truth about sex. My dad found a copy and called it pornography. His day of this thing was all "out behind the barn." LOL I just looked up the book and it was around until 1983.
So, I have a question? Is it me, or do men and women Mourne differently, I personally want a woman ...
DenoPenno comments on Mar 8, 2020:
Not only do men an women mourn differently, they think differently. This seems to start when girls have parents pierce their ears (often in multiple piercings) when they are extremely young. It carries on into both boys and girls playing with dolls but the boy doll is G.I. Joe while girls have something similar to Barbi. The doll types and names are changing today but this pattern is still the same. Now to answer your question, yes, you are a pig.

DenoPenno comments on Mar 8, 2020:
I sort of invent things to alter problem areas in carpentry and design as well as some things mentally. This comes from my inner desire to save money and not spend senselessly. In the end it spills over into inner workings of how I think and is responsible for needed changes in design or procedure. I hate change and yet this is all needed change. I see changes in my thinking and designs in just the last 2 years. Some things involving my shower door were actually dangerous. You make changes to better yourself. Sometimes you find a shortcut or a better way than what you were doing before. I have designed my own lightweight TV antenna and it works very well. I have no plans of changing it. The EVIDENCE of how well something works is usually enough for me, but in time everything changes. I read once that Ben Franklin invented a stove and the smoke it produced drove him out of his house. This inspired him to invent a chimney. I believe the story. In his kite flying days, however, he is lucky he did not get killed. I feel that way sometimes myself and this is why I come to a point of changing my previous judgment. Unlike Franklin I am not leaving inventions behind, just bettering myself. To keep up I have to change a previous idea or judgment all the time.

Yes, Rodney King. Found later in his time on earth dead at the bottom of a swimming pool. They claim he drowned. Maybe he had some help and maybe not. I love that term of believing in your heart and not your mind. You hear this often but all my heart does is pump blood. As a people we are brainwashed into believing so much nonsense about the heart. From Valentines to loving, it just never ends. Bumper stickers like "I (heart) NY." It is amazing. Now, if the truth be told all of those people inside that church believing of one heart and mind is just a lie. The minister takes you to that point where you think everyone believes the same but it simply is not true. To prove it just try asking them later and separately what they believe. You will get different answers.

DenoPenno comments on Mar 7, 2020:
I'm not surprised by this idea. The film "God Is Not Dead" had the same idea and believers always seem to think more about death and "getting right" with their god. I totaled a work truck out one time and it happened so quickly. I wore a seat belt and was not hurt at all. The last thoughts in my mind as the truck went out of control were "now I'm gonna be hit by all these other vehicles" but it did not happen. I had no god thoughts.

DenoPenno comments on Mar 7, 2020:
As an update to this post I was listening to The Dave Weinberg radio program on 92.9 FM Friday 3-6-2020 when the same question came up about how unreasonable any program like Medicare for all would be. Dave says it is impossible because the **total wealth of America is 98 trillion dollar**s. If we even tried this sort of program would we be like Russia or maybe worse? It just will not work. There you have it again. Big Pharma wins and countries smaller than us have so much more wealth than us. Besides that it is socialism but Trump bailing out the farmers is not socialism. WTF is wrong with people? Can nobody think any longer?

Help with book about Old/New Testament differences
DenoPenno comments on Mar 3, 2020:
The Old T seems full of vengeance, laws, and anger and Jesus believed in the Old T according to scripture. Jesus was Jewish and so were those in the Old T. The New T is in some ways more kind hearted but not the words of Jesus at all. There are some legends there and then the rest of it seems to have been written mostly by Saul of Tarsus. BTW, Saul never met Jesus and neither did Josephus. Neither of them were contemporaries of Jesus.

DenoPenno comments on Mar 3, 2020:
It would seem that we have a responsibility towards all living things, otherwise they might disappear. If it is animals in question and we eat them, and a group of us thinks it is OK to eat them, then we do it. We have to keep this action in control of they might disappear forever. Coming up now to fellow humans we would control them, persecute them, and even murder them but again this is only allowed by group. It is the group that is elite. Doing any of this as an individual could end up with bad consequences and even charges of murder. Sorry Donnie. Thanks but no thanks.

DenoPenno comments on Mar 2, 2020:
So I am 11% left and 41% liberal. Isn't the left liberal? The test says I am a "communitarian." I'm not sure what that is and I view a lot of questions in the test as stacked questions. It seems to me the questions are written by some of our current regime conservatives. I found this confusing and I looked up "communitarian." Communitarianism is a philosophy that emphasizes the connection between the individual and the community. Its overriding philosophy is based upon the belief that a person's social identity and personality are largely molded by community relationships, with a smaller degree of development being placed on individualism.

In reality no one thinks as you do. No one thinks as I do. We like to believe that others do, but they only share some of our thoughts and opinions. Let me switch to that religion you do not like discussing. Imagine a scene inside a church where the minister proclaims that everyone is of "like mind" over some of his sermon and statements. It's false. Everyone inside that building is not of like mind. If you get lucky enough you might have friends there that are closest to your own thoughts. Being a member of Agnostic is similar to that too. Welcome.

DenoPenno comments on Mar 2, 2020:
In my opinion what is happening is that the DNC is insistent on "business as usual" and they do not like anything or anybody who is progressive. Obama even warned us all to avoid things progressive. Isn't that just wonderful. It worked out great in the last election. So now, we have Mayor Pete and others dropping out. What these candidates would hope for is that someone actually getting the nomination would keep them in mind for some office and appointment and they could stir their supporters towards the stronger candidate. There we go. Business as usual again. (Hello, Trump. Welcome back..) The tide has turned slightly with Bloomberg in the race. To me it means that we have to acknowledge that money is behind all of this and "we the people" are now being offered a choice of which type of oligarchy we want to control us. Whatever happens we are still the product. I think many of us know this deep down and that fact is at the base of a lot of the anger that I see. Our "rulers" cannot be honest with us and we know it but we cannot admit it.

DenoPenno comments on Mar 1, 2020:
If you cannot explain it and it also perplexes you in some way, then god did it. Apply the same in some way for your personal situation as it unfolds daily and god does it. People do this because they search for answers and have to have answers. In my personal daily experiences everything works out for me. This is because my mind is working in the background wanting things to work out and I am actively doing this. A person does this without being aware of it but some use it as a claim (and proof) of a god. Common sense says it is hard to imagine a god who allows you to prosper from any endeavor including a yard sale. Oh, yes! God is watching out for me. Does any of this happen to other people? Yes, but in different ways because they are themselves while you are you. Therefore our journeys get personalized and we all have different wonders to tell.

DenoPenno comments on Feb 28, 2020:
Christians want you to believe that Jesus was whipped nearly to death before he had to carry a heavy cross to be crucified on. Jesus was in such bad shape that from the scourging that someone else had to carry the cross for him. (Notice that if you are a believer and have faith Jesus is carrying your cross for you. This is a bible lesson that comes later.) Also, they would break the legs of the crucified in order for them to not be able to breath on the cross or stake and they would hang there and die. Jesus did not have his legs broken and he died very quickly because "he had all the sins in the world" upon him. All of this is said in the bible because people had to have a reason why Jesus died. Before all of this nonsense Jesus so popular that he had a personal audience before Pontius Pilate. In reality this is very unlikely and they probably did not speak the same languages in the first place. If there was a crucified Jesus he was most likely crucified just like anyone else of his day and time. History says nothing about him at all.

Again, the Trumpers think that we do not need to have certain benefits and they would rejoice in "seeing liberals cry" when they are taken away.

I'm almost as frantic over this as you are but if Trump wins again it will be because the Democrats are not sure just what to do and they continue to want "business as usual." That approach will not win them this election. It did not work last election and it will not work this time either. When you talk to Democrats they say "we need to win and we need to win big." Somewhere they are just losing me. They don't get it.

I don't miss any of it even though I studied for the ministry. Some Sundays I was more into wanting to stay home and watch Bonanza on TV than got see somebody talk in tongues and wallow around on the floor. Looking back today it was just plain out simply stupid. I can't believe I fell for it all.

DenoPenno comments on Feb 24, 2020:
Very true that the victim is not the one to blame but some victims keep on making it up and hanging on to it. Take the scientist who claims the Grand Canyon was caused by the great flood. That story s not in his magic book. He simply made up a tale in order to keep believing a lie.

DenoPenno comments on Feb 23, 2020:
I stick with objective ideas because they are dealing with facts as we know them. Subjective is where you make something up and call it whatever you want it to be. "Rocky" might be just a rock but believers use this way of thinking to promote anything they like about their god.

DenoPenno comments on Feb 23, 2020:
Truth is, people have seen strange objects in the sky as long as there have been people to record the events. I believe Constantine saw some of these also. It was reported that he saw a sign of the cross and heard words saying he would conquer in that sign. Look up and squint at the sun and you might see that sign too. I have seen strange objects also. I'm not just here making fun of others. It's just that I am not sure what I have witnessed.

I saw a zigzagging light while on Army maneuvers in Germany in the 1960's. it did a similar thing and disappeared. I did not report it because our military operations involved training with flares dropping in by small parachutes. I'm sure authorities would claim it was one of these that I saw. In reality the zigzagging object would have been many miles away from us.

Donald Trump is bad for America. Let's hope others will see this and take action before Trump does this.

DenoPenno comments on Feb 23, 2020:
Hitchens, Hawkins, Harris, Dawkins, Dennett. Maybe I should have stated with Carl Sagan. Today I identify with many atheists around the world including Bertrand Russell. I remember a time that I cut my teeth on things like "Our Haunted Planet" by John A. Keel.
This feels like progress! [metro.co.uk]
DenoPenno comments on Feb 23, 2020:
Ah, yes. The teachers have a contract that should not be against Catholic moral values in any way. This is how the school is getting rid of the teachers. We must remember that just a few years ago it was believed that a person became a "gay teacher" just to be able to corrupt the students. In this case the students are reacting to events at the school very well, and this is indeed progress.
An interesting humanist view on some ancient religions
DenoPenno comments on Feb 23, 2020:
Yes, but if I am the guy behind the curtain why am I concerned with all this? Why would I care to even be involved? I can see where I am today in thought and belief as compared to when I was much younger but I have no ritual to do in order to see this or continue to follow it.

Seems like a lot of people have great concerns about assholes.
What do you think of backward ball caps on older men?
DenoPenno comments on Feb 22, 2020:
I agree with you. For the record here I do not wear hats. Several places I worked at tried to give us hats but I do not like them. A former boss who actually taught me computer in my home told a story once on coming over to teach me and there I was drunk with my hat on backwards. It's not true and I do not wear hats.
My mom's concern for me and my husband's atheism.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 22, 2020:
He drank the sinner's cup of punishment. She rants on and on. WTH is this? Your mom has a great delusion that most likely will always be with her. She thinks she is "saving" you but she will do everything she can to tear you and your husband apart. If she blames him for your atheism this is a very strong desire. Deep inside she may feel that once you are torn away from him you have no place to go but to Jesus. I would avoid confrontations with her and do not discuss beliefs with her.
Back in 2008 I started a group in my town called the paranormal society of Albuquerque. I ran it ...
DenoPenno comments on Feb 22, 2020:
Years ago I went ghost hunting with others and we drove the car to a cemetery way out in the boonies and got out to look around. Suddenly somebody seen something and cried out, then everyone ran for the car. Who knows what they saw but it was something by a tombstone. The driver flooded the car trying to start it and I was the last one inside before we drove away. Much later they told me I should admit that I saw something also because I was running too. It's true that I was running. I did not want to be left all alone in the boonies late at night with no place to go. What can you see late at night by tombstones in a cemetery? Almost anything but not very likely to be a ghost.
Has anyone any theories as to what is happening with the solar observatories? sorry unable to ...
DenoPenno comments on Feb 22, 2020:
What I find on it is that this was a sunspot observatory and it was shut down with suspected child pornography involvement from one of the employees. No arrests yet but computers, laptops, thumb drives, etc. have been removed and the same at the supposed suspect's home. There is some concern that the FBI is not telling everything, but what else would they be obligated to tell you? What else can the paranormal mind make up?
