Sex appeal in workplace?
DenoPenno comments on Nov 2, 2019:
Both sexes do it and we shouldn't. The excuse is that we want to be attractive but "modestly" so.
Because most dogs are smart.

When did the "Post" button become red?

I noticed it just now at 8:16 PM and I see the plus on it as meaning to post more.
“Religious refusals” are leaving rural patients without health care options - Vox
DenoPenno comments on Nov 2, 2019:
There are many things I do not understand here also, but the main thing I noticed was that the hospital was Catholic. That means this was just about what you could expect. Go to another hospital even if you have to travel a little to get there.
Deadspin Employees Quit

I have also never heard of them. Walking off your job may send a powerful message but the one it sends to me is "no paycheck." I don't like living with other people too much.

DenoPenno comments on Nov 2, 2019:
If I support my 3rd party it means I vote Libertarian. This means I vote for exactly what Charles Koch and others want at this very time. Years ago the Libertarians were wanting to be known as Radical Republicans. Tactfully thy changed their name. Today they are the Radical Republicans that we have under Trump. Vote blue. Vote green New Deal. This is not the socialism of years ago in the same way that Trump is not an Eisenhower Republican. Wake up to the fact that those in power have no concern for EPA standards of any kind and also do not give a damn about you, your wages, healthcare, food, water, etc. Voting 3rd party is not an option. If you vote 3rd party it distracts from those who oppose Trump and Trump wins. IF Hillary shows back up at last minute to run as 3rd party ( I hear she is thinking about it) all she does is guarantee that Trump wins. It is time to Dump Trump.

DenoPenno comments on Nov 2, 2019:
Yes, god is not speaking to anyone but my long time religious friend is my age and claims he talks to god every day. Recently he claimed god healed his dog but also told me the dog was operated on by the vet. Typical religious jargon. I hope that you and your daughter are still getting along nicely regardless of not going to church any longer. This is the important thing.
‪Trump changed his residency to fl so he can win the tax release lawsuit ny has on him.
DenoPenno comments on Nov 2, 2019:
I agree with you but this will not make lawsuits in NY go away. The best it can do is make a judge declare that NY has no reason to pursue or view certain items. What about everything up until Trump decided to move to Florida? We have a new slant here but it does not nix a lawsuit. My advice to Trump is that they need a non-disclosure agreement and this should be done in fake names.

**Wrong**. As a believing Christian I used to believe in everything. Today that is not so. I have to have evidence for what I believe.
What is a non-religious ritual you commit to?
DenoPenno comments on Nov 1, 2019:
Ritualistic. It's the daily repetitions that we all go through along with other relaxing things that I want to do. Earlier in life I was very physical. Today I am a computer nerd. This is what I do in spare time.
A serious topic that has to be intelligently understood.
DenoPenno comments on Nov 1, 2019:
Oh, it is Catholic and somebody got healed so it must be real. Now lets send that god to St. Jude where he can do lots of good, OR we can search for Elisha's bones which are capable of bringing people back to life. Sorry. I did not care to watch the video.
What's the symbol of atheism
DenoPenno comments on Nov 1, 2019:
It is NOT drawing a fish in the sand with a big stick. People that so that want to get to Pieces and are making up some Jesus myth. :)
I'm agnostic & somewhat spiritual but that doesn't necessarily mean I want to talk about it.

DenoPenno comments on Nov 1, 2019:
I am sorry for your loss. Hope you like it here. Most of us are OK but being agnostic or atheist has no guidelines. BTW, there is truth and also human opinion. I find that truth is always changing scientifically and that also changes human opinions.
As an Agnostic I am always interested when the sciemce takes a serious look at a spiritual topic.
DenoPenno comments on Oct 31, 2019:
It could be in the realm of my religious friend's belief. He told me recently that his elderly dog had cancer. The vet operated and then they prayed for the dog later. She is doing OK now. I almost asked him if his god would do anything for the children at St. Jude.
The TLDR of my life on the religon spectrum.

I was wondering about revenge porn... does it have to be malicious?
DenoPenno comments on Oct 30, 2019:
I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "revenge porn." Revenge for what? I can tell you one thing however. **River Rick** covered this subject fully in his reply. This is just how it is. I quote again: **I am not sure of the criminality of what you describe but everyone MUST start thinking... When a picture leaves your phone or PC... The world owns it and you no longer have control. That's just a fact! **

The agnostic crowd is much more intelligent than the rest!! Sorry, but it is the truth.
DenoPenno comments on Oct 30, 2019:
Just because people do not believe in gods does not mean they cannot believe in all sorts of other woo. I used to believe it all. Today I believe in nothing supernatural.

DenoPenno comments on Oct 30, 2019:
I have no idea if there was a "big bang" or not. If so, did it have to make noise and what started at that very moment? All I know for sure is that we cannot conceive of "nothing." It is impossible for us to see that everything came out of nothing. This means that there was always something and us and our universe came out of that something.

When we start talking about objects too big or heavy to ever be lifted or moved, etc. I think it is time for me to leave the room. I only got into that bullshit when I was a believer.
I had an interesting conversation today.
DenoPenno comments on Oct 29, 2019:
She is using an old trick to try and get you back to god and religion again. She thinks if things happen for a reason and you get your wishes you are blessed by the invisible man. When things fall in line for you it proves it and you just have to go with god, but that's not how it works at all. I'm "blessed" and the "god" helping me is myself. This is so because I keep what I am looking for in my mind somewhere and soon I find it. This is so if it is new or in a resale shop. It happened to me today and I found what I was looking for because I gave it all my attention. I found it in 2 days. Also, things DO happen for a reason. The reason might be just like I have said above. If you stumble you might fall so you have to be careful how and where you walk. No invisible being is guiding you in any of this. It is just you yourself. You create your purpose in life and you create your reason.

DenoPenno comments on Oct 29, 2019:
I am trying to figure out why there is a believer in this site trying to preach to us. Maybe he thinks we are just angry with god. I don't go that route but your god should be held fully accountable for the Holocaust. I'm all in for that.

No gods/no kings?
DenoPenno comments on Oct 28, 2019:
Religion has a common link in that it is used by government to get you to be a good boy and pay your taxes. Charles Koch is aware of this and that is why he bought the current GOP and the push is for only the little guy to pay taxes. Charlie wants to keep his.

DenoPenno comments on Oct 28, 2019:
IF they are Evangelical there will come a time that they become concerned about your imaginary soul burning forever in some imaginary place that they almost cry because you refuse to "wake up" and give your life to a dead zombie so you can live forever in the sky with an imaginary god.

I have asked on social media, did God know Adam and Eve were going to sin when he created them.
DenoPenno comments on Oct 27, 2019:
Adam and Eve had the free will to sin - or not. God had the free will to create them - or not. I still want to know what was the name of the first chicken, or maybe the first disease germ.

Beware of the term "lacks belief" because there are so many out there that think you are saying you have no knowledge of their god and they would love to tell you about him. They think they will give you belief. Of course, you have to "have faith." LOL

DenoPenno comments on Oct 26, 2019:
Thanks for your service. I served 3 years active in the Army. Missouri is a lot like Arkansas in this belief stuff. I find that those who are the strongest believers word wise are also the same people that "believe in their own way." It's not smart to claim you are not one of them unless someone else came out to you first. That doesn't stop me from running them off when churches come to my door.

DenoPenno comments on Oct 26, 2019:
According to limited data on the now defunct Cambridge Analytica a great many of us have been hacked in various ways to support something that is not true. They say CA is gone now but the data is still somewhere. Many in Quora Digest believe that their name and info is and can be used to gain support for false ideas. I am inclined to believe it. When were we hacked? We do not know. A small example of this is that I view a website on my computer and later Facebook shows me this website again.

Stephen Hawking famously said that "Philosophy is dead." What do you think?
DenoPenno comments on Oct 25, 2019:
Philosophy might mean something but I'm tired of modern people telling me that ancients suggested we might be a brain in a vat, or that we are actually living in a matrix. This is a totally ignorant response to suggest support for your ideas today. Sounds to me like these ideas came out of a society that had computers and virtual reality with movies that popularized the whole idea.
Timeline is solidifying! Will Donald Trump Be Impeached?
DenoPenno comments on Oct 25, 2019:
Trump was recently on Hannity's program to claim his Ukraine phone call is actually a letter, and it is a perfect letter. What he means is the transcript of that call and how they tried to hide it. Of course, that is not how it comes across on the program. Why would people want to impeach you over a letter? As for his supporters they come back at me with that Ukrainian phone call being "you mean what Joe Biden done?" Someone here is insane or else they all love Reality America starring Donald Dump.
I Can Handle The Toddler!
DenoPenno comments on Oct 25, 2019:
The fact that some people want to start another civil war over all this is mind boggling. Trumps new attorney argued recently that a sitting president cannot be charged with any crimes at all. This type of ignorance is totally insane.
Wasting my time.
DenoPenno comments on Oct 25, 2019:
No they do not. They look at facts as "fake facts" and "fake news." This is exactly what Donnie wanted. One Hispanic relative of mine is so ate up with Trump that she recently posted to me that jobs matter and to look at the jobs. My reply to her was if you had 2 jobs maybe you could make a living. I'm also not a believer in ideas that your president creates jobs. Maybe I should have been Hispanic. She claims that they are the fastest rising group for Trump and their jobs are great with good money and they can now more easily buy a home. This is the biggest bunch of horseshit that I have ever heard, and Donnie did it all in 1000 days!

DenoPenno comments on Oct 25, 2019:

Such is the world of Charles Koch and others including Putin.

DenoPenno comments on Oct 23, 2019:
Being a JW is a cult in the same sense that Evangelical Christianity is a cult. There is great similarity. The big difference is that Evangelicals condemn the JW's because of "no soul belief." The idea of this scares them to death and both groups can "dis-fellowship" you for any number of reasons.
SHOULD AGNOSTICS & ATHEISTS CELEBRATE HALLOWEEN?
DenoPenno comments on Oct 22, 2019:
It depends on what you mean by "celebrate." I personally do not believe that on this one night all the souls or demons come out and I do not leave them food to pacify them with in hopes they will leave me alone. As the only one in my household today I do not pass out candy to children who come to my door. It was fun when I was young but today I am an "A-Halloweenist." Those with families and children are free to think differently. I do not want to get together a guidebook on what atheists should or should not do. Once you do that you will end up with rules and having meetings and "we believe" lists hanging on walls somewhere.
Are Atheists racist
DenoPenno comments on Oct 22, 2019:
The two do not go together but not believing in gods does not guarantee that you cannot be a racist. "Atheist" simply means "without god." That's all it is in basic.
One of the posts I read indicated that being an atheist or an agnostic is a choice we make.
DenoPenno comments on Oct 21, 2019:
You can look at it either way. As a one time believer I was tortured mentally for not following what I believed and it was driving me nuts. Logic and reasoning set in after I heard Jerry DeWitt talk of his experiences on You Tube. Jerry was one of the first graduates of the Clergy Project. It was easy for me to identify with him in this and I felt as if my eyes were opened for the first time. My guilt was gone, fear was all gone, and it all made so much sense. There are no gods. Bare in mind that along with belief in gods everything supernatural went right out the window as well. If you believe in anything supernatural it is because you do not understand it. Logic and demonstrable evidence is the only way to go.
Why so many posts about God?
DenoPenno comments on Oct 21, 2019:
I no longer believe in the invisible man in the sky either but I am finding out that everyone has a different story about it. I stopped believing when Jesus didn't bring me a pony one year. It was Christmas and I asked him about that. He knew I was angry but he told me it was his birthday and not mine.

DenoPenno comments on Oct 21, 2019:
I saw a video on this. Very good.

DenoPenno comments on Oct 20, 2019:
AOC is exactly correct. When she talks of working without healthcare and less than a living wage and also believing that is just how things are and how they are supposed to be, this is how the powers that be want you to feel. Charles Koch and friends with the top 1 percent want all you can give them and to get it you have to have much less. The big job is done through distraction and disinformation, creating bias and racial discord so the oppressed feel they are missing out on something. Trump and others like him convince you of this when they are the very swamp that needs draining. It now appears that the entire Trump message is to convince you of how everyone before him was corrupt and he alone is restoring government. Trump is a liar and a conman.

DenoPenno comments on Oct 20, 2019:
I haven't dated in quite some time. I'm shattered. This has as much to do with me as it does with women in general or my ex in particular. I have a lonely existence except for doing the things I always done and enjoyed as a much younger man. I hate no one and have no bad feelings. At the same time I have no delusions. I am so tired of being surrounded with drama, drama, drama. Discussion is medicine for the soul because it is sharing. The pace today for relationships is media driven and too much like Reality TV.
So yesterday my sons mom asked me If I became an atheist so I can do bad things (lol!).
DenoPenno comments on Oct 20, 2019:
Religious people do not think. I've heard them say that we non-believers are probably off somewhere taking logic and reasoning classes. Then they laugh. They think they have the answers because we admit that we do not have, and their book told them that they do.

One such time was today at the hardware store (I know these people) where I mentioned a few of our countries ills. They agreed with my** every word** and said the answer is Donald Trump. My mind is screaming out "no" cause Trump is the idiot that caused this crap. You can never get them to agree on that one. He's the American savior.

I do not see a third party candidate as throwing 2020 towards Trump and friends. My view is it would do the opposite. Note that the GOP is not doing any primaries. I must admit that both parties are not so keen on a third party running at this time. Dems want to keep away from extremes but they appear to have a great need of organization.

In my lifetime it has always been to modify the story. As much as I hate that idea when it comes to religion we do that ourselves as we review our lives and what meaning they have. Humans are always modifying their story but if you are religious you simply make things up. I can look back on things I used to believe even just a short time ago that I do not believe today. How do I justify? Ignorance and stupidity because we are always learning whether we like it or not. If you are religious you just put that in god's plan.

A religion is a cult because it has followers.
True just distorted by evangelicals who want a religious state their religion

Thanks for this. I copied it and will pass it around.
Sssssooooo, if god was/is/use to be without form and void, to the point that there was nothing ...
DenoPenno comments on Oct 19, 2019:
In the bibble it was the earth that was without form and void when god created it. The idea that this same god is "without form and void" is some modern apologist nonsense to help believers protect their feeble and vulnerable god. Apparently he is now in another dimension. Nobody have ever seen him and if they claimed otherwise they were lying.

“We the People,” which clearly enunciates that the basis of power is the people, not some supernatural power. Nice and true conclusion.
Would you as an agnostic or atheist marry a Christian?
DenoPenno comments on Oct 18, 2019:
My ex was such a woman and I was a borderline believer when we married. During the marriage and during our "church going days" counciling helped us sometimes. By the time we split up I was a non-believer and she admitted she could see what I was talking about but remained a believer herself. Counciling does not always go in favor of your marriage however. It did in our case. Marrying a believer is not a problem** IF** they do not go to an Evangelical group. If they do, this can turn on you as the other one cries and pleads for you to accept an invisible man who can prevent an invisible part of you from burning in an imaginary place forever, and this happening after you die. In this last senario you will have no peace and be hounded forever until you give in or both of you are driven apart. Good luck.
On the menu today...
DenoPenno comments on Oct 18, 2019:
Why an increase in the youth suicide rate? Is it because life is all about selling you something and this is how we determine your worth and value. Maybe we should throw in the ridiculous beliefs of religion that really do not help you in any way. Is it a mystery as to why people do not attend church? Years ago Charles Fort came up with ideas like"the earth is a farm and we are the crop." It implied an extraterrestrial origin but imagine that you have figured this out today and such activity comes from right here on earth. We are now the product.
If there is a god than he has watched every act of child molestation that has ever happened and not ...

The mysterious way in which god works is that he does not work. Believers simply make crap up.
