Great. Hemant is there and I see Tracie Harris has re-emerged since leaving the Atheist Experience. She is talented and has such a good logical mind. I'm glad she is still involved in atheism and freethought.

DenoPenno comments on Sep 22, 2019:
You are correct. The ones having the worst time at funerals does appear to be the believers.
this "new" christianity is rather offensive
DenoPenno comments on Sep 22, 2019:
I agree. This is a result of wanting to remain on top while oligarchy vs. democracy progresses. This new Christianity is modeled after "The Family" in DC circles. They run on the idea that Jesus was sent for and to the ones in power. They are "the chosen." It's the same old story or pie in the sky by and by but they say you can have it right now. Just give us your money.
If all religion ended tomorrow, what do you think would happen to all the churches,etc.?

What is your main method of research that leads you to change beliefs on a topic?
DenoPenno comments on Sep 22, 2019:
I use all those methods and also check the source of blogs and sites on the Net that have come up recently with opposite opinions. Maybe the site itself is new or took on new ideas to support Donald Dump. That does not make it accurate. Fact check everything that you can. If you cannot do that and follow a link it might be wrong. Media does not become "fake" just because Donald said so. Currently his supporters are using false pictures and false ideas to claim the Dems are lying about him. There is even some ridiculous idea that Trump and his GOP have a plan that would eliminate being on the street and homeless but the mean old Dems will not let it go through Congress. Just imagine. If that crap was true every Republican would be on talk shows with it and it would be all over Fox News. Being a "non-fact" does not stop Trumpers from believing it and posting about it.
Why I Am Not a Christian by Bertrand Russell - YouTube
DenoPenno comments on Sep 21, 2019:
These days I agree with Bertrand Russell. As a young teen I certainly did not. My young teen years involved having the made up knowledge of the many believers who still argue about dogma to this very day. I finally grew up later in life just when the fearful think I should beg for mercy from a waring tribal god. Nevermore, saith me.

I'm flying out on a one week business trip to the Netherlands.
DenoPenno comments on Sep 21, 2019:
I've never been an expat but the military changed me. I was stationed in Germany and traveled Europe some, later going to Africa as a civilian in 2004. It's my honest opinion that if I had never had this experience I might have ended up just like most of Trump's support base right now. Most in my area who cannot understand why I am for diversity and the betterment of all have not even left the US in their lifetime. People need to understand that we are all together as one and that government by fear does not work.

DO YOU THINK DISORGANIZED (NEW AGE) RELIGION IS AS BAD AS ORGANIZED RELIGION?
DenoPenno comments on Sep 20, 2019:
I certainly agree. As a younger man I studied all kinds of nonsense that was a part of the supernatural. Today I see it all for what it is. It is all "woo." There comes a time in your life that you have to openly admit that "you do not know." If this is not done you just keep on making things up to attract others.
The Christian Right Is Helping Drive Liberals Away From Religion | FiveThirtyEight
DenoPenno comments on Sep 20, 2019:
I'm not surprised but I do wonder about the future of all this. What happens when the Trumpers calling you "soy boy" finally realize there is no god? Do we then have 2 groups of non-believers that still disagree.

"Pimping out my life story."
DenoPenno comments on Sep 18, 2019:
When you pimp something are you selling it? I've always imagined the word as referring to a man who takes money from street women for protection. I'm also aware of wanting my ex-wife to cut my hair and she asked "how much are you going to pay me?"

That was my opinion of him when he first ran for office. Trump will baffle you with bullshit but when you claim this is what he is doing his supporters say you are full of anger and hate. I thought it was only a difference of opinion.
The last few years of my religious life were pretty good years.
DenoPenno comments on Sep 17, 2019:
Bible writings are all static. It means they can only take on new meaning in a modern era by having apologists tell you what it was all about. They want you to think that your god is whispering in every ear and laying ideas and a burden upon the heart, but in the end this is no more than a news analyst telling you what you just read or just heard. It is mere suggestion.

Charles Koch Is Funding a Campaign to Kill Food Stamps and Medicaid
DenoPenno comments on Sep 16, 2019:
I hear that Charles misses his brother and wants to go visit him soon. The irony of those wanting to kill Medicare and Food Stamps is beyond belief. What do you do with grandma in the nursing home? If you take care of her yourself it's a full time job and you are not making enough money to make ends meet. Then we have those pesky Food Stamps. Who knew that our real problem was that family in front of you in the grocery line? People like Charles set around and dream of ways to have more of your money but these bad ideas are not very valid.

DenoPenno comments on Sep 13, 2019:
I agree with your words totally. In defense of these Christians they believe that you cannot do yourself in or hurry up the process. Killing yourself is forbidden, and many today imagine they will end up as the small sparks surrounding god's big spark. That does not sound exciting. As for being in heaven with loved ones and reunited, this used to be preached as a big heavenly reunion. It all makes you think that deep down they do not believe this at all. It's just a big club that they belong to and not anything that is real.

Why Invent the Jesus? • Richard Carrier Ph.D. - YouTube
DenoPenno comments on Sep 12, 2019:
The Jews expected the coming of a physical ruler who would be Messiah. There were lots of contenders for this title. Jesus was one of them. Once he was killed there was lots of changing around to explain all of this. At that time Jesus became a magic man concerned about parts of your being that there is no proof of at all, and his kingdom was within you. Along came Paul who took this along other directions until we have the Jesus of today. It's all a myth.

DenoPenno comments on Sep 11, 2019:
Please understand that it is her "job" to convert you. Even in Paul's writings it is claimed that a believer might bring a non-believer to Christ. Most sensible believers are OK, but there comes a time with Evangelicals that they will even cry because an invisible unknown and un-located part of you might burn forever in an unknown place after you die. It only makes sense to a Christian or an ex-Christian. Some unions do work. I knew of a Jewish man who married a Baptist woman and they had 3 kids. This was managed by avoiding religious discussion.

Dear English; Why does christian have to be capitalized and atheist doesn't? Naughty, naughty!
DenoPenno comments on Sep 11, 2019:
The word "Christ" is **not** a name of Jesus and it simply means "the anointed one" or "chosen one." I used to crack up every time I saw that big rig with writing on it saying "Jesus Christ is his name and not a swear word." That trucker was really wrong. As a title and similarity to a name I suppose this is why Christian is always capitalized. The meaning would have been lost to Jesus and his followers because back in that day "christian" was not associated with Jesus.

A history of the Bible: who wrote it and when? [historyextra.com]
DenoPenno comments on Sep 11, 2019:
Lots of people over a very long timeframe. The bible is made up of many smaller books that were never designed to be put together as one big book. People decided on which books would or would not be a part of the whole, and we have more than one version of the bible. The book of Revelation was almost left out of this monstrosity as well. The above is why there are so many contradictions in your bible and keep in mind that this all happened some 300 years after Jesus.

DenoPenno comments on Sep 11, 2019:
Mostly Bible belt USA in my opinion. Keep in mind an old Merle Haggard song in which the mother is praying for her son's crops to fail. In other words, if you are not right with god your parents will pray anything for god to stop you and this includes taking away your livelihood. It's a bad take on the plagues of Egypt. Over time the parents will note whether you date women and how much it appears you pray. If you are not begging to say grace over the meal you might be called on it. Then you have to "come out" as the saying goes. People even today live this crap daily.

DenoPenno comments on Sep 11, 2019:
I understand. In my church days I recall a sermon where it was preached that "you are nobody until god calls your name." People were blubbering and crying like babies, throwing their hands up in the air, etc. It was near pandemonium. Afterwards people would give accounts of god calling their name. At a much later time I am at an apartment complex working on my car. As I lay under the car I think I hear someone calling my name. People who heard me talk of this later said it might be god. OK. How many people have my name and why did god wait til I was laying underneath my car at an apartment complex? Yeah, that all made perfect sense. Should I start crying and hold my hands up in the air?
Just a couple of thoughts heading into 9/11.
DenoPenno comments on Sep 11, 2019:
I am very well aware that a lot of people lost their lives on 9/11 - some directly and others indirectly and possibly at a later time and all connected to the tragedy of 9/11. My heart is with you and I bleed for you because of this. Still, I'm tired of a yearly "we will never forget" that tries to build us into a frenzy for some reason. 9/11 is molded into some patriotic mold that cannot be right for everyone. I do not want to remember the death of past wives every year as their death day comes up. I'm also not wanting to remember the murder of my grandson on a yearly basis. Of course, you will never forget. Pain is not fun. It's just that I refuse to be browbeat with events as others want to turn them into a forever monument.

I may try this but I think it is Facebook's way of trying to get more on you. My user name there is the same as here and I do know some people from all over. FB seems really confused as they show me pics of those whom I might know. I like that because I'm a bit of a political activist. I really do not care about "likes" or sharing on a dare or otherwise. I'm also sick of all the damned stuff about religion from everyone and also my family members. The funniest thing about this user name and Facebook is that a few of the Trump supporters always get into telling me that most likely I did vote illegally and they even question my citizenship. Jesus Christ! I bet their Orange God is really happy and proud of them. I was born in St. Louis, Missouri and I did 3 years active in the Army.

Otherwise, not so much.

How would you reply to a theist who says, "You send yourself to hell"?
DenoPenno comments on Sep 9, 2019:
The flawed reasoning behind the "send yourself" answer is that you are sending yourself because of your disobedience. Apparently a biblical command not to mix fabric does not apply here because of cherry picking, but not doing a stern thing that god said is the problem. In the garden god said "do not eat of" and they did eat. Oops! That did it. You're done! Believers all know that a loving god would not send you to hell so they have to invent some way that you did it. Remember that god created mankind with a flaw and wanted to blame them for it from the beginning. All god had to do was change his rules. To make us reliant on him from the start he clung to his perfect plan of getting us all here through incest. This plan was used a second time after Noah's flood. Such is the wisdom of god that we really do need him in order to be clean and pure. This is why he got that teen girl pregnant and sent us Jesus. Try that one on them and if they say it sounds crazy tell them it sounds that way to you also.

I've been here about a year and a half. I get attacked sometimes because others do not understand what I am saying, but these things can be worked out in discussion.

Today is my birthday.
DenoPenno comments on Sep 8, 2019:
Happy birthday.
WTF?
DenoPenno comments on Sep 8, 2019:
Yes, this is painful. It sounds like the UK is going through as much nonsense as we are here. Apparently there is some connection between Brexit, Cambridge Anylitica, and the UK Trump lookalike. Who would have guessed?
What Are Your Thoughts About Spiritualism ?
DenoPenno comments on Sep 8, 2019:
Indeed it is all bullshit. Done in the dark so as to better fool you and just another brand of supernaturalism. In earlier life I studied these things. Today I believe in nothing supernatural. No spirits, no gods.

Again at my daughter's place. The Sangria drink is a non-alcohol beverage from Mexico. I get them at Save A lot or Dollar Tree.
