This morning I read on the net that Trump was going to try to extend his term by two years; if he ...
DenoPenno comments on May 6, 2019:
Trump is not looking forward to all the prosecution coming his way and the rest of us need to speed that up any way that we can. Over 16 women have claims against him and everyone knows he is a crook. His supporters think we are just haters wanting to cause him trouble. New York especially does not like him, and too many think you cannot indict a sitting president. This is totally wrong!
Evangelist Declares White House To Be "Holy Ground" And Commands "Demonic Networks To Be Scattered" ...
DenoPenno comments on May 6, 2019:
The "holy ground" of the White House has been severely desecrated in recent times. This is why the "demonic networks" should be scattered. In actuality if you believe this "holy ground" nonsense then you are another one that believes we were founded on god, Jesus, and the bible. It never was true or even close to being true.
I work in retail.
DenoPenno comments on May 6, 2019:
I agree with Vivian but you could also reply with "so be it." This will go into Wiccan ideas but is also a literal translation of "amen."

DenoPenno comments on May 6, 2019:
Just last week a non-religious person at my work said that America was founded on Christian beliefs. I gave him a funny look and said that most of the Founding Fathers were Deists. Then I added that he needed to back up and do a little more studying here. It's strange that most people today take a Deist as a god believing Christian when that simply was not the case.
It's been a long time since I had some holy rollers come to my house .

DenoPenno comments on May 6, 2019:
I'm in for opinion number 2. How do we know what Muslims hate? After 911 some American guys went to a gas station and killed an Indian Sikh. This shows how ignorant hate is.
Should we respect other people's beliefs?
DenoPenno comments on May 6, 2019:
I have trouble respecting beliefs of others. As for them having a right to believe as they want to, only a fool would try to stop that idea. The world is full of religious fools. I can respect people if they respect me.
Last night I attending a pinning ceremony for RN's at a public college.
DenoPenno comments on May 3, 2019:
Your experience is exactly what I go though if I attend any events at a Senior Center in my area. This is the main reason I seldom go to these events. None of that crap is needed!
Just wondering here.
DenoPenno comments on May 3, 2019:
Christian public presence is reinforced by lies. It always has been. Constantine's mother gave him nails from the true cross of Christ. He was told to wear them in his crown or have them on his horse if he was in battle. (Jesus Christ! How many nails were there?) Later in the 1970's hitchhiker's that were picked up on the highways were know to suddenly blurt out "Jesus is returning soon" and they would simply vanish from the vehicle. This is the nature of Evangelical religion.
Just random thoughts.
DenoPenno comments on May 3, 2019:
I hear you. Just this morning on local news they report a situation of 2 people in a life threatening situation and how they were praying to be rescued at sea. Finally a ship named "Amen" picked them up and they were saved. Someone fabricated this story to fit a religious belief. I have no problem with the ship's name. My problem is that the 2 people were "praying to be rescued." I'm sure that prayer must have been high in their survivalist agenda.

DenoPenno comments on May 2, 2019:
There is a lot of truth in these videos. My studies brought me to things like this and I no longer believe. I tell family members why. Even so, I have a relative who thinks that some day the "original bible" will be found. It's strange that so many people find nothing wrong with that statement.

St. Louis-area cop indicted for shooting shoplifting suspect
DenoPenno comments on May 2, 2019:
I have wondered about this since it happened, and yes the training does need to be changed. There is never a reason to shoot a shoplifting suspect unless they have a visible weapon and appear to reach for it. Reasons to taser such a person should also exist before that is done as well. Did she provide open resistance to the officer? As for that case in Texas I'm finding media shots at trying to get the cop a fair trial that rile me a bit. They keep saying that Amber Guyger mistakenly shot and killed her neighbor. That bothers me. Neighbor my ass! She was on the wrong floor of the apartment building and claims she thought this was her apartment. Working a full shift beforehand does not excuse this sort of behavior and poor judgement and her trial will have to be a complete circus.
Do scientific and religious explanations necessarily contradict each other?
DenoPenno comments on May 2, 2019:
Of course they contradict each other. There is absolutely nothing scientific about religion. I find that religions just make shit up. Science actually tests things and if it no longer fits the model they find evidence that does fit.
2 Weeks on "Plenty Of Fish"
DenoPenno comments on May 2, 2019:
My experiences with POF is that the site gives up on me, thinks I have a fake profile or agenda, and they boot me out. This has happened twice as I go back to find I have no profile and cannot log in. My reaction is to say "Chuck You, Farley." I don't see how they have any fish?
Given that life in itself is meaningless, what do we have in mind when we talk about the "meaning ...
DenoPenno comments on May 2, 2019:
I can agree with this. Facing it differently, too many people want to turn over their meaning in life to an imaginary being. This is because they have no meaning in life or have not realized that they themselves give their life meaning. Life is what you make it. Life itself has no meaning. When you bestow meaning upon life that is when you start making things up.

Is there really any difference between Biden and his Dem supporters from Trump and the Republicans?
DenoPenno comments on May 1, 2019:
Yes there is. It starts with the Trump group not giving a goddamn if you have good reasonable healthcare or not and the Senate will not take up that issue, so say Mitch McConnell. There is more if you would like to look for it but this is enough for me.

DenoPenno comments on May 1, 2019:
Anything is possible. I knew a family where the dad was Jewish and the mom was Baptist. It worked for them. The best advice is to both be in agreement from the beginning because it helps to lesson stress.The best way to do that is to have no religion.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 30, 2019:
Everyone makes up their own rules. This is a fact. This is why some atheists believe in ghosts, aliens, and some other sort of nonsense. This is why theists have so many beliefs and denominations. I believe in logic, reason, and evidence. In my world there is nothing supernatural. Countries, states, and governments make up their own rules also. Many want this to include a blending of ideas from an invisible man.
What is with this Atheist/Agnostic divide stuff lately.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 30, 2019:
Label me how you want. My words to explain will not stop you. Recently in Atheist Experience comments I was called out because someone thought what I first said was words of a believer. I clarified the issue but I'm sure it did not change the mind of the one calling me out for it. People believe nonsense. This is why we have an idiot for POTUS today.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 29, 2019:
Many years ago I found out that relatives can be toxic to you. They lie and they often want to move in on you and mooch off you. I've had it happen. Today is different. I forbid it at all costs and I do not loan money. I do not take anybody in even for short times. Not so long ago local relatives were coming to see me and one said it took them a while to find my place. I'm in plain sight but jokingly told them I try to keep it hidden. There is no law that says you must like or be around your relatives. The more you are around them the more likely one of them will want to impose themselves upon you. Loaned money never gets paid back and I've had a 2 week stay turn into 7 months before. That was years ago. Today I live alone.
Got to hang out with some coworkers tonight and was able to blow off some steam about my ex.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 29, 2019:
Glad you got some relief as that buildup isn't good. I never blow off steam about my ex because I know that people can end up going in different directions. My views used to be important to me in that I wanted to tell others so badly how I feel. With time I have found out that others do not understand anyway because they are not sure of what you said even as you just said it! Then I look at my own views and see instantly how they are different now than just a few years ago, and often in a short time. Even so, the discourse between yourself and others is healthy and promotes well being.
Death arrangement

Funeral homes will work with you on this but they push religion. I suppose it's because they make more money that way.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 29, 2019:
I do understand this. I get along with Muslims but usually do not talk anything that would lead to common ground. I would have answered her question about morality though because morality is not universal and some areas have slightly different morality beliefs. This would seem to leave the invisible man totally out of the picture. In so many religions the big failing is to add a god into a mix where none is needed.

I have a buddy I was in Vietnam with.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 28, 2019:
I agree totally. My ex wife is from Kenya and in my own situation I was semi racist as a young man. My time in the Army and in Europe taught me a lot and I changed over the years, hence the 12 year marriage to my ex. I'm now 72. In conversations with a neighbor we are talking and black people come up. This guy tells me "we sent them all to college and then they do this or do that." Wait! Who are the "we" that sent them to college? Who are "they" that did this or that? Most black people are more educated than many whites are, and you can see this man's racism a mile away. Many blacks work hard to go to college. I'm learning to avoid people like that certain neighbor and I meet many like him every day in mid Missouri.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 28, 2019:
The rise of the Internet was the beginning of the death of religion as we know it. When I was a child we all believed the minister and would ask him the god questions but often we had to wait for a week to do so. Today you can find the answer in a few minutes online. If you are honest with yourself you can also see that nothing backs up the validity of the bible. Many things in the book are made up and outright lies.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 28, 2019:
I hear ya. I drive and deliver auto parts for a living and one small town I'm in has a unique sort of "church." The building is like an office suite and it reads "NHIM." It seems the basic idea is that everything is about Jesus and are you NHIM? I've heard this idea before and ones that go for it say Jesus is all that matters. How thoughtfully ignorant of them. Writings we have about the man were written long after his time and not written by those whose names are on the books. The names are just to give the writing some authority.

As for suicide there are probably many reasons to do it, but so far I have not been confronted with any that make sense to me.
The Power of Prayer
DenoPenno comments on Apr 26, 2019:
This would be a good place for those who think they can pray somebody back to life to practice. We would not need to do this if we had Elisha's bones today. According to the OT somebody was thrown into a grave that had Elisha's bones in it and they came back to life. Those who believe every word of their Buybull most likely have for gotten this.

This was no problem in 1915 but is a great big problem today. I view people as people and not according to color. Many people try to tell me "how black people are." They are totally wrong. Differences do not come along because of skin color. None of this makes the brain different. In my Kenyan ex I saw differences that would be tribal but nothing related to skin color or race. Most of us can see this same thing in the Irish and others as well.
Hello everyone.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 26, 2019:
Marrying a Muslim has certain risks and today it would be similar to when a Baptist married a Catholic several years ago. The main problem from your point of view would be that you both marry and get along and you feel that she is giving up some of her belief for yours. This probably is not happening. What if she felt the same way about you? This is where your basic ideas will clash.

Vaccinations should never be mandatory but everyone should know the consequences of not being vaccinated.

Another cartoon about the Notre Dame Cathedral and the American Constitution under Trump.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 25, 2019:
Certainly Trump has wrecked the office. A man I know says the way to handle illegals crossing our borders is to shoot them dead as they cross and let the bodies lay where they fall. He is OK with it because he thinks Trump would be OK with it. Then in Arizona we had a self appointed vigilante group rounding up illegals. It recently came out that the leader had plans of killing Hillary and Obama. The Orange Turd endorses this sort of crap by not addressing it at all so he will appeal to his base. Then his supporters in government want to surround him and protect him at all costs because they enjoy being in power. Donald Trump should have been removed way before anything went this far. It's appalling how so many claim you cannot remove a sitting president. This is all a mockery of law and our Constitution.

The ‘Guccifer 2.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 19, 2019:
You may have some very fine points here that are totally true. I'm still concerned about a remark made by Trump Jr. early on about money when he said the family did not need money because they got all they needed from Russia. I'm taking Trump Jr. at his word on this and he most likely knows where the money is coming from. Follow this on into talks of a Trump Tower in Moscow that went on into 2016 and Trump's election and I see a problem. You and I can do this but not POTUS. You and I can borrow from or be in business with Russia in many ways, but not POTUS. Donnie did not care about the Constitution, of course. He is reluctant to release tax returns because his true wealth and ventures would be revealed. Not only would Russian ties come out but the true nature of Trump money structure set up by Fred Trump might be challenged. Not only would this cause lawsuits from the present and on into Trump's death, it would hound the family the same way forever. The problem is that was ignore this and go on as if nothing is happening. Trump is soft on Russia and maybe we know why. If any of the above was involvements of Bush or Obama their presidencies would not stand and all would be un-done.

We live in a world of "monkey see-monkey do." If people are not doing things just for that reason, they end up doing things for "like and views" which often can make them money. I read recently of the college student who fell 100 feet to her death in Arkansas. Yes, it is an accident but it is also total ignorance. Then I read of the teen female suicide who was a point of interest to the FBI because she was obsessed with the shooting at Columbine that happened 2 years before she was born. People are insane!

What are we exposing him for when he opened admitted that he was gay?
For once, a church sign that I think we all can agree on...

DenoPenno comments on Apr 18, 2019:
I totally agree. Another thing that is off the wall on these beliefs are those who hold an "either/or" view on god. Many times people call in to the Atheist Experience and try to disprove evolution. They appear to think that if they can do this it has to mean "god did it" and that creation is real. It means nothing of the kind. Which god and which creation?
I started collecting memes on Trump thinking "I'll run out of these."

When he is gone I will be totally satisfied.
My path to atheism definitely took awhile.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 17, 2019:
I credit bible study and even other so called sacred writings as helping me see that it's just not true. It doesn't matte which holy book you use, it's all just not true.
Nothing fascinates me more than people who use the word "version" after Bible (a.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 17, 2019:
I remember the "red letter editions" that supposedly had the words of Jesus printed in red. This is really a silly idea, but to Evangelicals it might fit because of "all that blood" that he shed. Jesus just would not stop bleeding and he shed his blood for us all. I think he bled to death.
Good morning! Today is a weird and sad day for me, but it's getting a little easier as the years go...
DenoPenno comments on Apr 16, 2019:
It is always hard to deal with. Death is the hardest separation for us because there is no answer or no going forward with that relationship. All we have left are the pleasant memories.

Looks to me like they might be killing an innocent man. Often they go on with this sort of thing because they have him in custody and he is black and the family needs "closure." Once he is dead more families will need "closure."
Notre Dame in Paris is burning!!! We do not believe in god but we love art.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 16, 2019:
It was indeed a sad day. If I am not mistaken I think I heard that one loss was the original crown of thorns that Jesus wore. I'm wondering how they ever found that item in the first place. Maybe it was kept with the wood slivers that were pieces of the original cross.
