The biggest Witch Hunt really was.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 30, 2018:
My take on the birther thing is that Trump may have had help from the Kock brothers and friends as they all thought they had trouble with Obama and regulations. Trump lied about not really wanting to run for president. He had his MAGA hat slogan registered before Obama's first term ended. Trump was not their first choice but he finally got his wish. They pulled the strings and he won.
So it appears the true snowflakes are all up in arms over the roast portion of the coorespondants ...
DenoPenno comments on Apr 30, 2018:
All those offended at this event are just like Trump. They can dish it out but they cannot take it. Hypocrites of the first order. John Wayne was at a roast once when they brought out that he wore a wig and it wasn't his real hair. He dealt with it remarkably well and also with humor. There is no truth or humor in friends of the Kock brothers.
Why is it that people who were not religious before so often "get religion" and start going to ...
DenoPenno comments on Apr 30, 2018:
Fear and the "just in case" type thing. I once read that Walter Brennan wanted to check into religion a little further because "he wasn't getting any younger." That explains a lot for me. Pregnant women might often think they have to get serious now because they are bringing another child into the world and they have to raise it right. OK. What does that have to do with gods or religion?
The National Correspondent's Dinner was very disappointing for me.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 30, 2018:
Michelle Wolfe made you feel uncomfortable. Oh, I am sooo sorry for you. You poor baby. Why don't we have a person stand up there at the dinner and roast Donald Trump using his own verifiable words complete with lies and contradictions and we can see how that one goes over. If he was a man, and a popular one, I'll bet it would be OK.
SEXUAL DIMORPHISM: Are we biological creatures?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 29, 2018:
I think we are much alike as very young children and learned differences come about at a very young age. For example, both girls and boys play with dolls. Parents teach them that girls have a Barbie while boys have a G.I. Joe. Outside of our biology everything goes along something like that.
"n one of the largest depression-related differences between the sexes, women have about twice the ...
DenoPenno comments on Apr 29, 2018:
I can see this. As a male with depression (and no meds for it) I have long got used to logic as a way of looking at everything. It makes a person less tuned in to their emotions. I can describe myself easily as "a watcher" of things and events. I tend to observe things rather than to interact with them. I'm sure this was a factor that helped lead to my last divorce.
What's your opinion of assisted suicide?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 29, 2018:
I'm not sure I could do it myself, so I would need some assistance. But wait! If I had help it might be called murder. How about a small self operated gas chamber?
Do You know there are actual eyewitness, historically accepted and verified testimonies for the ...
DenoPenno comments on Apr 29, 2018:
He was made up years later and fitted into the actual history of the time. This is partly why there are scriptures that are said to apply to him and have nothing to do with him at all. This is also why there are 2 completely different genealogies given for Jesus and some preachers try to explain it away by saying one is also tracing him through Mary. Sorry. The Jews would never ever do that. It's all made up. They try desperately to get Jesus to fit in as Messiah and they miss the mark. Since the Messiah was an earthly king and leader the next hurdle would be to explain just why he was killed and came back as zombie Jesus. Was the entire thing to convince the Jews not to fight Rome because they had already killed their Messiah? The best I can tell you is that certain Gospels were written after 70 AD and the big battle that happened then.
God is nothing but a brand and religion is a business...
DenoPenno comments on Apr 29, 2018:
A tax exempt one at that.
Do we need religion to prevent suicide?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 29, 2018:
**Religion created to also prevent people from killing themselves for fear of going to hell?** If no religion was created you would have no knowledge of hell.
Appropriating from scripture.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 29, 2018:
I have no favorite scriptures any longer. That's because I am no longer a believer. But, let's just take from a scripture a moment. Jesus says: "There shall be wars and rumors of wars." DUH! Is this supposed to be profound or something?
Do you feel a division happening in this country?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 28, 2018:
We have a big division coming that is driven by hatred and a false sense of everything. The basic idea seems to be keep us divided while they steal us blind. If you happen to support the thieves they will make sure you believe it was done by others and not them. When you take away what we have all gained in the last 75 years and this is all about big business making more money, you are not my friend.
How do people describe you?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 28, 2018:
I'm not sure. I'm never around when they talk about me.

Who cares? It's just stuff!
DenoPenno comments on Apr 28, 2018:
We all have stuff. I like to have 2 of everything. Most of my stuff is not new. I can't afford new in almost any of it. I don't like to trade my stuff but I could do that. Most of it is from yard sales and resale shops. Out of 3 computers only one of them is new. When I want to get rid of stuff I take it to some of these same shops I buy stuff from. They sell it to somebody else and the money made on all this goes to help poor people. My latest example of stuff is that I needed a digital alarm clock for the spare bedroom. You can get a new one at Dollar General for $8 but I got a used one at resale for $3 and saved myself $5 bucks.

Has anyone asked you to challenge their beliefs?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 28, 2018:
No one has asked me to challenge their beliefs but I believe that in time my words might be remembered and could challenge them. I don't debate. Trying to explain a sunset or why someone survived a car crash has nothing to do with a god. On the other hand, if you believe that your prophet flew to heaven on a winged horse I feel sorry for you. Equally so if you think a god dictated to Moses (or somebody) exactly how everything began and it was put in a book.
10 Outrageous Conspiracy Theories Believed by the Far Right Wing [youtube.com]
DenoPenno comments on Apr 28, 2018:
I find things like this absolutely amazing. The birther claim alone was a tactic that would be picked up by racists easily and used to avoid liberal ideas of Obama. Big business pays more money when tighter regulations are in force. We see that battle going on yet today. The idea of "crisis actors" is far fetched because there just would not be enough money to pay all of them for the crowd size they have had. (Anything to protect those guns.) Right in there with it I have seen video of those who claim to believe the parents of Sandy Hook really had no children that were murdered. In one such case a man and woman follow this man around as if they want to beat a confession out of him. They ended up arrested. Look at these things and you see the extreme the right will go to in order to continue making a huge profit with no regard for others or our environment. They create a script and persuade the gullible to go along with it. If I am wrong then it must be OK to pollute our water and kill our children. Remember that armaments and drugs are the 2 biggest money makers in the world.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 28, 2018:
Hello. It is nice to meet you Carla Jones.
What have you always wanted? Did you ever get it?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 28, 2018:
Sometimes it makes you sorry. As a kid I wanted all the candy I could eat and my own pony. Today all my teeth have rotted out and the pony is long dead. Beware what you ask for.
Which news site you trust most?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 28, 2018:
I am able to watch news from all over the world because of streaming. This allows me to see which agencies of media seem to be telling the same or a similar story. It means I can compare BBC with CNN and PressTV or Reuters to get the story. Notice that I do not mention Alex Jones or Breitbart. I avoid anything with a slanted view towards Trump or his minions. Just how a man like Trump comes on the scene and declares everything as "fake news" shows me that he is trying to control media as well as people. He can't take the heat. It's never fully explained just where the asshole gets his news. I fact check mine worldwide.
Have you ever been catfished on a dating site?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 27, 2018:
I had to look this one up to know what you are talking about. Now that I understand it, the answer is yes, I have been "catfished." It happened quite often on Craigslist but I always caught it and knew what was going on. At no time did I ever give, offer, or lose money. I'm aware that that's what most of this is about to start with. MIngle 2 is a dating site that this can happen on very often. Just last Sunday afternoon I wasted time on a woman who ended up wanting money at the last minute. Of course those ideas don't work with me so the afternoon was just a waste of my time. I was born at night, but not last night.
Mistaken Identity
DenoPenno comments on Apr 27, 2018:
Not really, but in the 70's I was confused with a man named Bobby who was said to look like my twin. Often people called me by that name in a club or bar. I never could find the mysterious "Bobby."
Tougher than nails

The death of democracy: Why the radical Left may end up killing what it loves, The BigThink ...
DenoPenno comments on Apr 27, 2018:
I'm not an evolutionary biologist and therefore have a different take on this as a whole. To start with the left is not killing what it loves. This is not a blue and red issue but there are those who want you to think that way. Citizens United is a group who got it past our government that money is free speech. We all know a hundred speaks louder than a twenty so money can now pour into elected officials like never before and some of them are being paid off by big business and offered money to vote certain ways that are in favor of big business. What is happening here is buying into government in order to stop business and industry restrictions. If I can freely pollute and make a profit without a care or worry about others and the environment I have exactly what I want. The Kock brothers and friends are doing this. The hell with the EPA, etc. Nobody cares if you drink bad water or have oil spills. To pull this off there is a need to convince the public that "white is right" and that liberals are "taking away what is yours." Awaken the KKK and Nazis again and they will work for you on this. After all, you do not want to pay for the other's benefits. In the end we are all being stolen blind while the rich just get richer and their greed proves that they only cared for themselves.
What is your favorite TV-Series ?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 27, 2018:
Too many to list. I watch all the network stuff that is so popular today and can see almost any program here or in the UK because I do a lot of streaming. This puts me a day behind and able to watch TV series without commercials.
Just can't get enough of this.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 27, 2018:
It's all about him every time. What an asshole. Trump Tower catches on fire and one man dies. Trump makes it all about him and how well he builds things, but never has the proper sprinkling system installed. That day was all about him and most likely spawned at least 2 more lawsuits. Now the nutjob comes up with this crap on his wife's birthday. "Morons Are Governing America" and that includes the Kock brothers and others who decided to make this idiot POTUS.
I've believed there is a higher power but whether it is a God or an alien that remains to be seen.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 27, 2018:
The true Eden? The true Eden is the womb of a woman of child bearing age. Both male and female can be the naked occupants of that womb and all their needs are provided for. Once they are ready to feed differently they are forced out of that womb and can never return again. More than one god? There are thousands of gods. As for the Samaritan tablets I hold them in no greater regard than any other writing that claims to be scripture or holy in some way. Also, Chariots of the Gods didn't explain anything. It only deepened the mystery. We are all star stuff but other than that we have no clue where we came from.
Do Muslims Jews and other religions hate and despise Christians as much as Christians hate them?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 27, 2018:
Lots of Jews and Muslims hate each other. It depends on the sect they are from. We have that too. Evangelicals think they are the only ones who are right while lots of people claim the Catholics are not even Christian. Isn't this a bit like "no true Scotsman?"
I hate it when I'm just introducing myself to someone and I mention how I am an atheist.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 26, 2018:
My advice is don't mention that you are atheist unless the subject comes up. It happens to me too though. My boyhood religious friend says that "someday you will wake up in a place you don't want to be." This seems so stupid it is laughable. The truth is most believers think atheism is the belief of all the world's rulers and dictators, and of course, communists. Their own bible tells them that everyone believes in god, so if you are atheist then "something must have happened." Tell them something did happen. You grew up.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 26, 2018:
**This is hard to answer.** I'm an alcoholic and my drinking was stopped by liver disease. Not what you think. Just a fatty liver to extreme. I quit drinking for almost a year. The doctors gave me shots for Hep C and said if I got hepatitis I would surely die. OK, I started drinking again but this isn't what you think either. None of it tastes good. I wanna drink but can't. I've been drunk a couple of times but mostly I drink 1 to 3 drinks and quit. I pour it out. It just doesn't taste good any longer. Was it the shots? I have no antabuse or anything. No pills. Often after work I think on the way home that I'll come in and have several beers then eat supper. I get here and just eat supper and watch TV. I always have drinks around it's just that I don't drink them so much. I even give some of it away. Now let me compare this to my friend who is alcoholic. I was at his house yesterday and he can hardly walk or talk. He already has fallen down and hurt his leg. I'm afraid he's going to fall down and break his neck. He has court May 10th and his attorney says if he doesn't show up he will go to jail. I've been there myself in my past and I honestly cannot tell you what the difference in actions and reactions for the both of us could be. The best I can say is try to seek help in support groups and even a medical doctor. To make it work you have to want it to work.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 26, 2018:
Now let's add one: Isn't it true that at last minute during the 2016 presidential campaign Mr. Comey as FBI Director once again brought up something about Hillary Clinton's e-mails that needed to be investigated and this would most likely lead people away from voting for her?
For those who dropped theism...
DenoPenno comments on Apr 26, 2018:
Studying for the ministry or not, I think today that it was my parents who "called me to preach." I knew religion had to be real because of all the people who believed in it, but I never really could please my parents. As I dropped away from church I went through years of agony over this. It was almost heart breaking. Tears, booze, and much guilt. I "ran away" as a grown man because you just could not please them. I got away from it all including my parents. By 2012 I was into You Tube videos and found former Pentecostal preacher Jerry DeWitt. I couldn't believe my ears. He was speaking to me and telling the truth. My burden lifted and my guilt went out the window. Next was Christopher Hitchens and a few others. I knew I was free and no longer a theist. I've never felt better about it in my life.
Why are atheists not willing to form a coalition?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 26, 2018:
Maybe this is because of the nature of atheism. We do not believe in gods. This is really the only tenant of qualification. To form coalitions and the like we would have to post something on the order of "this is what we believe." Not fr from this you find yourself almost becoming a religion.
What accent ( French, Spanish, etc.) do you like?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 26, 2018:
I love accents and can do some of them. Not accurate mind you, but just crazy movie stuff. If in the mood for that and we both have a few drinks I will make you laugh like crazy.
Well, nobody can say I'm not making progress.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 26, 2018:
Congrats! Well done.
I'm amazed when the "Believers" come up with their "correct" political beliefs.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 26, 2018:
Most Evangelicals in America get their ideas both from their bible and from the preacher. Some go to church 3 times a week and hear this preacher telling them exactly how it is. This guy doesn't even know his bible, let alone know anything at all about documents of our government. With everything going on there is a new store in my small town right now. They claim to be based on the 2nd Amendment and appear to want you to buy guns and flags. You can do what you want to but I don't see anything here that is based upon reason. Just more Trump supporters that want to worship his ass. As for me, I only have 1 gun and I have no desire to fly an American flag. Maybe I don't see much Patriotism going on here.
Anyone with thoughts on the idea of a basic universal income for all?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 26, 2018:
Here's my opinion of the problems on this. How do you determine a basic universal income for all? In my area I can get by on $1500 to $1600 a month pretty easily. I can maintain what I have and own with this amount. You can't do that in St. Louis or Chicago. Is the basic amount for all going to vary and fluctuate so you can buy a new car to "keep up with the Jones'?" Will it allow all to be affording the same type of housing? My needs are smaller than many other people. They will need more than me. How do we determine a basic income for all?
Reincarnation or DNA Memory?

Politically speaking, are atheists more liberal or conservative leaning?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 25, 2018:
Certainly there is more than just liberal and conservative. At my age now I am very liberal. I believe in equality for all, here and all over the world. I could best be described today as a Democratic Socialist. Now if you wanna talk about what is mine and my money, then I am very conservative. I only have money because I refuse to buy a new car. I own a half acre and live in a mobile home. This only changes if I win millions in the lottery. I live like I do coz I once had a handle on life but it fell off. Oh, well. I do what I want to do.

Is anyone else sick and tired of all the Superhero movies?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 25, 2018:
I like them because I liked Superheros as a kid. On the other hand, if you watch TV today everybody is a Superhero. Supergirl and the Flash are like this. Everybody has a super power. The Black Lightning series was the same way. Maybe the message is that we are all "super" in our own special way.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 25, 2018:
Christians have enough nonsense without me making it easier for them to lie. As a young man I was taken in by this crap because the adults seemed to believe in it. Why would the adults lie? Since there is no evidence either way it appears they keep up the lie to avoid being gullible. Besides, look at centuries of us all that believed for some reason. Yes! 1. People do not want to die 2. Nobody wants to go to hell If I discuss "show me the air" with a Christian we are next into ideas that we breathe in god every day of our lives. If this is god and he is eternal then we are talking the universe which just might have always existed in some way. So much for useless god talk.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 24, 2018:
The JW's are very outspoken with it all and the pamphlets they pass out says it. You might read something on it's cover like "Do you want answers to all the age old questions" Well, certainly we do. That's how cults and religions suck you into their system. Do they have answers? NO, they just make things up. Who am I Why am I here Where did I come from Who are all these others What is my future We might define ourselves off of those questions but absolutely nobody has the answers. It's an impossible quest. Live your life the best you can because you do not have an afterlife future.
What to do about population?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 24, 2018:
If what I see in the news is correct our over population is taking care of itself. Things are much worse in the last 2 years. Rather than government going all fascist and white supremacist, they could make new rules that a couple can only have one and a half children. Some time back cows were a danger because of all the methane. The solution was to kill more cows. Today it looks like this idea is being applied to people.
Telling women not to do things because "it's not safe" is a big pet peeve of mine.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 24, 2018:
I see the gender difference you are speaking of here. Speaking for both genders my remarks today is that many things are not safe. If I am to believe the worldwide news (not Trump's fake news) you might get killed if you simply go shopping or walk on a sidewalk.
It’s so disturbing that this nut is in the White House.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 24, 2018:
I'm very disturbed by this nut in the White House. There is no question that Trump must go. The sooner the better, and I do not even care by what means he leaves. If he was shot and killed tomorrow my remark would be "it couldn't have happened to a nicer man." Tensions have eased up a bit lately. I think it's his damned nagging tweets that keep poking me like a needle. Not so much of that in this last week. I've wanted to scream or nickname him "the tweeting bastard." For godsake just leave the common man alone without reminding him of yourself every day. Go away!
What do you think?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 24, 2018:

DenoPenno comments on Apr 24, 2018:
That describes me and my ex-wife. I must admit that as things deteriorated I let it go and did nothing, To her this was a sign that she was right. No, it's called not communicating. I do have regrets but I'm also well aware that it was for the best and I don't want to be in that situation again. If we ever ended up together again it would have to be without marriage. Have I moved on? What am I supposed to "move on" to?
The Agnostic Treadmill
DenoPenno comments on Apr 24, 2018:
Don't know. Don't read Dante and I don't believe any bullshit about heaven. A place in the sky that is surrounded by walls and has a big gate. It's ancient goat herder mentality.
What would you say to God if when you died you were faced with him?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 24, 2018:
How could I be faced with anything when I die? My long time religious friend from childhood days says one day I'm gonna wake up in a place where I do not want to be. How can a dead person wake up? Yes, death is compared to sleep but what else would ancient goat herders compare it to? Look at the cultures over time that talk of something after death and not a one of them with any proof whatsoever.
About a year, or so, ago, I was in my car looking at my phone at a stoplight.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 23, 2018:
I drive for a living so I hear you. Believe it or not I see a great amount of people texting and driving. One time I saw a woman get into her car and strap her cell phone onto her left hand at the steering wheel before she drove away. Please, if you have to do this buy the hands free device that plays your phone through your radio.
Well just wanted to talk to yall for a minute.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 23, 2018:
It's unfortunate but this is how women tend to think. Getting you in church makes both of you the same and her god will thank her too. Chances are she thought you were just "angry with god." Why? Maybe because their bible book teaches them that. The book also says that everybody believes in god, BTW. Either she thinks in her own mind that you "have had enough time" to make this decision so you can "both be equal" or her pastor or friends have been advising her about it. Evangelicals call it "being unequally yoked."
I suspect this could be the future.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 23, 2018:
I can find nothing that justifies the actions of these cops. The woman was waiting for a form to file a complaint with and had some words with an employee. OK, that part was over and she is waiting for this form when the cops show up and the rest of it is caught on video. Now let's suppose that the cops were called and when they show up this woman does have to leave. Let's suppose that is the law. All the cops have to do is ask her what she is doing and when she tells them they take her outside and also get this form for her from management. Everything is peaceful and there is no King Konging going on. End of problem.

The original Blob with Steve McQueen made us kids not want to go around picking up things with sticks. It's ironic at one point when the horror comes rolling out of a movie theatrer. Well, of course. It's a movie!
I went to see "The Color Purple" musical this evening, and it was good.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 23, 2018:
I've not seen it as a musical. The film was good and an actress friend of mine is in it. I think the role was good for her in many ways.
It's starting to work..
DenoPenno comments on Apr 23, 2018:
Too bad Trumpty Dumpty doesn't lose his seat. The moron plays golf while sending his wife to the Barbara Bush funeral and he can't even get off Air Force One with Melania at his side. It's plain that in his world he is the only thing that counts.
Want to know
DenoPenno comments on Apr 22, 2018:
I'm not sure but I hope it all throws a giant monkey wrench into the plans of the Kock brothers and friends. What did they expect when you get this much discord?
Avert your eyes, children.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 22, 2018:
A friend of mine uses this to try and get me back in church but we all know what he is really trying to do. Since I was confused and thought god wasn't real he wants me crying and saying "I'm so sorry, Jebus." Boo hoo hoo hoo. Actually I am sorry. I'm sorry that Jebus must go through all of eternity with holes in his hands, scars all on his body, and some of his hair missing coz they pulled it out. This was why a lot of people didn't recognize him.
Does anyone else write answers on Quora regularly?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 22, 2018:
I am on Quora but have only written 3 answers. Mostly I read and upvote and often I comment after a post. From time to time I see some idiot thing on there that gets my immediate downvote and it dissappears. I'm very much into atheist and agnostic posts but I support others. I am careful. Two of my friends are actresses and they are believers, but not Evangelical. They are liberals. I'm best described as a Democratic Socialist these days. In my lifetime I have been a member of America's 3 top parties.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 22, 2018:
I agree, but find it appalling that any person anywhere believes Trump about anything.
He only has eyes for Ivanka....
DenoPenno comments on Apr 22, 2018:
Good point. I feel for this poor girl. At one point Ivanka and her 2 brothers tried to cheat Tiffany out of her inheritance. I'm not sure where that idea came from but Trump once fought his brother in court to take away his nephew's healthcare. It's a rotten family. What can you say?
This religious Republican take over started with Reagan.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 22, 2018:
We are not seeing where this is all coming from and maybe they do not want us to see. It's all from the Kock brothers and friends. Billionaire businessmen who first bought into politics with ideas that "money is free speech." If you have given the most money then you are speaking the loudest. Then Obama came along and EPA regulations and other things like healthcare cut the money. They had to un-do everything Obama. OMG. They had to un-do this after his first term, but that didn't happen. Fortunately for them they gave enough money incentives to keep him at bay and make it so nobody would work with him. Trump was ready at the end of Obama's first term. They first wanted to run Paul Ryan for POTUS but he thought he was more effective in other roles. Trump registered his MAGA message then. That's right. Perfectly legal for him to sell MAGA hats made in Taiwan or China. Obama's second term ended and it appeared that a woman who would bring on more and more regulation was slated to be POTUS. Discredit her at all costs. Get anyone you can to help you do this. Create discord and doubt. Distort truth. Confuse the people and make business strong and less regulated again. Trump and his swamp are elected and set about immediately to un-do anything Obama. The religious right is a part of this also because they have hopes of defining America as a "Christian Nation." Paul Ryan and any of those that helped are getting some extra money for their efforts. Nobody cares if you drink bad water. Nobody cares about oil spills on your land. Nobody gives a rat's ass if you have healthcare. Nobody cares about the purity of the air we breath. Thanks to the Kock brothers and friends America is set back 75 years and it is all about making money.
I think one of the worst tenets of religion is unquestioned belief.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 22, 2018:
I have given up most of the beliefs of the supernatural world. As a young man I studied a lot of them because everyone knew god was supernatural. Therefore, anything was possible and the supernatural was real. Today I find this not to be the case. I no longer believe in your god, alein Charlie, or the ringtailed dandy on Uranus.
Traitor Trump and the art of the plea deal...

Wasn't it Trump who said "all you have to do is say something 2 or 3 times and people start believing it?" WTF? Who in the hell would write a tell all book and put that in it? Only Dolt45.

Yesterday I cut the umbilical cord that tethered me to cable TV.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 21, 2018:
I watch lots of TV through the Internet and watch almost anything that I want, but I have also invented my own TV antenna. It's light weight and less than 3 feet long, 38 foot in the air, and I get all the St. Louis stations on it. I have 32 channels totally free now. I've dropped Dish and Charter. Why do I need them?
This has probably been asked a lot but here goes... Do you ever feel shame for being an atheist?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 21, 2018:
Shame for being an atheist. Why shame? It is only now that I feel like I have the truth. It is only the dogma of religions that is shameful. They teach you shame.
Too funny. It's always, "Back to the drawing board."
DenoPenno comments on Apr 20, 2018:
It makes me think of the 1970's when reports of people all over American having picked up hitchhikers that dissappeared. Supposedly these guys were "angels." Suddenly they would say "Jesus is coming again soon" and vanish from the car. After 2 or 3 reports it was like an epedemic. Did this really happen? Of course not, but the Evangelicals might have told you differently.
I scream, you scream!

Do you have nicknames for your pets?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 20, 2018:
I never did have nick names for my pets but that was years ago and today I am alone without any pets. This posting makes me realize that both my daughters have nick names for their pets. I'm not sure if they always did or not. IDK?
Do your family and friends think you're going to hell?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 20, 2018:
My religious friend from early teen years thinks that someday I'm gonna wake up in a place that I do not want to be. He means die and wake up in hell, of course. But it already happened. I was in religion and I woke up someplace I didn't want to be. Then I left! Only in religion can you die and then wake up. It's ridiculous.
Golden ShowerGate is coming soon to media near us allā£??
DenoPenno comments on Apr 20, 2018:
Trump's secret daydream would be golden showers starring his daughter, Ivanka.
Have you fine folks seen this one? ??
DenoPenno comments on Apr 20, 2018:
The brain that thought this one up must be driving that wrecked car in the background.
Born again Christians.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 19, 2018:
Drugs may or may not have been involved. There is much evidence today to show that parts of the bible were written after the fact. If so, drugs would not have been needed. Early believers can site "evidence" as coming from a book or because Charlie said it was so. That's enough for the common man over 2000 years ago. In fact, that's enough for most common people yet today.
What is a good reason to be happy?

Cannabis supporters
DenoPenno comments on Apr 19, 2018:
Let me enlighten everyone here. Cannabis is a big money maker worldwide just as guns and armaments are. This is why the big dope bust is limited. All they ever catch is the little guy. This is also why cannabis is not totally legal today. Once it becomes so a lot of people are losing a lot of money. That's where it's at right there. The money. My personal belief is that it's insane to believe you can have a law to prohibit someone from smoking a weed that grows wild out in the field, but that is just my belief.

Just out of curiosity, does anyone have any thoughts on quantum consciousness?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 19, 2018:
Does anyone have any experience with quantum consciousness? So far, not even Michio Kaku. Does this mean we should ignore the subject? No. What it does mean is that in enough time we will find people who claim to have experienced it just like those taken for rides in UFO's.
This subject matter might be a bit macabre to most, but I recently came across an article saying ...
DenoPenno comments on Apr 19, 2018:
Once we get rid of big daddy in the sky, the creator of all that doesn't want any to perish but yet will burn you forever, it makes a lot of sense. If you are of sound mind and want to end your existence this is a personal decission. To be legal I'm sure your relatives would have to weigh in on this, but that's OK. What if you have few or no living relatives? What comes into play here is a fear of death just as we see in religion. People are afraid that this would become common practice and government would set an age at which you had to die.
So in order to get a job, I colored my hair tonight. I think I look younger?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 18, 2018:
You look great. I think the pressure is more on a woman to dye their hair. I used to dye mine but I've let it go naturally lately. One pic in my profile shows me at last Thanksgiving.

How Y’all, Youse and You Guys Talk.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 18, 2018:
When we lived in Texas there was a teacher there from the East. He liked my younger daughter and she always made him laugh when she said to fellow students, "hey, wait up you guys." That was her words and how she talked. "Hey, wait up you guys." The teacher would laugh and shake his head. "Youse guys" he would say and he thought it was very funny. It was funny because that was not what my daughter was saying. It was my daughter who told me this story.

Are you all ready for April 23rd??? And you thought TAX DAY was stressful. :P [patheos.com]
DenoPenno comments on Apr 17, 2018:
Why do people keep predicting this? Is anyone aware that the scriptures backing it up are very limited and actually refer to the 70 AD war.(one taken and one left.) This shows that your "gospel" was written later than you first thought and the books were not eyewitness accounts. Later still we have Revelation which is a hidden account of religion vs. Rome at the time. Next comes Constantine and 328 AD with ideas of certain scriptures in one great big book. Many years later we see Evangelicals that believe Revelation predicts a future time of "rapture" where believers are caught up and away to protect them from the world. Sorry folks. There are no "end time" predictions but they just keep making shit up. Yes, the bible says you will be caught up into the air to meet Jesus but a rapture is not what it was talking about. It doesn't matter. None of it will ever happen. Confusion, misunderstanding, and always making things up. That's the ways of religion.
