Texas GOP Leader: George Floyd’s Murder Was “Staged” to Create “Racial Tensions” | Hemant...
DenoPenno comments on Jun 6, 2020:
I read one about this that reported it was all staged to embarrass Donald Trump. OK. Some of the cops are now quitting because of the George Floyd murder in support of the cops that were involved in the killing. How does this woman justify that when it would indicate that cops do not like Trump? I don't find this to be so. There is to much of **ALL** of something or somebody to keep the bipartisan hatred going. Things do not work that way in real life.

DenoPenno comments on Jun 6, 2020:
Hypocritical? All believers are hypocritical. Just take abortion. Jesus said nothing about that issue at all but there is something in the OT in Numbers 5:11-31 that gives a procedure they followed if the husband suspected he was not the father of the soon to be born child. Keep in mind also that the bible says a child is not a person until it draws the first breath. Now let's jump to so called religious ones killing abortion doctors and they actually think they are doing god's work. Does that add up? It is hypocritical and not in the bible.

DenoPenno comments on Jun 6, 2020:
Nicely worded. Today I went uptown to the local Christian mission place. It's a store that sells used things for profit and I was looking for some chair cushions I saw there the other day. They had already sold them but I was told they had to hold them 72 hours without anyone touching them to know they are COVID free. I was told this is the policy they follow to protect everyone. BS I said. If that was true you would also be holding all the money the same way and we all know that isn't happening. That money is collected and goes straight to the bank. One woman there started laughing and told me I got them on that one. She then said she does not believe this virus is even real. I told her it would be hard to get the worlds dying people to just go along with it. Something here is real. I them told her about the 5G scam going on because believers in that claim 5G is causing all this. It's not and believers of it have no logic. This was about the time I had to leave. She was no longer talking to me or wanting to hear me. The poor woman thinks we have a created virus coming from cell phone towers and other wifi devices. Some people want to believe nonsense.

Do we have free will?
DenoPenno comments on Jun 1, 2020:
There is no free will. You think you have free will but it is a delusion. In your mind you might think you are going home to have a nice steak but you get home and have something else. The very concept of advertising works on an idea of directing your will and it proves to be greatly successful. A rich person may have more choices in a certain matter than you do and a female may see things differently. Free will is not involved but everything in your past certainly is. Most of us have a different past than others and this is so because we are individuals. Now here comes the concept of free will in total.** It is a religious concept** argued by the Christians because their god created you with free will. This is so because this god wants you to worship it/she/him out of the freedom of your own mind and not because you were commanded to. Without "free will" the religious concept will not work, and does not work.

It was because of new diseases that natives died and this reinforced the idea of white supremacy. Whites hold this idea today without knowing where it came from.

The best I can say here is that this video has to be allowed at the trial and there certainly should be a trial. These 2 cops should be convicted of murder, One for doing the crime and the other one for being complicit and allowing it to happen. When they are sentenced for murder it should not be a token sentence because they were cops. It should be a real sentence of 25 to 30 years. There is no way any normal person could not watch this and see the cops involved are racist thugs. They need to be taken off the street and put away.

Is homosexuality a choice?
DenoPenno comments on May 26, 2020:
Christians tell you flat out that god did not create Adam and Steve. Since they believe man and woman are to procreate and "replenish the earth" they automatically understand that this cannot happen when people are gay. If you are homosexual you are going against the teachings of their book so being gay must therefore be a choice you have made. It makes sense to them but they fail to see that biblical homosexuality only deals with men. This is because women are actually considered property. The bible never deals with lesbianism. Wrong as they are, they think gay is a choice and Mike Pence and friends will always want to "pray away the gay." Many even think that demon spirits made you gay. Trying to pray away this gay is no different to them than praying that the playboy male who married Susie will be faithful to only her now and stop going with all the other women. If this is a little trucked up it's because their book cannot be wrong and neither can their god.

Memorial Day thoughts of a former Nationalist.
DenoPenno comments on May 25, 2020:
I agree with you fully, David. People are continually tell me that Memorial Day is now open to anyone who has lost a loved one. I'm sorry. This is all wrong. Memorial Day is to honor those fallen servicemen who lost their lives fighting for this country. That is the sole purpose this day was set aside for. If you want to go to the cemetery to visit a loved one who was not military you can do that also if you like, but it is NOT what this day originally was for. Yes, we have heros lost in the COVID-19 battle to but let us not cheapen the day please. As for god choosing America and Americans now being his chosen people, this is something that started with Herbert W. Armstrong and his "British Israelism" ideas. The basic premise is that the Jews lost the chosen people status for their role in the crucifixion, and the mantle of being the chosen people went on the Britain and then later to America. I'm sure many thought Armstrong was crazy as a loon but the idea caught on beyond his World Tomorrow program. Most likely this advanced the "Christian Nation" ideas. Believers just keep on making it all up.
Someone Special Comes Into Your Life For a Reason?
DenoPenno comments on May 25, 2020:
No, this is not correct. You are making an assumption of science and applying it to people. Things happen for a reason in science but with people things just happen. Being creatures that like to connect the dots we will take up with that "someone special" simply because we believe they are special. To believe that someone special comes into your life for a reason you have to believe that your life is being directed or guided in some way. Some people will want you to feel this way simply to be with you. Who or what is guiding your life?

Less fear of hell?
DenoPenno comments on May 25, 2020:
Truthfully, I had little fear of hell even as a believer. People need to keep in mind that hell evolved just like their scriptures evolved. Along with all of that the meanings have changed. Hell was simply an idea coming out of a city garbage dump, and we end up today seeing it as a place. The original idea was that you would be burned up just like garbage in the end. See Jacob 6:10 and you see the Mormons have given us ideas we all think of for hell, even if you were not Mormon. Then we have the OT Valley of Hinnom where people (and even children) were sacrificed to Molock. In the Dake bible we see also that those in heaven will be able to look down into hell. I'm not sure if this is to keep you on god's side or for ones in heaven to gloat because they made it and some people they knew did not. My studies took me through all of this and I lost a fear of hell. My studies are why I no longer believe in gods today.

I know where they are going before they get there.

DenoPenno comments on May 25, 2020:
Good luck. We are in a phase now for the dumbing down of America in order to get you to not know exactly what to believe. This is done willingly and knowingly through QAnon, Plandemic videos, and other things. (They are soon to release Plandemic 2) Most people are part of the "deepfake" and do not even know it. When I was a boy in school we were told of the evils of Russia and how in their communism they did not even have enough food. Do not believe it today. The drive is on now in our country to scare us into hoarding food because we keep seeing empty shelves. Russia is still like this. Freedom is losing out to panic and this keeps profits at the very top level. Many tell me now that business insiders claim the next 2 months of quotas are already met. Marketing tactics are changing with a trend to make us all just like third world countries. The motive behind it all is money. Many still believe that businesses can be brought back to America. How would this ever happen when it would lead to a loss of profit? We are being trained for something now and COVID-19 came along just at the right time. Prove all things because soon we will not know what to believe. The Internet used to help me a lot but today you cannot look for an exact thing. Marketing has demanded that search engines produce what you are looking for along with related things. The trend is to make truth an individual thing. Either way, marketing today is selling you. You are now the product and you need a new app.
Drumpf's religious hypocrisy...
DenoPenno comments on May 24, 2020:
I believe the pastor on this one. Trump has said before that he never did anything to ask forgiveness for and those around him today claim he is "the Chosen One." We all know that Trump just eats this up. As for bible study being big in public schools a religious friend of mine said way back there somewhere they used the bible for their Weekly Readers. I'm sure he meant in the late 1700's or even the 1800's. The Weekly Reader program is only about 110 years old. What Trump is lying about this time is that he and DeVos would love to see the end of public education as we know it.

Paul is credited with writing almost two thirds of the NT and claims he met this Jesus but it is not true. Jesus was an apparition in the sky only but did speak. How would this said Jesus have had an audience with Pilate and in what language did they speak? Prophesy in the bible appears to have been contrived and made up, or in some cases the events mentioned are after 70 AD. The man, Jesus, could have been a Roman invention and Paul was part of this. There is no way to actually check it out. Why did Jesus have a tomb when most crucified people were put into a mass grave? The bible says a guard was placed at the tomb. I suppose they were afraid that he would actually rise from the dead. In Israel they value tourism and will gladly show you the tomb of Jesus. None of this is what the bible thumpers of today think it is. Why would anyone ever think that Jesus would like crosses and have you wear one as a religious symbol? If there was a Jesus he was a Jew. Not at all what his cult following has come to believe today.

DenoPenno comments on May 23, 2020:
Morals without religion is actually redundant. The problem is that bible believers think their OT tribal god who was jealous and killed people is the one who gave them morals. Somehow they attribute this to the Ten Commandments. Exactly where is it in there that this god gave you morals or even a "moral compass" as so many talk about? I studied for the ministry as a Pentecostal and I cannot find it. Your morals are largely dictated by the structure of your society.
Wired for marriage: The neural and genetic links to romantic love - Neuroscience News
DenoPenno comments on May 23, 2020:
Marriage has a completely different history. Early on there was a recognition and ceremony to show the tribe or village that two people were exclusive to each other. I suppose this would seem logical. The church did not take over marriage until the 13th century and only started strict enforcement of the sacrament in the 16th century. So, today you gotta get a license. LOL
Trump orders houses of worship to open [cnn.
DenoPenno comments on May 22, 2020:
Trump believes he has total power and can order anything he likes. He is a moron that is surrounded by those who claim he is "The Chosen One." They are mostly batshit crazy. Trump can no more order a church to open than he can a jar of pickles. He is not magic in any way and he lies a lot.

DenoPenno comments on May 22, 2020:
I don't think about it much. I do remember Michael Landon who died of pancreatic cancer. On a TV program once they questioned him about taking coffee enemas. He said something to the affect of a person would try anything in his state. It was non-operable. That tells me that people worried about the virus today will also try anything.
COVID-19 pandemic myths are spreading faster than the virus. But Why?

Lots of trusted and believable info in that HuffPost article. Too bad that people just believe what they want to believe and many of them believe without any knowledge of the subject matter. They just want to connect the dots.

I believe what evidence and logic will support. Religious writings are not evidence in any way. Harry Potter and the Dick and Jane Reader have about as much claim to truth as religious writings. I'm not sure what happens when you die but I think you are dead. Others just keep on making it up.

DenoPenno comments on May 21, 2020:
God was too arrogant and proud to change a rule that he made in the first place. That's why it came to this. You have to believe in him and know that he killed himself for you. In the real world this idea is insane.

Indeed. The Evangelical Christian message is clear. They only care for themselves.

I can see this and I really do not like people in general. When I find that they believe some sort of religion I like them less. I know lots of people but only a select few are really my friends.
