Elect a bigot president who claims racism is OK and you end up getting back to this sort of nonsense in a short time. It's like a former friend of mine claiming we should shoot those crossing our borders because "Trump would be OK with it." The "white right" is OK with this church thing because of the POTUS they helped to elect.
FEED MY BIAS ! My history is bad.
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.

DenoPenno comments on May 24, 2020:
I deal with stress mostly by avoiding it. Way too many people thrive in stress and even try to create it. I do all I can to avoid it. Stress and drama go hand in hand. I do not like either but I am aware that your job can stress you if you let it. Sometimes this happens because you are one person at work and another person when not at work. I try to be the same person all the time and it's OK because I have no desire to be corporate in any way. I try to not let my work or other people play games with me.

Atheists being blamed for burning down a church in Mississippi. How do they know the culprits were atheists? Do they have them in custody and they confessed maybe and said they did it because of their atheist belief. That's a far stretch. Are they true Scotsmen? Maybe this is hearsay.

Was Jesus a man who became mythicized or a myth that became historicized or something else?
DenoPenno comments on May 23, 2020:
Food for thought here. The bible as we know it today came into being some 300 years after the time of Jesus. 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

There is so much of the time that I agree with what you wrote. What is important to me these days is not important to any others and my limited friends do not see how I can live as I do. They play games of belonging and trying to live up to standards they have learned from their past. I like to think I am beyond that. I haven't given up. There is no aspiration or dreams of anything. Just being and doing what I want. My regret is there is no one to share it with, but just what would I be sharing?

He was mentioned in my church days but his commentaries were not of the bible as we know it today. Some of it existed but that book had not been created yet.

Is it still a lie if you don't know it isn't true?
DenoPenno comments on May 18, 2020:
When you tell a lie it is because you know in your mind that you are lying. Telling an un-truth is another matter. Most of us know when we are not telling the truth. By this logic you know that when Charlie tells you he has pixies living in his shoes or that there is an invisible man watching you in the sky, Charlie is either: 1. Indoctrinated early on into his belief or decided it was true because he has always heard it is true. OR 2. Charlie is as crazy as a loon. This last idea is an expression as I'm not sure loons (birds) are crazy. It may also go back to the word "lunatic" which involves asylums or the moon having something to do with ones beliefs.

DenoPenno comments on May 17, 2020:
Trump repeatedly talks of "Obamagate" these days but he doesn't explain exactly what that is. He says to just keep watching. I'm sure his bunch is working with Bill Barr on that one. Now that Trump has learned he can get away with almost anything he appears to be trying to smear any person in office before him. Let me explain it another way. If you remember the Central Park 5, recall that Donald Trump thought they were guilty and should be executed regardless of the DNA evidence. I'm sure he did this without the use of his sharpie.

As for noise in my yard that I can hear inside my place, I am blessed with the idiots from the 3 unit apartment complex next door. They party outside and play loud music. I do too, but not outside. They are often in my yard because the wall fence was not put back in place by the developer. I would bitch and complain but they might complain right back. I don't need a war and we are only 50 feet apart. Because of the landscaping if someone gets hurt they would have to sue the developer. He's the one that removed the fence and said later that we do not need it. I do go out occasionally to tell them NOT to play in my yard.

What a morning.
DenoPenno comments on May 11, 2020:
It could be anything. People are stupid and gullible. As for hand sanitizers simply try washing your hands using 2 drops of Dawn after you have got the hands wet, then work that into a small lather. Rinse and you are done. This is affective and you do not need alcohol. I was in the license renewal office today and saw people frantically using hand sanitizers for the most simple and crazy reasons. Nobody wants to get sick and die but this is insanity! As for toilet paper and paper towels, I probably have a 3 month supply right now. I normally only have 4 packs of each (or even less) but the panic buying has caused me to react this way. I hate it and the business love it. They are all over monthly quotas for the next 2 months because of this craziness. I've been lucky enough to keep my normal supply of food. Avoid the Q-Anon infodemic going on right now. There is no truth in it at all. You have to look that one up, but it is some of this fear that is keeping the gullible going and it might be causing many to go insane! Wise up and prove all things. Use logic not pandemic.

People keep adding to it because they want to have all the answers and some of this nonsense fits in with what they want to believe with a lot of that going back into their religion, politics, etc. It seems to me that our current regime and others that plant disinformation are working overtime on this. Educate yourselves and be aware. There is zero truth in Q-Anon.

DenoPenno comments on May 9, 2020:
Informative article from Vice here. I have only recently become aware of Q-anon and all their nonsense along with those who believe it. Way too many believe it. Yesterday at a local license bureau that had recently re-opened, I stopped by in uniform to see their hours. A line had formed outside and I asked a question or two of the 9 people there in the line. Since they were limiting people inside the building I wanted to get an idea of how long it might take and how long others had been in the line. A woman spoke up and told me "The Democrats want Socialism and it looks to me like they are going to get it." She thought her response would explain lines, viruses, sheltering in place, distancing, etc. I replied that I see her concern but my take on it all is this is what the current GOP wants and it is a different type of Socialism that we have all seen before. A few there agreed with me and shook their heads as I got into Q-anon tactics and beliefs. Being in uniform and working right up the street from that office either appeared to give me more authority, or in the end it might even put my job at risk. I do not care and could not help it. I think people need to know the truth and Q-anon is not part of it.

DenoPenno comments on May 8, 2020:
UBI is a needed thing to help with the general welfare of the people. Just enough of it to get you by and also provide you with the necessary healthcare. One reason it is proposed is that we have too many products and apps and those that make them want to continue making a profit. They are willing to cave for a bit less and help citizens out in order to keep going with business as usual. Where will the money come from? Those who view us as the product will be making this happen. Beyond all that you can start a business and make all the capital that you like. Other countries have this sort of system now and it helps to take care of many people.
Prove me wrong.
DenoPenno comments on May 7, 2020:
Everyone thinks it's a booming economy but most people will see everything go to hell if they miss 2 paychecks. They get behind on everything and I'm told most families are doing good to have $400 for an emergency. That's a shame. Last year my water heater went out. I spent over $600 to replace it and did all the work myself. I didn't like it but I just wrote the check. This is possible because I do not have any "extra money." IRS returns and stimulus checks are not "extra money." Many people have to be educated on this.

DenoPenno comments on May 6, 2020:
It may be true that the Trump tariffs on China hurt U.S. capitalists but people are failing to call out that U.S. working people like John Doe are the ones buying almost all of these imported Chinese products. **This means the American people are the real ones paying the tariffs. **Ttrump supporters do not want to hear that and media has now seemed to back away and treat this as being normal. It is not normal and it used to not be normal. How could I ever treat it as normal? Using some Trump logic here I'm going to claim that I do not like Charlie and I will tell him so and then hit Bobby in the eye until Charlie apologizes to me. This is about as dumb as Jesus dying for you so you don't have to die, then you die anyway. It seems that both politics and religion want you to believe something that you know is not really so.

My religious wife watches Christian movies and I hate it.
DenoPenno comments on May 6, 2020:
Years ago I knew a man who stood with his wife as he told me "as for me and my household nobody here watches 90210." (That's an older TV show.) My impression immediately was that he had control and would not let his wife and kids watch that show. I never watched the show much myself but I felt sorry for them. I really did.

DenoPenno comments on May 5, 2020:
The claims need proof, but we knew they were stupid. Their book says believers can drink poison and take up serpents and there are still a few wanting to prove this by handling rattlesnakes. If they get bit and die their faith was not strong enough or they had "secret sin" in their lives.
"In a certain sense, postmodernism seems to be the last step of secularization.
DenoPenno comments on May 5, 2020:
We have not really killed god. Are you telling me to look at the trees and the sunset? The Internet has killed god. He is desperately gasping and still kicking but the fatal wound has been made.

DenoPenno comments on May 3, 2020:
I'm still amazed at people who think abortion is an easy decision and that women are using it for birth control. No common sense in that idea. Strangely, I was talking coronavirus the other day with a store clerk and said our cases are now over a million in the USA. She quickly compared it to "those millions of babies who are being aborted every day." What babies? Where is this information coming form?

Virginity: Atheist vs. Agnostic vs. Deist vs. Born Again
DenoPenno comments on May 3, 2020:
I'm out of context here but I have never found any real value in a virgin. Some might compare her to a full bottle of new wine and use the illustration that you would not be pleased if some of the wine is missing. Only men smile with this. I'm back where I started with this. Nothing is gone or used up. She's a woman and not a bottle of wine. I still find no value in a virgin.
Talking dirty. De-stigmatizing sex talk []
DenoPenno comments on May 2, 2020:
My view on talking dirty during sex is that I think it came about by others being told at a young age that sex was dirty. My opinion is that it never should be and I will never call you names. I also have a perfect safe word for sex games. It is called "stop."

DenoPenno comments on May 2, 2020:
I'm going with if there were a god there would be no children in St. Jude with cancer and suffering because of "sins of their fathers." Some religions still use that lame excuse you know.
Why Religion Is Not Going Away and Science Will Not Destroy It
DenoPenno comments on May 2, 2020:
If religion did go away some idiot would bring it back. Maybe it would just take another form. Everybody knows that 2 aspirin will work for a headache but some people have to take 3, 4, or 6. What does this mean? It means that people just keep lying. I want you to know that the juju helped me and I know it personally. My juju is stronger than your juju.
