A different perspective; Is the fight against COVID19 worse than the disease?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 26, 2020:
Are people daydreaming and are we in our right minds? COVID-19 is similar to the flu in many ways. Are we building up immunity to the flu and are there vaccinations to "cure" it? No. Why do we think we can get a coronavirus "cure?" Chances are that the virus will be back regardless of what we do. I don't think this thing works the same way VD does.
I think the definition of religion should be expanded.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 26, 2020:
I have no need of religion of any kind. As for being "spiritual" in any way this can be anything you want it to be. It might be "spiritual" for you to sit and watch the ocean but the term you are using still came out of someone's holy book. What basic spiritual need is it that we have? This is all delusion. Many people want to be happy having this delusion but they also cannot be honest with themselves.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 25, 2020:
I'm lonely and** not** loving it. I should love it because I am doing the things I love to do but I was used to doing them knowing that others (or at least one other) were around somewhere. My mind said that I'm doing what I like and they are too. Sometimes we would talk and do things together but not 24/7. In the end I found I have deceived myself. This "perfect state" was destroyed by everything having to be about them. They were not loving it and wanted my head up their ass all the time. Being equal was not enough for them. Apparently it never was. This is more or less the story of my life. Apparently I cannot give enough.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 24, 2020:
Safe when used correctly. How would that be? It seems plain to many of us that Monsanto and others want you to be totally dependent on them. They want farmers to be totally dependent on them, and so much so that they would end up being the only ones with seeds. Farmers would have "seedless crops" as much as possible. Then there are the reverse suits I've heard of where Monsanto wants to sue the farmer for contamination when it was totally the other way around. No, chemicals are not the answer.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 24, 2020:
I'm picky even at my age. I'm very leery of any woman who lives in her grandkids so much so that her grandkids can beat up my grandkids. I'm equally the same with women who have a god that can do this or maybe even beat up me. Most likely I'm not going to meet a good woman at the local atheist group coz we do not have one here. My never give up friend tells me my best chance is to meet a woman in church. Wow! If that happened and I wanted to be with someone so badly I could become converted again. Sounds like a poor plan to me.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 23, 2020:
Since you are from the land down under I'm going to suggest that some of this you are reporting is very similar to what we get in the U. S. from Trumpers and Fox News. I've heard of some of it but I cannot be convinced of wrong doing by WHO, the World Bank, CDC or even Bill Gates who has become a right wing target. What I am convinced of is that none of these mentioned are in particular alignment with conservatives or Donald Trump. Media is falling into a big trap right now. Even good media is reporting a one sided issue that came to them out of some gossip and they say later they wanted to report "both sides" but could not find anyone of the other viewpoint. This is because Trump and his right wing cronies are starting to be taken as normal. They are not normal and there was not another "side" to present. What goes on today is not Ronald Reagan politics. Shame on the media.
I’m an atheist but I want to ask a serious question.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 23, 2020:
**I use the word god** or maybe gods when I think those words refer to what another person is talking about, or to answer something in some sort of religious concept. The word "god" is not really a name and I have no other use for the name. I'm not sure why some people can only say "dog" and reverse the word. This is dumb to me but I do recall as a young person when we would swear openly by saying "mad dog backwards." (Nobody ever got that one. ) **Religion** is a belief system that has a set of rules and rituals to it. ** Church** is the building which houses the believers of a religion today but in early times the church was the people.
This article says everything that's wrong with healthcare in America.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 22, 2020:
I see your viewpoint fully but the media does not follow up on things like this and do the reporting that you did just now for all of us. Instead, media takes the words of the hospital CEO as truth and if you call them on it they claim they needed a view from "the other side" to be fair - but there was no other side. It makes me want to ask home dumb media is today. This is all similar to people who cannot afford their own healthcare but they remain against healthcare for all. Americans remain against their own best interests in a bath of bad politics.

How many of you feel religion negatively impacted your formative years?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 22, 2020:
Of course it did. I only heard bible stories and the like for a long while, then my parents got into church and got me interested and I was filled with lies. All lies, and nothing but lies. Today I am pissed off at those who immediately ask me "how do you think we all got here then?" If I tell them their god used incest to get the earth populated the believers want to claim people lived so long in those days that god's perfect plan was not really incest, etc., etc. They forget that their god used incest twice to populate and re-populate. I suppose this is some set up to claim why we really need god in the first place. Yeah, I was negatively impacted and lied to bigtime. Many of my religious friends today claim they just do not see this and do not know why I feel this way. This is also the reason I do not have many friends. I will not stay quiet about this when people start in about their "loving god."

This makes good sense to me. A lot of it depends on if your parents were particularly religious and everyone went to church or not. Some of it also depends on whether you were Evangelical or Catholic, or not, or from some other religious stripe. I had no fears of hell but it took me many years to decide that this was all made up. That includes hell, sins, and the invisible man who knows all and lives in the sky.

Recently my facebook newsfeed has been flooded with Church ads.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 21, 2020:
Facebook algorithms are crazy. Recently they flagged me for doing a copy and paste to deliver the same answers and said that was not allowed. I protested by asking why they could continually show me the same things over and over again and claimed it was normal for me to have some of the same answers. Nothing more became of it, and I continue as before. I'm not seeing church ads however. I do see more religious stuff because of COVID-19 and I get upsets if I post my truth to them. People are simply convinced the biblical "end" is here. What about "the end" according to other writings? One thing I do see much more of now is gambling. It's like slot machine casinos have taken over my Facebook feed. I click on the "like" for them and give them all a "ha ha ha." Maybe that's what keeps them coming. I never tell Facebook what I like or do not like nor what I want to see, etc.
Raising your children without religious influence
DenoPenno comments on Apr 21, 2020:
You did right. The problem here in reactions you get when the truth of raising comes out is that those reactions are coming from people who have read in their holy book that you should "raise up a child in the way he should go and in the end he will not depart from it." The difference is that you did this without religion and they believe their holy book was saying it about their god and religion. This is why so many children are indoctrinated.
What do you/people think about China's role in this epidemic?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 21, 2020:
If you listen to those who do not know and spread rumor for their own purposes you find a claim that China did this deliberately and created the virus in a lab for some reason. It's either as a weapon or to take down Trump and gain the billions of dollars in the 5G technology. Take this a step further and the Dems created the virus to take down Trump because impeachment did not work. Carry that on into Sid Roth and his show "It's Supernatural" and you find a man who claims god revealed all this to him in a dream. The script was read well. Shame on you, Sid. There is very little truth about COVID-19. We simply do not know. SARS-CO-1 before it came on the scene in 2002 and then was gone by 2004. We knew very little about it also.

I don't think they will or can do it. The DNC is committed to business as usual. They need to back off and see how this worked out in our last election. It did not work for them and I think since both parties have taken money from those at the top who lobby for control they are afraid to speak of Trump the way he really is. If they do so it would seem to attract progressives and that is the last thing the Democrats want. Therefore, they will continue to want "business as usual." They are defeated because they cannot allow their politics to be as dirty as Trump and his GOP.

Moral Compass
DenoPenno comments on Apr 20, 2020:
I'm not so sure i have a moral compass or even want one. Everybody talks about this but in a different way. The religious think they are "pious" and the non-believers seem to be going out of their way to claim they are the same. Your morality comes from your society at the time frame you are in and societal standards are not universal. A modern bathing suit is a great shock to someone from 1920. In some societies sex before marriage is desired. i view a worldwide picture on this issue and not a moral compass.

I had a group of friends in high school that I hung out with.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 19, 2020:
Whether you are a believer or not you are still developing bias as a younger person. Most of us believed in a god even if our families were not religious. In time religion develops its bias because it claims you can have all the answers. This, of course, is not true. Younger children play together and do not ask religious types of questions in a serious way. Bias and cognitive dissonance develops later. My best example from high school is that I do not remember classroom prayer. People I went to school with who are still in church say they do remember school prayer. (Thank the preacher for that.) I do however remember teachers offering on minute of silent prayer for those who wanted to pray. I'm aware that O'Hair put a stop to school prayer to cause this "silent one minute" that was mentioned, but I do not actually remember prayer in schools. People in my classes now claim they do. Can you imagine this - "Oh, god, I know you like me and you will help me to do good on this test but please do not help Bobby coz I want him to fail." WTF else would prayer in schools be about? I ask you honestly.

Screw the people and take the money seems exactly to be what is going on. The question at hand is how do you get rid of and replace Trump, or are you going to be content to let him do this? Personally I would like to see an administration that gave a crap about healthcare, real people, real jobs with benefits, living wages, and our water, air, and food supply. Trump is not going to do this and is working his best to tear it all down. Currently he wants to defund the Post Office because it seems plain that he is against ballots by mail. I suspect the ballots could be said by Trump to be the votes that came from 3 million fat women. At any rate, if this clown loses he is not going to leave and will put Barr into instant investigations that might go on forever if we buy it.

A lot of Trump's fight with China is over the billions of dollars plus 5G technology but most of us only get lies about it. There is a war for your mind and one to see who gets this greater technology. Of course, we have to watch it though because people are crossing our Southern border. This time they can cut through the Trump wall or continue to climb over.
The evolution of religion: Why belief systems are literally false and metaphorically true .
DenoPenno comments on Apr 19, 2020:
Is this like when Jesus returns riding that white horse in the sky and he has angels with him and they are ready for that last battle? Certainly this is a metaphor but the Evangelicals take it literally. I tell my religious friend this is impossible and he tells me that isn't what the scripture really meant. OK, what did it mean? The term "the heavens" and a place called heaven are different things. Why would you believe in the place called heaven if it has walls and a large pearly gate? Yes, even in heaven god is protecting you from enemies. Religion has evolved enough in my lifetime and I have witnessed a lot of it. Now will it please just evolve itself away into the myth that it is. Most of the other religions are becoming myth except for the Christians and Muslims. Nobody rose from the dead and nobody flew to heaven on a winged horse.

Of course I have many other reasons as well and one is taking things "by faith." Again, many of them come right back to things written inside that magic book.

**An explosion of recent research suggests that religious beliefs and behaviors are universal, arise from deep-seated cognitive mechanisms, and were favored by natural selection over human evolutionary history.** I stopped reading at the first sentence above. This is because I do not believe that woo and superstition were favored by natural selection. Instead I believe that they came out of a quest for knowledge and a desire to know what cannot be known. This is wrapped in the security blanket of universal religions. It means to me that all the atheist is doing is challenging those beliefs.

A friend of mine says "this will not help you with COVID-19" I never told him that any of it had anything to do with COVID-19. He only assumed so out of his own fear.

I believe they would think anything better than to force a default. The exception would be where property is involved and the people in control actually want your property.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 15, 2020:
This is nice of them but what about the chance that they also are spreading the virus? I'm curious if we have any reported shootings of those wearing masks? Especially if you are close to someone's property and wearing one at night. You might have been in fear for your life.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 15, 2020:
The article is too long but yet a true story. It is an example of believers getting something and running with it as far as they can. This type behavior is in their blood, but they made it all up just the same. In my lifetime we first had religious commentary on scripture. Later on this had to evolve into apologists because preachers and ministers needed an active person to back them. The religious continue to make things up.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 15, 2020:
Notice that this info comes from a comedy site. Even so, it would make Trumpy feel so damned important if it was true and it might make others vote for him. Not me. I got up this morning to find my $1200 was in my online banking account already. I'm keeping the money but ditching Trump.
What was your journey into becoming an Atheist/Agnostic?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 15, 2020:
With the ministry pushed at me from my teen years, I rebelled and got away from that idea but had a lifetime of much guilt and grief because of it. Many years went by with these bad feelings. Somewhere about 2011 or so I discovered Jerry DeWitt on You Tube. He seemed to be telling my story and then for the first time the "scales fell off my eyes" as the Buybull says about Saul of Tarsus. These days I am sort of a preacher in reverse and I operate on logic and evidence.
Is there a meaning to life and if there is, does it even matter?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 15, 2020:
A meaning to life. Let me see. The male got the female pregnant and the one who is born must make their own meaning to life. Along the way males just keep on making females pregnant and the females allow this because deep down they know they can change that male if they try.

The world is "only" 80,000 infections short of 2 million.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 14, 2020:
This is terrible and nothing we can do except shelter in place. The bad thing is that I've found 2 fake claims about the virus. 1. The first fake claim is from the show "It's Supernatural" where Sid Roth has a man on that claims god showed him all about it in great detail in a dream and it's a created virus by the Democrats to get rid of Donald Trump. 2. This second claim of 5G technology causing coronavirus is also to get rid of Trump and claims 5G is a direct virus cause for that purpose or it can weaken your immune system to where you get the infection. I suppose this came about because there are billions to be made in 5G and if America doesn't get the contracts then Huawei in China will. It's a shame in these tragic times that scammers spreading fake news will go this far to confuse everyone about a very serious worldwide infection. I find the too often COVID-19 WH updates to be equally as disturbing. Non-supported claims are made often.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 14, 2020:
Trumpers, smokers, and the religious are at the top of my list. Age doesn't bother me either way unless they have a stupid ridiculous laugh constantly going on. Going to the older ones I'm not getting off by talk that "my grandkid can beat up your grandkid" either. Even though I came out of religion I ended up smoking for right at 30 years. A non-smoker now for 20 years, I have to admit that cigarettes taste and smell repulsive. It would be damned hard for me to end up with a smoker or want to be involved with one.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 14, 2020:
Yes, the babble speaks of apostasy. As for "sinner" I remember a person who came to our church while I was a teenager. He had been in war and had killed people, but he really got into god and church. He could not forget his past and one day a good Christian found him drunk and crying outside the building. He was immediately told "you are nothing but a sinner and you will always be a sinner." Yes, I remember my church daze.
Shortest conversation ever through online dating
DenoPenno comments on Apr 14, 2020:
That man is about as ignorant as the Orange Trump god that he supports and serves. Also, am I "trading a liberty for benefits?" When you give up liberty and freedom you have no benefits. The National Socialist/Fascist regime is in power and in the WH as I type.** America is now in the worst recession since the Great Depression. **Much of this is possible because people fear Trump who has no idea what he is doing. I support your words and actions to Scott fully. He should have known better.

Nothing like a good Christian virus when you have a self loving good Christian POTUS. Let's start making money again. Trump thinks he can order this. LMAO.
Trump uses coronavirus to cliam 'total' authority.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 14, 2020:
The problem here is that Trump is "total" but he is not an authority. The buffoon thinks he is like a King or something.
