DenoPenno comments on Feb 27, 2020:
Really? Who would be more likely to obey rules that came from the Holy Goat? We forget that Barr claims he is religious. Maybe he thinks Donald is the Chosen One. That idea didn't work out too well for Jesus. As for Donald, it could not happen to a nicer man.

DenoPenno comments on Feb 24, 2020:
I'm almost as frantic over this as you are but if Trump wins again it will be because the Democrats are not sure just what to do and they continue to want "business as usual." That approach will not win them this election. It did not work last election and it will not work this time either. When you talk to Democrats they say "we need to win and we need to win big." Somewhere they are just losing me. They don't get it.

DenoPenno comments on Feb 23, 2020:
I stick with objective ideas because they are dealing with facts as we know them. Subjective is where you make something up and call it whatever you want it to be. "Rocky" might be just a rock but believers use this way of thinking to promote anything they like about their god.
I have seen weird things in the sky.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 23, 2020:
Truth is, people have seen strange objects in the sky as long as there have been people to record the events. I believe Constantine saw some of these also. It was reported that he saw a sign of the cross and heard words saying he would conquer in that sign. Look up and squint at the sun and you might see that sign too. I have seen strange objects also. I'm not just here making fun of others. It's just that I am not sure what I have witnessed.

In reality the zigzagging object would have been many miles away from us.

This feels like progress! []
DenoPenno comments on Feb 23, 2020:
Ah, yes. The teachers have a contract that should not be against Catholic moral values in any way. This is how the school is getting rid of the teachers. We must remember that just a few years ago it was believed that a person became a "gay teacher" just to be able to corrupt the students. In this case the students are reacting to events at the school very well, and this is indeed progress.

I agree with you. For the record here I do not wear hats. Several places I worked at tried to give us hats but I do not like them. A former boss who actually taught me computer in my home told a story once on coming over to teach me and there I was drunk with my hat on backwards. It's not true and I do not wear hats.
My mom's concern for me and my husband's atheism.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 22, 2020:
He drank the sinner's cup of punishment. She rants on and on. WTH is this? Your mom has a great delusion that most likely will always be with her. She thinks she is "saving" you but she will do everything she can to tear you and your husband apart. If she blames him for your atheism this is a very strong desire. Deep inside she may feel that once you are torn away from him you have no place to go but to Jesus. I would avoid confrontations with her and do not discuss beliefs with her.
Back in 2008 I started a group in my town called the paranormal society of Albuquerque.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 22, 2020:
Years ago I went ghost hunting with others and we drove the car to a cemetery way out in the boonies and got out to look around. Suddenly somebody seen something and cried out, then everyone ran for the car. Who knows what they saw but it was something by a tombstone. The driver flooded the car trying to start it and I was the last one inside before we drove away. Much later they told me I should admit that I saw something also because I was running too. It's true that I was running. I did not want to be left all alone in the boonies late at night with no place to go. What can you see late at night by tombstones in a cemetery? Almost anything but not very likely to be a ghost.
Has anyone any theories as to what is happening with the solar observatories?
DenoPenno comments on Feb 22, 2020:
What I find on it is that this was a sunspot observatory and it was shut down with suspected child pornography involvement from one of the employees. No arrests yet but computers, laptops, thumb drives, etc. have been removed and the same at the supposed suspect's home. There is some concern that the FBI is not telling everything, but what else would they be obligated to tell you? What else can the paranormal mind make up?
Several people I know who passed on .
DenoPenno comments on Feb 22, 2020:
I know nothing first hand on this but a man I went to school with claimed later in life that his sister was seeing and meeting dead relatives before she passed on. Everyone knew his sister was dying of cancer. Since she knew it also, my best guess is that her mind made this up for her in order to condition her. With a religious past she had to believe that she was going somewhere. I have my own stories of woo mostly from days that I believed in woo. These days I try to explain the experience rather than accept traditional woo that many do believe.
Just a thought I had from one that I dearly call 'friend'.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 22, 2020:
My religious friend is rational on most things. It's just that he has no rationality at all when it comes to Jesus. He even views world events by comparing them to what he finds in the book of Revelation. It never enters his mind that this biblical book was not the only choice when the bible was compiled and assembled. Some people have a near fit when they hear you tell them things like this. They want a bible that was present in Jesus time and not one that came about in the 4th century.

In her belief frame she is giving it her best shot by thinking ahead on the prospect that her wallet could be stolen. I hope it works for her. In my own true case of this sort I have a landline phone with a special message. After a few rings it goes to "I'm not home right now, but in case you are the burglar I think I hear myself coming back." Then it beeps for you to leave your recorded message. Maybe a thief will have heart and want to give her stuff back, or at least share it with her. IDK.
So I'm at work and I had a customer ask me if i was a lover of jesus.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 22, 2020:
I just Googled "evidence for deity" and got hits too stupid to even read. It's always the same old arguments and believers miss the reality of what caused them to believe in the first place. IF you actually found "deity" does that mean you should worship? Maybe your god was a runaway father. Are you bound to bow down to the Royals? Maybe you can make up your own mind. If I fall a distance and am left alive is it because of some god or better yet - because I am still alive. Which one better fits? In my workplace a deer hunting story is told and the deer escapes. The boss' son then says "god didn't want you to kill that deer" and listeners reply "he's a smart kid." WTF is that? It is not logic. If people use this way of thinking and they crapped their pants then god wanted them to crap their pants. This is all like "free will." You either have the free will to do something - or not! gods are not educating you or helping you.

Have you ever thought of religion and communism as not being that different?
DenoPenno comments on Feb 19, 2020:
I was always taught that early Christians tried communism according to the book of Acts but it did not work and they abandoned it. I suppose it was put to us that way so believers would continue to be against communism. Keep in mind this was in the days of Sputnik.

DenoPenno comments on Feb 19, 2020:
If everything is "better than you deserve" it is because bible believers know you are just a miserable sinner worthy of hellfire. I've heard the phrase and it is the kind of crap that a cult would use. It is also used by many Evangelicals.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 18, 2020:
Isn't it amazing now that Bloomberg is considering Hillary as a running mate. (I've heard this.) That should cause the same thing that happened last election. Business as usual people just do not learn. It looks like the powers that be are asking us if we want billionaire oligarchs running the show or billionaire fascists. Either way there is nothing here about us and we are back to the top 1 percent.
It amazes me, the deep indoctrination self- indoctrination I had growing up.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 18, 2020:
We are now in the day and time that believers have put their god in another dimension so you cannot touch him in any way. Not only would this prevent such a god from lifting the rock, it would also prevent us from knowing anything about him. Imagine 2 fish bowls with fish in one and god is in the other. Believers now claim their god can jump in and out of dimensions like jumping in and out of fish bowls and leave no evidence at all of doing it. Isn't that lovely. How did the believers ever come to this knowledge in the first place?

I copied this and it is worth re-printing. **No ifs, no buts, no devils no gods: I am a total Atheist.** As a one time believer who saw error in his ways, that pretty much does it for me.
It is an established fact that believers are deluded and liars.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 18, 2020:
Believers have to be liars because there simply is not any proof. I challenge god to heal all those at St. Jude of their cancer and I'm not even Catholic. Of course, I forgot that many of these children are there because of the sins of their fathers. God is so just and we cannot understand his ways. Many today think Trump has something to do with god and some have even wanted him to sign their bibles. If Trump lies do not make him just like Jesus, at least he can be "just like Cyrus." There is lots of delusion here. Anyone remember the 2 men during WW2 that were shooting at each other and one could not harm or kill the other because they were both Christian? I don't remember it either but it shows how complicated things are for god and how big his job is. Each side has a story to tell even though they are lying.
Bloomberg’s billions and the politics of oligarchy [wsws.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 18, 2020:
I see Bloomberg as a contemporary of Trump with a different agenda. As a nation we are now being asked if we want Trump Fascism and white power backed by the rich, or "business as usual" backed by the rich. I feel this is because the DNC will not give up and does not want anyone progressive in any way. The Clinton's largely control the DNC and there is plenty of proof that business as usual failed in the last election. They never learn because I hear rumors of Hillary wanting to run with Bloomberg. My advice is "please, don't."
I've been thinking about the higher age group of this site and I think I got it figured out a bit.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 18, 2020:
This sounds right to me. I'm an older man who came here from another site mostly because myself and a handful of others were the only ones who posted there. I am aware that this site was called a dating site and dating is possible, but I do not look at this site that way. I'm more than happy to find others of like mind. For me, being of like mind means being able to express why you do or do not believe something. I can do it because I came out of religion. It might be possible in any group to find those who are not gerbil eaters, but if you never ate gerbils in your past it seems very hollow. Many people in life are hollow with hollow beliefs.

This same thing is going on at our border with Mexico right now today.

Libertarians bought into the GOP and made this current nightmare possible. I'm for anyone who can get us out. Trump needs to leave by any means possible and as soon as possible. I would imagine that if this happens the person elected will have enough supporters to have a majority in both the House and the Senate. I would not vote for Trump even if somebody paid me.

In Europe mask wearing by Antifa and a few others was so they would not be recognized and arrested later because they were in a protest march. In America today mask wearing is to hide the fact that the wearers support our current regime. This in itself is scary and I believe it threatens us all.

I don't like any bitter truth about anybody. It seems that the Dems want to run on "business as usual" and this cost them the election last time. It more than likely will this time also. Trump asked the Ukrainian president what he did because he already knew in advance that Biden would be his main opposition. Both sides take money from our controllers and top money interests.

In our Reality TV POTUS world these people would not know "fake news" if it bit them on the ass. Oh, I forgot. This is all a problem of the dims.
How many of you have lied or decieved a potential employer about your being agnostic or atheist.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 12, 2020:
I don't use the word atheist at work because my corporation has a religious base. If it comes up I claim I used to be religious and studied for the ministry but today I am no longer religious. If asked "what happened" I give them a stern look and reply "I am no longer religious." That usually ends it.
Can sex overcome religion? You know what I mean!
DenoPenno comments on Feb 12, 2020:
Sex can usually overcome religion until the religious one gets in so deeply that they are almost brought to tears over prospects of some invisible part of you burning in an imaginary place forever. Paul said in the buybull that the believer might eventually convert the non-believer so this was all a good thing. The truth usually is that some zealous minister hears stories of what the couple thinks is happening in the relationship (and they are one sided stories) then that minister takes action to at least be able to keep one out of the two in his flock.
Incredibly, it seems to be so... There are Atheists who fear hell! []

I know it sounds strange but this is why FFRF was formed because it helps you to recover from religion. Some people "suffer" in or out of a religion while others do not.
What happened when you came out of the closet as an atheist?
DenoPenno comments on Feb 11, 2020:
My stepfather told me I was "going to split hell wide open" but otherwise we remained friends. My 2 daughters claimed they saw my viewpoint once I explained it to them but they each claimed they "still believe in their own way." That same belief they share is what made Christianity the muddled mess it is today.
I wish Christians would just be honest and say they have NO idea what happens when a person dies?
DenoPenno comments on Feb 11, 2020:
The only thing Pascal's Wager does is claim you have lost nothing if you live your life and follow teachings of a god even if you doubt the existence of such god. Believers in this concept forget or lay aside the fact that your all knowing god would know you were not totally sincere. They think this is an exercise of faith. Instead it is absolute stupidity. NO, Christians and atheists are not the same as to what happens when a person dies. If you die you are dead.
Is TV getting preachy again.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 11, 2020:
It all stands out to me. The preachiness is trying to sell to a market. Everything today is Reality TV and we know this has nothing to do with reality. This trend is why films like "God Is Not Dead" have made the movies. Some people eat this stuff up. Media today is in the "reality" market and that is sad. I watch TV shows like "Batwoman" for example because her lesbian character is not having numerous affairs all over the screen, so I can accept it that Batwoman is a lesbian. This does not bother me. It would if she was also some super religious freak at the same time. I do make fun of TV shows often and "Chicago PD" is one. I'm sure it is a good show but in jest I write sometimes that I am watching "Chcago Petey" re-runs.
I feel being raised heavily Christian made me afraid of intimacy. Anyone relate? : atheism
DenoPenno comments on Feb 11, 2020:
Maybe I understand this and maybe not. I'm not afraid of intimacy but I am not likely to share all my inner feelings on that subject with people I am intimate with. For one thing, intimacy is different than sex to me, but it may include sex - or it may not. I cannot look at sex as "making love." Sex is simply sex. While having sex you might be "making love" but it does not mean that I am. My mind has sex with the pinup model or the woman in Playboy that I can never have or hold. I'm not "making love" to them so I have a strange detachment of sex and love. They may go together, but for me they do not. I'm not sure if religion has made me this way but it is how I am. These beliefs might explain why my ex and I only lasted 12 years. They might also (if understood) explain to the haters why I do not "hate" her.

DenoPenno comments on Feb 11, 2020:
I'm an agnostic atheist. If you like, or want to quibble with words and their meanings, you may simply call me atheist. I'm not going to argue with you on what words mean or what someone else said they mean when the said meaning may not even apply to the writer. Years ago I met a man with a bad heart that told me his condition did not allow him much more time to live. He thanked god that he had learned the truth and was no longer in control of the "isms." It was the isms that blocked our senses from reality and really knowing god. This man cam out of Catholicism and he would tell you all about Mormonism, Hinduism, and all the other "isms." You simply could not be saved if you were connected to an ism. The irony is that I'm sure this man believed in baptism and he came out of Pentecostalism in his new found wisdom and belief. Yes, this is a true story! BTW, when you take the book definition of "agnostic" as the right approach you will always have believers trying to sway you to their side because they simply believe that you did not have enough right information. You also end up with things like "Agnostic Christians" which seems more than odd. "Well, I just do not know." OK, believer. How did you get this far? This reminds me of a child who does not want to eat his carrots.

Dating scammers on
DenoPenno comments on Feb 10, 2020:
Scammers are everywhere. They are here and I find them in other dating sites like Mingle 2. Usually they are fly by night people looking for a fast buck. However, I am followed by one woman in this sight from Puerto Rico and she just disappeared. Gone but her profile is still here. I think she joined the site, went to level 2, then just lost interest. You never know?

It's all lies and distraction anyway so what we need is Stormy with a copy of her canceled check and then we can see how many hoops Donnie jumps through to claim it is a fake.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 10, 2020:
I'm not sure I understand all your talking points. Maybe you should try understanding how things were in the Eisenhower years and then try again. Nobody is wanting anything "for free" or talking about pie in the sky. Slipping in the names of other politicians to discuss Bernie (or anyone) is an apples and oranges type distraction. I simply cannot be for any person that wants to cut Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid. Why? It is because we need these services and most of us have someone in our families that gets their basic support from these services. No, it is not free. We pay in a tax on these in our working lifetime. Can we afford to pay $6000 per month to keep a family member in a nursing home? I can't. Cuts to the system are already affecting lots of families. To believe that these continued cuts will not affect you and your loved ones is a bit lame. Setting up a 401K for such people at any age is a pipe dream. An honest person cannot declare that they want to see these services cut or taken away. The above is just ONE of my many objections to the the current regime and the powers that be. See! I have accurately discussed politics without naming those who are running for POTUS. Those who do not see my talking point are either rich or they are lying.
Years ago in Waller, Texas I discovered our indoor/outdoor cat dead one evening.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 10, 2020:
What I am attempting to tackle here is that when you see an apparition it is not because of energy that came from the deceased apparition. Existing evidence seems to show that the visual scene has instead come from within your own mind in some way. I have written this because on another site we had members who claimed the dead (animals and humans) do have spirits that hang around for a short time after their deaths. Some believe that a twinkly came and got them later like in the movie "Ghost" or that they just found "the light" and entered into it and went away. Leave spiritualism to the movies, but I find that many Christians believe this same thing. In the case of my one deceased wife, both my daughter and myself heard her moving around the house for days. She was cleaning, cooking, and doing the laundry. You could hear her but never could see her. We thought we were both going crazy but when you research this you find it quite normal. It was our minds that were not ready to let go. The dead are dead but this experience happens to many people who are not ready to let go of the loved one. This is why we have many spirit and ghost stories, mostly told by religious believers, but the phenomenon affects everyone. In the case offered here it was me myself that saw her beloved cat some 2 days after the cat was killed. In explaining my post I have now offered a second experience as well as my first.
