A lot of this is because your information is public. More so now than it ever has been. As for I believe it is related to this site. If you look at it you might find the same members. A test website? I'm sure there are all kinds of websites. I have this same user name in Facebook and I do it for a reason. I'm a political activist and both parties believe I am friendly to them and support them. Let them believe what they will. When you post it on the Internet you no longer own it and do not have control of it.

PA GOP Wants Death Certificate, Burial For Fertilized Eggs That Don’t Implant
DenoPenno comments on Dec 29, 2019:
I agree with your every word. If we want to go with this kind of GOP nonsense then we need to do the same thing every time a male ejaculates. This is nothing more than wanting a death certificate for a miscarriage. Best thing the ladies can do on this one is keep their mouths shut if they miscarry unless they are in hospital at the time.

Why do Christians get threatened and terrified by Atheists?
DenoPenno comments on Dec 28, 2019:
I think that deep down they all know it is BS. I read once of a believer killing his friend who was an atheist. To me this smacks of "how dare you tell me that my parents and grandparents were wrong about god." Non-belief upsets the apple cart. I want to believe. I was once on another site where the girl in question always thought it would be so nice if a god existed just like it said in the bible. She also wanted so badly to be married. When she quit the site she admitted she had went back to religion again and was marrying a believe. As for validity of Genesis I am always amazed that god wanted to destroy the people because of sin. What sort of sin is not stated but everyone thinks it was sexual. How could this be when god wanted to use incest to populate the earth - TWICE. This gets worse when apologists try to use the timeframe allowed to explain it was not incest and yet it is because of sin that we do not live so long today.

I hear from my brother frequently about how concerned he is I'm going to hell.
DenoPenno comments on Dec 27, 2019:
People fall for this because of indoctrination. People worried about an unknown part of you going to be burning forever in an unknown place need to back off and get a grip. When couples split because of this and one cries so much you see the big tears, there is usually a minister somewhere agging it on because his congregation once was both of you and he sees now that 1 is better than none. This would be about the money unless that minister is exceptionally stupid. Take that situation back to just you and your brother it shows that your brother remains indoctrinated.
I was having a conversation with a Christian friend about free will.
DenoPenno comments on Dec 27, 2019:
The big "free will argument" comes about because it is so important that you want to worship god of your own free will. I always heard that god could have robots or angels worship him but with humans it is their choice to do so. This is free will.This is why even the angels are looking into this area of humanity. Once you study enough the big question becomes who in their right mind would want to worship this ignorant tribal god? Why would anyone want to worship anything? On the other hand the murderer has free will to murder you just as you have free will to be murdered. There are no gods in that equation.

How do my fellow Atheists deal with depression?
DenoPenno comments on Dec 27, 2019:
I'm probably more depressed now than I was before. I take no meds for it, but just live with it. Nothing is real. We have the god myth and cartoon characters sell us insurance and other products and things. Movies make up entire histories of make believe situations they think we are so enamored with and they just keep going. The world you thought you knew is no longer there at all. Demands of logic and evidence show this as fact. Anxiety comes in and you cannot sleep more than 2 hours at a time but refuse to take meds for it because you have to know what is going on. I just deal with it and refuse to give in to demands of this new idiotic world. Therapy might help but most likely a therapist today would even recommend god. It's all a catch 22.

I pointed out that Obama is no longer in power and Mitch McConnell said early on that he would do everything he could to see that Obama was a one term president. So much for coddling and babying.

Study finds that children raised without religion show more empathy - anyone surprised?

Married to a JW
DenoPenno comments on Dec 24, 2019:
I have had Witness friends and my grandpa was a Baptist turned JW, but he never went to meetings. Much of the "worldly" religions today damn the hell out of this group and the main reason is that they do not believe in a soul. When you are dead you are dead.This is why the Evangelicals damn them because Evangelicals do believe in a soul. They think they die physically and then are instantly someplace else. I see your plight but do not know what to tell you. If your wife will stick with you just remain so that your daughter has the both of you. Will she do that? Will the group try to split you apart? If I did this and was in your place the biggest bother I would have is hearing the word "Jehovah" way, way too many times. Good luck.

DenoPenno comments on Dec 24, 2019:
They want to believe. To me, clapping and singing is not worshiping a god. What it really is is being a part of your chosen community. The honest believer knows this and still wants to tell you all the wonderful things his god is doing. My form of enlightenment to them is bringing out how many biblical things contradict each other. One such example is how mankind was sinful and god wanted to destroy them, so he did so by water and them wanted to re-populate the earth by incest a second time around. Such is the wisdom of god.

Do you approve capital punishment?
DenoPenno comments on Dec 23, 2019:
Here is what I know about capital punishment. If you put the person to death that killed those innocent people it is certain that the killer will never kill again. If you believe the killer can be rehabilitated you are probably mistaken. It is not a perfect system and yes, mistakes can be made. Most of them today come from cops or prosecutors who want to make a name for themselves.
It's all about DEATH, every one of the major religions are at their core - death cults.
DenoPenno comments on Dec 23, 2019:
Yes, it is all about death. Everything is so much better at or after death. Ideas of "rapture" come from the belief that in the "end times" your god will make sure that you do not have to go through all the stuff that everyone else goes through. So much nonsense coming from an insane book that almost did not make it into the bible. Yet, they believe it and tell you how wonderful it will be to be in heaven with god forever. It's all garbage. Some have now changed it to where god is the big spark and we are the little sparks. When your life is over you might get lucky and be sitting around the big spark forever. Please spare me. I do not want any part of this.

DenoPenno comments on Dec 23, 2019:
I live alone so gifts do not enter the picture. Even my children know not to buy gifts for me. I tell them to buy for their children instead. Normally we have a holiday dinner at one of the daughter's homes. This year it appears that is not going to happen because of stupidity and one's work schedule. I might stay home alone OR maybe I could look for a homeless person less fortunate and try and surprise them by buying them dinner.

DenoPenno comments on Dec 23, 2019:
I told a couple of door knockers that they could just sacrifice a goat for me and one of them spoke up quickly to say that didn't work any longer. He was serious. In the OT things were burned and sacrificed to god and it was even said of burned offerings that "god liked the smell." Is this where hell came from? The best I can say is that Jesus became the sacrifice in order to fully explain his death. Ignore the sarcasm. I studied to be a preacher but those Christians just keep on making it up.

I know it is not 1960 anymore but I'm not so sure I want to stick around and see how this all turns out.

This is why so many adults strain like crazy to do something that comes naturally. Stop putting a time on this bowel activity and jut live your life. You may end up healthier.
Afterlife thoughts... Do you believe in an afterlife?
DenoPenno comments on Dec 22, 2019:
The words might be in your head. I hear words especially if I am tired. No one is talking to me. They are just words like having something on in the background. We do so many repetitious things and often do have way too much on in the background for comfort, and even some to be able to sleep. You are hearing what you want to hear. Years ago my musician friend and I heard words coming out of his analog guitar amplifier. Very faint but they proved to be coming from the local radio station. Some people hear words due to dental work. Some people just want to hear something. Is there an afterlife? IDK and neither does anyone else. My belief in ghosts and the supernatural went out the door with my belief in gods.

Honest and good politics was on its way out for sometime, then it died fully in 2015. Trump supporters that I know want the craziest things and one in my family recently told me that the Dems "laughed at god." I laugh at his orange ass too. They seem to have a problem with America having "open borders" but forget that we have always (and still do) have them. This is because Trump is so great at getting things done. A recent thing his supporters have come back with is that they have to get rid of Obamacare. These people are insane. I'm not a Dem but I am no longer friends with some of them. I can't overlook the bullshit. Then I read recently where a woman ran down a 14 year old girl with her car because the girl was Hispanic. People won't even admit that Trump has caused this to happen, but they should lock that bitch up and throw away the key.

Most people do not know that the book as we have it today came about some 300 plus years after Jesus and it was arranged to seem as if it all told one continuing story. This actually explains the contradictions. Nobody was giving you a "roadmap" and there was no god trying to tell you something.

I'm a bit bemused, but since I was once a believer and intense bible study changed my mind, I'm still in the occasional bible discussion. I try to hold back and limit myself because so many of these go around in circles. Believers just do not give up. They have all sorts of nonsense to try and prove their god. The reality is that there is no proof either way. I simply deal with evidence and logic. Jesus was not raised up into the clouds and Mohammed did not fly to heaven on a winged horse.

Christ is not a name. It is a title. There may or may not have been a real Jesus that believers think their gospels were based on. Even if there was a real Jesus, Christmas has nothing to do with that person. The church decided in the fourth century to use December 25th as a birthday for Jesus. If these words are true and can be found using the Internet, it appears that you need a lot more education.
What is up with all these dumb questions about Christianity and Christmas from these Christians.
DenoPenno comments on Dec 19, 2019:
It's a money trap and a current political trap that came from Fox Noise and the GOP. Bill O'Reilly claimed there was a "war on Christmas" because people did not want you to say "Merry Christmas" any longer. Apparently it would be un-American to say "Happy Holidays" because this takes the holiday out of the Christian realm. Never mind that Bing Crosby sang a song named "Happy Holidays" in a movie in 1942. Meanwhile, a current meme in Facebook shows Eric and Laura Trump claiming that Donald Trump has brought back "Merry Christmas" again. It appears to be one of the great Trump accomplishments. What I want to know is when did it ever leave? Trumpers have swallowed it all hook, line, and sinker. As for celebrating this holiday I say do it as you will. If it brings your family together that is great. Only a select few continue today with ideas of Christmas being about Jesus.
The Argumentative Theory
DenoPenno comments on Dec 19, 2019:
Reasoning is indeed about convincing others when truth alone is not enough. In our current political situation I talk to others and spell out everything in detail. They all agree with my every word but in the end someone wants to be shown some evidence. If everyone agrees, what evidence is it that you want to see? Apparently their minds are made up already. In fact, Graham and a few others declare that they will not review any evidence because their minds are made up in advance. Then they have balls enough to make that same remark on those who want to impeach with claims that if it was not so impeachment would not be the current issue.

Justin Trudeau moves to ban gay conversion therapy all throughout Canada – DeadState
DenoPenno comments on Dec 18, 2019:
I call it good news but Christians have to believe in gay conversion therapy. This is because they know that gay people are trying to ensnare them constantly. This is their fear. It then becomes logical to them that it might work in reverse. The reason is that "their god can do anything." Hell yeah! They don't want it to rub off. Then you end up with that poor gay person of either sex who desperately wants to remain Christian when they should be running like hell in the opposite direction. Why would people live like this?

DenoPenno comments on Dec 18, 2019:
It always amazed me that Jesus was said to be "the first fruits of the dead" when anyone that studied the bible knew it was not true. We also know that Jesus himself and many others of the time believed the Jewish OT scriptures to be true. This gets you into discussions with believers who try to explain that others raised from the dead would not remain raised and would have to die again. This is an attempt to validate that scripture about Jesus. (I Corinthians 15:20.) Maybe they want you to believe that others had died and come back, but did not go to heaven and see god. Who knows? Remember that Lazarus never said anything about being dead. What about all of those people who came out of the tombs when Jesus was crucified? Maybe they went home and scared the crap out of their families and then one day they all dropped down dead again. Yes, god works in mysteriously hysterical ways.

DenoPenno comments on Dec 17, 2019:
It will be a total mess and the outcome is already decided by the GOP. Do we have hope then for the second impeachment in mid-year 2020? I'm in favor of a rule of law.

If Facebook Is Dealing with Deceptive ‘BL’ Network, It’s Not Working Snopes’ reporting ...
DenoPenno comments on Dec 17, 2019:
I did not know this but it does not surprise me. Facebook appears to now be allowing lies about our wonderful president in some agreement that Dump made with Zuck. You create your truth out of these lies. Yes, it is terrifying. I have posted for some time now that I want Facebook to stop showing me something I looked at on other pages and I'm telling others that Facebook will post your words about something even if it is out of context. Facebook posts off to the side what I have looked at and I told them to take it down. Why, they ask. Is it offensive? Is it hate speech? No, robot. It is just damned inappropriate! The fact that I looked at a car last week does not mean I am buying a car, nor does it mean I want to continue looking at this one. You also cannot "tempt me to buy" by continuing to show me things. Bug off!
"The Color Purple" premiered in New York City on this date in 1985.
DenoPenno comments on Dec 17, 2019:
I loved that movie. Good casting and acting for everyone involved. The film included my FB friend Rae Dawn Chong and was a showcase and big turning point for Oprah. Many thought Oprah was making a mistake in going for a talk show host after this film.
I was wondering why republicans do not recognize the bribery in the “perfect” call.
DenoPenno comments on Dec 17, 2019:
I see the point fully and I can discuss this with people who appear to agree with me fully, then they complain to me that nobody presented any evidence. Nobody gets it. Try discussing this with a Trumper and you get back "you mean what Joe Biden did?" Nobody gets it.
Democrats combine impeachment and collaboration with Trump [wsws.
DenoPenno comments on Dec 17, 2019:
If the CIA backs the Democrats it makes things easier for me when Trump calls them "scum." It must be part of the reality game for Trump as a fascist. I get more educated all the time.
What are your thoughts on home schooling?
DenoPenno comments on Dec 17, 2019:
I'm reading a lot of the pros and cons here and glad to see them. It means I can adjust my thinking on the subject. The big reason I need to do so is that in my area home schooling is done to prevent religious families from critical thinking. This way the kids will believe in creation. It also shows that they do not have fit teachers for the needed subjects.

N.J. bill to remove religion as reason to avoid vaccinating kids enrages parents at hearing -
DenoPenno comments on Dec 16, 2019:
**"Your right to practice religion freely does not include...exposing the community or a child to a communicable disease,” Weller said.** To me those words say it all. I'm also wondering what a belief in gods has to do with being an antivaxxer? It takes a special kind of stupid for this.
1 Million Moms, is freaking out over a commercial showing two people kissing
DenoPenno comments on Dec 16, 2019:
Here is where I take a different stance than most of you. My bottom line is that we do not need to see commercials with people kissing. I mean people of any gender. I get it and we all know what kissing is. It is not always so easy to avoid seeing people kissing, so why put this upon us? Most of us are smart enough to know what goes on and we do not need what some would say are instructions. Once we get into the LGBTQ movies and TV shows this takes on another direction entirely. In the film kissing might be important to what they are trying to say. If you do not have that point of view then do not watch the program. I watch "Batwoman" for example and Ruby Rose and her character are lesbian. This is not why I watch the show but I have a choice to not watch if that bothers me. OK, on a recap let's say you tune in to Hallmark and they are showing LGBTQ movies. Possibly they would have words or a soundbite to tell you what the content is. You know. Like a TV rating. I've already covered what people hate about the commercial, but isn't it likely that ads and programming would go together here? Guess what. Rather than set there dumbfounded and be offended you have the option to not watch and tune out. Change the channel and watch something else.

DenoPenno comments on Dec 16, 2019:
Well said here. I think I can agree with every word of this. Put that thinking into our current political situation and you have defined it very well. This is what Trump, the Mercers, Kochs, and DeVos are all about. Their brand of "white Christian" has defined everyone else. If you hear someone say "Trump is not hurting all those he needs to be hurting" you start to understand it. The white nationalist is in power and divine justice will fall on everyone. Your religion and politics become you. BTW, the word "sadist" does not have to be associated with sex. A sadist can get pleasure from poking your eye out or braking your arm. His pleasure does not have to be sexual pleasure.
Ever notice how The Wizard of Oz is basically about religion?
DenoPenno comments on Dec 16, 2019:
Today I notice what you are saying about the Wizard of Oz in every way. In fact, I often say that once you have seen behind the curtain you can no longer believe in the Wizard. I am talking religion, of course. The funny thing is that no one gets it. When I was younger and in church everyone loved this movie but no one got it. Not me or the others, and the film was shown in my area at least once a year. If you bring this up to Evangelicals in my area you might get arguments on it. This is most likely because they still do not get it.
What if I told you that the impeachment hearings are.

Ancient Aliens. Oh, my. What have I been missing?
My recovery from religion feels like a lifelong journey. Is it?
DenoPenno comments on Dec 15, 2019:
Religion and what it taught you would be the biggest reason I know of to explain your feelings of self loathing. Recovering could be a lifelong journey and you might need to talk to a therapist if you can afford one. Make sure it is a secular therapist if you do. If possible find a support group that you can identify with.

DenoPenno comments on Dec 15, 2019:
Huckabuck must really be worried about them. Maybe he should team up with Pat Robertson who thinks gay men have a special ring that they scratch you with to give you AIDS. I remember my younger days when it was said that the target of this crowd was children. It simple is not true.
