Where is the world going from here?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 13, 2020:
This virus will change many things forever but the religious will continue to believe their nonsense and think their invisible god got them through it all. As long as we have those who think the earth is only 6000 years old this will all continue. Once we get away from Evangelicals everyone else that believes will continue to think that bible stories tell us all about life even if they are allegories. The story of Passover is just one of these.
My brother died from this pandemic on march 27 at 4:59 PM in Everet Washington.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 12, 2020:
Sorry for your loss. Grieving is personal and does not have a timeline. Take as much time as you need and do not be pushed by others who want to define your grief. We are all different. I had a wife who died once and a boss who tried to tell me to "snap out of it." A few months later his own wife died in what was to have been a simple surgery. I think as I look back on all this it took me a few years to get back to normal again, if I ever did indeed get back to normal. Take all the time you need.

Strangely lots of people are going for this and believe it. I hear that soon you will be stopped coming out of stores you have shopped in to have your cart inspected to see if what you bought was "essential."
Esquire has an article by Charles P.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 12, 2020:
The desires of the current regime and those behind it are to get us all in control and have us all working for them. The current trend does not favor full-time employment as we had in the past. Instead there is some security in computer tech regions and almost zero security in other job markets that are mostly going part-time. This is because "we the people" have become the product. We will continue to produce for them if they give us all sorts of 5G gadgets and more. I've met people who claim they can have it all if they work 3 jobs. Some are trying it. This is Koch and Mercer insanity as currently administered through the Trump Administration. It cannot last and will not last but nobody knows how and when it will end.
Part of my indoctrination as a believer was that humans have souls and other creatures do not.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 12, 2020:
I do not think humans have souls, but rather I believe the bible saying that you became a living soul. All of us are living souls and we therefore can also become a dead soul. A "soul" is not something you have or possess, or was created or born with. It is not some magic invisible butterfly that instantly flies off to god when your body dies. You are the soul alive or dead. Thanks to Saul of Tarsus and a fear of dying this all got turned around and changed into utter nonsense. When you are dead you are dead. Now into modern believers claiming they have a soul and animals do not. This must be some statement against evolution because the believers think they are so much higher than the animals. They think they have souls and the animals do not, but spirit animals are all over the bible. In trying to answer your questions we have fear and cherry picking at their best and nobody facing reality. To go a step farther there are no gods and no heavens or Valhala.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 12, 2020:
All I know on this is that the Kochs, Mercers, and others like them spend enough money to keep us all from having essential services for everyone and that total amount spent would cover everyone. They waste billions on campaigns of hate and misinformation.

Why the broad disparity in death rates from COVID-19?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 11, 2020:
What I see is the USA as having the most infections because we listen the least. This is also why we have the highest number of deaths. As for percent of deaths most of the rest of the world has a lower healthcare technology. We do not lead in healthcare but we have better technologies generally speaking.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 11, 2020:
I can agree and I do a similar thing. As a former believer I often notice how people claim they can be "moral" without god. I'm not trying to be moral. Morality is most often guided by your societal structure and does not come from gods. Especially the one that tried to kill everybody.
I DECLARE I will choose reason over faith! I will focus on what can be demonstrated to be true.

I see videos of people praying to god to end the coronavirus.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 11, 2020:
Those wonderful Evangelicals know the answer to this one easily. God has so many different names and it is simply that all of these others do not know the true name of god. This is also how they justify the many different denominations. The JW's are sort of like this too. It also explains why your god hates the same things that you do.

Yes, it is Good Friday but it was not good. Not good for Jesus but maybe good for others. Aren't you so glad that somebody else died for you but you still have to die? WTF is that about. Poor Jesus had a bad weekend but woke up in a new glorified body he will have forever and it has scars, wounds, and holes in his hands forevermore. That doesn't sound right. I think he had holes in his feet too. This is all about as bad as the hole in Trump's head.

In the world of the Facebook religious many are claiming to pray their god delivers them, and they claim in nonsense and fear how much they love their god. We all know that Jesus might do something if you give enough thumbs up and likes, but maybe not until that happens. In the meantime just paint your door with lamb's blood so this all knowing deity with know to "passover" you.

I personally cannot tell you what others deserve as far as COVID-19 is concerned. I'm not a Boris Johnson fan but was actually hoping he would recover. I cannot say I would have this same hope if the infection hit his American look alike. Again, I cannot tell you what other people deserve. Some of us just have different hopes.
If a church holds services and a person get covid an dies can the family sue for wrongful death or ...
DenoPenno comments on Apr 10, 2020:
First to understand is that anyone can sue for any reason. It happens all the time. Can a family sue a church if a person went to a service and got covid? The person who got covid went voluntarily I suppose. Proving just when and where they got this infection would be hard to do. Maybe impossible. Can they sue the pastor? You can always sue somebody but the real issue here is does the church actually own the building. If not and they pay a landlord it would be in his best interest to lock and bar the doors in these bad times of covid so that he, the landlord, could not be sued later.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 10, 2020:
Self isolation is a choice. I was practicing it way before the virus threat came roaring onto the scene. I agree with KKGator in that the best we can do is hope to influence others. We do not always get what we want.
Oh shit, I should've it would too good to be true.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 10, 2020:
I think the Evangeloons ignore the real facts and cherry pick the bible and world events. Very often they are trying to line them up together and view world events as current history. Is a pink moon a blood moon, and is there really going to be a "falling away" caused by some world political leader who has supernatural powers? If you have to have "a mark" in order to buy and sell is that mark your social security number? Is the Devil really Jesus' brother like a Mormon told me? Did we all come from planet Kolob? In my mind the "falling away" came from critical thinking skills and not someone who deceived us. Deceit came through religion.
I was raised as a Christian and only recently became an atheist.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 10, 2020:
Instead of this approach try teaching your young children critical thinking. Do this through biblical talk as well as other ways. Trying to turn them is going to come back and bite you in the ass. Critical thinking religiously might involve asking them if certain things in the bible have ever happened before, and if they think it might happen again. Examples would be talking snakes, talking donkeys, bones of a prophet bringing the dead back to life, people unharmed inside a fiery furnace, etc. this approach can be a sort of bible study. In the end your children will have to make up their own minds. When I look back it was really my parents who decided I was going to be the greatest evangelist who ever lived. They did this after I showed an interest in god and religion. I'm sure this is a factor in my becoming atheist later on. It was a belief in nonsense that finally got me into real critical thinking. This happened because I investigated. Teach young children how to investigate.

The shocking confessions of a naturopathic doctor
DenoPenno comments on Apr 9, 2020:
Quacks are out there but keep in mind that the FDA seems to owe a lot to those who have spent millions to prefect a new medication. That tells me plenty. I'm also old enough to remember remedies that worked until the FDA came along and ruined them. This ruination consisted of cutting down on the active ingredients and just as often made you have to have a doctor's prescription to get the product. God forbid that anyone practice medicine without a license.

As US Consigns Iranians to Death, Corporate Media Look the Other Way | FAIR
DenoPenno comments on Apr 9, 2020:
This goes a bit deeper in that I was formerly able to watch Iranian news on their official English channel and now it seems that something is blocking that channel. It loads but is not watchable. Ignoring the certificate qualifications does not solve this problem. As this worldwide mess continues I look for other channels and steams to be blocked as well. Can't prove it yet, but it certainly looks this way. If you hate Iran maybe you don't remember it under the late Shah very well.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 9, 2020:
I agree with you fully. With the religious it is happening because they have to know more than you do and they think they have all the facts. Their god hates the same things that they do. Different congregations of them focus on different things as "their truth." Yes, they cherry pick the bible.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 9, 2020:
These true Christians might be like true Scotsmen. It is the logic of this pastor that "proves" true Christians died for their faith close to 2000 years ago. The big problem at that time is Jesus and his followers were mostly Jewish. True believers had not invented the Christian yet. LOL

DenoPenno comments on Apr 8, 2020:
I understand your vent but your friend most likely feels that her religion calls for her to "save and convert you" because that's what religions do. It means she doesn't want you to die and we have to admit the religious think they have all the answers. They are also the most fearful. Let's take another look where the lord worshiper and singer wants to "sing hymns to the lord to save us." Now suppose that this idea could work and here you all are in heaven later singing praises to this lord forever and ever. I would not be happy and the lord must be a narcissistic bastard. Maybe he would even call CNN "fake news."

Who avoids discussing religion and spirituality?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 8, 2020:
I can agree with your every word. One of my long time friends that I met around age 12 or 13 remains religious and recently he was talking to me on how he is so comforted by reading in Daniel about the fiery furnace and those inside unhurt and untouched. I'm thinking it is time for that eye roll again. My mind asks how would anyone ever take this as being real in any way. I suppose it represents his belief that Jesus protects him. Again, my mind asks "in what way, and protection from what?" (Yes, friends. I attribute my well being to a doodilly do, or you can call it whatever you want to.) Meanwhile in FB again I find that Jesus and the Devil are arm wrestling and the ones that post it claim only true believers will re-post this on their page. Many of us forget that Jesus will do something for you but only after he gets enough likes and thumbs up. I think I was born into the wrong world but I do remember being one of these years ago.
Well sure.

Here’s my conundrum about Easter and Passover.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 7, 2020:
Jesus claimed that he would not change "one jot or tittle" of the law. Modern believers claim that he abolished or "fulfilled" the law by his death and resurrection. Maybe they forgot that he was Jewish and not Baptist or Pentecostal. This is what now sets us free. His glorious sacrifice of himself. Let's try a new look. They wanted to explain why Jesus died. As for Easter and Passover keep in mind that these are religious holidays and they change from year to year on any known calender. This is a solid fact. Now tell me when Jesus died. What year was it? We have no idea when Jesus was born or when he died but believers will fight you tooth and nail and claim you are lying. In this time of COVID-19 it might be wise to put a little lamb's blood on your door post anyway.

There are plenty of them in there.
CNN Host To Pastor: How Is It 'Pro-Life' To Pack People Into Church Amid Pandemic?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 6, 2020:
Christians are stubborn to the end. The way they approach this pandemic is like they approach their persecution. They believe they are persecuted because their book says they will be. They remain stubborn in ways that brings on the persecution, especially in other countries. In this time of COVID-19 they claim the right to worship freely because if you limit their worship it is persecution to them. Let's go a step further and also call it stupidity.

Because it is not normal. He is promoting hatred and fear.

God cannot be proven either way. Does or does not a god exist. No proof and nobody knows. As for me I'm an agnostic atheist.

I stand my ground that there is no proof of any gods and if you have proof then you must present it. This has never been done with gods of any kind, and yes, this includes the Christian god.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 5, 2020:
I have not watched it but I can identify. My opinion is that we have these type communities and others like Mormonism extremes that people claim we should avoid and yet, our population at large wants us all to be religious and "founded on religion" but it simply is not true. My religious friend now goes to a Baptist church where I'm sure he does not fall on the floor and flop around speaking in tongues but yet he thinks he is "right." He agrees with me on Evangelicals but that is where he came from. His opinions still have that typical Evangelical bias in almost every area. Religious evolution is often very slow and the current American regime wants to stop it and highjack religion to use against us. The new "cult" wants us to believe freedom of religion is why we came here and stop or prevent anything involving women or religious freedom.
This landed on me today.

I'm beginning to think we can view SARS-CO-2 which we call COVID-19 as a mutation maybe. I don't know and I'm not a scientist but this might mean SARS has returned and it is very scary. We need to take this very seriously because I'm not so sure we know very much about it yet and it is killing us.

OMG! Ate up, ate up. I only knew one of the ones who made me because I never did meet my real father. At least, not that I know of. Talking to god is not necessarily a good idea. Too many people already have voices in their heads. I can't believe that she wants you to talk to her god and then dictates what she wants you to tell him. My best guess is that she would feel so much better if both of you thought and believed the same. I have news! Both of you are different and separate people so this last one is impossible. It will never happen. How would you ever know if 2 people felt or believed the same? All you would know is that they seemed to band together in social settings.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 4, 2020:
True. I don't see that the United States has helped one country yet with COVID-19. I'm still trying to figure out the Zumwalt destroyers part and I assume the captain who was relieved of his duties really wanted medical attention for his men. The Trump Pentagon makes it sound as if he gave out some strategic information that could jeopardize a peaceful mission or something. What I see in jeopardy is the future of a man who doesn't even have the ability to read a script the same way twice. The often COVID-19 updates that have so much conflicting information are an ego outreach of Trump's weekend rallies that he cannot do right now.

Who was Christ? Isn't this just a title? It is hard for me to hate a forever mythical personage just because someone declared that he was god. There are many different gods. I have studied the bible and read it through. The problem is that the older I got the more I discovered that I do not believe in any of these gods.
Its about time for the President's Press Cartoon.
DenoPenno comments on Apr 3, 2020:
Trump does this repeatedly as a "COVID-19" update but what is really going on is a substitute for his many rallies that he wants to do so badly. This is why Trump and the team contradict each other even in one broadcast update. It's almost hilarious. The problem is that lives are at stake. This morning on Dave Weinbaum's talk show I heard how it's the Democrats now putting out this false info about Trump and because of it he can't do his job. Surprise! He is not doing a good job. He can't stop lying even in these updates. Then Dave says he thinks this will all peak or blow over in the next 10 days. Surprise again! The virus will not peak in all areas at one time. This is just common sense and it could go on for many months. The last thing I heard this morning is that they want a "cure" and think we are going to get one. Let me know how that is working. Do we have cures for the common cold, flu, or SARS? No, but we have vaccines for them. If I get a yearly flu shot will it help me or not? This is all 50/50 but I take the gamble because I don't want the flu. There is so much that we do not know but SARS-CO-2 is COVID-19. It does not matter where or how this variant came into being except in the fact of trying to control it. Like the others, it will also mutate.

This song describes it for many of us. I view COVID-19 as the beginning of the New World Order. There is nothing about it that is religious but those behind it will use the religious to their own advantage. The outcome is more control and less freedom. You and I will have less freedom.
This is how a church should be. Your thoughts?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 3, 2020:
Glad you got something out of it and got to see old friends. As for me, the farther away from a church I am the better off I am. Farther along we'll know all about it Farther along we'll understand why Cheer up my brother live in the sunshine We'll understand it all by and by The old song is true. I no longer go to church because I am farther along than before. I no longer have a candle or a little light that is mine.
Spring allergies, a cold or COVID-19?
DenoPenno comments on Apr 3, 2020:
Thanks for your posting. This should help many of us because I think we are in times where we ask ourselves "do I have Covid-19." Probably not, but at least we remain aware. Sorry for your suffering.

These days I'm rejected by everybody. Many agree with me and I make some laugh but that's about as far as it goes. Maybe they know that I will no longer fly around the world for you or move into some place that I really cannot afford. It's hard to find people who deal honestly and have common sense.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 2, 2020:
I agree with your every word here, Jim. As usual my Texas relative posted in Facebook today about how it was wrong for everyone to hope that Trump failed. In defense of her hero she immediately started talking about everyone else. I'm gonna remember that if I ever have to defend my mother. Just start talking about other women.

If it does not fit for Cult45 Republicans they will not believe it at all. I had a relative by marriage post of my Facebook page that my words there were "fake, fake, fake, fake." **I had to reply that my words came from news sites and news videos all over the world while her information is straight out of Cult 45. ** It amazes me that so many Americans fall for political party untruth to the extent of wanting to call the coronavirus a "Democratic hoax." To believe that you have to be dumb enough to imagine American party politics influenced the entire world and everyone went along with it. Where are the dead coming from? Are they all crisis actors?

DenoPenno comments on Apr 1, 2020:
Sounds good to me but from what I saw on the news today police in the UK might not like that sort of situation. If you were doing this in the UK they would tell you it was not right and order you to leave and get back indoors. Even walks in deserted places are not allowed now. I'm not from the UK. I just watch news from all over the world.

DenoPenno comments on Apr 1, 2020:
Your wishes matter the most in this situation and I would be angry as a hornet to be prayed over just to make them happy. If they refused and prayed anyway, or prayed out loud, I would start cussing and ask them to please leave the room. I'm serious here.

Not my thing but if it works for you that's fine. My newest prospective dating scammer wants to do texting and hangouts. I tell her that real people can talk on the phone and her reply was that "we had to get to know each other first." I think that is where I stopped, but good luck to you.

Pastor of Tampa church that held two large Sunday services arrested, jailed [tampabay.com]
DenoPenno comments on Mar 30, 2020:
To defend this pastor we all know that god is in charge of everything but he had no idea that the devil would go this far. Also, Jesus said in the book of Mark that his followers could drink poison and it would not hurt them. The logic here is why would you be afraid of a little old coronavirus? Keep in mind politically that the virus has to be a "Democratic hoax." This means that you are so stupid that you believe American political parties actually orchestrate and control what is going on all over the world right now. Hey, I think I just explained the cult of Trump 45.

If you need masks and you can't wait, order furnace filters with a MERV rating of at least 10.
DenoPenno comments on Mar 29, 2020:
At this point I'm not into masks. Trump wants to end this thing by Easter and he doesn't know that you cannot tell the virus what to do. It tells you. Beyond this I'm not finding many people who know much of anything about this. Is it just another "flu varient" or is it much worse? Who knows? I've read a report that says it could flatten out in the next 2 months and also claims it could take over a year.
