Suicide Epidemic Has Swept Across American West – Rolling Stone
DenoPenno comments on May 31, 2019:
Lingle says he could not take the anxiety and depression any longer and that his lottery tickets were not winning. The author downplays the part on the lottery tickets. i don't think he should have. Our lifestyles today create both anxiety and depression. We are told that we should win and that we will win. Everything is pushed at us in this manner today. It should be plain that not everyone will win. Things like this happen in a world where we have become the product. Then we have drugs both legal and illegal. On TV you find constantly that drug companies are being sued because of wronghful death. On the illegal end of this we see that everyone wants that higher high. Drug makers are adding Fentanyl and causes overdose and death for many. Look at the wrong thinking our society is creating. It's all about money. The love of money.
Georgia church hires woman to make contact with the dead | Barry Duke
DenoPenno comments on May 31, 2019:
Yes, it is total bullshit. I seldom do bible quotes but here is one. Ecclesiastes 9:5 explains it all. It plainly says that **the dead do not know anything.** The most likely reason is that they are dead. That makes sense to me. Bible believing supernaturalists have another take however. They seem to follow Paul.

DenoPenno comments on May 30, 2019:
You have only been a non-believer for about 2 years so getting frightened and going back to "prayer mode" is a form of protection. Not that it ever worked, but you thought it worked and that was why you did it in the first place. As for voices, I would not be worried unless you have some sort of ongoing dialog that involves other voices. In other words, if you hear voices and it appears you are carrying on a conversation of some sort. Prayer is not like that. If we flip TV channels or run through radio stations we hear voices. Being tired and hearing such things in your head can be normal and fixed by simply getting a little sleep. If you have an "invisible friend" or your neighbors dog is telling you to kill people you have a real problem. I'm not sure that having Schizophrenia in the family is a real reason to worry about anything. I know such a family and only one person in that family has it. This is the best the family members themselves can figure out looking back on their history.

Trump's goons are now trying to go after the people who discovered his corruption
DenoPenno comments on May 29, 2019:
A lot of things that TRump and crew are upset about here fell into the realm of FBI and other departments to investigate. This got going well with the "Steele Dosier." Look it up as this is involved and came from British intelligent groups. No, Hillary did not "pay for it" as some claim. Her and Obama were aware of it along with many others. Trump is pushing on past the 2 year mark now still blaming Obama and Hillary for anything that he can. When will he shut the hell up and do something? He now has Barr into investigating the investigators and Barr has found an attorney in New York to take this up. Yes, the attorney is a Republican. Could we expect Barr to choose one who was a Democrat or simply had no party affiliation? Probably not. Reality America politics today - As The Stomach Churns!

DenoPenno comments on May 29, 2019:
He won the election but he still thinks Hillary should not have had 3 million more votes than he did. Those votes became the 3 million illegals and Trump wanted it investigated. Later on as women marched on Washington the votes became the votes of 3 million fat women. Any normal person would think that if you won it means you won and this is over now. Not Trump. He is thinking up new stuff again on this 3 million votes because it seems to be eating him alive! Of course, that is only one subject. Look around and you will find sooo much else that trump is worrying his little brain about. He Tweets at 3 AM. I don't and I'm also not sending e-mail or chatting at that time either. Poor Donnie. The job has too much stress for him. Recently he has said that he will not play unless the others do it his way.
What if Jesus DOESN'T love you? What if he's sick and tired of your bullshit?
DenoPenno comments on May 29, 2019:
I remember little children singing "yes, Jesus loves me" but nobody quoted a verse for that. They just wrote a song instead. My stepdad always said "Jesus loved you this much" and he held his arms out as if he was crucified. The argument here is whether nails through his hands would have held him on the cross. Later in pictures and movies we see that Jesus has nailed hands and he also has ropes around his wrists to hold him up. Believers will do anything to put Jesus on the cross. Catholics are good at leaving him there.

DenoPenno comments on May 29, 2019:
The only ones I'm angry at are my parents and others who convinced me that the religious nonsense was true in the first place. They didn't know, and actually they might have been scared. I'm sure they wondered what happened to you after death. Not that we should want to die, but people are very much afraid of dying. If I try to study philosophy and other religions does that change the fact that gods have never written anything for you? If I follow the bible into 300 AD and see how it was decided what to put together and why, I've learned a lot.Then we get into that New Testament with 2 thirds of it's writings credited to a man who never met or never knew Jesus. Bible study takes you right out of the ministry and Christianity. BTW, "early church contemporaries" were not that at all. They fall in there somewhere at the 300 AD mark or just beyond.

Here are Evangelical Christianity’s 10 biggest gaslighting tactics
DenoPenno comments on May 29, 2019:
All true. Isn't it so wonderful that your religion becomes a "relationship." What this means is you can lie and tell your friends how much you talk to invisible Jesus and invisible god and how much they talk back. I know a man who says he talks to Jesus this way every day and "Jesus talks back." The thing is, I would not want such a person in positions of power. You never know what his Jesus might tell him. If this was not your religion you would be locked up somewhere.

‘They Came to Kill.’ Almost 5 Die Daily at Hands of Rio Police
DenoPenno comments on May 28, 2019:
It gets very personal when you go to Dallas, Texas for the idiotic killing of a black man shot inside his own apartment. Amber Guyger is the former police officer who did the killing and media has went so far as to say "she shot and killed her neighbor." What a crock! Supposedly she claimed to have thought this man was in her apartment and they live on separate floors. How would that make them neighbors? At the current time a judge has put a gag order on this case until after the trial. This will and does include the media.
Lest we forget. Things were better before Trump. Happy Memorial Day!

Of course this depended on where they were as compared to the direct blast area. Others that lived just slowly got sick while some had immediate radiation sickness beyond repair. It took a while for them to figure it out. This was strange because I was told we dropped flyers in advance.

DenoPenno comments on May 27, 2019:
King James did not "make the bible." You need to study how the books we know today came into acceptance and when this happened. It was 300 plus years after Jesus and three quarters of the NT was written by a man who never knew or even met Jesus. Josephus was not even a contemporary of Jesus and the "early church fathers" were people who were joustling for power during the time of Constantine.
Gotta love it when your religious parents give you this as a 20 year old.

Does anyone else get multitudes of spam phone calls from foreign countries?
DenoPenno comments on May 27, 2019:
I get these daily but not on the same scale you do, I also have a regular cell line that is NOT associated with my name in any way. That doesn't stop them. My calls started coming in in 2015 and have increased ever since, some even going on into my Spectrum landline. I get AI phone calls so clever that you would swear it is a real person. What messes them up totally is giving all the wrong answers. The AI gets confused and hangs up. One that I get more and more is similar to "this is Eric calling you on a recorded secure line to talk about" - fill in the blank here because there are so many. It's also at this point that the caller hangs up.Someone wants to know if your number is real and active. It also appears that the call is trying to direct you to say certain words like "yes." I can only assume this is for future patch work in which they can splice something together to prove you told them they could steal your money. Some of these callers ask you outright if you can hear them alright. You know they want to hear you say "yes." Confuse them and confuse the AI. Just say "no, there's a buzzing on the line. They hang up instantly. These things happen because we have become the product and so many others want our money.

I believe that Trump does indeed believe that if you say something over and over again others will believe you. He says this in his ghosted book "Art of the Steal" and claims you only have to say it 3 times. After that you are not on your way back to Kansas, but you have gained a base of followers who are so glad that you have given them reasons for their hatred and they can now make it vocal for everyone. It is because of Donald Trump that these people now can openly hate you. Meanwhile, the stable genius goes on to Tweet bad things about Joe Bidan. That's right. I said "Bidan." Look up the tweet.

AS SIMULATIONS BECOME MORE AND MORE REAL IS IT POSSIBLE THAT WE ARE IN A SIMULATION RIGHT NOW? This is how it starts folks. Looks to me like the first thing we have to proven is whether the simulation itself is able to think. This seems doubtful. It appears to me that the only ones capable of thinking are the humans who produced the simulation and that they themselves are not thinking very well. The only thing I see that comes even close to ideas of ancestor simulation is the diehard belief that mankind has in gods.

Light a match and see the fire, then blow out the match. Did the fire go anywhere? No. It was simply a chemical reaction in the first place. One problem is that we dream and we do not understand sleep. We can do anything in dreams so therefore it is easy for mankind to imagine that they have a "soul." This is silly. You do not have anything except for life. Even in the Buybull it says you "became a living soul." I can only assume you can also be a dead soul as well. At this point all of the believers enter in and start lying to you. They just keep making it up.

There is simply no evidence regardless of how hard someone wants to believe. In fact, I think people want to believe because deep inside us we want to belong.

My clear evidence that humans invent gods is that spirit beings cannot and do not write books. They also do not dictate to you as you are in trance or dream state. Spirit beings have nothing to do with it. You got to trance state because you put yourself into a trance personally or with help of another physical being. You got to dream state because you have to sleep and even in sleep parts of the brain are awake. Yes, spirit beings cannot write on their own. They also do not scratch or bite. They have no hands, claws, or teeth. If summoned up they come from your mind or maybe your backside. But wait, so say. You haven't tried my spirit being. Why would I have to? Why would another one be any different?
Just dyed my hair blue.. You like :) This is in the day light so.. How about now

I could get used to it. Two people at my work wondered why I dyed my hair black again. I told them I was tired of looking in the mirror and seeing my great grandpappy. :)
NJ signs on to Death with Dignity
DenoPenno comments on May 21, 2019:
It is your life. You can either live it or terminate it. If in pain you might want termination. A big problem here is getting the invisible man out of your birth and death story so that you might proceed.
Death with Dignity – endoflifeWA program. . []
DenoPenno comments on May 21, 2019:
When I told people that run the local funeral home that I was going to be cremated one of them came back at me saying he believed in death with dignity. My response was that death has no dignity.
Who was Jesus ?
DenoPenno comments on May 20, 2019:
You might be right. Also, Jesus of the bible might have come from legends of more than one man. Who was Jesus? Bible aside we have no evidence to ever know. We have no clues of his birth or death that are reliable. Just stories.
My daughter's science teacher believes in God, magic etc.
DenoPenno comments on May 20, 2019:
I don't blame her a bit. The guy is a modern nut case but up until the age of about 35 or so I thought just like him. It was much later that I learned critical thinking and the fact that it is OK to not know something.
Any new shows that I and my family can get into?

Another scientific mystery. Dark matter? []
DenoPenno comments on May 20, 2019:
I think it is dark matter because we know it is there but we are unable to see it. This makes it hard for us to figure out exactly what it does and that is part of the mystery.

DenoPenno comments on May 20, 2019:
I agree with you and I know that both parties play a role in this. People think I am ignorant for being on Facebook but my purpose there has nothing to do with likes or thumbs up. Many postings there are from other areas of media and the memes and words are to get responses to and about public issues in many ways - sales and politics being but a few. In the past I have successfully pushed ideas until someone picked it up as a slogan. That's why I am there.
All Your Favorite HGTV Shows Are Totally Fake
DenoPenno comments on May 20, 2019:
Too much TV is in the format of "reality TV." The trouble is that there is no reality to it. Pawn shop shows and Naked and Afraid fall into these categories as well. A friend of mine went to Vegas and was told not to photograph the items in a certain area because they were going to be used for the next season of the pawn shop show. Then the old man died and we have no show. One of the others is doing Lifelock on TV and also works in Vegas clubs. Things like the above are why I am more into Retro TV and similar shows. They were scripted too but they never pretended to be real and they never asked you to believe that they were real.
Matt Nelson Knows Exactly How to Convert Atheists | Roll to Disbelieve: Another Christian Thinks ...
DenoPenno comments on May 20, 2019:
How to convert atheists? It was my intense study of the bible that caused me to become atheist. The book is one book out of many that doesn't hold up in it's claims or origins, and it has too late of an arrival on the scene. So called contemporaries are not contemporaries at all along with other bogus claims, but let us suppose for a moment that you do believe it. The next hurdle is to get past the idea that your book and system is right while all the others are wrong. If we pass that step we will next have to figure out why there are so damned many sects and denominations. Of course, if anything pisses you off you can simply go somewhere and start your own denomination. Why not? Everyone else does. OK, that was Religion 101. It bypasses the many countless discussions you can have for hours that in the end do not prove god. Any questions? This is why I am atheist. God did not kill my father, cost my marriage, or cause me to lose anything. I am not angry with a being that I have come to find out is mythical to start with. Proof for your god goes back into those many countless discussions that really prove nothing. If I have anger on this issue at all it revolves around gullibility.
Why Donald J Trump will win in 2020.
DenoPenno comments on May 19, 2019:
The Dems cannot get organized and have 23 or more running. They also need to come out strongly and appear on Fox News, then also call Trump's China tariffs (that America will pay for) the "Trump Tax." Why not? Trump makes up things and so do most of the GOP. Call this tariff and others the "Trump Tax." That might get through to a few people. Not everyone can see it. A man at my work got so riled on this that he had to excuse himself and leave the building because of his "great desire to do me physical harm." His stand is that this is Trump's way of bringing jobs back to America. The higher prices will cause us to pay so much money that manufacturing will be taken up again in our country at a profit. What a crock! What utter nonsense!
I love my city.
DenoPenno comments on May 19, 2019:
Maybe they are warning Trump to stay away in advance.
Are we (progressives) giving Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez too much praise?
DenoPenno comments on May 19, 2019:
I like her a lot. I think Ocasio will give the GOP something to lie about for a long time to come. On Fridays I tune in to conservative talk radio and hear the strangest things about her. Some of it is so funny that you do not want to be drinking anything while you listen. When it comes to AOC they just keep on making it up.

DenoPenno comments on May 19, 2019:
Number 2 on the list is good. I'm always having others tell me about my atheism in one way or another and their words lead right into a stacked deck of questions. Most of these have a pre-determined answer without any thought on what they are saying. This makes them easy to refute. Not so long ago a man insisted that my non-belief put me in "denial."
Republican fundraising mailer looks like a U.S. Census Survey
DenoPenno comments on May 19, 2019:
They either took a chance on a response from me or they might have actually found my past record with the party from years ago. I find the questions they are asking to be total nonsense and it gets registered as spam.
