Here's another scam thought for you on the primary.
DenoPenno comments on Mar 2, 2020:
In my opinion what is happening is that the DNC is insistent on "business as usual" and they do not like anything or anybody who is progressive. Obama even warned us all to avoid things progressive. Isn't that just wonderful. It worked out great in the last election. So now, we have Mayor Pete and others dropping out. What these candidates would hope for is that someone actually getting the nomination would keep them in mind for some office and appointment and they could stir their supporters towards the stronger candidate. There we go. Business as usual again. (Hello, Trump. Welcome back..) The tide has turned slightly with Bloomberg in the race. To me it means that we have to acknowledge that money is behind all of this and "we the people" are now being offered a choice of which type of oligarchy we want to control us. Whatever happens we are still the product. I think many of us know this deep down and that fact is at the base of a lot of the anger that I see. Our "rulers" cannot be honest with us and we know it but we cannot admit it.
What do you suppose gives rise to and supports belief in God?
DenoPenno comments on Mar 1, 2020:
If you cannot explain it and it also perplexes you in some way, then god did it. Apply the same in some way for your personal situation as it unfolds daily and god does it. People do this because they search for answers and have to have answers. In my personal daily experiences everything works out for me. This is because my mind is working in the background wanting things to work out and I am actively doing this. A person does this without being aware of it but some use it as a claim (and proof) of a god. Common sense says it is hard to imagine a god who allows you to prosper from any endeavor including a yard sale. Oh, yes! God is watching out for me. Does any of this happen to other people? Yes, but in different ways because they are themselves while you are you. Therefore our journeys get personalized and we all have different wonders to tell.

DenoPenno comments on Feb 28, 2020:
Christians want you to believe that Jesus was whipped nearly to death before he had to carry a heavy cross to be crucified on. Jesus was in such bad shape that from the scourging that someone else had to carry the cross for him. (Notice that if you are a believer and have faith Jesus is carrying your cross for you. This is a bible lesson that comes later.) Also, they would break the legs of the crucified in order for them to not be able to breath on the cross or stake and they would hang there and die. Jesus did not have his legs broken and he died very quickly because "he had all the sins in the world" upon him. All of this is said in the bible because people had to have a reason why Jesus died. Before all of this nonsense Jesus so popular that he had a personal audience before Pontius Pilate. In reality this is very unlikely and they probably did not speak the same languages in the first place. If there was a crucified Jesus he was most likely crucified just like anyone else of his day and time. History says nothing about him at all.
We all believe in evidence-based science, and that's why we're agnostic/atheist, right?

What I am seeing is a repeat of things from the last election. Nobody has learned anything except how to manipulate you and try and sell you. This is what it's about. Nothing is about bettering our lot as citizens. it's all about which group you want to be in control. Again, the Trumpers think that we do not need to have certain benefits and they would rejoice in "seeing liberals cry" when they are taken away. It's as if nobody believes dad will ever be in a nursing home or everyone thinks grandma can get by without social security. Deep down we all know better.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

It is a planned interview and you can tell instantly where she is going when her first words are about explaining **"how human beings were created.**" I don't happen to believe human beings were created. She does and makes it all so very plain from the beginning.
Makes so much sense now.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 15, 2020:
I see things like this along roadways where it is hard to imagine how they might have died there.
Kirk Douglas Dead at 103 | |
DenoPenno comments on Feb 15, 2020:
I remember many of his movies and he was fantastic. My ex heard him speaking one day and told me he needed to learn how to talk. He was long retired and had a stroke, then had taught himself to speak again on his own. She did not know this. Kirk Douglas was a remarkable man.

DenoPenno comments on Feb 15, 2020:
Having some sort of prejudice or bias is one thing. Believing garbage or acting on it falsely is another thing entirely. Let's just take the issue of whites not wanting blacks (or any non-whites) to live close to them or next door to them. The motivation here is political and used for gain by making the whites believe that** someone is going to take something away from them.** It's garbage and bullshit. This same thing is going on at our border with Mexico right now today.
republican health care....
DenoPenno comments on Feb 15, 2020:
This has to be the true plan because there never has been a Republican health care plan. In my state you find now that Trump and his GOP have extended Medicare options for you and this new plan is listed as an HMO. Check into it and you find new benefits that you have to pay half of to get. Many of them are free on my current plan.

Politics Question. How will you vote...and WHY?
DenoPenno comments on Feb 14, 2020:
I'm a card carrying Libertarian but never vote for or with them. This is because I am a progressive these days I will vote for anyone who can get us out of this current Fascist regime. 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. BTW, I did not take your quiz. Are you mining for information?
I've just started reading "The God Delusion" by Richard Dawkins and he say something that I never ...
DenoPenno comments on Feb 14, 2020:
I have read the book and Dawkins is correct. A major belief of modern Christians today is that their one god is so far advanced from belief in many gods, and they believe this even though their one god is really three gods in one. I'm with them if they ever get to no gods.
Happy Valentines Day!!!
DenoPenno comments on Feb 14, 2020:
I discover more and more that in any group of people, there's a tendency for it to fragment.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 13, 2020:
What you have discovered is exactly why there are so many religious denominations. Also we find that religion aside man tends to form into groups.
The obstructionist republican fascist are overtly spreading their propaganda full of lies and pure ...
DenoPenno comments on Feb 13, 2020:
Yes, Trump and his group think I am one of them or they just send this out to everyone.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 13, 2020:
I'm not so sure that all the other groups want to "see white America erased." What I am sure of is that this mindset is the rallying cry for white supremacist Americans. There is no doubt about it. 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 need this hat in my life
DenoPenno comments on Feb 13, 2020:
I hope that the words on the hat spell out what is going to be but the unfortunate thing is that the approach of the Dems is still "business as usual." That didn't work for Hillary.
Why some believe in God
DenoPenno comments on Feb 13, 2020:
People feel they really need something to believe in and they need to have all the answers. Where am I going in life and what is this all about. The religious find that in the end your life is just a test that gets you ready for death. They keep making it up to give it more meaning.
Being intelligent , unfortunately , does not mean a person is moral .
DenoPenno comments on Feb 13, 2020:
Yes, define morality. It seems to me that morality is in the eyes and mind of the beholder, set from within by whomever it is that currently molds society. In this way "morality" is ever changing.
I'm not sure into which category to post this speculation, so I eventually plumped for "general" ...
DenoPenno comments on Feb 13, 2020:
This would all be a far step in my opinion. It was a story. Who would have known about virus or germs to take a far fetched story and try to make it legitimate?
Members, this is just reporting.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 12, 2020:
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. It's really all a matter of whether you think we need better healthcare and wages or not. It can never happen with the current regime.
Someone I know is dying and has expressed that she would like to just fall asleep and not wake up.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 12, 2020:
I agree. The desires of the one who is dying should be foremost.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 12, 2020:
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.
