If a guy or girl straight up asked you to have sex with them, how would you respond to it?
Gohan comments on Feb 21, 2018:
I would ask her if she'd like to go out on a date first, then I'd get to know her before making the decision to have sex.
"Try to be happy while living, for you're a long time dead." Old Scottish proverb
Gohan comments on Feb 20, 2018:
Good advice is best when taken.
@Silver1wun -- Welcome to the group.
Gohan comments on Feb 20, 2018:
Thank you.
If someone messaged you and straight out asked to meet up would this be creepy and off-putting or a ...
Gohan comments on Feb 20, 2018:
In my opinion, if you have no access to anything about the person, yes, a little creepy. I prefer to engage in conversation before meeting someone from the internet. And if I do meet someone, it's always in a public place.
Theater vs home movie?
Gohan comments on Feb 20, 2018:
Depends on the theater and when. I like ones here, they have big comfy reclining chairs. I like to see movies about a month after release when the theater isn't packed. I also like to watch a movie at home too.
Does your ideal partner exist?
Gohan comments on Feb 20, 2018:
I haven't seen evidence of such a thing existing.
If you had a penny for every time someone tried to convert you, how rich or poor would be?
Gohan comments on Feb 20, 2018:
Maybe enough to get a bottle of water.
What was a fact taught to you in school that has been disproven in your lifetime?

Gohan comments on Feb 20, 2018:
Thank you.
Religious suffering
Gohan comments on Feb 20, 2018:
Fear based worship should be dissolved. Fear is a common tool of control. Freedom of choice and will should never be shackled by fear.
Trump Budget Sends $1 Billion To Private Religious Schools
Gohan comments on Feb 20, 2018:
Disgraceful. Best word to describe Trump is Trumpery.
What is it you like about Agnostic.com
Gohan comments on Feb 20, 2018:
Great discussions and evidence based debates. Plus, an opportunity to find love.
@Count -- Welcome to the group, my friend.
Gohan comments on Feb 20, 2018:
Thank you.
Weird?
Gohan comments on Feb 20, 2018:
I would politely tell someone with those beliefs that you beg to differ (if you're so inclined) and politely end the date. Swaying them is a waste of time, it's been deeply ingrained and usually would require a frontal lobotomy to get them to think otherwise (and I hear tell those are frowned upon.)
If man doesn't exist does the the universe exist?
Gohan comments on Feb 20, 2018:
Evidence suggests that it would exist and it will go on when our existence sees its end.
How do you deal with disappointment in life?
Gohan comments on Feb 20, 2018:
Disappointment is a part of life, I pick myself up, dust myself off, and learn from them. I also try not to have expectations, there's where disappointments are born.
Perspective
Gohan comments on Feb 20, 2018:
Not really. I embrace my flaws. The ones I like I do nothing about and the ones I dislike I work to alleviate myself of them.
What do people usually post on here? I'm new. Haha
Gohan comments on Feb 20, 2018:
Anything and everything. Welcome.
Recently saw a woman being kicked off a Delta flight because she didn't want to sit next to a crying...
Gohan comments on Feb 20, 2018:
Babies cry. Invest in a pair of ear plugs. Have the airline offer earplugs. In my case I have a migraines and I keep a pair of noise suppressors on hand to elevate pain educing noise.
Have you done anything nice for yourself lately? :- )
Gohan comments on Feb 20, 2018:
I buy myself a movie and a book every month.
Can you fall in love with someone who you've never met in person?
Gohan comments on Feb 20, 2018:
I'd like to think so.
So the loneliness has finely sunk in.
Gohan comments on Feb 20, 2018:
I know the feeling all too well. Some nights I want to feel someone's arms around me. The smell of hair or the weight of their head on my chest.
When a person cheat, do you look for revenge or do you just let it go?
Gohan comments on Feb 20, 2018:
In my opinion, if either person cheats, the relationship is over.
To the happily childfree: What were your reasons?
Gohan comments on Feb 20, 2018:
I haven't been found yet.
Men... bald is not a bad thing?
Gohan comments on Feb 19, 2018:
If I go bald, which it doesn't look like its happening, I will go with the flow. I've shaved my head for awhile and enjoyed it, air conditioning for the head. I've also grown my hair long and also enjoyed that, but here in Florida it isn't practical.
Do you "people watch?"
Gohan comments on Feb 19, 2018:
Yes. I like to say it's part of my job.
Favourite Book Genre?
Gohan comments on Feb 19, 2018:
As an author of Science Fiction I'm partial to the genre.
Do you like a challenge in life or an easy life?
Gohan comments on Feb 19, 2018:
I'd like a balance of both challenges and an easy life.
Any President's Day plans? Here's a suggestion.
Gohan comments on Feb 19, 2018:
Just writing.
Which one makes you feel the worst?
Gohan comments on Feb 18, 2018:
2. Praying only serves the one praying as it has a meditative effect on the person praying.
Is intelligence or wisdom more useful?
Gohan comments on Feb 18, 2018:
Intelligence plus experience equals wisdom. If you have both their use goes hand in hand. If you only have intelligence and not wisdom, it is a tool that serves well.
Personality Test
Gohan comments on Feb 18, 2018:
Yes.
What made everyone become agnostic or so forth?
Gohan comments on Feb 18, 2018:
I grew up in a secular family. If I wanted to read any religious text (and I did) I was free to do so without advocacy or discouragement.
The obsession with weapons...
Gohan comments on Feb 17, 2018:
Weapons hold within them the power of life and death, to wield them gives the possessor power. Power intrudes on the possessor's mind and preoccupies it. Power is like any other mind altering substance, more must be obtained at any cost.
Science fiction or science fantasy?
Gohan comments on Feb 17, 2018:
I lean more toward hard Science Fiction. All my devices in my stories have some basis in reality. For more hard Science Fiction check out Alistair Reynolds or Arthur C. Clarke. For fantasy, pretty much anything with Star Wars in the title.
Hi.
Gohan comments on Feb 17, 2018:
Welcome.
What would be a good name for a Satanic/Atheist private school?
Gohan comments on Feb 17, 2018:
Hadrian for a boy and Lilith for a girl. Mal or any name including Mal is considered evil.

Welcome.
Does anyone get a high from learning?
Gohan comments on Feb 17, 2018:
Yes.
Do you make your bed every day?
Gohan comments on Feb 17, 2018:
No, making a bed is bad for you. Here's an article about this. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/4181629.stm
Hello everyone! New to this site. Any hints?
Gohan comments on Feb 17, 2018:
Welcome citizen.
A man cooking. Is it a turn off or turn on?
Gohan comments on Feb 17, 2018:
No. As a child I grew up with my father and brothers cooking. Later, I cook when I am lucky to have a girlfriend. I guess I see it as normal and that is picked up by my girlfriends, or I'm a crappy cook.
Loneliness
Gohan comments on Feb 17, 2018:
I battle my loneliness one word at a time.
Does Being On Agnostic.com Alot, Cause Any Issues In Your Home With Family ?
Gohan comments on Feb 17, 2018:
No partner to worry about my Agnostic.com habits.
@Gohan -- Welcome to the group.
Gohan comments on Feb 16, 2018:
Thank you.
Women = Lesser cut of meat!
Gohan comments on Feb 16, 2018:
Couldn't stop laughing. Corbin should have been thrown into an insane asylum for spouting such delusions.
Enjoy a good conversation
Gohan comments on Feb 16, 2018:
Yes.
To what extent do you believe "with age comes wisdom?"
Gohan comments on Feb 16, 2018:
I hypothesize that intelligence + experience = wisdom.
So, I recently realized that tomorrow will be my 20th anniversary of quitting smoking! I can't ...
Gohan comments on Feb 16, 2018:
Great job, I'm in my 8th year abstaining from cigarettes. The smell of smoke, residue, and ashes nauseates me, but that's a positive. Again, great job.
Are you forgetful or easily distracted?
Gohan comments on Feb 15, 2018:
Yes, forgetful and easily distracted. It's a struggle with distractions when trying to meet my daily writing quota of a thousand words a day when writing. I have issues with the grocery store as well.
Do you tend to lean towards nihilism?
Gohan comments on Feb 15, 2018:
No. I have found meaning and I retain my morality. But before I started writing, I had my days where I embraced some nihilistic feelings.
Sad but accurate
Gohan comments on Feb 15, 2018:
Enough. It is time for our lawmakers to learn from those who have successfully reduced gun violence, therein lies the answer.
Do people of above average intelligence have a harder time finding a partner?
Gohan comments on Feb 15, 2018:
I can't speak for other people of above average intelligence, but in my experience, yes, it has been considerably difficult to find like minded individuals. I'm selective when it comes to finding a partner. I even struggle to find friends. I feel that the majority of people look down on those with higher intelligence and this makes it difficult to find a group or just one. I've caught myself trying to blend in to the normal crowd, sometimes with considerable awkwardness, which has the opposite effect.
Why do women have to basically spell it out for men in what they want? Why are they so clueless?

What's your best feature, beside your personality?
Gohan comments on Feb 14, 2018:
I don't know, maybe my left hand index finger second knuckle.
For all the singles, how long have you been single?
Gohan comments on Feb 14, 2018:
I've been single for about a year now. I write to keep myself busy, and this keeps me sane. Some days the loneliness is unbearable, but I endure.
I am afraid of ghosts, though I don't believe in them
Gohan comments on Feb 14, 2018:
You have an imagination, try writing.
How often do you self-censor? Is it hard to bite your tongue?
Gohan comments on Feb 14, 2018:
I make it a point to not self-censor, unless I'm speaking with children.
What are you most passionate about?
Gohan comments on Feb 14, 2018:
Helping to change the world one word at a time, Science Fiction, and Fieros.
Do you have a favorite outspoken atheist?
Gohan comments on Feb 14, 2018:
Neil Degrasse Tyson.
"Books are a poor substitute for female companionship but they are easier to find" - Kvothe, The ...
Gohan comments on Feb 14, 2018:
Shouldn't that be attributed to Patrick Rothfuss?
If you were a beer, what would you be? I'd be a hazy juicy New England style IPA
Gohan comments on Feb 14, 2018:
Guinness.
Which religion were you first presented with?
Gohan comments on Feb 14, 2018:
None of the above.
I've been an atheist for about a year now, it was a lonely transition but now it feels comfortable ...
Gohan comments on Feb 13, 2018:
Welcome.
Should atheism be taught in schools?
Gohan comments on Feb 13, 2018:
In social Studies the world's religions should be mentioned, because they're a part of this world's social makeup. Schools, save for religious schools should remain entirely secular. Teach the children Math, Music, Art, Sciences, Grammar, U.S History, World History, Social Studies, Critical Thinking, Home Economics, Wood Working, Mechanical Engineering, and electives that bridge the gap between HS and University.
What is your take on the 2 party system?
Gohan comments on Feb 13, 2018:
I feel with proper education, something the current "representatives" fear, we can dispense with the representatives and their corporate driven corruption. We can then represent ourselves. We can make bills and laws to govern ourselves. Keep the Constitution and amend them appropriately to support the people as the true government of this country. I'm tired of the "Oh, they don't like my bill, let's just shutdown, nonsense. This is juvenile and unprofessional.
Where is your favorite place to vacation?
Gohan comments on Feb 13, 2018:
In movie theaters or in books.
Believer Bashing?
Gohan comments on Feb 13, 2018:
I don't believe in bashing the believers for believing. Don't do unto others what they do to you and they will learn that you might have a better idea. At least that's the hope.
Where do you get your morals from?
Gohan comments on Feb 13, 2018:
My father taught me to be empathetic and moral.
So is there anyone on this site that likes heavier music? Tell me your favorite bands!
Gohan comments on Feb 13, 2018:
My favorite bands are Avenged Sevenfold, Metallica, Halestorm, Texas Hippie Coalition, Sevendust, Disturbed, Korn, Tool, etc..
Can an atheist be happy for the future
Gohan comments on Feb 13, 2018:
Can an atheist be happy for the future? yes. As a Science Fiction writer thinking about the future is my job. I feel that we as humans will get our collective heads out our asses and start working for the betterment of mankind and for Earth. In this dream humanity is fairly happy. As for the afterlife, I figure that I'll figure it out when I get there.
Okay single folks, how are you spending Valentine's day?
Gohan comments on Feb 13, 2018:
I might go on a date with myself. Where will I go? I'll have to surprise myself. I mustn't forget the reservation.
What made you wake up?
Gohan comments on Feb 13, 2018:
She blinded me with Science!
What are you here for?
Gohan comments on Feb 13, 2018:
I'm here to kick ass and chew bubblegum. And I'm all out of bubblegum. With all kidding aside, I'm here to find people with similar views of the world. Also, it wouldn't hurt to find someone to give my heart to.
Standards
Gohan comments on Feb 12, 2018:
No. I have too much respect for women. I have to be attracted to or develop an attraction in order to have sex with someone.
What do you know that most others don’t?
Gohan comments on Feb 12, 2018:
I don't know. I know a great many things. Others may know and are pretending to not know, you know. These days, at least in my experience, knowledge makes you an outcast. I thirst for knowledge, because I've been taught that knowing is half the battle.
Do you feel guilty when you kill insects, rats, or any other lower animals in/around your house?
Gohan comments on Feb 12, 2018:
Every time.
Night owl
Gohan comments on Feb 12, 2018:
I hate going to bed before 2am, my day isn't properly concluded. When it's late in my little part of the world is finally quiet and I can get some work done. My best writing happens between midnight and 7am.
Anyone out there with Borderline Personality Disorder?
Gohan comments on Feb 11, 2018:
My ex-S.O. was diagnosed with BPD. I loved her so. Her BPD tore us apart. I wish her well and wish for her happiness.
About Yourself
Gohan comments on Feb 11, 2018:
I love to wear black clothes, preferably tailored suits.
If anyone was looking for the perfect Valentine's gift.
Gohan comments on Feb 11, 2018:
The perfect gift is always love.
My love or their love?
Gohan comments on Feb 11, 2018:
Though unreciprocated love is hell. If you're loved by someone you have little if any love for, you can learn to love them. It may take time and a whole lot of frustration, but it's better than the alternative.
How many will be attending the 'Trump-Giving Day Militany Parade?'
Gohan comments on Feb 11, 2018:
I absolutely will not attend a third-world regime show of strength. This is the United States of America, we don't do that nonsense.
I switched the television on tonight and caught most of "The Fifth Element" on Syfy.
Gohan comments on Feb 11, 2018:
Robocop, Avengers, Starship Troopers, Children of Men, Office Space, Blade Runner, etc.
Anyone make any close connections yet?
Gohan comments on Feb 11, 2018:
Not yet, still working on it though.
Coffee or tea?
Gohan comments on Feb 10, 2018:
Coffee.
Reasons for attending church or mass
Gohan comments on Feb 10, 2018:
Brain damage.
Am I still single because my face is that hideous?
Gohan comments on Feb 10, 2018:
At first sight of your picture "ugly" was not the word that came to mind. Beauty is not just the layers of skin we show to the world, it is what fires in our minds and breathe through our mouths and lands in the ears of others.
What makes people read.
Gohan comments on Feb 9, 2018:
A genetic predisposition for stories.
Why do I hate it when a man sexualize my insights/intelligence/etc?
Gohan comments on Feb 9, 2018:
Intelligence is sexy and is subjective to sexual orientation. There's a word for someone who has a fondness for intelligence, sapiophile. To those who aren't sexually oriented to one another the fondness is still present, but the sexual component is not present. I'm sorry if you hate the adulation. Attractiveness and understanding, love, and respect aren't always mutually exclusive.
Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.
Gohan comments on Feb 9, 2018:
Intelligence can be a mixed blessing. It grants those who possess it an insight to the world and this has an impact on overall happiness. Those with it could see the paths that governmental representatives are taking, and this can have an adverse effect on happiness. Those of higher intelligence have a greater capacity for creativity, this could have a positive effect on happiness. Therefore happiness is subjective.
Does anyone remain confident in Trump
Gohan comments on Feb 9, 2018:
Unfortunately he has a cult following. For them, he can do no wrong. There's a perfect word to describe Trump and that word is trumpery.
Favorite Anything?
Gohan comments on Feb 9, 2018:
Driving a Pontiac Fiero GT.
POF - Plenty of Fish. Anyone familiar with it or use it? What are your thoughts on pof?
Gohan comments on Feb 8, 2018:
I have a POF account and I've had some dates. It used to be good, but since ownership of the site has changed hands it has become nothing but porn ad after porn ad. You have to pay to see your matches on the meet me section. I think it needs to go back to being the great site it once was. It needs to be 100% free again. Now, I shall step down from my soapbox.
I want to thank @Affinis for giving me this idea (after reading your thread on Lorraine Hansberry).
Gohan comments on Feb 8, 2018:
Dogma (1999)
What does American greatness mean to you?
Gohan comments on Feb 7, 2018:
The United States of America has never been great. It has always been a work in progress. Some members of our government like to see progress halted at all cost. Some have a different view and wish to push us into the future with a sense of dignity. We've seen democracy work. Some individuals seek to tear down all that has been built because of their personal beliefs. We need to make our representatives represent the people not the corporations.
Is it easy for you to adapt to change?
Gohan comments on Feb 7, 2018:
Change is inevitable and necessary. Without it life would be uninteresting.
Do yoy find yourself still saying'bless you' when some one sneeze
Gohan comments on Feb 6, 2018:
I say nothing. But if someone does say 'bless you' to me, I politely thank them.
So if your standing there talking to god and he sneezes.........what do you say??????
Gohan comments on Feb 6, 2018:
Whatever does a god need with a sneeze reflex?
