LenHazell53 comments on May 27, 2020:
Trump: I'm the president, I represent the people, therefore if I say it, everybody is saying it, so it must be true! Fuck you twitter! Perhaps Trump should start his own social media, and call it Blather!

LenHazell53 comments on May 25, 2020:
I find that crying at novels or movies tends to stem from wish fulfillment for a better world or situation rather than actual sadness. For instance to me having had a poor relationship with my own father, a scene in a film that ALWAYS makes me cry is at the end of "Cool Runnings" When after facing down his father in a prior scene, Junior sees his father in the crowd proudly cheering him on and wearing a team shirt. The expression of pride on Charles Hyatt's face and the plea for his son's forgiveness in his eyes is heart rending.

My wife suffers from under active thyroid. The first thing she was asked was, is there a history of thyroid problems in her family as it is almost always hereditary. Sure enough on checking we found it in every generation of women in my mother in laws family going back for at least five generations. So if there is a connection with radiation, then it might be fair to think the nuclear factor works on preexisting condition.

LenHazell53 comments on May 24, 2020:
This was the whole point of the FSM religion was to prove that all religions should not be allowed special privileges. This was proving such a problem and a threat that a coalition of churches took the matter to court and had the US supreme court rule that the "Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster" is not a real religion. It was a fair bet they would win as a similar case some years ago ruled Scientology was not a real religion either, but was allowed to register as a charity and so retain it's tax exempt status. (Something the FSM has never even applied for.)

LenHazell53 comments on May 19, 2020:
Among the general population mainly answer A Among the religious hierarchy almost exclusively answer B I was told after leaving Mormonism (by three former Bishops) that almost everyone who becomes a bishop comes to the conclusion the church is not true very quickly, at which point they either leave (the rate of apostasy amongst ward and stake bishops is something like 80%) or they decided to make a career in the church by propagating the lie, these fuckers almost always move on to paid clergy work such as Stake president (with the appropriate honorarium or stipend) or move in to the CES (church education system) as a paid employee. (there is a myth that the LDS has no paid clergy, it is exactly that a myth.) Once there you are on a career path that can and sometimes does go alway the way to being the Prophet when you are about 92 as a rule of thumb especially if you can find some spurious genealogical connection to one of the patriarch of the church, nepotism is a powerful force in all religious institutions especially the Saints.

LenHazell53 comments on May 17, 2020:
"However to not believe in something is in itself a belief," This is incorrect, based on the false premise that the opposite of the verb "to believe" is "to not believe" or is "disbelief" neither of which it is strictly correct. Not believing is the absence of belief in a thing or practice (eg I do not believe in circumcision) Disbelief is to be indifferent to the proposed thing or practice (eg my disbelief in phlogiston makes it's truth or lack thereof irrelevant to me, so long as I can access fire) The true opposite of belief is is skepticism and/or doubt, both of which require an evidential basis to be valid. Without evidence they simply revert to being denial. eg I doubt or am skeptical of the existence of any deity because there is no evidential reason to do so. In reality regardless of how they express it an Atheist (in the literal sense of the word) is skeptical of deity and religion as a whole, but will likely express his or her doubt *coloquially* as non belief or disbelief thus opening themselves up to theist equivocations. One cannot believe that one disbelieves, or does not believe something, you either know it or you do not, if you do not you must retain some degree of belief and so are simple obfuscating or quibbling.

this reminds me of the French 2002 French presidential election when accused and almost certainly guilty of diverting public funds and abusing public confidence Jacque Chirac campaigned under the slogan **"Vote for the Crook, not the Fascist"** to 1) keep himself in office and therefore immune to prosecution and 2) to beat National front leader Jean-Marie Le Pen who had been engineered in to being his only real contender. Though Chirac did serve another term as President and did attempt to pardon himself he eventually was tried in 2011 and was given a 2 year suspended sentence. From that point on elections have become a choice of the lesser of two evils all over the world and one that a surprising number of people are willing to accept under the philosophy that you don't get anywhere in life by being honest, and the higher the rank you attain the better and more successful crook you are, skills you can carry over in to being a "strong" leader.

I worked for many (many,many) years in retail and the one constant has always been the widely held belief that retail would be a terrific job, if it weren't for all the customers. Customers are invariable a combination of any two or more of the following traits: Theiving, nosey, irascible, racist, sexist, angry, arrogant, gossipy, rude, vulgar, quick to anger, impatient, violent, clumsy, SMELLY, drunk, self righteous and above all else fucking stupid! And as a retail professional you *have* to pretend to notice none of this, be polite and pleasant and guide the fuckwits to what they actually need rather than what they incorrectly think they want, because an hour later according to their furious wife on the phone to your manager, it will be **your fault** if the stupid burke decided to take home a cucumber frame instead of a greenhouse, a dog instead of a gerbil or a new car instead of a replacement shoelace. On line retail is a boon to sales, it is cleaner, safer, less disgusting and happily is it seems here to stay. The customer may enjoy a chat, but after the fifty ninth time in one day some twat has answered your "Good morning sir" with "What's good about it?" or "No it's not" or "fuck you" and thought they were the first person ever to come up with such a magnificent *bon moe* the rictus smile on you face does begin to twitch a little.
What Jesus Really Said About Heaven and Hell

The early church was run by business men and all business men know you need a carrot and a stick to get the most out of your work force. The teaching orders of monks quickly discovered that promise of "Jam tomorrow" has always worked well and any school master knows the threat of punishment to come is far more effective than the actual punishment, especially when you make it clear that begging for forgiveness can end that looming threat...at a price. Jesus may have forgotten to mention this explicitly, but no matter the Bible has alway be open to, editorial interference, reinterpretation and additions by way of revealed truth.

"subjective concept of God (if everyone agrees with it)" The only way that everyone will agree on anything is if it is provable with evidence and is therefore no longer subjective, but is objective and no longer a concept but an actuality.

Another ill thought out attempt to shift the burden of proof away from the theist position. One need not prove something does not exist if there is no evidence for it's existence, I do not need to prove there is no easter Bunny, no Santa Clause, no Michael Myers and I need not prove the non existence of god(s) since if they/ he /it has failed so spectacularly to prove the opposite

Yup in 1941, the Universal horror movie "The Werewolf" was forced to change it's title to "The Wolf Man" in case people thought it was showing sympathy for Germans. In the UK German shepherd dogs were banned and reintroduced as Alsatian dogs, because people were shooting them as being unpatriotic. That's why Corona beer had no chance and all eclipses have been canceled for the foreseeable future.
