!Warning - satire ahead! Iceland Mandates Evangelicals Pass A Safety Class [patheos.
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 17, 2018:
I thought this must be a joke, but apparently, though officially 85% Christian Iceland is ranked the 6th most godless country in the world, with church attendance practically non existant with most churches and other places of worship having only lay clergy and one visiting clergy person visiting only for weddings, funerals and infant blessings / naming.

Calque-a word taken from another language. Important for those of us who study languages.
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 16, 2018:
In France recently there has been a campaign to try and stop youths using English words and Americanisms creeping in to the language in greater and greater amount. Le weekend, la carpark/parking, une Brainstorm, Stop, la Brunch and weirdly as an insult L'has-been etc Similarly in Japan it has become youth culture to use English words as slang, it is common for Japanese people to say Thankoo (thank you) in place of Arigato. However one particularly prevalent one is is "Aho" (アホ) a niphongo adaptation of asshole used in place of the traditional Japanese Baka (ばか) for idiot or fool

Paddy won the lottery and decided to do two things he had always wanted to do, buy a Rolls Royce and join a golf club. As it happens his father in law's boss was selling his Rolls and on health grounds was giving up golf, and so was invited to Paddy's house to sell him his car and set of clubs. Paddy looked over the vintage Rolls Royce silver ghost with avaricious eyes and not a little admiration. "What's dis?" he asked "A heated hand brake cover" replied the seller "An' dat?" asked Paddy. "Stereo music system for music while travelling" came the answer. At which point Paddy knocked over the Golf bag resting on the front passenger seat, spilling out several Golf Tee's. "Ah Faith," cried Paddy, "What's dem little egg cup thingies?" "AH," replied the seller, "Those are top of the range tee's, on which you can rest you balls when driving off." Paddy gasped in delight "Holy God would you look at dat," he said "Dem Rolls Royce people think of everything!"

An English and an Irish missionary in south America in the 14th century were captured by and obscure tribe who had never seen a white man before. They were amazed at the odd colour of their skin and decided to flay them alive in order to make two Kayaks. On the first day The English priest was given a last meal, before being taken away to be flayed and made in to a boat he cried out to god "In to thy hands oh Lord I commend my soul." On the second day the Irish curate was presented with his last meal, he bowed his head over the food, grabbed his fork and began stabbing himself all over his body, while yelling "You'll not make a feckin' boat out o' me ya bastards!"

Slightly off topic, but has anyone wondered why certain words DONT exist?
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 15, 2018:
Underneath comes from *under*, and *neath* a contraction of nether, meaning low or lower and often used as a slang term for the posterior and region of the sexual organs. Therefore underneath meaning under your bottom, such as in a window seat or under bed storage, does have a sensible antonym that being "overhead" *Nonetheless* dates from the 1930's prior to that the nearest expression not split in to separate words is *nevertheless* meaning *in spite of* or against expectation, so it's antonym would be "therefore" The problem is that some words or combinations of words have lost their original meaning other than in a specific context
When someone says they are an atheist they are saying they know that there is no God.
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 15, 2018:
"When someone says they are an atheist they are saying they know that there is no God. " UTTER BOLLOCKS A-Theist means without god(s) thats it. There is no proof of god(s) therefore there is no reason to believe in god(s) There maybe god(s) and I will accept that, but with no evidence to back up the claim, even if there is a god, there may as well not be, which still amounts to a-theism being without god(s) I advise you to learn what you are talking about before making a total fool of yourself in future.

ABSQUATULATE: (verb) to flee; abscond: The old prospector absquatulated with our picks and shovel.
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 15, 2018:
I have never heard this word, it is remarkable, from what I have been able to find it originated in a comedy play called "The Kentuckian" by James K. Paulding. It is a composite word as stated but from ab negative prefix, squat to make a home and perambulate to walk, made up by the braggart character "Nimrod Wildfire" who is attempting to emulate an educated gent in order to improve his social position. No copies of original play still exist, but there are copies of a rewrite by English author William B. Bernard which does include the word.

Atheists are just as entitled to be arseholes as religious loons. However since people who have become atheists through understanding and a demand for evidence are less likely to accept idiotic prejudice with out evidence to. Being reasonable gets to be a habit after a while.
Indupitably: meaning something that cannot be objected to as it is totally correct.

Star Wars religious views?
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 14, 2018:
It is more akin to the Ennead of ancient Egypt, with Luke fulfilling the role of Horus (Child of a murdered father seeking vengeance on his uncle), Vader as both Set (Vader) and Osiris (Anakin), Leia as Nephthys and Shmi as Isis, with the force serving as Atum and the empire and the republic being Shu and Tefnut. Horus flies in the form of a Falcon (Millenium Falcon) and commands Dog or Jackal headed warriors such as Wepwawet and Anubis (Chewie) The names of Atums children Geb and Nut literally mean Sky and Ground (Skywalker)
How can we get religion out of politics?

So long as people are religious and allowed to vote, you cannot. all that can be done is educate people, but since politics permits religious educational school, they've pretty much got it tied up.
Gruntled.
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 14, 2018:
The Oxford dictionary defines Gruntled as Humorous Pleased, Satisfied, and Contented. I'm afraid I would not trust the Merriam Webster Dictionary to define a cat as anything other than not a dog and as a guide to accurate spelling it is about as reliable as a chocolate tea pot.

LenHazell53 comments on Nov 14, 2018:
I have been dyslexic all my life, I was diagnosed at 16, prior to that I was considered lazy, careless and stupid. However most of my teachers could not understand my ability to comprehend and use a very wide vocabulary, understand several languages and problem solve at a high functioning level, yet could not spell to save my life, would write words in a mix of upper and lower case and could not see why words were incorrectly spelled even when it was pointed out to me. I have so many old school reports stating highly intelligent but unable to communicate in writing owing to carelessness. When I finally was diagnosed I was able to treat my condition by using books, but for years had no actual help other than to simply sit and write words over and over again until muscle memory took over. With the dawn of computers spell checkers saved my working life and allowed me to finally pursue writing as a secondary career. I love words more than anything else in my life, their etymology is a cause of endless fascination to me and the precision and science of lexicography is a thing of beauty. It is an irony to me that today with the incorporation of many Americanisms and Australasianisms in to mother English spelling, etymology and semiotic/semantic have become unfashionable and the use of misspelled and generic terms are killing the language in the name of linguistic "evolution" for the convenience of the very lazy, careless and stupid people I was accused of being and now I am pretentious for being finally correct in my use of language. C'est la vie.

LenHazell53 comments on Nov 14, 2018:
One of a set of medieval insults using guard as an ironic and mocking military term **A *Black* guard** was in charge of cleaning soot from kitchen utensils and black leading ovens, stoves and grates so was permanently filthy, so any contemptible person was compared to one. **A *slug* guard** was from sluggish, anyone lazy or to fond of their bed **A *Slag* guard** was a cleaner of trash and bodily waste receptacles from slag, meaning waste in time a slagguard became a person associated with filth and in time a promiscuous man the female version of which became slagg a promiscuous woman

LenHazell53 comments on Nov 13, 2018:
Some interesting words in this post @marionville gives a fine definition of and explanation of the origins of gormless. Poodlefake as a verb is actually a very nasty word indeed in it's original context, most often used as poodlefaker or poodlefaking (sometimes hyphened to poodle-fake). It meant a man who fained interest in older or unattractive rich or influential women, flirted with them and sexually aroused them in order to facilitate social advancement. To Poodle means to slash in water or or make wet, same root word as puddle but as a slang term means to arouse women sexually. Faker is obvious. An example of a famous Poodle faker was the Duke of Essex whose dalliance with Elizabeth the first ultimately cost him his head. A pussy foot was a thief who wore pussies a Medieval word for pockets on his feet in order to not be heard creeping up on a victim. In time the work was co-opted as a rhetorical device of a person who skirts around an unpleasant subject in ordr to spring a verbal trap.

# There is an old illustrative story about this point. A little boy wanted a bike for Christmas, he behaved well and prayed every night to god for a bicycle, but come Christmas morning Nothing, no bike, nothing else, nada. So he asks the priest why his prayer was not answered, why had god forsaken him? The priest advised the boy to read his bible, which he did, diligently for the whole of the next year, and finally he understood what he had done wrong. So the next year he broke in to next doors garage, stole their son's bike and spent boxing day praying for forgiveness. Problem solved.

"Oh sister Mary," said Sister Anna. "I shall have to go to confession tonight and tell the priest I had two orgasms today." Confused Sister Anna asked "*Two* orgasms?" "Yes well," said sister Mary.

LenHazell53 comments on Nov 10, 2018:
I once had a senior member of the high priest quorum (LDS church) come and visit us out of the blue after news broke that former member of our Stake had committed suicide, it so happened that years before he (the victim) had been engaged to my wife. The chap came in made a big fuss out of telling us the Lord had prompted him to come visit us, because he felt something had happened and he felt we might be in need of a blessing of comfort. I asked him out right if he had come because B... had killed himself and he feigned ignorance of the suicide. Problem was that the High priests quorum president who was a personal friend, had phoned us an hour before to warn us that he had asked Elder M.. to come visit us in light of the fact my wife was once very close to the victim. I told him this and asked why he lied, he replied he had not seen the president in a week and that he too must have been moved by the Lord to call us and warn us of Elder M.'s inspired visit. My wife asked he to leave as she could see I was about to throw the old bald bastard out of the house bodily for taking both of us for utter fools and for trying to manufacture a miracle.

And yet this guy, knowing this still wears the uniform of the liars and presumably takes a handsome stipend pension from them too.
Imaginary Friend

Yup, reminds me of my mother warning me Catholic beliefs were stupid before rolling around gibbering in tongues at her charismatic meetings
This is a great action packed World War II movie
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 10, 2018:
Looks to be an enjoyable movie, but does seem highly derivative of Outpost and outpost 2(2008 & 2012 ) and Frankenstein's army (2014)

The Shroud of Turin, and the Stigmata. How do you account for them?
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 9, 2018:
The Turin shroud is a medieval fraud, proven by carbon dating and two different researchers working independently (Dr. Nicholas Allen in Africa and Picknett and Prince in the UK) proving it likely to be an image created by heated linen soaked in light sensitive chemicals and a Camera Obscura. Stigmata are a mix of some frauds perpetrated by religious maniacs self harming(or more disturbingly harming their children), and a seemingly not fully understood syndrome causing lesions in the hands and feet, that though assumed to be religious in nature are not consistent with actual damage done by crucifixion where the wounds were in the wrists and ankles.
Biblical Bovine Fertilizer: David Barton’s Politics Here’s how extreme right-wing Christian ...

Go through that list, replace bible with Koran, God with Allah and Christian for Muslim and you have a terrorist manifesto document.
Please give us your feelings about the following, which I gave as a reply in another post.
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 9, 2018:
It is an equivocation, deliberately confusing opinion used as a simile for belief and opinion used as a simile for preference. for example *It is my opinion that apples are the best tasting fruit* **I disagree because it is my opinion apples were the fruit of the tree of knowledge therefore eating them is blasphemy.** *That does not alter my opinion on their taste being good* **You can only know their taste if you are blasphemous, so your opinion is dangerous and proof of guilt**
Unabashed /ˌənəˈbaSHt/ adjective not embarrassed, disconcerted, or ashamed.
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 9, 2018:
from the same root as bashful but the origin of the word, from before the French baissier (humiliate) is unknown , the a- probably indicates Greek origins
Were you religious at any point in life?
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 9, 2018:
Yes, I was raised by a religious maniac mother and so totally indoctrinated that when I found fault with one Christian denomination I went looking for another (the true one) time and time again. It finally took getting involved on and off with the LDS and for a (long) time being a TBM before I finally realised it was all the same shit in different wrapping paper. Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom before you can begin to climb back out.
Pat Robertson: Faith Healer?
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 9, 2018:
One only has to look at Pat Robertson to know that if there was such a thing as faith healing Pat Robertson would not look like that. He looks like Jeff Sessions less good looking older brotherunclecousin with IBS
My favorite Sam Harris quote: “In fact, "atheism" is a term that should not even exist.
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 9, 2018:
The a- in atheist does not mean non, it means without and there are plenty of words ideologies and beliefs that use the prefix a- in this context So being non religious and being atheist are subtly different. Even in the context discussed, there are words used in the same way apolitical, non totalitarian for example
Do we really need another, the one we have seems to do both aspects quite well?
