I don't believe in Santa. Does that mean I won't be getting any Christmas presents thus year?

Oh you're one of those pagan Father Christmas guys :(
What movies have you seen that are strange, odd, peculiar, or just plain weird?
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 26, 2018:
Lost Highway and Mulholland drive are both pretty strange, until you get on the wavelenght.
So here's an interesting thing.

about two or three years ago Russia banned street preaching, public proselyting and door to door missionaries. Both the Jehovah's Witless and the Morons were up in arms about it, if this is true it is a continuation of the same policy to lessen the power and influence of the churches other than the official state one.

Maybe, but as was proven in the UK when war widows and servicemen's compensation claims from WW1 fought for their rights, you can keep these things tied up in court postponements for so long that by the time you do settle the claims (in 2010) in most of the claiments are dead.
I am a committed Atheist since I was about 19.
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 25, 2018:
All atheist means is without a belief in god or gods, other than that you can believe whatever the fuck you like. Non of my business. However I hold some very right wing views and some very left wing views, quite a few centrist too I find the black and white thinking irksome and boring. If people based their opinions on both pragmatism and compassion, rather than some preconceived ideas about what their stance should be based on spurious self identification, then maybe things would get a little better on the whole.

Smithereens.
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 25, 2018:
in Irish Gaelic -ín pronounced een is an indicator of a diminutive form so eens probably means small piece of the preceding A Smyther in Gaelic is also a word for a small piece, but in middle English is metal worker, it is a fair guess then to say Smithereens means either smallest of small pieces, or the tiny bits of metal chipped away while metal working at a forge.

Why do people think this makes people feel better? They don't, they do it to make themselves feel better, they imagine that by saying crap like that they are "doing something", they are being missionary and spreading the word and love of gawd by being an apologist for actions that were he (gawd) real would be acts of inexcusable cruelty, they would rather try and explain away than admit the truth that he is imaginary. Rely on the true love and comfort of family and friends and move forward knowing this is not the end of your life and the joy of family you can still experience. My daughter lost her first child too, but now she has given me four beautiful grandchildren who the whole family love unconditionally. Comfort is in the future not the past. Your anger does you credit, now use it to strong and carry on. :)
How do you choose the movies you watch?

Who likes anime movies?
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 24, 2018:
Slightly off topic but the first Anime I saw was a boy and was a B+W series called "Marine Boy", apparently it did badly in Japan and only 16 episodes were ever shown there, but the BBC commissioned an additional 60 episodes in colour that were only ever shown in the UK and other English speaking countries. It was one of the first shows to be commissioned in colour by the Beeb for the upcoming legalization of colour TV in 1967.

When my father was working for ICI (imperial chemical industries) in the 1960's he asked what the difference is and was told Flammable is a chemical or substance that will spontaneously burst in to flame if exposed to high temperatures where as inflammable will only burst in to flames if exposed to a flame or electric spark from the verb "to inflame" nothing to do with the in- prefix meaning not. May have been true then, or may have been a BS explanation to shut him up, but it does sound probable

It is even better when they tell you "It's not what I say, it's what the Bible says." and they have just quoted Shakespeare, Milton, Anton LeVey or Mr Spock
"It's not what I say, it's what the Bible says."
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 23, 2018:
1) Why should I care what the Bible says? 2) I didn't ask what the bible says, I asked YOUR honest opinion, are you capable of telling me that? 3) Oh I see, so you mean you don't agree with it, you're just to frightened of your god to object?Then doesn't it say more about you that you choose to agree with it unquestioningly when you know it is evil? 4) The bible also says Bats are Birds, snakes and Donkeys can talk, a man can walk on water, Unicorns exist and that women should STFU, not me, the bible says that.
Who likes anime movies?
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 23, 2018:
Saying who likes anime movie is like saying who likes live action movies, anime is a form of film making covering every genre some is good, some is appalling, some are delightful, some are pornographic. Having said that I do like many anime movies and series, especially sci fi and horror, though one of my all time favourites is "Colorful", the story of a spirit sent back to earth for a second chance at life, it is both disturbing and beautiful.

Is trust a irrelevant thing?
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 22, 2018:
Trust is best when earned and given sparsely and with caution, only a fool trusts unconditionally and without good cause but it is equally unwise to never trust those who have proven themselves trustworthy.
I took a course in theology in collage and to sum it up you had to beleive i guess to pass.
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 22, 2018:
I seem to recall Bertrand Russell telling a story of a student asking him which universities had fellowships in theology and his replying that it would first have to be proved to him that theology was even an educational discipline before he could give question brain space.

Thou shall not kill. Didn't God send his son down here to be murdered?
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 20, 2018:
Yup the great logic of Christianity is that God put people in a garden and ordered them not to eat a fruit he knew they would eat since he is omniscient, then punished them for falling for his entrapment. Then he waits three thousand years of letting everyone go to hell for the sins of their first ancestors before turning himself in to a human version of himself, so he can go to earth and sacrifice himself, to himself, so he can forgive everyone else for what their great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great grandma did after he tricked her in to it. However having done all that he adds the codicil that even if he never gives any evidence of his own existence and in fact gives lots of evidence of his not existing, if people don't swear life long fidelity to him, obedience and give him 10% of their money, they all get to still go to Hell and burn forever, rather than go to heaven and spend eternity praising him for not burning them for doing what he knew they would do in the first place until he interfered. *Grown up people* believe this shit is proof of an all wise and all merciful being who created everything and tortures people because he loves them, and that is just peachy.

LenHazell53 comments on Aug 20, 2018:
Actually, literally ψυχοπομπός means Mind Transmitter/Transmigrater since the ancient Greeks did not believe in a souls in the way religions do today, but did believe in the survival of intelligence and individuality away from the body, and the possibility of the strong mind of one person inhabiting a second or more bodies and dominating them, or like wise the power of a strong animal mind, especially that of a wolf, possessing a human being. Plato wrote extensively on it.

There are a few of my old VHS that have never had a DVD release so have not yet been replaced and one or two rarities that I am not going to pay over £200 for. Ski Patrol (1990) is one that comes to mind, terrible film but it is a guilty pleasure and was my introduction to Leslie Jordan

Do some emotionally moving movies retain (after multiple viewings) greatness better then others?
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 18, 2018:
Silly example but in "Cool Runnings" the scene when Junior's father stands at the finishing post, wearing the the team shirt to support his son, brings me to tears every time. On the other hand "It's a wonderful life" used to move me to tears, now it annoys me as simply contrived and deliberately emotionally manipulative, with a very, VERY bad message behind it.
What are some movies everybody seems to hate but you?
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 18, 2018:
The go to TV film reviewer for years in the UK was Barry Norman, his series Film (insert year here) program ran for years (1972 to 1998 ). It became a standing joke in my circle of friends that if Barry slated a film as terrible, I would love it, if he loved a film I would hate it. (with a few exceptions we both shared a love for Kind Hearts and Coronets as one of the best British films of all time and lament it's banning now for the use in one scene of the N word, quoted in a nursery rhyme contemporary to the setting.)
Vanity publishing or self publishing. What are your thoughts.
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 18, 2018:

It is mainly because of his twaddle they had to disavow the JOD and not one single original teaching of Bring'em Young is still considered official church doctrine. He is the weird creepy Uncle of Mormonism; the one you have to keep inviting to family gatherings, but hope he won't show up, or if he does has to be kept in a corner with his hands full and with cousin Knuckles keeping an eye on him.

Why are so many people pleased at other people's misfortune?
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 15, 2018:
There is a strong and inherent need in people for justice, however not objective justice or real justice in any sense, a subjective personal justice, a sense of balance and fairness that no one else if having a better deal than you. If I lack X in my life and you have X in abundance, I envy you and feel it is an unfair situation, if you therefore suffer from something unpleasant happening to you, that has not happened to me, at a subconscious level I feel the balance has been redressed and that life is fair and my lack of X will be consequently redressed by natural justice at some point as your abundance of X has been. This leads to the extrapolated belief that if something bad happens to someone for no readily apparent reason it is deserved punishment for some past crime or injustice or punishment for something they will do in the future. It is childish superstitious thinking with no basis in reality but fulfils a primal urge for life to be fair and for no one to have gotten the better of you.
I being athiest try remember faith gives others comfort and hope etc but I myself see this as false...
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 15, 2018:
Faith is dangerous, since it is self perpetuating like a virus. I have cancer, I have faith it will go because god will protect me. I still have cancer, my faith was not strong enough, because I went to the doctor as well. I STILL have cancer and it is getting worse, probably because even when I stopped seeing the doctor I still kept taking my medicine because my faith in god is not total. I stopped seeing the doctor, I stopped taking my meds, I pray every day, I really believe god will cure his good and faithful servant... I... I ...oh He had cancer, and though he had great faith, the Lord gathered him unto himself, we therefore must have faith that the Lord knows what he is doing.

How does an all knowing PERFECT GOD make a defective person and allow evil?
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 12, 2018:
This is a great one for confusing creationists me : How does an all knowing PERFECT GOD make a defective person and allow evil? Theist: God has given us the gift of free will, we are created perfect but can choose to do evil? Me : which makes us imperfect? Theist: Of course. Me : So Someone with evil in their heart is potentially evil and so cannot be perfect correct? Theist: That's right (smug smile) Me : Where did Evil come from? Theist: What? Me: If everything was created by God and comes from god where did evil come from. Theist: Tut, evil did not COME from anywhere it is a choice made by people. Me: So what makes Evil evil? Theist: If a thing or action goes against god or his teachings it is evil Me : I see so how did we know? Theist: What? Me: how did we know what was against the will of god? Theist: SIGH it's in the bible Me: So Adam and Eve had a bible? Theist: No of course not they talked to god directly and he told them what not to do. Me: So he explained evil to them? Theist: Yes Me: So God is potentially evil then? Thesit; What? Me: If he could explain it, he must have been able to understand it, so therefore he was potentially capable of doing it, which means he had evil in his heart and so was potentially evil. Theist: NO, god is perfect, not evil at all, pure good. Me: But they broke his rules and he got pissed at them, that's in the bible Theist: NO, yes, no hang on, that was the devil, in the form of a snake, he tempted them. Me; Who made the snake? Theist: God did Me: And the snake was evil? Theist: yes Me: So god made the snake who is the devil who is the epitome of Evil, the personification of evil, but god is totally good? Theist: erm...... Me: How? Theist: God works in mysterious ways, god's ways are not our ways, you're reading it out of context, FECK OFF heathen!!

Behold the Man by Michael Moorcock tells the story of a fundamentalist Christian who travels back in time to meet Jesus, finds him unsatisfactory and too Jewish, so kills him and takes his place creating "proper" Christianity as God wants it to be. Even going so far as to have himself crucified. In the mean time the real Jesus has recovered from his injuries and and amnesia and finds himself the object of adoration and a messiahship he finds blasphemous, so runs away. This novel is a masterpiece of allegorical fiction about just how people become obcessed with their own idea of how religion should be, having no respect for the the truth or of the origin. There was an attempt to make a TV Twilight Zone episode of the story, but it was blocked until they changed the lead from Jesus to Elvis Presley. (the writing credit goes to a young George R.R. Martin and is called “The Once and Future King,” but is clearly a rewrite post dating Moorecock by 17 years.)

I was once commissioned to make a Lau stick for a Boku man in Louisiana, during a period of my life when I was making bespoke accessories and jewelry. Interesting project, just shows you how religious people of all strains are willing to pay a lot of money for basically a stripped and decorated graveyard tree branch. He was happy with it and I was happy with the cash, win, win.

Went to see this in 1980 at the local cinema, the audience was made up of about 200 Brian Mays and I think I was the only one with genuinely curly hair.
My rose garden has several rocks with similar messages.

Is there a word that says one is anti "religion" not antithiest?
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 10, 2018:
I am assuming the word would be something like contraekklesia being in opposition to religion or churches Come to think of it Iconoclast probably fits the bill nicely. An Omnipotences (used as a proper noun) probably fits for your second query
Belt of Venus.
