Welcome.

I am a lifelong, unapologetic atheist in the final stage of my life. I have done and continue to do what I can to bring atheism out of the closet in the hope that the next generation of atheists will suffer less discrimination.

I oppose all things conservative, again unapologetic. People who fear that with which they are unfamiliar need to accept that we are all equally deserving regardless of who, what, where, when and how we were born. The issue is inclusion vs. exclusion and conservatives have always been and will always be on the wrong side of history.

Great clip, thank you. Why wouldn't I be happy when someone who is a detriment to humankind dies? I have no qualms about this whatsoever. And not only religious people and natural deaths either. I suggest a PARADE when Trump bites it.

Presidents look so much older after their presidencies than before. I'm surprised anyone qualified even wants that job. Biden was not my first choice and I know he will fall short in some areas but he is our only hope for preserving our democracy. I hope we don't lose any more great ones before the election.

Big hug. Being an atheist is not a choice, it's a fact. I can't make myself believe in things that I don't Yes, it seems like it would be nice to have some of the comforts and promises that a fairy tale brings but it would disappoint you if you ever really had to rely on it. To me, the truth is more important than anything so knowing and living the truth is the feel good of atheism. Big hug.

LovinLarge comments on Jul 29, 2020:
I too am skeptical. The author of the study is a professor at a Catholic university yet, 45% of his subjects identified as atheist, agnostic and non-religious? Some of the findings in the study do not even support the claim in the title of the article. Smells like more of the usual pro-religion claptrap to me. Don't let other people define you.

LovinLarge comments on Jul 24, 2020:
I'm sorry, I am so furious over this topic I can only squeeze out a short answer. I think all reasonable people are incredulous over Trump's unconscionable conduct. I saw someone post the following about Trumpers on FB the other day and I think it's accurate: they love him because they ARE him. I get some security out of the fact that I have dual citizenship with another country but that's not going to save me from the havoc he is wreaking on the rest of the world.
Romantic relationship with a strongly religious person?
LovinLarge comments on Jul 24, 2020:
There is a limit as to how seriously I can take anyone who believes in something for which there is no evidence or even anything in nature to suggest that a god is even possible, not to mention the many thousands of children who die every day from poverty. So no, hard pass on serious relationships with religious and spiritual people and I assure you that I will never set foot in a church, dead or alive. Humankind must end religion before religion ends humankind. I don't think your recruitment drive will work here.
Bill Nye Says ‘We’re All One Species’ As He Simplifies Race In Viral Video | ETCanada.com
LovinLarge comments on Jul 23, 2020:
When my son was little, I was explaining racism to him. We had a black cat and a white cat at the time and when I was finished he exclaimed that racism was as stupid as favoring our white cat over our black cat simply on the basis of their color. I have contemplated racism much, especially since then. I think color may be just a representative factor while the real prejudice is toward different cultures, namely in the US primarily mainstream caucasian culture favoring itself over the differences in African American and Hispanic cultures. Despite their many faults, my non-religious parents did not permit discrimination on the basis or race or ethnicity in their household, for which I feel fortunate. Even so, my position is that while we live in a racist culture we are all racists by default. That does not keep us from joining the movement however, and if Trump sends his hooligans to Denver to abduct people like the brown shirts did in Germany in 1938, I will be there.

Hello and thank you. I have two recipes that I got the ingredients for and am now just awaiting the inspiration to follow through. The first is Alabama Pecan Bread which I have never heard of before and the other is the Red Lobster biscuits made into a loaf of bread. I'm sure they both will be excellent. I'll keep you posted! Excellent cooks and bakers run in my family but the trait stopped a generation short. I'm just usually satisfied if my product is edible.
Shocking over the last few years what our Trump has gotten away with.
LovinLarge comments on Jul 22, 2020:
Any relatively normal American feels the same. Trump is a brief historical aberration that is about to take the one term walk of shame. The only people who he can get along with for any length of time are sycophants. Everyone else is turning on him, one by one. I'm hoping to hold off puking until it's over.

If you wished you could have been born and raised in another country, which?
LovinLarge comments on Jul 22, 2020:
I was born here but raised and educated in Canada, returning after the sudden death of my only sibling. The people look the same in Canada but the culture is different. It is a more compassionate community and I miss that. At least at the time I left, they didn't even have guns in the prisons (except the Supermax). I have dual citizenship and consider returning. But the fight is here and I feel a responsibility to do my part, although I did vote absentee until I returned. Were birth not luck of the draw, I surely would have chosen a Nordic country but I feel fortunate that my father chose to be part of the departure of academics from the US to Canada when I was a young child.
Its 4:30, i'm still awake, sort of.
LovinLarge comments on Jul 22, 2020:
I'm sorry. I wish I'd seen this earlier. Hopefully you've gotten to sleep. The bizarre situation we find ourselves in is overwhelming. The most each of us can do is stay informed and ensure that anyone we have any influence over is informed enough to make the right decision in November. Trump is an unfortunate historical hiccup that is about to come to an end. There may be times where you have to turn off the news for a period in order to cope with the absurdity of this experience. Know that it is temporary and we still have the opportunity to recover.

Your posts are very depressing so I suspect you are depressed. So are a number of other members and you're not helping. Obviously, a speech to text app would help with your typing issue. Obviously, only a doctor has any chance of helping you with your pain. Obviously, medication for depression also starts with talking to a doctor and other forms of treatment are available from a therapist. Change requires an effort from you and I sure wish you would do it because your woe is me attitude isn't helping anyone.
Trump has initiated his own illegal Geheime Staatspolizei, abbreviated Gestapo.
LovinLarge comments on Jul 21, 2020:
I think the significance of what's going on now depends on whether he is reelected. If he is, I think this is the beginning of our next Civil War because I know I for one am not going to tolerate this descent into fascism. But I think we can still avoid it as long as he is removed from office, which I believe he will be, and through our democracy we can reentrench the significance of the rule of law so we can get on with the business of addressing the pandemic, reestablishing our international standing and getting our climate plan underway, for starters. There is much work to be done and he is taking us in the wrong direction from which we may never recover.

LovinLarge comments on Jul 21, 2020:
I am not, but I certainly have been. For me, it was more than a rut but I don't know about you. It passes for some, others have to reach out for help. Even now, I do have to force myself to do some of the things that I don't want to do because there is no one else to do it. At my lowest, I recall forcing myself to do one productive thing each day, otherwise that day would pass and I would never again get to make anything of that particular day. Can you do that?

Ridiculous that they weren't wearing masks at a food bank of all places. Is there a different one you could try (not the church ones)?

Although I am not qualified to diagnose it, your Depression jumps off the screen at me. It is not your fault that you feel like you do. Your doctor can help you begin to address your despair if you confide these feelings to them. There are many ways depression can be successfully addressed and many people who make it their life's work to do so. Everyone asks for help at some point in their life and your time is now.

Not everyone is here for romance so visiting someone's profile does not necessarily mean that those men were interested in you romantically. I would hate anyone whose profile I visit to think that I was interested in them romantically. This isn't a dating website but your confusion is understandable and I'm glad you raised the issue. Now if gay men were hitting on you by pm, that would be different but if your profile is specific, that's not going to happen. Hope that helps.

Worth watching, thank you. Movements motivate change is an important point. The point that wasn't as obvious is that third party supporters are overlooking the fact that change is incremental because they aren't satisfied with that. But even if a third party candidate won, change would still be incremental. Biden has committed to progressive incremental change and Trump has and will continue to implement regressive incremental change. Third parties that split the left wing vote will help Trump continue to do so. Third parties would be more effective as movements rather than actual political parties. Third parties got less than 5% of the vote in 2016.

If you love someone truly love them, and there is a small hiccup in the relationship.
LovinLarge comments on Jul 15, 2020:
There are hiccups in any relationship. The strength of the relationship is determined by how many of those hiccups the relationship survives. But I don't know if loving someone and commitment to a relationship are synonymous because you can love someone without being in an intimate relationship with them. Also, some people aren't good at relationship or problem solving or both. All you can do is your best, ask for what you want and accept the outcome. Not everyone wants to be in a relationship and not everyone knows how.

The thing is, it's not just masks. Same argument over lots of things, fireworks, for instance. Conservatives refuse to accept that when you live within proximity of other people, there will be some infringement of personal freedoms so that everyone can be safely accommodated. They have no sense of community. My theory is that conservatism is a form of Attachment Disorder.

He's the only person I have referred to in my life as "white trash" because the man has no dignity.
