My desire to travel is kicking in again. I would love to go somewhere by railroad. Suggestions? ...

The Amtrack up to Canada along the Hudson River is very nice. The Border can be a problem but the Hudson and Lake Champlain are really nice. The best one is supposed to be across the Canadian Rockies but that you have to search out because of the weather and the time of year. I think they have a hop off hop on policy which you can find out when you research it.

These people are all Multi Millionaire bestowed upon my donors, lobbyist and what ever we didn't see which is much more than is realized. To hold them accountable for what they stand for and not their designated party dictates is the Problemo Numero Uno. These persons who in the past two years have turned the racist, hateful gun toting for America to an all time tune for disaster and blood shed for which they show no compunction for their beliefs because what they believe in is money, greed, and to reward those who pay their way. If you have trouble realizing this or want to support it start it up and let everyone chime in. We are living in the most disasterous period of American Democracy and if you don't think so then go and see what the Christian Right is about and how that has gone on forever, and is not blinking an eye to their own hyprocacy and bigorty. Hypocracy and Bigotry have been passed off in History as the greatest causes for War, Death and Destruction on Massive Scales and to include the most violent and longest conflicts. Viet Nam is 98% Catholic. The Pope was aware of the Holocoust being commited during WW11 and did nothing or mentioned anything about it. My Rant that I always speak to my Friends. Doctors, Lawyers, Priest, Politicians are the greatest problems that hinder our lives and everything which we do or want to do and work toward always keeping us under their domain so that we must always feel dependant on them for care and concern which we never get or ever will.

I was told long ago in my College Days by many intellectuals that I "See Too Much" I have an excellent problematic and am hypersensitive. Did I ever latch onto any of it. I was walking a tight rope trying to pay for my "away from home" experience at a University that I was enable to secure with a student loan and the GI Bill and working three jobs in the summer. My Dad passed two weeks before I was drafted into the Army but he made me promise him before he passed that I would go and complete my College and that by going away was the only way that I could fully grasp the being there 24/7. I transferred from a Community College and had to start all over which was another episode that made it all the more enjoyable. Does get knocked down 5 times, get up 6 come into play here. It was a totally different education from those who went to the same school for 4 years, and I think I learned twice as much as they did, but then again I was a Veteran and wasn't into picking the berries, or what concert was I thinking about next. I came to terms with what its all about and I made every second everything I could for all that I could.
Anyone else listen to/watch Matt Dillahunty often?

Great Show with great people who know exactly what they are saying and let the whole world come on air to join in and I'm sure half of them are sitting home looking up what verse and chapter he is telling them isn't correct. Try Bart Erhman who is a Professor of Theology at Chapel Hill. He is also on You Tube in which he hosts some great debates and also takes Q@A at the end of his debate. Then go and look up Christopher Hitchen. Bios of Martin Luther, Calvin, Erasumus, and John Hun all of whom were devote Christian Scholars of their times and what contributions they made to ensure that the interpertation and explainations were properly translated. Lots of Mistakes were made and this was an era when the printing press made all this information open to the public for the first time ever. This is all on You Tube fur free.

I lost the post and cannot find it where you stated that you were trying to learn the guitar. Get rid of the concept of "trying" and replace it with "I'm going to learn how to play the guitar." You will never fail as long as you don't quit. Keep saying to yourself that You Are Going To Play the Guitar. I will tell you more later on my episode with Music. Don't go for expensive lessons. Lots of alternatives out there.

I have always had a hard time getting people to understand the fact that there is no test now or ever which can measure genius. The IQ test was designed for one and only one reason.

Have you tried studying biblical history?
Nevermind345 comments on Mar 8, 2018:
It is one of the most eye opening revelations you could ever want to explore. Then go and read the lives of Luther, Calvin, Erasumus and John Calvin. Most of todays current Religious Leaders don't want you to know this and will damm you for ever giving it a thought. Many Atheists were at one time extremely religious until they discovered these facts. The scrolls that were discovered in the Late 1800, early 1900 in Iraq lost scrolls were found that were burried in earthen jars in caves. The Nag Hammadi scrolls contain some of the lost books which include the Gospel of Thomas. There is also a Gospel of Mary Magdelene who was the most famous apostle of the prophet Jesus because she was literate, and was also believed to be his wife. If you really want to follow that episode, you will find some facinating facts and contradictions to what was thought to have been destroyed by Constantine who was a Pagan. I think Constantine had his Wife and Son Murdered before he was baptized so he could go and confess it and be forgiven. You may want to check up on that one because its been a while, but I'm pretty sure of such a fact. Where and what book I am at a loss.

The Atheist Experience, which is on weekly and from Austin Texas with Matt Dillahunty as the main host and a very knowledgeable source of fact. Talks to believers around the country who try and state a case which they aren't very good at defending. Bart Ehrmans lectures, Histories of Erasumus, Martin Luther, John Calvin and the Crusades. History and Religion are Oil and Water which many are afraid to ever reconcile. Their religious affilitates tell them they will burn in hell and they believe them which is Demonic and has nothing Religious about it. When you Google or You Tube these individuals you will get a host of similiar persons or events that can be a great unveiling. Sorry I don't watch TV anymore.

Lots of History into these Religious Carnival Entrepreneurs of Today. My favorite is Joel Olsteen who has the Christianity of a Snake Oil Salesman and a Congregation to Match. We can then follow the trail onto Jimmy Swaggert, Pat and Tammy whom all reign from the Souther Coalition of Racism, Bigotry and Hatred. I think looking in the Mirror every morning would be more frightening then examing your morals which all of the above haven't a clue about. Morals have nothing to do with religion because they are naturally instilled into logically. Hatred, Bigotry and Racism have to be taught or preached from the stump. Professional Wrestling has a brighter and bigger mirror for whatever that is worth but it is one of the most watched venues on the Media today which tells you how these con a vails exist and the mentality of those who follow. Mister Rogers never preached but was a Minister in real life.

To be any kind of serious religious believer, one has to start off as a Nihilist, Chicken or Egg Man. Adam and Eve had two sons, one who killed the other and no daughters, which could be an inference to homosexuality or that one was a hermaphordite. Once your in this corner see where you can go from here and keep where the Chicken comes in to the story.
Dawkins or Hitchens?
Nevermind345 comments on Mar 7, 2018:
Gospels of Thomas, and Gospel of Mary Magdelene only for perspective and interest. Very different portayals of what the Prophet Jesus was really about by two of his very close associates. Also lots of stories that the Church doesn't want to be let known. I am a fan of Hitchens and have seen his debates on You Tube although I haven't gotten into his readings. Bart Erhmans Lost Books of the Bible is also very interesting.

I've been to Europe for the past 6 years and thats all I do is visit Cathedrals, Churches and Chapels along the way. The art work and architecture, frescos, wood work, ceilings and doorways are unknown and these artists spent their lives creating what no museums in America can compare. Germany is second to Italy which I need to go back because I was so amazed by it. Even the floors are original so you know that Kings, Popes and Royalty renown walked on the very floors and some are buried underneath them. The Organs and if you hear them play are totally like nothing else you would believe.

Uncommitted relationships are the only way to travel. Makes for more interesting times and things to talk about and really learn about one another. I noticed in the last few years couples who had families and were never married until they came to the conclusion that it was just a piece of paper that had nothing to do with the relationship. Religious People see it as more profit and then people would go to church not because of thier religious beliefs but because of the particular person or type of service. Drugs have brought a lot of other experiences of a more positive nature as a more accepting feeling of being spiritual, mystic, psychic, or far out.

When I was young I was of the belief that it was going to get better and that people would wake up and start to show concern. And I was wrong. And being a Veteran has really made me irate, because these Politicians have no concern for those who stuck their lives and minds on the line while most of them were able to find a way to weasel out.

The Guy has Big Ones being a Southerner who isn't waiting for the South to rise again, but to Grow the Fu#k up. I am truly afraid for him because if you know anything about the "Real Southern Disposition" there are many who would take the opportunity to make him feel the vengenance they like to be known to famous for. He inspires alot of insight into the fact that they are not as backward as they are portrayed, but then again when we wake up to another horrific tradgedy and see the Christian Coalitions of the South stand behind and throw their unrelenting support for Racism, Inequality for Women, Deportation and Corporate Exploitation which they believe are true Christian Values.

Some people do not realize the affection that are given to their animals and are ignorant of the fact that these creatures of God have a special soothing capacity that they cannot understand or render. I have a special approach about this because I know that sometimes it goes a bit off the deep end, but I would only add that the creature doesn't understand your language but your affection which is their way of making someone else very uncomfortable. If you used the cat to torment him then you caused a problem which I am very familiar with and I loved the dog who was involved with our relationship very much and the other person used this in a way that was totally disturbing. But we don't know the other side of the episode which like a bad marriage where one spouse will say that her chosen was a total Assh@#e which brings one to the conclusion that if you agreed to the union then exactly who are you talking about.

Go online and listen to Historical Scholars like Bart Erhman, The Atheist Experience which broadcasts live and on line every week from Austin Texas, Christopher Hitchens. All of these can be found on You Tube and they have debates that they do not loose if you care to learn something. What is really worth listening about is the fact that all of these individuals at one time in their lives were totally devout Christians who went on to seek the truth only to find out that it was all one big lie. Lets begin with the four evangelists all of whom were illiterate fishermen whom could neither read or write. I may have over extended my paragraph so I'll let you tell me what else you would like to hear maybe after you listened to those whom I have listed and where to find them.

Clothes, Furniture and what ever you didn't know you would like. I was in Construction in NYC for 30 yrs and there are a few outlets like "Cheap Joes" and a few others that you have to go into to see what they are "giving away" If I needed an emergency buy then you had to had a preview to remember where. If you travel to NYC into Penn Station your in a good area for browsing especially up and about 7th, 8th Aves between like 23rd st to 46st. If you make the trip do it with the time to take the walk and go into every store. For Shoes and accessories I will go to Burlington Coat Factory or others and find there sale section which is usually cut down real low but you only have to find the right size and then your set because they can have top name shoes at 75% off. Furniture is my favorite because I like to refinish wood. Only real wood and the older and scratchier it is the better because it doesn't have 5 coats of paint on it. One coat is a major problem and you don't know. Again I will only get real wood and if you go and buy a sander or do it by hand all you need to know is that once you get to bare wood you will understand how simple it is. Applying the stain and whether to varnish or shellac is something that you will understand. Another thing is that one you get going you really get to see the beauty of wood and you can spend as much time as you want because it only gets better. You will also need to learn about steel wool, sand papers, razor knives and the different types. Its a real joy when your done and find out how much you have really learned and it will get easier each time.

When my train came into the station, I was at the airport. I was shot at but missed. Shit at but hit. The light at the end of the tunnel was a train coming in the other direction. When you got to the fork in the road what went wrong. Ask Yogi on this one. When I took the fork in the road will I ever know what would have happened had I taken the other. That I always spoke my mind and never had to remember what I said to persons whom I should have. That I was as a fool for thinking that I could make a difference in a world of greedy and self imbued persons. Only when you are a true believer in any personal endeavors along your path do you learn what is regret and how many others you have met and experienced your road and most importantly. That when you got knocked down how fast you got up and how much you learned.

What is unconditional love, and if so, what do people mean when they speak of it?
Nevermind345 comments on Feb 24, 2018:
In Psychological terms Mothers Love is Unconditional-Fathers love is conditional. Nobody can ever say anything about her offspring. As bad as they might be she will always love them and swear to the world how wonderful they are. Daddy on the other hand doesn't quite have the same outlook and his affection can vary because of the a sex identity. This can also relate to his son who if he doesn't like what he is being told to like or pursue the occupation he is told, or could not be a competitive sports fan. Lots of things come into play when it comes to seeing how you fair. This is Psychological Theory and I'm not a Psychologist but it is the way it was taught to me. Animals exhibit unconditional affection to their owners.

Great Presentation that most Politicians would ever understand because they are in bed with most of these Corporations and get padded very generously by their lobbyist for keeping us out of the know. I remember some people who were on the Atkins Diet back some years ago who used to swear that what he was saying was true and I couldn't believe that a Medical Dr. could endorse such a practice. And of course we have the biggest dilemma found in the Pharmaceutical concerns who have the whole medical industry and our health being criminally exploited both in Congress and withing the Medical Profession itself by rewarding Physicians who endorse their medicines. A lot of work has to be done exposing these criminals and the Politicians who endorse their mandates.

At one time in History they were "The Guardians of the Holy Grail" for whatever that was worth, but like Professional Wrestling it was prime time in its age. The Knights Templar were a very Religious Organization who became more powerful in profit than Rome intended for them to ever become. It was the SS of the Catholic Church designed to remove the infidels from the Holy Land and they did a very notable demise to those who stood in their way. Once the "Holy Father" saw what they were uncovering and getting rewarded with he had them rounded up and silenced. Those who escaped the massacre started the Masonic Order of the Knights Templar. Their is a lot of History written into this and please do not go to Dan Brown as a reference. Start with the Inquisition and work your way forward thru History which can be a long road but very well documented. When you come to their role in the establishing of the Constitution and the separation of "Church and State" hold on to your hat. The American Founding Fathers were all very immersed into this.

Is there a reason we should speak respectfully of the dead?
Nevermind345 comments on Feb 18, 2018:
If you loved me when I was alive, you would have made it a point to inform me of our concern. Does that make your point mute? The Victims whom have perished in war, famine, gun violence are not coming back because of respect! Like in a War Memorial you will never be able to insert the word respectfully. I don't think that Victims would make the agenda!
Be honest! Have you ever let someone just fall during church when they caught the Holy Ghost?

Go to You Tube and read the story of Kris Kristofferson and him telling how he wrote the song "Why Me Lord." Its the closest you will ever come to something as what you are looking for.

When your talking Fundamentalists, your Southern Bible Belters are more cults than religions. If you are sworn to believe that the Bible is the absolute word of God when it has over 5000 mistakes and more being discovered every day you just went down a few points intellectually. Jimmy Swaggert, Pat Robertson and Joel Olsteen are not by any stretch of the imagination note able Scholars on the subject of Religion. Your talking Money Makers who live in Mega Mansions and fly around the world in their Private Jets because they pay no taxes.

I have a problem with any website that when I log onto it says to "Donate" before you ever get to read what is being presented. If I gave three dollars to every Political Campaigner which is like signing onto a Religious Charitable Organization pushing for a charity that you have no idea about and are lesser informed about where the money will actually be distributed or spent. Health Care donations to Cancer, Salvation Army MD, Alzheimer's end up be Administratively appropriated for Salaries and other expenses which is why I don't go to Church or donate to any. I sent them all personally to those whom I know to be truly in need.

Are you forgetful or easily distracted?
Nevermind345 comments on Feb 15, 2018:
Every time I leave my apartment. I have to stop and think if I have everything. I will get 5 min. down the road and I have a brain spasm and I either forgot my phone or a handkerchief. If I am going to the gym which I do 3X a week its my pass which I keep in my vehicle and when I come out sometimes forget to put it back into the console. If I stop off at the store on the way back I always buy something I didn't intend and sometimes forget what I need. I'm retired and when I was working I had to be up at 445 am and be out the door by 510 in order to catch the train. I had everything laid out the night before. I don't have to do that any more because I don't care. I need my handkerchief and my keys but I have a spare key in my wallet and can sniffle my way thru my walk. I don't like forgetting but I am not going to let it make me crazy. I've heard it, seen it and am part of it. Don't let it bother you. Just enjoy your moments to the fullest and the rest will get done some time or another. And when you find yourself getting annoyed then just smile and say "eh" This is also more prominent to those who live alone. Its one of the trade offs of not having someone to nag a you about this or that. Its great to know that no one is watching, or cares what you are wearing, or are going to eat.
Is anybody else an outcast of their family?
Nevermind345 comments on Feb 15, 2018:
I have two brothers who haven't spoke to me since my Mom passed away 30 yrs ago. They laughed at me all of their lives because I could always do for myself and never cried about anything. They also have a great distaste for each other and I was foolish enough to think I could do something about it. The Greeks teach that if you try and intervene between a dispute that you will become the victim. People do not like people who they know are better and smarter than they are. They have put you on the field to see which side your going to side with and by ignoring you they are forcing your discomfort which they want. I walked away from my brothers and never sided with either because I was stronger than they realized and they were sure that I was going to make a choice and that cost them both dearly because now all they have is each other which was never going to change. You have to realize that this has absolutely nothing to do with you but them and it is their loss. Don't torture yourself with this childish ploy. When they see that it annoys you is what they want to see. Someone who is as miserable as they are. You have turned out to be everything that they could never be and are jealous about your self esteem and certainty to do it on your own. Keep your head out of the shaft and worry about numero uno. Keep doing what your great at and thats making yourself shine and accomplished.

From Germany you can go to Paris, Belgium and lots of surrounding areas. Language is not a problem. Start a plan and see how it goes.

I imagine you have some rare ones that are probably out of print. I dread the same problem and sometimes ending up buying it again. If you have any friends who have similar likes then you should parcel them off to them to dispose of which I am sure they will do as you wish. If they are classics or out of print you can see if someone would be interested in buying them. If you look them up on line you will find sites who will buy them or at least offer to buy them, but you have to see what the going price is and how rare they are. Its a fun thing to get involved with and you find some you never knew about. I would go with your friends or a club if you belong to any as another way to lessen the load.

Have meaningful, enjoyable work that provides a living income?
Nevermind345 comments on Feb 11, 2018:
I had a work ethic that was a soother in dealing with this. Your always looking for a new job and a new place to live. Good Jobs that pay well are usually found in big cities where the cost of living is very difficult adding in commutation and traffic and or both. If your paying your bills with some left over then your on safe ground until you can either find new digs, or you know your going to get a raise. Good jobs also come from either friends or relatives or a reference. You will never get a job on what you are qualified for and will find out those who do have the good positions have an attachment of sorts. If your creative and can start up your own area of expertise you will have some rough riding for a while but will find out if it is going to get better of whatever. My other practice was to find a job that no one else wants and learn how to get good at it. Just keep your eyes open and keep sending in resumes. I don't know about Linked in and if your signed on with them but it most definitely would not hurt.

I 'm big on Biographies, but more so by the Authors and their time they spend documenting and footnoting what they find. A few years ago I got hold of the Life of Martin Luther which after I saw a You Tube of it was able to find his Bio that was written by Roland Bainton "Her I Stand" I spent more time looking up Religious terms and Definitions because they were so important in understanding what was going on and how it was being orchestrated. I found out more about the Catholic Church than I ever thought I could imagine. He goes into the confession dilemma and what was going on in Rome at that time. Now you have to remember that this man was a very pious Monk who was a Professor of Theology and was responsible for translating the Bible into German and with the aid of the Printing Press made it available for everyone to read which at the time no one had a clue what was written because the only copies were in Latin and the Church didn't want you to know what was written. Lots to read about in that one and I would recommend it to anyone who has a penchance for the history of religion which brings alot of thing that you never knew or were erroneously led to believe because you didn't know where to go.

The most beautiful thing about any person is their smile. You have to learn it defeats the biggest rants and bullied statements that anyone could ever care to impose on you. I would never date a women with either makeup or tattoos. When they do this to themselves it is a form of hatred that they do not understand because it doesn't come off Lets talk about souls which everyone has but never want to concentrate about. If you were to write to someone whom never say you and they got involved with you person and what you displayed mentally without the picture you would have painted a beautiful picture of yourself. I would never wear a wig or a toupee because I have always wanted to live the way I was made and just be me. Everyone else is taken. You are and individual who is letting your past dictate your future. Many good looking people or should I say think that they are beautiful hack it all up with makeup and hair dye. They are not happy and never will be because they do not accept themselves for what they truly are. Don't dump on yourself either because it's not going to bring you forward which is where you want to go. Makeup never made anyone beautiful and never will because anyone who knows what it is to be beautiful knows that it comes from the inside and not whats on the outside. Learn how to smile and make sure that you do it as often as you can. When they see you letting yourself be vulnerable, they will make it worse.

Confession is not a sacrament and cannot be found anywhere in the Bible. Nothing about Priests not being married. The mainstay of that argument is monetary. Plenty written about Jesus and Mary Magdelene who the Catholic Church had to confess was not a prostitute but one of the more knowledgeable of all of his followers whom is recorded by the other Apostles to kissing Jesus on the lips. According to Jewish Law a Rabbi had to marry have a family. She was the only one who witnessed the crucifixion and the resurrection. Look up her Gospels as well as the Gospel of Thomas and will get a totally different view of what you have been taught or were made to think was true. I would like to see the Cardinal go to prison where he will learn how to hear real confessions among those in General Population where I am sure they will give him much to think about. Aiding and Abetting a Felon is a Civil Crime of the Highest and we are talking a crime that any other citizen would be faced with serious prison and humiliation for his actions. I never saw any exceptions written in for Clergy of any denominations. I rest my case for now but I have much more to mention.
How do you tell religious people that you're an atheist?
Nevermind345 comments on Feb 8, 2018:
Give them my favorite quote by Hugo Betti. To Believe in God is to know that all the rules will be fair and there will be wonderful surprises. Better yet look up George Carlin who does a great show on Religion which is on You Tube. Tell them you belong to Bart Erhmans Bible Study Group which is on You Tube also. He is a Theology Professor at Chapel Hill SC, and used to be very religious and is now an Atheist or Agnostic. He has some great presentations. Lewis Black has one on the Old Testament which is another classic. What these people lack is the ability to defend what they call religion and they are what was termed by another famous Theologian who used the term "cadaver catholics" as people who go and sit in Church every Sunday and believe everything that is preached to them and then come back again next week and do the same thing. I will spare my take on the Fundamentalists who scare me because those Bible Thumpers get a bit carried away and they can be scary. I like to tell people that I'm spiritual which can mean anything and everything and applies to every person atheists especially.

Look back, but don't stare. Someone gave me that when I was relating a problem that I was having with my immediate family. You are going to realize how strong you really are and never knew it. I was never married for all the right reasons by asking all the right questions that they didn't know how to answer. I helped a lot of my friends thru such a period and my biggest concern was to tell them was not be vindictive or go and get married again right away. Lots of things you always wanted to do and never could because of all the obvious reasons. Well guess what. Its called Me First so grab a suit case and change the scenery. I found lots of beautiful people with whom I could related my life to and you will find that you are not alone and they give the best remedies for what you are because people are the best cure for everything. Don't dump on yourself and remember that sympathy is in the dictionary between shit and syphilis. Learn to dance in the rain and if your going thru hell to just keep going. Your going to do great.

That was my first comment and it took almost a month to get a website which made me think that everyone must be in Church, because they sure weren't responding. I like to read the Histories of different religions and their beginnings. Did not see any Classifications that were Historically defined.
