Comments

Happy Monday everyone!
Paddypereira comments on Nov 5, 2018:
Thanks, lass!!! ;-) To you too!!!
True it's disgustingly true!!!!
Paddypereira comments on Nov 4, 2018:
Very true.
Lololololol..
Paddypereira comments on Nov 4, 2018:
Jaysus!!!
I'm trying to figure out this app XD
Paddypereira comments on Nov 3, 2018:
Welcome... to the Funny Farm!!!! Hahahahaha!!!
Alot of people hate me. i hate alot of people. seems fair to me then again i have a heart of stone
Paddypereira comments on Nov 3, 2018:
Funny enough, my heart is pure muscle. How come a heart of stone can work inside the body??? :-P
How Do You Say It? Keep adding to the list...
Paddypereira comments on Nov 2, 2018:
In English, with a mix of Portuguese and Irish accent.
Please share any fun thing that you did on Halloween.
Paddypereira comments on Nov 1, 2018:
I did feck all. And it was fun! :-P
Isn't it time for a women president?
Paddypereira comments on Nov 1, 2018:
In Ireland, we already had one.
When a close friend or family member is "asking for prayers" and you want to wish them well what ...
Paddypereira comments on Nov 1, 2018:
Show them my support.
My Halloween costume for work Can you guess what I am?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 31, 2018:
You look like a German waitress from Oktoberfest, the ones that carry loads of big tankards of beer. I love it!!!
What Would You Tell Your 18-Year-Old Self?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 30, 2018:
If I had known what life would become for me... Lol!!! Unfortunately, we only find out that information with time.
Are You Having A Typical Monday?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 29, 2018:
Bank holiday in Ireland. Day off and getting paid for it.
Why you should never put vodka in the freezer
Paddypereira comments on Oct 29, 2018:
In Poland they put it in the freezer. It tastes a lot better.
Is This Taboo?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 29, 2018:
If people want to do so, that's their choice. I've never had the chance to get married, I think not having sex at 46 would be quite cruel when you have hormones that dictate your sexual behaviour, but that's my opinion. Morally, I don't think there's anything wrong with sex before marriage, but people are entitled to their opinion and posture on life.
What makes/made you happy today?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 27, 2018:
Last night, drinks with an old friend.
Has anyone had a pivotal event that changed the direction of their life?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 27, 2018:
The biggest one was when I moved to Ireland. Another was my father's death. For different reasons.
A poem of wonder here I bring.
Paddypereira comments on Oct 24, 2018:
They say hope is the last thing to die.
This will be my first post here, and it is very difficult to write, as silly as that may seem.
Paddypereira comments on Oct 23, 2018:
Welcome.
Has your Atheism affected your patriotism?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 23, 2018:
I'm Portuguese. My level of patriotism is telling the best of my country and culture, use my language with pride but I wouldn't die for my country, I don't think it deserves it. That's me. Other people will have different attitude and there's nothing wrong with that. I know many people will disagree with my attitude but that's part of life.
How to reply when someone says 'have a blessed day'
Paddypereira comments on Oct 23, 2018:
Thank them. At the end of the day, they are wishing you well and being nice. So, be nice as well.
When you're the only atheist at work
Paddypereira comments on Oct 22, 2018:
He who owes nothing fears nothing.
Atheist = Depressed?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 22, 2018:
I don't think there's any relation between being atheist and depression. My older brother is bipolar and he's religious. Of course there will be atheists /agnostics that suffer from depression but I don't think you can relate things.
What's the best response to "why are you so quiet'?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 21, 2018:
When silence is worth gold, words are worth silver.
What would you consider "The meaning of life" to be?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 19, 2018:
Well, I follow Monty Python on that.
If your pet could talk, what would it say to you?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 18, 2018:
I don't have, unfortunately. If it was a dog, I think would try to tell me :"Paddy, pet me!" If was a cat, would tell me "Feed me, you bastard!!!" :-P
Which one would you prefer in your life; catch up in person or mainly social media?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 18, 2018:
I prefer in person but we have to keep communication channels open, be it social media or a phone.
We've all heard the saying, "if it don't apply, let it fly.
Paddypereira comments on Oct 17, 2018:
Sometimes asking questions is good.
K.
Paddypereira comments on Oct 16, 2018:
When things must happen, they simply happen. Great to hear that. All the best for you!
Better Relationship?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 16, 2018:
Well, I don't give much importance if my other half is believes in God or not. When has to work out, it's not that important.
What are you really good at that you wouldn't put on your C. V?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 16, 2018:
Having fun.
Why are you here
Paddypereira comments on Oct 16, 2018:
For the craic.
Do you like being spontaneous or planning ahead?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 15, 2018:
Keep planning to the minimum and improvise along the way. When things are too planned they become boring.
Arguments and debates
Paddypereira comments on Oct 15, 2018:
I had a great debate with a Muslim in Egypt where we wouldn't agree, of course. The guy was from Yemen and I could see he was highly educated, the way he spoke wasn't from an average guy. Until now, I never got anyone that I enjoyed so much debating the existence or non-existence of God.
As a group of mostly open minded people, I am surprised by the number of persons who are openly ...
Paddypereira comments on Oct 13, 2018:
My first intervention here had a reply from someone who took his /her beliefs as facts and could have easily turned out sour but I guess it's normal when human beings are involved.
Political correctness was not even the original term it was called Alternate insert target here.
Paddypereira comments on Oct 13, 2018:
Many that complaint about others being racist, homophobic, sexist or whatever are often worse than the ones that they criticise. The so called political correct sometimes is used to disguise cowardice. I admire people who can make good criticism, tell the truth that hurts without offending the person that has to hear it because they know how to express well their ideas. I'd rather someone blunt than people who say things indirectly. How come people don't know how to separate things any more?
A masked man goes into a sperm bank, points a gun at the woman behind the counter and says, "open ...
Paddypereira comments on Oct 13, 2018:
Jaysus!!! That was a brilliant one!!! Hahahahaha!
Why are humans so slow to learn?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 12, 2018:
Since when mankind learned from History?
Would you move for love?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 10, 2018:
I don't know, depends on the circumstances. At the moment, I can't.
What do you expect from this life?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 8, 2018:
I make mine the words from the last comment.
How old/young were you when you realized you were atheist/agnostic?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 8, 2018:
Still at school. Donkey's years ago.
True story. I have no clue how to date anymore . . . . .
Paddypereira comments on Oct 8, 2018:
I've had a date on Saturday, my first in years. I just went for it, although I don't think we're going to gel, it was great anyway. In the least, I got to know someone new.
Do you attract a certain type of the opposite sex? Do you have a preferred type?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 7, 2018:
Well, with me, there's no rule. A woman or has it to get me or doesn't. I'm not into blonde women but it means nothing.
Do atheists observe Halloween?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 7, 2018:
Well, if I manage to get done an Alice Cooper style make up it'll be a happy Halloween for me.
Atheist political party
Paddypereira comments on Oct 5, 2018:
Well, all nations should have the political power separated from religion. Here in Europe already is like that for quite a few years.
Imagination, good or bad?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 5, 2018:
Not only in science but in arts as well. Everything has it's advantages and disadvantages.
How many of you attend services, but are agnostic?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 5, 2018:
I don't. The last time I went to the church it was for friends wedding in Poland. That one was the best ever. The priest seemed to be good craic, telling jokes in the middle of the service. Unfortunately, I couldn't understand a word, it was in Polish.
What would your pet name you?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 5, 2018:
Paddy, hopefully.
I just don't understand how people can stand being alone.
Paddypereira comments on Oct 4, 2018:
Everyone is different. I have been alone for a while and I feel great. Nothing wrong with that.
If you have a birthday today...
Paddypereira comments on Oct 3, 2018:
Mine's on the 27th of April. Long way to go. There will be party. Always an excuse to gather a group of friends.
The existing/non existing Universe
Paddypereira comments on Oct 3, 2018:
Well, to enjoy the present is good. Take actions to try to get a better future isn't wrong. Learn from the past is excellent.
Do you love where you live?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 3, 2018:
Well, Dublin weather is crap, it's expensive but always good gigs and fun around. So, not a bad place to live in.
Homosexuality?
Paddypereira comments on Oct 2, 2018:
I don't know. I had a classmate that would have very feminine posture, his amount of feminine hormones was high, if he's gay, that would explain his case. So, how far it's natural it's debatable.
Question about finding the right person.
Paddypereira comments on Sep 30, 2018:
Well, there's always someone who feels right to us. The problem sometimes is finding that person.
Do atheists, who find no magic in the world, live drab, boring lives, by comparison?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 29, 2018:
Well, I spend my day chasing leprechauns just for the craic.
Watchtower
Paddypereira comments on Sep 29, 2018:
My older brother used to be a JW. Basically, it's all the same, slightly different interpretation of the Bible. JW have a good sense of community between them but believe so much bs that isn't on the Bible that makes you wonder where it came from.
I've asked this question in a different forum, and the answers were interesting.
Paddypereira comments on Sep 29, 2018:
Well, I'm using online dating and see how it goes. Whenever has to happen will happen.
So I grew up in a rather religious Muslim family and I remember my family being pretty superstitious...
Paddypereira comments on Sep 28, 2018:
Jaysus, no!!! There's always silly superstition but those you described are quite weird.
Are you an example for people around you?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 25, 2018:
I don't know.
It's my birthday! 🎉🎉🎉🎉 I scheduled 3 job interviews today.
Paddypereira comments on Sep 25, 2018:
Happy birthday, lass, good luck!
Today, a guy tried to pass me a flyer for the Universal Church of The Kingdom of God.
Paddypereira comments on Sep 25, 2018:
The worst of that it's they are tax free. We work hard and pay taxes to have our own things.
What was the best first date you've had?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 24, 2018:
Halloween. Ended up staying at her gaff for the night and her cats sleeping near me like they were watching over me. The day after, Motorhead concert. Couldn't get much better than that.
Anyone else feel isolated?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 24, 2018:
At the moment, it's me who's trying to isolate himself.
Do you think there should be a high school course to teach common sense laws to teenagers?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 23, 2018:
Common sense isn't that common any more, I'm afraid.
Men who never learned to cook
Paddypereira comments on Sep 22, 2018:
I can cook a bit. I live on my own. To cook for myself, I never bother too much, just to feed myself in a satisfactory manner. Cooking for a few friends, that gives me a kick. I don't do it often, unfortunately. It's always a good thing when you can cook a bit.
How many atheists here are musicians/artists
Paddypereira comments on Sep 22, 2018:
I play bass in a band and I sometimes write poetry.

FAQ- who are we?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 22, 2018:
Human beings.
Why do young guys think sarcasm is positive?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 21, 2018:
When used for sense of humour, it's positive, I think. It also depends on how it's used though. I have a mate who is quite sarcastic but he uses it in his particular way that I find funny. I might be wrong on this but it's a way to see things.
Have you met anyone from this site?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 20, 2018:
Most of the people here live too far away from me. Nevertheless, maybe I'll meet someone from here, even if it's for a pint and yapping.
Are common interests important to you?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 20, 2018:
Well, it helps but it's not all. I have good friends that have little in commm with me.
Where are you from?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 20, 2018:
Curiosity. What's wrong with that? Being Portuguese I'm proud of where I come from. I live in Dublin, Ireland. Plenty of people from different countries. Different attitudes. All good.
I could use some words of wisdom, friends.
Paddypereira comments on Sep 19, 2018:
I don't know what to tell you, people will try to help you but everyone has a different opinion and do things differently. While you're working there keep your journal going, write down everything. One thing for sure is to try to find a better workplace. I believe you will make the decision when the time comes for the best or for the worst. I'll be here and support you, specially after passing through a similar situation, not as heavy as yours though. All the best, don't give in, never surrender.

Paddypereira comments on Sep 18, 2018:

Well, it's a good thing, the boy scouts. Check things well.
Why is it that most people here are from the US?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 15, 2018:
Well, I'm Portuguese and I live in Dublin, Ireland. Hopefully it'll make me one of a kind here... Lol!!! I don't give a rat's a**e where most come from, I'm more worried about having people with good attitude.
My son found the black and white aerial photo of our place taken before 1982 when we moved here.

Paddypereira comments on Sep 13, 2018:
Depends. Today I'm doing tango. Sometimes, I just stay at home and relax. Sometimes I go for a pint with friends.
Music or no music during sex?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 12, 2018:
Well, actually I never had music playing during sex. I don't think it's a big deal. I don't think I would pay attention to what's playing while having sex anyway...
Would you pay someone to date you?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 12, 2018:
No. I paid for many things but that's one I think I won't.

Lisbon, working.
What do you guys think.
Paddypereira comments on Sep 11, 2018:
Sorry to hear about that. Well, funerals are more about supporting the grieving families than anything else.
No reason to spend your Monday cranky! [psychologytoday.com]
Paddypereira comments on Sep 10, 2018:
Well, I had a good Monday. I always wake up cranky before going to work, so it doesn't really matter the day of the week.

I already did. Not a problem.
What are you grateful for?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 9, 2018:
The friends that stood by me in my darkest hours. All the travelling I made. The ability of not giving up even when you feel like doing it.
What do you do better than anyone else?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 8, 2018:
Talk shite and be a show off on stage, I guess...
What is something you ate growing up that you never ate again once you became an adult?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 8, 2018:
Actually, there are more things that I used to dislike when I was a kid and I love now than anything else. Am I the opposite of the rest of the World on this??? Lol!!!
You are your worst critic? Is that quote true or false?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 8, 2018:
Sometimes you have to. The hardest part is knowing when you have to be like that and when to relax and let go.
What is your favorite place you've ever lived?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 8, 2018:
My place.

Jaysus, that's a tough one :Tony Iommi, Jimmy Page, John Petrucci, Paul Gilbert, Randy Rhoads, Alex Skolnick...
Letting people know I'm agnostic?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 8, 2018:
He who owes nothing fears nothing. Why hide you're agnostic? There's nothing wrong in that.
Long distance relationships : can they work when both parties haven't even met irl?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 8, 2018:
I have. Didn't work. Sometimes we need the physical presence of our partner, when he/she can't be there it's not a good feeling.
How can we find the truth about "God"?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 7, 2018:
When we die, I think. Not believing in God is one thing, the fact of God's existence is another.
How many people on here are here to connect with other atheist for dating?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 7, 2018:
Well, I'm single. When things must happen, they simply happen. If I meet my next date through here, great. In the meantime, I better enjoy the rest. I don't even worry about that.
Are you an early bird or night owl?
Paddypereira comments on Sep 6, 2018:

Sorry to hear that. Well, everyone is different. That's their way to cope with it. You have your own that works for you. Simple as that.
