Hello, all.

I came to atheism late in life after a long period of skepticism, finally I decided that without compelling evidence the only rational choice is to be an atheist. If I hear a voice out of a burning bush tomorrow, and can't find any hidden speakers, don't have a brain tumor, etc... well, I would have to re-evaluate my stand I suppose.
I'm divorced and a father of one (who doesn't live with me but visits a lot), I'm interested in meeting ladies who share my interests: movies, reading, travel... and I'm open to building new interests. I'm a socially liberal Democrat, regardless of that I own and shoot a number of handguns for sport and defense. I believe we need a more equitable distribution of wealth in our society but we won't get that by rioting and looting big-screen TVs.

What am I gonna do about it? Party hearty in Hell if it turns out he's right, I guess. But consider the track record of making up shit as he goes along, on every topic under the sun. Claimed the Sandy Hook victims were child actors... that Democrat judges erase votes in computer files... that the Charlottesville riots were instigated by liberals (using more actors, dressed up as white supremacists) to create racial hatred. So it's no surprise that he knows jack about atheists as well. What am I really gonna do about it? Ignore this clown.

Paul4747 comments on Jul 10, 2018:
Spot on. McConnell was frustrated in his stated goal of making Obama a "one-term President". Even in Obama's first term McConnell set a course of doing everything possible to frustrate the Democrat agenda and make it impossible to compile a record of achievements, thus keeping the economy as slow as possible and preparing the field for a Republican victory in 2012. When that failed, he simply, bitterly, refused to accept the will of the people and saw it as his role to frustrate Obama by any means possible. Even G. W. Bush was accorded more respect by the Democrats as to the prerogatives of his office than was Obama by Republicans, who frequently treated Obama with open, public contempt. That should have been no surprise to anyone who paid attention during Clinton's presidency, though, when the Democrat was accused of being a rapist, a murderer, and an incompetent by Republicans on their flagship cable network, night after night. Yet any criticism of a Republican is "liberal bias". And so it goes...

A., I'm very sorry for what you went through. Nobody should suffer that. B., the occasional spanking in my childhood did not have that effect on me. Looking back on it, it's rather humorous now. Nor did a couple of occasions years ago have any effect on my child or our relationship. She's about to go into high school this year and we've never been closer. Every situation and every family is different. There's no blanket way to say "spanking is abuse", because it's not. Clearly you were abused. I wasn't. My kid wasn't. Every situation is different.
Just how much do you think religion is holding back fundamental scientific research and advancement?...
Paul4747 comments on Jul 9, 2018:
Religion in the US has certainly held back stem cell research. The idea that god is sending signs of the End Times has certainly made Xians resist the truth about climate change. As has the idea that we don't need to care for our planet, because we're appointed rulers over it. Religion worldwide has meant people ignore scientific explanations and cures for disease and even epidemics. Lead to our demise? Well, that's a stretch.

A professional counselor, not using a 12-step program, would be the one to seek out in my opinion. If I recall, the very first step of the 12 is the "higher power" one. That's essentially admitting a person has no control over themselves and asking an outside, fictional being to run things. As an atheist, I have real issues with that. Behavioral counseling would be the way to go.

Are atheists criticising the wrong things about religion?
Paul4747 comments on Jul 6, 2018:
I criticize religion for getting people killed, over fairy tales. When people bomb each other over who owns "the holy land". When lobbyists convince a President to go to war because it's all part of the End Times. When imams promulgate tales that Western medicine is designed to kill Muslims, so their children won't be vaccinated against deadly diseases. When Catholic Cardinals spread tales that condoms don't actually stop AIDS. Believe what you want for yourself. Believe in Allah, Jesus, Shiva, the Tooth Fairy. Right up until it costs people their real lives. At that point, I have a problem with you.

Athiests and Guns
Paul4747 comments on Jul 5, 2018:
I'm a shooter, collector, LEO and self-defense advocate who also agitates for stricter screening, training, and licensing procedures. (Emphasis on the training before giving someone a permit.) So I don't see a conflict. Once someone is licensed, they should be considered trustworthy, even in the so-called "gun free zones", which are an invitation to criminals, who by definition aren't going to obey those signs. The only influence being an atheist has on my positions is that I don't go so much with the "god-given rights" BS.

Is anti-theism on a par with racism?
Paul4747 comments on Jul 5, 2018:
NO idea is beyond criticism. Religions explicitly try to set themselves up as a category apart from all others, claiming that they aren't even ideas, but rather revelations from a divine source, and thus immune to criticism. Yet, if you notice, each religion criticizes all other religions. Religion cannot logically plead a special immunity. There's no special exemption for any category of thought. Religion is as open to critique as any other. Atheism or antitheism is not bigotry, it's simply an opinion. A religion is not something inborn to a person, like skin color, it's acquired and can be shed just as easily.This is just another of the religions' ploys to give themselves a special exemption.

1) The state police know, my purchases are registered, and it's nobody else's business. 2) I have take pride in being responsible and in proving it. I've taken extensive training and further I'm in law enforcement. I feel anyone who is licensed for carry should be trained to similar standards first. 3) Firearms can be banned based on what they do, but too many want to ban them because they look scary. 4) See points 2 and 3. Law enforcement has access to all kinds of weapons, let's be specific. I don't want tear gas or door breachers, but I would like to own an AR someday to remember my days in the Army. It's a heck of a rifle. 5) I feel safe in my community because I carry a gun. Average 911 response time is 11 minutes. That's a time to wait if my life or someone else's is on the line. 6) You're absolutely right with your last statement, that you're making generalizations- so why conclude with a sweeping and over-the-top generalization? Oversight is inherent in the process of carrying firearms, and any responsible gun owner knows this. The vast majority of gun owners are responsible gun owners. 7) I carry no water for the NRA. Their leadership are NOT responsible gun owners, they're jackasses.

Paul4747 comments on Jul 4, 2018:
But, as Christopher Hitchens pointed out ("God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything"), the more-or-less decent 97% enable the other 3%. They make excuses and explain how the radical fringe doesn't "really" represent their religion, but don't understand that the religion itself is the problem. Its very existence allows anyone to pick and choose what they want to believe and how they want to act on it, because there's supposedly an authority figure in the sky who said all these things. For example: Until the Vatican comes out and disavows all its former papal teachings, cardinals will still teach that birth control is a sin, and unplanned pregnancies and AIDS will continue. And even then, the church would schism and there would arise a "true" faith. *Religion itself is the problem.*

In grad school, got engaged to someone 7 years younger. My ex is 3 1/2 years older. Now in my 50s and divorced, I've been out with ladies several years older and younger both, and exactly my age too. Maybe I defy the norm, maybe I just can't guess women's ages, maybe I'm just attracted no matter the age.

Never mind that economic history and basic math should tell us that this model has repeatedly failed. There's NO direct relation between tax rates and economic growth.

Paul4747 comments on Jul 4, 2018:
I'm sorry about your experience, but a thing I've noticed is that there is in people a tendency to generalize from one experience and apply that to all similar experiences. I mean that, since you've had a negative experience of people who "lack the capacity to truly love", perhaps you generalized that to everyone. People do have a capacity to truly love, in my experience, but not everyone expresses it the same way. Certainly abuse is not under any circumstances an expression of love... but not all relationships are abusive by any means.

Atheists and agnostics aren't organized. We have no meeting places or PACs. We don't protest against Supreme Court decisions from decades ago or have interest groups recommending nominees to Presidents. We don't SCREAM about how oppressed we are. So because we're quiet and polite, we underestimate our own numbers. The evangelicals screaming in the street are like puffer fish, inflating themselves and exaggerating their own importance. The result: we think we're outnumbered, when in fact, if we regard ourselves as a group, we are the largest single point of view.

So overall... we did, sort of, for a while?

Not joking here- the virgin thing was a mis-translation, it was supposed to be "72 white grapes of exceptional purity" (something like that, it's the grape thing that I remember best). Imagine how great it will be once people everywhere realize that all religions are just interesting fairy tales, made up back when we didn't understand how the world got here and what thunder was...
A new study has reported that iPhone users have more sex. Is there an app for that?
Paul4747 comments on Jul 4, 2018:
Maybe in the Google Play store...
What about Last Rites. Would you object to a Cathoiic Priest administering on your deathbed?
Paul4747 comments on Jul 3, 2018:
Meh, what do I care what a priest does with his time? If he brings wine, he can stay. But he'd better have a sense of humor.
Praying for something to happen is akin to doing nothing...

People who believe pray for loved ones because there's nothing else they can do. They're not doctors and nurses or research chemists. Research has shown that prayer doesn't improve recovery, it even hinders it when people know they're being prayed for (patients may feel pressured to get better), but nevertheless I understand the feeling of helplessness and wanting to turn to a higher power. Sometimes, for instance when my ex-mother in law was diagnosed with cancer, I wish there was a power to turn to. My ex and her family are all devout. I wish I could tell them I was praying. But they know I don't pray. They know that my best wishes are with them, though, and they don't doubt my love. (Yeah, even though it's my ex, I still love her as a friend and mother of my child. I'm very lucky we had a cordial divorce.)

It's not really about "priority". Everybody could be taken care of, if the top 1/2% weren't being given priority in the current budget. Here's how the GOP thinking goes, for the most part: We have a deficit? Cut taxes on the wealthy, that increases revenue! We have a surplus? Cut taxes on the wealthy, they've paid so much already!!! I'm talking about the actual budgets that are passed, not the lip service "tax cuts for the middle class", which come out to about $300/year for the vast majority of taxpayers, while the very top get tens and hundreds of thousands.
Some lucky FBI agents! Lol!

Frankly, nothing yet... although I have a shaving brush that I've never used for shaving. It does feel very nice on the skin, though.
I thought that most people on this website had some intelligence, but tonight proved me wrong

Then I presume you'll either be A) no longer gracing us with your presence, or B) explaining what your frakking problem is.
Do you believe in law of attraction?
Paul4747 comments on Jun 30, 2018:
I believe that's the distance squared law. Or cube. Something like that. Sir Isaac Newton.
Anthony Kennedy's son was Trump's moneylender at Deutsche Bank

Moneylender has such a great ring to it. You want Jesus to show up and beat his ass.
50 Reasons to Bail Out of the Two-Party System and Become an Independent Voter [ivn.us]
Paul4747 comments on Jun 30, 2018:
3 Reasons why this was not anything worth reading: 1) 50 sentences with a number on the beginning of each are not 50 separate reasons. They are sentences which properly belong in fully developed paragraphs. Separating an ABCD chain of logic into A B C D doesn't make it 4 different thoughts. 2) Who was so pretentious as to print quotes from the article in bold type, in the middle of the article... highlighting the author's words as if they were an independent quote agreeing with the article? 3) I can't begin to sum up how many things were flawed with these ideas. Argument from popularity - most people aren't affiliated with a party now, this is a good reason to be an independent. The notion that the internet is a reliable source for everything you need to know about a candidate (because nothing is ever not true on the internet). Argument from authority- famous figures in the past agree with me. I have no problem with pointing out the flaws of the party system, but idealists who wanted to protest against it by voting for their more perfect candidates are partly responsible for Trump winning. A few percent here and there was the difference. They need to own that. The perfect is the enemy of the good.

Wait... why does she clearly need my seat? Yeah, I'm going to give my seat up to someone in distress, but wouldn't a senior citizen need it more? Isn't feminism all about equality?
Looks like something trying to escape

While it's technically legal to go commando after memorial day... Not like that.
