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), currently in a relationship with someone who may or may not be a believer... she says Christian-like things sometimes but also says she doesn't know what she believes. It's complicated. The point is, we're happy right now and hopefully that will continue.

Paul4747 comments on Dec 24, 2018:
Another way to phrase that would be "a lawsuit against a so-called journalist who was a willing tool of the Putin regime, leaking hacked emails from the Democratic party." There's no right anywhere to take stolen property as a gift. They're just as guilty as if they'd done the hacking themselves; particularly since they chose to release the information in bits and pieces, carefully timed to do the most damage to Clinton's campaign. That's not journalism. They're a tool of the Russian government, who wanted another tool to win the U.S. election. Meanwhile, all the "exposing" he has done is against Western interests, completely ignoring Russian oppression and outright murder of dissidents, including journalists. Wanna talk about assaults on journalists? Lat's talk about Putin, who actually has them assaulted.

Paul4747 comments on Dec 24, 2018:
What's more disturbing is when people give thanks for being "spared" in a horrible storm or fire or some such, implying that god chose other people's homes to wipe out. This leads to a sense of smugness and moral superiority which is totally undeserved; a sense of being "chosen". It also bothers me when people pray to be cured of diseases. If they're not cured, what does that say about their wish-granting god? Did they not pray hard enough? Or is God just a dick for not granting their wish?

Last year: Took presents over to the ex's for my daughter in the morning. Opened a couple for myself. Watched Die Hard and Lethal Weapon (the Xmas classics) and heated myself a Hungry Man dinner. I can't improve on that plan this year, as my hopes for getting laid in 2018 have dwindled beyond vanishing point. No big deal, at least now I don't have a partner where I *would* be thinking I should get some action on the holiday...

Jesus loves you? What does it mean to you?
Paul4747 comments on Dec 22, 2018:
I remember as a little kid singing the "Jesus loves me" song. As I got older I started thinking, but does he even know me? We never met. Would he even like me? Imagine if we were watching a movie together, or a football game. "Jesus is a bro to me." Knowing from textual analysis that Jesus was very prejudiced against non-Jews, I doubt we would get along.
Found this today in the grocery store. Why is it so expensive? Did Jesus make it?
Paul4747 comments on Dec 22, 2018:
So, I looked up EZ 4:9 (NIV) and a few verses beyond... 9 “Take wheat and barley, beans and lentils, millet and spelt; put them in a storage jar and use them to make bread for yourself. You are to eat it during the 390 days you lie on your side. 10 Weigh out twenty shekels[a] of food to eat each day and eat it at set times. 11 Also measure out a sixth of a hin[b] of water and drink it at set times. 12 Eat the food as you would a loaf of barley bread; bake it in the sight of the people, using human excrement for fuel.” 13 The Lord said, “In this way the people of Israel will eat defiled food among the nations where I will drive them.” So I'm guessing the ingredients are wheat, barley, beans, lentils, millet, and whatever the fuck "spelt" is. My real quandary here is; do they bake this stuff in a human-excrement-fueled oven?

Trump hints at firing Fed Chairman Jerome Powell. THE CHAIRMAN IS DOING HIS JOB STUPID!
Paul4747 comments on Dec 22, 2018:
"Doing your job" has never been a job qualification under Trump's administration. We are actually due for a small recession, historically speaking. Trump's afraid it will reflect badly on him (which it should, since everything he's pushed is absolutely horrible policy for the economy). The Fed wants to raise rates a little so that when the recession hits, they have a tool (lowering rates!) to stoke the economy again. But then Trump's short-term economy isn't as YUUUGE!!!! as he wants it to be. Anything that doesn't help out the Trump 2020 campaign is bad policy, in his eyes.
Trump vs. Obama: a new theory of why Republicans and Democrats fight - Vox
Paul4747 comments on Dec 21, 2018:
I'm not sure how new this theory is. "Republicans want things to stay the same and fear change; they fear people who are not like themselves... Democrats are the party of "inclusion" and hate the old school who discriminate and fear-monger..." This goes back at least to the 1960s. The author has just put some nice labels on it.

Paul4747 comments on Dec 21, 2018:
And the point of this quote is? Simply preparing for war does not bring peace, but nor does simply hoping for peace in the face of those who are prepared to use war as a means to their ends. The history of the Cold War bears this out. True, there were numerous small-scale brushfire wars, but the world-wide conflict everyone feared between East and West never materialized; because the NATO countries were prepared for war, the USSR had no realistic chance of expanding its dominion without resorting to nuclear weapons and thus mutual destruction.

How Many Trump Rallies Do You Think Trump Has Done POST ELECTION?
Paul4747 comments on Dec 18, 2018:
Technically, since he filed IMMEDIATELY for reelection, isn't every appearance a campaign rally? I think one of the next priorities for Congress (under the next President obviously) has to be campaign finance reform, including putting a "season" on political campaigning and fund-raising; let's say no earlier than 6 months before the election. Unofficially putting your name in the hat? Fine. Officially filing and taking in campaign funds? Nope. Not before April.

Paul4747 comments on Dec 16, 2018:
I..... yiyiyiyi would have to grit my teeth and hope that she would work with the more moderate center of the party. Specifically, I would want to avoid any notion that the gun control legislation on the books in the most liberal bastions, for instance CA, NY and IL, are also going to be a blanket cure for every state in the Union. Federalism means that those states have a right to pass those laws if the people wanted it. But the MidWest is not the same as the East and West. We're a more moderate type of liberal here, especially on the gun issue. With you all the way on assistance for the poor, leveling the playing field, education, tax breaks for the middle class... and universal background checks to keep guns out of the wrong hands. Just don't try to tell me that my guns are unsafe in my hands because of the size of the magazine, please and thank you.

Holy crap, I hope so. Trouble is, they're such a loud bloc of voters and they turn out at every damn election, so they swing more power than they should account for by their numbers. If atheists, for example, were organized around the issues we cared about, like free speech and so on, we would swing more weight than them. But atheists/agnostics are all over the map politically. It's only religion where we tend to agree.

How can modern man believe in a God?
Paul4747 comments on Dec 10, 2018:
I still remember, as a child, being taught the song "Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so". The next verse talked about how children especially are under his protection because "they are weak but he is strong". It would be very comforting to accept the message that there's a supernatural, omnipotent protector right now looking out for me. I think that's part of the answer; as Wilhelm Reich postulated, people often seem to desire a dictatorial protector to run their lives, and a God person would fulfill that role. However, I accept personal responsibility for my life, and I know that scientifically there is almost certainly no God. (I wouldn't mind a Goddess, though...)
Dealing with religious people at work
Paul4747 comments on Dec 10, 2018:
At one point I had a partner who kept mentioning religious topics and then becoming irate because I would use logic and textual analysis to shoot his ideas down. He kept getting so mad at me continually (and I would be so amused in return) that eventually he just decided the only way to work with me was to stop talking about religion; which was fine with me, because I think he was trying to convert me to begin with. It was his failure that irked him so.

I guess that's their response to me, saving them all the hassle of saying "sorry, not interested". I actually appreciate knowing someone is not interested, it shows the person is willing to take the time to consider me in the first place.
GHW Bush is dead, at 94. Meh.
Paul4747 comments on Dec 1, 2018:
By comparison with the other Republican presidents in my lifetime (an admittedly low bar as far as I'm concerned), he did the least damage. He signed an income tax increase in violation of his own campaign rhetoric and took the heat for it from his far-right wing. He took us into a war to repel a genuine aggression in violation of international law, and then stopped before we could replace Iraq's government and become involved in a nation-building exercise. He stepped firmly on his dong when he encouraged the Kurds to rebel, and then, because of political calculations (we still needed a counterweight against Iran, even a weakened one) did nothing to stop Saddam slaughtering them and burying them in mass graves- the very graves his son's administration used as retroactive justification for our second invasion. And I hold no brief for the way both he and Reagan propped up both sides of the Iran-Iraq war until Saddam went against one of our oil-producing allies. Domestically, his continuation of Reagan's policies- kinder and gentler, but still blaming poor people for being poor- I believe were a result of the prosperity gospel that many of his age grew up with; if you're a good person, then God will look after you, and if you're not, then your faults find you out. The reverse of this is that wealth is a sign of good character and hard work, while poverty means you're slovenly and have no redeeming qualities. This is still the basic economic foundation of the Republican party, where it takes the form of social Darwinism: look after the rich, because they're the superior breed. We're better off without the poor weighing us down. All in all, though, considering the Republicans who have come after him, I prefer GHWB. He was still more or less a gentleman, and his was a better generation. It's hard to imagine him sending twitter rants. I always felt that Barbara looked like his mother, though. :p

Why Dont We Ever Call White Extremists Terrorists? [news.vice.com]
Paul4747 comments on Nov 28, 2018:
What type of terrorism are you talking about, exactly? Timothy McVeigh was a terrorist (blew up the Federal Building in Oklahoma City). People like Dylan Rooff are not. I think the authors of the article (and the ADL) draw a false equivalency between hate crimes and terrorism. Terrorists have a political objective. While some may be attracted to the politics of terrorist groups, they're not acting to further those objectives; they're using them as an excuse to act out their own hateful power fantasies.

John Allen Chau, Preacher killed by Natives, Appalling Atheist Reactions - YouTube
Paul4747 comments on Nov 23, 2018:
Religious people regularly call it "God's judgment" for someone's imagined crimes when terrible things happen. Recall Jerry Falwell's hateful comments after 9/11, when he blamed the terrorist attack on the Roe v Wade decision, among others... gay people, unwed mothers, and atheists I believe were among those he blamed for God "allowing" the attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. Here we have actual crimes for which someone suffered the ultimate price. I think atheists have a right to equal time for calling people out when they bring punishment upon themselves.

That was all more than 4 generations ago. I was born right here. Can't we all be American Americans?

You have to live the life, baby.... Just as David Koresh claimed he was committing every possible sin so that he would be better equipped as a savior. You have to understand the sinner's point of view. Which, I admit, makes a twisted kind of sense. Nobody is going to accept that a Catholic priest understands the difficulties of marriage except via academic knowledge. That's part of the problem with an officially celibate (and repressed) clergy.
Hmmmm... Do you think that anyone will still want to compromise when it comes to behavior changes in...

That's a tricky one. I've met someone finally (not to jinx the whole thing, please don't jinx the whole thing) with whom things are going pretty well, been on a couple dates, talk almost daily, etc... and the thing is, she hasn't asked me to change. I haven't felt the urge to change. I'm at that point where I have the warm glow and whatever she feels like doing is fine by me, and yet the things she feels like doing are things I had wanted to try anyway, I just didn't want to try them alone. Like, I don't know jack about sushi... well, she does, and she was my guide. I like stargazing, but it's not as much fun by yourself... one day real soon, I hope. I guess I'm saying, if you're lucky, you meet someone who takes you as is. I feel like maybe I've been that lucky, finally. Took long enough.

Now why can't I go into business as a designer? Obviously no talent is required.

Gee, just imagine, mental illness is caused by not following god's law. Here I thought it was a combination of organic and environmental factors. Do doctors know this? It's been pointed out, more aptly than I can here, that following "God's law" would include putting children to death for disrespecting their parents, killing blasphemers, adulterers, any bride found not a virgin on her wedding night (if the husband so chooses- the man is free to be as licentious as he wants, of course), and people who gather sticks on the Sabbath, to name but a few. I find atheism a much more peaceful way of life and with much less suffering.

I'm currently working on a title for my book on the topic of "people who assume all white men are racists". Any suggestions? Seriously, not everything is explained by playing that card.

Sinuses. Let's design a wet bag with drainage holes at the top. Yeah. Also, the recurrent laryngeal nerve, which takes a huge detour en route to its destination. If you think we have it bad, pity the poor giraffe.

That would be going to a lot of time and trouble just to make Trump look like a jerk... much easier to just repeat some of his tweets.

The thing about this issue that sickens me is that I'm *automatically* labeled as a potential threat, by virtue of my gender. The last thing I want to do is hurt anyone... but how do I show that? Wear an "Absolutely Harmless, Trust Me" t-shirt?
