Robecology comments on Jun 11, 2019:
Sorry you're "deeply pessimistic" about life. Please read some Richard Dawkins. You're so very lucky to be alive... Although your quote about "hope" is accurate. Sorry for your "pessimism". I "hope" you read this, and somehow become more "optimistic"....
[cnn.com] Pompeo suggests people should move if they don't like climate change. - Is he a moron?...
Robecology comments on Jun 11, 2019:
Pompeo is religious; he often talks about "being blessed" and "blessings to you and your family"....but he seems to carry on intelligent conversations; so as an ecologist/Environmentalist, I'm disappointed about his comments regarding "climate change" - yet I'm impressed with his efforts to gain knowledge. So as unreal as it seems, Pompeo also seems to know what he's doing in politics...albeit a bit of a "traditionalist" approach...he's well versed in "intelligence" (per se...see this; https://www.cbsnews.com/news/transcript-mike-pompeo-talks-with-michael-morell-on-intelligence-matters/ But most, if not all "religous" are #religulous" to me. They look at climate as "god's will" they minimize man's influence on it. They ignore the profit/greed motive for the fossil fuel push. And there's the rub. Is he intentionally ignoring the profiteers? Does he truly believe "it's in god's hands"? Or does he make the connection between the profit motive and the build-up of our "greenhouse" and inevitable ensuing disasters? That's a tough call. Read the interview. It's very detailed...and a bit revealing of Pompeo's personality.
Religion in a relationship
Robecology comments on Jun 10, 2019:
They became a "spousal" relationship because they obviously love eachother...So if you meet a religious person who's really a winner - and he thinks he same of you - then you need to have a serious conversation together about compromise.

Robecology comments on Jun 10, 2019:
OK. You admitted it. You said you're an idiot. But let's be real; That's not the normal you. Now how do you fix this? How do you go from idiot to wise and shrewd? Here's my recommendation #1..You admitted you're an idiot; but that's not who you normally are; Realize that this was the idiot side of you who called her. That's not normally who you are. She is obviously an obsession of your "idiot" persona. She likes him. She's been intimate with him. This isn't your fault. It's her loss. #2. Her attraction to him isn't based on anything he did to you; Why did "the idiot" think he needs his teeth knocked out...Does "the idiot" (your alter-ego) need to be in jail? Remember - you're not an idiot. You need to erase this persona. Get back to the man she was impressed with; the shrewd and wise one. Erase the idiot. #3. You need to go from hatred to indifference ASAP. How? Block her phone # and/or remove it from your phone. Write down on a note and hang it on the fridge; "You want to move from hatred to indifference ASAP." Find ways to be OK being alone. Get back in to a hobby. Or cooking. or fixing the car. Spend time contacting new people. Going out with old friends not related to her Get some gym equipment. Do some workouts at home. No one to 'impress" there. Do this. Now. You'll thank me later.

Robecology comments on Jun 10, 2019:
Bingo....you touched on the major flaw of the 2nd amendment. And what's a "well disciplined militia"? Isn't it clear in the 2nd amendment that in order to "bear arms" you have to be a member of a "well disciplined militia"? I sure hope that in 2020 we have such a sweeping change in politicians that some brave soul finally proposes a re-write for this terribly written and obviously out-dated legal document.

What is your experience with online dating?
Robecology comments on Jun 10, 2019:
Some good came of it...I met three "lovers" - one whom I married - then divorced....but overall; it was a useful tool. I'm talking about almost pre-internet days (late 80's) until less than 10 years ago...and quite a lot has changed since then. The best; most recommended? POF, OKCupid - only because they were free. Eharmony and Match proved (to me) to be waste of time...and money. Right now? I've met no-one through Agnostic but I can see how it could be a useful - and free - dating site. Right now the population (of this site) seems too low to find a like-minded person within a reasonable distance....but that could change.

Tequila's fun...anyone notice a slightly different "high"? ...and I'll "taste" a liquer every now and then... Beer? The cheap stuff is fine to me...every once in a while. A feature that "sold" me on my new home is a separate "bar" complete with mirrors and glass shelves. I hung a couple of glass racks at the top....and I'm proud of the look!

[cnn.com] Pompeo suggests people should move if they don't like climate change. - Is he a moron?...
Robecology comments on Jun 10, 2019:
He makes a good point. Most people who live close to rising shore lines -and who can afford to do so - are moving. The property value in some of these area are going down....and the insurance rates are going up. Except for future developers....who know how to "raise the ground level, elevate driveways, etc....so this is, in fact, happening now. And the rich are getting richer...while the poor get poorer. Watch this shocking aerial view of Bangladesth....then read - the coming floods, or sudden sea-level rise in these areas will kill a million or more overnight. There are few other places to go when your country is being slowly swallowed by the sea. Climate experts predict that by 2050, rising sea levels will submerge some 17 percent of the nation’s land and displace about 20 million people. And the whole of Bangladesh is roughly the size of Iowa. So Dhaka, for so many of its transplants, is a city of last resort. But the #Religulous Republicans will call it "god's plan" and "natural birth control" https://www.nrdc.org/onearth/bangladesh-country-underwater-culture-move

The more crowded the world gets. the harder it is to find and develop a good partner relationship. It's been proven scientifically. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1501789/pdf/califmed00143-0080.pdf So just keep sharing. Keep pod-casting. Keep putting yourself out there. The number of "eligible" women are decreasing - both as we age and as the world grows....but they're still there. (I'm projecting here; I'm alone and happily in love with myself). Evaluate your potential better. You say " there's a logic reason why I shoot younger" but that doesn't explain why you get tongue-tied or lose your cool when chatting with them... So take stock. Ask yourself how women would rate me...am I a 10? a 7? a 5? And that number should match what you're "shooting for". Maybe you experience a yang in your yin because you're ego makes you 'shoot" for too young, too hot, too eligible"? Good luck...and luck helps. Keep trying.

This man was as close to a Cannabis addict as you might have met. But they're out there. I knew one. Died young. decades ago. Loved running and staying fit....but also had a chronic cough from an almost non-stop cannabis smoking habit. I agree with you...legalization will help the nation - but not just because of the obvious positives. Yes - regulation will make jobs. Keep folk out of prison. Allow users to know the strength of their product. Allow huge tax incomes. Reduce the legal expenses of persecution and imprisonment. Free many who've been unjustly accused. But... I think it will give a chance for fellows like you met to get help without fear of legal retaliation. I stopped only because I kept checking my BP when high...and it was through the roof. And there's many death certificates out there that lie when they say the cause of death was a stroke or heart attack. Us users know the truth. Their families know the truth. It was an "overdose" of powerful cannabis. Don't tell me you can't be addicted to cannabis or die from it. I've seen it happen.

Robecology comments on Jun 8, 2019:
Chemistry or "spark" is important...but too often it's something subtle - even subconscious - that triggers - or doesn't trigger - this spark. That's why several dates and "taking it slowly" is important. Habits - good and bad - need to come out. The tolerance for habits needs to be tested. This takes time to make a relationship work.

The fame he gained in his television career allowed him to become an advocate for the protection of endangered species, and through Wild Kingdom he gave many Americans their first exposure to the conservation movement. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marlin_Perkins And, yes....I'm 73 years "young".
Does being Buddhist make one an atheist?
Robecology comments on Jun 8, 2019:
It's a good question; only because Buddhism doesn't believe in anything mythical happening to the founder, Buddha...Although the stories of his life are filled with alleged mythology, there's nothing about him dying and being 'reborn' or being born of a virgin. One of its principles, however, will make you "religious" for following it...and atheist for not following. ** The concept of believing in "re-birth" or coming back to life in different forms. ** This has no foundation in reality. No evidence. No support. Not one scientific hint of reality. Hence; *if you follow any of their teachings...you are technically "theist"..*.. Buddhism (/ˈbʊdɪzəm/ is the world's fourth-largest religion with over 520 million followers, or over 7% of the global population, known as Buddhists. Buddhism encompasses a variety of traditions, beliefs and spiritual practices largely based on original teachings attributed to the Buddha and resulting interpreted philosophies. Buddhism originated in ancient India as a Sramana tradition sometime between the 6th and 4th centuries BCE, spreading through much of Asia. Two major extant branches of Buddhism are generally recognized by scholars: Theravada (Pali: "The School of the Elders") and Mahayana (Sanskrit: "The Great Vehicle"). A note about BCE; BCE (Before Common Era) and BC (Before Christ) mean the same thing- previous to year 1 CE (Common Era). This is the same as the year AD 1 Most Buddhist traditions share the goal of overcoming suffering and the ***cycle of death and rebirth***, either by the attainment of Nirvana or through the path of Buddhahood. Buddhist schools vary in their interpretation of the path to liberation, the relative importance and canonicity assigned to the various Buddhist texts, and their specific teachings and practices. This doesn't mean an Atheist can't be "buddhist-like". It's a practice of calming and meditation. It embraces science and wisdom - it doesn't shun it. Perhaps some day there will be a group that practices Buddhism without the belief that you'll die and are reborn. Perhaps some day some scientist(s) will provide evidence that our atoms and molecules can all assemble 100% and form the being of another plant or animal. Odds are good that this might happen... but not good that it can ever be proven.
Forced.

Forget the child rapists. The church has always welcomed male dominance in a relationship...not just against the kids. When women marry, their traditional vows are to "obey" - remember? The church (and for that matter, all the religions of the world) expect male dominance. The men - according to any #religulous - are the family planners. The women "offer" themselves "when the men are ready"....so they've basically fostered rape in relationships; couples have sex when HE's ready....not her. Is it no wonder that the abortion issue is rearing its' ugly head in Republican dominated states?
Ha ha ha. Not even a question.

Uh....let's reverse that offer; would I take it if I had to publicly accept Jesus and go to church every Sunday... No. Can I get offers to pay me to take it if I do that?

Robecology comments on Jun 8, 2019:
There's 3 strategies for handling folk who don't debate well. 1. Ignoring. 2. Blocking 3. Reporting. If they've blocked you...you can reply with a top-level, fact-filled, link-backed debate...or - if you can't reply to her... ...just continue to ignore. Have you considered why she's "harassing" you yet blocked you? ....it could be a love/hate thing. If you can go to their page, then On the right, about half-way down, is "report/block" Do so.
Ya. That'll work.

Gay sex is wayyyyyy overplayed. (and no...I'm not gay and never was...but have had gay friends and family) I've asked several gay couples how they "enjoyed" it...they concurred.. it worked once, failed/was uncomfortable too often... so they just snuggle. They love each-other....and the "horrible" stories about gay sex are just not there. We've seen many "gay couples" - we just never knew they were "gay".... We need to be far more tolerant of same-sex couples. Thanks, @altschmerz for this tongue-in-cheek post!

The first national park...ever...in the U.K. nice! "Peak District National Park Geology" "An area of great diversity, it is mostly split into the Dark Peak, where most of the moorland is found and the geology is gritstone, and the limestone area of the White Peak. The Peak District National Park became the first national park in the United Kingdom in 1951". Peak District - Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peak_District

How do you define love?
Robecology comments on Jun 8, 2019:
It's different from "like". It takes more time to develop. it might be stronger than liking Its' opposite is hate....the end of love is indifference....not hate. Hate is when you've been let down by the alleged love/lover. Indifference also takes more time to develop than hate.
Does anyone else hate the phrase "I love you" ? To me it sounds like "thoughts and prayers" ...
Robecology comments on Jun 8, 2019:
"I love you" has definitely been "overplayed" in my life.. I love the scene; and the innuendo - in Ghost...when she said "I love you" and he said "ditto"... It's so popular that the "clip" has been immortalized; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhkwiJowIUM

Robecology comments on Jun 8, 2019:
The CBS TV series "God friended me" caught my eye because it came right after 20-20. Having watched a few chapters....I like the concept. The story line goes something like " a computer wizard "tags" an atheist/agnostic vocal podcast producer with folk who, at first, he doesn't see why someone named "god" on the internet/facebook would single this "tag" out as a "friend suggestion". But the podcaster seeks the person out...finds out how he's "connected" to the person....does something to "help" that person, and then the show ends...but not before a new "friend suggestion" pops up at the end of an episode. After several episodes, we see the podcaster re-connects with his father ( a very good and seasoned actor who plays a minister in a local church) a smart cutie (for the romance/eye-candy aspect/hook), an asian/middle-eastern computer wizard, and eventually the Computer wizard" who's playing "god" and proposing these weird "friend suggestions". Cute story. Not a bit #religulous but they don't ever "assume" the supernatural elements are either true nor "correct"...but they do point out that they are benevolent (almost beyond belief)
