‘Open to meeting women’ means:

  1. For sharing ideas, conversation and comparing perspectives.

  2. Personally meeting some showing mutual interest in cultivating friendship and social activities. Arresting or discontinuing at this level is just ‘dandy’.

  3. Only a possibility of exclusive intimacy eventuating, should one in particular become special.

So, for women within my age range still seeking ‘that one’ as sole motivation for screening, it is vital to point out that I’m not him.

Though possessing ‘that one’ character traits, at this phase of life I’m leaving the ‘off feet sweeping’ and hip attachment to other generations.

Does anyone think if we get serious that we will be able to save the earth from overheating?
Silver1wun comments on Jun 4, 2018:
There is no way for depth of serousness to control what goes on on the Sun. We can avoid, however, delusions and halucinations by staying out of the Sun's direct rays too long. Might want to give that consideration.

Whoever Controls The Narrative Controls The World [caitlinjohnstone.com]
Silver1wun comments on Jun 4, 2018:
The Internet is already smashing some icons and severely cracking others, without being compromised. It is admittedly taking awhile, but information that is verifiable and conflicting with many sacrosanct 'narratives' is available. Some of the best of it is on youtube. I like youtube because one can ask that classic question of self and others: "What am I going to believe; the narrative or my 'lyin' eyes?" Chief among them is what is (and has been) going on in Palestine and what happens in our streets that is being billed as 'peaceful'.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 4, 2018:
You seem like a sweet person. Maybe this temporary loneliness is a price tag on patience and unwillingness to 'settle' or repeat errors born of wishful thinking. Our standards do improve along the way or we aren't learning much. Being ourselves is, in a way, taking care of Nature by respecting her gifts as an expression of private gratitude I think Nature is about balance; showing overall intentionality in scale balancing events far beyond limitations of personified gods. This too will pass. This atheist sees rain as a good omen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXpUoL52a1w

How do you know when blue cheese has gone bad?
Silver1wun comments on Jun 3, 2018:
If it hasn't 'gone bad' it isn't cheese. Not sure if this is meant to be humorous, co please don't take my answer as an insult. if it's serious, I think its adorable. Cheese can degrade to an unappetizing condition that makes it hardly worth bothering to clean of excess mold sometimes. So far, and I certainly will stand corrected if a factual refutation is forthcoming, I've never seen cheese that went bad in the way it is applied to other types of food,

Silver1wun comments on Jun 3, 2018:
Partisan cattle ALWAYS go into full panic mode when they lose. Left and Right lunatic fringes whine and throw juvenile tantrums and insult in every childish way possible the person chosen by the people under our system.. This time only seems more strident because the whiners have full sympathy and support of the press; but the hysteria is no different. If the party-loyal, ideologically obedient minions of their respective, corrupt masters ever do represent a majority, the Republic and what is left of our constitution will disintegrate. It matters not whether they are a hardened Socialist/Communist fanatic or a Fundamentalist Theological fanatic. The bottom line on them all is: Any of them would violate ANY constitutional principle they thought necessary to advance their ignorance laced ideologies. "We the People' of this republic always choose our chief executive from the middle. The non-affiliated, level headed adults in the socio-political mainstream always hold our collective noses and determine which of the corrupt candidates for Plantation Manager will be hired. The partisans only control who the two 'choices' will be. At least they did until the last election. Corrupt or not, because all politicians are corrupted as a first order of business in D.C., Trump pulled it off and the 'king-makers' lost control. They feed infantile pap to party loyal zombies on both sides and are doing all possible to pull-off a nonviolent (save assassinations) coup; attempting to strangle the People's choice in red tape and baseless inuendos. Really fun to watch!

Nothing in your description suggests that you would insist on her going through a superstitious ritual. Yet she, according to you expects it. On the face of it she's demonstrating a serious lack of respect for who you are. Love respects and admires. If those elements are absent, so is love. One sided love has a short, doomed shelf life. I'd work on self respect and self love and admiration. Because if you are prepared to counterfeit who you are to please a woman who doesn't show respect or tolerance for your differences, you both appear to share the same dim point of view and valuation of... you. Bargain away what little of yourself you hold in esteem this time and you'll have even less to 'bring to the table' next time.

Did you know that Joseph Stalin killed more people than Adolf Hitler?
Silver1wun comments on Jun 2, 2018:
Jo was Russian, like many of the land grabbing invaders and leadership in Israel have been. They really know how to 'spit on their hands' and get it done. It must be so frustrating for the Zionist leaders having such a small piece of real estate and smaller captive population, while being restrained by international law and monitoring. Instead of pursuing a final solution by 'scalping the lawn' they must settle for 'mowing the grass'. Jo and Adolf weren't under such restraints.
Identity Politics
Silver1wun comments on Jun 2, 2018:
Exactly what Huey was talking about. People have this deranged compulsion to 'belong' to a political movement, philosophy or party; seemingly as a confirmation of their worthiness or validation of positions with which they find an identity. They are all the same (include religion in that) faith based chicken in a pot with pie in the sky for dessert. Artifice to titillate imaginations and keep stomachs empty. Loved Huey's style! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MKb35NK0F0

Silver1wun comments on Jun 1, 2018:
This isn't the first post I've seen from women who seem to draw the attention, especially critical attention of grown men who express themselves like juveniles. It led me to wonder how prevalent is this crap? Do you females really get such a surge of obnoxious and judgmental indictments from males with whom you've never communicated, let alone met?? I've only been on this about six months. Visitors number around 150. about 21 women have sent private messages, all of them mature and civilized. Maybe this comment ought to be a post. Too many guys posting anyway. They really are in greater numbers but often with less to say or just stuff to link. Anyway, I know it's tougher for females. Is it really THAT TOUGH though?

Silver1wun comments on Jun 1, 2018:
The most important one to 'forgive' is yourself for either having misjudged the other or for really knowing on a deeper level and not allowing yourself to confront it out of some illusion of probable loss by doing so. Trust is only half trust as it applies to the other. The other half is self-trust in your own perceptions and judgments. Only we can be responsible for that half. It is 'we' that will be with us for the rest of life and therefore more important to make peace at home and learn from it. The other is irrelevant after separation.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 1, 2018:
Only this week they confiscated boats and returned Gazans trying to run the Israeli blockade on the largest open-air (read concentration camp) prison in the world. My country makes this and a host of other crimes against humanity possible by supporting Israel's crimes against humanity and calling it 'defense' at the rate of over $10 million a day and rising. Israel isn't the only terrorist state or group. It is just the only one that depends on our support to carry them out. I'm NOT a Leftist. One doesn't have to be a political Leftist or Rightist to have compassion and to believe what your lyin' eyes are telling you. The historic proverb Israel exemplifies with citing the holocaust for self-licensing of atrocities: "Choose your enemies carefully, for you will become like them." Israel's Energy Minister, just yesterday advocated a final solution for the inconvenient people of Gaza. “I do not rule out the possibility of conquering Gaza and destroying it once and for all.” -Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz Political Zionists are preparing for their own style of 'final solution', it seems.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 1, 2018:
One of the things I've learned about people, women in particular, is that the greater part of beauty cannot be perceived by the eyes alone. A few years ago I was a bit startled when happening upon a quotation that resonated in a similar way. Learning from whom it came was startling and gave me a bit of a spine chill. "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart." - Helen Keller I knew of her from having seen the movie portrayal of her childhood. After learning more about her since, the idea of spending an afternoon comparing philosophical notes would be an adventure of a lifetime.

Love,.love, love Stanford Campus. Such a stimulating, beautiful environment. The Hoover Institution is there and Condoleeza Rice was, possibly still is, connected with it. Most thinking people ride the political pendulum over their adult lives to the confusion and exasperation of friends, family and sometimes even themselves. Losing and continuing to ward-off political group identity makes things so much easier. Maybe it will happen with John too. Over time it can be learned that we don't have to 'be' an anything on any side.
Sometimes it matters where and how you stand more than you k.
Silver1wun comments on May 31, 2018:

Casual relationship
Silver1wun comments on May 31, 2018:
Monogamous to whom? Casual to me means social, sharing of interests and activities and no obligations beyond honoring plans to get together. It also means either I or any of those causal female friends might or might not have a closer, non-casual relationship with another person that includes exclusive sexual intimacy. The question is what would I call it? I'd call it premature. I call it mutual short-selling. The attitude isn't rooted in prudishness at all. Many jump to that conclusion. Casual sex can be a great experience compared to no sex. The same can be said for other kinds of exhilarating experiences providing a secondary short-cut to a 'settled for' substitute. Artifice always delays or prevents progress toward what is genuine. All, admittedly, are not addictive types. For those who are, the roots of addiction are to be found in substitutes. One never gets enough of a substitute emptiness gradually grows. So little of what's authentic is required to satiate; causing fulfillment and relaxation.
What do you do before a date ?
Silver1wun comments on May 31, 2018:
Try to put a slightly better than average foot forward, if it is the first date. A 'best foot' for anyone might make a best impression, but will be temporary unless one actually lives it 24/7/365. It's mildly disingenuous to lead off that way. I try not to over-dress, depending of course on the destination. On a first date it is good to get most of the fundamental, possibly problematic things swept out of the way. I disclose them sooner and save wasting time and hurting of feelings later. Being atheist is a big one for many, so spill it ASAP. If, like me, there are other things one knows to be peculiar to others, there's no better time than a first meeting. Second dates will be a lot fewer but will contain much higher enjoyment and exciting possibilities.
I've been a band mom for 6 years and with 2 kids have gone to a LOT of concerts and I will never ...
Silver1wun comments on May 31, 2018:
Never been a band parent but am strongly in favor of music education; especially encouraging them to compose and seek new genres. This 'Rock and Roll' thing is really getting borrrrring. Between 1900 and a950 American music took the world by storm and not in just one genre. We went into Ragtime to Jazz to Tin Pan Alley popular music also *called Jazz* to Blues including distinctive sounding 1920's-30's bands playing all of it, to Swing and the later, more homogenized Big Band styles of the 1940's. Rock and Roll emerged in the early 50's and held for a couple of decades with some really creative times until... electronics and computers began replacing people, gradually to the point where people have largely become a minority in their own 'native' form of expression. They still call much of it Rock and Roll or some form of 'rock'. Really, it's been 68 years and the few bands comprised entirely of humans making the sounds are usually young men dressed as alien as possible, jumping around strumming the ever present three or more guitars, screaming and whining into mics, with some guy banging drums, rolling his head and shaking his hair like a lunatic. Grand Funk Railroad et al were doing this stuff, only better, in the 70's. Maybe they don't get emotionally involved in their kids' music because music itself has lost so much human emotion in the real adult world; so much alive, human resonance to the water torture perfect percussion of sound beds and synthesized tones phrased redundantly within the dead tempo? At least the 'jock' parents know that the impossible odds their kids must compete against in gaining fame will allow them to show talents personally without interference by or subjection to machines. Who knows? The future of real music NEEDS some talented, visioned young artists. Maybe people are getting so subconsciously weary of the emotionless drone of electronics that they are hungry for it and will migrate toward it. By playing old recordings of young people in the past making real music, some truly interesting responses and comments happen. Very young people come up and ask if I played it, complement it, (as though I'm the musician or something) and say they really like how it sounds. People all around will unconsciously and involuntarily move to it and 'catch themselves', laugh and start moving more. NO KIDDING. Many places have these Internet connected players that allow searches. Try it yourselves. BRING THE BAND KIDS. Long past time for me to shut up this rant. Here's only one early swing sample by a strict tempo British Orchestra. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ooi38_R6IGc

Silver1wun comments on May 30, 2018:
Early eighties I worked as a rape crisis counselor volunteer for about a year or so. About ten/twelve years later, a young woman approached me in a pharmacy and asked "You probably don't remember me. You're Robert?" Answered yes, still trying to make a mental connection. At that point she told me her name and reminded me of the connection, thanking me in possibly the most warm, touching way I've ever experienced. We hugged for a moment and she was on her way. Small things. Short cherished moments.

Silver1wun comments on May 30, 2018:
Nature makes us whole within ourselves and eligible to create relationships that function on the basis of sharing of 'wholes' to become a greater holon. As the saying goes: 'The whole is always greater than the sum of its parts'. It is an intrinsic bonding likewise formed from respective 'withins'. It is total surrender of body and mind to the greater wholeness. Turning it into a trade relationship, as in a business deal or typical marriage, is the antithesis; toxic at best and lethal at worst. Trading and promises make of it by definition a non-trusting phenomenon wherein sharing is lost and replaced by 'give and take', the balance of which has a short shelf life; ultimately leading to stasis. This is not to say many trading or business deal type of relationships aren't strong, conditionally rewarding or long lasting. Nor does it mean that love, respect and trust are entirely absent. It is, at root, still adversarial cooperative, as in 'trust but verify'. The difference between the two fundamentally different phenomena remind me of an old Swedish saying relating not to different relationship DNA's but still expresses the quality of difference on the bottom line. "Shared sorrow is half sorrow. Shared joy is double joy."

Physically he might qualify as a man but behaviorally he's more like an adolescent. All too many males arrest at that level. It is just another sad example of how the pathogenic process called 'civilizing', overseen by religious and idealistic organizations and the sick men who lead them, is a profoundly damaging process. Some of us can escape and repair and some not. Of the many destructive anti-life behaviors males exhibit, at least this one doesn't claim random strangers' lives.

Silver1wun comments on May 28, 2018:
For the world to have 85% of my sex vanish from the face of Planet Earth; starting with political and religious leaders and teachers, followed by those most susceptible to acting out violently when confronted with facts. If 85% cuts deeply enough to include me, SO BE IT! Surviving males would also benefit from a more natural status, doing what we are better equipped for than leadership. That being peer status as breeders, protectors and secondary providers. The ratio would assure majority female leadership and a higher value placed on men for awhile; long enough to prevent any future notions about male supremacy. One wish. o.k. maybe only 80% :)

Silver1wun comments on May 28, 2018:
Nothing special here, particularly 'en mass'. Many groups and even more individuals shelter themselves within the bounds of fantasy to avoid aspects of objective fact/reality for which they aren't emotionally equipped. Such is the damage that afflicts us all, as members in good standing of 'right thinking and moral living'. Most damage is correctable and we're equipped with the cognitive tools for making repairs. Good 'theraputic' practitioners with effective modalities put us in touch with those tools. In the probably distant future, with growing understanding of the functional unity of body and mind, modalities will also unite and greatly expand efficacy. Until that time, we must be our own judges, or shoppers and carefully, oh so carefully and courageously, fill-in the gaps.

Feelings of contentment are indicative of over-all homeostatic balance. That is as good as it gets.
What will you do if Trump gets re-elected for a second term?
Silver1wun comments on May 28, 2018:
Based on his administration's economic improvements, November should be a bloodbath. In some parts of the country, primary registrations are showing significant shifts in party affiliations to Republican. I'm independent, but it makes a great 'stereo' perspective. Six years is way too far to predict and lots of time for opposition desperation to manifest in some very destructive ways if his domestic policies continue to improve conditions. I despise his Middle East policies and even though ambivalent at times about his foreign policies 'trans-Pacific', they are bearing some extraordinary fruit; previous administrations didn't even come close. As Trump often says, 'we'll see'.

Will Democracy correct itself in the United States?
Silver1wun comments on May 23, 2018:
This is not a Democracy and the designers of our political system took special care to prevent it becoming a Democracy. It has decayed as a Republic because they were not quited thorough enough. One safeguard that has backfired and made our system more Democratic; thus more toward organized mob rule was amending the Constitution to allow Senators to be elected at large instead of being chosen by their respective state legislatures. Now Senators have to join the lying contest and compromise themselves to financial interests like the whoring people's 'representatives' in the House. What's the point? Now the Democrat rabble want to do away with another protection called the Electoral College. It was well known by all educated people at the time of this nation's birth, that Democracies were doomed to fail. Today, the undereducated, indoctrinated fools turned out by our alleged system of public education worship the ideas of both Democracy and Collectivism; neither of which work or support a thriving economy or personal liberties. Yes, we're doomed. Only a matter of time.

Silver1wun comments on May 23, 2018:
The world and more ironically, the Arab world sit on their hands while the most powerful military in the region periodically bombards unarmed men, women and children in one of the most densely populated areas in the world. Gaza is the largest open air prison/ghetto in the world. It has no army, no tanks, no warplanes, no warships, no attack helicopters, no guided missiles, and most importantly nowhere to run when the occupiers of their country decide to attack them with the most sophisticated conventional weaponry known to humankind. There has been no proof, beyond the incessant Western media barrage of accusations and pronouncement of his guild sans evidence, that Assad has used or even still possesses chemical weapons. Oh, but don't dare question the veracity of the wholly owned and manipulated western press. The very (last two) times Assad was pronounced guilty of gassing his own people were exactly when he was at a superior strategic advantage in Syria's civil war/insurgency; making him the last party to possibly benefit from bringing reproach and condemnation upon himself from the rest of the world. Last time was within a week of when President Trump announced withdrawal of US presence in Syria.
So sad that so many people in our country are so gullible to believe the conservative bullshit
Silver1wun comments on May 22, 2018:
There's plenty of bullshit to go around on both lunatic fringes. In this example one sees how others do not see. To some, hard work is hard toil; something which makes us less for having done it and an exchange for something of material value as consolation for the toil. Hard work means so much more. In fact, it would be better described as 'smart work', the kind that is not only more productive and higher earning, but which is a pleasure edifying one for having gone through the process of execution. It doesn't create a feeling of fatigue, but of restfulness during which one re-charges and tentions toward the next discharge.

Silver1wun comments on May 22, 2018:
I'm not put-off by people forming families of various structures freely and based on shared love and respect for one another. The hitch for me is that of the male automatically being considered 'head' of the family and/or imposing his will on it as though he has extra entitlement. Polygamy, for example, as we know it is always a family headed by a male who 'possesses' numbers of wives and who determines how the family and household will function. This is already ass-backwards in conventional, monogamous families. So then it is expanded and repeated when female members are added? How and why? It seems far more natural for a family to have a female or females directing the family and a male (if polygamus) or more males (in the case of polyandry) subordinate to family and wives needs. The creep in the picture ads nothing but infamy to family structuring that transcends the pathogenic paradigm by which societies comprise themselves.
Why, at 52 years old, I feel like I've never been truly loved?
Silver1wun comments on May 22, 2018:
Because by the age of 52 you probably haven't been truly loved by you? In my view, that's where it begins and so many of us are crippled in that ability so early in life that we don't even understand what a vital role it plays in attracting love from others.

Sexual identities and labeling others. I think that it is very important to learn to value others...
Silver1wun comments on May 22, 2018:
I love all people until or unless they ACT individually or en mass of a single mind, in ways that interfere with my automatic respect. Then I'll criticize and as they are entitled to their feelings, opinions, delusions etc. I am no less entitled to mine, whether personally reasoned or, though I shun it, borrowed from others as in group-think. Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual people are among the many categories of people I personally love, respect and trust - some of them - faithfully with my life if circumstances called for it. That said, I'm not comfortable with the huge umbrella under which people claiming to be 'Transgender' gather and demand often unearned or undeserved respect. If a person 'identifies' with the opposite sex (not to be confused with crazy mixed up gender roles in other than sexual aspects of life) and because of present day medical technology, choses to undergo a change of landscape and artificial absorption of hormonal/chemical substances enabling functional life as the opposite sex, I'M ALL FOR IT. It harms nobody and does nothing to threaten or upset the balance of society in the interests of the overwhelming number of it's inhabitants who are* relatively comfortable* with the way it functions. If, however, a person wishes NOT to invest themselves in an actual, albeit limited, functional change enabling life as a member of the opposite sex, I don't agree that the overwhelming majority of others should have to accommodate or inconvenience themselves over that person's personal 'identity'. After all, if that person isn't ready to commit seriously to accomplish the change in physical terms, how is it that the public is obliged to commit serously or even take seriously their claim? A lunatic who believes him/herself to be Napoleon or Anastasia or Teddy Roosevelt *might expect* their 'identity' to be respected and demand behavior toward them to be modified to suit it. They are entitled to expect anything they want. That doesn't mean society should acquiesce or make rules or laws to accommodate them. There is no such thing as a male who knows what growing up female is like, early identity notwithstanding. A woman is the culmination of that experience. The same applies to the male half of our kind. Nature sets the biological 'rules of the game'; the inviolable canon within which we, like all other creatures, live. A limited, functional alteration of a person physiologically doesn't qualify them in full *as a definitive, non-limited* member of an opposite sex. Therefore any laws made to facilitate and protect rights to function as such should also be limited relative only to functional, *not definitive* legitimacy. Fairness and respect cut both ways. Women, in particular are the more functionally superior sex in...
Asexuality
Silver1wun comments on May 22, 2018:
Men who are 'interested in sex' can still be (though admittedly rare) good friends with whom good times can be arranged and shared. I'm one of them. Many of my female friends are or have been people who happen to share a common interest or work. Much of my earlier work life was as a professional model and being the 'minority' in the field as a male meant being surrounded not just by women, but women who were very pleasing to the eye. I regarded some as friends and other women not related to work likewise as friends, with sexuality, other than unavoidable surface attraction, completely out of the mix. I was married during those times and many of them were as well. Today, even on this site, my interest in women is based on preference for their company or interaction as primary motivation and sex has no part of expectations as far as meeting people. IF, because I'm interested in sex also and conditionally, I meet someone with the intellectual and character elements that makes the stuff or which real 'sex' is made, that would be great too, but FAR from prerequisite. Not sure how many other guys here are about that but I can't be alone, can I? If you or any female has a resonating 'bio' in the profile that stimulates interest in direct communication expectation of a sexual relationship would be the extreme of 'cart before the horse'. .... a little horse and buggy lingo. :)
What was the best memory you had from your childhood?
Silver1wun comments on May 22, 2018:
A girl named Judy sitting across the aisle at her desk would look over and smile at me. She was beautiful beyond words, with a couple of teeth missing. When she smiled my tummy tickled inside. When that happened I couldn't contain my smile and had to look away. Travel adventures like driving to California; taking the street we lived on in Chicago all the way there. It was Ogden Avenue (Route 66), riding in the back seat of the '47 Olds. Not enough memories from that trip, but two stand out. Seeing 'Indians' in New Mexico, wrapped in heavy blankets, some wearing hats was disappointing. I expected them to be scantilly clad, with bows and arrows, on horses like the ones in the movies. Loved the way the roadsides glittered and flashed in the sun as we sped by. It was before the 'litter bug' program got started. People on the way to California just discarded trash out of car windows without even thinking about it. Train back a year later was a nice new smelling 'El Capitan'; a Santa Fe train we took back to Chicago. One could see the beautiful passing landscape from the top of the 'dome car. More of the litter culture that was fun was the restroom. When you 'flushed' a small round door opened at the bottom of the toilet and water washed contents out under the train and onto the track below. Kinda made it more fun than a boring vortex. :) Oh, almost forgot a much earlier and vividly remembered thrill. Probably because my parents were gushing over the whole thing and so excited that it has stayed so long. We were at Midway Airport in Chicago on a typically cold, snowy day when I was very small watching some men with hats and overcoats walking down stairs from an airplane and toward us. Oh they were so excited! "Bobby! Here comes President Truman! Wave!" Dad held me up for a bit and I remember the President's grin and his reflecting wire glasses as he looked over and waved back. I didn't know what a president was, but learned that they caused a whole lot of fuss.
Funeral Rites
Silver1wun comments on May 22, 2018:
I want to be cremated. My ashes should be gathered carefully and sent with a special death-wish request to Sophia Lauren, that she take them for spreading to a remote area or sea coast in Italy to be disposed of. If she showed compassion for an old man with a life-long crush, I'd have the greatest of all achievements to brag about in the hereafter. "I got my ashes hauled by Sophia Lauren!" Why should Carlo get all the envy?

Silver1wun comments on May 22, 2018:
Some folks just go around with a chip on their shoulder about race. People, just about all people, are more comfortable around the 'familiar'. That includes but is not limited to race. Venturing into the unknown is adventurous and exciting to many; especially in youth. One cannot separate perfectly human propensities to remain where things and people are familiar. It is called 'clanishness' and has NOTHING to do with racism. Some are more clannish than others. For those who are not, cross-culturalism benefits and we all ultimately benefit. It isn't mean, hateful or racist to be comfortable among one's 'own kind'. Though often disclosing a lack of curiosity or adventurousness, it is definitely NOT racism. Get over it.
Does this mean there's something wrong with me?
Silver1wun comments on May 22, 2018:
It is normal for you and that is all that matters. I felt similarly about the passing of both my parents and would wish for my kids to feel the same about me. "Dad was suffering, (sometimes for a long time), he's free now and even though he could be a pain in the ass sometimes we loved him and it is good for him and us that he has gone on. Nothing wrong with that in my book. It is NOT wishing one's parents dead. It is pragmatic and compassionate.

How many of you atheist are pro-life? Just curious
Silver1wun comments on May 21, 2018:
'Pro-life' and 'Pro-choice' are unnecessarily limiting and disingenuous labels for this stupid, merry-go-round topic. An atheist should really be beyond subscribing to the juvenile simplicity of it.
Why do intelligent people suddenly turn to a god in there darkest hours
Silver1wun comments on May 21, 2018:
Go along with it. Being humane sometimes calls for humoring. It doesn't matter at this point for them. Earlier perhaps, but not now. It is like a controlling spouse condemning a well meaning family member who smuggles in a drink or a cigarette to a dying loved one. Who the Hell cares at this point?
