Widower, mature student of Social Sciences, father, hero and a damn good egg!
Vehement non-smoker and atheist - well the later bit is why I'm here!
Right now I'm trying to put life back together after the death of my wife, she died back in 2015. My first step was to try a follow in our daughters footsteps and gain an education, or else I'll end up doing zero hour contracts for minimum wage. So, trying for a degree. If romance blossoms through meeting someone, then all well and good, if not then I want some good conversations without phrases about it being 'Gods plan' thrown at me.

Sofabeast comments on Jun 24, 2019:
Twas the early and very hot summer of 1976 and our Religious Education (R.E.) tutor had gone away to bother Indians with Christianity. So the school's deputy head stepped into the post. After 35 minutes of explanation and questions a class of 32 young men had produced 30 atheists. I still don't know why boys and girls were separated for RE. My mother didn't like the idea of blasphemy being taught to children, but there you are. She enlightened me that I was like her dad, an unbeliever. To be fair, I doubted that there really was a god or gods before 1976. Why would a loving god allow so much evil. Why just one son, one location, and after Jesus had risen from the dead, why didn't he show himself off? Why are we not all Jews?

School Board Jesus Prayer
Sofabeast comments on Jun 18, 2019:
Should the $ have 'In Gold We Trust' instead of God. After all, with a promise of religious freedom in the USA, then the inclusion of multiple Gods and none at all should be included. So, if schools take prayer, then they must allow for all belief systems.

Are you tired of speculation in new stories?
Sofabeast comments on Jun 13, 2019:
In the UK you can replace Trump for Brexit. Overall, anxiety leans towards people becoming exhausted with the problem. With Trump, he continues to make mistakes that cannot be accepted by a world leader, yet he brushes them off with a simple statement 'Fake News'. He refuses to face or at appears not to understand the facts. He recently denied making statements about Meghan Markel, the Mayor of London and Micheal Gove. Gove could be the next British Prime Minister! Somehow he has weathered being a very poor businessman and is applying the same methods of failure to your country. To address the speculation in the news. Western news media is more to do with entertainment than facts, and like in a movie, situations need to be settled in 120 minutes or so. The true fallout of Trump (or Brexit) will not be known for at least a decade. This is because they are unknown quantities. Even George W. Bush followed the rules and conventions of a POTUS. Did you know that the present that H.M. Queen Lizzie was a book? Next time they meet, she should quiz him on the contents.

Sofabeast comments on Jun 11, 2019:
My condolences on your loss. Yes, there is a conflict of gods plan vs reality. If god has a plan for everyone, then every horror of life is part its plan. That must therefore mean god did it deliberately. My maternal grandfather lost his Christianity in Italy. He'd been questioning it for some time, but when his artillery battery flattened an Italian town killing hundreds of civilians after the Germans had left, then that confirmed there couldn't be a god in the first place. No loving god could ever have good reason for that horror. In the end, gods plan is just a cop out for the truth of 'shit happens'. My late wife used to save lives and make people happy, she was one of the most intelligent people ever to walk the earth and we loved each other deeply, so why did god decide to put us together, take the lives of three of our unborn children and finally her. Well, there was no god and these things happen. Not nice, but true. Most people like to think there must be something more and blame everything on gods. Gods gave us an evolutionary edge, pulling small societies together and providing control to the powerful whilst providing answers to the impossible. Christians cannot have both ways, if it isn't gods plan, then surely there cannot be a god then. If it is gods plan, then every rape, murder, torture, illness is its fault. Therefore, we don't need prisons etc as everything must be gods will. Even the devil must be gods will.
Well, yeah!

My question is, who would make their best leader after May's replacement? BoJo has promised to cut taxes of those who most afford to pay it, perhaps in some attempt to generate an American style of taxation after he has sold the UK to Trump. Gove just hasn't got the right stuff. Hunt is well... Savid Javid, the angry egg comes across to me as the 'Evil Man' from Thunderbirds. Ester Mcvey like Gove and many others just hasn't got the leadership about them. Dominic Raaaaaab really isn't as bright as he thinks he is. The world is far more complex than he understands. As a final act for Theresa May, she should have the Royal Engineers take Farage out to a big field and carry out a controlled explosion of him for public safety.

Do you think we will get in the similar era if Trump gets re-elected in 2020?
Sofabeast comments on Jun 5, 2019:
I saw some of the coverage of the D-Day commemorative services on the BBC today, and thought that the far right supporters should either be staying away from it or bemoaning the defeat of their beloved Nazism, but more likely they will be celebrating the people who stormed Festung Europe in twisted irony. Having been studying the rise of fascism at college this year, I see the deep similarities with the Alt-Rights popularity in the Western World. For myself, I guess I'll have to start looking for a nice wall to be put against come the revolution.

10 things people constantly get wrong about PTSD
Sofabeast comments on Jun 3, 2019:
At some point, all people who make to adulthood will encounter it. Some of us can suffer chronic PTSD. It's no fun. I'm on Prosac, which controls it nicely. In the UK, it a condition is generally only considered to be military based, but we all suffer from it. I was a long term carer for my late wife, loosing her caused it with me. Most people will get it from sudden stressful acts such as being in a violent storm, act or accident. Very few will have the Chronic version for more than a few years.

Why do many conservatives vote against their own best interest and that of society?
Sofabeast comments on May 20, 2019:
The 'strict father' in Conservatism, is part of conformity. It provides a stable authoritarian system of leadership which of course must not be questioned, and if it is, the 'stupid child' must be chastised and punished. In basic life, we avoid pain thus, punishments work. However, life is far more complex. We fight pain, we question why and do things differently from each other. This produces conflict. We also see that the strict father is often wrong and at least as dumb as the rest of us! I suggest reading Thomas Hobbes and John Locke then compare & contrast them. Hobbes uses the strict father model and Locke was the basis for the US Constitution. There is a vast amount of information and contemplation to be done via Politics, Religious, Psychological, Historical and Sociological studies to come close to answering this question. So ask me again in twelve months, and I may have the answer.

Sofabeast comments on May 17, 2019:
Now if we can just get a change of Labour and Liberal leaderships quick.... Politics is part of my studies. So two years ago the SQA set up this years questions for assessments and exams. Little did they conceive that by the time the UK was meant to leave the EU we still wouldn't know what Brexshit is yet! The Tory party now has to cut the tumour of Theresa May out. Her total failure at the task has made the UK a world-wide laughing stock. She took the choice to exclude the other parties in politics, she should have involved all of parliament from the start prior to triggering article 50. Then she must have discovered what Brexshit was going to be offered, and then ask the people do they want a deal or ruin the country with WTO rules. Then carry it out. Now who will lead the country? Boris isn't smart enough. Gove - well he's Gove. JRMogg is still living in 1933. Fox - just don't go there. Jeremy Hunt, is a cunt, nasty piece of work. Whomever they choose, the choice will be a terrible one.
Lethal Injections: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO) Published on May 5, 2019 [youtu.be]
Sofabeast comments on May 14, 2019:
In Europe we don't have the death penalty as such. Under Scots law, the death penalty means life without parole. This sentence can be reversed should the accused be later found to be innocent. This as Oliver showed, cannot happen with the death of a person who is not guilty. It appears to me, that there are too many loopholes in State Laws for the death penalty to be administered in 'civilised' country. What are the reasons for the State/Nation State to take a persons life? What proof is needed and how is scrutinised? To add a question. Is the death penalty needed? If it is, then what method of extinction should be used? The United Kingdom last carried out a 'public execution' in 1962. Evidence does not support the notion that the death penalty deters crime, although those that are killed cannot continue to offend again of course!

Sofabeast comments on Apr 26, 2019:
I met Alec Salmond in the CO OP last night stocking up with cakes... anyway. As for wee Nicki - Referendums are a reserved matter for Westminster. What is missing in the Nationalist argument are social effects of separation from a union that began to happen when King James VI of Scotland became King James I of Britain, then the act of Union 1707. The FUBAR of trying to separate from the EU has in three years shown how just four decades of union is proving painful. Thus attempting to disengage over four centuries of integration is going to be far harder. History has shown in recent years the nationalistic conflicts that have arisen in places like the Balkans and ex-Soviet Union are a potential outcome. Recent polls indicate a lack of appetite for more political conflicts. But the SNP cannot leave it alone. There may well be a fear in Nationalists that if they don't win a referendum soon, they could suddenly sink back to last century levels support wise. With the current Conservative government, there is a real potential for them to overturn the Sewell convention permanently as they have done with the EU withdrawl bill. Theresa May is psychologically unable to 'listen' to the opinions of others and her probable replacements don't seem to understand 'England' doesn't have an Empire anymore. As for myself, I would fully support a Federal Scotland (and Northern Ireland, Wales, England and London), but not Scotland as an independent nation state.

We were being kitting out as a Highland regiment marching back from the Battle of Waterloo. The wardrobe guy busied himself putting the kilt of the Clan MacCarugg on me when I adjusted it to the correct length, he pulled it back down past my knees in a very Ms Maple fashion, to which I enlightened him as to 'Kings Regulations' and argument broke out. It was at this point I saw red, and thought better walk away and adjust later. When it comes to military stuff, I know my stuff.

Sofabeast comments on Apr 19, 2019:
It would be logical for a God to keep up proper communication with its subjects. Updating them in an identical manner on a regular basis. It would also be quite illogical for a God to start with a single interaction by say making a woman pregnant and wait for that person to grow up in a single location and spread the word to all of humanity at walking pace. Why not impregnate a few thousand and spread the good news all over the world, or just have us all have an inbuilt knowledge of God and the rules of how to worship it. Once you take apart religions, they don't stand up to scrutiny very well.

With every case of autism being individual, the research will produce anomalies and ethical questions. Who would get the treatment? I find the research interesting.

Sofabeast comments on Apr 8, 2019:
Freedom comes with duties and responsibilities to others and not just the fulfillment of personal desires. Laws give us freedom (Locke, J. Social Compact) Being nude in public is not socially acceptable. The why, is the potential for the sexualisation of being nude. Paedophiles may well see children as sexual targets when outside in public. Misogynists leering at beautiful young ladies and so on. Ideally I'd like people to be able to wander around without clothes on if they wish, but quite frankly I don't want people to be uncomfortable should accidental inappropriate body contact happen on crowded public transport happens. As for symbols of religion, it is part of being a human being and shouldn't be infringed on, in the same way that should I decide to show my support for reason I could wear an atheist badge. Unless by donning said symbols it offends significantly or demands violence on others. An example symbol is the swastika. Although of course we are all nude under our clothes if that's any consolation.

I've seen a few questions from men asking women to tell them what is great sex to them.
Sofabeast comments on Apr 8, 2019:
Sex is very personal to the lovers. The interaction at the start of a relationship is one of great learning. Young lovers may not have the time or place for an all day session once the kids have gone to school and so must try great quickies where and when they can. More mature lovers can take their time and experiment. The key is communication and learning. Observe your lovers, try not to hurry. Take a break, kiss, touch, tickle, laugh and have fun. Tease one another. Tell your lover what you want and how to hold and caress you. Make adjustments for how you all may be feeling. I suggest enjoy making the other person orgasm and recover over attempting to coordinate orgasms. Afterwards, go and make them a snack and drink, give a moment for the post coital farting competition that never appears in movies or erotic literature, but we are all guilty of. Remember to cuddle.

Horribly I witnessed some 'innocent/ignorant' comments on a bus about a black man in Aberdeen this week. I don't think it was meant to hurt or offend, but the racism was there non the less.

Sofabeast comments on Apr 2, 2019:
I agree with you. We could really do with Brexshit put on hold for 12 months. Elect our MEPs then have a general election with Brexshit at its heart. Effectively a second referendum via the ballot box. Some MPs need to be excluded from standing ever again. Boris, Gove, May, Corbyn, and Reese-Mogg. Once we a have a new government, then they must act together and decide on what choices for Brexshit are available. This must include what the EU will accept too. Then the choices will be put to the people for a final say. As this campaign proceeds an objective body must check the facts being touted. If like last time there is a blatant lie splashed on a bus, then this must be made plain to the public and those who spout the untruths will be branded as liars to the people, and will be removed from further campaigning.

Islam is not a religion, rather a death cult for apostates.
Sofabeast comments on Apr 1, 2019:
Thank you for raising the issue. I strongly suspect that most of the members of this site come from some sort of Christian background and a lesser number from Judaism. - I'm being very general here with that statement. So to hear from a person who has come from Islam into reason, at least for me is very interesting. I tend to see more 'Christian bashing' going on not only here, but in at least British society. I have often wondered if that is due to fear of some kind of retribution. Still, one can look back to the Inquisition for comparison on intolerance. At college I know that one of my lecturers is an evangelical devout Christian, which surprises as they are leading our research classes. And we have the only Muslim in the college. The Muslim is willing to question their faith, and I suspect will loose it as the arguments for a god dissipate under scrutiny. They would also love to try alcohol - after all, Islam shares the same god as Judaism and Christianity and they both have wine in their ceremonies. So why would god deny Muslims?

I know the Trump won't stand for it, but the USA needs an American Court of Human Rights similar to the European Court of Human Rights. Now from a personal perspective, a few times my lovers have asked me to stop, and as a good guy and caring lover I did. Sometimes it happens for whatever reason that a woman says they want to stop, a man therefore should stop - end of. From my experience, it can be an excellent bonding activity. Something for NC male legislators need to think about is, if a guy looses his erection, he MUST make his lady orgasm, just to be equal. By the way, the link seems to be down
Even today people have a really hard time separating themselves from projecting their imagination ...

Sometimes dogs just do that.
Lol :-)

Very nice when fried up with a cooked breakfast the morning after
What do you say about near death experiences where the person claims they've seen heaven or hell?
Sofabeast comments on Mar 27, 2019:
My late wife had many near death experiences before her brain tumour finally won, and she said it was just pleasant and peaceful with memories of loved ones including her cats who had passed, but also some people who were still around. She/we believe it is just the delusions of a brain under those conditions.
The NRA comes out against the Violence Against Women Act
Sofabeast comments on Mar 27, 2019:
Ok, I see where the NRA are coming from. I don't agree with them. But what it is, is to do with the US Constitution and the philosophy of John Locke. By constricting the gun ownership of violent men will prevent those men from using their weapons to protect the liberty, property and laws of the people against tyranny and enemies foreign and domestic. A government who has nothing to fear from a peoples revolution, is at risk of corruption by a single tyrannical leader. Within this philosophy, a woman should protect herself by the use of firearms and the final sanction of death. Bloody John Locke and his second treatise on government! This argument works in the world of John Locke and latterly Thomas Paine and the American Revolution, but in the C21 no. We have seen in New Zealand recently and the USA the all to often mass shootings how modern firearms are a force multiplier. A pissed off maniac with a firelocke musket can pump out about two shots a minute, an assault rifle vomits out around seven rounds a second by comparison. Yes, useful when fighting a tyrannical government, but the evil that can be done when a stupid hate-monger lets loose on his previous co-workers or family. In conclusion, don't let fuckwits have guns.
I'm in the process of inviting a Mormon, Baptist, and Jahovahs Witness to my home and have them all ...
Sofabeast comments on Mar 27, 2019:
For the Jehovah, how many places in heaven are there, and how many left? Is there a quota? And what happens when it is full? Do souls get chucked out? For the Baptist, What happened to all of those souls that could never have heard the word of Jesus because of Geography, time or mental condition? If we are made in Gods image, are we the best he could do, only we don't last long and wear out quick. And the Mormon, Jo Smith, he was making it all up wasn't he. Got caught by the wife playing away from home - God said. Then those stones that only he could translate - err God did it. Give me your money - God says so!

Good, good... evil rubbing of hands
Damn Catholics.
Sofabeast comments on Mar 27, 2019:
My 'Jewish' grannie used to eat pork chops on Fridays so the catholics would have enough fish! She ate bacon a couple of times a week too, come to think of it. My granddad - her man was an Atheist in a foxhole.
Who needs Obamacare when there is Jesuscare? :)

Bloody 'ell watching the numbers go up! I signed last week.
I posted in January about a trip I had planned for August/September, mainly to Scotland and Ireland.
Sofabeast comments on Mar 27, 2019:
Shame you're not coming over to Edinburgh, I could have dropped down and taken out for an afternoon. Prices in Edinburgh that time of year are stupid anyway
Every so often, this particular topic comes up.
Sofabeast comments on Mar 27, 2019:
Well said, should there be otherwise a 'Catfish' option for those who just wish to play people? Post the image you are happy with. I'm a plump Englishman in a kilt in my photo. Usually I'm a stout Englishman in trousers. But I live in Scotland. I'd like to find love, and I think it would be unfair to show a photo of me when I was young and sexy, as I'm almost 57 and not sexy. I don't add 'Here for community' but that is what I do. No one has asked me for a date, and to be honest, I don't think that will ever happen.
Should something be done about this?
Sofabeast comments on Mar 27, 2019:
Some people are drivers of the economies, ideas and society. They should be rewarded for that, but there is a limit or else revolution at some point will break out. Perhaps in the Capitalist world the rich should be taxed upon assets, not income. Society becomes less happy when there is a huge disparity between haves and have nots. In the USA, wealth is worshiped above all else, but the masses are denied access to it by the rich, who then indoctrinate the masses into believing that taxation of their riches would be terrible, as socialism is theft of private property. There is a balance point, look at Japan for an example.
The subconscious.
Sofabeast comments on Mar 27, 2019:
Dreams, the Royal road to the subconscious. The fact is, we can only at this time have a subjective view of dreams, and there is no truly supportive evidence that there is any meaning to dreams. And therefore, are only the random firings of activity of the brain stem as it organises memories/images into linier data. Lincoln may have had many dreams of his death before, disappearing like 'tears in the rain'. The same for Helen Duncan. Likelihood is, she was awoken during a ship sinking dream and thus, remembered it more vividly.
I’m noticing a recent influx of followers of Jesus (Harold?
Sofabeast comments on Mar 26, 2019:
Send them to me, for I will feast upon them, and feed them reason.
Has anyone got any Historical or Cosplay events planned for spring/summer 2019?
Sofabeast comments on Mar 26, 2019:
I'm going to do my first Cosplay this year. Granite City Comic Con (Aberdeen Scotland). I'll be Bicycle Repair Man, from Monty Python. Historically - Waterloo in Belgium if I have time and money. Hopefully I'll still be a European too then!
