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.
Things about me.....

Part of my indoctrination as a believer was that humans have souls and other creatures do not.
Sofabeast comments on Apr 12, 2020:
Question what is a soul? I see it as the sum of who we are, whether a human, cat or frog. Does this continue after the physical has stopped? Frankly I don't know. Our brains are amazing bits of processing goo. Study animals, they have personalities, perhaps this is the soul. So far I have seen no evidence that anything goes on past death.
So, the UK government has twice been defeated in parliament. Next step?
Sofabeast comments on Sep 5, 2019:
Looking at the situation as it on Thursday morning - it may have changed now. The government has collapsed and must now govern under the will of parliament. This may make the Tories have to resign their position and let others take charge. No deal is being taken off the table. Since the EU have stopped negotiations, that makes no difference. The proroging of parliament may or may not be going ahead, but the peoples question must be debated in parliament first. The PM has asked for a general election. The Brexit party may make strong gains against Labour, putting the Tories back into power with a coalition. Problem with that is afterwards there could be an array of feckwits in parliament who have a single agenda and no skills. What then? Lots of tiny by-elections as they disappear after causing a bloody mess. What if Corbyn wins? Money makers leave.

Christian Nationalists Call For Secession, Formation Of White Ethnostate | Michael Stone
Sofabeast comments on Apr 29, 2020:
Sounds all very sensible and following the concepts of how the States were formed. Problem is, if Jesus were real, he would fail their ethnicity test - being a Jew. This causes a major problem that Jesus could have never been a Christian! Then which state? Would it be recognised as a sovereign state by the UN? Who would trade with it? Given a peaceful separation, but an ethno-state, the USA may well find itself having to isolate it. So could it survive? As a mind exercise it would be interesting at least for me to run through what would happen.

Take a read of Hegel, we like to create our own realities, which include giving ourselves a soul. I use the term soul to describe my inner self, but kinda disappears shortly after 'life extinct', as brain activity ceases. Think of it, brain starts at the base of the spine, goes up the backbone and gets crammed into a pressure vessel at the top. Very basically a tube of organic wires optimised for survival... We are just a big bony worm with arms and legs, we carry the story of our evolution within all of us.

Due to Trump, how do you think America is perceived?
Sofabeast comments on Jun 15, 2020:
There is an element of support for Trump in the UK through his 'now the grown-ups are in charge' approach. America first and authoritarian leadership, common sense, small government, personal freedom contradictions seem to pass over their heads. These are almost universally seem to be the same people who voted to leave the EU. Most people though see 'Merika' as being very stupid and racist. Trump's love of capitalism at the cost of the poor is perceived as evil. Why don't you have a National Health Service free at the point of need paid for by central taxation? Trump is also a joke, somewhat like the 'Ot-oh spaghetti-o' Homer Simpson where the Lenny says "shhh, he's about to do something stupid". Well, Trump never fails to disappoint. Then of course, what has happened to all of those 'grown-ups' - Fired! Out of some forty staff whom I work with, only one supports Trump, and she isn't that bright, like twelve cans short of a six pack dumb. As a social science student, he is the gift that keeps on giving. Hard to keep up with what ill conceived fuckwittery he'll come up with today and sometimes a matinee thrown in for free! I'll re-visit this later, when I have more time to comment properly.

Thus, with promises of victory, the mechanical chatter of machine guns cuts down the warriors of Islam time and time again.

Problem of following burning balls of gas thousands of light years away is they are pretty ambiguous about where they point. After all, the earth rotates and they don't sit geo-stationary. In fact, heavenly bodies that enter earths orbit, don't tend to do that either. I get the feeling they may have been told go and deliver these pressies to the new born King. So like Persian delivery drivers at Christmas, they decided, bollocks, this'll do, give this to him and let's go down the pub, shift done.

At what point does humanity consider itself mature? For now, I would go with the development of the scientific method, but perhaps in a thousand years time, that will be laughed at as being immature. Further to this, what is a god? Many cultures have 'man-gods' - the late Emperor of Japan, Hirohito was a god (got demoted in 1945). But then, that notion is quite different to the all powerful one true god concept. Then the pantheonists who have many differing levels of gods. Take a look into religions via Max Weber.

Nearly half of Americans believe the Bible should influence US laws - The Christian Post
Sofabeast comments on May 5, 2020:
Religions by their nature are all subjective. Even us thinkers are too. What if we are all wrong? That could be an interesting debate. Taking the USA as the main point. There is freedom of religion and the separation of religion and state. The political state is that of men (sorry ladies, not you originally, or Africans) and its success or failure is that of men. Important to this, is we are all under god and not equal to 'him'. Once people involve god in the running of state (think George III) then tyranny can result as anyone can claim 'god told me'. Given a Christian ideology, then what if it is the devil that has whispered in the ear of say Trump, who then said god put him here to lead you and the whole world... then all of the wobbly nonsense that follows with the likes of us ending up dead in pits. In the end, we all need to believe in something. We all worship our own gods, whether that be logic, scientific method, sports stars, celebrities, politicians, conspiring theories, gold, food mountains, invisible sky faeries or whatever.
I hate Daylight Savings time.
Sofabeast comments on Mar 10, 2019:
It is a stupid thing. Invented by a Liberal Member of Parliament (UK) to allow his son more daylight to get to school, and began implementation during the spring on 1918. If a different starting time is useful, then let it be the starting time of peoples work, not entire countries. In the USA the time changes on the 10th March, the UK changes a couple of weeks later. As a medical healthcare professional working with people with learning difficulties I can demonstrate an increase in incidents and problems during the clock times. My late wife saw similar in her profession as a Veterinary surgeon. So it's all bollocks and should be stopped!

Basic Income?
Sofabeast comments on Jul 12, 2019:
The first option would push the super wealthy away from the USA - this happened in the UK during the late 1960s. This removes wealth. Basic income - this may have to become universal paid for by taxation of automation, as automation takes jobs (not Mexicans) Better education, this hasn't really been tried in the USA yet. Currently only the minimum level has been provided. A study demonstrated this back in the 1970s by Samuel Bowels & Herbert Gintis which supported that education in the USA is aimed at production of workers through directed education to fulfill the needs of the employers not the people.

To play 'gods' advocate. My client states that the laws of physics are his laws, and obey him, not the other way around. He should like remind the court that if wants a tree, he will have a tree of whatever type and purpose and will place it where he desires. The bible was written by people, and hence, mistakes have been made. If the words of my client were heard by humans, they would explode. My client would also like to enlighten the court that he is a very busy deity and he has many billions of other worlds and lifeforms to interfere with all at the same time. Have you any idea of how many lives end every second? It's massive! And they all want to sit next to him and have a chat, meet Jesus, Mohummed and all the others. Then there's all of his judgments about not just peoples lives, but every tiny virus to the greatest blue whale as well. Being omnipotent and omnipresent isn't easy. Is the court aware of what it is like to exist throughout all of time and space simultaneously? Well of course not, he didn't make the courts brains able to do that! God states he isn't responsible for typographical errors like making everything in six days. Days didn't exist then! And as for resting, impossible, someone has to keep the lights on. Forgetting where he put an asteroid then skiving off for a day could wipe out almost all life on a planet! God should also like it entered into record, that he isn't a he, she or them, but just is, and is everything including what you puny minded humans call time and space. God closes with if god doesn't like it, god will wipe it out and start again.... again.

They will either be there as a display of 'Patriotic Power' showing that if Great Britain were ever to try and take back the colonies us Brits would have a fight on our hands, or to crush dissent in the American people - tanks have been used before in the USA for that.

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.

Thats a bummer. Happened to me many years ago. Lots of snogging and touching, then "You'll have to let Jezues into your heart"! Well, that relationship didn't last long. On the other side of the coin, I'm not likely to take to a god botherer either. At some point views on invisible friends crops up and bang! One person is packing their bags and much wailing and gnashing of teeth results. My late wife was an open minded pagan athiest, and knew that from the start.

Sofabeast comments on Dec 27, 2020:
Tell me more of this bible belt. In the UK we are pretty free of such things, even in the outer isles the 'wee free kirks' have lost control of Sunday opening and ferries on 'the lords day'. As several have said already, your life journey is just starting and you are capable of thought. I became an atheist at school just before my fourteenth birthday back in 1976! Religious education is pretty hit and miss in the UK. I don't know your friends, but open their minds little by little with questions. I'm sure there are many people here who would help you with that. Don't be shy, wade in and enjoy a life free from religion.

So, this has opened the way for the Queen to demand his resignation from Parliament. He has lied to the Crown and got caught by the highest court in the land. As a PM, he cannot and should not stand. At best, he must resign with immediate effect - no waiting to come home from New York. At worse, beheading in the Tower, although really he must serve a considerable prison sentence. So, what next? Parliament must form a government of unity in a national crisis and remain sitting until it is over. As for me... YAY! I'm getting to employ my degree studies in the real world!

Sofabeast comments on Jun 29, 2020:
Indeed, but there seems to an ever growing number of angry people who see themselves as the center of the universe with their own perceived rights and needs the pinnacle. As you have said, the people accept the rule the government they voted for, or accepting the view of the greater should their candidate have lost. All thanks to John Locke's social compact principle. Individuals or worse still groups who refuse to mask up and keep apart risk the whole. I will venture that Americans must learn a far more socialist method of living. Indeed you need to gain at least one more powerful political party/movement and move to proportional representation in politics which hopefully drive the needs of the many over that of the few.

Sofabeast comments on Jun 11, 2020:
In the literal sense, we cannot feel what it is like to be another biological sex. We can only know what it is like to be ourselves. However, as science investigates deeper into what makes us work, then the evidence strongly indicates that around one two thousand is born being not monosexual, but somewhere in between male (us mutants) and female the baseline sex. For us older people it can be difficult to understand, but I find at least in Scotland there is greater understanding. For myself, I've done my qualifications in sex and gender and I could write another paper on it. It has been an interesting journey to enlightenment, the new understanding showing how environment factors at, around and prior to conception influence gender development. Drink, drugs, starvation, vegan diet, violence, pollution genetics all impact the physical and neurological sex and gender development and stabilisation.

Sofabeast comments on Jul 26, 2022:
Sadly the American system of justice is weighted in favour of $, lots and lots of $$$$! In cases such as this, a fair trial is not likely. For this to proceed the defence and prosecution councils must be fairly appointed to uncover the truth and act for both sides as a whole. A third council of scrutiny must oversee the defence and prosecution so that the trial is unbiased and not won or lost by the skills of council or tricks of law. From here there would be no appeals, just the sentencing of the guilty or acquittal if innocent. His wealth should be divided among the victims and he must serve a public sentence for his crimes to shown penance until he grows to weak to do so. From there to a common federal prison until death, then cremation and destruction of his remains. Once incarcerated, the following POTUSs will be renumbered with Biden becoming 45. Of course as high treason, a public hanging should be on cards too.

My service user is quite clearly straight, but we educate him to accepting that love between consenting adults is normal regardless of gender/sex. The problem is a change in manager. She does not want any acceptance of non-heterosexuality in the workplace as this would be 'un-professional'. For myself, I love to see how society has changed over my lifetime. When I was born, homosexuality in England was punishable by incarceration in a place full of similar men...(WTF) Then, bit by bit it was no longer illegal to be gay, although to be a practicing homosexual was. Then the age of consent came in at 21, then dropped to 18 and finally in line with Scotland equalising with heterosexual consent at 16. Later still, same sex marriage.
What Do TV Pundits Mean When They Say Democrats Should Move to the Middle? WTF is the Middle?
Sofabeast comments on Mar 7, 2019:
The middle is nationally subjective. The Democrats in the USA are the political left. But in Europe they would the right, with the Republicans being extremists beyond right wing.
Things are getting weirder…Liz Truss wears almost identical dress to Emma Thompson’s fictional ...
Sofabeast comments on Oct 10, 2022:
Truss is as mad as a box of frogs on a hot plate! I still fancy her though.. hahaha.
Who needs Obamacare when there is Jesuscare? :)

Hmm, yes madam, you're going to die and go to heaven. Yay!
"Americana" paintings are a white supremacist's wet dream.
Sofabeast comments on Sep 8, 2020:
I covered white Americana in paintings a year ago as part of American history.
Jesus empowers this idiot to speak publicly.

"Would you grow your hair long for me?" a man, 79, asked today.
Sofabeast comments on Apr 15, 2022:
If you're interested, I've got very long hair.... however I will admit that perhaps we may be a little far apart for a relationship to work, or even start. As usual meant with humour.
Evangelical christians rationale for natural disasters...

It's all part of Gods plan

Let's face it, the Satanic Verses wasn't so much a crime against Islam as literature!

Ah the science of the bloody obvious!
What do you eat for a healthy dessert?

I miss church.
Sofabeast comments on Feb 24, 2020:
Is it viable to start a church of intelligent thought? Create a physical community of Atheism who gather together to praise logic, scientific methodology. Raise funds to help people etc. Just without the need to involve some strange invisible friend in the sky.
Opening America now is ludicrous.
Sofabeast comments on May 6, 2020:
This will not end well. I say that as a social scientist. It's my task during my studies to understand this. (It may mean I have to repeat all of part of this year's studies, we don't know yet). I see the need for Trump to get campaigning as trumping your nations safety. So.... DON'T BE A CHUMP VOTIN' FOR TRUMP, GIVE HIM A HIDIN' VOTE FOR BIDEN! America can have that for free from me.
Why men say they want "nothing" for Christmas.
Sofabeast comments on Nov 30, 2019:
I usually suggest porn, crisps (that's chips to you colonials) and beer. Sorted. The porn may give the wrong idea coming from you, probably best scrub that bit. A Darwin awards book. Us men love humorous death stories. That and the beer etc.
People treat me like a god....

I'm giving up online dating. Feels like I'm dealing with leftovers.
Sofabeast comments on Aug 25, 2021:
To be very direct. You are a very, very beautiful lady to look at. I have read many of your posts and I'm convinced you are very intelligent and caring too. However, to use myself (age 59) as an example, I find many ladies around my age look far older than me, and tend to have very set world views (they voted for Brexit) based on opinion, religion and not science. Some like myself have outlived their spouses, others are classic grannies who happen to like Queen. Thus, there are not many as well preserved and still fresh as yourself.
Tell me, what's your best argument against a Christian?
Sofabeast comments on Aug 3, 2019:
Ah, the one true God, which one? There are quite a few one true Gods at the moment!
I’ve posted about “Toxic masculinity”, and I’ve asked for your input about similar ...
Sofabeast comments on Jan 28, 2019:
I'll be in a better position to comment by the end of May. I'm carrying out scientific research on related matters. I cannot comment much more until I publish.
Anybody know how to let a “love bomber” down without incurring wrath?
Sofabeast comments on Nov 4, 2021:
As promised, a longer reply... Although not limited just to males, it is us males who are more often the victims of biological drives. That is to pass on our genetic code. We develop schema to generate the perceived greatest chance of finding a mate. There are of course many different strategies to this, which we tend to base on what we learn from around the age of two, but these are also biased to our genetic makeup. From a male perspective here are some schemas which are common. One woman for life. Many women for life. One woman for now. Many women for now. One woman for life and others for now and again. One woman for as long as she can make babies, then trade in for a new one. Short term love, then move on. Short term love, then move on, but keep coming back 'cos you'll always be mine, y'hear bitch! No, no I love you... Cuckoo - mate and be gone. African-American in the USA tend to strongly follow the cuckoo or many women for now which has become a multi-generational social norm. We men can change, but that depends on the woman we are with. We will always have sudden urges to smash in the skull of a rival or lock our love away.
