Hello to my fellow atheists and free thinkers. I've been out of the atheist closet for a couple of decades now, having wasted several decades searching the various religious texts and sects trying to make sense of life. My outlook is science based with the provision that science is still in its infancy and there is so much more we have to learn, so I don't dismiss the unknown any more than I accept that there are things that are unknowable, we just haven't reached that level of understanding yet.

We've built a whole economy around make work projects that involve pain and suffering in order to maintain our lifestyle.

Reminds me a lot of the old Galloping Gourmet TV shows, Graham Kerr was the host and he always had a bottle of wine on the go as he was cooking, the problem was that they filmed 4 episodes at a time so by show #3 he had consumed 3 bottles of wine. Hilarious drunken cook teaching people how to cook, I learned the basics from him at the ripe old age of 13.

I never learned to play an instrument because I could always sing. I think the first song was when I was 3 and it was about an owl, my older sister used to take me around the neighbourhood to sing and the women would give me money which she would take from me as soon as we got home.

57 years old myself and retired 9 years ago in Canada after living abroad. Do you find that people look at you a little strange for retiring so young? Most people are struggling to retire well at 65 so I think they find it hard to understand how anyone could retire in their 40's the way you and I both did.

Surfpirate comments on Dec 12, 2018:
I recall crossing the Drake Passage on New Years Day, it was blowing hard and while sitting in the lounge on Deck 5 the whole ship shook violently and the heavy glass window beside me was suddenly completely engulfed by a large wave, it turned a green blue until the wave broke. There was a lot of barfing going on that day, over indulging and rough seas make for a bad combination, especially for people prone to sea sickness. My wife and I are comfortable at sea so we went up to the observation deck that is cantilevered over the edge of the hull, it was an amazing view.
So, my response to a stressful day seems unusual to me, but I'm not really sure what others do to ...

Surfpirate comments on Dec 10, 2018:
My opinion is that people can justify their position or shut the fuck up, this isn't kindergarten, there's no safe zone or time outs. These people need to get their shit together and provide a rational argument instead of being offended all the time.

Surfpirate comments on Dec 10, 2018:
It's hard to separate the wheat from the chaff when it comes to the Templars, very little remains of them and historical accounts are few because the pope and the king of France colluded to wipe them out because they were the original bankers among other things.

Men as a life support system for a penis is about the same as women as a rack to hang a set of tits off of and a few orifices to entertain oneself with. Funny reverse sexism that takes the PC bullshit out of the equation.

When I lived in South America a lot of Latinos swore by the Leche de Tigre as a cure for a hangover, it's leftover ceviche juice from the night before, very pungent stuff with lots of lime juice, jalapenos and little chunks of raw fish in it. I love ceviche but personally didn't find it helped much, Tylenol is better and doesn't make you want to puke your guts out.

Surfpirate comments on Dec 8, 2018:
A bit of the hair of the dog is proven to take the edge off a hangover and rehydrating also helps along with some spices to stimulate the circulation.

Surfpirate comments on Dec 5, 2018:
I like that Trudeau is also refusing to use Trump's term for the trade deal USMCA which puts the US first and Canada last. Trudeau has opted for the term CUSMA instead which puts Canada first. Maybe the big orange baby was just having a bit of a moment because he can't stand Trudeau. Nixon felt that way about Trudeau's father when he was PM of Canada and often called him a Son of a Bitch.

Are you prepared for Xmas?
Surfpirate comments on Dec 5, 2018:
I grew up as a Jehovah's Witness until I was 13 and deemed old enough to choose, you can see how that turned out. ;) Xmas always held a certain mystique to me because I never experienced it first hand until I was 18 by which point it seemed rather silly to me. All the little rituals that friends observed because they held personal significance going back to their childhood meant a big goose egg to me. I do like the winter solstice as a seasonal event but besides that it's a big zippo to me.
I'm clapping as fast as I can.

Surfpirate comments on Dec 5, 2018:
Since the possibility of Trump getting arrested fairly soon is reasonably high I would need a little more than the arrest happening on Dec 25th 2018 to accept JC as my personal savior and lord. If Jesus the Lion were to come back and personally arrest the Orange Baboon then that would certainly go a long way towards changing my mind on the topic of religion and even then not conclusively.
Someone had to go there. I might not be the best troll, but I like to think I hold my own.

I hate that shit as much as I hate dealing with pushy Hari Krishnas with their tambourines and the 'Hari Hari Hari' horseshit. Nobody bats an eye when the guys in the funny pants get fucked off but some idiot in a religious military outfit gets any dressing down and people lose their shit. Halloween on the other hand is full of all the things I like. (y) Maybe it's my JW upbringing? :D
