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.

Bernie is poised to win Super Tuesday and with that his nomination will be almost unstoppable.
Surfpirate comments on Feb 12, 2020:
Canada moves one step closer to bringing the USA back into the folds of the once British North America. We will lure them in with the promises of universal health care, gun control and the end to insane wars for profit, we Canadians are diabolical. ;) Truth be told, Bernie is so far to the right in Canadian politics that he would have a hard time getting elected up here. :D Socialist my ass.

What happened when you came out of the closet as an atheist?
Surfpirate comments on Feb 12, 2020:
Some people get freaked out by the term 'Atheist' so you may want to say that you have given the whole god/religion thing a lot of thought over the years and it just doesn't make sense to you personally. Personally, I just tell people that I am an Atheist because I grew up and left behind imaginary friends back when I was just a teenager. I am okay with them being juvenile and needing an imaginary crutch but only so long as they don't try to make we walk around with a crutch as well.

I couldn't read the article because of their adblocker requirements but I can imagine that most people have some sort of boogieman that they fear. Since many atheists were programmed at an early age to believe in a boogieman called Satan then it stands to reason that there could still be an irrational fear, much along the same lines as werewolves have for some people in spite of the fact that there is no evidence that werewolves exist.

Anyone else find that there are very few agnostics where you live?
Surfpirate comments on Feb 10, 2020:
I never use the term Agnostic to describe myself, Atheist or Anti-theist or both will work but why the hesitation? We all outgrew the Easter Bunny but we still eat chocolate from time to time, ditto with the angry, old man in the sky belief which is even more silly and childish. The difference is that there are a lot of people walking around that have not managed to outgrow the angry, old man in the sky belief. I'm in Canada so we tend to look at people who take that religion stuff too serious as somewhat demented, delusional or psychotic.

It would depend upon the available options but I tend to vote for the candidate that best represents my desire to build a better society for all citizens, Obviously a person with delusional beliefs and an overwhelming faith in any of the various death cults would be low on my list of choices. It is helpful that most of the candidates that have an open religious agenda are also hateful individuals that want to vilify the poor, the aged and the vulnerable in society, it definitely makes my choice easier at election time.

Surfpirate comments on Feb 6, 2020:
Are religions are essentially death cults, the fear of death is the premise for their existence and the underlying power of all religions. It stands to reason that atheists would be less fearful of death than those who are members of a death cult and all the dread that goes with it. If you have sinned you are going to eternal damnation and they all know that they have done their fair share of sinning, hence the anxiety. :)
Curse of the Hope Diamond is a legacy of the Supernatural that I have long heard of.
Surfpirate comments on Feb 6, 2020:
People who amass a great deal of wealth are obsessive people who are driven to do whatever is necessary to get that wealth, not well off or comfortable but rich enough that they would be able to buy something like that diamond as a symbol of their wealth and prestige. You make a lot of enemies when you are that sort of person and eventually your luck runs out. Giant diamonds and giant fortunes go hand in hand, misfortune is the inevitable result of the behavior necessary to amass giant fortunes.

Do you all think the coronavirus is such a threat to Canada that such measures must be taken?
Surfpirate comments on Jan 29, 2020:
It is too soon to tell just how high the kill rate is on this latest coronavirus but it certainly is more of a concern that the common cold and bears watching as well as taking basic precautions for now. Quebec has Napoleonic Civil Law but Criminal Law is nation wide, Immigration is a Federal Jurisdiction so it is just grandstanding for the racist element in Quebec. What would be nice is if our governments spent more time focusing on the health and welfare of Canadians and less time worrying about the economic impact of the Coronavirus which is what they all appear to being at the present time.

A bit like Daniel walking into the Lion's Den to draw a connection with the Bible Thumpers. lol I admire your courage and integrity for throwing out the possibility that sex isn't immoral at all but I am not surprised that they did not get it. I once hired a realtor to sell some of my properties, I was a custom homebuilder, who invited me to a 'Men's Business Breakfast'. It was in the basement of a local church which was a bit irksome but I went anyway, only to find out that it was a session for 'Promise Keepers' so I had been sandbagged. I stuck it out through the greasy breakfast, the even greasier speaker and the misogynistic blather that followed. I did some more research into my new realtor after that deception and found out that he had been keeping a mistress as his personal assistant for several years, beat his wife when she complained and was completely unscrupulous in his business dealings. I let the listings run out and never worked with him again.

If a person is willing to do the work on the research to discover that all religions are a sham, created by humans to control other humans, in these instances the person will not be religious at all. Most people are not willing to do that sort of work so it is just easier to believe whatever bullocks they are fed.

Not everyone understands the importance of archeology. :)
Surfpirate comments on Jan 9, 2020:
Gosh, where is the tongue in cheek emoji when you need it? There is definitely a segment of the population that doesn't appreciate what can be learned from archeology but there is also a fair bit of jiggery pokery that goes on with most digs as well. I had a girlfriend who studied archeology and there was a lot of jiggery pokery going on in the showers and tents for some of these isolated digs. Then there was the skull my excavator operator pulled up in the bucket as we dug a foundation for a seaside mansion, the hew and cry was horrific, the Royal Archeology Society was called in all work was halted, the neighbours where about to lose their ocean view did everything possible to shut down the construction project and the local native band held a news conference decrying the desecration of their band's graveyard. After almost a year of jiggery pokery, the project went ahead, the graves turned out to be the remains of slaves that had been dumped in the native garbage dump, the neighbours who never paid for the free view, lost it and the mansion was completed in good time except for the delay of the dig. The owner who was a QC, successfully sued the Archeology Society for unnecessary disruptions and delays, the police were called in several times on nuisance complaints, nothing of any consequence was learned, except that the lovely young archeologist got knocked up by the head of the dig, her husband divorced her and the head of the dig denied all knowledge.

Should creationism be taught in schools?
Surfpirate comments on Jan 8, 2020:
I remember learning in the first lessons of Microbiology 101 that scientists used to believe in something called Spontaneous Generation and this theory was overturned when science came to understand the existence of microorganisms. I found it instructional that we could give up old theories as new ones came about that provided a better understanding of our reality. Creationism is just a theory that was put forth by bronze age men to try and make sense of their reality. Holding Creationism up to inspection is a good idea but only if the science professor moves on and explains the modern theory of Darwinism.

Surfpirate comments on Jan 8, 2020:
I've found that most people who believe in an imaginary friend will just assume that you do too. The only time it comes up is when they say something religious based that is so hypocritical, ignorant and mind numbingly stupid that I feel the urge to comment, I try to bite my tongue for the most part because its just never worth it. Those times that I do say something serves to get the word out there to others that I am not 'one of god's children' and it keeps them away for the most part - I don't enjoy their company so it works for me. Being alone is much better than being surrounded by a bunch of ignorant hypocrites that make a person feel very lonely but not alone.

How do my fellow Atheists deal with depression?
Surfpirate comments on Dec 27, 2019:
Depends what the cause is of the depression, sometimes it is health related or seasonal or stress related. Meditation and laying out an action plan can help to overcome the stress related version, often we find we aren't as bad off as we imagine. A regular walk is helpful as exercise helps with depression. Sun tanning beds help in the winter as well as supplementing with Vitamin D and there are special lamps you can buy for S.A.D. type depression. One thing I do not do is pray to an imaginary friend in the sky who doesn't like masturbation or shrimp because that would really be depressing.
