Has anyone else been asked, after commenting you're an agnostic to a Christian, what happened in ...
The-Krzyz comments on Nov 13, 2018:
Sure, I get that response, perhaps even more so because I self-describe as an atheist. Many believers I know might think they understand someone "turning their back" to their god, but just can't imagine, as in my case, simply outgrowing those ideas. Maybe that's the issue: They are convinced that their god is an objective reality, whereas I just see an idea, a metaphor, a character in a story. (OK: Full disclosure -- I DID start researching agnosticism/atheism after my hamster ran away ...)

The-Krzyz comments on Nov 13, 2018:
I can only imagine the depth of lonliness and alienation that produces a market for this. BUT, having worked with people who experience social anxiety and other potentially disabling emotional conditions, I’m not ready to mock a strategy that might ease their suffering. As Bradbury put it, for them, this might be their “medicine for melancholy.”

For some reason, I've recently had a hankering to re-read "Treasure Island" after many decades (OK: I binge-watched "Black Sails"). BTW, in the non-fiction category, his account of his travels in America, "The Amateur Emigrant," is interesting, and his little "Travels with a Donkey" is a lot of fun.

I love politics as only an anarchist could. I define politics as “the mechanics of power,” and think I’m pretty good at it, in the pursuit of my interests.

Is it right to feel paternal over a pet?
The-Krzyz comments on Nov 11, 2018:
I wouldn’t call it “paternal,” but I’ve always felt a sense of kinship with many of the animals I encounter. Some have been pets; others “ fellow travelers,” like the three semi-feral cats I inherited from my late sister; or the several raccoons and possums that share my property; and even the varied critters I cross paths with in the wild. Not that I sentimentalize nature, but maybe respond to an “animal-to-animal magnetism!”

Lordy, yes! My first post on this site questioned the value/validity of "spirituality." I got a few nods in agreement, but was thoroughly whacked by many, many members who got offended, defensive, some even a bit nasty about it. Now, I live life as a fugitive, always looking over my shoulder, haunted, hunted by minions of the New Age, threatening me with "energy," "higher power," and improbable yoga postures. It's kinda fun.

How do you celebrate holidays as Atheists?
The-Krzyz comments on Nov 10, 2018:
I create my own, odd-yet-fun hybrid of Winter Solstice/Christmas/Kwanzaa/New Year/Three King's Day. I think the coolest "Christmas" traditions were ripped off from older, traditional customs. So, I love my tree: six foot, fresh cut, and aromatic, with plenty of branches for everything from really old family ornaments to knick-knacks-turned-ornaments picked up on my travels, representing countries and cultures around the world. Lots of indoor decorations, too. I extend the traditional 12 days a bit, so put up the tree and start decorating on the Solstice. Tree is ready by Christmas Eve, just in time for feasting behavior (vegetarian by custom). Then, non-stop merriment of all kinds until January 6, when any gifts are given/exchanged, and I try to watch "Three Kings." After that, "the takedown." Tree is cut up and the trunk cured for a year, to be burned in the fireplace next year. It gets tweaked a bit every year, but I always enjoy it!
I know many atheists who are more Christian.

The-Krzyz comments on Nov 10, 2018:
This is kind of a dodge, and only works if they acknowledge that Jesus was a character created by the church. If you believe he was a real person, however, and that the so-called New Testament is a somewhat accurate telling of his story and ideas, then hell has to be laid at his doorstep. There is a vague concept of a hell-like place in Jewish tradition, but it doesn't carry the importance of hell in christianity. Jesus apparently developed the idea and used it to bully and terrify those who listened to him. If so, this was the work of an evil and twisted person, and it has caused untold misery over the centuries.

Now, it has been predictably turned into a rah-rah, militaristic celebration intended to cultivate another generation of sacrificial lambs with the support of the wider population. We used to celebrate the peace, now we celebrate the war.

Wonderful! As a kid, my mom baked a lot, but two breads stand out in my memory: banana bread with chopped walnuts; and challa, a type of braided egg bread that made it's appearance each year around the Spring Equinox. Best thing about the challa was ripping off pieces by hand while it was still hot, and melting butter on it before popping it into our mouths. She always had to bake two loaves, as the first one didn't last long!

Not sure I can get behind the "in this day and age" part. In most ways, we are not that different from our ancestors, except that we are less clever and less adaptable. Just because we have all these gadgets and toys doesn't mean we have really evolved much. Science -- REAL science -- is a shining exception, but it is still under attack by lesser and more fearful minds.

If the relationship means enough to you, of course you’ll consider intelligent compromise. Compromise doesn’t mean betraying your integrity or your core beliefs, but it can be a road to continued growth and learning. I don’t buy the ageist assumption that at a certain age one can’t change. It’s a choice. I aspire to be a lifelong learner, which means I will be a lifelong changer.

If you are an American, chances are you may mean racial/ethnic minorities, but I’m going to risk an answer that encompasses any minority, including atheists, for instance. Whichever we consider, I see twin challenges: The often unthinking “tyranny of the majority,” often based in feelings of entitlement or superiority and lack of understanding anyone different from themselves; and the need for minorities to organize and form coalitions/alliances with others to make up for smaller numbers and to get things done.

The-Krzyz comments on Nov 8, 2018:
Popoff has been around a long time, but he had to lay low for a while after his fraudulent but very lucrative "faith healing" gig was exposed. He drew big crowds, and his wife would "work the crowds," chatting people up. Then she'd write down stuff on 3 x 5 cards. When the "service" began, Popoff would come out, and start saying amazing things about people he had never met, based on what God was telling him. Well, turns out "god" was his wife, reading the info to him over a radio frequency, and Popoff had a tiny receiver in his ear. Atheist magician James Randi figured out what was going on, and even found the frequency and recorded the wife giving Popoff info. Popoff went bankrupt the next year, but now he's back with the water gig. Can't keep a good man down!

If it’s something I can tangibly help out with, I’ll consider offering. If it’s more a matter of expressing sympathy or consolation, I’ll do that with phrases I’m comfortable with, like “sending my love,” “wishing them the best,” or any of hundreds of ways one can express care and concern.

A concept of a god.
The-Krzyz comments on Oct 23, 2018:
Ah, this appeals to my residual, ancestral bit of "woo:" animism! Instead of seeing some god in nature, however, my animism sees nature itself - animals, trees, places, rocks, etc. - as alive and aware, therefore deserving of respect. My ancestors saw the world that way before converting to various "world" religions (Christianity, Islam, Buddhism), and the sensibility often survived alongside the new beliefs. I still find an emotional attraction to this, but my intellect says, "Well, hold on now!" So, I see it as poetic metaphor and enjoy the natural world for being just that: natural, wonder-filled and something of which I am a part.

The-Krzyz comments on Oct 21, 2018:
Sadly, not at all! Some religious people are so convinced their beliefs are right, it”s “their way or the highway,” with no room for dissent or “agreeing to disagree.” Some go so far as to see unbelievers as evil. Luckily, not all think that way (Unitarians, for instance), and can be open to a good dialogue about what you think and why. Especially with family, however, being pushed away can be painful. A lot of us on this site have had similar experiences. Hopefully, you can find some way to find some mutual understanding with your family. In the meantime, many of us find some comfort and support in creating a “family of choice” with like-minded people.
Dave Brubeck "Blue Rondo ala Turk" from "Time Out" []

I saw Brubeck perform in SoCal a couple of years before he passed. As the show began, I watched this group of elders walk across the stage, and wondered if this was going to be one of those performances based more on past reputation rather than current ability. Sheer agism! As they reached their instruments, the musicians straightened up and seemed to shed decades, playing with vigor and skill. First half was a tribute to Ellington, then on to Brubeck’s standards. A totally wonderful performance!

Au contraire, flat earthers... you ARE idiots. []

If the earth isn’t flat, then why aren’t the levels we buy at the hardware store slightly curved? Huh? The Conspiracy is yuge ...
Ever wish you could be the life of the party, the person everyone wants to get close to?
The-Krzyz comments on Oct 15, 2018:
Sounds risky, and not only due to renegade philosophers and overly affectionate canines! Any mention of “energy” can bring out the Chopra/spirituality/pseudoscience crowd, which will start pontificating about “quantum” and other such things. (Am still looking for an effective deterrent for such people. Some kind of spray?)
