Secular "Values Voters"- []
The-Krzyz comments on Dec 22, 2020:
A pretty good article with lots of good info, but I’m not sure about the whole concept of “values,” which often are more like beliefs untethered to our ever-changing realities. I vote according to my interests and ethics.
So much for moral absolutes.
The-Krzyz comments on Dec 22, 2020:
I don’t see the difference. Same wacky, delusional guy, onto whose story people project whatever they already want to see.

What Kinda Funeral Do Atheist Have?
The-Krzyz comments on Dec 22, 2020:
I am a secular celebrant, legally “ordained” in my US state, and write and deliver memorial services regularly. I work with the family/friends of the deceased to create a service focused on the life, character and achievements of that person in the context of their private and public lives, and the communities to which they belonged. If I do a good job, only the most rigidly “religious” attendees even notice that there is no mention of any gods, afterlife or dogma.
Happy Monday Y'all! Do you run hot or cold?
The-Krzyz comments on Dec 21, 2020:
Definitely run hot! It takes a lot for me to feel cold, and I have been chagrined by the increasingly hotter southwest summers. My typically high metabolism has other benefits: I tend to heal quickly from injuries; can enjoy wintertime hiking and camping; and also can dangle the prospect of lower heating bills to potential relationship partners ...
Russia Sentences Jehovah’s Witness to Six Years in Prison for Practicing Faith | Hemant Mehta | ...
The-Krzyz comments on Dec 18, 2020:
Such heavy handed measures made more sense in the Soviet Union, which had a vigorous anti-superstition policy, but now only serves the interests of the Orthodox Church, guarding its privileged social and political position. I find the Witnesses theologically interesting and personally annoying, yet undeserving of this kind of brutal treatment.

Happy Tuesday Everyone. Today's question is - how much stimulant do you usually take in in a day?
The-Krzyz comments on Dec 16, 2020:
I start my day at dawn with a fresh-brewed mug of espresso, dripped over a bit of condensed milk. I typically have a second cup in early afternoon, but will add more depending on workload/deadlines/company. (Back in my journalism days, I reached a peak consumption of 16 cups in 24 hours as I worked some very long days with frequent overnighters.) I enjoy tea, too (both green and black), but my primary allegiance is to coffee! (For fellow aficionados, I highly recommend Michael Pollan’s short history of “Caffeine,” a quick and very fun read.)

Happy Thursday Everyone. What's the difference between healthy and boring?
The-Krzyz comments on Dec 11, 2020:
Not sure I see the struggle involved. I stay healthy enough to do all the wacky, ill-advised, sometimes dangerous and genuinely fun stuff I love to do. Yeah, I got a taste of trauma bonding while in an all-too-long relationship with an emotionally abusive spouse, but came to my senses and got out. Emotional health trumped the bond.

Happy Tuesday! Which charity or charitable cause is your favourite to which to contribute?
The-Krzyz comments on Nov 24, 2020:
I tend to give locally, to groups whose work I can see, and avoid most of the larger organizations with high overhead and administrative costs. My one exception is the International Red Cross, because I remember my parents talking about how much it meant to them when they’d show up in the hellish places in which they were held prisoner by the Nazis during WWII (mom was a concentration camp survivor; dad a POW). Otherwise, I have been a longtime supporter of a small tribal college on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota, which I visit regularly.
Can an atheist be a proud Secular Christian?
The-Krzyz comments on Nov 22, 2020:
They may not use that label, but I think most of the people on this site fit that category: Having ditched the theological/“god” part of Christianity, they still often uncritically embrace the moral/ethical ideas for which the Jesus character is the front man.
Happy Friday Friends! What's something whose texture is repellant to you?
The-Krzyz comments on Nov 20, 2020:
Food-wise, I’m very adventurous, but draw the line at sea cucumbers! East Asian food has been a part of my diet since childhood, and I live in a majority Chinese community and am still discovering new stuff, some of which I like and some not. But sea cucumbers are one of the few foods to which I can apply the term “repellant!”

The-Krzyz comments on Nov 9, 2020:
Good for you! I think self care is an important yet all-too-underappreciated survival skill. I learned myself to ignore it at my own peril. Sometimes, my self care involves clearing my calendar, keeping to myself and creatively loafing; other times, getting myself outdoors for a nice walk and some fresh air. Probably the best lesson my life experience has taught me about self care is NOT to save it just for times of stress or crisis: cultivate it as a good habit, part of a plan to keep yourself healthy, happy and strong!

The-Krzyz comments on Oct 12, 2020:
I have a Braun electric razor that seems indestructible: still works perfectly after more than 15 years. I use it when I’m in a hurry. Otherwise, I like an old-fashioned razor with shaving cream and hot water. I like the ritual of it, plus the sensual aspect — the feel of the blade and the water on my face is invigorating.

The-Krzyz comments on Oct 6, 2020:
Varies wildly! I also do a lot of my work on a computer, and am a news hound to boot, getting info on current events in my car radio, my tv at home, and online in between. This is about to decrease as our heatwaves decrease, the smoke clears from our air, and outdoors adventure beckons.
Happy Monday everyone! What does October mean to you?
The-Krzyz comments on Oct 5, 2020:
One of my favorite months! I like to take my vacations in October, when (in other times) kids tend to be in school and parents at work. It’s the start of my hiking and camping season, and a friend who runs a pumpkin lot sets aside some good “eating pumpkins” for me to steam up and enjoy. Normally, I would also be traveling for some quarterly meetings around California, plus attending the annual Skeptics’ conference in Las Vegas — a gathering of like-minded folks that I will sorely miss this year. Finally, my fall harvest comes, and I am now picking tons of lemons, limes, tangerines, avocados, persimmons, bananas and pomegranates!
Happy Wednesday Everyone! I'm overwhelmed with work today, and I don't have a joke.
The-Krzyz comments on Sep 30, 2020:
Hey guys, Happy Tuesday! When you hear the phrase "Processed foods," what does that mean to you?
The-Krzyz comments on Sep 29, 2020:
A “process” can be all kinds of things done to prepare or store food, and like the words used to indicate the opposite of “processed,” like “organic” or “natural,” it can be used imprecisely or even deceptively. I avoid foods that have additives like corn syrup or lots of sodium, are fried (especially deep fried), or are processed in ways that deprive them of their nutrients (like many breads and baked goods). Oh, yeah: I only eat foods that are chemically based!
Happy Monday! What’s the spiciest thing you’ve ever eaten?
The-Krzyz comments on Sep 29, 2020:
A soft-shelled crab in a crimson chili sauce served me outside of Pusan, South Korea. Now, I grew up with spicy foods in predominantly Mexican-American neighborhoods in East Los Angeles, but nothing had prepared me for this. Nearly took the top of my head off after the first bite. My government minder was horrified: “Stop! I don’t want to explain how you died out here!” One of the few times I backed off of a meal I had started.

The-Krzyz comments on Sep 24, 2020:
In the last couple of years, I’ve gotten serious about integrating stretching into my regular exercise practices, and it has benefitted my other training and physical activities a lot. Most dramatic: A couple of years ago, I tweaked my lower back when I pulled a load of 150 pounds or so while not braced properly, resulting in lower back pain that I was told would probably be permanent. Not so! I started doing stretches that worked that area, and the pain is gone as flexibility and strength increase.

The-Krzyz comments on Sep 10, 2020:

The-Krzyz comments on Sep 5, 2020:
I also love seafood, and it’s become a bigger part of my regular protein intake. I grew up around boats, and my family used to go sailing and fishing off the California coast most weekends when I was a kid. We’d catch our dinner - mostly white sea bass back then - and then my mom would cook it up right on board. I’m no longer big on fishing, but gladly will eat the results! I like everything from fish tacos to clam chowder, and usually have sashimi once a week. My most daring seafood choice, however, is the infamous, deadly blowfish, served in a soup, Korean style!

The-Krzyz comments on Aug 27, 2020:
Sounds like you had “Sewing Block!” What you describe is very familiar: Searching for that “Aha! moment” as I begin a project, usually something I’m writing, or maybe designing a presentation or curriculum. Right now, I ‘m getting ready to put together the fall edition of a quarterly news magazine I edit for a regional organization. If inspiration is slow in coming, I often start with the mechanics: assembling and editing articles, gathering info, selecting art and cartoons, etc. If the “Aha!” still eludes me, I goad myself into starting without expectations, knowing I can improve/change things later. Sometimes, “Aha!” just needs to see me start ... and I’m proud of myself when I see the process through.

I do a lot of work in the mental health field, and we have only recently understood the potentially lasting impacts of trauma on our health and developed better strategies for addressing it.

Gosh, I don’t know if they qualify as “hobbies,” but I’m pretty dedicated to my martial arts (practice daily), and am always reading (a lot of history), hiking/running, keeping abreast of current events (read: ex-journalist/news hound), and engaging in spirited philosophical/political discussions. Occasional recreational trolling ... 🙄

The-Krzyz comments on Aug 16, 2020:

Happy Saturday, Everyone! Something cheery, I think, for today. What is your favorite flower?
The-Krzyz comments on Aug 15, 2020:
I really like flowers of all kinds: the wildflowers I encounter on a hike; all the offerings in a nice botanical garden; and whatever I find in my fairly overgrown yard. I don’t typically think in terms of “favorites,” but maybe the spectacular epiphyllum is a good candidate! I also like that they bloom at night and only last a day or two.

Even living in a very large and diverse city, I still often feel the lack of a community of fellow non-believers and like our sometimes contentious membership with our disagreements, our breadth of interests and opinions, and diversity of, well, almost everything. The loss of any one of you would diminish that value and sadden me. If the site went downhill or even went under, I would mourn its loss. I’m hanging on for now and will see what happens.
Happy Thursday Everyone! When was the last time you were snooping, and found something you wish you ...
The-Krzyz comments on Aug 13, 2020:
I first became a journalist in the wake of Watergate and the Arizona Project, and have done my share of investigative work. Now, I mostly do other kinds of writing, but knowing how and where to find info, and how to check the sources of information, continue to be valuable habits/skills, especially these days. With my professional background, combined with my skepticism, I can usually “smell a rat” miles away, but once in a while that collides with my optimistic side, which still sometimes wants to believe in some things that sound good. A charitable organization wanted my endorsement recently, and their work sounded really good to me: until I dug a little deeper, and found out that most of their income went into executive salaries.
