Who amongst us is the most keen to spread the agnostic message?
Triphid comments on Oct 2, 2019:
I have been an Atheist, NOT an Agnostic though, since about 8 years of age and I regularly discuss my Atheism with anyone who wants to hear it.
I grew up as a Christian but never felt like it was right.
Triphid comments on Oct 2, 2019:
Though I AM a 100% Atheist I still respect the Earth as being the Mother to all life upon it and the Cosmos being a kind of Father to everything within it, though going as far as worshipping either of those ideas is, most definitelty not for me since " Worshipping" anything/anyone is merely a religious ideology in my way of thinking and that is 1 thing, among many, I refuse to do.
I don't buy from them, but....

A friend of mine did something like that after local thieves kept stealing her mail, etc. She neatly wrapped up 4 very smelly, well filled nappies from her 12 month old baby in bubble wrap then into a nice neat carton that was addressed to her and left it by her front door, Yep, she even went as far as using packaging tape to seal the carton. 2 hours later and the carton was gone, nappies and all, she still wonders what expressions were on the faces of the thieves when they opened their 'prize."

Triphid comments on Oct 1, 2019:
In my nearly 60+ years of life I have met and trusted, etc, innumerable people that have ultimately turned out to be what I terms as " Absolute Users and predatory Arse-holes." My Dad always instilled into me that " Helping someone was not only a good thing for them but also a good thing for yourself as well," but that was in the days when people DID take care of each other. Now I tend to think that human-kind has reverted to the old 'jungle ways' of predator versus prey in the last 30+ years or so unfortunately. So, these days, sadly, I have become a bit more selective about whom I trust and help.
That is not the only money that they can't account for.
Triphid comments on Oct 1, 2019:
Yeah well, we've been in drought out here since around 2003 and we have gotten is a completely useless 500 million dollar pipeline that WAS supposed to cost ONLY 300 million dollars AND can ONLY run at half the pressure and supply that the old pipeline from the Menindee Lakes Water Storage Scheme did for well over the last 50+ years. Plus towns and Sheep Grazing Properties along the length of the Darling River plus the old pipeline and elsewhere in Western New South Wales are either running out of water or have run out of water whilst those bloody Cotton/Rice Farmers up past Bourke are LITERALLY permitted to SUCK out almost EVERY single drop of water that flows from the headwaters of the Darling Tributaries. So, exactly WHERE, HOW and upon WHO has this 7bn DOLLARS of OUR money been spent? Yesterday, in less than 5 minutes I counted 5 Semi-trailers, loaded with huge bales of hay, entering Broken Hill destined for local Grazing Properties AND these Semi-trailer loads came from Western Australia, donated for FREE and carted here for FREE according to 3 of the drivers.

Triphid comments on Oct 1, 2019:
Only sometimes when they INSIST upon telling me, with monotonous and seemingly endless repetition, exactly how wonderful, etc, etc, this miraculous change in their life has been and keep urging me, relentlessly, to try it for myself. But, having said that, my self-restraint is so high I ALWAYS resist the urge anyway.
Would you do your job if you didn't get paid?
Triphid comments on Oct 1, 2019:
I've been doing what I consider as my job for over 15 years now completely free. When I first started in the late 90's as a Child and Youth in Crisis counselor I received payment of $30.00 per hour plus another $30.00 for every 'Street Kid' that attended the sessions held 3 times per week. My provisos with the Uniting Church were that 1) each attendee was to have free access to the showers BEFORE the sessions plus have a washing machine available for them to wash their clothes once they had changed into fresh clothing, 2) coffee, tea or cold drinks be made available and free to attendees plus freshly made, nourishing sandwiches be also available and free, and that, 3) my payments were to be in cash and handed to me mid-way through each 2 hours session in small bills. My reason for wanting payment in small bills was so that I could, covertly, hand each attendee the $30.00 that, to my way of thinking, truly belonged in their pocket and not mine. Over the 3+ years from 1996 to 1999 I racked up a 'success' rate of 59% with getting the kids off the streets and into a better standard of life and living, then my daughter became ill and was diagnosed with Mature B cell Lymphoma and we both ( I was her sole parent and Legal Guardian btw) flown to Adelaide. Sth. Australia for her to receive nearly 10 months of Chemotherapy. After she succumbed to the relapse in 2001, I went back into counseling again in mid 2005 and decided to do it all totally Free of Charge and on a 24/7 On Call basis as well. Many of the cases I've worked with have been heart-breaking to say the least BUT the majority of outcomes have been absolutely uplifting and working for free truly gives me a sense of actually making a difference as well as accomplishing something with and for those that can ill-afford the ridiculous fees that other counselors want to charge. And the best news of all is that one of my recent cases has decided to study to become a counselor herself and to follow in my footsteps too.
people who want to refuse care to patients due to personal or religious beliefs don't belong in the ...
Triphid comments on Sep 30, 2019:
And those who are so set in their ways that they actually cause distress to those they are caring for as well. E.g. Some chemotherapy drugs cause the mucosal membrane lining the throat and digestive tract to breakdown and fall away, leaving the underlying tissues, etc, completely uncovered, raw and painful to the patient when swallowing. My daughter went through a number of bouts of mucositis during chemo and during one very bad bout a Nurse who should have known better literally demanded that, instead of having ice cream and cold fluids for breakfast, she have a hot breakfast and toast. The result, one very upset patient, a parent who very irately told the nurse to leave his daughter alone or he'd teach her to fly by tossing her out of the 3rd. floor window, an Oncologist who agreed with the parent and ORDERED the nurse off of the Ward immediately and NEVER to return.
My son wants to know who would win a samurai or a ninja?
Triphid comments on Sep 29, 2019:
Well, dismissing the 'gun idea,' and given that ninjas are, for the most part, a Hollywood invention, and in reality are only paid assassins, the Samurai would have the upper hand since they, traditionally, were sworn to succeed or die.
Is thinking that consciousness is a product of a vibrating universe a backdoor belief in God?

This came up on another post, but your opinions please ?
Triphid comments on Sep 28, 2019:
To my way of thinking, Theology IS merely a Theosophy, i.e. the Theologists merely 'philosophy' that their god/deity, etc, exists as per the somewhat inflexible parameters that their faith restricts them to. Whereas, a good and true ( for want of a better word) Philosopher can, and very often does, think out side of the box (parameters).

Triphid comments on Sep 27, 2019:
And when elected, instead of being treated like feted Demigods and receiving, immediately, unbelievable salaries, they should be placed on a Productivity scale of wages, i.e. they start on a ' basic' wage level first and as they become more and actually productive for the electorates and country so their salary rises, no productivity from them = salary stagnates, which simply means THEY MUST work for the people, ALL of the people, ALL of the time.

Why why why do religious people think they can make a believer out of an atheist?
Triphid comments on Sep 24, 2019:
I tend to think that their whole ' convert the non-believer' thing originally arises from both the their parents and the Priest/Minister, or whatever he/she is called, indoctrinating into their early still forming brains the compulsions that a) EVERYONE, without exception, MUST be made to believe as they do, b) anyone who does NOT see things as they do MUST be wrong, therefore MUST be converted, C) they WILL have failed their god and jesus IF they don't convert the non-believers and that we, the Non-Believers, are a Sinful people who need saving.

Yes, I'll admit that I have a truly decent Christian ONCE in my life, that was the late and lamented Reverend Brian Nicholls,a Methodist Minister.

The Xrstians merely did, as they ALWAYS seemed to do, WARPED and twisted the word to suit their own means and ends.

Triphid comments on Sep 20, 2019:
I tend to think that 'deluded' is a better term for the rampant Faithfools than delusional is. I.e. they HAVE been deluded from an early age and know no different simply because, imho, they lack what it takes to view both sides of the topic. Deluding a person with, perhaps, a weak will, etc, is how religions have thrived and multiplied for centuries, IF the 'weak will' can be strengthened enough then the corrosive and destructive influences of the religion/s will steadily lessen and eventually be replaced by Reasoning and Logic, etc. However, having said that, in some cases such a task would be like trying to remove a mountain by using a teaspoon and a thimble.

My life is good, I go out and look over my gardens, see the plants grow, I hear the birds singing, the trees covered in their finest greenery,I get to sleep in every Sunday instead of going to some church to hear tiresome rhetoric hour after hour, I can switch OFF the channels that spew forth religious twaddle and watch other channels instead, ones that either have good movies or documentaries, etc, and money I have is mine and do NOT have to pay the 10% Tax. aka, TITHE, to the church EVERY weekend, etc. Ergo, my life is as full as it can get.

You MAY like to try this idea as well. A few years ago I decided to do a 'bit' of homemade Halloween decorating in my front yard to give the kids a wee shock, I borrowed a Shop Mannequin, dressed it overalls, shoes and gloves on the hands the suspended from the archway over my front path with a noose around the neck, the handle of a large kitchen knife poking squarely from the middle of the chest, a trail of fake blood ( red water colour paint) running from the knife down the front of the clothes and a puddle of fake blood on the ground underneath. The screams from kids as they entered the front yard and came face to face with my 'surprise' made the whole evening worthwhile.

My idea would be to just take it slowly and gently with them, whoever they are, let them ask the first questions, give a short and easily understandable reply/answer and just let it flow on from there, it has worked well for me over the many years I have been an Atheist. Plus, try to gently explain to them that as Atheists we do NOT a Universal Doctrine/Dogma/Tenet, we do think for ourselves and not follow rules 'written in stone' as do the Believers in this world.

Many happy returns for the anniversary of your birth yesterday, and many many more to come as well.
There may NOT be life on other planets
Triphid comments on Sep 13, 2019:
Just as it is posited that "Life as WE know it"may not exist elsewhere in this vast Universe IT is only, imho, Human arrogance to think that we are correct. Who is to state definitively and empirically that, for example, IF the Asteroid Impact that killed off the Dinosaurs around 65 Million Years ago did NOT happen, thus giving rise to the reign of mammals, that the Dinosaurs themselves would NOT have continued to evolve, become the intelligent, dominant Life-form on this planet? Is it NOT possible that the descendants of the Dinosaurs COULD have become a type of bi-pedal, upright walking Homo-Reptilian creature with arms, hands, opposable thumbs, intelligent, inventive, creative, society forming creatures and our early mammalian predecessors simply continued on running away and hiding in the underbrush instead of evolving into the many and varied forms we see today? Just because life here on Earth looks like we see it does NOT mean,simply, that it MUST be that way everywhere else in the Universe. Evolution is NOT a straight forward, straight line process by any means,it IS full of twists, turns, back=steps, side-steps, cross-overs, dead-ends, restarts, etc, etc, the environment/s that life evolves in and from are a great determining factor as to how that life eventually develops and evolves through time, etc. Yes, Genes, DNA and RNA play a very important part in ANY life-form BUT it is HOW those Amino Acids combine that actually sets the blue-print and activates the evolutionary processes, e.g. One can bake a cake today using every exact ingredient and precise measure of the same BUT tomorrow and under entirely different conditions,etc, those self same ingredients and the self same recipe MAY result in something entirely different. That, in my opinion, is the SHORT explanation of how evolution works, ergo, LIFE, entirely different and beyond our very limited PRESENT comprehension could very well exist elsewhere in the Universe and be as different as fire is to water but still be intelligent, etc, etc.
New report finds many non-believers still believe in the supernatural - Big Think
Triphid comments on Sep 13, 2019:
Pull,the other leg, Kaku, it plays the William Tell Overture. Most Non-believers see supernatural/superstitions, etc, as little more than hoo-ha at the very least. What, we are supposed to believe that demons, hob-goblins, gremlins, etc, walking UNDER ladders, broken mirrors, black cats and all that other ridiculous twaddle MIGHT just be true WITHOUT even one iota of evidence to support it? Get a LIFE Kaku.

Small minds are found to be those who seek out or make up the easiest answers, i.e. the Faithfools fit the bill exactly in that one.
In case you wonder about the potential for addiction to masturbation.
Triphid comments on Sep 13, 2019:
It IS only the Xrstian Religions, etc, that label self-gratification as being a sinful abomination in the eyes of their god and cheesus crust ( jesus christ). And that is most likely because, a) most devout Xrstians wouldn't know a completely harmless bit of self-enjoyment even it bit them on their pious arses,and, b) they'd be too afraid of it just in case Sky Daddy and Co. caught them doing it, got jealous and cancelled their ' Free Pass' at the Pearly Gates.
Nothing gets your heart pumping like having to deal with a rattlesnake.
Triphid comments on Sep 13, 2019:
I'd rather come face to face with a rattlesnake than an Australian King Brown or Black Snake any day. At least your 'rattlers' make a noise, ours are silent, deadly and bloody swift when they bite.
I'm troubled when I hear people say that we need to "respect" people's religious beliefs.
Triphid comments on Sep 12, 2019:
WHY should we respect the beliefs, etc, of those who persecuted us for centuries upon centuries? In my opinion, Respect is a thing that NEEDS to earned, it is NOT a given right.

Triphid comments on Sep 12, 2019:
I can't for the life of me figure out WHY Churches need to be so ornate and opulent for a god that can create ANYTHING, supposedly, that it wants and yet allow/permit literally millions, if not BILLIONS, to live, starve and die in abject poverty.
California ministry forced homeless to work, stole their benefits, officials say
Triphid comments on Sep 12, 2019:
Well I thought for a while that the Organised Religions had sunken as far as they could, BUT this has proved to me that these 'so-called' "Men of God" still have NOT reached the very lowest depths of corruption, depravity and inhumanity yet. Give the bastards term of Life Sentences with the Hardest and Foulest of Labors imaginable, allow them NO Visitors, No Privileges what-so ever, seize ALL their personal Assets and properties,then liquidate those assets, etc, and give the monies back to those whom the persecuted.

History is ONLY written by the Winners and those who backed them, BUT never by the Losers. I often ponder over who/what will write the History Humankind after we are all dead and gone.
I'm not a woman, but I liked this, and thought I would share it: . . . .
Triphid comments on Sep 12, 2019:
I'm not a woman either BUT I have experienced similar with a few women in my time. I'm a pacifist by nature UNLESS you're a confrontational, in your face type Bible Basher then you WILL get the verbal 'Bum's Rush' from me. Yes, I like and enjoy the company of women and am 100% hetero, BUT the pushie ones are one of the biggest 'turn-offs' ever to me.
Open ended question for y'all.
Triphid comments on Sep 11, 2019:
Been going it 'solo' for so many years now, no-one trying to tell me how I should live, etc, given up hope of finding someone who will just take me as they find me, so I'd say that I'm more than merely 'coping' I'm mostly going great guns and being my own true self.

Triphid comments on Sep 11, 2019:
Why bother with just tossing an Effigy into the river, just toss the REAL thing in weighted down with a semi load of fresh, stinking horse shit just like the horse-shit he's been ramming down our THROATS since forever. Oh, and toss the entire governments, past and present in with him as well.

Triphid comments on Sep 11, 2019:
Oh FFS, what's next, the Feminazis seeking to ban women from sport like Cricket, Aussie Rules, Soccer, etc, because the uniforms are too revealing or the games are too masculine? I can't bear to watch the men playing Cricket, Aussie Rules, Soccer, etc, because the men are way too namby-panby, out-rated, over-paid Show Ponies, the women, on the other hand, actually play the game with all their gusto and are 100% entertaining doing. I always though 'Gender Equality' was an ideology that was meant to ALLOW women to freely choose and pursue WHAT EVER avenue/career they wished, NOT be shackled by the whims and desires of others like these Feminazis.
Good Morning my PEEPS
Triphid comments on Sep 10, 2019:
As my Dad would ever so often say, " ANY day you're still above ground IS a very good day." He was a local, hard-rock, Underground Miner in the local Silver.Lead and Zinc Mines for his entire working life, part of his job, besides digging through literally tons of rock to extract the ores, was as a part of the Rescue Teams sent in when there were huge rockfalls to 'extract' fellow miners caught under them, often they'd be crushed beyond recognition or have horrific injuries, sometimes it may take weeks of digging before they'd finally find their remains, so I reckon he was 100% right with his saying.
I turned 65 today, and this is how I feel this morning
Triphid comments on Sep 10, 2019:
I know pretty much how you feel, I'll be 66 in a few months time and every day my joints, etc, feel like I've been hit by a Semi-Trailer doing about 110 kms an hour loaded with tons of rocks. My joints creak and groan like an Outback Dunny ( Toilet) door in a windstorm and as my G.P. told me about 18 years ago, " Mate, IF you were a horse we'd have put you down by now....LOL" But HEY, I'm still alive. breathing and can enjoy things like sunny days, my gardens and the odd trip fishing ( well teaching worms to swim actually).
I can't stop laughing.
Triphid comments on Sep 10, 2019:
A truly bloody great cartoon, I almost pissed my pants laughing at it.
Can all 'why' questions be translated into 'how' questions?
Triphid comments on Sep 9, 2019:
As I was once told by my High School Teachers, " To find the How we must first find the Why, to find the Why we must find the How." To me it works the same with the old " Wisdom" and "Knowledge" thing, i.e. to gain Wisdom one must first gain knowledge then turn knowledge into Wisdom BUT first you need to have the Wisdom to want to seek Knowledge, no matter the consequences, BEFORE one can turn knowledge into Wisdom.
