is there anyone out there who’s had good experiences dating someone of a different religion?
Triphid comments on Nov 23, 2017:
No, not for me and I've dated/had relationships with a number of women from different religions and every time they've sought to convert me WITHOUT success.
How comfortable are you with the word "Atheist" ?
Triphid comments on Nov 22, 2017:
Absolutely and completely comfortable since I can view myself as being an Individual and NOT one of mere herd of Sheeple.
When did you first doubt religion?
Triphid comments on Nov 22, 2017:
I could say that I first had my doubts about religion from as early in my childhood as I can remember since my Father was an Atheist, those doubts became well and truly confirmed when my mother forced me to attend Sunday School ( she was a Methodist btw) and I was EXPELLED from every Sunday School and Primary School Scripture Classes simply because I asked questions. Even more confirming was the fact that prior to each expulsion, not only did I get hit with a cane at least 6 times BUT I was subjected to being called things like a Heathen, Pagan, Hell's Spawn. Satanic Bastard, Heretic and innumerable other foul and disgusting things.
Should religion be taught in schools?
Triphid comments on Nov 22, 2017:
NO, emphatically, Schools are educating children, etc, in facts and realities, NOT in Fiction, Superstition, baseless, unfounded Beliefs and false hopes and promises.
How do you deal with Door-knockers?
Triphid comments on Nov 22, 2017:
I have a hand made notice that sits on the wall beside my front door. It states that ANY Door Knockers have, by way of knocking, signified their acceptance of paying me $50.00 per minute in Cash and in Advance so that they may enter my home to 'discuss' whatever has brought them there. Have NOT had even 1 Door Knocker since I put that sign up 3 years ago.
For atheists - what makes you believe no deity exists?
Triphid comments on Nov 22, 2017:
Reasoning, Logic, Scientific Facts that are proven with copious amounts of irrefutable evidence, Archaeological Evidence, ALL of which religions either CANNOT produce or are COMPLETELY unable/ unwilling to produce and have examined, tried and tested under Empirical methodologies.
How do you tell religious people that you're an atheist?
Triphid comments on Nov 22, 2017:
I tell them out-right that I am an Atheist, I make NO bones about it all, BUT they do get quite a Surprise when I also tell them and SHOW them that I have a Doctorate in Theology and Comparative Modern Religions AND still remain an Atheist.
What is the non-theist replacement for "I'll pray for you?"
Triphid comments on Nov 22, 2017:
My response is usually, "Why pray for me, pray for yourself since I am perfectly fine and happy at being an Atheist."
Do you celebrate religious holidays?
Triphid comments on Nov 22, 2017:
I used to 'celebrate' Xmas for the benefit of my daughter as a child, then we both decided to make it our version of simply giving 'special kinds of gifts' once per year as tokens of sincere thanks for the Love, Understanding, Companionship and Caring, etc, we had shown each other throughout the past year. On her last "Thank you Day"I apologised to my daughter, Lorrae, for not being able to give her the things I wanted to because I had been completely 'snowed under' for the last 12 months caring for her, supporting her and being by her side whilst she went through Chemotherapy for Lymphatic Cancer, ( she was 16 years old btw and passed away on January 7th. 2001 with me by her bedside) Lorrae replied, "Dad, I've never needed anything else from you to show your love, you have ben my Dad/Mum, my Big Brother, my Best Friend, my closest Advisor, my Supporter through everything, YOU have been everything and more besides, what else would anyone ever want or even need. I love you." I will carry those beautiful words around with me for all my life.
Should public nudity be legal?
Triphid comments on Nov 22, 2017:
Why not, we are ALL born naked, it is only conventions dictated originally by religious beliefs that as modern humans we MUST be clothed in front of others.
Right handed, Left handed, or Ambidextrous?
Triphid comments on Nov 22, 2017:
Left-handed from birth but can use both hands when doing some manual tasks, writing, typing, painting ( am an Artist btw,), etc, are done left-handed, the same using a knife and fork. So often I wish that the world would take in a bit more notice that not EVERYONE is Right-Handed and make things just a bit easier for we Lefties.
How open are you about debate?
Triphid comments on Nov 19, 2017:
As an Atheist with a ThD (PhD) in Theology and Comparative Modern Religions I am pretty well open to debate at most times.
