Well, you know what they say. Correlation always means causation. So that socialism is for sure the cause of happiness.

Inter-racial dating. Some time ago, I used to blog on a dating site and I wrote a few pieces about ...
indirect76 comments on Mar 30, 2019:
It’s interesting. I was in the opposite situation of the author. I’m a -white as they come- guy that was with a Mexican girl for four years. I never felt the pressure he did. I honestly did not think about it much. I visited her family and she visited mine. There was no issue. I feel like it would be a different thing though if I were Mexican and she white. I feel like the color and sex matters in this society. Now, I don’t think the author is being racist for breaking up with her. It’s not her race per se that he does not like, just the drama around it. That said it doesn’t seem like a good reason to me. Who knows? Perhaps he wasn’t that into her in the first place.

A person shivering and scared for their life is a miserable thing and I would not pass judgement or make conclusions based on their behavior.
Settle for moderate to boring sex?
indirect76 comments on Mar 30, 2019:
I can’t say what you should do, but personally I would definitely accept moderate to bad sex for someone I really connected with.

Creeped Out?
indirect76 comments on Mar 29, 2019:
It’s been suggested that xenophobia and racism could be a result of natural selection. People coming into contact with far flung populations can put themselves at risk due to them not having built up an immunity to the common germs of that location.

I don’t find it offensive or distasteful, just boring. I’m curious if it would also repulse you if there was a group for men who like older women?
Does the fact that you are agnostic with regard to religion make its way into effecting your ...
indirect76 comments on Mar 28, 2019:
Being agnostic does not -affect- my day to day life. Some problems are able to be solved using intuition, others require science. Some are beyond science and intuition, so I don’t have any approach. When it comes to religion, it’s not even something I put any effort towards tackling.

What do you say about near death experiences where the person claims they've seen heaven or hell?
indirect76 comments on Mar 27, 2019:
I don’t know, probably something like, “oh, that’s neat. Tell me more”. Then continue the conversation based on what they say. I’ve never talked to someone who’s had a near death experience so I’d be interested in what they had to say.
What will cause the apocalypse?

Giving money to panhandlers/homeless
indirect76 comments on Mar 27, 2019:
I often encounter this situation in downtown Cincinnati, which is really just South Dayton. It’s usually while I’m going to lunch, so at times I’ll do something that leaves no doubt what the money is used for. The motivation, nature and result of kindness is a subject that I could go on and on about really.

indirect76 comments on Mar 27, 2019:
Does the idea of self defense deserve respect? Should police be shamed for using violence to arrest criminals? You have commendable ideals, sure. Unfortunately things are always more complex than we would like, and absolutes are hard to come by.

Yes, people have to eat to survive. If someone doesn’t enjoy the work necessary to eat, then I don’t know what to say. I don’t see how this is a falsehood or our downfall honestly.

Religion. The root of evil?
indirect76 comments on Mar 25, 2019:
Let’s break this down mathematically. X=√ EVIL E=2.7182... V=Roman numeral 5 I=Roman numeral 1 L=Roman numeral 50 X=√ 2.7182 x 5 x 1 x 50 = 26.06... The root of evil is approximately 26. 26, you bastard!!

‘Duck Dynasty’ star fantasizes about the rape and murder of an atheist family | Michael Stone

The guy is making an idiotic point, but he isn’t fantasizing. The word ‘fantasize’ carries weight that that is not supported by the article. We don’t need to do this horse shit.

indirect76 comments on Mar 22, 2019:
You are off base a bit here. I’m an athiest because I don’t believe that a god exists. I’m not deciding there is no god. Others can disagree and even be correct because they may have more information or my logic may be flawed. I’m agnostic because the only thing I know is that I exist. It’s entirely possible that someone else knows that god exists for the same reasons as above.
