Would you rather be crazy rich or deeply in love?

With love, you are rich.
Are you all ready for April 23rd??? And you thought TAX DAY was stressful. :P [patheos.com]

What’s going on April 23rd? Edit: Doh, the link.
Things that people put in dating profiles that are pet peeves. Discuss.
indirect76 comments on Apr 17, 2018:
The ‘guess who’ profile pictures. All of them are group photos. I have better things to do than play the matching game. Pics of their pet, or anything else that is not the person. I’ll be honest, I have to be at least a little bit attracted to a girl physically. Sorry. That’s what the profile pics are for.
I'm a little confused when I listen to Sam Harris explain that we do not have free will Anybody out...
indirect76 comments on Apr 17, 2018:
I can’t speak about what Harris is saying, but if you believe the universe is deterministic, i.e. all things have a predictable outcome, and our brains are in this universe, then it follows that all your thoughts and actions are predetermined by circumstance and that free will is an illusion.
Aaaaahhhhh changeeeeeeee my weakness noooo They changed it!

I don’t usually use cash so I can avoid change.
Selflessness
indirect76 comments on Apr 17, 2018:
Can something like selflessness be taught? How far does selflessness go? Is it enough for me to be selfless, because doing so makes me feel good or must I be so selfless as to ignore damage to myself? Food for thought.

I don’t see ‘would like’ to mean ‘is required’. It’s only a plus.

indirect76 comments on Apr 15, 2018:
I’ve seen that video and it’s quite interesting that I did not notice the gorilla passing through. That said, I don’t think you can compare that with the search for extra terrestrial life. One involves a human using their eyes to observe a scene, the other involves instruments analyzing data.
What is the most valuable lesson you have learned in life?

Animal Ethics
indirect76 comments on Apr 14, 2018:
I’ve always thought this. If we don’t raise animals for consumption, then they experience no life at all.

Should there even be the concept of a "billionaire"? Is there really anyone on this planet who has ...
indirect76 comments on Apr 14, 2018:
I think that would be a major demotivating factor for new business and make everyone less wealthy. I think a person should be allowed to make as much or a little wealth as they are able and want to.

I’ve always found Thanksgiving to be secular and apolitical.
This star is the farthest ever seen. It’s 9 billion light-years away. - The Washington Post
indirect76 comments on Apr 13, 2018:
I heard about this. The star is in a different galaxy than the Milky Way. Normally stars outside of our galaxy cannot be resolved individually, but this star’s image is magnified because of gravitational lensing. Insane.

indirect76 comments on Apr 13, 2018:
I would say Jesus is more influential by far. The theory of evolution is great and definitely helps us understand the world. I just don’t see it or Darwin influencing people.

indirect76 comments on Apr 13, 2018:
Yes. The fact that I’m an atheist is boring as all get out and not something I think of as far as my identity. Further, if I were to become religious tomorrow, I would basically be the same person.

What’s your views on the death penalty laws?
indirect76 comments on Apr 12, 2018:
I believe there are acts for which people deserve death. I do not believe we can properly and fairly administer that kind of justice without error. I also believe life in prison is worse than death. So I’m against the death penalty.
What good has come to the citizens of the United States because of the current administration?

Footprints
indirect76 comments on Apr 12, 2018:
I recycle, but I think it’s more important to reduce waste overall. Not using plastic bags at the grocery is a good move. Though recycling is good, it still takes a truck to come by and pick it up and it takes power to recycle the material.
Should all drugs be legalized?
indirect76 comments on Apr 12, 2018:
Legalize and regulate all drugs. Addendum: Everyone has probably heard that marijuana is legal in Colorado, but what you probably haven’t heard about is how the crime rates in that state have sharply increased, how child protective services has been swamped with cases and how graduation rates have plummeted. You haven’t heard about those things because they didn’t happen.

indirect76 comments on Apr 12, 2018:
My dream date is an afternoon of conversation over coffee, perhaps a walk along the river then dinner at a nice sushi place. Suddenly, I look up and see an owl staring at me from a tree outside. My feet are glued to the floor and I realize that I’m only wearing underwear and I’m late for class!

Understanding vegans
indirect76 comments on Apr 11, 2018:
Such a hang up on death we humans have. Don’t get me wrong. I’m all for ethical treatment of the animals I eat, but life... it’s predicated on death. It’s admirable that people want to reduce harm on other living things, but I think we have an odd way of viewing death as absolutely bad. Do you think animals comprehend death as much as we do?

indirect76 comments on Apr 11, 2018:
I must be alone in this, but that image is blatantly disrespectful of the beliefs of others. If you are surprised at getting banned, then I don’t know what to say. I’ve no idea what site it is, but you don’t have a right to be a member there or use their platform for your speech. I mean, honestly, what were you trying to accomplish? Was this an attempt to opening a civil dialog? No. It’s an antagonistic post meant to ruffle feathers. It does nothing good for us. Don’t get me wrong. It’s not like I believe people should never be offended. Sometimes the firebrand approach is an effective tool, but I’m willing to bet nobody would bat an eye at some holy roller getting banned from here for posting similarly insulting comics. That my friends is hypocracy and weak sauce. Weak sauce indeed.

Compliments
indirect76 comments on Apr 10, 2018:
Once while discussing some problems I was having, a good friend said, “well, you’ll be fine. You always roll with the punches”. It was the way he said it, with such confidence, like it was the most obvious thing. It gave me strength then and I continue to draw on it.
Can we have a civil conversation about American policy without getting emotional?
indirect76 comments on Apr 10, 2018:
Civil discourse seems to be a lost art these days. I tend to be apolitical, but mostly because I’m just not interested. Though, I do find your support of Trump interesting because you don’t fit the mold of the popular idea of a typical supporter (white, male). I supppose that illustrates a bias and prejudice I have that I always like to pretend isn’t there. But, back to the subject at hand, I wouldn’t call myself a fan of Trump, but it’s always important to me to be civil with folks. I also like hearing the other side. You never know when someone will enlighten your mind.
Anybody else watch The Atheist Experience on YouTube?
indirect76 comments on Apr 10, 2018:
Sometimes if I’m bored. It seems like they are just restating things from past shows, which isn’t really their fault. The subject of atheism isn’t that broad. I’m glad it’s there though. I know a lot of people really enjoy it.
Believers are always asking me, "If there's no god, what's the meaning of life?" Well, to be honest,...

indirect76 comments on Apr 9, 2018:
