What is the "incel" movement all about?
indirect76 comments on May 10, 2019:
“Involuntary celibate” - A movement by people that are unable to have sex to somehow force others to have sex with them. Something like that. I don’t know as I’m not an incel. Hopefully an incel can chime with a better definition.

I love electronic music! This track is very well put together. I dig the melody at 1:10 and the reprise towards the end. It’s not exactly my cup of tea to be honest, but as you probably know there’s a wide variety of electronics. I’m more into chill stuff like Air and Com Truise.

I’m not sure if Cincinnati is in the Bible Belt and I’m less sure what it means exactly to be an open athiest. I don’t hide the fact that I don’t believe, but it so rarely comes up that it hardly even matters.

indirect76 comments on Apr 24, 2019:
Why is there an assumption that a man’s attraction to a woman is purely and only sexual in nature? Having a romantic interest in someone limited to friendship can be hurtful, but certainly tolerable. Having that interest framed solely as a desire of lust is beyond aggravating.

indirect76 comments on Apr 16, 2019:
Neat idea. Perhaps it’s a good basis for a good science fiction novel. Wow, there’s too many things to point out that I disagree with, but I will try to encapsulate them. It’s not known if existence started at the Big Bang. It may have or not, and it may be impossible to know one way or the other. The universe did not evolve the same way humans did. Using the same word here is a huge conflation of the term. I think your notion of evolution differs greatly from the generally accepted scientific one. It’s fine to have different ideas, but it’s confusing to use the word ‘evolution’ when talking about your ideas. Biological evolution does not have a direction. There is no expectation that any species would evolve past disease, or any kind of perfected being as you imply. The current scientific understanding is that it is impossible to travel anywhere in the universe in a nanosecond. Again, you’re welcome to different ideas on this, but it’s useless conjecture without evidence.
Are you happy?

Best magazine about Atheism
indirect76 comments on Apr 14, 2019:
Most magazines are athiest magazines. Just avoid the religious ones and you should be fine. If you’re looking for one specifically about atheism, then I’m sure one does not exist. It’s not an expansive subject. So I really don’t know how there would be enough to write about periodically.

indirect76 comments on Apr 14, 2019:
First, I would never conclude for sure there is no god. Try not to conclude much of anything to absolute certainty. Keeping an open mind is what got you here. Keep it open. Morality is something that can seem tricky but it is fairly simple and intuitive. You probably already have it figured out, but may not be able to articulate it. Just keep thinking about it and do some reading if that helps. I would definitely NOT base it on evolution. Biological evolution is an amoral process that can be downright cruel most of the time. Basing morality on this can give rise to the ‘Might Makes Right’ ideas that lead a certain 1940s European nation of good people to commit atrocities.
