Taken in 2015 just before all my hair was shaved off for charity. The girls at work thought it would be a terrific hoot to have me with pink hair, I thought it may as well be a mohawk if we're going all in :-)

Baptised and confirmed as a Catholic . Had doubts about all of it as early as primary school, couldn't square the circle then, can't now, so don't even try.
I suppose the absolute clincher, not that there was any doubt, was 9/11.

Found Christopher Hitchens a couple of years ago and he articulated, far better than I could, exactly what I thought.
I love intellectual discourse on atheism but not silly semantics and points scoring. Essentially each to their own just don't try and impose your beliefs on me or on the unsuspecting or vulnerable.

As with all songs for me it's the melody first. The words are secondary, I can't like a song if the tune hasn't grabbed me, but that's just me. I like this, it's a bit outside my normal stuff, but it's a good job I know the song because...........THE FUCKING SOUNDS JUST GIVEN UP ON MY LAPTOP!!!!!!

Is there anyone here that values the teachings of the bible, but rejects it's supernatural elements?...
ipdg77 comments on Oct 31, 2018:
The bible isn't the standard, it's a collection of stories. I no more value 'teachings ' in the bible than I do from a Harry Potter novel. I also take issue with the notion that we can take values from religious communities, they take values from the good aspects of humanity.

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
ipdg77 comments on Oct 28, 2018:
I don't think it's either really. Sometimes it happens, I suppose death or grief is the prime reason and personally I'd rather not do it in public but it's a human reaction not a choice (for me anyway)

I noticed a comment welcoming you along to the dark side, I share that sort of humour as to a lot of people we are on the dark side but perhaps it's not the light side either, remember in Poltergeist, going to the light was a bad thing!

ipdg77 comments on Oct 20, 2018:
I've never been described as a beautiful little buttercup before but to answer your question........I'm not entirely sure there is a who or a what. I certainly haven't modeled myself on anyone nor, as far as I'm aware, consciously tried to factor in someone's philosophy into my own. There have been a host of people who's lives have been amazing and inspiring, there are also others whom the world has revered but I am more guarded. I think I am a mixture of parental guidance, schooling, experiences, my intelligence and intellect. I have picked some nuggets up along the way that still resonate but can't put a finger on a moment. I would hope that I have learned how to think and would hope to pass that on to my kids so that they are well armed and will make up their own minds :-)
I made a general post asking for help in selecting political questions to be optionally added to ...
ipdg77 comments on Oct 20, 2018:
Is there a point to having political questions? If you get to know someone you'll find out and there are groups for various political views (or could be) But if you are going to have political questions so long as there's a 'decline to answer' option then fine by me :-)
I still believe.....Do you relate to this? ❤❤❤
ipdg77 comments on Oct 20, 2018:
I sort of agree but the issue isn't whether I give it and get it back broken it's whether I have it in me to give it, I'm not sure I have that in me any more :-)

Outside Time and Space?
ipdg77 comments on Oct 15, 2018:
As for the theists god bit it just another bit of bullshit they can't explain and can't justify so is meaningless. But on the actual question of existing outside of time and space. There are some parameters which would influence an answer but wouldn't it be another dimension because that would be outside our time and space but not necessarily there own? I await the deluge of intellectual stuff with baited breathe lol
Emotional Availability: Where does the "vulnerability" end and the stupidity begin?
ipdg77 comments on Oct 15, 2018:
I've asked myself the same question. I separated from my wife a little over 6 years ago. Obviously it had an effect and not unrequited love before you ask. I'm quite happy on my own doing my own thing and do think it would be nice to share things with someone but..........while I do generally think of myself as likable I don't think I'm particularly fanciable but I'm also aware that I may well be on my own because a) I don't ask & b) I'm so not sure that I want to risk going thru what I've been thru again and that I may not be 'available' and those are the vibes I give off.
Do you like being spontaneous or planning ahead?
ipdg77 comments on Oct 15, 2018:
Mixture of both. My ex took most if not all the spontaneity out of me really but given the opportunity I'll happily just do some thing for the hell of it but there are some things I like to plan. There is a distinct different between being spontaneous and going with the flow than having a fucking disaster on your hands and hanging on for grim death.
Why are you here
ipdg77 comments on Oct 15, 2018:
I saw an ad on Facebook and being a heathen thought I's take a look. I've been here since Feb this year and I'm looking for my cat :-)

ipdg77 comments on Oct 15, 2018:
Interesting post. I love Rammstein and always thought there was a bit of Depeche Mode lurking in some of their songs. Turns out that one of the members, can't remember which one, cites them as an influence. I can hear the Rammstein beat potential in this and it wouldn't be beyond it to imagine Rammstein playing this in their own inimitable fashion :-)

ipdg77 comments on Oct 13, 2018:
I've not really had anything confrontational either from a theist or a know-it-all atheist. I either spout a lot of sense or I'm too thick to notice but I like to think I can have a conversation with someone I disagree with. I suppose my sense of humour is sometimes not understood. There was a post about hate speech and was the answer more or less speech. I suggested that the answer was a punch in the face but got one comment that took that ridiculously seriously. Hey ho :-)
