Great news! Judge threw out Trump's claim that he can't be sued because he's president.

Agnostic vs Athiest
irascible comments on Nov 24, 2018:
Agnostic: unsure as to whether or not there is or are a god or gods. Atheist: knows that nobody has ever demonstrated the existence of any god, and so regards all god claims as absurd. I hope this helps.
Atheism is a myth. Just like "knowing" there is a god (or gods) is impossible, it's equally ...
irascible comments on Nov 24, 2018:
It is trivial to prove that both the God of the Torah and the God of the Bible cannot exist. There is no such thing as proof in science. I know that nobody has produced any falsifiable evidence to support the existence claim of any god in the last 5,000 years. Unless, and until, somebody defines a god in measurable terms, and produces falsifiable evidence to demonstrate the existence of said god, all gods must be said to be fictional and all existence claims must be regarded as absurd. Yours irascibly, @irascible

irascible comments on Nov 24, 2018:
It depends on where you happen to be living. If you live in Pakistan, atheism is regarded with contempt. In Saudi Arabia you are regarded as a terrorist. In other parts of the world, people wonder why others waste their time praying to their fictional god.

I have a soulmate and we have known each other for about six months. We have already been through all the heavy emotional stuff, and while we both still talk about such things occasionally, most of our conversations are much more prosaic, everything from her taking her dog for a walk to her latest published paper. We understand each other completely.

When did you first realize that religion made no sense?
irascible comments on Nov 22, 2018:
For me it was the realisation that nobody had produced any falsifiable evidence to support their existence claims of their god/s in the last 5,000 years. It angers me that these charlatans are still allowed to get away with peddling their lies, and it saddens me that there are still fools that believe them.

irascible comments on Nov 18, 2018:
I intend to live for as long as I can, but I accept the inevitability of my death. The thought of being dead does not bother me, but the manner of my going concerns me. Will it be painful, or largely free of pain? I am more concerned about the effects of my death of those who remain alive. My position, like yours, seems not to be expressed very often. It could be that it is an unpopular position, or people simply cannot be bothered to express it. Or something else. Or a mixture of all these things. As a child, I accepted the God claim from my elders and allegedly betters, but I was never very religious in the sense that you seem to ask in your question.

Getting rid of the crap that was rammed into your skull can be an extremely challenging exercise. Well done you for getting this far! Give yourself time to adjust your own emotional responses to the new reality that you find yourself in. Us apes scuttling around on this ball of rock, mud and water is all that any of us will ever have. Which is why we care for one another. Which is why we mourn our dead. Which is why we celebrate this life that we have. Which is why we try to figure out this thing that we call "the natural world" using something called "science". Welcome to the use of your brain. :)
