Spirituality: Same nonsense by another name?
jerry99 comments on Oct 9, 2018:
I'd say define your terms. Spirituality can mean anything, some of which I can relate to, like feeling connected with the cosmos, the Earth, the environment, all living creatures, and such. It can also refer to nonsense like "the universe has a plan for me" or "this was meant to be." Sure, we're all made of stardust, but so is the slime growing in the sewer system. I find peace in my meditation practice though I don't consider that a spiritual activity, though I suspect some might.

jerry99 comments on Oct 5, 2018:
Religions will have to adapt to modern realities in order to survive in the 21st century. They will need to deemphasize their creation and messiah mythologies and focus on building communities and doing good works. Reform movements are starting to do this but they have a long way to go. The people who say they are spiritual but not religious are increasing in numbers and will hopefully take over from the fundamentalist idiots.

Men who never learned to cook
jerry99 comments on Sep 22, 2018:
After my divorce, I hired a cook to come in and prepare meals once a week. It was fun chatting and watching her cook and eventually I learned enough to feed myself reasonably well. Later, I learned quite a lot more from doing Blue Apron meals and I now am able to enjoy cooking for myself and friends. Cooking turns out to be fun, especially when done with a partner.

Questions for Democrats: Which Candidate is your top choice to run for President in 2020?
jerry99 comments on Sep 6, 2018:
Much as I like the first three people on the list, I think we need younger people in office. As an old guy, I know how hard it is to put in the sort of work schedule that Clinton and Obama managed. Obviously the current old-fart-in-chief is in way over his head even if he weren’t that old. I hope the Dems can find a viable candidate for 2020 but I’m not really optimistic.

Trump Says He Heroically Avoided Capture in Vietnam by Staying in U.S. | The New Yorker
jerry99 comments on Sep 3, 2018:
That was satire; this is true: Donald J. Trump, who received draft deferments through much of the Vietnam War, told the author of a coming biography that he nevertheless “always felt that I was in the military” because of his education at a military-themed boarding school. Mr. Trump said his experience at the New York Military Academy, an expensive prep school where his parents had sent him to correct poor behavior, gave him “more training militarily than a lot of the guys that go into the military.”

jerry99 comments on Sep 2, 2018:
The demagogue is one who preaches doctrines he knows to be untrue to men he knows to be idiots. ALSO All the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre — the man who can most adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum. The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron. -- H. L. Mencken

California diocese buys $2.3M home for retiring bishop - 10News.com KGTV-TV San Diego

jerry99 comments on Aug 8, 2018:
Forgetting about any possible divine entities that may have contributed to our success, I think it’s important to acknowledge that we never accomplish anything entirely on our own. We all owe a debt of gratitude to family, friends, teachers, society, past generations, and probably most importantly, our incredible good fortune in happening to be just where we are. It’s fine with me if you want to translate “good fortune” as god, but I’d say it’s more accurate to give credit to random chance.

My needs are really simple. I just want a 1/4-pounder without cheese. Today (and several previous times) I ordered it w/o cheese and got it with cheese. I’d think without should be the default, but no. I checked my receipt and it says: quarter-pounder with cheese - no cheese. Last time, I checked before I left and sure enough it had cheese. So I sent it back and waited several minutes, but didn’t bother checking again. When I got home, guess what? CHEESE!!!

You roll the dice and take your chances.

How many of you atheist are pro-life? Just curious
jerry99 comments on May 20, 2018:
I think, like most people, I view abortion as a last resort, when giving birth will cause immense suffering for all involved. In the past, when abortion was outlawed, it led to risky procedures that often resulted in great harm or death. I don’t believe the state has any business telling people what they’re allowed to with their own body. Obviously, we just don’t do enough for sex education, birth control, and new mother support — actions that would reduce the need for abortions — but the stupids seem to prefer pretending that’s not the problem. So it goes.

jerry99 comments on May 16, 2018:
There is no requirement that every thought must be communicated. I think a wise person considers a number of factors before deciding whether to criticize, correct, or pass judgement on another person's beliefs: Is it helpful? Will it cause harm? Is this the right time and place? Is it the truth? Are you sure? Really sure? For me, I'm happy to engage in friendly debate or discussion, but when words get heated, I prefer think hard about whether it's worth continuing. There was a meme going around a while ago, something like: "your Facebook post about politics has really changed my mind, said no one EVER!"
