What does Asylum Mean?
jlynn37 comments on Jul 16, 2019:
'merca is the reason Central Americans are forced to leave their country in the first place. The greatest shame in this "immigration crisis" is the capitalist corporations with the assistance of the 'mercan government and military, removed the legitimate governments of these countries, replaced with puppet governments, took the lands from the native, indigenous peoples to grow bananas and other agriculture products for profit and forced the people into poverty and exploitation by corporations and criminal operatives in an unsustainable life. When they try to immigrate to the country that forced them into this situation, 'merca makes every effort to stop their migration here. Just my opinion the way I see it.

Women's sexual desire can alter our lives. Your thoughts?
jlynn37 comments on Jul 10, 2019:
How women are indoctrinated from birth, strictly as a control means, with the constant bombardment that sex is "nasty", "dirty", "filthy", "slutty", "guttery", "dangerous", "unhealthy" has to lead to many women having such a distorted view of sex and it's necessary and essential place in the human condition is appalling to say the least. A good and proper sex education is essential for both males and females to function properly in any and all societies. The penis and vagina were created by nature and evolved to have a purpose and to be used, both for input activity and output activity.

I think religious "indoctrination" should not be allowed ANYWHERE at ANYTIME in a child's development. Indoctrination implies brainwashing, which is forcing only one idea into one's belief system and denying any other.

There are over 7 billion homo-sapien brains on this planet and no two are wired exactly the same so it is to be expected that there will be a wide range of thoughts, beliefs, ideas, realities, cultures, customs, etc. Liberals don't understand conservative thinking, conservatives don't understand liberal thinking, a-theists don't understand theist thinking and theists don't understand a-theist thinking as two examples.

jlynn37 comments on Jul 3, 2019:
I have been online and on various dating sites for over 25 years. I am NOT looking for a life partner and am here for friends only and to see what can happen within that friendship and nothing more. I have met many women online and have made friends with several through the years and we have enjoyed what we could share together within that friendship. I ask for nothing more and I expect nothing more. My experience on dating sites has been good for me and I believe it has been good for those who have chosen to be friends and enjoy what we can share together within our friendship. Some have been sexual and some have been platonic but all have been a good and enjoyable experience. Life is brief and unpredictable, embrace it now while you have the privilege and opportunity to do so. I wish everyone here and on dating sites well and success in finding what they are searching for online and in their lives.
The christians of Fort Worth, Texas went crazy over these banners promoting a seminar on the U.
jlynn37 comments on Jul 3, 2019:
I personally have little issue with the word "God" as it can be used as a generic term for anything someone "worships", be it money, sex, pets, power, fame, etc. If the words Yahweh, Alla, Vishnu, etc were used it would have a very different meaning. I still think the original phrase "E Pluribus Unum" is the appropriate expression to use. ETA: E Pluribus Unum (out of many, one) is in direct conflict with white supremacy, white nationalist, christian ideals.

if there is not God, I would like to know where did everything come from?
jlynn37 comments on Jul 2, 2019:
Everything that exists had a creator. God did not have a creator. God does not exist. The universe and nature is just as capable of it's own creation as god is of itself. It has always been perplexing to me why we can, and do, observe nature and the universe with all our senses, can quantify and qualify it, yet it seems that humans need to conjure up an invisible, imaginary, supernatural realm where super beings; gods, devils, angels, demons and who knows what else dwells, in order to have and enjoy the universe that exists before our very eyes. “Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?” ― Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

jlynn37 comments on Jun 22, 2019:

Have you ever had anything that could be termed miraculous happen to you?
jlynn37 comments on Jun 22, 2019:
In my opinion, a "miracle" is something that can not happen in the natural world, (e.g. returning from the dead, an amputated limb reappearing). If it happens in the natural world, (e.g. 1 lone survivor of a catastrophic event), it may be a very rare event but is not a miracle.

Alcoholics Anonymous... Is a religious cult?

The bottom line for me becoming an atheist is the feeling of freedom.
jlynn37 comments on Jun 19, 2019:
In my opinion, the bottom line for anyone being an A-theist is, or should be, there is no credible evidence, facts or data to support the existence of any god(s). I would add to your creed; do or cause no harm.

jlynn37 comments on Jun 7, 2019:
I enjoyed my childhood and had so much fun that I wanted to remain a child forever and never grow up so I never gave any thought as to what I wanted to do/be as an adult. After I graduated from HS I just went where life took me and it has been a wonderful adventure and has ended well for me so far. Life is good.

I am amazed every time I read the history around the Bible.
jlynn37 comments on Jun 7, 2019:
In my opinion, the old testament is a covenant between god and the Hebrew people, it's chosen people for whatever reason, and does not apply to anyone else on the planet, then or now. It is nothing more than a Hebrew creation myth for how the Hebrew people came into existence just as all tribes have their own creation myths for their existence.
Am I being unreasonable?

ETA: There are just too many places to shop and if that bothers you, stop patronizing their business. I personally try not to patronize any business that displays their religion and/or a confederate flag. You do you, I do me and let's strive to do or cause no harm.

jlynn37 comments on Jun 5, 2019:
If non-believers do not express themselves and are activists, the believers most definitely do express themselves and are activists and will do everything they can to impose their beliefs on everyone, so sitting quietly by and allowing it to happen is just not tenable, in my opinion. Of course just doing it on an Agnostic/A-theist internet sites is just preaching to the choir. Make your voice known at the voting booth on election day.
