On the subject of giving/receiving marriage proposals, what is your ideal proposal?
jlynn37 comments on Jul 18, 2018:
Hearing about someone else's proposal.
Utopian or Dystopian?
jlynn37 comments on Jul 18, 2018:
I do not think it will ever happen, we being the humans that we are. Minimizing the harm it does is about all I hope for.
What are some of the biggest scientific breakthroughs??
jlynn37 comments on Jul 18, 2018:
Way too many to contemplate. I think the telescope was a jump starter and put all the rest into motion incrementally and the human intellect, curiosity and brain did the rest.
I may not go to what is currently recognized as a religious institution (Church, Mosque, Synagogue, ...
jlynn37 comments on Jul 18, 2018:
God(s) is an invisible, imaginary human construct. No evidence, facts or data has ever been presented to support any existence. If what you believe, regardless of what that belief may be, can be supported by evidence, facts and data, then your beliefs are valid.
Do you give compliments with honesty?
jlynn37 comments on Jul 18, 2018:
Don't analyze things to death. A compliment is a compliment. Smile and say thank you.

jlynn37 comments on Jul 17, 2018:
merca' can do no wrong. Confirmation bias.
How often do you watch the news?
jlynn37 comments on Jul 17, 2018:
I actually NEVER watch the news, especially network news on TV. I get all my news sources from the internet that I have confidence in their credibility.
What are the best arguments you have in favor of marriage?
jlynn37 comments on Jul 17, 2018:
My only reason to marry would be if you plan to have children.

jlynn37 comments on Jul 17, 2018:
“The very purpose of religion is to control yourself, not to criticize others. Rather, we must criticize ourselves. How much am I doing about my anger? About my attachment, about my hatred, about my pride, my jealousy? These are the things which we must check in daily life.” - Dalai Lama
Has anyone played a musical instrument? I 'played' trumpet, with no practice, for 5 years. Ugh ...
jlynn37 comments on Jul 16, 2018:
I have "played" around with the guitar most of my life but never learned to play. I basically played C, G7, F and a few other chords to accompany my singing C&W songs as a teen. One of my life regrets is that I did not take piano lessons as a child.
What kind of philosophical school of thought do you adhere to in your daily lives??

The Philosophical Argument for Working Less (and Wasting Time)
jlynn37 comments on Jul 16, 2018:
Had I been born into wealth or come about it in any way, I would NEVER have worked. I would have spent my time doing as I please and enjoying any and everything that gave me pleasure and happiness. Your mileage may vary.
If you get invited to go to someone’s church, do you?
jlynn37 comments on Jul 16, 2018:
No.
What length of hair do you prefer on your significant other?
jlynn37 comments on Jul 16, 2018:
Any color, Long, short, bald, it doesn't matter to me. I do prefer my partner to have pubic hair, but again, that is not all that important either, just a preference.
Excited and then disappointed again
jlynn37 comments on Jul 16, 2018:
Perhaps it might be best not to assume anything and if you want to know something ASK.
I wonder about the wives of the murderous presidents like Putin, Kim Jong, Duterte and other leaders...
jlynn37 comments on Jul 16, 2018:
Perhaps they believe what anything is reported about their husbands is just propaganda.
Do you have a preference as to which side of the bed you sleep on?

jlynn37 comments on Jul 16, 2018:
Not to even mention killing every living creature on the planet, except Noah and family and perhaps some aquatic life, just because it was pissed at it's own mistakes and blunders in it's creation.
Sitting on my back deck watching a MAJOR storm coming. Anyone else get pumped for storms???
jlynn37 comments on Jul 15, 2018:
I certainly do. I live in Texas, in tornado alley, and I enjoy sitting and watching them build and progress across the sky. It shows such awesome power and beauty and the more severe and intense it is the more enjoyable to watch (from a safe distance to be sure).
I was a real Republican. I don't recognize my party now, or what it stands for.
jlynn37 comments on Jul 15, 2018:
My brain would never allow me to be anything but liberal and I am reasonably certain that a conservative brain would never allow it to be anything but conservative. In my opinion, that is just how brains are wired.
What would a Sunday morning agnostic/atheist community meeting look like?
jlynn37 comments on Jul 15, 2018:
Why Sunday morning? What is wrong with Friday night, all day Saturday at the lake or any day or time? I would imagine it would be like a group of people socializing with many common and uncommon interests.
How free is ur mind being an atheist?
jlynn37 comments on Jul 15, 2018:
My mind is free and being an A-theist has little to do with it. I am an A-theist because my mind is free.
From one of my favorite authors: "When one person suffers from a delusion it is called insanity;...
jlynn37 comments on Jul 15, 2018:
I might add that, When one believes their own delusion I would call it delusional, When one believes someone else's delusion I would call it religious insanity.

Fox News Op-Ed: Atheists Are ‘Bullies’ Who Try To Force Their Beliefs On Others - The ...
jlynn37 comments on Jul 15, 2018:
There is no belief to be forced on anyone. A-theism is a non-belief, not a belief, and it is just a non-belief in god(s), nothing more. NO one can force anyone to not believe in god(s). Beliefs are in one's mind and brain.

jlynn37 comments on Jul 14, 2018:
In my opinion, religious charities and non-profits are just a ruse to get people inside so they can Proselytize and perhaps get some donations.
Moral philosophy
jlynn37 comments on Jul 14, 2018:
You do you, I do me and strive to do or cause no harm. Never do ANYTHING to ANYONE that you would not want done to you. Care as much for the wellbeing of others as you care for your own wellbeing

jlynn37 comments on Jul 13, 2018:
A USA citizen, born and raised and now live in Texas. I have no interest in sporting events of any kind and do not watch any. I am diabetic and do not eat donuts, most sweets and drink sodas. I do not own a gun nor feel I need one. I do not drink alcohol or smoke tobacco or weed or do drugs of any sort and never have. I do everything I can to avoid the healthcare system in my country. I love ALL my human family. No one is excluded. There are some that I do not like however. I am A-theist and Anti-theist. I am that I am.
Has Christianity ruined crosses for you?
jlynn37 comments on Jul 13, 2018:
I never had a thing for crosses.
Question for the single people...
jlynn37 comments on Jul 13, 2018:
I certainly would and have many times in my 50 years as a single man. I have never regretted it in any way. I have been single for 50 years, have lived alone for over 40 years, have no interest in marriage or have anyone live with me, so I did not expect or want it to be a relationship, other than one that we both enjoyed when we were together and wanted to continue. I have never entered into any affair without the other person knowing my attitude about relationships, understanding my position, agreeing to my position and enjoying what we share together for our mutual benefit. I do not think that as long as 2 consenting adults agree to what they are doing, know what they are doing, understand what they are doing and want to do it, that you are "using" anyone and if you are, then both are using each other willingly and with agreement.

jlynn37 comments on Jul 12, 2018:

Any Perry Como Fans in the Peanut Gallery?
jlynn37 comments on Jul 11, 2018:
Mr C recorded an album in Nashville with the Nashville sound and it was exceptional (IMO). The Album title was, "The Scene Changes", and it can be heard on YouTube. You can search YouTube for 'Perry Como The Scene Changes" and will have links to listen to all 12 songs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbrdjCdW2wo&list=PL-XZ09spIzD1O0uoDb9-HK-BsFrBbOgNH
How do you feel about religious music being played in a gym?

Sometimes I think we atheists/agnostics put just a bit too much importance on some "religious" ...
jlynn37 comments on Jul 11, 2018:
In my opinion, luck plays a major roll in everyone's life. Luck is just a word to describe some phenomenon. It is just a random event the happens to be in your favor at any given time and bad luck not in your favor. I never get my self in a stupor over what words someone chooses to use.
How the Religious Right indoctrinates its followers with a false version of history
jlynn37 comments on Jul 11, 2018:
"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” - Joseph Goebbels

jlynn37 comments on Jul 11, 2018:
You can do what you can, but I think it might end in failure. The brains of cult followers just do not perform normally. Just my opinion.

What works for you when you have a cold?
jlynn37 comments on Jul 11, 2018:
A little information about colds. From what I have read, there are about 100 strains of the cold virus. When you have a cold, you become immune to that particular strain. Once you have had every strain, you are then immune from them all and will never have a cold again. I am 80 and I have not had a cold in years, for what that is worth.

jlynn37 comments on Jul 11, 2018:
And he will never accept the facts and continue believing what he wants to believe. That is how the CT brain works as well as the religious brain (to be honest, probably most brains. Confirmation bias is strong stuff). It is a total waste of time to enter into a discussion with someone with this mentality, unless you are just curious of how they think and what they believe. Just listen and make no comments or responses.

jlynn37 comments on Jul 10, 2018:
I would most definitely stopped to ask if she was OK or needed help. I had a similar incident happen at a rest area in the middle of nowhere in Utah while traveling and saw a young woman sitting by her backpack. I stopped, asked her if she was OK and need help, she said she was backpacking alone and was just stopping to rest. I drove on satisfied with her answer.

jlynn37 comments on Jul 10, 2018:
Religious fundamentalists and extremists destroyed the Islamic culture of science and made it what it is today, a fanatical Theocracy. It appears that, if they can have their way, the Christian version will ultimately do the same thing to the American culture of science and ultimately destroy America as we have known it.

They always show their pet in every photo and is always with them. To me that is telling me that their pet will ALWAYS be more important to them than I would ever be and if there were ever a conflict between me and the pet, I would have to go. Why get involved with anyone like that to begin with. Save yourself a lot of trouble and fine someone who will put you above all else.

I know this does not help at the moment and I know you are confused and hurt, but would you rather this affair (assumption) had never happened, so you would not be dealing with this now? "I could have missed the pain, But I'd have had to miss the dance". I have had many affairs in my 50 years as a single man and as I look back I realize that, had I stayed with A, I would never had met B, had I stayed with B, I would never had met C, etc. Life is full of painful and wonderful surprises.

jlynn37 comments on Jul 7, 2018:
I do not think you are using race as a criteria for any of what you say, but the character of the individual and that is absolutely the criteria that EVERYONE should use in all relationships and associations. To paraphrase a famous American, you are not judging anyone by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

jlynn37 comments on Jul 5, 2018:
There is hardly any of todays "music" (I use the term loosely) that I would even listen too. It is mostly noise pollution to my ears. There are exceptions but very few. I enjoy dancing to C&W but do not listen to any of it. I listen to mostly instrumental music. Your mileage may vary.

When did you last have sex with a partner? (A 50 and over confidential poll)
jlynn37 comments on Jul 4, 2018:
"I think sex can be pretty great, but sometimes it's not that great.". The worst I ever had was wonderful. "For me, I haven't been in relationship for several years, so it's been a long dry spell. ". One does not have to be in a relationship to have and enjoy sex. "I'm starting to wonder if this is something that one "should" be ashamed of.". In my opinion, one should only be ashamed when they have caused or done harm to another.
