I am 81 years old and single for 50 years, lived alone for 40 years. I am here for community and to possibly meet women, make friends and to see what can happen within that friendship, nothing more. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Do any politicians in any party really care about "making America great again" or do they only care ...
jlynn37 comments on Nov 5, 2018:
'merca can't be made great again as it has never been great since it's violent and ruthless founding and continued perpetuation.
Only two things scare me: Life and Death!
jlynn37 comments on Nov 5, 2018:
Why should either scare you. Live your life to the best of your ability, do the things you want to do, enjoy your life and cause or do no harm. When you die it all just comes to an end for you. A disappointment for sure, but nothing to fear, as nothing will happen after that.

jlynn37 comments on Nov 4, 2018:
I have willed my body to the University of Texas Medical School. Once they take possession of it, it becomes their property to do with it as they see fit, which most likely will be used to train med students. After they are done with it, it will be cremated and the ashes will either be returned to my family (if they choose that option) or will be spread in the garden on their property. I do not visit my loved one's graves as they are still very much alive in my mind and in my memories. which I do visit often and with lots of happiness to recall our times together.

jlynn37 comments on Nov 4, 2018:
Reading the responses and rebuttals is the reason that talking politics (and religion) is a useless endeavor. Rarely does anyone change their confirmation biases and that applies on both sides of the aisle

jlynn37 comments on Nov 3, 2018:

GENERALLY SPEAKING, three things that most people don't want to talk about: 1. sex 2. religion ...
jlynn37 comments on Nov 3, 2018:
I have no issue talking about sex. It is a necessary part of life and enjoyable to participate actively in it or just talking about it. Religion and politics are pretty much a useless subject to talk about unless people will just allow others to present their side of the story without becoming defensive and offensive.
I have found many reasons to completely disregard Christianity. I'm an agnostic and still unsure why...
jlynn37 comments on Nov 3, 2018:
As an Agnostic A-theist, there has never been any evidence, facts or data to support the existence of anything supernatural, god(s) or otherwise, and until some is presented, the default is non-existence.

These Sumerian Clay Tablets Reveal the BIGGEST Secrets of the Solar System - YouTube
jlynn37 comments on Oct 30, 2018:
Writing something down in a book (bible, quran, gita) or on a clay tablet is making a claim and is neither proof nor evidence of anything. It is just a claim that must be supported by evidence, facts and data to be considered.
Is there anyone here that values the teachings of the bible, but rejects it's supernatural elements?...

Why Are Americans Still Uncomfortable with Atheism? | The New Yorker
jlynn37 comments on Oct 22, 2018:
Being an A-theist, is saying that there is no god(s), religion is nonsense, superstition, myth and can be harmful to society. When the majority 'mercans are religious, that is pretty much a slap in the face and being laughed at to them.

jlynn37 comments on Oct 20, 2018:
It is just another "god of the gaps" argument. We don't know why, therefore "god did it". Since we don't know why, it would be just a logical to say "fairies with pixie dust did it" or "the agent who coded the simulation that we live in decided to change the code did it". People will believe what they believe.

jlynn37 comments on Oct 20, 2018:
When someone states that they are "none" or "no religion", doesn't mean that they do not believe in god. It is saying that they have no religious affiliation. They most likely are NOT a-theist or agnostic but are theist. Just my opinion.

jlynn37 comments on Oct 17, 2018:
If the religious fundamentalists are successful in turning 'merca into a theocracy, are you willing to accept that cheerfully? If not then you had better put some ant-theism in your Agnosticism and A-theism and get to the voting booth on election days.

Arguments and debates
jlynn37 comments on Oct 14, 2018:

jlynn37 comments on Oct 14, 2018:
To an A-theists, when we die we simply cease to exist any longer. I think death is a little unnerving even to some A-theist, as it is impossible to imagine yourself not existing.
As a group of mostly open minded people, I am surprised by the number of persons who are openly ...
jlynn37 comments on Oct 13, 2018:
If the "different outlook or attitude" you are referring too happens to be god and/or theism, then I think we are justified in being a bit hostile, especially considering how hostile theism and theists are to "open minded people" and "atheists, agnostics, and skeptics". How would you interact with an adult who wanted to have a serious discussion about mermaids, leprechauns, dragons, santa, fairies with pixie dust as something that is real and affects our lives on a personal level and encroaches on our government, laws and public education?
Validity of a theory
jlynn37 comments on Oct 13, 2018:
In my opinion, there are no religious truths, just religious dogma. As for science theory, once a theory is established and verified, it is assumed and accepted to be true UNTIL proven false or wrong.

Why do you think the religious right are so intent on forcing their agendas on others???

To begin with their dogma requires them to do so. Then they are just wanting to exert power over others. Then there is their arrogance in saying that I am the only one who is right and who knows what is best.

Does evil exist? As non-believers do we still accept the concept of evil in its pure form?
jlynn37 comments on Oct 7, 2018:
In my opinion, evil is strictly a human condition. My definition of evil is anything that is done deliberately, intentionally, with malice of forethought that causes harm or damage to another. Non-human animals, plants, non-living things are not and can not be evil as it has to be a deliberate, conscious decision one makes to cause harm.

Proselytizing and trying to convert is the least of the issues I have with theists as it is just an annoyance and can be stopped fairly easily. However, the day to day force feeding of religion in the lives of others via governmental rules and laws is another issue and must be resisted at all costs. VOTE in November.

I practice love, empathy, compassion, sympathy, tolerence, inclusiveness, acceptance. I strive to treat others as I would want to be treated. I strive to treat others as thay would want to be treated. I strive to do nothing to anyone that I would not want done to me. I strive to cause or do no harm.
