Many here might look at this and say "That's why I am agnostic/atheist" or whatever.
jlynn37 comments on Mar 22, 2019:
All religions are an "US v Them" mindset and that is just how they function and what they do.
Many with religious viewpoints say that religion makes them better as people,so it must be true.
jlynn37 comments on Mar 21, 2019:
"Yes I have no doubt that people became better morally". There is no evidence, facts or data to support that assertion and I believe the opposite is actually closer to the truth. Paraphrasing: "For good people to do bad things, it takes religion".

Enjoy your time together when you are together and get on with your life when you are apart. If that is not possible for you then I suggest to just move on completely. You only have control of what YOU do and no one else.

jlynn37 comments on Mar 16, 2019:
Since there is no evidence, facts or data to support the claim of the existence of any god or deity and therefore it is reasonable to conclude that none does exists to defend itself, it is left to humans to defend their invisible, imaginary creation.

In my opinion, if you are one who could/would believe and accept such irrational and unsupported nonsense, then you most likely would be a parent and a person that would do exactly that, as many believers demonstrate every day.

I am retired, have a fixed pension and SS income and nothing has changed in my income and taxes in the past few years. I was receiving about $200+ refund for years. After Bush I was paying $200+. My 2018 return I am getting $1200+ refund which has already been direct deposited in my bank account . Go figure. The only change on my return was Standard Deductions which I have always taken and was almost doubled.
Had a brief, but heartfelt & interesting talk with our current houskeeper.
jlynn37 comments on Feb 18, 2019:
My only thought is to allow her daughter to live with her father and that would perhaps free her from financial responsibilities and allow her more freedom to live a more frugal life and allow her to continue with her education. This would of course be a temporary solution and would have to be agreed on by both parents.

Politics is just coffee table fodder.
jlynn37 comments on Feb 16, 2019:
I am a voter and I vote in EVERY election and have since I became eligible. As far as I can determine, the only way we can affect/effect politics in 'merca is by voting, as an activitist or become a candidate. Once a candidate is elected, an activist is one's only option. If there is any other options I would like to know. I live in Texas and anytime I contact my congress person, I always receive a form letter essentially flippin' me off and telling me how great god and the GOP is and it will take care of things if we just pray hard enough and always vote conservative. What's a person to do?

I voted for Obama his first term and did not vote for him his second term as I felt he did not live up to his promises and was just another war criminal. However, I will never vote for a republican as long as the evangelical theists control the GOP. I would vote for Obama again as a lesser of two evils.

In my opinion, that is exactly what 'mercan capitalism is about. Obtaining wealth by profit, as much as you can, as quickly as you can, any way you can. Morality and ethics has nothing to do with it and in fact is a hindrance to that end.

jlynn37 comments on Feb 6, 2019:
In my personal opinion, for what it's worth, if religion is used in any manner or matter regarding any positive affects/effects it has on anyone's life, it is nothing more than a placebo effect. As an A-theist it has to be that since religions and gods are nothing more than myths and fairy tales.
