p-nullifidian comments on Nov 29, 2020:
Sadly, once the oppressive communist lid was removed from this powder keg, it exploded into a raging inferno of ethnic-religious warfare along lines that had never been fully eliminated, or even blurred. For some, it seemed necessary to settle scores dating back centuries, and Yugoslavia was unable to remain a viable, 'cantonized' state. And so we learned a new word to describe what we witnessed: balkanization.

My deconversion, some years ago, was aided greatly by Evid3nc3, Matt McCormick, philhellenes and of course, The Atheist Experience.

Do you donate essential medical fluids from altruism, or from a financial perspective?
p-nullifidian comments on Sep 24, 2018:
The people who work in the mobile vans that come to my workplace in Silicon Valley every quarter, or so, have never once indicated that my donation of a pint could be remunerated. I'm curious, why is it allowed to pay someone to donate blood? We are, after all, DONATING! I've never been paid, never heard of anyone who I know having been paid, and find it rather 'twisted' to be 'incentivized to dontate.' Apart from a glass of orange juice and a sugar cookie, my only 'payment' comes from knowing that someone in need of my rather common blood type (A positive) will someday benefit.
Is there a relationship between personality and intelligence?
p-nullifidian comments on Mar 3, 2022:
I agree with @RichieO, as IMHO, human beings possess many different types of intelligences. Some of us are mechanical geniuses who could MacGyver their way out of any situation, others gifted and intelligent mathematicians or theoreticians, while still others have social intelligence skills and aptitudes that suit them well for interrelationships and problem-solving, particularly under duress. Would we say that the Mensan who scored in the top 2 percentile of a standardized exam, but couldn’t find their way out of a paper bag is necessarily more intelligent than the streetsmart individual who never gets lost, whether on land or sea, yet didn’t graduate from college? Personality, it seems to me, may correlate better with the type of intelligence one possesses, as opposed to whether or not one is regarded as intelligent, or even gifted. All of that having been said, when it comes to IQ tests, some studies have shown a correlation with the highest scores and the self-reported “I” and “N” attributes of the MBTI.
Ghosts do you believe or not? Have you had any ghostly, spiritual experiences?
p-nullifidian comments on Aug 9, 2018:
If there were ghosts, they would necessarily have physical properties and descriptions. In other words, they are a natural phenomenon, not 'beyond' nature or supernatural, whatever that is supposed to mean. In the absence of descriptive evidence, I remain a skeptic.

Was asked why I am agnostic and not athiest or religious.
p-nullifidian comments on Sep 21, 2018:
The agnostic states that he/she does not, and probably cannot, know whether or not a god exists. Meanwhile, the atheist states that he/she lacks any belief in a deity. One says they don't or can't know, the other says they don't or can't believe. And yet, in daily life, both conduct themselves in much the same way. Neither the agnostic nor the atheist relies on prayer or the supernatural to get through their day. Neither the agnostic nor the atheist accepts the orthodox religious views regarding the origins or age of the Earth. And neither the agnostic nor the atheist expects things to change on this planet unless men and women alone choose to effect such change. In short, when it comes to day-to-day living, the agnostic and the atheist are more similar than they might care to admit. When I encountered the speeches / writings of Robert Green Ingersoll, the so-called 'Great Agnostic' of the 19th Century, I found no philosophical difference between the atheist and the agnostic. Read for yourself, the essays "Individuality," "The Gods," and "Some Mistakes of Moses."

What do you believe happens when you die?
p-nullifidian comments on Jul 28, 2018:
If there is a 'spirit' within us, it would necessarily be a product of evolution. The question then is, when and how did spirits arise? Did Neanderthals or Cro-Magnons have spirits? What is a spirit? Is it a soul? Perhaps you're referring to consciousness itself, or self-awareness? If so, the question about what will happen to us when we die is often compared to our self-awareness, prior to being born. What we know for certain is that the atoms in our bodies were once a part of an untold number of plants, animals and even human beings, and when we die, we will return to the dust, and our atoms will become part of other living, and non-living, things.

Wait, are you saying that the criminal traitor and would be oligarch, Viktor Yanukovych—a mobster who patterned his administration after his buddy, Vladimir Putin, and who was discovered to have embezzled billions to line his pockets—was the victim of a US led rebellion? Are we to suppose that the Revolution of Dignity in Ukraine in 2014 was perpetrated by the CIA? Viktor Yanukovych fled his post to Russia in disgrace as the walls closed in on his corrupt lifestyle. When the protesters arrived at Mezhyhirya, they found a compound which included a zoo and a mansion that would’ve made the most ambitious crime boss jealous.

The greatest impediment at this point is the Supreme Court. And the only solution would be for Biden to stack the court in favor of a more moderate position.

Under this rubric it is almost impossible to envision overcoming the corrupt political process we have today, from party primaries all the way to the final election!

Never date a guy who talks about himself more than he shows an interest in you, whose eyes keep scanning the room instead of you, who appears to have a negative relationship with his mother, who looks down on anyone he views as 'beneath him' and who treats the restaurant staff like servants. Finally, speaking as a man, please know that bringing a man into your life may well add to your problems instead of fixing them! Peace.
I hope this is readable. It's an excellent argument.
p-nullifidian comments on Sep 7, 2021:
An excellent argument indeed! These conservatives are inconsistent in the application of state powers and I find their inconsistency mind boggling. According to their logic, they would have the state figuratively reach into a woman’s uterus at the moment of conception. (I suppose the fallopian tubes as well since that’s where conception actually occurs.) That blastocyst is the state’s property, not the woman’s. Apparently she has no choice in the matter, according to their logic, and not even RU-486 is acceptable to their morality. And yet in every other area of life these conservatives have determined that the state has no say in what people do with their bodies. Don’t make me or my school-aged children wear a mask, and whatever you do don’t coerce me to get a vaccination! But no-o-o-o, I just found out that my neighbor has missed her period and her home pregnancy test was positive, and she is contemplating getting an abortion, so now I’m going to sue her and anyone who helps her… What the fuck!

Although this is Louisiana, and I've been to New Orleans during carnival and seen some interesting things, so one would hope the (local) political pressure is minimal. Seems a waste to take the extravagant step of 'burning' the altar to rid the church of sex cooties when a simple bleaching might do! And what of the priest? All believers know, or should remember, what their God does to those who 'defile the temple.' Is their God so weak as to require an elected prosecutor to do his bidding? The Catholic church will deal with him as any employer might do to an employee who breaks the terms of their employment, but to press charges of criminal behavior is absurd.

These were all Satan’s attempts to snare us. The Bible teaches that witches and witchcraft are real, so it is no wonder that Christians today remain spooked by the ‘magic,’ ‘spells’ and ‘curses’ found in everything from Dungeons & Dragons (very retro, indeed) to Harry Potter, and beyond.

p-nullifidian comments on Oct 15, 2020:
The Epicurean dilemma was a prime motivating factor in my eventual dismissal of a personal, albeit capricious god, who, it is said, occasionally interferes with the natural chain of cause and effect. Having abandoned the notion of a personal, interactive deity, I retreated to the god of my avatar. Deism advances the idea that an all-powerful being created the universe and its laws, then moved on to other more pressing matters, never to be heard from or seen. To the Deist, by the time human beings evolved, this supreme being had been completely absent for the better part of 13.7 billion years! But even this idea is unsatisfying. Prior to the creation of the universe, what was this deity doing? How long had it existed in the nothingness of a non-existent universe? And what possible benefit do we gain by believing in something that can in no way be proven to exist and has zero impact on our own existence?

It isn't simply the heat of the day, or 'highs' that are the problem, but the nighttime lows. Firefighters have been noticing for quite some time now, that low temperatures during the night are rising, to a greater percentage than the daytime highs. This means that, in many cases, the dew point may not be reached, dry fuel is not moistened and the forest fire is not 'tamped down' during the night. It is possible that we've been focusing on an incomplete set of metrics, and that the rising daily (or nightly) lows offer even more compelling evidence of climate change.

I learned about Dietrich Bonhoeffer in college at a Christian institution. Bonhoeffer was a unique and admirable Christian leader who spoke out against the Nazis and the persecution of the Jews, and was executed for his dissent. I was unaware until this video of his position on stupidity. It would seem that his philosophy overlapped Orwell’s, and clearly the followers are just as guilty as the leaders in such a dysfunctional society. The lesson to be learned here is this: we should never focus too much attention on the leaders, as it takes followers and adherents for obscene dictators and fascists to maintain power.

Can science and religion be reconciled?
p-nullifidian comments on Sep 10, 2018:
As you know me fairly well by now, Matias, you can expect that I might disagree. On the whole, I consider religion and science to be at odds with one another, if for no other reason than the means by which each arrives at factual claims about the universe. The epistemology of religion is fatally flawed. When considering a statement of fact made in the teachings, doctrines, revered books and dogmas of any religion, one simply needs to ask, does the statement or claim in any way impinge on science? I’m quite willing to consider a religion which is devoid of the following terms and, as such, doesn’t endorse or believe in them: sacred, worship, miracle, holy, pray, divine, faith, sanctify, sin, heaven, hell, prophecy, clergy, laity, deity, just to name a few. Find me a religion, Matias, that doesn’t have these negatives, and I might be interested. Until then, in the words of my avatar, ‘My own mind is my own church’ and ‘The World is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion.’ In my religion of one, there is no need to reconcile with science!
What's changed since Columbine?

I used to teach junior high students, but I got out of teaching and joined the military, where I received firearms training. I’m also a gun owner. If I were teaching today, based on what I’ve seen and what I know about survival, I would keep a loaded firearm in my classroom. I’ll be damned if I’m gonna tell my students to hide under their desks and hope the shooter doesn’t come our way! Sorry, but that’s how I feel.
Sin What’s it all about.

Nicely summarized! The logic of Christianity is almost as bad as its morality.
The rise of QAnon was really the beginning of the end of half of America's grip on reality.

Oh yes, I had almost forgotten “pizzagate” and the cries of “lock her up” at Trump rallies. Thanks for reminding me. 🤬 The irony with these zombies is that when one of their own, take Matt Gaetz for instance, gets caught with a minor there are no cries of “lock him up!” Where is the righteous indignation of these crazies?

For the first time in my life I met and engaged with a flat earther, here on this website. I was accused of not having an open mind. When I told her that I spent a good portion of my career in satellite operations and space launch, I never heard from her again. I'm of two minds on the whole notion of engaging the fringe. I mean, if the batshit is that deep, do you really want to wade into it? In any case, if the world were flat, I'd sure enjoy living on the edge! ;-)
Some would say the glass is half full.

God is the construct of society ,Philosophy is dead.
p-nullifidian comments on Sep 14, 2018:
God's a construct, philosophy's waning not dead (similar to @Dietl), there's no evidence for an afterlife, so it may as well not exist, and longing to know the truth is merely that: longing. Like @irascible I'm with you on 2 of 5.
Wow Driving around Virginia (USA) and lost count A LONG time ago of how many churches I've seen...
p-nullifidian comments on Aug 29, 2018:
And yet Virginia is somewhere in the middle, according to Pew Research, when it comes to religiosity. One must peel away to the next layer of that onion, and examine religiosity by county. Fairfax county, for example, is probably a lot different than some of the neighboring counties. Even in my state of California, one can find regions of religiosity, and more mega churches (with 2,000 or more attendees at each service) than in any state. Think of what passing the offering plate means in one of those churches!
What does the West really think about the Ukrainian conflict?
p-nullifidian comments on May 12, 2022:
Wait, seriously? You’re citing Russia Today as a “legitimate” news source? Russia Today, an outlet that wears kneepads for the criminal former KGB official, Vladimir Putin? Seriously? Can you perhaps provide an unbiased source for your viewpoints?
