phxbillcee comments on Feb 3, 2018:
& how do you come to this conclusion? I don't know if I'm a "New Atheist", but I consider myself an activist atheist, & I surely am very disappointed (to put it mildly) in many of Israel's actions, & in Drumpf's decision to move the U.S.'s embassy. There was even a thread on this site that discussed...
phxbillcee replies on Feb 4, 2018:
I see christianity as a definite negative on American society, now, & see a number of them as working towards a xtian theocracy in the future. I also see islam in total as a worldwide threat, even the moderates, as they give cover to the extremists, just as moderate xtians do to the extreme of their religion. I see religion, period, as the biggest problem, hence the reason I consider myself an anti-theist. I do happen to agree with much that Hitchens brought up in "god is not Great", & much of what Harris has said about the dangers of Islam. It makes no sense to ignore these very real problems in the name of "liberalism". I also agree that Israel has committed, & is still committing, many human-rights violations, both in country & in Palestine. Just like we have India/Pakistan, Myanmar & their muslim population, the former Yugoslavian areas (Bosnia, etc.), Ireland, the list goes on. Religion is not the only reason for these conflicts, but it eggs them on & gives them cover & excuse. Religion poisons everything!

I think you should be honest, but you don't have to trot out your whole history right away (unless directly asked, then don't lie). Many of your questions will be answered, even if not in detail as the date progresses, so no need to push right away. Just be honest & be yourself.
phxbillcee replies on Feb 1, 2018:
No, be honest, but you don't have to give a full autobiography & treatise on every subject on the first date. The point of a date, especially a first date, is to have fun, not spout soliloquies.

phxbillcee replies on Jan 31, 2018:
I think "A Wrinkle In Time" was one of the earliest & it had a profound mental & emotional effect on me. I can still feel the echoes of what I felt back then. I believe, in a subconscious sense, that it somewhat shaped my outlook on good vs evil, & standing up for what was right, no matter how frightened. About loyalty & love & sorrow. Dang, it STILL gets me. Later books were much more "thoughts", & I value that, but L'Engle actually shaped me in ways that still resonate.
The biggest cover-up in human history (literally) Books of Revelation
Dwight comments on Jan 25, 2018:
Actually, Revelations as it turns out was a first century rant by an irate citizen predicting the fall of the empire. See Pagel, et. al. It does not predict the end times and never was intended to.
phxbillcee replies on Jan 31, 2018:
The problem is, with many Dominionists & other fundamentalists actively seeking the "end times", they may inadvertently (or deliberately) bring them about. Why look for a real peace in the Middle East when you are looking forward to Armageddon?

How many folks here know who this is, and/or remember his presidency?
JackPedigo comments on Jan 28, 2018:
Of course. Kennedy was thought of as a great president and loved by many. However, years later things got out that were scary and I realized his assassination might have been a good thing. One thing he is credited for is the Cuban missile crises. What most people don't know is that we put missiles ...
phxbillcee replies on Jan 29, 2018:
Don't think I agree with you that the assassination of an American president can ever be a "good" thing. There have been many whose policies I disagreed with, sometimes vehemently, yet I never figured killing them was the way to go. Not even with the current idiot.
I give up. I guess dating or finding the right person isn't in the cards for me.
phxbillcee comments on Jan 29, 2018:
Dang! I'm not the "be all, end all" by any means. & it's not just about me, but for an example, I reach out to a few ladies, get a response. Respond & nothing back. & then hear "not in the cards". C'mon! At least respond back & see. A little give & take is needed to find out if anything may be ...
phxbillcee replies on Jan 29, 2018:
I have somebody, for example, that is actually rated 99%, believe it or not. & is on this post! I left an open-ended message & invitation after a few exchanges, & then...nothing. Have no idea what I may have done, but it is disheartening. Ladies! Realize that we want a relationship, as much as anything else, as much as you do. Realize that we keep reaching out, a bit at a time, tentatively, just as you do, for we are just as leery of being hurt. You can just write to us without a commitment & at least be honest, but to just drop the whole conversation & leave us hanging & THEN say, "oh, there's nothing out there", well, please, meet us half-way.

stinkeye_a comments on Jan 28, 2018:
The issue at the heart of the "Aziz Ansari conversation" is not Aziz Ansari, or #metoo--its how we've been socialized to be uncomfortable with communication. Have you seen the meme making the FB rounds that says (paraphrased) "The reason we can't talk to each other about religion or politics is ...
phxbillcee replies on Jan 28, 2018:
Yep, the biggest thing, in my mind, that came out of this incident was the lack of communication or at least the lack of understanding. I think both parties have a responsibility in any relationship/dialogue/interaction. Women need to speak out clearly & men need to listen. Now, most men are hoping to "get lucky" so they will, even subconsciously, ignore subtle cues that point to "No". This is not an excuse, just what men are hard-wired for. We can overcome this. But, & this has been "generalized" in many a comedic bit, women often expect men to pick up on things that are really often just not "seen" by them. The old, "If you don't know why I'm upset, then that is the problem." type of thing. Ladies, consider us thick! Most decent men will not only stop if actually told to, but will be apologetic to the rafters. We have mothers & sisters & friends, we have been taught to be respectful & wish to be. But we want to get laid, too! If that is not where you want the relationship to go, Tell US! But, please, do not lead us on just for free drinks or a meal, that cheapens you & angers & confuses us. I am not, by any stretch, saying all or most women do this, but men are fragile, emotionally, & we are constantly on the edge thinking "are we REALLY liked?" most of the time, especially early in a relationship. I'm cool as hell, & still pretty durn cute, & I am not a newbie to relationships, but even I tend to be somewhat tentative at first...no one likes to be hurt or humiliated.

phxbillcee replies on Jan 28, 2018:
I surely agree with the last part of your statement, & the first is relatively harmless in most cases. Sure, anything may be possible, but what is probable? When I first started away from organized religion I hoped for a type of "Nirvana", I guess, that after one died you joined with a "Cosmic Mind" & learned/knew everything. Of course, this was the late '60's & early '70's, so other factors came into play, also! Nowadays I tend to lean towards the proposition that death is just...death. I think when one's brain dies, so does any possible consciousness. There MAY be more to it than that, but I'll be living with that outlook until further information comes by.

I think one can be honestly interested in many of the topics you presented (BTW, did you mean astronomy?) & still enjoy life. I find a kind of awe in learning about cosmology. Yes, I may feel a bit small, but only in a rationally humbling & realistic way, IMHO. I am a humanist, but part of that is realizing the place we have in our universe & planet & society, & how we share it with others, both human & not.

The error in his logic is that he's assuming the width of the energy beam as what we see as visual light that is radiating from it.

Since sound is an experience, if there's nobody there to experience the sonic vibrations thereafter released when the tree falls, no sound is created. So you're completely right.

As icolan stated above, sound is both the vibration (in a medium) itself & the perception of that vibration.

phxbillcee replies on Jan 27, 2018:
That may influence whether Monty offers to let the person change their mind or not, but not in the actual odds of picking the door. As long as you can't "stack the deck" by changing what was already there, Monty actually has no effect on the outcome.

phxbillcee replies on Jan 27, 2018:
Well, I'm not a liberal, I'm a Progressive. But I'd like you to go ahead & state these contradictions & blunders. Also, I consider myself an agnostic atheist & have no idea what you mean in that last paragraph. Christianity was founded on the god of Abraham, I don't "support" either religion as I find both of them & their cousin, Islam, to be just as flawed, as I do any other religion that I'm aware of, either extant now or in the past. & why would I like Trump for disliking Jewish people? I dislike the religion, not the people. & tho I am not a fan of many of Israel's policies, I never offered this video as a statement of my beliefs, necessarily, but for a conversation starter. If you would like to bring up specific points, then I can tell you what my stance is. I didn't "make" this video, I uploaded it to this site from YouTube, as I do many other videos. In short, I'm really not sure what you're saying here, but it seems like you are somewhat confused.
