I agree with you on where to get the best, most informative news...the "late-night hosts"! "The Daily Show", when Jon Stewart was the host, was just so sot on. It's still ok, but just not the same. Of course, many alums from that show have "spread their spores", so to speak, i.e. "This Week Tonight" with Oliver, & "Full Frontal" w/ Sam Bee.

I actually think its both. Evolution & natural selection is such an enlightening concept when understood at all.

phxbillcee replies on Jan 4, 2018:
Have to quibble a bit here. Agnosticism is we don't know or don't yet know, not that we cannot know or never will. Atheism is the lack of belief in a god or gods, usually, but not always, because of a lack of evidence, or a lack of sufficient evidence. (Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.) Now, individuals may vary on that scale, I consider myself an agnostic atheist. Others may differ or have different qualifiers.

He's a science writer, primarily on evolution, (& a damn good one!) that also happens to speak on subjects regarding religion, atheism & belief in general, & is damn good at that, too! Nothing he states is "dogma", & I disagree with him on occaision, just as I have my differences with Dennett, Harris, Hitchens, Krauss, et al. Atheism has no dogma, it is a simple statement on non-belief, usually on the grounds of lack of proof. Just out of curiosity, are you here just to troll?

phxbillcee replies on Dec 31, 2017:
Human sexuality, & all that implies; psychology, emotion, culture, sex, etc., etc., is incredibly complex. I'm an old fart, so I don't know if I totally buy into the notion of all these different "sexes" that seem to be sprouting up, but I have always realized that there is no one definition for either male or female behavior or sexuality. I'm a "straight" male, with many cultural "biases" from the '60's & '70's (& even earlier imprinted on me by my parents & culture), but that time of "sexual revolution" also helped open my eyes to the variety that exists. Bottom line, for me, at any rate, is "consenting adults". Anything else is repressive.

Isn’t it strange how life seems backwards?
HeathenFarmer comments on Dec 26, 2017:
In my life when I have received recognition it has never been because I was seeking it; it is because I worked passionately for or towards something I believed in without the goal of reward. I recommend to anyone stop wasting time on seeking things from living your life and instead live every ...
phxbillcee replies on Dec 30, 2017:
HF: Tho you did not actively seek recognition, working passionately towards that goal increased the odds that you would achieve recognition. I agree that the goal should be living the best life one can, but often talent, drive, or, for lack of a better word, "genius" brings recognition, entirely sought for or not.
figured you guys might like this :) steal away :P I sure did lmao

I could never have read the bible cover to cover. A few pages and I was bored stupid.
phxbillcee replies on Dec 29, 2017:
Took prison time (over 30 yrs ago) to get me to read the whole thing. Since then it has been certain passages as a reference or a rebuttal source. I recently tried reading the "Book of Mormon". What didn't bore me to tears made me laugh until I cried!!!
Is there a symbol I can wear for spiritualist which equates to the christian cross? I want to ...
phxbillcee comments on Dec 26, 2017:
Casper the Friendly Ghost? Sorry, don't mean to be snarky, but as an atheist I'm not a big fan of the "supernatural" at all. & "spiritual" seems not only wishy-washy, but kind of a cop-out, as well. Do we all have more than just a material basis? Probably. But the term "spiritual" carries about as ...

I have an "Atheist Atom" tat on my right forearm. It's my "freak-flag" & also meant as a conversation starter. I do like the yin/yang symbol, but don't want the "semi-religious" baggage that can be associated with it, & surely don't want the potential "New Age" label!!!
Looking for atheist "comrades" in West Phoenix, AZ area. Females & males for discussions & meetings....

Not looking to "buy" something. Looking for "sympatico" people for communication, friendship & possibly more. Why be so snarky???
What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?
MsOliver comments on Dec 24, 2017:
I would teach more controversial literature: 1984 instead of Animal Farm, Othello instead of Hamlet, Medea and Oedipus Rex instead of Antigone, Brave New World and Leaves of Grass, because fuck you and your sex denying theism! I'd also be even more vocal in the classroom about accepting one ...
phxbillcee replies on Dec 24, 2017:
I understand & sympathize, even if I don't totally agree w/ your "picks". Othello is good, but I love the soliloquies in Hamlet. I love both 1984 & Animal Farm. Best bet is to teach what you can & do a "recommended reading" list, I guess.
