Today I interviewed for a job as a caregiver for the elderly. One of the situations they put me in ...
phxbillcee comments on Feb 9, 2018:
They did give you a clue when they said to "stay away from both those", so, since you weren't being asked to lie you probably should have if you wanted the job. You basically showed, by your answer, that you couldn't "stay away". Now, if they would have said, "profess belief", you may have had to stand your ground, but you weren't asked that, or to lie, just to "stay away", which probably makes sense when dealing with the elderly who may not only be set in their ways but physically/mentally/emotionally frail.
Reasons for attending church or mass
phxbillcee comments on Feb 9, 2018:
Now, I may be wrong, & the numbers may go the other way, but I think for many church attendance is more tradition, habit & a social event, not necessarily a whole-hearted involvement. Too many people know that too much of their holy-books is just myth, so I think "true" belief is the exception rather than the rule. That being said, even the "closet doubters" may vote along religious lines for many reasons, protective coloration being one of them.
Sherlock Homes fan?
phxbillcee comments on Feb 9, 2018:
All of them, for various reasons. I enjoy all the different takes on the character & find them all valid in their own ways. Basil Rathbone was the classic, Downey Jr. did a credible job. Cumberbatch was just excellent! Many Dr. Who were in the same vein. Try, on TV, or on NetFlix, "The Blacklist" w/ James Spader. & of course, there's also "Bladerunner"! or "Criminal Minds", "Mindhunter" or "The Usual Suspects" - a great film. Or classics such as "The Maltese Falcon", "The Thin Man", "Double Indemnity", "Rear Window", "North by Northwest", "The Postman Always Rings Twice" (1946 version), many, many out there!

phxbillcee comments on Feb 9, 2018:
That is one of the words that have a large emotional/social/political charge on them. In one sense there is only the "human race", as we are all the same species no matter the minor variations, & there are so many gradations between the races that it all just blends into one. On the other hand, there are some definite minor differences between groups of people that show up genetically & otherwise (i.e.: sickle-cell, Tay-Sachs, etc.). I believe we are blending more than ever, tho, with wars invasions, droughts, famines, migrations, we have always done so, tho it will be some time before we are one homogenized people, if ever. I don't believe anyone is "pure" one race or the other, & on top of all that we all have common ancestors, which sort of makes the separation of people somewhat ludicrous. This subject, like many "real" subjects, is a complicated one & has answers on many levels.
I find myself questioning the critical thinking skills of anyone I meet who I find to be religious. ...
phxbillcee comments on Feb 8, 2018:
Yes, but we have to remember that many very intelligent folks were indoctrinated very early & have a large cultural/social/familial investment in their religion. Religious beliefs seem to be very easily compartmentalized, so that type of thinking doesn't necessarily bleed over into anything else. This is one major reason why we still have so many otherwise intelligent rational people that still "believe".

phxbillcee comments on Feb 8, 2018:
I'm not an astrophysicist, but,... I don't know if the original "distance" makes any difference. It would be pushed even further away but the expansion of "our" universe. & then one has to wonder, are the "laws" of physics, & our physical "constants", such as the values for the strong & weak atomic forces, gravity, etc. the same & what would happen if they interacted? Also, our universe ended up with what we consider "matter" as dominant vs "anti-matter". What if the other universe went the other way? It seems it would be just as likely. Just a few extra ideas thrown in there to keep things lively!

Evangelistic Atheism: Leading Believers Astray By Dan Barker
phxbillcee comments on Feb 6, 2018:
Ah, so if we don't exactly behave as you wish us to we are the "wrong" types of atheist. What the article suggests is basically "street epistemology", popularized by Peter Boghossian in "A Manual for Creating Atheists" (& there is a good YT channel, also). I do agree that one can usually get more flies with honey rather than vinegar, unfortunately, your self-righteousness in this post doesn't follow your own advice. The article is a good one, & I thank you for that, but not for much else.
Why was Britain's universal health care blasted by US minority-elected president?
phxbillcee comments on Feb 6, 2018:
Reuter's article didn't come up for me (error mssg), but I don't know if I need specifics. Drumpf in mis/un-informed about most everything. Universal healthcare is something that should have been part of our country for ages, now. When I worked in a law office I saw too many, mostly elderly, clients that were forced into bankruptcy due to medical debts. They were devastated & usually deeply shamed, from something they had no control over. It is a disgrace that in the USA hardworking citizens can be pushed to the brink of losing their homes & their savings over medical costs. Trump promised "great health coverage" for all, gee, what a surprise, he lied, & instead of improving did his best with his cronies in Congress to dismantle the ACA. Now, with this "tax cut" we will see federal debt go up & it will give conservatives the opening they've been salivating for to dismantle all entitlements! They've been trying to destroy Social Security since its inception. Get ready for the reinstatement of debtors prisons!

Spiritual Athiest/Atheist dating question
phxbillcee comments on Jan 31, 2018:
Yoga is not "spiritualist" in the sense that you go for the metaphysical (unless you do!). I, who consider myself an atheist, tend to side with Matt Dillahunty on "spiritual". It's so broad & ephemeral (pun only slightly intended) that it's next to impossible to truly define. Many atheists tend to be a bit more "natural/material", & the whole idea of spooky stuff & woo tend to be offputting. Nevertheless, your guy should give you more credit & you should both maybe explore what you both mean by the term & see if you're really that far apart.

Please, don't expect Cyrano or Byron in the first exchange! If we're too awkward, well, ok, maybe back off. But please, give us a chance & talk to us a bit. Let us open up as you do.

I am a good guy, smarter than average. Not too bad looking. Decent dancer, & can carry a tune in a bucket. I consider my partner before myself, mostly, when love-making.

phxbillcee comments on Jan 28, 2018:
Welcome, obis! Death, the fear of it, or the loss it brings, has been the mainstay for religions probably from the beginning. I think for most of us, we don't look forward to death, we just try to do the best we can with this one life we're given. Tho thinking we would either find all the "answers" or be reunited with loved ones after death may be comforting, I don't think wishful thinking does anyone any good in the long run, or even the short run! If one realizes that this is what we have I think one tends to try to be & do more here & now.

As I was thinking on this I read the other answers. I've come to the conclusion that we shouldn't rid ourselves of any emotion entirely, but learn how to channel & control the ones we have. I have to agree that we have our emotions for certain reasons, even if just to appreciate the opposite at times, & doing without them may leave us lacking. We just should not let emotion cloud our judgment or control our actions.

I tell them they can come in & talk, but I warn them up-front that I am an atheist that has read the bible. That usually has them saying that they will come back at a later time (which they never do!).
Opinion, please....

I do consider myself an agnostic atheist. I've gone over this in detail on a few other posts on this site, but what I would like to bring up here is that I proudly sport the label "atheist" for a few reasons. One, the fact that it seems to be this "branch" of the spectrum that is the most active in opposing religious encroachment of many of our rights. Two, that "agnostic" on its own seems wishy-washy unless one is really on the fence about the god question. Do you believe there is a creator god or not? If not, you're an atheist. What type or brand of atheist, & the level of commitment can now be added as modifiers. Three, I want to see the term "atheist" used as often as possible in order to have familiarity actually lessen the "contempt" & misunderstanding that that term carries in our society. As it stands, being honest on this subject in this country virtually guarantees that one will not win an elected office, especially any higher elected office. The more the term "atheist" becomes an accepted thing, the sooner we shall stop being seen as untouchables or pariahs. There has been a good discussion on this here, so I thank silvereyes for the original post. This same question, or variants of it are floating around on this site in various places. It's always good to get different input, either for new information & outlooks, or to help one refine one's own thoughts & opinions. I'm glad I found this site, even if I still haven't scored a date!!!
