In my experience, there is no "objective truth". All "truth" is colored by one's experience, and most severely by their senses. Because people don't literally share senses (in that we are not of one literal mind (think hivemind, like in the Alien movies), we can never be sure that what I experience is what you experience.

We can go through the processes of doing a legitimate science experiment, and a thousand other people can repeat the same experiment. But until we can achieve telepathy or thought sharing technology or powers, we can never be sure of having the same results.

To me, this is kind of depressing, that even two people who agree on everything might not really be agreeing, since they might be having two different experiences but calling it the same thing. Now, here's the question. What are your thoughts on this?

How many youtubers do we have here?

You know, being an Atheist isn't the only part of my personality. I occasionally watch YouTube videos about Atheism, but my most watched videos are Creepypasta.
Got Too Admire Her.
ErichZannIII comments:
I can admire her for that.
Jobs and age
ErichZannIII comments:
If someone really hates their job that much, then they really should quit, no matter their age.
What evidence do you have that the human species is capable of surviving to the end of this century, given the realities we face regarding abrupt climate change?
ErichZannIII comments:
There's evidence that we're not living a sustainable lifestyle as a species, and that we won't survive to 3/4 of the way through the century. Just to be sure, I'd say anywhere between 2060 and 2075 the global population will be far higher than this earth can support with not enough land due to global warming melting the ice caps and not enough food due to the land near coastal areas disappearing underwater. It's possible that we could be doomed as early as 2050.
Are there enough nude beaches in the USA and have you been to any?
ErichZannIII comments:
Why does it matter? If you want to go to a nude beach badly enough, you'll find one. But they're mostly in Europe.

Do you responsibly avoid sharing misinformation?
ErichZannIII comments:
I try to avoid sharing misinformation, but there's more misinformation than valid information out there, and it hides itself well.
"The romantic contrast between modern industry that “destroys nature” and our ancestors who “lived in harmony with nature” is groundless. Long before the Industrial Revolution, Homo sapiens held the record among all organisms for driving the most plant and animal species to their extinctions. We have the dubious distinction of being the deadliest species in the annals of life." can you guess who the author is?
ErichZannIII comments:
I'm not sure who you consider the author to be. I would assume someone like Darwin.
The E-coli outbreak is worsening and they, the FDA & the CDC, are calling for a blanket ban on romaine lettuce. "The CDC released an update citing 53 confirmed E.coli sicknesses across 16 different states nationwide—more than 31 people needed to be rushed to the hospital stemming from romaine-related infections, and five of them have developed a rare kind of kidney failure known as hemolytic uremic syndrome. The newest cases are popping up in Alaska, California, Louisiana, Montana, and Arizona itself. " Both the CDC and the FDA have doubled down in warning shoppers and home cooks about this massive recall. This is the first time in recent years, the agencies have recommend a blanket ban.
ErichZannIII comments:
Not surprising. Bacteria are becoming resistant to drugs because the drugs are overprescribed.
500 Miles - Dr Who
ErichZannIII comments:
New term "Apatheist"..... Athiest= I 100% believe there is no God Agnostic= I 100% believe that I have no idea if there is a God or not Apatheist= I 100% don't care if there is a God or not I am 100% Apatheist.
ErichZannIII comments:
That makes sense. I'm sort of Apatheistic. I don't care whether God exists or not. I figure that if God does exist, He'd let people in based on their behavior as opposed to whether they believe or not.
What joke has been over done? Ex: god/jesus jokes in this (lovely) website.
ErichZannIII comments:
They kinda overdid the Agnostic thing in that episode of South Park where Kenny and Cartman were relocated to foster care and were under abusive foster parents who only gave them Doctor Pepper and Diet Doctor Pepper to drink (because like being Agnostic towards a God or Gods, nobody knows what's in Doctor Pepper and nobody can know) and forced the kids to comply with an Agnostic lifestyle. It was funny at first, but by the end, it felt a little bit forced.
I have recently familiarized myself with the new age spiritual awakening concepts of enlightenment and such. I feel the spectrum of New Age concepts has utter bullshit to more compelling theories. I have also familiarized myself with a basic understanding of quantum mechanics. Can't help but wonder if quantum entanglement has anything to do with the spiritual concept of oneness? Thoughts?

Are you involved in Wicca or any other Pagan religion at all? Witchcraft? Psychic abilities? Etcetera?
Can't wait to add the Thirteenth Doctor to my collection 😎
ErichZannIII comments:
I can't wait to meet the Thirteenth Doctor on television. It will be a long time coming to finally have a female Doctor.
When you are involved with someone, what is your comfort level with how often you see them?
ErichZannIII comments:
I wouldn't know. I haven't had a significant other yet.

Spontaneous Human combustion Fact or Fiction?
ErichZannIII comments:
There are examples of human combustion that can't be adequately explained. However, that doesn't necessarily mean that they spontaneously combusted.
Selfies and pics
ErichZannIII comments:
I don't care much for getting my picture taken in general, whether by myself or by others.
I had a really bad night last night. seems to me, 2 of those in a row would be extremely unhelpful to anyone, including me. THANKS to the folks who posted nice helpful and uplifting ideas. it was all MUCH appreciated!
ErichZannIII comments:
Just couldn't sleep?
Fighting in the middle East will continue as long as the religions hate each other because of the religions. Agree? Disagree?
ErichZannIII comments:
I agree with this. Muslims, Jews Christians, different sects of Islam that somehow hate each other, and of course Americans in the Middle East who are just after their oil. That said, the Middle East is doing a pretty good job destroying itself with its own oppressive government.
Anyone else feel guilty if they disturb their pet? My dog is laying on a blanket I’m trying to crochet. If it was one of my human children I totally would have moved them. But my dog???? No....
ErichZannIII comments:
To a degree, but not too guilty.
I'm taking a much-needed break from life today. I'm a really social person, however I need alone time every once in a while to recharge. I sat on my deck in the sunshine, watched movies, enjoyed some adult beverages and other adult things. What do you do to recharge?
ErichZannIII comments:
You sound like an introvert. I have friends that I enjoy spending time with, but I need to spend a lot of time alone as well.
Long but thought-provoking "If your country won’t even resource the wars with what its own generals say is necessary for long-term success, what else is there to fight for? But if you think the mission your country keeps sending you on is pointless or impossible and that you’re only deploying to protect your brothers and sisters in arms from danger, then it’s not the Taliban or al-Qaeda or isis that’s trying to kill you, it’s America."
ErichZannIII comments:
Like that song, BYOB goes, why don't presidents fight the war? In Medieval times, the king was on the front lines unless a diplomatic mission called for them to be somewhere else. I would have the presidents meet in a gladiatorial arena and fight to the death. Give them a shortsword in one hand and a buckler in the other.
Everything is nothing. We all cease to matter in the end. What is your complaint that would extend beyond your memory...? I doubt there's any. It's best to live your own life the way you want and let everybody be.
ErichZannIII comments:
My main complaint is about the government in America. We live in a kleptocracy and a kakistocracy (a government run by criminals and a government run by the least qualified or most corrupt).
This is the 2nd time this week my facility has food poisoned me!
