Aaron S. (USA) replied to Steph S.'s discussion Virtually Numbed: Immersive Video Gaming Alters Real-Life Experience in the group Godless Gamers
"At first I thought this might just be an issue of correlation, not causation, as you might expect heavy gamers to be disproportionately autistic (or something) as compared to the average person, but the second experiment seems to refute…"

"Thanks for the reply! I apologize for the insensitivity; I've heard differing reports about the use of "gay" in more formal contexts and was of the understanding that "homosexual" was the preferred term, but I'll be…"

"Aaron, I don't know if you will get other responses, but here is mine.  I'll stick to your topic of perspective of me as a man, and not perspectives of me as a human, or worthy, etc. Also, "homosexual" is often used by…"

Any gay men want to help me on a student project?

I'm taking a Gender Studies class on masculinity at my local university and one of the assignments is to interview ten people from a particular group about masculinity. I decided on gay men as the group. The interview only has to consist of 2 questions (I'm like, that's barely even an interview, but those are the requirements set by my professor), and you can answer them however you like. Obviously, no personally-identifiable information would be collected or shared with anyone, and if you're…See More

Aaron S. (USA) replied to Tom Sarbeck's discussion Men have sex and women make love. Or do they? in the group Secular Sexuality
"I do think that the two different terms have differing connotations, but they're mostly synonymous. "Making love" sounds more smarmy to me than "having sex" but there's no reason IMO to require one over the…"

Aaron S. (USA) replied to Debra Stevenson's discussion LDS Temple Rituals and being annointed from the 12 Hebrew Tribes in the group Ex-Mormon Atheists
"I left my parent's fundamentalist church/cult before I could learn anything about the temple rituals, but I know the stuff about Native Americans being from Israel is complete bullcrap. There's obviously no reference to it in the Christian…"

"One of my friends spoke up at this conference. I'm really proud of her :) Though, at the same time, it's sad that it even needs to be done in the first place."

"P.S., the Utah bill passed legislation but was luckily vetoed by the governor after a huge public outcry - I don't remember the exact figures now, but between 60-80% of Utahns were polled as being supportive of sex ed in public schools, so it…"

It's no problem dude. Honestly I just love to debate.

You're probably right about us all being nerds here. Although, I tend to think of myself more as a geek, but the point remains valid. I'm not specifically trying to persuade nontheists of my views. I actually spend most of the time offline trying to persuade the "spiritual but not religious" crowd. They're usually my target market and I slowly dissuade them from supernaturalism of the various types. Although, I guess they too are a little turned off by the word religion. They generally agree that it is the level of organization, the form if you will, and not the content that defines religion.

As I say this, I realize that you might be right after all. I guess I am trying to persuade people generally that have been turned off by religion, because those that are happy with religion or seldom in the market for a new one, even a nonsupernaturalist one.

Thanks for the insight.

No, don't worry about it... it was appreciated. ^^

Ah, thanks for the correction. :) It was my assumption that atheists tend to be more skeptical.....or at least the ones who seek out other atheists to have discussions with.

The friend I was referring to in my story is actually atheistic towards the Christian god but still believes in the existence of souls and ghosts...I find that most people on these atheist websites are skeptical towards those types of things as well.

When I tell some people that I'm a skeptic, they assume that I mean "conspiracy theorist". Hahahaha.
