The Death of Expertise

Started this discussion. Last reply by k.h. ky Jan 25. 8 Replies

An article was posted on another site I frequent, where I'm the only vocal atheist on that site. In reading it, I couldn't help but think about organized religion, and how many people claim to be religious, even though their occupation involves many…Continue

About DPL ... don't worry if that sounds foreign, it's an acronym I made up

Started this discussion. Last reply by booklover Mar 28, 2013. 4 Replies

I think it is important to consider that religiosity, similar to human sexuality, is a function of two variables – genetics and religious environment. I have a theory regarding a human genetic “potential” for accepting the god concept, which in turn…Continue

Hmmm - Has anyone here noticed ...

I used to participate in another very popular forum, which I no longer care to join in anymore for various reasons, mainly because they changed their format to something hideous and tiresome to deal with.  Apparently I'm not the only one, because I…Continue

What happened to Kalliope?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Luara Jan 15, 2013. 8 Replies

Anyone know what happened to Kalliope Worter? I noticed that he mysteriously dropped off of my friends list a while back. It was soon after I had linked an article in a comment to him about another Egyptian citizen who was arrested for making…Continue

The Farce of Heaven

Started this discussion. Last reply by Mathew T. Mar 2, 2013. 75 Replies

Why is it that religionists accept the concept of heaven without thinking it through to its logical conclusions?  To them, that is what this world is all about.  Live your life within the guidelines of morality, as dictated by a book that could not…Continue

Future commented on Mike Mitchell's blog post The Attractiveness of God: A Dream Review
"So deep down inside you want to believe in the concept of heaven? Have you thought this desire out to its logical conclusions yet? Theists fail to do so, instead they just like to wallow around in the sweet goodness of the thought of arriving in a…"

Future replied to Shawn's discussion Is Everyone in the world scared to embrace Athiestium as the real cold hard truth?
"The thought of eternal life is horrifying. That's probably where religion screwed the pooch in the biggest way. Imagine living as the same person (or soul or whatever) for a time span that makes your entire existence on earth infinitesimally…"

Future replied to Michael Penn's discussion A NON ATHEIST SUBJECT FOR YOU
"I struggle to recall my computer passwords. Distant memories - fuhgetaboutit. Although, once in a while a random old memory will surface for no reason. Unfortunately, it's usually one I would prefer to forget."

Future replied to Raj's discussion Bible: all laws must be obeyed
"For the same reason they don't try some of everything at the food buffet. They choose what they like. However, it would be a bit strange to tell someone they're going to suffer in eternal hell fire because they like Lima beans, so I'm…"

Future replied to Ruth Anthony-Gardner's discussion U.S. Solicitor General to defend lying in political campaigns
"I voted for Obama for the exact same reason - the clear lessor of two evils. The Democratic Party and the GOP are steadily becoming two sides of the same coin, and I would entertain a third party the next time around. Bald faced lies are not…"
Future replied to roland707's discussion Thoughts on Buddhism?
"Once the toddler is dead, nobody will know if the killer did a bad thing, or prevented the next Adolfo Hitler - he will just suffer consequences of committing a heinous crime. It sounds like an empty philosophy to me. However, like I said earlier,…"
Future replied to Michael Penn's discussion A NON ATHEIST SUBJECT FOR YOU
"It would be funny if she realized her mistake later on that evening, and ends up thinking you are the one with the sad mental deterioration for not correcting her."
Future replied to Sentient Biped's discussion Christian Group: Fast 40 days to prevent gay marriage.
"How is fisting supposed to prevent gay marriage? Ohhhh ... I must have misread that."
Future replied to roland707's discussion Thoughts on Buddhism?
"So if a Buddhist kills a toddler, they can take solace in the possibility that that toddler may have grown up to be a serial killer? Sounds like bullshit to me."
Future replied to Ruth Anthony-Gardner's discussion U.S. Solicitor General to defend lying in political campaigns
"Let's be honest, anyone who has read 'Change We Can Believe In', and couldn't see through the fog of unrealistic pandering, probably shouldn't have been allowed to vote. Although, I will admit that his opposition has made it…"
Future replied to roland707's discussion Thoughts on Buddhism?
"If someone is not using their religion as a tool to influence others, or influence policy, or to downgrade others, or to serve a personal agenda that affects others in any way, I couldn't care less what religion they practice, no matter how…"
Future replied to Two Cult Survivor's discussion Need advice on coming out to my spouse
"I hope it works out for you. If you haven't read it yet, I would emphatically suggest Sam Harris's Letter to a Christian Nation. It's full of logic that is hard to deny."
Future replied to Two Cult Survivor's discussion Need advice on coming out to my spouse
"If you are a believer, then doctrine says that the god of Abraham is a punisher. I would focus on questioning why those who blatantly deny him are not being punished, as well as why so many sinful Christians are being rewarded instead of punished.…"
Future replied to Two Cult Survivor's discussion Need advice on coming out to my spouse
"If a Christian god were monitoring Christians' behaviors and allowing for bad luck to befall those who it took issue with, wouldn't every practitioner of every non-Christian religion be suffering a far worse fate? There's a whole…"
Future replied to Gene Sokolowski's discussion ALL Politicians Should Be Made to Read: "Homosexuality, atheism etc: What's it to you?"
"It's a very rational essay. I wish rationality actually meant something to religionists. Unfortunately, the more rational that side of the debate gets, the more irrationally obstinate the other side gets. Regarding the whole procreation thing,…"

I doubt if I ever reread Anna, but I might try War and Peace again, although after reading the bio of Tolstoy, I'm thinking not. Both are rather tedious and could using considerable editing!

I've used Craigslist, but don't feel comfortable with it for some reason. Guess I like to actually see and touch something before buying it. I even tried to sell my truck on CL. (No takers--I live out in the boondocks.)

Regarding your comment left on my "newspaper demise" post: despite early failed attempts to get the local news off the internet, for some reason, I now  have full access. Perusing the headlines, my original suspicions are confirmed--the printed version is a waste of paper and money (mine). Free is good!

Hey Future! How are you today? I wanted to thank you for replying to my discussion. I appreciate your thoughts.

Well, wish you the best.

I liked it (your poem)!

As to "Alonzo Archimedes Future," I refer you to Gregory Peck's opus, Capt. Newman, MD, which featured Eddie Albert as the above-mentioned Mr. Future, though Albert's character was more conventionally known as Army Col. Norval Algate Bliss.

An odd flick here and there, but worth your time.

Your comments on my post are much appreciated. I've decided I'm not going to jump into the deep end of philosophical analysis of  the subject(s). "Shallow Hal" is my mantra!

Vogon Poem Generator.  Make sure your hands are tied when using, so you don't bite off your fingers.

Hi Future
Welcome to this world of rationality and peace, where the application of pure common sense has proved to be enough to lead to the open freethinking wisdom common to non-believers.
