Early 50's married empty nester. I enjoy the diversity of opinions and reasoned discourse that occurs on this site. Members here seem to be quite a bit more intelligent than the average on other social media. I occasionally try to post something interesting myself but am not above posting memes and humor. I know we are all at a different point on the journey of self discovery that is atheism/agnosticism. Thank you for sharing yours with me.

The pointlessness of happy-clappy atheism - UnHerd
OldMetalHead comments on Aug 5, 2019:
Groups of atheists are necessarily far more diverse than your average church congregation as the only thing we have in common is our disbelief, and yet I still see people here and in other atheist forums more than willing to help each other through tough times. Two questions: Is it failure that drives these congregants together or background and a shared sky daddy dillusion? What is wrong with providing a dating agency for lonely metropolitans who don't want to deal with the dillusional any more?
Its amazing that some days I feel as if revealing my atheist views could impact my relationships ...
OldMetalHead comments on Aug 3, 2019:
I only started saying I'm an atheist at work recently (same company 24 years). I used to say I'm not very religious. It didn't drive most people away but did let them know that it wasn't a subject that I wanted to discuss. Family may be more difficult. Mine wasn't.
I already know that i do not believe in God But i do not wanna say anything for sure, i mean who ...
OldMetalHead comments on Aug 3, 2019:
I think unless you were lucky enough to be raised atheist from birth, then you will have these feelings. This Epicurus quote is simple but powerful. It helped me reconcile my feelings.

People will respect you if you respect them? True or false?
OldMetalHead comments on Aug 2, 2019:
False. Just as an example, a lot of religious people won't respect a non-believer or "alternative lifestyle" regardless of character. It doesn't matter how much respect the other person shows to the religious person.
Did 60s and 70s protest rock die an inevitable death with the end of the Vietnam War, or was it ...
OldMetalHead comments on Aug 2, 2019:
Protest rock became mainstream in the late 60's and early 70's like it never had before. The end of the Vietnam war created a void for sure, but I don't believe that fear by the elites has anything to do with it. Record company executives are always looking for a way to make a buck, and controversy is good for record sales. There has been popular protest music in every decade. This wikipedia article is incomplete but provides a lot of examples. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protest_songs_in_the_United_States

OldMetalHead comments on Aug 2, 2019:
When applied to campaign strategy, yes. As a tool to convince the voting public, most certainly not.

OldMetalHead comments on Aug 1, 2019:
All well and good to be sensitive to other's beliefs/feelings. However, once ones beliefs infringe on the rights of others and affect body autonomy we have to draw the line. In my experience, believers have a difficult time not crossing that line at the behest of their churches teachings. I'm sure there are exceptions.

OldMetalHead comments on Jul 29, 2019:
I voted for own, but I'm a bit on the fence since I can no longer deduct my mortgage interest. If it's possible to live in the same place longer term and pay that sucker off before retirement, then it's probably still worth it, but it's a pretty volatile investment in the short term.
How many atheists do you know and consider them to be a "good" friend?
OldMetalHead comments on Jul 29, 2019:
None that have come out to me. I think my son is one and possibly my brother-in-law. My wife is irreligious but believes in all sorts of woo. I joined some atheist groups on Facebook and through that found this.
How did you deal with the empty nest syndrome?
OldMetalHead comments on Jul 28, 2019:
You've done a great job raising them to be independent. You deserve to focus more on yourself now. I'm sure there are things you've wanted to do or learn, and now maybe you have more time and resources.

When religion conflicts with science it holds no credibility.
OldMetalHead comments on Jul 28, 2019:
It's easy for religion and science to coexist in the minds of a lot of believers because they are so good at ignoring the problematic or contradictory parts of their holy book already.
I see stuff like this all the time on social media.

Mad at god or don't believe?

Is this a troll? I ask this because "you're just mad at god" is a go-to attack on atheists by theists.

My relatives, when they find out I'm an atheist:. "Do you worship the devil?
OldMetalHead comments on Jul 24, 2019:
My favorite one is "You're just angry at god!" I'm like, "Why should I be angry at your imaginary friend?" "Did he bang my wife behind my back or something?" "Oh, wait, that was Joseph!" ;-)

OldMetalHead comments on Jul 23, 2019:
I have PSVue, which is Sony's streaming service. I've also tried SlingTV. Both are pretty good and about $50 a month without premium channels which you can pay extra for. So, including my Netflix, which I get a discount on, I'm spending about $60 a month.

I feel guilty.
OldMetalHead comments on Jul 23, 2019:
Props to you for not just continuing to take them to church as you got increasingly more disillusioned. I think you took the braver path. Do your kids still believe in Santa? If not, I would compare your belief in god to how they used to believe in Santa. The Santa stories are used to make kids behave. Belief in god is used to control adults.
Why I left christianity video

I agree with what he says about christianity, which I consider common sense. Could he more condescending about Eastern religion? He mentions Hinduism specifically and later says Eastern religion isn't used to control people.

I have a question for the people that are 100% certain that no gods exist. How are you THAT certain?
OldMetalHead comments on Jul 22, 2019:
If irrefutable proof of the god of the bible, Hindu gods, etc. were ever presented, I would change my stance and admit existence. The burden of proof is on the believers however. If said god were to exist, it is a narcissistic megalomaniac and in no way deserves the worship of humanity.

I love what they're doing fighting for women's rights and for the removal of religious monuments. I would consider joining, but I can't get past the stupid "hail Satan" chanting.

What do you think the world be like with out religion?
OldMetalHead comments on Jul 19, 2019:
Imagine a world where the majority uses birth control until they have the means to care for their children and where the majority of children are wanted. Imagine a world where equality between the sexes and races is the norm and where oppression gets called out instead of justified away.
Join my group and let's talk beer? Beer and craft brewing [agnostic.com]
OldMetalHead comments on Jul 19, 2019:
What is your favorite beer / brewery / style? Among my current favorites are big stouts like Evil Twin's Even More Jesus line and New England IPA's like Sloop Juice Bomb. I'm also a fan of Belgian Trappists.
Is the Opus X over rated? I say yes. It is good but it is over hyped.
OldMetalHead comments on Jul 19, 2019:
Best (smoothest) Fuente I've ever had, but of course they're over hyped due to scarcity. Cubans are generally over hyped in the US also due to the trade embargo. It doesn't mean there aren't some excellent Cubans, there are. But, would they have the same mystique if they were as easy to get as a Dominican?
Are you superstitious?
OldMetalHead comments on Jul 19, 2019:
My wife is quite superstitions ( believes in luck, feng shui, etc.) because of her upbringing. I try to do everything I can to to debunk this kind of thinking. I have stopped saying "bless you" when someone sneezes. I have gotten called out on it because people see it as impolite, but I just can't bring myself to do it anymore.

Trump impeachment bid crushed in the Democrat Controlled House of Representatives We Democrats ...
OldMetalHead comments on Jul 18, 2019:
Question for you. Would you find a potential president Pence an improvement over Trump? I, myself would not. I think he's much more dangerous. If your thought is that he would be caught up in the impeachment of Trump, you're deluding yourself. Even if Trump were impeached, the likelihood of removal from office with a Republican majority in the Senate is minimal. The House is currently filling the role of opposing Trump's agenda. I wish they would ramp those efforts up until the 2020 election. They should especially work on things that have bipartisan support, like restoring Net Neutrality.

That whole album is awesome. I especially love Ride On, which I think is Bon Scott's only ballad.
Posted this on my Facebook page and my Christian friends are up in arms.
OldMetalHead comments on Jul 18, 2019:
One of the main reasons I don't want Trump to be impeached is the possibility of a president Pence.

OldMetalHead comments on Jul 18, 2019:
As a Death Metal fan, I find understanding the vocals often isn't that important as they become just another instrument in the song. Check this song out from Finland though. It's hauntingly beautiful. http://kauniskuolematon.bandcamp.com/track/aseista-riisuttu
I am not an atheist.
OldMetalHead comments on Jul 18, 2019:
I am a de-facto atheist in the Dawkins scale. Where would you say you fit? Richard Dawkins’ Belief Scale Scoring Rubric Strong Theist: I do not question the existence of God, I KNOW he exists. De-facto Theist: I cannot know for certain but I strongly believe in God and I live my life on the assumption that he is there. Weak Theist: I am very uncertain, but I am inclined to believe in God. Pure Agnostic: God’s existence and non-existence are exactly equiprobable. Weak Atheist: I do not know whether God exists but I’m inclined to be skeptical. De-facto Atheist: I cannot know for certain but I think God is very improbable and I live my life under the assumption that he is not there. Strong Atheist: I am 100% sure that there is no God.
