Hello to my fellow atheists and free thinkers. I've been out of the atheist closet for a couple of decades now, having wasted several decades searching the various religious texts and sects trying to make sense of life. My outlook is science based with the provision that science is still in its infancy and there is so much more we have to learn, so I don't dismiss the unknown any more than I accept that there are things that are unknowable, we just haven't reached that level of understanding yet.

Surfpirate comments on Mar 17, 2020:
People often turn to the idea of an all powerful imaginary being when they find themselves in a bad situation that they feel powerless to deal with. This is particularly so when the individual is immature and is still seeking a solution from a parental figure, an all powerful sky daddy is just the thing. Naturally, there is no intervention or salvation in the real world because the god is an imaginary friend but it can give a person a sense of false security that may help them through a rough period. As we mature we do not need these imaginary friends and so they tend to be put away, much like a child learns to give up the ratty old security blanket that they have been dragging around for years but give up when it is time to go to elementary school.

It all depends upon whether or not religion can develop an app to capture disillusioned young people. The older population that is the base for most religions will be hard hit by this plague but the young should get through it largely unscathed physically but crippled financially - in desperate times, people take desperate measure and will believe in almost anything that gives them solace.

Religious programming typically begins in early childhood, both the overt and the subliminal programming, it takes time to undo a lot of that damaging programming. You may find yourself felling anger and feelings of betrayal from love ones who lead you down this garden path with the best of intentions. I gave up imaginary friends for good when I was 13 years old, it still took a lot of undoing and unlearning but be patient with yourself and give it time. You are already way ahead of the curve compared to most people because you are questioning instead of blinding accepting like the Sheeple of the world.

What are your personal pet peeves about religous people?
Surfpirate comments on Mar 15, 2020:
So many choices that it is hard to pick just one. Ignorance and Arrogance seem to always go hand in hand with religitards, so many uninformed opinions that they are so certain about because 'it's in the bible'. Hypocrisy is another favourite, they just love to do as I say but not as I do. Illiteracy, this is an assumption on my part because they don't seem to know their holy books very well and I would have to attribute this to illiteracy but stupidity may also be a factor. Why won't they just grow the fuck up? Who needs a security blanket after you are 3 years old? Apparently a lot of people do, that's what their imaginary friend is, a security blanket. The cover ups that go with all religion, from sexual abuse, mental abuse, physical abuse and pedophilia. That's my short list.

We were out most of the day, taking care of some errands and picking up a few supplies. We drove past Costco this morning as it was opening and there were lines going down either side of the building 100 people long, all standing in the rain, holding onto their carts, waiting for the doors to open. We popped into Costco after doing the rest of our errands and the volume was pretty normal so we grabbed a few things we needed and headed for home. I think we will be staying home for the next few days at least and we will be canceling a party we had planned for a bunch of friends.

(not a very high bar to pass but still an improvement would be nice) I am pretty independent and freedom loving by nature and I would hope that this superior being would be accepting of freedom and love and kindness, if not I don't know what I could do to resist such a creature but something tells me I would die trying.

Since the question is posed in such a way that facts are not the priority and opinion is, then I would have to say that it just depends.

Most people go to school but not all of them get an education, just because you show up doesn't mean you contribute or learn how to think. It doesn't help matters that some governments have focused more on programming for obedience and not on teaching logical thought.

So I've been thinking about creating this imaginary friend I like to call BOB. He's really powerful but he is much too cool to use that power to help me out in the real world, or help anybody else out for that matter but like I said, BOB is REALLY COOL! BOB is so COOL even though he knows everything before it even happens (did I mention that BOB created the Universe too?) he feels that it would be very uncool to get in the way of bad things that are going to happen so he just lets people get sick, injured and killed in horrible ways, apparently it's a thing with BOB. Now please understand that while my imaginary friend BOB is SUPER UBER COOL, he does have some hangups about masturbation, sex out of wedlock, non-straight sex and SHRIMP - Holy Mother of BOB, he just freaks out about shrimp, or at least he used to before we figured out refrigeration on our own (BOB not wanting to intervene in our lives of course, except about a bunch of other things). So please understand that if you don't want to believe in my imaginary friend BOB then that is perfectly cool but I may have to kill you and your family and friends and your livestock etc. etc. because, well, you know, BOB told me to do it. I know you will appreciate that I am just expressing my cultural beliefs so you won't mind being burned at the stake because BOB just loves the smell rising up from a burnt offering.

Most people aren't very clever and even those who are have a deeply fearful monkey brain buried deep down inside them that is part of our primal survival instinct - the idea of an all powerful being that can be appeased, bribed and flattered is therefore quite appealing to human beings. The all powerful being explains phenomena in nature that we do not have a deeper understanding of and it gives comfort when the inevitable hardships and death that are inherent in our lives become difficult to bear. I think of it as a security blanket that we create to provide comfort and the religion that springs from it is just the natural outcome of people using that need for comfort to extort power from others.

Isn't the whole point of religion to pretend that we know what will happen after we die and if we behave in this life then things will be better in the next life? It's a control system based on a delusion developed to address our irrational fear of death.

Surfpirate comments on Feb 13, 2020:
All religions are based upon fear and fear of death in particular. We are hardwired to survive and that is a challenge for intelligent species as it is clear that we will ultimately die, it's inescapable but we can manufacture a delusion that we will somehow carry on after our body dies. Religion is just a means of profiting from that delusion.

Psychological studies have shown that most psychopaths exhibit higher than average IQs but this does not mean that people with high IQs are necessarily psychopaths. In my personal experience I have found the connection between wealth and intelligence to be a minor one, rich people aren't necessarily smarter, often the opposite is the case. The one common denominator that I have found among rich people is the overwhelming desire to amass wealth, no matter the cost to their health, the family and their social interactions. Greed is the key to riches, often I have found that this is based on some sort of psychological trauma in the person that drives them to amass wealth at the expense of everything else in their lives.

Miserable, bitter, old farts with religion in their hearts because they are afraid of the supposed hereafter because of the miserable, bitter lives they have lived are going to vote Trump because he appeals to their misery and bitterness, the young people are where the votes are but the DNC is either too stupid or too corrupt to realize it.

At a claimed price of $4000 this appears reasonable.

Nader Khalili came up with similar technologies back in the 1970's, including firing adobe structures to the point of being ceramic structures. An interesting process and story, his kids now run the institute. https://www.calearth.org/intro-superadobe

Boeing seems to be having a very hard time getting things right lately.
What's important to having a long relationship!
Surfpirate comments on Feb 11, 2020:
That's dead brilliant! :D
Incredibly, it seems to be so... There are Atheists who fear hell! [patheos.com]
Surfpirate comments on Feb 11, 2020:
I couldn't read the article because of their adblocker requirements but I can imagine that most people have some sort of boogieman that they fear. Since many atheists were programmed at an early age to believe in a boogieman called Satan then it stands to reason that there could still be an irrational fear, much along the same lines as werewolves have for some people in spite of the fact that there is no evidence that werewolves exist.

This is how stupidity turns deadly.
I discovered Chanterelle mushrooms while hiking last year. I wonder what they taste like?
Surfpirate comments on Feb 10, 2020:
Just make sure you don't pick the Jack o Lantern look alikes but Chantrelles are amazing fare.
WT...... He shows up in the weirdest places! Lol

Wow! He really is everywhere, now I'm a believer.
I have 4th stage prostate cancer so I will dies soon.

I gather when the time comes and if I have enough time to think about it, I'll be fairly stoic but piss and moan some as well because I rather enjoy my company and believe that I shall miss it. Fair winds and calm seas to thee on your journey.
Anyone else find that there are very few agnostics where you live?
Surfpirate comments on Feb 10, 2020:
I never use the term Agnostic to describe myself, Atheist or Anti-theist or both will work but why the hesitation? We all outgrew the Easter Bunny but we still eat chocolate from time to time, ditto with the angry, old man in the sky belief which is even more silly and childish. The difference is that there are a lot of people walking around that have not managed to outgrow the angry, old man in the sky belief. I'm in Canada so we tend to look at people who take that religion stuff too serious as somewhat demented, delusional or psychotic.
WHY BERNIE WILL BE A GUARANTEED FAILURE?
Surfpirate comments on Feb 10, 2020:
The citizens of most Western Democracy (other than the USofA) would consider Bernie Sanders to be somewhere right of center on their political landscapes. Bernie is a Radical but only if you are an American and living in the corrupt corporate oligarchy that the US calls a democracy.
EASY Choice to make.....
Surfpirate comments on Feb 10, 2020:
It makes sense, there is a conspiracy theory going around that Trump is behind the Coronavirus, had it released in China as part of the US/China Trade War, it is certainly decimating the Chinese economy.
Attorney General Warns of 'Militant Secular Effort' to Drive Out Religion
Surfpirate comments on Feb 9, 2020:
We believe in the separation of church and state? So long as they act in accordance with each other, effectively becoming extensions of each other? That kind of separation? What an asshat.
A convoluted argument hard to grasp for agnostics, but if it were to succeed...? [sojo.net]
Surfpirate comments on Feb 9, 2020:
I think it was Stephen Hawking who predicted that the end of the human species will be as a direct result of our greed and stupidity which will lead to the destruction of our eco-system. This is essentially what religion is all about so the band will continue to play on so long as religitards are calling the tune.
Good question

Wondering if anyone else accepts the Absurd (pursuing meaning in a meaningless world)?
Surfpirate comments on Feb 8, 2020:
To treat life as anything but absurd would be absurd but of course that would make you absurd either way. I just like to wake up and find myself pleasantly surprised that I am still here for another day of absurdity and I work hard at it, no particular reason, just something I like to do.
