Where were all you anti-religious bigots yesterday?

LadyJane was sleeping.

unsmoked was all alone here with the Owl Guy posting about how they were braver or different than me.

What was so different yesterday, and why does today feel like we snapped back into a mundane winter day?

Weird, huh?

It’s like there is a “spirit” in our midst after all.

Only a skeptic dipshit would call the secularization of the most significant and most holy day in human history an “evolution”.

Welcome not back, Jan.

You’re a moron.

You seem to have the same affliction as Trump - describing yourself as you denigrate others.

I almost forgot ...

The two Canadian women wanted to start a roast, but it fizzled out as soon as they popped the cork.

I meant to tell them that Americans really don’t pay much attention to anything happening in Canada, especially in that silly province that is, I guess, another France. I went there a couple of times. The first time, about thirty years ago, I saw a big parade and signs everywhere in celebration of its separation from Canada, which of course never happened. The second time, about four years ago, I saw another parade, at night in record breaking 50 degrees below zero temperature. So I guess Canadians like parades, and starting things that don’t get finished, and acting European in North America, and playing outside when it’s freezing.

It says a lot about Canada that my most memorable experience was walking in Quebec during a festival and hearing the deafening noise of thousands of people’s feet crunching the frozen snow. It was the single experience I had that impressed me.

As you know, what I can’t appreciate is your malicious attitude towards God.

You can’t have malice for something that you’re sure is made up. And here’s the thing, if I’m right, you’re wasting your time on a brainwasher’s credo that above all is 100% irrelevant when it comes to being a good person. Honest question: Have you ever entertained the idea - I mean recently - that you’re wrong? Or is doubt a sin?

For Mario, I suspect it would be a sin to think that nature created him.  Let heaven and nature sing?  Never!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLT9dSt8cwg

First post of 2020 …

Our Forum will be, of course, still dedicated to languishing and opinionating. Its tearless leader, Nhoj, has a “total button” that will not be pushed because he has an idea that there is a “frontier” of understanding reality that is akin to having no understanding of reality at all, and no understanding to the degree that he will never even use the word “reality”. As he puts it, “Going trioon has deflated many conventional terms for me.”—Read: “I only care about my own thoughts today, not the thoughts of other human beings throughout human history. Hey, honey, can you get me another Heineken? I’m in the basement.”

Yes, a big wide door will remain open in our Forum to allow the crowds of opinionated thinkers to enter this vast and empty “frontier”.

But I have an idea about a “frontier” of understanding reality, too:

My idea is that the “reality” of our limited physical presence in the physical universe is not our only presence, for we have been gifted with occupying the singular place at the pinnacle of this “reality”, where we stand as the only “reality” that knows and loves like God, the true “reality” necessary for “reality” to exist in the first place.

The “frontier” before me extends infinitely inward and eternally outward. I do not count milliseconds of thought, but appreciate thought itself. I do not remake myself into a system of ideas, but rejoice in the divine personality I have always been.

Anyway …

It is a brand new year, never before seen since the beginning of time. This is the “reality” that should move us into a “frontier” of new and wonderful experiences and accomplishments.

Only the best of us will spend this new year becoming better. Many of us will become worse. And many still will not become either.

I know who I will become, because I “understand” how important it is that I do.

Looks like the forum has found a new batch of regulars. Really great guys, too.

To the idiot in New Orleans who thinks billions of people in Islam are all dangerous and bad human beings—

Try to imagine billions of people who are members of a group that think and act like you do.

To those most vulnerable to the coercive tactics of religion - ”  (Richard Dawkins new book)

https://www.amazon.com/Outgrowing-God-Beginners-Richard-Dawkins/dp/1984853910/ref=pd_sbs_14_1/133-6349275-3109020?

Should we believe in God? In this brisk introduction to modern atheism, one of the world’s greatest science writers tells us why we shouldn’t.

Richard Dawkins was fifteen when he stopped believing in God.

Deeply impressed by the beauty and complexity of living things, he’d felt certain they must have had a designer. Learning about evolution changed his mind. Now one of the world’s best and bestselling science communicators, Dawkins has given readers, young and old, the same opportunity to rethink the big questions.

In twelve fiercely funny, mind-expanding chapters, Dawkins explains how the natural world arose without a designer—the improbability and beauty of the “bottom-up programming” that engineers an embryo or a flock of starlings—and challenges head-on some of the most basic assumptions made by the world’s religions: Do you believe in God? Which one? Is the Bible a “Good Book”? Is adhering to a religion necessary, or even likely, to make people good to one another? Dissecting everything from Abraham’s abuse of Isaac to the construction of a snowflake, Outgrowing God is a concise, provocative guide to thinking for yourself.

Try to imagine billions of people who are members of a group that are not trapped in superstitious fictions.

Hello, everyone.

I’m gonna write a brief post because I see some of you dolts, led by that bastion of intellect Skippy, have decided to ridicule God again for not taking his omnipotent power and making life here on Earth a heavenly paradise without suffering or death.

Of course, you dolts can’t really understand the theological and philosophical stupidity in this, so you simply supported your utter ignorance with a silly image of a guy jerking himself off and God watching him repugnantly … as if you guys would look at yourselves in the mirror jerking off and say, “Hey, I look pretty cool right now.”

That’s all I’ve got to say. I’ve told you before, and many times, that it is our time to shine until we reap the rewards of conquering our weaknesses with character and enduring our sufferings with grace. And God is invisible for this reason most of all, because he wants us to be with him as his free children, not forced to obey or weakened by an easy life.

But the depth of what I have told you about yourselves and about God has been too deep for most of you, especially the few dipshits on Skippy’s thread. No, the only depth you have is how deeply you’ve dug yourselves in to being anti-religious bigots, so-called “atheists” who have ostracized yourselves from your family and friends out of delusions about your intelligence.

Don’t worry, God isn’t repugnantly watching you jerk off.

The Holy Spirit flees real fast when a human being grabs his shit and acts like a lower primate.

And the Holy Spirit flees when it sees a self-righteous fool crowing about his own knowledge and goodness and chuminess with God.

Luke 18:9-14 -  Parable of the Pharisee and Tax Collector

Then Jesus told this story to some who had great confidence in their own righteousness and scorned everyone else:  “Two men went to the Temple to pray. One was a Pharisee, and the other was a despised tax collector.  The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed this prayer: ‘I thank you, God, that I am not like other people—cheaters, sinners, adulterers. I’m certainly not like that tax collector!  I fast twice a week, and I give you a tenth of my income.’

“But the tax collector stood at a distance and dared not even lift his eyes to heaven as he prayed. Instead, he beat his chest in sorrow, saying, ‘O God, be merciful to me, for I am a sinner.’  I tell you, this sinner, not the Pharisee, returned home justified before God. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”
