• What's wrong with watching porn?

    In a nutshell, it is just another form of societal poison, like drinking alcohol. There is a higher potential risk of harm from watching. It can be addictive, it desensitizes you in terms of what is needed for arousal, it distorts the reality of what real women are like and it devalues sex from intimate to just an activity for the sake of pleasure. show more

  • Do you offer flowers to God?

    While that sounds nice, it's like my children taking my money and giving back to me as a gift, it's cute but it was already mine.

  • I am a skeptic/cynic but am struggling to be happy. Lately the issue of Karma not being real has left me bitter. How do I cope?

    Instead of letting your life drift where the currents take it, try taking control of your life and take the course you want.

  • Do you think we can ever just love one an another as human beings instead of fighting about religion and spirituality? Can we please try to?

    You are asking for humans to give up the most important thing that makes us human, our emotions. Our emotions are the source of irrationality, hence delusions about reality that we fight over because nobody realizes they are the irrational ones stuck in delusion and believe we are fighting for the true reality. We fight about religions, politics,... show more
    You are asking for humans to give up the most important thing that makes us human, our emotions. Our emotions are the source of irrationality, hence delusions about reality that we fight over because nobody realizes they are the irrational ones stuck in delusion and believe we are fighting for the true reality. We fight about religions, politics, education, the real color of blue, etc. Without our emotions, we would all be rational about the true nature of reality. Your question is as rational as asking people with bad breathe to quite breathing, it's not going to happen because breathing is a requirement. I can say that once you realize we are dealing with irrationality and that you could potentially be irrational yourself and not know it, it makes a person more understanding and more forgiving of others who defy our reasoning.

  • Without God, there is no objective morality?

    With a God there is no objective morality. Because morality is about decision making concerning the question of harm to yourself and others by your thoughts and actions, even if an Intelligent Being tells you something is moral, you still need to "decide" for yourself if that is true.

    With a God there is no objective morality. Because morality is about decision making concerning the question of harm to yourself and others by your thoughts and actions, even if an Intelligent Being tells you something is moral, you still need to "decide" for yourself if that is true. Because morality is based on "thinking", it will always be subjective to the reasoning of the individual, even if that individual is a God. Because nothing is perfect, morality will always be relative where if you only have two immoral choices, the one that causes the least harm wins as the moral decision. In the bible, when God asked Abraham to kill his son to prove his loyalty to this God, was that moral? Was it moral for Abraham to accept the challenge? What about the son who eventually learned his father planned to kill him for the sake of God? If you don't "think" about these type of questions, then you are not being a moral person.

  • Atheists, what do you think of this statement?

    This probably sounds great to a christian but he has many flaws in his reasons. First, if energy cannot be created, nor destroyed, it means energy has always existence, there was never a "nothing".

    This probably sounds great to a christian but he has many flaws in his reasons. First, if energy cannot be created, nor destroyed, it means energy has always existence, there was never a "nothing". Energy can only convert into other forms of energy and "all" of existence is one form or another of energy. We in fact know that life comes from nonlife. Life is simply when cells can replicate themselves, it is still chemistry. There is no randomness because the universe is purely cause and effect, meaning every cause has a specific effect. It would require the variable of intelligence to introduce a random factor where you don't know the choice/decision that will be made that can alter the outcome. There is no fine tuning, this is equivalent to believing a hole is fine tuned for the water it holds in a puddle, we are describing imperfect nature perfectly that christians mistake for fine tuning. The brain acts like an electromagnet and the mind is the magnetic field it produces. It is in the mind that we are aware/conscious and we are not always conscious. So consciousness absolutely comes from non conscious material (the brain) through a process of producing the magnetic field that is the mind. Lee Strobel uses very poor reasoning for a supposed ex-atheist, meaning I am suspicious of his motives. Is he really still an atheist and just preaching to christians what they want to hear to sell books, or was he always a christians but pretended to be an atheist because that would also sell books? Lee Strobel does not get us to any God much less the christian God with is reasoning, which is disappointing.

  • Who did better at school? Trump or Obama?

    Even if Obama did better, it is irrelevant to who can do better in the "practical" world.

    Even if Obama did better, it is irrelevant to who can do better in the "practical" world. Obama, as a liberal, had his eyes set on the world stage where he believed America needed to be taken down. Obama ran up our debt, caused increased race tensions, increased Party tensions, ruined our health care system, and attacked our economic growth with regulations. America's solution to this fiasco is Trump. Someone who doesn't care about the world stage but cares about America, which is what government leadership is supposed to do, care for "its citizens". Obama was a smooth talker with a huge ego, but his actions were not good for this country. Trump also has a huge ego, but his actions so far back up his pledge to make America great again even though he is not the smoothest of talkers.

    Unfortunately "qualified" people don't become politicians, meaning politically there is no one more qualified than Trump because he is not a politician. There are loads of people more qualified, but part of their wisdom is to stay out of the nasty, corrupt business of politics.

    The role of the military is security, not helping people. The Navy provides the most travel but you will be enjoying most of that on board a ship with not much of a social life. The Air Force is the best of travel and social life if you don't like slumming it.
