  1. What's odd about all of this is imagine the person is a mormon, for instance. We may all agree that the beliefs are weird, not even christian, total bullshit, etc.,etc. And be in complete agreement about how weird the mormon is, due to what they believe. Then look at a scenario where a corporation fires the mormon actor or actress for talking crazy on their own time, on social media. Let's say talking about things they believe in but the rest of think are absolute nonsense. That would be a hell of a discrimination case, wouldn't it? Firing someone for spe

  2. It seems to only be a problem when somebody on the right makes a comparison to Nazi Germany. Dog knows those comparisons have been rampant during the past four years. Disney does have a right to fire somebody for their views. It’s not something that should be done lightly. But when you’ve got a Twitter mob on the case - often including “journalists” - backbones are in short supply. Failure to stand up makes these firings / cancellations reach new heights of absurdity with every week that passes. I have to hope that this wave of hysteria will eventually pass, but I fear it won

  4. Remember when we used to think the Professor was some old man yelling at kids to get off his lawn? Then he posted those pics and we realized that no, we were wrong, he's actually a middle aged gen-x type bloke.

  5. Its not productive to lump all right wing supporters in with racists, conspiracy theorists, etc. Just as it isn't productive to lump all left wingers in the group of baby killing, communist and/or socialist, rioters etc. This is exactly why we are in the predicament we are in. We are constantly at each others throats. The only true anti Vaxer I've ever known was far left. The only vaccine I see the right not wanting to take is the covid vaccine. I'm hoping as more and more people are vaccinated without any adverse effects that those skeptical of it will become more comfortable and

  8. So she makes the point that in the past governments influenced people to hate certain citizens. And then paved the way for the military to come along and round them up, even commit genocide. The point being right now government officials and media ilk in the US are disparaging those who disagree with them and basically encouraging that they be censored, deleted from social media, and so on. And she concludes that this is similar to what started out in Nazi Germany. Solution? Fire her and prove her point in the process????

  10. The "right wing" is characterized today by Trumpism, not conservative or Republican values. There are still conservatives, I suppose, who have not followed the pied piper into crazy world. Trumpism is absolutely in cahoots with a base of racists, conspiracy nuts - and that's rather easy to verify if you have the inclination. That said, I am not a Democrat and I wish we still had a viable Republican Party unblemished by Proud Boys, QAnon and self described Nazis to temper some of the excesses of the current left wing.

  12. Hi Jean, I'm so sorry you're experiencing all of this! You are not alone. I know it's already been said, but I'd like to add Recovering from Religion, too. Religious trauma is a real thing and RfR would be a good resource for you. RfR can be reached at 1-844-368-2848 and you can talk with an in-real-time live person who's trained in working with people in your very situation.

  13. Undergoing general anesthesia several times in my life helped convince me of two things: firstly, since the right chemicals can completely shut off my consciousness, there is likely no consciousness possible without the physical brain, so no immortal soul, most likely. Secondly, being unconscious is nothing like sleep. It’s just... nothing. No dreams, no pain, no worries, no missing loved ones. And I believe that is how death will be also, as far as the mind is concerned. So while the fear of death is real, and the act of dying can be drawn out and possibly painful, being de

  14. One thing is sure: social media -and especially Twitter - have given everybody a platform, a public voice. Knowing when to say nothing is an important skill that is in very short supply these days.

  16. I feel like this is a situation where mainstream QM really should be questioned. The truth is probably much more simplistic than all of the complexities that people run off with. The complexities could well red flag the mainstream interpretations as veering off course from the simplest explanation.

  19. no, no retroactive causation. Yes just misinterpreted. To be correctly interpreted IMO they would have to interpret the experiment based upon another theory, contrary to mainstream quantum mechanics. Accordingly the understanding of it is not complicated based upon the understandings of it that I described above. There you will read that light is both a particle and a wave, both at the same time. Secondly there is a background field where the physical light waves are formed.

  21. Taken just as that comment, I agree with her. But what she interprets as "hate" feels like how Christians interpret things as persecution when they just don't get their way. She is an ardent supporter of Trump. And after the last 4 years of her ilk saying "fuck your feelings" and bulldozing their way over every sensibility, environmental law, and complete disregard for anyone who isn't white and rich, I'm over their whining.

  23. I had a dream when I was a kid that I was in the scary basement of our old house and a vampire was blocking the stairs... and I couldnt walk/run/move to get away. I also have one now and then that used to scare the shit out of me. If you ever watched the movie Entity (I think it was) this invisible evil entity pushes a woman up against the ceiling and holds her there ... I think the fear with this one has lessened as I consider that it's all on the demon to hold my fat ass up there. We all have scary dreams...even Christians do.

  24. Figured yall might wanna update on my son. He was positive for covid, but has already lost most of the symptoms except for his sense of smell. It hasn't returned yet. It took me a month to get smell and taste back so no big deal, just annoying. Everyone else was negative.

  25. I don't know what the significance is, but don't think I ever had a "demon" dream. It was always a real person trying to hurt me. Or dreaming of falling from a height, but always woke up before hitting the bottom. Haven't had one of those since leaving the faith.

  26. The thing is, suicide IS not the solution for post death anxiety. For one thing, the being/beings in charge if there any could just decide that some people live on after death and some do not. Or they could provoke amnesia. Or etc. So, sorry, but suicide is not a sure way to find out about for certain about post death situation for all people and maybe not even for you. Like I said, see no way out, yet, for sure, of uncertainty.

  27. Different people say different things. But when I was drowned or nearly drown surfing, I have no recollection whatsoever of any consciousness between the times that I was blacked out. I was pinned to the sea floor. I fought until a gave up fighting. I went into peaceful mode and let go. I remember that. Then everything went black. I woke up coughing out water at the surface. I don't know how long I was down there or when I floated up. The experience of time ceased. I gave up, then some time must have passed, then I was at the surface. And that's the closest thing I hav
