  • More About Me
    I grew up Christian. I was a fundamentalist Bible thumper for over thirty years. At the peak of my narrow mindedness I was on par with Pat Robertson, who I once admired. In the last few years I mellowed. I became a liberal Christian. I realized the Bible was just a man made mess. And finally I gave up Christianity because I realized it's harmful and leads to bad behavior - some of which I participated in.

    Some people say that atheists do not have enough evidence to conclude that there are no gods. Interesting. I wish I could ask these people if they are unwilling to declare comic book characters to be fictional. What if there really is a Superman who lives in secret? What if there really is a Wonder Woman and we just don't know about her because she is in her invisible plane? I'm willing to take the plunge and say that we know beyond a reasonable doubt that comic book characters are fiction. We have far more evidence that God is fiction.

    Joseph Campbell:
    "What gods are there, what gods have there ever been, that were not from man's imagination?"

    And here are hundreds of arguments that God exists.

    Are any of them compelling? Hmmm . . . don't think so.

  1. Garage Floor Repair Or Replacement? HELP!

    Troy McLure came out with a video that might help. IIRC it's called "The Half Assed Approch to Foundation Repair". Seriously, look for a good contractor and pay him to do the job right. Looks like you have the early stages of sinkhole formation.
  2. Nobody is proposing that rifles should be sent to rifle prison where they will be forced to endure solitary confinement. We are not blaming an inanimate object. Notice that insane people who are not holding guns do not shoot anybody? A gun is a tool of power. Some people can handle the responsibility while others cannot. Not blaming the tool but rather trying to keep it out of the wrong hands.
  3. Once you go belt fed you will never go back.
  4. Joke: If a group of birds is called a flock and a group of cattle is called a heard what do you call 35 historically established, first-century, Palestinian men who were all named Jesus? (A myth of Jesus)
  5. Okay. Imagine that the guy living next to you is trying to build an atomic bomb. And he thinks he should be able to do it "NRA style" which means without any government regulation. There might be a few radiation leaks that will make your property unlivable for the next 10,000 years and a few of the people you love might die but that is a small price to pay for freedom. Let's not forget the basic rights of the victims are being trampled upon. The Constitution is not a suicide pact. The people who wrote it believed that white men have the right to own black people. Times have changed. The constant stream of shootings indicate that more regulation will result in the greater good.
  6. Scared of acid attacks

    Wow, I didn't believe you at first so I googled and you are right. It is a huge problem. I had no idea. That is horrible. I'm so sorry you are facing this. For advise I think you should approach dating slowly. Get to know people well before you go out with them. Ideally you should look for a partner who has an ex-girlfriend who was never harmed. Domestic abuse can take many forms but if a guy can date several girls and then part ways with them on good terms without harm then he probably isn't an abuser. It won't be easy to find out because people usually don't want to talk about their exs. This is going to be tough.
  7. Fair enough Don't talk that way about duderonomy.
  8. Yeah, I'm too lazy to type out the name. Mag. is the best I will do. You know, the long black box you shove in the lower receiver when the gun stops going "bang bang". "finally someone who gets it" I thought I mentioned black powder muskets last week.
  9. True & False

    While we are on the topic of God's love I have something else to say. If we were created by an all-powerful, all-knowing designer who carefully and intentionally: -gave us bad breath -made our persperation stink -built a sewage factory inside each of our bodies Then that creator hates us. That is something you do to people you hate. You don't curse people you love. And why the hell do I have to spend a full third of my life unconscious? Perfect design this is not!
  10. Skip, why do you keep posting these memes with the false narrative? As I have mentioned several times now it is the clip size, not the color of the rifle that matters.
  11. Fear

    Welcome Learnagain. I experienced that. Basically I told myself it was an emotional reaction to coincidences and I pushed through my fear. Eventually the feelings went away. Keep up the good work!
  12. More Gun Violence: Let’s Look Beyond Politics

    I can only think of three legitimate motivations for those who oppose gun control. 1. You want to defend your home from criminal invaders. This goes double if you have a family but you should be able to protect yourself even if you live alone. 2. You want to hunt. 3. You love shooting guns. For reason 1 you don't need a 30 round clip. A pump action shotgun would be a fine home defense weapon. It gets the job done. Thieves don't arrive in platoon strength. For reason 2 a 30 round clip is unsportsmanlike. You only need a 30 round clip for reason 3 and your wants should stop when too many people are being deprived of their right to live. You can still exercise your right to bear arms using less capable weapons. There are fine weapons that solve home security or hunting needs while at the same time being less suitable for spree murder.
  13. billy graham called home

    He really knew how to make money off of it. Frank Graham is worth hundreds of millions today. Not bad for "charity" work.
  14. More Gun Violence: Let’s Look Beyond Politics

    Ron Paul used a deceptive title. It's not beyond politics if all he does is repeat his political agenda. Is he starting to think that drugs cause shootings? A big problem is that we allow private sales to be completely blind. Once a gun is sold privately it is off the grid. That needs to stop. Force people to keep a paper trail. Force them to get background checks for all sales, even private. This should be standard. One agenda is to reduce the number of kids being murdered. The two agendas are not equal.
  15. I understand the AA-12 is available with a chrome finish. I still wouldn't want to see a madman turn one loose in a shopping mall. I recall that Saddam Hussein had custom AKs made in gold. Still wouldn't want to see kids murdered with one. The M-14 use to have a natural wood stock and blue or grey finish. Perhaps now they are painted "tactical". Wouldn't want to see one used to murder cops. It ain't the color.
