    I have two main hobbies: I love music and love to read. I also like art galleries, drama, and playing with my iPod. Of course, theology and philosophy are big ones, since I'm on here.
  • More About Me
    I quit Christianity on November 22, sometime in the afternoon, when I was 14 years old. I had been having guiltily suppressed doubts for a couple years, but then I read a chapter of the missionary Jack Popjes' book A Kick in the Pants, in which he said Jesus had been sent to save the world
    mainly for God's glory, to make people want to worship him. (If you read
    the Old Testament, particularly Exodus and Job, it gets into God glorifying
    himself quite a bit.) Well, a seasoned Christian like Popjes saying that
    broke my faith in the point of Christianity. Why should I trust Jesus if
    salvation is really about polishing God's pedestal? If you want to read
    about other things that are wrong with it, like the Bible's sexist double
    standards and winking at rapists, comment on my profile. Best wishes to all other infidels. 

    P.S. I should probably clarify that I am not a Satanist. I know Satanists like the number 666, but I think they misuse it. To me, it is a symbol of secularism, of my non-Xian values, because Xians consider that number to be evil. So I like it. I hate killing, I don't want to go to hell, and I enjoy being happy. 

    #metoo - next on the chopping block

    How do you not see that behavior like end's drives wedges between people? It only creates distrust and resentment between men and women, and that is dangerous. That phrase "If you can't handle me at my worst, you don't deserve me at my best" only signals immaturity. I am an adult. I will not act like a child because others have, and I will not pretend that juvenile behavior is something to be proud of.

    Anger is one thing, bitterness is unhealthy. It creates the kind of dwelling on one's feelings and insulting an entire group for traits they didn't choose that we see here. Please don't pretend that a person's experiences make that behavior okay. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I have not had good experiences with the attention I got from men. One I turned down proceeded to begin posting on Facebook that all women are shallow and only want jerks instead of nice guys like he is (ha). I can only presume that he didn't care if his other female friends and I saw it. Another, whom I thought was a friend, tried to trap me into sending him crass photos. A third made an extremely inappropriate and borderline threatening comment toward me at work in front of two other co-workers, after I turned him down as well. A man on the street called me beautiful, and when I didn't respond because I wasn't sure he was talking to me, called me a bitch. And you know what? Those people do not represent men. They are individuals. The great majority of the men I've met are decent human beings who would never do a nasty thing like any of the above to someone. The people who behaved like that have a serious attitude problem, may even be emotionally stunted so that they don't care about other people. Entitlement is not a male flaw. It is a human flaw, because people are imperfect and some of them are not nice people. When I had those experiences, I chose to understand that the issue was with them, not men in general, because I can see that there are many, many good men. How your experiences affect you is your choice. If you begin negatively stereotyping an entire group and seeing them as unpleasant, untrustworthy people, consider that the problem lies with you.

    I'm not interested in talking about what men are "like." There's an enormous range of men, just like women. Not all of them are the sexist types claiming their views are "logic" and "anti-feminism," or tough blue-collars, or "cucks." I'm interested in individuals and sub-groups.

    No, end3, my thoughts aren't "nice." They're true. Since you continue repeating the same point despite your beliefs having been refuted, it's obvious you want to believe that women are the way you claim they are, and don't care about the evidence in front of you, only your feelings. Therefore, there's nothing more we can say to you.

    Shitty church music

    I remember the saccharine Matt Redman-type stuff we had to sing. It did get uncomfortable, the over the top syrupiness and vaguely sexual lyrics. Even though we were supposed to "enjoy" worshipping god this was not encouraged in practice. Dancing to upbeat songs was frowned upon. I got the feeling we could never get it right, if we were too serious we weren't in touch with god but having fun was irreverent.

    I'd like to know what kind of women you've met. You seem to see women almost as a separate species from men. Yes, there are differences on average, but those are average differences in physical and mental function. They don't have anything to do with integrity. At the end of the day, we all are people, and all of us want to be seen as such, not as specimens to be analyzed. This is a little off-topic, but you've talked about your dating life before and feeling frustrated with women you have gone out with. Try taking off the gender lens and seeing women not as a collection of stereotypes, but as humans with an enormous range of personalities, traits and values. Believe me: your attitude will become evident sooner or later to everyone you find yourself interested in. They will not like that you look down on them - yes, you really do, I can see it in your posts - and view them through the microscope of your preconceptions. When you begin to see the great majority of people in a negative light, it helps to ask yourself if they are really the problem, or if it's the ideas you have about them.

    Some people believe that having compassion for abuse victims means automatically believing all women who claim to have been abused, and that not believing some, or that some will take advantage of society's compassion, amounts to dismissing victims or downplaying the seriousness of sexual assault. The fact is, if there is a way to be horrible, people will find it. That means using victims and the issue of sexual abuse to their own ends, making real victims less likely to be taken seriously, and directly harming someone else. The individuals who would do this include women, because women are people too. People who lie about abuse have no conscience and this crime should be taken as seriously as abuse itself. Compassion for victims and intolerance of liars are entirely different, but having the first actually increases the second.

    Why be good if there is no God

    I take Christians' claims that they would be evil without god with many grains of salt. They tend to have this persistent self-abasing belief because the bible tells them so. They may claim it, but people say things without understanding what they really would do because they have never thought outside what the bible says. That claim probably shows a lack of self-knowledge.
  10. How do you know that the child was taken because of spanking or poverty? You don't. You're assuming. Again, we do not know the reason because we have not been told. I don't know either, but when the parents were told to do something by people whose job it is to make sure children's basic needs are cared for properly, and did not do it, it's a safe bet that SS had a good reason for removing the child. I didn't say other parents decide what mistreatment means. I meant they care about kids, having kids themselves, and would rather the child was taken from the parents than, say, beaten severely, or underfed, or not clothed properly. (Again, I don't know what the reason was. I'm just using examples.) You saw that government services took a child from his or her parents, reacted angrily at the idea of government overreach, and now will not listen to anyone because your mind is blocked by a wall that has the word GOVERNMENT on it in big letters.
  11. What happens if parents disagree with you, because they are parents? Because they know how to care for their kids and don't want to see children abused or neglected? The problem with the identity card is that your opinion loses its status when someone else with your identity disagrees with you, which is bound to happen. With the vague information in this article, it's impossible to judge what happened except that social services instructed them in what to do and took the child when they did not comply. It is SS's job to make sure kids are looked out for. We can guess it was in the child's best interest.

    How you can be a better ally to white people.

    I was referring to the commands directed at white people in articles like the ones that were posted. I'm not claiming to be persecuted on the level that black people used to be. That doesn't make the current behavior okay. In case it isn't clear yet, the OP is criticizing the attitude in those articles.
  13. CB can still have valid points without kids.

    How you can be a better ally to white people.

    The historical treatment of black Americans doesn't excuse the current treatment of white Americans.

    How you can be a better ally to white people.

    What exactly in the post is bigoted? The point is that it would be correctly considered disgusting if it were aimed at black people, but that this sort of thing is directed at white people, by some black people. Condescending racism - yes, racism - is socially acceptable if the targets are Caucasian. Yet some, instead of considering the reality of what it's saying, would rather have a knee-jerk reaction and dismiss it as anti-black.
