  1. Try https://www.seculartherapy.org/
  2. Our Easter tradition is to drink red wine and sing along to the movie "Jesus Christ Superstar" which doesn't make sense unless you realize how subversive that film really is. Favorite points include the Judas POV, especially at the very end. Plus the music is killer. Your mileage may vary.
  3. There was no change in my morals, which are essentially "don't be an asshole".
  4. Colin Koepernik, who was fired from the NFL for kneeling during the national anthem, protesting police violence against Blacks.
  5. I had a nightmare where a scary demon appeared. That was it, nothing else happened in the dream, but it scared me enough to wake me up. It's never happened before. Has anyone else had this happen?
  6. He did remind me of a schizophrenic that I once knew, though. Something about the belligerence and egotism. I also wondered if that painting company was just some poor guy he found on the internet, and he was impersonating him.
  7. You really are thoroughly immersed in a fantasy world, aren't you? Projecting your bullshit onto other people....
  8. "That should do it?" Do what? Prove that you hold some inexcusable stereotypes and prejudices towards atheists? Prove that I should listen to you because you have degrees? If we want to make this a degree arms-race I have more degrees than you do. But that is incredibly beside the point. As far as I can tell, you're full of yourself, trying to entertain yourself by "fucking with the atheists". Get a life.
  9. Theories are explanations that are based on facts. We test theories by applying new facts, based on observations as they become available. We do not "prove" theories; we test them, and that is the basis of science. If a theory is no longer supported by new observations/facts we refine the theory. Theory, like science, is ever-evolving to take into account the latest observations. A theory stands until it falls. "Proving" it is not the point nor the process.
  10. Don't worry, misogyny is really popular around here.
  11. It's often not that they are more inherently religious, it's that religion has been used to resist oppression historically, and churches are organizations through which that happens, like in the American civil rights movement. That makes it more culturally relevant.
  12. I think it's like tarot cards or anything else like that. There's no objective truth to it, but it can encourage you to reflect on the themes it brings up.
  13. Congratulations on escaping a toxic marriage!
