    After 26 years of processing and reinventing history to fit the old book and being treated as a total doormat for living the life of a Matthew Chapter 5 "Christian"... and not understanding why I was treated with such disrespect... especially by the church folks.. and still "staying" with the church for many years...I was able to rewrite my whole mental operating system after forming these three words in my mind "god is imaginary".... and.... all of a sudden.. the way folks behave made total sense to me for the first time in my life. Just like the earth travels around the sun.. and not the otherway around. An adult life of anxiety just simply disappeared... I still have my last bottle of prescription medication from three years ago. Zero anxiety... and so much happiness. I now have 35 or so years left to REALLY LIVE!!!

  1. It is always about them. Always.

    And....you have rejected it again.
  3. #metoo

    I gave it to you. You rejected it.

    Wow. You really don't get that I am on your side for this issue, do you? I have you telling me that I am being too easy, and another commenter telling me I am being too hard. So, I am guessing I am in the correct zone with my thoughts. Get real. Tell me how this gets fixed in the criminal justice system, or anywhere else, when it is just oner person's word against another? Answer: It doesn't. But, if 2, 3, 4, etc come forward then you have strong statistical based evidence. Resolution in favor of the victim should happen. Ignoring when there are multiple victims can not be tolerated.

    Wow. Yes, there is the occasional odd ball exception. Are you really going to stand on this and deny the victims any reasonable way to enforce their greivances??? Really? Sounds a lot like the "You can't prove god does exist, so he must exist" argument if you ask me". My child was sexually abused by his Sunday School Teacher. So were the two children in another family. When multiple victims come forward something need to be done, and quickly, before there are more victims. But, in 1990, their was no effective process. I am glad times are changing for the better. #metoo

    One accuser vs one accused is clearly subject to a need for additional evidence. We can't make it possible for anyone to damage anyone with an unsubstantiated claim. But, nither should the person making the claim suffer negative consequences for coming forward. Now, when we reach 2, 3, 4 etc accusers the evidence of abuse becomes statistically overwhelming quite quickly, especially when paired with other outside evidence.

    Um, yeah, True Scotman I do concur with your comment. Fully. But, I do not appreciate you quoting me out of context and slandering me. I made it very clear, abundantly clear, that I was concerned only with the comments in this thread. I never once said not enough evidence for the women making claims in the #metoo movement. If you doubt my sincerity go back and read my past comments about this topic, the rape of my child, and the treatment of my daughter. There is evidence. The statistical evidence is huge, based on multiple experiences being recounted by multiple victims against a minor discrete subset of individual. It is this nonrandom pattern, combined with multiple individual witnesses to multiple discrete "encounters" that make it the accusations "facts". These people were harmed, and it is unreasonable to demand they destroy their careers and income just to be casted aside and not have anything change.

    You mind reading is way off base. I brought my observation of confirmation bias creeping into the discussion. I simply prefer evidence over independent self serving statements.
  9. #metoo

    I am so disappointed in the level of conformation bias in this discussion. I probably should't be. Is seems to dominate human nature. It is just more pronounced in indoctrinated social groups. I am glad most folks here seem to exercise a higher level, and application, of critical thinking.
  10. #metoo

    I find it laughable that this thread is being dominated by the gender least impacted by #metoo.

    I said to have the same level of respect. I never said to pretend you are not attracted to other people. Make this choice upfront, and spend your natural sexual energy interacting with people outside of work. Work relationships need to stay work relationship. Yes, there were several highly intelligent woman at work I was quite attracted to at work. Yes, i thought about them in a sexual way. But, I cared enough about them to not act on any of these thoughts. It's called empathy. It is called respect. I would expect the same from them. It is very doable. Besides, I am quite certain my off hours fantasizing about these "amazing" women was a lot more satisfying than any attempt at a "real" relationship would of been, especially given the work relationship conflicts and stresses that would or could result.

    OMg.... guys, the word in the WORKPLACE is respect. Treat all of your female coworkers with the same respect you would your mother. You are getting in trouble because you let your biology interfere with doing your job.

    Concur. It sucked. Totally sucked. And painful too. For me, it took a full two years, followed by two more years of infrequently flashbacks/irrationality. But, now, approaching 8 years out of their mindfuck I have washed a good 99% of the old programmingout of my mind. I have Never been at more peace. I have never been happier. I see no end to my peace of mind and existance. Loving it. Every single moment. Loving it.

    Nice to have you back Dark Bishop (note my icon here is a white "poison pawn") even if it is just for a moment. One off the wall thought from me. If it is bothersome for her to see you on this site, and demands you spend little time here; that should mean that she should be genuine and not expose herself, or you, to any religious online sites or broadcast programming. But, being genuine is not a strong suit for these folks, is it?

    I am so sad.
