    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. Yes. And the quicker you get completely this point, the more content happy years you will have. Don't recommend following my example by waiting until you are 50.
  2. I am willing to be your wingman, if so desired.
  3. Yes, faith is never based upon a blind nothingness. It is based on indoctrination, programming, and wishful thinking. Yes, it has an object. The folks the brainwashing, or our own cognitive dissonance and/or existential anxiety. It takes experiencing both sides of this coin to completely comprehend.
  4. No more tolerating these creeps. You are paying the freight for this service. Stop them onsentence one or two, and escort them out of the room. No discussion. Make them go.
  5. No. Witnessed "Karma" looks more like "regression to the mean" to me.
  6. So sorry for your loss and the reflective pain and emotions you are going through. I lost my last parent and my last sibling 14 years ago when I was 45. I can honestly assure you that timing passing helps. Regard the things we carry, it is a awful choice that soooo many folks choose. Adding "things undone"; we all can effort to uncarry these burdens. I have been working hard on this. Now my carry list is very small.
  7. Hyper, as the former Treasurer of a 200 member church, less than 10% gave 10%. It was especially true of the adult lay leaders who preached tithing. A significant part of my history that created a significant amount of cognitive dissonance.
  8. Our finite time of our existence, every singular precious moment, is what I consider our great source of wealth My spouse and I volunteer roughly weekly at the regional Food Bank. I can think of no greater human kindness then working to get food to those who hunger. Financially we donate to other human impacting causes, especially if our donation makes a significant difference "at the margin".
  9. Yes. Every day going forward is precious. They are a finite number. You/you mind is one massive biological computer. You can reprogram yourself, or you can allow others to do it for you, others who most likely have an agenda for you and you mind. Ignore the outside programmers. Ignore the scripts they placed in you brain (you are clearly making strides in this direction all already). Try focusing on one base thought question to reprogram your mind's "bios", its basic operating system. You get to choose this thought question. For me, it was "What if God is imaginary? How does this change my world, and those I interact around me". Focusing on this literally rewrote my entire mental operating system. For me, it happened amazing fast. I doubt i am typical. After the reboot of my mental bios 9 years ago I experienced total peace of mind. Has not left me since. Yes, there are triggers out there, dredging up hurtful pieces of my old programming. They are quite annoying. Pretty sure I am stuck with these occasional annoyances.

  11. Somehow this conversation skipped the part where the stories in Revelations had evidence of having any reason to possess predictive ability. As in, proof of "power source" abie to make accurate future predictions, such as our scientific based weather forecasting models. Until such time any observations that appear to match is effectively random and coincidental.
  12. Going forward, never forget "It is always about THEM. Always. Unless you reflect THEM, nothing will change. Your "wants" are totally not relevant to THEM. It is not about you. It will never be about you. It will always be about THEM. Emparhy, honest true empathy, is something they will likely never have. You need to decide who you are going to love and respect the most. THEM, or yourself. In my opinion, you seem to be the most valuable human in this bunch. Got lots of hugs waiting for you in Oregon.
