  1. MOHO

    Howdy

    Welcome to Ex-C @TinkerGrey
  2. NO! No! No! You got it all wrong, Prof. It's the CHURCH that needs money - not God. Silly goose.
  3. @Blue, Sorry things are so tough for you. Parents making things icky due to coming out as ....<gasp!> non-Xtian? It really sux when parents and fams act like that. When I told my father I was not only not going on a mission for the Mormon church but was also not going to priesthood anymore he revoked his offer to pay for my college, but that was it. I got a job so I could pay rent at home but I still got to study computer programming at a JC. (Yes, they had computers then. See how you are? ) Glad to hear you guyz are living and breathing. Keep us updated and keep looking to that day when you can say to your folks... "I am on my own now. Thanx for all the *&^%'ing hard times, the *&^%, ery, oh, and also all of the *(&%$#@ you put me through! I'm outta here, *&%%'s!
  4. Here in DougTuckey Oregon xmass greetings, in a loud ruckus voice, is a battle cry. It's how the masses identify each other and warn intimidate the non-believers. There are more of us than you. We are righteous and you are an evil little piss-ant who puts science above god. You have no rights - including the right to live. We have the right to kill you but Muslims are evil because they think they have the right to kill non-Muslims. Many xitans in this town are not like that and are quite decent and loving but there are enough of those described above that I actually limit activities outside of my home office, like grocery shopping and communicating with Mrs. MOHO, during the xmass season. As I've written here before I am highly motivated to voice my beliefs when appropriate but sometimes it can be downright dangerous. These people run around with their concealed carry permits and go on about how Satan is everywhere and we're prepared. You all know how powerful group dynamics can be. Sorry to be such a Debby Downer but so many of the pastor asshats out there have glomed onto the war on xmass concept as a means of mitigating the mass out-flux of sheeple that it sometimes feels like a war zone here.
  5. This topic has come up 2 or 3 times since I've been reading/posting for 4 + years (first time around with different but similar screen name). The response has been "This happens each Summer as folks are distracted but they always return in the Fall." The numbers are, however, dwindling each year. Are people more comfortable with expressing their disbelief? Are there other methods, online or otherwise, for seeking emotional support when "coming out" ? Is coming out as a former Xtian more readily excepted? Is the current administration motivating people to stay in the fold? Are current events motivating people to stay in the fold? (It's icky out there!) At Mrs. MOHO's church attendance hemorrhaged from 2008 ~ 2012 when they eliminated one of their two Sunday services. Since then it seems to have settled. ( I have not set foot inside that place in about a year and half so...maybe the sheeple are even fewer in numbers). Interesting topic, though, and I am very interested in the answer(s).
  6. In other words he has plenty of cash now. Did you read some of the comments. Eyouuuuuuuu!
  7. Ooooooooooops! Watch the fundies squirm when you pose THAT argument!
  8. From Marlene's article.... And the reason this "philosophy" came into being (MOHO's take) I am the only one who can talk to God so listen to me. Engage my enemy and smite him. Take his valuables and give most of them to me Do as I say - not as I do Serving me is just like server God - so serve me or I'll tell God to smite you.
  9. Welcome, @UniversalFriendliness , Glad you found us. Religion and true - in the same sentence. Interesting. I recon that depends on your definition but, in my book, religion means to adhere to a doctrine or set of beliefs even in the face of new information. BAD! - MOHO (Mind Of His Own)
  10. Same here. The doubts about xtianity, and all religions, went away directly after finishing one book each from Ehrman, Carrier, Hawkins. And with it went any fear of Hell. That hell thing is merely a control mechanism to keep you in the fold and sending pastor ass-hat a check each month. Xianity does not need a department full of folks to send people snakes in the mail - they have hell!
  11. yes. I am aware of that and took the criticism to heart. Yuk yuks are not always appreciated.
  12. Yes, I'm replying to myself. Just for clarity. What I meant was what we perceive as a soul is just our brain activity. Our brain is advanced enough that is has self-awareness that some confuse with, or have been told since birth, is a soul.
  13. "That is God's plan and YOU, you worthless little sinner, are not privy!" Well get ON it!
  14. The ID and the Super Ego? Just a very complex "software program" (operating system?) running on a hardware platform wherein each transistor can talk to hundreds of others simultaneously - as compared with my trusty IBM Lenovo here that can only talk to one at a time. I suspect that when you have electricity inside synapses that formed (mutated?) in more primitive ancestors certain patterns are bound to happen. Certain patterns became more prevalent due to natural selection and, after a billion years or so, WALAH! The human OS. I sure hope version 2000000000000000000000000000.0 is a little less error prone.
