  1. Interesting! I was once a member of IONS, about twenty years ago, and would attend local meetings. I was going through a "New Age" phase at the time.
  2. I think that it is just hard for some people, especially religious conservatives, to fully comprehend that some people, even people they know pretty well, just don't have the same beliefs as they do. Even after you have told them repeatedly! Thick skulls, an' all that....
  3. Well, thanks to the doctors, my aunt is now better. If my religious relatives want to think that god helped out, then I'm fine with that. I just know that if she were not getting better, there is no way in hell that they would blame their deity for it. "Hey, he works in mysterious ways, he needs her in heaven, or sumthin like that." But, hey! I'm glad that the operation went well. Hooray!
  4. Well, I have been asked to pray for a family member. The person asking knows that I'm not a believer. I just said, "Sure, I will send some good vibes her way!" Does any one else on the board ever have this experience? Just wondering.....
  5. I can't remember if he has been mentioned in this thread, but the late author Zecharia Sitchin also wrote on this topic. He has a truly fascinating take on "ancient astronauts", and was a prolific writer. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zecharia_Sitchin Be sure to check him out! I don't necessarily believe all that he wrote, but the topic is very interesting.
  6. Oh yeah, Icke's pretty goldang'd nuts! I find him vaguely entertaining, though. I just wish that there weren't thousands of people who take him seriously.
  7. No, I have never felt tortured by anybody, much less the god of the bible. I'm not crazy about his followers having any sort of power, though..... They can follow a lot of ill-thought-out policies and vote in politicians who will only look out for the narrow interests of their fellow conservative christians, to the detriment of others.
  8. I waited and waited, but sadly, he never showed up. I like the "Lucifer" TV-series a lot. I would love to have a long chat with the "Tom Ellis" version of the ol' debbil. That would be quite entertaining!
  9. Mine would have been "never truly gave heart to the Lord" -- I had my doubts from day one! For quite some time, I mostly just kept 'em to myself, but eventually, I just wanted out completely! Of course, "just wanted to sin" is a good one, too. Always cracks me up!
  10. Yeah, all those verses seem so ridiculous to the modern-day mind. Product of a different era!
  11. Fascinating! I can't wait to see how this plays out. (I know that it is not "definitive proof", just yet....)
  12. For a time there, I suspected that my odd fetishes / paraphilias were connected to my religious upbringing, but I eventually concluded that it was just my weird individual quirks, since, at a very basic level, I never really bought into the whole fundamentalist mindset.
  13. Yeah, that shit is really going to win hearts and minds. That's just crass stupidity in action. I don't like bullying, whether it is done by the right or left.
  14. Yes, this is very distressing! The Republicans are in a blind panic about their increasingly slim chances of winning a truly fair and democratic election, and have thrown in with the would-be dictator Trump (and his "not-so-behind-the-scenes" master Putin) in order to fix the election in their favor. They will pull out every dirty trick in the book to retain power. We are slouching towards fascism and theocracy. Believe me, I'm not exactly crazy about the Democrats, but I prefer them to the Republicans!
