  1. I don't have a specific hobby to recommend, but I have some overall advice. What worked for me was to stop trying to reclaim old interests and hobbies. And instead try things I would never have considered. So this may sound odd but, as an example, I've been learning about the Satanic Temple. That's something I would never in a million years considered 2 months ago. But now I find it interesting. I won't be joining, but I have learned to appreciate what they're trying to do. It's taken my mind off of reclaiming something from my past and has shifted my focus to exploring the unknown.
  2. Of course you are correct. Gluten in this case would still be considered an accident by Catholics in the Aristotelian sense.
  3. Have any of you debated anyone on the fine tuning argument? I was told recently that it is the strongest rational argument for a god, but I don't understand how it's any different than a god of the gaps. Doesn't it just insert God into an unknown variable as if God is the obvious answer because we just don't know better? P.S. I hope everyone is doing well during this pandemic.
  4. I agree it doesn't make sense, but their logic (transubstatiation) does offer an explanation for the case of celiac. The "essence" of the bread changes, but not it's "accidents." It becomes Jesus' body in essence but retains the accidental properties of bread. Makes total sense doesn't it?
  5. In Catholicism (my old life) would say that neither is sinful as an orientation but both would be if acted out.
  6. Thank you so much, Margee. You're words are very comforting. I hope you stay healthy and that your husband is able to keep his job.
  7. Excellent and comforting thread, pantheory. Thank you.
  8. Thank you everyone. Your suppprt and community really help. I went for a walk today and drew for a bit. Those helped as well. And thanks for the good news, MOHO. Good luck with the Mrs.
  9. I'm more worried about the economy and the potential for another depression. I'm worried of losing my job and not being able to take care of my family. It's been awhile since I have worked with a therapist. But it's probably a good time to go back.
  10. First of all, just to fill you in on my own personal version of crazy, a part of me blames my deconversion for the pandemic. I am a rational person who knows better, but the thought is haunting. But what I'm really looking for is solace. If this had happened before my deconversion, I would have been in constant prayer and feeling like all would be okay...I just needed to have faith. Now I feel helpless. Where do you find comfort at a time like this?
  11. I can very much relate to this. I started listening to progressive Christian podcasts somewhat religiously. I didn't recognize it at the time as holding on, but in retrospect it's very obvious that's what I was doing. Congratulations on recognizing it and making the change. Un unequally yoked marriage must be difficult. I hope things work out without much difficulty for you two.
