    I'm probably older than most of the members here and have some life experience to look back upon. I never bought into religion and find it the source of too many wars. The more I look at Christianity, the more preposterous it becomes.

    Preparing for fundy visit

    Talking to fundies about religion is like talking to the wall.

    Musing about work

    The o.p. sounds like military service, the most colossal waste of manpower I've ever seen.
  3. Haven't researchers found that countries with open prostitution and positive attitudes about sex have fewer problems with sexual assault, pedophilia, and other such issues?
  4. But then doesn't the Bible say "Ask and ye shall receive"?
  5. Is it necessary to reveal the religion issue at all? Is there a possibility of just introducing the s.o. without bringing up religion?
  6. All of the above plus he'd have to stop causing children to die of horrible, painful diseases and quit allowing some of them to be born with horrific defects.

    A Christian wrote in his blog about us

    Hi Miriam: So are all sins forgiven? Are there any unforgivable sins? If someone rapes and murders six little girls and dismembers their bodies, is tried and found guilty, and then repents six minutes before his execution, will he be admitted to heaven? And what happens to all the good people all over the world who are not Christian, do not accept Jesus or God, but live good lives, love their children and help each other?
  8. STAND BACK!!! Here comes a stampede of pedophiles anxious to own up to their transgressions!! By Monday we'll certainly have cleaned up this mess.
  9. While the data shows migration the story does not examine the reason for that migration. While there is a correlation between the migration and the tax level, correlation is not causation. There are many reasons why people move. I don't dispute the problem of high taxes, but I'd be interested in a study that shows the reasons why people move.

    Atheist Christmas wrapping paper

    Well, this would be atheist wrapping paper. In reality, I drew on it with crayons. It's a gag gift anyway.
  11. As I was wrapping presents this afternoon, it dawned on me that this is great atheist Christmas wrap. Do you think I could sell it?

    so sick of facebook :P

    I see FB, Youtube, Instagram, Twitter and other social media platforms as major forces that have shifted billions of people into narcissism. It's all about the poster, with unlimited selfies and inane comments about their latest adventures. There is much more to life than that.

    As everyone else has said, you need legal advice from an attorney who is familiar with the laws in your area. Now if he's controlling all your money and would know if you are paying a lawyer, you might consider finding the local women's shelter. There you can find help and advice without him being able to find out.
  14. This sounds like a hoot. Instead of celebrating Christmas, this mixed-religion family has "bad choices day." The kids are allowed to do anything they want as long as it doesn't hurt themselves or someone else. Eat popsicles for breakfast. Stay up all night. Donuts for lunch. Unlimited candy. I am going to try this with my grandchildren. But since they are, unfortunately, fundies, it will have to wait. Perhaps some time in August when there are no holidays and everyone is fed up with the weather. https://slate.com/human-interest/2018/12/replace-christmas-with-bad-choices-day.html
  15. The fundies are also guilty: https://slate.com/human-interest/2018/12/evangelical-metoo-summit-churchtoo.htm
