  1. I suspect there are many women who hold old fashioned values, would enjoy living on a farm and who are not religious.
  2. A simple google search may open the door to your mind: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3770908/ https://kids.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/frym.2016.00003
  3. Here is yet another End3 thread going nowhere.
  4. Modified to: Understanding physical/chemical mechanisms (theories/explanations/predictions, all subject to falsifiability) -> natural/physical (is this redundant?) -> behaviors -> explanations and predictions of and concerning cultural consensus. I don't "know" this, and neither do you. That being said, the evidentiary history strongly suggests many things can be explained and predicted, with a fairly high degree of probability (subject, of course to modification or outright falsifiability) by first understanding physical/chemical/biological mechanisms. You seem to expect the human species, collectively, should have all the answers now. It doesn't, although many work quite hard to understand more as time passes.
  5. Yes, Christian apologetics focused on self- importance, convenience and irresponsibility are particularly smarmy.
  6. Thanks for giving us your update, RealityCheck. I must not have been paying attention, but I did not realize you were experiencing such personal trauma, aggravation and despair. Good news that you have solved and/or mitigated those issues. Keep in touch with this forum. There is no reason to quit it.
  7. Please spend the time to write complete and coherent sentences, as that would be quite helpful for any discussion. Put more simply, the above sentence simply sucks.
  8. Emotion can effect the maintenance of belief, but not necessarily. Some folks' emotions will be involved to one extent or another. For other folks, not so much.
  9. An interesting interpretation of the myth, considering how vacuous the myth is in the first place.
  10. Sit back, relax and enjoy the conversations you have here.
  11. Many claim their God is not definable, not knowable, etc., yet in the very next breath make claim after claim of how they "define" and "know" their particular sky fairy, or set of sky fairies. Of course, they also claim they have a special access, a privileged observing position, etc. They're full of themselves, and full of shit.
  12. Good. Do you believe you need therapy for a minor event that occurred three years ago? I don't know. Often, there are many different ways to deal with a situation such as you described and many of those possible ways are just fine. One is not necessarily better than another, just different.
  13. You did nothing legally or morally wrong, although some others may have considered your insistence to mind this girl a bit out of line. It was three years ago. Perhaps it is time to move on from all that.
  14. Christianity, as well as many other religions, has always been composed of numerous sects, often competing with each other and often developing dogma and beliefs which reject or ignore earlier dogma and beliefs. Humans invented and control the dogma and beliefs, as well as the changes in them over time. As much as Jesus hypothetically would have rejected certain dogma and beliefs of some modern Christian sects, those same modern Christian sects demonstrate they reject the mythological dogma and beliefs of Jesus.
