Faithful atheist. Religion causes problems and is all about money
Couldn't have said it better myself.
Topic Pokemon GO?
01 Aug 2016 01:19
I collected the cards when I was a kid, played the gameboy games and watched the videos too. I stopped over 15 years ago and I'd rather not go back to pokemon. Of course the biggest crock of shit is: not too long ago I saw a used merchandise place selling the cards for 50 cents a piece. Even the cards that should have been supposedly worth hundreds, if not thousands by now. Damn, I'm so glad I didn't bother trying to preserve them all these years. Bottom line, they just wanted to go back to pokemon so they could make a little more green off it.

Topic Gas Prices Need to Go Up!
26 Jun 2016 10:38
If you reduce the demand for oil (by driving vehicles that consume less), you drive down prices in theory. But as I said in my original post, for me it's more of a safety issue. Trucks and SUVs simply put other drivers in danger (and as you see from the other posters, their drivers feel very entitled*).
I have to agree here. A lot of times when I drive back from work, I get behind a big truck or some other big vehicle on a single lane road, they block out the traffic lights, even if I have a little distance between me and them. Recently, a co worker riding his motorcycle ran a yellow light, but when someone was trying to turn left did the same thing. My co worker ran right into the car and went flying.
I guess we are already a smidge reckless when it comes to driving, because everything hates waiting in traffic. Everyone is always in a hurry, whether they are on a cross country trip, going to or from work, or even just to run an errand. So, the original post here is a problem, but everyone needs to work on their patience and courtesy when it comes to driving too. You should be in the best frame of mind, because there are a shit load of maniacs driving out there.
Topic Heaven or Hell?
27 Apr 2016 17:03
I don't believe in either, but I think there are two theories that are valid.
1. Nothing happens, when you are gone, you are gone. Just the like the days before you were born.
2. George Carlin's theory: what you think is what you get. You say you are going to hell is party with your friends, chances are, you'll get there. Oddly enough, most people's idea of hell, is pleasurable place, like heaven. Although, if you think it'll say 'Welcome to Hell' in the front, then it will. If Hell has flames, rotting corpses, maggots, torture chambers, or whatever horrible thing you could come up with to make it sound horrible, then it will. If your idea of heaven is just clouds and a church sermon that goes on forever, then that's what you'll have for eternity.
In the end, there isn't a single person that has ever walked the earth that hasn't been at least a little curious what happens. You hear stories of what happens, but in the end, you won't know, or not know for sure until the day you die. I believe I've been a good person in my life, far from perfect, but still good. I don't believe in god, but if it turns out there is a god and he/she/it wants to send me to hell, then that'll be his/her/it's choice.
Topic RELIGIOUS 'FREEDOM?' WTFMF'S???
27 Apr 2016 16:43
'Religious freedom' should always mean both freedom of religion and freedom from religion .
But the world would be even better if we treated religions just like any other world view, instead of giving it a special privileged status.
In a perfect world, but this world is far from perfect. Honestly, this freaks me out a little bit, considering, who knows what could come down the road in like 20 years. I haven't personally see this problem in effect, but I'm sure I'll see it sooner or later. I'll be sick to my stomach, and be unsure what to do. I know a few gay people and they certainly deserve better than what this law is offering. I'm an atheist, and I don't ever see myself having a religion again. I have my somewhat offensive opinions about religion, but those are my beliefs. Either way, nothing can be proven, and denying anyone anything over unproven theor(ies) is just plain wrong. Personally, I can't understand how anyone can believe in any religion, but as long as you don't try to convert me, or think you are a better person because of your religion, I don't care what you believe in. I also certainly hope no LGBT people try to change who they are.

Topic Happy endings or sad endings - which do you prefer?
16 Mar 2016 12:23
I could go for happy endings, but of course we know in real life, there are more sad endings than happy ones. I try to not necessarily pick one for my stories, just write what I think should happen. Whether readers lean towards liking it or not, that's up to them. Of course you can't please everyone. So, I just think the ending should fit the story.

Topic Chicago police officer sues victim's family over shooting
08 Feb 2016 15:40
Well, I recently spent the night in Chicago. Some asshole got too close to my car and broke off my driver side view mirror while driving and my car got towed because I parked where like 10 other people did overnight. I could never follow the logic on that one, but a person getting their car back before paying their fines was not allowed. So, I'm definitely never gonna spend the night there again. I'm still thinking WTF reading this of course and I'm shaking my head too. With all the shit going on in this country, not just with cops, but Trump on immigrants, that kid with the 'bomb alarm clock' and everything else, I can't follow it. Don't we want to at least make it seem like we're trying to get on the right track? Has the horrible reality shows gone to people's heads made them think we need to get the country to flushed further down the toilet?
