Topic I Am An Atheist. (Does that offend you?)

Honestly, until now I had never heard of it so I will look into it. Thank you for sharing. icon_biggrin

Unfortunately, PR is not one of our strong suits. The only reason I got into UU'ism was because my wife's doctoral thesis supervisor was a past president of the local UU congregation which got us both interested.

I'm not a fan of organized religions. I find too much fault & flaw with their nonsense, especially being a woman. I don't appreciate I'm less valuable or have less worth because I don't have a dick. I'm not subservient to my husband, I'm his partner & he is mine.

I do believe in God or a higher power... and I believe in science and evolution. I do see how science and technology has done so much good & I always say that God gave us the ability to use our brains to make the world a better place.

Not trying to be missionary, but have you ever given Unitarian Universalism a try? I'm actually ex-UU right now but that's more about me not feeling like sitting in a service these days than any unhappiness with the movement as a whole. There's no established doctrine, just a set of principles like respecting the inherent worth and dignity of every person, respecting the interdependent web of existence, and so on. You can believe in God or not, in Jesus or not, and so on. I've met UUs who follow Christian, Buddhist, Taoist, humanist, and other paths. And UU churches are LGBT-friendly (in fact, in the forefront of the same sex marriage movement in Canada and US), feminist (mostly), and generally welcoming to most persons. Not pushing it, but just thinking that it's a church that addresses a lot of what you don't like about Christian churches.

Topic Who is your favorite male comic?
Posted 30 Oct 2015 05:43

I've had a few over the years:

George Carlin
Bill Murray (okay, he's more sketch comedy than standup but still funny, ditto the original SNL crew like Chevy Chase, Dan Akroyd, etc.)
Robin Williams (RIP) - funnier on stage than in most of his movies
Steven Wright

I'm not really up on the current crop (e.g. Louis CK, Russell Peters) though I've noticed a lot of them have "concert films" on Netflix so it's been in the back of my mind to try a few of them out.

So, if I understand you correctly (and no, I'm not trying to be a bitch here), if you believe in God, but don't follow a set religion (Catholic, Baptist, Jewish, etc.) you're just a Theist? And if you believe what Genesis taught us (I'm picking Genesis as it's something most people are familiar with) but that God stopped after "Adam & Eve" (for lack of a better term) you're a Deist?

If that's the case... I now know the correct term for what I am. Not that it matters, I love all people and try to get along with them... though some I'm not as successful with as others. A person being an Atheist doesn't bug me in the least as long as they respect my beliefs.

Hell... I married an Atheist.

I would hope even someone not part of a set religion would be more than just a theist (ie. have something more to their faith than just "I believe in God") but if you believe in God, regardless of your faith, you are a theist. That's the definition of theist. Now, you can get more precise without getting into specific religions. Pantheist (existence is God), panentheist (existence is in, encompassed by God), monotheist (belief in one transcendant God), polytheist (multiple deities), are arguably narrower terms under the broad term "theist".

Deist is pretty much what you say, though most Deists tend to not take Genesis literally, but accept scientific theories of existence. To them, science is largely about finding God's plan much as revelation is for traditional theist. Again, Deist is a fairly generic term and you can find them in a number of places including some Christian churches, UU churches, and so on. It wouldn't surprise me to find there are Jewish and Islamic Deists, too.

If you believe there is a God involved, then it's theism. If you don't belong to a specific religion, then I guess that's your religion, too, but strictly speaking it is a "broader term" with various theist religions falling into it.

Now, if you believe that God just created the universe and then left it to develop according to the laws and such that God put in place at the beginning with no ongoing intervention (ie. no miracles or incarnations), that's another school of thought called Deism. I have kind of leaned that way at times,but in the end I don't see the point of believing in a non-interventionist God. It is effectively no different from there being no God.

Pretty much anything beyond basic intercourse. Oral is a biggie (both directions), though. Getting some toys involved would be nice, too.

This. Though I do kind of doze off sometimes on weekend afternoons if there's nothing much to do.

Is atheism a religion? Or the lack of religion? It appears if you believe in God then you must prove a god. If you believe in nothing then there is nothing to prove.

Atheism is a lack of belief in God, NOT a lack of religion and it is certainly NOT a religion, just a religious/philosophical idea. There are religions (e.g. some schools of Buddhism) that are atheist but atheism itself is simply the idea that there is no Deity and can be found in many religious and philosophical traditions/schools. It is therefore comparable to "monotheism", which is not a religion but the idea found in a number of religions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Bahai'ism) that there is only one Deity. Polytheism, pantheism, panentheism, agnosticism are all similar ideas as well, none of them a religion but each an idea/concept that can be found in various religious, theological, and philosophical traditions/schools.

I would probably be best described as an atheist agnostic right now - I don't believe in God myself save in a very broad sense but I also regard the existence of metaphysical entities like God, the afterlife, etc. as matters of faith, not reason or empirical evidence. No one can prove with certainty that there is a God but said God cannot be entirely ruled out either. It is ultimately a matter of one's personal faith.

Topic Would you donate your body to science or for organ donation?
Posted 27 Oct 2015 13:53

I suspect some of mine are already past their expiry date, but they are welcome to any that are usable. And I'm more than happy to have medical science use me for research, esp. if it helps someone else suffering from something that affected me. I have a long abiding love of science and don't mind helping out. In the end, of course, it's my wife that gets to make the call even with my donor form filled out, though I hope she'll follow my wishes.

An intriguing possibility to say the least.

Topic Censored Words
Posted 27 Oct 2015 05:35

Probably depends on the story verifier. I got a story rejected for using "nigga" with an A once yet there are stories with "nigger" in them.

Could be those stories you found are older. Could have been more lax at the beginning.

This mostly.

Standards have changed over time as the mods have made rulings on various stories and questions. If they are older stories that were verified before mods ruled on these words and no one complains, they stay. When we make a mod ruling about a word or grammar issue, the mod team generally do not do a retro to fix all existing stories (category or topic removal being the exception to that that I have seen), just apply that ruling going forward.

There may have been a few slips, too. Not everyone registers a given word as "bad". Certainly, the use of "faggot" in the context given by VanGogh (gay men adopting/co-opting it as a term of endearment) might register as kosher for some.

Topic Guy's, she's married, you're hot for her, move on her or no. Be honest!
Posted 26 Oct 2015 13:09

Given that I have two hot (for me) female friends who are married, so I guess I'd say no. That said, I've never consciously ruled it out, just never been overly aggressive with the ladies period. Also, the fact that I have no idea of whether they are at all interested in straying.

She sleeps on my right at home. No special reason, that's just what worked out for us. If we are travelling, depends on the bed and the room layout so we're not committed to that or anything.

Topic tablets vs. laptops
Posted 23 Oct 2015 07:41

Looking back at my first post in this thread from almost two years ago, I'll have to say I have mellowed on tabs a bit. I think that a tab with a detachable keyboard (like a Surface Pro, though there are similar options for iPad and various Android tabs) would actually be a suitable replacement for a laptop for me now. The speed, storage, and display quality are definitely up to snuff now and the keyboard deals with my ongoing inability to type efficiently on touchscreens (though the excellent onscreen keyboard on my new Galaxy S6 has even mellowed me on that quite a bit). Have not actually tried it yet, but I'm now open to it.

Topic What is your Recovery Time?
Posted 22 Oct 2015 10:06

I think I answered this recently in another thread but what the hell. I used to be able to go again after 15 minutes or half an hour, esp. masturbating. I would last longer the second time, but I could get back at it fairly quickly. That has stretched out over time, and a couple hours is probably closer to the truth now.

Topic Liberals Win Majority Government in Canada
Posted 20 Oct 2015 13:19

This was my favourite bit off Twitter today. lol

Funny thing is, boxing (or sparring with a partner anyhow) is how he works out and he once had a semi-serious match against a Canadian Senator (who is now in trouble over financial scandals and unrelated assault charges) and won.

I'm not totally happy with the outcome but I can live with it. The previous government had to go after 10 years and an increasingly authoritarian approach. I'm just not sure I trust Justin with the power that comes with a majority, but I'm keeping an open mind and watching what he does next.

And, yeah, he's a hunk but just be aware that he's married with three kids so, unlike his old man who was a swinging bachelor when first elected, this Trudeau is not on the market.

Topic How many men know the difference?
Posted 20 Oct 2015 12:29

In spite of being a lover of boobs, I'm not really an expert in this particular aspect. I know a woman has fake ones if she tells me or if it is very obvious but I doubt I can tell a well-done boob job from natural without a side-by-side comparison. In the end, if they look good and feel good, I'm not too worried about where they came from.

Topic latest movie that you saw or ones you wish to see
Posted 20 Oct 2015 12:26

The planned monster franchise from Warner and Legendary has caught my interest. It will encompass the 2014 Godzilla, Kong : Skull Island (now in production), the sequel to Godzilla (which may include other Japanese monster like Mothra), and and Kong versus Godzilla. If they can keep the quality level at that of the 2014 Godzilla, this could be a fun series.

Topic Natural or Unnatural ?

I'm cool with bare when it's fresh and smooth but find a trimmed bush more visually enticing. Certainly, better a bit of bush than a lot of stubble which I've encountered occasionally on shaved women.

Still not sure what my perfect pair would be. I may not have one.

The last pair I enjoyed were pretty nice but quite different from some past favorites. Hers were kind of large and soft with smallish nips whereas I've traditionally gone for smaller, firmer tits with biggish nips.

Topic Playboy without nudity?
Posted 14 Oct 2015 09:07

What do you think?

I haven't looked at a Playboy in eons so I don't know what it's like today. However, it seems to me that once they drop the nudity, they aren't going to be much more than a well-known, high-class Maxim or FHM (admittedly, even with nudity, that's probably what they are today though, again, I haven't looked at one to see). It will be interesting to see how it goes and whether this helps or hurts them competitively.

Topic Panties VS Knickers
Posted 12 Oct 2015 14:29

Of that list, I would most use panties or maybe undies. I might also use more specific terms (briefs, hipsters, etc.) to more precisely define what is being worn.

I know the term "knickers" but it is not widely used in Canada (my part at least) so I tend to not use it much myself.

Topic If You Eat Pussy....
Posted 09 Oct 2015 13:31

I don't think I have ever had a woman want to go an hour, at least not an hour non-stop. Maybe an hour total with other activities in between but never a full hour of just cunnilingus. Last woman I went down on complained about oversensitivity after about 15 minutes.

Topic What female features do you look for?
Posted 07 Oct 2015 12:51

I find that it is different things with different women. Could be hair for one, boobs on another, lips on a third. Really, though, it's how it all fits together. Sometimes I can't even put my finger on a specific thing that attracts me about a given woman. She's just attractive to me for whatever reason and that reason defies easy analysis.
