Yes, Northern Mexico. Let’s give it back to them. They can have it for free if they take Texas back too. And we’ll pay them $1 million to take Florida too!

When I’ve asked MORmONs this direct question,’Do you believe God cursed two entire races of people with dark skin for the sins of their fathers, like it says in Mormon Scriptures?’ They always lie by answering with one of the following b.s. cliches, “Where the scriptures mention darkness, it is just a metaphor for being cut off from God. We don’t believe he actually cursed them

I think the closest thing we have today is the Dude Jeffry Lebowski. I’m a Dudeist Priest with my own religion Buddyism, with me and My buddy, Buddy. It’s a 501c3 Religion, so say you are my buddy, you send me a “tithe” of anywhere above 10% of your gross, not net, and you get to write it off as a ‘’charitable donation’ on your taxes and I don’t have to claim it as income be

MORmONism is big business. That part works exceedingly well. Because of that they will never admit it is just a myth. The myth needs to be busted. Things like CES Letter and Book of Mormon on Broadway are doing a pretty good job of that!

We met an elderly couple having a picnic, with wine, cheese and smoked salmon on the rim of the crater of Mt. Rainier. I laughed at the sight and said, "This looks like this is not your first time here." He looked at her admiringly and said, "This is her 15th time." She smiled back at him and said, "This is his 50th time." I said, "You're my heroes!"

I accept the fact the US Census defines race as https://www.census.gov/topics/population/race/about.html "The racial categories included in the census questionnaire generally reflect a social definition of race recognized in this country and not an attempt to define race biologically, anthropologically, or genetically.... .....White, Black or African American, American Indian or Alas

Thank you, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%9Cbermensch Übermensch as a goal for humanity to set for itself.

Cool, yeah, that's what I was looking for, answers to the question, not criticism of people I have long considered heroes of mine, in some cases, my whole life, like Jane Goodall, who I learned about when I was 3 years old, while attending college lectures on anthropology with my Mom, who was still in college at the time with her kids in tow. All of my Sisters remember the same lectures vividly

Saying, ‘Therevis only one race, the human race.’ Acknowledges what mapping the human genome has revealed, the fact that we are 99.9% genetically identical. So when we are discussing racial differences, they only account for the most superficial 1/10th of 1% of what makes us appear different. So that means we are all 99.9% African. Despite the fact Eurasians are 2% Neanderthal and Asians/Me

I heard an interview with Jane Goodall recently where she was talking about a book she wrote recently about the importance of taking bold action on climate change and ecology. The interviewer asked her if she had hope. She said,”Oh I NEVER give up Hope! Without hope we’ve got nothing!” And she went on to tell about the things that give her hope in these troubled times. I’m curious

There is a good reason Atheists have never been above 4% of the population in America, because of the horrors of Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Kim Jong Un, the list goes on, and still goes on today. Atheism as a political movement is a horrible idea, see above. Atheism as a ‘social club’ kinda sucks, at least in my experience. I’ve been to a few of Atheist meet up groups since escaping

I'm just glad somebody else in this forum is on the receiving end of Lot's Wife's wrath for daring to bring up Nietzsche (or Lao Tzu or Einstein or Kaku or the list goes on.) She does the same thing to me, accuses me of not being able to read or of being too stupid to understand anything, because I'm not the spelling marm she is.

So now you're comparing yourself to Hitch? That's rich! He was an asshole, IMHO.
