"Thanks Sac', that was a fun story.  I too think that the little ritual of invoking the housekeeper spirit triggered an unconscious memory.  Those rituals can be useful as long as we realize that they don't correlate with reality,…"

"would only work  if there is someone  else in the house why's that?  He could call 911 if the videocams show his father's had an accident."

"Somebody I knew put up some video monitors of his father.  He keeps track of what they show via his PC.  That might be a way to preserve his wish to be independent, yet you would know if he has an accident. "

"Thanks for the advice. In the end he will be his own worst enemy. His falls will most likely do him in. He can still drive but often calls me to get him a loaf of bread and drive 15 miles to bring it to him. I let it go to machine and ignore the…"

"That's one of the problems right now. He is fighting like hell to avoid going into an assisted living place and making bad decisions all along the way. He can't think properly and he falls down way too much. Being aware of his own falling…"

"Freethinker, nice idea but that hammer was kept under lock and key and I was the only one with a key. The hammer had to of been there the whole time and my eyes failed to see it."

"You are right Freethinker, but it is hard to help him. He gets angry easily and finally told my son in law that he cannot remember anything from one day to the next. Right now he has given notice and is supposed to be out of his place by the end of…"

"I few years ago I was missing my 5 lb. hammer. It was not in the usual spot where I kept it. Then I remembered I had it on the porch recently, but it was not there now. That made me think the neighbor kid stole it. I looked for this hammer several…"

"This same thing works for me and has for many years. I used to believe that it was my guardian who was actually my spirit helper. Now as an atheist I see it to be a trigger or link to my subconscious. I no longer do this openly and instantly as you…"

"With something you lost, you probably do know where it is, somewhere in your mind. When I lose something, it often helps to replay in my mind scenarios where I was interacting with it.  Where do I see myself putting it?  Aha! The…"

When something weird happens

Let me start from far away. Before I became an atheist (during my childhood), I actually believed in housekeeper spirit - a silly thing that comes from times before slavian countries adopted christianity. As saying goes, if you'll ask this spirit about something you've lost, you'll find it immediately.When I grew up, obviously, I've stopped believing in something like this (goodbye Santa and Jesus). But, lately a most interesting story happened. Basically, I forgot where I put my ancient mp4…See More

Sacreligious replied to Larry's discussion YouTube Video: "How to Convert an Atheist"
"Maybe I misunderstood you but you said: "Perhaps one reason why I've never been a believer, is that accepting that idea of a protective father-like Being watching over me, would be quite alien to me." Which is exactly what I said. You…"

Sacreligious replied to Larry's discussion YouTube Video: "How to Convert an Atheist"
"You're not an atheist then. If you think that god doesn't exist because you didn't have a caring father in your life - you should reassess your life. This is not reason for not believing in god, do not bring atheism down to a personal…"

Sacreligious commented on Justin Murray's blog post The Argument from Incorporeality
"I'm sorry, but this argument is flawed. You have to know bounds of time and space, you have to know what is beyond time and space, you have to know why there can't be any sentient being, why immaterial things have to be outside time and…"
