Trump Macho Infection

Trump Macho Infection

Trump rises to power by tapping into the reptilian brain of humans. He is a con-man who recognizes a patsy when he sees one.

Trump pretends to be masculine in ways that remind me of Benito al when I was a child. Both behave with attitudes of entitlement, arrogance, selfishness, egocentricity, overbearing, pompous, and cruel. They believe in Social Darwinism…

Cary Part 5 Chicken stock

Finding foods that Cary likes that can be cooked to a mushy stage and put through a blender and seived has been harder to find than I thought it would be. Yesterday, I had success. I made chicken stock using a big package of *chicken wings, simmered it until it was reduced by half, used that stock to cook the tips of asparagus, sieved it and put it in a glass Mason jar, labelled it, put it in the refrigerator after offering it to Cary while it was hot. He rejected it with vigor! Sometime in…

THE TANTALIZING PURPOSES OF PRAYER

Purpose no. 1.

Most common purpose of prayer is to ask God to do things – fulfill requests, grant favours, and generally use his supernatural powers to act on behalf of the petitioner.

Disputation.

Simple logic shows that any prayer that asks God for anything is pointless. Is prayer going to bring to God’s attention a need of which he was not previously aware ? Is it going to convince him to do…

Cary Part 4 Diagnosis confirmed

Another batch of tests today, more scheduled, and the diagnosis made. Various people conducting the treatment plan will do all they can to make him comfortable. Cancer starts in his esophagus, moved into the lymph glands and lungs. Surgery is out. It has not been decided yet if he will have chemo and radiation.  

The good news is Cancer Care Northwest provides Cary with the greatest group of people, from physicians, technicians, nurses, support staff. They all have positive attitudes.…

Cary Part 3 Foods To Nourish Cary Team

Menus for easy swallowing is a new challenge and one I am not well equipped from experience to meet. 

The reality is, I explore options and need some brainstorming partners. Remember when I had cancer, and so many of you were on my Cancer Team, encouraging, advising, teaching me how to proceed? Now I ask for a Foods To Nourish Cary Team. 

Options:  

beef, chicken, or fish stock;

mashed potatoes cooked in homemade…

Cary Part 2

I followed Cary around. First I worked at the boys' ranches after his release. The Community Colleges needed someone to teach at the prison, which I did after Cary left; I taught Life Skills to men who had been in prison for long periods and were about to return to the public life. They had to learn how to get a job, manage money, control anger, communication skills, problem-solving and conflict resolution skills. Many had wives and children "on the outside" and my task was to help them…

Cary Part 1

Cary, my son who was a real handful from the moment we picked him up from Deaconess Hospital in Spokane when the nurses put me in a wheelchair with Cary in my arms, and we went to the door. The nurse said all babies ride in the arms of their adopted mothers so no one can know the baby is adopted. We waited for six months for his birth. We didn't meet his birth mother; however, we knew she was just a kid, 17 or 18 years old. His birth father was an airman at Fairchild Airforce Base near…

TIED MY ASS

TIED MY ASS—I'm a day late and a dollar short in publishing this, because I wrote it over two months ago, which is a long time in political hogwash.

It's August and I'd be willing to bet my last dollar that by the time voting begins in November the media will say the…

Odd observations

Google advertising has policies against "advertiser unfriendly" video's on YouTube, allowing them to pull ads from video's. While most video's seem to have a single ad, and many youtubers that focus on topics like Atheism, LGTB, and basic news and information have ads pulled from perfectly reasonable video content. Mr Hagee's video calling for the end of the world December 29'th 2016 has 19 ads for a 27min long video!!!!!

WHY? This seems beyond crazy on so many levels. I…

The 10 biological imperatives of life, including Homo sapiens

The 10 biological imperatives of life, including Homo sapiens

 

1/ Oxygen (air). The element oxygen is imperative for almost all life on Earth. Our atmosphere is 21% oxygen with the rest made up almost entirely of nitrogen along with other gases at pretty much trace levels. Oxygen is the element in air that allows animals, including humans, to conduct the chemistry of life. The 21% is critical because below 17% not enough oxygen is present to allow for comfortable…

Mother Teresa was no Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa is being canonized today. Thanks to the people here, actually, they showed me a Christopher Hitchens documentary on her showing her cruelty, extortion, supporting evil dictators, and the appalling conditions for her hospice in Calcutta.

Not that her sainthood title means anything to us atheists, but it spreads the propaganda that she was a good person. Mother Teresa was one of the greatest con artists of our lifetime and got away with it with impunity.

Farmers Markets

This post has nothing to do with atheism, and it doesn't fit into any group. So I'll just add it here.



As some of you may know, my daughter and her husband (Emily and Nate) operate an organic vegetable (mostly) farm. Tillable land is about 100 acres, so it's fairly large.



For close to 10 years they've been taking their produce to farmers markets on Saturday mornings. They started with one, then expanded to three. They're back to one, and after this year, there will be… Continue

I wonder . .

Dear friend,
 
Today is my birthday. I went running.
While I was running, my thoughts turned to this beautiful Earth and the wonderful peoples of this earth and why we do what we do, what makes us live, what gives us purpose.  Unlike animals, we are  aware of our existence. Therefore we need, no, in fact…

The Historicality of Jesus Christ. Who cares?

There is some debate among scholars on the historicality of Jesus Christ. Was the story given in the New Testament about Jesus based on a real historical figure? There is a movement that now poses it as a serious question but they are mostly considered fringe radicals. Most Christian scholars scoff at the question which is no surprise due to their Christian beliefs. Honestly, I believe that the “radicals” offer much compelling evidence for the case of a fictional Jesus though I…

Why Answers in Genesis deny the real Ark has not been found

Simple. If the real Ark was found, who would want to visit Ken Ham's ridiculous fraud?

“Alhamdulillah”, proclaimed my friend

His name was Bukhari, a sunni Muslim. He was the Training Manager at BHEL, Trichy (India). He used to invite me from Madras for conducting 3 to 5 day training programmes & workshops for his middle level & senior level managers. During the lunch break, I would walk from the conference hall to his cabin in the next building for a chit-chat.

I never took lunch since it would make me sleepy. I had to be at my best…

What reason is there to believe "God" as spoken by theists is a coherently defined word?

Why don't you atheists who believe "God" is a coherently defined term like the terms "unicorn" and "Santa Claus" give me a reason to believe that it is?  Don't you think that would be a better plan than just dissing me because I don't happen to know of any reason to believe "God" is a coherently defined word?
