MY REALIZATION I’m not exactly sure at what age that the very concept of a God started making no sense to me, but it was probably around the first grade, possibly earlier. The explanations of the…Continue

David Proulx replied to Christopher Swicegood's discussion 'What is the purpose of gender'
"That reality doesn't promote anything. It just is. That's like saying that black and white promote a desire for colors. They're just opposite shades that exist with or without our consent. Wringing your hands over their…"

"I sympathize with the cards you were dealt, but yours is a special case, an aborraton, if you will. You know that, though, right. The question pertained to humanity's reality. I don't take the position of what should be, only what is and…"

"Thanks, but my 2 unemployment stints were once in my early 20’s and once in my late 20’s. I like to think that I have a little more integrity than that now, but I couldn’t promise you that, to a much lesser degree, it…"

"Sorry for the delayed response. Work, holiday, life, etc. left me little time for a thoughtful reply. Humanitarianism is a fine thing as long as it doesn't cost anything? The mantra that there is a very small percentage of abusers…"

"Agreed---as always, though---to a point, in general, and, of course, not absolute."

"Thank you, Kris. I have to say that the responses were kind. I fully expected an onslaught, ranging from reasoned & polite to rude teenage name-calling. I'm impressed, relieved, and thankful to you all."

David Proulx replied to Christopher Swicegood's discussion 'What is the purpose of gender'
"Well, of course I don't speak of barefoot, pregnant and over the stove women, and grunting, hunting philandering men, but there are going to be very basic roles (that are NOT absolute) that are more suited do the differences that we have.…"

"I don't necessarily believe in the "minimal level of existence" philosophy, unless it's assured on a strictly voluntary basis (in the form of charities), and even then, while I love the humanitarianism of it, there are big…"

"Thank you, Gregg. You'll have to define that Realist absolutist label (hmm) for me sometime. Again about human nature. Categorizing is how our brains work and what we humans do----places, events, philosophies, and yes, people, but…"

"Was it cathartic? Yes. I really didn't (and don't) want to turn this site into a political debate. I'd been seeing cheap shots to the right thrown out, and was debating to myself if I want to stay here and be subjected to this or…"

David Proulx replied to Christopher Swicegood's discussion 'What is the purpose of gender'
"What’s the purpose of gender?! Is that a serious question? What an incredibly naïve and silly question. I’m sorry, but this kind of mental masturbation is all very nice for cerebral exercise, but to actually contemplate it as…"

"All true and well said, Erock. Maybe I have just been in a disgusted-with-the-world mood. lol There IS a lot to be disillusioned over."

David Proulx replied to Nerdy Keith's discussion 'We Are All Born Sinners?'
"If those desires are things that against their rules, then, yeah, it is. Lust, greed, pride, envy, sloth, gluttony, and wrath are all 7 of the deadly sins. They're all are about ordinary desires & feelings, and they're…"

David Proulx replied to Nerdy Keith's discussion 'We Are All Born Sinners?'
"With a few exceptions of Christians who just want to stir up trouble and/or make us see the error of our ways, we're all atheists here. I was raised Catholic, and to hear the usual mantra about Catholicism based on guilt is…"

"Hello, I joined Think Atheist just recently. I was online searching for a better class of friends. lol. Actually, that's exactly what I told my fellow atheist friend at work. I live in northern Michigan, in Gaylord. I do have a lot of friends,…"

I have become increasingly frustrated with the mindless acceptance of a belief in god that surrounds me, and increasingly lees shy about my atheism as I get older, albeit not antagonistic about it. I'm searching for more like-minded people to hang out with.

Why you left your religion.
Had doubts, even as a child that eventually reasoned out to the preposterous notion that god is.
