Essay: Rhythmic, religious Latinos vs. atheist wet blankets

Most Latinos are not atheists (see: Latinos and atheism).

The abtract for the 2006 journal article Spirituality Among Latinas/os Implications of Culture in Conceptualization and Measurement declares:

Latinos are now the largest minority group in the United States...

Latino theological literature describes spirituality as integral with Latino culture. Although Latinos are not a monolithic or homogenous group, there are fundamental cultural influences that must be considered in an exploration of spirituality among Latinas/os....

Most of the empirical research in spirituality and religiosity among Latinos has targeted primarily Mexican Americans. These investigations indicate that spirituality and religiosity are interwoven with their daily lives and serve as foundations of strength in coping with life's struggles. For example, religious attendance was associated with psychological well-being across 3 generations of Mexican American families and with physical health status among Mexican American women. Latinos describe their faith as intimate and reciprocal relationships with God, family, and community, with these relationships playing an important role in health and well-being.

According to Study.com:

One of the most famous aspects of Latin music is the rhythm, which is largely inspired by traditional African beats that were developed in the Caribbean. Although there are many variants on this rhythm, the most fundamental form is called the clave, which is simply the basic Latin rhythm. This basic beat is what holds all of the complex rhythmic patterns of Latin music in place.

The atheists in the Western World haven't really produced much, if any, fun/rhythmic songs. That is because Western atheism is dominated by atheist nerds. In addition, many atheists are depressed due to their bleak worldview (see: Atheism and suicide and Atheism and depression and Atheism, agnosticism and pessimism). Furthermore, atheists lean to the left politically (see: Atheism and politics) and secular leftists are frequently humorless killjoys (see: Atheism and humor).

The baby boomers experienced the greatest burst of prosperity the world ever experienced. With prosperity came pride/corruption. And pride comes before the fall. Great Depression 2.0 is coming. It is not a matter of if, but when.
The pushing of homosexuality/transgenderism might just be a blip on the radar screen and wane with a rise of religiosity/conservatism in our lifetime. On the other hand, maybe it is just a sign of mankind's corruption in the end times before the second coming.
Fundamentalist Christianity/Judaism/Islam (namely the fundamentalist Abrahamic religions) are against evolutionism/homosexuality/transgenderism. Because fundamentalists have more children within these religions, religious fundamentalism is expected to grow.
Already, we see evolutionism being essentially booted out of Israel/Turkey in terms of their school systems.
Pew Research indicates: "By 2055 to 2060, just 9% of all babies will be born to religiously unaffiliated women, while more than seven-in-ten will be born to either Muslims (36%) or Christians (35%)." In 2012, the W. Edwards Deming Institute published a report indicating that Christians/Muslims will make up about 66% of the world populations by 2100 (see: Religion and its projected increase in the 22nd century). Anyway you slice it, Abrahamic religion is going to have a big influence in the 21st century.
Homosexuality/transgenderism advocacy is likely going to have significantly less influence in the not to distant future.

My article Gay Christian Movement Watch has received over 60,450 page views. But the external link section was wrong as the website moved to being on a Wordpress subdomain.

I never noticed this matter because I rarely think of homosexuality. Generally, I only think about of the topic of homosexuality when the media mentions the subject.

One of the reasons I rarely think of the subject of homosexuality is the inoculation I received against homosexuality from the John Wayne movies I watched. :) "Fighting soldiers from the sky. Fearless men who jump and die. Men who mean just what they say. The brave men of the Green Beret."

"Son of Man" is a common mistranslation, preferred by liberals, which obscures Jesus's divinity. Jesus used an artful phrase to convey his divinity without committing the capital offense of blasphemy, which would have terminated His ministry before it completed.

A better English translation which conveys the divinity would be "The Son as Man." In other words, simply replace "of" with "as" to restore the intended implication of divinity, without committing blasphemy under the strict rules of the time. The versatility of "as" in modern English conveys the meaning of the awkward, unusual Greek phrase better than "of" does.

The use of the phrase in Mark 10:45 illustrates the flaws in the "Son of Man" and the superiority of the "Son as Man" as the English translation:

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve (NIV)
For even the Son as Man did not come to be served, but to serve

Like other aspects infinity, the concept of infinitesimal offers a powerful way to solve problems and even handle stress. Calculus advanced largely through an understanding and use of the infinitesimal.

The often-scarce resource of time, for example, becomes infinitely abundant if divided into infinitesimal segments.

Jesus introduced the concept of infinite time, or eternity, and infinitesimal time follows from that.

As of 2009, there was no fully conservative translation of the Bible which satisfies the following ten guidelines:[4]

Framework against Liberal Bias: providing a strong framework that enables a thought-for-thought translation without corruption by liberal bias. For example, the Living Bible translation has liberal evolutionary bias;[5] the widely used NIV translation has a pro-abortion bias.[6]
Not Emasculated: avoiding unisex, "gender inclusive" language, and other feminist distortions; preserve many references to the unborn child (the NIV deletes these)
Not Dumbed Down: not dumbing down the reading level, or diluting the intellectual force and logic of Christianity;[7] the NIV is written at only the 7th grade level[8]
Utilize Terms which better capture original intent: using powerful new conservative terms to capture better the original intent;[9] Defective translations use the word "comrade" three times as often as "volunteer"; similarly, updating words that have a change in meaning, such as "word", "peace", and "miracle".
Combat Harmful Addiction: combating addiction[10] by using modern terms for it, such as "gamble" rather than "cast lots";[11] using modern political terms, such as "register" rather than "enroll" for the census
Accept the Logic of Hell: applying logic with its full force and effect, as in not denying or downplaying the very real existence of Hell or the Devil.
Express Free Market Parables; explaining the numerous economic parables with their full free-market meaning
Exclude Later-Inserted Inauthentic Passages: excluding the interpolated passages that liberals commonly put their own spin on, such as the adulteress story
Credit Open-Mindedness of Disciples: crediting open-mindedness, often found in youngsters like the eyewitnesses Mark and John, the authors of two of the Gospels
Prefer Conciseness over Liberal Wordiness: preferring conciseness to the liberal style of high word-to-substance ratio; avoid compound negatives and unnecessary ambiguities.
Thus, a project began among editors at Conservapedia to translate the Bible in accordance with these principles. The translated Bible can be found here.

Benefits include:

mastery of the Bible, which is priceless
mastery of the English language, which is valuable
thorough understanding of the differences in Bible translations, particularly the historically important King James Version
benefiting from activity that no public school would ever allow; a Conservative Bible could become a text for public school courses
political issues can become a pathway to evangelizing liberals
liberals will oppose this effort, but they will have to read the Bible to criticize this, and that will open their minds
this project has a unifying effect on various Christian denominations, and serves as an important counterweight to liberal efforts to divide conservative candidates based on religion

Wave-particle duality, not discovered by scientists until the 20th century, is when something is sometimes a wave and sometimes a particle. Subatomic particles have wave-particle duality; so does light.

This is the same as God being a "wave" as the Holy Spirit, and also being matter in the form of Jesus. A open-minded appreciation of the wave-particle duality of the Trinity could have opened the eyes of scientists nearly 2000 years sooner to the fundamental wave-particle duality of nature discovered in the 1900s.

[...]

Even today a more open-minded recognition of the truth of the Trinity would help scientists understand the reality of wave-duality.

Negative implication is an underdeveloped concept of logic that the existence of +1, for example, implies the existence of -1. The existence of evil implies the existence of good, as an other example. The existence of the seen (the material) implies the existence of the unseen. And so on.

Negative implication is required by the fundamental uncertainty discovered in quantum mechanics and described in the Book of Genesis, because uncertainty about "A" requires the existence of "Not A."

The argument from desire is an argument for the existence of God. The argument was widely used by noted Christian apologist and author C. S. Lewis, and played a part in his conversion from atheism to Christianity.

The argument, as summarized by Peter Kreeft, can be expressed as follows:

1. Every natural, innate desire in us corresponds to some real object that can satisfy that desire.
2. But there exists in us a desire which nothing in time, nothing on earth, no creature can satisfy.
3. Therefore, there must exist something more than time, earth and creatures, which can satisfy this desire.
4. This something is what people call "God" and "life with God forever."

A distinction is made between the two different types of desire, the innate and externally conditioned, or natural and artificial. Natural desires, such as the desire for food, drink, or sleep, come from within us. They also exist in all of us, but the artificial ones vary from person to person.

C. S. Lewis summarized it in this way:

Creatures are not born with desires unless satisfaction for these desires exists. A baby feels hunger; well, there is such a thing as food. A duckling wants to swim; well, there is such a thing as water. Men feel sexual desire; well, there is such a thing as sex. If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world. - Mere Christianity, Bk. III, chap. 10.

Atheists and physical attractiveness

The English anthropologist Edward Dutton indicates that using right-wing politics as a proxy for religiosity, there is evidence that atheists are less attractive and he pointed out that right-wing politicians are more likely to have symmetrical faces according to a study.

The American contrarian blog Half Sigma declared:

...atheists are most likely to live alone.
This is not surprising. Atheists are less desirable...partners. I observed this once when I was living in Washington, DC, and I wandered by an atheist convention happening on the mall. The atheist were predominately male, and significantly uglier than average.

This is because ugly people become social outcasts, and social outcasts are more likely to be attracted to outcast movements like atheism, libertarianism, communism, etc.

Jay Fink writes:

If you are attractive and have a good social life you will generally not be interested in out of the mainstream groups or ideas. Why buck the status quo when it's working in your interests?

In the Western World, atheists have lower marriage rates (see: Atheism and marriage). In addition, compared to deeply religious cultures where an extended family and a sense of community often exists, secular countries are often lonelier societies (sSee: Atheism and loneliness).

The Audacious Epigone blog, which specializes in collecting data relative to stereotypes, writes about atheists having an above average propensity to live in single person households:

The low rates of multiple person households is part of the explanation, but the high number of lone wolves among their ranks illustrates their social marginality in another way relative to the cognitive endowments they enjoy. This does little to dispel stereotype I hold of atheists as cynical, single white guys who live in apartments downtown, work at used record stores, love George Carlin, and watch Adult Swim.

Matthew 16:19

King James Version:
And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Proposed Conservative Translation:
"And I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of heaven. Whatever you make binding on earth will be binding in heaven, and whatever you set loose on earth will be set loose in heaven."

Analysis:
Does this foretell the effect of the observer on eliminating uncertainty in quantum mechanics, which was not discovered until 2000 years later? Notice that the Greek literally says that whatever is bound on earth will have been bound in heaven, which is precisely the same unusual quasi-causation effect that an observer has in quantum mechanics.

Shakespeare and abortion

William Shakespeare's masterpiece play Hamlet contains implied references to an attempted abortion by taking abortifacients and the subsequently tragic fate of both the mother (Ophelia) and father (Hamlet). Multiple lines in the play are unmistakable in suggesting this,[1] yet liberals never mention this while teaching about Hamlet in public school.

Shakespeare's portrayal of the wealthy, privileged Ophelia and Hamlet as borderline crazy and suicidal may reflect his disapproval of abortion, and his belief that fate is not kind to those who embrace unapologetically that path and outlook. Shakespeare himself was a devout Christian.

Feminists generally identify with Ophelia as being a victim of men, and if she attempted an abortion then that would be lockstep with feminist ideology. But the unnecessarily tragic outcome awaiting Ophelia after making her immoral choices is something feminists tend to be in denial about.

Essay:Best Conservapedia insights about the Bible

On Conservapedia a growing list of insights about the Bible has been produced:

1. The Bible is 100% logical, without a single logical flaw in it. No other book comes close.
2. The Bible contains an immense amount of scientific foreknowledge.
3. The water did not turn into wine at the wedding at Cana until it was tasted, consistent with quantum mechanics. Precise versions of the Bible translate this sequence correctly: "When the master of the feast tasted the water now become wine."[1]
4. The "Son of Man" is a mistranslation: it should be "The Son, a man," as Jesus artfully implied that he was the Son of God during the early part of his ministry without committing the capital offense of blasphemy until his ministry was complete.
5. The perfectly written Epistle to the Hebrews is probably the "sermon" or monologue given by Jesus after the Resurrection when he met two travelers on the Road to Emmaus, as described in Luke 24:13-35.[2]
6. Paul warned against being misled by liberal claptrap and the passage at 1 Corinthians 1:17 should be translated that way.
7. Liberals are overly insistent on certain anti-Bible theories merely a way of pulling people, particularly students, away from the Bible.
8. The adulteress story is a phony insertion by liberals who quote it more than any other passage -- virtually all scholars confirm its lack of authenticity.
9. In the Calming of the Storm, a precise translation indicates that it was the observation or judging of the storm by Jesus, consistent with quantum mechanics, without any spoken words.
10. The greatest distortion of the Bible by modern liberal translations is their denial of Hell, even though Jesus talked more about Hell than about Heaven.
11. Genesis 1:2, properly translated, explains that God created order out of chaos, exactly as modern quantum mechanics describes with respect to an underlying uncertainty.
12. The many insights into physics (especially quantum mechanics and the Second Law of Thermodynamics) and mathematics (especially set theory) of the Bible, often overlooked or even lost in translation due to the dominance of a literary focus of biblical scholars rather than a scientific or logical one.
13. The immense value of utilizing, in translating the Bible, modern new conservative terms that have originated since the King James Version, since Strong's, and even since 1900 and 2000. Examples include "demonic", "gambling", and "liberal claptrap."

The Parable of the Vineyard Workers conveys truths about mathematical logic unknown at the time of Christ. In a mere sixteen verses at Matthew 20:1-16, Jesus explains surprising truths about infinity, zero, and set theory. It would take nearly 20 centuries before mathematicians caught up. [Emphasis added]

Only in set theory is it true that "the last will be first, and the first last," as stated by the conclusion of the parable. Outside of set theory that statement ostensibly appears to be false.

Only if infinity exists can a master pay everyone the same wage, no matter how hard or little they work. Infinity is synonymous with God.

The existence of infinity in turn implies the existence of zero, based on the inability to diminish infinity by anything more than zero. Zero -- the zero difference between the "wages" paid, and the jealousy that results -- is synonymous with the lack of God in this story.

A silver lining to the parable is how it demonstrates that communism can create more jealousy than capitalism does, through the jealousy of those who work less and yet get paid as much.

Infinity and zero are two intertwined opposites that can be played off each other logically in ways that seem paradoxical at first. They are related in that infinity can never be diminished or increased by more than zero, while zero is the result of making something infinitely small.

The Parable of the Vineyard Workers is perfectly logical but initially seems paradoxical. The master has infinite resources, and pays the workers the same wage no matter how much or little they work. This enrages the workers who toil longer, even though they were fully paid, because there is zero difference between their wages and that of workers who toiled little. Yet there is nothing for any of the workers to be angry about.

Neither infinity nor zero were accepted by thinkers at the time of Christ, and the parables did much to explain the logic of these two intertwined opposites. Shakespeare frequently used infinity in his plays.

Although negative numbers were not accepted by mathematicians until the 1600s, negative infinity is logically implied by the existence of Hell as described frequently in the Gospels. Also, the existence of an infinitely good God implies the existence of an infinitely bad evil that rejects God.

Negative infinity is difficult to define with independent terminology. Taking a cue from negative infinity as a representation of Hell, negative infinity is the lowest value possible.

Best arguments against homosexuality

The best arguments against homosexuality are as follows:

Top ten arguments

1. Homosexuality is unhealthy, and it's better to encourage people to adopt healthier lifestyles[1] See also: Homosexuality and health
2. It's not pro-life - it leads to various diseases, physical and psychological disorders and early death among those who practice homosexual behavior[2]
3. It's anti-Bible - no other conduct is condemned as much by the Bible as homosexuality[3]
4. It's infringing on more important freedoms, like freedom of religion and speech[4]
5. It's another Leftist political movement, which Communists support[5]
6. It's promoted far too much by the liberal media - if the lifestyle were good, then why would liberal censorship of criticism be necessary?
7. People should be (and have been) able to leave the lifestyle if they want to, so why are homosexuals working hard to ban conversion therapy?
8. Homosexuals are wealthier than heterosexuals, so homosexuals don't need any more handouts like benefits for same-sex couples
9. It's an anti-Christian movement - why aren't homosexual activists suing Muslim or Hindu bakers for not serving same-sex marriage?
10. It's a selfish movement - notice how billionaire homosexuals are not setting up hospitals as Christians have?

Additional arguments
image
A study by the Canadian government states that "violence was twice as common among homosexual couples compared with heterosexual couples".[6]

1. We should believe in real marriage instead. Homosexual men in so-called same-sex marriages generally engage in sexual relations outside their so-called marriages (see: Homosexuality and promiscuity). Homosexual couples have higher rates of domestic violence (see: Homosexual couples and domestic violence). Pathologists have indicated that homosexual homicides are quite common and leading pathologists have noted that homosexual homicides frequently display brutality/overkill (see: Homosexuality and murder).
2. Gay corruption has become too big of a problem in our country and elsewhere
3. There is no "gay gene" and studies of twins prove this, supporting the idea that it is a lifestyle choice
4. The homosexual agenda is the wrong direction for our country
5. Many horrific crimes have been committed by men caught up in the homosexual lifestyle; there are so many examples of this that listing them here would be futile
6. The homosexual lifestyle increases suicide rates by up to 400%
7. States and local communities should be deciding this, not a few liberal activist "justices" in D.C.
8. Churches have rights too
9. Disordered conduct is the wrong direction for individuals and our Nation
10. Ancient Romans committed many homosexual acts, and as a result for violating the Lord's wishes, the Lord struck down the decadent Empire of Rome, until the Christianization of the Roman Empire

(add to list)

1. This argument worries the Left. One hospital recently fired a physician for informing the public about the health risks of homosexuality.
2. Nothing the Left can do about this argument, which resonates well with the increasingly pro-life youth.
3. The Bible even condemns those who approve of homosexuality. See Romans 1:32.
4. The recent attacks on people of faith (like Kim Davis, Colorado baker Jack Phillips, former Atlanta fire chief Kelvan Cochran and Oregon bakers Aaron and Melissa Klein, among others) who oppose homosexuality and same-sex "marriage", which are either not reported in the mainstream media or get twisted to favor the liberal viewpoint when they are reported, bear this truth out.

Do you even deny that Tim Tebow was criticized more harshly, and more unfairly, than other quarterbacks? If you take your denial to that level, the loss in credibility will be complete. If, however, you admit that liberals criticized Tebow more harshly than others, then why do you deny it with respect to Gabby Douglas? Notice that you never provide an alternative plausible explanation for the unfair criticism of Douglas.

One of the largest challenges for Young Earth Creationists is providing a valid scientific explanation for the causes of the Great Flood.

The best known of the flood accounts is, firstly, the biblical account in Genesis, and secondly, the one found in the Gilgamesh Epic. Here is a summary of the Gilgamesh Epic:

The council of the gods decided to destroy mankind with a flood, but Utnapishtim was warned by the god who had made man, Ea, to build a boat to take all living beings. The length, width, and height were each 120 cubits (about 180 feet). It had seven stories.
The gods got frightened by the flood and retreated to heaven where they cowered and wept.
The flood lasted six days and seven nights, and was accompanied by wind and storm.
Utnapishtim send out a dove followed by a swallow, but both returned, unable to find land. He then sent a raven, which didn't return.
Dr. Jonathan Sarfati comments on the Gilgamesh Epic:

“ It is common to make legends out of historical events, but not history from legends. ... For instance, in Genesis, God’s judgment is just, he is patient with mankind for 120 years (Genesis 6:3), shows mercy to Noah, and is sovereign. Conversely, the gods in the Gilgamesh Epic are capricious and squabbling, cower at the Flood and are famished without humans to feed them sacrifices. That is, the human writers of the Gilgamesh Epic rewrote the true account, and made their gods in their own image.[8]

Big Science, also called mainstream science, is so-called science created to support an (often liberal) worldview. Big science is based on liberal censorship and deceit, and uses peer review and the "scientific" method to disparage conservative true science. Big science usually consists of liberal claptrap masquerading as science. Supporters of big science are often close minded and refuse to consider alternative views and reality.

Hallmarks of big science include:
*Support of the disproven idea that the world is warming due to human causes.
*Support of evolution.
*Support of a casual link between second hand smoke and health issues.
*Support of special relativity and moral relativism.
*Support of classifying homosexuality as a genetic trait.
*Obsessing over intelligent design.

Mystery:Why Do Non-Conservatives Exist?

Conservative principles are based on reason. So why do non-conservatives still exist? Here are some reasons:

Statistical Analysis
(Estimates)

20%: did not hear about conservative principles until after they made up their mind and, perhaps due to pervasive societal bias, refuse to reconsider
10%: genuinely lack of desire to find the truth, and instead desire attention, praise by liberal teachers, getting along by going along, and not standing up to liberal bullies
10%: refuse to forgive themselves and let go of their past mistakes and image
10%: believe myths created around government programs like the "New Deal" that liberal policies create jobs instead of destroying them and depriving people of liberty through government control.
10%: fooled by the demonizing of conservatives and mistakenly feel that conservative benefits are available only to those who are from an intact family or privileged background
10%: refuse to rise above their personal temptations, often self-destructive, and hate conservatives who criticize their self-indulgent behavior
10%: feel that they deserve to make more money than they do, as in public school teachers, university professors and scientists, and refuse to rise above self-interest
10%: harbor a grudge against a conservative, typically a parent but sometimes an ex-spouse, and refuse to forgive or rise above the animosity
5%: like an anarchist, genuinely want to believe in and propagate destructive ideas (Due to the tendency of non-conservatives to refuse to admit this even to themselves, this number could be much higher)

Mystery:What Percentage Go To Hell?

There is no doubt that Hell exists - Jesus talked about Hell more than Heaven. But what percentage go to Hell? It is certainly more than 0% and less than 100%, but where in between?

95% High enough such that it was impossible for Jesus to pick 12 Apostles without one of them eventually betraying Him.
90% Jesus emphasized how few would make it to Heaven, and personally set a very high standard.
80-90% Not everybody who goes to church or professes belief in Christ will go to Heaven, adding onto by the number of people who are overtly not Christian at all. Jesus's parable about not recognizing some who use his name reinforces this.
70% A high enough percentage to prevent conservative insights from being adopted more quickly by governments, and to allow injustices like abortion to continue.
66% The parable of the wheat and the chaff suggests that there is too much chaff (people headed for Hell) to pull up before harvest without displacing some of the wheat.
50% Many important issues split about 50/50, such as evolution, abortion and global warming.
34% Dante devotes 34% of his Divine Comedy to Hell, which seems about equally populated to Purgatory and Heaven. However, Dante only admits notable people to any of the three - "the futile" are not remembered and stay on the banks of Acheron.
0% The position held by the false doctrine of Universalism and technically by Annihilationism

[re: "Logic-based proof of God"]

Objective truth proof

1. Objective truth exists.
2. The existence of objective truth depends on the existence of an objective observer.
3. In the absence of an objective observer, the concept of objective truth would fail for lack of falsifiability.
4. The only possible objective observer for all of objective truth is God.
5. Therefore God exists.

Logic anarchy is the result of a belief that cannot serve as the foundation for a logical system.

In mathematics, logic anarchy occurs when there is a proof by contradiction. To prove the falsehood of a mathematical statement, this approach first assumes that it is true and then tries to build logical statements on it. Once the system collapses in an absurd contradiction, then the conclusion is that the assumption must be false rather than true.

Atheism is a belief that results in logic anarchy. To avoid that, freedom of speech is censored in all atheistic societies.

A logic-based proof of God demonstrates God's existence by reference to logic. This approach recognizes strong the connection between logic and God, and how the Bible can be understood as a book of logic.

Uniqueness of logic proof
The uniqueness of logic proof is as follows:

Logic is unique, such that contrary systems of logic are impossible.
The existence of God is logical.
Therefore God exists.

Uncertainty proof
The uncertainty proof is as follows:

Uncertainty pervades the physical world.
Logic is free of uncertainty.
Logic, therefore, does not come from the physical world.
Logic must come from something perpetual that is free of uncertainty.
This we call "God".

Prophet Not Welcome in His Hometown

The Jacksonsville Jaquars are one of the worst teams in the NFL, racking up horrific records of 2-14, 4-12, and 3-13, in 2012, 2013, and 2014, respectively. Yet they have been adamant in not giving hometown hero Tim Tebow a chance to quarterback the club, despite how Tebow has been given opportunities by better teams and despite how he led the Denver Broncos to playoff success.

The Bible predicts this odd phenomenon in Matthew 13:57, Mark 6:4, and Luke 4:24. For example, Mark 6:4 quotes Jesus as stating:[4]

“A prophet is not without honor, except in his hometown and among his relatives and in his own household."

Racist atheism is a particularly venomous form of atheism that can be extremely destructive both to the adherent and to those around him.

Hitler and Stalin were racist atheists who seized power and then slaughtered millions of people. Yet rather than acknowledge how morally evil racist atheism is, atheism refuses to condemn it as an affront to God.

Several, though not all, of the young mass murderers of the 21st century may have been influenced by racist atheism, and committed crimes based on it.

Statistical Analysis

(Estimates)

-20%: did not hear about conservative principles until after they made up their mind and, perhaps due to pervasive societal bias, refuse to reconsider

-10%: genuinely lack of desire to find the truth, and instead desire attention, praise by liberal teachers, getting along by going along, and not standing up to liberal bullies

-10%: refuse to forgive themselves and let go of their past mistakes and image

-10%: believe myths created around government programs like the "New Deal" that liberal policies create jobs instead of destroying them and depriving people of liberty through government control.

-10%: fooled by the demonizing of conservatives and mistakenly feel that conservative benefits are available only to those who are from an intact family or privileged background

-10%: refuse to rise above their personal temptations, often self-destructive, and hate conservatives who criticize their self-indulgent behavior

-10%: feel that they deserve to make more money than they do, as in public school teachers and university professors, and refuse to rise above self-interest

-10%: harbor a grudge against a conservative, typically a parent but sometimes an ex-spouse, and refuse to forgive or rise above the animosity

-5%: like an anarchist, genuinely want to believe in and propagate destructive ideas

-5%: are susceptible to marketing and suggestion to an overlarge degree.

What Triggers Reconsideration of Liberal Beliefs?

What triggers reconsideration of liberal beliefs? Here are some estimates:

-25%: raising or teaching children, and realizing how destructive liberal values are to many of them

-15%: a religious conversion followed by taking the Bible to heart

-10%: a loss of a loved one that resulted from accepting or promoting liberal values, as in losing a loved one to crime caused by pornography, drug addiction, gambling, etc.

-5%: taking a truthful course in economics, or learning it in the workforce[2]

-10%: other.

Cultural indoctrination

Brainwashing and deceit:

-They pride themselves on doing well in school or reading the newspaper, can't accept that what they were taught was incorrect or biased.

-Dangerous professors who impose their opinions upon vulnerable youth.

-Television programs posing as comedies, such as South Park, Family Guy, and The Simpsons, which inject liberal beliefs and mock conservative values

-Exposed to incorrect liberal ideas throughout education. Standard American kindergartens up to the fourth grade. Wastes the potential of most children—does not expose them to foreign languages and other learning tasks their minds are obviously and mysteriously suited for. All helping to make them think they need liberal man-made structures that in fact limit their potential in a self-defeating sort of cycle.

-Indoctrination by liberal churches which have a disproportionate focus on biblical passages that appear to support liberal positions, eg. the adulteress story, the disciples holding everything in common, etc.

-A blind obsession to be famous, act and imitate the ways of their famous idols, to absorb their ideals as their own.

-Failure to realize that modern science and modern wealth are the result of historical processes set into motion by God-fearing Christian Conservatives like Blaise Pascal, Robert Boyle, Isaac Newton, and James Maxwell. (When the obvious importance of Christianity to these scientific figures' everyday lives comes up in an academic situation, dangerous professors—liberal historians and liberal scientists—have been known to label it as "some mental disorder".)

-Elementary through high school textbooks having appalling and reprehensible omissions on the basic facts of American life (religion, marriage, politics, and business)[3]

-For decades Universities have discriminated against hiring conservatives, especially social conservatives and religious believers.[4] This has resulted in most college graduates being exposed to liberals prejudiced against conservatives and conservative thought. These graduates become the teachers and other professionals who are unwitting soldiers in liberalism's battle against a Christian Reformed, Roman-Catholic/Anglican/Orthodox, obedient-to-God reality.

No exposure:

-Current fashions in American professional behavior make expressions of Christian faith awkward in the workaday world.

-Increasing zone of publicly funded anti-religious fanaticism (e.g., no school-sponsored prayer)

-Spectacle of entertainment industry (e.g., movies and T.V.) cuts into traditionally popular Christian church social activities

-Most universities and hospitals have forgotten or have been forced to deny (to get various grants and even retirement benefits for their professors) their religious roots. Catholic affiliated institutions remain one of the few exceptions (few or possibly no other body of Christians can make legitimate claims of offering modern Pastoral care as the Roman Catholic church)

Peer Pressure:

-They have liberal friends, and want their approval or acceptance.

-They live in a predominantly liberal state or community and fear rejection from said community.

Systemic bias:

-Some people are inherently irrational, and are thus driven to liberal ideology.

-Their job and salary, such as working for public schools, depends on keeping conservatives out of power.

-Media bias acts to caricature conservatism, making it seem unpalatable, conditioning people to reject its teachings.

-Schools reward politically correct, liberal answers on tests.

-Negative focusing by the media highlights personal flaws of conservatives, driving people to choose to identify with liberals rather than be categorized with those traits.

Liberal characteristics

Poor abstract thinking:

-They have trouble understanding some of the slightly abstract concepts in conservatism, such as "more guns, less crime," and "less taxes, more revenue."

-They are more comfortable discussing simple issues like race and poverty than complex issues like globalism.

-Intellectual myopia - failure to heed the long-term consequences of ideological positions that seem beneficial in the short term.

-Stereotyping: They knew a conservative whom they disliked for some reason, and tar all others with the same brush.

-Ignorance: politics isn't a priority for some people. Without any wish to learn to think for themselves, some liberals don't bother to think through what's right, and just go with what's "cool."

Closed-minded:

-They made up their mind before hearing conservative principles, and will not reconsider their views.

-They have something criticized by conservatives in their personal background, and feel compelled to defend it rather than let it go.

-Slavish adherence to the ideals of liberal parents

Naivety:

-Non-conservatives demonstrate just how prone mankind is to arrogance.

-An admiration for historical figures whom liberals claim were liberals.

-A desire for large government inculcated by personal weakness and reluctance to take personal responsibility.

-Impressionable individuals buying into Bush derangement syndrome, and reacting with emotion rather than reason.

-Reliance on charisma: Charismatic leaders trading on image, rather than experience, can dupe the unsuspecting.

Self-destructive or contrarian behavior:

-Some choose to do what is irrational.
-Use of mind-altering drugs, which encourages one to become a liberal to reconcile the cognitive dissonance, or dulls mental acuity resulting in mindless conformity.

-Sexual experimentation to make up for lack of self-esteem, often with multiple partners, with partners of the same gender, or in public places

-Unthinking rebellion against conservative parents.

-Determined to prove their "independence of mind" by denying authority

Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) PG-13 Contains messages of patriotism, perseverance and standing up to evil dictators. The film's protagonist Steve Rogers is also arguably the most conservative superhero of the Avengers universe. Last film produced by Marvel Studios before it's takeover by liberal parent Disney.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) PG-13: Film about a hero who believes in the principles that the United States was founded on and is unwilling to see them be destroyed. The filmmakers based the villains of this film on the NSA and the Obama administration.

The Incredibles (2004) PG: The world's superheroes are forced to give up their heroics and go into hiding after Mr. Incredible saves a suicidal man as well as a derailed train from a bridge destroyed by one of his enemies (who ironically got away with it), causing the populace to turns on superheroes and lawyers to sue them.
The film celebrates the importance of the family unit; Elastigirl fails at parenting when her husband, Mr. Incredible, neglects to help her raise their children; a traditional family of superheroes is portrayed as the saviors of society, whose importance and presence has been unfairly suppressed. In addition, Mr. Incredible was also shown in the beginning to take marriage seriously, immediately heading over to the wedding when he realizes he may be running late, and doing various crime-stopping when he has time before it.

The movie also contains the conservative idea that recognition should be based on merit rather than on unsubstantiated expectations of equality. The villain, Syndrome, out of sheer jealousy, attempts to kill off real superheroes so that he use technology to pretend to be one, later planning to sell his gadgets so that everyone in the world can be super. "And when everyone is super," he explains, "no one will be." When Mr. Incredible is asked to attend his son's fifth-grade graduation, he criticizes society for "celebrating mediocrity" instead of those who are "genuinely exceptional."

Brandon Bostian was the 32-year-old Amtrak train engineer (driver) who was at the controls on May 12, 2015, when his northbound train accelerated sharply just prior to entering a curve at more than double the speed limit.[1] The train then derailed, killing eight people and injuring more than 200; four days after the crash, 17 passengers continued to be hospitalized.[2] Bostian himself was treated for injuries and released by a hospital the same day of the crash.
Bostian has been a homosexual activist in support of same-sex marriage, which may explain the media support for him after the crash. Bostian was quoted in 2012 as saying:[3]
“It’s kind of insulting to have to beg people for my right to marry. I feel like we shouldn’t even have to have this fight. ”
After the derailment, Bostian told investigators that he could not recall any of the facts surrounding the crash, although on the same day as the crash he did subsequently edit his Facebook profile to darken his image, and also spoke with a friend. Bostian was an expert on trains, with one friend saying he was "obsessed" with them.[4]
When Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter criticized Bostian, not by name, for the reckless speed, the media and the NTSB lashed back at ... Nutter. The media then published stories from friends of Bostian who praised him. The NTSB claimed that Bostian was "extremely cooperative" with the investigation, even though he asserted that he could not recall the circumstances of the crash. Mayor Nutter properly dismissed the theory, promoted by the media, than an unidentified flying object such as a rock may have caused the crash.[5]

Prior Public Statements about Trains
Bostian had publicly criticized the government for not installing technology on trains to prevent the same type of crash in which he participated. When asked about the curious fact that Bostian had made such comments, the lead investigator for the NTSB showed no interested in their evidentiary value.
Bostian retained an attorney quickly after the crash, and Bostian has not appeared in the media himself to explain the excessive speeding and his role in it.

Media Bias
As of six days after the massive crash, Wikipedia still lacked a substantive entry for Brandon Bostian. Meanwhile the liberal Daily Beast ran a headline claiming "How Congress Caused the Amtrak Crash."[6]

An attorney for several of the victims was more candid:[7]
“The conduct of the engineer is both unfathomable and unconscionable. ”

Secondary Education
In 2001, Bostian graduated from Bartlett High School, a public school in Tennessee.[4]

Atheistic science is an approach to science that clings to atheistic views of the universe and life, at the complete exclusion of Biblical scientific foreknowledge and non-materialistic phenomena. The hallmark of atheistic science is how it clings to materialistic theories and rejects logic and experimental observations that contradict the atheistic theories.

Examples of absurd beliefs of atheistic scientists:

* that remarkable migration by butterflies and birds can somehow be explained by magnetism
* that there are many "multiple universes" that simultaneously exist
* that time travel can occur through wormholes in the universe
* that intelligent extraterrestrial life exists outside of Earth
* that massive "black holes" exist in tiny spaces, from which not even light can escape
* that unseen "dark matter" permeates the universe
* that the universe is really comprised elastic strings

10 symptoms of Conservapedia obsessive compulsive disorder

Symptoms of Conservapedia obsessive compulsive disorder include, but are not limited to:

1. Feelings of intense anger, hatred, shame and humiliation associated with having one's worldview or aspects of one's worldview publicly shown to be in error. Among COCD suffers these three feelings often spiral out of control and often reinforce each other. Western atheists who have doubts about atheism and evolution are the most frequent suffers of COCD. In addition, gullible liberals who had fervently believed that Barack Obama and the "stimulus package" would bring about "hope and change" to the United States and to the world are more likely to be afflicted with COCD.

2. You fly into a fury when atheism is associated with clowns or when it is pointed out that the Richard Dawkins and the atheist community most certainly lacks machismo. In addition, you become very irate when the subjects of atheism and obesity, atheism and mass murder, atheism and suicide and atheism and deception are raised. Of course, the bitten dog yelps the loudest.

3. Spending long periods watching or meticulously pouring over the Conservapedia recent edit summary. Individuals afflicted with COCD often review Conservapedia's recent edit summary more than many Conservapedia administrators. Individuals with Severe Conservapedia obsessive compulsive disorder vigorously reject the heliocentrism and geocentrism astronomical models of the universe and argue that Conservapedia's recent changes log is the true center of the universe.

4. Begrudging conservative homeschoolers and conservative children at large to have a fun page provided for them that spoofs evolutionism.

5. Excessive preoccupation with discussing Conservapedia which often involves discussing the most trifling of details. Often this leads to having dreams about Conservapedia at night.

6. Obsessing over the total web page views of Conservapedia

7. Engaging in endless speculation concerning various administrators and editors of Conservapedia.

8. Repeated and frequent proclamations that Conservapedia's death is imminent or that it has died already (The reports of Conservapedia's imminent death or death are greatly exaggerated by liberal atheists. Liberal atheists can't bear for the world to see Conservapedia's atheism and evolution articles as they detail the many deceptions and foolishness associated with atheism).

9. Feelings of anger and resentment when the many medical maladies associated with homosexuality are pointed out through the medical literature.

10. Being upset that you have various trigger words and phrases that remind you of Conservapedia such as: machismo, autumn foliage, bunny hole, Keynesian economics, cowardice, clown, obesity, exercise science, bariatric science, kitty, nerd, summo wrestling, and Olé! Olé! Olé!.

10. Do you think that it is impossible for the speed of light to have been different in the past?
11. Do you think that it is impossible to measure openmindedness?
12. Do you think that evolution must have occurred?
13. Do you think that is impossible for the power of 2 in Newtonian gravity, whereby the gravitational force is proportional to 1/r2, to be more precise with an exponent that is slightly different from 2, such as a gravitational force proportional to 1/r2.00000001?
14. Do you resist admitting that some things taught to you in school are completely false, and even known to be false by some responsible for the material?
15. Do you deny that some widely required theories of science, such as the theory of evolution, may actually impede the progress of science?
16. Do you deny that the imposition of socialism and same-sex marriage on a nation could harm its competitiveness at international events like the Olympics?
17. Do you refuse to consider the possibility that "experts" may not have all the answers, and that the best of the public may have valuable insights to which experts are blind?
18. Do you think that if you read parts of the Bible years ago as a child, you can claim to "have read the Bible" and that you have no reason to read it regularly now?
19. Do you believe that because the Earth's orbit and rotation are what they are now, they are guaranteed to remain stable for billions of years?
20. Do you refuse to consider the possibility that Hebrews might have been authored by Jesus?

The above questions can be asked, and one's closed-mindedness can be scored based on how often they answered "yes" above. Answering more than half as "yes" reflects acute closed-mindedness.

He hated imperialism[1] and grew increasingly conservative, adopting and raising a child and becoming a member of the Church of England.[2] The tension between the conservative Orwell grew to become, and the democratic socialist he still allowed others to view him as, may account for some of his interesting word inventions like "doublethink".

10 telltale signs you are on your way to becoming a lonely atheist nerd


1. When you are at your girlfriend's house, you cannot stop scowling at her mother's pictures of Jesus. Please see: The atheist and evolutionist helpline.

2. You own more pocket protectors than shirts.

3. You tell your girlfriend that she is merely a result of blind random natural forces and there is nothing particularly special about her. Of course, this lets her know that you are an insensitive liar and she starts crying (see: Atheism and deception and Atheism and social intelligence).

4. American atheists are significantly less likely to get married than the general population and atheism is significantly less appealing to women. When you had problems finding a wife, you refused to consider the possibility that you could be the problem and instead blamed it on womankind.

5. You spend countless hours arguing with your girlfriend on the true definition of atheism and insist you are not diluting the definition of atheism given in most encyclopedias of philosophy.

6. You fly into an uncontrollable rage when your girlfriend brings up Shockofgod's question.

7. After your last girlfriend dumped you, you reminded yourself that you still have a lot of atheist subscribers at your YouTube atheism channel and your Reddit atheist friend list is quite large. In addition, your mother no longer believes you are going to get married.

8. You try to convince every woman you meet to visit atheists' websites. You do this because you are mad at Conservapedia for pointing out that the web traffic tracking companies Alexa and Quantcast indicate that a majority of web visitors to prominent atheists' websites are males (Please see: Atheism appears to be significantly less appealing to women).

9. You think Richard Dawkins has machismo or try to debate Conservapedians on the true definition of the word machismo despite the definitions the Merriam Webster dictionary offers.
See Atheism and marriageability !!!

10. Your girlfriend tells you that there needs to be better communication between you two so you buy her a Star Trek USB Communicator that will allow you two to "Stay connected Starfleet style" via Skype and IM programs. You also suggest that you and your girlfriend work on Wikipedia articles together.

Conservative terms, expressing conservative insights, originate at a faster rate and with higher quality than liberal terms do. Conservative triumph over liberalism is thus inevitable.

Each year the English language develops about a thousand new words. The King James Version of the Bible contains only about 8,000 different words; many good words have developed since.

Powerful new conservative terms have grown at a geometric rate, roughly doubling every century. For each new conservative term originating in the 1600s,there are two new terms originating in the 1700s, four new terms in the 1800s, and eight new terms in the 1900s, for a pattern of "1-2-4-8". This suggests that the future will be increasingly conservative.

Homosexual logic is the "logic" used to justify the Homosexual Agenda. Like liberal logic generally, homosexual logic relies on statements that appear to be logical but that are actually rife with logical fallacies. Examples include:
Calling things the opposite of what they are, e.g., justifying their special rights as just another form of equal protection.
Improperly shifting the burden of proof by asserting that homosexuality must be understood as not a choice until it is conclusively shown to be one.
Slippery slope arguments in which they argue that repression of homosexuality will lead to a series of bad results that actually will not follow or that have nothing to do with homosexuality.
Cherry-picking only those parts of the Bible that suit their purposes, while arguing that any parts of Scripture that are inconvenient to them need to be "interpreted" correctly or were "nailed to the Cross," or that just by mentioning them, you are "twisting" them in some unspecified way.
Taking it for granted that any book with a pro-homosexual slant must be true, rather than critically assessing whether that book is credible.
Appealing to majority will, but only when it suits them; switching back and forth between "This is what the people want" and "America is a republic, not a democracy."
Demanding that their own interpretation (or misinterpretation) of the Bible be made binding on everyone, despite the establishment clause.
Demanding limited government, but only when it suits them, while supporting government oppression of anyone they don't like.
Claiming to be persecuted when in reality it is they who are doing the persecuting.

A logical fallacy is an error in logical reasoning. While the common usage of the word fallacy would include any error in reasoning, in logic a fallacy is defined as a particularly deceptive argument which seems correct, but upon further examination is found to be incorrect.[1] The maker of such an argument, however, need not be aware of its fallacious nature.

[...]

Logical fallacies are the beloved debating tactic of liberals; for this reason, it is not advised to debate them unless you have to, as you will only end up frustrated when one of them inevitably claims global warming is true because Al Gore said so.

3 things many women don't like

Spiders, snakes and atheism! Most women do not like atheism! Like the serpent in the Garden of Eden, atheists are often deceptive (Please see atheism and deception).
In 2003, the inept atheist organization American Atheists picked a big hairy spider as the mascot of atheism in order to soften the image of atheism. American women's reaction? Eeww!
Meanwhile, pictures of the baby Jesus, pictures of Jesus holding lambs and pictures of Jesus surrounded by little children continue to melt women's hearts.

[I removed the following section:

In debates with atheists, the popular YouTube video maker Shockofgod often asks atheists, "Is God evil?". Invariably, so-called atheists quickly say yes. Then Shockofgod informs the "atheist" that they admitted that God exists. Shockofgod also declares that he never heard anyone accuse leprechauns of being evil.

My reasoning, as stated in the edit summary, was "leprechauns aren't evil, but Voldemort is, and he doesn't exist", the point being that something doesn't need to exist for you to describe it. Why, then, was my edit undone?]

Voldemort cannot be evil because he doesn't exist. "Nothing" cannot be evil. The fictional character Voldemort can only be portrayed as evil.

By the way, if a main justification for your worldview is the "leprechaun objection", it is time to abandon your worldview. Atheism is madness!

Faith and Science

Faith and logic are essential ingredients of real science and an informed understanding the world.

Faith, a Christian concept, accepts truth without requiring visible proof.

Logic guides the faculty of human reason to determine the truth. However, liberal logic may appear logical, but is actually nonsensical.

Science is based on observation in determining the truth. However, in recent years, science has become increasingly atheistic,[1] rejecting God and his works in explanations of the world and all of human experience. Instead readily embracing pseudo or junk science such as evolution, relativity, global warming and much of cosmology and geology based on a time frame which predates creation. Consequently the rigid logic of creation science is gaining in importance, enabling intelligent people to distinguish real science from atheistic secular junk science.

Atheistic science is riddled with self-contradictions. A few examples are:

• atheistic science denies the existence of the unseen, while simultaneously admitting that the entire universe began from the unseen.
• atheistic science promotes the implausible existence of black holes with a religious fervor. Disproved by quantum mechanics, black holes have been discredited most recently by Stephen Hawking, but atheistic science soldiers on in denial of basic logic.
• atheistic science has no plausible theory for the origin of the Moon, and the lunar landing disproved all of its prior theories.

Atheistic science predicts that earthquakes will be correlated with fault lines. That is simply not true, as many recent earthquakes (Napa Valley, Japan, etc.) have demonstrated. It would be fine if atheistic science admitted it doesn't know, but instead it claims it does know, but it is wrong.

Atheistic science also fails to explain the many examples of beauty in nature, including the blood moon.

Biblical scientific foreknowledge, meanwhile, is spectacular in its success.

"Atheistic science" is descriptive term for science that clings to materialistic explanations at the complete exclusion of biblical insights and phenomena not explainable by materialism. There may be Christians who pursue atheistic science as a way of getting a degree or putting food on the table.

The circular statement that "if there is a 6.0 earthquake in Napa, then it is on an active fault line" is not illuminating. A good theory, which goes beyond atheistic science, is needed to predict and explain earthquakes better.

A scientist is someone who practices science. Scientists who have tenure at universities, however, are often liberal atheists, as faculties today are hostile to people like Isaac Newton or Louis Pasteur who were inspired by their faith.

The coward in the liberal and atheistic state of Oregon was clearly afraid to step out of the bedroom.[23] And he could have showed the cat who is boss without injuring the cat simply by means of a commanding voice or smacking him around with some pillows if need be. But the 911 recording clearly shows, like many liberal men, he lacked a commanding voice! The cat definitely knew who was boss in that household and who was the biggest pussy. The cat was the boss in that household and the liberal "man" was the biggest pussy in that household!

Furthermore, he told the lady 911 operator that he was the woman's boyfriend. It came as no surprise that he was merely the woman's boyfriend and not her husband. And what real man calls a woman for help to protect himself, a woman, a child and the household dog against a common house cat!

And of course the cat was fat because liberals and/or atheists are often too indulgent and permissive their pets and often in regards to themselves. See: Atheism and obesity and Lesbianism and obesity. And in too many cases, when liberals and atheists do "love" their pets, it is an altogether inappropriate form of faux love and merely lust.

Ladies and gentlemen, FOX News is now a liberal news channel:

"The Fox News Channel heavily promotes RINO Backers -- commentators who may appear to be conservative but side with RINOs just when it matters most. Examples include Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Karl Rove, and Rush Limbaugh, who savaged Todd Akin for making a pro-life statement pointing out that pregnancy from rape is rare due to feminine biology. The Fox News Channel gave Karl Rove a platform to raise money against pro-life Republican candidates.
Even center-right pundit Sarah Palin is too conservative for Fox News Channel, as when it canceled some of her interviews at a key political moment in August 2012,[1] and then refused to renew her contract. And Fox News believes that the former guatemalan president Efraín Ríos Montt was a dictator.[2]"

In the story a mob surrounds a woman to stone her for adultery, and ask Jesus what they should do. Jesus is describing as writing in the ground, and eventually beseeches those who have not sinned to cast the first stone. The crowd then disperses, beginning with the eldest first. This apocryphal passage is a favorite of liberals who oppose those who stand up for Christian values, as when the left-leaning Bill O'Reilly cited this passage to criticize the star of Duck Dynasty for standing up against homosexual conduct.
