Delineating Humans And Apes

So a lady on here recently asked how I dilineate humans from apes and I wrote a rather long response which I’m decently proud of and don’t want to waste. As such I’m going to share it as a myTake to see what y’all think, and for easier access in the future if I need it. *Before I go further I...

So What About The Trans Folks

@roaring20sman recently asked a question about gender identity and the same day I had seen quite a few questions about transgender people so I figured I'd write this myTake to cover most of the frequently asked questions I've seen about this topic. What Is Gender? Gender is the social and...

The Democrats Are Moving Further Left

In this question I asked yesterday Is Now The Time For A Third Political Party To Rise In The US? I apparently made a pretty controversial statement that was called out by quite a few people like @linds34 @Kalinka_ and @goaded so I thought I'd briefly address it in a myTake. The controversial...

My Experience Working In A Psychiatric Facility

I've seen a few questions lately about psychiatric facilities and figured I'd just write my own Take about my experiences in one. I worked in a locked-door psychiatric facility for a year before I moved across the country and I figured that there were some things I should point out that seems to...

General Outline Of The Abrahamic Faiths

@aaronbw recently asked a question about the relationship between the various Abrahamic faiths here Need opinions on a discussion I had? I've seen this question enough to warrant writing a myTake about it so I can just link to it in the future. As this will be used for a wide array of...

Does Feminism Remove Women's Agency/ Infantilize Them?

So this was originally going to be a question, but my description was too long so I'm just moving it here, but I'm interested in hearing y'alls opinions. It's still a question, not an assertion of my position. I'm currently listening to a fellow who is making the argument that feminism today...

The Contradictions In Saul & David's Tale

Some of the discussions I've been having lately have revolved around contradictions in the Bible, and my recent go-to has been the contradictions in 1 Samuel 16-18. If I extended this a few chapters I could bring in a few more contradictions, but for sake of ease I'm just going to cover two...

I Will No Longer Identify As A Feminist

Why? It's really pretty easy. I don't think that by-and-large the modern feminist movement properly represents my values and as such I don't want to identify with it. My views have remained the same, I've always thought that disadvantaging people for arbitrary characteristics is both stupid and...

My Recent Involvement With US Police, And Why I Won't Answer Questions Again

I've talked with a few individuals on here about my recent experiences with the American justice system due to an ongoing investigation about my DUI. I decided to write a myTake about it to simply share my experiences. Love it, hate it, be interested, be ambivalent, do whatever. That said I'm...

Noah's Ark, The Untenable Proposition

@Gord777 recently asked Did you know that Science (Knowledge) Only Proves what the Bible Teaches and has been teaching for thousands of years? in which one of the examples he gave was about the dimensions of Noah's Ark, and I decided to write my first myTake in a while to expound upon my views...

Why The Fermi Paradox Doesn't Make Sense To Me

@theflash675 and I were talking on this site a little bit after my response to a question, "Do You Believe In Aliens". I brought up the Drake Equation supporting the hypothesis that it is likely life exists somewhere outside our planet. In response he brought up the Fermi Paradox and that gave...

Why This Atheist Cares About Religious Discussion

I see this question becoming more and more frequent on this site,and as such I've just been copy-pasting the same answer on all of them, but I figured I could flesh the ideas out a little better here and then just link here every time I see the question in the future instead. So, the first...

Bodily Rights and Abortion

Questions regarding abortion are strangely incredibly frequent on this site. As with some of my other myTakes this one is intended to give my response to some of the more frequent questions so I don't have to consistently write the same thing and can instead just link here in the future. I was...

Creationism V Evolution

I've been conversing with a few fellows on here about evolution and in conjunction with my old beliefs I figured I should write about some frequent questions on the subject. I am not a biologist and highly recommend that you look into the research and science on it yourself, as well as, correct...

Hitler a Pantheist, Christian, Atheist. Oh My!

The question of Hitler's religious beliefs frequently comes up in debates and discussions with each side claiming that the other is Hitler-like and pointing to various quotes and books on each side claiming that Hitler is an atheist, a pantheist, and a christian. This gets silly and of course is...

Why The Evidence For Jesus Hasn't Convinced Me, Yet

I have heard quite a few questions about Jesus lately, and always respond that I'm not convinced of the fellows existence to the consternation of many. I've thought about writing a little myTake about this a lot lately but kept putting it off. I finally finished reading through Dr. Carrier's...

The Research On Prayer

Most religions around the world laud the efficacy of intercessory prayer. "And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it." "When you ask (for anything), ask it from Allah, and if you seek...

Trump/Russia Timeline Thus Far

I'm going to try my best to stay impartial and just discuss how things are going thus far. I've been listening to a bunch of the "testimonies" as of late and figured I'd put this out there so that we could clear up some confusion that people have been having. I'll try to focus on the highlights,...
