Purpose of being atheist for 4 years: Make everyone think I am really smart! Read all the cool science books and know lots. Capture people with my charisma, natural charm meanwhile I am still a nasty Wiccan underneath. Become polite and take up 0 space but all the while remaining a passionate Secularist. It was funny to be honest. My ex gave me the tools for this exercise, I didn’t choose them.
Someone who chooses Moral relativism and gets concussed without noticing does not have the capacity to understand things until they practiced them. That is autism. So I practiced being Secular. I went to the groups I talked about atheism and I learned. It is a nice story but it isn’t my Story. I am a Wiccan Merchant with Social Philanthropy features. You overstepped my boundaries so I stepped in to your shoes to learn your language. Has your wish come true? 🙂
I am sorry I slandered you entirely falsely. I am sorry I was a wolf in sheep’s clothing and I am sorry about the toxic thing that happens when a Marketer listens closely to his highly intelligent and over-opinionated ex.What would I need to know about Psychology as a Marketer? Only the stuff that adds to my own enigma. I didn’t think to protect every opinion and every debate in confidence… Partially because YOU PISSED ME OFF ABOUT MY FAITH!
You need to stay away please & thank you. Wiccan Spiritualists are of the crazy ex-boyfriend breed. To quote Bray Wyatt from WWE “RUN!”
We were Codependent you aren’t going to get anything nice from me.
Every book is a tool for me. Every notion of the sense of self a myth. My website is organic growth and it has been on a growing cult of personality among the creative. Just don’t come back, please. I wish you good fortune.
My brother went to Catholic School in High School. Apparently somewhat it was to study the management and creation of religion. We wanted to create a culture that again was LGBT+ Progressive. Pluralist & inclusive. (We may have radicalized ourselves somewhat but we are hippies) I am reading…
“The first use of the term recorded in the Oxford English Dictionary was by philosopher and social theorist Alain Locke in 1924 to describe Robert Lowie’s “extreme cultural relativism”, found in the latter’s 1917 book Culture and Ethnology. The term became common among anthropologists after Boas’ death in 1942, to express their synthesis of a number of ideas Boas had developed.” From the video description of Cultural Relativism linked above.
However, the practice of Wiccan activities is relaxing. Wiccans also share strategies and rituals to be adopted by others. I feel like an intellectual I can contribute and participate. Also in participating in this culture it is a lot better than sitting around and doing nothing.
Rhetoric: I was smoking with my brother in a circle like we normally would. He let me know that he wanted me to embrace my new found passion for Socialism but he said “Make Wicca your subculture.” You know what? I am enjoying the traditions of Inteligensia but why not add some Wicca for happiness?
Why Capitalism isn’t compatible? We don’t pay for this. We participate in these practices as a community & importantly as a family. perceptually the practice of paid-for Wicca in exchange for a show is entertainment and should be morally viewed as such. This practice would have tainted the tribes that contributed to the early collaborative works of Wicca. There is a real-life history of our practices. Wicca was officially created in the United Kingdom.
Are we communal? Only when we opt to live together in a first-world style family. It is important to mention “family” to us is not defined by blood. It is defined through spiritual connections and collaborations. Also like most other people in the world I have the resiliency of a son of divorce. (Divorce really is treated like a bigger deal than it ought to be.) The misery of divorce from a Utilitarian standpoint for me means that I only practice common law marriage.
It is hard to firmly set one’s philosophy and culture into words. However, I did like the aspect of the challenge from a language execution perspective. I have found the dismissiveness among atheists to Wiccans very insulting. If we use a physics model of observed reality I am an atheist. However, if we use the model of Social Media culture…. I am not! I am a Pluralist and that means I support someone’s right to faith.
“Don’t you know right from wrong!?” Anyone who was raised by parents who tried to raise them intellectuals has had this conversation multiple times. Some of us in Quinte West even began flipping the switch. Or just leaving Quinte West as a kind of morally deprived place with an out of control capitalism.
“Don’t you know that Capitalism isn’t the sum total of morality?”
From a historical context. The abandonment of morality and ethics is associated with the worst atrocities in human history. Fredrick Nietzsche preached immorality. His ideas were adopted by the Nazis. It was said that the abandonment of morality is what leads to fascism. As I have stated my love for joining a Secular Pluralist culture is what lead to me dating a fascist. Someone to indulged perverse desires and saw morality as subjective and paradigm. Also, all religions somehow manifested as a mass adapted mental illness. (Beliefs straight out of failed secular states with radical systems.) We have to find a way to trust protective structures like Political beliefs & religions. “Too much order, too much chaos.” Jordan Peterson.
So when another atheist comes up to me. Imagine hypothetically They just switched to atheism. The first thing I try to do with a new atheist is test if they are serious. Talk about issues grounded in reality with them. If they are serious about atheism we will find a way to talk about science, art, or politics. If they aren’t serious about atheism what you will get is nihilism and the abandonment of morality. That is something I will label every time because it is bad and it manifests into destructive & perverse behaviors. I will warn a friend that this is consistent with mental illness and I think they should deal with it.
The solution to chaos & malevolence is to confront it within reason. You want to use concepts of justice within reason and fairness.
