double binds | narcissistic ‘no-win’ mind games
This is a gem for the @Atheists in the open #forum. It's hard to notice how frequently you are caught in these traps until you hear him map out some examples.

TheraminTrees is a wonderful contributor.

Can Christianity Save Western Civilization?
(Betteridge's law of headlines applies to the subject posed above)

For some #Atheists the content covered by DarkMatter2525 is old-hat; hashtag :yawn. The video at the bottom is his, the video on the top was what made him want to do it.


Rediscovering Faith: My Journey Back To Christianity



Can Christianity Save Western Civilization?



Time travel Jump-links to specific concepts:

Note: if you pass through from here to the YouTUBE site, his expanded video description section has all the documentation backing up what he says in this one.

If you want the long-form version of his response video where he plays the content of the top video above as he responds to it, he did post it; Christian Nationalism is a Bad Idea

This is a brilliant video. It gets at the core of so many of today's problems with #Relationships, competing group dynamics, #Religious intolerance, and so many more societal maladies. You can see it fit nicely onto #HateGroups from ordinary #Bigots all the way to #MassMurderers by #NeoNazis or other #WhiteSupremicy groups.

YANSS 157 – The psychology behind why people don’t speak out against, and even defend, norms they secretly despise
This is an amazing #Podcast about how and why we get stuck in #GroupThink. Theirs a new buzz going around about #FreeSpeech but from the point of view of, "you're #Censoring me!" This podcast is focused on the, "why am I censoring me?" We are doing it because we don't realize that a majority of us think contrary to the incorrect conventional wisdom of the day, but we fear speaking out because we don't have evidence to support our silent dissenting thoughts are in the majority view, especially not within whatever our current social group is. People who might agree with you in private can't risk defiance of the group's thinking in public, so they will not be an ally. This makes us in aggregate doomed to stick with terrible ideas till enough catastrophy happens to the established leaders and the spell gets broken.

A Tower That Reaches The Heavens
If you appreciate cheeky things to say to annoy your #Priest, #Nun, #Sunday #School #Teacher, #Deacon, #Rabbi, #Preacher, maybe even #Imam, etc., then this story is for you.
Spoiler Alert
Click to open/closeIt hinges on the premise of the #Tower of #Babylon. If #God got his panties in a bunch over a 300-foot tall building, why not stop us from skyscrapers, space travel, Google Translate?

The show is a more playful romp than, "can God make a rock so big even he can't pick it up?"

Based on what is written in Numbers 5:11-31 it would appear that God doesn't believe killing of the unborn is wrong, so why do Christians?

I would appreciate your thoughts on what I wrote. It does seem that we are preaching to the choir so to speak
