[Charania] Durant and Irving never connected with Atkinson and there was a growing belief that they did not have interest in playing for him when [the Nets were] whole again next season, sources told The Athletic.

Full context from Shams’ latest Athletic piece:

>[Durant] and one-time world champion Irving lifted Brooklyn into super-team status last summer by choosing to join forces there, Irving as a free-agent and Durant through a sign-and trade from Golden State, which failed to get him to stay. Jordan was part of the Durant/Irving package deal, with the three agreeing via a FaceTime call around 4 a.m. on the opening day of free agency to take their services to Brooklyn.

>Durant and Irving never connected with Atkinson and there was a growing belief that they did not have interest in playing for him when this team is whole again next season, sources told The Athletic.

>It was not limited to just Durant and Irving, though. Several other players are also said to have begun disconnecting with Atkinson.

If people are going to call people by their preferred pronouns to respect their gender identity, they should also respect religious beliefs by not using derogatory terms like β€œJesus Christ!” and similar phrases.

People these days especially on Reddit are very respectful to gender identity and diversity, which I’m all for, but it seems hypocritical when they go around and use phrases like β€œJesus Christ!” in a derogatory way. If you’re going to respect people’s pronouns, you might as well respect their religious beliefs while you’re at it.

Edit: To be clear, it’s not like I want to ban the use of the phrase altogether. All I’m trying to say is that, like with pronouns, if someone around you asks you to change your language when you’re around them, it’s the right thing to do to respect that.

The fact that the church is rich goes against literally all of their beliefs

If you read the tale of the Good Samaritan then you will notice that there are specific words that are simply not what the church does.

β€œHe saw the man in pain and took him to an inn and gave the innkeeper everything he had to help the man. He did this not because he could gain something, but because the man was his neighbour.”

That is the opposite of what the church does. And what’s worse is that they can convince people they help by donating money occasionally (see that they cleared ~45m in medical debt) but considering how much money they have they are being cruel.

An estimate of the wealth of the church (I use that as a general term for all Christ churches) is over 8 billion with the Vatican having β€œunknown wealth” (that is also illegal). They have donated 140 million. That’s just wrong.

The church can eradicate world hunger if they wanted to and yet they must hold all the money they make! They also refuse to be taxed!

AITA for cutting my niece’s tuition after she adopted some offensive beliefs?

This one needs a little background. I (40sF) have two younger brothers. We were raised in a very conservative Christian home (think early evangelical movement). My brother β€œSam” was pretty obviously gay, but he had a lot of shame and forced himself to marry a woman from church. They had my niece (now 19F). Unfortunately, my brother made some bad choices, and he developed a drug habit which caused him to OD when my niece was four. Our parents are now deceased, and my other brother is career military and gone a lot. I’ve done the best of my siblings, and I have a well paying job and plenty of savings. I have no children.

Because of these circumstances, we (my SIL, niece, brother, and I) are a very close knit family. I’ve always helped my SIL financially here and there, and I’m paying my niece’s tuition at a state university. She’s a good student, and I’m happy to relieve the burden on her mom.

Imagine thinking your religious beliefs are soooo important that you should get to wake up the whole neighborhood at 8:30 am on a Sunday

I'm just bitter about loud church bells waking me up every Sunday for months now. There are a lot of churches within a few blocks of my place, so I don't even know which one is the problem. It's only 30-60 min before I'd normally wake up on the weekend, but losing sleep on one of my two days off is extremely annoying. Once I wake up to something like that, I generally can't fall back asleep. I guess ear plugs would be the obvious solution, but that tiny sign of Christian entitlement annoys me.

Christians cannot be Pro-Life and remain logically consistent with other Biblical beliefs.

Let's start with the definition of abortion:

the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy.

Abortion, as described in the Bible in Numbers 5 11-31, is a ritual not only condoned by god but commanded. I'm not going to bloat my post with the full text, because it can easily be read in your Bibles or with a Google search since the book, chapter, and verses are supplied here.

The Bible doesn't say anything about condemning abortions, but it does infact command an abortion, or "intentional miscarriage", if the husband is jealous and suspects his wife of cheating on him but has no proof.

Now, the Bible does specifically say that it's a priest. So what if a doctor became a priest and accepted the offerings described in the Bible. Would Pro-lifers be okay with abortions that are performed the same way that their god commanded them to be performed?

How can a Christian be Pro-Life while remaining logically consistent with a

Full context:

> Throughout the Kings’ pre-draft process in 2018, the Kings scouted Doncic heavily, including a dinner with the young prodigy led by Ranadive that also included Vivek’s son, Aneel, and Divac; the gathering was shared on Aneel’s social media. There was ownership support for the drafting of Doncic at No. 2 overall, but Divac, along with then-assistant general manager Brandon Williams and Stojakovic had concerns about his upside compared to Bagley’s, sources said. As The Athletic reported last month, the belief that Doncic’s ball-dominance would limit Fox’s ability to grow and that they were better suited pairing him with a talented big like Bagley were driving forces behind the decision.

Freedom of expression and engaging in rigorous debate (and ridicule) is the best tool against ideas we may see as regressive

I'm sure many here have heard it before: Censorship acts to shield 'bad' beliefs from criticism, while the unenforceable aspects of censorship keep the belief alive. You can stop the crowd in the public square hearing the nazi, you can't stop the nazis having a private BBQ. Only one of those scenarios includes a possible level of dissent against their views.

Also, the general public needs a constant reminder as to why these beliefs are bad. If we don't have a living exmaple, if we don't have a consistent push-back in response to real attempts to legitimise the ideologies, we forget why they are held in the regard they are.

Charisma is a result of living rightly, in alignment with your values & beliefs.Once you begin living in a way you know is right, it’ll become 10x easier to be funny, charming, & likable. People like people who like themselves.Charisma is an inevitable trait of a person confident with their actions

A guilty conscience kills charisma. When you know what you’re doing is wrong, people can always see it in your eyes and actions; in fact, your mind sometimes even subconsciously sabotages your actions because deep down, you know it’s wrong.

However, when you know what you’re doing is good and right and true, it’s easy to be charming and attractive. It’s one thing to trick and seduce someone into liking you β€” it’s another thing to be genuinely interested in what someone has to say, using natural chemistry and letting them know they have your full attention.

A fundamental virtue of being charismatic is living in alignment with your values. Not being you will destroy you β€” being fully yourself allows you to create a deep connection with anyone.

Contrary to popular belief, charisma and confidence is not an innate gift some people have and some people don’t. As motivational speaker David Schwartz once wrote about: β€œAll confidence is acquired, developed. No one is born with confidence. T

Self love is the core of all happiness Looking for happiness from outside of yourself is void of purpose. After all, the only thing that matters in this world is you. Your perception, your universe is the one and only thing that affects you. By this logic, to build the best life you can you must start with your self. To love yourself is to love the universe. You are only an extension of nature anyways. A consciousness evolved to be aware of itself. By loving yourself, you love all emotions and thoughts that you have. And so you love all of the actions you might take. Actions that will be done out of love. And you will recognize these things inside yourself in others. You will love these things the most in others. They will love these things most in you. You will appreciate all that life offers and takes from you. Just love yourself.

First of all, I love my bf whom I have been with for the last 2 yrs, we get along so well and have plans long term to marry and grow old together. The only friction in our couple and source of the rare arguments we have is his possessiveness where my nudity (or semi nudity) is concerned.

I've been listening to a lot of NPR Podcasts lately. I was recommended Throughline - a Podcast where the hosts go back in history to understand current hot-button topics.

One of their episodes tracks the origins of the Evangelical movement in the US. It's a fascinating tale of how the movement took hold in the US and how they ended up becoming such a dominant political force.

In short - it wasn’t until 1979β€”a full six years after Roeβ€”that evangelical leaders, at the behest of conservative activist Paul Weyrich, seized on abortion as a rallying-cry to deny President Jimmy Carter a second term. They did this because the anti-abortion crusade was more palatable than their real motive - protecting their segregated schools.

In fact, the Southern Baptist Convention actually passed resolutions in 1971, 1974 and 1976 (three years after Roe v. Wade) affirming the idea that women shou

I'm respectful of others' religion. Why aren't they respectful of my personal beliefs?

I'm not religious, but I don't care if others are. It's none of my business, and I've never tried to de-convert anyone.

But I do have a personal philosophy: I'm a pessimist, in the vein of philosophers like Schopenhauer & Zapffe. It's not a supernatural belief system, but it is foundational to my personal outlook, and it helps guide my decisions about relationships and procreation.

I usually hide my beliefs, but occasionally I'll divulge them to a particularly curious acquaintance. To my astonishment, some people will freely attack my beliefs. I'm not talking about genuine curiosity, but argumentative skepticism. Their tone can be incredulous, even belittling. I've become even more private, because it pisses me off and I'd rather avoid unnecessary confrontation.

I find this incredible. I would never, ever interrogate someone on their belief system, be it astrology or theism. I even avoid asking questions so that I don't inadvertently offend someone. It's basic human decency not

If you do not question your religious beliefs and understand how/why you believe the way you do then you are a victim of indoctrination and lack basic intelligence and critical thinking abilities.

I expect this to get a lot of downvotes and my inbox to receive hateful messages in my inbox but ANYWAYS here we go.

The title says all. All religious people (not spiritual), who go to a temple/church/place of worship regularly who blindly follow a religion because "they were raised that way" and do not reflect why or how they believe in their faith lack intelligence and critical thinking abilities. These people are victims of indoctrination.

Let me provide you an example with Christianity because that is the religion I have the most comprehension with. Many people where I live are Christian because "they were raised that way." When I ask them about the Bible they don't really understand what it says or are able to quote it for me other than the usual Jesus speech about being a savior or whatever along with heaven/hell ideas. They often tell me, "other [non-Christians] religions are wrong." When I ask them why, I usually get "it just is." If you truly believe in your faith, you ne

Your religious belief and abortion position

If your religious belief--the doctrinal teaching of your faith community--were different with respect to abortion, do you think your own position would be different? Are you seizing upon debate points as after-the-fact justification for a position that would be the same no matter what, because of authoritative doctrine?

β€œDoublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.” ― George Orwell, 1984

"The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function" - F Scott Fitzgerald

β€œWhereas literalists and fundamentalists tend to choose one pole of any dilemma or opposition, whereas modern political parties and religious groups tend towards demonizing each other, the creative individual must be born again and again in the crucible created by the tension between opposing instincts, conflicted feelings, and contrasting ideas.” ― Michael Meade

"This function of mediation between the opposites I have termed the transcendent function, by which I mean nothing mysterious, but merely a combined function of conscious and unconscious elements, or, as in mathematics, a common function of real and imaginary qualities." - Carl Jung

"There is no consciousness without discrimination of opposites." – Carl Jung.

Teaching children that they will go to heaven or hell based on their beliefs and behavior is literal child abuse

Instilling ancient myths in children as if they were representative of reality is bad enough. But teaching them that they'll go to heaven if they're good little boys and girls, but that their friends are gonna burn in hell for being born into a different religion? Telling them that, if they don't toe the line the invisible man laid down, they're gonna be tortured for eternity? That is psychological abuse.

The belief that anyone deserves to go to hell is already disgustingly immoral, but it's made far worse when the brainwashing starts young and traps kids, often times for the rest of their lives, in some sort of deistic Stockholm Syndrome.

Edit: it's hilarious how many people are claiming that this isn't an unpopular opinion when practically everyone in the comment section is flaming me right now.

Two quotes that really hit me as full of truth and devastating to my belief that the LDS church is true.

β€œIt is customary to blame secular science and anti-religious philosophy for the eclipse of religion in modern society. It would be more honest to blame religion for its own defeats. Religion declined not because it was refuted, but because it became irrelevant, dull, oppressive, insipid. When faith is completely replaced by creed, worship by discipline, love by habit; when the crisis of today is ignored because of the splendor of the past; when faith becomes an heirloom rather than a living fountain; when religion speaks only in the name of authority rather than with the voice of compassion--its message becomes meaningless.” ― Abraham Joshua Heschel, God in Search of Man: A Philosophy of Judaism

Having thoughts like "I must not even think about that" is a sign that something is very wrong about your belief system

I've talked to several ex-believers who describe once having "forbidden" thoughts that their religion did not allow them to think

When I talk to Christians online, it has become abundantly clear that they are either not allowed to think that their god has done anything wrong ever, or that they are not allowed to confess that to outsiders.

I think most people can agree that some people will go to absurd lengths to defend a point of view:

  • Rather than god being wrong, it's the context that is not being considered.

  • Rather than god being wrong, you must instead interpret the text to mean something else than a plain reading.

  • Rather than god being wrong, he's actually right: god doing things that any other being would be considered evil for does not matter for god is outside of his own rules.

  • Rather than god being wrong, might makes right.

Contrary to Popular Belief... (Spoilers Extended)

There are numerous quotes, tidbits, etc. floating around out there that are constantly thought to be said by GRRM or just about ASOIAF that just aren't true, or have been misattributed.

I thought it would be interesting to come up with as many "false facts" about ASOIAF as possible.


Rhaegar isn't the "Hero of the Story"

I've often heard people state that GRRM said that its "hard to write a story when the hero has been dead for 20 years" or something along those lines. I have yet to see any quote that states something along these lines.

Quotes like this (not by GRRM) are the closest I have been able to find.

I move in a few days, so I’ve been trying to pack things. Up until this moment, I’ve been think about how I’m barely gonna have anything to move. I moved back in with my parents after college, and most of the furniture is theirs. I don’t have many clothes or so I thought. I don’t have many books or so I thought. I just can’t believe how many trinkets and tools and cables and whatever else I have that I almost never use on a daily basis. I feel bad throwing it away, and it’s not good enough condition to donate. It’s just so much junk. I’ve got a portable DVD player. An old MP3 player. A bottle of Old English. Cables to who knows what. A broken tuner. Old shoes. Random pennies everywhere. Hats I never wear. A lunchbox. CDs. An old map. Is some of this stuff valuable? Maybe. Just so many things I don’t want.

Anyways, any encouragement is appreciated.

Rational embrace of woo? (A question of practice vs. belief)

Some recent discussions got me thinking about this:

There are activities typically associated with β€œwoo” that nonetheless can provide some pretty mind-blowing experiences. Examples that I have personal experience with are:

  • playing with crystals and other gems
  • chanting in various forms
  • ritual activities such as lighting of candles, manipulating β€œsacred” (interesting trinkets) objects
  • tarot cards

The list could go on. Meditation and breathing exercises too although I think it’s well accepted that there are scientifically demonstrated benefits to these. Still they often get smeared with woo-paint.

The way I see it there is no necessary conflict between doing these things to have novel, oftentimes bizarre and eye opening experiences, and being essentially a skeptic.

I do not believe crystals can cure anything or have magic power. However I once felt like I saw into another universe made of wonderful light while looking into one and wept because it was so beautiful.

Are the Aedra tangible gods who exist outside belief structure?

This is probably a question with an obvious answer because it's so integral to the cosmology of TES, but I just can't wrap my head around the in-game lore.

There're the Aedric gods like Akatosh, then there're the various cultural pantheons which personify these gods, such as the Aldmer, the Nords, the Khajiits etc.

Yet, the Aedra physically appear before mortals, not often, but they do appear. Their appearances very distinctly tie to the specific creation of Nirn stemming from Lorkhan's alleged trickery, Magnus aborting the project halfway, the Magna-Ge following suit and the remaining Aedric spirits agreeing to see the project through despite their supposed deception.

As far as I can tell *this actually happened* in-universe. There really *was* a Lorkhan, there really *is* a giant hole in the Mundus which allows magic to enter Nirn, there really *is* a cabal of spirits calling themselves the Aedra.

So how do the Aldmer, the Nords, the Khajiit and even cul

"Von Liebenfels argued that that the Aryan people were intentionally bred via electricity by interstellar deities called Theozoa, while the other races were the result of interbreeding between humanity and ape-men. According to Liebenfels, gradual interbreeding had robbed the Aryans of their magical powers. Liebenfels would also circulate a magazine called Ostara based on these beliefs, whose readership included a young Adolf Hitler.

In addition to embracing these occult ideas, the Thule Society also believed that a proto-Aryan race lived on the island of Thule, a mythological northern island that is probably more familiar by its alterna

If I was born 5,000 miles away in China I would be meditating daily to achieve enlightenment. Even here in America depending on what state I live in would be acceptable to have multiple wives but since Christianity is the main religion I’m suppose to believe that Jesus is the only way I can be save for the afterlife.
