Hey all,

I recently deleted my Facebook account because I couldn't stand the stupidity and ignorance.  I do miss the God "debate" I regularly seemed to be drawn into :-)  I was stumbling through the Tapatalk app (member of THC Talk) and was please to see this group so, here I am.  I consider myself a social liberal and a fiscal conservative.  I am a medical cannabis patient but not a stoner.  I grow High CBD cannabis as a hobby, hence my user name :-) 

I am an open atheist from Eastern Canada.  I detest religion of any kind and truly believe the world would be a better place without it.  I was raised in a devout Baptist family going to church 3 times a week.  I can never remember thinking it was anything other than BS but I did use it to my advantage in my teens, religious girls "loved" a good Christian boy LOL.  Anyway, I left home at 16 and only returned to church to go to weddings and funerals.  I married a Catholic girl and we have one child (27 yo), both are also atheist but not as vocal as I.

Welcome hobby420!

Glad to have another someone to talk to. I'm glad your user name references weed, I was afraid maybe it was referencing Hitler's birthday!

Here in Oklahoma, you are allowed to have six mature plants with a medical card. An old friend of mine literally renovated his house to improve ventilation in one room, and currently has two plants in production with four more growing. The guy has all the nice equipment, from the lamps to the fans in his walls to some thing he hangs in his closet for drying out the bud before he puts it in jars. It's ironic really. He's already producing way more than he needs, and he would give me enough for free to satisfy a hard core pot smoker, but I don't care for the stuff.

My only objection is that you didn't wait to join up and start this thread on 4/20.  That would've been magical timing.  Ah, well.

I only use Facebook for sharing images from my hikes and view jokes nowadays. I'm unsure what label I would use describe my own political views. Somewhat of a liberal and otherwise centrist I would wager

I'm an apostate too. My parents, growing up, were non-denominational Christians. I used to be vocal about my atheism. Now I actively avoid discussing religion unless pressed in public.

Welcome also.  I was also insta-banned, from a Facebook religion forum.  For criticizing the history of the Catholic Church.

Good point... my timing wasn't well thought out I have to admit :-)

Everybody seems sensitive these days. Can't disagree about anything. Can't just laugh at a joke instead of overanalyzing how PC it is. Can't have a black or female lead in a movie or show without people arguing about whether or not it pushes an SJW agenda. The older generation likes to act like they're less sensitive, but they're no better.

Welcome, stoner. Good to have a new face around here.

The number 420 is an interesting number:

Quote
In mathematics[edit]
420 is:
the sum of four consecutive primes (101 + 103 + 107 + 109).
the sum of the first 20 positive even numbers.
a zero of the Mertens function[1] and is sparsely totient.[2]
a pronic number.[3]
the smallest number divisible by the numbers 1 to 7, and as a consequence of that it is a Harshad number in every base from 2 to 10 except base 5.
a 141-gonal number.
a Harshad number.
In other fields[edit]
420 is a code-term that refers to the consumption of cannabis.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/420_(number)


I have no idea what "sparsely totient" is.


Ah, here it is:

Quote
In mathematics, a sparsely totient number is a certain kind of natural number. A natural number, n, is sparsely totient if for all m > n,
φ ( m ) > φ ( n ) {\displaystyle \varphi (m)>\varphi (n)}

where
φ {\displaystyle \varphi }
 is Euler's totient function.

That's like shooting fish in a barrel! Look at almost any place and time that the RCC existed, they always claimed to be these pious, god-fearing saints, while all the while behaved like any other people and fed their appetites out of the sight of the public eye. But they can't stand their history being truthfully told, because they know it won't stand up to what we consider moral standards.

Seems you will fit right in!!  I also think that a world without religion would be better.  And I married a Catholic woman!  We have been on (and are still on) quite the journey.  At first I was willing to accept her world and we did go to a church for about 10 years together--Unity.  Even though I thought all along that there is not and never was, a god(s).  We are no longer going to church and are both atheist.  And I am more vocal about it than her.  Welcome.................................
