My name is Jeff and I live in #Omaha NE after growing up on the east coast and spending the last few years on the west coast.
I have started a journey questioning my faith and beliefs that I held since childhood. It is a lonely road sometimes especially since I have not completely given up on the church side of things and still seek community with others that are not likeminded.
I have enjoyed the Liturgist podcast since it’s inception and hope to find community here.

I just finished watching the Bill Nye documentary on Netflix and watching meteorologists, politicians and religious leaders deny climate science and actively lead people down the path of destroying our planet is infuriating and sickening 🤬

I cannot process RHE being gone. I always enjoyed hearing her talk on the podcasts and explain complex issues in a way that made sense and allowed them to be applied to everyday life. I cannot imagine the pain and grief that her family is going through. Her voice will be greatly missed in this universe. 😥
This is an important thread from Twitter and rings all to true. If you have a moment send him some love.
Sunday sermon by nayyirah waheed Show more
Just purchased this application and thought it would fit here.
It is an application that reminds you randomly 5 times every day that you are going to die and gives you a quote that goes along with it.
Sounds morbid at first, but it really fits in with being aware of "THIS" and not "THAT".
Anyways let me know if you buy it and how you like it.

Logged onto The Book of Faces and was instantly greeted with ignorance and anti Muslim rhetoric...Unfriended person who posted it and logged off. Why are people so stupid and easily manipulated...ugh
Also, F***Book never ceases to amaze me with how terrible it is.
CW request, mention of active structure fire Show more
Hey folks. I know it's a big deal and all, but could you CW structure fires?
I know, Notre Dame's burning literally as I type this and that's breaking news, but y'all I've got PTSD from the 2017 California wildfires.

Then you have probably encountered the backfire effect.
protect your toes Show more
At risk of stepping on some toes..
If you have ever tried arguing with someone about gun control who is staunchly pro 2A, someone who is against vaccinations, or someone that thinks racism was something that was decided at the conclusion of the civil war and isn't something that is still being dealt with by large swathes of the country on a daily basis.
The latest Ask Science Mike podcast is really good everyone. You should go have a listen.
The part where @mike talks about connecting on an emotional level instead of trying to out science someone is spot on. They have already made up their mind and will likely only become more ingrained in their thinking the more they are argued with. This is called the Backfire effect ( although it may have a more scientific name)

The data is astounding and really sad that ~50% of the world population is still mostly ignored in this way 😔
