hi! just wondering, so I understand the character development that comes with skepticism and, in my opinion atheism. as an ex-Christian & cancer scientist I value my atheism. but I’m starting to become interested in studying judaism. but i feel like I’m interested because I miss the feelings associated with god.but this interest feels threatening to my skepticism and I’m struggling with these feelings. do u think it’s likely I can learn abt Judaism while remaining skeptical, or that I will fall into another belief system as I did with Christianity? i want to maintain my skepticism, it’s one of the things I’m proud of abt myself. worried I’m trying to fill a “god-shaped hole” that may be able to heal on its own.

this is totally valid. just keep in mind that many theologians and academics who study religion, ethics, theology, mythology, etc. etc. were and are atheists! having an interest in religions or a certain religion or set of beliefs does not necessarily mean to subscribe to them. you can maintain your skepticism when looking into a certain religion, absolutely. just think of it like a political ideology you don’t subscribe to, whatever that may be. you can learn what it’s about without believing in it. i hope this helps!

People debating what astrological sign is worst to have a relationship with, man astrology sucks. Just imagine going "Is this person unreliable and shitty bc they were born in a date range corresponding to the arbitrary constellations of one ancient culture? Let's debate!"

Everytime you criticize astrology it gets passed off as just for fun but like. Using it to actually make judgments about people is...not that

After the last prophecy I was given in 2007 failed spectacularly, the prophets are back! I made a couple videos recently exposing "prophets" and showing their failures, and now one has come forward with a word of prophecy for me based in Bible Code and numerology. Let's see how Prophet Tavis faired. -- If you enjoyed this video, please consider supporting my work: Make a per-video pledge: https://patreon.com/holykoolaid Make a monthly pledge: https://subscribestar.com/holykoolaid Make a one-time donation: https://www.paypal.com/donate?hosted_button_id=W29AS5WEHJQYW Join my newsletter: http://www.holykoolaid.com/newsletter/ -- Get Holy Koolaid Merchandise: https://shop.holykoolaid.com/ + Twitter: @holykoolaid SUBSCRIBE + Please Subscribe to my channel: https://goo.gl/ie3EZh Thank you so much for your ongoing support.

Honestly my biggest tip for figuring out if something online is true is:

if it’s being spread with big red text saying “SHARE THIS TO SAVE A LIFE!!!” it was almost certainly debunked by Snopes like six years ago

& if it’s joined by something about how anyone who doesn’t share it is an awful person...remove the “almost”

I can’t believe we’re already talking about vaccine distribution. That said I will take it in a heartbeat. I’m not the least bit worried about efficacy and safety, but I also don’t have the history and worry about being experimented on like black people have. I get the hesitancy that’s nowhere near based on anti-vaccines rhetoric.

There are essentially two reasons why the vaccine came so quickly:

1) we are standing on the shoulders of giants. Our understanding of vaccines has made it possible to try multiple methods old and new to find the best results. Meanwhile things like polio and measles had to start from scratch. For instance, first generation vaccines couldn’t sequence the virus to target it that way. Coronavirus was genetically sequenced in weeks with methods to target it using that info already there.

2) Money! Money! Money! During the spring I saw bill gates (lesser evil of billionaire capitalists, I still hate billionaires existing) say he was helping to finance 7 different vaccine attempts so whatever worked could hit the ground running. These funds allowed for simultaneous testing and production of the vaccine for distribution. Getting funds and taking steps consecutively are what make vaccines take longer.

So if Dr. Fauci, whom I have no reason not to defer to, says it’s safe I will absolutely take it.

JFK conspiracy theorists are really underrated since they’re by far the most certain, and most mainstream, and maybe the most derogatory towards anyone who disagrees when there’s “more and more evidence every decade!” when

There has only ever been one piece of evidence hinting at a second gunman. Ever. Just one. An audio recording revealed at a Congressional committee, and immediately debunked by multiple researchers as not having extra gunshots, and not even being recorded at Dealey Plaza

It’s treated as beyond discussion that Something Funny Happened There, like the proof is SO OVERWHELMING, when literally the only proof is one audio recording & obsessives pointing at a bunch of randos in footage & photos and giving them pithy names & writing books about “what did the TRENCHCOAT MAN know???” when like. It’s just some guy
