How I come across?

How I come across?   Here is how I was told I come across:   “you come across so strongly with your ideas that it feels like you don’t care about anyone else in the room. And if you ask about others’ ideas, it is to compare them to your own. You don’t seem genuinely curious about other people, just focused on axiology, your book, etc. If you are interested in other people for their own sakes, they respond better. If people get the idea that you’re just in the room to tell people about yourself, that’s a turn-off. You might see it differently, but that’s how it looks to others.”   Here is my response:   I do like hearing ideas other than my own but also like telling what I think. I left a local atheist event before it was over (because it was mainly geared for weak atheists, accommodationist atheists, and religious atheists) as I wanted to respect that others have the right to be different than me. I do have strong opinions and a strong personality, but do strive to respect the self-rights of others. This means I realize I am not a good fit for every type of group or type of people atheist or otherwise. I do say even if I do not agree with others style of atheism, I do not think there is a right style of atheism. neither others atheism style or mine, as the type that works for others is good for them, just as the one, I like works for me. I believe people own themselves and thus...

Oxygen is an Evolutionary Constant as well as a Constraint.

2.5 billion years ago— one of the first animal was ancient sponge appeared and they needed oxygen. Over its 3.5 billion years, life on Earth has evolved more than a quadrillion-fold increase in size from its microscopic beginnings. How and why did body size evolve so dramatically? According to Timothy Lyons Professor of Biogeochemistry, “We know, for example, that oxygen was likely very high a bit more than 2 billion years ago – but there were no animals,” he says. “Evolution wasn’t ready.” According to the evidence the team collected, life has experienced two big growth spurts. For the first 1.5 billion years of its history, life stayed small — barely increasing in size from its beginnings. Then, around two billion years ago some lineages rapidly evolved to be roughly a million times larger than the largest organisms had been before. All animals around today split from a common lineage, about 650 million years ago. A new fossil find pushes back the start of the evolution of multicellular animals. The fossil of a tiny, ancient sponge is 600 million years old, according to the paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, meaning it predates that explosion. That puts it in a time period earlier than many scientists expect to find sponges and could shake up what we know about the timing of animal evolution. It is generally accepted that the first animals were ancestral sponges, although there is much debate about the early sequence of events. The Earth is nearly four billion years old and for much of that long history, life was basically just bacteria,...

Me and My Gender Diversity: Genderqueer, Intersex, and Male.

I will comment on me and then gender diversity: I consider my gender genderqueer, intersex, male My genetics test stated that I am 46, XY 46,XY disorders of sex development   Other Names: 46, XY DSD; 46, XY female; XY female   “A 46, XY disorder of sex development (DSD) is a condition in which an individual with one X chromosome and one Y chromosome in each cell, the pattern normally found in males, have genitalia that is not clearly male or female. Infants with this condition tend to have penoscrotal hypospadias, abnormal development of the testes, and reduced to no sperm production. Some individuals with 46, XY DSD have fully to underdeveloped female reproductive organs (e.g., uterus and fallopian tubes), while others do not. People with 46, XY DSD may be raised as males or females. Treatment involves surgery and hormone replacement therapy.” Ref: https://rarediseases.info.nih.gov/diseases/8538/46-xy-disorders-of-sexual-development 46,XY Intersex Individuals: Phenotypic and Etiologic Classification, Knowledge of Condition, and Satisfaction With Knowledge in Adulthood   I am happy as I am, I see my gender as: Intersex-Genderqueer-Male (XY female) Nonsyndromic disorders of testicular development are a group of conditions characterized by the following: A generally normal physical examination with absence of clinical findings involving organ systems other than the reproductive organs A normal 46,XY karyotype by conventional staining External genitalia that range from ambiguous to normal female Internal genitalia that range from absent müllerian structures to a fully developed uterus and fallopian tubes Gonads that are characterized as normal testis, ovotestis, dysgenetic testis, or streak Based on the particular features seen in any given individual, the clinical diagnosis may be designated as 46,XY disorder...
