A Trans-woman and ABA Paralegal / law school student Working for the Orange County LGBTQI center posted this comment to:
“A black activist profile talking on race issues, not attacking anyone.”
“Um, i embrace my “white privilege” and go forth and contribute to society and bypass the insane “woke left” . Capitalism at its best! I enjoy ALL the labels the left gives me! Enough said.” – Trans woman and ABA Paralegal/law school student
Now me, the Atheist-Humanist Philosopher & Pre-Historical Writer/Researcher at damienmarieathope.com:
“So are you a good person and how would we know?”
“Damien AtHope, not at all, once labeled an Adam Henry cop then always is how the left defines…….dumb question. A smart person will take a person at face value unless conducts a furtive movement. Every one deserves one shot to be at their best. Aka, the “golden rule”. I bring my A game to my profession, reason why my clients love me. I just expose hypocrisy! Period!” – Trans woman and ABA Paralegal/law school student
My response, So what do you mean by you follow the golden rule when you sound like you describe anger not love? Do you think love is or is not the motivation of a golden rule? If you only had behaviors, not words what behaviors here are you doing that express the golden rule? When do we get to meet this claim of care as you have over the main picture on your profile? You know, the one that claims you are positive and caring…
My response, Can you please explain what positive message your post here produced in the minds of marginalized communities? Do they feel your care and understanding? Did we hear your deep love for humanity?
“I don’t care what leftist wack jobs think. Get over yourself and life a happy life not caring about others’ labels from others.” – Trans woman and ABA Paralegal/law school student
My response, So no support? So unjustifiable or inconsistent with your own words and claims of care? Should we all emulate you? If I hold your first attitude how would I treat you as I am a far-leftist? So you do not really care about the golden rule after all right? Be honest, “right” as the golden rile demands? Or are you wanting to show us how you care by this main post response? *i embrace my “white privilege”*
“No wonder, I see the problem now Damien, you are an Atheist, that’s the real problem here. Ha Ha As if you can explain the golden rule!” – Trans woman and ABA Paralegal/law school student
My response, I see you now are trying out the lack of credibility with logical fallacies, and was it because your other bad thinking was feeling left out? I wonder if you would hold your comment up as an example of how to theater others? Are your behaviors and thinking expressed here good and caring behavior of a good person using the golden rule? You could say, I guess, in your thinking, no wonder an intersex! But what does it mean about you if you do? We all need to Be the leader you would follow, who is of honor. Can you truly say that is you now???
And just like that the post is removed, I have to wonder is it something I said? Kike my very effective dignity attacks? Lol Was something he said not a great example of the golden rule? lol —–Be a good Humans to all.
Why care, well I want to be a good human and live a value-driven life.
So, a little on my political thoughts. I don’t see things as political or not political. I see my entire life as an act of political revolution. All things to me relate to value. “I want to be a good human” and how I do that is a value-driven life. So do I care about racism? Of course, I want to be a good human. Do I care about sexism? Of course, I want to be a good human. Do I care about homophobia? Of course, I want to be a good human. Do I care about imagination and the needs of people looking for a life? Of course, I want to be a good human. Do I care about the poor? Of course, I want to be a good human. Do I care about injustice? Of course, I want to be a good human. Do I believe people have a right to do with their bodies as they wish (prostitution, gay marriage, any drugs, right to die with dignity)? Of course, I want to be a good human. Do I support capitalist greed? Of course not, I want to be a good human. Do I support anarchist thinking? Of course, I want to be a good human. Do I support liberalism and Progressivism? Of course, I want to be a good human. I think you get it. Not really trying for politics just my humanity.
I just want to be a good human, So I live a value-driven life!
While hallucinogens are associated with shamanism, it is alcohol that is associated with paganism.

I do not hate simply because I challenge and expose myths or lies any more than others being thought of as loving simply because of the protection and hiding from challenge their favored myths or lies.
The truth is best championed in the sunlight of challenge.
An archaeologist once said to me “Damien religion and culture are very different”
My response, So are you saying that was always that way, such as would you say Native Americans’ cultures are separate from their religions? And do you think it always was the way you believe?
I had said that religion was a cultural product. That is still how I see it and there are other archaeologists that think close to me as well. Gods too are the myths of cultures that did not understand science or the world around them, seeing magic/supernatural everywhere.
I personally think there is a goddess and not enough evidence to support a male god at Çatalhöyük but if there was both a male and female god and goddess then I know the kind of gods they were like Proto-Indo-European mythology.

The “Atheist-Humanist-Leftist Revolutionaries”
Cory Johnston ☭ Ⓐ Atheist Leftist @Skepticallefty & I (Damien Marie AtHope) @AthopeMarie (my YouTube & related blog) are working jointly in atheist, antitheist, antireligionist, antifascist, anarchist, socialist, and humanist endeavors in our videos together, generally, every other Saturday.
Why Does Power Bring Responsibility?
Think, how often is it the powerless that start wars, oppress others, or commit genocide? So, I guess the question is to us all, to ask, how can power not carry responsibility in a humanity concept? I know I see the deep ethical responsibility that if there is power their must be a humanistic responsibility of ethical and empathic stewardship of that power. Will I be brave enough to be kind? Will I possess enough courage to be compassionate? Will my valor reach its height of empathy? I as everyone, earns our justified respect by our actions, that are good, ethical, just, protecting, and kind. Do I have enough self-respect to put my love for humanity’s flushing, over being brought down by some of its bad actors? May we all be the ones doing good actions in the world, to help human flourishing.
I create the world I want to live in, striving for flourishing. Which is not a place but a positive potential involvement and promotion; a life of humanist goal precision. To master oneself, also means mastering positive prosocial behaviors needed for human flourishing. I may have lost a god myth as an atheist, but I am happy to tell you, my friend, it is exactly because of that, leaving the mental terrorizer, god belief, that I truly regained my connected ethical as well as kind humanity.
Cory and I will talk about prehistory and theism, addressing the relevance to atheism, anarchism, and socialism.
At the same time as the rise of the male god, 7,000 years ago, there was also the very time there was the rise of violence, war, and clans to kingdoms, then empires, then states. It is all connected back to 7,000 years ago, and it moved across the world.

I am not a good fit in the atheist movement that is mostly pro-capitalist, I am anti-capitalist. Mostly pro-skeptic, I am a rationalist not valuing skepticism. Mostly pro-agnostic, I am anti-agnostic. Mostly limited to anti-Abrahamic religions, I am an anti-religionist.
To me, the “male god” seems to have either emerged or become prominent around 7,000 years ago, whereas the now favored monotheism “male god” is more like 4,000 years ago or so. To me, the “female goddess” seems to have either emerged or become prominent around 11,000-10,000 years ago or so, losing the majority of its once prominence around 2,000 years ago due largely to the now favored monotheism “male god” that grow in prominence after 4,000 years ago or so.
My Thought on the Evolution of Gods?
Animal protector deities from old totems/spirit animal beliefs come first to me, 13,000/12,000 years ago, then women as deities 11,000/10,000 years ago, then male gods around 7,000/8,000 years ago. Moralistic gods around 5,000/4,000 years ago, and monotheistic gods around 4,000/3,000 years ago.
