    have we stopped evolving?

    No.

    but we’re still stupid.

    @Reg but even moreso, it has an air of entitlement attached to it, with the presumption that “If god existed he should do ___________(insert your Christmas list here) sort of mentality. As if we know exactly what God SHOULD do….No? Well then he mustn’t exist. I find that sort of argument full of entitlements and ultimately flawed.

    @Reg

    We would be interested to know what  you think the main errors are with the argument and why you deem it vacuous?

    It’s the equivalent of a two year old pitching a fit because they didn’t get what they wanted for Christmas. It begins with the presumption that I (single human) know what the best thing is for myself and the universe and if (sai…[Read more]

    No Ivy the problem of evil was not part of the deconstruction of your premonition.  I brought it up late because you said we will be extinct in 30 years.

    Yes because we are stupid idiots and are ruining the planet beyond reparable recognition!

    @Reg they are planning to return him to his old position but he’ll always be back up for mine and likely he will still do early morning shift at least until I get there or until the other girl comes in…..

    @Robert I like your philosophy. I was told to just keep my mouth shut and do my job by a mentor of mine and that’s probably best. If I report him it will backfire on me

  • Ivy replied to the topic Hostile work environment? in the forum Advice 3 weeks, 1 day ago

    I already did bring it up and my manager had a word with him. Nothing improved and in many ways it’s gotten worse. He isn’t teaching me anything new or helping me in any way. He doesn’t talk to me. The political rants are in front of me towards other people. I’m afraid if I raise a fuss about it it will only come back on me.

  • Ivy replied to the topic How do you explain that? in the forum Small Talk 3 weeks, 1 day ago

    Hmm. I know there are some possibilities lying in between there but, in all honestly is anyone taking this seriously anyways?

    The premise of that ENTIRE argument that has been rehashed several times in several different ways something to the effect of, “If God is so loving then why does he condone any sort of suffering….” argument, I per…[Read more]

    It’s a HUGE company, but my area is small and isolated (3 people)….they have had talks with him about these things but it doesn’t seem to phase him at all.

    @Davis

    Yes because the function of this discussion was to get, maybe even just one person, to help you confirm your biases and to roll the eyes at all the rational comments coming in.

    No, The function of this discussion was to see if there would be an alternative point of view that made sense to me. I did not find any that I could take seriously…[Read more]

    Do you really want the dick’s position, and are you confident you’re being groomed for it and not just being played?

    I almost quit. And the manager told me I was intended to be his replacement. But the problem is I think they are going to have him come in still early mornings til I get there since I can’t come in that early. Being played? I don’t…[Read more]

    Okay Ivy…i give up…i can’t overcome your intransigence.

    this thread has nothing to do with the other. That’s why i dropped the other subject completely. It is what it is.

  • Ivy replied to the topic Hostile work environment? in the forum Advice 3 weeks, 2 days ago

    My situation was definitely not just a coincidence. Now that was the other thread. Not this one.

  • Ivy replied to the topic Hostile work environment? in the forum Advice 3 weeks, 2 days ago

    I don’t know what you’re looking for. What is there to analyze? You can think whatever you want about God being my safety blanket but I know what happened. And I know there’s no other explanation.

  • Ivy replied to the topic Hostile work environment? in the forum Advice 3 weeks, 2 days ago

    It’s just all the same all tired arguments that I’ve always seen. But none of it makes sense to me. I guess that’s why I’m not an atheist. I don’t know what else to say. And I’m not gonna go breaking the rules proselytizing on the site, or coming across like I’m trying to change anyone’s point of view. You know? That’s why I didn’t respond. B…[Read more]

    I just did. I said no one’s responses resonated with me. That was my honest answer. Sorry if you didn’t like it.

    So I recently started a new job. I am in urgent need of some advice. I believe that I’m working in a hostile work environment but I’m not sure. Maybe I’m just being too sensitive and I need to suck it up buttercup and just work through it. I don’t know. I work in a pretty small workspace with myself, one other male, and one other female. In the…[Read more]

    We as a species have 30 years before extinction?

    Maybe 50. But it will be 100% because of our own stupidity

  • Ivy replied to the topic How do you explain that? in the forum Small Talk 3 weeks, 2 days ago

    @Jakelafort

    Ivy,  you have not responded.  What do you think?

    ummmm nope. Sorry 😂 none of the responses resonated with me. Sorry :/ 😆 not even close

  • Sorry to tell you but this is the beginning of the end… There really is no going back from here. I give us another 30 years on earth before we all go extinct.
