Here are a couple that transitioned before it was trendy:

I wonder if maybe programmers for whatever reason have an unhealthy obsession with being in control. This would be why they subscribe to ideologies that are controlling, such as liberalism. And why they feel a need to be able to control what gender they are. And why it is that when they appointed a programmer to be the department head at my last workplace, he turned out to be a micromanaging asshole.

I belong to a tiny sect of Bahaism called Unitarian Bahaism, founded by Mirza Muhammad Ali in the early 1900s. It is a reaction to mainstream Bahaism becoming too authoritarian, and treating religious leaders like gods, hence the name "Unitarian" (muwahhid in Arabic), to emphasize the oneness of God, and that religious leaders are not gods. The bullet points in this post are some of the religion's principles:

Why would you build a temple?

Because the Unitarian Baha'is no existing temples, even though the writings command us to build them. Having a temple is nice just because it gives members of the religion a place to gather.

Pointless separation is one big source of complexity

I was just thinking about this the other day. It's the thing people say to sound smart. People say to keep X and Y separate because it makes them look like they had the foresight to prevent some bad thing from happening if you mix X and Y. So people are stuck maintaining this pointless separation because if they were to question it they would look like stupid people who didn't have the foresight to understand why you have to keep X and Y separate.

Yeah but you can't as easily use deforestation as a pretext to control people. The carbon emissions thing is great because it's tied to things regular people do, and it is hard to measure how one's carbon emissions impact climate. So you can force people to do things, saying that it is to prevent them from destroying the climate with carbon emissions, and it will be extremely difficult to disprove you.

Another thing that came to mind is that I have heard of people hiring personal assistants to bear the burden of interacting with scum. For my relocation my workplace did it through a relocation assistance company, whose only job was to talk to the moving company and talk to the apartment for my temporary housing. I thought it was stupid at first that they hired a company to do just this. But after interacting with the rude staff of the apartment myself, I was extremely grateful that my interaction with them was minimized. I wonder if there is a company like this but for life in general, so that you can hire them and never have to interact with scum again.

They use git but I don't know them well enough yet to know their views on git. At my previous workplace though, they hated git and used mercurial for years, using an internal mercurial server, until finally last year they were forced by upper management to switch to git. This happened after another group of modern scum programmers convinced upper management to turn everything to shit and persecute the good programmers. This is why I left (and it worked out because I got a decent pay increase as well).

I had shut down a real estate business and sold the properties. I had a bank account with multiple sub-accounts, one for each property. So I went to the bank to close this. I got one cashier's check for each sub-account. My personal bank (different bank) used to allow deposits by mail but now requires an app. I tried using the app to deposit the checks but got an error that the checks are too large. My bank has no branches where I currently live. My wife called them and they said to go to a branch in some other city which basically requires a flight. So I went back to the bank that issued the cashier's checks and got them to exchange the checks for multiple checks of smaller amounts so that I can deposit them.

Something similar happened with my prescription for my glasses. I moved out of state and the optometrist (which is part of a big corporation) wouldn't mail me or email me my prescription, saying they do fax or in-person only. And since the cost of a plane ticket or a fax machine make obtaining the prescription prohibitively difficult, since they would be more than the cost of getting another eye exam done, I left them a 1-star review saying they are witholding my prescription (which is illegal). After this they called me to apologize, informing me that they would mail me my prescription, so I deleted the review. I hate that this is the world we live in, but market forces seem to no longer work, and businesses aren't willing to lift a finger to make things more convenient for their customers. The only thing anyone seems to respond to is the force of government.

Loving your enemies vs. hating evil people | Pastor Steven Anderson by trident765 in nonmorons

[–]trident765[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I believe this is probably the verse Pastor Anderson was defending against in the video.

Pastor Anderson believes in a doctrine that says that there is a class of people called "reprobates", that are horrible people, cannot be "saved" (i.e. they will go to hell), and you become one if you hate God, and once you become a reprobate you are a reprobate permanently and there is no going back. He gets this from Romans 1. In the video he distinguishes "enemies" from "reprobates", and says even though you are required to love enemies you are not required to love reprobates. An "enemy" might be a petty criminal or perhaps a Muslim, whereas a "reprobate" would be someone like an LGBT rights activist. Pastor Anderson believes all gays are reprobates, which is his explanation for why gay conversion therapy does not work. He believes hatred of God is what triggers homosexual urges.

Did the Holocaust happen? by fschmidt in AskSaidIt

[–]trident765 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

But no one uses this definition of "Holocaust". The real definition of Holocaust that society accepts is that 6,000,000 or more Jews were killed by Nazis. Those who believe 5,999,999 or less died are holocaust deniers.

But I personally believe that the German government killed Jews in WWII. I have distant relatives who were killed in similar circumstances so I know governments are capable of doing this. But Jews also claim that they were persecuted far worse than any other minority in history, which I am not certain about. From what I read the Armenian genocide was as bad or almost as bad as the Holocaust, but it doesn't seem that way to the average person since Armenians do not complain nearly as much as Jews.

It's true that there does seem to be a housing crisis in certain parts of the country. Even getting an apartment where I live is a nightmare, as nothing seems to be available. Rent has gone up, but I think even worse than this is the lack of options so don't even have a choice - you have to take whatever you find.

I found an absolutely beautiful apartment that had vacant units and was cheap. It was a brand new building too. I thought it was too good to be true. I contacted the apartment for a tour, and they said I couldn't live there, because this beautiful luxurious apartment was "low income housing", so only poor people are allowed to live there. What a joke.

I think there is a push to build more and more of these "low income housings". I think Democrats want poor people to be reliant on the system, so that they become loyal to the system. This is how they get their policy power. This exposes one of the flaws of democracy.

Because this is so important, one can reasonably assume that a significant part of a woman's brain is dedicated to this issue. This means that women can intuitively determine which men are genetically "good" much better than men can using analytical reasoning.

I was thinking about something related the other day. My thought was that women seem to be better than men at sensing intelligence in men.

I don't have enough content to write a full article but my view of python is it is a good programming language with bad dependency management options. The most popular package managers are pip and conda. If you try to install an older python package (like 5 years old), it is always a nightmare to get it to work because it tries to update the other packages to versions that will break your software. There are ways to force it to use older versions, but with python the dependencies tend to have a bunch of other little subdependencies, so you if you want to use an old version of the dependency you have to look up what versions of all the subdependencies work with the older version of the dependency. The end result it that you are basically always forced to use the newest version of the software. This makes "client software" function in some ways more like "server software", where the current software developers have totalitarian control of their software, and if you don't like it there is really no option to revert back to an older version.

In java programs I have dealt with, the dependencies seemed more straightforward. Just a few key jar files in a folder. No stupid package manager that tries to update everything.

Anyone else here has had a past suicide attempt or am I the only suicidecel? by [deleted] in Incels

[–]trident765 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Never attempted but I do think I came very close to committing suicide 5 years ago.

After being rejected and cucked by a fat girl that I was infatuated with (because she was nice to me once), I was ready to commit suicide. Even though she was fat and was a manipulative, psychological mess, for some reason I thought she was the perfect girl, and that by failing to court her, I had messed up the opportunity of a lifetime. I felt like without her the rest of my life would be agony. And it came to the point where I felt that it would be better not to live than to live.

I started daydreaming about suicide, and mentally planning a method. My method involved an automobile and a hose.

I felt like I was dead set on killing myself, but what made me stop was I got a job offer on the other side of the country, and this gave me something to look forward to.

I remained depressed about the fat girl for many months, but I was no longer suicidal.

Many women wear headphones in public for the sole reason that they do not want men approaching them by trident765 in Incels

[–]trident765[S] 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Women commonly "preject" guys they are not attracted to, so that they don't even get the chance to approach them. For example, if a woman notices an incel is standing in her vicinity, she may wander off into some other part of the room. If an incel gazes in her general direction, she will turn her head in the other direction so she doesn't accidentally make eye contact and cause him to think she is attracted to him. It is common for women to make microaggressions towards men they are not attracted to.
