How are we meant to answer that question without knowing which things are fun for you?
People with large egos don’t want yout to exploit what makes you happy. It’s rare that someone knows what’s best for you, they can only know what’s best for the whole. And what they feel is best for the whole is usually what benefits them the most.
Mae West said “When you have to choose between two evils, always pick the one you haven’t tried before”.
The Old-Timer said “It ain’t what you done that spoils your sleep. It’s what you missed”.
You said to take this question in a serious manner.
The Wiccans said “Do what you will if it harms none”. It does not
say ‘if it harms no one’.You have to consider animals and the environment too. This is from pre-christian times. Were these people ignorant, or what?
Sorry, never heard of those two guys you mentioned.
Religion defends it’s cause by associating everything “wrong” in it’s perspective with things that really do have just cause to be wrong, painful or hurtful to people. Through parables and metaphors religion builds a false logic within the mind, influencing that reality is maintaining notions based on similarities, rather than facts. To maintain it’s cause, it encourages it’s members to shun those who distract from the pure faith. Then by not feeling welcome anymore by family and friends he must make a choice. Either accept reality as those around him dictate, or believe and study further his own notions with an open mind so he can verify one way or another, even at the risk of losing his family and friends’ respect.
What I managed to do was come out myself, and at the same time convince my family to do the same. I simply made them see the error and flaw of religion’s logic, which even though they are too influenced to conceptualize a reality without a god, they can admit now that one cannot rely on a path of logic that runs around in circles. So they no longer support the concept of church, even though they still believe in God. Satisfactory result I would say.
Dangerous and sinful are two separate things. It’s natural for those concerned with your well-being to not want you to engage in dangerous behavior. They don’t want you to get hurt.
Sin, however, is a purely religious notion, and as no religion has been able to prove that it is the One True Religion, what constitutes a sin is essentially personal opinion. Religion and religious teachings are largely hereditary, being taught to young children at an age before they are able to think critically for themselves. So a person may consider an activity sinful for no reason other than that’s what they were raised to believe.
If your idea of having fun involves danger, please be careful. Bad consequences can give you grief the rest of your life (assuming the bad consequence wasn’t getting yourself killed!). If however the activity is merely sinful, then I wouldn’t worry too much about that.
There is no such thing as sin. Those friends are the wrong friends.
What is wrong with people thinking something is dangerous? Perhaps it is. Perhaps one of those things will cut off your arm or make you blind or kill you. Maybe nothing will ever happen. But what is wrong with their opinion concerning danger?
Since they cant have fun themselves they dont want anyone else to have pleasure either.
I am going to turn into a real bbbbb in a minute if they dont back off.
Now you know why we hate the people of the world.
