Skeptic Tantrika

Let me first express my empathy with the victims and my deep conviction that violence is never the solution, regardless of the conflict. A friend pointed me to that recording of you making a few sad and regrettable, but most of all, simply incorrect claims about atheists. I would like to take the opportunity to urge you to take into account and acknowledge the following facts: I am an atheist.I do not hate god. God does not exist. Thanks for listening.

While you meditate on those facts, this might give you the opportunity to also reflect on the fact that you have blamed a whole group of people, made huge assumptions about how they feel and think, and massively contributed to hate and violence against a religious minority.

An introduction to Tantra

Stone Mountain, GA, 1994 Mention tantra, and you’ll probably get the response that having sex for seven hours sounds really unappealing—as mythologized by an off-hand Sting quote from 1990 that still dominates the entire conversation about this ancient practice. So, what exactly is tantra? We were surprised to find that it’s not actually about sex at all—or specifically, not at all about sexual technique.

Not everyone is going to like the theory that porn may be psychologically detrimental, but is important to consider the notion nevertheless. For instance, some studies have found associations between watching pornography and a decrease in the volume of grey matter in certain regions of the brain.
