We Dub Thee Undeserving

Those we deem undeserving of compassion due to their inability to care about our feelings, have probably not learned enough about compassion to know they need it the most, even if they do not want it from us. These are people that do not know how to give love enough for people to want to give it back to them; or they place too many limits on their love it counter-acts the little they give to most relations; or they expect love without having to give the same in return. The statement was inspired by a reformed neo-Nazi, after he described changing his life focus from hate to compassion. i added “we deem” because who is to judge? We are. People do. Sometimes for self-defense and good reasons. Limited love and reasonable compassion are realistic to be able to give to even some of the worst people; ie some mercy… While being able to defend our own lives. writing about types of sustained love is writing about desire for emotional balance often. When we call people whores or sluts just because they will not only be with us, ironically it is us who is less affectionate than the person we are accusing of being too affectionate with too many people. They might be disloyal to us, or may have hurt us; but we become undeserving of love if we try to ruin their lives more than they hurt us.

That kind of emotional vengeance no matter how justified, makes us into monsters as much as any of the thousands of liars in history.

Whores can be affectionate to those they like, so it has less to do with careers and more to do with ability to be compassionate. Loyal people can abuse the frickin hell out of people, and loyalty is not necessary for being nice to strangers for example, or letting someone go that feels abused.

Racism & Conservative Culture

Posted in Critical Commentary of Civilization, Politics, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 26, 2016 by Drogo

My Thoughts on Racists, Racism, and Conservative Culture

This will not take long. ‘Race’ is an artificial term that we use to stereotype or ‘vaguely identify’ physical differences between the same human species, from different ethnic and genetic regions. The fact remains we are so closely related to apes, that these distinctions among our own species are more opinion than fact. Cultural pride is not the same as hateful bigotry; when the two concepts are combined to promote intolerance of differences, humanitarian self-defense must apply social pressure to limit the hostility, or fascist regimes come out of the closet and run governments and kill those that do not obey their domination. History has shown this is true; with all empires and dictators that imposed their belief that their culture is superior to others and deserves to enslave the others.

History has never frozen in time, according to the records. Things are always remixing; cultures, families, animals, plants, inanimate objects comprised of matter, etc. etc… Yes we all have our own biased or bigoted tastes or preferences that are racist because they are based on our own cultural or personal perspectives; that does not mean that being hatefully prejudice against ‘them that are other’ is a good thing in a World where we should be evolving to be more harmonious and cooperative, even with our minor distinct differences and bio-diversity. Death will come to all soon enough, and life has plenty of other challenges that we can spend time on.

Identifying by superficial features is well, superficial. Fear, greed and jealousy are at the heart of Racism, where love should be. “Races” have always been more of a rainbow blend spectrum, rather than ‘black or white’. What we call ‘races‘ (inbred DNA groups in periods of time) and ‘cultures‘ (ethnic or economic power groups) always and constantly change, adopt, adapt, and generally move around in history and countries.

Hybrid Cultures and Races

ps – Trump has the same New England style racism as Lovecraft (HORROR author). They are not as violent as the KKK or Nazis, but New England racists want to be the last immigrants; and want to stop cultures from mixing in the melting-pot of liberty. In the South, the KKK mainly focus on attacking blacks with psychological terror and physical violence. The KKK supports Trump, and consider Nazis to be too socialist. The Alt-Right is led by white nerds that want to justify their weak hatred with pseudo-intellectual rhetoric (words). 

Criticism of Monotheism by a Polytheist

Comments of Caution Regarding Abrahamic Bibles :

Beware the Jewish Torah, the Christian Bible, and the Muslim Quran !!!

… for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God.” – Exodus, in the Ten Commandments

I have studied the Bible with Catholics, Protestants, and others. My mother taught Sunday School at our Methodist Church, I went to Catholic High School, and I have discussed the Bible with many clerics from all branches over the years. I have studied Christianity almost as much as Paganism. I am not Christian anymore, yet I have intense psychological roots in Christianity and so I feel a need to continue to address my knowledge about it. Also Christianity continually comments on Paganism, so I will return the favor. Of all the religious mythologies in the World, please do not take the Abrahamic bibles literally; specifically the parts mandating bigotry against gays, pagans, or other freedoms like “bad words”.

Jewish, Christian, and Muslim bibles all contain some good general myths, lessons and moral values; yet these books tend to claim to contain the only beliefs for true spiritual salvation, even when there are significant contradictions between them, and hypocrisy within all three of the major popular dogmatic religious texts. The inclusive parts about love are good, and the exclusive parts about hateful bigotry and violent persecution are evil. As Pagans we accept that our gods can have evil destructive aspects, yet ironically those monotheistic bibles claim that their god is purely good, and blame all evil on humans and their trickster spirit The Devil. The Devil has been intentionally depicted as a horned Pagan deity. The tradition of depicting evil as Pagan, is so antagonistic it would be like Pagans saying that our main evil spirit is their God, except that the old man with a white beard is not even a god at all, but simply the most evil spirit that the Goddess ever allowed to exist. To say one “believes the word of God” is one thing, but taking the words literally has led to many evils throughout history.

I will comment on the Christian Bible, since I know it the best, and it includes part of the Jewish / Hebrew Torah, and is similar to the Quran. Of the three bibles, I know least about the Muslim / Islamic Quran. My criticisms of the Christian Bible, are mostly a response to those Christian crusaders and witch hunters (including my ancestors) that waged holy war, and tortured and executed countless other humans, based on their terrible literal interpretations of the holy words of their choice. In fact many believed that they had no choice, because it was the will of God to destroy heretics, pagans, and sinners. My oldest recorded ancestor was an English crusader baron, and in America I am directly related to Judge Danforth, who presided over the Salem, Mass witch trials. It is because of their sins against humanity and the decimation of the old nature gods, that I seek to make amends for the wrongs of Christians against Pagans, and heal our connection with Nature.

Warnings should be placed in monotheist bibles that expose their doctrines of global domination (Manifest Destiny), and their persecution and conquest of pagan cultures. We must continue to make cultural changes in our New-Age of understanding, for our New World religion, spirituality, and magic. We all should have the freedom to practice Abrahamic religions, in our own personal ways by reading them as works of glorious fiction. I consider the Christian Bible to be metaphorically divinely inspired. The Bible can enrich the soul, just as manure can enrich the soil. If either one can relieve some of our suffering, than I say unto thee, “Hallelujah”. I know there are certainly many millions of people that have felt their lives were enriched by monotheist practices. The truths in religions are the archetypal metaphors and moral lessons that apply to the current needs of the people. I will quote Bishop Spong now, because as he says, “Christianity must change or die.”

Notes & Quotes on Sins of Scripture by Bishop John Shelby Spong

Let us have a Christianity that supports civil rights, equal rights, religious freedom, peace, and evolution of thought! Amen.

“Christian voices in our world continue to employ words that reveal nothing less than arrogance toward other religions, whose adherents they regard as fit subjects not for dialogue but for conversion. This attitude is regularly enforced with biblical claims that a particular religious tradition the certainty of the ultimate truth of God that is seen first as religious bigotry and later as religious persecution.” – Preface

“The Bible is a subject of interpretation: there is no doctrine, no prophet, no priest, no power, which has not claimed biblical sanctions for itself.” – Paul Tillich

“In the history of the Western world, however, this Bible has also left a trail of pain, horror, blood, and death that is undeniable. Yet this fact is not often allowed to rise to consciousness. Biblical words have been used not only to kill, but even to justify that killing. … It might be difficult for some Christians to understand, but it is not difficult to document the terror enacted by believers in the name of the Bible.”

“I had to document the evil that Christians have so frequently rendered to others in the name of our religion, including the way we have justified violence with biblical quotations. … There is plenty of guilt to go around. It appears to be in the nature of religion itself to be prejudiced against those who are different in looks, language, habit, and religion. Violence is almost always the result of such prejudice.”

“I believe the Bible must be preserved, but not the Bible that people have used to enhance the pain and evil present in human history.” – Word of God

“Perhaps the strangest claim ever made for any written document in history is that its words are, or somehow contain, the Word of God.” “By Sins of Scripture I mean those terrible texts that have been quoted throughout Christian history to justify behavior that is today universally recognized as evil.” Beyond the biblical lists of immoral mandates… “It is quite easy to demonstrate that the Bible is simply wrong in some of its assumptions. It is hard to maintain the claim of inerrancy in the face of biblical statements that are obviously incorrect. The Word of God is not infrequently simply wrong.”

Moses did not write the Old Testament (Torah). He was dead for at least 300 years. David did not write Psalms, again several years after the death of King David. Jesus’s followers did not write the Gospels. Paul was wacked. “Paul was many things, but divine was not one of them.” – A Claim That Cannot Endure

Bible and Environment

Over-breeding is a real problem in the modern World. Environmental ignorance is a real problem for civilization as well.

Climate Change Summary

As global warming occurs at the poles, ice melts. The Ocean water temperature rises, and coastal flooding is happening around the World. This causes more frequent and larger hurricanes and tidal waves that kill and displace thousands. Combined with droughts on the mainland, these disasters create more violent civil conflicts.

Biblical Anti-Environmental Attitude Summary

The quest to dominate the Earth comes from Old Testament times. Hebrews coming from Egypt, had a sky god named “YHVH” (I am that I am). They wanted their ancestral homeland back from the Canaanites, who worshiped an Earth Goddess Astarte, and her Lord Baal (Master). Hebrews were shepherds who believed in animal sacrifices to their sky god, and Canaanites were agrarian farmers who preferred grain sacrifices to their gods. The Hebrews invaded and made holy war against the Canaanites, their neighbors.

“Mother Earth is fighting back. Mother Earth is rebelling against the way she has been treated by a single species which acts as if the whole world exists to provide comfort and wealth for that species.”

“…let them have dominion over … (animals), and all the earth…” – Genesis 1:26

“Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it.” – Genesis 1:28

“Bad theology creates bad ecology.”

What was it about Jesus the human, that caused people to say his miracles were true and that he was the Messiah? – Chapter 31

No, I do not believe that Jesus stilled the storm, walked on water, … But I do want to understand what the experience was with Jesus, that caused people to apply Hebrew scripture God language to him.”

Carl Sagan a devout Atheist with a Jewish background, was a friend of Spong. Yet as an astrophysicist he was always referencing religion and God. He said if Jesus had ascended at the speed of light, he would still be traveling within our Galaxy. Perhaps the point of the New-Age Movement, is that despite whether any of the prophets wanted us to believe all of their stories literally, or not; we need to use their stories and lessons in ways that fit our own lives and times.

To make a god in our own image is not a sin of idolatry or vanity, it is a natural healthy desire to understand ourselves and promote our well-being. However many cults and religions have attempted to say that their one “God” is exclusive to their faith, and “He” is only accessible to others through full conversion to their entire dogmatic system of exclusive beliefs. It is a great evil to claim that only your own god exists. To admit that all religions are myths, is not just to admit to how false the stories may or may not be; but also to understand that spiritual experiences can only be communicated through fictional metaphors, because the Spirit World is not defined by non-fiction physical reality. Religious Mythology is taken very seriously, but metaphors are less likely to promote war.

Drogo’s Comments about Mormons

Mormon Bible & The Church of Latter Day Saints

Revolutionary War veteran and Congregationalist preacher, Solomon Spalding (1761-1816) wrote a satirical historic-fiction of the lost civilization of the “American Mound Builders.” He had a skill for mimicking biblical language. Joseph Smith came from a family of evangelical Christian folk-magicians. During his years of treasure hunting he was given Spalding’s main unpublished work, known as “Manuscript Found”, which is now ironically “lost”. Together with his friends, Smith based the book of Mormon on the only existing copy of Spalding’s best work. Smith was a charlatan and learned many ways how to fool many people by using spiritual language. Only years later Mormons publicly released a paper claiming to be the Spalding draft, “Manuscript Story”, but it was clearly either a fake or simply an early Spalding draft. The draft version was clearly different than what was used to write the Book of Mormon, so it was either a false draft made by Mormons, or one that Smith had not used because it did not have the same tone as the other Spalding texts.

“Manuscript Story” and “Manuscript Found” were separate works, but the Book of Mormon is the only public version of “Manuscript Found”. If there is a copy of the Spalding version, it is very possible the Mormon Church will never let it see the light of day. It is more likely that Mormons destroyed it early on. Regardless it is important to realize that Joseph Smith did write the finished version of the Mormon Bible in order to deceive gullible people in order to get their money, and have influence and power. Beyond the evil of tricking people to get rich, Mormon’s have a Bible that ignores historic Native American Indian tribal cultures, and claims that Christianity was their original faith, and that losing their faith in God was an evil that turned their skin red. Native Americans were NOT descended from the evil Lamanites, and we need to stop the literal lies of Mormons that were apologist attempts at making white frontier immigrants feel better about taking Native American lands, killing them, and taking their religion and culture from them. Mormons can be nice people, and I enjoy talking to the elder missionaries that have come to my door over the years trying to convert me; however the Mormon Bible have evil lies in it, and therefore to take the stories literally as the Mormon Church mandates is fucking stupid. Oops I said a cuss word, which also disagrees with their beliefs.

This is the account given by Solomon’s brother, John Spalding about “The Manuscript Found” (the lost version):

“The book was entitled the “Manuscript Found,” of which he read to me many passages. It was an historical romance of the first settlers of America, endeavoring to show that the American Indians are the descendants of the Jews, or the lost tribes. It gave a detailed account of their journey from Jerusalem, by land and sea, till they arrived in America, under the command of NEPHI AND LEHI. They afterwards had quarrels and contentions, and separated into two distinct nations, one of which he denominated Nephites and the other Lamanites. Cruel and bloody wars ensued, in which great multitudes were slain. They buried their dead in large heaps, which caused the mounds so common in this country. Their arts, sciences and civilization were brought into view, in order to account for all the curious antiquities, found in various parts of North and South America. I have recently read the Book of Mormon, and to my great surprize I find nearly the same historical matter, names, &c. as they were in my brother’s writings. I well remember that he wrote in the old style, and commenced about every sentence with “and it came to pass,” or “now it came to pass,” the same as in the Book of Mormon, and according to the best of my recollection and belief, it is the same as my brother Solomon wrote, with the exception of the religious matter. — By what means it has fallen into the hands of Joseph Smith, Jr. I am unable to determine.”

These recorded accounts were verified by several other close relatives that knew Solomon Spalding and his works.

“I well recollect telling Mr. Spalding, that the so frequent use of the words ‘And it came to pass, – Now it came to pass,’ rendered it ridiculous. Spalding left here in 1812, and I furnished him the means to carry him to Pittsburgh, where he said he would get the book printed, and pay me. But I never heard any more from him or his writings, till I saw them in the Book of Mormon.” – Henry Lake a business partner of Spalding 1833

The Spalding theory started by Ed Howe in 1834 is certainly a more reliable conspiracy theory, than the Book of Mormon is. The facts of history seem relative and sparse, yet Smith was far less educated than Spalding. Smith was certainly somewhat literate, clever, and had many other sources and friends to help him edit. Mormonism is one of the worst branches of Christianity, like Jehovah’s Witnesses, and other evangelicals; because it mandates the literal fallacies that emphasize aggressive bigotry, with the only uncompromising resolution being that you have to believe as they do, or go to Hell. Time for a change? Hell yeah!

* Christianity in Conclusion

The fact that Christian Kingdoms and Empires had become intolerant of all other religions, and even hateful of Nature, was not the fault of their loving and benevolent founder, Jesus. The blame must clearly be laid upon those who wrote and interpreted the scriptures of sin, and acted out the evil events so clearly recorded in history. European colonists in North America often rationalized their evils with the repeated mantra that they were saving primitive, barbaric, pagans by forcefully spreading Christian civilization. It is very possible regardless of our religious beliefs, to love Jesus or his story. I go even further to study Christian mythology and enjoy Gothic Architecture. For me, that is enough, and for those that think I am doomed to Hell because they are brain-washed, it will have to be enough unless they want to metaphorically feel my Pagan wrath. Heh, yes let them fear my curse words, because sometimes you just need to tell people to kiss your ass. Live and let live, but I will debate with them about enlightenment if I have to stop the spread of their corruption. It is a pain in the ass, but freedom is worth it. Freedom of spirit is true Salvation.

I believe that Christians (and all monotheists) should have the freedom to practice the worship of just one god, however I recommend for the sake of everything holy, the future of humanity, and the planet that they use a New-Age spiritual philosophy in the tradition of henotheism, so that we can all get along. I encourage my brother Christians to adopt a new Bible, just as I am doing by writing this one. Bibles should not be the authority on the word of the gods, as any person’s linguistic expression in book form or spoken, will always be from their human perspective. The Christian Bible was written by men, is interpreted by men, and so we should be cautious because some Christians are more enlightened than others, just as with all faiths.

Henotheism is the belief and worship of a single god while accepting the existence or possible existence of other deities that may also be worshipped; the believer worships one god alone without denying that others may worship different gods with equal validity.

How to Fight an Anti-Gay Church Group that Protests at Military Funerals


From what I have seen and heard of the Westboro Church Protests, they are idiots. Rather than just show more of their non-sense propaganda that they crave, I show here how to fight against idiot groups like them, whether they are Nazis, KKK, or just some stupid church. Fight them with their own ignorance!!!

this is an example of when their idiot messages are unchallenged,

but here are more images where they have been challenged!


 


Why I Super-Hate the Super-Bowl!!!

Posted in Critical Commentary of Civilization with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 4, 2011 by Drogo

Why Blood Bowl will always be better than the Sucker Bowl!

Would I be into the Superbowl more if it was Science-Fiction? Sci-Fi Bowl? Maybe, but the inflated and detatched commercial aspect would still bother me. That much mass emphasis on such a narrow corporate event is boulder-dash!!!

I usually am unaware until the day comes and the question gets asked somewhere “who won?” Sometimes ive known ahead of time who is playing, and even watched some. Usually ive taken walks outside and it’s peaceful because everyone else is inside watching it. I was once passive about it, but ive decided to take a position.

I posted my “Footbabble” video as my constant position on the NFL no matter if it is time for the Superbowl or not. I honestly thought it might have already happened, if my wife hadn’t of said that it was mentioned by the priest at the Catholic Church she goes to. Then I heard the guy with the Groundhog Phil say it today during the official annual ceremony, which tipped me in overdrive for the “Bloodbowl”!

From Church to Groundhog Day, one cannot escape Commercial Sports! I have one thing to say about the Superbowl, “I don’t frackin give a shank.” Blood Bowl will always be cooler anyway.

Grudges Can Be Good

Posted in Psychology with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 29, 2010 by Drogo

What is your definition of a grudge? Can a grudge be simply smart wariness of a lesson learned with some form of forgiveness, or does it always have to be petty or over-blown anger? To me a grudge can be justified in self-defense, and involves decisions that may or may not include some type of forgiveness yet draws lines of conduct.

The dictionary does say “Grudge = resentful unyielding grumbling malice”

Grudge gets murky in between:  judgements of lesson learned from ill will; and judgements learned but still harboring resentment against the ill will or harm. Yet we must not let go of such feelings in order to remember certain traumatic events to reinforce a decision to be safer, even if slightly paranoid or prejudice… say against someone that robbed you repeatedly. Of course Jesus preached about not holding grudges and giving to those that take from you, but im not convinced that holding a grudge is always wrong… semantic issues im sure…. because a grudge can be the only resolution for many bad relationships or situations, because it provides a determined conclusion to a problem. Granted, often our judgements can be wrong, or change, but ‘negativity’ is natural and often important part of our lives, even though we do not like to view it as negative. For example Yen /Yang are opposites, Darkness is the opposite of Light, however Darkness is not always negative, and sometimes Light can be negative… each relative to the subjects, situations, and perspectives.

I do not consider all grudges to be bad or cancerous, I think that people may deny they feel deep-rooted resentment about issues in order to get on with life, but i feel that small or large grudges may be totally righteous, just as stubborn pride can be. Now whether it becomes cancerous or you allow it to eat you from within to no end is another issue, because certain amounts of anxiety, hate, anger, are natural and they come and go during periods, even during the length of a grudge. The point of feeling anger and hate or malice can be for a very good reason, and can be the factor that teaches a lesson that then becomes less harmful to ourselves.

In other words, i think that letting go of a “grudge” can be less important than learning why we might chose to have one in the first place. To me letting go of a grudge is foolish if abuse patterns are allowed to continue. So the abuse of a grudge can be less than abuse brought on by the reason to have one, and to have no grudge can result in no judgements against anything, which sounds great but is terrible for self-defense. Callous self-talk and stubborn pride can cause someone to say they do not hold grudges, just as easy as someone who admits to having a grudge.

Batman having a grudge or prejudice against violent criminals like the one that killed his parents is a good thing overall, despite the fact that it may cause him some harm, he is able to manage it and direct his anger with overall good results. While it may be harder to manage anger in reality, the fictional story does provide an extreme example of having a good grudge.

Yes we were all taught that having grudges is bad, and we have to let them all go if we get them; but i think it is an unnatural New Testament and Buddhist black or white way of thinking, and not true to the Pagan grey reality of human nature and nature in general. So the problem seems to be in the semantic definition of ‘grudge’; is a grudgelet better than a large grudge, not always since a mass murderer deserves a large grudge.

So even in cases where people say grudges are bad, it seems they can serve a good function, just as negative emotions can. Grudge certainly has a negative connotation in society, i just think there needs to be a word for a healthy grudge well managed, and well used not always dwelled upon to the point of self-destruction but rather self-preservation. Im saying we have no word for the ‘good or useful grudge’; but since it clearly exists as a ‘lesson learned’ ‘behavior changed’ ‘condition of reconciliation’ or what ever; i guess i have to make one up: Mudge. i dont know.

To me a grudge can deal with a problem issue, as a judgement held against someone for negative reasons; because the reasons are really positive for the holder as self-defense. What is negative for the holder of the grudge can be negative for the recipient and vice versa… or for both of course; or neither. i understand that the most common definition is all negative; just seems we have few words to deal with the importance of holding some grudges or prejudices, and what the differences are. I hold a grudge against something that hurts me, and i may forgive them but not forget because i do not allow certain things to repeat which may hurt them somehow… yeah it can get complicated is what im saying… yeah i got some serious grudges, and they do well to help keep me on the path of peace actually. There is simply no better word for a prejudice of wariness against those that i can be hurt by, intentionally or unintentionally. No offense, but i honestly think people do not fully understand the logical purpose of having a grudge, we are taught they are all bad, and they simply are not.

Beowulf has a grudge against the monster for killing his kin and trying to kill him, and that is good for Beowulf and bad for the monster Grendel.

I think most people hold grudges, but few admit to them.

True, grudges are not good for anyone; and also not always true. Fear and hate are our enemies, However there are many things in life that are not good for anyone, but are desired or even necessary evils. Many foods and medicines are toxic to some degree, and yet often we choose to take and ingest them. Some drugs or medicines are so strong, that they hurt us more than help us sometimes, like tobacco. Yet there are functional and psychological reasons that we do and take things that are ‘not good for us’, as catalysts for change, or to help another part of ourselves, aspects of our lives that are not always certain. Fear can stop us from burning our hands, just as a good grudge can keep us from making the same stupid mistakes in relationships.

What im saying is that it is a semantics issue, since ‘parting ways’ can be interpreted as holding a grudge since it is holding a judgement against someone, so what im saying is these decisions we make do not always destroy us from within, but sometimes make us what we are. I am saying im not going to just define grudge as petty prejudice, but it can be intentional decision making for quality of life that does not have to be what most people think it is, because it honestly is part of a life process of determining what we want, whether you want to call it a grudge or not. It is what it is.

Basically petty grudges are petty, and big grudges are bad when unmanaged and unbalanced with good will and kindness; but a good grudge can keep us from being harmed, and we do not have to worry about the grudge all the time, so they do not poison us any more than drinking a bit of alcohol or smoking herb does. Again, most people will not use this definition, im just pointing out what is obvious to me.

Peace. Try not to hold grudges that do not do you any good, but by all means keep the ones that keep you safe.

 

 

Sports Teams Suck!

Posted in Critical Commentary of Civilization, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 9, 2010 by Drogo

I loved playing sports when I was younger, but as an adult I don’t give a frack. Also I don’t care who fricked Tiger Woods.

I find childrens’ stories more entertaining, and imagination. If you like watching sports, fine, but I don’t need to hear about that shat in the news.

Sport teams are like different colors to me, but mean less. Unless I am on the team, know someone on the team, or I have some direct or local connection; I do not care what team wins what sport. One exception in the future might be if all Wars were replaced entirely by sports (while keeping the sports death tolls the same or less).

Part of it is I have lost my interest in being a competitive prick, and would rather work as a human, with humans of all skill levels (yes even special people like me). The other part is I am just not as interested in sports in general. As a hiker, a martial-artist, and someone that played soccer and biked for most of their youth; I am far more interested in doing physical activity to stay healthy, and better myself in my own ways, and in my own time. For people that are not self-motivated, perhaps they need sports to keep them interested in exercise. I do not, since I prefer to exercise indoors, or outdoors, on my own.
