Joey’s uncle wanted old-school directions to his house, even though he had an iPhone to easily type in the address like a normal human. According to him though, Joey was the dummy for relying on that dumb MAPS app. Matt gets excited about these implications. A simple choice the future generations will be faced with. Accept & cooperate with hybrid humans, reverse aging, and 300-year lifespans, or go build your villages to die early. 99.9% of us will chose the former.

Now they're out to break the taboo of cannabis use within the church to give other people the freedom to try something that might actually help them too.

He came by Toby's house the other day with Aaron Lunsford, and we discussed all this, weed, his new album called "Make It Perfect" and possibly got drunk.

"The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" has been extremely beneficial to Joey's mental health. We're seeing the pressure to believe something even if you don't actually believe it move its way into mainstream culture's true seekers. Can't we all just stop giving a fuck, and be honest with others and ourselves about what we actually think about ourselves and the world? We're the ones who live in our reality anyway, so might as well enjoy what we've created for ourselves.

Jon Propper might be the best example of a full deconstruction and reconstruction of faith that we've heard from. As a pastor's kid, he grew up and even started preaching himself at 11 years old. He walks us through his journey of converting to Judaism, and then rounding back to Christianity in a bit different form. We also propose that it might be best to legalize prostitution for the sake of regulation.
