  • Made Up Stories

    I've been talking to my mom about a med change for my wife, and how I can convince the doctors to put her back on certain meds that work. My mom says my dad was given a shot to help him, but it in fact it turns out that it made him really sick and took and month to recover. That next month, the…

  • Make believe

    Isn't it good that we, as atheists, understand that none of the Judaeo-Christian/Islam religions are true; in fact, that no religion is "true." What a discovery we have made!
