Greetings, Amanda! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since October. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
I'm having a terrible time negotiating this site. I'm old school. Thank you for the warm welcome. I read your thank you message to Dr. Meaden and offer condolences over the loss of your grandmother. I also sent you a friend request. We're both atheists in the Bible Belt!
Impressive bio. I have to say I am green with envy about the farm :). Do you have any insights on where we should go in the future with farming? Like for instance, how do we best reclaim land that is too saline from irrigation?
Thanks for writing to me Amanda.
That's a rivetting story about your family's positive atheism that was so firmly held within the myopic culture of outrageous Baptist beliefs that your farming neighbours held and hold.
Hello Amanda. That's a fine honest introduction to yourself. Welcome to this friendly meeting place with freethinkers who recognise that gods and religions are deceptions used to control vulnerable superstitious people, including defenceless children; and how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and even longer.
