Trump has shown that you don't have to spend a dime to get all the advertising you need to run for president.  I'm sure us Atheists would be just as entertaining to the general public as Trump is,…Continue

Hi Donald. That link you shared in climate Concerns didn't lead to anything but a Google search page. Perhaps you could click into the particular article you want us to read, and make a new comment linked directly to it.

My original plan was research on illogical beliefs ie religion, then the psychology of belief,then propaganda, which is a very black area! With all the date gatherered, I can project that at least 6 volumes would be required! Although I started out to explain the idiocy of belief in the supernatural, I stopped & pondered the millions in Asia who believe in the medicinal properties of rhino horn or tiger's claws & realised that overal humankind has not evolved very much regardless of the progress made by scientists!

TY, I am already interested in so much. I am serious about my family. I am 46 years old and a care giver for my disabled mother. Her sister (my 90 year old aunt) just stopped by 1/2 an hour ago, and started questioning me on things she had no business asking.

This being stuck in the middle between caring for my mother and dealing with right wing religious family is hard! I am glad to come to group and be around free thinkers!

I really really really want to get more involved! Richard Dawkins has been a huge inspiration, and it is great to see there are a lot more people who have enough sense to know how to think for themselves!

Donald, I appreciate your dialogue in Climate Concerns.

Incidentally, here's an entry from Lean Logic, a kind of dictionary, that explains better than I could why I never say things like, "Climate Change is our fault." or "Human beings are to blame from Global Warming."

Hi Donald good morning yes I do believe in evolution but also I believe in extraterrestres or others kinds of inteligente beans from other places of the universe. And as I already have said I believe that God is Nature. Greetings. Thank you.

Hello Donald how are you friend hope very well thank you for accept me at the Atheist Nexus, as I told you before I am became an Atheist because I believe that the Nature is God that he is everywhere and I dont believe that Christ can replace God and I think that we all are like Christ because he and every creature of the Earth and of the Universe are all the same from the Creation.

Peculiar - I can't find you in my A|N mail list.  If you can find me in yours, send me an A|N mail note and I'll answer it with my email, to get this business started.

Don it sounds like you are way ahead of me in the vegetable department.
this winter I added 4 smaller raised beds, approx 4ft by 4ft. They are taller, and solider, made from the narrower cement blocks and topped with cobblestone pavers from an old patio. I can weed without bending much, and sit on the edge to plant seeds. Two have perennial Chinese chive - we use in large amount as a vegetable - and two I planted with seeds for spinach, radishes, etc, this week. After those are done, one will get flowers, something deer resistant like marigolds, and the other Will get peppers.

I drive to Longview Kaiser every 6 months for cancer consultation. It's easier and nicer than going to Portland.
