Hi and hello

Started this discussion. Last reply by John D Aug 3, 2010. 5 Replies

Hi. I'm trying this whole atheist socialization thing again.  Last year, I tried at various times to become a regular at Pharyngula and at richarddawkins.net, but neither attempt quite stuck. In the…Continue

Mythos, mythos everywhere

Posted on August 19, 2010 at 7:30am 2 Comments

I was greatly amused last week to see that my husband pulled out "Baby's First Mythos" to read to our son at bedtime.



The kid may end up learning about Cthulhu before he learns about Jesus! Which is fine with me, because he will probably use that knowledge more in certain circles and at certain times in his life.



We also have a children's book about Noah's Ark. I don't object to it at all. He will probably need to know the Noah's Ark story by the time he reaches kindergarten,… Continue

This is NOT my childhood religion

Posted on August 9, 2010 at 4:54pm 0 Comments

I'm sick of all this faith, belief, blah blah blah that my mother seems to have taken up. Catholics never cared about that stuff until the Protestants made it fashionable, or even worse, patriotic. As long as we understood the authority of the clergy and attended Mass every Sunday, no questions were asked. We didn't have Christian lingo like the evangelicals. We didn't even discuss Jesus Christ outside of church. Did my mother ever read the Bible? Not until I moved out. When I read the Bible as… Continue

The curse of the chronically exhausted atheist

Posted on August 5, 2010 at 3:17pm 9 Comments

It's hot and I'm tired. I'm tired all the time, though. Even in perfect weather I don't have the energy to accomplish much.



The problem is, I can't start a conversation about it without pseudo-medicine inserting itself and getting in the way. My own PCP won't listen to me - he just tells me that chronic fatigue syndrome doesn't exist and shugs his shoulders when I ask him what other ideas he has. My previous doctor, same thing. Woo believers love to talk to me, but I'm not going to a… Continue

Why friendly atheists are important

Posted on July 30, 2010 at 3:17pm 3 Comments

I realized this while making friends in the chatroom - I've never made friends with another atheist before. I have several nonbelieving friends, including one outspoken atheist, but she and I aren't friends because of atheism. We're friends because of RPGs, and I learned about her worldview well after the fact.



In fact, even while she was discussing being an atheist, in her living room with three dogs, four cats, and our spouses, I didn't tell her I was, too. I couldn't relate to the… Continue

Hello to G. Silva. Welcome to this friendly meeting place with freethinkers who recognise that gods and religions are deceptions that are 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.

Terry Meaden
founder of the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 300 discussion topics.
We invite you to join us and 1700 others.
