About Me:
I changed from faith to science. I am a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, a survivor of breast cancer thanks to the fine diagnostic work and treatment at Cancer Care Northwest, which included surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Dreadful stuff, but a wake up to living each and every minute. Life is to remember the past, live in the present and remember a preferred future. One can be good without god! My family demonstrates it

Crisis provides the opportunity for change.

Posted on November 15, 2015 at 1:27am 8 Comments

War drums beat all around us, raising the shackles of quiet but frightened people feeling helpless. Militant Islam and militant Christians react with ever louder shouts of war. If there ever was a time for reasonable men and women to step forward it is now. The war mongers of Islam and Christianity are so loud it appears to the casual observer that hopelessness is all that exists.

I see opportunity all around me, not just a PollyAnna kind of optimism, but a future full of promise, new…

Life and Death

Posted on October 30, 2015 at 1:44pm 7 Comments

I exist, a scion of unknown ancestors that began with the splitting of cells and transformations that changed everything over time. I was nothing before my conceptions and I return to that place. I am alive, with all my senses informing me of who I am and who I am becoming. Trust the process! I, you, we, all exist on the same plane, going through transformations every day until our final breath. Then, life goes on changing, individuals change, the universe changes. I return to the stuff of…

Thanks Joan. It's great to hear from you.

Ms. Denoo, thank you for your attentive research to helping me locate this book!!!

Do you know, I don't believe it is translated to English yet so even when I do achieve this goal I will be also looking for Bangledeshi(sp?) language instruction manuals to read it. What stylistic lettering in this language.

I would genuinely love a copy of this book. I'll figure out how to read it after I obtain it.

There is a member here named 'Ron M' in Fredericton, Nb. I wonder if I could solicit him and persuade him to sell/lend me his copy? Take a look at the touching obituary he wrote in honour. It's on his profile page under blog on the left hand side.

I had received one of CFI's regular emails and the struggle of these refugees intrigued me. People have lost their lives over rational, critical thinking.
This knowledge and my recent health changes are what has prompted me to join atheistnexus. I am proud to be an atheist.

Joan, we were not personally affected by the storm at all. No damage. Yesterday I planted a hybrid pear tree that I bought locally, and tuesday planted a Honeycrisp apple. With the mild winter and massive rain they should settle in OK.

So sad to hear of your Ponderosa pines being lost. They are so beautiful. Glad it wasnt worse. You have had some climate challenges this year.

I have a gastroenterologist appointment next week to see if the gremlins have awakened. Vague anomaly on scan. Kind of down about that. Might be nothing. Either way, I have appointment next week with a world expert on GIST at OHSU. Kaiser wont pay but Im going anyway.

Hi Joan, thanks for the welcome. My avatar is a picture from a wild life reserve I visited while in South Africa.

Thank you all for the kind welcome. I look forward to participating here at Atheist Nexis.

Friends have given me the nickname Whit in the past, that seems to be a good way to distinguish the multiple Randys on the board.

Everyone enjoy the weekend!

Hi Joan,

Thank for approving my request. Yes, you can call me Mihraj.

Hope I will have a good time hear. Please let me know if any meeting organised in Toronto. Would like to come and meet like-minded people.

Thanks.

Hi, Joan!  Was wondering if you had seen my latestor not, as it's a topic I think would have resonance with you.
