About Me:
I am an 80-year-old curmudgeon; I like the 1500s spelling best and definition:
"An ill-tempered (and frequently old) person full of stubborn ideas or opinions."
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

Responses to "Prove there is no god

Posted on May 10, 2016 at 7:37pm 6 Comments

I ran across this post on Facebook from Ben Andrews on May 6, 2016. It offers a good, solid response to those who want proof there is no god!

"Proof there is no god?

"How often have we encountered the Theists, when you ask for proof that god exists demanding that you 'prove' that God does not exist, and then get in a discussion who has the burden of proof instead of answering the question…


Robert Greene Ingersoll quote,

Posted on May 6, 2016 at 11:11am 1 Comment

Justice is the only worship.

Love is the only priest.

Ignorance is the only slavery.

Happiness is the only good.

The time to be happy is now,

The place to be happy is here,

The way to be happy is to make others so.

She pronounced Tomas with the accent on the second syllable.

Thanks for the welcomes from all. My current plan is to lurk and learn, with the occasional opinion offered. Nothing worse than a loud mouthed, opinionated newbie passing gas in your room. *-)

I pronounce my name "Toe Mahs", because I had an Italian student pronounce Thomas that way when she addressed me. I liked the sound and use it on line.

Greetings, Joan,

Thank you for the warm welcome.  It is good to see that people are willing to be open and inviting.  And to answer your questions...

All that spiritualism seems noxious to me.

Then it is probably not the thing you need.  For me, it was the thing that pulled me out of the demoralized state being raised in a contentious Fundamentalist community put me into.

What is your understanding at this time of that tradition?

It has been great!  Being part of a religious community that puts practice and meaning at its center instead of belief has made it accepting of me as an atheist and part of the community.  That their rituals are written around The Provider Cycle puts much of the focus on celebrating the cycle of the seasons and the year.

What do you want to get from atheism?
This is a bit harder in that I had not been thinking of atheism as a sponge to be squeezed for water, but more of a state of being.  I am an atheist in that I do not believe in an objective God or Deity.  I am, however, a Pagan, in that I believe the Universe is sacred, without anything external or supernatural needed to justify that sacredness.

What I want from Atheist Nexus is easier, in that it has a forum for Atheist Pagans, and being able to communicate with others is desirable. We are a rare breed.
What do you plan to contribute?
Not certain yet, but something.  My point of view is fairly unusual, so hopefully I can inspire some pondering.

Hey, thanks for the welcome. I am a newbie to this sort of online forum and hope to be able to get up to speed without getting in the way. As to the music part, my wife is Claire Lynch. She's the musician in the family. I am just an old hack rock and roller who plays benefit gigs for good causes, mostly 'cause it's good to play. Just running my eye down the page beneath where this comment is flowing I see some really interesting conversations. This is encouraging! I am a Canadian (perhaps you already gathered that) and therefor am a different species from the US folks I imagine are involved in this conference. We have a writer up here named Margaret Atwood who said that Americans look at Canada as if looking at a two way mirror. They see themselves in us, while we, on the other side of the glass, see you as completely different from us in most every important way. That said, I harbour no grudges, am the husband of a New Yorker turned Alabamian and all is good. Nice to meet you.

Hello Joan , Yes i could not agree more , the fascists and capitalists of this world are trying to treat other people like they are just slaves to keep them rich instead of distributing the wealth equally .The greed of these people causes suffering and death to others and has to be stamped out ,the only problem is that they have gained power through politics and there cult religions and its hard to reverse what they have done to the world  .

Hello Joan,

Thanks for your kind welcome. There's an awful lot to catch up on in Atheist Nexus as a newcomer, but I did notice you're a birder. Same here. We're getting very close (a couple weeks) to the crazy time in Minnesota for the return of the warblers. I can hardly wait...

Best wishes,
