There is nothing I'm more passionate about in all the world than science, and nothing I love doing more than telling people about it.But here's the problem--very deep religious indoctrination convinced my wife and I to get married early, start having kids, screw our education and get ready for the rapture.So, I'm just 25, but I've got two kids, a crappy job, and a record of flunking out my last year at University.How in the world can I overcome these obstacles? Everywhere I look online,…See More

This once-active group is now unmoderated, and discussions / interest have declined to almost nothing. The original group founder is long gone.Active moderation is needed, therefore comments and membership are now closed.For re-birth of a vegetarian atheist group, if you are willing to moderate the group, I invite you to submit a new group. There have been some great discussions and I am grateful to have been involved. I am vegetarian and atheist, among other things, and would love to be in…See More

Greetings, Jonh! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <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 just read what you initially posted on the Atheist-Buddhist wall. I too am enthralled by the Buddhic philosophy. I was curious to learn about the physiological findings about the human brain etc that you mentioned also align well.
I started out a Phil/Theol Major back in College and didn't make it far into the theology before I had a crisis of faith. Started into Eastern Philo and Buddhism made the most sense. After 30 so years of studying it as well neuroscience, psych, Quantum Physics and anything else that explains how all of this works, I am in agreement with your position. But, I don't really like to call myself an atheist, as I don't "believe" there is no "god". The concept of a theist type reality just doesn't work at all once you advance past the typical metaphors of our youthful programming. Buddhism has helped me do that.
Hello! Ok, I went over this morning and tried again to fix it. I think it should be working now. Apparently, the embed setting was wonkey but it seems ok now. Thanks again, for letting me know about this!
Congratulations on escaping. It can be so difficult to do.
