Timothy Freke was flipping through an old academic book when he came across a religious image that some would call obscene. It was a drawing of a third-century amulet depicting a naked man nailed to…Continue

David Silverman – Fighting God & Firebrand Atheism

Started this discussion. Last reply by Loren Miller Sep 7, 2016. 58 Replies

I love David Silverman. Why? Because he has the brass cojones to call a spade a spade, he doesn't soften his approach and he doesn't back down.  Recently, in Zurich, Switzerland, David gave a talk on…Continue

About Me:
I'm a semi-retired electrical engineer who has a rather eclectic background, never mind a few miles on the odometer. I suppose I was an "apatheist" for quite a while - largely indifferent to the whole issue of gods - but after 9/11 and the more blatant appearance of evangelicals and Dominionists on the scene, my atheism has finally come to the fore.

Other interests include high-end stereo and home theater (and with that, CD and DVD collecting), BMWs and general car enthusiasm, single-malt whisky and biking.

I flatter myself that I know my way around Atheist Nexus at least reasonably well (I've been here since November of 2009), so if you need a hand with something, please don't hesitate to give a shout.

Sounds like you have a great bunch of fur-babies. Let me tell you about mine:

1. Samwise Gamgee Moonglow-16 yo: lilac point Siamese mix I picked up at a 3-M plant in Ontario, CA while I still drove semi. He is the BEST!

2. Chloe Rose-approx. 18 yo: tortoiseshell. Got her from a college woman who could not keep her.

3. Cappuccino Java Hopper Enigma Little Bitch - almost 9 yo: Mostly white with black splotches. A friend brought her to me when she was about 6 days old. She never grew so is still my baby (Java for short).

4. Majik Curious Destiny - approx. 3 yo: A friend (same one who brought Java to me) found Majik at a PetSmart up for adoption. I received pictures of her and told my friend to get her for me as I had been searching for a calico like her since my last calico died (Maggie was 19 when she died).

5. Solveig5-6 yo: Eastern Gray tree frog. One fall, when I was still putting plants outside during the day, this little frog kept coming in with the plants every night. I would find her in the morning when I placed my plants outside. After the third time, I said, "Well, I guess you want to stay." I bought a large habitat with front glass doors, put in plants and logs, plus a pond. I have to buy crickets (Yuck) to feed her. She is the mellowest frog I've ever come across.

So, that is my family!

Thank you,Loren, I will scritch my cats and tell Solveig (the frog) ribbit. Soveig is an Eastern Gray tree frog - chirp chirp.

Hi Loren! Yes I love podcasts! They were a big help after my divorce the comedy ones helped me laugh again. The variety and content of podcasts is better than anything on cable. I do love the Thinking Atheist podcast, it's well produced and that voice is amazing, I could listen to him for hours!

I was just soliciting advice, Loren.

That might be related. Later I had to stop my flash plugin because it gave me problems.

BTW, I put my psychological reaction to climate news in the Psychology group. It' really for psychological discussion, isn't it. I wasn't sure where to put it, as I already overload Ecological and Climate Concerns. Have you a better suggested location to post such things in future?

At 5:43pm on May 18, 2016, Ruth Anthony-Gardner said…

Thought you might want to know. I selected the Noam Chomsky group after searching for it in my groups, and my computer froze up. The message telling me what was loading said something about read Twitter.com. Had to do a hard reboot. Couldn't find anything like that in my task manager.

The Politics of Distraction

Variations on the following have just been sent to the feedback sites for CBS, NBC, and ABC News:



I may be mistaken regarding your current journalistic focus, but a bunch of ineffectual cruise missiles in Syria, then one large bomb goes BOOM in Afghanistan and any attention the media may be paying to the issue of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and alleged complicity on the part of Donald Trump's campaign seems to have been distracted.  Insofar as I'm…

The World Is Not Safe

Posted on March 1, 2017 at 7:00am 28 Comments

I was teased as a kid.  Some days were better than others and some others weren’t so great, but the fact is that from the time I entered first grade through high school graduation, there was something in me which drew the jibes, catcalls and slanders from my fellow students.  Somehow I was different, though exactly how I had no idea back then.  This whole business was made worse by the fact that for a great deal of that time, I was hyper-sensitive to that kind of abuse and could not…

Women's March 2017 – Impressions

Posted on February 1, 2017 at 9:00am 10 Comments

On the night of 8 November, 2016, in the wake of the stunning election of Donald John Trump to the presidency of the United States, an idea was started by a Facebook post and grew from there to proportions hitherto unheard of.  The idea?  A march, to react to the new presidency and insist on a maintenance of rights, for women, for LGBTQ folks, immigrants, legal or not, in short for anyone who stands to be minimized at least or injured at worst by the new administration.
