What Are The Correct Words?

I am puzzled, how the words 'convert' and 'deconvert' are used.   It seems that some people call it deconvert, when a former religious person becomes an atheist.   But in my understanding, only…Continue

I am looking for my mindmate, for a serious, close, bonded relationship growing old together.

You are Philemon, if you
~ are a man between about 58 and 68;
~ are a university graduate;
~ are an atheist and a skeptic and free of woo-woo-believes;
~ are childfree by not having any children of any age;
~ are politically between left and green;
~ are bearded and natural by no body-modification;
~ do not smoke,
~ have high ethical standards and values like honesty, sincerity, monogamy, faithfulness, reliability, responsibility;
~ are sensitive, emotional, caring, rational, hypoanimalistic, a deep thinker;
~ you value time sharing activities with a partner much more than money.

With the exception of the beard, I am all of the above myself.

Men, who are cheating or who are promiscuous and looking for uncommitted physical affairs of any kind, evoke my nausea.  I consider myself as demisexual.

My English may sometimes be a bit odd, because I am German. My search for a compatible mindmate is world wide, if there is a common language, which can be English, German, Spanish, French, Dutch or Italian.


My search is world wide.  In the times of email, telephone and air travel, geographical distance is much easier to overcome than mental distance.




I Am Not Maude

I am interested to discuss interesting topics with anybody in any group or forum.   But I am not interested in individual contacts with any Harold, that means with anybody young enough to be the son or grand son, that I am happy not to have.  

I ignore all friends request without meaning any offence or an individual rejection.  

Anybody in my age group is welcome to contact me by email (  The closer someone is to my own age, the more I am interested in private contacts.

Discarding The Myth Of The Free Will

Posted on April 12, 2012 at 11:46am 0 Comments

While learning about evolutionary biology and evolutionary psychology, I got more and more aware of how much people are determined by subconscious instinctive urges and impulses. As a side effect, already for a long time I have been implicitly and slowly discarding the myth of the free will, but postponing to consciously think this through.

Implicitly the entire ERCP blog is based upon the concept of finding a partner, whose fulfilling my own…


Mr. Mighty's Blunder

Posted on February 4, 2012 at 2:34pm 0 Comments

In many societies and cultures, there are fables, tales, sagas and myths about the creation of humans by deities.    So today I am writing my own creation fable.

Mr. Mighty's Blunder

Mr. Mighty is a very powerful entity.   He likes to create things.   Unfortunately, he is not very clever.  He learns by trial and error, often making a few blunders on the way.   And he is slightly immature.


Morals And Self-Control In The Absence Of Religion

Morals And Self-Control In The Absence Of Religion

Religions supply a predefined set of morals.   The higher power, deity or deities is or are believed to reward moral behavior and to punish transgressions.   People are motivated, instigated, coerced or manipulated to follow rules restraining their behavior, either with or without any insight in the benefits and necessity of the rules.    …

Why The Word Atheism Should Not Be Taken Too Literally

Why The Word Atheism Should Not Be Taken Too Literally

Atheism literally means without a god.    Superficially it serves well as a label for the easy distinction from people with any religious belief.   Apistia as the absence of all irrational beliefs would be more precise and more exact, but many people have never heard this word, while most people have at least a fuzzy understanding of the word atheism.

Some people take the definition…

I think your suggestion to post profiles in Atheist Singles is a good one.

Maruli, after all these months, I feel liberated. With all the people making their personal stories known, the patterns begin to emerge so powerfully that they cannot be denied. Remaining silent for all those years, nothing changed. Speaking out and telling my story, and others telling their stories, we are being heard, not only by the atheist community by the general public. I have hope that family violence will be taken seriously by all the institutions: family, education, health care, laws and law and order. I want you to know how comforting it has been for me knowing you and Ruth cared enough to reach out to me until I assured you I had a strategy. It is all working out as I had hoped.

Sorry I can't respond to your question about tweets. I've avoided Twitter because the short word  length and fast pace make higher thinking impossible.

I really do appreciate your concern and the fact that you are available when people need help. Believe me, there are times when I do need to reach out and I know I have a trusted friend to whom to turn.

Maruli, thank you for your care and compassion. Let me assure you that everything I write is deliberate and for a purpose.  I am not venting, although, surely it must sound like it. I want people to wake up to the fact that domestic violence is real, it is in all classes and economic groups, it suffers under so many myths that people don't understand the causes, treatment and prevention. 

I don't know how many years I have left, but I sure want to make sure that the public becomes aware and faces the reality of violence in the home. 

When I was an army officer's wife I discovered that our abuse records were kept in a locked file away from the other files. My husband was a dentist in the hospital and they were more concerned about protecting him than our children. Seeing that personally, I began asking questions as I did my interviews about where they kept their files for abusing families and heard just a hint of the same practice. 

Doing my background work, I found evidence that there is a correlation between occupation of the abuser and child and wife abuse. Researchers looked at a community by occupation and got records from hospitals, doctors, nurses, police, counselors, ministers, priests and rabbis, shelters, and any source that would interface with an abused family. They counted the abuse numbers by occupation of fathers; for every 1,000 carpenters, 1,000 lawyers, 1,000 biologists, etc.  This is what they found:

The occupations with the highest abuse records are:

1) ministers; 2) physicians; 3) lawyers and judges; 4) police and law enforcement; 5) truck drivers. 

The occupation with the lowest abuse record is symphony orchestra conductors. It seems that a conductors needs cooperation and desire to perform to a level of excellence that requires cooperation, not competition.  

It seems there are personality factors that fit a person's personality profile. 

1)reference to higher authority; 2) use instrumental behavior (that means the work requires doing whatever needs doing, surgeon cut into people, police restrain people, truck drivers follow rules to reach their destinations.) 3) intolerance for ambiguity (everything is black and white, there is a right and wrong way to do something). 

So, you see, family violence is a pervasive, hidden crime that at one time was legal. That is changing, but we still have babies, wives and husbands die in a family violence episode. Thank you for your concern.

It concerns me how too few females feel driven to participate on AN, and how some who do suck-up to patriarchy. I think the atheist movement is going through a difficult period because all the figureheads are defenders of patriarchy. Many young males join with the sentiment that because we're atheist, any sexism issue is simply passé, this makes all ages of females uncomfortable, as sexism is still alive an well, unbeknownst to them.

I like how your personal ad (profile) leaves few stones unturned. So many singles out there seem to think that communication requires no effort and you have to extract info from them as they play being coy.
