"May the Force..."

Started this discussion. Last reply by jay H Jan 13, 2016. 6 Replies

Hillary Clinton ended the Democrat debate last night with "May the force be with you". I though that was great! No "God bless America (or you)". She did mention "god" once, when she said "God-given…Continue

The "You ain't no Muslim" remark made by a bystander in the London subway stabbings has been a major internet sensation. Substitute "Christian" for Muslim, and we atheists would be saying it ALL the…Continue

You all know Sisyphus--trying to roll a boulder up a hill. I'm just wondering what his feelings are.Continue

Farmers Markets

Posted on September 4, 2016 at 8:12am 7 Comments

This post has nothing to do with atheism, and it doesn't fit into any group. So I'll just add it here.



As some of you may know, my daughter and her husband (Emily and Nate) operate an organic vegetable (mostly) farm. Tillable land is about 100 acres, so it's fairly large.



For close to 10 years they've been taking their produce to farmers markets on Saturday mornings. They started with one, then expanded to three. They're back to one, and after this year, there will be… Continue

How Not To Die

Posted on February 8, 2016 at 8:13am 14 Comments

Just a little over a year ago I wrote a blog entitled "The Big Fat Surprise", in response to a book of the same title that basically said eating fatty products--bacon and such--was not so bad for you afterall (i.e., the Adkins diet). It seemed to be well documented. I shouted HURRAH!  I also read Wheat Belly, which wants us to stop eating grains, whole or not. Another decision.

Alas, woe is me--confused and distraught. Upon reading Dr.…

There, but for...

Posted on October 30, 2015 at 8:01am 22 Comments

As an atheist, a lot of little things bother me-- two, in particular.

How often, after a tragedy of some sort, do we hear "Our thoughts and prayers are with the families"? How inane is that sentence? Yes, I realize it's meant to be wellmeaning and supportive, but is it really necessary? What else can be said? I heard it many times after my father died last month. I inwardly cringed and said thank you. But I wanted so much to say, please don't pray for me. 

Far worse than that…

THE BIG FAT SURPRISE

Posted on January 27, 2015 at 9:00am 8 Comments

For nearly all my adult years (>50),  I've been told to eat what was recommended to be the most healthy foods and avoid the "bad guys". No to whole milk. No butter. No red meats. No eggs. White poultry meat only. Eat lots of grains and carbohydrates.

We've been duped into believing that eating fat makes you fat, and that a high fat diet increases cholesterol numbers which in turn leads to heart diseases. No proof, just common sense. For 50 years the American Academy of Pediatrics…

Hey hey Randall!  Nice to meet you.  Do you live in Humboldt county?  I joined this blog to meet and socialize with other "nones" in my area as though I suspect there are many here we don't seem to get together as atheists. Just looking for birds of a feather if you will. And I am so tired of my theist friends.....

Thanks for the warm welcome and pleasant greeting, so in hoping this note finds you having a great day , lift a glass ...cheers!!

Thank you for the warm welcome, everyone seems very nice but still it is a little intimidating since everyone seems to know each other so well already. I think I'm gonna like it on here, but it may take me a little while to feel comfortable enough to really start to open up.

Hi Randall! Like a few others, I am still trying to figure this out. LOL

Thanks for the welcome. I'm still figuring out how this forum works. It's a lonely world sometimes and it's nice to know there are others out there that think the same way.

Hi Randall, thanks for the welcome! I've been in Wooster about 25 years now - it's not terribly memorable. Beautiful, vital area with a deeply ingrained and deeply unfortunate religious and conservative bent. Just found this place, looks promising so far. Hope to see you around!
