God Willing

Perhaps it's just a figure of speech, but each of the Cuomo brothers have said "God willing" when referring to ending the coronavirus. However, like most people, I'm betting they really believe their…Continue

"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

God Willing

German Baptist Wedding

Posted on October 27, 2019 at 7:32am 2 Comments

I attended my first German Baptist wedding yesterday, and it was quite the experience.

German Baptists in my north-central part of Indiana are a mix of old and new ways of living. They drive vehicles and have cell phones, but don't own televisions, for example. The women put their hair up in bonnets and wear long dresses. The men all have beards and wear black.

Lorene, the bride, has worked on my farm for 6 years (along with several other GB girls). So she invited me to her…

Dot

Posted on September 7, 2019 at 7:13am 3 Comments

My dog, Dot, tags along when I go on long walks on county roads. She often gets distracted in her curiosity. The other day, she fell behind and never caught up. Since I went around the 4 mile block, I didn't see her on my return. I waited all day for her to come trotting home.

About 6 hours later, a young lady knocked on my door and asked if I'd lost a dog. There Dot was in the back seat of her small car. Relief! The lady asked her neighbors (in a small town of about 100 people over a…

Farmers Markets

Posted on September 4, 2016 at 8:12am 5 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 12 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.…

Randall -  thanks for the welcome.  I was raised a Roman Catholic and was indoctrinated with that religions supernatural beliefs. At some point in my life those beliefs no longer made sense to me. I have been on a lifelong mission to discover a worldview that I could live by. I think I have found it.  Al
