"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 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.…

There, but for...

Posted on October 30, 2015 at 8:01am 15 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…

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

Thank you for the welcome. I only know one other nonbeliever in this town. Most of my friends are christians and most do not know my feelings about faith. It can be very frustrating.
