Does the Christian concept of man as a fallen creature influence our childrearing practices?

There are somewhere in the neighborhood of 57 countries that have banned spanking in schools and homes. Some have banned it only in schools, others both places. France was the most recent country to…Continue

I'm a newbie. In fact, I've never belonged to an online atheist group before even though I gave up on all gods many years ago. Having been raised in a radical Christian cult that operated as a closed…Continue

If I Ever Hear God's Voice, I'll Shit My Britches

 Let me begin by saying that I’ve never heard the voice of any god, demon or angel.Never! Trust me, I’ve never even gotten a phone call from one. I’m just as relieved to tell the you the truth, because if I ever did hear the voice of a god, any god, I’d shit my britches. On the one hand, it would be the most earth shattering conversation I’ve ever had, assuming that god would let me ask a few questions. But even if I’m rendered speechless from wonder, I can tell you that my life would never be…See More

What If You had to Dance the Polka to Get to Heaven?

Posted on January 19, 2018 at 2:00pm 4 Comments

Once again, I'm bringing Debunking Christianity, a website belonging to John Loftus to my blog. I am now a regular guest writer on John's site and proud to be part of his continuing dedication to debunking religion and its harmful effects on humankind.

This week, I wrote an article about the persistent belief in heaven and hell. Although often full of conflicting ideas about what these two places might be…

Five Things I Wish God Had Told Us Long Ago

Posted on January 13, 2018 at 11:30am 7 Comments

I started pestering my parents when I was just a kid with questions about why god as our heavenly father would withhold life-saving information from his creation. Needless to say, they never had an answer that satisfied me even back then. Those questions linger, popping up from time to time in adult conversations that I have with friends. To this day, no good answers have been provided. So, I wrote an article for Debunking Christianity where I listed…

Traveling Light

Posted on January 4, 2018 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

 One morning, I woke up and said to myself, “I want to travel the world.”

So, I sold everything that I owned and traveled the world for several years. That decision changed my life. Thirteen years later, I winter in Spain and am still crossing off places to explore from my bucket list. As an “untourist” I’ve learned so much about other countries, things I never would’ve known if I’d merely…

Teresa I'm sure you read the book

Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong.

If not I'm sure you will enjoy it.

Thanks for sharing Hang With Friends on Facebook.

Loren, you are another writer who inspires me to do better. writing The tone and timber of your words ring my bells. I am afraid I didn't let you know how much I enjoyed your piece about putting a warning on a hotel bible!. It inspired me to think, "Every action helps!"

Thanks for accepting, & yes lets ramp things up!

Nice to meet you, Teresa.

At times I wonder who or what (and especially WHERE!) my muse is.  I try to do a blog a month, but I missed August, mostly owing to a lack of motivation, yet I managed TWO this month, and it ain't over yet!

I do enjoy writing, quite a bit, in fact.  It's just that sometimes getting the words out can be a pain in the patoot.

Hey, Teresa!

At the risk of tooting my own horn, you might click on "PREVIOUS POST" once or twice.  I flatter myself to think that, when my muse DOES deign to visit, she does okay by me.

Hi Teresa! A fellow Hoosier I see. Welcome to A/N. I'm guessing your website address is from the song Embraceable You . Yes? Great song, by the way. Hope you enjoy the site.

Welcome,  Teresa! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that’s on your mind, Hang With Friends. You might also like Feminist Atheists.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the climate is changing so drastically. Writing to Congress is a group to share ideas so it's easy to write or call legislators.

After you’ve searched for topics of interest in “Groups” above and in the “Forums”, don’t forget to look at Latest Activity, found along the right margin of the page .
