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

"Tom Sarbeck, first, let me say thank you for reading my book. I hope you enjoy it. Second, you should be proud that you made a deliberate choice to not have children. My daughter has made that decision. My son has chosen to only have one."

The Bronte Sisters and the Evolution of Societies

I have long loved the works of the Bronte sisters, Emily, Anne and Charlotte. Such disturbing stories like Jane Eyre provided me with endless hours of entertainment as a young person. I was forbidden the reading of fiction in my devout Christian home, but I managed to hide books from the library and read them after dark with a flashlight under the sheets of my bed. As a young person, I related with the bleak outlook that the Bronte sisters captured in their books. Growing up in such harsh,…See More

The Unholy Alliance of Gods and Countries

Posted on October 8, 2017 at 9:00am 0 Comments

America, the land of the free and the home of the brave. Sounds like a song. Oh, wait a minute, it is a song. And, patriots everywhere in this exceptional country sing it, stand for it and well up inside whenever they hear it. Patriotism, a manufactured cultural response to wherever a human is born, still rings loud and clear in most countries. I've never been anywhere in the world, and I've been lots and lots of places, that lacked this feeling of love for country. The commitment to a birth…

Fear and the Preachers, Pimps and Politicians

Posted on September 28, 2017 at 9:00am 7 Comments

We're witnessing the politics of fear — AGAIN

There is something marvelously predictable about human behavior when under duress or living with general anxiety. If day in and day out you're worried about your job or your safety, if every time you open the door a new BIG problem is there to greet you, if you can't keep up with the onslaught of drama, if you don't even understand a good bit of what is being said…

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!"

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 .
