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

Five Things I Wish God Had Told Us Long Ago

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 five things that I wish god had told his…See More

"It isn't Shame. The termonology if, which is rarely admitted  is "I'm not proud of it." Ask Roy More and his supportors what thay think."

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…

Religion Has Been Harming Children for Centuries

I'm honored to have been invited to be a regular contributor of Debunking Christianity, a website belonging to the sensational Christian apologist turned atheist, John Loftus. John has published many books. He's a religious myth buster extraordinaire. My first article was published a few days ago. It's entitled:…

The Bible is Behind the Times

Posted on December 29, 2017 at 10:00am 11 Comments

I didn't grow up celebrating Xmas.

My religious parents considered it a pagan holiday, along with Easter and all other holidays. We did, however, get a small gift for our birthdays. One year, my annual gift was a bible with my name engraved upon it. I had waited all year for my one gift and this was what I got, a bible. I must admit, I was a tad disappointed, but I smiled and graciously accepted it…

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.

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 .
