"The RC church is in many ways evil. My 12 years in its schools and many non-fictional accounts persuaded me. My gripe with fiction? Authors take too long to tell their stories. I did enjoy the 1910 novel Phantom of the Opera. In three month I read…"

"I had heard of the Golden Compass when I was a good Catholic boy, so naturally my negative opinion of it was given to me by righteous authority. Because of that, I never read it. I have seen the movie, and reconsidering it as an atheist, I can tell…"

"I disagree with Michael Penn. There are religions that don't offer eternal paradise that have followers, so we can reasonably assume that not all Christians are motivated by reward of faith. I suspect that there are a multitude of reasons…"

"It is stupid and immature for people to think that the only way to have fun is with sex, drugs, alcohol, and tobacco. Those types of people are who always ruin things for me and make my life miserable."

"Who knows what run of the mill believers think (or if they think). But for those who formulated the doctrines, the harm inflicted on the earth isn't a bug, it's a feature."

About Me:
I have always had an affinity towards non-human life and I devote the majority of my time to caring for my adopted family of cats, dogs, and an iguana - and the planet Earth. I am, thankfully, happily, and ABSOLUTELY PERMANENTLY childfree. I am also drug free, tobacco free, alcohol free, and religion/god free.

I'm sorry about your cat. I love animals. I've had dogs the past thirty years and it's always tough to lose one.

Welcome, Tonya! 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 Women Atheists, Female Atheists, and possibly Feminist Atheists.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the Texas climate is changing so drastically.

After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.
