Obviously, I had made an exit from Atheist Nexus. I feel that I need to explain why it was okay for me to spend my time on other social sites, yet avoid this one like a plague.
My daughter's father had decided to attempt to get custody of our child. In most rational minds this would be impossible, as he had been absent for over 10 years of her life. BUT! He took the case to Michigan. I had lived in Michigan the year before he attempted custody. Here's where it gets a bit ugly.… Continue

Shut up. Feelst is a word.
Surely you've noticed that as a culture, we Americans love the
boyscouts. We love them SO hard.
But just as surely, as an Atheist, you've probably noticed that they are
a piece of shit organization. Probably.
By which I mean this: The Boy Scouts receive copious amounts of federal
moneys. Yet, um. They're a religious organization. They rejectify (also a
word, shut up) atheists, agnostics, homosexuals, and women.… Continue

I totally ripped this off from someone on DeviantArt. Their words, not my own. Still super funny. Particularly tasty entries get highlighted (by the power of bold!) Stupid commentary by me gets bold and italics! Because I am awesome.
FIFTY REASONS I DON'T BELIEVE IN EVOLUTION
1.) Because I don’t like the idea that we came from apes… despite that humans are categorically defined and classified as apes. Continue

I got the the hospital for my stress test this morning. It took half an hour for them to find a good vein for the IV then another half hour to get the EKG wires attached and do the resting set of echo pictures of my heart. Then the cardiologist came in so we could start the treadmill part of the test. After asking me a few questions about the pains I'd been having over the past week, she decided that since I'd been having some instances of pain with no exertion, that stress test would be… Continue

We end this Opus with the story of PDQ's actual composing period, his relationship with Prince Fred and his cousin, Betty-Sue Bach, his death and burial, and finally, an interview of Peter Schickele, the discoverer of PDQ, by Tom Snyder. I can only hope, in some small way, that these podcasts aided in bringing the truth about J.S. Bach's last and least son to the internet… Continue

Some of you know that I was in the hospital last week with chest pains. Fortunately, all the tests were negative. Tomorrow morning I will be wired up and and forced to run on a treadmill until:
a) I reached the desired sustained heart rate for the desired amount of time
b) I have a heart attack
c) I stumble, fall and break my nose on the hand rail.
(I'm hoping for "a" but "c" is a distinct possibility. I'm… Continue

My son and I were at the public park the other day. He was "dressed
out", as he says. Wearing some concoction of a costume, including a red
scarf around his head and hanging down his back, ninja style. He was
feeling fine, hip, cool, happy, and energized!
Now, imagine him running up to the swings, pushing off, soaring as high
as possible with a smile as wide as the sky. Next to him, the child on
the swing asks him, "What's that thing on your head for?"
My son… Continue

In this site there is two men for every woman Atheist Nexus member. Why comment on this? Because it seems that no one really believes me when I say there is not a lot of women out there who are atheist to date. Lets say there is ten percent of the population who is actually atheist, what part of them are actually a woman? How many of those are available? How many of those are actually interested in a relationship? I'm just saying, am I right or am I wrong?

My dad (Christian) said to me today after hearing that a person had been sworn into office on the Koran, "That is so stupid! I can't believe they swore him in to office on the Koran! This is a Christian nation!" I silently thought, " I can't believe they use the Bible to swear people in all the time!"
You know, it's interesting, that a person can't just take an oath on their own - like their word is not good enough and is meaningless unless it is put on the bible (or Koran). When did… Continue

I was just looking in my neighbor’s yard. There is a large wooden crate behind his deck that hasn’t been touched in the last 6 months. As far as I can tell, it is there to stay. This got me thinking about people’s belief in god.
If my neighbor told me that inside his crate was $1 billion, I would probably call him crazy. But if he told me that I could have the $1 billion, he might pique my interest for a moment. I’d want to see some… Continue
