We have spent one memorable year together.. It's been a time of growth and change in the mental health system that we have explored together. We are a vital part of the Recovery Advisory Committee that has guided the implementation of Comprehensive Community Services. This Medicaid benefit could potentially speed the recovery of people in Milwaukee County. It may seem strange or unromantic talking about the work that brought us together but that work is an outgrowth…Continue

I have been on Facebook for a few years now an actively participate in several atheist groups. It has been difficult to be part of atheist groups outside of the internet. However, I got an atheist magazine for my companion as a solstice present and found information about the south-east Wisconsin free thinkers which has a regular monthly meeting and a radio show. In addition swift is part of atheist nexus an atheist alternative to Facebook. I posted a couple of my atheist blog entries on the…Continue

When I check on the atheist groups on Facebook I regularly read stories of people being harassed by their families of devoutly religious people. Even though Facebook has settings that allow people to block individuals who might insult or post negative comments, somehow these believers seem to break through. These long suffering and I suspect somewhat dense atheists don’t understand you could even have a profile for one set of friends and a profile for a second set.
But the basic…Continue
We’ve all been there at some point. You log onto your favorite social media website like Facebook, and as you scroll through the many status updates in your news feed with highlights about your Aunt Martha’s cat, or your friend’s son that lost a tooth, you see this:Continue
it all started innocently enough with a facebook friend who posted the latest vaccine scare.
i usually stay out of said friend's post since they tend to be very gody and i don't really care about her beliefs, but this one annoyed me enough to comment on it and soon enough a champion has arrived to defend the honor of the anti vaccination crowd.…
Well got kicked off Facebook again....
They must have something against atheists.
And this time, I had well over a thousand followers...
That alone should tell you something.
But honestly, maybe it is a good thing.
Seems there are those on FB who just like to hunt atheists....
But if you fight back, YOU ARE THE BAD PESON!
Now, these people don't have to come to my page..but they do.
So I think it is time I just walk away from…Continue

And I can't be the only one!
Is anyone else just the least bit disturbed by how integrated everything is getting on the internet? Maybe I'm just old and fussy, or maybe I just value both my time and my privacy enough that I don't want to squander one to control the other, but I really don't like this trend of running every little thing that is done on the internet through facebook or twitter. I don't "tweet" at all, but I started an account when it was first getting popular, made a…Continue
Over on Facebook, a Christian, named Shawn, attempted to challenge my atheism. He said: “The way I look at it you have a 50/50 chance of being right. So what happens if you are wrong? I will even ask you this: what happens if you are right?”
The following is my reply . . .
You’re paraphrasing Pascal’s wager, Shawn. According to Wikipedia . . .
Pascal’s Wager (or Pascal’s Gambit) is a suggestion posed by the French philosopher,…
