Winter Solstice offers a time to look back on the past year to acknowledge my challenges and the things I chose to do to solve those problems. This recent past year was a very hard one for me with the death of my oldest son, Cary, a victim of cancer at the young age of 53 years and one month. This loss turned out to be harder on me than I imagined. Thankfully, Craig and Laura and their families walked these dark days with me.
After wallowing in that pain I turn my attention to the…Continue
People with skills on the computer have a future, as far as employment goes. Individuals with talents such as those used here on Atheist Nexus will have the jobs of the future. Production of goods will continue to flow offshore, leaving the construction trades and service jobs for domestic employment. More people need training for international…Continue

The goal is to develop and implement a new vision for the future of humanity in space.
The current economic, social and government systems are inappropriate for a life in space and for the future. If we all them to proceed then humanity is doomed…Continue
Ok, so of course I have to start off with why I became a christian in the first place. I was 'saved' when i was 14 at the end of June, right before my first year of high school. During my 6th and 7th grade years, I became very depressed. I had no true interest in life and in was due largely to the fact that I had no plans for my life. I didn't know what I wanted, and basically let everybody else, but myself, make my choices.
My 8th grade year, I went to a new school and was surrounded…Continue
