Just found the Latest Activity - and we just re-activated a/an FFRF here in Denver. Looks very well organized. Great new leadership. Intrusting enough, the new leader has/is Toastmasters International roots, and I have found that organization has turned Theist, such if you are an Atheists any leadership avoids recording Atheist speeches etc in the club I was a member. I contacted the home base, and they had no records of me ever even being a member, dues paid, speeches - nothing. May be more my clubs responsibility, but after 10 plus years one would think the upper management would at lest have looked into it. All they ever wanted to do was Evangelist, and the mere mention of doing organized discussion. debate and or Robert Rules of Order was ignored. Finally figured out why. Totalitarian entrenched organizations/members really avoid wanting to discuss, and or debate issues, i am thinking. Ignorance is bliss. Much more to that story, but looks like an excuse for theists to do religious meetings on Government property, and during working hours. Anyway, great site so far. Lonnie
Hi Ruth, I am still here doing my thing. It's nice to know that you are hanging in there spreading the word. I will check out the site that you mentioned and see what you are talking about..thanks for the heads up.
I will continue to support Atheist Nexus but I will also split my time between different sites dealing with the Secular Humanist issues also.
Not going anywhere, so don't write me off...lots of love and best wishes
Hi Ruth thanks for your welcome to the atheistnextus. I can see that I have a lot in common with a lot of people here. I'm active in the secular / humanist area in Australia and will enjoy a bit of lively debate. I generally write short stories and poems with and environmental and or atheistic thread. You might like my poem entitled 'Bills caught a virus is it it Just love' about the Dawkins virus on my web site. Its written in an Australian 'bush poetry' style which may be a bit different to what you're used to but hopefully entertaining all the same. My short story The Demon Hunter is a scifi with an atheistic twist.
Thank you very much for the welcome Ruth! I'll be certain to look at the links you provided. I have indeed joined a lot of groups - maybe too many, but I really like the look of the community and am excited to get stuck in!
