Hello Oregon happy Atheist! some Mormons came to the house a few months ago and said they were surprised at how happy my wife and I are because we are Atheists and we explained we are not mad at god merely just don't believe in the existence of such a thing and their minds were blown
Well thanks for responding anyway. Shame, I do enjoy the Buffalo Wild Wings' (I love wings, one of the main things I was looking forward to coming back to the states) and Powells' books in Portland though. If I'm ever in Eugene I'll notify you.
I think it might have to be the inability to deal with the fact that I'm dying, whether its now or later since the disease has spread too far to fully cure. So I understand it since a number of friends deal with it with distance, but I still wish they would stay in touch. What has the Students for Choice group been doing?
I don't really know what's going on with them! I've had to drop out of school. It turns out my diagnosis of fibromyalgia was wrong and I've actually had lyme disease for 10+ years. Treatment is hard to get because its controversial, but I'll die w/o it. Anyway, I'll be getting treatment in San Fran in May, but in the meantime I'm falling pretty rapidly. So I don't know what they are doing...they don't talk to me anymore. :( But I'm glad you've found a good Atheist group! That would be interesting to be a part of.
the thing is everyone does have a fair chance. if you are able bodied......even if you are not able bodied, you still have a fair chance. i know that you have the best intentions to help everyone, and make sure that people who are delt unfair hands in life are given better hands. the thing is, to be clitche, life is unfair. I should know, i live in the HOOD in northeast kansas city, i didnt grow up here, but my parents were given unfair hands and they made it so their life didnt suck as bad, with out any help. it's hard for people to do that now a days, since people can just leach off of government money. trust me, i see it every 1st of the month. any thoughts?
hi Shireen, thanks a lot for adding me. Saw your name on the feminist atheist group, clicked your avatar, read that you study anthropology, which piqued my interest. Although I'm a high school dropout I'm very interested in biology (incl. anthropolgy). Any book-recommendations for amateurs? Have a nice day, greetings from Germany!!!
We're not having meetings over the summer, but there are OC Atheist and Atheist united meetings. The OC Atheist meetings (http://www.ocatheists.com/) are pretty sweet and the Atheists United meetings meet every second sunday of the month and are pretty neat as well. I think AU shifted its meeting place and can let you know where it is now.
If you're just bored in the OC hit us up on facebook and we can toss over invites to the social stuff that we're doing that's not associated with the club.
