Hi Joan, Thanks for the info and welcoming me to the site, I changed from faith to science too, although it took me a very long time and I found it to be a very painful process to lose my faith too! I envy those who don't have to go through that process. I didn't have the internet in the Army, but I was able to go to the local book shop and read the books on western philosophy, which set me on my path to becoming a Humanist. Anyway sorry for the life story! ;)

Joan,

There have now been three Supreme Court cases dealing with the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) as it pertains to federal laws. A review of the opinions show that RFRA was strongly supported by 8 of 8 justices in Gonzales v. O Centro Espirita (2005), by 9 of 9 justices in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby (2014) and by 9 of 9 justices in Holt v Hobbs (2015). Thus, the time is ripe for Atheists to challenge being essentially forced to bear the message, "In God We Trust" – in violation of their religious beliefs - as the price to pay for simply choosing to carry the nation's currency in their pockets.

 

In fact, in the seven federal circuits where "In God We Trust" has yet to be litigated, challenges are now being organized to do just that. Accordingly, I am searching for individuals and organizations who wish to serve as plaintiffs and who are from those seven circuits (i.e., who are from Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia or Wisconsin). If you or anyone you know would like to participate, please email contact information – including city and state of residence - to NoMoreIGWT@gmail.com as soon as possible.

 

Because the Supreme Court has indicated that it is more concerned about constitutional guarantees when children are involved, those who wish to protect their children from the government’s religious transgressions are especially encouraged to write. Please be assured that we will move for a court orders to keep the names of families with children under seal. (To date, those motions have always been granted, and – as far as I know – the families’ names have always remained undisclosed.)

 

Thank you.

 

- Mike 

 

PS - Please pass this on to any others who you think might have an interest. Thanks, again.

Hey, Joan!  I got a real goodie for you, courtesy of Seth Andrews!  Please have a look ... and a LAUGH!

Joan, I'm so looking forward to finding a publisher for THE LOST WORLD. It is written in diary format, chapter by chapter reporting the discoveries of the day and giving away my thinking and consequent excitements. The other books are being prepared more like standard textbooks--as they need to be. All the best to you, Terry.

Dear Joan, Thank you. In your message you suggest that Atheist Nexus could be a suitable place to mention the discoveries that I have been reporting on Facebook? Let's see. Here's some background information: I am an archaeologist and simultaneously a strong atheist.  Because of this I have been able to observe, dissect, and analyse the archaeological record deeply and dispassionately which no Christian archeologist has ever been able to do, most of them being religiously biassed. That explains why I have discovered so much about the lost religion of our Neolithic ancestors---my eyes wide open, brain alert, all senses active as I move about the places where the first farmers lived and worshipped. The people were illiterate but they made use of symbols and images---and I have been exploring their world, unlocking secrets . . . and writing papers and books and lecturing. My problem is that I have discovered so much, and started several books---- about 6 on archaeology and 4 on atheism (the latter 4 are finished), and what with the prostate cancer my days seem to be numbered to probably 5 years left. This is why I do little on Atheist Nexus . . . there's so much to do. It will be a tragedy if I don't get all my knowledge published first. So I work and work, maybe 60 hours a week as I always have done . . . and I love it. Ever optimistic though. So as I reflect while I write this, I conclude that I don't want to open up something else, another outlet, that will take time away from the main job. I know you understand that. Affectionately, Terry

Learning, for me, is  constant throughout life.  I welcome the opportunity to be taught.

You're in good historic company as a radical.  I was following the Talpoit Tomb, boy did the Jews shit at the thought of pissing off the witch burners!  It blows their whole fairy tale out of the water.  I can't understand how people can look around the fact, "Jesus...the organization that bears his name is history's greatest contradiction to his doctrines

LemPoot!"

Hey, Joan!

Here's a little something in re: the last election which I suspect you should see.

Thanks! I'm still trying to figure the site out. I'm so excited to find it!!

Greetings-  You asked if you could cite "my piece on morality" on Twitter and Facebook; certainly you may. Please note that I have a number of such pieces, admittedly putting across the same idea to different audiences at different lengths. The longest piece is the first one I posted, so it is at the bottom of the last page of my blog. Pieces related to ethics are on all three pages. See http://www.atheistnexus.org/profiles/blog/list?user=2wluhkj14fnrb

Thank you Joan! A lot of what you said are some of the things I've come across in my search of educating myself so when I do find myself in a conversation I will have the proper tools to back up what I'm saying and how I feel. I know that with time and continuing to learn more I will be more confidant and content in my stance. Thanks for your words I really appreciate it.

Thanks Joan.  Your comment about our insults helping him out was a very helpful reminder.

Based what I hear on the news, diabetes may not have long to live!  I heard a news story somewhere about a researcher using stem cells to create cells which generate insulin and can regulate sugar levels in the blood!

It may be a while, but one day, I'd love to toast you with a Spanish Coffee, such the formula I described, and have you enjoy one as well!  We'll figure it out!

Okay, Joan ... try this on for size:

Start with a brandy snifter or stemmed glass coffee mug (ideally).  Ingredients:

  • One jigger Kahlua
  • One jigger Cointreau
  • Hot black coffee
  • Whipped cream on top
  • Sprinkle cinnamon over all

Trust me ... it is the best damned dessert coffee you ever had!
