About Me:
I am an 80-year-old curmudgeon; I like the 1500s spelling best and definition:
"An ill-tempered (and frequently old) person full of stubborn ideas or opinions."
I changed from faith to science. I am a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, a survivor of breast cancer thanks to the fine diagnostic work and treatment at Cancer Care Northwest, which included surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Dreadful stuff, but a wake up to living each and every minute. Life is to remember the past, live in the present and remember a preferred future. One can be good without god! My family demonstrates it

Part 4 Booms and busts punctuate the history of capitalism; it is a systemic problem.

Part 4 Booms and busts punctuate the history of capitalism; it is a systemic problem.

Remember General Motors, producer of automobiles? Over the last thirty years, General Motors created a subsidiary called GMAC, General Motors Acceptance Corporation. It is a bank. It lends money. It began by lending money to people to buy cars because their wages couldn’t pay for them. Then GMAC discovered they could make more money off the interest of the loan than they could make…

Part 3  We reached the limits of the kinds of capitalism this society can endure.  

Turning, now, to the big business community, the last thirty years have been spectacular. Everything about the working class, with the introduction of computers, U.S. workers became more and more productive. We had a thirty-year period of rising labor productivity. Each year the worker produces more, and the wages stayed the same. 

The gap between what the workers…

Part 2 How do people cope with so many changes taking place in such a short period?

Part 2 How do people cope with so many changes taking place in such a short period? 

First, wage-workers dealt with the end of rising wages by adding women and other family workers to the paid labor force, and they worked more hours per year. Between the 1970s and today, the average number of hours worked per year by a U.S. citizen rose by about 20 percent. We worked 20 percent more hours on the job than we did thirty years ago. By comparison, for example, if you…

Part 1 Why did the wages stop going up? There are four reasons.

Part 1 Why did the wages stop going up? There are four reasons.

There were a hundred and fifty years of rising standard of living for all people. Workers every decade enjoyed more because their wages rose, and they could buy more. They understood more and more work meant they could buy more stuff, i.e. homes, cars, education, health care, retirement, and recreation.  

In the 1970s, that history of the United States stopped. Real wages…

Hi Joan, thanks for welcoming me to A/N. I hope to meet some like minded people in my area, but they're pretty few and far between in this part of the country. I travel quite a bit for business and find the West Coast, NW, and NE of the country much more accepting of non-theistic ideals.-Mike S.

I'm so sorry, Joan. Feel free to send me messages if you want to talk.

Hugs, Ruth.

Thank you, Joan. As a student of life and a seeker of all things logical I often ran into a site with this "Irreverend Mike"-15 years ago I dove into the battle of ones faith. What faith I had prior to 15 years ago was not suitable an answer. Thus I dove ALL in and opened my mind towards all views. When I dove-I ran back into this "Irreverend Mike", engaged contact and I am forever grateful. Looking to give a "shout out" and say "Thank you", whether he remembers me or not, I found this site. I am excited!! Thank you again for your welcoming!

Thanks, Joan, I was wondering when someone would notice!  I figured it was about time to update things (the old pic is at least six to seven years old), so I pressed my webcam into service and ... VOILA!

Hi Joan thanks for your message. I've been a critical thinker since childhood but never actually considered myself an atheist. I've actually decided that's what I consider myself not so long ago! I do watch a lot of stuff about evolution but I feel like a bit of a noob among a group of self-proclaimed atheists! So hard to find that in real life!

Hey, Joan!

I just re-watched Seth Andrews' interview with David Silverman about the book, Fighting God, and I see what you mean.  I think it's less that Seth was irritated than that 1) he was being something of a devil's advocate to draw out more points and detail on David's positions and 2) that Seth himself is NOT a firebrand or not as comfortable with that kind of persona, though I HAVE heard him go on some SERIOUS rants on TTA and more than once.

My $0.02 worth.
