"Very powerfully written, Loren.  No! There are no sacred texts in existence. Not of Western culture nor Eastern. They all reflect the ruminations of Homo sapiens. By that, I do not mean "to think deeply," but I mean "to chew…"

About Me:
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

Principles upon which I stand

Posted on April 23, 2016 at 6:02pm 3 Comments

I endeavor to act with compassion and empathy towards all creatures faithful to reason.

My cause of action exists in the pursuit of justice over laws and institutions that exploit, manipulate, and dominate.

My body is inviolable, subject to my will alone.

My feelings are mine, alone. 

I respect the freedom of others,…

Hey, thanks for the welcome. I am a newbie to this sort of online forum and hope to be able to get up to speed without getting in the way. As to the music part, my wife is Claire Lynch. She's the musician in the family. I am just an old hack rock and roller who plays benefit gigs for good causes, mostly 'cause it's good to play. Just running my eye down the page beneath where this comment is flowing I see some really interesting conversations. This is encouraging! I am a Canadian (perhaps you already gathered that) and therefor am a different species from the US folks I imagine are involved in this conference. We have a writer up here named Margaret Atwood who said that Americans look at Canada as if looking at a two way mirror. They see themselves in us, while we, on the other side of the glass, see you as completely different from us in most every important way. That said, I harbour no grudges, am the husband of a New Yorker turned Alabamian and all is good. Nice to meet you.

Hello Joan , Yes i could not agree more , the fascists and capitalists of this world are trying to treat other people like they are just slaves to keep them rich instead of distributing the wealth equally .The greed of these people causes suffering and death to others and has to be stamped out ,the only problem is that they have gained power through politics and there cult religions and its hard to reverse what they have done to the world  .

Hello Joan,

Thanks for your kind welcome. There's an awful lot to catch up on in Atheist Nexus as a newcomer, but I did notice you're a birder. Same here. We're getting very close (a couple weeks) to the crazy time in Minnesota for the return of the warblers. I can hardly wait...

Best wishes,

Donatien

Joan, we were not personally affected by the storm at all. No damage. Yesterday I planted a hybrid pear tree that I bought locally, and tuesday planted a Honeycrisp apple. With the mild winter and massive rain they should settle in OK.

So sad to hear of your Ponderosa pines being lost. They are so beautiful. Glad it wasnt worse. You have had some climate challenges this year.

I have a gastroenterologist appointment next week to see if the gremlins have awakened. Vague anomaly on scan. Kind of down about that. Might be nothing. Either way, I have appointment next week with a world expert on GIST at OHSU. Kaiser wont pay but Im going anyway.

Hi Joan, thanks for the welcome. My avatar is a picture from a wild life reserve I visited while in South Africa.

Thank you all for the kind welcome. I look forward to participating here at Atheist Nexis.

Friends have given me the nickname Whit in the past, that seems to be a good way to distinguish the multiple Randys on the board.

Everyone enjoy the weekend!
