It's to the sequence (chronologically accurate, I believe) of some of the most important (IMHO) documents or fragments in the shaping of our civilization. I think words are important and seeing the words in a new way can sometimes teach us new things. The size of the word in each image is directly related to the number of times it is used in the document. I find the inverse relation between religion words and socio-political words over time encouraging. You should be able to identify the documents from the image names/links.

Since we're the folks who remember a little history ... I've posted something on my blog that I would be interested in reactions to: http://glennsogge.blogspot.com/2009/10/gist-of-matter.html is the specific post. Comments there, here or on my page are appreciated.

Atheist since about 13-14 so that makes it about 45 years. I've never really been 'not out' -- never had a reason to make it a big deal. But it's never been hidden, just usually irrelevant.

I've been lucky, I guess. My experience hasn't exactly tracked those of others here. I haven't been around my family other than yearly visits for many years so maybe that helped. But, being atheist has never been a big deal. If friends weren't told they probably guessed. Lately, though, I've been revisiting my life -- I guess I have as hard time dealing with the same issues now as I did in high school (40+ years ago.) The socio-political issues, not the personal ones. Kids are getting up and out, more time. My blog -- Old & (Not Always) In The Way -- is meant for them and anyone else who is interested. There are some atheistic specific posts mixed in with the other things -- my not-collecting-stamps hobbies and interests. I occasionally show up at Greta's place and Hemant's abode under the moniker 'FormerComposer'. I'm on Facebook, too. Give me jingle.

Hey a place where I can make classical literary, social, political references and not be looked at like I had 2 heads. I have the damnedest time talking to kids (under 40) and when I say something like "et tu Brutus" they get this "tharn" look in their eyes. So on old fart to the rest of you HI! I'm glad to get to civilization from Gilligan's Island. Though I did have a crush on Ginger.

Hi Kimon, Congratulation on your bumper crop, hearing about it is making me hungry. My family is Buddhist so I guess I’m a lifelong atheist too And I think I know what you mean, as a kid I always believed that all the God talk was just something used to keep kids inline, like Santa Claus. But as a young adult meeting people who actually believed in this stuff, and not just for the benefit of kids, surprised the literal hell out of me… I still don’t understand how normally rational people about everything else in their lives can turn off rational thinking for this one thing?

Hahaha, well we had a bumper crop of potatoes, corn, tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, green beans, collards, turnips, okra, and eggplant already (good to be in the south) melons are coming along nicely and we are getting ready to start prepping for a fall planting. We have a couple of pigs ready to process and goats, chickens, turkeys and guinea hens. Life is pretty good.

I know what you meant by "hobby farmer," but the image that popped into my head was that you grow hobbies. How's this year's crop of stamp collecting?
Comment by Kimon Brown on June 21, 2009 at 10:31am
Hi all my name is Kimon, I am a life long atheist, well at least from the time i was 7 or 8. I have spent most of my life not in the closet but in a state of disbelief that people can possibly believe the things they do. The older I get (48 years young in March) the less patience I have for ignorance. I am a full time caregiver for my wife, an artist and a hobby farmer. We have a little piece of land tucked far back from view and spend most of our time here aside from trips to the doctor. I am stuck here in the buckle of the bible belt by choice and love it here although am quite frustrated by the constant barrage of prioritization I am subjected to anytime I leave the "COMPOUND". I look forward to participating and being part of this community.
