I've been super busy with school this semester -- no time for Atheist Nexus, sadly!!
If anyone who's around here a lot wants me to toss them moderation privileges to run this group or anything, just send me (Sara) a message! Thanks!

Removed ability to send mass messages to everyone in the group. At 1000+ members, that seems like asking for spam.

Offer still open if anyone active in the group wants moderation privileges, but it appears everything has been going smoothly with all kinds of great discussions without moderation. Fantastic! :)

I have not had a problem with creative writings per se either. My problems stem from dogma masquerading as education. :-)

Clarence, the most serious problem with religious devotees and fairy tales is that they can't tell the difference between fact and fiction. 

I have always loved fantasy fiction AND SF, but I always knew all those tales were just that.  Tales.  Even the buybull always felt like a grim version of Grimm's Fairy Tales to me....but I kept my mouth shut for 30 years to keep my somewhat fundie mother appeased.  I did quit going to church when I graduated from high school.  Enuf was enuf.

About having a dream, or a specific goal, I can certainly identify with Buzz Aldrin's post-Apollo 11 depression.  What do you do when you've actually been to the moon, and can't go back?

My own dream was realized by the time I was 20, and it was over.  I've spent most of the rest of my life supporting myself with boring desk jobs....at subsistence pay.  The only exceptions were the years I spent as a temp at KCET's Auction in its heyday, and working weekends at the Cat Hotel after I officially retired.

The only thing I really wanted to do was skate, and I was too stupid to realize that that was one of the shortest "careers" in the world.

They never grew beyond fairy tales those religious devotees.

Since most religions oppose family planning and contraception, we are already at least halfway to ecological collapse at their bidding.  And they WANT it that way!

Every Abrahamic religion has predicted "the end of the world," and consider that a GOOD thing.

I don't think I was ever a dreamer, so I don't really ''get'' it.

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 14, 2015 at 2:43pm

I think I understand living in the now, but I'm a bit of a dreamer I guess.

Comment by Patricia on April 14, 2015 at 2:38pm

One reason I don't think too far ahead, & after cancer, I quit 'futurizing' by trying to live in the now. I recycle & try to leave a smaller footprint, but have no idea of how to deal with killer religions.

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 14, 2015 at 2:33pm

Just bones in a thousand years aye?  

I think there's a good chance we will destroy ourselves as well, but  I'm not quite as pessimistic as you Patricia.  But who knows?

Comment by Patricia on April 14, 2015 at 2:26pm

Pessimist I guess Spud, but I don't hold much hope for us. If religion doesn't kill us first, the damage to our air/water/food will. Nobody seems to pay attention to all the warnings & do something drastic about any of it.
