Borderline Discussion Posts It is inevitable that there will be some crossover in topics and issues related to food production and consumption. I am not forbidding these topics outright, but there may be a better venue for them. Use your best judgment and post the topic in the group that best fits the focus of the discussion. Please do not cross post the same discussion twice in different groups, as it is against Atheist Nexus policy to do so.
If you are interested in food and gardening, it makes more sense to join Godless in the Garden and post your discussions there.
If you are interested in how agriculture and modern farming affect the environment, please join Environmental Atheists.
If you are interested in socio-economic justice, family farms, and fair trade practices, please consider Consumer Ethics instead.
If animal welfare as it relates to food production and consumption is your thing, please join us in Humane Atheists.

I work in a psychiatric hospital. The doctors who admit patients are general MDs. (Psychiatrists see patients after admission) Yesterday evening we received several calls from irate parents. A new doctor who was doing admissions yesterday actually…
No Jason Torpy it is you that should be banned for promoting atheism, a belief that has no foundation in reality and zero proof behind it. The letter was a mockery of your atheist beliefs. I request to the board here that they remove Jason for his unverifiable beliefs in atheism for which he has no proof other than his arrogance. The letter was a mockery of atheism.
