Welcome to Parenting Little Heathens

Hi moms and dads. Welcome to the parenting without religion group here at A|N. Please feel free to post an introduction, tell us about yourself or if you'd rather not, just jump right into any discussion.

Before you get started I would like you to be familiar with our Posting Rules and Guidelines. This will help clarify what this group is and what topics are appropriate or inappropriate.

Also, you might be interested in our list of atheist related parenting resources list. This is a work in progress, if you've found something you think is a good fit please post a reply and I'll see about adding it.

If at any time you would like to contact me, the easiest way is to send a private message through my page. However, in order to send any member a PM you must first be their friend.

Thank you for joining the group, I hope you enjoy being here.

I thought it started in a discussion somewhere then spilled over to the comment wall. after a while, it seemed that it should have moved behind doors, or something.
I don't like fighting.
Comment by HotMess on June 2, 2009 at 8:43pm
Honestly the fighting would have been just fine if it had been done in the Discussion Forum and not here.
I'm a fighter too: we need to hash issues like this out, but it's just too public out here.
Comment by Wendy on June 2, 2009 at 8:42pm
ah I didn't think of that...keep forgetting about the wall up there.

Hey, I'm up for a good debate anytime. This just wasn't one. At least, not by the time I started lurking. But I don't blame you at all for still wanting to respond to those remarks.

Would you all agree that for a specific discussion such as the college debate, that once it starts turning into a debate, or just a particularly focused discussion, one of the people discussing it starts a discussion, where it can continue and leave the wall free for more general comments and intros and whatnot? I don't know if that would help, but it would at least enable people to avoid the whole When Debaters Attack scenario we had going on here.

Sorry if the fighting (or whatever) has turned people off, that is sad. I was hoping this board would be a haven for people who don't have heathen parent friends IRL. But now I see that I guess poor people are from podunk towns who live off the government and don't pay any taxes and just take take take. Utter BULLSHIT

We're freethinkers, we're supposed to be enlightened and understand another's point of view, but hollee FSM when someone tries to inject some differing opinions based on true life experiences, they're pretty much called a welfare whore. Nice to make judgements faith

Nice. No wonder they call us angry.

Sorry realitychick, I did like the lightbulb joke
Comment by realitychick on June 2, 2009 at 8:15pm
I'm glad I could illuminate. Thanks for lightening up the Wall discussion.
Comment by HotMess on June 2, 2009 at 7:39pm
Wow ... that was profoundly enlightening. It's gonna take awhile to get this bulb changed over here.
However, your lil' ones have a "bright" future!
Comment by realitychick on June 2, 2009 at 6:54pm
Was that a rhetorical question?
Comment by realitychick on June 2, 2009 at 6:33pm
Wait, wait. I forgot a few. One to chase the toddler who grabbed the old bulb. One to then clean up the smashed bulb in the corner. One to hold back all the wee ones while that broken bulb is cleaned up.

Then the agnostics: One to claim no knowledge of whether the bulb needs or doesn't need to be changed.

And one to feed the baby.
Comment by realitychick on June 2, 2009 at 6:29pm
Six.

One to say he doesn't believe the light bulb needs changing. One to say she believes the light bulb doesn't need changing. One to test the bulb to see if it actually needs changing. One to refute the Intelligent Light proponents who believe the light bulb was meant to go out and will change itself if it is meant to be changed.

And one to turn on a flashlight while yet another changes the bulb successfully. The latter will immediately be claimed by Intelligent Light proponents as an agent of the Intelligence working through her.
