The Childless and Godless

This is a group to discuss the joy of being childless! I am amazed at the number of atheists I have met over the past few years that are childless by choice, here is a place to discuss stories and experiences!

I do think that a forum or message board format would be more useful, as topics of all sorts could be brought up, rather than having to section it into groups.

For example, I'd love to discuss clothes or dealing with life as a plus-sized person or social justice, or even just shit that happened to me, that I'd like to share with people. Traffic to individual groups is sparse, especially if you opt out of the email updates to avoid spam. A forum on the other hand could seperate a few larger general types of conversation and keep up-to-date topics.

Also, atheistnexus, while lovely to be at, gets less traffic simply because it's only atheists. Thinkatheist is hilarious to check up on because once a week it seems you get some crazy christian who gives us all John 3:16 in a personal message, then dissapears. Sometimes we get muslims who think they 'win' when people lose interest in arguing with them. And sometimes we get completely batshit crazy religious people. Not saying that we need to allow religious people to sign up, but I do think that the site design and construction needs to be rethought if they want to encourage discussion. I think groups could be secondary to a forum, as well.

Well, I have something to bitch about, so I'm going to start a discussion.  Feel free to bitch.

Sometimes I wonder whether it's worth having groups at all. We end up all scattered about the web, specially unpopular topics like this. I think we do need some speciality groups, but IME, it's more action to post on general boards... since between ourselves, we're just preaching to the choir ;)

At least one estaurant has the right idea:

Pause. Go into horizontal thinking mode. This article on deals with the evolutionary relationship between 'cooperation' and 'non-reproduction', within a society of ... amoebas. This in the context of many cells of multicellular organisms do not reproduce... making the multicellular organism (society) the result of cooperation between non reproducing members.

Now consider us modern humans, living in mass societies way beyond our genetic evolution, surviving such dense living arrangements through sheer imposition of imposed niceties... such as medicine, social programs, education, democracy... and how large percentages of us should not be reproducing.

In fact, all (I think) mass society organisms only have a small percentage of their members reproducing.

Is this what we are coming to? Maybe our best likelihood of desirable lifestyle choice should be amoebas!

Ok, I know it's a stretch, but it's a fun brain tease. :)

She thought I was not paying attention or that I was totally dumb and stupid. 

She'll think twice before she pulls that sh!t again.

There are more gun dealers per square mile than bars.

She said that the State of Colorado would benefit from receiving her pension and car when she enters a assisted living home.


How is that supposed to be a compelling argument? "We'll benefit from stealing your mom's/your stuff"!

When my mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer.  A visiting nurse came by trying to force my mother into a nursing home.  That woman wished she had never showed up.

I told that bed wench that I was capable of taking care of my mother and she went on to say, well, you are a young woman and you should not be taking care of her.  She went on to say that my mother was totally helpless and need constant care.

I noticed a crucifix around her neck, so I played her and her religion in the end of her visit.

She said that the State of Colorado would benefit from receiving her pension and car when she enters a assisted living home.  I told her, what she just said is total bullsh!t.  I told her when the money ran out at the overpriced assistant living center, the state of Colorado would perform legal euthanasia by putting her in a nursing home and that would only occur over your dead body. I said, my mother is not going into a assisted living home or a nursing home and you can tell Governor Bill Owens that he can kiss my arse.

She tried to justify her visit with her crap and I told her the following words.

There are three gun dealers that live across the alley, don't have me either do one of two things.

  • Call them and invite them over and bring their guns
  • Jump over their fence and invite them over and have them bring their guns

By that time, my mother got up to make her some bacon and eggs.

I asked her if she was a xtian and she said yes, and I asked her about the 5th commandment and she asked what was it.

I said, honor thy mother and they father.

Too bad, either no one taught you or you never bothered to learn.

NOW GET THE HELL OUT BEFORE I PUT MY FOOT UP YOUR A$$ SO FAR THAT THEY WILL HAVE TO OPEN JESUS MOUTH TO DUST THE BOTTOM OF MY SHOE OFF.

She skipped the steps leaving my house.
