About Me:
I changed from faith to science. I am a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, a survivor of breast cancer thanks to the fine diagnostic work and treatment at Cancer Care Northwest, which included surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Dreadful stuff, but a wake up to living each and every minute. Life is to remember the past, live in the present and remember a preferred future. One can be good without god! My family demonstrates it

    Learning, for me, is  constant throughout life.  I welcome the opportunity to be taught.

    Dear Joan, Thank you. In your message you suggest that Atheist Nexus could be a suitable place to mention the discoveries that I have been reporting on Facebook? Let's see. Here's some background information: I am an archaeologist and simultaneously a strong atheist.  Because of this I have been able to observe, dissect, and analyse the archaeological record deeply and dispassionately which no Christian archeologist has ever been able to do, most of them being religiously biassed. That explains why I have discovered so much about the lost religion of our Neolithic ancestors---my eyes wide open, brain alert, all senses active as I move about the places where the first farmers lived and worshipped. The people were illiterate but they made use of symbols and images---and I have been exploring their world, unlocking secrets . . . and writing papers and books and lecturing. My problem is that I have discovered so much, and started several books---- about 6 on archaeology and 4 on atheism (the latter 4 are finished), and what with the prostate cancer my days seem to be numbered to probably 5 years left. This is why I do little on Atheist Nexus . . . there's so much to do. It will be a tragedy if I don't get all my knowledge published first. So I work and work, maybe 60 hours a week as I always have done . . . and I love it. Ever optimistic though. So as I reflect while I write this, I conclude that I don't want to open up something else, another outlet, that will take time away from the main job. I know you understand that. Affectionately, Terry

    Joan, I'm so looking forward to finding a publisher for THE LOST WORLD. It is written in diary format, chapter by chapter reporting the discoveries of the day and giving away my thinking and consequent excitements. The other books are being prepared more like standard textbooks--as they need to be. All the best to you, Terry.
