Anyone know of a non-religous book that deals with this subject?

I've been searching for a book that discusses/deals with the impact a father has on his daughter when he wants nothing to do with her.Everywhere I look, I find books that only deal with the loss of a father through death. I know I can't be the only woman out there who has a terrible father, so there must be something out there for us - a book, online support group, website...anything! The one book I did find that addressed the subject encouraged girls to "find the strength to solely rely on the…See More

Looking for advice, and...perhaps a bit of assurance that I am not insane?

My family has always been religious (Christian Protestant, to be specific.) I was raised by a single mother and have a younger brother, and we always had so much going on in our lives that we never went to church together: it was always only me and my little brother, or just me.On the outside I appeared to be a happy, 'God-fearing' young girl, but on the inside I secretly wished I had never heard of God or Jesus. That way I wouldn't have to study the bible or live in fear of hell (I was so, so…See More

Recovering from Religion

Unless you were raised by atheist parents, you probably had some recovering to do when you left religion. The purpose of RR is to provide a landing place for people when they jump from religion. With local support groups throughout the US, Canada, UK, and Australia, and real-time resources accessible to everyone, RR is where to turn when faith has lost its luster.See More

Hi Alice,  I often wonder what it would be like to live in a city which has a population greater than my entire continent of Australia.

I was brought up in friendly little towns so small of less than 1000 people where we knew everybody and in one town, related to everybody.

I wonder if being in such a large city would be sort of cold and unfriendly and what is the situation there for Atheism at the moment???

Greetings, Alice! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus last July. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.

Hi Alice, and welcome to this friendly meeting place where we recognise--like you as a freethinking atheist--that gods are phoney and religion is used to control people;
and how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and more.
