"I think so much of religion has been washed out of the way many celebrate Easter in America, that there's real no need to worry about those uncomfortable topics.  Decorating eggs, bunnies, even the word Easter: they're all…"

"I talked to my girl about it before she went to school, and gave the same 3 options as were mentioned - saying it as the principal does, leaving out the god part, or not saying it at all. We also have heathen friends who say "under gods"…"

Can "Freethought" be an adjective

I created this group called "Freethought Families of Chicago" and someone mentioned that the name is not grammatically correct.  It should read, they say, as "Freethinking Families of Chicago."  When I created the title, I had not really thought of it, the name just seemed to roll off the tongue well. In my defense, I would say that "freethought" represents a philosophical worldview where as "freethinking" represents activity within that worldview.  So to call it "Freethought Families of…See More

"I my self have written notes to teachers telling them that my daughter will only say up to the god part, skip the god part and say the rest, the pledge was written by a preist, so it should be taken out of public schools"

Good Username for Group's Twitter Account?

Hi to Christian J Brooks in Chicago, and welcome to Atheist Nexus. We are pleased to welcome you here among the sensible, rational people of this world who, like you, recognise religion for the superstition and fraud that it is --- and that God and gods are nothing but fictions inside people's heads.

Terry Meaden
originator of the busy discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 250 discussion topics.

We invite you to come and see, and to make good new friends.
