"So, I take it you'd be ok with all women choosing not to have children, and focussing on their careers. If not, should neither parent get concessions in order to raise the next generation? What would you like to…"
"Such an interesting discussion! Still, Vince, don't you think that Xians/Muslims/whatever think that they have done all the work in their 'holey' books? Our assertions that they have to define god are all very well, but…"
"Well, if you want to add things to 'there is no god', that's a whole different argument. There is no god in my life/mind/heart/left ear is not the same as 'there is no god'. And, perhaps I should take a…"
"I haven't read all the posts yet, so sorry if I'm reapeating what someone else said. My view is that since you can't prove a negative, we are unable to prove that god doesn't exist. That said, I think it highly…"
"Oh for pete's sake Bruce. That 8 % may simply be a statistical blip or anomaly. How big a portion of working women does this 8% cover i.e. what percentage of women fall into this group? What fields of work does it…"

"I am profoundly sad to say that this exact scenario was just re-enacted in Manitoba (Canada). The judge is being roundly condemned. I hope he loses his job, and is charged and/or sued. What a pitiful excuse for a human being. …"
I think you are a brave person. I would encourage you to teach your children critical thinking skills. This way they will question what they are told in the mosque. Also, they can see your good example - morality does…"
"Greetings from Saskatoon, SK., Canada!
I really appreciate your integrity. Examples of those who lack it are far too common.
Perhaps if you find a new community, you will feel less alone, although I admit that 10 years after leaving my church…"
"Sheez this atheism stuff is not for the faint of heart.
I haven't 'come out' to my family yet. I grew up Lutheran, but then became Southern Baptist. The weird thing is that, for my fundy-est sister, that wasn't xian enough.
"Angie, you have a wonderful, understanding heart. Generosity is a good thing. I am not surprised that a person with her background 'slid back' into the familiar. Battered women go back to their abusers too. It doesn't mean we should…"

Hi and welcome to this great meeting place
where religion is recognised for the superstition and people-control fraud that it is and for its inexcusable 2000 years of oppressing women
--- and that God and gods are merely fictions inside human heads.
