"I was introduced to His Dark Materials when I downloaded a massive quantity of eBooks while living in China. Unfortunately, I've not seen any of the other books in the series available for download. (Not that I've looked hard. I'm…"
"I usually hit up various websites (usually on about.com) and find some stuff we can make with science together. My mom doesn't mind that I'm teaching the kids math and chemistry to make rock candy, peanut brittle and other fun stuff.
"Hello and welcome!
While everyone else thought big, my first thought was small. I would have religion lose its grip on my family. A couple years ago my mom was having a bad time with life, and in her state of weakness got really deep in with some…"
"My mother has recently gotten into being a born again Christian, so she prays about everything. When she tells me she is praying for me, I smile warmly and say, "Thank you for your love, support and thoughts. It means a lot." She knows…"
"It's really sort of odd that I even know of Pharyngula. My little brother kept sending me links to that blog, but it took me a good 6 months to go to it without prodding. I'm just not much for any sort of Internet browsing, so I'm…"
"Funny you should bring up saving P.Z.'s pride. I found Atheist Nexus through Pharyngula, but once I got here I was overwhelmed with friendly people and choices of various groups. I've only been here for two days and already feel welcome to…"
I must ask, do you always think in such circular ways? I love your introduction. I could never get myself to be so verbose, so it amazes me with it's depth yet how it barely breaks the surface of an introduction.
You know, I never considered it in terms of being 'circular,' but I guess it is. I just recently rewrote that, and only posted it a few weeks ago. My previous intro was a bit more mundane and detailed. I think I changed it because I have been wanting to look more closely at essence and not detail. I appreciate your input.

"Did you notice her expression when she reported being an atheist? I saw pride, self-respect, disdain and even sarcasm. I know, you will say I am reading into her countenance what I want to see. Did you notice how her interviewer backed…"
Actually, the rednecks are here and everywhere. Let me say, I'm not a big fan of these people. That's putting it mildly. Need I describe them? You know who I mean.This seems to be the time of year when they come out of the woodwork. Here in Indiana, as the weather gets nice, the motorcyclists are out in full force. I hate the noise cycles make. Then there's the Indianapolis 500 fans, the majority of which are rednecks. Interview them or a typical Pacer fan (big news as they face the Miami…See More
"Happy Holidays is a good enough saying for anyone at Christmas time. I support the phrase "happy holidays" rather than the bullshit most Americans were taught. Let's go back in time to look at meanings here. "Holidays"…"
