Javier Garcia replied to Kristine R.'s discussion Any atheists that celebrate Christmas?
"I like flashing lights and sparkly things on trees. So does my cat. In fact my Christmas tree is still up. Seriously, I have no issues. I still go thorough some rituals because it's pleasant. I like jack o' lanterns on Halloween and a…"

Javier Garcia replied to jimmy converse's discussion How did you become atheist?
"I had been leaning towards it for years; stopped going to church (Catholic) over a decade ago; prayed, but finally had some jarring revelations about mental and physical health - in that I had been relying on the laziness of prayer and faith to…"

Javier Garcia replied to Tabi's discussion Why so many Kids think its fun to attend Church in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Why can't a non-theist organization not get tax exempt status? The qualifications for 501(c)3 status include "literary" and "scientific" purposes..."

ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN

We debate origins of the Universe, life, Earth, humans, religion, atheism, using common sense, evolution, cosmology, geology, archaeology, and other sciences, to repel biblical creationism and other religious beliefs.

Javier Garcia replied to Anna's discussion Do men exist that do not want and do not have children? in the group Atheist Singles
"Late reply, but: I do not have children out of choice. I do not want to father children either. I did have an ex off and on these 14 years who had children - not in her custody full time due to mental and substance abuse issues; when they were…"

Javier Garcia replied to Zulu's discussion Converting Delusional People into Critical Thinkers?
"The case to be made with most delusional people is to counter either their strict upbringing in "faith", or traumas that enforced the same. You are swimming against the tide, in that religion hooks in to very basic needs, that they do not…"

Javier Garcia replied to Javier Garcia's discussion Fairy tales and imaginary friends
"Allen, Yes. I expect the approach to such a system would have to be incremental, integrated in what we have now, but steering towards reality. But where to start? I think it is incumbent on us - even if we do not succeed in our lifetime. After all,…"

Allen D. Berrios replied to Javier Garcia's discussion Fairy tales and imaginary friends
"No your not alone, I would guess a lot of people have gone through similar situations. I also agree with you wholeheartedly that we need a system, that is based on logic and facts, not superstition to guide us. Welcome to Atheist Nexus, hope you…"

Javier Garcia replied to Javier Garcia's discussion Fairy tales and imaginary friends
"Yes, Objection, prayer has all the power of placebo or random chance. A certain (small) amount of cancer patients in spontaneous remission. Emotional issues driven away by the power of prayer - until the inevitable real world trigger brings them…"

Objection replied to Javier Garcia's discussion Fairy tales and imaginary friends

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.
