About Me:
I changed from faith to science. I am a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, a survivor of breast cancer thanks to the fine diagnostic work and treatment at Cancer Care Northwest, which included chemotherapy and radiation. Dreadful stuff, but a wake up to living each and every minute. Life is too short to dwell on the past. One can be good without god! My whole family proves it.

Capitalism can't work without a poverty class.

Posted on September 19, 2014 at 12:00pm 1 Comment

Capitalism can't work without a poverty class. In order to increase the numbers of people in the poverty class,

* withhold the kind of education that teaches critical thinking, stress obedience; 

* educate children to remain dependent on church and government as adults; 

* tax wages at a higher rate than investment income, otherwise known as unearned income; 

* spends tax dollars on expensive warring humans and material that creates wealth for the owners of…

Do you think we live in a democracy where we have opportunity, freedom, and equality? Well, take a look at what is happening all around us. If you are honest, take off your blinders, unwrap yourself from the patriotic flag and see what is really happening, you will understand that these words, beautiful as they are, just simply do not stand up to scrutiny. Those fine expressions in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America…

I am offended

Posted on September 16, 2014 at 10:35pm 31 Comments

I am offended 

There is a peculiar phenomenon going around that I want to address. 

I feel deeply rooted offense when I see a person insult another, or belittle them, or assault another physically, mentally and emotionally. 

I am offended by parents who deliberately do not educate their children claiming they prepare their children for 21st…

I see good things coming out of Atheist Nexus

Posted on September 15, 2014 at 2:26pm 13 Comments

Each one of you, Loren, Pat, Bertold, and Daniel, and others on this Atheist Nexus site are such decent men and women, full of experiences from life, and a healthy quality of skepticism. You see the cons of religious dogma and the terrible things people do in the name of their gods. We all know the good that religion has done, however, that does not mitigate the injury that is made possible through dogma. I feel distress when moderate religious remain silent in the face of atrocities done in…

Yes I've been on board it. It is the USS Constellation of 1854 which is a twin to Old Iron Sides. The pictures are of the inner harbor area of Baltimore. I took some new ones and am trying to organize them all. I eventually intend to post about 30 more of waterfront cafes, restaurants and festivals not to mention more marina pictures. The building behind the boat called Chesapeake is a National Aquarium.

Dear Joan please visit my site www.janbodh.webs.com to know what i have to say.

Dear Joan, I was a follower of Hinduism about 2 years ago, since my birth. I am 33 now. I graduated in science and later on studied management. As a child i had firm belief in God and his powers. In our Hindu culture people are very superstitious they teach young ones like that. I have been through some bad patch concerning my health but only modern medicine saved me. My father is a veterinarian and gave me freedom of thought since childhood, he had a close friend at job whom he admired a lot and is an atheist. But my father is not an atheist, he says he believes just because he copies my grandfather who was a firm follower of Hinduism.I feel gifted to be in a family where no one imposes religion on me. Since school days i used to say that the scientists and discovers were real Gods and my parents never ridiculed me.So i calculated myself to be an atheist.
As far as my statement is concerned i can't think of a day, actually afraid of a day, when i have reached the almighty and have known every thing, sitting besides him thinking that there is nothing left, this is the end. I felt scared of that, that if i meet almighty it will be that: i with him or i be him( when i unite with the almighty) what will i do then, what will i think of then....I know this is not possible so i believe in infinity which is the truth about universe; i.e. It's infinite and ever expanding. If we have an almighty it will be the end...the wall of universe, but universe has no wall

It's great inspiration to see a person leave religious beliefs and embracing science. Have a beautiful long life.

I  love hearing your positive words and wisdom on this site.

I have been busy moving - so I've been absent from the site a bit.

Things are getting calmer so I look forward to being more active on the site.

HUGS to you my friend.

Thank you very much. I just want to communicate with like minded people. It's tough when the people you are surrounded with just don't get the change. I hope I'm entitled to a certain amount of privacy. I wouldn't like the stuff I share to be openly discussed on platforms such as Facebook. Anyways, I wish you a good day and thanks again :)

Glad to hear that. I am so so right now. I've battled depression my whole life but I did not hang myself like Robin Williams did. I take my meds. Nice to meet you Joan.

Hi Joan! Welcome to the DNA Tested Nonbelievers group. Feel free to tell us anything to everything about any DNA testing you have undergone or plan to undergo. All that you need do is start a discussion in the group about it. Of course you don’t have to. Welcome again and I hope you enjoy the group.
