Reasons atheism can be healthy, thanks to Dustin Roy's discussion

Atheism does not state that there is no god/s; it states one does not have verifiable, reliable, replicable evidence that there is/are god/s. There is no litany or dogma or scripture that one must…Continue

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.

Learned optimism is the concept that one can learn a talent for joy, like any other, optimism can be cultivated and is done by consciously challenging any negative self talk. Optimists live their lives with higher achievements and have better overall health with reservation.

Older people however, who have low expectations for a satisfying future, may be more likely to live longer, healthier lives than those who see…

The Poor Farm

Posted on April 10, 2014 at 4:21pm 19 Comments

Does anyone here remember the "Poor Farm"? It was a place where old people, too old to work their farms and with no one able to care for them, were sent to the Poor Farm. My grandparents took me there when I was a very small child when they visited family members, took them food, and clothing and treats. I can't remember any of the faces except my grandparents'. I remember grandma crying, and granddad trying to comfort her. Neither one drove and depended on others to take them to The Poor…

Questions for Theists

Posted on April 9, 2014 at 12:00am 12 Comments

Questions for theists 

Do you really believe there is a supernatural energy who made heaven and Earth? 

or a supernatural energy impregnated a woman? 

or a virgin gave birth to a son? 

or a man who had supernatural power lived on the Earth? …

I am interested in freedom from religion.

Posted on April 8, 2014 at 9:44pm 5 Comments

I am not interested in confronting the man or woman who goes to church, who prays before meals in their own homes, who asks for something from a supernatural power privately, or the parent who takes good care of his or her children without using corporal punishment. 

I am interested in confronting the man or woman who attempts to get his or her religious values incorporated as part of government and laws of the…

thanks, but I don't want to exchange private messages.  You seem like a nice person and I feel kindly towards you but I don't want to get into a private discussion.

Hi Joan,

My background is in math - bachelor's in math from Caltech, although I've learned a lot since then :)

Well ... I'm back from Columbus and The Unbelievers.  Had a GREAT time and have logged some impressions here.

Joan, it was my pleasure to let you know about the video.  If atheism, and indeed, if this country has a future, it is in the person of Zack Kopplin and young people like him.

Hi, Joan!

Here is a link to the video I referred to: the interview of Zack Kopplin by Bill Moyers.  This kid is beyond sharp!

Please enjoy

You asked me if my kids had questions about my atheism. In a word, no. I have "bumper stickers" on my back door and "atheisms" on my fridge for all to read. I don't bring the subject up. My life and actions speak for themselves. My 4 yr old grandson has dropped the "god" word in my presence. That's thanks to his grandmother, my ex, the religious kook. Nothing I can do about it--at least not yet.

Hello Wonderful Joan.

Here is a friendship hug for you.

So glad you are on the site and spreading your wisdom.

Love, Steph

I honestly don't where you find the time to comment on so many things! But thanks for your response to my post, "I Fired God". My four children have had to deal with divorced parents--one, an atheist, the other, ultra religious. It's a subject that never comes up.

Thanks a lot for the warm welcome Joan!

Interesting (about Sagen). Another "hero" shot down. Jesus was my hero when I was a child. He went by the wayside long ago. Who's next?
