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 0 Comments

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 

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…

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.

It's me again!  And yeah, I been at it again, mostly because Seth Andrews has been at it again ... and I thought you'd like to know!

Hey, Joan.

Don't know if you subscribe to, but I thought today's entry would be of particular interest to you.

To answer your query about my father--yes, he lives alone in a duplex adjacent (part of) to a retirement community. He does quite well. Lost his wife ( my mother) 13 yrs ago.

Silly me - I have to ask: have you seen this?

HEY, Joan!

I don't know whether you saw my piece about an article in our local newspaper or my participation in it, but I wanted to be sure you were aware of it.  Yeah, I'm showing off a bit [GRIN!], but I think it's pretty neat, too, as well as something you'd be interested in.
