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.

I am offended

Posted on September 16, 2014 at 10:35pm 5 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…


Religion is a creator of hate

Posted on September 15, 2014 at 11:01am 6 Comments

History repeats itself, over and over and over again. This is why I think there is no such thing as a god, jesus, salvation, redemption, or any of the other claims people who act as if they know make. If there were a god, there would be a universal god, one who empowered all people around the Earth to flourish, they would know how to solve problems and resolve conflict. No, the gods that exist in the minds of Homo sapiens are constructs created in the mind of humans to explain things they do…


Isn’t it time to save the the U.S.A. from the South?

Posted on September 12, 2014 at 9:29pm 11 Comments

The religious South persists in maintaining the U.S.A. in some kind of 1860s time warp. The 1860s was an extremely turbulent decade. Many economic, cultural, social, and political disturbances occurred in Europe and U.S.A. Unrest occurred with people advocating for fundamental changes in power. This was a time…

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.
