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 surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Dreadful stuff, but a wake up to living each and every minute. Life is to remember the past, live in the present and remember a preferred future. One can be good without god! My family demonstrates it

China’s crop of outrageous new hotel designs

Posted on December 14, 2014 at 6:01pm 1 Comment

I was in Chin in the 1980s. I saw spotlessly clean streets with women out early each morning sweeping. I saw butchers slaughtering animals in open-air markets, blood streaming into the streets. There were no flies. I saw small rooms open to the street where people constructed electric irons for the world trade, even U.S. trademarks. I talked to people taking care of babies while their parents worked in factories. Mothers were allowed to take time to nurse their babies and it was not time…

Fractal History

Posted on December 6, 2014 at 10:05pm 5 Comments

Do you ever wonder, as I wondered, why a broccoli or cauliflower looks as it does? Why do animals have two legs or four legs, two eyes, or two nostrils? Why are rivers formed into dendritic patterns? Why do some crystals have dendrite patterns in them? What causes a snowflake to form into patterns? Why is every fingerprint different from every other one?

One day I heard a lecture and the speaker used a word I did not recognize. I discussed the word with the speaker afterwards and she…

Capstone video: Rich ideas of substance: Chris Martenson, "Crash Course", economics.

Posted on December 5, 2014 at 1:41pm 0 Comments

Over the years, I ran across people and ideas that have important messages that we need to know about and understand. These are individuals and concept who look at the reality of our current situation and have ideas for solving problems and conflicts. The subjects range from economics, education, health care, permaculture, politics, religion, spirituality, and beyond. 

The first one I call attention to is Chris Martenson and his "Crash Course" in which he defines the state of the…

Joan, I'm so looking forward to finding a publisher for THE LOST WORLD. It is written in diary format, chapter by chapter reporting the discoveries of the day and giving away my thinking and consequent excitements. The other books are being prepared more like standard textbooks--as they need to be. All the best to you, Terry. 

At 10:42am on December 17, 2014, Dr. Terence Meaden said…

Dear Joan, Thank you. In your message you suggest that Atheist Nexus could be a suitable place to mention the discoveries that I have been reporting on Facebook? Let's see. Here's some background information: I am an archaeologist and simultaneously a strong atheist.  Because of this I have been able to observe, dissect, and analyse the archaeological record deeply and dispassionately which no Christian archeologist has ever been able to do, most of them being religiously biassed. That explains why I have discovered so much about the lost religion of our Neolithic ancestors---my eyes wide open, brain alert, all senses active as I move about the places where the first farmers lived and worshipped. The people were illiterate but they made use of symbols and images---and I have been exploring their world, unlocking secrets . . . and writing papers and books and lecturing. My problem is that I have discovered so much, and started several books---- about 6 on archaeology and 4 on atheism (the latter 4 are finished), and what with the prostate cancer my days seem to be numbered to probably 5 years left. This is why I do little on Atheist Nexus . . . there's so much to do. It will be a tragedy if I don't get all my knowledge published first. So I work and work, maybe 60 hours a week as I always have done . . . and I love it. Ever optimistic though. So as I reflect while I write this, I conclude that I don't want to open up something else, another outlet, that will take time away from the main job. I know you understand that. Affectionately, Terry

Learning, for me, is  constant throughout life.  I welcome the opportunity to be taught.

You're in good historic company as a radical.  I was following the Talpoit Tomb, boy did the Jews shit at the thought of pissing off the witch burners!  It blows their whole fairy tale out of the water.  I can't understand how people can look around the fact, "Jesus...the organization that bears his name is history's greatest contradiction to his doctrines

LemPoot!"

Hey, Joan!

Here's a little something in re: the last election which I suspect you should see.

Greetings-  You asked if you could cite "my piece on morality" on Twitter and Facebook; certainly you may. Please note that I have a number of such pieces, admittedly putting across the same idea to different audiences at different lengths. The longest piece is the first one I posted, so it is at the bottom of the last page of my blog. Pieces related to ethics are on all three pages. See http://www.atheistnexus.org/profiles/blog/list?user=2wluhkj14fnrb

Thank you Joan! A lot of what you said are some of the things I've come across in my search of educating myself so when I do find myself in a conversation I will have the proper tools to back up what I'm saying and how I feel. I know that with time and continuing to learn more I will be more confidant and content in my stance. Thanks for your words I really appreciate it.

Thanks Joan.  Your comment about our insults helping him out was a very helpful reminder.
