Hi John Congratulations on joining us. Welcome to this world of rationality and peace, where pure common sense can be quite enough to lead to the open freethinking wisdom common to non-believers, critical thinkers and knowledge enthusiasts like you and us. We invite you to join the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Gods, Atheism, Evolution, Darwin..." with 730 discussion topics and 3700 members. http://www.atheistnexus.org/group/originsuniverselifehumankindanddarwin
And, hero though I may somehow be to him, I declare that John Carver is my hero, especially when it comes to the awesomely important complex of matters related to board governance. He has taught me more, with his books and incredible seminars, about what a board of directors should do--and maybe more important, what it should not do--than a host of other "authorities" could begin to do. Anyone who cares about the governance of organizations (and that ought to include pretty much everyone) should learn about the Carter Governance Model. His modeling and theorizing is not just interesting, it is crucial to practical and effective functioning.
with high regards indeed for John Carver,
Ed B. (author, with Michael Buckner, of In Freedom We Trust [Prometheus Books, 2012])

I posted the bulk of this on another thread, but wanted to add some context separately.
I finally confronted my faith and embraced the fact of my atheism late last August, 2012. Days after I revealed my "epiphany" to a few friends who knew me from another message board, my sister died from Lou Gehrig's Disease (which pissed her off because she hated catching a disease from someone she never f---ed).
THAT was my sister, understand? She was a beautiful, life-loving, potty-mouthed…
OK. I am venting. My mother died two weeks ago. She was a “god fearing christian.” Before her death she refused all medical treatment. She wanted to be left alone. She even refused to speak with my brother who is a methodist minister. He is a pip, let me tell you! I suspect she did not believe, but a woman born in her time could not and did not state her actual beliefs. This is the opening salvo to all christians; FUCK YOU! I had so many people come and tell…
This probably should not have shocked me as much as it did (especially since I am in Texas). I actually thought my coworkers were playing a joke on me because they know I am an atheist. Sadly, this was no joke. This actually happened.
I work in a psychiatric hospital. The doctors who admit patients are general MDs. (Psychiatrists see patients after admission) Yesterday evening we received several calls from irate parents. A new doctor who was doing admissions yesterday actually…
