Hi to Lindsay Shannon in the Navy, and in Oklahoma. Welcome to Atheist Nexus and the rational people of this world who, like you, recognise religion for the superstition and fraud that it is --- that God and gods are nothing but fictions inside people's heads.
originator of the busy discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 250 discussion topics.
i still celebrate religious holidays with my family ( i just dont recogize the religious part of it) ... i dont go to church with them.. not even for easter and christmas service. but everything else we would usually do for those holidays, we still do together.
Greetings, Lindsay! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. When you get free of your Navy online limitations, please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.

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…
No Jason Torpy it is you that should be banned for promoting atheism, a belief that has no foundation in reality and zero proof behind it. The letter was a mockery of your atheist beliefs. I request to the board here that they remove Jason for his unverifiable beliefs in atheism for which he has no proof other than his arrogance. The letter was a mockery of atheism. Atheism is stupid and it should be mocked and it…
