Autism, Asperger's and Atheism

It's a language barrier and social barrier that's rough enough to work through without the added ick of religious platitudes. Whether you have it, know someone who does, or are just interested in knowing more, all are welcome!

Conversation with a Theist: God vs Zeus

Posted on May 31, 2010 at 9:00pm 7 Comments

Just now, sitting in a grocery store deli, woman reads my Magellan t-shirt ("The Church says the Earth is flat but I know it is round for I have seen the shadow on the moon, and I have more faith in a shadow than in the Church"). The woman strikes me as submissive, mousey, dependent.



Woman: "Well, I have faith in god."



Me: "And some…

Teabagger threatens to kidnap me. Or maybe word-salad me to death?

Posted on May 19, 2010 at 7:36pm 3 Comments

As most are aware, Arizona recently passed a demand-to-see-your-papers law: Anyone who 'looks' like they could be an illegal immigrant can be stopped on that suspicion alone and must provide proof of citizenship or legal residency. If you don't have such proof on you, even if you are a legal resident, you can be jailed up to 6 months just for not having the proper paperwork on your person.


One would think that the freedom-loving, privacy-loving, constitution-is-sacred,…

Teabagging 2M4M in Gaylord.

Posted on February 7, 2010 at 1:30am 2 Comments





First you have the whole concept of modern-day Tea Parties, whose only vague resemblance to the original is when someone gets the period costume right. If you know nothing else about the Boston Tea Party, every American from age 7 onwards can chant the phrase: "Taxation without representation."


Today's Tea Partiers A) Are protesting the whole concept of paying taxes period. Because taking from the community without contributing back is…

Earthquake politics: Where is the Christian/Republican outrage?

Posted on January 15, 2010 at 10:22pm 4 Comments

Posting this to my Facebook Page, where I actually do have a Conservative Christian friend or three:





"If moderate Muslims are so against what the extremists are doing, feel the extremists don't represent 'real Islam,' then where is their outrage? Why don't we hear from them? Why aren't they marching in the streets to protest the extremists and proclaim, 'They do not speak for us?'"



To which I ask: Where is the moderate… Continue

Hey! New use for Atheism! Drive away the Jesus-bums!

Posted on December 22, 2009 at 8:15pm 7 Comments

Ok, so "bum" is a rather un-PC term.



Especially since I myself am currently quasi-homeless. Although, living out of a tiny RV where ever I'm parked today, without electricity, I somehow still manage to keep reasonably clean (I've got hobo-bath down to a science) and not drunk 24/7.



Unlike the guy who has spent the last several minutes trying to sit next to me and bum money off of me. And I think pick me up.



My initial response to him? "Sorry man. I'm homeless… Continue

Overhaul of our understanding of why autism potentially occurs

This article shows a novel approach to autism which might be of interest to your Autism, Asperger's and Atheism group.

Drug Treatment Corrects Autism Symptoms in Mouse Model

...suramin ... corrected autism-like symptoms in the animal model, even if the treatment was started well after the onset of symptoms.

... we are encouraged enough to test this approach in a small clinical trial of children with autism spectrum disorder in the coming year.

Disorder of Neuronal Circuits in Autism Is Reversible, New Study Suggests

At 2:28pm on September 24, 2011, Rachael Stephen said…

Hey, i know this is a bit forward since you don't know me, but I commented on your Pagan-atheist discussion and I just wondered if you'd be willing to share any of the other pagan-related practises you get up to as a fellow hybrid.

 

(When I first got into scientific-paganism I truly thought I was the only one, even though i scoured the web, and I kind of ran into a dead end because of it). I know it's personal to everybody, but your "force field to protect from my sister's idiocy" really sparked my interest again and inspired me to start creating "spells" for myself.

 

So, no pressure, but I just wondered if you'd be willing to mention any other things you came up with.

Cheers,

Rachael. ^_^

Hi, Jo! I like the cats & motorcycles pictures. :D I also like your look. :) For someone living out of an RV you sure are media connected.

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends.
