I mean really on paper it just sounds so insane, but when you grow up hearing this stuff it still doesn't sit well with you. It left me anger because Hollywood being Hollywood plays on our fears, but more importantly these fears are here because we are allowed to program them into children. From the time we are young we are taught to fear…See More

Blogging

Do any of you do this? I haven't noticed a whole lot of Atheist homeschool bloggers. I enjoy it and the few secular homeschool blogs I do read offer either great ideas *that don't mention religion* and/or encouragement.http://dysfunctionalhomeschooler.blogspot.com/See More

"They just come back with Pascal's reasoning: if atheists are right, they've lost nothing. Of course, they have lost something. They're just blind to what they've lost."

Prog Rock Girl replied to Rayven's discussion They may be right...
"Yeah, I started saying I was an atheist at 18, I had an understanding of some of the reasoning but basically I was mad at the world. Soon after I started my wiccan experiment--even though it was with a "prove it!" attitude I stayed in that…"

I really wish I didn't have to interact with certain members of the human race. The insanity they allow themselves to believe just shocks me.

Greetings, Rayven! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> I hope you haven't been impacted by the reactor crisis/tsunami. Sometimes AN can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, . :D You might feel more at home. We'd be interested in hearing what's it's like in Japan, for you.

Welcome to Socialist Atheists. Glad to hear that you live in an atheist paradise. Seen from afar Japan has an image of being a capitalist paradise. Are things changing?
