"To be fair, I think this form of child killing is actually used because it leaves very little external evidence. Kids are growing and healing quickly, and needles don't make much of an external wound to begin with."
"Good point about the next two...
I really enjoyed the books and the movie to a lesser extent. I hope they do decide to make them; it's better than a lot of other stuff out there... and would probably even come to Japan!!"
"Police said Roberto Carlos Magalhaes had confessed to sticking the sewing needles into the two-year-old boy, and had been arrested.
Mr Magalhaes said his mistress had told him ritually to kill the child to take revenge on his wife.
"That's good, thanks, Felix. :o)
I had a crazy person in my Advanced French class last week asking me about how exactly we were supposed to host the Olympics in Rio when all we have is crime over there. I had to explain to her that Rio hosted…"
"Please don't think Brazil is a primitive place filled with primitive people because of this story. There's a nice Brazliain atheist community and some of us are right here on atheist nexus, we even have a group. This is a bizzare occurence…"
Greetings, Sara sensei! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately excepting for one post. <sigh> Sometimes it 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, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
Sarada, I’m not the official welcome wagon, but I do spend a lot of time on A|N, so I’ll take the liberty to welcome you and tell you a little about the site.
There are three ways to join in the conversations here. You can use the CHAT ROOM, or you can post a discussion in either the FORUM or in one of the GROUPS. The FORUM has different categories for posting discussions, and it is open to everyone here. To post a discussion or comment in a GROUP, you must first join that group.
There are over 500 groups so far, so just about any area of interest you can have will be represented. There are regional groups, groups for ex-Christians or ex-Muslims, and groups for pot smokers, bikers, singles, gamers, the LGBT community, parents, and pet lovers. Groups of common interest include: music, science, writing, politics, Dawkins, philosophy, morality, ethics, cinema, feminism, human rights, memetics, sexuality, history, race & culture, gardening, vegetarianism, books, propaganda, Cynicism, Objectivism, news, Doctor Who, free speech, the NFL, Carl Sagan, psychology, science fiction, horror films, Star Trek, and much more.
You are welcome to start your own group, but I might suggest that you first check to make sure that no such group for that particular interest already exists (for example, we already have four LGBT groups).
When commenting in a group, be sure to select FOLLOW at the bottom of the screen so that you’ll be informed of follow up comments to either the discussion, or to your comments. Also, the unspoken preference on A|N for responding to the comments of another member tend to be that you copy the text to which you are referring, paste it in your comment, italicize it, and then write your response below that. That way everyone knows to whom or what you are referring. You should also activate all links or URLs you post.
The best way to see what’s going on elsewhere on the site is to monitor the LATEST ACTIVITY feed on the right side of the screen. You’ll see new members announced and the conversations that are attracting the most attention.
Again, welcome aboard. I hope you enjoy it here, as I do.
P.S. There is a Atheists who live in Japan group, or something like that.
