"I am kind of semi-out. I have told a few people that i am an atheiest, but i have not said anything to my family. I even hide my Dawkins books like a teenage hides his playboys. Sometime i tell people things like, "i was raised Lutheran, but i…"

"Ok, i totally prefer the name Martin, but that is not the point. A parent should have a right to name his or her child whatever stupid name they want. If the child objects he can change it when he grows up. Why not go after the hollywood stars…"

"I think much depends on your own age and whether you are financially independent of your father. If you are over 18 and have your own job maybe it's time to show your true colours."

"I'm 67 years old and in the same boat. Just realized that I'm an atheist about a year ago. As for the "echoed" words of "amen" around the dinner table, the word simply means "so be it." Todays gullible…"

Sorry, have not been on here in while, and this one will be a quick one.  I was recently visiting with my very religious dad. We had dinner and he, of course, said grace. Well he was anoyed that no one "echoed" when he said "amen." Made me think, dang, he is going to figure me out soon.  So far i have been trying to come off as just lazy or just mildly jaded when it comes to church, but i'm sure if he knew about the secret stash of Dawkins books hidden in my room, the poor old dude would croak.…See More

Easton Le commented on blue pashmina's blog post Ignorant Zealots
"I disagree when people suggest the Bible should be required reading in school. Firstly, it allows religious teachers an open opportunity to push their agenda. Secondly, I think it is a terribly written book that has little to be admired in it.…"

Michael Penn commented on blue pashmina's blog post Ignorant Zealots
"The Bible should be required reading at school, but NOT as a religious handbook. It should be read and reports done on what you read, discussed in every way as a book, but NO "God teaching" allowed. The Bible never stopped anyone from…"

Facebook, oh that terrible double- edged sword! On the one hand, full of photos of my cousins' kids, a spot where i can check in on my friends from other cities or even countries without a long distance phone call and of course the cat videos... I admit it, I love the cat videos! But there is a darker side... the constant religious posts!The one that a couple of my friends are circulating today is about the Bible not being allowed at school.  They are saying the Bible is encouraged in prison…See More

Not believing in an afterlife does not mean i am a "sad' person.

I work in healthcare in a long term care facility and I deal with death on a regular basis. About a year ago the opportunity arose for me to take a palliative care course through my work.  I enjoyed it for the most part. It dealt with topics such as end of life care, pain relief and addressing the spiritual needs of different individuals based on their religious beliefs.

There was one instance however that was decidedly unpleasant, and unfortunately really overshadowed the rest of my…

Religious music in secular settings

Posted on May 16, 2013 at 8:33am 5 Comments

This post is maybe a bit more thought out than my last one:

There have been a few occasions of late when i was in a business and the music selected by the staff was a bit abrasive. Now, me not liking the music playing over the speakers at a business is not an uncommon occurrence.  I live in rural Ontario and "country" seems to be the music of choice for most stores.  I am not a big country fan. Some places will go with pop or soft rock, which maybe aren't my faves either, but…
