I'm relatively new to the atheist social networking community, and am interested in advise on how to build a personal community of nonbelievers.  I come from an evangelical/fundamentalist background…Continue

I am a relatively new non-theist, new enough to be unfamiliar with terminology, options, etc.  I am basking in the joy of freedom from religion having been raised in a fundamentalist family.  I am…Continue

New(ish) Happy Nontheist

I am new to this universe.  I released my previous identity and belief structure as a fundamentalist Christian, and am looking to join a community of skeptics.  I am not yet familiar with all of the terms, organizations, or the structure of this community.  I am eager to learn, and also long to give back by helping questioners through that phase into the place that I am.  I am not interested in becoming an "evangelist" per se, but I prefer the idea of becoming an apologist.  Much more to come!

Nye vs. Ham

Posted on February 9, 2014 at 4:34pm 1 Comment

Here in the Pacific Northwest we have been blanketed with snow for the past few days.  Because we do not have the infrastructure to deal with said snow, we all tuck in and stay home.  Thus, we had several days with my two girls (ages 12 and 15) to enjoy board games, creative projects, and you guessed it…viewing the Nye vs. Ham debate.  I would not have opted to sit through all two hours and forty five minutes if not for the fact that we were snowed in.  

Having been…

The Violent Atonement

Posted on August 31, 2013 at 12:02am 2 Comments

Without the shedding of blood is no remission...

I do not understand how there could have been a time in my life when that statement did not seem absurd to me.  Now that the fog has been lifted, I see the absolute ridiculousness of the concept of blood atonement for the forgiveness of the sin of being a human being.  I simply cannot understand how the concept of a god that required...even craved blood could in any way make…

Learning How to Think

Posted on August 24, 2013 at 11:31am 13 Comments

It has been about three weeks since I was inspired by some unknown force (that I do not call god) to involve myself in the freethought/new atheist movement.  It began when I returned from my vacation to Northern California.  My husband and I drove from Northwestern Oregon to San Francisco, and I realized that I noticed the natural beauty in a way that I never had before.  Somehow that inspired me to google "atheist" when I arrived home.  Since then, I can't get enough of The Thinking…

Flannel-graphs and Other Travesties

Posted on August 20, 2013 at 1:26pm 0 Comments

Being on my "all things atheist" kick, I have been feeling rather enraged about my own childhood indoctrination and being scared of hell.  I'm having a bit of cognitive dissonance because I can't bring myself to be angry at my parents, since I understand that they were also victims.  

I have been reading a number of blog entries and statements made by atheists, asserting that teaching children about hell is a form of child abuse.  I absolutely agree with this!  However, being…

I enjoy nexus a lot. I consider some of the folks here, genuine friends. Life would be a lot less enjoyable without them.

Hope you enjoy nexus as much as I do.
