Meeting Cheryl







I was married at 22 years of age, it was 1980 and I thought I loved her.



She was a Baptist girl who grew up in a family where her dad worked 3 jobs to make ends meet. He was a captain in the police department by day, and worked several night jobs.







When I pulled into the driveway to pick Pat up for our first date in my shiny 1976 Grand Prix, he was next to the driveway in overalls chopping wood with an axe. He was a large… Continue

Volkswagen’s, Reefer and Subjective Thought

I didn’t have a lot of friends when I was in High School, but the ones I had were good. I was, for all practical purposes, an only child. My brother was 12 years older than I was, and he died when I was only 10 years old.



I have always felt that being an only child for so long gave me an advantage, in that I didn’t have to deal with anyone my own age unless I wanted to. If I got tired of one of my friends company I just went home and entertained myself. The friends I had were friends… Continue

Something bothers me about this place

Why can't AN simply send whatever the comment is to my email. Why must I log in to see it. I'm afraid that is going to be a deal breaker for me here. I haven't the time to be paying this much attention to AN's needs for attention.

Almost Busted

We had just scored two four finger ounces of grass. Not the good stuff, but when you have a bong, it’ll do.



We had an unopened six-pack on the floor of the back seat, and a ball of fragrant opium.



We set them in the console between the seats of my newly rebuilt GTO and went out looking for a party. Woody was riding shotgun, he was 17 and looked like a hell’s…

Are cats for true Christians?

Is it appropriate for a Christian to own a cat, in light of their past pagan religious affiliation and the medical information that is now coming to light? -J.R., U.S.A.



It would be misleading to answer this question with either a simple 'Yes' or a 'No.' The Scriptural answer of necessity must be a 'qualified' one, and it is easy to see why. Many conscientious ones among Jehovah's people today have wondered if Christians should own cats in view of… Continue

In the Beginning

Posted on August 4, 2008 at 12:00pm 3 Comments

If we take a little imaginary trip back in time to the era when Homo sapiens first started to evolve into modern humans, we might see the beginnings of some concepts that are still in place today.

For instance, it is quite likely that humans invented god(s) as explanations for unexplained events in nature. Slowly as knowledge grew, those god(s) were replaced with knowledge, but not until they were firmly embedded as memes.

Most holy writ has some story about origins, and some of those… Continue

Welcome to Atheist Nexus!

It's so good to see this place gaining new interactive members daily. The folks I've found so far are extremely intelligent and fun. It's good to have a new blogging home, even though I have yet to do any serious blogging. We should all take the next few weeks to get to know some of the new members, and make this place what we have all been wanting ever sinse blogging first started.

Well apparently a portion of our core atheist meetup group is the end result of a certain someone's dating habits.

Interesting. Andrea seems to think skeptics and strippers are one and the same as well. :D

WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH KANSAS? NOTHING THAT A FEW WELL ORGANIZED AND CONNECTED ATHEISTS CAN'T FIX. FROM ENDING THE PRACTICE OF CHURCHES BEING POLLING PLACES, TO KEEPING IDIOTS FROM POLLUTING OUR SCIENCE STANDARDS..
