well.. i've reached out on one of those internet help sites. did state i was an atheist. given the layout of the site could've been missed or maybe just ignored. getting some 'bless you' & 'praying for you' etc etc. guess i shouldn't be too surprised & really i'm not.
just really need to find a secular help site online or offline.

This interview is copied from Smashwords.com, one of the book retailers where my short, free e-book is published: The Reason Revolution: Atheism, Secular Humanism, and the Collapse of Religion. More info: dandana.us/atheism
There are many popular books about atheism. Why did you write another?
I applaud Richard…Continue
I'm not trying to be philosophical here.
Recently I’d been lurking in a string linked by AlterNet News on that bastion of objectivity WND faith, on which some character named Bob Unruh ran a most entertaining article titled "Scientists: Atheists May Not Exist."
Needless to say the ensuing string of comments was bursting at the seams with enthusiasm over this proposition.
Here's one of the first posts that caught my eye:
"No such thing as evolution or atheists,…Continue
well hello 'my page', long time no see. heh. wonder what is going on w/ any think atheist type folks in TX. if there are any. if so...stop by & say howdy.
Imagine that there passed an international law that illegalized the ownership of private cars, and enforce people to use only public transport.
of course this is good for our environment and to reduce pollution and reduce consume of oil energy.
But this will be very strange law, many people will complain and motor industry will protest this law.
But may be in the future there will be such a law that prohibit using private cars, maybe because people became more aware of…Continue
Borogora village in District Purulia of West Bengal. Last week, a 9 year old girl Sumitra Hansda was mentally tortured after being accused as witch by the villagers. Sabujmoni, mother of Sumitra left the village and took a safe shelter. She told us villagers are demanding 1 lakh rupee as a fine. She also told us,…Continue
Several people have questioned the dominance of mechanistic thought in the sciences, and I must admit that my understanding of the scientific community comes from reading historical accounts and from conversations with scientific colleagues who began their careers half a century or more ago now -- and from reading works by scientists whose belief systems also go back a number of decades.
The gist of the conversations I recall was that people without an acknowledged commitment…Continue

I just read a fascinating article in the Washington Post, that our scientists now believe that we are getting very close to finding Earth's twin in the Universe......This planet is about as far away from its sun as we are to ours...This planet seems to show a presence of liquid on its surface....Scientists conclude that its atmosphere is conducive to life.....A new telescope is set to begin operation by 2016 called the Wells telescope, and it will be much…Continue
Have you ever asked yourself why we do things? Why do we do things that irritate others? What is it we do or say that make other laugh. Have you ever wondered why the most embarrassing things always happen when you think no one is around? Why? The following are just a few things that make us wonder what people are thinking.…Continue
 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the…
As of this post, it is afternoon in the Vatican, so I'm going to guess that Cardinal Law is playing checkers with the Pope.
The idea of satan is extremely dangerous let’s take one example
If you live in desert, heaven will be green , water , rivers, fruits , bird meat, honey and wine, -And because of masculine society -of course there will be virgin brides (how about women who goes heaven) and beds – yes beds!!!.
“In the Gardens of Pleasure,” “There will circulate among them young boys made eternal With vessels, pitchers and a cup [of wine] from a flowing spring No headache will they have therefrom,…Continue
There, I’ve said it. Outside of a conversation on breast feeding, nipples seem to be off limits for television. Recently, a television show featuring reconstructive surgery featured breast augmentation among other procedures aired on The Learning Channel. Breasts of all shapes, sizes and colors filled the screen, but…Continue
The usual way of creating a myth is very straightforward: You simply take an entity as it has come to be defined in ordinary experience and grandly alter some of its basic attributes to remove its limitations.
In Christianity, for example, the god myth was created by…Continue
The monotheistic religions cannot be sustained without the satan, and that’s because in their development towards monotheistic they faced a big problem.
To understand this problem lets go back to the beginning when there was many gods and goddesses and each have specialized power.
One come and say these are many gods lets reduce them to just two gods one for good and other for evil.
so after that , when it was time for monotheistic, the writer faced this problem, how to…Continue
In the last years of the eighteenth century, Thomas Young began to think about the properties of light, and in 1801, he presented a paper to the Royal Society on what has come to be known as Young's Double-Slit Experiment.
What he discovered was that light from…Continue
How 'out' are YOU?
As for me, I'm telling my parents I am a humanist. It's a gentle way I think to advance some understanding, and advance it in a positive way. Who can be assailed for being pro-human??
As for social media, I'm pretty 'out' on twitter (@andyhoke). I'm not 'out' on Facebook. I'm kind of 'out' on YouTube. I'm anything but 'out' on LinkedIn.
Lastly to the anonymous and nom de plume... I completely appreciate and welcome all of the considerate and…Continue
As you are well aware, I express my thoughts and feelings as honestly as I can, and it gets me into more problems than need to occur. In my 78 years of living, I gained nothing by remaining silent in face of what confronts me. I paid a terrible price for remaining silent when I should have screamed at the top of my lungs, and sadly, my kids paid the price for my cowardice.
I don’t mean to imply that remaining silent is cowardice in all…Continue
