Thanks to Hemant Mehta, our Friendly Atheist, for posting this story.
So apparently the good citizens of Asheville, North Carolina are a bit upset that they elected an atheist to the City Council - so now they want the seat back. Amazingly, they have a legal claim to do so as the North Carolina State Constitution has a proviso that stipulates in Article VI, Section 8 that the denial of the existence of Almighty God is reason enough to disqualify a person from holding elected…Continue

Right I am experiencing a very depressing time in my life. Once upon a time I would look to religion to try and make sense of my circumstances. But know I realize how patronizing and empty those interactions were and I realize I am the one who must overcome these feelings. I am in the midst of applying for disability via Social Security and the hoops I must jump through seem never ending, with no end in sight. I have been waiting months to get an appointment with a pain management doctor…Continue
There is an old Egyptian recipe for aged cheese that I enjoy making called mish. Today I made some and thought I would share with all of you how to make it as well.

8 Table spoons sour cream

Yesterday I was called by the nursing home where my mother has been cared for during the past 3 years. She has profound Alzheimer's disease. She has not spoken a meaningful word for 2 years, as far as I can tell. I live 2000 miles away. For many years, I tried to move my parents here, where I have plenty of room in my house. I could have given close, attentive care. They didn't want to move. My father died last year.
My mother's name is Maxine. She was born in a…Continue
I always just assumed atheists leaned to the left when it came to politics, but that is just a guess. Since I just found this group I thought I’d ask.
I’m not a far left winger; I’m closer to a progressive, but my views don’t always fall strait down party lines (I’m pro death penalty and I’m sure have some other righty views). I feel like I’m standing still and the middle keeps moving farther and farther to the right.
Which way do you lean?
