The Poor Farm

Does anyone here remember the "Poor Farm"? It was a place where old people, too old to work their farms and with no one able to care for them, were sent to the Poor Farm. My grandparents took me there when I was a very small child when they visited family members, took them food, and clothing and treats. I can't remember any of the faces except my grandparents'. I remember grandma crying, and granddad trying to comfort her. Neither one drove and depended on others to take them to The Poor…

Religions: My New Definition: Hijackers Of Childhood/Atheistic Wonderment Of Everything For Dubious Agendas.

During our early childhood years as young Atheists (Implicit Atheism, no knowledge nor care about Gods) most of us had an overwhelming wonderment for absolutely everything, I spent my childhood examining everything I could find and wondered how it all worked and was related to myself, if given a present involving technology, within two days it would be in pieces as I investigated what made it move or make noises, blow air, etc.... 

This wonderment followed me into my early teens and…

If Congress truly represents us...

I received the following in an email, with a request that include it in a blog post. I thought it was worth sharing for its well thought out ideas that would be good for our country. However, when I expressed my doubts, to the sender, about the lack of members of congress lining up to jump on the bandwagon he had this to say.

It's a pipe dream. Still, there's no harm in spreading it around. The more people that see it, the better the chances that some of them will say something…

Humanity Has No Need For God

Why do the most highly religious societies tend to be the most poverty stricken, crime ridden, hungry, illiterate, undereducated, unsafe, violent and aggressive societies on Earth? Even if religiosity is not a direct cause of these fundamental ills, why does it correlate so strongly with the worst tendencies and instincts humanity has to offer? Why is it that when religiosity insinuates itself more strongly in the secular world, that societies seem to tend…

It's all a matter of time...

Dear Members,

LA Riots Over Lakers Win - WHAT THE F?!

Alright, this is bullshit... if your team WINS then why are you tearing up YOUR CITY? Call me crazy but in most places a joyous celebration usually doesn't turn violent.... does it?

Basically there are people IDIOTS running around, jumping on cars and toppling things while the usually trigger happy LAPD just sit back and let it happen. I can not begin to describe how big of a headache I have attempting to…

Stalking UU

I don't know what the heck I am thinking. I am totally atheistic and kind of hostile to religion in general, and xtianity specifically. The last time I semi-willingly went to a church was a midnight mass at Our Lady of Concrete, in order to please the parents of my first ex-wife. Needless to say, I was not married in a church either time, and the second time avoided any mention of the G-word, save a brief reading from Ecclesiastes, or something, to avoid the tittering of the extra-xtian family… Continue

A|N - worthy experiment.

It will be interesting to watch A|N grow with time. Right now it seems like a pretty small community, and I feel a little self-conscious posting stuff, since unlike MySpace, or Facebook, anything you say or post seems to shoot straight to the top of the main-page for all to see and yak about. Not sure I like it personally, but it will probably help the community to grow. Once it reaches a sufficient size, some degree of anonymity will be restored as one's musings will be quickly buried in the… Continue
