Dad is dying.

I've never been affected at all by people around me dying, but I've also never had anyone this close die. So now I'll learn how I deal with death.

 

All of the relatives are posting messages on Facebook saying "prayers coming in from here" and "more prayers coming from here." I know I shouldn't be insulted by this. He was a Christian and probably would be grateful for these (if he weren't unconscious and all), but it all just seems so silly, like they aren't taking it…

My Father's Funeral, an Atheist's Funeral.

  A few weeks ago my father passed away. Like me he was an Atheist. Like me he had been one since he was a young man. I was six when I “became” one, or rather realized, like with Santa, the Easter Bunny,

ghosts and all, it was all made up.

  So in keeping with my father’s wishes we had a non-religious funeral.  I gave the eulogy. I spoke about his life.  What he had…

Goodbye Dad

My father is dying. He is dying but he is happy. He will be 80 in October and he may make it that far, though we are not sure. He is in pain and he has been struggling for many years with breathing and chest pain as well as pain in his legs.

But I do not want to dwell on the pain. I think there are many women who think of their fathers as heroes. I know this is true for me. When I was little I wanted to be just like him and one would often…

Alezheimers, Waltzing IV's and The Living Loss of a Loved One



Over the last few years my grandmother-in-law’s memory has been slipping away from her, but has been more of an inconvenience than a danger. At times, she seems like she might be a good natured, well loved, background character in a sitcom about senior citizens. Convinced the cat has run away, stolen by the neighbor, or met a horrific end, every few minutes, she queries anyone in her eye-line as to the relative location of her nearly homebound… Continue

being a martyr for something stupid

There was a post on cafe bitch, asking believers AND non-believers, if they felt strongly enough to die for their religion, or lack of. First of all, I should've known it was a bait-and-trap post, but I took the bait. I told her, that I have two boys to raise, and that words are not worth dying for. If somebody had a gun to my head, I would say I believe in flying green monkeys, if that's what they wanted to hear. It doesn't mean anything and it doesn't change the fact that I don't believe in… Continue

God takes credit for Mother Nature

I’m aggravated with people (creationists) giving “God” all the credit all the time for everything that they find good, beautiful, and right, in their lives. This man-made “God” gets all of the credit that should go to Nature. People need to respect Nature, the Universe, not God. If people don’t take care of our only known livable planet, it will die, and us along with it. Admit it; there is and will be no God to save us when we have destroyed the planet and all of its resources. I’m sure the… Continue
