To me it is very important that the color scheme reflect and celebrate diversity. My nephew is in an interracial relationship, and has an amazing daughter Grace, of whom we expect great things. I would like to have our family members' names embroidered onto the quilt and have enough space for new names to be added. Quilting is celebrated in African-American and many other traditions. My mother learned it from her grandmother and we are hoping that… Continue

We have spent one memorable year together.. It's been a time of growth and change in the mental health system that we have explored together. We are a vital part of the Recovery Advisory Committee that has guided the implementation of Comprehensive Community Services. This Medicaid benefit could potentially speed the recovery of people in Milwaukee County. It may seem strange or unromantic talking about the work that brought us together but that work is an outgrowth… Continue

We are halfway through the end of the year holiday season and and so we should take stock off all that we have learned. Lizzy and are are celebrating 14 months of her stubbornly suggesting that I should change my mind when I know I am perfectly right. I just picked up the meat thermometer which reminded me of an amusing incident a week or two ago.
We had gone to the farmer’s market at the 27th street domes and met the… Continue

I have no one right now to talk to. No one at all. So for now, I suppose a cruddy blog will have to do. But I can't hold back any more because I feel like my emotional state is just spiraling out of control over something that happened to me a few weeks before Thanksgiving that drudged up a lot of very deep old wounds. It wasn't even something bad, rather, it had the potential to be something good. But because I have a lot of issues with forming bonds with people due to my past experiences with… Continue

In this site there is two men for every woman Atheist Nexus member. Why comment on this? Because it seems that no one really believes me when I say there is not a lot of women out there who are atheist to date. Lets say there is ten percent of the population who is actually atheist, what part of them are actually a woman? How many of those are available? How many of those are actually interested in a relationship? I'm just saying, am I right or am I wrong?

It is in a way, my own Manifesto.
I believe --
.... that just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't love each other.
And just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do.
I believe --
....that we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.
I believe --…

Eight years ago, after quite a bit of scientific study and no small amount of soul-searching, I left the Christian Faith and began life anew as an atheist. My mother is, and probably always will be, crushed that I left, and is terrified of the prospect that I am (in her mind) going to burn in torment forever. Continue

I'm interested in this guy at school who is a Christian. He and I are really just friends now and I would like to know if he might want to date. I haven't told him that I'm Atheist and I haven't told him that I liked him (I'm getting to it) but have any of you every heard of or been in this type of relationship? I feel that he himself would be fine with it but I wouldn't want to date him if it would cause friction and distance between him and his parents.
Any thoughts or ideas?

I did an internet radio/podcast with Deborah Cooper of Sucka Free Dating this week. It was unusual and fun to say the least. You can listen at this link:
The angle was very different than other podcasts I have done since it was more focused on how religion affects relationships and sexuality.

Yet another Social Networking Site - Whiskey Tango Foxtrot! "You really should join!"
So anyway, I went ahead and joined AtheistNexus. I have too many theistic friends and family on Facebook; I was having to go back to MySpace to really speak my mind, but mostly as a lone voice crying in the wilderness. I've been slightly more assertive on Facebook of late, but it is never far from my mind that one of my longtime High School friends is an Episcopal priest, while two… Continue

I stand firm with my thoughts on Darwinian Natural Selection. I’m quite sure that it has happened in humans in even recorded history. I think that the technological advances, and forms of entertainment, all have implications of evoluation. Since the dawn of man we’ve been evolving and furthering our thinking.
To better survive in an ever changing… Continue

I think most people would agree that love is a strange thing. When you are in love, you loose all logic and reason. The newest way to fall in love is internet dating, which has become immensely popular during the past years. However, internet dating aside, the MMO community has recently caused a lot of weddings to be held all over the world, made people marry each other despite cultural differences, language barriers and huge distances keeping the lovers apart. It has also maybe quite… Continue
