Greetings, Debbie! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since Oct. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
Hi Debbie could you sign my petition for a secular education system as I am trying to get it off the ground. If you could join the group on facebook and spread the word http://www.secularpetition.com. The facebook group is Petition for a secular irish education system. Thanks for your help
I was born and grew up as an atheist. I was converted to Mormon at mid-twenties after I came to U.S. After I had practiced Mormonism for a few years, I finally left church and then was back to my atheism background where I should be.
As far as I know, there are no LDS activities in mainland China except Hong Kong SAR and Shenzhen, a big city adjacent to Hong Kong. Maybe LDS activities in Shenzhen are secretly conducted. I am not sure. But my classmates who are working in Shenzhen have never heard of Mormon, neither do most young Chinese.
Similarly, I found the term "Ex-Mormon" from Google just yesterday. Also, I like this word very much. I feel it is something I belong to. I hope I can make friends with Exmos and share some thoughts and experience. I will write something about my experience on my introduction board.
I actually spent most of my life in Cork (got out before the blasphemy law tho...is this site illegal in Ireland then? what a ridiculous law).
I'm plugging my 'give something back' pamphlet at the moment - a retort to religious/cult door-to-door recruiters. If they invade my privacy, I might as well try to convert them (or at least annoy them): http://atheistprinciples.tripod.com
Any feedback would be appreciated. Cheers, S
Here's a friendly 'Hello' to Debbie Morris from Dublin
We are pleased to welcome you here among the sensible, rational people of this world.
This is a fantastic meeting place with its 14,400 bright people like you who recognise religion for the superstition and brainwashing fraud that it is---
and that God and gods are fictions like viral parasites in people's heads.

OK. I am venting. My mother died two weeks ago. She was a “god fearing christian.” Before her death she refused all medical treatment. She wanted to be left alone. She even refused to speak with my brother who is a methodist minister. He is a pip, let me tell you! I suspect she did not believe, but a woman born in her time could not and did not state her actual beliefs. This is the opening salvo to all christians; FUCK YOU! I had so many people come and tell…
This probably should not have shocked me as much as it did (especially since I am in Texas). I actually thought my coworkers were playing a joke on me because they know I am an atheist. Sadly, this was no joke. This actually happened.
I work in a psychiatric hospital. The doctors who admit patients are general MDs. (Psychiatrists see patients after admission) Yesterday evening we received several calls from irate parents. A new doctor who was doing admissions yesterday actually…
No Jason Torpy it is you that should be banned for promoting atheism, a belief that has no foundation in reality and zero proof behind it. The letter was a mockery of your atheist beliefs. I request to the board here that they remove Jason for his unverifiable beliefs in atheism for which he has no proof other than his arrogance. The letter was a mockery of atheism. Atheism is stupid and it should be mocked and it…
for once you and I can agree on something. We should disrespect beliefs that are untenable such as the belief that there is no God. Indeed for me to respect you Jason, I cannot respect your belief in non-belief in atheism. Your atheism comes across as arrogrance, smugness, and self righteous. Indeed after reading "An Open Letter to My Religious Friends" I penned one…
