Glen, I can relate to your plight. A lot of us West Indian people are totally zonked out on religion and DOGma. We refuse to admit to ourselves that we have been seriously duped, and will defend our ass backward position to the last breath.
Hello Glen, and welcome to this friendly meeting place with its atheist freethinkers who recognise that fictional gods and pervasive religions continue to deceive and control vulnerable superstitious people including defenceless children;
and how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and longer.
Thank you for the book idea! I recently bought that and Letters from the Earth by him. I started Letters from the Earth first, it's very interesting so far. Can't wait to start on Mysterious Stranger next!
Hi Glen, I just read a book by a man with the name Rosenberg - it was a great book, so I don't mind asking if you are any relation? Marshall B Rosenberg - and his book Nonviolent Communication? Although, like any surname, there are probably many of you around the place... :)
Thanks for reading what I wrote, it is Oriental Medical,not vitalism, it has system of Soil, Fire, Water,Mineral,and Plant ,and led by Yin and Yang factors.I am glad you have interest in it.
TCM---Traditional Chinese Medicine, such school exists in America, I met America students in China before, sometimes I puzzuled how they translated the books, I have English translation version, but even read it in Chinese, I am puzzled , a lot of students of Medical university in China, can not understand it well. Of course, I always doubt if a doctor could give a good fomula to a patient because the standard is feeling of patients and doctor, it is feeling treatment, doctor can combine herbs freely as he regards, no same one , as river is always going on, fomula changed according to age,weight,season, day or night, south or north,femal or male,each person has a different one if same disease occured. Generally producing in mass also
Thanks Glen. But not quite sure which post you're referring to! Alice's blog re:Biblical contradictions, or her discussion thread to which I've interjected quite a bit! You have a sense of humour I like.

i've got no problem with everyone saying "merry christmas" on christmas day. however, they've turned it into an entire holiday season where it lasts a month or more. in those situations it should be perfectly acceptable to say "happy holidays" or call it a…
I posted the bulk of this on another thread, but wanted to add some context separately.
I finally confronted my faith and embraced the fact of my atheism late last August, 2012. Days after I revealed my "epiphany" to a few friends who knew me from another message board, my sister died from Lou Gehrig's Disease (which pissed her off because she hated catching a disease from someone she never f---ed).
THAT was my sister, understand? She was a beautiful, life-loving, potty-mouthed…
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…
