You: I think our emphasis needs to be on being a "community of individuals."
That is exactly how I see society. We are not a individuals (who have not obligations or relations to one another), and we are not entirely collectivist (and devoid of individual freedoms). We are actually a little of both. Both this and that, not this or that. Kind of like a brain. The brain is a single functioning unit made up of trillions of indivual cells. Each cell being recognizable as an individual unit, but their collective cooperations creates the mental gestalt.
brother richard, i bow down to you, oh great one..... thank you for all the work you do to keep this site together. i've "met" so many wonderful people, who, like me, am tired of xians running the world, telling everyone how to think; believing the most ridiculous things. well, i guess you know all about that......again, thank you for having the courage to stand up and shout, I'M NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANYMORE!
Thanks for the friend invite. I've found your take on things (listening to A...News and I guess Chariots of..) to be quite interesting. I find I listen to the podcasts more than once and get more out of them each time. Plus, they're frequently quite funny. (I'm an ex musician, current computer tech and geek.) I am very impressed with how balanced and fair you and Joe are in your reporting and comments. If only the other side would be as fair.
Lovely to meet you Brother Richard.
I think we had no choice but to expose Charlie for what he was especially because he was using atheism to push an intolerant agenda.
Our organisation is promoting another atheist rapper called Proclaim, who is in fact a great guy, and I have let him know about Charlie because I wouldn't want him to get involved in any collabs. I have asked Proclaim to let Greydon Square know the score too because Charlie is sullying the name of infidel rap (which can be a really positive medium) and I don't want them to be victims of guilt by association if they have no knowledge of what this man is about.
Your profile looks fascinating. I am looking forward to getting to learn more about you and other very pleasant members that I have met. This place is amazing, so much so that it's 4.55 am and I'm not in bed. Oops. A/N may be my new addiction. lol
Hi Richard. I think I actually met you at a GUST meeting a month or so ago? Off Bethany Church? I'm not so much the church-y type myself so I might not go back to that particular group, but you all seemed very nice. And this is an awesome site. Thanks for the hospitality! :)
Well Brother Richard, this is a fantastic site! I have been here about three weeks and held off on my thanks to you until I was certain that I would stay. Many other sites are lacking in diversity, and activity, but not here. So thanks for creating such a wonderful place for such a wide range of atheists to interact.
Brother Richard, I believe it would be good for A/N to wider horizens and let fundies and other religionists join the discussions and debates. How else are we going to win this important war for hearts and minds?
Religious nonsense is very vulnerable to the truth.
Hi Brother Richard,
I hate to clutter your wall with a technical concern, but I'm having a lot of difficulty with the Atheist Nexus web page. Whenever I navigate around the page, my browser ... slows ... way ... down--the sluggishness remains even after I close out of the Atheist Nexus page. I was wondering whether others have expressed such concerns and whether you have any suggestions.
