"Elohim (pronounced el oh heem) is a plural form of El. Theists take El to be just another name of god. El is not a singular name."

"Michael, you are right; I think "Elohim" is the plural form of "El." IMO gods are (and have been) the worst inventions of mankind."

About Me:
I changed from faith to science. I am a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, a survivor of breast cancer thanks to the fine diagnostic work and treatment at Cancer Care Northwest, which included chemotherapy and radiation. Dreadful stuff, but a wake up to living each and every minute. Life is too short to dwell on the past. One can be good without god! My whole family proves it.

My research on family violence and training programs of non-violent interactions

Posted on August 24, 2014 at 8:21pm 2 Comments

The focus of my research in 1977-79 was on the factors that contribute to maintaining and sustaining family violence. I found that all institutions, family, church, education, health care, laws, and law enforcement did not take the word of a child or battered spouse seriously, ignored or denied abuse occurred, and did not do what was necessary to make changed that needed to be made. Furthermore, I found the highest incident rate of child abuse occurred in homes of the religious. This was…

Welcome to the Age of Denial

As more and more ways of knowing become available, as more information easily comes through our computers, it is exciting to track down information to see if it is validated with evidence or repeated based on a belief.  Sorting through the overload of news outlets with unreliable sources can be…

Glad to hear that. I am so so right now. I've battled depression my whole life but I did not hang myself like Robin Williams did. I take my meds. Nice to meet you Joan.

Hi Joan! Welcome to the DNA Tested Nonbelievers group. Feel free to tell us anything to everything about any DNA testing you have undergone or plan to undergo. All that you need do is start a discussion in the group about it. Of course you don’t have to. Welcome again and I hope you enjoy the group.

Hey, Joan.

Don't know if you subscribe to Delanceyplace.com, but I thought today's entry would be of particular interest to you.

To answer your query about my father--yes, he lives alone in a duplex adjacent (part of) to a retirement community. He does quite well. Lost his wife ( my mother) 13 yrs ago.

Silly me - I have to ask: have you seen this?

HEY, Joan!

I don't know whether you saw my piece about an article in our local newspaper or my participation in it, but I wanted to be sure you were aware of it.  Yeah, I'm showing off a bit [GRIN!], but I think it's pretty neat, too, as well as something you'd be interested in.

Thank you, =)

As a dyslexic, misspellings do not offend me, and occasionally they entertain me. XD

thanks, but I don't want to exchange private messages.  You seem like a nice person and I feel kindly towards you but I don't want to get into a private discussion.
