Politics, Economics, and Religion

Religion has so many connections to political and economic beliefs, there needs to be a place to identify linkages, problems, goals, options, action plans and evaluation criteria.  See More

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 surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Dreadful stuff, but a wake up to living each and every minute. Life is to remember the past, live in the present and remember a preferred future. One can be good without god! My family demonstrates it

I am an atheist bearing witness to atrocity of hate-mongering by people of the bible

Posted on November 24, 2014 at 11:24pm 2 Comments

People tell me that god is the god of love and justice. I read in the bible that truth will set me free. I also read a list of lies, distortions, delusions that rival any of Brothers Grimm's fairy tales. I read and see murders, genocides, obscenities to match any pornography of modern authors and wonder if anyone who believes in god has ever read this sacred book. I watch as people who claim to be full of love and compassion carry signs declaring hate for women's right to control their own…


We need a new Social Contract, by D R (Donnie) Hosie

Posted on November 1, 2014 at 9:55pm 6 Comments

If there is no heaven or hell after we die, if there is only nothing, the same kind of nothing that existed before we were born, then we return to nothing when we die. Therefore, it seems to me we have to make full use of what little time we have. 

Realizing this is IT, that we have no second chance, no reincarnation,…


How Jesus became God on Humanist Hour

Have you ever walked across the ice on a frozen lake and begin to see small cracks form under your feet? The cracks become bigger, making a pretty sound ... until you realize that the ice is not going to hold you and you have to change direction, and really fast or tragedy will occur?

That is what it was like for me when I believed in god and Jesus. I taught and was superintendent of Sunday schools, belonged to and held leadership roles in the women's bible study groups and outreach…

Learning, for me, is  constant throughout life.  I welcome the opportunity to be taught.

You're in good historic company as a radical.  I was following the Talpoit Tomb, boy did the Jews shit at the thought of pissing off the witch burners!  It blows their whole fairy tale out of the water.  I can't understand how people can look around the fact, "Jesus...the organization that bears his name is history's greatest contradiction to his doctrines

Hey, Joan!

Here's a little something in re: the last election which I suspect you should see.

Thanks! I'm still trying to figure the site out. I'm so excited to find it!!

Greetings-  You asked if you could cite "my piece on morality" on Twitter and Facebook; certainly you may. Please note that I have a number of such pieces, admittedly putting across the same idea to different audiences at different lengths. The longest piece is the first one I posted, so it is at the bottom of the last page of my blog. Pieces related to ethics are on all three pages. See

Thank you Joan! A lot of what you said are some of the things I've come across in my search of educating myself so when I do find myself in a conversation I will have the proper tools to back up what I'm saying and how I feel. I know that with time and continuing to learn more I will be more confidant and content in my stance. Thanks for your words I really appreciate it.

Thanks Joan.  Your comment about our insults helping him out was a very helpful reminder.

Based what I hear on the news, diabetes may not have long to live!  I heard a news story somewhere about a researcher using stem cells to create cells which generate insulin and can regulate sugar levels in the blood!

It may be a while, but one day, I'd love to toast you with a Spanish Coffee, such the formula I described, and have you enjoy one as well!  We'll figure it out!

At 9:56pm on October 10, 2014, Loren Miller said…

Okay, Joan ... try this on for size:

Start with a brandy snifter or stemmed glass coffee mug (ideally).  Ingredients:

  • One jigger Kahlua
  • One jigger Cointreau
  • Hot black coffee
  • Whipped cream on top
  • Sprinkle cinnamon over all

Trust me ... it is the best damned dessert coffee you ever had!
