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

To teach fables, myths, miracles and superstitions as fact is an outrageous thing

Posted on January 28, 2015 at 7:04pm 0 Comments

“Fables should be taught as fables, myths as myths, and miracles as poetic fancies. To teach superstitions as truths is a most terrible thing.”

~ Hypatia  (370 - 415 AD)

Challenge fundamentalist religious on public policies and practices

Posted on January 26, 2015 at 2:40pm 2 Comments

The challenge to fundamentalist religious must be thorough, in the present, and with teeth. The harm of those who use their beliefs based on superstitions injure people, flora and fauna, and the Earth. For individuals to put their confidence on legends of the ancients may bring them comfort and a purpose for being, however, we can not tolerate fundamentalists imposing their beliefs on others.   

It isn't enough to confront the public policies and practices of…

From ignorance to Enlightenment

Posted on January 23, 2015 at 12:49pm 7 Comments

I, as so many others of my generation, grew up in tightly knit christian farming communities with little exposure to "other" races and religions. We were taught that Roman Catholics and Jews were of the devil and the only way to heaven was through the christ.

WW II changed all that. Strong, young men were swept out of the farming communities to go to war or to building wartime facilities. My father and uncles went away for the duration of the war, with the exception of one uncle who…

Hey, Joan!  I got a real goodie for you, courtesy of Seth Andrews!  Please have a look ... and a LAUGH!

Joan, I'm so looking forward to finding a publisher for THE LOST WORLD. It is written in diary format, chapter by chapter reporting the discoveries of the day and giving away my thinking and consequent excitements. The other books are being prepared more like standard textbooks--as they need to be. All the best to you, Terry. 

At 10:42am on December 17, 2014, Dr. Terence Meaden said…

Dear Joan, Thank you. In your message you suggest that Atheist Nexus could be a suitable place to mention the discoveries that I have been reporting on Facebook? Let's see. Here's some background information: I am an archaeologist and simultaneously a strong atheist.  Because of this I have been able to observe, dissect, and analyse the archaeological record deeply and dispassionately which no Christian archeologist has ever been able to do, most of them being religiously biassed. That explains why I have discovered so much about the lost religion of our Neolithic ancestors---my eyes wide open, brain alert, all senses active as I move about the places where the first farmers lived and worshipped. The people were illiterate but they made use of symbols and images---and I have been exploring their world, unlocking secrets . . . and writing papers and books and lecturing. My problem is that I have discovered so much, and started several books---- about 6 on archaeology and 4 on atheism (the latter 4 are finished), and what with the prostate cancer my days seem to be numbered to probably 5 years left. This is why I do little on Atheist Nexus . . . there's so much to do. It will be a tragedy if I don't get all my knowledge published first. So I work and work, maybe 60 hours a week as I always have done . . . and I love it. Ever optimistic though. So as I reflect while I write this, I conclude that I don't want to open up something else, another outlet, that will take time away from the main job. I know you understand that. Affectionately, Terry

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

LemPoot!"

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 http://www.atheistnexus.org/profiles/blog/list?user=2wluhkj14fnrb

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.
