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 response to a beloved cousin who recently appeared on my doorstep.

Posted on July 18, 2014 at 9:07am 0 Comments

As you are well aware, I express my thoughts and feelings as honestly as I can, and it gets me into more problems than need to occur. In my 78 years of living, I gained nothing by remaining silent in face of what confronts me. I paid a terrible price for remaining silent when I should have screamed at the top of my lungs, and sadly, my kids paid the price for my cowardice. 

I don’t mean to imply that remaining silent is cowardice in all…

Jesus Christ is King by Joshua Feuerstein

Posted on June 21, 2014 at 12:22am 6 Comments

Direct quotes from Joshua Feuerstein:

I watched a video Jesus Christ is King. Here are some direct quotes: 

“Evolution is not a science and never will be because it was never observed.”

“Evolution is just a theory.”

“Chaos can never produce order.”

“Everything works like a clock; it has order.”

The universe “had to be through Intelligent Design.”

“I can’t look at all that creation and say that it was an accident.” 

“Creation has…

Criticism

Posted on June 19, 2014 at 11:30am 5 Comments

I know the impact of criticism, I've known it all my life. It begins with my family who expects me to fit in, to think as they do, to do the things that they do, to remain silent because I say things they don't want to hear or read. 

Sometimes the criticism is constructive, offering me a new frame of reference, pointing out a contradiction, exposing my biases and these are all valuable and important in my creative processes. 

There is another kind of criticism that is less…

Dream And Reality, by Dove of Peace, an Iranian woman

Posted on June 15, 2014 at 4:11pm 0 Comments

"If you only live in the dream and not in the reality

then you will get lost in your imagination.

If you only live in the reality and not in the dream

then you will be lost in the materialistic world.

Make therefore your reality to a dream and…

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.

It's me again!  And yeah, I been at it again, mostly because Seth Andrews has been at it again ... and I thought you'd like to know!

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

At 4:00pm on April 17, 2014, Luara said…

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.

Hi Joan,

My background is in math - bachelor's in math from Caltech, although I've learned a lot since then :)
