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 too short to dwell on the past. One can be good without god! My whole family proves it.

In about 1994, I ordered a huge bunch of daffodils when the price was right and forgot about the order. I was packed and ready to go to a conference in Europe. I can't remember what or where ... must have been an interesting conference. Then to Turkey to seek out ancient female goddesses. The day before I was to leave, the order arrived - 300 daffodils bulbs. My son, Cary, called to wish me a good trip. I told him the bulbs arrived and he came and planted all…

Rise of the Non-Working Rich, 2014-09-15 

More than three out of four self-described conservatives believe “poor people have it easy because they can get government benefits without doing anything.”

The reality is that most of the USA's poor work two or more jobs. 

David Brooks has never made much sense to me, but his recent statement that "…

Did you know the Vatican is built upon the foundation of a goddess temple with Cybele as the Magna Mater ("Great Mother")? This goddess is so old, she was originally an Anatolian mother goddess. She was, perhaps, a possible precursor in the earliest neolithic at …


Capitalism can't work without a poverty class.

Posted on September 19, 2014 at 12:00pm 10 Comments

Capitalism can't work without a poverty class. In order to increase the numbers of people in the poverty class,

* withhold the kind of education that teaches critical thinking, stress obedience; 

* educate children to remain dependent on church and government as adults; 

* tax wages at a higher rate than investment income, otherwise known as unearned income; 

* spends tax dollars on expensive warring humans and material that creates wealth for the owners of…

Thanks for your welcome Joan. Salutation from across the pond. Only just recently heard of the Atheist Nexus. It seems a nice space.

The pictures are of the inner harbor area of Baltimore. I have a lot more that I want to post but I don't have them organized yet. They are of the waterfront communities of Canton and Fell's Point in Baltimore plus more marina pictures.

Yes I've been on board it. It is the USS Constellation of 1854 which is a twin to Old Iron Sides. The pictures are of the inner harbor area of Baltimore. I took some new ones and am trying to organize them all. I eventually intend to post about 30 more of waterfront cafes, restaurants and festivals not to mention more marina pictures. The building behind the boat called Chesapeake is a National Aquarium.

Dear Joan please visit my site to know what i have to say.
At 5:22pm on September 20, 2014, JanBodh said…
Dear Joan, I was a follower of Hinduism about 2 years ago, since my birth. I am 33 now. I graduated in science and later on studied management. As a child i had firm belief in God and his powers. In our Hindu culture people are very superstitious they teach young ones like that. I have been through some bad patch concerning my health but only modern medicine saved me. My father is a veterinarian and gave me freedom of thought since childhood, he had a close friend at job whom he admired a lot and is an atheist. But my father is not an atheist, he says he believes just because he copies my grandfather who was a firm follower of Hinduism.I feel gifted to be in a family where no one imposes religion on me. Since school days i used to say that the scientists and discovers were real Gods and my parents never ridiculed me.So i calculated myself to be an atheist.
As far as my statement is concerned i can't think of a day, actually afraid of a day, when i have reached the almighty and have known every thing, sitting besides him thinking that there is nothing left, this is the end. I felt scared of that, that if i meet almighty it will be that: i with him or i be him( when i unite with the almighty) what will i do then, what will i think of then....I know this is not possible so i believe in infinity which is the truth about universe; i.e. It's infinite and ever expanding. If we have an almighty it will be the end...the wall of universe, but universe has no wall

It's great inspiration to see a person leave religious beliefs and embracing science. Have a beautiful long life.

I  love hearing your positive words and wisdom on this site.

I have been busy moving - so I've been absent from the site a bit.

Things are getting calmer so I look forward to being more active on the site.

HUGS to you my friend.

Thank you very much. I just want to communicate with like minded people. It's tough when the people you are surrounded with just don't get the change. I hope I'm entitled to a certain amount of privacy. I wouldn't like the stuff I share to be openly discussed on platforms such as Facebook. Anyways, I wish you a good day and thanks again :)

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.
