How to deal gently with religious family members?

Started this discussion. Last reply by JC Samson Nov 19, 2012. 4 Replies

My mother is a Mormon and has accepted my atheism, more or less (I bet she still prays for me). She's really intelligent, so I like talking with her about my ideas but I don't want to hurt her…Continue

Started this discussion. Last reply by Suzanne Olson-Hyde Mar 14, 2013. 56 Replies

Do atheists generally believe euthanasia is a good idea? Is it a religious concept to let God decide who lives or dies, while making the healthcare system do everything possible to keep someone…Continue

Negative biases against Islamic people.

Started this discussion. Last reply by Umbra Nov 16, 2012. 25 Replies

This is hard to admit in a public forum, but I hope I can say this in the right way and get the discussion I think is necessary around this issue. I live in a very rural area so I don't know a lot of…Continue

Will women ever be equal until men change?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Unseen Nov 13, 2012. 47 Replies

"That was my concern. Intestinal tearing and what-have-you. Barbiturates, hydrocodones, and 80 proof. Sounds solid. Easier to get than a gun, makes less of a mess (more considerate)... just have to make sure I don't soil myself."

Unseen replied to Erin's discussion 'Euthanasia'
"Probably twenty hydrocodones (Vicodin) would do it on their own, but chugging a half bottle of 80 proof bourbon, vodka, or whatever would make sure. I'm not an expert, but I doubt you'd be conscious long enough to wish any tummy pain would…"
