"@ Unseen - elementary school teaching and nannying? I really don't know. My thinking is, as soon as there is a hierarchy, there could well be problems, from the males and females, but for different reasons. Even in a small group, with a…"

"@ Cristynfaye, I was also confused by the same thing. As it turns out, the mention of t-shirts and fake jewelry were references to specific actions which targeted Skepchick and/ or Amy Davis Roth (who makes skeptic-themed jewelry). I stopped…"

"@Suzanne Olson-Hyde I wonder if the anti-male dynamics are much the same in other traditionally female professions such as elementary school teaching and nannying? Well, nannies aren't organized the way nurses and teacher have organizations. At…"

Profile Information

Your Religious Status
Atheist
About Me:
I'm a 28-year-old mommy of a toddler boy in the U.S. Bible belt. When asked what my belief is, my answer is "secular humanist". My position on god varies from god to god. In regards to the named gods, I'm a strong atheist; in regards to an impersonal god/creator, I am a weak atheist. I am also liberal, socialist, vegetarian. I recycle, and I love science. You decide the rest!
Age
25-30
Relationship Status
Single
Why are you here?
I would like to discussion different topics, keep up with atheist/religious current events, learn new and different concepts and information, and (if I'm "lucky") make some friends. Basically, I'm here to grow as a person.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
I would have never lost my faith if not for an atheist taking the time to expose me to information I had never seen nor considered. Within a month, openly discussing a wide range of subjects such as abiogenesis (which I had never heard of), power or prayer, free will, salvation, evolution, scripture. In the end, I had to admit it was possible god didn't exist. That's all it took.

Totally Braced to be Crucified for This....

Posted on January 5, 2013 at 12:34am 60 Comments

I personally agree with T-foot on this.

Misogyny is a real problem.  In a world where rape is still used by militaries to demoralize a country's people, how could this be denied?  In a world where girls are kidnapped and forced into prostitution in droves, how could this be denied?  In a world where women's struggle for equal pay and reproductive…

The C.E.R.T. Approach: My (Flexible) Parenting Philosophy

"The child supplies the power, but the parents have to do the steering." Benjamin Spock (1903-1998)

 

Parenting is hard work. I have many concerns as a parent and as an atheist parent in the bible belt, USA. What do I teach my child? What should…

A Letter to Anti-Labelists

Posted on September 8, 2011 at 9:30pm 15 Comments

 

Dear Homo Sapien who Does Not Like to be Labeled and Feels that Labels are Restrictive and Result in Stereotypes and Boxed-In Self-Images,

 

I think your stance is faulty, for reasons that will become obvious in this post. Short words or phrases that are descriptive of persons, groups, intellectual movements, so on and so forth, have their benefits.…

The Problem of Evil

Posted on October 28, 2010 at 9:58pm 1 Comment

If God is willing to prevent evil, but is not able to

Then He is not omnipotent.

If He is able, but not willing

Then He is malevolent.

If He is both able and willing

Then whence cometh evil?

If He is neither able nor willing

Then why…

I, too, do not believe in the anthropomorphic god of the West (Judeo-Christian-Islam). What do you think of the non-anthropomorphic god that underlies Eastern thought? - Think Hindu, Buddhist, Taoist, Zen, Sikh. Do you think this non-human-like "force" can be considered a god?
