Once upon a time a long time ago...

Posted in Apologetics on Tue, Mar 19 2019 - 01:46 PM

 Once upon a time a long time ago, a fellow named Tony (Dionysus) invited me to follow him to a debate forum on a Christian website called Praize.  I did and it changed me.   No, not into a believer, but slowly into a more mellow atheist.   I was determined to provide for Christians the evidence, which was in me, that...

Not Chocolate, But Maybe A Crossword Puzzle…

Not Chocolate, But Maybe A Crossword Puzzle…      Remember when Forest’s Momma said that “life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you are going to get” and he thought that was a pretty sound philosophy?  It seems to me that once one has a bit of experience, one can figure out what...

Modern Temptation...

Posted in Friends on Fri, May 15 2015 - 02:29 PM

| Comment (1)

     I am so thankful that my husband and children did not succumb to the modern day temptation of overpriced consumerism for Mother's Day.  Thank you for getting me flowers: a flowering basket, some bedding plants and a modest bouquet from the local WalMart.  Thank you for my favorite music CD and my favorite and hard to...

It seems as if it could never end...

Day to day life in America seems to just go on about me as if it could never end or change..but it has changed dramatically over the last couple of decades and it could end.  Recently, I have been amazed when a few intelligent people who are politically savy and serve prominently as elected officials have revealed to me that their fears are...

First they came for the Jews...

Posted in News on Thu, Jun 02 2011 - 11:58 AM

| Comments (2)

 FIRST THEY CAME FOR THE JEWS… This Evil is rearing up again.  It is OUR PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY to stand against this Evil or will we let the past repeat itself?  Did not the world say NEVER AGAIN?  What will our children and grandchildren say about us if we fail to stand this time for Israel and for the Jews? ...

Was Joseph McCarthy Right?

Posted in News on Tue, May 24 2011 - 10:56 AM

Many of us are very concerned about the path set out by the Communists in this country over a hundred years ago.  It was Stalin who said that all Communists had to do was to destroy Patriotism, Morality and Spiritual Life and America will collapse from within.  Do you see that is what has been happening for so long?   They are...

Does Israel matter?

Posted in News on Tue, May 24 2011 - 09:39 AM

| Comments (3)

 Are you keeping up with the status of Israel in world affairs?  I believe it is critical that those who support Israel's right to exist stand with them and speak up when they are threatened verbally or physically, as has been happening more frequently.  Glenn Beck is one strong voice who is standing with them and reporting on ...

What would we do without worry?

Posted in Apologetics on Wed, Sep 16 2009 - 04:52 PM

The state of things make me worry. I am worried that our Republic may have some very rough times ahead. I am worried that somebody will do something either stupid or duplicitous and send us into chaos. I am worried that our Congress may allow itself to be made irrelevant by the current administration. I am worried that our Afghanistan battles...

Pushing 55...

Posted in Apologetics on Fri, Nov 14 2008 - 05:33 AM

Hello all. Long time, no blog. I finally got a new computer so I can completely load this site...see all the buttons, see pictures, post on my log, etc. Still on dial-up, though...argh! Walked out yesterday morning, just loving the world. I am often in such awe over the beauty of it all...the miracle of it all. The more I learn, the more...

Hopelessness...

Posted in Apologetics on Fri, Jun 22 2007 - 02:14 PM

There have been so many bad news stories in the papers lately, but I am particularly saddened by the one about the mom in her sixties, who was the caregiver to her Down Syndrome daughter in her twenties. The mother was dying from cancer, and apparently felt that there was nobody who could or would care for her daughter after her death or when...

Long time, no blog...but still atheist.

Posted in Apologetics on Wed, Jun 20 2007 - 08:15 PM

Hello all! I have been away from this blog for a long time. Thanks to all who stopped by to read or just say hello. A lot has happened in the past months, but I remain a strong atheist still. There were a few days in March of this year, when I considered crashing the van into a telephone pole to be a good idea, thus ending my life and my...

For Virginia Anne, et al...

Posted in Apologetics on Sun, Aug 06 2006 - 09:11 PM

It has been throughly explained to me by certain members on Praize that atheists are fools, are utterly without any good in them, and are even incapable of doing good. Atheists always seek to undermine good works and good people. Atheists always work against the christian church and against christians to bring them down in the gutter with all...

Meandering thoughts....

Posted in Apologetics on Thu, Mar 30 2006 - 12:21 AM

If there is one truth about human beings, it is that every single one of us is screwed up in one way or another.....that is, and this should come as no surprise to christians, nobody is perfect...or even close! LOL! I think about my family, and as dear as they are to me....dear gawd!..sometimes they drive me bonkers! Other times one or more just ...

Boondock Saints...Divine Retribution and/or Human Vengence?

Posted in Apologetics on Tue, Mar 14 2006 - 10:18 AM

What do you guys think of "The Boondock Saints"? and I don't mean Willem DaFoe in drag.... Is it a form of divine justice or are the boys and their da just delusional pyscho killers who choose to inflict human justice on bad people? Are they any different from any other knights who operated under God's guidance to rid humanity of those who...

Because I Am An Atheist....

Posted in Apologetics on Tue, Feb 28 2006 - 07:45 AM

I depend upon myself, my family, my friends....as I suspect do theists, also. Because I am an atheist, I have only myself to blame when my plans go wrong, if I cannot provide for my family, if I become ill from exposure to germs or diseased from poor habits. I do not call upon a supernatural entity to protect me or mine, to save my property from ...

To All My Caring Friends...

Posted in Apologetics on Wed, Feb 22 2006 - 04:58 PM

I appreciate the "gentle nudges" toward belief, but please know that even if I am totally surprised at the end, I am willing to stand upon my life as an ethical atheist before any deity for my judgment. Who knows what one may find on the path of one's life journey, but I know that my path is illuminated by the light of a sense of oneness with...

Still An Atheist...

Posted in Apologetics on Mon, Jan 16 2006 - 01:38 PM

While there are "things" that cannot be seen even with a powerful microscope or telescope, scientists have recorded effects of these very tiny or very far away objects in action. (really simple, nontechnical explanation here). And these "things" exist in what is generally acknowledged to be the material world. Now, God and angels, Satan and...

Alone Again.... Naturally

Posted in Apologetics on Tue, Nov 01 2005 - 11:33 AM

Someone once wrote to me: "It actually takes more guts to believe what you don't see, than to rely on only what you can." Guts to believe in a God who cares for everything you do, who is with you always, who will gather you home upon death, who will punish those who do evil to you for all eternity? That isn't guts, that is eternal parental...

Fear of Death?

Posted in Apologetics on Thu, Oct 20 2005 - 01:26 PM

I have yet to meet an atheist who fears death. I do not fear death. I do, however, fear pain and indignity, but that may be the process of dying. I will still be alive when I am dying, and that I fear if it is painful. But death, the end of life...that I do not fear. Death is part of life. I experience death on a daily basis, as I raise...

An Atheist Funeral Service

Posted in Apologetics on Tue, Oct 18 2005 - 02:57 PM

My birthday is on December 30th, and I would have willingly shared it with my father’s funeral service, but he was buried instead on December 31st, 2003....just two days away from his 90th birthday. The ceremony was unplanned, but my sister and I knew we wanted no religious trappings, no pastor, no reading of scripture, no praying. Dad was a...

Letting Go...

Posted in Apologetics on Mon, Oct 17 2005 - 02:28 PM

When my Daddy was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease quite a few years ago, he had all ready passed through a time when an early mini-stroke had made him into an irritable old man....like his brothers and father before him, and had, thanks to another mini-stroke, become the lovable, huggable, very funny, and kind fellow he was to the end. I know...

Prejudice

Posted in Apologetics on Sun, Oct 09 2005 - 10:52 AM

We watched a movie last night called "Crash" ....very good, very moving, very important movie for thoughtful people. How complicated human relationships are, and powerfully influenced are these relationships by that which hides within each of us. Sometimes it hides deeply so that we aren't even aware that it is there colouring our image of other...
