Sappho Speaks: Liberals, Labeling and How Much We Lose

What Would Sappho Say? Lectori Salutem! or L.S. (Greetings to the Reader!) I know we were all taught as children not to call each other names and we know how much racism hurts us as a culture (or at least I hope those reading this blog do) but there as so many more ways we use labels in our lives that shut us off from groups, from information, and from individuals and if you are anything like me, it takes someone pointing it out every now and then for a real wake up call to happen in your life so change can begin to rebuild your way of interacting in the world....more

Atheists Bloggers - Embracing the Scarlet A

There is a great book by Octavia Butler called Parable of the Sower. There is a section in the book where a faith based military platoon comes to overtake a peaceful colony and wreck havoc on the citizens. That passage in the book stirred up old and new feeling about the human application of religion, faith and the dark side of belief.

Why I became an Atheist. Part2

The next part of my decision, to become an Atheist, isn't easy to put into words. It was a slow process. My daughter has a degree in anthropoogy and religion. She and I talked many times about other choices for me. She was aware that my thoughts towards Christainity had become quite hostile.  With her guidance, I continued my search. There had to be something for me to believe in. ...more

Why I became an Atheist. Part 1

First a little history. I grew up in a typical mid-western family-dad, mom and 2 sisters. My mother's family are Baptist. My mom, sisters and I attended sunday school every week but didn't stay for church services. My father was not a Baptist, he wanted his family home on Sundays. Even as a child I never felt comfortable in religious settings. Was it because I was looked down on for my father being a sinner or because at a young age I already knew better? ...more

Starting a new blog.

Wow, I was excited to see you have a catogery for atheists. Wow, I was so dissappointed that no one had blogged on it yet. I'm cluless on how to get this started. But I hope some others join! I'm brand new to blogging, so if I make any mistakes, out of ignorance, please forgive me and educate me on blooging. I need time to decide what I want to post about atheism. Maybe I should start with how I  "became" an atheist. Be back soon! ...more
