LIFE IS GREAT. I am not longer new to this site neither new to Atheism. I am one of the lucky ones. Yes, I was born into an Atheist family, in Argentina.

Everybody says my Spanish accent is quite charming.

On Sept. 6, 1986 I became an USA Citizen...one of the proudest days in my life.

IF YOU BELIEVE IN GOD, PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ME.

If Spanish is your native language...please, don't contact me either.

Outgoing, honest, better in small groups, fun to be with...are some of the words that describe me...as well as do " I love the outdoors, my profession and my friends.
Spending time with my friends and fixing things around my home are only two of the many thing I enjoy.

So, what happens on Nude beaches? I'm sure people get aroused? Asking for a friend..
DUCHESSA comments on Apr 20, 2018:
If a guy gets "in shape" and he is a decent person...he goes to the water and refreshes himself; he wouldn't be the first...nor the last...to experience this. He also can turn over his butt to the sun and wait until his erection goes away. No drinking / drugs in the beaches. Getting aroused in a nude resort may get him banned. No, there is not sexual acrivity in the nude beaches...here, in Australia, Argentina or in Europe.
Do you have nicknames for your pets?

DUCHESSA comments on Apr 20, 2018:

If you were forced to put together an atheist "church" service on Sunday, what would your "sermon"...
DUCHESSA comments on Apr 20, 2018:
Since atheist and church are the same as black and white....you don't have to worry about putting them together.
If you had to legally change your name what would you switch it to?

DUCHESSA comments on Apr 20, 2018:
Last Wednesday, at a retired teachers'lunch I mentioned I am a nudist. Several colleagues were offended by my comment....to which I said "Why are you offended? I was even born w/o clothes. General laughs.

Where Does Religion Come From?
DUCHESSA comments on Apr 18, 2018:
It comes from the uncanny need of people to explain those things for which there is not an explanation.
How do you tell religious people that you're an atheist?
DUCHESSA comments on Apr 18, 2018:
By saying "I am Atheist".

Atheism and socialization
DUCHESSA comments on Apr 17, 2018:
Who wants to socialize with believers....? pleeeeeeeeeeease
Has anyone come across any fake profiles?
DUCHESSA comments on Apr 17, 2018:

DUCHESSA comments on Apr 16, 2018:
The problem is that people....in their induced ignorance....believe every stupid thing their pastor / priest / deacon tells them....Why they tell them these things? Because they are very scared of the rise and spreading of Atheism; they see their "golden hen" flying away from their pockets.
I've screwed up again. I started chatting with a guy on a dating site and he seemed nice. Not ...

DUCHESSA comments on Apr 16, 2018:
Does people really need a book to tell them how ridiculous is to believe that an entity -which conveniently looks like a human- jumps from cloud to cloud, 24 x 7, and watches everything we do? Please, we are reaching the first quarter of the XXI century and the stupidity has to go....Mankind needs to jump out of this ignorance.

DUCHESSA comments on Apr 15, 2018:
I used to enjoy pretty hot showers....until the day I woke up with an eczema that covered almost my entire back; it was hot and feverish. The dermatologist prescribed some meds but I ignored him and used coconut oil, Eczema gone in two days. Now, only warm showers.
69 Visitors and no one says 'hello'
DUCHESSA comments on Apr 15, 2018:
After reading / answering your post I went to my profile and I found out that 278 members visited it since I joined. Guess what? No one said "Hello" to me. Should I cry and get depressed?
Embarrassing nickname?
DUCHESSA comments on Apr 15, 2018:
No embarrassing nickname but a "pisses me off diminutive". While some people call me Sil (I love it) other had the bad taste of addressing me as "Silvita". I ignored them.
69 Visitors and no one says 'hello'
DUCHESSA comments on Apr 15, 2018:
Why I visit a profile? To see if the person "is what I am looking for". OK? Well, let say I find a gent that fulfills most of what I want in a partner...but he lives 2,000Kms /miles away. You can bet your nose -and win- I won't say hello to that person.
How many of you older people listen to current pop music, or is it only "noise" to you? Seems ...
DUCHESSA comments on Apr 15, 2018:

Making whites white again.
DUCHESSA comments on Apr 14, 2018:
Mrs. Steward's bluing. Bluing the whites is as old as ever. If I am not mistaken, the whitening properties of this colloid was discovered by accident when a "piece of blue" fall in one of the batches where paper was being made ions ago

DUCHESSA comments on Apr 13, 2018:
At the "very mature age OF 12 Y/O" my brother told my parents he was quitting school and going to work. My mother told him "OK, but also find a place to live because we don't like freeloaders. " My mother knew he would go to my grandmother's home. My mother called my granny and told her what was going on. Granny, wise as ever, said not to worry. Yes, my brother went to granny's....three hrs away, by train. From the go she gave him work in exchange for food/shelter. My brother had to paint the entire fence, go into town to get the newspaper and other necessities -every day before 5 am, help the ranch's foreman and few other things.... After a week he was back home and ready to return to school.

Have you ever felt guilty about how you treated someone.
DUCHESSA comments on Apr 11, 2018:
No, not guilty but kind of ashamed about my reaction. The fact the other person deserved to be put on her place doesn't justify my choice of words.
Have you ever met anybody who actually believed the Earth was 6,000 years old?

Prayer at extended family meals
DUCHESSA comments on Apr 11, 2018:
I never had prayers at home because I was born into an Atheist family....but when I go to a person's home I don't participate in saying grace or prayers...and if they ask me to leave I do. Conversely, if a person insists in praying / saying grace in my home...or evangelizing the other friends I ask that person to leave...if he/she doesn't I call the cops and have him/her removed.

Is abortion morally objectionable?
DUCHESSA comments on Apr 10, 2018:
WELL, IN MY OTHER COUNTRY THE DEBATE ON ABORTION IS GOING ON RIGHT NOW. I WISH i WAS THERE TO TELL SOME LEGISLATORS HOW IS THE LIFE OF A KID WHOSE "MOTHER" WANTED TO ABORT HIM /HER BUT WAS CONVINCED TO HAVE THE CHILD. What is morally objectionable is to try to impose one's way of thinking on another person. In the case of abortion it could lead to the most horrible neglect a child could endure

Sharkphobia...LOL At 4 y/o I asked if at the bottom of the Patagonian's rivers (which are crystal clear) sharks were swimming. My "adorable 18 y/o sister" placed my head under water for an eternity to show me no sharks were around. Since them I don't swim with my head under the water. LOL
Texas Bill Prohibiting Male Masturbation Moves Closer To Becoming Law
DUCHESSA comments on Apr 9, 2018:

DUCHESSA comments on Apr 9, 2018:
I allow myself to guess you have been teased / insulted on account of your weight. This world is plagued with ass..e who are too busy looking at other people to avoid fixing themselves. To be overweight -three lbs or twenty lbs- is only a problem if it affects your health. I care about the person...and a skinny / fat ass...e won't make my friend list. Welcome and be happy.

What wrong assumptions do people frequently make of you?
DUCHESSA comments on Apr 7, 2018:
This is a funny one...at least for me. I was eating lunch at a restaurant near the school where I last taught. I was chatting on the phone with a friend when a restaurant patron approached me and said "You all Spics factory workers go back home." I ignored him and I went back to the school to prepare things for Parents / Teachers Night. Guess who came in...with his daughter? Yes the guy who called me Spic. IAW, many people assume I am an ignorant, person because I speak with an accent. The guy...after the conference....said to me "I will never judge another person. " I reminded silent.

Since my teens and until my forties I was "never wrong"....One day a friend who knew me from childhood told me why I acted in such stupid way. She said: "You -like most in our generation- were taught how to do everything the right way by being told that you were always wrong." She was correct and until that day I was a person who had great difficulty accepting when I was wrong.

Now, I ask: What is the Honduran government doing to prevent this exodus....what are the authorities doing to provide those basic needs all human being deserve....? Why, again and again, must be USA the country that helps them? Please.
