How I can be so sure there is no god? Well I am 95% sure and simply round it up! I'm antitheist because religion is judgmental, persecutory and each brand believes they have a monopoly on truth.

Once upon a time I worked as a teacher but now work in mental health. I find fulfillment in my work, my family and friends and hobbies. I'm a strong advocate for social justice and have no time for racists or sexists. I'm a feminist and believe feminism has been advantageous for both men and women but I still don't feel fairly represented in government. Politically I favour democratic socialism.

Widowed many years ago, I raised my four wonderful sons.

This reminds me of this JP Sears tedtalk I saw just this morning. If you have time, give it a look. It is well worth it. It's about embracing your weirdness. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksdqzOYIq8Y

Are you telling me it was ANOTHER white young male? Where have all the terrorists gone? If we're going to blame them, they really need to be a bit more pro-active. Praps the YWMs could start their own terrorist training camp.
Does anyone else feel this way?

Dating advice.
MsDemeanour comments on Nov 4, 2018:
Back in the olden days before the internet and couples met through friends, parties or at work, I recall this work colleague. Now he was plain as plain looking but he had a great sense of humour and a hint of wickedness (irrisitable to me). Anyway my attraction for him grew and grew as I got to know him. We flirted and you could light a match to the unresolved sexual tension. Finally we went out and the fireworks were electric. After a few months it fizzled, we weren't suited in other ways. So I don't put a lot of weight on the 'chemistry' bit when it was just a single meeting.
Are you liberal or conservative?
MsDemeanour comments on Nov 4, 2018:
I suspect the conservatives, feeling outnumbered here, are finding it hard to step out of the closet. Be brave and embrace your true identity! I don't want them picked up. I just want to know if a. they vote conservative cos their parents did. b: They don't care about the welfare of the disadvantaged. c: they're part of the .01% that own the wealth in this country and want to protect that wealth at all costs even though they could never possibly need that much.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this survey.
MsDemeanour comments on Nov 3, 2018:
I'm Australian so you won't want my answers but I am very interested in hearing your results. I'd be very interested to know how many people vote opposite to how they were raised. My parents were very right wing but as I grew up, became educated, I switched to left wing because of its humanist leanings.

What's your favourite show or channel to watch on TV?
MsDemeanour comments on Nov 2, 2018:
I love the free to air SBS in my country Australia. It is our multicultural channel and has the best crime series' from the world. Not too much of that american crap. Give Nordic Noir anytime! Ok so it's not for the lazy cos you have to read subtitles but I still love it.
Ok so let's hear how everyone thinks on this issue.
MsDemeanour comments on Nov 2, 2018:
No shoe rules at my house. If I take my shoes off it's simply because I want to go barefoot. Back and front doors wide open when I'm home. (I took the screen doors off cos I don't like them). Polished floors throughout. We used to have a few rugs but when my dog was a pup she weed on them and we never replaced them.
Oddly and a little sadly, the more I come here the less I find.

What is LOVE?
MsDemeanour comments on Oct 19, 2018:
Lots of different kinds of love. The French have five words for our word love. But I am guessing you are talking romantic love. I knew I was really in love with my husband, some months after going out, when I met his family. His family were like mine. We fit together like jigsaw pieces. I recall the feelings of floating on air, the colours being brighter. I was so happy. That passes soon enough. But the birth of our children...what we made together, brought us together in a greater way. We had comfortable silence, similar life views and values. And I knew we could travel around Australia in our retirement and still be best friends. I'm sorry if you have never experienced it. I experienced it just this once and feel incredibly lucky to have had this experience. He died young 18yrs ago but still I am lucky to have experienced this. Anything else would be a lovely bonus but I'm not too concerned if I don't meet someone else
I just joined this site...And I don't get it.

My son's partner just told me about her experience with a tarot reader.
MsDemeanour comments on Oct 15, 2018:
I had a listen to some of the tape. I pointed out the cues my friend gave teh tarot reader. Her love of animals. I don't think she realised she gave the woman this information until she listened again to the tape. Confirmation bias. I am disappointed but not surprised.

What is your Definition of:
MsDemeanour comments on Oct 14, 2018:
Atheism and agnosticism are pretty straight forward but spirituality is far more ambiguous. I believe I'm spiritual because I can be so emotionally moved by things (real things that is) For example, I can be brought to tears when I hear a choir sing Handel's messiah. I'm certainly not religious but it is an amazing piece of work. The exuberance of standing on a precipice, looking down on the vast valley bellow. The thrill of riding my motorbike far too fast, weaving in out of city traffic. THe awe of looking at the vastness of stars as I reflect on how insignificant I am in comparison to the universe. When I create something beautiful and original, it is like an extension of me. When I connect with someone who is a stranger and we realise we are so like-minded. I believe in the interconnectedness of humans and all living things and that no one should be alone because we need each other to thrive. I see the beauty and the pain and this to me is a spiritual experience.
Line dry or mechanical?
MsDemeanour comments on Oct 14, 2018:
Tackling the big questions today eh? You know, I never really thought about. I always line dry just because I always have and electricity is expensive in my country. I do have dryer and I'm using it right now because it has rained, or ive been working for about 7 days in row.
Can I talk about my feelings for a bit?
MsDemeanour comments on Oct 14, 2018:

MsDemeanour comments on Oct 11, 2018:
What I don't understand is why any of the poor vote republican. In my country the poor and working class and those interested in the environment and social justice vote left and the business owners and rich vote right wing. But that line doesn't seem to be so defined in USA. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Better than group delusion
MsDemeanour comments on Oct 11, 2018:
you know....there are so many memes out there with mark twain quotes that I begin to suspect his entire life was filled with speeches. Instead of saying 'pass the salt' he probably said with suitable sincerity: "He who awaits salt shall be rewarded". Instead of saying "I'll put the garbage out" he would've said "To breath fresh air, one must relieve oneself of rubbish".

Do atheists observe Halloween?
MsDemeanour comments on Oct 10, 2018:
When I was a kid, halloween wasn't observed in my country. But american consumerism wasn't going to allow an untapped market so some years back we started adopting it. When my kids were little it was fun to see their delight. I have no interest in it now.
Believers. I've noticed a few people state that they are believers in their profiles. Why come here?
MsDemeanour comments on Oct 10, 2018:
If they were here to question, they would say so on their profile. It is boring and a waste of time debating christians. You can throw them all the scientific evidence, challenge the validity of believing in one document that has no supporting evidence and still they persist in delusion.
Don't you just hate it when you wake up far too early? It's 4AM, and I can't do anything 'till 8:30!
MsDemeanour comments on Oct 10, 2018:
I have two bedrooms in my house. On a working day, I wake early with the sun shining through my eastern side bedroom. I take the dog for a walk at 6am and am at work by 8.30. Now on weekends, I sleep in my bedroom facing the west. It is dark and I sleep longer. But if it is insomnia you have, I listen to a guided relaxtion on 'sleep'. I don't make it through to the end of the audio.....I'm asleep. :D

MsDemeanour comments on Sep 27, 2018:
Thing is, to be an atheist, or at least an agnostic, one tends to be a critical thinker. We look at the evidence, and weigh up the results. Being thinking science based people, we also tend to be environmentalists, humanists, tolerant or race and sex and pro social justice. Now this would be the antithesis of a Trump supporter......just sayin.

I think it's cultural too. "I am muslim, jewish, catholic" is about your history, your identity and as you say your tribe. In fact there are some who call themselves muslim atheists or jewish atheists..... which describes their cultural roots but don't agree with the dogma. The muslim world would consider me and most of you as 'christian' just because we are grouped together and our cultural background is what is being described.

Prejudice 😡
MsDemeanour comments on Sep 13, 2018:
25 yrs ago I was a government employee. I worked in an office with my junior and obviously much younger (male employee). The amount of people who would come to the door and address him, thinking he was the boss because he was male still rankles me. Ok I know this is nothing compared with the violence that others have been subjected to. The continued violence toward women who happen to wear the hijab in a western country; the violent attacks on men simply because they were gay. The daily violence and discrimination faced by the Indigenous people of my own country. But perhaps my tiny experience with discrimination gives a tiny bit of insight into what minority groups must suffer. Is that presumptuous? I hope not
We hear news of thousands of women being raped, but we never hear the news of a man being raped.
MsDemeanour comments on Sep 13, 2018:
Are you talking about being sodomised by another man? Women too can be ferocious and predatory but considering most violent crimes are carried out by men I don't think you need to be on the look out for a violent woman lurking in the park to attack you.

They called their child Star Cloud.
MsDemeanour comments on Sep 12, 2018:
I think if the child is brought up in a loving safe environment s/he will probably determine orientation and gender soon enough. I am reminded of raising my sons and so many times gender stereotypes gave way to biology. One example. I wanted no toy guns in my house. I recall my 3 year old eating the triangular shaped sandwich and leaving the crust. He held hte crust up and said "Bang. Bang". This is just one of many examples. I am not about to argue with millions of years of evolution. Calling their kid star cloud ffs just makes me think they're just after their 15 mins at the expense of their child. There are so many normal unisex names eg Cody, Taylor etc etc. 'Star Cloud' is just a complete wank and unfair to the kid
