I grew up attending a Disciples of Christ (fairly liberal) church, but always considered religion as mere lessons/mythology. I was quickly driven away from "real church" by the anti lgbtqa bigotry and misogyny that I encountered upon attending college.

I am an independent nature lover with a wicked, irreverent sense of humor, and am an unapologetic cat person, who is also drawn to less "popular" things like snakes, frogs, insects etc. I have retired so that I can spend more time enjoying what life has to offer. (“All work and no makes Jack a dull boy”, no?).

Why should agnostics/atheists hide this about themselves?
Zster comments on Aug 3, 2019:
Where we live (rural southeastern US), people around me HAVE been fired for suspected or known disbelief. My children were ostracized by friends and teachers for my disbelief or for their daring to question christian/historical claims. These are not exaggerations or hysterics, but what happens with a majority comprised of poorly educated religious bullies. Be glad if you live where disbelief is not feared and reviled by most, as it is here.

Zster comments on Aug 2, 2019:
In a general sense, relationship is not a prerequisite for sex. However, for certain individuals, it very much IS. If the question was directed toward me, personally, a close relationship is needed before I consider getting physical. Conversely, physical attraction is needed up front for me to feel romantic toward someone.

How did you deal with the empty nest syndrome?
Zster comments on Jul 28, 2019:
My nest was empty for three months, then my daughter came home after a hospitalization got her thrown out of school. My youngest came home for the summer, so we were all together until just last week. Youngest moved to a nearby apartment and eldest moves into one in September, four hours away. My first stint on my own hurt for a couple weeks, but I got busy getting my house the way I want it. This time around, I also have a few trips planned. I've been widowed over a decade, so what I make of this is solely on me. Want to be empty nest buddies while we adjust?
Grapefruit, love it, hate it, red/pink/white, raw or baked... never had it?
Zster comments on Jul 28, 2019:
Fave way, halved w sections cut free w/ a knife, top w a little table sugar and eat. I drink a lot of grapefruit, too. Juicing 3-4 whole grapefruits with two sweet apples. So far, this has turned out just sweet enough every time.

Not sure how I like the way most bands are touring these days.
Zster comments on Jul 21, 2019:
Not hearing from my favorite band for longer than a few songs would frustrate me. The concerts (a headliner with a warmup or two) that I've seen recently have been long enough for the artists to "play them all".
When did I start to hate summer?
Zster comments on Jul 21, 2019:
I love summer, except for the biting mosquitos. I live in the deep southern US, but grew up in the north. I personally find excessive air-conditioning to be problematic. With rooms reasonably cool, but not freezing, the outside feels warm, but not stifling to me. If I expose myself to the heat gradually more and more, I can live in it and function quite well (camping trips, weeks of lots of garden work, etc). Of course, that could all change if my health does.

Zster comments on Jul 18, 2019:
Had the front suspension spring break in half on my car when I was in my early twenties. The repair exceeded my entire bank balance, so the repair shop opened a credit card to charge it to. 75% of the cost was the labor to rebuild the front end of the car. I told them to fix all of whatever needed it while apart. The day I picked the car up, there was a clicking noise in the front end when moving. The repair guys only fixed the spring, not the CV joint or boot. It would cost me double to have the front disassembled and reassembled again. I was visibly upset about it. The owner of the shop came over to me, took my hand in his and, while patting my hand, said "don't worry about it sweetie, your HUSBAND can explain it to you." My husband was raised with privelege. He NEVER touched a car in his life except to drive it. I'd worked on tractors and trucks to finance college. I was pissed! It took me forever to pay that $1000+ bill!

Why would, or wouldn't, you date a believer?
Zster comments on Jul 15, 2019:
That depends on the ultimate goal: casual date for companionship/fun or serious relationship with hope for a long term committment? As long as we can respectively agree to disagree, not trying to convert/deconvert the other, I don't see that as a reason not to enjoy a show or dinner together. OTOH, a deeper committment would require authenticity, mutual respect, and attraction. Deluded thinking is not something I have any respect for.

Zster comments on Jul 14, 2019:
For me, it's been much more a point of what I DON'T do on Sunday: rush around doing the bidding of ANYONE (after jumping through endless hoops for bosses, teachers, etc). Sunday is one day of the week where I'll rest, rising leisurely, taking time to prepare what I actually WANT to eat, play with my pets, converse with my children, basically enjoying a day MY way. (which can involve activities, get togethers and whatnot).
Flavored Coffee?

I'm so curious, what stages did you all go through to get to where you are at?
Zster comments on Jul 6, 2019:
Belief in Bible as illustrative myth: Raised in Disciples of Christ church. No literalism. Jesus as a love message. Fairly sheltered faith with almost zero ugliness. Golden Rule christianity. I generally believed in a non participative but benevolent god. Never believed in a devil if god was omnipotent. Baptized into my childhood church at age 12, along with an entire class of other 12 YO. (ages 5-18) The big turn off, "Real church/christianity": From college years forward, witnessed "christians" as haters, bullies, bigots - agst gays, atheists, other christians, everyone. Understanding religion to be a human construct, seeing it weaponized to justify any hateful/selfish belief, turned me off to church. Considered this a human failing. Still loosely held on to a personal god concept, though questioned how such a deity could allow such abuses. Took our kids to a few churches to teach them about religion, not indoctrinating them. Husband and daughter got baptized. Husband died of cancer in 2006. Attended unprogrammed (no sermons or dictated belief) Quaker meeting for three years. (ages 18-44) Books grant me permission to question ALL of it: My dad, who was very well read in world religions and secularism, gifted me with books by John Spong and Neal Walsh. ("A New Christianity for a New World" and "A Friendship with God"). These books seemed to grant me permission to critically evaluate religion, including mine, and to consider discarding religion altogether. Ultimately brought me to where I am now: non-religious, nontheistic. I don't believe in a god being, figuring "god" is how many humans explain what they do not know. (ages 44-46) My "fuck religion" phase: early in my no-longer-believing years, I read and discussed a lot, shooting as many holes in religion, and especially christianity as I could. I was pretty angry at the many wrongs religion has dished out and felt a need to rail about it. I shudder to think how anger-constipated I might have been had I actually experienced a more authoritative/abusive brand of christianity personally. (ages 47-52) Present: I tired of being angry and of rehashing the same anti-religious arguments over and over. I understand the need to vent such sentiment, especially for the newly disbelieving. I personally want to move past that and enjoy a more peaceful and satisfying life as a humanist, with reverence for all life and the environment.

Zster comments on Jul 6, 2019:
I've spent a lot of time around teens and twenty-somethings and honestly don't hear those overused much at all. I wonder how regional or demographic it is (recalling Valley-speak of the 1980s). In these parts, I hear the dreaded "whatever" more than anything, and not nauseatingly often at that, thank goodness. I hear a lot more snippets reflecting the latest internet craze, which are full on while hot and then replaced completely in fairly short order. The pace of "in or out" is crazy quick and tough to keep up with.
Good morning! Chuck and I are going to the ELO concert tomorrow in Tampa.

Rock (esp Classic and Hard), New Wave, Alternative Rock, 70s Funk, Indie Folk, Cinematic, Prog rock, Folk (traditional and modern Indie), Celtic, World music, Swing (classic and modern electric), 50s and 60s rock, Blues rock, 90s grunge and metal, and some Country. Not much into rap or pop, esp pop since the late 70s. Enjoy the ELO concert!! Sure wish I was going to hear them! They were my number 1 around the time of their New World Tecord and Out of the Blue albums. Never have heard them live.

Hello my fellow creepy crawlie enthusiasts! Any snake owners and herpers here?
Zster comments on Jul 4, 2019:
Yep! I am the herp mom of five snakes, with many other snakes, lizards, and frogs just outside my front door (a perk of living in the southeastern US). I tip my hat to your being able to breed. I did it once, but found homing the babies to be very stressful. Here's a peek at Luna (long striped Cali King), Siri (Mex Black King named "Sirius Black"), Coolie (Bull), and Seven (one of Luna's babies):
Here'd Pixie, playing with her 'ball of food' this morning...and enjoying the food.
Zster comments on Jul 4, 2019:
I give my four cats diet-appropriate "treats" that way. Since each cat is on a particular prescribed diet, I have to use four distinctly different balls and keep a real close eye on them to assure no mix ups. It's a fiasco once I put the loaded spheres down! Great entertainment! (a lot like soccer).
Good morning! What are you all up to today?
Zster comments on Jul 4, 2019:
Cooking and eating! Both kids are home this summer, so we'll make this one count! It's fresh blueberry season, so pancakes will be for breakfast and pies this afternoon. Burgers, corn on the cob, and watermelon are on the dinner menu. We've not had rain in quite awhile, so fire crackers wont be part of the plan, this round.

Good morning! Coffee or tea?

I am REALLY into both, preferring a good dark roast espresso or French pressed cafe in the morning with a leisurely cup of herbal or white tea blend in the afternoon. A golden (tumeric) milk tea at night is also delightful.
I think I found this site by accident. How did most of you find out about it and does it work?
Zster comments on Jul 2, 2019:
First found Ag via an ad on FaceBook when it first launched. Not sure what you mean by "work". It's a social site that is mostly free of religious BS. In that sense, it works. As to therefore also being a site of openmindedness, intelligence, and tolerance... not so much. Those seem to be decreasing as membership increases.
Have you ever changed your opinion about an important issue because of a better argument ?

Son wants a snake.
Zster comments on Jun 29, 2019:
If your son is a minor, he might not be allowed to take his pet snake with him to a college dorm or to an apartment. A well cared for snake can live for twenty or more years, so one really has to look at meeting its needs now and in the future.

Zster comments on Jun 29, 2019:
Hmm... strangely, I just discovered that the Ball canning jar holding my grandmother's corn cob holders that I inherited was made in 1915. I still use it to store her (now my) cob holders. I also have an EAPG glass pitcher of hers made in 1867, but I do not use it (and neither did she, but I cannot confirm that her mother or grandmother didn't).

What has been your motivation(s) to advance and succeed in your current career?
Zster comments on Jun 23, 2019:
My career was mostly demotivating, moreso as time went along. My position got eliminated post merger, 5 months before planned retirement. In retirement, I might want to keep SOME income trickling in for fun spending. However, it wont be tied to working FOR someone or having anyone working for me, flexible hours where I call the shots, according to my needs and customer's desires.

How and when did you lose your religion?
Zster comments on Jun 17, 2019:
I grew up liberal christian, taught that the bible is myth and that, like fables, there are lessons within. Upon departing for college, I was exposed to christian hatred and bigotry for the first time. I have never cared to be associated with those who use religion to justify their prejudices. I’ve been on my own since. It blows my mind that others do not see religion for what it is, a social weapon of man.
How closely tied are pride and confidence, in your opinion?
Zster comments on Jun 17, 2019:
Often disconnected. I honestly care very little about what others think of me, which many think translates as confidence. On the other hand, my self esteem is ok, but I am not boastful or proud in much of any way.

Life Lessons Learned.
Zster comments on Jun 3, 2019:
1. No one can honestly please everyone. 2. Be your authentic self. This helps one to efficiently figure out who dislikes the real self so that time wasted on such persons can be minimalized. 3. Liars often win. If you choose a truthful path, expect to sometimes (often?) lose to those who don't. People tend to believe what they most want to, not necessarily what's true.
This is how internet, cable TV and phone companies treat their customers.

Good morning! Today's question: What is the greatest accomplishment of your life?
Zster comments on May 11, 2019:
Getting my kids raised by mysrlf. Had not planned on any children or living without my late husband but... we did it! (Making it all the way through school AND working for 20+ years in that field come a close-ish second.)
I was forced into retirement at age 55 due to serious injuries from a car accident, which was not my...

Did the late diagnosis rectify things? Is your premature retirement at all enjoyable now?

Shit! Lee's movies are FOR adults, (and older kids who can enjoy them without being messed up by the often dark plots). I am guessing that Bill has not had any quality playtime in his life. He should try it! If not, no biggie, but... if the rest of us still enjoy goofing around, while meeting our responsibilities, what's that to him? LOVED the comments to the article, BTW. I've always wondered why it was considered "proper" to sacrifice so much of our life to the fattening of corporations and their execs, while starving ourselves and our families of quality living time. I am almost 55. I did my corporate time and made just enough to enjoy life with my loved ones. I am playing nearly full time now and loving it! I wont be living a rich lifestyle, but there are worse things.
Would you be a slide or stairs person?

On average, how many text messages do you send in a day?
Zster comments on May 8, 2019:

Wow! There are actually a few politicians left who are not motivated by greed and self interest? Amazing. That took courage!
I am planning a 5 day road trip from my home state of Maryland.
Zster comments on May 4, 2019:
The Fed and state highways in Georgia are nicely paved and well maintained. You really can't go wrong on any if you choose the ones away ftom the major metro areas. I highly recommend taking 441/23 out of the Smokeys, sticking to 441 through Dillard, GA to Commerce/Banks Crossing. There are several towns along that route for stops. Athens and Savannah are terrific day trip or over night spots, esp if one wants to avoid Atlanta and Macon. I know of a nearly nonstop road route between the two, if interested.
Well looky here

Yeah, because only the eco-activist kids are the ones that celebrate spring break drunk on the beach... 🙄
I had a visitor today. Isn't he a beauty?

Black rat snake. A good type to have if you'd prefer to see fewer rodents around.
