Interested in science, philosophy, literature, also, movies, comedians & YouTube atheist sites. I'm young at heart & mind, tho not as much in body anymore (I'm fifty-thirteen!). I love music, mostly rock, jazz & blues tho my tastes are eclectic. Please get in touch if you would like to learn more.
I've gone to funerals, lately, one consequence of getting older. I will also go to weddings, tho if religious will try to limit myself to just the reception. I avoid all other religious ceremonies if at all possible, Tho I may visit the family, if I'm close, after the ceremony. All the people that would feel close enough to invite me in the first place know I'm an atheist & know I won't support the "rite", tho I support them as friends. I try to look at most "laymen" as potential atheists so don't figure being confrontational just for the sake of confrontation advances 'the cause'. I have an "Atheist Atom" tattoo on my right forearm & wear atheist or science themed t-shirts often (will be showing my collection soon!), so have never hidden my position, but I am also just a human trying to make his way in this screwed up world, I won't fault those that try to find solace, as flimsy as I may think that is!
Hi everyone out there I am a liberal political junkie and a trivia buff. I'm all inclusive and like the people in my life to be open-minded.. I do not believe in organized religion.. I believe diversity makes us stronger. Very concerned about the social and political environment of this administration. My friends would describe me as independent, spontaneous, sexual, adventurous and spicy. I will travel and/or relocate for happiness. I am looking for a non-tobacco smoking man who wants a healthy, long-term emotional, intellectual and sexual relationship, I love music-live and recorded, enjoy travel and outdoor activities such as motorcycling, sailing, kayaking, hiking,and horseback riding. My age range for dating is wide 45-65.. My profile pic is March 23, 2018. Feel free to message me.. Thanks and take care.
I answer intelligent questions posed by intelligent people
Raised Nazarene, quickly realized what I was taught made no sense. Lover of a good book,the outdoors and blues,bluegrass,sad Irish songs and all things fiddle. ISO good conversation and good company.
It would be nice if the US stopped doing evil things. What do we need to do to stop this? Because whatever it is, I'm in.
53 yo woman in NE Connecticut. Looking for friends and community.
I've lived a hard life, but it's made me who I am today. I was once a believer but after actually reading the book I learned it's all bullshit. No one told me what it says... it's written in plain words. I've had women literally run from me when I tell them I don't believe in God. Been to prison 3 times for possession of cannabis. I tend to want to possess too much. (I don't like to run out of most things I enjoy). That is where I did most of the research. I'm an outdoor kind of person that plans to go live off the grid in the near future... maybe in a year. I go on 3 day canoe trips a couple times a year down the Brazos river 10 to 20 miles depending on who I'm with. Thinking about doing 40 miles this year and take a week to do it. I don't anger easily. Not my nature. But I will kick some ass when it's needed. Never hurt women... I adore women. Most of my friends are women.
Don't piss into the wind
For a long time I used to go to bed early. Sometimes, when I had put out my candle, my eyes would close so quickly that I had not even time to say “I’m going to sleep.” And half an hour later the thought that it was time to go to sleep would awaken me; I would try to put away the book which, I imagined, was still in my hands, and to blow out the light; I had been thinking all the time, while I was asleep, of what I had just been reading, but my thoughts had run into a channel of their own, until I myself seemed actually to have become the subject of my book: a church, a quartet, the rivalry between François I and Charles V. This impression would persist for some moments after I was awake; it did not disturb my mind, but it lay like scales upon my eyes and prevented them from registering the fact that the candle was no longer burning. Then it would begin to seem unintelligible, as the thoughts of a former existence must be to a reincarnate spirit; the subject of my book would separate itself from me, leaving me free to choose whether I would form part of it or no; and at the same time my sight would return and I would be astonished to find myself in a state of darkness, pleasant and restful enough for the eyes, and even more, perhaps, for my mind, to which it appeared incomprehensible, without a cause, a matter dark indeed.... Wait, that was Proust. I hate filling these out. Divorced since 2009. Two kids. My friends all think I'm funny (but then they would, wouldn't they?). Find me at g:31. I spend most of my time there. Here's a video of me playing piano and singing with my daughter. ://youtu.be/q1crJ7KdzPw
I am still evolving. I love good conversation, and am comfortable with silence. I'm not average, I definitely do things my way, and I'm comfortable with that. If you prefer "normal", it's not quite here. I am an introvert but I need connections with people. I love to travel and visit new places and I love my home. I have lived all over the US and overseas, moved 23 times. However, I don't intend to ever move from Omaha. As long as the grandchildren are nearby, I'm here. My kids are self supporting adults that live nearby, there are 2 grandchildren so far, 5 grandcats and a granddog. Grandchildren are pretty amazing. I live with cats. The cats are people. Small, loving, fur covered people who endlessly amuse me. (see pictures) I am a crafter and creative person. I knit, crochet, sew, quilt, make lip balms and soaps, and more. I like estate sales, I enjoy finding things that can be re-purposed and possibly sold elsewhere. I love to read, I usually have at least one book on my nightstand, and usually one or two overdue at the library. I have a garden, tomatoes fresh off the vine taste like sunshine. If you have never tasted that, you've been deprived. I try to eat less meat and sugars, and more veggies. The garden helps. However, I did grow up in Nebraska and live here again and sometimes.... sometimes it has to be steak. I carry a pocket knife most of the time. It is small and pink. It saves wear and tear on my nails - see creativity and gardening. I also have fake nails, they make me happy. If you've read my postings you may have figured out I'm pretty liberal. I am an encourager, a advocate for other women, for children, for the oppressed and the struggling, and for everyone in my life. I am very self sufficient, however something just can't be done alone. I have a drill and I know how to use it. In fact I have two drills. I don't smoke cigarettes, and don't like to be around them. I don't care for sports, professional or college. GBR is not often heard in my house, if you don't know what that is that is a good thing. NASCAR is not considered at all, ever. I turned the cable off in 2015. I stream if/when I watch TV. I'm plump, my curves have curves. I've had more and I've had fewer. I drive a Toyota Rav4 that is 11 years old. It has a sun roof and it is paid for. I plan to drive it til my kids take the keys away from my cold dead hands. I'd like to find a partner for the rest of the journey. Life can be a cold, journey, sharing makes the load lighter and warmer.
about 12 years ago I made canvas shopping bags. I use them most shopping trips. 8 years ago I made personal wipes. I quit using toilet paper. I rarely use paper towels, napkins, or plastic bags I use glass for food storage. I make my own soap, toothpaste, deodorant, lip balm. I garden. I use Hydroflasks and almost never use plastic water bottles. I use metal straws. I make and take my own lunch, carry and reuse my own silverware, and usually cook from scratch and mostly vegetarian. I recycle paper and plastic at home, and take glass recycling to Target. I donate my unused stuff to a variety of resale or reuse places. I compost, and I have a worm box in my pantry. I make my own extracts and cleaning solvents. There are lemon peels soaking in vinegar in my pantry now. I'm not sure how long they've been there. And I'm gradually replacing all the light bulbs with LEDs.
THe jury is out on god for me. Religion and trying to understand all this is not a big issue for me. I like to talk about other things:animals, art especially fiber arts, gardening nature in general. I like to work outside and have built some off grid buildings. I take pictures of what I see in day to day life I am not interested in trump except how soon he will leave office. I have fired plenty of guns and have no interest in them.
I was doing some with online videos. not a mention of anything except stretch, but be gentle etc
I have been on this site since November 2017, primarily for dating. I have texted, messaged, and talked to several people. I've met a few. I have developed good friendships but no romances. I figure those good friendships (male and female) are worth the time I have spent here but… I am still looking for a long term monogamous relationship. What are you looking for? Atheism has only been officially part of my life for less than a year. However, I have been moving away from religion for about 8 years, maybe more. I identify closest to being a Humanist but still learning and finding my way. This site and the many intelligent people I have come across have helped me tremendously in finding my path. Optimistic, positive, easily excitable and passionate describe me fairly well. Easy to talk to. I feel like a kid much of the time - curious, playful, open and brutally honest. Don't ask if you don't want my honest opinion. ;-) I love to flirt and have a good sense of humor. Laughing is one of my favorite things. I strive to be earth-friendly in what I eat, buy, and use. Not a vegetarian but pretty close. Love to learn and have an interest in a wide range of topics. Open to new experiences. My motto: Laughter is the best medicine.
Just a girl in the world
Just testing the water. Many people equate Atheist with devil worshiper. I've had to explain I don't believe in that either, lol. I'm hoping to meet a genuine, honest man. I look forward to hearing from you.
I'll be researching this some more!
I got on this site because it was a place to meet people that don't want religion in their life. So many have been duped by the brainwashing techniques of religion. So many wars are going on in the name of someone's religion. It has caused families to split, relationships to end, communities to be divided, nations to fight, it's pathetic and sad. If you are a dumpster supporter, don't bother me with your nonsense. Now that is established, some fun facts about me. I love my rock music, mostly 80's metal hair bands. Like horror movies, car shows, & love to camp. I have a group on here called sun/moon/stars if your interested in the outdoors and camping. Can't pass up an auction or good yard sale. A weird fact is that I can't stand the smell of coffee or drink it. Drama free & plan to keep it that way. Also, I am a gun owner but not a conservative & a Harley owner. I come down the road of hard knocks as they say but it has made me strong & kept me humble. I'm a bit off the beaten track. If you have a twisted, sick sense of humor, like an Italian woman who speaks her mind and is independent and ok with that, pop me a message. I don't bite.. hard. :)
Discourse interests me, which is why I'm drawn to the comment section on blogs and forums. A wealth of information can be found there. I've been a blogger for close to a decade and have predominately written about the impact authoritarian religion has on the brain and society and the neuropsychological techniques used in religious indoctrination. I'm into road trips, debate, reading, meaningful conversations, advocacy, writing, producing info videos, and nurturing close friendships (to name a few). Music is attached to my hip. I have a creative edge and an eye for design. Making my spaces feel resort-like curbs the need to get away to decompress (although I enjoy a change of scenery from time to time). Reading occupies a lot of my time. Learning is a constant companion. Curiosity is in my blood. My career has been diverse but entrepreneurship has been the most rewarding. This is a great community. Thanks for popping in.
What? I never filled this out? I'm laid back to a fault. I'm not that motivated but manage to work and spend a lot of time with my young children. I'm a proud liberal in a populist sense. I have an aversion to elitism, but even more so to social and economic injustices. That being said, I probably appear to be a redneck from a distance. I like fishing, watching sports, and when I drink alcohol it is beer. I live in a crappy little apartment and that's how I like it. The older I get the more I prefer my own company to almost everyone I know. I talk to people all day long and do enjoy it in that capacity. I believe I am very level headed in a low key way. Mindfulness has helped me understand myself better over the years. Hmmmm...Is this the kind of stuff I'm suppose to be putting on this bio?
I'm not sure why I'm here, I'll figure it out :-) On the dating side I'm looking for a lady with similar interests for friendship to start, leading to more if things 'click'. I prefer to date someone local to the Dallas area, I'm not into the long-distance thing. Travel and photography are my main hobbies/interests, although I do have a lot of other varied interests/hobbies. My musical tastes run from classic to alternative/modern rock and jazz (not much into country or rap). I enjoy all types of cuisine, festivals, fairs, live music, learning about different cultures, learning new things, and lots more... I do have two very old cats so you have to at least be able to tolerate kitties. I'd love to hear from you if you're local and think anything sounds interesting. Being a cat person or into photography is a big plus BTW! (Gezz I hate writing those profiles! ;-) )
Hopefully no one will start trying to feed him and everyone will be able to coexist...
Updated bio. Dating site woes. Been there, done that. Got the t-shirt. I am hoping to find a few like minded friends for companionship. Hikes in the area, dinners out, coffee chats. Recently new to the area that I know pretty well.. I have been around the block a few times, but always on the same quart of oil. I wonder if we have all been sold a story that love is just around the corner, or is just the right person we just haven't met thus far. I guess I am questioning many things. But I still want to find love, just want it to be natural and organic. Me: natural, intelligent, witty, very single, finding my place in life. I enjoy music, hiking, kayaking, gardens, dogs AND cats, good wine and food.
easy going artist and animal lover. always into animals and nature. i try to be honest and treat people how they treat me. ive tried many things like drugs, drink and doing crazy stuff in my past. lucky to be here. i consider myself inteligent and real. i hate fake, lies, bullies and i question everything. sometimes i overthink. im dyslexic and quite sarcastic. i have never broken my own moral code even in drunken drug fuelled stupers. ive done stupid things and broken the law but never was into fighting or hurting poor people or nice people. some people are so messed up with such massivly different beliefs i find it hard to belive we are actually the same animal. humans do not surprise me anymore which is scary really. i often look to nature for answers as i feel we as humans have lost touch on many levels. most humans are not nice and care only for themselves above and beond self preservation. i dont care what people think of me. i dont suffer fools gladly and i say what i mean and mean what i say. i love a good chat and a good laugh or good sex . i am outspoken and some say excentric where i think i just like being who i want to be without being pigeon holed. i dont get star struck and im not a sheep. theres a few famous people i really admire and they are david attenborough, george carlin ,ceser milan, barry sheen and bruce lee threw my own choice not theres.i try to live rather than egsist and im a bit of a loner. humans cant handle the truth even if they ask for it. my faverite animal is the elephant followed closely by many more. my faverite colour is black. i like what i like and dont like what i dont like. im also dyslexic .
Do not message me. I despise religions, conspiracy theories, homeopathy, superstitions, misogynists, and anything that is scientifically unprovable. I adore coffee, forensic anthropology, archaeology, hikes, jelly beans, intelligent conversations, baby giggles, nature, and long walks off of short piers. I am only interested in community.
Agnostic. American. English. Married. Retired. Veteran. Patriot. Ex-pilot. Traveler. Adult. Philosopher. Teacher. Student.....
Im so sorry that happened. I had nothing to do with that. Its a cultural thing amongst do gooders that supposedly mean well. Some may have benefited from it .... others did not. Thats sad.
Thought it time to change my profile, took some out, but didn't add anything. I am happy, love life to the max, animal and nature lover, have an amazing relationship with my adult offspring. I am not at all interested in overseas travel, sport, television, pubs, clubs, fast cars,motorbikes, corporate ladders or chasing the dollar. I have lived a somewhat alternative/self sufficient lifestyle, even in my corporate years resulting in a situation where I want for very little, without having very much. I am most definitely a "red pill" person and only suited to others as my way of life is too challenging to those who can't think for themselves. Being out in nature and experiencing its energy, whether in the surf, on the water or in the bush. Not all that interested in the man made world, I don't watch TV, though I read a lot and do enjoy exceptionally good movies. Mostly single for the past 24 years whilst I raised my own children plus a few others.
Work out how to overcome any impact you have, then pass that learning on to others.
Hi, 46 Year old born in Qubec, Montreal, Westmount. My family moved to The United States when i was 16 years old. I have a Masters in Biology and curretly work in Cancer Research. I was raised and spent most of my life as a . First and later baptist. I am a new Agnostic as of a year. I decided to convert because i have no desire to worship a man made that i have no proof of existence other than words written by man. I do believe there is an entity or perhaps just the universe its self but i no er believe in . I feel sad when i realize it took me 40 plus years of my life to figure out how important decision making can affect the course of my life. I am in control of my destiny and i will no er give credit to a or any other imaginary figures of religion.
If we could change our mentality to stop passing judgement on people simply because they are different, this could be a tolerant world.
Once I was lost, but now usually around. I was born poor, naked, and wet, and it's just gotten worse ever since. I do not presume to know much about what will happen next, but there is a good probability it will involve a sandwich or something.
I hate filling in these things. I'm 50 years old. I've seen, done and been a hundred different things, places and some of them made me better, some worse but I'm the only me I'll ever be. I'm here for the connections, be it friends or something else. Some days I'm fun and funny. Some days I'm too in my head and can be a royal pain in the ass. Some days I want to go everywhere and do everything. Some days I just want to hide in my house with a book and be left alone. I was once skinny, cute and vibrant. Now I'm over 50, chubby, shabby around the edges and sometimes a little dull. Honest always as you can see above. Also an avid/rabid soccer/football fan.
I get this a lot. "If you don't believe in god then what do you believe in?" I have learned to respond, "I have opinions on millions of things but I don't have blind "belief/faith" in anything."
