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.
Well, obviously not all of us!
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've met Dan, Our_existance here. We have really connected with each other emotionally, socially and sexually and begun a committed monogamous relationship. .We are living together in Nassau, New York, a suburb of the State Capital of Albany. I am the owner and moderator of 5 groups -Cancer Survivors, Jewish By Culture, Me Too-Women's Group, Leftists and Single/Mingle/Chat Group. I also participate in 20 other groups and moderate Kindling. . I also run the Sunday Trivia Night Contests as well. I love music-live and recorded, enjoy travel and outdoor activities such as motorcycling, sailing, kayaking, hiking,and horseback riding.. Thanks and take care.
I went through list and came up with 21 questions-It would be much easier if we could check off the page. Any way to print it out and let us respond that way-so many categories to consider.?
Moved to Grants Pass from Arizona (September 2017) I have been a widow for over13 years now, it's about time to go have some fun. I have 2 grown children, 1 granddaughter and now I have a great grandson. I love going on road trips and having long walks exploring nature and a glass of wine with dinner (sometimes). I'm a vegetarian and love gardening, canning and cooking what I grow there is nothing better. I love all of Nature has to offer and love being outside with it. I'm very health conscious and prefer cooking with organic foods. I like to watch things on Netflix from time to time. I love the Arts, live music, art galleries and theater. I am not into religion , politics or motorcycles, enough said. Just want to hangout and enjoy life.
My son's cat did not like her cat tree until he put it in front of a window now she loves it.
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. I have a BS in animal health management and work on a dairy.
But without the male she gets no seed
Liberal. DIYer. Reader. Crafter. Gardener. Traveler. Always have projects, but take time for loved ones and friends. Kinda, sorta retired. Don't know how long that will last, but for the moment we will see how it goes. Cat Mom. I like dogs, and hope to have one again one day. Cats are my fur kids. I hope I am always kind (heavy traffic doesn't count... well, shouldn't) I have a good sense of humor and sense of what matters. I am very protective of those I care for. Have lived all over the US and overseas as well, 23 moves in my life. After 19 moves I ended up 50 miles from where I was born, I've lived in Omaha for 13 years. Mostly vegetarian but not militant about it or perfect. 420 friendly. Drinks sometimes. Chocoholic. They told me when I had a baby that my heart would be walking outside of my body, and that was pretty much true. Then I became a grandmother, and I learned that love had more depths than I ever dreamed. I don't plan to ever move away from the grandbabies. All my kids are within 25 miles. Not interested in long distance. I am looking for a long term relationship, the last great love of my life.
I hate living in Jesusland. But unless I can persuade all the kids to move.... I just don't see that happening.
54 yo woman in NE Connecticut. Looking for friends and community. I live with three very fluffy cats who I love dearly - and I'm ok with being called "Cat lady". (See photos). I've been disabled since 2002. I'm just a little slowed down physically and have some chronic pain issues. But most days I enjoy my life. Happily religion free since around age 18 when I could choose not to go to church. Realized I was an atheist when my sister in law said "Well maybe your nephew should talk to you - because you're an atheist too". Up until then I identified as Agnostic - but realized I might be a step further along. (Yes that really depends on your definitions). Worked in Mental Health for a Decade - was a member of the first Mobile Crisis Unit in Massachusetts. Wish more places were still doing this - it was a well thought out program. Also worked in a news office. Yup they hired me for my Psych degree. (Honest!). It was a satellite office that housed news and sales and those two departments are like oil and water. I love reading, music and movies. Check out some of my groups if you want to know more about me. Insomniacs/Movie Viewing Group and Pet Pictures and Discussion. I might be famous for my Goodnight Kitties in Insomniacs. ;-)
Is Bug an Abyssinian? Adorable kitty!
Fan of the overlooked, despised and forgotten. Just a possum in love with the world. Some folks are not included in that. For those I say...https://youtu.be/OL7B2z56ziQ
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?
Narcissist just like those who made him up.
I love this site and many of the people here are amazing... smart, humorous, sarcastic... and I've learned much from them. I've made some good friends. 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 opinion. ;-) I love to flirt and have a good sense of humor. Laughing is one of my favorite past times. 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.
Looks good as it is, any longer and it will start looking messy. Having said that... do what YOU want it's your face.
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.
hopefully he will mail the ones i was looking for and I can use the return address
I was born on the planet Krypton, and as a named Kal-El, was sent Earth in a small spaceship by my scientist father Jor-El, moments before Krypton was destroyed in a natural cataclysm. My ship landed in the American countryside, where I was discovered and adopted by Jonathan and Martha Kent, a farming couple. They named me Mater...... 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
Sorry I heard wack....
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. Love my rock music, mostly 80's metal hair bands, horror movies, car shows, the outdoors and camping. 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. Still feel like I am in my 30's and sometimes act like it too. My attitude is don't let things pull you under or it will cover you up with dirt quicker than you can blink an eye. 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. :)
Many people equate Atheist with devil worshiper. I've had to explain I don't believe in that either, lol.
Equal to Hitler
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. Do us both a favor and do not message me if you're spiritual or a believer in any god. Thanks.
Host and moderator of EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY & IN MY OPINION -- come join us. I am a gentleman who knows the meaning of passion and compassion, the difference, and how and when to apply either or both. As a writer, I am an active listener and an adapt conversationalist and appreciate the push-pull of an intelligent exchange. I write while on-line, but feel free to chat, though it may take a few minutes for me respond. I am dyslexic and try to make certain my spelling isn't too tortured, but please take that into consideration. I am here to meet new people, hear new opinions and perhaps, meet someone whose company to enjoy together. I have a rapier wit bordering on sarcasm. I value intelligence, good conversation and traveling with like-minded individuals. If you want to know something -- just ask. I especially appreciate insightful, creative people who express themselves well. It is the friends, acquaintances and lovers throughout our lives that gives the patina to our pallet and infuses meaning and perspective into this mystery we call life and makes the trip ultimately worthwhile. PS: I don't come here to troll or be trolled; leave that on FB. Otherwise, I am pretty open to contact.
I am a liberal semi-retired musician. I love animals, art, music, nature ( I don't camp, having a fondness for indoor plumbing). I paint a little. I enjoy interior design. I have spent most of my life playing music for a living, about 25 years of that on and off the road. I still play 5 or 6 nights a month. Meeting someone on this site would be nice, but it is not the only reason l am on this site.
Sorry, l have grown up and lived around Native Americans and Hispanic Americans all my life. I lived with an Hispanic woman an married a full blooded Apache woman, and have had several friends from both cultures. Never in my 70 years did any of them complain about Holloween. If everything is so wonderful about their culture from the past why do they embrace ours with a vengeance. Everyone holds onto the part they like and ignore the parts that were awful, including white people. We tend to over react to a few whiney people. It is Halloween for dogs sake, lighten the fuck up!
I've been on this site a little while now, and have found many very interesting people and friends. I do not feel like I'm on a mission to tear down people's faith. Being agnostic, I find that a selfish and arrogant way to live. I just want to appreciate and belong to the community I found here. I was born into a very conservative Protestant tradition, which I continued to live with despite my doubts until I my late teens. I do not live contentiously with my family or friends from those days. I do not believe that because someone is religious they're stupid or unworthy of respect. As long as they treat me with respect, I tend to do likewise. My political leanings are very liberal. I like all kinds of food, and most types of music. I think it would be wonderful to meet a special someone to share life with, but my appreciation for the Simplicity of the single life makes me feel that another marriage is unlikely. Of course love, being what it is, has a way of changing things. I have many varied interests. Collecting stuff. i enjoy perusing thrift and antique stores. I work as a carpenter and an artist primariy. 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.
The first thing you should know about me is that I am an almost obsessive reader. I tend to live in my head a lot, though I'm not an introvert. I am self educated, like my father, though I did go to trade school for electronics, which led me into a career in computers. I write poetry, prose, and music. I have been a musician since I was 8, though I only briefly made a living at it. My second marriage lasted almost 35 years, so finding another partner seems very weird to me, and I haven't been on a "date" since 1981. I'm a home made musician and an armchair philosopher. I have one book published, and I have a lot of recorded music, though none of it has ever been released commercially. This is pretty bad, isn't it? Oh well, it'll give you an idea.
For the sake of brevity, I'll just list a few things I'm into. Scenic road trips, civil online debate, advocacy, nutrition and progressive values. Oh, mustn't leave out music. 🎶🖤 I have a creative edge and there are never enough hours in the day when I'm in the flow. I'm a curious autodidact so reading, research, listening to lectures and podcasts are pastime favs. Sporadic binging on Netflix is one of my guilty pleasures. 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 behavioral neuroscience research, the impact religion has on the brain and society, and the neuropsychological techniques used in religious indoctrination. I've been widowed and divorced. I deconverted during my last marriage and that didn't go over so well, hence divorce. Being single has been beneficial and satisfying so I haven't been actively pursuing a relationship. Maybe that will change should connection and compatibility cross my path. Thanks for visiting. ✨ “We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.” ~Robert Fulghum
Woot. Thanks for sharing such uplifting news, Paul. I have no doubt there will be a second date.
Yes, I have a lot of hair. I periodically grow it out and donate it to Locks of Love. I happen to be fortunate enough to still have hair at my age and I have a job that allows it. So, its nice to be able to do something constructive for children with cancer. But, I understand that hair like this is not everyone's ideal look for their mate. Allow me to preface all of this by stating that I would be ecstatic to find the love of my life here. And, I do believe that's possible. But, please know that just because we may find some mutual interests and mutual attraction here, don't let that scare you into thinking that I have any expectations. If we do happen to throw some sparks then... YAY! That's a big plus. I'm old fashioned sometimes but, I'd like to think that it's in a good way. I'm chivalrous but not chauvinistic. I'm the guy who will always walk between you and the traffic on the sidewalk. I still open the car door for you. I help you with your coat. Little things that I think still show respect but are not condescending. I'll probably notice your shoes or your purse. I'm the gayest straight man you'll ever meet. I'm a foodie. There aren't many foods that I won't try... Although Balut might be on the list. I'm 145 pounds of fairly sexy plus 40 pounds of some squishy stuff. I'm not a tall guy. 5'8" Amateur musician... professional human. Music is a big part of my life. Here's a recent video of me playing and singing (This was July, 2017.): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3WW4vJ04bZE&t=38s Top ten reasons to date me: 10: I can fold a fitted sheet. 9: My tongue tastes great. 8: You'll never need to worry about driving illegally in the HOV lane again. 7: I never leave the seat up. 6: I've never been on "America's Most Wanted." 5: I know how to make fire. 4: I think Brad Pitt is hot too. 3: I have an Amazon Prime account. 2: I'm really good at making lists. 1: I'll buy you tacos and touch your butt.
Oh no! That totally sucks! Like you haven't been fed enough bowls of suck this year... 😳
I might say that my life has been very eclectic to this point. I have done a vast amount of things and yet I feel so much like a blind neophyte and yearn to see and do much more. Someday I hope to find a partner in the exploits of love and adventure, at that point I hope both our lives blossom into the unexpected horizons of the world. Until then I will go on with the joys that the day to day bring. https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1WCul55eyL3f555P1h-pMgx5YjPAC3GLVCqYlywCGWwY/edit#slide=id.g12e1185359_0_76
I see your point, but at the same time I am not going to dis somebody just because they dressed in a culture outfit that isn't theirs and neither should anyone else. Give people the freedom to dress as they please, if they are disrespectful that comes down on them and not their costume.
I was born in Germany, and lived there until I was in my 20's. I have 2 adult children and a crazy senior dog. I was never religious and never believed, but looked for some spirituality during a rough time with my ex husband (never found it, but got rid of the husband). I am here for community and friendship, as I am in a loving relationship with someone I met on this site.
Oh so cute! Does he get fluffier in the dryer?
I am currently in a loving relationship and am continuing on Agnostic.com for friendship and community. I am in Instructional Designer working out of a home office in Gainesville Florida.
Ahh. Feels like home again.
