The Big Question: Death

secular parenting humanist homeschool blog raising atheist skeptical freethinking humanist parenting atheist parenting ! Have you had a death in the family lately? If so, my sincerest sympathy. I lost my dad a few years ago and it is very difficult; there are no simple words to comfort you. Many of the people who read this blog or who read my writing in other places have asked me to write about death. Talking to children about death is one of those things that makes us feel all bunged up and…

Carnival of Atheist Parenting: CAP

A few years ago, in 2014, I tried to start a blog carnival for atheist parents and atheist parenting blogs. Although there were many, many freethinking parents who were extremely interested in the idea, the carnival didn't fly because there were not alot of openly-atheist or secular parenting blogs being written. I have been getting some evidence that there is interest in such a thing again. I am going to send this out into the internet world and, if I get enough interested people commenting…

For Someone Who Doesn't Believe in God, You Sure Talk about Him Alot

homeschool atheist blog, secular homeschool, raising freethinkers LOL...yes, I've heard this one before. The first time I heard it I thought I would spit out my coke. It was on Facebook a couple of years ago and I was still FB friends with a coworker of my husband at that point. I can't remember exactly what I had written, but it was fairly innocuous. I'm not exactly in your face with this stuff. She came back with the comment, For someone who doesn't believe in god, you sure talk about him…

My Own Mind: Atheist Parenting: Sex and God and Shame: The church insists that sex is God's gift to humankind. Yet few organizations are more clumsy or more repressive on issues of sexuality than the church.

Sex and God and Shame

The church insists that sex is God's gift to humankind. Yet few organizations are more clumsy or more repressive on issues of sexuality than the church. I was thinking about how I was raised. Not just how I was raised but how many young women in my age group and before were raised... For us, sex was the taboo subject. It was a subject that everyone wanted to have a conversation on, NEEDED to have a conversation on...but few actually did. Who would we talk to? I have a uniquely informed…

And because I have beloved family and friends who are believers and I feel no need…

If My Child Became a Believer

If My Child Became a Believer

One of the questions that first-generation atheist parents ask ourselves (and each other) quite a bit is this: What if my child became a believer? Yeah, we like to torture ourselves. 😄 So many of us have come so far from the mythologies of our upbringing, yet we recall the strength of the methodical brainwashing of the religions of our childhoods. In the early years of parenting my children, the sheer thought of allowing my children to be in the presence of any of that brainwashing treacle…

My Own Mind blog: Rorschach Revelations

Rorschach Revelations

The other day I was reading stuff on social media when I ran across a story of some minister dude just blazing "the gays". This minister was shouting stuff about the book Leviticus from the Old Testament of the Christian holy book while standing on the side of his little cardboard pulpit while other dudes in the folding chair pews were shouting hostile "AMENs" and stuff. I just scratched my head. Not only do I not understand the vehemence of their derision (though I think I do... 😠...and…

The Secular Therapist Project -

The Secular Therapist Project - #400

If you are a freethinker, a skeptic, an atheist, an agnostic looking for either a therapist, mental health services, or a recovery program for yourself, have you been thoroughly discouraged by the absence of similarly-minded people in these roles? Back in the day, when I was in therapy hot and heavy, I was ALWAYS discouraged and annoyed that therapists were almost all exclusively Christian or almost all unable to keep their religion out of the therapeutic session. With the caveat that I was…

Let Them Eat Voice

WHY, Karen? Why do you focus so much of your blog on atheism? Is it really so important to you? You have a fixation, I think. What is your fascination with GOD? If you don't believe in God then why are you so fixated on Him? It's all your problem, Karen! Well, guess what, People, I focus so much of my blog on atheism because its antithesis is EVERYWHERE. I can't walk out of my house without seeing the presence of religion everywhere in this culture. I walk along shaking my head at the…

You Seem to Hang Out Only with People Who Think Like You Do

I have a friend who accuses me of this. That I hangout only with people who think as I do, or that I only expose the kids to other atheist, or people who think as we do... And I have to laugh! What must happen is that I mention being in a group of all atheists or freethinking people whenever we are, somehow, in a group where atheists are in the majority. It's absolutely noteworthy to mention it because it's rare. Exceedingly rare. And nice. The thing is that this claim (or is it an…

Atheism and the Sacred: A Useful Concept?

Atheism and the Sacred: A Useful Concept?

atheist blog What is sacred? In the strictest definition of the word, or at least according to dictionary.com, sacred's primary definitions include: devoted or dedicated to a deity or to some religious purpose; consecrated, entitled to veneration or religious respect by association with divinity or divine things, holy. In that sense of the word, there is absolutely nothing sacred on the planet. However, in the secondary definitions of the word sacred, using the same dictionary means…

Atheist Pride Day and Week

Atheist Pride Day and Week

My Religion is Kindness In past years I have noticed on Facebook events called National Ask an Atheist Day, Atheist Pride Day, Atheist Day, and Atheist Week. I decided to check out the 2019 dates for these events and I was met with nothing but confusion because, whoever creates these days, there are a number of conflicting dates. To solve this one, I've decided to simply make the entire year of 2019 the Year of Atheist Pride! 😅 Join me if you like! I made the clip art above for Atheist Day…
