About Me:
I am an 82-year-old curmudgeon; I like the 1500s spelling best and definition:
"An ill-tempered (and frequently old) person full of stubborn ideas or opinions."
I evolved from faith in superstition to behavioral scientist. I am a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, a survivor of breast cancer thanks to the fine diagnostic work and treatment at Spokane's Providence Health & Services and Cancer Care Northwest, which included surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Dreadful stuff, but a wake up to living each and every minute.
Life is meant to remember the past, live in the present and remember a preferred future. One can be good without god! My family demonstrates it.
I bring to my community a worldliness that challenges attitudes and norms of a parochial and insular power structure. I traveled to 32 nations in the Western, Eastern, Northern and Southern Hemispheres interviewing women about their family and work lives, their health care, education, social structure, child and elder care, depression, and anxiety, and family violence. I had to be subtle when seeking information about violence. People do not like to reveal their vulnerabilities.

Do I matter?

Posted on January 9, 2019 at 5:26pm 4 Comments

Do I matter??

No! I don’t matter! The point isn’t to depress you or me. I am not that important.? The central issue is, I don’t matter. It is a delusion to think that I matter, that I am powerful or weak. Denial holds me in delusions.

What does matter? The planet, soils, water, air, & life matters.

I will vanish, unremembered, like the…

What does it take for a weak individual to stop being afraid and think about his or her situation, find ways to stand up, and take action?

What does it take for a weak community to build coalitions of like-minded people and challenge those who dominate??

1. Joan's words:

  • "Welcome, Blue Grey Brain, to Atheist Nexus. I, for one, do not believe there is such a thing as,?"Scientific purpose of the human species"?because that implies there is a designer who planned the existence of Homo sapiens. I see no evidence of any such designer or planner when looking through scientific lenses."


2. My response:

  • Hey Joan. Respectfully, you seem to be responding to a comment I did not make, i.e. the OP does not talk about any deities.
  • You may be confusing the "teleological argument" with "teleonomy". The teleological argument is the popular religious concept, concerning deities and purpose.
  • In contrast, the OP builds on teleonomy, which is an atheistic/scientific way to describe nature in terms of purpose driven language. This is why Richard Dawkins, a militant atheist, supports teleonomy and has contributed to teleonomy.

Thanks, Joan. Part of my "yikes" is realizing how time is passing. I'll be 78 on Dec. 7, and Jeanmarie turns 55 on Dec. 18, plus my daughter becomes 50 on Dec. 23!

I am glad to join Atheist Nexus, thank you! I like these philosophers, but I did not read too much of them - of their writings, a book or two. My best friend (also an atheist) is a philosopher (graduated), he explains me too many things. I become an atheist through biology, in Rio de Janeiro Federal University, after being educated in 2 religions: catholicism and omooloko. I loose faith in 2004 july.

I have companions here. In internet I discovered other atheists in 2008. Personally I met a group of them since 2012, with the RDF bus campaingn. We are friends up to now.

Pleased to meet you Joan, and congrats for your life story.

Joan, ?you sound like your usually sharp witted, ?smiling self. I'm happy about that. I'm adjusting. I've just gone through the worst year of my life but I'm coming out the other side now. We had one long wet winter. It started raining the last week of November and didn't stop ( unless it was to snow) until about three weeks ago. I thought I was going to lose my mind. I rarely left the house. I Didn't??leave the house unless I had to.?

Hi Joan, ?I was just scanning through and saw where you had posted for Carl. So he's still missing ? ?I too hope he's safe and sound.?

And how are you doing dear friend? Well it appears and your garden is lovely. Kathy?
