Pet Peeve: Christians
Most Prized Possession: my brain
Weather conditions where you are: rainy, wet, hot
Comments:
Nice to meet another Christian-hater.

{A Note from Jan: I must protest that I do not think of myself as a Christian-hater so much as a Christianity hater -- and there is a difference -- in that I try to treat people as individuals, no matter how deluded their minds may be, and fight against hristianity as a religion, and not Christians as a class of people. I've been very fond of many Christians in my short life, whereas Christianity as a belief system makes me shudder...}

Comments:
Recently we had new tile floors laid in our house. while the floors were being laid, my husband was here doing some painting. the tile man began to preach Jesus to my husband and putting down my Unitarian-humanist beliefs. when my husband finally "started for him with the paint brush" he decided it was robably time to cease preaching. I grew up Methodist, married a member of the Church of Christ which we attended faithfully for eleven or twelve years. I have read the entire bible numerous times and in several versions. I have studied and thought and would now consider myself an athei t. My husband and I have reached these conclusions after careful thought and study.

Weather conditions where you are: Scottsdale, AZ Sunny - High 80's
Comments:
Dear Jan, I just started through your awesome website, but I wanted to tell you a funny story about evolution and my youngest son. Sam was about 7 years old when he discovered a National Geographic mag with an article on evolution. He became fascinated with it an even took it to school for show and tell. We talked about evolution with him and tried to explain the concept of change over a loooooong period of time. Time is a very difficult thing for children to grasp (if you don't believe me, try taking kids on a long car trip). Anyway, after much discussion about man descending from apes, he turned to me and said, "Do you have any pictures of me when I was a little monkey?" He was so serious - I had to hold back the laughs. He thought he had been born a monkey My husband and I still laugh about it. "From the mouths of babes." Carolyn

I have read your comments on the Jethro Tull ng and followed your website link due to the comment about religious freedom meaning any religion. I enjoyed your website and wish my parents had been as enlightened as your seem to be. It has taken me 11 years past your current age to speak out my freethoughts. Kudos!

I found your page contents to be interesting, even if a little eclectic. I work at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility in Newport News, Virginia. It is a four Gev continuous electron beam facility for pure Physics research.I found your page following the armor links. Just goes to show you that one path may have many surprise twists and unexpected turns. I did find the link to Portsmouth uninteresting. Best Wishes on your career path Monty Lehmann

Pet Peeve: People's inability to communicate clearly, particularly (but not exclusively), in the romantic area.
Most Prized Possession: My books.
Weather conditions where you are: Cloudy.
Comments:
Thank you for posting that grammar primer. I shudder when I see someone write that someone loves they're cat. I twitch when someone writes of a car "I really like it's handling". And I completely wig out if someone comments on "you're annoying habit of correcting people". For a couple of years running the general consensus among my friends as to my most annoying quality was correcting their english in the middle of a conversation. Rock on, Rev. Jan. -Ragnar

Comments:
I appreciated your short piece. Although I hate grammar, it's one of my easy areas. I also hate the heavy use of double negatives. Well, I must run along. There's plenty of work to do and I don't have no time to continue (grin). Russ-

Comments:
I am glad to see someone (I hope that's right and not somebody) that cares about grammar. I'm always worried that I am speaking incorrectly. I hear people ending sentences with (at) all the time. I had to ask some guy that signed my guest book from so Kali, where it was. Now I am worried about what you would think if I make a mistake. So I enjoyed your home page.

Weather conditions where you are: Foggy & Rainy, yuck.
Comments:
Thank you for signing my Guestbook! I had my first communion and made my confirmation. But during that tim, I just couldn't believe in something that could not be proven. Why is the world so bad if god is so good? Just some thoughts. Just as your site is thought provoking and tastefully set up. Loved the evolution stuff. It's what I firmly believe in.

Howdy; I'm a brother of Apple Hill boy Peter Sulski. Just checking out related sites, and the title of this one made me curious. So here I am. I've never called myself an atheist, but am curious about all belief systems. Hee!

Comments:
Nice page. I, too, am an atheistic ULC minister. I don't normally go by "Rev. Tippitt" here, but I might start calling myself that.
Weirdly enough, although I'm an atheist, I'm also darn near campus minister status at my school. I'm sort of the lay minister of a Unitarian Universalist group here...three Wiccans, a few ultraliberal Xtians and a handful of agnostics. Then me, the "ath ist minister."
I like the essays. And I've added your URL to the Freethought section of my Religion & Freethought page.

Keep the (un)faith,
Jason Tippitt

Most Prized Possession: my jeep
Weather conditions where you are: clear-70
Comments:
I am always surprised when I find someone who is both young and rational. You should be proud of that. It is very hard to be an atheist in our society. I was raised a Catholic. However, as soon as I went to college I learned some alternative explanations or just about everything. Sorry to here someone close to you died. Rational people do not lie about things. Glad to see you stand by your values. In May my siamese cat died. She had been with me 15 years. Most of that time we lived alone togeather. My sis er-in-law sent me a note saying that I would meet my cat in heaven some day. This statement caught my attention for it's lack of rational content and christians do not believe that animals go to heaven. I sent her a copy of "No Masters No God's". She said she would read it. I just wanted to say you have a nice Web-site and I enjoyed looking at it.

It is so refreshing for me and my family to be able to log on and read about people with non-beliefs like ours. We live in the mountains of North Carolina and there is just no escape from the religious right here. It's so nice to know that we are not alon !

After reading some of your comments and Opinions I have to say it is refreshing to find a normal, intelligent person who can express herself and commit to her own self in spite of the sea of ignorance that surrounds us. Be Thankful you don't live in the Bible Belt as I do; Evergreen, CO). What a turn on! I love you. Your friend and mine. . . Steve.

Pet Peeve: bad grammar
Most Prized Possession: the patience that remains
Weather conditions where you are: cloudy with a chance of meatballs
Comments:
Hi, I too, adore grammar. I was the best sentence diagrammer to ever hit elementary school. My major grammatical irration is the inability to tell many objects from one object. ie: Will the person typing their opinions... and Ten dollars are a lot of money. Can't leave without one more comment, have you notices a recent insistence in "you & I" being used subjectively? I suspect the idiots decided "you & I" sounds more intellegent and are using it indiscriminately. But you and me know gooder, doesn't us?

Um, Jan, "apostrophies"?! Or was that just to prove you don't take yourself too seriously? Big grin!

Most Prized Possession: I am in possession of my faculties.
Weather conditions where you are: Happy. Pregnant!
Comments:
Hmm, I think I would consider "Geocities" an "it" rather than a "they". My mom and dad are "they"; my family is "it" (I think?). I like your little sign-in survey...perhaps you should also ask for Most Frequently Committed Grammar Sin! Mine would be overuse of ellipsis... :)

Comments:
Found your link on soc.atheism. I liked your "Forum" pieces very much. It rekindled those ever-present feelings of anger toward theists. Your arguments are logical and damning. I also found your "Observations" to be enjoyable reading. Cheers!
Sue Feder - 08/17/97 15:57:13
Weather conditions where you are: Still hot
Comments:
My two current written language pet peeves are: 1) the use of 's to denote the possessive at the end of a word/name that ends in s (ie: Thomas's book)--when I went to school we were taught that in this case the second s is unnecessary (ie: Thomas' book) and it makes my eyeballs cringe when I see that e tra s; and 2) swapping a for i and vice versa in spelling (ie: contemptable instead of contemptible'; despicible instead of despicable)--some of these misspellings are so pervasive that I fear they will become official acceptable (note, not acceptible) alternate sp llings
