We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Loren Miller: “We live now in the age of science, methodology and logic, where rational thought is slowly but surely displacing superstition as the primary means of evaluating our reality, how it behaves and what we can do with it. The brand of “crossing your fingers” which Pascal's Wager represents has no place and is unsupportable by any form of rational analysis.” November 14, 2009.
Loren, I have a 300-page book of Atheist-themed quotes coming out in 2021. It includes about 14 of Loren's. This one I use in the Preface to the 60 chapters. Terry.

So good to see you here, Terry. Keep us posted on your book please.

Terry, I'm honored to be included in your collection of quotes, and I look forward to its publishing date, because I would love to own a copy!

Loren,I'll tell you more when I can. Maybe by the spring.
“There is nothing of value that can be accomplished with religion that cannot be accomplished without religion.” Loren C. Miller, Jr.

Terry, I am so glad to see your name! I thought of you just the other day. I like Loren's quote! 

I alerted my favorite book store owner to be on the lookout for your book! I know it will be a good read!

So nice to be with you again, Joan. Here's a quote of yours from 10 years ago. It is in Chapter 34 of "Q" about "Atheist Life and Purpose."
“Meaning is a tricky thing to think about because it can so easily get caught up in notions of existence for others. I like knowing I exist! Period! That is enough! I don't have to do anything ... my mother and father put the chemistry together, I came into the world with valuable traits and I learned others along the way.
A bee doesn't get up in the morning, rub its limbs together and say, “I must go and do the work of the lord!” It flies to a flower that smells good and is pretty to it, wallows in it for a moment, goes to the next, and on and on; When the apple tree finishes its task of blooming beautiful, fragrant blossoms, the bee finishes its task of pollinating the orchard, then in their time, apples appear. It is a natural process.
You and I are like that; we awaken each morning, do what we need to do and a natural process completes our cycles of life. Our mandate is not to go out and save souls, it is to be.” Joan Denoo. Atheist Nexus. 30 November 2010.

Terry, what a nice feeling to read my words quoted from you! I am honored!

Joan, here is another one that I used, succinct and to the point:
“Religion is a failed social paradigm because it bases its ‘facts’ on stories, myths, wishful thinking, and the desire to be dependent. Too bad the dependence exists as a dream, not a reality.” Joan Denoo. Atheist Nexus. 14 April 2012.

Joan, this excellent statement just went into my own personal collection of quotes.  Over the years, your clear perception of the human condition and your commentary on that perception has been very appreciated by me, and as I thrill to the idea of my words being immortalized in Terry's book, I am also very pleased to know that yours are as well.
