    Hello Sicile Daresh, and welcome to this friendly meeting place with freethinkers who recognise that religion is a huge deception aimed at controlling vulnerable superstitious people, including defenceless children; and
    how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and even longer.

    founder of the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 290 discussion topics.

    Not really a secret but I am keeping them close to my chest because some of the themes could get a fatwa put on my head. so I don't want to publish to much in a public forum until they are done or almost done. I will invite you as a friend and send you my email address privately if you would like to know more.

    Delighted to help. Terry

    Thanks for your comments! It was nice of you! I need to put a different bible verse up, that one has been there for a while - still, I'm glad you liked it.

    Dear Sicile
    I can tell you about some videos to watch that have been recommended within the "Origins" group. There are many of them.

    e.g. excellent on Darwin
    http://www.atheistnexus.org/group/originsuniverselifehumankindandda...

    If I trawl back through the early discussion topics on "Origins" (especially around November 2008 to February 2009) I can find numerous good videos placed there about the Universe and everything else.

    But what I suggest is this. Rewrite your message as a discussion question topic, asking the members of "Origins". Richard Healy could be among those who respond as regards the video answer. That way others too will benefit from the advice given about books, films, videos etc.

    So prepare your topic message and post it as a discussion topic. If you need help to how to post it, ask me of course.
    Good luck and best wishes, Terry.

    Thanks so much for your thoughtful comments Sicile! I certainly would recommend coming out with the atheism...when you're ready of course. After my deconversion, church was/is the most uncomfortable place in the world for me. If I didn't come out with it to the family, I would be expected to go & I just can't do that...not even as a social gathering. Nothwithstanding, I still like Anselms quote from long ago, Every saint has a past, every sinner has a future. The next step for me now is bridging the silence & actually talking about the "Elephant in the Living Room." Gently of course.

    Hi Sicile,
    Sorry about the delay in replying, but I got your message on my smart-phone last night (time difference Ireland - US I guess ) and I needed a laptop to answer properly. No problem with info. though.
    A few clarifying questions for you though;
    When you say you would live to visit the northern section do you mean the geographic north or Northern Ireland (part of the UK).
    Again when you refer to the north, do you mean the very north or just north of where you were the last visit?
    What Airport are you flying to or is that still open to choice?
    What kind of holiday are you planning? Will you rent a car, a bike or use public transport? Are you planning to stay in hotels, bed & breakfasts, hostels, just camp or use a mixture of these? What are you looking for in a holiday? Night-life, beaches, mountainsides, museums, scenery, festivals or what?
    Finally, when are you coming and how long will you be hear?
    If you can let me know some or all of the above together with any other info you think relevant, I'll help with any info I can.
    regards,
    Jack
