Cadmar, I’m not the official welcome wagon, but I do spend a lot of time on A|N, so I’ll take the liberty to tell you a little about the site.
There are three ways to join the conversations. You can use the CHAT ROOM, or you can post a discussion in the FORUM or in one of the GROUPS. The FORUM is open to everyone, but to post in a GROUP you must first join it.
When joining a group, be sure to select FOLLOW at the bottom of the discussions page. The unspoken preference for responding to the comments of another member tend to be that you copy, paste and italicize the text to which you are referring, and then write your response below that. That way everyone knows to whom or what you are referring. Welcome aboard. I hope you enjoy it here.
Hi Cadmar. Welcome to this friendly meeting place
where we recognise that religion is a great fraud with fictional gods used to control people, and how it is tragic and inexcusable that women and minorities have been oppressed these last 2000 years.
We debate origins of the Universe, life, Earth, humans, religion, atheism, using common sense, evolution, cosmology, geology, archaeology, and other sciences, to repel biblical creationism and other religious beliefs.
While promoting atheism, Harris examines spirituality by means of considering philosophy, neuroscience and mysticism rather than displaying tacit disdain for it. He warns of the threat that fundamentalist religion poses to human progress and survival
