Hi Ceil

Welcome to this world of rationality, truth and peace, where common sense and science lead to freethinking wisdom --- as you know as a non believer and freethinker like us.

We invite you to make good friends by joining the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Gods, Atheism, Evolution, Darwin..." with 700 discussion topics and 3500 members.

Welcome aboard! =)  Hope you're doing great today...

Welcome, Ceil! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends. You might also like Atheist Teachers, Are You Experienced?, Women Atheists, Female Atheists, and possibly Feminist Atheists.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since Vermont's climate is at risk.

After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.
