Hello, and welcome to Dr Allan H. Clark in California. We are pleased to welcome you here among the sensible, rational people of this world.

This is a fantastic meeting place with its 14,750 bright people like you who recognise religion for the superstition and fraud that it is---
and that God and gods are nothing but fictions.

originator of the busy discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 250 discussion topics.
