Hello Ernie and welcome to this wonderful world of atheist truth and peace.
                                                                                       .
"True common sense helped by science leads to atheist wisdom."
If freethinkers could only reason with the religious, there would be no religious. 
Lord Byron: “Those who will not reason, are bigots, those who cannot, are fools, and those who dare not, are slaves”
to which we add "---but those who do, are atheists."
