About Me:
I am a retired gentleman. I have been interested in comparative studies of world religions, both ancient and contemporary. I consider myself to be an atheist - one who believes there is no verifiable evidence for a god.

Welcome!

In case you are interested, there is this discussion group - I get enthused now and then and post studies on religion, but am a complete amateur.  Also, it takes a number of people to discuss, otherwise it's hard to keep going.  Religion is an interesting topic for me too.

Getting Religion on Atheist Nexus.

Getting Religion

INFORMATION

Getting Religion

Nontheists understand that religion is wrong. We discuss religions, rant about them, and fight them. Do we understand them? The goal of here is to learn about religions, how they developed, what they believe, what makes them tick.

Best wishes.
