William Hutton replied to HourglassStargazer's discussion Terrible experience

HourglassStargazer replied to Brad Feaker's discussion The curse of Facebook in the group Life After Christian Fundamentalism

Hi
Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its 10,600+ good friends and discussion groups.
Among the groups, may I suggest you try the busy group “ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Humans, Evolution, Religion.....” with its 160 commonsense topics whose discussions rebuff religious nonsense. You will be welcome.
