Hi John

Welcome to this world of rationality, truth and peace, where common sense and science lead to freethinking wisdom --- as you know as a long time atheist and freethinker.

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 nearly 3500 members.
