Hello Lynn. You have come to the right place. We understand. Welcome to this friendly meeting place where we recognise--as freethinking atheists do--that gods are phoney and religion is used to control people;
and how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and more.

Terry Meaden (60+)
founder of the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 270 discussion topics. We invite you to join us.
