Hello Marc. 

Welcome to this worldwide nexus of truth and peace---far from the god-worshipping superstitious masses. 

"If freethinkers could reason with the believers, there would be no believers." True common sense and science inevitably lead to atheist wisdom.

We invite you to make good friends by joining the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Gods, Atheism, Evolution, Darwin..." with 500 discussion topics and 3000 members.
