"Yes I'm sure it's gotta be kinda lonesome being that way. I'm, I guess you can say, an "atheist mechanist" and have never believed in anything paranormal at all; it's all balderdash. But that does not reduce or diminish…"

"And you're right; time - in any "human scale " sense of the term does not really "exist" like an independent fabric through which we can "travel" like H.G. Wells' Time Machine. Like the Heisenberg Uncertainty…"

Happy to meet you all

I am very glad that, finally, nontheists are associating in various groups around the world to proliferate this sensible and benign outlook. And, let's face it, these coalitions also function as "support groups" since, as many testimonies indicate, being an atheist in even THIS country is a recipe for alienation and ostracization.
I am looking forward to discovering the various views and feelings of this band of Freethinkers such as myself, and hope we can eventually, perhaps in the distant future, effect decisions and policies in goverments and public institutions that can get the world out of the Dark Ages of vehement irrationalism and elevate it into an Enlightenment, whose dispostion will value and operate from the perspective of reason and secular humanism. Too much damage has been done in the name of Religion and Spiritual Faith.

Hi Martin Penkala and welcome to this great meeting place where religion is recognised for the superstition and crowd-control fraud that it is --- and that God and gods are merely fictions inside human heads.
