Hi, and welcome to .
We are pleased to welcome you here among the sensible, rational people of this world who, like you, recognise religion for the superstition and fraud that it is --- and that God and gods are nothing but fictions inside people's heads.

Hi, again. I got interrupted and didn't finish the introduction. Always glad to meet another scientist and teacher/instructor. I'm a physicist but who in retirement went through university again to become an archaeologist as well.

Hi N Ataie, welcome to Atheist Nexus and our group Godless of Hawaii, it’s always great to meet another Heathen from Hawaii. There are a lot of really great groups here, I’m sure you’ll find some good conversations.
