Greetings, Nealie! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest.

Hi Nealie. Welcome to this rational world of Internet atheism----a haven from the irrational superstitions and fictional god of the masses. 

We invite you to make good friends by joining the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Gods, Atheism, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 400 discussion topics and 2400 members.
