Robin Welch replied to EccentricSM's discussion Has anyone else been an atheist as long as they remember?
"My parents would tell you today that they believe in god, but fortunately they didn't mention that fact during my childhood. So I was allowed to be a natural child, an atheist. In 1967 I was 5-years-old and my father was sent to Viet Nam for a…"

Robin, I’m not the official welcome wagon, but I do spend a lot of time on A|N, so I’ll take the liberty to welcome you and tell you a little about the site.

There are three ways to join in the conversations here. You can use the CHAT ROOM, or you can post a discussion in either the FORUM or in one of the GROUPS. The FORUM has different categories for posting discussions, and it is open to everyone here. To post a discussion or comment in a GROUP, you must first join that group.

There are over 500 groups so far, so just about any area of interest you can have will be represented. There are regional groups, groups for ex-Christians or ex-Muslims, and groups for pot smokers, bikers, singles, gamers, the LGBT community, and pet lovers. Groups of common interest include: music, science, writing, politics, Chomsky, Dawkins, philosophy, morality, ethics, cinema, human rights, memetics, sexuality, history, race & culture, gardening, vegetarianism, books, beer, propaganda, Cynicism, Objectivism, news, anime, Doctor Who, free speech, the NFL, Carl Sagan, psychology, Humanism, science fiction, horror films, gun owners, Star Trek, and much more.

You are welcome to start your own group, but I might suggest that you first check to make sure that no such group for that particular interest already exists (for example, we already have four LGBT groups).

I've started nine groups here (no comments my OCD, please), so please join any you think you might be interested in: FOUR SCORE AND SEVEN YEARS AGO, THE KNIFE & FORK, HUMANE ATHEISTS, CONSUMER ETHICS, A TRICK OF THE EYE, ODDITORIUM, ARS POETICA, LOVERS OF SHAKESPEARE, and LINGUAPHILES & SESQUIPEDALIANS.

When commenting in a group, be sure to select FOLLOW at the bottom of the screen so that you’ll be informed of follow up comments to either the discussion, or to your comments. Also, the unspoken preference on A|N for responding to the comments of another member tend to be that you copy the text to which you are referring, paste it in your comment, italicize it, and then write your response below that. That way everyone knows to whom or what you are referring. You should also activate all links or URLs you post.

The best way to see what’s going on elsewhere on the site is to monitor the LATEST ACTIVITY feed on the right side of the screen. You’ll see new members announced and the conversations that are attracting the most attention.

Again, welcome aboard. I hope you enjoy it here, as I do.

Hi Robin, welcome!

The Dawkins trip sounds great, but sadly that's the middle of the week and I'll be working. You might get Susan to go, though, she's very adventurous. I'll send her a message in case she doesn't see this.

I see you went to William & Mary and that you're in law. Did you know that our DA, Dean Flippo, is a W&M alum? I'm sure you did, I think he teaches at Monterey College of Law sometimes. Well anyway, he's very proud of his school, and he made me wish I had gone there!

I hope you can make one of our get-togethers sometime. We aren't that active and don't meet often, but we have fun when we do. There's also a group in Santa Cruz called 'Skeptics Without a Cause', which we associate with, and they're a lot of fun too. Let me know if you're interested in an introduction.

Talk to you later!

John
