Welcome to this excellent site and its bright non-theists who recognise that religion is a fraud and gods are nothing but superstitions of the credulous.
Terry Meaden (English; physicist and archaeologist, 60+) founder of the busy group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its over 200 discussion topics.
We examine the world’s great questions including how life and humans, religion and faith, and everything else began.
We invite you to come and enjoy the entertaining discussions. http://www.atheistnexus.org/group/originsuniverselifehumankindanddarwin
I'd also like to let you know about the Rise of Atheism Global Atheist Convention to be held in Melbourne next March. It's going to be huge, and speakers will include Richard Dawkins, PZ Myers, Peter Singer, Phillip Adams and many more. 1000 tickets have been sold already.
Unfortunately, if you want to access the convention website, you will have to be a little patient. It, and the Atheist Foundation of Australia website were the subject of a cyber-attack yesterday which has continued (and increased) throughout the day. The convention website is safe, but has been taken offline for safety. I'll let everyone know when it's back up.
In the meantime, enjoy Atheist Nexus - I hope you'll join us in our group, and maybe in Melbourne next year.
Oh, one more thing - do you know about the Brisbane Atheists Meetup group? They meet monthly in the City and have regular Saturday night outings. There's also an online community. We meet monthly up here on the Sunshine Coast too, if you're ever up around Noosa way on the 2nd Wednesday of the month.
