Hi bb,

Just wondering what you're up to. Probably busy with school . . . no? I read about disastrous philosophy lecture . . . I hope it's improved.

Hi BB! Welcome to AN! I'm Kris from Queensland. I'd like to invite you to join our Aussie, Kiwi and South Pacific Atheists group.

We have at least a couple of Aussie psychologists on AN. Emeritus Professor Robert Gregson from the ANU, and US based Rosemary Lyndall Wemm are two that come to mind.

I hope you enjoy the site!
