Hi Joel, and welcome to this rational world of Internet atheism---a haven from the 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 475 discussion topics and 2700 members.
So, Joel. What do you think of Hang With Friends? I'd like your ideas about discussions that would appeal to the 14-17 year olds. I'm never going to get younger participants in number unless the social space has something to offer. Suggestions? BTW, I liked your second icon better than this one.

There is an ad that reads ' Do you support 'traditional' marriage? Vote Now"! .
No, I don't support 'traditional' marriage because there is no such thing. I support heterosexual and same-sex couples marry each other legally , yes. 'Traditional' marriage promoters largely do not believe that heterosexual women are co-equal to their husbands. Their only purpose in 'traditional' marriage is to sexually satisfy their husbands if they can and raise children and do all…
i've got no problem with everyone saying "merry christmas" on christmas day. however, they've turned it into an entire holiday season where it lasts a month or more. in those situations it should be perfectly acceptable to say "happy holidays" or call it a…
