Hi John. You are so right with your opening statement. Bravo. Welcome to this rational world of Internet atheism---a haven from the superstitions and fictional god of the masses. 

"True common sense is the basis for atheism."

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 450 discussion topics and 2550 members.
