Living in denial: When a sceptic isn't a sceptic - by Michael Shermer

Hello Leo, and welcome to this friendly meeting place where we recognise--like you do as a freethinking atheist--that all the gods are phoney and religions are cunning frauds used to control people;

Terry Meaden
founder of the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 260 discussion topics. We invite you to join us.
