If you feel like you are one of those few atheists who do not believe in expanding government, you are not alone.  Join this group if you want to talk about the interdependence of freethought and libertarianism.

Good morning everybody. Another week gone by w/o any god having revealed house to the masses in any unambiguous manner. And I hope everyone continues to deal with it as well as we have.

What kind of TV show do you have in mind to discuss? We have folks from 14 to 70 in the group. It will work best if it's a popular show. Sound like a good idea.

There are at least two options to respond.  One is to just add a comment, which is what I think you are doing.  The other is to hit the view thread page during an ongoing conversation, which is what I am doing now.

Because my comment is (now) out of date, so (technically) is yours. I'm now retired from American Atheists (I'm now on the board of directors) and no longer getting paid. But it's still an honor and a pleasure to be involved. And to get grief from some of these Xtn whackos.

You are thinking of Paleontologists who do research dinosaurs.  In contrast, Archaeologists (who are Anthropologists) research human prehistory and history.  This is a common mistake and I am not helping matters since I have a dinosaur photo on my page.  Don't get me wrong I also enjoy dinosaurs and the research that Paleontologists do as much as anyone.  In fact, you likely know more about dinosaurs than I do.  I can't tell one dinosaur from another, but I certainly appreciate the evidence of evolution and it always makes me ponder the millions of years that have passed.  It blows me away every time.
