Hello and thank you, Ruth. I will check that group out. I am also a former police officer, so it may fit me well. I have already found a few groups of interest, including the American Atheist group, of which I am an annual paying member. The more I explore this site, the more I am appreciating it. Thanks also for the layout tip, I am trying to figure all the functions out at the moment.
Thank you for the comment. We'd love to check out a copy of your paper! We have a Facebook page "godless prophets", which is what we meant by "like". Please look us up. Looking forward the future interactions
Thank you for the welcome, Ruth! The links to groups and such to look into is very informative and appreciated. Have a wonderful day! I will poke around in those groups as well as the community in general.
New Atheism is the name given to the ideas promoted by a collection of 21st-century atheist writers who have advocated the view that "religion should not simply be tolerated but should be countered, criticized, and exposed by rational argument wherever its influence arises."...The term is commonly associated with individuals such as Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris, and the late Christopher Hitchens (together called "the Four Horsemen of New Atheism" (Wikipedia).
