Hi Steph S. thanks for the welcome to atheistnexus. While in my past I was a professional biological scientist I now have a strong interest in philosophy, story writing and poetry. I'm still a strong advocate for science and especially the environment and global warming which has seen incredible battles over the last few years in Australia. We have a carbon tax but a lot of blood was spilt trying to get it and if the conservative government gets in a our next election this year it could be cut again. In other words the battle never seems to end. LOL
THank you for the warm welcome! I joined this sight because I do not have a lot of people in my life to talk about these things. I can already say I am gratful for this community. I decided to join this after watching Sex Death and the meaning of life by richard dawkins. Ive seen pretty much every documentary of his since I saw the God Delusion when i was 16. At that moment I realized there was no god, and I was not scared it was an astonishing feeling. And I am happy that I was enlightened by it.
