Thanx for the warm welcome. I look forward to some interesting comments. I think there are a lot of nontheists around but many of them hide their beliefs as they don't want to upset the believers. There are certainly a lot of nontheists in our little town and I discover more and more who think like I do all the time
Hi Steph, thanks for the nice welcome here, looking forward to interesting chats;-)
I just browsed a bit through your profile and found your quote by Emerson a true delight to read, really inspiring!!
But as I googled the quote to get to know a bit more about Emerson, I discovered this site, that stated the quote might not be by Emerson, but by a certain Bessie A. Stanley, and as we are real skeptics, lovers of truth and fact checkers around here, I thought I might as well share my finding with you ;-)
