Thank you for the welcome, although, I have to ask....you called me Alex...just trying to figure that out. :) I'm Aaron, I assume it was just a small auto answer mistake? I am really looking forward to meeting people on this site. I have literally no friends that are atheist in this area of the bible belt.
Thank you for your warm hospitality. Philosophically, I'm a Marxist who's particularly interested in astro-physics and cosmology. The reason being that these fields are fondamental and are often polluted with religion, propaganda, ignorance and popular beliefs. Unfortunately, from my Internet research I see that Marxists don't get it and have false conceptions about such theories as the Big Bang, which is as scientific as the Missing Link in anthropology! I'm eager to start peeking around your website and chat to members. I've also read considerably about Eric Lerner's Plasma Cosmology Theories and his work on non-neutronic fusion reactors and Walter Thornhill's writing on the electric universe. Cheers!
A cheerful thank-you Dr. Terence Meaden for your welcome to Atheist Nexus org and an invite to another group. Joined.
This shall be fun, and refreshing. Making my brain cells flip with glee expanding in knowledge. Think I've been needing this for a long time, hearing and talking with other atheists.
Living in the Canadian Arctic where everything starts with a prayer, mayors Christmas message drips with baby Jesus and god. Priests/ministers push tons of influence, control over the people. So much many in the flock openly say today’s RC priest sexual abuse arctic trials are a distraction from the good of the church.
The words a crime are not spoken, or screams of outrage over hush money payments are never heard. Even though the messed up minds of the abused are everywhere going back to the church controlled residential schools. But you'll hear people saying to-day the priests will go to heaven as the magic word “forgiven” has been prayed and off they go filling the church.
Over the decades and last month I've spoken up with my voice or writing letters getting wow-e-wow reaction, oh-oh and itsy-bitsy change in minds of the religious indoctrinated minds.
Then facebook came along, slapping a lock and key on religious group thinking minds. Creating a stronger following as the priests have their own facebook pages now, making sure the lock is shut tight and the outside critical thinking is shut-out.
Why I'm happy expanding my brain cell knowledge and having fun here and continuing being one of the only out spoken atheist where I live.
