Just thought I'd get online and in touch with a few other atheists world wide. I've been on the council of the NZARH (http://www.nzarh.org.nz/) for a couplke of years and, all going well, I should be the vice president of the NZARH tomorrow (our AGM).
Nice to be on board,
Best, john

Thanks for the welcome, Terence. Only three days a member and I feel right at home on Atheist Nexus. Who said atheists were an unfriendly and unhappy lot? Must have been a god botherer!

“Gods are all in the mind. They are the imaginations of wishful thinkers who do not think enough because they have not learned enough. In short, gods exist only inside the head, and not outside of it.” Terence Meaden. Atheistweb 17 February 2008

I enjoy this quote very much! Completely true in my opinion. It seems as though some people don't believe in a God until they are in a position where there is no hope and then they pray to "God" and all the sudden he exists to them.

Just a thought that I had.

Hi Terry,

Sorry about the delay in posting back.

No - I'm afraid to say that I am in fact a bogus Reverend. I was brought up RC and have a fascination with the effect that religious titles and the associated garb has on an individual. I remember listening to Matt Dillahunty of the ACA say something similar in that he occasionally dresses up as a minister and visits various places in Austin Texas. Matt noticed the effect of walking around his town and the way that strangers would react - It's almost as if the wearing of the unifom makes you instantly a fine upstanding member of the community. Tell that to children in the catholic schools of Ireland.

I've been an atheist since my mid-teens but it has only been in the last few years that I've sensed the need for rationalists to mobilise in the face of the wave of insanity that is organised religion. I can't help thinking that one day the Government in the UK will issue all citizens with a guide to all the things that they are NOT allowed to say to Jews, Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Scientologists, Mormons, Raelians etc etc etc etc and that how every viewpoint is one that MUST be respected. Disrespect will then be punishable by Community Service Orders, ASBOs etc.

Thanks for the welcome, and thanks for wishing me well with the PhD program (I'm sick of this ABD crap!). I'll take your advice and join a few groups here, see what is going on.

CHRISTIANS ARE SUCH A DELUDED PEOPLE. THEY ARE SUPERSTITIOUS PEOPLE. SORRY FOR MISPELLING I HAD A STROKE
AND THAT IS WHY.

Thanks for the welcome.

I just recently learned about this Website from the "Without Deities" forum on Delphiforums.com. In addition to my two books with atheistic themes, I have written s series of columns that examine those topics.

I AGREE WITH DR. TERENCE MEADEN THAT CHRISTIANS ESPECIALLY ARE GROVELLING TO CLERGY. MIND CONTROL IS TERRIBLE, AND THAT WHAT CLERGY ARE DOING TO THESE PEOPLE.

OF COURSE THEY ARE DUMB, BUT THAT IS WHAT HAVE WITH CHRISTIANS. DUMB, DUMB, PEOPLE.

I KNOW THAT THERE IS NO GOD, NO JESUS, BECAUSE MY BROTHER DIED FROM A CAR WRECK 4.75 YEARS AGO. HE WAS SHOCKED BACK TO LIFE WHEN ON THE TABLE, AND SAW NO GOD, NO JESUS
AND HE USED TO BELEIVER. NOW THAT HE IS ALIVE AND WALKING HE KNOWS THE TRUTH NOW.

I JUST THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE IT WITH YOU.

THANKS

Hello. sadly in my first attempt to comment on an issue i seem to have encountered an anti-semite so my enthusiasm has abated.
