Thank you it is good to be here and, finally free of the mental slavery that has held me down for years. I look forward to interacting with fellow atheists around the world and, learning much more about my new way of life and thinking.
Thank you for welcoming me to the group. I can see that this is indeed a busy place! I am new to the Atheist Nexus and there is much to do all over this site. Nexus is quite different from many other atheist websites which are generally boring.
A belated thanks for the welcome, the invite and the information you sent. I've not been too active in online discussion due to the upheaval of moving from UK to Indonesia but I'm starting to catch up now. I like the idea of Darwin's birthday being celebrated with a national holiday.
Thank you, young man for all your support. I will check your site, Origins, with gusto!
In passing, will wonders, never cease?
MacMaster University is celebrating the year of Darwin, and Astronomy, all year long in 2009, and has invited all manners of guests, all tops in their fields, of Astronomy, Biology, Cosmology etc. etc.
I have attended all the presentations, and will continue to do so, in the fall.
It's too bad, you are so far away, otherwise we could go out for Wings (Fried Chicken Wings, with hot sauce, a Pub staple here, in North America!) and a Beer, before the presentations. They are usually on Tuesday nights, at 1900 hrs. The first one in June was on Biology, and the last one, was on Cosmology. I do believe you would have really enjoyed any of the!
Thanks again for your input, and the invitation to your Origins group.
Are you perchance a lecturer or professor at Oxford? I was in England about a year ago working a dig and met lecturer Dr. Thomas Pickles from Oxford. I also worked with a current Ph.D student there; he's working on building archaeology.
