Dr. Meaden,
Thank you for the welcome to Nexus. I have been searching for a common group of people who do not believe in the exhistance of a god. I have been doing some research in the past few weeks on people that are currently involved in humanism and where the world is today on these subjects. I came across the name Richard Dawkins who I now understand is a very outspoken atheist among his many acomplishments as a scholar. I just listened to part of a video he created titled "The root of all evil". It was such a fresh breath for me to hear someone speak very openly about religion and its absents of reality. I have felt since my mid-teens that the bible was a book writen by weak men to keep people in control based on its rules. I did not grow up in a strong relgious based family. My fathers side was raised Presbtarian and my mother was raised Catholic but left the church as a result of a nasty priest. I believe that religion is fear based. Money is the name of the game. I moved to South Carolina and was amazed on the size og the churches here and then learned from co-works about tithing your wages to the church. I thought....ohh ok God will love you if you give him money...lol. I attended church 3 times in 1998. I filled out my name on the guest list the first 2 times and donated $5.00 in cash to the church. The third time I attended I did not fill out the guest book and left a check for $5.00. I never head a thing from the church after signing the guest book. Although after depositing my check, I recieved a letter being invited back....hmmm sound fishy to you? I have always tried to be a logical person. I am hoping to find others here that will feel how I do and not be afraid to speak up about it. Thanks again.

Thanks for the welcome Terry. Coincidentally, I was watching a symposium titled "Origins" when you wrote. Ran April 2nd through 6th at Arizona State U and videos may go up on the Science Network at some point.

Doctor, Is there a possibility of working together to develop the Atheistic Values in Africa? Do you have some ideas? What would you like to see happening in Africa? I hope we can discuss.

Thank you Dr. Meaden.

I will comment from time to time and follow threads where they might take me. I don't tend to lash out very often but I do take umbrage with "establishment clause" violations. Who wants to live in Iran?! I will visit the ORIGINS...site asap.

Thank you for the warm welcome. That's precisely the reason I love atheist communities, people are for the most part super-nice. That, and, you know, they THINK. :)

Hello Dr Meaden. Thank you for your welcome. I am under severe time constraints now but will contact you later. I would like to establish a circle of friends in my area to discuss issues of common interest, and to embark on an effort to address the many problems we are experiencing collectively due to the myopia, amnesia and religious preoccupation of most in our global village. Atheism generally equals an intelligent and enquiring mind. we need to harness these qualities somehow. I am hoping this website will enable me to make the necessary acquaintances. Education is the key, and my city boasts some of the premier private and public schools in South Africa, many of whom use a religious culture to brainwash the kids. I have teemed up with a few bright and concerned people, having started a discussion group. But its time to move up a gear. Have some ideas to share. Til later...

Thank you for the thoughtful welcome Dr. Meaden. It will be nice conversing with those of like thought and I look forward to joining some groups as you suggest. Being a man of physics you may be interested in a book my stepfather wrote "Unification of Electromagnetism, Kinematics, and Gravitation". He (Dr. NFJ Matthews) finished it just before his passing in 1999 while still at North Carolina State University. If you (or anyone else) are interested and need help getting copy let me know.
