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.

Thanks for the kind welcome. As to how I "came to my senses," my story isn't that different than many others I have heard. I was raised in a fairly conventional home in a conventional setting. Growing up in South Florida in the 1950s, there really wasn't much occasion for challenging the status quo, and, frankly, I wasn't that adventurous anyway. I managed to coast through school getting good grades without getting much of an education. It was only after I had been out in the world and began to rethink much of what I had been taught that I also began to seriously question ideas about gods and religions. That started an evolution in my thinking that led me to investigate further and rekindled a long dormant interest in science. By the time I was 35 I was calling myself an "agnostic" and soon realized I also was an atheist. That was more than three decades ago, and in the time since I have been a much happier and more productive person than I ever was while under the influence of gods and religions.

That's the short version. Thanks again for the welcome.

This refers to your comment on my Avtar. In my young age there was no upper portion and slowly as per Darwin life grown.

Thank you for the kind welcome, Doctor. I noticed in your "About Me" info, that you referenced one of my favourite quotes from Mr. Charles Darwin (as to how ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge). What a gem of a quip.....clever, concise and undeniably true.

Hear in India we have small group named VIVEKPANTHI of Gujarati Language. We regularly meet and attend meetings and give free opinion on Hindu, Buddh and Jain Religion and their God theory. We enjoy being an Atheist, Rationalist. We publish magazine in Gujarati and same is available free of charge on net. We express our main opinion on Karma Theory and How widows, Poors and Dalits belive in Karma. More than 1/6 population of world (say more than 110,00,00,000 almost all belive in Karma theory, Aatma, Rebirth, and so on. Almost all know Charvak was first Atheist on this planet to freed from Religion and God.

लगभग २६०० साल पहले चार्वाक या चार्वाक वाद हो गया। च्रा‍र्वाक ने हमे सीखाया की खाओ, पीओ ओर मोज मजा करो। स्वस्थ रहना ही जीवन है। स्वस्थ जीवन से वीचार स्वस्थ होते है। धर्म या भगवान जैसी कोई चीज नहीं है। कर्म, पुनःजन्म, जाती स्मरण सब बकवास है।

Thank you for your greeting, Dr. Meaden.

I'm glad to have found a place where non-theists can seek refuge - especially with folks like myself living smack dab in the center of the bible belt.

Thanks for the welcome. I am excited about all of the documentaries we have in development. It's about time people start showing people like US in a positive light.

Thank you for the welcome! Yes I am beyond grateful to be out of the Jehovah's Witnesses as my experience with the group was horrific. Freedom is SWEET!

This is a great social network.
