It's a pleasure to join your group! I fight ID and creationism in my own way. My friend Tiana and I crashed the gates of the Discovery Institute disguised as god-fearing Christian schoolteachers and learned all sorts of stuff they never tell you! We were featured on Pharyngula and we're being interviewed on Skepticality in the near future. It just goes to prove anyone can fight these people and we shouldn't shy away from doing what we can. I truly admire your work and hope I can one day make as big an impact.
Welcome within this world of commonsense.
I see that you love archaeology.
We invite you to join our group called "ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Humankind, Darwinism, ..."
We debate origins of life, Earth, humanity, religion, atheism, using evolution, cosmology, geology, archaeology, science, and commonsense to repel creationist nonsense…
I have tried to add you as a friend but I'm not sure it's taking, so if there's any way you could add me (if you have better luck), that would be fantastic. I find you fascinating and would like a way to keep up with your goings on. Physics AND Archaeology! I only ever aspired to the latter but dreamed of the former.
Hmm, perhaps you would be interested--when you had a few hours--to read my series "The Ontological Taxonomy of the Human Soul".
Not that it has to do with science. But the definition of my metaphysical naturalism began with something from B.A.G. Fuller and is found here.
Thank you Jason.
This is a reference to my original research into Britain's great megalithic monuments of the Neolithic and Bronze Age periods--- above all, Stonehenge and Avebury.
Since I wrote those pieces I have continued and expanded the research, and various publications are imminent in specialised archaeological books.
But I'll say this in short:
the origins of those ancient monuments are readily explained in terms of religion, fertility religion--but it is hard for christian archaeologists to see this because of their religious bias. It seems to need a hardened atheist to solve these ancient mysteries that depend so much on inferring knowledge about lost religions from the symbolic and constructional eveidence that is available for those who have open minds to understand.
I just finished reading through several of your articles on your web site and found them very informative. I plan on crossing the pond to visit Stonehenge next spring and will refer to your work again before I go. Thank you for the great information!

Hello. Im glad to be in the group. I don't know much about a lot of things, but im always willing to learn. I hope to find out more about the science about Evolution, and I hope you can help me out sometime.
I've found in my own research into common creationist arguments that they're very slow to come up with new "refutations" most of their arguments are 50+ years old, and even more are based on a high-school level understanding of scientific theories (or even worse, straw-man versions thereof). The only explanation is one of a failing of education or the strength of indoctrination, the believe the scripture over the science because that's how they want the world to be. The only answer is stronger standards in science education and larger public support of science educators.
