Hello Ranx, I noticed you were local so I thought I'd point you to the Atheist group I've been running for most of a year now. We also have a facebook and google plus page under the same name. Feel free to wander on by if you are interested. :)
Ranx, I’m not the official welcome wagon, but I do spend a lot of time on A|N, so I’ll take the liberty to tell you a little about the site.
There are three ways to join the conversations. You can use the CHAT ROOM, or you can post a discussion in the FORUM or in one of the GROUPS. The FORUM is open to everyone, but to post in a GROUP you must first join it.
When joining a group, be sure to select FOLLOW at the bottom of the discussions page. The unspoken preference for responding to the comments of another member tend to be that you copy, paste and italicize the text to which you are referring, and then write your response below that. That way everyone knows to whom or what you are referring. Welcome aboard. I hope you enjoy it here.
Welcome to this great international site and its thousands of bright people like you who recognise religion for the superstition and giant fraud that it is,
and that gods are merely fictions inside brains cluttered with the phantoms of 'faith'.
originator of the busy discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its over 240 discussion topics.
