    Default Cynical Bloke

    Hi all.

    I am a 26 year old male from Perth and I have been an atheist for approximately 3 years. I recently became a member of the Atheist Foundation of Australia and Atheist Alliance International. I also write a blog called Cynical Bloke. (Shameless self promotion, I know).

    I have become so interested in debates on religion and the paranormal that I have found myself back at university studying psychology (to really find out why people believe weird things). I will also be making the trip to Melbourne to see Think Inc, as many of my intellectual heroes will be there. Oh, and I may also want to see Crown Casino just a bit. I would love to meet other atheists over there for a nice chat. Let me know!

    Hi Dawk

    This is a message sent to all who find their way to these forums.

    We like people, and we like facts too!

    We're friendly but we're skeptical, and if somebody calls for proof, it's not an accusation. Only the strong ideas thrive here: we try to respect people. (We do not tolerate personal abuse.)

    If you're an AFA member and need your membership status recognised in forum access, please send a Private Message to Admin, including the name on your AFA membership.

    You may already have visited these other handy places:
    * New Member Information
    * Welcome from AFA president
    * For those interested in learning, I recommend the Atheism Resource Thread maintained by Fearless.
    * And a quick look at our reserved spot for belief-based discussion, Fantasy Island, includes The Great Big List, a sort-of "things we've seen before" for those of faith, and general rules of argument for the forum.

    If you've got questions, please ask. Moderators have red name tags, but many of our friendly people may have the answers you need.

    Enjoy the forums. We hope to see plenty from you in discussions.

    Have fun.

    Welcome Dawk. Hope your studies into why people believe ridiculous crap prove to be interesting.

    Hello Dawk,

    I hope you enjoy it here.
    Just stick to the idea that science tests falsifiable hypotheses to destruction.
