    Default G'day all!

    Hello fellow heathens! :P

    I'm a 36 year old female currently living in Melbourne. I've been an atheist for quite a few years now - I was quite religious for a while until I started questioning and finding no satisfactory answers. I'm a member of another atheist forum which led me to this one, and I would like to converse with people who are a bit closer to me geographically. I didn't realise I'd already made an account here until I tried to make another one (hence the time delay between joining and posting my intro)

    I look forward to getting to know you all!
    George Bush says he speaks to god every day, and christians love him for it. If George Bush said he spoke to god through his hair dryer, they would think he was mad. I fail to see how the addition of a hair dryer makes it any more absurd.

    Hi Mrs Lightman

    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.)

    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.

    Hello Mrs Lightman! Welcome and enjoy.
    Just stick to the idea that science tests falsifiable hypotheses to destruction.

    I've never been very good at knowing "my place". Well actually I have, it's just never been where you want it to be.

    Nope, that's a completely unbiased analysis... that I just happen to agree with, for some reason...
    *Gods* are not only a legal fiction, but a fiction in every way. Just ask the nearest hippie...

    Thanks all for your warm welcome!

    Praxis & Logic please - I can see you are both fair and impartial, I like that

    I've been having a look around, and I think I'm gonna like it here. I wish I could have gone to the GAC - the pics look great!
