Default Hi (Obligatory first post)

I guess I have to post something here to prove I'm not spam.
Mmm spam...

Long-time reddit user, but only recent AFA lurker. Looking forward to going to the convention in Melbourne next month, so I thought I'd check out the forums here.

Now, where's that spam? I'm hungry!

Hi, Evolution.

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.

Welcome Evo!

I signed up here (and with the AFA) when the dates for GAC were announced last year. Wanted to get to some of the folks here who will be attending. By and large they're a great bunch () but there are a few of them I wouldn't want to play poker with!

Look forward to your input here and seeing you at GAC - the (second) greatest show on earth! WHICH IS NEXT MONTH!!!!!
What, indeed, is an atheist? He is one who destroys delusions which are harmful to humanity in order to lead men back to nature, to reality, to reason. Baron d'Holbach


If we go back to the beginnings of things, we shall always find that ignorance and fear created the gods; that imagination, rapture and deception embellished them; that weakness worships them; that custom spares them; and that tyranny favours them in order to profit from the blindness of men. Baron d'Holbach

Hi Evolution, welcome to the forums!

It's very exciting seeing the phrase "the convention in Melbourne next month"

It's getting so close! Hope you enjoy it here, out of Lurkerville.

It'sa not so bad, it'sa nicea place
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.
