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!

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.

Hi Mrs L and welcome.

Hope you enjoy the forums. Lots of nice people from Melbourne here. Of course I'm not just saying that because I'm from
Melbourne. Definitely not

Nope, that's a completely unbiased analysis... that I just happen to agree with, for some reason...

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!
