Default Hi everyone

Hello fellow heathens. My name's Rachel and I'm from Melbourne. I found out about the global atheist convention two days before it was on and decided on a whim to go and I'm so glad I did. I didn't know about the AFA or the Secular party of Australia or any of these things and I'd like to get more involved. So here I am. Hi!

Hi, Rachel. 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 Rachel! Glad you heard about the GAC just in time to attend. It's nice that it has also led you to explore atheism further.

Thanks for all the welcomes, guys! Nice to meet you all.

And yes, the GAC was phenomenal. I was totally blown away. Best convention ever. Worth every penny. I had already bought a ticket to Supanova that week, but I decided to go to the GAC instead.
