Default Hi all, new to the forums

Hi all, I came to the AFA forums from a suggestion by @shockwave on twitter. I had a question in reference to the school chaplaincy program in the ACT. I'll head over to the "Family Matters" forum to ask my question. See you around!

Hi, chrisdbarry.

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 Chris and welcome.

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.

Hi Chris, welcome and enjoy!
Just stick to the idea that science tests falsifiable hypotheses to destruction.

G'day Chris,

welcome. I read your thread about dealing with NSCP in the ACT.

It makes me think its about time to pull together a large nationwide database about that and the RI classes, gather together examples of abuse and harm caused from all over, identify all the decision makers related to the programs and pull together local groups into a national working group.

That's probably a bit ambitious but I sense all the pieces to the puzzle are there, waiting to be coordinated somehow.
"History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government".
-Thomas Jefferson

Burden of proof is the obligation on somebody presenting a claim to provide evidence to support its truth (a warrant). Once evidence has been presented, it is up to any opposing "side" to show the evidence presented is not adequate. If claims were accepted without warrants, then every claim could simultaneously be claimed to be true.

History isn't written by the victors. It's written by the people with the time machines.
