Default Hello all.

Hi all.

I was raised Catholic but in a very non-strict household. It mainly came from my grand parents rather than my parents. I have now been atheist for about 15 years. It's only been recently that I've been more active and vocal about my atheism. It was kicked started when I read The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins.

I am active on Twitter as MrOzAtheist - which I set up to focus on atheism which I don't want to do on my personal twitter account.

I'm a huge fan of The Atheist Experience from Austin, Texas. I look forward to sharing thoughts will you all.

Hi Dgen

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.)

If you're an AFA member and need your membership status recognised in forum access, please send a Private Message to Admin, including the name on your AFA membership.

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.

Hope you enjoy it here.
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 Dgen, welcome and enjoy.
Just stick to the idea that science tests falsifiable hypotheses to destruction.
