Talking Hello

Robsta here,

Im a third generation atheist. My Irish grandfather fought the shackles of 19th Century Catholicism by running away to Australia & married a local atheist girl & they brought up there 9 kids in the one true faith of atheism. My parents followed suit.
I am hoping to connect with others who share the concept of clear, rational thought after feeling a little lonely on that front recently.
Try to walk my own path & think at the same time....

Hi Robsta

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.

Hello Robsta!
Just stick to the idea that science tests falsifiable hypotheses to destruction.
