Talking To GAC and Beyond!

A quick hello! I am attending the GAC in April and thought I should snoop around the forums here for some discussions and advice. I am an American living in Auckland studying Geophysics. Hopefully I will be in Australia at the end of 2012 for grad school, though.

Can't wait for April!

Hi, APrice138.

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 AP - welcome to the forum and the terribly exciting countdown to the GAC.

There is guaranteed to be much jumping of both the up and the down variety, as well as quite a decent amount of arm-waving and quite possibly some vocalising of the excited kind.

So you'll be in good company.

In the meantime, please enjoy the forums
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 AP, welcome and enjoy.
Just stick to the idea that science is just about making descriptive models of natural phenomena, whose emergent predictions are tested to destruction.
