I am an atheist. I was once a member of a small Christian sect. I left it many years ago. I see religion as belief in things which are false, and this belief and the behaviours that result from that belief harmful to human progress and happiness. I think we as atheists need to expose and oppose false belief, we need to support each other and we need to lead by example. We need to offer alternatives to those seeking solace in religion and show them a better way. I am heartened by articulate exponents like Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins. I look forward to AFA becoming a leading voice and platform for atheists and free thinkers in Australia. I hope I can in some small way contribute to progress in this endeavour.

Hi there FF, how about starting a new thread about yourself in this section of the forum. That's what its for.
"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.
