Hi Everyone,

40 years as a lone wolf atheist, finally coming out into structured atheism by joining AFA.

I was brought up as a Catholic until I reached the age of reason (15yo in my case).

Throughout my life, I have lived in both Muslim and Christian societies on 4 continents.

I currently live in Melbourne's West.

In the past, I believed that the best way to deal with religion was to let people enjoy their delusion. Nowadays, religion encroaches so much into the lives of others that it needs to be actively fought.

Welcome JGE,

Join the mission from god!
Just stick to the idea that science tests falsifiable hypotheses to destruction.
