Default Introducing myself

Hi all,

I'm a 53 old male living in Cairns, Queensland, Australia, Earth, Solar System, Milky Way, Universe. I grew up in Germany and migrated to Australia in 2010. I was lucky that my parents werent the big believers and they showed little to no interest in indoctrinating me. Later when school and social environment tried to I was already a positive atheist interested in science. I am also lucky that I'm married to a wife who has a technical background and is an atheist as well.
Our slogan is "Thanks g' I'm an atheist", which some might translate to "Thanks god..." but in fact it is "Thanks gravity...".
I always was, and probably will ever be an atheist. In general I don't know for sure if there is a god at all because i cannot prove the non existence of a god which is the nature of proving. But I'm 100% sure that there is no god as described in the bible or any other theistic book. Especially the attribute "almighty" is something that fails to pass the logic test. And if a god is not almighty, what sense does it make to believe in one?

MfG Stefan Froehlich

So far no storms in Cairns this year. But still 10 hours and 55 minutes to go. ;-)

I expect the cloud fairies will piddle strongly on us, if the mountain to the west doesn't bust things up.

My pepper plants matter more than my neighbour's party, so I say "Bring it on!"

The local weather forecaster in TV said that there will be some downpour today or tomorrow and for the first week in 2018. This usually means we will have another hot and dry day without any rain at all.

I watch the BoM radars, and try to second-guess what terrain and random chance will do.

The result is a mix of science and superstition: I am still convinced I might be causing rain by washing the car.
