Thank you so much for the warm welcome. I am very excited about being a member of this site. I don't have very many people to talk to about my lack of belief in religion. I can talk to a few of my friends but the majority of them are Christian, Jewish, etc. If I do say anything they think I'm nuts. Sometimes when people blurt out religious stuff I want to blurt something back but I keep quiet. My daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer last September and has been fighting it since then with chemo, radiation, mastectomy, etc. Everyone always says they will pray for her and I want to slap them. My lack of belief in religion has nothing to do with her having cancer. For years I have been reading, investigating, asking questions and finally came to this conclusion. Even as a child, I had questions and no one could answer them. They always use the "faith" comment. It is a pleasure to be here with like minded people. I look forward to reading your posts and watching the videos. This site is wonderful!!
Thanks for the welcome. I will stick around for a few days. I will be looking out for pointers to refute rationally (should be easy enough) the bull-shit creationists would have us believe. And any stuff that shows what a wicked scam the 'healing' god-crap shit is all about. What really gets me mad are the creationist broadcasts on Sky-religion - the presentations look convincing on the surface - but they are all nonsense and Rupert Murdoch and his crew should be ashamed of themselves - (hard for him to be shamed I suppose). Sorry for the profanities. L8r - from merry merry England, where we like a drink and good laugh at ourselves.
thanks for the welcome. (belated, I know) school and stuff. Glad to be a part of this group. Like I told my wife, when you're a member of a church you get chastised and told "you're wrong" for thinking certain things - but at least here, it's an actual community.
