I just want to say welcome to the new members of this group. It's a new group, too, so please *do* start some conversation on the topic, if you feel so inclined.
Personally, I totally believe the noodly appendages of the FSM should touch every being on Earth,,, but hmmm, maybe that's not such a good stance from which to make decisions that affect others.
When theists run countries and start wars or make policy decisions while believing that their actions are justified by a god or any "instruction" that stems from belief in a god, I think there's a problem -- for everyone. And, it's not only from theist politicians that real problems can stem. Would you want a fundamentalist pentecostal taking care of your sick child and deciding that the medicine wasn't needed because god was going to take care of it -- or not, and well, if not, that's in god's plan. There are *many* topics that can be discussed in this group. So, I hope we can all take advantage of this opportunity to bounce ideas off one another, to learn from one another, and to better prepare ourselves -- through our discussions -- to combat and defeat the madness.
This is "anti-theism."
It's a serious subject, as I think we all know who are here in this group. However, don't feel that you can't bring some levity into it... sometimes doing so can be the most poignant illustration.
