I have a basic understanding of the separation of church and state, and I am a huge advocate.  It's why I joined ffrf.  I think people should be free to be religious or not.  I get why church/state…Continue

I'm trying to get all the members over to AN, but apparently it's a slow process.  If you're in the area, hopefully you can make it to the solstice  party this Saturday.  There should be quite a few people attending.  Our Meetup group has well over 100 members so they should be coming over soon.

I must have turned something off. I'm not getting new member notifications from SWiFT.

Welcome Jerry!

Kurt, thanks for the head's up. I'll check it out.
Akron, I LOVED "Intelligent Design on Trial."

Mojo. Bummer. "not available for streaming". Hey, did you ever see the Nova program "Intelligent Design on Trial"? That's what got me more involved in atheism.

Wednesday night on NOVA there's a repeat broadcast of "Musical Minds".  I highly recommend it.  It has some of the work of Oliver Sacks featured, if I remember correctly.  It's fascinating how human brains that may be considered 'defective' on some measures are 'genius' when it comes to musical talent and musical 'intelligence'.

Thanks AKron.  Appreciate the warm welcome.  Just took a stab at mojo's topic.  This group seems to be off to a pretty fast start!

Welcome aboard Mark! Join in a discussion if you'd like. I started one called "Living with religion in Southern Wisconsin", and I see mojo just started a new one called "Reconciling Science and Religion".

Five members and two topics. We're exploding here!

Thanks Kurt. And hello to everyone. Glad to be here!
