Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its 8700 good friends and discussion groups.
Among the groups, try visiting perhaps the busy group “ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Humans, Evolution, Religion.....” with its commonsense discussions. You will be welcome.
One is "Proud to be Atheist" (74 posts) seeing that atheists and humanists hold the intellectual strong ground compared with the pathetic superstitions of the god followers. Similarly, “Religion is aberrant, atheism is truth” (44 posts).

Hi Colin! Welcome! I'm Kris from Queensland. Great to have another Kiwi on board! Aussies and Kiwis gather here in the Aussie, Kiwi and South Pacific Atheists Group. We have many members who were formerly Christians so please feel free to post there (or, indeed, anywhere on the site!) and ask whatever questions you like. We're here for education, support and friendship. Whatever we can do to help.
