Hi to Jerry Mesner in Albuquerque. Welcome to this great meeting place with its rational people who recognise religion for the superstition and fraud that it is --- and that God and gods are nothing but fictions inside people's heads.

Terry Meaden
originator of the busy discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 250 discussion topics.

We invite you to come and see, and to make good new friends.
