"Looks like there's lots of good stuff in the Texas Democratic Party platform, notably calling for the overturning of Citizens United. I only took a quick glance at the beginning."

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.
