Hi John Gahagan, and welcome to this friendly meeting place with freethinkers like you who recognise that gods are phoney and religion is a great fraud aimed at controlling vulnerable superstitious people, including especially defenceless children; and
how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and even longer.

Terry Meaden (academic; physicist; 60+; retired but never retired really)
founder of the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 280 discussion topics.
We invite you to join us and 1640 others.
