Religions beginnings

Hey, Who wants to start a new religion?While studying for my B.Sc. I had to take a course called natural disasters. I noticed that the biggest natural disasters coincided with the start of one of the major sects in Christianity.Pentecost was the 1906 San Francisco fire.

Welcome to Atheist Nexus, Jotham, I am happy to see another Newfoundler joining us. With your training in environmental science, perhaps you can help us learn to live with climate change and create a healthy, happy, harmonious society.
