Greetings, Kathryn! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since Oct. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
Hello Kathryn and welcome to the network that is Atheist Nexus with its thousands of freethinkers like you who recognise that god is nothing but fiction and religions were devised to control impressionable superstitious people, very often starting with defenseless children.
