Welcome to Atheist Nexus----the world of reasoning, rational sense, and good friends.
Terry Meaden (academic, see My Page)
Founder of the busy science discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Humankind, Religion, Darwin..." We seek to understand the mysteries of the universe, and how life and humans and religion and everything began.
There are lots of good discussion topics and many video films including ten lectures from Stanford University on evolution and Darwin.
This is a fast growing site with many groups and a wide variety of people. I hope you like it here as much as I do. As far as puratory goes, I'm pretty sure it's located here in Ohio:-) Or maybe it's hell because it's freezing over bigtime!
