Yep, I've changed to my real name. Well, part of it anyway.

We ain't half got it easy in Britain.

While perusing this 'ere site I've seen many posts and blogs discussing 'coming out' as an atheist. Initially I was a tad miffed by this. I knew that the situation in other parts of the world was much worse than it is here but I don't think I realised quite how ghastly it actually is.

I saw references to coming out as atheist and thought, 'You what? Coming out as gay was a big step, and came after much stalling, self-doubt and soul searching. It was a very big, and hard, step to… Continue

If you're in the UK please sign this. Children shouldn't be lied to!

"We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to withdraw support for Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm, and education focused, yet ardently creationist establishment."

A short film and petition on the Amnesty site: http://www.protectthehuman.com/tankman

It's staggering that this event has fallen so far from the public's attention. I think I've heard it mentioned twice in the last ten years.

Very, very short notice (I only found out about it this morning via this link a mate posted on Facebook.)

From the organiser's press release:

"The protest is taking place outside the Emmanuel Centre, 9-23 Marsham Street, London SW1P 3DW on 25 April 2009 between 13:00 - 15:00

Rates of Mental Health problems in the LGBT community (particularly in young gay males) are much higher than in the wider…

What a bizarre question. I think we call 'em 'pubs' 'round these parts.

Hi, nice to know I'm not the only person stunned by the religiosity of the states.

Thank you! Will add that link ASAP (meaning when I get off my lazy bum and actually get to it!).

Hello chap - can't possibly imagine how you came upon the name of 'Socket'.
Guess you're right about it being a tad clunky here, but the place seems young, so hopefully it'll grow out of it.
Amuses me that that some of our 'Bill Payers' are theists, kinda poetic justice there...

Welcome to the DNA Fangroup. Seems you are familiar with the material, so I'm sure I can't say anything witty you haven't heard before. Besides, I have the natural disadvantage of being a Yank....

The best way to introduce yourself is to make full use of the MY PAGE facility that you were given when joining Atheist Nexus.

Write the basics there, including maybe how you came to know that the explanations of atheism and atheists to explain the world are backed by deep commonsense, science, theoretical physics, etc. [And that by contrast, the religionists rely on hollow 'goddidit' answers and absolute belief in fake chronicles put together by Bronze Age desert dwellers at a time when most people were illiterate and independent thinking scarcely allowed].
Also, do visit the Nexus group ORIGINS where correct explanations for our atheistic world are provided and discussed.

Welcome to Atheist Nexus and the world of commonsense with its splendid discussions on matters fundamental to homo sapiens.
