Hi guys and gals, new member here and hello from Liverpool UK. This is my first blog and hopefully not my last with you likeminded folk. I probably had my first atheist thoughts at around age 9, when the Sunday church routine seemed to be more about watching who put in the collection plate than anything else! I realised at that point that faith alone did'nt pay the bills although in a believers eyes , " If the Lord is with you you are eternally rich "!.
That was the start of my path to realistic enlightenment and has provided me with a lifetime of entertainment at the hands of all " religions ". If I had any cell in my body that may have held any remaining belief in such matters, then that disappeared in Feb 2005 after watching my father lose his life to cancer. Surely any divine supremo would'nt let that happen would they?
Anyway, in his memory I shall continue to argue the point of atheism and keep winding up anyone who tries to "spread their message" in my direction!
The only invisible force I recognise is nature itself , unpredictable, untouchable and unbeatable. Science is the only real way to make us question and try to understand the world we (currently) live in . Long live research!!
