I am new to A/N -- haven't even been here a week yet -- and the groups that I have joined so far do not have a great deal of activity, but this one is different, and I am happy to become a member. Thanks for bringing the group to my attention.

Thank you Dr.Terence,
For such a warm welcome.
I just wish I could find critical rational thinking people in real life!
But I thank you again, so good to be free of relgion and the nonsensical ridiculousness of it all - free at last

Thank you so much, Dr. Meaden! It's nice to actually talk with someone who understands "living with cancer!" I must admit thatI've not been as open with it as I know I should be.

Funny. I went to Catholic school thru 8th grade. The nuns were good teachers. One fine day in choir practice, I realized I didn't /couldn't believe it. Both sides of my family are fervent, instinctive, untroubled Believers.

I found my stance in junior year HS, w/the help of a terrific English & French teacher.

Everybody feared Mrs. Rigsby but me. The sternly attractive Southern lady took a shine to me. Loaned me books. Assigned me college-level term papers. Introduced me to Camus.

I developed my own ontology. From which I've never wavered, even in the worst of VN and the worst to come.

I'm an Agnostic Existentialist, Camus-Kafka Division. The Absurd. Sisyphus. The Void. The Frightful Mystery.

I know nothing, believe nothing (except the US Founders and their bequests to us). Science keeps finding new horripilating mysteries. Yet I go on.

One night my company was deep in the jungle. Surrounded by an elite NVA Regiment. We were surely going to die.

We, mostly boys 18 to 22, solemnly shook hands and said Farewells to each other. Went to our emplacements to die.

Obviously didn't happen. My best guess is the NVA thought it was a ruse, a trap. Maybe it was, with us as bait.

Never thought about God or the afterlife, just Camus.

That's my little story. Best -- Rich

Goodness, thank you so much for your warm welcome! This place looks fantastic, and I'm very glad to be part of this community :-)

I'll definitely be checking out the groups you mentioned. There's so much to see! It'll probably take me a little while to become more familiar with Atheist Nexus.

Again, thank you so much for helping me settle in!

Thank you for the warm welcome. Sorry it took me so long to respond, it's been a busy summer!

Thank you. It's good to meet you. Until I started watching the, "Atheist Experience", show, I felt quite alone lol. I even disabled my facebook account because I was offending too many people with silly anti religion posters I made up. I will be posting them here when I have more time. They are comical, but they do poke fun at the absurdity of all religions, I will become more active when I am not so busy.. Thanks for the welcome Doctor!

Thanks Terry.  It looks like there is a lot to see here.  I don't know why it took me 2 and a half years to find it.  Thanks for the heads up on that group.  I will check it out!

Thanks for the hello!  Not from a hardcore religious background, but it has always just seemed the way.  THE GOD DELUSION made me see the light.

Thank you for the welcome. I'm still trying to find time to explore, life is so busy :-/
