Thanks for the welcome. I will enjoy my time here. I have a rational viewpoint and it is rare to find like-minded kindred people, so this step is necessary for me. I have debated and commented on blogs and news sites for ages, always on the side of reason. I am looking forward to communicating with others.
Thank you. My wife suggested I join a chat room for atheists and free thinkers. We listen to the "Atheist Experience" and "The Thinking Atheist" and get really upset, to put it mildly, at the theists. I am looking forward to chatting with people who are on the same wave length as us.
I have been debating with people who post on Yahoo and the Huffington Post for a couple of years. They aren't the brightest bulbs on the tree and I welcome, hopefully, a pleasant change to intellectually challenging people.
Glad I discovered this site. I am a long-time member of FFRF and a local Humanist group (Seattle area) but was looking for a viable online community. I will try to steer some of my local atheist friends to this site as well. I see that there are very few members from my community (Seattle area) - how long has this site been active? -Bill
