Thanks for the kind welcome. As to how I "came to my senses," my story isn't that different than many others I have heard. I was raised in a fairly conventional home in a conventional setting. Growing up in South Florida in the 1950s, there really wasn't much occasion for challenging the status quo, and, frankly, I wasn't that adventurous anyway. I managed to coast through school getting good grades without getting much of an education. It was only after I had been out in the world and began to rethink much of what I had been taught that I also began to seriously question ideas about gods and religions. That started an evolution in my thinking that led me to investigate further and rekindled a long dormant interest in science. By the time I was 35 I was calling myself an "agnostic" and soon realized I also was an atheist. That was more than three decades ago, and in the time since I have been a much happier and more productive person than I ever was while under the influence of gods and religions.

That's the short version. Thanks again for the welcome.

This refers to your comment on my Avtar. In my young age there was no upper portion and slowly as per Darwin life grown.

Thank you for the kind welcome, Doctor. I noticed in your "About Me" info, that you referenced one of my favourite quotes from Mr. Charles Darwin (as to how ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge). What a gem of a quip.....clever, concise and undeniably true.

Hear in India we have small group named VIVEKPANTHI of Gujarati Language. We regularly meet and attend meetings and give free opinion on Hindu, Buddh and Jain Religion and their God theory. We enjoy being an Atheist, Rationalist. We publish magazine in Gujarati and same is available free of charge on net. We express our main opinion on Karma Theory and How widows, Poors and Dalits belive in Karma. More than 1/6 population of world (say more than 110,00,00,000 almost all belive in Karma theory, Aatma, Rebirth, and so on. Almost all know Charvak was first Atheist on this planet to freed from Religion and God.

लगभग २६०० साल पहले चार्वाक या चार्वाक वाद हो गया। च्रा‍र्वाक ने हमे सीखाया की खाओ, पीओ ओर मोज मजा करो। स्वस्थ रहना ही जीवन है। स्वस्थ जीवन से वीचार स्वस्थ होते है। धर्म या भगवान जैसी कोई चीज नहीं है। कर्म, पुनःजन्म, जाती स्मरण सब बकवास है।

Thank you for your greeting, Dr. Meaden.

I'm glad to have found a place where non-theists can seek refuge - especially with folks like myself living smack dab in the center of the bible belt.

Thanks for the welcome. I am excited about all of the documentaries we have in development. It's about time people start showing people like US in a positive light.

Thank you for the welcome! Yes I am beyond grateful to be out of the Jehovah's Witnesses as my experience with the group was horrific. Freedom is SWEET!

This is a great social network.

How do you handle having a discussion with people who during a lot of their conversations are about how this imaginary god controls so much in their lives (so they think)? Sometimes I can't control myself and just let them have it. Not in an insulting way but, I tell them "You control your life. You have the power". They just don't get it.
