Hello Heathens
Hello Heathens
Gooday eh,
Thought I'd say hello before posting or replying to any thread. 
I'm not new to atheist forums but it's been a few years since I've participated. While I have aged, sold a business and retired not much in the world has changed really. 
I think I've signed up just to have a place to have my thoughts heard and criticized. I find the act of criticism to be a learning experience about myself and others as well. If it stops being fun, I'll just leave.
If god was real he wouldn't need middle men to explain his wants or do his bidding.
RE: Hello Heathens

Hope you join in and have fun!
"There remain four irreducible objections to religious faith: that it wholly misrepresents the origins of man and the cosmos, that because of this original error it manages to combine the maximum servility with the maximum of solipsism, that it is both the result and the cause of dangerous sexual repression, and that it is ultimately grounded on wish-thinking." ~Christopher Hitchens, god is not Great

Welcome!! Have a cheese sammich !!

And are you referring to atheist forums en masse, or this one in particular ?
If any email controversy impacted the election, it wasn't Russian hacking of the DNC and  John Podesta's email, it was Hillary Clinton's decision to have her own email server and the subsequent FBI investigation which raised all the same  questions  Hillary Clinton has justifiably faced for decades about her trustworthiness and honesty.

Welcome retiree!

Any criticism or only/mainly constructive?
God(s) and religions are man made and the bane of humanity.

RE: Hello Heathens
"Churches are becoming political organizations... It probably will not be long until the churches will divide as sharply upon political, as upon theological questions; and when that day comes, if there are not liberals enough to hold the balance of power, this Government will be destroyed. The liberty of man is not safe in the hands of any church." R. Ingersoll

I would say any objective criticism. From my prior experience I found I learned allot by having my ideas challenged. Helps battle confirmation bias.

It was Crunchy! (CrunchyFrog was my Quake 3 handle when I was into gaming) 
It was another site with "atheist" in the title. It was one computer ago and I can't recall the exact name.

RE: Hello Heathens
Seems like fine reasons for joining. Welcome and hope you have a good time.
Belief .. is the insistence that the truth is what one would .. wish it to be. The believer will open his mind to the truth on the condition that it fits in with his preconceived ideas and wishes. 

Faith, on the other hand, is an unreserved opening of the mind to the truth, whatever it may turn out to be.
