Slumberjack checking in...
Greetings fellow travellers,

I have decided to join this forum out of curiosity, not to try and preach at or convert anyone, but to hear what atheism has to say, and perhaps to discover why it is so popular at the moment. I do find theist/atheist/deist etc debate very interesting. I am a lover of science and have a growing interest in philosophy (though my knowledge of it is rather poor). I thought it would be interesting and intellectually challenging to join a community such as this where my own belief and understanding of the world are likely to be challenged.

I look forward to meeting you all,

S

There is no evidence for any of the gods mankind has created from its own fertile imagination. That includes yours.

That's pretty much it.


Welcome.

Welcome to the party.
Even if the open windows of science at first make us shiver after the cozy indoor warmth of traditional humanizing myths, in the end the fresh air brings vigor, and the great spaces have a splendor of their own - Bertrand Russell

Welcome.

Really? How disappointing. I was hoping for so much more.

Thank you all for your welcome replies.

Welcome Enjoy the forums.

As for expecting more, atheism is just the lack of belief in god(s), nothing else can be inferred about atheists, either morals, political stances, food choices, despite the fact that many religious persons like to attribute several (mostly negative) properties to us.

For what one hopes never meets the expectations of reality.
