AHA! I thought I saw your name in a post here, as I was poking around corners and peering under curtains. But I wasn't positive it was you, hence the question mark.

Good to see you again. Wink

Plus a handful of less frequent posters, and a whole host of less savory characters (Doctor, voiceoftruth, etc.)

Doubtless, I've left some out. Who?

Yippie Rabinowitz

And a few more I can't recall.
Wow. It really is a lot of people put together.

I am an atheist with an apatheist leaning, which essentially means that I believe that the existence of god(s) is irrelevant.

I never knew there was a term for believing that the existence of a deity is irrelevant. I'm one of the few forum theists, but I think I fall under this same category with you. I don't believe that anyone needs to believe in G-d and life won't change based on what you think. G-d either exists or does not exist and if you needed to know for sure, that information would be plainly apparent.

Hoo hoo - hi - you might want to check out ignosticism.

Hi Ada. Smile So happy to find you here. I'm enjoying the freedom from the few single subject motor mouths that Dr. H named. I really miss Django Unhinged, Brunumb, Wolf, and Happy Skeptic, and have a feeling that Abigail O. might be the .2 version of an old friend already here.

I like your name and avatar. The flower on the right looks like a muppet laughing. Big Grin

It's very nice and free here, with great new people to meet. I just wish I had more time to post, but that will come with familiarity.

I'm 'Rockblossom' almost everywhere online except for Amazon. I joined Amazon over 20 years ago when they "preferred" us to use our real names (or else some things, like creating tags, didn't work for us) rather than creating a user name. I just never bothered to change it.

I have different avatars on different sites, but they are all photos taken around my house. The one I have here now is spring crocus in my front yard. (I always liked the name 'crocus' because so many of the blooms look like open-mouthed frogs.) Some of my favorites are of the wildlife that frequent the back yard.

Ah yes, it would be good to have Michael over here. Son of Flintstone I haven't seen around in a long time; wasn't sure he was still with us. Ras P. is new to me.

The others I see more often when I'm slumming in the religion forum, but you're right, they have been periodic visitors to the atheist side as well.

I do hope most of them decide to make the switch. The old forum is about 80% dead at this point.

BTW, I've been spending a bit of time in some of the music fora. While there are deletions over there, too, their threads aren't nearly as riddled with holes as the atheist and religion fora. I begin to suspect that Amazon sees religious discussion as something of a "problem child".

"Ignosticism"; I like that. It takes a very common and perennial theist/nontheist argument theme and neatly encapsulates it in a single word. Smile

I also suspect as much; hence the other question mark. Wink

But it's not for me to blow anyone' s cover, and especially not with Amazon.
