Hello
Hello..my name is Ari. Nice to be here! I have an unusual situation. Religion never played much of a role at all in my life. In fact, I live in an area of the US where it doesn't come into play at all for most of us .That is a good thing. However, I find that events happening in the US at large, with the high level of religious fervour in a lot of those places, has a negative impact on those of us here. For instance, the national media is always throwing out how pious thre rest of the country is. Particularly during National elections. At times I actually wish New England were a separate country. Thanks for letting me vent my frustrations. Ari

RE: Hello
Welcome to TTA! Yeah, it's a nice place to exchange stories and experiences, as well as kick around ideas.

Definitely know what you mean about the direction the national dialogue is taking.

It could be worse, Ari... you could be like me, an atheist in the deep south! Undecided

Hi Ari - glad to have you here.

Welcome to the forum. Smile


If it is ok with you Ari - unless you are wanting to discuss something in need of personal support - maybe a Mod can move this to the Introduction forums?

Hi Ari. Welcome to the forum. Get the Bostonians to hold another tea party and join Canada.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.
