My forum name here is the same as on Amazon, but I'm actually Richard Dalin, living in central NJ, retired, widower, two sons, one daughter-in-law, and two granddaughters (of whom I'm inordinately proud). Oh yes, one cat, Monster by name. Along with my brother, I'm a second-generation atheist, and we both passed that on to our children. I am what's commonly known as a strong or positive atheist in that my stand is "I believe no gods exist" rather than "I don't believe in gods." A minor distinction, to be sure, although many theists seem to think it's vitally important.

I hope to find interesting and stimulating discussions here.

Hi LLA, good to see you.

This is reminding me of the first day at college, do you know what I mean?
(Hey, someone I know!)

Enjoy life without goblue and I'll see you around.

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it. (G.B.Shaw)

Hey, Lifelong! I haven't been able to explore too much, but this place looks good.

Hi, Mary. This was recommended by several Mamazon posters, so I thought I'd give it a try.

RE: Hello everyone
I followed Dorsie's recommendation. Even if the shitheads show up, folks here say they're well-equipped to deal with them.
