Hello from Russia
Hello thinkers!

I'm 29 and originally from Moscow, but now studying math in Dutch university. I found TTA podcast by pure chance on iTunes. And after listening to several episodes it has become one of my favourite shows.

It is sad times for all Russian atheists because current government agenda is to foist all sorts of religious nonsense to the nation. Church activists are on TV, trying to discredit any schientific thinking with their favourite worn-out arguments ("evolution is only a hypothesis", "chance of getting a DNA assembled correctly is null").

Thats as far as "official" religion is concerned.

Another big group of believers is "new agers". Without any deep understanding, they put Christian, Pagan, Mayan, Hindu myths into a blender and shake it well Smile
Lace it with words like "energy", "astral body", "quantum", "ethereal" - and bizarre cocktail is ready to drink.

I'm happy to see that TTA attracted many individuals who still value logic and reason. Together we shall stand up against human ignorance Smile

With my deepest respect to this community,
Cas.
