Pleased to meet you, iaresee76! Pull up a chair. Just made a batch of egg salad, or I can do up a pastrami on multigrain rye.

I'm sorry, but your beliefs are much too silly to take seriously. Got anything else we can discuss?

Welcome, new guys buy the beer.

Care to talk a bit about atheism with us? Big Grin Tongue

Sorry to hear your marriage was the price of being intellectually honest with yourself.

It must have been a sign from Shakespeare himself to give me the inclination to stop writing about him in a paper du in 8 hours and check the forum. Just kidding! Welcome aboard.

Welcome, thanks for sharing Smile

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

> You're the first ex-JW I've met on any atheist website. I look forward to hearing about your experiences in and leaving that religion. The JW's usually come to my door twice a year.
