RE: I'm new! Is this a good site?
Benvenuti!

Someone looking for answers through sincerity will find this to be a very educational and embracing site. And if someone ticks you off, just block them, kinda like half my family and friends do to any non-Catholic on Facebook.

Check out my now-defunct atheism blog. It's just a blog, no ads, no revenue, no gods.

You see i'm not atheist i'm agnostic and i fear that may not be accepted, but i'm only 20 i need my time to "Think" as i haven't lived to long yet.
I figured i'd just drop in and tell you i'm a newbie because whelp there isn't much else to do other then get to know some of you maybe chat?
I'd enjoy that as new people new environment, i only hope kindness is upon this site iv'e been so so many bad places.

Well, this is sort of the bottom of the barrel for atheists forums, in my opinion. It can get nasty and aggressive real quick, a sewage almost. It's my cup of tea; my idea of a good time.

But if you're looking for something more substantive, there are far better places to explore, such as rationalskepticism.org. Though heavily moderated, it keeps everyone in check, and doesn't allow emotions to run as wild as they do here.

RE: I'm new! Is this a good site?
this forum welcomes athiests, agnostics and theists, everyone is welcome.

but, I will say that some people find it difficult to deal with.

expect to have your ideas challenged, expect to meet some nice people and some assholes, expect that if make a claim that you will need to be able to back it up. expect when you state an opinion that others might challenge it and maybe ridicule it.

We have a global group, so english might not be someone's first language, we have all age groups, and all walks of life from artists, students, scientists, and everything in between.

and we have a few that are particular about grammar and spelling -

there are a couple taboo topics (see forum rules), but otherwise not much moderation except for spamming, etc. Cursing, name calling, etc are fairgame here.


enjoy!

Awww. Thanks for the kudos, Tom! Blush

Welcome to the insanity forum! This is a good place. I rarely go to other ones anymore. The other site I used to frequent was just pure arguing and nothing more.

You should like it here.
