    Hi all

    Hope I haven't committed one of my usual social solecisms - I've just been and posted (twice!) without even introducing myself. Talk about fools rushing in...

    FWIW, besides a low-grade degree in English Literature, I have no qualifications/specialist subjects/areas of expertise whatsoever and most of what I post is based upon titbits secreted away in my (unfortunately fallible) memory. So reliability can be an issue too.

    I love science, though. And am what I call an atheist. For me that means, at its most basic, that I have no such thing (emotion/sense/transcendental bloomin experience/whatever) as faith.

    Am I also an atheist in the sense that the dictionaries, certain other atheists, and so many religious people would like to define? Do I claim: "I believe there is no god"?

    To that I simply reply - "Tell me what god is to you, and I'll tell you whether or not I believe that thing exists". It's the best I can do for now.

    Hope to have some good times here.

    cheer

    the sunshine warrior

    Hi, it sounds like you will fit right in, i don't think many members of the forum are highly qualified or even highly knowledgeable about most subjects, there are a few however who are very knowledgeable about most things and do teach the rest of us a great deal. Welcome to the forum.
