Hi from the UK
OK - go gentle with me - I'm sorta new to this forum stuff.
Lifelong atheist (well, from about the age of 5 or 6 - made my dad SO proud) and possibly a third generation one at that, although I never knew my grandad. Have produced 3 more 4th generation atheists/ rationalists (which makes me very proud of my kids that they grew up with BS detectors working at full gain).
In my fifth decade now, and trying to get round to do something active to help promote rationalism and independant thought in the world. Call it enlightened self-interest and an indirect way to look after my genetic heritage. Reduce the amount of dogma in the world = reduction in conflict - right?
greetings to all from the UK.
