Welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forum.

Our revels now are ended. These our actors, | As I foretold you, were all spirits, and | Are melted into air, into thin air; | And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, | The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, | The solemn temples, the great globe itself, - Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, | And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, | Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff | As dreams are made on, and our little life | Is rounded with a sleep. - Shakespeare

Welcome, Palacios! I also have ADD, and luckily I'm getting treated for it as well, so that has really helped me a lot recently.

If you like to learn about science and things, you may like to watch some videos on YouTube by excellent atheists such as Thunderf00t, philhellenes, etc.

Hey!  Buenos dias!  Que

Hey!  Buenos dias!  Que tal?

I just ran out of Spanish. 

Except for the swear words.

Where in Mexico?  I grew up in Yuma, AZ and I have been to some of the border towns - San Luis, Algodones, Mexicali/Calexico, Nogales. 

I'm now in Portland, OR which I think is much nicer than the desert.  Though lately there has been too much rain.

Adding to that list I would say that Aronra is up there as well. His Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism series is excellent.
