Welcome to the official pencil-neck geek’s lounge.

I take it that you are a deist from your user ID, Correct? If so we do have a lot in common, except for our metaphysics. The fist cause argument to me is invalid, seen.

Welcome, P-D.  You’ll find a wide variety and level of thinking and beliefs among the members here.  I’m sure you can find some who agree, some who disagree, and many who are willing to discuss your ideas.

Welcome, philo deist.  Glad to have you here.  Skepticism is a good thing.  Many of us are skeptics, as well as atheists, freethinkers, humanists, etc etc

Welcome PD,

Please explain the sentence,  “I am open to freethinkers, but am still a little skeptical”.
Skeptical about what?

See, that’s the power of the Administrator.  We mere moderators can’t change sigs.  LOL

Welcome! Deism was the last stop for me on the journey from Fundamentalist Christianity to atheism/humanism. Lots of Deists are just what I was—spiritual travelers who eventually jettison god altogether. Of course, no one here will try to force that choice upon you and if you choose to remain a Deist, you will still be welcome. Looking forward to some good discussions with you!

I am sorry about the color, and thank you for changing it. And thanks to you freeinky, as I am seem to be on a similar path. We shall see. Also, sorry I have not been on here in a while, as my job is a little hectic at this time.
