For a long time of have been reading atheist style blogs, trawling forums like those found here, and generally learning more about the atheist movement around me. I suppose I’ve always been an agnostic or atheist but until recently I hadn’t tried to be part of the community. I think that I have realised that there are many more people who feel as I do and I would like to get my 2 cents in and learn from those others around me. CFI seems like a great place to start.

Hey SciGuy from another Canadian newbie. Are you from a fairly religious area like Alberta? Here in Quebec, folks are (thankfully) mostly atheists/agnostics and non-practicing Catholics. Life must be much more difficult for atheists/agnostics in places like the U.S.

We are getting overrun by Canadians! wink

Welcome to the CFI forums. I’ve learned a lot here, especially about critical thinking and analyzing my own arguments. Feel free to dive in and contribute to the discussions.

Lots of Canadians on here.  Is the CFI based in Canada?

Welcome,

from Toronto, Canada :D

And yes!
This is a great forum, I have learned a lot from some of the members on here, and have gained a wider perspective on some of the issues I am most opinionated about.

Happy posting!

I’m 6 hours from Canada and drink Molson beer. Welcome to all of the Canunks! A great site to share ideas.  Can’t wait to hear yours!

Ok, I get the binocs and they’re not glasses! I had NO idea that Bud and pilsner came from Czechslovakia. Good beer. Have you tried Moosehead? Or am I begging the question?

If it came down to some kind of Sophie’s Choice, yes, I would pick Moosehead over Molson.  grin My fist choice of a Canadian beer, though, would probably be Sleeman—that is, had I no other selection available to me. There are also a few local breweries—like the Steam Whistle in Toronto, for example—that will always be my preferred choice over Molson or Labbat.

As for Czech beers, usually available at our Beer Store or the LCBO, my favourites are Budweiser (sold as “Czechvar” in North America), Staropramen (a lager from Prague) and Kozel. Except for the name, the American Bud has obviously nothing to do with the Czech Budweiser. Buy a bottle of Czechvar to see what I mean.
