Hi everyone. My name’s Robert and I just joined the forums. I’m atheist and skeptic and tend to have a passion for all things science and religion in general. I write an occasional blog here http://mbireality.blogspot.com/ if anyone wants to check it out. Otherwise, I look forward to participating in the forums. Thank you.

Ah, good to see a new skeptic here.  smile  Enjoy yourself Robert.  You know, atheism is a small part of Humanism.  I read a good book about it once: The Philosophy of Humanism, Eighth Edition.  Check it out some time.

Oh, I’m well aware of what Humanism is. I’ve spent the last year on the board of directors for our area humanist chapter. But thanks for the book suggestion.

Welcome, Robert. Cool blog. I like your writing style and content. You seem to be in the ridicule-is-okay-when-deserved camp of skeptics. I’m there with you wink
