an old atheist, skeptic, and cynic from way back.  i used to be quite involved in online communities related to philosophy and science on various platforms over the years (a group of mine even hosted a cfi event or two in SecondLife a number of years back), and am thinking to get back involved again somehow.

my return to ‘active involvement’ is out of concern stemming from the apparent rise of evangelical/creationist/religious thinking in the US and around the world, which i think is also not unrelated to the nationalist, anti-globalist, and anti-intellectual trends we’re seeing in some contexts.  even though atheism seems to be also on the rise in most of the world, it seems to be more than counterbalanced by a movement towards fundamentalism and extremism on the religious side, and recent events seem to be bearing that out.

so, i figure it’s time for people who see things a bit more critically and rationally - and hopefully more calmly and reasonably - to start speaking up a bit more.

thanks for your time…
