Greetings to my fellow skeptics and freethinkers.
My name is Frederick Green but you probably can see that by my screen name. I have been an atheist for as long as I can remember but, to be honest, my general skepticism did not bloom until I was well into my 20s. There was a time when I explored parapsychology and read books about the Bermuda Triangle but I am feeling much better now, thank you. I am now well into my 40s with two young and amazing kids - Both in the talented & gifted program (that is the full extent of my bragging, I promise).
I was active in the skeptic and freethough community during the late 90s but drifted away for several years. Now I am back. With a background in electronic communications and IT my professional credentials may not match up well against others in the community. My strength lies in my ability to take a complex subject and explain it in clear, easy to understand terms to my freinds, relatives, and coworkers. Sadly I find more and more that I must explain to people the very basics of the scientific method - Something which one once had to grasp in order to graduate from high school.
Looking forward to many lively discussions. I rarely if ever use ‘smileys’ or ‘emoticons’ relying instead on my grand eloquence. We’ll see how well that goes.
P.S. - Thank you to whomever installed the spelling checker on this forum.
