Hello, guys.

I am new to the forums and would like to introduce myself.

I'm a religious researcher.

I recently finished writing a book regarding religious matters, with a huge potential to cause a stir, and since I know that due to my proposal I will be attacked by fundamentalist zealots and blind believers, I'm working on building contacts with open minded people who could support me in this enterprise.

I’ll be honest with you, I’m not exactly an atheist. The reason why I’m here is because I do prefer an honest atheist than a hypocrite believer. It is impossible to argue with blind believers when it is about questioning religious dogmas.

I'll later start a discussion about my book. I'm trying to get it published.
Keep in touch if you feel interested. I have plans to give away the book for free in places like this forum.
Thank you!

PS: I've read the RULES and I know about the advertising restrictions. I DID NOT COME HERE TO ADVERTISE NOR TO SELL ANYTHING!

Welcome aboard. Looking forward to getting to know you. Would you mind giving us a bit of real world background please because this is where common ground is formed and without common ground you're just a Turing machine  :grin:

So tell us what aspects of religion you're questioning which will set the fundies raving!
 Nice avatar BTW, though I can't say as much for Tank's new one, :)

Seen the pic before (can't remember where, used to have a book on The Art of Discworld - maybe there?) Doesn't really look like how I imagined him.

Why say you want to share something and then go "I'll tell you later". It's that old joke that middle schoolers tell, "how do yoy keep an idiot busy
 I'll tell you tomorrow."
But, uh...well there it is.

Write on both sides of a piece of paper, "How to keep an idiot occupied for hours, PTO"

Doesn't look like Sam Vimes on the cover of Snuff, at least not on my copy.

This person is posting all over the internet at atheist fora. So far, its results seem to be vaporware. I've not seen anything more than this same copypasta elsewhere, at three other sites I visit. We'll see what comes of it. Guess I could check more sites and see which one bans it first.  8)

Thank you for brining this up.
