This Group is specifically for those who prefer to apply Critical Thinking rather than follow blind faith, those that are natural Sceptics, and true Atheists.

The mental process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating information to reach an answer or conclusion. 


Inclined to question the truth or soundness of accepted ideas, not easily convinced.


The disbelief in the existence of god or gods. From the Greek, atheos - a 'without', theos 'god'.

This Group is to all intents solely for those that fall into the above three definition areas. It is not a place for Non-Atheists to debate with Atheists, rather it is a secular meeting place and for those of a like-mindedness to discuss freely their thoughts and ideas pertaining to these things in an atmosphere of acceptance, camaraderie, fellowship, and mutual respect. It is to protect these ideals that membership in this group is either by invitation or by approval.

In regards to your last wall message RaiB and in regards also to the peace of the group, I agree that it should go forward in the spirit it was started in. As you stated the original group is here with its members intact, so let us go forward with the group and continue to keep it as good as it has been - Alannah

Comment by Pagan Trillanie yesterday

As admins we do not have that ability to do so. We have the ability to close a discussion and remove comments from threads only. We cannot remove a thread or a comment from the wall except our own. 

Comment by Alannah on Wednesday

At the request of another party, myself and Pagan have removed our posts and have taken this to email with RaiB to sort this out. A PDF copy of the conversation has been retained if needed by anyone.

Comment by David on Tuesday
Hello all. I am on line acquaintances with pagan and Allanah. I have been absent b/c I am going thru a divorce involving my two children. One is developmentally delayed which means I have been unable to get a diagnosis for him but able to get him speech and physical therapy. I have been recently been accused of unimaginable crimes in an attempt to block me from seeing my children. This is bouncing across my email and much more drama than I am experiencing currently. Just my two cents.
