Hello to all

Unread post

My name is George Ricker. I'm the author of "Godless in America: conversations with an atheist" and host a related web site at www.godlessinamerica.com. The site contains quite a few original articles, a one-act play, links to short stories and even a few poems I have written. However, the real reason I'm here is that I have been an avid reader all my life. I love books and love talking (or writing) about books. I'm looking forward to participating in the discussions here. It's a bit of serendipity that I found you. This site is listed near mine on the "Atheist Best of the Web" site, and I noticed it when I was advised that my site had just been listed there and went to have a look. More to come.

GeorgeWelcome to the community. I've checked out your site and read several articles. The one entitled A disagreeable agreement I am especially fond of. Quote:By insisting we must "agree to disagree" my old friend terminated a discussion that might have led to better understanding between the two of us on such issues. The impasse won't end our friendship

Chris: Glad you like the site. A link would be most appreciated. Whatever you decide to do about that, I'm going to add a link to this site. I think the folks who visit my site might be interested in joining in the discussions here.

New book is out

Unread post

For those who are interested, my new book, mere atheism: no gods...no problem!, is now available for purchase at online booksellers and should soon be available for ordering at most brick-and-mortar bookstores.

I've posted information about places to order mere atheism in a separate thread.
