Introduction
« on: April 04, 2017, 08:13:37 PM »
Hello there. I'm new to the forum. I'm an atheist and have been since I was 5 or 6 years old. My family sent me to Catholic school, but it just never stuck.

It looks like you have a nice forum here. I'm looking forward to some good discussions.

Welcome.  Feel free to just dive right in.
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

Welcome to our little band of heathens.
E = Mc²

In the end, we are all standing in the dark,
trying to figure out why we are here.
But let us not choose one direction
without proof of where it is headed.

Check your pocket for matches
so we can observe and learn together
as fast friends and relative idiots.

Rock on, onyx!

This is nearly identical, to the second-rate onyx chess set that I had, when I was a teenager. Same shit-for-a-sculpt, but mine was a crisper black and white:




I just saw a report on CBS, about this guy, in Seattle, who has a collection of the biggest crystals on earth. It may not interest everyone, but I can appreciate it, because my dad was a rock-hound. We spent a lot of vacation time,  in my youth, in rock-shops, as we were travelling the US, visiting family. He would have had a rock, in his pants, if he had seen this guys museum:

Once was a rock/fossil hunter myself.  That is why my BS minor is in geophysics.

I'm not a real rock aficionado, but I like looking in rock and mineral shops. They had some really interesting ones in Tucson AZ when I went there on vacation once.

Howdy!

Howdy! back at ya.... I like greyhounds too. I have never had a greyhound, but I've had other breeds of sighthounds. I've thought about adopting a greyhound from time to time, but my lifestyle just isn't right for it now.

Before the rest of the forum you see, answer me these questions three.

1)  How many crunchy tacos have you eaten?

2)  How many soft tacos have you eaten?

3)  Why?
