Hello from Australia

#1  Postby nullnvoid » Jan 15, 2013 4:48 am

Hi all,

Australian atheist here - I'm a life long atheist, fortunate to have been brought up outside the church. I work as a web developer for a small company that punches above its weight.

I've only just discovered this site - looks interesting. I know a few others here through other forums.

Fan of various blogs and writers, especially the incomparable Hitch. Just finished "Arguably". Other than Hitch, I rather enjoy the atheist experience hosts, Seth from the thinking atheist and all the godless bitches.

I'm currently trying to build a forum to the point where it's a more open and friendly place to discuss social justice issues than atheism+.

Cheers,
Null

May I suggest a gun thread? Content is not that important. Just pick a side.

Welcome to Ratskep. :cheers:

Consistently 32/33 but the trades are there - it's brutal just after a rain but the monsoon is overdue.
Tableland is a bit cooler. It's also very nice in the rain forest on the mcycle.
