Hello from NYC :)

Hi there! :grin: I'm a long-time atheist/skeptic with a penchant for logic puzzles, fallacies and the like, a creative writer and constantly questioning. I also love The God Delusion even though Dawkins is kind of an ass.

Nice to meet you all! :popcorn:

Welcome to RatSkep.

Just for the record, Dawkins is a human, not a donkey-horse hybrid.

Ah, you're a USAian. Bloody colonials & weird pronunciations. You pronounce oregano as oreg-ah-no, and basil as bay-zil. Which is confusing enough, but you do at least spell them correctly. But ass really should be arse. Just saying. ;-)
