Hi RationalSkepticism my name is TJ, not the AmazingAtheist but equally amazing. I'm a fairly new atheist activist who design presentations aimed at analyzing religious moral diagnosis, exposing Biblical immorality, and encouraging critical free thought. While lacking supernatural encouragement, I illustrate how awe and wonder can be experienced via humanistic lifestyles which are the foundation for religion dogmatism.

Many religious people reject all other possible deities ever conceived by human and cultural civilization, however, I've managed to take one step further. If the aforementioned is your train of taught, then prepare yourself to dive into the critical philosophical journey with Secular Atheist.

I would like to post links to my YouTube channel, however, I would like to verify if self promotion on this forum isn't a sin. Please let me know if self promotion is transgression of forums law.

Welcome to the forum.

More than a few members have links to their blogs in their sigs. If you have a detailed explication of an argument you are making or position you hold in another location on the web, I see no reason anyone would be so pedantic as to insist you retype it in full here.

The only conceivable problem would be that not all members can access video content all the time. I'll have to wait a few days before I can check your stuff out, for example.

But I will.

I actually got asked that question when I visited Ireland. By some Buddhists.

Welcome aboard.
The problem with fantasies is you can't really insist that everyone else believes in yours, the other problem with fantasies is that most believers of fantasies eventually get around to doing exactly that.
