Greetings from Nova Scotia, Canada.
I'm very excited to find this site. I occasionally find myself in discussion with friends who describe themselves as being rabid theist's. Although I respect their right to their beliefs, we enjoy engaging in friendly debates on the subject of faith and all that it implies. More often than not, I have well thought out points and arguments that support my atheist views. Unfortunately these points come to me hours or days after our debates. I hope to engage in lively discussions with members of this forum and as a result find myself able to assemble pertinent thoughts and arguments that support my views.
It my firm belief that people who are committed to critical thinking are amongst some of the most interesting thoughtful people I have ever met. After spending an evening reading many post here, I'm confident that there many here who fit that description.
I am writing to you from Halifax, Nova Scotia which is one of Canada's prettiest and most vibrant cities.I have an interest in world history with an emphasis on the history of the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman empires. I enjoy sailing and sailboat racing andp retty much like to be on or around the ocean. ( I have yet to see anyone walking on the water)
My sincere greetings and best wishes to all.

Welcome to the forum. 

What are your thoughts in poutine? Chuckle

If successful see if they can also make it scratch and sniff.

Welcome, and I love your handle.  Should I assume you play chess?  You mentioned "I have an interest in world history with an emphasis on the history of the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman empires."  That should be interesting. Big Grin

Pigs flew, sheep sang cantatas and the pope appeared on Saturday Night Live.

And Steve posted something other than religious ravings.

Aah, the flag's fine.  Maybe we can take out the "God keep our land..." line in "O Canada" and sing about poutine instead.  (Or donair, or Caesars, or maybe Nanaimo bars.)

Can you imagine the flood of Rickles jokes if they did?

A friend came over for a visit last Thursday. I made poutine for lunch.  Big Grin
