Good thing I'm not from there, because I know a bunch of pinko liberals who wear them.

Liberal has different meanings in the States and Australia. Over here Liberals are right wing as are the Republicans are in the States. Although lately, the thin line that separates the main political parties here has gotten even thinner.

Not quite. Our right wing is still left by American standards.

Hello to all. Another newbie stopping by to say hey.

Looks like a great place here. I found while looking up some physics topics. A long way from understanding it all but very interested.

Also I have been a fan as it were of James Randi for a while now.

As the name may suggest I like both the inane humour and slightly more intelligent stuff as well.

Look forward to many a happy hour spent on here.

Welcome buddy. There's plenty of both here. Humour as well as more serious stuff. Now, would you like a glass of fresh milked by Colonel's goat milk, or would you prefer a Millers Draft?

Thanks amb, I will pass on the goats milk thanks. I grew up on a farm and used to live on the stuff, nasty after taste :-) lol
The Millers sounds perfect though.

Just really started looking around and very much enjoying the Free-man-on-the-land thread. A couple of my friends are being hooked into it and I need the counter arguments to be able to suggest their possible errors hehe

Anyhoo, gonna enjoy that Millers and head out to work.

Hi all,
My name Alex. I read the forum for some time. I'd like to participate in it from now. My native language is Russian. I live in New York. Came to skepticism 2 years ago. Mostly listening "Rationally Speaking" and "Skepticality" podcasts. Impressed by reading book "Don't Believe Everything You Think" by Thomas Kida. Still reading "Flim-Flam!" by James Randi.
Look forward to talk in forums.

Hi everyone! Long time Randi fan, first time poster. Looking forward to actually participating in these forums rather than just reading them. I'm a big-time skeptic and a non-theist. I have recently started coming out of my skeptic/anti-Religion closet in my terrifyingly right-wing, anti-science, new-Earth, anti-gay, Christian community. So far it's been a mixture of terror, mind-boggling-ness, and just all-around fun. Nice to meet you all!

Welcome, The Sibelian, and good luck with your "coming out," though Southern California doesn't really sound like a terrifyingly right-wing place.

Have you met any other skeptics/atheists in your area? Meetup.com is a good way to find local groups and they can really be a support.

Yes, thankfully it's just SoCal... it could be a lot worse... but we do have Orange County, world-famous for its conservative reputation! My little world is full of incredibly right-wingers though. Plus I have a HUGE family out here and they are all incredibly conservative Christians.

I have recently been reaching out to skeptics and atheists in my area as opposed to just meeting them online... and I've never been happier! It's nice to be among people who think for themselves and embrace science and rational thought. I've been getting into more and more debates with conservative Christian friends and folks and I'm actually enjoying it. The more I argue with them the more I realize that (so far) they don't really know or understand what's in that holy book of theirs. I've taken some classes in college on the subject and I've read many books about the history of the church and the bible... and it's absolutely fascinating! It's amazing how much they DON'T want to hear about the history and content of their book and religion! What a way to live!

Thanks for the link! I'll check it out.

Hi! Name's Mike, I'm a playwright and screenwriter living in Los Angeles. I found randi.org through the Skeptoid podcast, which I've become a big fan of.

Hi there Mike.



So many times I've thought to myself while reading a thread, "You couldn't make this stuff up", so maybe you'll find a screenplay in here somewhere.

Hugh Jackman as 'Akhenaten' has a nice ring to it, I reckon.

I am new to this forum. I am not new to web forums.
I read Mr. Randi's essay on eSCEPTIC.
It is hilarious and wanted to say so.
I think I never laughed like that before.

I was thinking maybe I will never laugh like that again,
now you say it too, and I don't know how you know that.
It might sound threatening to someone on the edge.
What does it mean, if in case it means anything at all?

The rest of the stuff you say is riddle me ree, I don't
know how to receive it into my brain that came here
for rational interchange. Somebody is Australian?
Roo is baby kangaroo? Is any one there? Out there? Hello?

I would suggest that you go back a few pages and read some of the comments on the welcome post then you should get an Idea of whats going on, if after doing that you still do not have a clue, I will explain it to you.

Dammit! I want my cow's milk and water for a drink, so I'll just start bringing them with me. The vegetables and rabbit meat sounds tasty though. I have no idea what Kangaroo meat is like, so I'd love to try it. And... just pass a few of those apple and pecan pies over and no one will get hurt.

That said, I'm a totally random, in the sense that I prefer believing in determinism and that nothing is truly random, person who's ended up here. And by person, I'm just going to arbitrarily expand that description to any sapient species and use a dragon as my avatar, probably, for the fun of it. We'll see whether I last around here or not. If not... It's probably because I didn't have a steady supply of milk.

The church has used the artist community to push their mumbo-jumbo before. So, why not the government? Some of the shows out do seem like propaganda.
