Hello good folks of the IS community.

I am a lurker from Mexico as of a few weeks ago and decided to join. A lot of the stuff here I can enjoy and maybe even intelligently respond to

I grew up in the era of In Search Of and other paranormal type shows and back then started wondering when all the promises of groundbreaking proof and solid evidence was going to happen. 40 years later a bunch of new faces and a billion new theories have come out and I still watch that ghost and UFO crap shows waiting for a tidbit of solid evidence.
It has not come yet. But the scammers have gotten lots of practice meanwhile.

Thank you for allowing me here.

Hi 8enotto. A tardy welcome to the forum. I've already seen your posts around on a number of threads and it's great you decided to join and contribute.
Cheers!

Smile Have been a member, but have not posted much

Hi all,

I have been a member of ISF for a couple years, but I joined and then shortly stopped coming back. I plan to visit atheistic and skeptical websites, including forums, more often in the coming months, so perhaps I can be more active on this one. I will pick one or two good forums on which I feel at home and like what is said, and then I will probably leave the rest.

I hope to reach theists with the message that atheists and other skeptical people are wonderful, compassionate, vibrant and fun members of society. I am looking for inspiration along those lines.

Have a great day, and thanks for reading!

Hi Jeff. Hopefully the forum(s) you choose to stick with are ones where you both like and dislike some of what is said, so you can have a variety of useful discourses. I hope to run into you around the site. Cheers!

Apart from the Ship of Fools which I joined on the recommendation of The Atheist - where I have the same avatar, slightly different name)
I also belong to the Religion and Ethics forum, a spin-off when the BBC religious message boards closed down.
There are some very smart posters there, plus some who are not!
