Hello, guys.

I am new to the forums and would like to introduce myself.

I'm a religious researcher.

I recently finished writing a book regarding religious matters, with a huge potential to cause a stir, and since I know that due to my proposal I will be attacked by fundamentalist zealots and blind believers, I'm working on building contacts with open minded people who could support me in this enterprise.

I’ll be honest with you, I’m not exactly an atheist. The reason why I’m here is because I do prefer an honest atheist than a hypocrite believer. It is impossible to argue with blind believers when it is about questioning religious dogmas.

I'll later start a discussion about my book. I'm trying to get it published.
Keep in touch if you feel interested. I have plans to give away the book for free in places like this forum.
Thank you!

PS: I've read the RULES and I know about the advertising restrictions. I DID NOT COME HERE TO ADVERTISE NOR TO SELL ANYTHING!

Hi! I guess the best thing is to start a whole lot of threads on issues that interest you.

Hello, Gabriel Gnosi.

Your denial that you are not advertising anything would be more convincing, had you not copy-pasted the exact same missive in several other forums during the past few hours.

Just the same, discuss away. By a happy coincidence discussion is the main purpose of Secular Café. I for one am interested in hearing your proposal, though in true inductivist turkey style I am not all that confident that I will think of it as highly as you most likely are. But you could surprise me.

Perhaps, as Hermit suggests as a possiblity, you're just throwing stuff against various walls & seeing where it sticks... Not necessarily an issue if you actually follow up and interact with us locals in good faith (so to speak :D ).

In the hopes the latter is indeed the case, Welcome to SC! :wave:

I have enjoyed listening to casual as well as formal debates posted at YouTube. Maybe one of the things you'll do here is to link to some discussions at YouTube that seem enlightening to you, if that something you are into.

Mmmm, o-kay. Tell us the name of your book, and state your proposal as concisely and clearly as possible.

This place does not seem to fit him. Hermit did it.

ETA: And yeah, he's hit whywontgodhealamputees with the same copypasta now. At thinkatheist where he introduced himself with the same paste but under the name of Adrian Ferrer. In a subsequent post he announced slightly less cryptically
I`m the kind of religious researcher that started reading the Bible and got shocked with so much absurds performed by god, but instead of denying Christianism because of this, I searched for an explanation... and I found one... a very strong one.
I'm already not missing him, though following his antics does amuse me.

The Australian forum seems to have struck him off the membership list. Google no longer lists his contribution there.

It is the same thing, prophet, profit. Some get it, some don't. It is not guaranteed. ;)
