Salutations (again)
« on: July 27, 2015, 10:05:30 PM »
I participated in this forum under the same name for a little over a year from the end of 2006 through 2007 (and maybe into 2008). I’ve been a little busy since then, but I was curious if I could sign in using my old name the other day. It appears there is no longer a record of me ever being here before on the forum from that time, so I had to open a new account. About the only record I could find anywhere online was on the WAYBACK Machine, where I took this WWGHA archived image screenshot below the other day. One of the differences is it used to be “karma” points we got back then (now, it looks like it’s “Darwins”). I guess I didn’t do too badly with 110 positive points and only 3 negative out of 137 posts. Oh, well,  it’s only castles in the sand, after all.

Anyone still here from around then?

2006-2007 would be the old forum, all members on this one from that one (who joined) joined in 2008. But this one is dying, too because the owner (Brain) acts like the Christian god, except Brain actually exists...

I think.

I'm new/old here too, but don't really know how to use forum type sites.

I remember the old forum was starting to have some problems about the same time I last drifted off, and some people from here started another forum called the Atheist Think Tank. I joined that one, but I got too busy to post anywhere for a while.

I think everyone is going to Facebook now and forums are having a hard time staying alive. One of the things I don’t like about FB vs. forums is that whatever you post on FB might as well disappear forever after a few days.

Anyway, I remember HAL and Screwtape and some of the others that are still showing up in the "information zone," but that area looks like it might be pretty old now as well.

I think I might remember you, AtheistsMeow, but that might just be one of those false memories I sometimes seem to have.

I found me on the old site, took me awhile, though:



My karma's about the same (average wise).

Yeah, NAM, you must have come on about half a year or so after I left.

Welcome back, Apriori Arkhai. We're a fairly small community here, it's true, and there have been issues (as Nam noted) keeping it going. It'll be sad if / when Brain lets it die off.

Hope to see you and AtheistsMeow around.

Live a good life... If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. I am not afraid.
