As I said above I'm a militant atheist, have no sympathy with organized religion, and am skeptical of those who claim belief in anything supernatural. I'm a member of both the American Humanist Association and the American Atheist Association.
An 86-y. o. Londoner; retired 1992 from English and History depts at UMass; Cambridge BA & MA, Princeton MA & PhD; Indiana[masked], UMass[masked]; Boston Marathon in 1996; militant atheist; now at Applewood, an Amherst retirement community.
My first meeting--I'm delighted to begin to get know these like-minded people and think I can be a useful member of the group.
