こんにちはエヅ! (Konnichiwa Ed!) Just answering your question (in that copyright thread of yours) as to what the Kanji/kana stands for in my profile. For the ミシガン those 4 kana symbols phonetically say: mi-shi-ga-n, so it should be obvious which U.S. state that is! For the カトリック教徒 phonetically thats: カ(ka) ト(to) リ(ri) ック(ku) 教徒 (kyouto). "Kyouto" just means believer, and ka-to-ri-ku is basically another cognate!
How are you? Good, I hope. I also hope you have noticed an invitation to the new group "the Stein Society." I noticed a few of your posts and thought that maybe you would enjoy working with me and a few others in investigating the claims of atheism and hopefully to develop reasonable arguements and possibily even engage in dialogue. I would really like to have the Stein Society become a very active group... but of course for that I need members! If you would like to join, please come to The Stein Society.
