Greetings, from "newbie" to ATS members. My username is my actual middle name given by my parents who had Acadien or commonly called "Cajun" ancestry. My formal education is in the philosophies of religion, primarily world religions. I also study doctrinal and denominational differences in American religions and their origins. No, I am not a "preacher". I am here to learn, if I can contribute "facts" I will do so. Thank you for the opportunity to learn, as Daniel J. Boorstin said "The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance - it is the illusion of knowledge".

Hello LaGrande,

Welcome to ATS; I liked your quote "The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance - it is the illusion of knowledge". from Daniel J. Boorstin. Even though I am unaware of him that quote speaks volumes.

I look forword to your posts.

Let me welcome you into the commonality known as ATS. It is with great amusement that I christen you an ATS'er after such an extensive time on the banks peering into the watercourse so to speak.

I only hope that we, as a community, can live up to the great expectations placed upon us, and every other tenderfoot constituent, that sets mouse and cursor upon the pilgrimage to "contradict unenlightenment" (DENY IGNORANCE).

With that I bid Godspeed to you and yours ATS. May we encounter one another again my friend in benevolent banter as we deliberate conspiracy topics!

- One Man Short!
