Looks like I forgot to introduce myself when I joined the group.
I am 28 and just moved to Delaware. I have a BA in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, an MS in Biomedical Sciences, and am working on a PhD in Marine Microbial Ecology. Yes, I love science and school :) Just starting to write my doctoral proposal- very exciting and so much to be done!
I've been a non-believer for as long as I can remember. My parents taught me Hinduism growing up but I can't remember ever believing in god/gods. Religious stories make for excellent fiction though, all that blood, gore, violence, betrayal, magic, etc :) Incidentally, I never believed in Santa Claus either, although I am retaining hope of one day finding a Prince Charming!
I have been married (at 21) and divorced (at 24) before and I guess I was just too young then to be settling. I have no children and I am undecided as to wanting them in the future. My age range for date-able men ranges from 3-4 years younger than me to 30 years older. Don't ask me why, I just like intelligent, active men and age never seems to factor in. Interests include: science, science fiction, human space travel, astronomy, physics, cooking, hiking, traveling, reading, and so on.
I will be adding more pictures to my profile page but I have a couple on there so far. Don't be shy in terms of contacting me! I like having discussions in general.

Wow, I wish I knew that much about biology. I might have studied it in college, but I don't like to cut things open. I do have a friend who intended to major in biology but ended up getting into marine geology, but I don't know if he's doing anything with it. His dad is a professor of biology at the University of Rochester in Rochester, NY.
Haha, I hated cutting things open and so I left animal biology. It seemed so cruel! I work with marine bacteria now, they don't care and there are plenty more of them ready to take over if a few are killed ;)
That's cool. You and he must have studied some of the same things. That area of expertise always makes me think of articles I've read about the ecosystems they're discovering around thermal vents. Fascinating stuff, especially to think that anything could survive at such extreme temperatures.
Hey, I'm 46, formerly of Manhattan and now Toronto, looking to hang with more atheist friends and possibly a guy, too. I'd love an atheist group that just goes to dinner, movies, hiking, cycling, whatever--but you're with a group of fellow a-theists. That'd rock!
Hi! I'm Adrienne (more commonly called Dri). I'm 17, nearly 18, and living in Chicago. I have a ton of pictures on my profile, but the latest one I have is this one. But I am a nice person, if I do say myself, and easy to get along with. I'll be going to college in the fall in Florida, and I'll be moving to Fort Myers in September.
