Hello all,My name is Dara I am a 38 yr old widowed mom of 2 from NJ.I was raised Lutheran but realized very early on that I didnt believe what everyone else around me did,I continued to fake it for years or just stay quiet on the subject until my husband died and my daughter was diagnosed with a brain tumor and I was bombared with "god doesnt give you more than you can handle".."when god closes a door he opens another " blah blah blah...I finally spoke up and let everyone know exactly where I stand.Mt family and friends are ok with it but I still havent come out openly to aquaintences like other parents because I am affraid my kids will be left out of things.
My husband has been gone 3 years now and I am ready to move on but it is hard to find someone who isnt religious hoping to meet friends and maybe more on here :) As I mentioned I am a single mom ,I have 2 girls aged 4 & 7 I love movies (prefer indies but open to all genres) I love music (not rap and country though) I like browsing bookstores with a big coffee,going to the beach etc.
I try to compensate for the lack of community as a life long non-church goer too. My two kids are 3 and 8. I tried going to a Universal Unitarian fellowship. Their credo is "accept all" so there are a lot of atheist, agnostics there, but it still felt..... fake to me. I think we are in need of a decade of coming out for atheists. Then we can band together in public!
Hi there folks, stuck in the bible belt and woefully tired of losing people I love to religion or some other manner of fantastic thinking. Nice to find that a site like this is around and I look forward to meeting you all.
Hello, I'm Joe B. and I'm 29. Damn this is starting out to feel like AA. I'm Joe and I'm an evil atheist. Well I live in a small town in NW Arkansas where my kind is very rare. I'm viewed as a curiosity by my friends, who make it their mission to change me whenever they get drunk or stoned. I manage a small business and work about any job that comes my way. Over the last couple years I've also worked as a DJ and as a process server. I love discussing philosophy, current events, religion or damn near any other subject that pops into my head. I also love music. My ipod is filled with any type of music you can think of and I'm getting ready for Wakarusa, which has moved to my hometown this summer. I am also a full-time student and ex-Army.

I have tons of interests some since childhood and some newer. Feel free to ask me anything =)
Hello. I'm Brian. I'm 31, live in Modesto, CA. Never been married (and probably never will since I don't need the state to sanction my relationships) with no kids. I like music, movies, mostly city things. My interests include history, philosophy, MMA (UFC type events), science, etc.
I entered a competition to win a trip into space ... I didn't win, but at least I tried..

hi the Names Ryan and im here looking to find a female who shares my interest and maybe my musical habits. i'm 18 years young. and i start college in the fall for music. ive been a freethinker most of my life but growing up in the south you can only Imagen the resistance i get for speaking my mind. but non-the less i speak what i have to say. and i also enjoy playing music and have multiple music projects suck as my band (mars blue www.myspace.com/themarsblue). i'm not to complicated when i date i tend to look for personality other than looks. i love debate and i love a woman who can speak her own mind. ive never been married so therefore never been divorced lol.
Age: 41. Though I'm not sure how that happened - I still get carded and listen to more heavy metal now than I did in high school.
Location: American Southwest. That's not me being vague; I work seasonal jobs wherever they take me. Currently a Park Ranger in Page AZ/Lake Powell. Likely returning to Taos Ski Valley NM for the Winter.
Me in a nutshell: Scifi geek, neo-hippy, bleeding heart liberal, tree-hugger, but with a very sarcastic, slightly dark and twisted side. INTP.
- Sooooo not a girly-girl. I can't remember the last time I wore a dress and the only way I'll spend half a day shopping is if it involves electronics and/or motorcycle parts.
- The closest thing I have or will ever have to kids are my 2 kittens, who have been raised more like dogs (play fetch, go for walks with me, fed on raw meat bones). And the snake, who doubles as HDTV for cats.
- My satellite radio is almost always on a Classic Rock station, sometimes 80s or 80s new wave. The MP3 player also contains some electronic/industrial, gothic, Native/New Age and a contemporary indie artist or three.
- Not a big socialite at all (perhaps why I'm still single - just not running into enough people?). I do love to play outdoors and need to do so more often.
- Not a supermodel but not hard to look at either. I take care of myself and clean the engine grease from under my nails when I go out in public. ;-)
So where are the guys? 6+ billion people on this planet. One or three of them must surely be a (very non-smoking) guy thinking to himself, "Gee, where are all the brainiac, hippy-esque, gypsy-adventurer, slightly geeky, scifi, rocker chicks more into jeans than heels?"
