I just wanted to see how many different kinds of people we got going on this site :D

Just give a holler and let everyone know what area you represent!

 

I'm from Brampton, but for the sake of simplicity I'll say Toronto! WOO!

Teresa,

I live in Yonkers (less than one hour from NYC), and yesterday a lady looked at me as if I was a criminal when I said I was an Atheist; a second lady asked me which church the Atheists attend.

Whenever people talk about religion in my presence....I clearly state I am an Atheist. Trust me, the lack of knowledge about Atheism...and the rejection...is not patrimony of small towns.

Fortunatelly, young people are more open minded and they ask questions.

Im from New Delhi India and feel equally isolated, India is still deeply religious and many age old evil customs that stem from religion are still practiced here. But there is a new upper middle class youth segment that has the capacity to think beyond religion.

Holy Cow!

It's good to hear about the new upper middle class in India. Let's hope they do well, even be a model for other countries. 

I rather assume that many of this movement will be familiar with (according to Wikipedia):

Cārvāka (Sanskrit: चार्वाक), also known as Lokāyata, is a system of Indian philosophy that assumes various forms of materialism, philosophical skepticism and religious indifference.[1]

There are roots as far back as the 6th century BCE.

Western Poland, suprisingly lots of aths in here :)

Victoria, BC Canada

Retired to Westmoreland County, PA (just east of Pittsburgh), conservative Christian territory, oy!

Hey Kitty,

The title of this thread is "Atheists Assemble.' If you would like to assemble with atheists, you might check out Sunday Assembly Pittsburgh. We launch on 9/28. It would be a nice break from the evangelicals you talk to every day :)
