I live in a small village - not overly religious, but with a high population of conservative retired people.

While I was at the local store last week I decided to pin up a rather large and lurid advertising flyer about the Rise of Atheism Global Atheist Convention to be held in Melbourne in March next year, on the community noticeboard.

I didn't have high hopes for its survival. I was certain some well-meaning Christian would see fit to remove it to protect our fellow villagers from temptation.

To be honest, I'd forgotten about it until today - some five days later - when I went to the store and saw it was still there! I was gobsmacked!

Either our village has the most tolerant Christians in Christendom or I'm not the only atheist in the village! ;-)

I'm not surprised. I'm quietly and pleasantly amazed at the number of people I meet or even old friends and acquaintances who turn out to have similar non belief to myself.
I'm dying to see how long it will last!
