I admit that i haven't been following closely, but the whole thing disappoints me. I can't stand how conservatives get lumped in with the religious. I'm not sure what started this whole thing , "rahm…Continue

Being a conservative atheist is a case of being a double minority; it kind of puts one on the wrong side of pretty much everything. I've found it difficult to find anyplace where I fit in; obviously…Continue

Pretty amazing.  Good morning.  40% of your money has been confiscated from your bank account in order to bailout your government.

Hi Sheri,

Thank you for joining our (your) group.

I'm originally from Southern California and have spent some years up in North Idaho.  I'm here now in North Florida to pursue more school.  I've been here for about 1 and a half years now.  I'm working to become a scientist, physicist.

I originally found a group like this one on Facebook, the same title that is.  Then I found Atheist Nexus and of course with only Atheists, no one had yet created such a group here.  We're doing pretty good in number for being over here, I think.

Also, I opened up an offshoot group on FB for the anti-abortion lot of conservative atheists who don't like to rehash abortion arguments all the time.  It's called Prolife Conservative Atheists.  I would call it "Anti-Abortion Conservative & Conservative Libertarian Nontheists"
but I'm not sure many people would go for it.  Same for this group, it could be called "Conservative & Conservative Libertarian Nontheists", but a person who considers his/herself a conservative in the popular sense get the idea though, I think.

How about yourself and anyone else who would like to chime in, where are you from and what do you do?




How about yourself.

Hi Chris,

            Thank you for starting this group.  Great idea.

 

            I see you live in Florida.  The closest I have been to Florida was Greensboro, North Carolina (to visit my then boyfriend)1987, and Atlanta, Georgia to visit my sister, who moved to Chicago in the Spring of 2001.  How long have you lived in Florida?

Hello,

            O.K., so I want to increase my social life, so I am going to talk like I just met you at some social gathering, because this online communication stuff is still fairly new to me.  So, in response to your greeting, I would try to learn about what else we might have in common, besides this website, and not in common.

Thanks for the post Sheri.  Also, I will let them know of our group here.

BTW, welcome to anyone who I haven't welcomed here before!

Welcome Eric Stubbs and thank you for your post below.

Hello,

    On the Facebook page, a member posed the question of whether to change from an Open group to a Closed group.

  I am "on the fence." 

I found the page, I suppose because it was Open, so I like that. 

But I am in the process of changing jobs.  I have not changed jobs in about ten years, and I know things have changed, like employers "Goolging" applicants.  I know that they are not supposed to discriminate, but I am reluctant to join your Facebook group until I gain my new job.  I joined here because, once I discovered this site I did not want to wait any longer to communicate with like minds.

Hello everyone.  I am very pleased to join this group from Japan.  I've read through many of the posts, and I find them to be agreeable.  Here's my quick background: I was born in Maine and grew up in Maine and North Carolina.  I became an atheist at 16 (I tried to be religious, I really tried; but I found that religion did not fit the world I saw around me).  I became a conservative in my mid 20s during the Clinton era (primarily during the conflicts in Rwanda and Serbia, which really disturb me to this day).  I am a big fan of George W. Bush, and I will defend his actions until the day I die.  I graduated from a service academy and I've been in uniform for 22 years, but the military has little to do with my beliefs.  I have actually found it easy to be a conservative atheist in the military, although there are many cliques which I totally avoid by being nonreligious.  I'd be happy to discuss military issues anytime, but I'm trying to keep this short.  :)

I have given up Facebook because of the 108 friends and family I had there, none shared my views; worse yet, none seemed to give two cents for the death of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi (I feel that those who voted for Pres Obama treated them as expendable; I'm still in shock over this).  Also, Facebook does not provide the privacy I need as a member of the military.  I have found a few of you on Google+ and I think the circles  in Google+ allow me to have more privacy, but if there's another social networking site that ya'll use, please let me know.  Take care, and Happy Thanksgiving.

James, I know what you mean about religion in republicans speeches, but I don't think most of them are catering.  I think they truly believe it, which at times is scarier for me.  How can fellow conservatives use logic and deduction for making most life and political decisions and then follow absolute fallacy and wishful thinking by believing in a god?

I mean, liberals are usually the ones making choices based on how something feels rather than by using logic so how did conservatives get stuck in the choosing god because it feels good path?

Any ideas on that?

I'm thinking part is ingraned parental loyalty, and believing what their parents told them, but they should still also believe in Santa as well then.

Comment by James Yount on September 1, 2012 at 8:51am

Not a lot.  Anyone notice how much the repubs tend to cater to the religious in their speeches and alienate us? There would be more conservative atheists if they'd just lay off the religion and focus on small government and the economy....

Andrew, I've never seen one, but one might be able to interpolate a rough number of right-of-center nontheist types in our country from multiplying the ratio of nonbelievers to believers to the ratio of those right-of-center to left-of-center.  I did something like this once but the sources I found for each ratio itself respectively were not the best.
