Hi Damien,

I live in Lihue. If you are moving here, it would be great to meet you.

Howzit, Damien. Welcome to our little group. Now we're up to 6. Getting together for drinks and talking atheist story sounds like a blast, but I don't make it to the neighbors isles very often (and when I go to Oahu, I'm usually just passing through). However, I certainly let folks know if I'll be in their neck of the woods for any amount of time.

Hi,

I used to live in Hilo but I've been on the mainland for the last few years. When I come back a couple of monthe from now I think I'll be living in Lihue. It's good to know I won't be the only atheist in Hawaii.

Aloha, Calvin, Andrew, Richard and Aaron. Initially, when I started this page, months went by without any input from other atheists out here. Now that I see we've got a small but important number, I think it's definitely a good start. I think it was Richard Dawkins who said organizing atheists is like herding cats. But, maybe we can start by meeting for a few drinks. I know Kauai and Hilo are quite far from Oahu, but should you two ever be here on Oahu, let us know. Likewise, I do get around to the neighbor islands every now and then so I'll let the message out.

I also think that there are many non-believers in the islands. Most are pretty mellow, and I guess don't feel the threat from organized religion that those perhaps in the south or heavily religious areas like Utah feel. Generally, people in Oahu don't like to publicize their beliefs and keep to themselves. I respect that, but I think why not band together and support each other for significant views that make you who you are. We're all critical thinkers, and the conversational level is probably going to go beyond superficial trappings.

Hey howzit Aaron, welcome to the group! Yeah, I know what you mean; most of the people I deal with are into deist religions. Although I don’t hide the fact that I’m an atheist, I don’t advertise it ether. The topic of religion almost never comes up.

Howzit, Aaron, and welcome to the Nexus and to our little group of Heathens with Aloha. It's not the most active group out there, but it's always nice to meet other free-thinkers. You are most definitely not alone!

I'm on Oahu, well we maybe groups of one, but we got three island covered, that's a start...

Hi, Andrew. Nope, I live in Hilo. I don't qualify for the Kauai group, except perhaps in spirit.
Comment by Andrew on March 30, 2009 at 2:22am
Of the 4 of us, are any of you on Kauai? I started a Facebook group for Kauai Atheists and Freethinkers but so far, it's a group of 1... me!
Comment by Richard Valcourt on March 29, 2009 at 4:35pm
Howzit, Calvin. I mostly blame the missionaries. They made Christianity such a strong force here, it's hard to break away from that. But you're probably correct about the Asian influence, too. There could be many more of us, but it's hard to find out. I sure hope this country will start breaking away from the yoke of religion that it has been under for the past few decades. I look forward to seeing this group grow.
