I gang. We live in Mishawaka. I have started to come out slowly. Most of the 12 people in my office know my positions. I have been here 5 years so it wasn't that difficult to come out. Everyone at work is college educated and I think that helps them accept my world view. Besides, our company's founder hangs out with Woody Harrelson. At work I am called the devils advocate because I like to express the contray position.
If any of you are on Facebook or Linkedin let me know.

Greetings all. I live in Mishawaka, and am thrilled to find out I'm not the only atheist in Northern Indiana. I have felt hopelessly outnumbered. ...like the only sane person committed to an insane asylum.

Hey, I live in Liberty, which is just 10 miles south of Richmond! I'm a Bue in Red territory!!! LOL!!! I'm pretty sure we're part of the Bible Belt!

Okay...I actually live in Ohio but I'm only about 10 miles from the border. So, what the heck ! Do most of my shopping in Richmond, Indiana. Especially booze :)

Hey all
Tim here.
Wish there were more of you down here in my area.
I have a few friends and co-workers who are atheists and we have some good discussions and lively debates. We even discuss god and religion openly at work without any problems.
Kinda unusual from what I gather.
Most people from what I understand would not or could not even discuss politics let alone religion and god at work. So I guess I have it better than some of you.
Anyway thanks for letting me go on.

It's funny, I had this great idea to start a website to bring together all of the disparate atheist blogs, forums, whatever into a consolidated website. So I decide to search if anyone is doing it already and I found AtheistNexus, doh!

Although my idea was to be more geographical in nature so that local people could better find each other, it looks like Atheist Nexus lacks this or at least doesn't push it as much.

Anyway, greetings to my fellow Hoosiers. btw, my personal blog is more skepticism than anything else, I do participate in person and online at FreeThoughtFortWayne.org. We have a meeting tomorrow in fact.

Joe: I think you're right about the under 30 crowd. I'm 37 and most coworkers consider me to be a kid (I love it). So although most are educated, most are also old enough to be my parents. I'd be curious to know what the average age of AN members is.

My first guess at a reason for this would be that the public school system started teaching evolution sometime between their early educations and mine.

I remember being taught 'creationism' in Sunday school but I accepted it as another set of childhood fairytales and shed them along with Santa. (I miss Santa...)

I like your assumptive approach. It seems very reasonable to speak about factual information in a non-subversive manner.

Jude.... I find plenty that don't agree. My 'assuming that all are atheists" in many situations is really just the way I approach things. I think it is my little way to try to shake up the system. If I talk in a way that doesn't make it look like my thoughts are subversive, maybe they will, eventually, be more accepted.

I do tip-toe around it if the other person is higher in the food chain at work or older family members.

The under 30 crowd seems to have a much higher percentage of non-believers.
