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.

Hi Joe, and welcome!

You find a good bit of agreement in your circles? I wish I could say the same.

Far from being able to assume that everyone is an atheist, I've found myself to be quite wrong to assume that most people will agree with what's already been proven scientifically. I work in an office of professionals -- we are computer specialists, technical writers, graphic designers, and administrators -- and I'm hard-put to find people who will consider evolution, for example, as any more than one possible (if not unlikely) theory. Many of them seem to go with the 'theory' that earth is less than 8000 years old and there seems to be no evidence which would convince them otherwise.

If this attidute represented the minority, I would most likely just ignore them, but sometimes it's like I'm living in some kind of Twilight Zone where I'm the only one who can tell there's an elephant in the room.

I find intellectual conversations very challenging with people who don't believe in Reason. That's why I'm here!

Lafayette here. There may only be 16 in here but we are everywhere. My philosophy over the last few years is to assume that everyone is an atheist rather than walking on eggshells. A good percentage of people seem to agree with us at least on some level.

Hoosier sick of religious crap??
That describes me!
Hello Hoosier atheists!
-Good to know I'm not alone.

I wrote a ridiculously long profile entry, if anyone cares to scan it.
I've seen others interested in forming a discussion group and I'm interested. Let's discuss it and see if we're on the same page.

#14 -- woo hoo!

Indiana population: 6,000,000-6,500,000
Indiana atheist population on the nexus: 13
Unfortunately all mine are theists :(
At least they are good and genuine people... but if you know any atheist Hoosiers, tell them about us!

I would love to either find or start a group for those of us in Indianapolis. I like to hear from anyone else intrested.

Shout out to any Indianapolis folks...Good to see everyone here. It would be great to see this group grow and perhaps be a catalyst for a more active Atheist community here in the Hoosier state.
