Wow, Nick...you sound like I did when I first moved here and I didn't even know I was an atheist yet! Yes, the South is full of ignorant and narrow-minded people, but I've lived in PA, and there are plenty of them there too. They're easier to deal with if you just shake your head and walk away. I don't argue and I don't debate. Both are futile and a waste of energy. The main reason theists are afraid of atheism is because they know at some level religion is a fairy tale, but it's the only thing giving their life meaning. It's easier to have a god than stand on their own two feet. It's all fear. Don't be mad at them...feel sorry for them.

Helow, my fellow North Carolinians. I don't know if this is the right spot to post this or not, but here goes. I am starting a group in Elizbeth City, NC. It is called Elizbth City Freethinkers. It's on meetup.com. Anyone nearby or far away (if you like to drive) fom Elizabeth City is welcome. This is my first attempt at starting a group so if you're interested and nearby go to meetup and look up Elizzabeth City Freethinkers.
Thank you.

I apologize if this was the wrong place to post this.

I know this is the "Bible Belt", but.....I honestly would not mind people believing in the 'unknown' (key word) and the possibility of a god/afterlife/etc as much if people weren't deluded enough to not only take it as a fact sans any semblance of evidence, but claim to know what this being wants. Then have the nerve to judge "non-believers" (as even many 'liberal' Christians or 'cool' ones give you the cold shoulder once they find out you're atheist). I mean, despite always doing great in tests and classes, I am FAR from some intellectual elitist. In fact, I often feel like I'm an undereducated slacker and a bit slow compared to many other 'atheists', but to me, it just honestly doesn't even take much intellect to start questioning how fucked up a lot of the Bible crap we're preached to is (understatement). It just boggles my mind that reasonable and actually intelligent people still believe such insane and hateful crap........i mean if I were a father and set my kid on fire for sticking his hand in a cookie jar, they'd call me a monster, and I'd be spat on, not the opposite: being looked up to as a pillar of morality just punishing his child. But it's OK for 'God' (?) to do this.....without end (?).

Sorry......just rambling.

I know how you feel Larry, I usually feel like me and my brother are the only atheists in Wilson.

@Root, my husband teaches down here in NC, and has on more than one occasion, has had to tell students to put away their bibles that they have pulled out and read in class. The response has always been "really, there's something wrong with my bible" now I'm telling him to watch his back.

An eight-grade teacher in North Carolina was suspended after students disrupted her classes with proselytizing and harassment.

Melissa Hussain teaches eight-grade science at West Lake Middle School in Apex, NC. Some of her students challenged her with Christian beliefs when she taught a lesson on evolution.
