Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its 10,700+ good friends and discussion groups.

Daniel, welcome to Atheist Nexus. Be sure to check out the GROUPS page to find like-minded people.
I've started eight groups here, so please join any you think you might be interested in.
HERCULANEUM: A PLACE FOR MEN is a group where men can discuss and explore the ideas, goals, demands, ethics, sexuality, and nature of manhood and masculinity. It is a place where we are free to be ourselves, and discuss the issues most important to our identities as men.
THE KNIFE & FORK is a group for anyone who has a strong interest or mild curiosity in food, cooking, eating, drinking, and nutrition.
HUMANE ATHEISTS is a group for people who are interested in trying to live a humane life by understanding the issues surrounding animal welfare.
CONSUMER ETHICS was created to help us understand how our purchasing power can help or harm the world around us.
