CSM atheists?

So, I am a student at the Colorado School of Mines in Golden, and I am somewhat dismayed to find that there isn't an atheist or skeptic group on campus!

"I like my sci-fi hard so I tend to like authors who keep close to the science. I would have a hard time picking a favorite author, but Syne Mitchell is definitely on the top of the list. I like Stephen Baxter and Kim Stanley Robinson. Of course, my…"

Introduction

So, I'm very strange; when I have something I need to think about, I process my thoughts by writing about them. Rather than writing a whole new post here, I'm just going to post the essay that came out of my trying to decide to openly call myself an atheist. This was not written for any particular audience, and I haven't edited it, but I think I'll just post it as-is:
