"On the first day of school, the religious nutjob neighbor brought her bible and was reading scripture to the children at the bus stop. I only found out about it later - we were late, and came running up as the bus was about to pull away. The other…"
"I call out religious B.S. when it confronts me directly. Just met a new couple that moved in to my neighborhood this weekend. They were having a 2 day yard sale Sat-sun and were surprised that nobody was showing up on Sunday morning. They just moved…"
"being from Elizabeth City originally - I find it humorous how much its been in the news lately... Edward Snowden - the NSA leaker is originally from E.C.... I live on the OBX, any OBX subchapter of the EC group? I'm surrounded by theists...…"
"Anybody know of a good, concise video series (youtube, netflix or otherwise) that explains cosmology/origin of the universe/planets well for a 5 year old?

"I really don't care if my neighbors are theists, deists, christians, etc... I don't need to engage with them in that type of conversation. The one religious family are methodists, so they are pretty tame... However, it irks me that as an…"
"Problem is that my wife is an ambivalent atheist/agnostic... I'm a fervent anti-theist... I have no plans to 'out' myself to our religious friends, but I wouldn't mind hanging out with some people who aren't bible thumpers.…"
"The OBX is a quasi-liberal enclave on the outskirts... lots of transplants from the northeast - just surprised that there's no group of free-thinkers out here.... maybe I need to change that. I saw something when I googled about a meet-up in…"
"Greetings fellow tarheel atheists. My name is Jeremy. I am a 'don't ask, don't tell' anti-theist who lives on the Outer Banks. Any other OBXers on here?
