Greetings, Michelle! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
Wow, I have been meaning to reply for months now! I moved to Salt Lake City a little over a month ago and finally have a job. It's too bad though, because I thought I'd have a chance to meet you and your husband some time while I was in Washington. Good luck on your building project!
Howdy. I myself tried religion when I was in the 3ed grade. It wasn't for me. First, you had to actually get up early on Sunday. This wasn't even a school day! Then put on your suit and TIE! Then I had to go to Sunday School. That was just not right.

Sigh...my only concern is those who have to go back every week to be reminded to be good..... Makes me think I just kinda gotta watch those people...
Wow, I thought that was a great article! It speaks to many of the feelings I've had. I wonder how many other women are out there, pushing away feelings of inadequacy in order to be accepted at church. Too many, for sure.
Hello fellow atheists! I have joined this site in an attempt to find other rational individuals, such as myself, and to promote a current charity drive that I am trying to get going for the Oklahoma tornado victims. I have managed to get many groups from around my area, including the Beyond Belief Foundation to back me on this endeavor.
I am located in Newnan, Ga and have my own atheist group entitled "Coweta County Atheists". I am currently being backed by Spaulding Co.…
There is a video of the Pope's 'exorcism' caught on film. The man isn't demon possessed, there are likely no 'real' demons. He's just delusional and doesn't want to accept personal responsiblity for his own behavior for his own dysfunctional life.
There is an ad that reads ' Do you support 'traditional' marriage? Vote Now"! .
No, I don't support 'traditional' marriage because there is no such thing. I support heterosexual and same-sex couples marry each other legally , yes. 'Traditional' marriage promoters largely do not believe that heterosexual women are co-equal to their husbands. Their only purpose in 'traditional' marriage is to sexually satisfy their husbands if they can and raise children and do all…
i've got no problem with everyone saying "merry christmas" on christmas day. however, they've turned it into an entire holiday season where it lasts a month or more. in those situations it should be perfectly acceptable to say "happy holidays" or call it a…
