Hi Peggy,

I am a little late but welcome aboard, attempting to get atheist and free thinkers is a really interesting experience. We are trying to gather as many of use together as possible. And at this point we have hit all the social networks on the web. The good thing about
that is that we have been able to attract and talk to a wide variety of people. The bad news we are spread all over the map. Or main group communicates via a Yahoo group. The Email for that group is Montereycountyskeptics@yahoo.co, If you would like to be on the mailing list you specify in the email, or if you have a Yahoo Email account we go the the group page Mike linked and sign up.

A little about me, I am a Programmer/annalist, my father was a Jack Mormon (atheist) and my mother a non-specific Christian. So I was lucky enough to go through childhood with out having to believe in someone else's bazaar idea of how the world worked. I became a skeptic and active in the skeptical movement when my sister started getting involved with psychics, I at first did not know if she had really found something or not. I found the little magician who was putting out a weekly news letter and seemed to know something about psychics. Anyway that opened my eyes to skepticism and I have not looked back.

So welcome aboard and please excuse the mess but we are just getting started.

Steve

Hi Peggy. I received your question about the Monterey County Skeptics Society. Right now, we are few in number and have only had two meetings. We are definitely looking for new members and trying to come up with goals, plans, etc. as we formulate who and what we should be as an organization. Please feel free to visit our Yahoo Groups page so you can request membership of that group and tell us more about yourself!

Being a sibling of a famous author is a rather passive pursuit ... I just have to do or say something worth writing about when I'm around him. I'm thankful he gave me the best lines in the book, even if I didn't say them, but I think he just did it to offset his rather detailed accounts of some of the most embarrassing moments of my existence. Either way, I don't mind being cannon fodder for his psyche. ;)

My other hats ... that's just me still trying to figure out which one fits right.

I know what you're saying about the family thing. I'm sometimes very active here, other times I just lurk. (I should be more active, considering they have my mug as a featured member!) But I definitely like having a place to go after facing some nuttiness with the, uh, shall we say, less-reasoned.

I don't know if you're a podcast listener or not, but may I recommend a couple? They're both out of the Atheist Community of Austin:

http://www.atheist-experience.com/
http://www.nonprophetsradio.com/

They're both available on iTunes. The first is a weekly cable access call-in show that is then converted to audio-only and posted as a podcast. (The video version can found on video.google.com.) The second is a bi-weekly show with several guys sitting around covering the full gamut of topics. If I ever escaped the Midwest, I'd consider Austin just to be near that community.

Again, welcome! And next year, let's gang up on Rube and make sure he doesn't compete in the SLPL, okay?

Peggy, besides having the good sense to be involved in the Santa Lechuga Power League, you're an atheist to boot. Excellent! And welcome to the Nexus!

Yes and Hello Peggy. We are in the very beginning of the process of forming a Skeptic Organization here in Monterey. We are small and still in the process of finding like minded people.

I am also from the Baptist faith, here is my story. I am almost at the bottom, "Atheism not Porn" http://iam.comingoutgodless.com/2008_08_01_archive.html

If you are interested in meeting, let me know and I will come over and we can have dessert or a drink or whatever and talk. We are few here in MoCounty and need to stick together.

We would like MCSS to do a lot in the community, but we need members that are interested in doing these things. If all else fails we are hoping to at least have a social network.

Let me know your interests and availability. Do you have any interest in paranormal claims? I see that you are a big fan of Richard Dawkins, I have heard him speak at something....can't remember what.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Susan
