I had always been one of those people who "pretended" to pray...ever since I can remember. Whether to fit in, be polite, or just avoid those disgusted looks ....I'm not really sure why I did it. I…Continue
"Are people still hoping to meet? I'm still interested. My husband is, too. We just returned from the Atheist Alliance International meeting in Montreal (Oct 1-3). There were some terrific speakers, most notably, Chris diCarlo, Daniel Dennett,…"
"Our group, as far as I know, is the only atheist/skeptic network in Vermont. It appears the atheist/humanist group in Burlington is going dormant. Haven't heard from Charles as to whether or not he has time/interest in a group off of…"
This weekend is right out, and next weekend... I'm not sure yet. My suggestion is to look a month in advance to when you can be at something, and just go ahead and plan it. Then, send out an email to everyone via the send a message…"
"It would definitely be a good idea not to walk out the door without having another meeting planned, and maybe get into a routine of regular meetings. Maybe you should post what weekend you are free next since you are the one rattling everyone's…"
"Stacey, You're right! I wonder if there was a change in the program. But perhaps I've been wrong about it all along. I see that he spoke at the AAI meeting in Copenhagen in June. Maybe that's the source of the confusion. Yes, there…"

Wow! Dawkins will be in Montreal?
"Stacey, Sounds like a good plan. It would be good to have a discussion topic ahead of time. And I'm interested in meeting -- but I have a very busy fall schedule. Will be out of the country for a lot of October. But let's keep in touch.…"

"I know activity level has been low for everyone recently (vermont summer/fall - enjoy the weather outdoors while it lasts!) but I am going to add my post here, in case things start picking up again.

"I have several tunes highlighting the atheist viewpoint. Haven't gotten into doing the youtube thing. Haven't visited this site for some time. Here's a copy of a tune I did in 2009 called Very Bad Form. I'm a product of the…"
Greetings, Stacey! 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.
Yeah, the drummer in my brother's band put it up on FB. I absolutely fell out when I saw it. I'm glad you enjoyed it as well, Stacy. What is truly disturbing though, is these are the folks who want to be in control of this country. -Lee
