"The term "Agnostic" really bothers me more. It simply means "that you cannot prove or disprove god and/or religion" therefore if you are "Athiest" you are ALSO "Agnostic". One does not follow the other. I feel…"

"I think skeptic is probably a better term, because I would say I was a skeptic first and foremost and that is what lead me to be an atheist. An atheist isn't so much who I am but what stance I have on a particular topic.   That having been…"

Newfoundland Atheists

Posted on December 22, 2010 at 9:01pm 0 Comments

Calling all Newfoundland Atheists!  I'm looking for you!  It seems there is very little in way of groups, on the internet or otherwise for atheists in Newfoundland, Canada.

 

Please reveal yourselves to me!

Ta da! Hey Terry, I am living in CBS. Not a lot of open atheists in this province. I don't draw any attention to myself over it - I don't need to convert anyone, much like you, I just enjoy my time with the people I love, regardless of their state of mind. I work at MUN, Faculty of Medicine, multimedia specialist.
