Hello all!  As I'm sure you've guessed by now, I'm new here.  I stumbled across this place a few days ago and just felt like I had to join.  Most everyone I know (with the exception of my husband) is…Continue

"The anti-slavery movement was considered a bit loony as late as 1840. History will shift gears. Unfortunately, it never learned how to use a clutch."

Alone

Sometimes, a lot of times, I feel quite alone here.Aside from my husband, I don't know any other atheists in the real world. Living here in Ohio, southern Ohio, I'm surrounded by religion and conservative mindsets... I came out recently as atheist to friends and lost several. They were too close-minded to accept me for what I am. These are people I've known for almost 20 years! It's sad and it's disturbing.I am 99.99999% certain there is no God. Why are so many others so unwilling to see what I…See More

"Anyone here in Dayton? I would give just about anything to have a female atheist friend to hang out with. Now that I've 'come out', I've lost friends. Sad, but true."

This is the place to post that hilarious irreligious YouTube video, an irreverent, anti-religious cartoon, or other humorous bit of media. Posts that do not reflect an atheist/irreligious theme will be deleted. (Don't make me go Old Testament.)See More

Tracie Scheiding replied to Lisa's discussion I'm lately extremely annoyed by believers
"This makes me think of one of my favorite mantras. "Saying that you've put things in God's hands is a socially acceptable way of saying that you've given up". I think out of everything believers do, it's that alone…"

Greetings, Tracie! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since Nov 2010. <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.

Hello to writer Tracie Scheiding, and welcome to this friendly meeting place where freethinking non-theists recognise that religion is largely a huge deception aimed at controlling vulnerable superstitious people, including defenceless children; and
how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and even longer.

Terry Meaden
founder of the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 290 discussion topics.
We invite you to join us and 1700 others.
