In the past week I came out to my parents as an atheist.  I accepted their shock, as I would be absolutely asinine not to expect it, but I was given a great ride.  My father decided to inform me that…Continue

Explaining Evolution to Creationists

Hello there.  Recently, my parents and I have been discussing the unspoken topic of religion recently.  I explain to them that I do not believe in god, they ask why, and I tell them that there is no demonstration for his manifestation.  They say faith is their evidence.  That they don't need to see him in order to believe in him.  I get frustrated when explaining our universe's coming to be to them, because they cannot think of a world without god or think that it's crazy to believe we "came…See More

Hello, I'm new to the site and saw you left a post that said you are both atheist and gay.  I'm both atheist and bisexual. Oh, and half Ashkenazi Jew (in culture only) and half Spaniard / Cuban.  And I'm married to a Black / Chiricahua / Irish Atheist man.  Oh and left handed. ;)  Nice to meet you.

Welcome to Atheist Nexus!

Nexus has many ways for members to be involved, make friends, learn, and express yourself.   The welcome center is composed of Nexus volunteers, sort of like greeters at your favorite store.

 

Get to know people with similar interests by searching on Groups.  Use the search box on the Groups page, or browse through the many pages of groups, to see what's there.  There are Nexus groups for many states, cities, countries, personal expression, hobbies, and many other groups.  Get to know people based on what you enjoy, or what you have in common with others.

 

Ongoing forum discussions are more general interest than the groups.  Switch toforum categories for a somewhat organized format.

MeetupTo find local groups and make friends or chat, Meetup.com is a great place to locate groups or start one.  (note, Meetup is not connected to AN).  Join Meetup and search on a key word, such as atheist, atheism, skeptics, freethought, to see if there is a local group.

Support nexus by going to Amazon.com through the site (see the amazon box on the right).  Buying from Amazon via the Nexus site does not increase your cost, but results in a small fee going to Nexus.

Terms of service helps you know the "rules".  You can also find the TOS on the bottom right of the main screen.

The right sidebar shows recent posting activities and discussions by Nexus members.  Click on "more" at the bottom for additional activities by members.

 

If you have general questions about Nexus, how to find what you want, or other questions, feel free to ask me or another volunteer member of the Welcome center!

Enjoy!
