Just wanted to send that inquiry out there... The whole thing fascinates me because, of all the things I don't believe in, God is the only one I proclaim that I do not believe in.  For instance, I…Continue

gabriel nunez replied to Brittany A. Cox's discussion Why does "atheist" have such a negative connotation?
"Well said. I believe a third possibility may be "I know there is no magic or God, but pretending there is is really beneficial to me so I will continue to play along.""

Welcome, gabriel! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends. You might also like Libertarian AtheistsHumanists and American Atheists.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since Arizona's climate is changing so drastically.

After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.

Happy Halloween and
