Calling all Texas Aggie Atheists, past & present.

I am working on starting up an A|N group for Texas A&M Former students who are also atheists. There are a lot of Aggies out there, of course, but how many of us are nonbelievers? I'd like to know and meet you. I'm TAMU Class of 1993 and was a member of outfit Trident P-2.



We hear all about the famous "Aggie Network", but does it really work for you if you're an atheist, or a Libertarian instead of a Republican, or worse, you're a goddless lefty liberal like yours… Continue

Controversy

The differences in audiences was very apparent in my presentation in Portland. It was clear from the start that there were a significant number of religious people in the audience as well as a large number of non-religious people.

Interesting essay

I just returned from talking with a great group in Joplin, MO - link. Who would guess that there is a very active and lively group of freethinkers in such a bible belt city (25 attended). We had five students from Ozark Christian College in the audience as well. They asked interesting questions and stayed around for some good conversation at the end. I rarely get religious people in my presentations, but I certainly… Continue
