I posted my first blog a couple days ago about all of my confusion in coming to terms with my identity as an atheist, and I have to say thank you for the responses. I got 3 replies inside of 2 hours. It was really nice just to know that someone is at least trying to understand and can feel where I'm coming from. I'm finding lots of great groups on here and I'm really excited about being on a social site where I know I can say what I want and be who I am. I just read this crazy story that was linked on Pharyngula



and I realized that the guy's experience in trying to get help from "loving" and "understanding" believers is very typical. It's amazing how compassionate and supportive all of us godless heathens can be.

So one more time, I'll say thank you. I hope that more and more people find their way to this site. It's uplifting to find a place where we are not demonized, but celebrated.

I'm glad you're having a good experience at AN -- I've found the same to be true at every atheist site I visit. - And it means even more (to me, anyway) because you don't feel like people have phoney ulterior motives. It doesn't matter if you're asking for support, acceptance, or information -- it's always there and it's usually quick.

By the way: Pharyngula is great -- glad you found it. It's my second most visited site (after AN). PZ rules!

Happy New Year Jurbank!
