Atheist Andrea, love your photos. Your children, with beautiful blue eyes next to your brown ones look so happy and healthy. I suspect the handsome man completes the family album. Thank you for your kind words. We shall have a great time discovering living.
My wife and son and I are all atheists (as are our daughter and other son, but they are out of state). It is easy to feel along when society sends such strong signals that our way of life is not to be tolerated...gives me a lot more sympathy for other out-groups such as gays. My nephew is gay, finally openly - he lives in PA (much of which is way more conservative than NH) and lost some family relationships and friendships, though he gained so much more. And that's how I feel about me atheism except that, as have several other commenters, I haven't fully discusse this with my parents as they are not so far from death that they will change, and I don't want their last years spent worrying about my eternal damnation. Anyway, I think NH has a good many atheists or near atheists. Take care, Greg
Wow, thank you so much for the kind comment! I've gone through a lot in life that's made it necessary for me to stand strong in my convictions. Strength is something every woman-- and every person in general-- should have, wield, and of which they should be proud. ;)
Thank you! It's always nice to hear feedback on my site. It's far from complete, there are some significant gaps that need to be filled and some information to be corrected. It's a lot of work, but it allows me to educate myself while, at the same time, making this knowledge more easily available to the public. Space exploration, in my opinion, is instrumental in advancing our human race and ultimately will free us from the matrix of faith in myths.
