Hey Jason - I just moved from Augusta, GA. Small world.

Hey Jason,

You will appreciate this: yesterday I am playing 18 and I am one over, having chipped in twice and made a bunch of ridiculous putts, but, okay, 1 fucking over! I hit a decent tee shot down the right side, and I have 6-iron to an easy front pin. So, what next; uh huh, I dead shank the 6-iron straight out of bounds is what!! My pal, who is playing with me, falls over laughing! I just put it in the bag and walked in. There are times when this game makes you want to KILL YOURSELF!

Well, I can say that I am horrified and saddened at what I have just read regarding the religious pressures imposed by people of some of these towns and cities.
You are brave and tough to put up with this.
At least you can regard Atheist Nexus as a sincere escape channel from these unwanted pressures. You are most welcome here. Do rant and let off steam when you want. Terry (of the group ORIGINS).

Coming to Williamsburg after 15 years in Northern Europe really came as a shock. I was caught completely off guard by the influence of Christianity in almost everyone's daily life. Seriously, virtually everyone I met to play golf with wanted to know if I'd selected a church yet and whether I might be interested in coming to theirs. The normal, at least for me, polite reply that I was a non-believer was met with shock, disbelief, and/or a rather marked and immediate disassociation. So, I moved from an environment in which about 40 percent of the population believed in God, and those rarely, if ever, talked about it, to one in which everyone was praising Jesus every 15 fucking seconds. It was overwhelming. Being an atheist in this environment is being a strange thing indeed. I find that most people get used to it in time. Interestingly, many simply deal with it by convincing themselves that I don't really mean it or believing that I will soon come to my senses and change my mind. The one thing no one, and I mean NO ONE, wants to do is discuss it. Their beliefs are utterly taken for granted, and there is no need to discuss them or their rationale for believing as they do. Sorry for the long diatribe. Just wanted you to know that I can sympathize with your situation entirely.

Hi Jason,

That's a pretty nice position at the top in your photo. I sympathize with your theistic locale. I have much the same situation here in Williamsburg, VA - great golf, but basically Jesusland!

Good afternoon, Jason. If you don't mind my asking, I am curious as to why you decided to befriend me, a newbie, here. Do I know you from somewhere or from mutual friends?

Yeah, it can be nerve-wracking to come-out, even to family, when you just don't know how they're going to react. Like when I told my grandmother I'm an atheist she was horrified, even though she was an atheist too! But she said angrily, "You can't call yourself that!! Nobody will like you!!" Geesh.

Hi. Must be rough being an atheist in the south. I go down to North Carolina once a year, and I feel *surrounded* by religion...

Yes, the PBS thing was a surprise. My three seconds of fame. Still waiting for the other 14 minutes and 57 seconds.

Thanks for the kind words, Jason.

I'm doing my best to improve the show and keep it interesting so feedback, thoughts, creative critiques and topic suggestions are always welcome.

Your blog post about the cockroach question brings up something I'd never thought of before...Y.E. creationist trivia games would be extremely boring!
