Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its 8900+ good friends and discussion groups.
Among the groups, try visiting perhaps the busy group “ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Humans, Evolution, Religion.....” with its commonsense discussions to repel religious nonsense. You will be welcome.
One is "Proud to be Atheist" (74 posts) seeing that atheists and humanists hold the intellectual high ground compared with the pathetic superstitions of the god followers. Similarly, “Religion is aberrant, atheism is truth” (42 posts).

I didn't expect to run across you here, but I'll take the opportunity to say how much I enjoyed the last Apologia podcast you were on, and the great tales you got the boys to share. Good luck on your book!
Hi Sarah in sunny Boston, I chickened out of your winter ordeals after four years in southern NH. I've been following your writing on the subject of Atheist bashing experiences. The oldest of my three twin daughters (I'll explain it all some day) is open about her lack of belief in the supernatural. She has alluded to some strong words being spoken in social studies debates but surprisingly little open bigotry. I say surprising since her high school is nestled firmly in the belly button lint immediately below the bible belt. I'll pass on a link to your work in case she has anything of interest to share with you.
Greetings, Sarah! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.

i've got no problem with everyone saying "merry christmas" on christmas day. however, they've turned it into an entire holiday season where it lasts a month or more. in those situations it should be perfectly acceptable to say "happy holidays" or call it a…
I posted the bulk of this on another thread, but wanted to add some context separately.
I finally confronted my faith and embraced the fact of my atheism late last August, 2012. Days after I revealed my "epiphany" to a few friends who knew me from another message board, my sister died from Lou Gehrig's Disease (which pissed her off because she hated catching a disease from someone she never f---ed).
THAT was my sister, understand? She was a beautiful, life-loving, potty-mouthed…
OK. I am venting. My mother died two weeks ago. She was a “god fearing christian.” Before her death she refused all medical treatment. She wanted to be left alone. She even refused to speak with my brother who is a methodist minister. He is a pip, let me tell you! I suspect she did not believe, but a woman born in her time could not and did not state her actual beliefs. This is the opening salvo to all christians; FUCK YOU! I had so many people come and tell…
This probably should not have shocked me as much as it did (especially since I am in Texas). I actually thought my coworkers were playing a joke on me because they know I am an atheist. Sadly, this was no joke. This actually happened.
I work in a psychiatric hospital. The doctors who admit patients are general MDs. (Psychiatrists see patients after admission) Yesterday evening we received several calls from irate parents. A new doctor who was doing admissions yesterday actually…
