That's all right! To be perfectly honest, I completely forget what I had written in the comment to you. So, call it even? Ha! :)

Hey there. I noticed that you are a young atheist who contributes to Atheist Nexus, and I wanted to quickly tell you about a new project I’m starting up. It’s called Generation Atheist, and it’s a collaborative blog project created for young atheists, agnostics, sceptics, freethinkers and non-theists to come together and explore issues that affect their lives.

It can seem daunting to voice your opinions about religion in the real word, especially if you live in a predominantly theistic community. Many young people think about setting up websites or blogs to get their voices heard, but it can be difficult to find something to write about regularly and to get traffic to your blog. The aim of Gerneration Atheist is for us all to come together and support each other by reading and commenting on each others’ work as well as finding out own voices.

It’s a very new project at the moment, but we have a backlog of articles written by a variety of young people that should last us a couple of weeks, posting one every day. I was hoping that you would check out our group on Atheist Nexus, the link to which is here. From there you can find a link to the blog. It would be really great if you could read the articles as they appear and comment on them. It would be really super great if you wrote an article of your own!

Hey there! I'm okay. Just freaking out over STILL not having a better job.  BTW, are you on facebook? If so, you'd love our secret group for atheists in Mississippi. We have 88 members and it's very active. Lemme know if you wanna join it-- no one would know you were in it but the current members.

Eh, I knew you were joking. Self-awareness of a goofy quip makes it much less creepy than it could be.

Nah, it's more amusing than anything. Normally I don't even get jokingly hit on, so you got a laugh out of me. :P

Err, wait, am I completely scrambling people up on here?  You're straight? ... or at least bi?  I had thought you were gay, from some conversational thread on here somewhere.

Hey Orson, sorry I am just getting back to you.
Astrobiology is the search for evidence of life (or life itself) on other planets. Could be any extra-terrestrial bodies even asteroids or meteorites. Evidence itself could be microbes, chemical signatures that life once existed, or full blown real-life aliens! The latter of which I think is less likely but not impossible ;)

I have always been fascinated with the topic and it's the reason I am studying microbial ecology of extreme climates.

Thanks for the welcome, Orson! It is my Grand Plan to meet people like myself.
What subject are you studying?

Why yes. Yes I did!

I'm not quite sure as I've never really spent much time in northern MS, so I tend to take others' word for it that it is worse here. There have been a few things over the five or so years that I've lived in MS that have made me raise an eyebrow and think "Does this really happen elsewhere?"

I'll add you on YIM. (: My username is acerbichymn, as a heads-up.

Welcome to the busy group "Origins". Visit often and contribute as and when you wish.

Well now that my mother knows I'm an atheist, I'm not too sure if she will force me to go. If she does, I will try your method of asking hard questions. Thanks :)

What, 'Leslee Love'? Yea, it sounds like a porn name from what I've been told. It is a rather difficult last name to live up to, considering how cynical, sardonic and self-deprecating I can be! But, thank you; I'll take the compliment! :)...

That's a good way of putting it. I'll remember it and use it. I hope you set Mississippi burning in the best way. (Good film. I've seen it several times and get weepy again and again). It's time we heathens had our civil rights.

Hej Orson.
re. your comment on Donald Boos page. "I'm the sort of guy..." reminded me of an old Elvis Costello song.
"Even in a perfect world
Where everyone was equal
I'd still own the film rights
And be working on the sequel."

There is poetry in rock. And some of us are positive enough to see the possibility for betterment all around.

Good luck "unbuckling that old Bible belt" (Gram Parsons)

Haha, yes. I don't know what I'd do without my friends. I have very supportive real-life friends (even those that aren't atheist), which is definitely nice. I found this community the other day and decided the check it out. I'm thinking I like it. :)

I know exactly what you mean about the black hole. Always feeling like an outsider sucks, but at the same time, I certainly wouldn't replace it with delusion.

There are more atheists in Mississippi than most of us realize. This is a big part of the reason we're doing Mississippi Atheists, as a way to make sure that all atheists in the state have a way of finding each other and realizing that they are not alone.

Hey, Orson, yes, there are atheists here. A few organized meetup groups, some blogs, so look around if you want to stay in touch with some other freethinkers. Mims

31 members at Ole Miss? No kidding! That's great! As of yet, I'm still in hiding, so I cannot join your group. If you have any meetings, could you let me know?
