As leader of Young Atheists, I thought you and your group might be interested in

In Texas, Police in Schools Criminalize 300,000 Students Each Year

especially members who live in Texas.

Hi, Yvette. I'm writing to you as the moderator of Young Atheists. I'd noticed your group, ans saw you had over 300 members, so for months I'd routinely been recommending it to new members ages 14-17. Then I actually looked at the group, and was dismayed to see almost no activity. I'd thought it wasn't my business to "spy" on your conversations, so I didn't examine it closely for a long time. I'd thought young people would have a lot to talk about with one another. *sigh* After seeing months could go by with nothing shared, I've stopped providing a link to new youth. Just thought you should know. BTW, since you identify as a geek, have you checked out Geek and Nerd Haven? I'll take a look at Atheist Revolution, in your group list.

If you want to discuss ways to jump start your group, I'm open. Hang With Friends is doing pretty well.

Hi Yvette - I'm Kris - I host the Aussie/Kiwi group here on Nexus. I'm also the media and communications consultant for the forthcoming "Rise of Atheism" Global Atheist Convention to be held in Melbourne in March 2010. The Convention is being organized jointly by Atheist Alliance International and the Atheist Foundation of Australia.

I wonder if you could let your members know that tickets for the convention are now available online at the Convention website. We are expecting nearly 3,000 delegates, so this convention is going to be huge.

Confirmed speakers include: Richard Dawkins, AC Grayling, PZ Myers, Dan Barker, Peter Singer, Taslima Nasrin and many more.

Anything you can do to help us get the word out would be greatly appreciated.

Hello dear Yvette, glad to see you here. Sadly it's been a while since I was online here and things seem to have changed. Somehow I cannot figure out how to send private messages so I didn't bother and wrote in your guestbook. I'd much fancy a nice conversation with you sometime.
Warmest regards,
Tiska

Wow! Okay, I think I'd better send you some articles and then you can decide if you'll have me or not. No use registering myself uselessly. Thanks anyway. Is there any ID I can mail articles to?

How does one change the layout of one's profile?

I'd like to contribute to that journal you mentioned, Yvette. I have written quite a bit for some other political journals. Perhaps we could discuss the matter sometime.

chauvinism - another besetting sin lol. Australia is traditionally rife with it. It is as baseless as a believe in god *grin* and homophobia! "poofter bashing" was something of a sport when I was growing up - it improved over time - but things do seem to be backsliding these days with the rise of evangelical christianity *spits the words out* :)

I feel for you - it's hard being at odds with your family - I know lol my parents and I had more than one issue we didn't see eye to eye on. My father was very conservative & an officer in the air force - my left wing socialist anti-military views caused lots of fireworks during my teens :)

It never ceases to keep surprising me - the level of faith in the US - Australia and the US are both colonies originally - but we developed so differently - we are so much more secular. That's not to say that the religious right aren't making inroads here because they are. But we have no strong traditions of evangelism and fundamentalism so they are starting from a lower base here. I take it your family wouldn't approve?

*grin* yeah - unfortunately I get long winded :) my problem is more with shutting up than having something to say lol. You say "Atheist, lefty, socialist, humanist, feminist" I wouldn't consider those boring :)
Are you a convert to atheism as many of your fellow Americans appear to be? It wasn't till joining hear today that I really realised the full impact that the religious have on life in the US - people are actually fearful of being identified as atheist - scary! Personally I've never been anything else - for as long as I can remember the whole notion of god belonged firmly with Santa Claus and the tooth fairy :)

That was quick! did you read my profile? lol.

Hi Yvette, I've just joined today and have been poking around reading mostly :) I've enjoyed what you've written and would like to add you as a friend - hope my profile doesn't turn you off :) I'm actually very well read & can hold an intelligent conversation *grin* Love, Michaela xox
