Hi to you Keith, wonderful day to you also. I cannot imagine coming from a place like CA to this place. I came from OK and I get nervous here...
Thx for the welcome.
Ruh roh, we're overrunning the place - ack
Thanks Keith! Appreciate the welcome.....and the ONLY people I know in my area that are non-theist are the Freethinkers group here in SA....San Antonio and generally anywhere in the bible belt, people get creepy crawleys if you mention anything antireligion or planned parenthood etc.....I find myself biting my tongue on many occasions....I am sure you have found this to be true as well....its just not worth the uproar to try and educate the sunday school crowd....PS: Very sorry for your recent losses....
Thanks, Keith! Lawdhammercy, I'm glad to be here! I can have intelligent, stimulating discussions with people that won't draw a gasp from religious nutbags (like my family). I tried to find a meetup group close to home, but Arlington is the closest that I've found (Metroplex Atheists).
well, in all fairness, i did spend most of my life on the (heathen) east coast.. but yes, my entire extended family is very religious...and republican..so I feel you pain in being surrounded by a completely alien culture
