Greetings, Suzanne! 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.

*omg* You are absolutely right about the picture - I didn't see it until you brought it up! Thanks for pointing it out. It's from a book - Jennifer Government. Completely different than Alex from Clockwork. :) Love the choice of Cat's Cradle. I'm a huge Vonnegut fan.

Hello there, if I'm not mistaken you were the person who nominated Cat's Cradle for this month's Atheist Nexus Book Discussion Club? I read it yesternight and couldn't put it down (finished at 3:30 am). I had read Slaughterhouse Five in high school but after that I almost entirely forgot about Vonnegut. I'd just like to say thanks for suggesting Cat's Cradle to us, I really enjoyed it.

Well I think you are doing wonderfully well in mastering the net :) you found your way here after all *grin*

Thanks for making me your friend - you'll find it easier with time to open up - if you want to :) it's not requisite lol.

I shamefully admit I've always exalted in being different and have gone out of my way to say "here I am - accept me or get fucked - I don't care" *grin*

But of course I live in a secular heaven compared to the States :).

Good for you for putting a picture of yourself here - being a closeted atheist for such a long time. This site may help you be more open about it. Here I am openly atheist and I don't have a picture of myself. I need to upload a current one!

Thanks for the book recommendations. I actually have some of them on my to-read list. Demon Haunted World has been recommended more than once to me, so it must be a good one. Thanks again!

This web site still confuses me. I keep trying to change my photo. Maybe some day.

You're right about early childhood indoctrination, but my memories of childhood attendance at church aren't unpleasant in any way. People were nice, we had fun in the youth groups, I got to wear a cool little starched robe when I sang in the kids' choir, and the annual birth of Jesus pageant was lovely. It just had no depth. I stopped going to church when I had to leave home because there was no reason to go.

You asked about my bad Christian experience. Several years ago I worked for a small Catholic college in Nashville. My supervisor (Zelena) was/is a fanatical Christian. I refused to discuss my feelings about religion with her. In spite of that, we became good friends (well, I thought so). I looked after Zelena and her husband's dog when they had to work late. I drove Zelena to doctor's appointments and stayed with her when tests were being done. Zelena cried her heart out on my shoulder when her grandmother died. She wanted me to take on more responsibility at work. When we returned from a lunch one day, there was a staff meeting. During the meeting, she announced that she was trying to find someone who could fulfill the position which she had told me would be mine. I asked her about it, of course, and she told me that God had told her to put me out of her life.

Tell me about your dog. I have two mutts, Nikki and Grizzly, who are just about in charge of my life.
What's is like to be a truck driver?

I actually grew up in Milwaukee and lived there for almost thirty years. I know it well, but I haven't been back there for twenty-five years. I suppose it's changed by now. Currently, I live closer to Minneapolis. My husband calls it "God's country" (tongue in cheek, of course), and I love living here. Lots of churches and piety, though, so it's relief meeting other atheists.

Hi, Suzanne
I was looking around for others in my age group. There appears to be only two of us women! I didn't become an avowed atheist until about 3-4 years ago. Up until then, I had not given the issue much thought. I was certain that I was uncertain. Drop a line sometime.
