I am a lifelong Atheist. Never had faith and do not understand it. Sometimes I wish I had a cool de-conversion story but I do not. Recently I got together with a buddy of mine and we just got involved in the local godless scene here in Buffalo NY. We started a blog, offensiveatheists.blogspot.com, and we are planning to get a group of the local freethinkers together in the hopes of raising enough money to go to TAM (The Amazing Meeting) in 2012. How? Idunno. We are starting now though.
Any Buffalo Freethinkers please contact me and we can get the whole group doing something. There are coffee talks and there was a pot luck (my first since I was a kid) and the speakers at the Center for Inquiry. Good times!!
