I have realized fairly recently that the state I live in harbors next to zero percent of the population as atheists.... Non-theists, agnostics or the like. This state is completely overrun with zealous, religious fanatics.

I'd like to extend an invitation to all non-theists, regardless of state to stay in touch. I could use some support out here.... Feeling completely surrounded by hypocrisy, here.

Hope the day finds you all well!

Cory, I've only visited New Mexico a few times, but always liked it. Obviously, you're more aware than I will ever be, but isn't the farther north you go from Albuquerque - Santa Fe, Taos - the less religious it becomes? 

Cory, being isolated from other atheists is rough on a mind, body and emotions. Do keep in touch, rant as much as you need to, and celebrate with us in all the many ways available to a non-superpower believer. I hope your day goes well. 

Cory check out this link for New Mexico Coalition for Reason.  The other links are all atheist groups in New Mexico with more links on the NMCOR website.  Hope this helps

Cory, the others are right - an online sense of community is rewarding and empowering. Whether you post every day, or once a week, or once a month, or.... you will feel much more connected than you were before joining. Welcome and enjoy, its all about community.

We identify, Cory. I'm surrounded by hypocrisy every day but had no idea that New Mexico was that bad. This world is tough. Believers take god as a "given." This shows in their statements that "god always existed" and nobody created him. To the believer every possible situation in life starts with god as a "given." This is a lunacy that we all have to live with.

Keep talking talking to people about all the non-sense in the Bible so they can see it's not real.

Welcome. Cory. I'm from a state that's religion crazy too. I find alot of comfort and like minded people on AN.
I hope you will too..
Hi Cory, sorry to hear that you are finding it hard to come across more non-believers in New Mexico. I was born there and still have friends and family who live there, and always felt it was a pretty "live and let live" place. Hopefully you will start to meet aome more nonbelievers there. You definitely have a lot of us here!

try this:

maybe you'll find out there are more than you think.  or if it's as bad as you say, you'll be thrown into a psych facility.  tough call.  

i told this nurse (i work with a lot of nurses) who i've only known a few weeks that i'm an atheist.  she said she was too, but she was drunk, and the next day said she simply "believes in a higher power".  which is probably bullshit, but still...

Cory, to what do you attribute the unusually high percentage of “believers” in New Mexico?

Hi Cory...so nice  to  meet you and welcome  to Atheist Nexus....I am fairly new to this site and   to being  an Atheist....It all started  when I googled  Atheism and  learned  about  Humanism...They sent me a book  titled Non Believer Nation  by  David  Niose....Wow... it opened  my eyes to  non Theism and answered  all my questions...I finally  felt  like  I belonged....Since then  I became  obsessed  with  intermingling  with  fellow  Atheists/Humanists  and  came across  this  site...It is amazing   how many  forums  and  blogs  are here and how easy  it is  to reply.......I strongly encourage you to peruse the site and read  the various  forums and blogs....You will learn so much and get to know  a  diverse  group  of wonderful  Atheists  like  yourself.....People  from all over  the world  are members  which  makes  it  all the  more  rewarding........There is even  a chatroom   which you may want to explore....I am  very sorry that  you  live in  such a state that  treats  Atheists  in such a negative way.....But just remember  you will have plenty  of like minded  people here who  will befriend you and  welcome  you..........See you soon.........
