Problem is that my wife is an ambivalent atheist/agnostic... I'm a fervent anti-theist... I have no plans to 'out' myself to our religious friends, but I wouldn't mind hanging out with some people who aren't bible thumpers. I know that there's only 2 families on my street that regularly go to church, however I doubt the others are atheists

Yeah, when in doubt, check out Meetup.com.  Lots of local atheist groups use that.

The OBX is a quasi-liberal enclave on the outskirts... lots of transplants from the northeast - just surprised that there's no group of free-thinkers out here.... maybe I need to change that. I saw something when I googled about a meet-up in Elizabeth City....

I guess me and my wife count as a group... we're 2. 4 if you consider our children, but they're too young to really know yet

There are atheists out that way.  I think there's a group that's centered around Elizabeth City.  The population is just spread so thin in northeastern North Carolina, it's almost impossible to get more than 3 or 4 together, at any given time.  You need a much higher population density to sustain a group composed of people who are a minority (particularly in rural areas) and tend to be relatively anti-social.

Greetings fellow tarheel atheists. My name is Jeremy. I am a 'don't ask, don't tell' anti-theist who lives on the Outer Banks. Any other OBXers on here?

The OBX is a conundrum, in regards to being in the bible belt... The bible thumpers are out here, just not as vocal - so as not to scare away the tourists

You got that right. I started a group on Facebook called the "Western NC Freethought Society". Feel free to look us up. I'm gonna be trying to put a meetup together soon. That goes for everybody. Check us out. ;-)

Nice to meet you, Ricky. We are scarce as hen's teeth up in here!

Cool, Edward. Lenoir, here.........

I'm in Morganton. In the midst of an ocean of fundamentalists, I've found a cluster of free thinkers.
