Welcome, Clayton! Glad you could join us. :D
Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends. You might also like Real Talk for New Atheists.
I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the Texas climate is changing so drastically.
After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.

Greetings fellow Texan! Welcome to the site! We have a Texas Heathens Group you might like to join.
Welcome to this world of rationality, truth and peace, where common sense and science lead to freethinking wisdom --- as you know as a true atheist.
We invite you to join the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Gods, Atheism, Evolution, Darwin..." with 700 discussion topics and 3600 members.
