I just wanted to say, I was disgusted by your choice to show up to the lecture yesterday. i've not only followed you, but have spoken to you on many occasions. I never thought you would be as selfish and disrespectful to show up intoxicated, and then further to bash other's religion+race. Not only where you a sore eye, but just embarrassing, for those couple of hours, you really made me sick to my stomach, when you entered the door, with your black Trench Coat, i whispered to my friends, and gloated about how i knew who you where...later i wish i hadn't known you. Thank you.
Welcome to Atheist Nexus. Nice to see that the Washington State element is growing. I live in Vancouver WA.
I enjoy A|N very much. There is lively, diverse, and usually supportive conversation, on lots of topics, and lots of groups. The groups are what we make of them, and the more active we are, the more active the group is. So feel free to share your thoughts and experiences! Browse the groups and see where your interests lie. If none suits your interests, you can see if you can start your own group.
Your discussion topic is one that touches everyone, although not everyone knows it. I'll add 2 cents when I have time to make a more thoughtful contribution. All that I'll say here is that looking at your age (near mine, nearing that time that we call 'maturity'!), I suspect that your experience is different, in many ways, from the millenial generation. Still many challenges, but a different experience.
Anyway, welcome, please join in conversations, and express yourself!
