Thanks for the welcome.  I wished I lived in New York in order to attend the event. I am hoping to find a group closer to Chicago. One of the reason I was looking for an African American group because I find myself getting angry with my theist relatives because I cant talk to them about how I am feeling. 

I've lost a number of relatives and it is hard to continuing hearing that they are in a better place. 

I was looking at a debate of Neil Degrasse Tyson. He talked about why we atheist should be more tolerant with theists because they can't help it especially in light of the percentage of people who believe and a good percentage of African American are theists. Not only that 40% of scientist are theists that is what we should be concerned about. Now I can tolerate my family.

Eddie,

We're having a special day. Hope you can come.

"CFI-Harlem/Harlem Humanists will be gathering on Sunday February 26th to celebrate Day of Solidarity for Black Non-believers. This is a time to get together and enjoy bright minds and warm personalities. There's a noble story of freethought from within the African American and Pan-African tradition. This is a chance to connect with this tradition and each other. We'll begin at 1pm. The place is 583 Riverside Dr. in the "Brick Room". It's free. Just e-mail (harlem@centerforinquiry.net) or call (646-820-CFIH) for all the details." RSVP, if you can.

See you there.

My riding buddy and I did the California, by way of the Grand Canyon, ride last year.  I was able to spend a half day at the Round Up last year here in the ATL.  Five years ago I was in Orlando in school and wasn't able to make it.  I ride and on and off duty and don't spend much time at large rallies.  I've been riding all my life alone and within the last 5 or so years, I've ridden with my buddy out of Virginia.  We served together and he's trying to catch up with me with miles and experience.  Not gonna happen.  I've got a few guys who are going all the way with me next year and a few others who will ride out to SD with me.  Either way, you're more than welcome and you're gonna love it.  We've got a 'guys only' ride to New Orleans later this month.  There are 5 of us this trip.

Hey Eddie.  Saw your comments and was glad to hear from you.  I'm in the ATL and take a long distance ride every year.  Trying to keep a low profile this year as I'm planning on heading to Anchorage next year.  This will be the ride of a life time and I'm planning it very carefully.  Anytime you're in my area, give me a shout.  I'll take you to the Dragon and see what you got.  Take care.

Greetings, Eddie! I'd like to invite you to a group where we talk about anything on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D

You mentioned a conference in Seattle that you attended. Was it an atheist conference, or something related to work/hobbies? I'd definitely make the drive to Seattle to attend an atheist conference.

 

That's a sweet bike, incidentally.

I am out about my atheism at work. I don't have any repercussions from my employer or my co-workers. My question is how do I address my friends in the Black community regarding atheism. I am not trying to deconvert anyone, I am just wanting to challenge them to start thinking outside the box. One friend said I should just let them stay in their comfort zone and not point out the negative parts of religion. What is your opinion on this matter?

You are not alone in the black community. Norm Allen is a staff writer for the Center for Inquiry, Amhurst, NY. Reginald Finley is the founder and host of Infidel Guy Show. You are not alone in the atheist community either. Welcome.
