I'm an atheist, and have been most of my life. I've always been a person who questions everything, and demands evidence. It's exciting to see so many people of reason finally communicating, and speaking out about the real issues our society faces. So I find myself wanting to get involved, and join the conversation.
Yeah, I know what you mean, in your About Me section. It's sad that it's the hyper-religiosity of the Bush Administration and the current Republican Party that is helping make this a reality, but it's good that we finally have the discussion on the national table. I guess I'll take it.
Hopefully, now that the internet is a commonly-available thing, we can prevent the slide back down into the current religious environment of the early 2000's, once we dig our way up and out. The current crop of teens and 20-somethings is looking hopeful.
