Greetings, Erin! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
Welcome to Atheist Nexus----the world of reasoning, rational sense, free-thinking and with very many thousands of good friends.
Join groups in Nexus when you can, and follow and comment as you wish.

founder of the busy group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Humankind, Religion, Darwin..." with its 135 discussion topics and videos.
The group seeks to understand the mysteries of anything including the universe, and how life and humans and religion and everything began. There's a lot to talk about. You will be welcome.
