I think you're right about the groups migrating to other social sites. The Caribbean group seems to have more or less moved to Facebook, which is how a lot of groups around here organize for meet-ups. I see what you mean about population density too...I live on an island of about 35,000, and the next closest island has about 15,000. I looked at the members of that Caribbean Facebook group, and don't think many of them live anywhere near here. I don't do Facebook and don't think that group is worth it to join. So I'll have to find community here :-)

And yes, I meant Geek & Nerd Haven. I'm definitely more in the Nerd category than Geek. I was happy to see that group, and the Atheist Humor group with the FSM icon front & center.

I agree, some vegans are really obnoxious. But in my own personal experience, I think I've encountered more obnoxious carnivores who are very uncomfortable with my eating choices, as though that affected them somehow. Vegetarians make carnivores uncomfortable the same way nonbelievers make believers uncomfortable.

And yup, sometimes you've gotta pull out the insecticide. I do my best to deter entry or gently remove, but I live in an ant- and roach-intensive area and it's not practical to get rid of them any other way. I work as a personal chef out of my home and can't have them running around. And the mosquitoes around here are awful! I don't feel bad about killing them at all since they carry some serious diseases here. There is no mercy or stay of execution for a mosquito in my house.

Thanks for your guidance and info. You've been a great help!

Lol good call with the computer uninstall. Not only ethical, that should keep me off the blacklist of our future A.I. Overlords.
Thanks for the advice. I originally came to this site hoping to connect with atheists in my region and maybe meet them face to face, but that group (Caribbean) hasn't been active for years. Another group is the Vegetarian/Vegan, officially dead. If you aren't vegetarian, you may be surprised to learn there's a lot of political, economic, and religious arguments pertaining to it. Some groups im interested in,like the Nerds,are more active, but i don't know if ill join. Either way, thanks for letting me know the groups can be more broadly focused than they seem

LMAO about the A.I., thanks for the laugh. Altho i am in favor of treating A.I. ethically too, i admit ive had some thoughts of committing violence against my computer from time to time ;-)
Thanks for the nice welcome. I joined some groups that seem more active, others im interested in don't seem to have any recent activity. But glad to join this community all the same.

I looked at the exchanges you suggested. What you call ballistic attack does seem within the AN guidelines. I'm opinionated too. Tom does seem to enjoy arguments. You show admirable restraint.

Thanks Joseph. I deleted my address in the website field. I also added a photo.

To tell you the truth, I didnt see any trolling or maybe I didn't notice it so its all good as long as people aren't hurting each other.

Thank you sir....victim of auto fill I'm guessing

Thanks for the welcome.  I'm still figuring out how this forum works.  Yeah a bit isolated out here.  My husband and I aren't local to this area as we are both west coasters.  We like it here but aren't convinced that it is the safest environment for our lil non believers.  They are a bit more frank and outspoken than us adults about the absurdity of religion.  I teach them to respect other's beliefs and promote tolerance buy my oldest isn't good at coddling others and their unicorns.  She gets bullied in school for her non beliefs and I worry that this could get worse as she gets older.

Thanks for the warm welcome. Sorry for the late response,

Thank you for the welcome. Not sure if it's possible to reply to your comment on my page but I'm sure I'll learn as I go.

Also, I *did* exhaust meetup.com. The only atheist group around here was more interested in board games than doing anything else like book discussions or traveling to see speakers. Ho hum.
