Hi Julie, and welcome to this rational world of Internet atheism---a haven of truth and peace from the superstitions and fictional gods of the masses.

We invite you to make good friends by joining the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Gods, Atheism, Evolution, Darwin..." with nearly 500 discussion topics and nearly 2800 members.
Hey, another local! I'm glad to see that there are SOME in Texas who aren't extreme right wing Christians (and probably not heavy duty social conservatives either). I just signed onto this site about a week ago, and I always get (semi) excited when I see another Texan sign up. Cheers.
