I just read 'Where Did God Go in Afghanistan? An Atheist Writes' (via a Facebook post). My husband has been dealing with religious nonsense his entire military career. What was said in that article is some of what my husband is complaining about. Like you were ... my husband is a Foxhole Atheist.
I'm a fellow atheist and a science fiction/fantasy writer. Through Project EBook Drop on Smashwords, I and other writers are making our e-books available for free to deployed military personnel. Larry Center tells me that, through Military Atheists, you can help publicize the project. For further information and to enroll in the project, people can contact Ed Patterson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for helping to spread the word.
its nice to meet people of similar backgrounds and beliefs(or non-beliefs, lol). My wife and I also ride and dive. I'm deployed right now but will be home in a few months, hopefully a mild texas winter is in store so I can get some riding in.
