Greetings, Laura! 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.
Yeah, there is nothing like Red Wings hockey. That's for sure. And I am a Spartans fan too! My dad went to MSU, so it's kinda been bred into me. lol Just like the Detroit stuff.
Trust me, I know exactly what you mean. I was very happy to find this site. It's amazing how much the Religious Right wants to run everyone's life....and how much they are against the Constitution that allows us nonbelievers to be just as much a part of their society as anyone else. They would much rather just not those of us critical thinkers around. So, yes, this site is a way to remind yourself that mankind is not totally screwed....yet.
So what's your story? How'd you become an atheist...or have you always been one? And do you openly profess it?
