Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its 10,700+ good friends and discussion groups.
Among the groups, may I suggest you try the busy group “Origins: Universe, Life, Humans, Evolution, Religion.....” with its 160 commonsense topics whose discussions rebuff religious nonsense. You will be welcome.

Good question. I'd love to hear some responses. I coached gymnastics for about 10 years and in a pretty "bible belt" region. I never said bless you to sneezes and just smiled when a parent would comment on how their little one included me in their prayers at night. It'd be nice if some of the kids I influenced saw me as a good person, a role model, and wouldn't think less of me if they later found out I was an atheist the whole time.
