We debate origins of the Universe, life, Earth, humans, religion, atheism, using common sense, evolution, cosmology, geology, archaeology, and other sciences, to repel biblical creationism and other religious beliefs.
Discussion, tools and resources for ensuring online privacy and anonymity. It's no longer a case of "if" these issues will affect you, it's "when". As Joni Mitchell sang - "That you don't know what you've got. Till its gone".See More
Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its 8000 good friends.
A useful group to join, with its 130 discussions and numerous video films, is “ORIGINS” (Origins: Universe, Life, Humans, Evolution, Religion....).
One discussion (over 70 posts) is "Proud to be Atheist". There's much to feel good about
because atheists and humanists hold the intellectual high ground—far from the mental slavery of superstitious people who submit to a narrow-minded controlling clergy with their imaginary god, heaven and hell.
So the group I am trying to help grow is the Delaware Association for Humanism. We just got are affiliation with national humanism and are starting to grow. I know Monica has a 10 yo son. most of the other have grown children. We are still a small group and still establishing individuals.
Here is what is going on in the near future your welcome to come along.
The Delaware Association for Humanism will present Bill Maher's "Religulous" 6:30 p.m. this Wednesday at the Woodlawn Library in Wilmington.
The Delaware Association for Humanism will sponsor a freethinkers forum 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Sunday, May 31st at the Washington Street Ale House in Wilmington. (they're serving brunch)
I'm actually graduating in a week, so I won't be in the area any more. There is an atheist student group at the University of Delaware, which will be run next year by Michelle Rose (firstname.lastname@example.org), so you should contact her if you want to get involved with them. Since it is a student group though, I'm sure it won't be meeting again until September, and you're not likely to find any parents there anyway. There was a Delaware Association for Humanism for a little while, but I don't have valid contact information for its leader any more and I'm not sure it's even still functioning. You could try looking around meetup.com though, I think they had a page there. Beyond that, the nearest atheist groups are in philly, check out www.phillycor.org for more information on them. I hope this helps.
