Re: the "Moment of Silence," you might want to consider contacting the Freedom From Religion Foundation and let them know what the school system has in mind. I'm sure they'd be happy to supply both suggestions and support!
Hi Minus1Kelvin, it's good to see other folks in Greenville. We should try to find enough Atheist in this part of the state to form our own group. I know there are several of us here at East Carolina University. Take care. Tony
-1 Kelvin? That's cold, man, really cold. Really, how cold does stuff get in those cryogenic whatever they are called? Liquid nitrogen, right? (Yeah, I watch the science shows but never get the terminology right.) Anyway, it's nice to see others here in Greenville. Congratulations on your marriage and continued success with school!
Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its 8000 good friends.
A useful science-based group to join, with its 125 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.
