I have not been as active lately here at my first home as an atheist. Rest assured I am not gone.
There are a couple of reasons for this. Primarily my 16 year old son has a rare bone disease and has had to have the first of two total knee replacements.
The second reason that the people here have given me new confidence. I regularly post on Facebook and other sights answering questions about atheism and Christianity. When I first started here I was afraid so I used Compelledunbeliever to hide my identity. After over a year with this community I now often post as David La Deau. I am fond of the moniker Compelledunbeliever so I still use it in various places.
It is great educating people about atheism. I have not found any community that is as intellectually minded or as polite as this group. Most of the contacts I have are all over the place and really have no idea what they are talking about. I have to explain terminology, definitions, and their religion to them before we can have a conversation. Not so here at my true home where I come to learn.
I will be busy with my son for the next few months so I may not be as active, but I am still watching post. I just want to sincerely thank all of you for having the biggest and best impact on my life of any group of people I have ever known. Keep up the good work!
