Sometimes, a lot of times, I feel quite alone here.
Aside from my husband, I don't know any other atheists in the real world. Living here in Ohio, southern Ohio, I'm surrounded by religion and conservative mindsets... I came out recently as atheist to friends and lost several. They were too close-minded to accept me for what I am. These are people I've known for almost 20 years!
It's sad and it's disturbing.
I am 99.99999% certain there is no God. Why are so many others so unwilling to see what I see? Will they ever see? If we're right, why are we the minority?
But I guess it's that way with a lot of things. Pro-legalization people are in the minority and we're right. Those in favor of gay marriage and homosexual equality are in the minority (or so it seems), but we're right... Is this just the way it goes? Unpopular truths have to start out with a small following and gain ground?
I really need atheist friends who are local. Stat!
