Dr. Ray thanks for your book: "the god virus: how religion infects our lives and culture". I have been on my atheist path for years. I stated one day I am done with religion. I have not completed the book yet but am almost done and will be passing it onto another friend. There are not many atheist in rural Wyoming but we are growing. Is this were I post about either comments or questions about your book?

I loved the "God" virus. Your book certainly resonates with my experience in fundamentalism.

Yes, I checked out your website, and like the concept a lot. It has definitely been a struggle for me coming out of religion. I might be interested in starting a group in my area when and if I find the time for it. Right now I'm going to the local skeptics club meetings, and that is working well for now...

I'm not a recovering religionist I've been sceptical of all manner of things from about the age of 12 onwards but thanks for the friend request - and I'll take a look at the website.

When a member of a religious group gives up his/her religion, could you tell us exactly how the void is filled? As one of these, I do try to fill it with reason, as opposed to authority, but there is always the other side to consider which tends to cancel out any acceptance of any position taken.

Thanks! I am doing a lot of reading and looking around right now. Not sure about starting a group here myself, but we will see. :)

Yes -- please let me know if you are coming to Houston in August. Even though I am not "out" in my community, I have joined some of the Houston Meet-Ups and heard that I missed you earlier this year. Thanks so much for your words of encouragement!

Hi Darrel and thanks for friending me. I am currently reading "The God Virus" and also purchased and gave a copy to a friend. We are both "underground" in our community but her husband is also an atheist whereas mine is Christian (I'm the one who changed, not him). I'm looking forward to the discussions on Atheist Nexus and in the Recovering from Religion group!

Hi Darrel,
Thanks for accepting my friend request. No, I have not read The God Virus yet but are familiar with you. I attended AAI in Burbank last October and American Atheists in Newark. But your book has been recommended to me by a good friend Noelle George of the Secular Center and I plan to pick it up this week. Nice to meet you!

Your book is helping me understand why I am going through what I'm going through right now. I just finished reading about the hypnosis techniques used by the church and part of me was saying "I remember them doing that." And another part saying "Why didn't I put that together myself? I knew about that technique." All I can say is I am very grateful that someone has written a book dedicated to understanding the process of de-conversion. So thank you.

Thanks for the welcome! I'll be moving back to Anchorage, AK and would like to find like-minded people there. I'll most likely start at the UU fellowship. All the best!

Yes, yes, yes....see you tonight. Looking forward to it! I was searching for your speaking schedule and see that you will be in So California the next few days. I'm letting some friends know. Travel safely!!

Excellent lecture today in Memphis. Thanks for signing my book and I'm glad to have given you some good news about it being carried in book stores!

Thanks for letting us know and sorry about the delay on our end. We almost always fulfill order on the same business day they come in.

I received the "I Survived The God Virus" shirt yesterday, and am looking forward to warmer weather so that I can wear it.

I saw that your video with The Atheist Experience is getting a LOT of views on youtube! Great job.... Keep up the good work! I wish that I could have made the speech you gave in Huntsville but I couldn't get off of work. I'm sure I will see you around sometime... We must have an Alabama... atheist convention style throw down again! haha.

Dr. Ray,
I enjoyed your talk at the Atlanta Freethought Society and enjoyed your book even more. Your insight to the self-preservation aspect of the religious virus was particularly enlightening. Ironically, while recently reading Ollie North's Under Fire , I ran across an especially good example of this. In chapter 8, LTC North criticizes Nancy and Ronald Reagan for consulting astrologers. He then says "For the life of me, I can't understand how a man who purports to be a Christian can believe in that malarkey. . . the idea that a man could get up in the morning and let an interpretation of the great sidereal movement guide his day is simply beyond my understanding." I am sure it is!
