Greetings, Sarah! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
Hi Sarah in sunny Boston, I chickened out of your winter ordeals after four years in southern NH. I've been following your writing on the subject of Atheist bashing experiences. The oldest of my three twin daughters (I'll explain it all some day) is open about her lack of belief in the supernatural. She has alluded to some strong words being spoken in social studies debates but surprisingly little open bigotry. I say surprising since her high school is nestled firmly in the belly button lint immediately below the bible belt. I'll pass on a link to your work in case she has anything of interest to share with you.
I didn't expect to run across you here, but I'll take the opportunity to say how much I enjoyed the last Apologia podcast you were on, and the great tales you got the boys to share. Good luck on your book!
Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its 8900+ good friends and discussion groups.
Among the groups, try visiting perhaps the busy group “ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Humans, Evolution, Religion.....” with its commonsense discussions to repel religious nonsense. You will be welcome.
One is "Proud to be Atheist" (74 posts) seeing that atheists and humanists hold the intellectual high ground compared with the pathetic superstitions of the god followers. Similarly, “Religion is aberrant, atheism is truth” (42 posts).
