It's hard finding same people out here. My Andy was the first out atheist I met and I've slowly been finding others, so it's not impossible. And nah I plan on staying here. While the people aren't the best, you can't beat country life. I love the rural environment and our tiny town.
Yeh well, let's just say it's just easier not dating. Don't know if I'd relocate in the west, especially since most of it isn't English speaking. Maybe somewhere within asia or in africa - wherever it's relatively easier and english-speaking.
I think you should especially if your going to be touring since it will allow people to 'like' you, and that tends to spread a name faster then most other ways. As for dealing with comments on facebook about religion ive not dealt with too many but i have a policy that if i am on and i see someone post a 'prayer tree' request or an inspirational nothing ill post something ether atheist or science related to balance it out.
Thanks my mom wanted us to also have her name so two of my sisters also have the same middle name. Man it must be hard to talk to your aunt! There have been many times i thought of just deleting my facebook but it helps me stay in touch with my family which is pretty spread out.
Ah, yes. The site forced me to pick a city. I live in Texas, but in a larger town. However, you are right. The constricted mindset here is quite baffling and I am very ready to leave! Hopefully soon, and somewhere far away!!!!! Haha thanks for the welcome, Joseph :-)
Dude... Just have to say after a year coming here you are always the voice of reason. Do not read more into this compliment than it says. You are more awake then most. I am not crazy, my girl friend is a psychiatrist. Well I'm not crazy unless she is too.
it's amazing the faith's masochism.. if they are blesssed, horay exists.. if they are kicked down it's a test to prove their worthness and horay again...
the ideea is actually quite genial. every dictator would use it. but since I was a little kido I had problems with authority, not in the break the law and get to jail type but more like questioning and analysing each and everything.
I don't say that my line of reasoning is superior but I am aware of the rules applied and of the wrong paths it could have than majority around me. and in my humanistic point of view no creature as low and barbarian worths a lifetime of being screwed, it's immoral... so at least the good god's minds for me were always in question.. fro mthere to there is no reason to believe in it was sort of short way
yeah, if such think as karma wqoulkd have existed I would have been first to have it))) but no, it's just a series of unhappy coincidences.. there is on youtube an experiment made by dawkins about coincidences verry educative..
I think people are more used to see the happy coincidences than the unhappy ones. but someone has to have the unlucky combination, it seems that the apple felt on me.. ce la vie..
Haha, well I was trying to switch over my email address on here and I didn't realize that the address I was trying to switch it to was blocking atheist nexus so the confirmation email was hiding in the spam folder, so I figured I would just cancel my account and make a new one with the other email address, but then I realized the problem so I guess I went through all of that for nothing lol
