More of the latter - job security, family issues, that sort of thing. On occasion, damage to personal property, like a keyed car. I've never felt endangered, but I don't want to deal with being disowned by my family or a discriminatory boss over something as stupid as religion. I'm open and happy with my friends, and that's enough for me.

Although, not too far from here, there's these psycho-fundies: http://thinkprogress.org/politics/2010/03/04/85107/texas-taliban/

It's rough out here for sure! There are more atheists out here than some would think, but it's hard to find each other sometimes because we have to be pretty careful who we talk to about it.

I'm not sure what to call the thread, or if we really need one?

I have a job that doesn't require much but being able to understand people with an Indian accent, super simple. Lol I wish you the best with your comedy career. Let me know if you're going to perform anywhere near Charlotte.

Hi Joseph! Thanks for the comment. Yeah, I try to go to the ACA meetings when I get a chance.  I noticed you were raised Catholic, I was raised Baptist and de-converted later. Hope you are having a good day.

I meant a web address for the Charlotte group lol thanks. I don't have the required credentials for your line of work, though I wish I did :)

You lucky dog! Three eight hour work days with two days of actual work. I need to be in your business. Could you give me an address?

Hey Joseph, I actually haven't discovered the Charlotte group! Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

Lol, "Pastor Johnny Hunt" runs that church. I remember being forced to go there when I was very young.

 

No college for me yet. Though knowledge is a passion of mine, I love to self-educate. I'm a bit of a dork, I own multiple college books in various subjects; mostly medical and biology. I actually plan on staying around here. The climate is very nice and they crazy "followers" don't scare me much. Plus, there isn't a lot to do around here so having them debate with me and watching their reactions to things they get stumped on is always fun.

 

And yes, Dinosaurs was pretty awesome. I haven't seen it in a long time, brings back memories.

Don't really do much with photography, just too much time to mess around with photoshop.:)

And it's worse than bad around here. It's almost scary really, but I do like to travel to Atlanta every now and again to get away from it. I live about 5 miles away from a literal "Jesus Dome". Not many atheists around here, none within a decent radius that I know of anyhow.

Haha xD I do like fem-slash but good ones are rather hard to find. The guy-slash community usually has waaaaay better writers but they sometimes do write the occasional fem-slash which I enjoy reading~ I tend to stick to reading stuff from my favourite writers and their recs. I like reading Pansy/Astoria from the Harry Potter fandom, actually I like reading Pansy/anyone xD Her voice in fanfiction is ♥

Hi Joseph!

I "deconverted" about eight months ago. I was actually a pagan before that, and a Roman Catholic before that. I was talking with my fiance one day and realized that I was basically saying, "Your Abrahamic god? So irrational. But my ancient Celtic deities, which have no more evidence than the Abrahamic god for existing? Totally real."

As soon as I caught the hypocrisy of it all, I renounced all gods and started identifying as an atheist. (I also felt a little sick inside because I hate hypocrisy more than just about anything else.)

What did it for you?

Greetings, Joseph! I'd like to invite you to a group where we talk about anything on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D

I'll definitely be looking forward to your performance when you find the time to post it up and thanks for the add! =)

I definitely like comedians who don't mind making fun if themselves. The best ones are usually the ones who have the guts to make a fool out of themselves~ I've always admired that about comedians, it takes alot of balls to do that in my opinion. Its different when it around a group of friends compared to in front of an audience full of strangers, I think to much about what others might think of me. Probably a result from being raised having to always "behave" around others.

The situational irony would be hilarious! :)

True :)  I'm actually looking forward to being wrong now!

Ha!!  "IF" we are wrong, I would rather have been skeptical and proven wrong than to have blindly followed or tried to trick a deity anyway :-P
