My email sent me a meetup notice about this group because I had checked Atheism as an interest on the Meetup site.
I've been an atheist since I was age 10, but I didn't know the word at that time. The unethical behavior of god in stories made me suspicious it was untrue, and the inconsistencies of the real world and my families religious attitude finalized it for me.
Fun events like hikes, going to local shows together, or giving back to the community like blood drives. What I get from this community is sharing common interests, concerns, and pet peeves. I have found other atheists to have many interests, to have developed skepticism and a desire for evidence. We are varied, but I notice common threads in our lives.
I am passionate about science, work in the computer industry, enjoy hiking, reading, and watching scifi.
This is such a wonderful group of people. Everyone shares interesting topics and viewpoints. I really enjoy this group.
