Re: [atheists-55] Web content question(s)

From: Mark
Sent on: Saturday, February 6, 2010 7:49 PM
1.  What does everyone do for a living?

Web Developer for an Annapolis Junction company that sets up tech expos and conferences for government and military groups.

2.  Who, and how many, of us have abandoned religion?

I've always been an atheist. I was born into a non-religious family.

3.  What fallout from abandoning religion have we faced?

Not from abandoning (since I didn't) but just from being an atheist, I've gotten the usual flak from co-workers. Attempts at conversion, being given Chick tracks. The usual garbage. No one at my current company knows I'm an atheist, but only because the subject has never come up.

4.  How long ago, or at what age, did you walk away?

N/A

5.  What level of education do you have?

Some college

6.  City or country?

Catonsville, MD

7. What hobbies do you have?

Aikido, Sci-fi, gaming (computer and table-top RPG). One thing I've been doing lately is putting together a steampunk costume to wear to the San Diego Comic Con this summer.

8.  Are you raising kids?  If so, are you raising them secular or just not mentioning it?

No kids, but if I did have some I would teach them critical thinking skills, and tell them about what different people believe and why they are just ancient myths. Inoculate them before someone else gets to them.

9.  What is your vision for GBAC?

Putting together public events, debates, that kind of thing.
