Through the Meet-up website.
I am very much in agreement with these goals. I have been immersing myself in skepticism and the pursuit of science. I've been devouring books on science and the make-up of human belief. I am incredibly excited about what I am learning, and I feel as if I am in the midst of an enlightenment that made my religious days seem like a joke.
Support in a transition from incredibly religious (I went to Bible school...) to a lover of skepticism and science. I have a few friends scattered across the country who have made the same journey, but some local solidarity would be great! :)
I was raised in an extremely conservative religious upbringing and within the past few days 'came out' as an atheist to all of my friends and family. It's been a rough journey, and I'm looking for like-minded friends.
