Ellery! That is a great idea. My husband and a have a 30 week old. I know he would love to do a secular daddy's day out! please keep me posted! I have not been able to make it to any of your wife's functions but I have requested to join! Birmingham is about 45 minutes away for us and I can't convince Cedar to be good long enough by himself in the backseat. He is fine if someone sits with him...off topic, sorry. Please let us know if you start a secular daddy's group, I think that's a great idea. :)

this is a random thought....but I have been thinking it.

My wife attends (and helps organize) - "mom's league of birmingham" meetup....and they are frequently doing playdates and such.

It sounds cheezy, but as a dad of two kids now (one 7 weeks old, one 2.5 yrs) I feel like it could be fun to have a "dad's league"...even better "atheist dads league"? 

Im brainstorming here...but I feel that could be a killer combo...appealing to both our "free thinkers" but also families? 

I have little time I think to do stuff in the daytime like they do for the mom's league, but like a once per month playdate with such folks could be fun?

Yeah, its random...I know...but a thought....like chucky cheeze atheist parent meetup...lol

I picked this up from a friend:

Instead of "thank god"

"thank gods"

It's kinda sticking on me :)

Plus why not diversify thanks and prayers?

Hello primates!
Did you know that Alabama has 24 atheist-friendly social groups now?  I found this article quite interesting, and I think you may as well.
If any of you would like to start your own social group for skeptics in Birmingham or in other cities or towns I would be happy to assist.  I think skeptic groups are generally more cooperative and supportive of each other than competitive with each other.  When a church splits, there is usually alot of anger and hurt feelings.  When a new skeptic group is born, we all say, "Thank God!"  Um...  Well...  Something like that.  Anyway, I'm happy to assist if any of you or your friends want to start a group. 
Cheers!
