When did you realize you were atheist?

When I was about 20 I realized that all religions had to have been made up by people. It seems weird now that it took me that long.... :)

Are you open with you atheism and how did your family and friends respond when you told them?

I don't advertise being an atheist because there are a lot of people in society that aren't yet willing to let go of religion. I just tell people that I'm not very religious, but that I do like good people.

What do you hope to find in a group of freethinkers?

I hope to find people that value honesty, logic, reason, friendship and all the other good parts of human nature without the need to rely on the supernatural. If anyone lives near Oakland Park and wants to have a conversation over coffee, email me!

Do you think atheists groups can alter public opinions of non-theism?

Atheist groups just have to show the public examples of people who can understand the world in terms of reason instead of religion and lead good lives because they have chosen to. I think that appeals to a lot of people.

Introduction

Hi, I joined this group to meet other people who have decided that they want to lead good and happy lives but don't need to appeal to the spirit world for guidance to do so. I like people who are honest, good-hearted.
