When did you realize you were atheist?

After all the RC brain washing I became disenchanted very quickly as soon as I left school. Did years of research, to no conclusion until I realized I did not need or believe in god, I now have harmony in my daily life.

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

Yes I am out of the closet but friends were negative and I think it is because my unbelief is seen as a threat.

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


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

In time I believe we can loose some of the negative press.


I was born in England in 1937. Spent 12 years being educated at a RC Boarding School. Came to the States in 1973 after living in NY for one year. Have been married twice, I am NOT looking for a dating service.
