When did you realize you were atheist?

A bit of a gray area there...I think I THOUGHT I was an atheist a long time ago...but after years of "trying on" religion in varying forms, I just started doubting...and then one day...I guess I realized I was an atheist! :-)

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

I am open as needed. I carry a flag around, but I am not 'ashamed' to state proudly that I am an atheist. Reactions are varied...mostly positive with the occasional shock here and there.

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

A way of dealing with 'believers' in a way that allows good dialog and not confrontation. (whenever possible)

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

Absolutely.
