I've been an atheist since my teens and now that I'm a mom I feel it's more important than ever to surround myself with like-minded intellectuals. Being a Freethinker is one thing, but raising a Freethinker is another.
A member of another online forum mentioned meetup.com for mommy groups. So while I poked around, I decided to search "Freethinker" in my area. So glad I did!!
Atheist. I've seen the more recent labels: Secular Humanist, Skeptic, etc and perhaps I'm a little of some of those things but at the end of the day I'm a staunch atheist.
Intellectual stimulation and support. I've been an "out" atheist for many years but now that I'm a mom people assume that I've become a believer because I've experienced a "miracle." What a crock. I don't need God to have a profound experience.
Well hey there lady! Good to see you here! :)
