Welcome, Catherine, to North of Seattle Atheists! What brings you to skeptical inquiry and rational thought? Did you break away from religion, or have you always been skeptical of religious claims, as i have?
North of Seattle Atheists & Agnostics Meetup is a monthly gathering of atheists, agnostics, skeptics, Humanists, secularists, nontheists, deists, and believers who enjoy sharing ideas, challenging traditional religious beliefs, and questioning the notion that religion should continue to enjoy respect merely for religiosity sake. I also want to make it so nonbelievers can have a place to meet, so we know that there are people out there like us.
