Do people around you know you are an Atheist?

Yes. Not my boss though, he's evangelical and likes to qoute the bible... A lot... I don't wish to be fired or rock my employment boat (contract worker for the past 4 years I can be fired for any reason at any time).

Are you afraid to tell people you are an Atheist?

Not really. I get some bad reactions, but can hold my own in a debate. It's just when they turn into screaming harpies do I have an issue.

Do you feel alone because you are an Atheist?

Yes. I've lost some friends on my road through life. I don't have the comfort that most have that I will be reunited with my mother or grandparents when I die. On that same note I find it allows me to value the time I have now much more and value conscious life higher than most. If this is the one life I have, I want to live it and hopefully be remembered.

Are you interested in meeting other FreeThinkers face to face?

Very much.

What are you doing to help the movement?

That's a very good question. My day to day tasks seem to consume far too much of my time. I work as a videographer and bite my tongue around my more religious clients. I've been developing a video game on my off hours for the past 4 1/2 years. Which consumes most of my free time. I do tend to donate money to various charities under the Atheist banner. I also support microloans and Kiva, occasionally with a bit of atheist propaganda note. I started to add the note, because a majority of those donating to Kiva or investing in microloans have a TON of religious prosthelytizing in their note, that begs the recipient to accept the (usually Christian) God. Mine tends to ask them to think rational, help others and try to improve the world through their own works. Because, it will take the work of man to fix man's problems.

Introduction

Hi, would like to meet other Atheists. Sadly most of my more liberal friends tend to go the spiritual, crunchy granola route, exchanging one fictional sky god for another. Would like to meet other more rational people.
