Yes. I was pretty open about it somewhere around 8th or 9th grade.
No. I don't make it the first point of conversation, but I don't hesitate to tell someone when asked.
Somewhat. I know other atheists but not to a large degree socially.
Yes. It's why I searched out this group.
Not a whole lot other than openly discussing religion and atheism whenever I have a chance. I try not to put people down for their beliefs but try to lead them in a discussion that pokes holes in their belief system. They may not be converted immediately, but I hope that I plant a seed that will germinate and grow.
Recently moved back to Olympia. Have been an atheist since around 4th grade. My father was a Mennonite minister and neither he nor anyone else in the church could give good answers to my questions so I early on knew something was wrong.
