Matthew Winfield here. Contrary to our fun at the meeting, I believe you should keep the title president and preside over meetings. Atheists need all the respect that they can get. Sometimes it may not look like it, but we are all gearing up around the world; mentally, to combat ignorance. I believe Tucson has about one million people within its walls. There were about twelve at the meeting. More organization and development is necessary. As atheism stands, it seems a little tricky trying to combat religion with a system that says. "do not believe that system." Atheism appears to the people as a negation of a creation and it is. Once we have all stopped believing in very flawed beliefs that get humans and animals hurt, what are we to do then. I foresaw this over ten years ago. Here is what we do. Create something to believe in that is based on current research and that is undeniable to the average person, just like we would have loved to do in the first place, but were, obviously, unable. This is what I spent my life doing and now, with the pre-launch of Matthew 10:10; Travels of an AwarenesS, I am doing all that I can to raise awareness. "Awareness of what?" is the typical question. "Everything," is my atypical answer. Yes that was to say "atypical." I will be in Tucson until I can afford to leave back to CO where my daughter grows strong and quickly. So far, I have nothing but green lights and there is little reason to think that the people will not be welcoming this movement. These types of changes usually take a lot of time and require us to build slowly everyday. I would love to still be in touch with your organization many years down the road as we keep pushing, learning and changing as a human race. Atheism is not know for affirming any belief in anything. This is simply because there has been nothing worth while that people have notice. Taoism has been around thousands of years and we didn't latch on to that beautiful philosophic system. So, we keep trying. Hence, Energeticism; The COPYRIGHTED idea that we are the finite amount of energy of the universe, aware of itself and manifesting itself as energetic representation. That is what these words are, and that is what I am, before I even consider myself human, brown, atheist. I am energy thinking to say that I will be an Energeticist. For details on what that entails, obtain a copy at Marketplace 10:10. I designed these ideas to help in your atheistic cause. We move forward.
Matthew Winfield, BA, R.O.S.E.
