What do you hope will come out of participating in this meet up?

I will meet some interesting, simpatico people outside of the cultural bubble that is Portland; get a better sense of the religious climate elsewhere in Oregon; and maybe even decide to relocate to McMinnville or thereabouts.

Tell us about how you came to be a freethinker.

As it was more than 50 years ago, it's hard to remember how exactly I came to realize that the Bible was a work of fiction and religion just did not make sense.


A Philadelphia area native, I have also lived in NYC, the Boston, MA, area, Chicago, and Fargo, working as a teacher, writer, and policy analyst. I have been an atheist since I was 12.
