“ It's nice to receive notifications. Thanks. Requiring me to use the star-rating system is annoying because I can't put a qualifier in there (like, "On the one hand this, but on the other . .."). It's too cut-and-dried. ”

— Ken N. on Jan 24, 2012.
“ Others should join the group so they can know they are not alone in their belief system. In your communtity there are others like you that have thrown off the shakles of mythology and have outgrown the fables that they were indoctrinated into as children. Knowing there is a community out there that feel as you do is a very empowering experience ”

“ This wasn't really an organized meet up. Had no idea who I was looking for... hung around for a while, but since it was the first meetup I was attending I didn't know anyone. Someone should have been charged with having a sign. ”

“ great and very informative. for enlightenment ”

“ I have been an Atheist since I was 9 (Agnostic at 7!)) and my parents thought it was fine and didn't care if I didn't believe though they were believers and thought I would come to my senses but then I started reading quotes from the Bible and they knew I knew too much and stopped the nitrous oxide (too bad) and removed the gag. I just want to thank my family for accepting, in their way, deviant family members too. I went to a meeting before I was a member and the people were cliquish. Some were very nice and we made our own clique and it was dueling cliques. Maybe things have changed? That was about 4 years ago at Costi? And all the nice people sounded like they were not coming back and there was talk of an Atheist Inquisition from the bad clique. I told them I knew someone who knew martial arts and I could hire religious thugs mercenaries. I sound odd but if your reaction is too reject me this makes me question your open-mindedness. ”
— Mike M. on Feb 23, 2011.

— Melinda B. on Sep 8, 2010.

“ I love it!. Where else can you meet so many different kinds of people who are all atheists? It is such a relief to be among people where you don't have to watch what you say. It's nice to meet people who know what my American Atheist medallion is, rather than freaking out when they are told what it is. ”
— Michelle M. on Nov 2, 2006.
“ I didn't meet up with the group, per se - I haven't yet attended any meetings, but enjoy the meet-up announcements, because through them, I've been able to catch Dr. Tyson and PZ Myers speak. ”
— Blake C. on Mar 3, 2009.

“ Being an atheist or agnostic can be pretty lonely sometimes. There is also so much right-wing prejudice against anyone who does not believe in God. ”
— William S. on May 21, 2010.
“ Rather than think of the Meetup as a "group dinner" at a long table, perhaps it could be held more as a "cocktail party" where people could mingle in smaller groups thruout the evening; it would give each person a better chance to meet all the others. ”
— Joe D. on Feb 24, 2006.
