    Good talk, lively speaker, great camaraderie. It's nice to find out that we Atheists have been a voice throughout history-- often suppressed but nevertheless hanging in there thoughout eons. It's time we came out of the proverbial closet.

    This guy's book is making a big splash in the publishing world. I'm insisting that all our Advanced Writers Group members go to this. Atheists have been reviled for centuries but as I understand it, Stephens makes us the good guys.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
