Introduction

Hi. I'm an atheist, so I should fit right in here.

What factors influenced you to emerge as a non-believer in a believing society?

Was raised Catholic. Read the Bible when I was 6. (Bored in church.) Got to the part with the rape and incest. Could not believe they handed this book to a child. Decided I didn't believe. Found some books on evolution when I was 8, never looked back.

What do you hope to get out of this group?

Connection with other people who don't need religion.

What do you feel you can offer the group?

I've been very ill many times, (I have systemic lupus) and very close to death. I feel that many people who get sick get scared and I think that there's actually no reason to reach for religion in the face of illness. It bothers me that so many hospitals are affiliated with religious organizations.

    Hi! Just saw that we might meet at Bansi's on Sunday. Maybe the possibility of car-pooling to Denver events like Cafe Sci exists?
