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

My inclination to be a contrarian (usually just for the hell/purgatory of it) got me to the edge, then a huge shove from the radical religious fundies motivated me to make the big leap.

What do you hope to get out of this group?

Despite what my history of meetup participation would suggest, I see the group as a means to meet and (at least ocassionally) interact with like-minded freethinkers - I'm always hoping some of the intellectual brilliance in the community will rub off on me. I also very much appreciate that I can count on the group to disseminate information about events/presentations/lectures that are more often than not very stimulating and entertaining (e.g. Sam Harris at CU, Sean Carroll at the museum, etc.).

What do you feel you can offer the group?

Hmmm... I'll be sure to post something when I figure that out.

Introduction

A generally mild-mannered, live-and-let-live atheist... but militant to the degree believers try to restrict my intellectual freedom - particularly when it comes to government involvement with religion.
