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

I had a friend who sabotaged his career in science for his creationist beliefs. In trying to dissuade him, I came across the writings of Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins. Now I think an agnostic is just an atheist who hasn't really thought about it.

What do you hope to get out of this group?

Meeting some like-minded individuals.

What do you feel you can offer the group?

intelligent and thoughtful discussion.

Introduction

I was raised "agnostic." I realize that my folks had told me to say that, because it's somehow socially acceptable, while calling yourself an atheist, especially in Rural America, is like walking around with a scarlet letter on your chest.
