YaraMC

Organizer

Location:

Orange, CA

Organizer since:

October 8, 2008

Tell us a bit about yourself; your age, how long you've been an atheist (or have been interested in atheism) and some of your personal interests that may or may not be affected by your nonbelief.

I'm over 39, ha! and have been a hard atheist for many many years. I'm in sales and love helping my clients. Am chronically happy 99% of the time. People are very surprised when I tell them I'm atheist--they don't expect a's to be happy & optimistic!

Tell us how you think you will benefit from our group and our conversations and likewise, how will we benefit from you as a member?

I love organizing this group because I get to meet such interesting atheists who have so much to say for themselves. I would like to think that I contribute to the conversation.

Please acknowledge that you understand that this particular group doesn't debate believers in our meetings or otherwise engage in activism--there are other groups in OC for those things.

I put this in so we can avoid in this venue the desire that some have to stir up controversy, when it is so unnecessary. There is no supernatural. There is no need for debate!

Introduction

Call me Yara. Both at work and at home I'm surrounded by conservative believers. It would be nice to get together with like minded people who don't need the supernatural to feel safe about the world! Give me reality any day!

What YaraMC is saying about this Meetup Group

We are a thoughtful group, and very welcoming to those who are new to the group and new to dealing with all issues as an atheist. All those willing to come and deal graciously with us are more than welcome. I also request that members keep other agendas from other groups away from our conversational format. If there is a perception that the conversation is being high-jacked, that person will be asked to leave and their membership will be declined.
