When did you admit to being an atheist?

Self-described agnostic until late teens, then a theist until about 2004, then agnostic until about 2006, now atheist on inductive logical grounds (i.e. evidence does not support existence of any sort of deity).

Who's your favorite freethought 'hero'?

Thomas Paine (albeit he was a Deist). I loved his "The Age of Reason", which was one of the first books I read in the process of my "deconversion."

What's the stupidest religious idea you've ever heard?

So much stupidity & insanity, so little space. For now, anything to do with the "Rapture" is high on the list. The Islamic "There is no God but God" is a great example of the fallacy of "begging the question."


I started to "deconvert" from theism (esp. Christianity) about 4 years ago. I want to meet and share thoughts with other non-theists.

What Chuck A is saying about this Meetup Group

Interesting discussion topics, nicely organized and moderated, congenial people, relaxed atmosphere, decent food, ample parking. What's not to like? I expect to learn something new every meeting.
