The San Diego Neighborhood Atheists and Agnostics Pages

Hi folks,

When I first started this group, I was startled by how many people rapidly joined. Over time it has gained momentum and is now a collection of wonderful people who are inspiring, fun and interesting to talk to. Friendships have formed and every event has become more fun over time. The assistant organizers are wonderful, this group could not continue without their enthusiastic help. Thanks especially to Peter, Ulrich, Kim, Toan and Joe, who have donated the most time and effort to holding some of our most popular events.

Many of the people who have joined have never joined any atheist groups before. The social focus of this group has attracted many who want the benefits of being part of a community, without the religious undertones.

I was inspired to organize this group after reading a cover article on the New Atheists in Wired Magazine. Follow this link if you'd like to read it yourself:

Times are changing and a number of new atheists are out there, young people who don't believe but still want the benefits of belonging to a community. It is possible to start a culture of fun, supportive people who are like-minded, intelligent, creative and yes, even Nice. The article in Wired hinted the possibility of creating communities of atheists like what I describe are possible, as long as the focus isn't on discussion of philosophy. Ironic, but there it is.
