Greetings from Austin, TX!
I'm from the East Coast originally but living in Austin, TX. Not the most atheist-friendly place in the world, but better than a lot of other cities in TX. I've been strongly atheist since infancy, as far as I can tell. For 50 years I have been searching for a way to not only revel in my atheism but to be DO about it. Imagine my thrill at finding an activist site. So much time seems wasted feeling powerless and being angry about that. I hope that there will be interesting information here to combat that and interesting discussions to further my thinking and beliefs.
FYI, the "God Loves You--This Prayer Will Change You" banner ad puzzled me for a moment, but then that seems awfully open-minded and fair from an activist site, so I'm sold.
