Hello all.  I've been searching for an atheist site/forum to join for a long time but I never found one that really clicked until I stumbled upon this one.

I'm 39 and live in KY, USA.  I've been a (strong)atheist for about 25 years.  Thanks to all involved for creating a site that is exactly what I was looking for.

Welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forum.

Our revels now are ended. These our actors, | As I foretold you, were all spirits, and | Are melted into air, into thin air; | And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, | The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, | The solemn temples, the great globe itself, - Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, | And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, | Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff | As dreams are made on, and our little life | Is rounded with a sleep. - Shakespeare

The path to Truth lies via careful study of reality, not the dreams of our fallible minds - me

Howdy! I felt the same way

Howdy! I felt the same way when I first joined. I still have not found any place that rivals it for my tastes. Perhaps Pharyngula comes close, as well as Why Evolution is True and Butterflies and Wheels, but I prefer forums to blog comments.

More atheists? Wisky Tango

More atheists? Wisky Tango Foxtrot. Like the world needs more rational people in it.

Next you're going to tell me pink unicorns don't exist.
