In the fall of 2009 I googled for information on Gobekli Tepe. It happens to be one of the oldest monuments/structures of civilization ever found, and news of it really shook the foundations of anthropology. One of the top listings was a great blog about what the Gobekli Tepe site meant in terms of the history of civilization and religion. In the comments section the ideas were flying back and forth and I wanted in to the discussion so I created an account on the site. That site was this site, ThinkAthiest.com! Now, a year and a half later, I'm a very active member.
So, how did YOU come to find ThinkAtheist?
StumbleUpon. I was a little skeptical at first, but after looking lurking this site, though, it seems like there's a lot of well-informed people I can actually have discussions with without the fear of being flamed. Let's just say I'm glad to be around other like-minded people.
Just recently, I was finding facebook more and more boring that I searched for Atheism pages on FB. In search of atheists in my area, I googled it. I found this site and I thought it looked cool.
I learned about the Gobekli Tepe on the TV series "Ancient Aliens."
