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?
I found think atheist to be refreshing with a pleasant minty aftertaste.
I used to frequently post on rockclimbing.com. One of the forums on the site is just for politics, so religion was mentioned frequently (generally in a negative way). Along comes a Christian with no connection to rock climbing whatsoever, wanting to jump in to enlighten us about his religion. I googled his username to see if he just wandered the weblands looking for atheists to chat up, which quickly led me here.
