Hello everyone!
I've been wanting to join a non-internet atheist community in my area for quite some time (and I luckily live in a place where these are not lacking), but I do not have the time to commit to any organized group (I'm a full time graduate student) that meets physically. I've been an atheist since I was about seven, but never actually heard the term "atheism" until high school, and even then it took me a while to discover that that is what I was. I've been following the online atheist movement for about a year but never really participated in any discussion, I've always wanted to, but never ended up doing it. I never have any place to discuss my non-belief, or my political views, because while most of the people around me do agree with me, they are not quite as absorbed in it to want to talk about it all the time, and they also seem to get a bit put off when they see how passionate (read as: pissed off) I get about some issues. So, here I am, diving in, and hoping to find a place where I can participate in the online atheist discussion that I've been watching for what feels like forever.

Dive on in. The water is warm!
Welcome to the community!
I hope you don't mind if I piggyback on your intro thread; I just joined today in a very similar situation as yours. My overrun schedule of school and work also precludes any involvement in local atheist groups. I can completely identify with your frustration at a lack of passionate debate partners in daily life. (The lunchroom conversation at my office rarely ventures from such inane topics as sales at the mall, new milkshake flavors at Sonic, and Glenn Beck's latest moronic sermon. I usually eat at my desk.)

I'm diving in with you! :)
don't mind at all!

welcome and i'm glad we both found this place!
Thanks! :) I'm so glad to have found this place, too.
Danielle, Shine, welcome to the site!
Yes, yes! What my evil twin Dave says!
Reggie, you are the evil twin.

Or maybe we're both evil triplets.
Or we are like monopoles with no "good" twin/triplet/what have you!
I'd like to welcome you both to the site as well. I hope you enjoy this site as much as I.
thanks! i've certainly been enjoying it thus far :)
Thanks for the welcome wishes!
