Hello all, I am new to this site.  Loving it to the fullest extent.  Atheists are becoming more accepted in the world, but are still outcasts in many parts of it.  I am from the south, where most people are Christian, and claim to be devout.  The only part of their being devout consists of standing up for their religion, by putting down on any others than think differently.  I am hesitant to talk about myself being Atheist as a first subject in a conversation being the response I am likely to receive.  It's either you are Christian or a complete imbecile in the eyes of the majority of the population in the area.  I am in currently in college and enjoying the extended level of open-minded peers I meet.

 

Just posting to get involved, any responses are welcome and appreciated. :)

I live in Boulder, Colorado.  The town is packed with Ph.D's (mostly in atmospheric and biochemical sciences) and software engineers.  Atheism is not a problem in this community.  So: there are places out there where atheism is accepted as a valid viewpoint.
Welcome mate, hope to see you in the discussions soon!
