I am the single irreligious person in a large family of militant Catholics. I attend a Catholic secondary school where the odds against me are a bit less, being one of three freethinkers in the school, where the rest are some form of Christianity.
I live in the Bible Belt unfortunately, but the number of atheists are growing in the area (thank god!).
I have no idea what I want to do with my life at this point. I love philosophy, music (I'm a percussionist), reading, writing, and film. Whatever I major in, I plan on getting a doctorate and teaching either at the high school or university level (depending on what field I'm in). Hopefully writing novels as well. Or if I'm really lucky, I'll have a few finished during college...
Why are you here?
To meet other atheists, in particular local atheists, to discuss religious and ethical topics at length, to add to the number of "out of the closet" atheists, and to attempt to destroy negative connotations attributed to atheism through raising awareness.
