"Wow, that's rough Laura. I'm glad you were able to get out of that environment though. I know what it's like to be alienated from family because of religion.Have you been able to find a group of atheist friends in Tennessee? "

About Me:
We're an atheist podcast from Michigan. Facts Before Faith asks you to get the facts before putting your faith in ideas, institutions or individuals.
Why are you here?
Q. You mean here on Think Atheist, or here on Earth?

A. Looking to talk to local atheists. And I don't have an FTL drive to escape our solar system.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
Because I despise double standards. I finally realized that if I expected everyone else from other religions to question what they believed, I needed to do the same. My belief did not stand up to honest investigation, despite the fact that I fought tooth and nail to maintain my belief.

I'm guessing this is an avatar profile for www.factsbeforefaith.com.  

I listened to the most recent podcast.  Had a good chuckle and thought there was some very good points made.  I will enjoy more, I'm sure, in the near future.

I heard at the start of the podcast, mentioned others sites for the atheist community.  I was wondering if I could pick your mind on this.  as its very hard to find local atheist groups in many areas and so we rely so much on the internet. I see the large variety of atheist sites both as a good thing and bad.  Plenty of choice and covers all bases on one hand, but a lot of choke points in information sharing and group learning in the other.  That along with the time it takes to make and maintain multiple profiles for these sites.  

As I said I would like to ask you your opinion on this, not least on the topics of ideas for a more consolidated community, and best places to drop important information effecting the larger secular community as well as local community's.  

I would also like to point out to you, for the benefit of your profile here, you can drag your blog links, photos and videos up to above your most recent comments.  Something I think makes more sense even for the regular profile, but may help you particularly as an avatar profile for another site.

Good luck, I hope you enjoy Think Atheist, and I hope we can benefit from your site also.
