"No, you're definitely not alone in this situation. I am currently in my second year of college and struggle greatly to find atheist friends. We are rare, we are a growing group though. Keep your head high and you'll find friends."

"I have absolutely NO Atheist friends :( My girlfriend doesn't believe in God and is technically an Atheist, but she didn't even grow up around God or religion so she doesn't have the same passion as me."

Atheist Friends?

Recently, it's come to my attention that I have no real-life atheist friends.  I know one or two people who are friends of mine who also happen to not believe in god, but I don't really know anyone who I can talk about ideas about philosophy involving religion.  Am I the only one in this community like that?  Is it just because I'm a teenager and others just haven't really started to question things?

Iain Phillips commented on Jacob w's blog post 'Why is it hard to grasp christianity for some people?'
"Guys, something tells me that Jacob has given up on our souls.  Maybe he'll put us in our prayers, ask his god to convert us and show us the light.  Other than that, I think we might be done here."
