"No because freethinkers are like cats. You can spend all your time trying to organize them, but in the end, they're going to do what they want."

"There will always be a plurality of sites dedicated to a subject like this,a "one site to rule them all"   project is naive hybris"

"No websites like this is a supplement, the real organisation takes place in organisations such as Atheist Alliance International and American  Atheists and their affiliates. Online forums are valueable but cannot replace IRL activism"

"I accidentally found the Think Atheist website. The website allowed me to express my views and engaged my interest.  So, I've enjoyed learning from others while stretching my mind."

"Well maybe not "one" for the entire planet...! But of these sites of "international" interest I think fewer is more efficient."

"So do you think it would be better to have one central base for atheists rather than a plurality of websites?"

"Absolutely. I confess to preferring the other similar website which has more people. I think the multiplication of websites consisting of small atheist websites who tend to already agree with each other is pointless."

"Converts: I am always a little skeptical about people who've recently changed their minds, IMO change once, change again. So if someone's converted from religion 20-30-40 years ago, then I trust and value their atheist stance. I've…"

"Are people attracted by the large number of member on here? Or would you not consider an atheist website with a smaller member group?"

About Me:
I'm a 21-year-old undergraduate Journalism student at Cardiff University, planning to do my journalism training in the next year or two. I'm a bit of a news junkie, and hopeless with popular music because all I listen to is Radio 4. Although I'm a bit of a current affairs queen, I'm not very serious or boring.. I have a very active social life, I like getting drunk and partying with my friends, and surfing and snowboarding are my sports of choice. I'm also described as a 'foodie' by my friends; I love eating out, but I'm very fussy with where I eat, and I'm not easily impressed by a menu. I eat at Michelin Star restaurants as often as I can - the dream is to one day be a restaurant critic, and hopefully my career as a journalist will open some doors.

Why are you here?
I am here to administer research as part of my undergraduate degree into how atheists benefit and use social media. I am doing a case study of Think Atheist, and I would very much appreciate it if you took this survey regarding the Think Atheist forums, as well as including more general questions about how you use the internet. http://kwiksurveys.com?s=LLIIIL_93dd86f3
I will also be conducting interviews and a bulletin board discussion - if you would like to know more, just send me a personal message.
After my degree I hope to become more of an active member on Think Atheist, but to maintain researcher independence I have to take a backfoot.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
My family are 'Christians' but are only religious in as much as I was christened and my parents were married in church. I always sort of believed as we were made to pray in school every day, my parents would talk of relatives or dead family pets being in heaven etc.
My best friend, when I started secondary school (high school), was a hardcore Christian with a very church-orientated family - one of those 'cool' 'hip' churches. I went along to the Youth club.. and basically my best friend, her family and youth workers started to groom me into becoming a 'proper' Christian. I was having a hard time at school, so was easily led at first, but luckily I have a head on my shoulders. I started to worry about God watching me in the shower, watching me if I did anything wrong. If I swore my best friend would say 'God doesn't like it when you do that', as a form of blackmail... until one day I flipped. And told her to f*** off and here I am!!
