Surprise! Colorado Springs NOT in the Bible Belt.

http://letreasonreign.wordpress.com/2013/07/27/most-and-least-religious-places/

Unlike what I usually do when I crosspost from my blog (where I simply paste the text in), I'll provide a TL;DR here because I want to highlight the thing I found really surprising.

In a Gallup Poll where they classified people into "very", "moderately" and "non" religious, and did this…

Open Letter to Christians #3: Freedom From Religion? Yes.

Posted on February 10, 2013 at 11:52pm 0 Comments

Crosspost from here:

Dear Christian,

Well, actually it is both; you cannot…

Really? I am in a wonderful local atheist group with hundreds of members, but it still seems like an insanely religious place.

Thanks for the friend request! Definitely accepted! :-) Can't wait to talk with you more on your philosophical views of religion... although logically there is really very little to go over other than arguments against and reasons why... anyway, you get my drift I think :-)
