Being an Atheist can be lonely, seems other Atheist can be hard to find I think most of them hide :>
A life lived as an Atheist is not easy believers in gods can be very cold and hard hearted even to the extreme of wanting to kill you.

Yes it can. But that is why we have communities like this one and others so our movement can grow and we can have support.

I feel you, I live in the bible belt and do not know any atheist other than my wife.

I hope that one day America and ofcourse the rest of the world will be as secularized and acceptive as Scandinavia.

I'm from Sweden so I have been spared the "atheist-mistrust" that exist in the more religious nations. Here parents start to worry when kids come home wearing a cross or starts dating that wellcombed freaky christian guy. 

So I will not say that I know how life is for atheists in America. But the things I hear makes me sad. Stay strong so that more Atheists dare to emerge :)
