So you are probably wondering what the hell is an Atheist Cowboy.  Well let me try to explain.  I grew up loving the country.  I love country music, riding horses, rodeos, and just generally the old west.  I still love these things.  I find them entertaining and fun. What people might not understand is how hard it is to love these types of things and be an atheist.  The christians are like a locust at such events.  Every type of these events is always started with prayers for safety of the participants.  There are always cowboy churches.  You have probably seen the decals on trucks with the little girl and her horse kneeling before a cross.  Must people stereotype anyone involved with rodeo or the country as Christian Rednecks, rightly so in most cases.  Maybe I'm the only one that does not follow this stereotype.  I sure haven't found anyone else, yet.  I ask myself constantly if that lifestyle is compatible with mine.  I always wonder how many "real" cowboys in the old west were actually 'christians'.  Anyway, that is my introduction to this community.  I know I am not alone in my atheism but it would be nice to know if I'm the only one as described above.
