Welcome Anthony! Have fun!

So are you a Government scientist like me?

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Hello People!
I'm 37, and have been an unbeliever for about 17 of those years. I didn't become the outspoken Atheist that I am now until about 7 years ago. Now, I am loud and proud.
I am married to a fellow atheist, and have a 11-year old son. I am a Horticulturalist, so my son was raised to appreciate nature and everything in it. He also loves all things science and space related. Damn good kid.
Ironically, I work for a landscape company that is owned by a very outspoken Christian. Plus, a good deal of the people who work here are also big fans of Jesus. Fortunately, he works out of a different office, so we don't chat that often. I'm pretty sure he doesn't know I'm an Atheist. The people around me do, though. One is a hardcore, home-schooling, Jesus camp loving, fellow. I make an effort to avoid religious conversation, but every now and then I just can't help myself. He's even "shared"(aka put on my desk when I'm not there) with me literature about Jesus. Especially around Easter and Christmas.
My family was raised Catholic, and most still stubbornly cling to it. They know I'm an Atheist, and never bother me about it. My father, who died in a car accident a year ago, was the only one who really held it against me.
Anyway, I've been meaning to sign up here for a long time, and Seths post about it forced my hand. Hopefully, I can contribute and have some fun.

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Hello everyone, I'm a 20yr old male in college. From PA. Grew up in the traditional Roman Catholic household and just about 3yrs ago lost my faith for science and reason. Best choice I ever made. Currently in school for Political Science to hopefully bring this country back to reason. I love the works of Dawkins and Harris.
