New here.
Found this place due a coincidental cross refernce. Still a somewhat new Atheist. Grew up in a fairly religious conversative place. My favorite Atheist would have to be Adam Savage. More exposition to follow Smile

Oh, and Spooky is one of my cats:

Heya, good to see you here!

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.

Welcome.

You can lead a theist to reason, but, you cannot make him think.

RE: New here.
"Atheist" is not a club, moral code, political party or loyalty oath. It merely means "off" on god claims.

Since you say you are new, my advice is to educate yourself. Lots of reading, no, not all at once.

I would recommend the following books

The God Delusion, Richard Dawkins
The New Atheism, Victor Stenger
God The Failed Hypothesis, Victor Stenger
Letter To A Christian Nation, Sam Harris
The End of Faith, Sam Harris
God Is Not Great, Christopher Hitchens
Infidel, Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Don't hold the "atheist" position to be a badass, or lawbraker. There is only one reason to reject any god claim, lack of evidence.

Welcome, although with that cat I'd have guessed you were a witch. Big Grin

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Own a copy of The God Delusion. Will have to work on the others.

Heh, Badass? Being "badass" is pretty low on my list.
