Wife busted our cover at school
So those of you that know me a little, know that my wife and I both going to Nursing school together, in Louisiana.

The other day on our smoke break some of the gals that aren't doing so well mentioned an Idea. She said, "I think we should all group up and have a big ole prayer. But we can't do that 'cause we might offend someone."

Well they all got to questioning people in what they believe. The asked my wife and she went ahead and told them she was an Atheist. Of course I was asked directly after and I had no choice to tell them I am an Atheist as well. Not that I was scared, I just don't want any unneeded stress with all the other study stress. Well it went over fairly ok. There is another guy in the class that told me that he is the same and one of the girl's boyfriend is an atheist, she actually said something positive about us lol.

After class, we got in our truck and I asked my wife, "Why did you tell them?", She said, "You told me never lie about it!" I guess I couldn't argue with that lmao! Just so you know, the ones that aren't begging for prayers and are fairly nonreligious are actually the top students, including my wife and I. I kind of find it entertaining, because they can't understand why I'm doing so well and I tell them when they ask, "Because I follow evolution!"

Keeping realism alive, one honest offensive comment at a time!

Does it kind of feel good to be out?
Like a weight off?

Now that you're out of the closet it must be a relief to know that you can have sex with other atheists without having to hide it anymore.

RE: Wife busted our cover at school
yea, im not too worried about letting people know i am atheist that are college age and actually go for higher learning, they tend to start thinking for themselves and even if they are still christian find many questions in it. The people I avoid talking to are older people who didn't grow up with the internet, and (hate to say this, and certainly not all of them) people in the military who are used to following everything they hear with no questions.

Most people don't know how to take it. One is automatically discounted as a heretic of sorts. I think it only freaks them out when my head starts rotating and my eyes glow red. Other than that - it's not all too bad.

Atheists can have sex? Oh, sure, now you tell me. Angry

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

My husband was career military and he was as atheist as they come. Military folk are pretty used to keeping much about themselves in the closet, so that's why you get that impression. Both his sons are military and they are atheist also.

My guess would be that there are more atheists in the military than in civilian life. Especially among those who have seen combat.

Nothing like an injection of some very nasty reality to make you think. Those type situations force you to make a conscious choice, and people go one way or another.

But, personality and personal opinions have no place in the working environment in the military, so they shut up about it.

I know what you mean though, I knew he was atheist before I knew he was retired military, and I about fell off my chair. In my experience now, military folk are either very religious, or completely atheist. Extreme situations effect extreme positions.

I didn't know until just recently. Morondog keeps going on and on about it so I assumed it's true. I'm just not sure what to do with this information. Confused
