membership count
Just a curiosity question, I was wondering about the huge increase in members lately and wondered if the membership increases the closer we get to Christmas?

Is there a peak month/week historically that members arrive at TTA?

Hmmm, good question.

According to a certain member, the forum was dying and it was directly related to having a derpy theist as an admin.

All kidding aside, I talked with the guys from AF, and they confirmed what I thought as well. They're getting an increase in members and it happens around the holidays. It seems to be a common trend. People are off for the holidays... looking to pass the time... Christians get reminded about church and then want to try and "save" people via Internet forums.

You see the same type of increase during the summer months as well.

I was just thinking that starting around Halloween the talking about heaven/hell, god/atheist starts and by the time Christmas rolls around anyone who was a fence sitter (or in the closet, or just fed up) has had heard enough preaching they start looking around for places like this.

I wonder if there's any correlation to loss of faith and depression at christmas? All good questions, Bows.

I don't know if it's mostly due to Christians coming to proselytize. Most of the people I've seen coming are here as non-believers, with a few theists thrown in.

Tis' the season for the reason! Cool

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
