I too read the article by Goodstein in the NYT this morning and chose to join this group. I am a member of the Secular Humanist group in N.W. Phoenix and was delighted to see that there are even more of us. I attended a conference in Virginia in 2007 of the American Athiests where I was fortunate enough to meet up with Sam Harris, Dawson, Dennett, Hitchens and many others.

I realize that much of our government legislation comes from the religious right that divides many Americans into minorities removing many of our individual choices. I moved to Arizona 7 years ago and found myself in the winter wonderland of the bible belt.

I have been an Atheist for many years and was thrilled to learn that we are not decreasing in numbers but seeing our numbers increasing all the time.

I read the article today because it was brought up on the View! I have to say that I am extremely encouraged by the article and this has made me very proud to announce I am an Atheist! I believe we all need to feel welcomed and appreciated and I think this article is a stepping stone to allowing others to understand our point of view. We are in fact good people doing good things for others and our communities.

I choose to not be separated by partisan beliefs but be united in the fact that we are all humans here searching for common goals : love, laughter, happiness, and peace. Why separate ourselves in divisive ways let us come together as One to make this world a better place for all of us!

Thank you for getting the word out! Let's change the perception people have of the word Atheist.

It's wonderful! I live in Charleston and nearly crashed my car when I saw the billboard one day -- and now to see it in the NYT, and Dr Kasman interviewed - wow! I promise I don't use so many exclamation points in real life. It's just so exciting to get that feeling that I am not alone all over again!

Keep up the good work...our $36 is on the way!
