I Told

I told the new kid at work that I am an atheist. She was startled. She had never met an atheist (as far as she knows). Then she told me her cousin just met an atheist recently as well.
I did not tell her the guy (still in closet) in the next cube is also an atheist. We are more numerous than most people know.

When in doubt, C4. Jamie Hyneman

Not too numerous. At least not in the States. Well, I guess that depends on what one means by numerous. Straight up atheists are about 5% (if you lump in self identified agnostics), non-religious is about 10%... which means about 1 in 20 people a person meets will be an atheist and 1 in 10 will be secular. Still a minority, but probably more common than most people think.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

So tell me about JJ.
I noticed that his reply was removed.
He did not sound very pleasant.

He's the current forum trolling idiot, only out to stir shit, poke the wasp's nest and get on most people's tits. Nothing gets removed - simply moved into the troll dump to avoid having to see his nonsense spread across multiple threads. Like Catholic priests, he preys on newcomers to the fold hoping to get a nibble. Unfortunately, some folk haven't grasped the concept of ignoring this type of fucker - but it's little trouble to sweep up their shit from time to time.

Stop the Holy See men!

You were correct. I find him very offensive and will ignore him. Though I will admit some trolls can be amusing if they stay polite.
