Proud to identify as an Atheist.

Many here know that I'm a huge fan of the PossumMomma. I've even quoted her before.

Now, P-momma has Lupus. The kind where going into a room with windows on a sunny day causes her pain. This means she cannot even go into her children's rooms to help them with their homework or watch them play.

Never let it be said that "Organizing atheists is like herding cats." Berlzebub has started a donation drive to buy UV film from 3M for the P-family. You can read about it here.

Now, this post isn't about drumming up donations for P-momma, but rather this post is about how awesome the Atheist community really is, and I for one am PROUD that we have created our own community, thanks to the wonders of technology. And I am very proud to identify with this awesome group of people.

You mean "evil atheists" do good things too? ; )

I will try to chip in.

Good post.

Having been an atheist myself for many years, the main thing I don't understand about them is this: Why do they all seem so angry? When I was an atheist, I wasn't angry at people who believed differently. I hope you don't think I'm being contentious here, it's just a thing I've wondered about for a long time. Maybe this will give you material for a blog entry?
