    Me Too !!

    I just found out that this group existed. Neat! I have always been secular, and for many years have been a humanist, but I did not know that there was an actual term that generalizes my beliefs. Actually, the first time I heard the term was when I took this neat online religion...

    Foxhole

    Because I'm not a theist, my wife's family loves to use the line about there being no atheists in foxholes. I argued the point halfheartedly, wondering if it were possible that I'd change my tune if I knew my doom was nigh (nothing good ever seems to be nigh). I had a 'fall...

    I Am

    I didn't really know what one is, until I read Jerry Falwell's book on the subject. He was quite upset at us, we were ruining the country. By the time I finished his book, I was proudly proclaming myself a Secular Humanist.
