I’ve been an atheist my whole life, grew up in a non-religious family. I was a “tourist” at a Christian fundementalist group for a while in university, as both a cathartic and social outlet (think Edward Norton in “Fight Club” going to the recovery meetings).
I recently read Richard Dawkins’ “God Delusion” and it’s really motivated me to be more expressive in public about my beliefs. Like many people I’ve become increasingly angry at the spread of anti-intellectual pro-religious influence on governments around the world.
So if anyone in Vancouver knows of any secularism and/or CFI-related meet ups or volunteer opportunities please let me know!
