Due to Ning (our Web hosting company) being bought recently from the ashes of Mode Media we often experience 500 connection errors. Our apologies but these errors are out of our control. Hopefully, this will improve as the new company gains experience. Regards, AU

For atheists and our ilk, the SF Bay Area is a wonderful place to live.

For decades, until a few years ago, the initialism FUCK stood for the First Unitarian Church of Kensington.

Thanks for the welcome Paul,

I went to a Humanism, Skepticism, and Free Thought Conference in Portland OR in the mid '90's with five or six others from NE OR, SE WA, and Southern Idaho. We went one of the days. I attended four seminars. Michael Shermer said some interesting things about fire walking and ring finger length. Someone (the president?) from Washington American Atheists talked about producing shows on local area cable. There was quite a bit of talk about separation of church and state and legal issues regarding crosses in Utah for fallen policemen and elsewhere for fallen soldiers.

This was soon after Madalyn Murry O'Hair, and her family disappeared. 

That conference had several lectures simultaneously so I wasn't able to see everything I wanted. 


The originator of this group is from Michigan.


If I lived in San Diego I'd go to the:

I grew up in CA then moved to NE Oregon at the heart of the regional Mormon and Christian Identity movement area. It was sort of a mini bible belt. I hated it up there, but after moving back to the N. bay area am in a double culture shock. The produce here is horrible.

...oh, and one of our members is in MI. lol  We're a lonely bunch.

Yeah!  Now we have as many Atheists as the Texas group (didn't see that coming -- CA can't even compete with TX for the number of Atheists?!).
