Feedback and Notes

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

We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

"Thank you, and I do everyday. I talk about what happened to me in hopes to give people light in an otherwise dark place in their lives now because of religion. The hope that there is light. You're not alone."

This is part of my story.Ok, I’m going to tell you a story of how I survived a cult. Yes, the religious kind. Kind of like Waco Texas. Well, exactly like Waco…See More
