So I just got back from the Östergötland regional meeting of the Secular Humanist organization. It was a very rewarding experience... it was very enlightening, learning about the philosophy- I think I finally found a philosophy with which I identify.

We were about forty or so people meeting up, and the president of the association, Christer Sturmark, (who is a minor celebrity) held a very interesting lecture on humanism, religion and society. I've never felt prouder to be an atheist; being among likeminded, intellectual people was plain uplifting. I am joining, without a doubt. :D

...and in other news, while the people here on DA do not seem to consider me too much of a strident, aggessive atheist, my atheist family does. Oy vey, the lack of self awareness that an Aspie must endure...

Would you believe my dad is an atheist, and he think's I'm a fundamentalist atheist?

Probably the only part of his mind I seriously hate...

I would believe that, yes.

Tone it down, and don't generalize religion. That should do the trick.

I've been getting better at that - he just says I'm a 'fundamentalist' because I harp on about religion quite a bit.

You should ask him what he even means by "fundamentalist". Atheism doesn't have fundamentals to begin with.

It's because I apparently "will never change my stance on the existence of God", which is complete bullshit.

Clarify that, as an agnostic, you allow for the possibility of god to exist, however unlikely it is.
