Still an atheist

This Thursday on the United States' National Day of Prayer, nontheists will have a National Day of Reason and recently Washington D.C. saw the Rally of Reason. Coming out as an atheist is becoming one of the bravest moves an American can make, especially if she's a minister. Apparently the U.S. is the most religious Western country in the world, which probably puts me on the cutting edge, being Mexican and all.

But you won't hear me argue against the existence of a spiritual being because I believe that faith can be extremely useful. It just doesn't work for me.

Suspect thats Israel, unless not considered western. And also the likes of Spain, Greece, Italy and Ireland would put up a good case.

Think the US varies depending which state/city you are in.

Thank you, Mick. I'm not sure what that statement meant, so I probably shouldn't have used it. Anyway, we ARE a lot of Bible-thumper over here.
