Online atheist forums

The Atheist Experience gets a lot of email. Way more email than we can possibly respond to. In some cases, one person will write to us many times, seeing us as a sort of atheist pen pal. Although I enjoy filling that role sometimes, most of the time we’re stretched too thin to be a personal atheist mentor. In those cases, we often advise people to find a message board or a Facebook group to join instead. There are lots of people willing to talk there.

While this is by no means an exhaustive list, it is a good way to get started if you’re not able to meet atheist friends in person, and you’d like some online contact.
