One recent commenter brought up the fact the there are many more atheists than we know, and I couldn’t agree more.
It seems like the more visible and outspoken atheists are very well-educated — experts in science or maybe religion. I am none of that, and I have to wonder, how many other average moms in middle America feel like I do?
I often write because I feel alone and want to be connected to other atheists, but I also hope that my writing helps others not feel alone.
Sure, many atheists are into science and hard facts, but I think there’s a softer, more human side to atheism as well. I think it’s just as important to talk about our lives as atheists as it is to explain why we’re atheists in the first place.
So to other Midwest moms out there — I might not see you, but I hope you know you’re not alone.
