I am well versed on the arguments for both sides about the existence of God and am especially aware of the philosophical ramifications and psychological reactions to atheism. Also, if you have a question about atheism as that pertains to Science or Skepticism, I may be an especially good pick. However my knowledge of non-Judeo-Christian religions and Biblical archaeology is generally limited to knowledge about directions to more informative resources.
I've been an atheist for 12 years now, open about it for 7 years after being raised in a Roman Catholic family. In that time I have held many different philosophical perspective on the subject and had different emotional and psychological reactions to atheism. I have absorbed many internet articles, video debates, atheist publications, and secular podcasts in my process of understanding and supporting the atheist movement. I routinely hold conversations on the subject.
One article in If Journal, an interfaith publication.
I have a BS in Physics and Mathematics from the College of William & Mary I am pursuing my Ph.D in Physics at Indiana University at Bloomington. I have very little formal training in philosophy or sociology.
I was president of the William & Mary Students for Science & Secularism before graduating.
Right now, the public perception of atheists has been defined by people who are not atheists. That is only currently beginning to change and I hope everyone realizes that atheism can be an uplifting way of looking at the universe.
The song "God Bless America" was written by Irving Berlin who was actually a nonbeliever.
