So many Atheists

Most surprising about the conference I'm at: so many people who are outspoken atheists here.

I guess I was expecting it to be a quietly-known subject. Now, thinking about it, having been here for a bit, I realize that the whole God thing is the biggest societal deliusion, and has the deepest impact on how people live their lives--even choose their politics and politicians--left. All the others, from cryptozoology to astrology to ufology, are pretty much the irrelevant fringe.

's "Letting Go of God" performance last night was brilliant.
