Do people take "Here for community" seriously? Do people even look in profiles to see what the ...

I think it is how this site is advertised. It said that it was a "dating" site, and when I got here it seemed that is a bit inaccurate. :) This looks more like a forum, which is fine, and if forum members start dating, that's bonus, right.
How comfortable are you with the word "Atheist" ?
AtheistReader comments on Aug 30, 2018:
Logically, you may be right. But to paraphrase a quote from Star Trek, "whoever accused of the humanity of being logical?" :) I think historically that the majority of humanity has held religious beliefs of some sort, and continues to do so. So, I am perfectly happy with separating myself from the majority with the label "atheist." One of my favorite theist writer is Reza Aslan, and I enjoy reading his books (and many would say that his books are not exactly "scholarly" and they are probably right, but still very entertaining), and he makes a point that the state of belief as opposed to the state of non-believing has been, and is, the norm. I agree that that has historically been the norm. I would of course argue that it shouldn't be. But the fact is that it is.
Should public nudity be legal?
AtheistReader comments on Aug 30, 2018:
Should a society legislate morality? I think that is a bigger question. If the answer is yes, then the question is what criteria and procedure should the society use in order to define "morality" and how to enforce it to what degree. Then it is a simply a matter of communal agreement. Atheists are not burdened with "religious" mores, but they do have "mores" stemming from other sources. Personally, I think it is legitimate for a society to legislate morality, if morality is defined as "preventing individuals from causing unnecessary harm to others." In that sense, yes, I absolutely think that being nude in public should be legal.
