Hello there,

I'm your standard issue polite, liberal Kansas atheist. I'm a doting dad of two. I spend my free time making music and I'm an above average cook. You know, just like everyone else.

I'm pretty darn great at getting along with people I disagree with because I disagree with pert near everyone in every town I lived in but it would be nice to meet more people like me.

Oh, and Hurts Donut has the best donuts I have had in my life... and I have sampled more than my share.

Go to 1984. All you can play arcade games for a stupid low entry fee. It's been like 4 years since I was last there but my son and I got in for like $12.
How many of you find it difficult to contain "displeasure" around people who are overwhelmingly religious?
MatRA comments:
I live in Kansas. If I couldn't politely navigate overwhelmingly religious people I would lose my mind. I never hide what I believe when asked.
Do you believe it's unethical to eat meat?
MatRA comments:
I don't. I wish we treated livestock better. That's certainly a thing to fight for and strive towards but I don't think it's a reasonable goal for humans to get to a 100% plant diet.
Who Has Daddy Issues?
MatRA comments:
My dad wasn't awesome while I was growing up. He was entirely too harsh on me because he was worried I wouldn't make much of myself (and I gave him plenty of reason to worry) but he supported every weird hobby I wanted to try and flew to my aid whenever I needed him. Our relationship got a lot better when I got out of college and he could tell I was going to be ok. I also stopped resenting the way he treated me when I realized how young he was at the time. Of course he was a bad parent. He was still a kid himself. We're still not all that close because he's a humorless conservative but I love him. I've never talked to him about being an atheist. He probably couldn't get his head around that at all.
How religious were you before you became atheist?
MatRA comments:
I grew up more culturally religious than practicing religious. My parents and friends were all Christian but none of us actually went to church. When I went away to college I started paying attention to science and history classes in a way I hadn't before and met people that were PRACTICING religious. I quickly decided that the two things were incompatible.
What popular song will you never get sick of? For me, it's any song by Wham! (That's right, I said it.)
MatRA comments:
I could listen to Bohemian Rhapsody on a loop for the rest of my life.
Do you like being outside?
MatRA comments:
It's the best.... except it gets so hot here and the humidity is brutal. I can tough it out if I have a change of clothes ready.
How do you respond to "Have a blessed day"?
MatRA comments:
On the outside: "thanks, you have a good day." On the inside: "uuuugggggggggghhhhhh."

There's a thousand great Kurt Vonnegut quotes but this is my favorite:
