I believe there are several losely organized Atheist groups, but I belong to none. I leave us all with quotes to remember.
"We must question the story logic of having an all-knowing all-powerful God, who creates faulty Humans, and then blames them for his own mistakes."
"To assert that the earth revolves around the sun is as erroneous as to claim that Jesus was not born of a virgin."
"Since our inner experiences consist of reproductions, and combinations of sensory impressions, the concept of a soul without a body seem to me to be empty and devoid of meaning."
"A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeeded be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death."
"If the Bible is mistaken in telling us where we came from, how can we trust it to tell us where we're going?"
And of course my favorite:
"I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours."
