Why do you always have to try to ruin every topic that someone starts, Wounded? Or Steve Jones, or Possum Butt, or Idiotic Fool, or Rooster Penis, or whatever your alias is at the moment. No one thinks you're smart, or funny, or clever. Nobody gives a damn about you so why don't you do everyone a favor and go get arrested and thrown in jail or something, you worthless P.O.S. How do I know what you should get arrested for? You can show your face and get arrested for indecent exposure for all I care, you worthless slime.

Is there a group which meets or whatever? Or is it "Lucky if you can find others of like mind."

I'm not looking for smartasses, only those truly interested in progressive &/or humanist &/or skeptic &/or just really thoughtful people. 14 year olds need not apply--unless they meet the aforementioned criteria.

Are you new in town? I'm a progessive Atheist. There is a Texarkana Freethought Group on Facebook. But, it has like 6 members and never really meets or does anything.

You are right,Sharon. Progressives are a endangered species. Around here and everywhere else. Progressives have been around for a long time. They were called liberals and socialist, until everyone found out what it was about, and liberal became a dirty word. Best of luck to ya. GW.

Not on Facebook but I wish there was a chatroom option on Topix that people who didn't want to argue and fight with each other could go and just talk. You know, without getting ambushed and harassed by fools like Steve Jones. He's a useless waste of skin.

We've lived here since December. Both my husband and myself are atheists. He's more of a libertarian, while I'm a Progressive. Been needing to find a sense of community which is hard for us atheists to find, much less as a Progressive. Why doesn't the TX Freethought group meet?

Cool. I lean Libertarian on some issues, but am mostly Progressive. Yeah, in this area, unfortunately, chances are the only Atheists you will come into contact with will be on the internet. I have never met another Atheist here in person besides my husband (he's a progressive too). The Freethought group just doesn't get much interest. A small handful of people joined the Facebook page, but there is not really any drive to have activities. The creator of the group and I tryed to have a get together about a year ago, but only three people showed any interest. Three people, including he and I.

I knew some folks here in town who were/are members of the Texarkana free thinkers, and I must say that they did not have an intelligent thought in their heads. It was obvious that they had become atheist because they met someone else who was one and were desperate to identify with some group. Wow, what a free thinking bunch!

It's people like you that discourage any thinking people from coming anywhere near this place. Why can't people of similar interests have a conversation without being hassled by backwards bigots? Mind your own business. Conservative Christians dominate this town and this forum. Can't we have one single thread to ourselves? One place where we aren't told that we don't belong here because we don't share your ideas? You're pathetic.

I don't think you are talking about the same group I am. The Freethought group of Texarkana barely has any Atheists in it at all. Most are Deists or "Agnostics"(which isn't actually a position). And the idea that someone would become an Atheist to identify with a community is absurd. Becoming an Atheist alienates you from almost every community. Especially here. Where the total number of Atheists in this town willing to form a community is in the single digits.

Just curious, wouldn't it make more sense to start a group that has a common belief in something instead of a group dedicated only to disbelief in one particular thing? Really not trying to start anything, I just can't fathom where the discussion would go.
