...in other words, Sam seems to be saying, many who don't believe in god see atheist gatherings as something resembling Star Trek conventions LOL! Oh dear, it wasn't that bad was it?!

I agree with his points though - in any case most people just want to get on with their lives but they want competent, honest, transparent, fair and rational government. Atheism is actually a very personal thing as well - for those who haven't thought about it, I can imagine it's a bit unpallatable. Keeping god out of the White House is one thing, but facing up to the fact we don't survive our death is another...some people find it a relief, others find it devastating!
