We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
There are 'atheist' and there are those who don't believe in god. Most 'atheist' are like the joke "how do you tell if someone is a vegetarian; wait ten minutes and they will tell you". Most atheists are activists for their beliefs; in fact they eagerly try to proselytize you to their beliefs. To them ateism IS their religion. Whereas someone who doesn't believe in god doesn't really care what others believe in and usually avoids discussing it.
