Before I found science forums I very rarely ever met anybody that claimed to be an atheist. So when do atheist ever make the opportunity to talk about not believing in God? My bet is mostly at parties and get togethers where someone else is talking about God. When you find yourself in the presence of a God conversation, do you declare yourself to be an atheist and talk about your reasons for not believing or do you just listen or participate without declaring yourself? When the neighborhood religions come knocking at your door. Do you say your not interested and close the door? Or rub your hands together thinking this is going to be fun? As the title implies, do you feel that the people who admit to being atheist are just the tip of an iceberg? And that most atheist stay out of the picture to avoid conflict and family strife?
