"It’s About Fucking Time"

Seth McFarlane replies “It’s about fucking time.” to Bill Maher’s question about the popularity of atheism in the past couple of years. And the audience cheers like mad. Maher tries to says that his movie is the reason, but I don’t think so. It’s the internet that is largely responsible. I remember reading discussions about atheism on the early internet in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s on alt.atheism and alt.atheism.moderated.

Then Internet Infidels and IIDB (now FRDB) started up in the mid-1990’s and I was happy posting and meeting other atheists online. Now it seems atheist blogs are popular and the number seems to be expanding every day. Now, there are more dynamic sites like Atheist Nexus and Atheist Nation. Also people are meeting in real life and using Atheist Meetups. Local groups are becoming more common and I participate in most of these types of social interactions.
