I can hear the echo from the silence....

It has gotten very lonely here on this little blog. :(

Reasons for this:

1.) Horus has been suuuper busy starting up another awesome group in Utah Valley. Similar to SHAFT up at Utah State and SHIFT at the University of Utah, there is now SHAAFT at Utah Valley University in - you guess it - Utah Valley! (I can't seem to find a website for SHAAFT - Horus, is there one? In the meantime, hopefully this will take you to the facebook community page.)

2.) j-dog is also super busy moving around and attacking his job and figuring out school. Oh, to be young and out and about figuring out life! So great. :) So fun.

3.) And where I was at least in Utah before, though not Utah Valley, I'm now no longer even in the state. So while I have so many great freethinker friends in Utah (and specifically Utah Valley), I can't mingle and mix with you like I could when I was a little closer. :'( And now I'm back in school, so I'm busy too. But not too busy to write occasionally.

However, past all of that, if there are any of you out there who do read this blog or are interested in reading more, would you also perhaps be interested in writing? I think it would be good for us to get some more atheist/freethinker/humanist/agnostic/whatever viewpoints out there. As long as you feel like you might have some common interests, send us an email and we'll see what we can do. (And if for some reason you don't hear from us....say we're neglecting checking our emails, leave a note in the comments.

Just remember, even if we're not on here writing, like-minded individuals abound in Utah Valley! They're out there! We're out there! You're not alone! Come and find us!


  1. I think we know why I haven't been writing.

  2. Echo

    I know finding this helped me today. I am just returning to school after 6 years. When I asked one teacher about skeptical or atheist groups he told me a bleak story of one student who debates with a teacher and presented it like that's all there was at UVU in this regard.

    But now I'm getting things set up to join SHAAFT on the campus and I noticed their Facebook has 65 members. So, thank you for speaking up about Utah Valley, many silent thinkers are just waiting to hear that they are not alone.

  3. How does one join SHAAFT at UVU? I've been searching, but it seems to be a difficult group to find.

  4. I just found you by Googling "Utah Valley Atheists." I am guessing most who frequent the blog are students(?)
    I'm older, but I live in Utah Valley and am an ex-Mormon atheist. Not having much interaction with other atheists and free-thinkers is my lot, as might be expected! I hope you don't mind if I hang around.
    John Howard is a fake name, BTW.
