Atheist and proud of it?

October 14, 2007

If you are, then please consider helping out RAFT of the University of Illinois, Chicago with their project which gives atheists and freethinkers a place to reassert our non-theism or to proclaim it for the first time.

One might wonder how putting your name on a list may help. After a little consideration, I came to the conclusion that most of the communities that a person like myself has are online, where there is an overabundance of secrecy of real-life identity. Right off the bat, when I’m in a group that is full of pseudonyms, the community feels a bit closed-off.  If this list gets big enough, then it can create a community of real names, and that seems much better to me than a community of *atheist* pseudonyms.

So, if you’re an atheist and in a place to say it, sign the list. I’ll be checking up on it now and again!
