What are we doing?

For several months now, I’ve been watching the turmoil within the atheist/skeptic community with concern that’s graduating rapidly into alarm.  I firmly believe that pursing social justice and supporting feminism, within or outside the atheist community, is important, worthy and necessary.  Racists, harassers, sexists, and sexual predators cannot be allowed to dominate and control our [Read More...]

See here for details: Naval Academy Refuses Use of Chapel [Read More...]

Atheism in the Marines As a Marine who is also an atheist this matter is very concerning to me. After publishing about the Marines classifying atheism as a “risky behavior” a Marine from H&S Battalion in Quantico reached out to me with this: I saw your blog entry about H&S Battalion in Quantico.  That specific [Read More...]

Atheist Monument Unveiled Today Shown Disrespect by Eric Hovind

The day started off with rain, not unlike The Reason Rally, but that did not stop American Atheists from unveiling the first monument at Bradford County Courthouse square in Starke, FL from being erected on government property. The Good News David Silverman, President of American Atheists, officiated the dedication ceremony. Over 250 atheists were reported to be [Read More...]
