About SecSpec

Welcome to The Secular Spectrum, the group blog for the Nonreligious Channel at Patheos.

As the nonreligious community continues its explosive growth, the diversity that has always been below the surface is making itself known—diversity not only in gender and ethnicity, but in tone and approach. We don’t believe in gods, but beyond that common thread is every kind of human variable. Some nonbelievers want to get as far as possible from anything that reminds them of religion, while others are glancing back to find gems in the ashes of the temple. They are present in every socioeconomic class and every corner of the world. Some are solitary intellectuals, others love to gather in emotional community. This blog brings them all together in posts both newborn and born again.

Thanks for being here!
