Hello! I am writing in hope that some of you in this group might be interested in contributing to the anthology I'm working on. I would very much like to include articles by atheists living in Arab countries. I know some people have to keep a low profile, and for that reason am okay with submissions under pseudonyms (fake names). Please have a look at the details below and consider contributing!
I am working to compile for publication a book of essays/articles about the experiences of atheists around the world.
I am from the United States, where religion is usually a personal matter and one’s beliefs or non-beliefs do not necessarily affect their public lives. I live in the middle-east, where a person’s religion is very public, even printed their national identity card, and people of different religions have different legal systems. It is a much different experience being atheist in the USA and being an atheist in the middle-east.
I am very interested to hear about the experience of atheists in different cultures and societies around the world. Our beliefs are similar, but the way they affect our lives is very different.
For this reason, I am seeking contributions of articles from atheists and non-believers around the world. I am especially interested to hear from atheists in non-western countries, countries which espouse a state religion, and countries where the majority religion is non-theistic or polytheistic. I am also interested to hear the experiences of atheists who are members of a minority community.
No, there's no deadline. I began this project last spring, with the naive hope that I'd collect a sufficient number of articles within a few months. To date, however, I have only received a handful, so the project continues...
