The photo displayed is of Harlem soapbox orator, agitator, popular educator, & atheist Hubert Henry Harrison.

Documentation of black atheism, freethought, & humanism on the web can be found in my atheist web guide.

See also my working bibliography.

I also have a general interest blog, Reason & Society.

Some of you may also be interested in some of my other projects, e.g. The Autodidact Project, my Studies in a Dying Culture (blog), and my Emergence blog. You can also listen to my podcasts: my Internet radio show is called "Studies in a Dying Culture," hosted by Think Twice Radio.

You wouldn't believe some of the hot atheist black babes I've met in DC . . . oops, is it PC to say this? More importantly, it's a development that would have been hard to imagine a generation ago, perhaps even a decade ago.

I tell ya, going back to read these posts every now and then just gives me goosebumps. Good to see people waking up and especially encouraging is the amount of Black women---beautiful Black women mind ya---that are looking for ways to help other sisters out the cult.

We freethinkers will try to liberate as many as we can, but guys like this will religiously imprison as much as he can.

I'm an open and non-apologetic non-believer and I don't ever let them pimp the Jesus-juice in my zone :)

I had to become almost militant in my approach b/c I got tired of Christians oversteppng their bounds---religious emails, thank-ya-Jezaaahhs, saying grace over my food I just bought...LOL. I really think religion has taken hold of this country b/c we allowed this shit to go too far.

We need to start speaking up, asking them to take that nonsense elsewhere when we hear it, admonish our brothers and sisters (all colors and creed) to do the same. Eventually we'll wake up the masses.

I am not angry though just disappointed. In order not to be hypocrites we can only use intellect to fight. I dont think the slaves would have been freed if they were not completely religiousize or else a holy war would have occured against christianity. In modern times our best weapon is attention like I indicated in a discussion I posted. Somehow we got to get the message out. A rebel has to enter the main stream media spotlight. I cant see why any hasnt popped up. Not one sports star, actor, anchor or singer. It goes to show blacks have to find other means to obtain fame. As traditional mediums require conformism.

The sad thing is most Blacks don't realize that, it has been the CHURCH that has oppressed them more, and even today it is the case.. In terms of govt oppression there is much we can do to combat that but this church for some reason preaches to turn the other cheek... That has got to stop, rebel, become angry, ACT!

Amen (LOL)

Christians are amongst the biggest hypocrites of all time.. All it takes, is for a African American to look at his status in the world to realize that this notion of a God is surely nothing more than a JOKE!
