This is a Great Rebuttal to the Idea That Atheists Are More Arrogant Than Believers

There's a common belief among many religious people (and Christian apologists, especially) that atheists are arrogant.Drew McCoy, a YouTuber at Genetically Modified Skeptic, does an excellent job of tearing down that canard.

Human Rights Activists Defends "Witchcraft" Children: Speaks - July 15th

After almost 4 years of trying, we finally get the chance to host the heroic human rights and child advocate Leo Igwe. Leo will be speaking on July 15th. The program will offer us the chance to hear harrowing challenges and on-going success stories. We'll also have the opportunity to understand our own part in "what's next?". 

 

Who:

Leo Igwe's work covers key areas of interest to us all. He's been doing social justice work for almost 15 years. He'll speak on the link between human rights, civil liberties, health, education and development. The link between skeptical reason, practical activism and social justice is an ongoing project you’re invited to join in. He's in NYC for only one day. Let's turn out to welcome him.

 

Details & RSVP - CFI-NYCFaceBookAtheist Nexus

 

What:

The problems of child abuse, neglect, trafficking and suffering are well known. What is less well known is one of the causes is superstition, irrational tradition and a lack of science-based health care and education. This cripples communities and costs lives.

 

Now there is action that changes lives; rescuing these children from abandonment, stigmatization, mind-numbing abuse, and even murder. They are children (and adults, mostly women, often widows) who’ve been accused of witchcraft and demon possession. They suffer a loss of human rights, human dignity and hope. 

 

Secular Humanist, skeptic and child advocate Leo Igwe is changing things. He has survived slander, harassment by politicians and police, multiple assaults, imprisonment, home invasions and hospitalizing attacks on his family members. His property has been stolen. His father was blinded, losing an eye. He lives under ongoing threats. Yet he continues to risk all and tell the truth for those who's stories would otherwise have no rational witness.

The NYC event for the Day of Solidarity for Black Non-Believers will be in Harlem. In fact the next closes promoted events are in D.C and Philadelphia. So this is serving the whole Tri-State (NY,NY & CT) area.

 

We're putting a special twist on our usual Mind Food + "Soul Food" combo. The details will interest you!

CFI-Harlem/Harlem Humanists will be gathering on Sunday February 26th to celebrate Day of Solidarity for Black Non-believers. This is a time to get together and enjoy bright minds and warm personalities. There's a noble story of freethought from within the African American and Pan-African tradition. This is a chance to connect with this tradition and each other. We'll begin at 1pm. The place is 583 Riverside Dr. in the "Brick Room". It's free. Just e-mail (harlem@centerforinquiry.net) or call (646-820-CFIH) for all the details." RSVP if you can.

See you there. Regardless, please share this in the next two days with all you think will be interested.

Thanks for understanding, Steph. All I'm trying to express is that I want to be able to be an atheist and still maintain a close and joyous connection to my ancestral heritage, just like people of other backgrounds can.

Comment by Steph S. on February 23, 2012 at 11:24am

Sorry to hear about what you experienced here Natalie. It appears that there are bigots everywhere. It seems that AN is not immune. So sad.

We can't afford to mix the religion with ethnicity - this is largely what starts the fights in the first damn place. Religion and ethnicity MUST be kept separate if we're all going to live together.

The actress Felicity Kendal is as white British as I am, but she's a Jew (Jewish convert - I don't know if there's a name for that.)

I worked with a guy a couple of years ago who had converted to Islam - and taken a muslim name. Quite crazy in my opinion and the muslims who worked with him didn't trust him either; they were comparatively easy going whilst he was verging on the extremist.

Secular Europe and the UK thanks to its mongrel heritage are way ahead of the rest of the world in this regard; yet even now the interested parties are trying to confuse being a white/brit with automatically being a Christian - and by that, they mean god-fearing, bible thumping Christian - not the wooly "do good for everyone" sort.
