Making Atheism Stand for something more than just a lack of belief?

Posted on February 6, 2011 at 12:36am 8 Comments

Yes, the classical definition simply means that you don't believe in a god.

 

Here's what I would like to see for the future, though:

-activism. A striving for equality and understanding.

I grew up surrounded by racism, class-ism, ableism, sexism, sizism, homophobia and a whole lot of other -ism's that are negative, and detrimental to society, by splitting it up into "us" and "them", and a lot of these are in religion, some are outside of it, but much of it, is…

Hey there.  I noticed that you are a young atheist who contributes to Atheist Nexus, and I wanted to quickly tell you about a new project I’m starting up. It’s called Generation Atheist, and it’s a collaborative blog project created for young atheists, agnostics, sceptics, freethinkers and non-theists to come together and explore issues that affect their lives.

 

It can seem daunting to voice your opinions about religion in the real word, especially if you live in a predominantly theistic community. Many young people think about setting up websites or blogs to get their voices heard, but it can be difficult to find something to write about regularly and to get traffic to your blog. The aim of Gerneration Atheist is for us all to come together and support each other by reading and commenting on each others’ work as well as finding out own voices.

 

It’s a very new project at the moment, but we have a backlog of articles written by a variety of young people that should last us a couple of weeks, posting one every day. I was hoping that you would check out our group on Atheist Nexus, the link to which is here. From there you can find a link to the blog. It would be really great if you could read the articles as they appear and comment on them. It would be really super great if you wrote an article of your own!

Doesn't mean you don't deserve to be treated nicely.

Haha, hope that wasn't very rude.
