What The Fuck Are Atheist Doing?
So it seems to me that exposure of atheists and atheist issues has been on the rise in the last few years. I think this is a wonderful accomplishment and to be taken very seriously.
There are recent books which have been New York Times best sellers like The God Delusion, Breaking the Spell, The End of Faith, God is not Great, Infidel and others. We have a wonderful recent movie from Bill Maher; Religulous.
If you are into new media like I am it is impossible to keep track of all the freethought podcasts out there. Blogs are even more ubiquitous. We are getting our message out there.
In Canada and England we are boldly beginning to advertise on the sides of buses. The Freedom from Religion Foundation has advertised on billboards here, in the U.S.
Skepticism is thriving on new media. I follow several websites.
Science enthusiasm is rife with wonderful products, has anyone watched Nova lately?
There is great stuff online like Edge.org and Vega science trust, and I also enjoy the science channel, animal planet, and National Geographic on cable.
So what are we doing?
We have resources?
We are producing?
What are we doing?
What is our objective?
Do we just want to get rid of religion?
Is there nothing else that is a common goal to the sentiments of those who oppose religion?
Is there a common thread for the goals of skeptics, atheists, and science enthusiasts?
Is there a deeper sense of shared common values?
