Welcome

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.

As can be seen from some of the idiots already commenting here, one cannot expect much politically from atheists as a group. I participated in the Occupy DC movement along with other freethinkers, but we did so as individuals. It would be utterly pointless to attempt such a thing under the banner of atheism. Future discussion of this subject should go under a new subject heading, rather than to clutter this wall with this topic.

True. I should have probably prefaced that link with I agree with the basic premise and so on. The basic point, however, still remains completely valid in my opinion. So they do "claim" to have our best interests at heart, but they are no obligated to do so outside of the realm of what makes them money, while our Government is there "by the people and for the people" (or however the quote goes).
Comment by TNT666 on November 3, 2011 at 10:33pm
Well at least the closing of that paragraph is wrong. Big pharma DOES claim they have our best interests at heart, as does Bill Gates, as does Monsanto, as does Enron. In fact most billionaire corporate tycoons think they're saving the world, and all of us along with it... by providing us with all these crappy undervalued jobs. Billionaire corporate tycoons claim that without their cheap labour policies, we'd all be without work... poowee! as if there wasn't happiness before corporatism. That article does like Fox News, sprinkle a couple of truths throughout, and then come to a nonsense conclusion. Just keeping it real here...

This article is the real reason why I, as an American, cannot fully support the Occupy movement. I agree with their objections, just not with their target

However, I am all for getting the money out of the government. Our government should be ruled by everyone, not just by those who have the money to bribe them

I would love for groups of atheists to speak out publicly for Occupy Wall Street, but I'm not holding my breath... outside of biblical issues, most of the atheists I've met are pretty status quo with the powers that be. Completely opposite atheists of the previous century.

Atheist Voyager, the Mormon at the end of the video stated that their church was inclusive of different people. But he didn't mention that they only fairly recently allow Blacks as members. I also believe women are not allowed the same leadership opportunities in the Mormon church as men.

I've been busy elsewhere. I missed us passing the 450 member mark. Now I have to catch up on the discussions I missed.

I noticed this in my travels to Latin America too. I was 18 when I first travelled to Mexico, I've also lived in Ecuador, volunteered in Costa Rica and visited Republica Dominicana. It is a typical experience to step into public transit and find two pictures: Jesus and a naked play girl. As a third generation who'd always hated religions, I thought these side by side pictures were so classy ;)

A perfect demonstration of religious hypocrisy.
