Atheist Census’ back online after hacker attack

Posted: 17 Dec 2012 05:40 AM PST

Atheist Alliance International reports that its Atheist Census, an attempt to count the world’s atheists, is now back online after hackers took it down more than a week ago.

“It seems that there are people who do not want atheists to be counted, who do not want to accept that as more people question and think critically about religion atheists are a growing demographic. It is a measure of the project’s success – even at this early stage – that some people wanted to shut it down,” Carlos Diaz, the organization’s president, said in a prepared statement.

The group launched the census on Dec. 7 and it fell to a Denial of Service attack about 17 hours later. At the time that the census site was attacked, about 8,800 people had completed the survey, with another 2,300 pending.

Participation in the Atheist Census is free. Since the return of the site, about 20,000 total people have submitted their information to the effort, which is attempting to collect demographic information about atheists throughout the world, including their education levels, age, gender identity and country.

The Atheist Census can be found at http://www.atheistcensus.com/

A haunting look backat the Nazi persecution of homosexuals.

I wish I could see the exhibit, even though it would depress me.  Florida is too far away.  Photos tell me more than words, and this exhibit has hundreds.

"

hard to say exactly how many gay men were sent to concentration camps... between 5,000 and 15,000... castrated, brutalized or marked for “extermination through work.”

This is a reminder, also, that threats by bigots always need to be countered.  This is what they want, again.  Not an exaggeration -    even today, people like hate group leader Tony Perkins are often on TV representing "conservative" point of view,  and multiple leaders of these "conservative christian" "pro family" groups have supported and lauded the Ugandan plans for jailing, persecution, and in some cases execution, of LGBT citizens.

The photo of the two bearded gentlemen is beautiful.  I saw it printed with a news article and it just made me smile with satisfaction.

This is really great news. Now the watch is on to see what the Supreme Court will decide. At least marriage rights are going in the healthy direction.

Portland Maine to start marriage equality at midnight, Dec 29.

via joe.my.god which has lots of great stuff today.  What a cute couple.  by the way, I remember when I moved 20 years ago to the Pacific NW.  My Midwest friends said "why? You into flannel or something?"  Never regretted it.

also this from joe.my.god:


Seattle city hall was fully booked up for marriages, so: "Judges will come into the courthouse on their day off, unpaid, to meet the demand"

 

I will shut up now before I start gushing.

By the way, someone who often logs into Nexus,  also applied for a marriage license today, in Clark County WA.  Nondramatic.  People were nice.

No one ever accused the reparative therapy crowd (think Marcus Bachmann) of using logic, but their latest claim is hair-brained and hilarious. The purveyors of false science being forced out of play, false false science people will perform their abortions in dark places at night with coat hangers.
