I'm not a Filipino yet but I'm moving to Cebu in a few weeks. It would be nice to find some fellow nonbelievers there since I'm sure to be outnumbered.

Created By The Pinoy Skeptics, John Paraiso, Levi Monton

More Info" 'A' Week on Facebook ran from 29 March 2010 to 6 April 2010. 'A' Week was an online event to raise awareness that the world is full of people who are 'good without God' and who don't need religion to influence their lives.

Become a fan of 'A' Week to receive the latest updates, news of any future events, and to network and connect with like-minded people - click 'Become a Fan' here --->

Over 15,000 people took part, changing their profile picture to an 'A' for a week...

Wait? What Facebook? Nope...Here in the Philippines, 'A' Week will be more than a Facebook activity. Atheists will come out in the open and tell to the world that we are proud to wear the 'A' label.

Join other fellow non-believers and tell them that We are Good without God.

Hi guys, I'm new here, so it's good to find atheists like me.

Funny enough, I always doubted God since I was five. My community is a straight Catholic area. Everyone goes to church on a weekend basis. Other religions are unfairly misjudged and treated like lepers in our small society. I hated that, but I then felt that it's an unfair world for the minorities.

Back then, my mom usually brings me to our parish church. It's as big as a cathedral, complete with painted ceilings that look like Sistine Chapel. But then, I realized that everything I'm seeing are comparable to fairy tales, and our priest is the storyteller.

when i was 10, I was always told by my relatives that I'm a lazy churchgoer, but they didn't know that I'm disbelieving the values formation of their religion. I just thought Catholicism wasn't for me.

at 13, i was coerced by my grandparents to be an acolyte, and I did simply because I was receiving money right after every Mass. Bear an hour of standing around,boring conversations and singsong foolishness for P100 wasn't really bad. Back then, I got to meet a lot of people since I loved to go on adventures. I met people from different religions and tried each one of them.

by 14, I tried to be a Buddhist. A japanese friend asked me to try it out since they had a somehow small temple at their house. All the hours of meditation was good at first, but it somehow made me think that it limits me as human. I was still an acolyte. A few months after, I had a girlfriend who was an Iglesia ni Cristo. Tried it out. Didn't work for me because it was still god centered and it was stupid how they would get scriptures and stuff.

by 15, another girlfriend of mine was a Jehovah's Witness. I tried again, and darn i got out immediately. too many restrictions, mayhem and foolishness. I graduated the same year, opting to go to UP, but to no avail.

by 16, I stopped going to church. I read manuscripts about all religions to learn and defy them. Jewish, Islam, Scientology, JIL, Satanism...I learned them all. At this point, i got to learn that i should respect all religions but keep myself atheist.

I am in a Christian school, and hell I don't care of their modern theology and their catholic practices. I'm currently in the school paper- a neutral team of different religions and nonbelievers. Here i can speak freely without ever being prejudiced.

RELIGION - Division made by a fairy tale we call God.

I'm an atheist, hear me...
... dissect and analyze any claim made without sufficient documentation and perspective.
... stand up to those who claim to have a monopoly on moral/ethical understanding.
... promote a more human approach to sustainability, growth, and happiness.
... disagree, withhold my judgment till I have all the facts straight as well and change my mind when new information comes up.

In addition to Ian's points on secularization, the restoration and full enforcement of the principle of separation of church and state is supposed to be our constitutional protection from people like Amadinajad (spelling?--Iranian president), things like Proposition 8---ironically from the very country that first enshrined this separation principle, and the invasion of state university faculty departments by academics from religious schools.
