Atheist Women: Why Are They More In The Boardrooms Than Heard In The Streets?

index Everywhere I scroll, I find many atheist and secular minded individuals with my same mindset. No God. No religion. Acceptance for all. On the television, it is always the same faces of Dawkins, Harris, Silverman, and occasionally Cupp. I run into the same issues on blog sites like Patheos, Freethought, Secular Coalition, and American Atheists. Same male faces and the dash of a female…

Being an Ex-Muslim and born of Pakistan, it sure brings with itself a barrage of problems, pressures, ridicule and a lot of threats, especially if you happen to be an atheist and are fighting for your right to be an apostate or stand and oppose religious beliefs.



If you happen to be born in a country that takes Islam as the forefront for law-making, rights and the way of life to be run in that country, then you're most likely stripped away with a great deal of freedom of choice,…

Dealing with a religion and culture that shuns free-thinkers and Atheists alike.

Coming from an Islamic country, where the majority comprises of Muslims, anything that a person questions or doubt about it is quickly shunned or shot down without leaving any room to justify your base of questioning. 



Everytime you question the teachings and the contradictions associated with it, you're met with severe hostility, or ridiculed for your actions, and when you criticize it, you're faced with a lot of threats which leaves a person in a high state of depression as well…

Atheist Congregations

I've been thinking about the many different kinds of freethinkers/atheists/non-theists I run into. Here is my breakdown of the sectarians in the naturalistic "community." I hope this starts a healthy, productive, creative discussion!



A: Angry, aggressive and obsessed with anything anti (a, a, a, non, un. . .)

T: Thoughtful, thinkers and tend toward positive conversations and mutual learning

H: Humanistic; community-centered; socially conscious and good-hearted

E:… Continue

Pete Stark, I Salute You

This post was imported from Livejournal on 2008.07.18



I don't think many people realize how amazingly important it was that Pete Stark admitted his godlessness. It's a lot like the episode of Ellen when she "came out" on the show. It's completely unprecedented, and it opens the door for other politicians to do the same. There are atheist… Continue
