Think Atheist is a social networking site focused on current events and building a global Atheist community. Our goal is to create a space where people from all over the world can connect and share their Atheist experiences and/or their conversion stories.
First of all, this is a site for everyone! :] No one is excluded no matter what their background is or what beliefs they hold. We invite you to join in all discussions on every topic or issue addressed here on Think Atheist. We extend respect to all guests and members, and expect the same courtesy in return.
Atheism is on the rise all over the world, but some of us are having trouble finding our voice above the white noise of religion. Even more of us feel ostracized by the “believing” majority. If you fall into those categories, Think Atheist is your safe place to come out and learn how to have a dialog with friends, family, and strangers about your belief that the world was not created but is in its current state because of complicated and beautifully unguided processes. This is a place you can add to your own knowledge about the universe and share with others what you’ve discovered in your own studies and research.
We hope this site enriches your life and empowers you to feel a little better about the world around you.
So how does it work?
Think Atheist is a news and social networking Web site (like Facebook or MySpace), except with an Atheist twist. We are a fun, active community that provides a place for you to share and network with other freethinking individuals. Here are a few things you can do on this site:
Questions About Think Atheist
Can my organization have a profile?
Yes! We believe religion affects us all and that we can only find solutions to problems posed by religion by working together. We encourage organizations to join us in order to help continue to build a safe, fun, and thoughtful community which is united by atheism. Our mission statement is a call for global change around misconceptions about atheism.
What is the purpose of Think Atheist?
Think Atheist was created to help people "come out" about being atheist. Our vision is to encourage everyone who is atheist to get involved with changing stereotypes and misconceptions regarding his or her decision to abstain from religion or a belief in deities of any kind. Bigotry against atheism is still very rampant in our communities, our schools, and even amongst family members. Think Atheist aims to give our members the proper tools to fight anti-atheist hate and discrimination.
