The "sex" bit is largely an attempt to appease/nullify the appeal of Islam/prevent terrorism and the oppression of women etc, not prudishness, just to nip that one in the bud. Enjoy, criticise, applaud, question - post your thoughts AF!

RE: A positive identity for atheists - Crusading Faithful Atheism
I'm still running with this - thought the admin would rather I didn't "clutter up" the forum with a second CFA thread so...anyway, theocratic facebook refused my request to advertise CFA because...well, they wouldn't say, basically, but I've heard it said before that they're very "pro religion" so...how to advertise?! Any ideas about how I might get the ball rolling with a vengeance, as it were? Budget - £1200...for now...

You want to promote atheism Lawz? Hand that cash to a local schools stem projects. Post about it all over, tweet about it, set up an account specifically for that and implore others to do the same.

School STEM projects aren't definitively atheistic AFAICT...correct me if I'm wrong. In any case I prefer to promote atheism with CFA, that way there's actual meat on the bones. Beneficial, characterful, medicinal meat at that. Was it Freud who said you can't get rid of religion without replacing it with something....can't remember and google ain't helping...anyway, that kind of noise.

People here aren't even donating to keeping this forum up and running.

Good luck with raising funds.

Of the $29.00 per month that's being donated here, one person is putting in $20.00.

You do the math.

I'd donate more to this site if I didn't think that in doing so I would appear to be agreeing with the...outspoken...views espoused by the admin and mods on various topics/users (myself included).

If you're donating anything at all, that's more than most of the folks here do.

I used to post on Quora frequently. Because of their algorithm, I got tons of questions about atheism and atheists. Over and over, I explained that atheism is just the state of mind were you don't hold a belief that any God or gods is/are real; and atheists are people in that state of mind. There's nothing more to it, although atheists vary greatly in their degree of certainty.

Given a good set of rules for moral behavior, atheism adds nothing to them. It doesn't justifify them or make them better. And most atheists I know can't reasonably be described as 'people of faith' or 'crusaders' and many would actually object to those terms being applied to them. This idea, however noble, is a non-starter.
I'm not anti-Christian. I'm anti-stupid.

My identity as an atheist is already positive.

Golf has rules
Not golfing has no rules

You are attempting to add rules to something that doesn't need rules.

You might as well add rules to people who don't play golf.
