Posted on June 23, 2015 at 12:46am 5 Comments

Where are the honest atheists

Posted on April 14, 2015 at 2:41pm 10 Comments

Damon Linker, a writer[?] for The Week, posits that we no longer are honest about our atheism.

i actually went to the same university with that journo who lost her faith.She was a friend of a friend.I am a data analyst.I knew a few atheists personally as most don't want to come out as atheists coz of the stigma attached.

Hi and thanks for the message. its nearly impossible to be an atheist here in America we are even more hated than the gays. The religious masses dont want any free thinkers to rock their boat.
