Since the boom of the Internet Age, the world has seen a dramatic rise in the number of people who identify themselves as atheists. The Internet has served as a safe haven for non-believers to speak their mind freely, without facing the typical repercussions that come from publicly questioning belief in a deity. For centuries, atheists have been crippled in their attempts to find each other and organize, through the concerted efforts of organized religion to quell the voice of non-believers using social ostracization, intimidation, censorship, and outright violence. However, the Internet has changed all that. Atheists are now coming forward in droves online to discuss their ideas, personal stories, reasons for living without religion, and also to connect and organize with fellow non-believers!
Atheism is simply the absence of belief in a god. Beyond that, there is no area of uniformity among atheists. They comprise every sex, age, race, sexual orientation, income level, and political persuasion imaginable. Some atheists want to speak out against religion. Others don't. Many atheists pride themselves on their freethinking, which allows them to consider ideas without the influence of religious teachings clouding their view. If a topic can be debated, you can bet there are two atheists out there debating it from opposite perspectives.
While the Internet has produced a surge in atheist activity and interest, it has also brought to the fore some of the underlying divisions in the atheist community, which are keeping it in an all-too-fractured state. Even during infighting, most atheists see a core commonality with each other. They seek to unite, but often don't know how. This site hopes to mend some of these rifts.
The pages attached to this category house every atheist, agnostic, bright, humanist, skeptic, non-believer, and secular website we could find. While some of these websites hold disagreements with each other, the ideas driving Atheism United are about solidarity, the notion that our commonalities far outweigh our differences, and the belief that we are more powerful united than divided.
