Why do people misunderstand Atheism? There are many myths, misconceptions, and misunderstandings that people have about Atheists and Atheism.
I did not come up with the idea of AlabamaAtheist.Org to deconvert anyone. The purpose of AlabamaAtheist.Org is to educate about Atheism and Atheists. It is my hope to eliminate preconceived biases about Atheism and Atheists, which have persisted throughout history and into modern times. Through editorials, articles, debate and addressing common questions people have about Atheism and Atheists, I hope to dispel those very myths, misconceptions, and misunderstandings.
I want this to be easy. Visitors should not need a doctorate in philosophy or theology to understand the concepts I present, so I will do my best to write in lay terms. Clearly there will be some subjects where that will be harder to do, but I promise I will do my best to make this is easy as possible.
Most of my answers are geared toward Christianity because I live in a predominantly Christian country. My biggest “fan base” are Christian proselytizers emailing me warnings of Hell and damnation (often laced with hate and death threats). It is rare that non-Christian religions contact me.
I am open to comments, suggestions, questions, or rebuttals. If you have anything to submit, then please do so by sending me an email. Because of the volume of email I receive I may not be able to respond, but I do read every email I receive.
I am the Communications Director, National Affiliate Director, and Alabama State Director for American Atheists, Inc. I am a staff writer for American Atheist Magazine and I manage and moderate the NoGodBlog. My co-host Tom Hand and I run The Critical Eye Podcast. In addition, I am the Founder and Public Relations Director for the North Alabama Freethought Association based in Huntsville, Alabama.
