Yesterday, I called upon His Noodliness and asked for a sign as to whether or not I should create a Kinja group blog for atheists.
...I took the the resounding support from Groupthinkers as a sign that yes, there should be an atheist blog on the Kinja network.
Thanks to Gamecat235's technical support, Unapologetically Atheist was born!
Those of you who expressed interest yesterday, if you look under your seats, you will find that YOU HAVE AUTHORSHIP PRIVILEGES!
How I envision this blog:
This blog is for people who are tired of having to temper their expression of nonbelief.
If you find religion oppressive, regressive, and/or offensive, this blog is for you!
If you are struggling in your journey to nonbelief, we're here to help! Personally, I fully committed to atheism just two years ago after leaving agnosticism behind. I was raised Catholic, so if you're still suffering from the scars it can bring, I can totally relate.
If you think that, if there were a god, it should be Neil deGrasse Tyson, let's talk about SCIENCE! I'm a developmental psychologist who studies the aging process, so I'm always down to geek out!
If you would like posting privileges, just ask in the comments below!
Right now, Gamecat and I are the admins. If I find I could use a hand, I'll make a post and ask.
If you need to express any concerns privately (e.g., issues with another commenter), please send an email to atheistkinja [at] gmail [dot] com. If you don't hear from me in a reasonable amount of time, just write me a comment and I'll check the email.
Looking forward to blogging with you all!
