The Atheist Register: We should all register, that way they will know where to find us. 17 atheists have posted already. What were they thinking?
- I'm all for being outspoken about my atheism... but why register to say so, what's the goal here?
Quite simply the goal is to achieve that of which Dawkins and many other note Atheists ask, that we be counted that we come out from behind the shadow and the shame that is cast upon us as Atheists. It has been mentioned that Atheists now, are viewed upon much like the gay community was viewed 40+ years ago. Why should we be ashamed of what we believe, why should we be ashamed of wanting to find the answers instead of assuming them. The only way to achieve this change, to be noticed and to be viewed without the prejudice we are viewed upon with is to do so in numbers, to be proud and to join together in that.
Shame? What the hell is he talking about? Shame? The last time I felt ashamed was when I was a Christian.
I will not be signing... Mojoey passes (or more accurately, rejects the whole fucking idea of a register.)
