Letter from the President   5/5/15

We Are Atheism is currently going through a number of changes, the kind of changes our current board of directors cannot do alone.  We are currently seeking a few new board members and several other volunteers for key positions within We Are Atheism.  Some of the available positions include a permanent treasurer and volunteer coordinator. We are also looking to hire the services of a web developer to aid us in building a brand new website as we will be losing support for the old one.  Experienced web developers only please. If you have any interest in using your skills to promote the well...

Letter from the President 3/23/2015

There is a great deal going on in the world of We Are Atheism and I want to keep you, our supporters, up to date. I have retained the services of an independent tax firm to do a full audit on the We Are Atheism books since its inception.  Amanda Brown has stepped down from her position on our board of directors until such a time as the audit proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that there was no foul play. We are in the process of amending our bylaws to ensure they are compliant with the highest of standards for non profit organizations. I would also like to announce that we are currently...

A Letter from the President of We Are Atheism  3/18/2015

It has been a difficult few days for all of us in the virtual board room of We Are Atheism.  To read about mismanagement within our organization was distressing and disheartening, especially when we had to look into the past of someone we hold in high regard for all of her previous efforts to further the Atheist community. It wasn’t the first time I had delved into the past of We Are Atheism.  Several years ago, like Hemant Mehta, I was informed by an individual calling himself Mark Felt about possible corruption within the organization.  This was before I was ever involved with We Are...

A Letter from the President of We Are Atheism

March 16, 2015 To all of our supporters: First off, let me thank you for being a part of our humanitarian initiatives. Thanks to your donations our organization has been able to render aid all over the country. It has come to my attention that a recent blog post by Hemant Mehta has brought forth some questions about our founder’s activities during the early years of our organization. This has been of great concern to our board of directors and we are currently investigating the claims and will be issuing our findings and an official statement on them within the next 48 hours. Let me assure...

Why remove public displays of religion?

Why remove public displays of religion?

What’s the big deal?  Why should religious symbols, quotes, adornments, and other forms of religious displays be removed from the public sphere?  I get this question a lot and recently in Grand Haven, MI a local patron of the city who lives in a nearby town, Mitch Kahle, decided to ask the city to remove this giant cross from the public land as well as refrain from putting up nativity scenes and other religious messages unless they make clear space for other forms of public information dissemination. See the original letter here.  I want to be clear that what Mitch Kahle and...

Part Four: Concerning the Argument from Numerical Identity

by: Brandon Christen Sorry for the delay in publishing this, the final part in this multi-part series about secular arguments against abortion. Let us recap the argument from numerical identity. The argument states that an entity, A, is numerically singular—that is, it is equivalent to itself. A given chair is itself, and it remains itself at any point in time through the fifty years that it exists. This is a very intuitive position, and is arguably the common sense position most people maintain. When applied to abortion, the argument is that a human being is a human being at age 1, and...
