We, the atheist contributors to allyourfaitharebelongtous.com, are an odd sort. A menagerie of intellect, humor, and the common man (or woman); our contributors represent the ‘everyman’ atheist and his struggle through life.
Atheist is often seen as a dirty word by the self-described faithful in this society and as a result the meaning is often distorted. Even dictionaries distort the meaning of the term, equating it with immorality. Atheism is not a term to deride or to fear – it is a term used to express a non belief in the supernatural entity called ‘god’. This disbelief is the only common bond that atheists share. We are patriots, we are passionate, we are just like the believer, with the exception that we put our faith in the autonomy of man and the responsibility for mankind’s progress and survival squarely on our shoulders as opposed to vainly hoping in a magic man who will solve our problems.
Our goal is to inform and to critically analyze the most sacred topics of modern society by providing in depth articles that analyze deeply held beliefs. We are ardent in our quest for truth and we will not capitulate our commitment to reason to the dogmas that fester in popular society. To that end we will expose prejudices of society, to examine the intellectual weaknesses of our leaders, to ask questions of what is held by belief alone, and to provide a haven for those who share our vision of unabashed free inquiry.
The world came of age with the enlightenment because of the candle of reason, and that fire must be fought for and defended, lest the bands of myopic dogmatists extinguish it again in another dark age. The forces of the willfully ignorant are many, and their tactics insidious; but our weapon of reason serves as an antidote to the disease of ignorance, and it must be administered.
People who earnestly seek the truth should be able to find helpful resources to help them with their journey – and allyourfaitharebelongtous.com is intended to be one of these resources.
While here, we hope that you also visit some of our less serious articles, for levity is an additional need of the common man. Sometimes it helps if we laugh at those beliefs that at one time we held so fiercely, but now can view as nothing other then hopelessly silly.
