Further explanation for this site:
Iím often E-mailed by theists (usually Christians) asking me why I spend so much time talking about gods, why I have to make a site about not believing in gods, and why I even care about such things if I donít believe.
To me, such questions seem pointless. Why do so many people who believe in gods or a god spend so much time trying to talk others into believing what they believe? Answer: because they want to. I made this site because I wanted to. If an atheist is going to be open with his or her atheism, especially on the Internet, he or she will eventually be badgered or defamed in some way by a believerómost likely a Christian. A discussion of some sort between a believer and an unbeliever is inevitable if the unbeliever makes no effort to keep his or her atheism secret. When such a discussion comes about, it is helpful to have something by which a person may gather information to help him or her in articulating as best as possible why he or she believes or does not believe a certain thing. This site is not an attempt to move a believer to becoming an atheist.
Whether or not an atheist wishes to discuss his or her atheism is up to that particular atheist. As for myself, I enjoy the subject of atheism. Because I enjoy it, I have no qualms about spending a little time here and there talking about atheism. My atheism is important to me and has changed my life in so many ways I canít even begin to list them hereóall for the better, mind you.
There are many people who have just become an atheist or who doubt their theism, such individuals need a place to turn to for guidance and advice. When a person realizes that he or she no longer believes that there is a god, it can be a moment of confusion and may be frightening to many. Many experience joy and a sense of freedom, along with sadness and anger. A helping hand will usually be much appreciated and is usually much needed during such a phase in a personís life.
To me, it is not only important but also necessary that some atheists discuss their atheism and make the reasoning behind it public. It is no surprise that so many religionists would like to see atheists keep quiet about their atheism. Atheism threatens this type of religionist; it means that someone out there believes the religionist is wrong and may help others come to that same conclusion. To this religionist, Iím sure the idea of all atheists keeping quiet about their atheism and letting the existence of atheism slowly slip away and out of the minds of everyone would be quite nice. Fortunately, not all atheists have been pushed into a quiet, dark corner by the fear of criticism and negative stigmas.
I try to keep a friendly attitude on the site, though I may seem rude in a few of the things I write on the Encounters page or the Response to Guestbook Entries page. Usually, it is me being stupid and creating humor at the expense of someone who was either extremely rude to me--or is simply so incredibly stupid that to ignore it would be a crime. I don't generally make a habit of smearing someone's face in their own stupidity, but there are times when such things are necessary.
