Atheism is a hot word. Society has attached all kinds of negative meanings to it. It is unquestionable that saying you’re an atheist sounds like you’re accepting there’s something wrong with you. It should not be that way, but that’s the way it is. Thus the movement to try and re-brand us by either trying to change the public understanding of what atheism is or by using a brand new word, such as bright. In the first camp I was introduced, just a few minutes ago, to a website I was not aware existed. The website in question is called Investigatingatheism.com
I was directed to this website via a posting on Richarddawkins.net, an excellent website itself, so I expect teh quality to be high at investigatingatheism.com as well. As I said, it was only a few minutes ago that I visited the site. I printed out lots of stuff to read on the subway, so I can’t tell you what my feelings about the website are until I’ve read whatever it has to say, but if Richard Dawkins suggests it, then it must be good (with a reasonable allowance for error/disagreement of course. Even Richard can’t be blindly trusted all the time!).
