Well, this is Evangelically Atheist‘s first official post!
I want to thank those who gave to the Indiegogo fundraiser to help this project get off the ground. I was able to secure a domain, some goodies like shirts, buttons, stickers and business cards, and it allowed me to take time off from more profitable tasks to focus on building a decent resource for atheists, freethinkers, and doubters.
On the website, there are links to podcasts, merchandise, quotes, books, ebooks, debates, history videos, local atheist communities in the U.S., music, and the like. Be patient as we continue to build the website, as there’ll be more quotes, musicians, books, videos and groups added. If you see something I missed, feel free to shoot me an email.
I have been questioned many times about the name of the website, Evangelically Atheist. I’m merely stealing a word Christians use, Evangelize or Evangelism; meaning to proclaim a good message, rooted in the word, messenger. Atheist is a term that is self-explanatory: non-theism, or no belief in a god.
Poke around the website. I hope you will find it satisfactory. The donation page, at this hour, still has the Indiegogo fundraiser up. If you feel inclined to give, feel free to do it there, or hit the Paypal link provided.
Again, thank you. And below is a taste of what the blog area of this website will contain. Also, yes, we accept submissions.
