Welcome to Canadian Atheist!
Who Are We?
The Canadian Atheist blog is collection of atheists from across Canada. Some of us have been involved in the freethought movement longer than we’d like to remember and others are quite new. We range from the East coast to the West coast. Some are members of national or provincial organizations. A few come from very religious backgrounds, others have never had to deal with religion at all while growing up.
While we all come from different areas and backgrounds we all have one thing in common – we think the Canadian atheist movement is important. Not all of us are atheists, we may even have a Christian sneaking about, but we all understand the importance of secularism and critical thinking in a modern day society. We have the inside scoop on what goes on…the gossip, the internal politics, and all the historical context you would ever need to understand any particular situation that happens in Canada.
What Will You Find Here?
The opinions, expertise and interests of Canadian atheists vary greatly. Some have serious issues with “blasphemy” and would just like to hug while others would like to blast religion right out of the world, as soon as possible.
The range of topics posted here will be wide, but that’s because there is a lot of stuff going on in the freethought movement in Canada. That is the great thing about this movement and this country; there is so much going on and there are so many people doing it. What are some of the things you’ll see?
- Event reviews
- Live blogging from conferences
- Discussions on ethics and morality
- News from around the skeptical sphere
- Rants and essays on economics, politics, culture, etc.
