I am an Atheist

Scarlet A


Okay, so today I am taking part in "I am an Atheist", set forth by the

Here is their description of the day, from their Facebook event page:

We rally for freedom of thought, the right to believe and not to.

We rally to erase the social stigma around nonbelief.

We rally in solidarity with those who live where freedom and equality for nonbelievers is only a dream.

We rally to tell the world: we are nonreligious, we are equal, respect us.

This is not a hate rally: we are against false beliefs, not those who believe in them. Intolerance will not be tolerated.


So, there you go. I am an Atheist. Yet, like you and everyone else, I am more. I am a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a friend, a neighbor, an American.

Look around the Internet and see if anyone else you know has a 'Scarlet A' today.



  1. Peace to you as well...your choice is welcome in my world.

  2. OMG!No I'm kidding!Everyone is free to believe what he wants,freedom of speech and expressions for all and tolerance!
    You're welcome in my world too,but I'm shocked(no I'm joking,humour noir,lol)Oh I wrote a little story this afternoon maybe you will like it,check on my second blog,not the pink one,the dark one! ;)Take care

  3. I'm not a true non-believer, yet I'm not an athiest, either. I believe in the "Evolution" but not through religion. And I do pray a lot, but on my own terms. I know He would understand. Heck, the last time I was at Mass, was back in '85. It was our graduation blessing from Navy boot camp. Does not going to church make one an athiest?

  4. You are all the wonderful things in my life. :)

  5. Thanks to you all for the comments.

    And right back at ya, Ravyn. :)

  6. I think it takes a lot of guts to be an atheist. I'd like to say I was one, but once when my motorcycle broke down on the Oakland Bay Bridge, I have to admit to praying to just about every god I could think of 'cause I was sure I was gonna get flattened by a semi.
    At this point, I'd have to say I'm a fair-weather atheist. But I'm working on it!

  7. Good for you! Freedom is a human right. I'm an atheist and proud of it. And I'm happier for it, too. I even say this when I'm using my real name.

  8. Nice site, Wings. I'm also an atheist (as you might have guessed from my God Detector site), and a movie buff too.


  9. I don't know what I am yet. I might never know. That's part of the fun?

    Interesting that this is the only scarlet letter I saw today. Leads me to ponder.

    With all respect, o' course!

  10. Thanks for the comments, guys.

    And to be fair, Megan, this was mainly a Facebook "event". I just chose to include it in my blog on the same day.
