20 Common Misconceptions About Atheism
Here are presented 20 common misconceptions that theists tend to have about atheists and atheism.

A newer atheism?
Jennifer McCreight has written a new blog post, in which she further tries to make the case that the atheist "movement" is rife with misogyny and women hating. She also attempts to rally her peers to create a newer atheism.

A small problem for Atheism Plus
If you look on our main page, you'll see a link to Non-Believers Giving Aid. Notice the symbol they use? This might be a problem for the Atheism+ crowd.

How I Came To Be an Atheist

Interview with an atheist
When a theist of any religious persuasion enters into debate with an atheist, it is often with misconceptions (possibly on both sides, we admit). So it's maybe a good idea get a few basic points cleared up from the start rather than go over old ground in the Atheists Today forums themselves.

Waiting for the Rapture
And waiting ... and waiting

I recognize the deep need for answers that we all feel, but I fail to understand how anyone can accept non-answers, such as provided by the world's religions, as satisfying that need. Such answers suited when I was 8 or 9 years of age, but after high school, after realizing that 'because I say so' is no guarantee of truth, I can no longer take any comfort from them.
