Atheists come in all shapes and sizes

Brick WallRecently, many atheist’s bloggers have commented on “Fundamentalist Atheists.” However, if there are fundamentalist atheists, they seem to be a minority group within a minority group (according to a recent Newsweek poll, only 3% of Americans claim to be atheists).

Personally, I have not discovered many of these fundamentalist atheists. However, I’ve found the following types of atheists in blogsphere:

and finally The Homeless Atheist (however, this may be a scam since there is a paypal link to donate šŸ™‚ )

What type of atheist are you?

    I’m a grape-flavored one.

  • […] Finally, I always find articles like this a little strange. They seem to imply on some level that atheism constitutes a body of like-thinking people. There’s no Church of Atheism. We don’t have membership cards or weekly meetings. Well, sometimes groups do form, but they are not representative of atheists in general any more than one book club represents all readers. As mentioned in a blog post I read recently, we come in all shapes and sizes. […]

    Yeah, I just like to say it twice, just in case people get confused. Or something. šŸ™‚

    You linked me, but I’m the Atheist Jew. There is a Jewish Atheist blogger too.

    Thanks for the link, however I’m not a scam artist. Just because I have a PayPal donate button, doesn’t mean it may be, or is, a scam. I live in a tent city and sell homeless activist newspapers. I put up the PayPal button for help with hosting fees. Anyhow, nice WordPress theme, and keep on blogging.

    I found your blog and turned the name around to keep the flow of the blog.


    Forgive my skepticism. I’ve dealt w/this from Christians my entire life. BTW, how much are your hosting fees?

    Can I be a doubting atheist?

  • 8. agnosticatheist  |  April 6, 2007 at 6:40 am

    Of course!

    Are you familiar with the Atheist blogroll? Lots of other Atheist names there:)

  • 10. Chad  |  April 6, 2007 at 8:56 pm

    I am a skeptic too. My hosting fees are small, like 9.95 a month.

    Thanks for the response, Chad. My recommendation is to switch your blog to WordPress (free) and use the funds for living essentials. BTW, the paypal link on your about page doesn’t work.

Agnostic Atheism Wager

Whether or not you believe in God, you should live your life with love, kindness, compassion, mercy and tolerance while trying to make the world a better place. If there is no God, you have lost nothing and will have made a positive impact on those around you. If there is a benevolent God, you will be judged on your merits and not just on whether or not you ignored the lack of evidence of his/her existence and blindly believed.
