"When I was in high school, I decided that I wanted to leave the world better off than it would have been if I had not existed. This started a quest, through 12 years of college and on to today, to try to discover what a "better" world consists of. I have written, and will soon publish, a book describing that journey."
Atheist and skeptical perspective on news, current events, politics, science, and more.
"Atheists are one of the few groups left in American society that it is both socially acceptable and politically required to oppose. Our politicians must proclaim their Christianity to have any hope of being elected. ... I will use this blog to organize my thoughts on religion and politics in American life. I also hope to spark some discussion and critical thinking in others."
"I'm hoping to use this blog to rant, ponder, and get my thoughts straight when debating Christian apologists. I get personal enjoyment out of pondering the existence of God, discussing early Christian history, etc. so hopefully this will be fun."
"Theology is the study of theism; Atheology is the study of atheism. I am The Atheologist. Why don't Atheists embrace religion when the vast majority of humans do? Why are Atheists regarded by most of society as thugs, rabble, vermin and generally naughty people. The Atheologist will attempt to seek out the true answers to these and many more questions..."

Douglas of California
Not a blog, really, but a series of interesting essays by Douglas Shaver: "I believe the greatest impediment to human progress is the confusion of epistemology with ethics. This confusion is manifest in many ways, and they are all bad, because they all suppose that in at least some important instances, the truth must be what we wish it to be."
Debate, discussion, and irreverent humor from an atheistic, humanistic perspective.

I value love."
Kele's Atheistic and Evolutionary Journey
"Follow me on my journey of learning about atheism, religion and evolution. I know I can be an ignorant and arrogant little ass sometimes, so I welcome anyone to disagree with me. This is a journey of sorts, and I'd like to be pointed out my mistakes in thinking so I can learn from them. Thanks!"
Kill The Afterlife
"The concept of an afterlife is inhumane and immoral. Belief in the continuation of your "soul" or consciousness after death is wishful thinking. Belief in an afterlife devalues the one life that actually exists: this one." Naturally, this blog focuses on arguments for and against (mostly against) the existence of an afterlife.
"Naturalistic atheism is a blog dedicated to the discussion of arguments, news, and other information relevant to naturalistic atheism, the view that no supernatural beings exist."

Nonetheless, I press on for I find joy and liberation in my unbelief. I may die not finding answers to all my questions, but I will die with no regrets."
The Evangelical Atheist
"The Evangelical Atheist is a 'voice crying in the wilderness.' Perhaps one more such voice in the struggle against religion won't change anything, but it certainly can't hurt. Posts ... deal with Theology, the Politics of religion, news items that are relevant and my general observations and opinions."
The Raving Atheist
The title "raving" wasn't chosen randomly or as part of an accident (nothing in the universe is random, right?).
