The Nonbelievers & Godless Heathens of the Atheist Republic

Atheist Republic provides opportunities for non-believers around the world to gather with like-minded people, share their views and also provide each other with tools to better express themselves online and offline. We believe that atheists can proudly stand against the unfair judgment that so frequently plagues godless and non-religious people.

Atheist Republic advocates against religious and dogmatic teachings that promote violence and oppression. However, we also believe that most people in the world, whether religious, atheist, agnostic or just spiritual, are kind and peaceful by nature. We believe that by coming together, rational people can create a powerful force that cannot be ignored.

Our mission is to invite atheists to join each other and help lessen misery and suffering around us. Atheist Republic is a non-profit organization incorporated under the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act and is dedicated to unifying the already existing demands of many atheists for peace, liberty, justice and freedom of thought and expression everywhere in the world.

Atheist Republic Mission

Here is what others from the Atheist Republic community have to say:

Curtis Robinson

Atheist Republic should address the challenges that Atheists face (internal & external attacks, building confidence, and more importantly connecting with others with similar views). As a Scientist and Atheist, I value the evidence-based pursuit of understanding the nature of life. As Atheists we should learn to arm ourselves with Critical Thinking and how to translate our thoughts into understandable food that others can readily absorb and utilize to their benefit.

Anonymous:

...We should no longer be a generation of people hidden away in cyber-space commenting about what we think and believe. Maybe it starts with asking people about what life is like as an atheist, what were their most memorable moments, and moments that defined them as people, and share these in newspapers, social media, television, pamphlets, books, video-tributes etc.

[we could] Tell others who have left their previous faiths that it is perfectly normal to be experiencing what they feel, like loneliness, isolation, despair and wanting to be accepted, loved and a part of an understanding greater community... Support is the greatest thing we can offer to these people, and everyone else.

Testimonials

I'm happy to find a place that I feel accepted in. I'm normally repressed or insulted for expressing perfectly logical discussions about religion. If we must accept and live amongst religion, then religion must accept us!

I came to Atheist Republic as a somewhat new atheist with no one to talk to about it. Since then I have acquired some of the best friends that anyone could ask for. We may not all agree on everything but we are supportive of each other. AR can really be a safe haven for somebody who has questions but nobody available to answer them.

I have been a atheist for a few years now but I have never had any I can talk to about it. My entire family are Christians and when I bring it up, they get mad at me and try and convert me back to a christian. It always ends up in a fight between me and my dad. I have never truly felt alone in this world until I became a atheist But now that I have found this page and see that I am not the only one going through these types of problems, my life has been looking brighter and brighter and I don't fell all that alone any more. I'm happy this page is here and I'm happy that I have found it. I thank you very sincerely

I came out as an atheist about four years ago, and I haven't looked back at the times of the indoctrination my parents attempted to put me through. I feel like on this forum and with the help of fellow atheists I can tell my ideals to the world!

am from Ghana; proudly Atheist. I always wanted to meet my fellow atheist to share ideal on how we can also educate people about their religion ignorance. It is time Africa Atheist to start preaching to eradicate the religion ignorant in our people. Thanks for this community.

AR is a community where atheists can be themselves and speak openly about topics that theists would typically chastise.

I guess the reason why I can't be a Christian,is that I'm not so poor of character that I would even consider letting someone suffer in my place if I truly Deserved it. AR has helped me to see and know the world as it is..thank you

Life is beautiful. I come to this website not only as a former Christian, but also as a current professor of religion. Reading the like of Harris, Dawkins, Hitchens, Dennett, Jacoby, et al, has been a liberating experience for me. I propose to help others shake free from the bondage of the mind that religion holds people in.

This page... gives me an outlet that I don't have in the real world, living in a small, conservative town, surrounded by religious family members that I don't feel like I can talk to (Not even my own mother). I don't feel so isolated knowing that there are other people going through the same experience as me.

Great interesting new field for my curiosity. I'm interested for it very much. I`m so happy to be in such group, with the people with a same opinion.

Am from ethiopia where a christianity is dominant...I have been an atheist for a few years now but I have never had any one I can talk to about it. My entire family are christians and when I bring it up, they get mad at me and try and convert me back to a christian. It always ends up in a fight between me and my religion freak family. Thanks AR for your greatest community.

I have never been able to find many other, like-minded people. Atheist Republic gives me a home. Here we are one fight. We are one army. We are unified, and here, on AR, we have a rallying point, and a home.

Being an Atheist in an otherwise pretty religious town can get lonely at times. Luckily, the internet also has a place where I can talk with others about my belief in facts. Thank you Atheist Republic!

ATHEISM
I became atheist since last year may 2014. I grew up in an Islamic family. AR is great platforum to express your thoughts and meet with same like minded people. I'm happy that now I'm a atheist - but now it's very hard for me to still live in an islamic state. Trying to found the way to get out from this state and live somewhere else with freedom.

One thing I explicitly enjoy about this group is that even through the good and bad experiences we all may have shared in this group, AR is deeply and inherently a group full of caring, kind-hearted individuals that enjoy the time they spend helping others in ways that many other organizations have attempted and failed to do. No matter what area of the world you may come from, there is a giant home for all of us to live in right here with a massive family of atheists who all promote and share different ideas that we can work together on to accomplish great things. And THAT is exactly what creates a good site on the internet. I am proud to say from an IT standpoint, that with your help, another wonderful addition to the global bandwidth of the internet has been made with both Atheist Republic Masterminds and now a support group linked within the AR website. I applaud the work and efforts of the administration and community alike.

Your articles are inspiring and written in a fashion for the average person to understand, and that is important if you intend at appealing to any theists.

I have always been agnostic I guess.. I have always reasoned each and every act people do in name of their God and Religion. But I could never debate with Believers because I couldn't find enough points to describe how I feel, AR has helped me with enough facts to challenge the Religious evils present

An individual is powerless against oppressive regimes of their country. The only long-term solution will come with education which is why sites like Atheist Republic are so important with the ability to bypass national frontiers and oppressive regimes!

Dear Athiest Republic Community, You are doing a very good job by posting such content in the public sphere. It helps other atheists to understand that they are not alone in having a disbelief in a supernatural being and opposing ridiculous trends of religion. Knowing that other people share the same concerns as yours regarding the outrageous religious traditions also helps them emotionally and mentally. Last but not least, your posts in public spheres help people to be at peace being an atheist in the midst of all the religious dogmas. Once again, Thanks for creating such an online community. Kindly yours, Nagsen R. Kamble

I am from a Muslim majority country and have never thought that I could express myself. But, then there I have found AR and it helped me to opine and meet the equal-minded people.

glad to have found this site. glad to see that there are black atheists like me. at 63, have been atheist since i was 12. hid it for yrs, but it slowly started to come out, and many evangelinut friends tried to bring me back into the fold. i told them i could not come back, as i was never "in the fold," in the first place. sick of rightwing religious nuts tainting the waters between gov and church. thank gawd more and more young people are becoming nones

I love this opportunity to share thoughts. As a Nigerian, I live in a country where everywhere you turn, you see religion in its diverse forms. Atheist republic is so much of an oasis for me. Here, I know that am not alone and I can be myself here and its really great.

I'm just from somewhere in the EAST of AFRICA where the word "atheist" still suprises people, AR helped me to feel that I'm not the only one and this boosted my confidence! keep helping others especially here where we are still few !

I belong to India, a place where religious compulsion has its own hue. Even after having many atheist friends, I have a special place for 'Atheist Republic' because here I get food for my inquisitive mind. I get new ideas about atheism, religion and faith over which I contemplate in order to derive certain rational conclusions about my position on faith and religion. I must say they are doing a wonderful job!

I'm from The Netherlands. We have no such thing here as Atheism forums or websites, for the simple fact we have too many Atheists here I guess. I'm proud of all the work you guys are doing, we can not have enough atheists! It is growing worldwide.

I had false hopes for years, I saw friends of mine praying in vain, I questioned the existence of god to no avail. No one gave me answers. With AR, I have read, I have come to understand so much more. I love that I got to know about this site.

I am from Zambia, the only country in the world where 'Christian Nation' is inscribed in the constitution and the President has vowed to rule by the 10 commandments, so the few Atheists here are forced underground. AR is the only place of refuge for me.

I was raised in a very conservative Christian background – Jehovah's Witnesses to be specific. When I was about 17, I joined facebook like any other teenager but with an added twist. I had been doubting the religion of my family for quite some time. Long story short, if it wasn't for Atheist Republic, I would still feel like religion is a life-preserver instead of understanding that it more resembles a noose. I owe you all so much for saving me from the barbaric ideals that I once held as holy. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I grew up in a muslim family where traditions are followed blindly. My family follows Islam with all their heart and energy. I also used to be the same till I started finding reasons and logic behind the teachings. No one in my family or circles know about me being an athiest. I find this a good platform to share my views and know more about the facts one should know and to increase my knowledge base.
