Today, June 21st, is Atheist Solidarity day. It is the day when we take the time to remember the hardships individuals have had to endure for becoming openly Atheist. It is also a time to celebrate how far we have come in the world. Religion, as a source of concrete conclusions and unquestionable authority, is becoming less and less influential throughout the world. Though I'm sad to admit that this does not appear to be the case in the United States, my hope is that we too will evolve our thinking as the rest of the world has begun to. The U.S. remains one of the most religious nations, a fact that can make being an open Atheist rather difficult. So, today goes to you, those that live as open Atheists, and to those of you struggling to come out as Atheist. We are always here to help you if you need it.
In addition to this rather short post, I would like to apologize for not having written as much in the last 2 weeks. I have had an extremely busy two weeks preparing for licensing exams, but I have some good topics I want to write about, so expect them soon!
Thanks for reading, and take care!
