    Freedom of Speech

    Atheists are entitle to freedom of speech just like everyone else.  Unlike the theists, we do not preach hate or bigotry yet we are the most critized and most censored group in the US.  Why is this?

    Is That Even Questionable?

    In your country?  Where you all live, people?  When? Everybody is born an atheist. A completely pure clean consciousness. Only the society later makes the people what they are. Everybody is born an atheist. Most of you only do not know that, because you...
