A message to all members of Atheist Nexus
On July 10th Atheist Nexus will be one year old! Please help us get to 10,000 members by this day. Email your friends or use the "Invite tab" on Nexus.
Nexus member, Kristy Vensson has sent the below letter to her friends and invites you to send it to yours.
Atheist Nexus celebrates its 1st birthday on July 10, and it has a goal of reaching 10,000 members by this day. Please consider joining.
Nexus provides a 'theist-free' zone for nontheists to chat, debate, blog and give others support. The site includes numerous forums, blogs, and a chat room.
Also, there are 485 groups on Nexus. Some are national and regional groups which can put you in touch with local nontheists. Others are interest related: science, photography, writing, parenting, Shakespeare, GLBT, evolution, etc.
Primarily, Nexus provides social support for nontheists. However, it is not in competition with other organizations. In fact, one of its aims is to support them. Many already have their own groups on Nexus: American Atheists, Atheist Alliance International, American Humanist Association, Secular Student Alliance, and many more.
Prominent nontheist members include PZ Myers, Margaret Downey, Roy Speckhardt (AHA), Dale McGowan, Hemant Mehta (The Friendly Atheist), and James Morrow (author of the Godhead trilogy).
Nexus has also attracted many academics. Oxford educated Dr Terence Meaden runs a successful group called "Origins: Universe, Life, Humankind and Darwin". Professor Tom Arcaro drew on Nexus members for his recent sociological study of over 8,000 atheists. Nexus Member, Emeritus Professor Robert A M Gregson of the Australian National University provided invaluable support and advice in drafting the recent Atheist Nexus submission to the Australian Human Rights Commission on "Freedom of Religion and Belief".
In order to have any voice, nontheists must unite, and Nexus provides a central point for us to come together in solidarity.
