    Yeah, I know it's taboo and all but I thought it would be cool if we black atheists or free thinkers (if that seems like a friendlier word) could have a forum to discuss certain topics in? That would be very nice. :)

    peace

    I think the 'open forum' pretty much serves that purpose. Not just for 'atheists', but for anything that doesn't have to do with 'god' or religion. Everyone discusses 'certain topics' in that forum.

    It'd be nice to just have a forum section for non-theism in general, but I don't think there are enough of us.

    It would not make sense.

    There's no such thing as a Black atheist.

    :)

    It always amazes me how much Africans admit to hating themselves.

    "Negro" relates to "Necro" because Africans were obsessed with their ancestry, their after-life, and their God. This was AFRICANS. There's no Black atheist. There are only God-loving Africans and tanned Europeans.

    Who ever heard of unity among Africans in Atheism? That's the White man's Philosophy.

    We might as well have another thread on White Supremacists. :lol:

    .......True, it becomes a non sequitur...since atheism is largely the absence of belief that deities exist.


    Peace In,

    I guess we should also add to the list of reasons as not knowing with atheism actually means or knowing that there are quite a number of Black one (both past and present).

    Here is the new Atheist Study Group Forum ... http://destee.com/index.php?forums/atheist-study-group.188/

    I'm moving this thread to that forum, and those not interested, consider it foolishness, etc., please don't post there.

    The Study Group Forums have a higher standard and the contentious, challenging energies aren't allowed.

    Love You and Enjoy!

    :heart:

    Question:

    The definition of a freethinker is one who rejects established religious dogma. This does not necessarily mean a non-belief in God. So, does this new thread allow for the input of freethinkers (such as myself) or is it strictly for atheists?

    Just asking for clarity.
