New rational activism projects from RRS
Activists from The Rational Response Squad have started working on a project that some might be surprised to see us working on. We have started putting together a new site at www.atheismunited.com with a few activists who started a facebook group called "Atheism United." The project aims to unite all atheists under one banner for the first time in internet history. A creative campaign is coming in 2012 to promote the actions of "Atheism United."The new site will link to every atheist site we can manage to list. The list is already about 5 times longer than any list of atheist sites we've found in our searches.
Over the last 5 years The Rational Response Squad has been accused of being too strident or aggresive with our tactics. In that time we've consistently stated that we support other atheists right to be passive or less aggressive than us. This message wasn't always accepted as a persuasive argument for acceptance of RRS methods by those who play passive. Because of this some of us thought it would be nice to lead by example.
Significant contributions from Brian Sapient along with a group of RRS mods, admins, and other atheist activists are already playing a lead role in creating atheistmunited.com. Atheism United will aim to host the most extensive list of external links for atheism on the internet without discretion. The site will universally accept you and your brand of atheism without prejudice.
We need your help ensuring that our list of sites is extensive, so please visit a wiki page we made to help create the list and ensure your favorite sites are listed (including your own):
If you're not already stunned at the notion that the RRS will get help create a project that supports adversaries of "new atheism" there's more. Since inception RRS has united people around what we don't believe in. Sure, we've talked about the issues that are important to us but we have not tried to unite under a set of principles that we believe in. That's about to change. We now have a vision statement and it's under constant revision. Atheists with privs to enter the VIP forum can see that thread here: http://www.rationalresponders.com/forum/30378
We'll also have a host of new bloggers contributing on the new website. Are you an atheist interested in blogging on a very popular site and sharing ad revenue? Details are here: http://www.atheismunited.com/wiki/Atheism_United_Blogger
