It’s hard out there for atheists. We’re often called the most hated group in America, ranking right under Zombies, CommuNazis, and even Republicans. Sure, we can run to the safety of our internet forums, our Hitchens and our Dawkins books, and dream of someday living in Europe, but wouldn’t it be stronger, wouldn’t it send a better message to simply live out and proud as an atheist? Make a powerful statement that we are moral, giving people who can be good to our neighbors and love one another without having a personal faith or belief in the irrational.
We’re sure that your friends and family shouldn’t change their notion of who you are because you are atheist (and if they did, those people aren’t really your friends and I don’t want you hanging around them after school anymore). But what we really need are more banners to march under. Emblems to show the world, on a day-to-day basis. Something that won’t simply be seen by the people that have already read the same books and understand the same principles, but will be viewed by everyone from your classmates, the barista at your coffee shop, and everyone who drives by your house on their way to church on Sunday mornings.
We’d like to think we’re providing that here, at The Proud Atheist. So
take a look around, and find something that displays your affection for
logic, science, humility, and good-humor with pride.
The Proud Atheist, like most amazing ideas, was founded while under the influence of one, if not several mind-altering drugs. And, like a rare few hallucino-ideas, it was a good one.
A collection of layabouts, nerds, failed improvisers, and old guys came together to provide the nation’s most reviled minority with what it desired most - a silent voice expressed through somewhat ironic apparel.
As most of the TPA team is sick of mooching off of our (very religious) families, please, oh please, buy our goods.
