Atheism, Agnosticism, and Secular Humanism -- communities, information and more
The Secular Web
The Internet Infidels' great and thorough site about atheism and secular humanism today.
"Serving people with no reason to believe." EXTENSIVE list of articles, quotes, links and other general information about atheism, agnosticism, humanism and beyond.
The Young Mining Co's Guide to Atheism and Agnosticism
General reference information about atheism.
Center for Inquiry: NYC
"The Center for Inquiry, an international nonprofit organization, was established in 1976 to promote and defend reason, science and free inquiry in all areas of human endeavor. Through research, education, publishing and social services, we offer a positive secularist alternative to an ethical system based on religion and belief in the supernatural." Really cool folks. Based here.
Institute for Humanist Studies
"[P]romotes nonreligious perspectives on social, political, and ethical issues and serves as a resource for and about the humanist community." Keep track of various current issues relating to humanism, as well as relevant NYC legislation, here.
A group of atheists, agnostics and secular humanists for the tristate area. Meetings open to all.
The Skeptic's Society
More or less what it sounds like. Taking urban legends, general superstitions and outrageous claims for what they're actually worth, and posting the results to the internet.
The Council for Secular Humanism
Campus Freethought Alliance
Secular Student Alliance
Brought to you, more or less, by the late Madalyn Murray O'Hair, the tone of AA hasn't changed much over the years, but their site's content sure is interesting. Take a firm twist of salt with you and look it through if you're curious about anything relating to atheism, in the 20th century or today.
Ask an Atheist
...that is, if you don't want to ask us first.
Evil Atheist Conspiracy
We are after your children and pets.
Infidel Guy Radio
The only atheism-based radio show around? Maybe, maybe not. But it's still fun.
The Skeptic's Annotated Bible
You knew somebody was going to do it eventually. Luckily for all of us, it's online. Also, the Annotated Koran
, and the (in-progress) Book of Mormon
. What else can you hope for?
A big ole' site chock-full of information on different religious groups all over the world. Great for reference material or random browsing.
This little-known, obscure group of monotheists has had a surprising influence on the last several millennia of Western and, more recently, world history. If you're curious, you can read more about their basic belief system here.
A mindbogglingly comprehensive site with a design to kill for. Or pray for. Whatever. In any case, you can send e-mails to the Pope. If that's not awesome, we honestly don't know what is.
Another (actually) small religion that has packed a surprising punch over its four-millennia run thus far. General references on the religion and its history.
Same deal, but this reference is a little on the conservative side for the religion in general. It is, however, pretty thorough for anyone who's curious.
A Christian group monitoring cult activities and dedicated to helping people identify and withdraw from cults when they can. The site has information on a lot of different cults, past and present. Sound a bit dubious? Maybe. But hey, when it comes to some of these groups, we'll take our friends where we can find them to help keep people away.
Beyond Jehovah's Witnesses
A group specifically dedicated to helping people "recover" from the JW experience. Former group members can help each other get over whatever crazy stuff those door-to-door God salesmen put them through in the first place. Interesting, if somewhat disconcerting site.
Ship of Fools / Church of Fools
Do you secretly wish you could go to church without your atheist buddies ribbing you about it? Attend online! The recently-opened Church of Fools lets you participate Sims-style in actual services. Really neat site all around.
King James Bible Online
The Torah Online
The Koran Online
God bless the Humanities Text Initiative at the University of Michigan. And if I believed in one, I'd actually mean that. This site is the source for the easily searchable KJVB and Koran above. It also includes several versions of the Bible (from Martin Luther's translations to the Revised Standard version), the Book of Mormon, non-religious public domain texts and links to sites with even more. Check them out.
*And for some truly interesting stuff, sort through the collection of texts at the Vatican website. Day-um, but there's a lot of stuff on that site. Back in the Day, monks spent
all their time in badly lit dusty areas handwriting copies of this stuff, now it seems they're spending all their time in (hopefully) brighter but probably still dusty areas transcribing it all onto the web. Incredible.
Fundie Watch: Know Thy Enemy
"The Internet was created by the United States of America - a Christian nation...and should not be used to spread anti-Christian, secular, or non-Christian propaganda and hatespeech. This is our Internet, and we should exercise our position as its owners and as the guardians of civilization to stop its misuse."
Yes, at the moment, these links only deal with Christianity, mostly of the Bible-thumping American Protestant evangelical variety. What can we say? No other religion has quite so many large, organized, obnoxious and/or scary groups associated with it. These are hardly the worst of the matter, either--some things don't even deserve a link from here. In any case, when you find the perfect militant Rastafarian site for this link list, be sure to let us know and we'll post it straight away.
Fox News Network
Observe the Christian right in their natural habitat, as they consume insidious propaganda and form tenuous alliances among different packs in order to crush out enemies and gain new territory. (Information on their surprising breeding habits can be found elsewhere.)
A conservative Christian news source that admits it. Rated by our members as "sometimes [even] better than The Onion."
Focus on the Family
Like the new moral majority, only a little bit kookier. If nothing else, check out their movie reviews. Hilarious, except when you realize somebody probably takes them seriously.
Still alive and kickin', so watch for when you'll need to kick back.
All the news you never really wanted to know was even out there.
OBJECTIVE Christian Ministries
So crazy, even the Christians apparently think it's a joke. Certainly seems so, but either way, their campaign to shut down Landover Baptist
is the funniest bit so far.
Ever wish that you could politically distance yourself from the fundamentalist/evangelical Christian segment of the U.S., and/or South Carolina? Now you can! Visit Christian Exodus, a fundamentalist project to take over South Carolina and secede from the union by 2016. We're still not entirely convinced that this isn't a joke, but either way, it is far too freaking funny to be left out of the links list entirely.
The Christian Guide to Small Arms
...Right then. Luckily, this page seems to have been abandoned sometime around 1999, but it's still around for all who want to see it. The host site, The Gospel Plow
, is somewhat scarier.
The Truth for Youth
Super-Christian comics, now with a new fire n' brimstone layout!
The world according to Jack T. Chick. Plenty of demons included.
Tyndale House Publishers
The sinister force behind the Left Behind series. Watch out for them, they're kind of noxious close up.
On the News
The Revealer: A Daily Review of Religion and the Press
Atheist & Agnostic Pro-Life League
A.A.F.S.? (Are you Actually F*cking Serious?) -- really strange atheist links
Even scarier than it sounds.
Atheists for Jesus
Do you ever get the feeling that some people are just...missing the point?
Sea of Faith
Religion without god/s. Priests, pastors, rabbis, etc. from many faiths and denominations included.
(...Don't ask us, man. We're not anywhere near clever enough to think this kind of stuff up.)
Free Thinker's Match Maker
Ah the internet...the place where snide running jokes can become reality.
Watch evolution in action.
The only reliable news source
of our day.
The Institute for Unicorn Research
The official site for the One True Faith.
Killing the Buddha
A spiritual blog for the non-religious, anti-religious or just terminal skeptics. Check it out.
Interfaith Center of New York
"[F]ounded in 1997 as a secular educational organization whose mission is to make New York and the world safe for religious difference by increasing respect, mutual understanding and fellowship among citizens of diverse religious faiths, and by fostering cooperation among religious communities and civic organizations to solve common social problems." Which makes 'em cool in our book, for trying to keep people from hating and/or killing each other.
The Center for Religion & Media at NYU
A joint project between the Religious Studies department and the Center for Media, Culture, and History, the center dedicated to facilitating and improving the study of religion and media in the world, through history up to today. We hope they'll be updating their list of Virtual Casebooks soon
Jesus was Gother-than-Thou
What, was there ever any doubt?
Paper cut-out style dress-up game for hours of fun!
Letters From Earth
The full text of Mark Twain's classic. Shorter than it sounds, and hilarious.
Well, shit. If He's got a LiveJournal, He has to be real, right?
Additions to the harem always welcome.
The Church of the Sub-Genius
Exactly what it says it is.
Quality webcomic for one and all. Plus, contains proof that god is indeed a big hand puppet in the sky.
AAF of Hamilton College
...likes us so much they nicked a bunch of our web content. Crazy, right? So yeah, if they're back reading this: Hi there, Hamilton people! Don't worry, we think you're cool anyway.
NYU Office of Student Activities: All-Square Club Directory
Look for other student groups at NYU, on religion, politics, yo-yos, and more.
Non-AAF-related, but things we suggest you check out anyway.
Billionaires for Bush
Feeling alienated on a campus full of liberals, lefties and generally un-American activities? Don't feel a damn bit sorry for exploiting overseas labor and swindling the gullible American public, just so long as you can get a new yacht out of it? Show your support for the man who makes it all possible--become a Billionaire for Bush.
Nonprofit publisher specializing in literature in translation. You know you want it.
