Who Are We?
The Canadian Atheist blog is collection of atheists from across Canada. Some of us have been involved in the freethought movement longer than we’d like to remember and others are quite new. We range from the East coast to the West coast representing organizations such as the Center for Inquiry, the Freethought Association of Canada and various student groups. A couple of our authors come from very religious backgrounds, others still culturally identify in their religion and others never had to deal with religion at all while growing up.
While we all come from different areas and backgrounds we all have one thing in common – we think the Canadian atheist movement is important. Not all of us are atheists, we may even have a Christian sneaking about, but we all understand the importance of secularism and critical thinking in a modern day society. We have the inside scoop on what goes on…the gossip, the internal politics and all the historical context you would ever need to understand any particular situation that happens in Canada.
