Atheist Multiverse on Google Plus



So you've wondered on Google+ and you happen to be interested in the atheism? Brace yourself because the Google+ Multiverse is coming...



Atheists are probably the most diverse group out there that is somehow connected with widely understood religion. We happen to share one conclusion - that the present evidence is not sufficient to warrant a belief in a (personal/) deity. Everything other might be different - and in fact - usually is.

We come from all sorts of backgrounds, we have all sorts of different personal stories, we happen to be concerned about all sorts of various cases. Religion infiltrates all segments of life. Due to that atheism is forced to deal with all sorts of outcomes of how religion plays out in a real world.

It is therefore no surprise that Google Plus offers a multitude of different atheist communities, one of which should satisfy even the most sublime tastes.


This is an attempt to summarize and present the Google+ Atheist Sphereverse - a collection of platforms of atheistic thought exchange. Please enjoy and we hope you'll find something to suit your needs and/or desires.


There are public communities that are strictly atheistic in that they don't allow any religious proselytizing/debates, there are public communities that encourage you to engage in a debate.

There are communities devoted to funny images, music, games, etc - all looking at their respective field of interest through the lens of godlessness. There are local communities concerning one city or university, there are also global ones.

There are communities for various demographics - genderqueer atheists, teens, black atheists, ex-muslims, etc.

There are communities that are private and you need to ask them to let you in, there are some that are freely available.

There are strictly atheistic ones as well as free-thought, humanist, agnostic ones, etc.

In this Sphereverse there surely is an atheistic group that will share your interest and, conversely, there is one that will oppose your opinions and beliefs about various things. The one thing they all have in common - they lack belief in a god.

In this list we also present the one that is openly anty-atheistic. You might want to get to know arguments of the other side (as if you didn't know that already)...

Please enjoy this list and share it.
And if you happen to participate in a circle that is not present here - please drop us a note and we'll add it ASAP.

Enjoy.



A non-prophet community

Join us to discuss topics related to atheism and religion. Our community is meant to offer support to community members, share educational resources, and to discuss issues pertaining to the impact of belief and religion on society.
.
Before posting, please have a look at the rules linked below.

 (If you're mobile you may not find the link below. In that case you should be able to find a recent repost of the rules in the Mods > Announcements category.)







 Atheism

There are no Gods.
Place to share anything and everything about Atheism. This community will be moderated lightly and it is public. If you need privacy try our private community. Posts by pages will be limited there.








Where faith is not a virtue.


This is a community for everyone that lacks the belief in a deity. If you do not consider yourself a theist (if you do not believe in God or god) - consider yourself invited regardless of whether you consider yourself and adherent to humanism, rationalism secularism, scepticism, naturalism, pragmatism, free-thought, etc. We love to debate, we hate proselytizing.




Atheism Humour & Memes


Because religion smells funny!








 
Imagery, Cartoons, Graphics and Symbols dedicated to Atheism 
 A place for atheists to share and find imagery, art, comics, symbols and quotes related to atheism. Feel free to contribute, comment and invite others




A plus to be divided?

As a member of many "Atheist" communities I must confess I have not discovered one that quite "fits".

With that in mind, this is an attempt to create one that I would like to have found :0

{It is something I will try to update soon}

It will be a place for the Godless who might be able to lounge under the umbrella terms of:-

*Free Thinking,
"Open minded" yet *skeptical*
*Politically unbound
*In support of equality for *all*
*In support of a worldwide educated democracy

There will be NO banning or moderation of free enquiry








Being atheist can be lonely, especially in high school. This community is designed to allow teens to get support from one another.
High school is hard enough without being an atheist in a highly religious world. Once people find out you're an atheist, they look at you differently and ask you a lot of stupid questions. They treat you differently. I come from a very small town where I may well have been the only atheist. So I have had this exact experience. It is lonely to be an atheist most of the time. I was not bullied, but I know that many kids are simply because they don't believe in God. You can even lose friends once they find out you're atheist.

 This community is meant to be a place where atheist teens can seek help or guidance from others who have been through the same thing. I'm 21 years old now, but my experiences in high school left me wanting to be able to reach out to those who are still in that situation. This is not a place to talk badly about religion or religious people. There are other communities for that. Please only use this page to share your stories and give and get help.

 I will also get a blog up and running on the topic soon. Keep an eye out!





A Place for all the ex-muslims atheists
There are many great atheism groups out there. However, muslims with the islamic background do not have a lot publicityin those groups. Majority of arguments and discussions are about Christianity.

 In this group we try to promote atheism and we try to talk about our experiences in living under islamic rules, teachings and culture.

We may also try to refute general islamic arguments as well as making a solid data base of counter islamic arguments.

Asian Atheists

This is about Atheism in Asia 







Where we collide with religion, the points of impact are with specific religious beliefs—not religion in general; there's no such thing.

This community is not just about irreligion. Here we push for a positive worldview. We will discuss secular ethics. We will discuss the separation of church and state. We will discuss evolution and anthropology. We will discuss climate change and the dangers of the religious opposition to the truth of it.

(This community gets its name from Sam Harris's talk "The Problem with Atheism.")

Thank you and enjoy debating!








Rejecting the gods of State and Religion

I have run into serious problems with christian libertarians and statist atheists. I wanted to offer a place for people reject both the gods of religion and of state. Welcome.







If more people knew more about us, the world would be a better place. Were public so as to open the door for the religious world to peek in.
Their will be very little moderation in this group, so it is expected that the members wouldn't say something in haste here that they wouldn't say in a public setting with people face to face. If anything guides you in your postings here, let it be this question; will this posting help make the world a better place? Malicious people may make their way into the group. If they can't be brought to civility, they will be removed.






We are minority within a minority...
Before you leave some idiot comment about God, Hell, free will, original sin, etc; before you attempt to rescue us, warn us, threaten us or pity us, please remember that this page doesn’t exist for you. We’ve heard it before. We probably know your bible better than you do. And we’ve chosen reason over superstition.

So don’t waste your time, and don’t waste ours. Have a nice life.

Australian Atheists

Tagline
Atheism is the acceptance that there is no credible scientific or factually reliable evidence for the existence of a god, gods or the supernatural.
Introduction
THE ATHEIST FOUNDATION OF AUSTRALIA INC began in South Australia in 1970 when the members of the Rationalist Association of SA decided that a name change would proclaim their basic philosophy, which began in Greece 2500 years ago.

We can understand why primitive cultures believed that invisible beings controlled what we now call the elements and natural phenomena. With access to factual knowledge, there is now no excuse for believing in gods, fairies or any supernatural concept.

We live in a natural universe with known natural laws. Religion, based on belief in the existence of the supernatural, is dependent on the indoctrination of infants generation after generation, by parents brainwashed in religious cultures.

The confrontations and fighting today provide ample evidence of the unstable nature of societies, which endorse religious beliefs.

Infantile concepts seriously hinder the full potential development of humans in a world with problems that require logical thought.

Atheists find their motive for action in the needs and problems of their fellow citizens and consider that the worship of, or reliance on, imaginary supernatural beings to be a useless waste of time, energy and resources.

The Foundation is dependent on a small committee which meets monthly and is open to all members. We maintain a cordial relationship with similar organisations within Australia and overseas and with whom we exchange our magazine, The Australian Atheist.

It is recognised that the non-religious segment in society is on a steep increase but only through such organisations as the Foundation will it be recognised as a movement worthy of notice by administrative bodies.

We welcome feedback from thoughtful people and invite your co-operation and membership.

Atheist Music 

This is a list of atheists in music. Atheism is, in a broad sense, the rejection of belief in the existence of deities. In a narrower sense, atheism is specifically the position that there are no deities. Most inclusively, atheism is simply the absence of belief that any deities exist. Living persons in this list are people whose atheism is relevant to their notable activities or public life, and who have publicly identified themselves as atheists.

A place for atheists to hang out with like minded people and discuss religion, science, art, literature, entertainment, or anything that intrigues you.







Raise the alarm, stem the tide of aggressive ignorance.
This is a narrow-focus community. The main purpose is to be an alarm central for alerting other anti-apologists to an outbreak. If desirable more functions can be added later.

We are a very diverse group, here. It would be easy to find differences, and while one might be tempted to dig at these, that's not the point, here. The point is to find allies, find people whose interdiction style fits yours, or whose preferred interdiction targets match yours. We have a common cause, to engage and contain the demagogues and propagandists that would use professional fallacies to sway the unwary.

SECTION SPECIFIC GUIDELINES: Tag Team Request is for apologists deemed to require a controlled response. The person calling for controlled assistance (hereafter the FR - First Responder), has a strategy for dealing with the insurgent, so the Tag Team should observe the FR's posts before engaging. +1 behavior: Put a +1 on the FR's Tag Team Request to show you are in. Remove the +1 when/if you need to tag yourself out. This lets other AAL members see whether a request is being handled or not.

Good hunting!

A Google+ Community For FFRF News And Information
To promote and defend the constitutional principle of the separation between church and state and educate the public on matters relating to nontheism. Introduction Mission

To promote and defend the constitutional principle of the separation between church and state and educate the public on matters relating to nontheism.

Company Overview

Welcome to the official FFRF Google Plus Fan Page!

 The nonprofit Freedom From Religion Foundation is the largest freethought association (atheists and agnostics) in North America. FFRF works to educate the public on matters relating to nontheism, and to promote the constitutional principle of separation between church and state.

Since 1978, FFRF has acted on countless violations of the separation of state and church, and has taken and won many significant complaints and important lawsuits to end state/church entanglements and challenge the “faith-based initiative.”

Description

The purpose of FFRF's Google Plus Fan Page is to provide a safe and productive space for discussion, as well as information pertaining to nontheism and/or the separation between church and state.

Participants are expected to abide by the posting guidelines listed below under 'General Information.'

If you have a concern that has not been addressed through Facebook, please email the admins at ffrfideas@gmail.com.

Community for Agnostic thinkers. Not all non-church-goers are Atheists.


















Atheism for Theists
This Community is for atheists and theists alike. Saying that, this is a place for debate and discussion between the opposing positions and I hope to see an increase in discussion through time.

I (RANTING ATHEIST - link below) will be posting on here and I would love it if you were to join in with my thoughts and even follow my Page, if you're feeling generous.













Blowing Through the Smoke to Discover Truth
This community exists in order to facilitate LIVE (emphasis on live) debates and discussions usually on Google Plus Hangouts but conceivably on TinyChat or Skype as well. It is centered on one of the most prolific, overarching, and controversial topics of human history, the existence or non-existence of a theistic God but is not limited to that subject.

The Bait page is set up for light banter between theists and atheists, good natured ribbings to spark antagonism among members and whip up disagreements which -if all goes to plan- should lead to some decent debates. I believe the other pages are self-explanatory.

 Live debates/discussions are to be civil, intellectually honest, and charitable to your opponent(s). This does not mean opponents need to be overtly kind, apologize for offense, or avoid offense. Respect of other's ideas is not required, but respect for their right to express their beliefs and ideas is certainly required. I am working on selecting moderators for the Community that would serve as fair debate moderators if you care to have a formalized debate, though you can use any moderator for a live debate, or no moderator.

The only necessary qualification to join and remain in the community is to be fair, charitable, honest, and value the efficacy of live debate over textual online comment squabbling. This means that if it comes to the attention to the moderators and is decided by a simple majority vote by said mods that you have violated these conditions, you may be warned or removed from the community without warning depending on the severity of the violation.

Questions, comments about the rules and direction of the community? Thats what the Community Guidelines: Gripes and Suggestions page is for. 









Faith Atheism Center


Aided by recent bestsellers written by C Hitchens and R Dawkins atheism is seeing a rise and rise. Parallel to that we see community of atheists in Google+. We also see communities dedicated to several religions here. 
Cherishing pluralism and post modernism, we, however, see beauty in the world with many views - like different type of flowers. We therefore give importance to both atheism as well as theism. And in the latter, we welcome discussion about Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Hinduism - the four major religions. We also welcome other faith groups like Wiccan, Scientology etc 
We invite atheists, people with different faiths and those who believe in what we believe in - a pluralistic beautiful world that believes in the accommodation of many views - to join the group and present their cases. It is free for now. invite people to discuss







Atheist V. Theist

Intellectual discussion












No question is dumb when it comes to doing what's right
My vision for this community is to foster an environment that is interesting for people of all walks of life; so a deep understanding of philosophy is not needed. You can use this community to talk about current events that beg for ethical scrutiny, or small, everyday choices that can be difficult to work through. The choice is yours; just leave your preconceptions at the door.

Basic Rules:

1.) No Baseless Ridicule - This means, if you don't have a good reason to reject someone else's ethical position, don't waste everyone's time to berate their opinion.

2.) No Religion - There is a debates community specifically for this type of fun. It's okay to talk about the decisions made by religious people, and the ethical concerns that follow, but discussion about any single religion or lack thereof is strictly off limits. (e.g. Displaying the 10 commandments in a government building is unethical - this is okay to discuss. Pastafarianism is an unethical practice - this is NOT okay.)

3.) No Monologuing - Please, PLEASE, don't monologue in other’s posts. This is not a place to "hear yourself talk" or to practice delivery of your PhD dissertation. There's no limit for posts of your own, but responses should be limited to 1600 characters (with spaces and line-breaks) or less. This is about half a page with 12pt font in a Word document. You can provide a link to a blog or other site if it exceeds the limit. If you can't do a character-count, use this section as a guideline. If your response exceeds the size of this exactly 1600 character-long community description, it is likely too long.


Diren Gezi Parki





What's happening in Turkey?
Millions of Turkish citizens have been outraged by the violent reaction of their government to a peaceful protest aimed at saving Istanbul's Gezi Park. Outraged, yet not surprised.

Over the course of Prime Minister Erdoğan's ten-year term, we have witnessed a steady erosion of our rights and freedoms. Arrests of numerous journalists, artists, elected officials, high ranking soldiers; restrictions on freedom of speech, women's rights, and even alcohol sales have all demonstrated that the ruling party is not serious about democracy. Time and again, the Prime Minister has mocked and trivialized his nation's concerns while Turkey's own media has remained shamefully silent.

The People protesting bravely throughout Turkey are the proud inheritors of Atatürk's legacy. We are not looters or extremists. We are students, teachers, workers, mothers, fathers. We represent various ethnicities and creeds, religions and ideologies.

We stand united now because of our concern for Turkey's future.
We demand and end to police brutality.
We demand a free and unbiased media.
We demand an open dialogue, not the dictate of an autocrat.



And there are also openly anti-atheist communities:




Anti Atheism


Atheists, they are the lesser minds. They're overconfident about science. For them, the world is a laboratory. Their heads digest only scientific facts and a pity that they are proud of it like peacocks. They're ignorant to the fact that science is too contemporary. They're ignorant about the limits of humans, a puny little hydrocarbon form life. They believe that their heads, which's not bigger than a little coconut, is all powerful, all mighty, all knowing, all intelligent, all everything. They think human imagination is infinite. They're just too confident about their brains. They're blind to their limitations. They don't take anything for granted. They verify everything with their little heads. Pity that they're still proud of it. They taunt and taunt the believers their whole life.

I made this page because I was banned from that atheist page and what really frustrated me is that I didn't complete my even though, that really showed how Coward they are ;) ............................











The list is probably far from complete, so if you feel like we're missing some important community - drop us a message.
