What it boils down to is combining atheism with social activism and indeed some level of skepticism. Which makes sense.
Otherwise we turn into broken records. We keep repeating the same tired arguments (Atheism = No God… Repeat) or having to respond to actual encroachments rather than making active changes. Now I understand Jennifer McCreight and Greta have tried to distance Secular Humanism from this but you know what? They are pretty similar except for the fact that atheism plus is a bit more exclusive (You can be a Christian Secular Humanist) and indeed this seems to be Secular Humanism With Atheists.
I am tentatively for it, but it remains to be seen if the individuals involved can actually pull through (considering I am still waiting for the Atheism United thing to set up) rather than it just be another empty statement.
My major interest in the movement is the diversification of atheist culture. It’s not very diverse and we know little about other faiths outside Christianity and Judaism. Islam is rarely represented and Hinduism is all but absent from the discourse (there are ex-hindu atheists out there and quite honestly the only reason I started blogging was because at the time of starting there were no realy equivalents). There are many atheists from non abrahamic backgrounds who are rather poorly represented within atheism.
Let’s see where this goes…
