What Is An ATHEIST?

“ANOTHER THINKING HUMAN ENGAGED IN SEEKING TRUTH”
(Edwin Kagin, 2008)

To Unidentified Recipients:

The 2009 American Atheists Convention in Atlanta was a screaming success. Hopefully, there will soon be on the Internet a video of the completely outrageous Mass Blasphemy, Dance of the Vestal Vegans, and Mass DeBaptism. There are already a fair number of photos here and there on Facebook and other repositories of cultural knowledge.

Speaking of blasphemy, by some coincidence of fate, a second printing of that universally banned work, “Baubles of Blasphemy,” by Edwin F. Kagin, has been released by American Atheists Press to a stunned world. A copy is now (should be—this is not a precise science) available from www.atheists.org or perhaps even www.amazon.com , where prices for a copy of the first edition run from $8.75 to $95.00. No, I have no idea why.

Edwin.
