Have Your Say

We want to hear from you. If you have a blog about atheism or skepticism, let us know and we may feature it. Even if you normally blog about knitting or celebrity pets but for some reason feel like posting something atheistic, tell us so we can share it with an appreciative audience. If you’ve been emailing PZ Myers with your “Why I am an atheist” story and haven’t got a response, send it on to us instead and we can post it on our website. Or if you think you can speak to a bunch of – mostly friendly – atheists about a relevant topic in an entertaining and informative way, we’d be glad to give you the chance. Just send us an e-mail and soon you could be very slightly famous.

That’s all for this week. Till next time.
