Resources and Links

There's a ton of atheist/skeptical/scientific websites, videos, podcasts, and weblogs on the Internet. This is an on-going compilation of our favorites. These websites display a vast diversity of thought, opinion and approach. Each has their own unique ideas on some of the biggest questions in secularism. Read through, learn what others think, ask questions, discuss, and decide for yourself what you think.

  • Atheist Ethicist - Alonso Fyfe defendes the Ethical Theory desirism. Probably among the most philosophically rigorous systems we've ever encountered
  • Daylight Atheism - Daylight Atheism is an extremely well written and frequently updated blog about skepticism, atheism and secular humanism. Adam Lee tends to write about perceptions of atheism and the way in which it affects the world rather than about philosophy and personal issues with religion, though all are brought up.
  • The Friendly Athiest - Hemant Mehta is a very well-respected blogger who was mentioned in the God Delusion and has spoken at Secular Student events many times. The blog is a great way to keep in touch with what's going on in the secular political world.
  • Pharyngula - The most widely-read science blog on the internet. PZ Meyers is A. awesome and B. an evolutionary biologist and the University of Minnesota. He writes about science, science education, atheism and the role of religion in public life. He also reads xkcd.
  • Science, Reason, and Critical Thinking - Crispian Jago's blog is a "blog in words and pictures." He creates very cool infographics, comics and pictures. For example, this awesomeness.
  • Unreasonable Faith - A cooperative blog with a few contributors, most especially Daniel Florien, an ex-Evangelical Christian. Clever, well-written, with a broad focus on secular issues.
  • Greta Christina's Blog - Greta Christina writes about a great deal of things besides atheism, but she's written some incredible posts, including about justifiable atheist anger, the firebrand/diplomat dichotomy in social movements, comparing the atheist movement to the LGBT movement and advocating for a focus on diversity within the atheist movement.
  • Skepchick - A skeptical blog written by several authors, most of whom are women. It is targeted to the feminist/atheist/skeptical woman, and to those communities at large. They discuss everything from pseudoscience to politics to parenting, and offer engaging, interesting, and often amusing perspectives on current news and topics they find interesting.
YouTube Channels

  • Mister Deity- A YouTube comedy show featuring Mr. Deity (God), Lucy (Lucifer), Jesse (Jesus), Larry (the Holy Spirit?), and a host of other Biblical characters. The actor and director of the show, Brian Dalton, is a former Mormon turned atheist, and has created a honest, sarcastic, and overall hilarious show.
