In 2014, as it was in 2013 “atheism was more studied, and better understood, than ever before.” We’ve seen an explosion of media: Podcasts, Web Shows, Blogs, Social Media Groups and Pages, Memes… The World’s first and only TV channel dedicated exclusively to superstition-free programming. “Woo-Free TV” and Atheist TV.
Richard Dawkins Tweets, Neil deGrasse Tyson Tweets, “Cosmos”, and Dawkins again with Lawrence Krauss “The Unbelievers”. Moving to the the exact opposite, Kirk Cameron’s “Saving Christmas” auspiciously rated Worst Movie on IMDB.
We had 2 major Atheist Books hit the Best Selling List: Barbara’s “Living With a Wild God”, She was Humanist of the Year 98’, still going strong, and Sam Harris’s “Waking Up”. Sam Harris even teamed up with Bill Maher against Ben Affleck for mainstream debate.
Speaking of debates… Sean Carroll and William Lane Craig on the Kalam Cosmological Argument or the more publicized Bill Nye and Ken Hamm Debate?… Popular Christian Website, “Christianity Today” held a poll after the debate: 92% said Bill Nye was more convincing. A debate that needs no poll, Matt Dillahunty vs Sye Ten Bruggencate, in Memphis, TN, organized by significant contributor to the Atheist Community Sarah Morehead, was a critical success.
Major players Matt Dillahunty went into full time atheist activism, along with Aron Ra and Hemant Mehta.
You may remember Ryan Bell, The Former Pastor Who Tried the ‘Year Without God’ Experiment, he now calls himself an atheist.
2014 was a fantastic year for atheist philanthropy, Dogma Debate with a 24 hour broadcastathon, raised 31,000 for Foundation Beyond Belief… and thats nothing compared to 50,000 hours atheist donated to Foundation Beyond Belief’s 100+ teams, in 2014 alone. Then theres “Grillin’ With Atheists”, my personal favorite.
What a year we’ve had. So much to be proud of, to be part of.
Knowledge frees humans, but action, strategy, and teamwork frees humanity.
