About Us

OnlySky is dedicated to protecting America’s secular democracy through reality-based journalism, storytelling, and commentary.

Our growing team of 100+ creators are changing the narrative regarding the nonreligious, and working hard to secure an influential place for secular values in American society. We explore how a natural perspective changes everything, from our place in the universe to the meaning of a single life. 

Our audience is the rapidly-growing population of the religiously unaffiliated in the United States, currently 29% of U.S. adults. In a few years, our audience is expected to surpass every religious denomination in size. OnlySky brings the process of discovering secular life into the open and into a community of others doing the same.

We’ve gathered authors, educators, sociologists, psychologists, philosophers, poets, artists, musicians, comedians, climate scientists, folklorists, physicians, and some of the top secular activists to guide our exploration of a post-religious world.

This isn’t a one-way project where we talk and you listen. We want to build a meaningful community of users exchanging ideas well beyond the comment section, shaping what OnlySky can become, and making the nonreligious a more tangible and influential part of our culture.

We hope you’ll join the conversation.

OnlySky is reader-funded.
