A few days ago, I mentioned that Trevor Boeckmann (of the University of Northern Iowa Freethinkers and Inquirers — UNIFI) wasn’t thrilled with A Week because it was confusing to those outside our movement (and even many in the movement).
The point is to be open about your atheism, so why not show your face along with your message?
No one outside of our movement knows what the “A” means. Yes, some people will look up what’s going on. Most won’t.
Want to actually help help with the movement? Grab a sheet of paper, write that you’re an atheist, and make that your profile picture… A symbol is nice. A face is better.
Well, Trevor has been collecting the pictures in a Picasa album and there’s already 50 pictures (and counting)! Some of the recent additions are just fantastic:
This next one’s not in the gallery yet, but a special shout-out goes to Grant Sutherland who, with the help of his friend Michael Davis, wrote his own book on the subject (a la Stephen Colbert) 🙂
If you’d like to submit your own picture to the gallery, you can send the image (or link) to Trevor here.
