About Us

ECHOES OF COMMONSENSE is a dedicated blog site to the cause of reason in the society. Our commitment is to discourage outrageous indulgence in core dogma, which is an appalling malady that continues to plague our modern society, even in the face of obvious scientific feat that renders religion and its practice obsolete in our New Age. The aim of this blog site is purely to encourage advancement of rationalism, critical thinking, and science, as these essentially remain the finest and the most efficient tools we have at our disposals for discerning the realities of our natural world. We aim to publish the works of astute thinkers who appreciate the essence of humanistic values in our modern civilization, and bring scintillating interviews of prominent authors to enrich your knowledge and rational growth. Welcome aboard the Echoes of CommonSense.

    Hi. Greta Christina here, from Greta Christina’s Blog. I’ve just compiled a list of prominent atheists of color — as well as atheist organizations predominantly focused on/ participated in by people of color. It’s on my blog here:

    Atheists of Color – A List
    http://gretachristina.typepad.com/greta_christinas_weblog/2011/03/atheists-of-color.html

    If you can help publicize this list in any way you can — on your blog, your Facebook page, your Twitter feed, your email list, whatever — I think it might make a big difference to our movement. And if you’re in touch with other movers and shakers in the movement (conference organizers, organization leaders, bloggers, etc.) who you think would or should be interested in this information, can you please let them know about it as well?

    There’s a common perception in our community that there just aren’t that many non-white people in it. I think getting more people (especially more movement leaders) familiar with this list, and other lists like it, could go a long way to helping diversify our movement and making it more welcoming to a wider range of people. And if we can publicize the existence of organizations specifically (or largely) devoted to supporting atheists of color, I think it could go a long way to making people of color who are on the fence about religion — as well as people of color who are already non-believers but aren’t out about it — feel more welcomed and included in the godless community.

    Also, if you see any errors in the list, or any names/ organizations that should be on it and aren’t, I’d very much appreciate hearing about it. And if you’re on this list yourself and don’t want to be — or if you’re happy to be but need your information corrected — please let me know. Thanks!

    P.S. In case you’re not already familiar with it, Jen McCreight has compiled a similar list of female atheists:

    Hi:
    I am the author of Moral Combat: Black Atheists, Gender Politics, and the Values Wars. A new book on contemporary politics, atheism and humanism from a black feminist perspective. Would you be interested in reviewing the book or doing an interview?
