Positive Atheism (since 1995) Join the Struggle Against Anti-Atheist Bigotry!
Cliff Walker is a lifelong social activist and has worked exclusively on issues pertaining atheist dignity and atheist rights since September, 1988, when he served 24 days in jail for having refused a court order to undergo religious instruction in a sequestered faith-based rehabilitation program.
Dedicated to the discussion of atheistic philosophy, ethics, and history, Positive Atheism, as she currently exists, was established on October 4, 1998, but the magazine dates back to August, 1995, with the web site following shortly thereafter. Upon her independence in November, 1998, Positive Atheism quickly began to emphasize a struggle against antiatheist bigotry, currently seeking to discover ways in which atheists might behave that would serve to reduce or eliminate both the instances and the effects of this bigotry. Forced to slow down due to severe illness in 2002, we began rethinking the very definition of the words atheism and atheist, with an eye toward reducing the individual atheist's stigma within society, starting at home in the United States and spanning to wherever else this beast may rear its ugly head.
Positive Atheism is not the Critical Thinker renamed, but a new work. References to the Critical Thinker are inevitable because it contained much of Cliff's work. Back-issues of any publications edited by Cliff are always available through him.
