What Is Friendly Atheist?

For more than a decade, I've been writing about atheism, religion, and politics at FriendlyAtheist.com, which is on the Patheos network. The site publishes several items every day, hosts a team of excellent contributors, and receives millions of pageviews each month. It has been cited in multiple books and media reports and takes up 98% of my waking life.

What Is This Newsletter?

I write a lot of articles every day, but I recognize that not everyone is able to keep up with the firehose of information that is the news. This newsletter is a way to give you the highlights in a fun, quick, readable format.

This newsletter arrives straight into your email. One a week is free; the rest are behind a paywall. Your support allows me to keep writing posts and offering commentary from an atheist perspective.

Look at this button. Just look at it.
