The Out Campaign – I am All For It Tuesday, July 31, 2007

Posted by henry000 in atheism, OUT campaign, PZ Myers, Richard Dawkins.

There is a new atheist meme on the block, and this time we have the OUT Campaign designed to make the atheists come out and make themselves known!

It is created by the atheism vanguard Richard Dawkins Foundation for us atheists to basically come out. This makes a good sense, and I think it is a good move in the current overall atheism movment, riding on the successes of a string of atheism books. So I am all for it. You will note that I have put the big A on the side of this blog too.

The only complain I have is that the big red letter A looks rather boring and as the Friendly Atheist has pointed out, how would the Average Joe know what it means – which kind of defeats the purpose. And I believe there are better and more creative designs out there. What is the rationale behind the design of the big A? How is the campaign going to be implemented? Is this part of the so-called New Atheism Movement? What is next in the big scheme of things?

OK, perhaps I shall stop being so hard-to-please and critical (just like your damn typical atheist mentality…) 🙂


Here is the code for the big A if you like it:

<div style=”text-align:center”><a href=”http://outcampaign.org/”><img src=”http://pharyngula.org/images/scarlet_A.png&#8221; border=”0″ alt=”image” width=”143″ height=”122″ /></a></div>

I shamelessly stole the big A image from PZ, and copied the idea of Shalini of having the big A on the side of the blog.
