Help America Evolve
Don't Believe in God?

With all the endless God talk from preachers and politicians you might think you're the only nonreligious person in America.

Not true! Tens of millions of your fellow Americans are not religious. In fact, the number of secular Americans has doubled over the past ten years while the number of religious Americans has actually dropped. Nonreligious Americans now outnumber Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Lutherans, Presbyterians, Episcopalians, Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons combined.

Together we can help America evolve into a more rational, less superstitious society. FreeThoughtAction gives you a way to combine your voice with others who reject supernatural explanations of human life and our origins. We're using traditional marketing and the internet to encourage secular Americans to speak up and to persuade those sitting on the fence that it's a great time to GetReal.

We hope you'll join us to promote eyes-wide-open facts, not blind faith, as the foundation of our society.

Here's how you can help:

10 Things You Can Do

Speak Up

Come out, come out wherever you are! Let your family, friends, colleagues, and community know you are a proud freethinker (or whichever term - atheist, agnostic, humanist, bright, etc. - works for you). Just letting others see a real, live freethinker like you helps make people more comfortable and shows them that leaving superstition behind is a viable option.

Stand Up

Stand up loudly and proudly for your reality-based life! Contact the media and public officials when you feel they haven't given your views the consideration they deserve. Be nice, but don't be shy. Unless we say "ouch" when our toes get stepped on we can expect nothing but sore toes.

Ante Up

Help us bring the "You are not alone" message to freethinkers across the country. Every penny of web-donated dollars goes toward putting up billboards or placing print or web ads. FreeThoughtAction is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization so donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. Click HERE to donate to our media fund.

Dress Up

T-shirts, hats, buttons and bumper stickers allow you to become a walking - or driving - billboard. All profits go toward placing more media, so you get double bang for your buck. Go to our online store HERE.

Act Up

We are building a section of resources for activists. It will include billboard, poster, and public display art and designs, flyers and pamphlets that can be distributed, ideas for events and demonstrations, banner ads and buttons that may be used on your site, as well as other promotional and educational materials that we hope you may find useful. This section is in its early stages and we welcome your input and ideas to help it grow. To see what we have so far, click HERE.
