My name is Ellen Johnson. I am President of American Atheists, and want to welcome
you on behalf of our organization to our new site on the World Wide Web. This
site is just one of the many outreach activities operated by our organization.
Before you head for the Visitor's Center or other
parts of our web site, let me tell you a little bit about my background. I have

We encourage you to make visits to our web site a part of your Atheist lifestyle.
We also urge you to share Atheism with friends and family. We need to be activists
for Atheism! By making your Atheism known to others, you will be surprised how

We hope that you find the American Atheist web pages to be challenging and informative.
Remember that this site is under "permanent construction." We will be adding new
features and offerings in the future. Enjoy!
President, AMERICAN ATHEISTS
