How will we change the world, so that it becomes rational rather than religious? It is fascinating to think about how the transition will occur. Here are two things to consider:
  • There once was a time in America when no woman could vote. Yet, somehow, even though women could not vote, they all have the right to vote today. How did that happen?

  • There was once a time in America where the large majority of people smoked cigarettes. Smoking was allowed everywhere -- even on airplanes and in public restrooms. Yet today, smoking is banned in most public spaces, including airplanes. How did that happen?

Would you like to help?

Here are four simple things that you can do today:

  • Add links to this web site in forums, blogs and newsgroups. Anywhere you see people discussing religion, add a link to this web site and quote specific sections that you think are relevant.
  • Link to this site in your own profiles, personal pages and blogs.
  • Mention GodIsImaginary often on social media like Facebook, Reddit and Twitter.
  • Email a link to this web site to your friends.
  • Encourage discussion and help others to start thinking rationally about religion.
You would be amazed at how much of an effect discussion and linking can have.

Both processes were remarkable and both mark tectonic shifts in public thinking. How did they happen?

The answer is that those two processes had to start somewhere. There had to come a point where some group of people in the minority said, "this is wrong, and we need to fix it." They began openly talking about the problem. Then other people in the minority agreed. Then, eventually, the minority began to influence those on the outer edges of the majority. Once that process started and gained sufficient momentum, the majority (e.g. smokers) became the minority. And now we all understand that smokers have a problem. Smokers were unfortunate to become dependent on a highly addictive drug as teenagers, at a time when their rational brains were not fully developed. As a society, we now do our best to discourage teens from getting hooked and to help those who are already addicted.

Here is a simple question: Can we have the same sort of effect on religions like Christianity? Can we change Christianity from a "majority" activity into a fringe activity, and in the process replace it with something much, much better?

The idea of unseating something as strong as Christianity sounds ridiculous, doesn't it? But then, when women first started talking about gaining the right to vote, that sounded ridiculous too. We have to start somewhere.

This web site represents a starting point.

The way to change the world is to change people's minds. As more and more people openly discuss the fact that "God" and "Allah" are completely imaginary, the world becomes a better place. The people who believe in "religion" look sillier and sillier. Eventually, religion becomes a fringe activity that is meaningless.

Whenever anyone says "God," we should reply, "God is imaginary."

You would be amazed at how much of an effect discussion and linking can have. If we keep publicly discussing the problems of religion, we will coallesce the minority and then begin changing the majority.
