Interesting post from Alissa Walker on Fast Company:
Atheism, it could be argued, has an identity problem. “Atheism is quite often
mistakenly seen as a cold and distant world, rather than the beautiful,
important, and engaging philosophy that it is,” says Matt Luckhurst, a student in the School
of Visual Arts Designer as Author MFA program.
Even though Atheism’s theory includes a set of rational beliefs that
most non-Atheists wouldn’t disagree with, they often don’t know enough
about it to make a fair judgment on where they stand with it.
For his MFA thesis,
Luckhurst, who is an Atheist, set out to brand Atheism so that its
outward appearance would include the rich history and personal stories
he had come to know as a practitioner. A Web site, Illuminated Atheist,
collects articles, essays and artwork that relate to the philosophy,
uniting its ideals in a thoughtful yet visually intriguing manner.
There are even a series of Atheist T-shirts and posters which Luckhurst
plans to sell.
