Are You Good Without God? Then We Want You!
January 18, 2012
A study was released by University of British Columbia researchers in November of last year that found that Atheists were among the most distrusted groups in Society. Regarded as less trustworthy than any religious or racial group, the only category of person that even came close to being as mistrusted was
The study is available at this link here.
As the largest organization in Canada dedicated to the education and
advancement of Humanist and Atheist values, we felt that we needed to do
more to advance the public image of our community.
In response to this study, Centre for Inquiry Canada is creating a public video for our youtube channel Think Again! TV that features local, national and international voices of non-belief stating who they are, what they do and what charitable or generous acts they have done to benefit society. This could be charitable donations that you make, volunteer work that you do or a short personal story. We want stories that show the general public that non-believers can be and are good without God.
If you are interested in helping with this project, we would be glad to feature you on our video.
Please keep the videos short (less than 1 minute) and keep the format as the following:
1. State your name and where you are from
2. State your occupation
3. What you do for charities, non-profits or society?
4. End with the statement “that is why I am good without god”
Please understand that not all videos can be accepted and even
those that are accepted may not be used in full. For those in Toronto, if you don’t have
access to a webcam you’re welcome to come by our office on the weekend
of January 28th and 29th between 11am and 5 pm and we’ll film your statement.
We will be encouraging our branches to setup filming opportunities at our other locations.
Please note that you will be required to sign a release form
acknowledging your consent for the use of your image.
Thank you, and please distribute widely! We want as many voices as possible!
