National Atheist Party News.
Well this is awkward.

Earlier today we had a new member sign up. With the express purpose of advertising things about the National Atheist Party. I hate that shit. Not the party, that I just find pointless. But joining a site just to advertise. Normally I would just delete account and erase all knowledge of their existence.

Here is where the problem lies. I don't want to stop information from flowing in, but I really hate an agenda. Also forum rules specify no ad bots. Whether someone is human or not does not decide whether they are an adbot, to me an adbot is something who's express purpose is advertising.

However this information is both interesting and relevant.

So this is what I am doing for now. I will tell you and pretend I am a wizard. You will praise my wizarding abilities and we will comment on the information provided.

1." The National Atheist Party is launching its own Podcast hosted by Co-Host of A-News and PR and Marketing committee Chair Lee Moore. Keep updated on the campaigns and important NAP issues while getting to know our members and leaders." - Catey. Condon

2. "Rick Santorum recently accused Obama of being a snob for encouraging the youth of America to aim for a college degree. Education is one of the most important areas we can invest in as a society and yet our graduation rates are dropping. Proper investment in Education can lead to an increase in social mobility, a decrease in prejudice, and an increase in industry specialization which we are lacking when compared to other nations.
The National Atheist Party, in a push to encourage the expansion of knowledge and the principles of secular humanism, has created two distinct scholarships: Our Secular Future Scholarship and the Science Steps Forward Scholarship.dents Four awards of $1,000 will be available, one award to a college and and one to high school student for both scholarships. Education should be a high priority for the youth of America. The National Atheist party wants to show its support for those who have aimed their sights on higher education and have been recognized for upholding secular values
The National Atheist Party wants to show its support for education and secular values. Since the National Atheist Party is currently a non-profit organization, it is important to constantly remain invested in the community. The scholarships are all funded from donations and fundraising campaigns. The National Atheist Party is working hard to create a better, brighter future, not just for ourselves but also for posterity. The importance of investing in the enlightenment and encouragement of future generations is becoming more and more evident as an increasing number of young students take an active role in their community, stand up for and spread awareness of secular values and the importance of education.

So discuss. And I will deal with this somehow.

My first glance at the title made me think of Germany's National Socialist Party, but then I realized the acronym here is just N.A.P. Sleepy

RE: National Atheist Party News.
I think you should give them (and any other atheist organization who asks can post there then too) their own forum here. That way their posts are contained, you can label it so everyone knows they are ad postings, and we can benefit from the info.

To us, it'll be like a news section we can take or leave.

Just suggesting....

I think it could be fun Smile We could append sarcastic comments to their adverts. Might be a bit of a pita for DeepThought to organize though?

RE: National Atheist Party News.
How is it pointless? I dont actually know what they stand for, but I do know that the view of the atheist and other non-religous are simply completely ignored in the US.

Lobbying is how things get done in this backwater country. If you are not a special interest, then they have no interest.

Maybe pointless was the wrong word.

Misguided? Confusing? Not my idea of a good time?

I don't feel like debating the national atheist party to be honest. It's been done an im not even an American. I'll leave the pseudo politics to the Americans.

RE: National Atheist Party News.
What I dont get is how people belong to a corporation like religion...... and then turn into atheists and then have to join yet another corporation???

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

RE: National Atheist Party News.
I support NAP. I like the idea that atheists have a goto for issues in the corrupted system that we have here. Sitting around a camp fire and singing or tree hugging will get nothing done in the US or the world for that matter.

Keeping realism alive, one honest offensive comment at a time!

I could go for a NAP.
