The Atheist Papers is a collection of essays and social commentary that takes a critical look at the role that religion plays in modern society. It is sometimes satirical but always critical.
Because atheism and religion dwell solely in the realm of philosophy, I must reluctantly add this caveat to my entire blog: Nothing said in the spirit of philosophy can be fact. Neither religious ideas nor secular ideas inhabit any space in reality; they are merely opinions, and this blog takes the position of one of those opinions.
About the author: Rayan Zehn
I’ve been atheist my entire life.
I consider Beirut my home.
I’m a political scientist with a research agenda that examines nuclear policy, Jacksonian sociopolitical belief structures in America, and incredibly risky sociopolitical behavior (revolutions, suicide attacks, coups, self-immolations, etc.). Additionally, I teach political science and play drums in a blues-rock band.
