The Atheist Community of Austin believes that knowledge and understanding are two
of the most important tools we can use to combat the rising tide of fundamentalism
that is threatening to engulf the country. One way in which we help people to learn
about and understand atheism and religion is to make available a library of books,
video tapes, online articles and more on these and other topics of interests.
Here, we've collected links to web pages that are of interest to atheists. We
invite suggestions for additional links.
We have assembled a number of articles on various topics, including some written by our members.

Have you ever wanted to have a celebration but didn't have a reason? We're assembling a calendar which
marks important secular occasions that deserve recognition. It also includes darker, more negative events
in the history of religion, for those times people need to be reminded of the evil of dogma.
This is a brand new project, so the calendar is still mostly empty. If you have
any good dates to add, please send them to the web master.
