Read Atheist Revolution's Most Popular Posts of 2021

2021 was another COVID year

I cannot rule-out the possibility that I might someday look back on 2021 with fond memories. After all, things could get even worse in the not-too-distant future. Climate change isn't going away, and neither is the global COVID-19 pandemic. At least, the pandemic isn't going away anytime soon if hordes of anti-maskers, anti-vaxxers, and Republican governors have anything to say about it. And they seem to have plenty to say about it despite our best efforts. The Republican Party is likely to win big in the 2022 midterm elections, setting the stage for Trump's triumphant return in 2024. So yes, things could get much worse.

Still, I am going to do my best to hold out at least some hope for better things in 2022. We did get some effective vaccines, which is certainly good news for those willing to get vaccinated. And there has been at least some positive news about the continued decline of religion. This trend appears to be continuing, and that is at least one source of optimism.

As we reach the end of 2021, I figured it was time to share the most popular Atheist Revolution posts written during 2021:

  1. Would They Prefer a Christian Child Molester Over a Morally Upstanding Atheist?
  2. The Benefits of Claiming "Atheism" for Atheists Should Not Be Ignored
  3. Atheists: Respecting Religious Beliefs Like a Christian Missionary
  4. Writing Good Titles Is One of the Most Difficult Things About Blogging
  5. What If An Evangelical Fundamentalist Christian Pastor Said Something Stupid?
  6. It is Time to Delete the Atheist Revolution Facebook Page
  7. We Are Free to Opt Out of Oppressive Christmas Traditions
  8. New Age Beliefs Among Atheists: Religion Is Just One of the Hydra's Heads
  9. Stereotypes of Mississippians: Which Ones Have a Kernel of Truth?
  10. Atheists Should Welcome Jesusween Along With Halloween

This list was based on the approach I have been using for some time to identify posts for these "most popular" of the year compilations (i.e., using Google Analytics to identify all posts written during 2021 and sorting them by pageviews). This is far from the only method that could be used, but it is the one I've chosen for the last several years.

As always, I appreciate you being part of Atheist Revolution. Much like 2020, 2021 was a rough year in many ways. It was nice to have this blog as an outlet, and I appreciated your support. Here's hoping 2022 will be better than 2021 for you personally and for secularism in general. We are certainly overdue for a good year!
