Axiological Atheist Interviews

I did these interviews as I wanted mainly to hear and give a voice to women and other minorities: race, gender, sexuality, etc. in the atheist community as well as to hear and give a voice to ordinary atheists and their often unheard stories. I feel we all matter but too often not all of us are equally heard from. There are a few video interviews missing as the interviewee asked me to remove them as they got into to many issues for them to no longer feel safe being so open about being an atheist and why we need to be as open as atheists as we speak for more than just us, instead we out atheists are making it easier for all atheists.

Atheists also are more likely to be white (78% are Caucasian vs. 66% for the general public) and highly educated: About four-in-ten atheists (43%) have a college degree, compared with 27% of the general public.” 1 I have done over 50 Atheist video Interviews of women, men, trans woman, trans man, heterosexual, queer, gay, bi, lesbian, pansexual, different races, and different countries, I learned a lot most of all the value of our shared humanity….

Mental health providers who adhere to ethical principles in their work within the world’s many different countries and cultures contribute to a stable society which enhances the quality of life for all human beings.
