    Hello,

    I am a Philosophy and Religion instructor at Harper College in Palatine and College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn. I am currently teaching two World Religions courses, and in an effort to more accurately communicate the beliefs of each religion to my students, I have been asking various organizations (churches, temples, etc.) from each religion if they would be willing to answer a few questions. Of course, atheism isn’t a religion, but I since there are approximately one billion people (about 16% of the world) who are atheist or non-religious, I have included it in my course as a “religious group”. So I am looking to see if I can get any atheist organizations to answer my questions. That is why I am writing you.

    If you are willing to answer them, any answer will be helpful and appreciated, with as much detail as you have the time and willingness to give. I’ll share the information with my students, as well as mention to them that someone from your organization was generous enough to take the time to offer these answers – unless you would prefer to remain anonymous, of course.

    So if someone from your organization is willing, here are the questions:

    1) Among atheists (as a broad and diverse group of people, of course), what is usually of most frequently deemed or held to be most sacred?

    2) What is the essence of what someone would need to do, or generally does do, in order to live their life in accord with the most common beliefs held by atheists?

    3) What argument, reasons, or evidence is usually offered to support that your answers to numbers 1 and 2 above are actually true? (By which I don’t mean what evidence is there that your answers are statistically accurate. I mean what justification is there that the beliefs about what is sacred and moral are true. For example, when I sent a similar question to Christian organizations, I was asking what arguments, etc. they had that think God/Jesus, as most sacred, actually exists.)

    4) What do atheists around the world generally believe about how to deal with someone who holds different religious views, such as Muslims, Hindus, or Scientologists?

    Again, any amount of help will be much appreciated.

    Sincerely,
    Allen Costell
