Rational Response Squad badgeUS atheist group the Rational Response Squad want to “provide a clear, intuitively moral presence in the philanthropic arena that seeks to influence the public view on atheists. There is a huge misconception that atheists are something like moral anarchists, and they have no desire for good. Something such as volunteering is what people can identify as universally good, and will challenge those who ignorantly assume that all atheists are immoral.”“We constantly hear the ridiculous claim even though we have scientific statistics on our side to prove quite the contrary. Since theists don’t want to embrace the science, maybe they’ll get the message clearer if they can actually see us at work, doing good as atheists, not just as people (which has been our preferred method of charity in the past).” View the atheist volunteers website
