Atheists In Kenya Society (AIK) was born of a deep commitment to promote science, skeptical inquiry and critical thinking. AIK was founded in 2013 by Harrison Mumia, Zack Wanambwa, Elizabeth Gichimu and Ellen Mical. AIK became a legally registered society in February 17th, 2016.
Atheism is the lack of belief in a god or gods. That’s it. Despite common stereotypes, atheists aren’t necessarily anti-religion, nor do they “worship” themselves instead of a god.
Atheists don’t “hate God”—it’s impossible to hate something if you don’t believe it exists. Atheism indicates what someone does not believe, but it says nothing about what someone does believe.
For that, other terms like naturalist, secular humanist, and even Pastafarian connote a rejection of religion while also defining the substance of an individual’s philosophy or worldview.
Atheism and freethought trace their roots to ancient Greek philosophy, with its emphasis on rational inquiry and curiosity about the workings of nature. Other sources included early Chinese Confucianism, ancient Indian materialists, and Roman Stoics, Epicureans, and Skeptics. Submerged during the Dark Ages, freethought re-emerged in the Renaissance.
