A subreddit dedicated to insightful posts and thoughtful, balanced discussion about atheism specifically and related topics concerning irreligion and religion generally.

About the subreddit name: TrueAtheism as a title stems from a naming convention on Reddit, where "True" is used as a prefix to indicate higher quality. It does not reference "truth" in general.

Please read posts in their entirety before voting or commenting. Follow reddiquette.


1. Submissions must be reasonably sized and well thought out

  • Posts under 200 characters will be removed by the AutoModerator, and you will be asked to expand the post.
  • Add content by providing points for discussion: Ask questions, include your own insight or opinion, request people's thoughts.
  • Requesting advice is acceptable provided you give full context.
  • In the case of meta posts, tag them with [META] before your title, and remember to provide constructive points for discussion.

2. Links alone are not enough

  • You may link to articles, external sites and reddit posts provided you follow rule 1 above. Outline points of discussion and relevancy in your submission. Quoting is useful but is not enough alone.
  • Promotion of websites, charities or content is allowed, but contact the mods in advance. If you are promoting something with many different topics, provide an overview and make an effort to contribute yourself. You may not solely promote your own content.


3. All posts must be respectful towards others

  • Do not attack people for their opinion or their group.
  • Groups may be criticised, but only in a relevant context. Avoid broad generalizations.
  • Be balanced, avoid bias, remain calm, and respect alternative points of view.

4. No low-effort or low-quality posts

  • No single-word replies, no posts containing only images, no irrelevant or unnecessary posts, and no ranting or polemic posts.
  • No bots allowed either.

5. We are not an echo-chamber

  • Posts here should not simply validate already well-held beliefs.
  • Don't let others decide your own opinion. If you're not certain of your views, let others give you advice, not decide for you.
  • Keep an open mind. This subreddit is for thoughtful and informed discussion, not for boosting your ego.
  • This is not a sub for posting complaints about other subs.


Moderators reserve the right to remove content they deem unfit.

  • Minor offenses are subject to removal and warning, followed by a quarantine ban on second offense.
  • Major offenses are an instant quarantine ban, followed by a lifetime ban on repeat offense.

Please use the report button to alert moderators of rule violations. If you need assistance or have questions, message the moderators.
