My name is Jerome Baggett. I'm an Alamedan. I’m also a sociologist and professor at Santa Clara University who is in the early stages of a study of atheists (and other non-religious people) in the United States. Essentially, I’m investigating how atheists think about the world around them and go about the business of living their everyday lives. As you likely know, there are a lot of stereotypes and misconceptions about atheists, whereas I want to get beyond those and listen to what atheists themselves say about their lives. That’s why I’m looking for people to
much. Ultimately, I’m planning to write what I hope (and expect) will be a thoughtful, unbiased book on how people live their lives as atheists in the U.S. that will be published by a reputable press. My hope is this will find a broad readership and begin a more nuanced national conversation about people who identify in more secular terms within contemporary society.
