Internet Infidels, Inc. is a Colorado Springs, Colorado-based nonprofit educational organization founded in 1995 by Jeffery Jay Lowder and Brett Lemoine that maintains The Secular Web, an online library of resources pertaining to non-theistic viewpoints, including agnosticism, atheism, freethought, humanism and secularism.[1] The site has been referred to by one of its critics, Christian apologist Gary Habermas, as "one of the Internet's main Web sites for skeptics"[2] and by skeptical physicist Taner Edis as "a major Web site serving nonbelievers"[3]; it has used the slogan "Culture jamming theistic memes since 1995".[4]


Richard Carrier, former editor-in-chief, said "… the mission of the Internet Infidels has always been to defend and promote Metaphysical Naturalism."[5]

The Secular Web[]

The primary website maintained by Internet Infidels Inc. is called the Secular Web. On that site, the Library section includes articles on nontheism, including historical and modern works arguing for nontheism or against a particular religious belief, usually Christianity, but also including Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, and Mormonism. Also included are transcripts of formal debates, such as "God or Blind Nature?"[6]. Materials in the Library are only added after successfully passing a peer-review process.

Another website maintained by Internet Infidels Inc. is the Kiosk, which features shorter and more informal articles than the Library. Articles in the Kiosk also undergo a peer review process.

The organization had also operated a set of discussion forums known as the Internet Infidels Discussion Boards (IIDB), but on October 2008, the bulk of it was spun off as the Freethought and Rationalism Discussion Board.
