What? Isn’t that a contradiction? Can you really be an Atheist and a Quaker at the same time? Join with us in an investigation of Quakerism and how the absence of creeds and the experience of Truth guides a religious movement.
From our revised Faith and Practice:
Nontheist Friends: Friends (Quakers) who do not believe in God or in supernatural entities or events in general. This broad term encompasses Friends who might describe themselves as atheists, agnostics, naturalists, or humanists, as well as those who are comfortable using theistic language as a metaphor for some aspects of human experience.
