Internet Infidels, owns and operates the website the Secular Web. Internet Infidels, Inc. is based in Colorado Springs, Colorado and is a nonprofit organization founded in 1995 A.D. by Jeffery Jay Lowder and Brett Lemoine. The Secular Web is a website which promotes atheism, agnosticism, and skepticism on the internet. Its stated aim is to promote Metaphysical Naturalism.[1]

Christian apologist JP Holding has written concerning the Secular Web: "The Secular Web has a few intelligent people, but overall has long been a haven for every skeptical know-it-all to pronounce judgments upon matters outside of their expertise."[2] In addition, Holding has indicated that the quality of internet content produced by the Secular Web has gone down since the 1990s.[3] The decline in the quality of material at Internet Infidels has been concurrent with the rise of theists in academia within philosophy departments (see: Atheism and academia).
