An article published by an advocate of the Question evolution! campaign entitled Sam Harris, Project Reason failed quotes Sam Harris's Project Reason website thusly in terms of a description and aims of the project:

Project Reason is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation devoted to spreading scientific knowledge and secular values in society. The foundation draws on the talents of prominent and creative thinkers in a wide range of disciplines to encourage critical thinking and erode the influence of dogmatism, superstition, and bigotry in our world.

One immediate need is to build an archive of the best secular resources on the Internet. Registered users can submit their favorite articles, videos, interviews, etc."[1]

Also, the article Sam Harris, Project Reason failed adds:

...it is extremely hard to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. No doubt the "best" secular material on the internet is extremely poor in quality. In addition, material which promotes atheism is very much like evolutionary pseudoscience material in that it is extremely dull, stale and boring. To the best of my knowledge, there has never been an atheism revival!

See: How stale and boring is evolutionary indoctrination? Is the public fooled or are they suspicious? What is the trend?
