The Secular Web website is a website run by Internet Infidels and 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).

On the whole, the misguided efforts to promote atheism/agnosticism not been very effective on the internet (see also: Ineffectiveness and weakness of atheist internet outreach).[4] On the other hand, Christian internet evangelism has been very effective.[5][6]

Unlike Christianity, which is supported by a large body of sound evidence (see: Christian apologetics), atheism/agnosticism have no proof and evidence supporting their ideologies.[7]
