Added new Feature Essay "Atheism in the Third Millennium" by Kim Walker.
A second generation atheist, Kim Walker explores the distinguishing characteristics of two common perspectives within the atheist community: that resulting from being born and bred with religion and later suffering a crisis of faith and the perspective of those who are raised as freethinkers from the onset. As a conclusion to his essay, the author proposes a new development for the non-religious, worthy of millennial fanfare. Walker's article has inspired the Secular Web to consider possible projects for the future in this regard. Enjoy the first article to be featured on the Secular Web in our new millennium and keep an eye on the site for exciting developments.
Added the September/October edition of The Skeptical Review.

Added a link to "On Freethougt and Philosophy" (2000) (Off Site) by Charles Glenn
Glenn offers a reply to Lowder's editorial, "Is 'Freethinker' Synonymous with Nontheist?", from an Evangelical Christian perspective. He agrees with Lowder that "freethinker" should not be an umbrella term for nonbelievers, but says that Lowder's argument does not go far enough.
