Book exchange offers alternative

Andrew Copeland, a sophomore from Highland studying environmental biology, reads a copy of “The Atheist’s Bible” at the Fiction 4 Fiction book exchange Tuesday outside Lawson Hall, where students were encouraged to trade any of their religious books for fiction novels. The Secular Student Alliance held the exchange as a way to inform non-religious students about the group as well as alternatives to religious lifestyles. “A lot of the time when you let people know, ‘Oh, I’m an atheist,’ or, ‘Oh, I’m an agnostic,’ it instantly puts this stigma on the person, ‘Oh, they’re different, they’re weird, they’re whatever,’” Copeland said. “It’s sort of good to have a community of support to help each other out and to be there for one another.” Laura Roberts-Daily Egyptian
