Atheists are starting to gather in their own churches. Interesting stuff.

Godless Congregation sounds like a black metal band.

I don't know, though. Seems unnecessary. I'm really opposed to people going out and doing stuff. I want everyone to just sit inside, watch some tv, and wait to die. Exerting effort to gather like this seems to be, in my opinion, an attempt to make a statement such as "Hey look, we're atheists! Look at us! LOOOOK!"

I've said, when you become a card-carrying, dues-paying member of the American Society of Antiphilately, not collecting stamps does become a hobby.

Some people are proof that G-d exists; evolution would have prevented them.

Boy. I can think of some things that are more unappealing, but many of them are cartoonish in their suckage

Descartes is sitting in a bar, having a drink. The bartender asks him if he wants another. "I think not," he says and vanishes in a puff of logic.

After reading it, it seems it's more about getting the social benefits of church rather than WOOO ATHEISM RULES.

I think the potential downsides of this could outweigh whatever good comes out of it. I for one don't want to see atheism become dogmatic. Although this article seems to be about taking the best ideas from religion. Still...not sure this is a great idea. Depends how it turns out.
