Yeah I was telling somebody I work with that her church is just a community center with singing because she goes to a soft "believe what you want" type of place- which in my opinion is more insidious than a dogmatic automaton factory. There is a group called xenos that kind of reminds me of that as well. 
     As far as a community group for free thinkers- I'm all for it but I'd stray away from calling it church for sure! The godbots would jump all over that equivocation to religion and then use it as a debate point, I can just hear them now. Or go the other direction and call it an "atheist genuflection center", but I think the joke would be lost on most.

Yeah that's true.  Your point about lack of belief in magic is actually a pretty interesting (and somewhat sobering) point about our struggle to fit in to a religious society.  People need a context to hang out and enjoy each other.  Church gives people a significant focal point to build a society around.  Yeah it's based on bullshit - and honestly I think a lot of people in it even really know that in their hearts.  But the society they create, and the rituals they share truly ARE powerful, even in the midst of the bullshit.  I vote we start a church of non-belief!  And actually attend for more enlightening non-bullshit-laden philosophical purposes with the occasional bake sale!

It is obvious that lack of belief in magic does very little to encourage discourse so...... Anybody here ride bikes? make art? build things? play music? have activist causes? write? debate?
