Traditions in Atheism

I generally dislike the label 'holiday.' 

Being someone who is atheist, I stand on general purpose. 

'Holiday' comes from 'Holy Day' or a religious-centric word. 

I prefer the much more P.C term of 'observation day.' 

Maybe I'll insist on calling it 'obserdays.' 

Obserdays. I like that. It sounds a lot like Absurdities. And of course it is a little tongue-in-cheek mockery of theistic traditions. 

Cultural memes. Religious memes. They differ from…

Communities within communities. Social interaction for pack animals stuck in hive animal environments. (Aka, someone rescue me from the BURBS!)

Hey foodies, do-it-yourselfers and all others strangely obsessed with the 'I can do it so much better for so much cheaper' attitude. 

Hell, this will probably apply to environmentalists, greenies, locavores, anyone interested in very passive civil disobedience and probably a few cultists, too.  (Cus let's face it. My atheist commune plans are something of weird urban legend here in the bay area. )

Why Do Atheists Meet Together?

A lot of atheists in the United States come from religious families and communities. Coming from that kind of situation, we have to deal with just about everyone around us telling us our way of viewing the world is bad and evil. If religion is very important to us, as it was to me, we also deal with our own internalized indoctrination.…
