You can’t hug Atheists, our reptilian skin is poisonous, and we smell bad!

Looks like a pretty good documentary.  I was especially interested in the various clips of pundits trash talking atheists.

Everyone ends up to their own experiences in life. We should understand why they become such.

Huh?

Take care,

That is a sweet little clip. I agree with the sentiment.

But I wonder whether Atheism is constitutionally protected. Is it a religion?

Also, I like that we finally have a President that will, at least, acknowledge “unbelievers”.

As a fabrication of our own consciousness, our assignations of meaning are no less “real”, but since humans and the fabrications of our consciousness are routinely fraught with error, it makes sense, to me, to, sometimes, question such fabrications.

NO and NO!  Only christianity is protected under our sacred document given to you by the saints, our founding Fathers, and they always had jesus in mind when they wrote it. So no godless heathens here! And all of our presidents have been god fearing fundamentalists who believe in the truth of the bible. All others are bound for eternal damnation in a lake of fire where democrats and socialists will writhe in agony forever. At least that’s what Glenn Beck told me and I believe him because he dresses like Tom Paine, one of our founding fathers.

Biting satire, noted and appreciated. However, my, perhaps, seemingly inane question was asked with sincerity.  I think that constitutionally, non-theistic secular humanism can be considered a religion, but simple atheism (belief that there is no God) cannot be considered to be a religion.

I don’t know, man.  There’s a Church of Atheism, but as far as I know there’s no Church of Humanism.  I think you may have things backward.

EDIT
I fixed me grammar.

Here is one church of humanism:

http://secularhumanistchurch.com/?page_id=8

Atheists who are guided by a deeply held belief, such as those in the Church of Atheism, (i.e., that our lives should be guided by science, reason, and reality), could conceivably have a constitutionally protected religion.

But simply not believing that there is a god, is not a religion.  (I’m not saying that I like that religions get extra protection than persons with no religion.)

edit: i thought i needed to correct a typo, but i didn’t

Well I’ll be dammed.  There is a church of humanism.

Guh, why?

I’ve long thought the best part of being an atheist is not having to go to church anymore.  I HATED church.

I don’t think that you will be dammed (unless you live with a colony of beavers).  And I am with you on the not going to church thing.
