i'll keep it short. i don't like this idea. not even a little bit.
I like the idea of an atheist SOCIETY or an atheist ASSOCIATION ... but a CHURCH?!?
Are we sure it's not just an ironic statement/action. Sorta like how Colbert started a real "super pac" to bring awareness to what certain people can get away with (although in a comedic fashion). Here where I live, I know you can get away without paying taxes by being a religion. Is this guy maybe able to build an "atheist temple" and somehow able to make a bunch of tax free money by registering it as a religion to show what religions can get away with? No idea, just thinking up a possible "angle".
it's for real all right, and Dawkins is in agreement with what is being said on this thread - NO!
NO WAY!!!! Donate the costs of this 'church' to charity and stop being an idiot.
