I came across a link to this facebook group via the Out Campaign's website
Now, some people will probably criticize it I'm sure, call it cliche, call it a waste of time.. and all of the other cynical answers one could come up with. But for a moment I put my own cynical nature aside to say: I think this is a really good idea.
There is no good reason not to have a day devoted to the awareness of non-theism as far as I'm concerned. We are inundated on the calendar with religious events from all kinds of faiths, most Christian ones being state-sponsored holidays (ie: giving us time off work) at least in the West.
I think there is no better thing for Atheism than a day of its own. We are not nearly loud enough or "together" enough for my liking most days, and I certainly don't mind saying I wish we made a lot more noise a lot more often.
I think a day on the calendar.. is absolutely perfect.
I should hope it would flourish, though perhaps it is nothing but a fizzle or a wild idea that never gets off the ground. Who knows if it will, and I'm sure some people don't care or think the opposite of me, but never the less.. for anyone who is interested (and for those of us who remain facebookians), well... There it is.
