June 21 is Atheist Solidarity Day.

Post by Nyarlathotep »

Not sure who decided this, but I saw something on the internet proclaiming it to be so.

I can only imagine whomever came up with the idea of "Atheist Solidarity Day" has never actually met an atheist. Some of the most vicious arguments I have seen are between two atheists who didn't think the other was not believing in God the right way.

Either that or it is also "National Cat Herding Day". Could go either way on that.

I think "Cat Herding" would be easier.

I am "The Help" to six cats. I can get them to all six at least assemble in my kitchen by taking any action that makes them think I am about to feed them, like opening a can. I open a can of chili for myself and the come from all over the apartment and gather near their bowls looking at me.

I know of no similar trick for my fellow atheists.

It's a nice idea and all, but so is "Free ponies for everyone" and the latter is more realistic. Ponies exist.

That's because cats all have the same name, pronounced exactly like the sound of a can opener.

For your fellow atheists, have you tried hookers & booze?

Well, to be fair, there are still countries in the world where it is dangerous to say that you don't believe in god. In Bangladesh it can get you murdered by vigilantes. And even in America you probably couldn't get elected to dog catcher if you are too outspoken or even just admit to it publicly. So, if we don't stick up for ourselves a little bit, who will?

Truthfully, I haven't heard anyone mention A+ in a long time, until today.

I think it went the way of that "Brights" nonsense. But I could be wrong, I could have just stopped paying it any attention.

The thing that pointed me out to this "Atheist Solidarity Day" was an email from some local atheist group whose meetings I never attended and I am not sure how they got my e-mail address.

I think I may have signed up on a "Meet Up" site (the kind where you find local events, not the other kind) during one of my rare fits of "yeah, I am gong to stop being a recluse and go out and do things" phases I go through occasionally, that usually last about a day

More like "until I come to my senses" which is usually well before I have to even lay eyes on anyone else
