I've tried multiple times to save your souls but y'all keep refusing baptism into in the Church of Fine Beverages.

So what, you just gonna keep snubbing the good stuff and drinking that p!$$water instead? Freakin' atheists are hopeless.

I like your idea about the atheist cookbook too.

How about Happy Atheist ice-cream Sunday?
Flying Spaghetti with meatballs?
Sceptic scones with 'I can't believe its not butter'?
The Big Bangers and Mash (traditional English dish I assure you)

What do you think?
Love it! Don't forget the Freedom from Religion Fries.
And Primordial Chicken Soup.

I can imagine that if we all got into a room together, it would go something like this:

"So....are you an atheist?"

"Yup, how bout you?"

"Yup"

"cool"

"Yup"
..
(awkward pause)
..
"This punch is good"

"Yeah, does it have...pineapple in it?"

"Think so"

"Cool"
Ha! Yes. There is really nothing to talk about. The only reason atheism exists (to a given value of 'exist' ) is as a reaction to God - claims and, as some have cogently pointed out, even that has practical application only where god -belief impinges on our society in hands -on ways. In a real sense, anti religion is what atheism manifests as, and that only when it gets to be a pain.

I wonder why atheism is include in the religion section but it isn't so much for the atheists to discuss "nothing" as it is for atheists to defend themselves against the stupidity of those loving religious folks who can't leave us alone.
It is a reaction to the claims that god-belief makes good sense or practical sense that causes atheism to become apparent and indeed vociferous. It is the efforts to decry, discredit and degrade those disciplines through which valid knowledge is acquired in the hopes to enhance the credibility of religious claims thereby that gives us something to talk about and indeed, shout.
