In an Orwellian scene, large church services that are dedicated to unbelief are springing up in the US and Australia. These congregations adhere to rituals that mirror a modern Christian mega-church setting, but minus one component: God. Atheists gather because they think there are some positives about church that they are missing, and together on Sunday morning they celebrate this present life, their charitable acts, and atheistic dogmas through singing upbeat songs and hearing motivational “sermons.”
This, of course, is more grounds to the long-standing argument that rebelling against religion is, in itself, a religious stance, complete with dogma, ritual, and faith. Whatever one calls it, it is certainly worth pondering in light of one’s own individual faith and belief.
