I'd love to hear the different ideas of Who evolutionists thank today?

Is it themselves?

Darwin?

Or are they closest worshippers?

A God?

A Creator?

Or do they deny today even happens?

But seriously, thanksgiving is really just an excuse for us to have a good old fashioned family dinner. Everyone brings a dish or two. And since most of us are dual canadians and americans, we celebrate it twice a year lol.

Two Thanksgivings a year? Sweet.

If you don't me asking, is everyone of the same belief or does it not matter?

I would quess that they don't even thank anyone anyway.
Thanksgiving is a holiday and tradition for americans.They
will eat their turkey dinner,drink,belch,sleep awhile and watch
tv.They might give thanks to their bosses for still having a job.
But,I don't see athiests thanking anyone period,they did it
all by themselves.

The same people you do. Thanks Giving is actually the celebration of American Indians saving the lives of a group of early pilgrims.

That can open up a whole new can of worms, but I'll pas on that argument on the holiday.

Not everything we celebrate is in honor of a god.

I have an atheist inlaw who is coming over today.. we always joke around. He gives thanks to himself.. LOL! Seriously we DID have that discussion over dinner years ago and he very intelligently made his case for giving thanks for the wisdom of our founding fathers and etc. Im okay with that personally. To each his or her own.. besides, Im not having any group-think bs ( religious or non-religious) at my darned thanksgiving if Im the one providing and cooking the meal.
He goes along with the prayer out of respect for me.. I guess he likes my cooking... and always gives thanks to me with a bottle of good wine.

Not all atheists and non believers MUST recognize a god to be thankful for what we all enjoy as our freedoms on this day.

Thank you for making me laugh


Not every nation has thanksgiving as a holiday. Your question is like me asking you which pagan spirit you pray to when they have that religious holiday up at Stonehenge.

To answer you question: My family and friends...but I don't only thank them on one day of the year.



Reality is awesome!

i don't believe that atheists and agnostics ever give thanks to anything. These folks that I know have tended to be pretty much devoid of a spirit of anything other than their own ego needs, and generally joyless people.

I really feel sorry for them.

It's possible to be an atheist and science-oriented person, and still observe what has become a family-oriented day, and defer politely to those who believe in something that is deserving of their thanks.

I agree with you. That was my origina thinking also. But after talking with several over the last few weeks, I'm not so sure anymore. That's why I want to find out their view directly from them.

Do you personally know any? Or haave talked it over with someone?

Does it really matter who we give thanks do in life? I don't have an God like many people to complain to. Yet! I man up and thank myself for living my life to the fullest!

You're right. Let's not argue today.

But I do not thank just people. I do thank God also.

Of course I thank both all year long too.

In fact, thank you for giving me your view.
