I remember reading about the first one of these that opened. It wasn’t called church but it was held at a former church that went belly up. The name stuck and other meetings popped up across the UK some were at simple meeting halls but for simplicity sake the name stuck yet again now they are in the US and you guessed it the name stuck.
Wow, it took them this long? From the way Dawkins and other prominent atheists are regarded by their community, I am not at all surprised.
Its always amused me that you can pretty much apply any religious zealot stereotype to hardcore Athiests. Refusal to admit even the possibility of being wrong? Check. An uncontrollable need to push beliefs on others? Check. Belief that he/she is party to the truth? Check check!
I'm sure fellow form-members can come up with a dozen more commonalities.

Well that's the beauty of agnosticism. You can still have an opinion on what you think is the most likely truth based on the knowledge that you have. .........
Just because I'm an agnostic, doesn't mean I don't believe in many things that mainstream science dismisses (like ghosts). For example, this allows me to have an opinion on the afterlife without having to believe the boring one that atheists believe (that we just stop existing).......
i ain't joinin no athiest church unless someone can prove god don't exist!
