As the First Church of Atheism site states:
“The First Church of Atheism is formed around the belief that the mysteries of life can be explained through science and reason. We aim to provide a place for atheists to become ordained, for free, as well as a hub for atheists to find ministers to perform their ceremonies. This is our doctrine:
“Nothing exists besides natural phenomena. Thought is merely a function of that natural phenomena. Death is complete, and irreversible. We have faith solely in humankind, nature, and the facts of science.”

Am I a member of this church? Nope. Science is not a god. And who says the people in that atheist church worship anything?

The Sunday Assembly is a congregation that will meet on the first Sunday of every month to hear great talks, sing songs and generally celebrate the wonder of life. It’s a service for anyone who wants to live better, help often and wonder more.

Come on down to hear inspirational speakers and to enjoy a morning that is part-foot stomping show, part-atheist church.

Each event will have a theme – the first one is on ‘Beginnings’ on Sunday January 6th 2013 – with stories, readings and a final address on that topic.

No matter what the subject the goal of The Sunday Assembly is to solace worries, provoke kindness and inject a bit more whizziness into the everyday.

We meet in The Nave on St. Paul’s Road in de Beauvoir, between Hackney and Islington (for directions click here), and it will start at 11 am (latecomers go straight to HELL!). It would be a pleasure to see you there.

Easter Service – Sunday April 7th, 11 am

What? An Easter service in an atheist church, that doesn’t seem right? Don’t worry, we’re as rational as they come but let’s not throw the baby out with the bathwater.

There have been spring festivals since time began, and wouldn’t it be a shame to lose 1400 years of British history over a minor theological difference? Yes. It would. Also, we love chocolate eggs!

*The first batch of speakers reflect our comedy backgrounds, however, in future expect all sorts of fascinating chaps (we mean ‘chaps’ in the gender neutral way, obviously).

It's a good question, because unless you know by what standard you should measure freedom, you cannot know if you really ARE free. Let's get personal. How do YOU rate your own freedom? And what is it that defines the freedom you think you have? How would you answer the following? Are you able to start a business without bureaucratic overload? Are you able to cut down a tree in your own back yard? Are you able to keep the money you earn? Are you able to smoke marijuana? Are you able to read any book, or see any movie? Are you able to express your opinion without fear? Are you able to gamble at offshore online casinos? Are you able to travel without undue harassment? Are you able to buy, sell or trade whatever you like? Are you able to keep your personal information private? The list could go on, but you get the drift. Freedom, when it comes down to the wire, is the ability to make choices about your own life and property. Freedom is NOT about negating the same choices for other people

You have not cited anything from the Communist Manifesto, therefore, you have no evidence that I am a Communist or even a sympathizer to the Communist cause. "Freedom, when you come down to the wire, is the ability to make choices about your own life and property". Does this apply to everyone? You stated earilier that the Civil Rights movement did not involve freedom. Are you also saying that you support gays in their choice of marriage partners and the right to ,in fact, marry the individual that they choose to love? Sounds as if your "freedom" is only selective to the ones you agree should have freedom. Not to everyone. Is that true freedom when some are still denied?

I see you failed to answer the question yet again.

Now to your irrelevant questions. Everything is relative. Freedom is relative. A truly free person could murder if he wished, but clearly no society is for that absolute freedom. Yelling fire in a theater is dangerous to others, so your freedom of speech is restricted here as it should be IMO.

What book are you not allowed to read?

Who can say what is "reasonable"? All this is up for debate and our system debates and decides just what is reasonable and what is not.

We strive for the most freedom while keeping relatively safe. Sometimes things are decided that seem a bit skewed. I am sure all liberals here can remember condemning Bush for curbing what we see as freedoms that were reasonable.

You have the right to condemn them also, but to call us communists for being in a system that is not perfect is irrational and not descriptive of what we are.

Your communist rhetoric just makes you look like an extremist lunatic and thus we shut our ears to your concerns. Speak rational and we may listen.

A good start would be to answer our questions for a change. You keep dodging them and this makes you look like you have no rational answers. Thus we assume your views are flawed.
