What is the point of a church for atheists? I don't need a place to go to not believe in Santa, the easter bunny, the tooth fairy, etc. I'll come if they provide places to store the albums I don't collect stamps in.

Think a Church for Atheists does make sense.
Fellowship with like minded people provides a place to share ideas and experiences.
Good Idea

Thanks Lincoln. Glad we might agree on that much!:-)

It was started by two commedians who would be the first to see the absurdity of an 'atheist church'.

I suspect they're intentionally provoking serious-minded warnings of authoritarianism and dogma. Atheists can call their meetings anything they wish and they're not 'worshipping' at all.

Atheism is entirely negative...
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/atheist
and only relevant in regard to religion, gods, theology, etc. I don't see it as necessary for an atheist to define themselves as atheist or agnostic, particularly. Let's leave such labels for religionists or people of faith to describe people. We're all apixie-ists and I think that in time atheism will be just as valuable a description of a modern mind's position,(unless they are mentally defective). Like pixies, gods exist only in myths.

If one wants a positive philosophy there are various humanistic groups: Brights, Skeptics, etc.

Creationists choose to lie about having universal truth, whilst having no universal proof.
