Richard Wade at The Friendly Atheist Writes About how Atheists Meet Through Zoom During a Pandemic and Become Close

How a local atheist group reacted to the COVID-19 pandemic and embraced technology and bonded close. This story was told at The Friendly Atheist and I want to push this in writing about the current pandemic.

“I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.”

Stephen Roberts

From the Reason Rally in Washington, D.C.

There was a good article that I saw while scanning The Friendly Atheist recently. It dealt with how an atheist chapter is meeting and engaging and using technology while practicing social distancing. Richard Wade is a retired counselor who has helped counsel people who have difficult times leaving religion. As an atheist he leads the Santa Clarita Atheists and Freethinkers. Santa Clarita is on I-5 in Southern California not far from Magic Mountain. At The Friendly Atheist Richard Wade wrote an article that looked at how an atheist group embraced technology and still maintained social activities while engaging in social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is a good read that shows the challenges and rewards of embracing technology and have an atheist group that is much closer as a result. You can read that in, “The Pandemic Has Brought My Southern CA Atheist Group Even Closer Than Before.”

      • If I remember my Gospels right, Christ became fully human.
        So why are Christians so hell-bent on becoming so Spiritual(TM) and Godly(TM) that they cease to be human?
        (Not just “non-human”, but “IN-human” or “AB-human”)
        I’ve seen the fruits of that, and they are NOT good.
