ATHEIST THANKSGIVING: “An Atheist Thanksgiving Prayer” / Dusty Smith ☮
Did you hear about the atheist war on Thanksgiving?
Yeah, me either.
As far as I know, there is no atheist war on Thanksgiving and since the mythological War on Christmas hysteria started well before Halloween this year, it’s a wonder anyone even thinks about Thanksgiving, except as an excuse to do some major belt busting.
However, today I was asked why someone like me, an atheist, even bothers celebrating Thanksgiving due to not having someone to “thank”. I assume this person means since I don’t feel compelled to utter fake and rote statements of gratitude to a mythological man in the sky, I must be incapable of reflecting upon those things I feel grateful for.
