Default The Way of the Heathen

Hadn't heard of Greta Christina until her book The Way of the Heathen: Practicing Atheism in Everyday Life was assigned at a Humanist Book Discussion meetup.

Finished the book last night. Think it is terrific and I love Greta.

How do you 'practice atheism'? What does that even mean?

Indeed. It looks suspiciously like someone is holding atheism as their 'religion'. and

Speaking of which, many years ago, back in my university days, I was sitting in a coffee shop with a few friends. Someone was talking about religion and asked each of us what ours was. One of our number said he was "a practicing Catholic".

I wished him luck and said "I hope you eventually get good at it". It was a remarkably popular joke.
