Do you believe in Thanksgiving? (Actual question from a religious person)

Do you believe in Thanksgiving? (Actual question from a religious person) November 25, 2010

A few years ago, the Atheist Experience show had a real stumper of a question from a religious caller. “Do you believe in Thanksgiving!? The response is pretty entertaining, and luckily video of the exchange was uploaded.

In other Nontheist – Thanksgiving news:

Herb Silverman (Founder/President of the Secular Coalition for America) has written a piece for the Washington Post’s website on the subject of Thanksgiving ‘Grace’. He finished his article with a suggestion to nonbelievers saying grace:

Let us take a moment to think about where the food we are about to enjoy has come from and to acknowledge those who worked to bring us this food. Let us appreciate the earth, the sun, the air, and the water needed to nourish the plants and animals. Let us thank the farmer who cared for the plants and animals and the migrant worker who toiled to harvest the crops. Let us thank the laborer who processed the food, the truck driver who brought the food, and the grocery store workers who displayed it. Finally, let us thank our friends who prepared this meal and have provided us with the opportunity to be together and share each other’s company.

From Fort Bragg, North Carolina, Rock Beyond Belief wishes you a Happy Thanksgiving, fellow non-theists!
