National Day of What, Now?
Oh! I almost forgot! Today is the National Day of Prayer (also known as the National Day of Futility) for our American friends. What is an atheist to do? Well, PZ Myers is up to his regular hijinks, while The Friendly Atheist describes a number of ways non-believers can act as a positive force in the world while believers are busy with their heads in their hands. Other groups prefer to call it the National Day of Reason.
Me? I’m off to continue a tradition started last year (sadly, with no campaign this year). I’m heading over to my local Canadian Blood Services to let them drain a pint. I encourage everyone else to do the same. Donating blood actually will help others, unlike coming together to talk to imaginary friends.
