Due to how those who believe in religion have a place to gather, listen to a speaker, partake in friendly activities on Sundays and other days, it has come to my mind to start up an organization for intellectuals, where we listen to a variety of speakers, educate ourselves and offspring on world and cosmetic matters, partake in picnics and other friendly activities. Does anyone know how to establish such? What will it take besides the obvious which is lacking: resources such as financial, networking with people who have the supplies to construct the grounds and buildings, parking lot; people to staff it, maintenance, the land for the above.
This will be open for anyone, not just those of us who have already freed ourselves from religion, but those who are caught in it-but there will be no pressure for them to 'convert' to Athism.
Rasing my daughter without religion amongst a mostly Christian extended family, this has been something I have wanted to provide for her, then others as well. To the best of my knowledge, there is nothing equivalent for us.
