This week’s question comes from Tristan M. Tristan asks, “It seems to me that the marriage ceremony is a fulcrum for the perpetuation of blind belief. People would like to marry and families benefit from a stated commitment. Is there a secular / non-denominational / atheist format for conducting such a union/marriage. Also who, apart from priests and clerks of the court, is authorised to say ‘by the powers vested in me, I pronounce you man and wife.’”
Our favorite answer (non repeating winners only) will receive a copy of “A Brief Candle in the Dark” by Richard Dawkins!
Here’s a hint: Our new new partner has something to say about this, and a pretty good track record too.
