Humanist "Churches"
Thought this was interesting... I think we have the need for church-like community "hard-wired" in. See comments from Evangelical speaker near end of article.
Excerpt:

The monthly schedule is church-like, with its parenting classes, guest speakers and small group meetings to hash out shared beliefs. But God isn't part of this Cambridge congregation.

Greg Epstein, the humanist chaplain at Harvard University, is building a God-free model of community that he hopes helps humanists increase in numbers and influence across the United States.

Yes, well, I can see his concern about stimulating humanist groups. Some humanist influence might be nice for a change. We have so missed out on that for the last 400 years. (dripping sarcasm must be noted here)

I find it amusing how they can't bow down to God but for Darwin they make up a whole new holy day.
I guess we really are hard wired to worship.
