Hug an Atheist Day
Today is the 4th anniversary of “Hug an Atheist Day.” The day started June 1 at midnight and ends June 2 at midnight, a time during which anyone can enjoy “an atheist’s warm embrace.”
The day of atheist hugging was started as a Facebook group, and instructs invitees to:
1. Find an atheist, agnostic, ignostic, nontheist, antitheist, antireligionist, apatheist, secular humanist, skeptic, misotheist, dystheist, structuralist, freethinker, naturalistic pantheist, absurdist, deist, therevada buddhist, mahayana, zen buddhist, nihiilst, marxist, pastafarian, spagnostic, gropaga, existentialist, or anyone else who doubts the existence of a god.
2. Run up to that nonbeliever, and give him/her a gigantic hug!
This might be a hard thing for the hardcore true believer to do, but this type could certainly use some practice in the area of kindness and tolerance.
