Many Humanists and Atheists are increasingly trying to put our actions where are words are. We say we can be good without god, and now we’re ready to prove it.
The Edmonton Atheists have been on the ball with this, organizing an annual highway litter cleanup.
I just came across another great project that I may try to get involved in next year – the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, which starts tomorrow and runs for a week at beaches across the country (and yes, we do have beaches in Canada).
The entire process looks pretty simple, just register yourself as a coordinator, and then go pick up garbage.
There’s already a number of religious, community, and government groups involved. Why not atheists?
Of course, there’s many other possible projects we can get involved in – the BC Humanists are supporting an anti-bullying day in December (which coincides with a Solstice party we were already having). The Harvard Humanists also made 9110 meals for 9-11.
What projects can you suggest?
