Summer camp for atheists

Here's an interesting article in this week's Economist. Apparently a series of summer camps for kids from atheist families. The article frames these camps in terms of such kids needing social support, but what interests me is that it's another example of atheism being practiced in the same way that people practice religions.

It is interesting. Reminds me of some of the great evolutionary theorists (T. Huxley, J. Huxley, Haeckel, Spencer, etc.) who essentially turned evolution into their religion.

So maybe we all find a religion, just depends on which it is.
