The Atheist Funeral

  • Broadcast in Education

If you liked this show, you should follow TheThinkingAtheist.

Religious funerals are almost always filled with reverent, lofty sermons and messages about a reunion of loved ones in Paradise.

But what about those who are non-believers?  How does the atheist or agnostic wish to be memorialized?  What kind of ceremony or service would he/she want?  What are the attributes of some atheist funerals you've attended?  Or do you want a funeral at all?

We'll talk about funerals, but expect this show to be more than a heavy-handed downer.  In fact, odds are that you'll find this to be a show about celebrating life, giving comfort and having an existence worth remembering.

Your calls and emails (keep emails brief and send to editor@thethinkingatheist.com).
