Carnival of the Godless?

Black Sun Journal » Archives » Carnival of the Godless #62:

Interesting looking weblog for those interested in naturalism.

I take exception to the title, though. Sounds good, but a "Carnival" only makes sense in a framework of fasting in preparation for religious revelation. I don't like "Godless" much either. Why define oneself in negative terms?

This is part of what is so extremely difficult with being a naturalist- a great many weighty, vivid associative terms come from some religion or another.
