As we know religion is one of the best money making schemes ever invented. I want a part of it however I am far more moral than to con people with lies of salvation in return for riches.

Therefore I was thinking, could I start an atheist organisation, something which helped educated people on atheism and life skills and have it pass as a religious or charitable organisation so it could be tax free?

Anyone got any ideas on this?

In the USA, you could be a non-profit "educational foundation", provided you follow the rules for same.

Nonsense is nonsense, but the history of nonsense is a very important science.

It's interesting to see how this apparently does not apply to religious organizations. Blink
