RE: what do atheists do on Sunday?
My little sister turned 8 on sunday, so we had a huge birthday party for her in which I had to cater to the needs of 25 of her classmates. Needless to say, there was a lot of laughter, and noise and little kids running around the house. Thankfully, we had a schedule so we kept things organized and fun. The kids watched a movie, and then we showed them all a slideshow including funny moments with my little sister! My cousins and I also served icecream that had sprinkles and delicious melted chocolate to pour on.

Everyday is judgement day. Use your judgement, use reason.

RE: what do atheists do on Sunday?
Responding here to the question in the thread's title.

This past Sunday, I went out on the boat.

But as I'm a new de-convert, I think a more profound answer lies in what I do not NOW do on a Sunday.

1. I DON'T worry about whether I'm fooling myself about whether I'm saved or not. I was always so afraid that I was only THINKING I was going to Heaven but was possibly on my way to Hell instead.

2. I DON'T wear ankle-length skirts.

3. I DON'T spend an hour getting fancied up to sit demurely in church or teach sunday school.

4. I DON'T sing in the choir and cringe as the other choir singers constantly fail to hit their notes.

5. I DON'T drive home only to have to drive back to church to repeat the whole experience again for the evening service.

6. I DON'T cringe in secret embarassment and think "omgosh, this is so retarded" and then get a sudden mental spike of terror and start thinking that oh noes, I'm not a real Christian! I'm going to Hell!

7. I DON'T walk around the church in despair.


But I DO play Skyrim.
I DO read up on stuff.
I DO still think of others' needs.
I DO feel an amazing sense of peace and fulfillment that was lacking while being a Christian.

Oh, I could go on for so long.

RE: what do atheists do on Sunday?
Normally I work all day programming. Come Saturday I need a break and a lay in. Sunday I try to get down to my own research but it's normally Monday when I can face programming again. Unfortunately that's when I go back to work which is really frustrating. So I try to get as much done on Sunday as I can. I want to do something meaningful with my life and Sunday is the only time I can.

I have worked on Saturdays as well but it isn't sustainable.

If I need anything from the store, I shop Sundays a half hour before church lets out. Empty stores and tons of cashiers waiting for the after church crowd.

I work, take a nap, and do jack shit for the rest of the day. Well, I might do laundry. Other than laundry and feeding my face and working, I avoid anything productive.
