    You know how theres tons of religious cable channels in the U.S?

    Well why not have an athiesm channel? Fully devoted to cool things besides religion like science, evolution, and it can take shows from other channels like family guy and the simpsons, and futurama!

    Even though it wont have much to do with athiesm, it could have a few programs on educating people about athiesm and go into deep detail of athiesm in the U.S.

    Um... no. Although you might have a different cable provider. I have Comcast and there's only one religious cable channel with an occasional religious sermon show on BET once in a blue moon.

    Aaaaah that's probably why. I have Comcast Basic Enhanced and I have things like the History channel, a channel that shows different types of programs from all around the world, the Discovery channel, CNN, Comedy Central, Sci Fi, an ARTS channel that I think is native only to the Seattle area as well as your standard cable channels like TBS, FOX, Spike, C-SPAN etc. It's kind of expensive but I have no other choice as the unobstructed view that a dish would require in my place is blocked by 10 foot tall trees.

    Really? :eek: We have 2.5% atheists here (you can consult wikipedia if you don't believe me) and we've got ONE religious channel, and that one is foreign! :eek:

    The U.S has probably close to a thousand different channels, some local, some not.

    So its not really suprising.

    The Chicks Dancing Channel. All dancing, all chicks, all the time. No pornography, not even overly skimpy clothing. Just hot babes dancing to great music. Sounds ridiculous doesnt it? Maybe so, but it would be among the highest rated cable channels. Its the next 'logical' step after Spike TV.

    Your suggestions for the atheism channel weren't all that good either. What does, say Futurama have to do with it, or The Simpsons? After all, both have had God as characters on the show.
