@RytWing:
Wrong again. Atheists don't believe in nothing. We just don`t believe in gods. Also, while most of what you say about marriage is correct, the fact that it started as a religious unification does not mean that it remains soley a process involving religion today. That`s why people can choose to be married by a justice of the peace, with no religious involvement whatsoever. Also, there are legal issues in marriage which spell out legally enforceable responsibilities. These can also be covered with contractual "marriages" but contract marriages, for whatever reason, don`t seem to have become popular. Maybe people just don`t want lawyers involved at the start of their marriage! Aside from that, your point about "happy animals" is well made.

You forget that Adam and Eve precedes Mesopotamia.

"So marriage didn't start out as two people being unified in a church by a priest several millennia ago?"
No. The earliest recorded evidence of marriage contracts dates to 4,000 years ago, within Mesopotamia.
Further, in ancient Rome marriage was considered a civil affair that was governed by imperial law. Churches only got involved after Rome fell, as organized religion`s power grew during the Middle Ages.

@broizfam
Finally an atheist that understand my point. One has to wonder what an atheist missionaries opening line would be though. Have you heard of the power of believing in nothing? Oh wait, or is it not believing in anything?
