    What do you think of a day of celebration for the whole of the world?

    We have many religions and many days are celebrated.  What about a day that does not discriminate but celebrates ALL humankind?   We could perhaps even give it a name such as DOUG DAY.  For example:  Day of United Gratitude.  Or if you happen to be an agnostic:  DOUT.  Which could also be a day of united thanks.   This one is going to 'throw the cat among the pigeons'   I think we'll find out a lot about tolerance and intolerance here...

    How About Cats Day? A day where people all over the world should care for cats and don't kill the stray cats on the streets

    Where do principals come in? Should I abandone my principals so that others may advance theirs or should principals be outlawed. What gratitude should I have for those who would gladly cut off my head or promote an ideaology that contradicts mine?
    I am very intolerant of such people and I believe you, perhap well meaning, are very naive and  very eager to point a finger and judge others. This, I think, makes you very intolerant.

    I think a global day of celebration is a fantastic idea provided you keep all aspects of religion out of the picture. A lot of you religious people hate each other remember and it's going to be a very long time before understanding  replaces hate, if ever.
    Make it a day to celebrate humanity where those that can afford it work free. The billions collected on just that one day would go toward humanitarian needs such as feeding and educating the poor, curing rampant illness, and providing clean water, etc., etc..
    George Carlin once said; "Keep thy religion to thyself." If we could do that, tens of thousands of young lives would be saved every year and humanity might just have a chance to survive it's own wrath...

      I rather resent that word, 'you' in there, which, I interpret as inferring I'm a 'religious' person and espouse a particular religion.  I do not.

      You "resent" far too easy Tom, no dispersion intended. I don't have a religion either. So what should I have said? "A lot of the worlds religious people" perhaps?
